1-0 42′ Wayne Rooney
Phew! We dominated that game but we just couldn't put away our chances.
Grinding out the win. Seeing out the games to the end. United are in fully fledged title run in mode right now.
The toughest game before the Derby will be next Monday against Blackburn away. That is no gimme. United have a relatively poor record there. If City take the win as expected at the weekend pressure will be to make sure United take something.
If United win that game which i can see will be difficult against a scrappy blackburn side, I look at their other fixtures up to the derby and can see them winning them all.
Heard there was a penalty incident but wasn't given!? Fergie paying off the ref as per usual, sometimes it's for decisions but usually it's for his trademark Fergie time.
Sod off! We were on the sore end of a tough penalty call against Newcastle at Old Trafford that only netted us 1 point. We were lucky to get away with the call today but that kind of stuff happens. The ref and linesmen didn't have a clear look and it was a close call. United were the better side by far and it would've been almost criminal for Fulham to escape with a point. You're just another bitter because you're club can't produce.
Funny, I didn't hear you say this in the City-Stoke article about City. Anyway that's about evens now for the penalty that shouldn't have been awarded for Newcastle against Ferdinand. Which cost us two points.
Probably a penalty. Ferguson agreed after the game in his interview. Bad evil ol Fergie right? He (rightly) pointed out a possible penalty for United in this game too. He also pointed out how Fulham were comprehensively outplayed and if they had taken something from the game they would have been fortunate.
Lucky lucky United. Right? City don't get lucky either right? Lets not forget too quickly Stoke almost certainly should have had a penalty at the weekend.
Lets not forget United should have had pens elsewhere. Newcastle in November springs instantly to mind.
But then one more thing- penalty kicks aren't the same as an actual goal either. http://www.premierleague.co...
Most of this kind of thing evens out over the season- it is boring to hear people moan against United when decisions go their way but silence when they do not.
If a ref is not 100 percent certain he will not and SHOULD not make a call like that. On balance it happens to everybody.
Officially ignoring the junkie for writing so many stupid comments this season. I encourage people to do the same.
I just can't wait for the city united game. If it lives up to the hype it could be game of the decade.. Let's just hope both teams will be fired up and give us a cracker
If i had to call it right now, City will win that game, but they will be more than 3 points behind before it kicks off.
Which means United would just have to take the same number of points from their last 2 games as City to be champs. It will go to the wire then, but the derby will not decide the title IMO
If the title is still totally in United's hands after the final whistle there is nobody else you would back as much as them to close it out.
i thought carrick got the ball but it was a definite pen but we got that awful decision against newcastle so maybe it just evened out. but we had 10 shots on target and 19 attempts so if fulhum got anything out of that it would have been disgrace.
What happened to the passing at the end!? and should of been a penalty.. we was quite fortunate there :D United till i die!
weird goal, but the result is the most important ;)
Guys, make sure you are approving all submissions not just the Utd highlight videos. There are submissions there for days and they can get old if they are not approved soon after. For example, if a user wants to submit a champions league preview article a day prior, it may not get approved until after the game is completed the next day. Ideally, they should be submitted/approved in a timely fashion
No ones bothered anymore on this site, the only articles people approve and comment on are highlight videos and important breaking news and it will most likely stay that way until the people who run the site get their act together.
@Cybersnake I couldn't agree more!
I have to give credit to you buddymagoo for being one of the few people actually bothered to keep the site alive although at the same time all it's doing is creating more pages for the site owners to earn Ad revenue from.
Thanks, I love this site! I just haven't got the time to continually post articles unless it has a little bonus. It's not just me though, a lot of people here contribute to this site. It would be dead without the likes of you, freeduck, mezzo ,zeddy and more recently jak3y13oy. I just hope the people who run the site can get it sorted on their end.
I really hope City and Utds next game is for the title. Would be a great game to round off a great season.
Well fought result...shows how average our midfield looks without Scholes playing the full game. We were very lucky!
