We just threw it away today. The attacking players were fantastic, defence were abysmal.
This will make the derby at the etihad very very interesting. Best of luck, just so that you don't think i'm a total @ss :P
THANK Y0U EV3ERT0N!!!!!!!!! I called a lose, but they got a draw which I'm not mad@. City's up 1-0 @the moment, all they have to do is score another and play strong D. This is way I watch the EPL, even if its not your team, you gotta love the way the season is ending. Derby Derby Derby. CTID...
Was a fantastic spectacle and match, advert for the Premier League once again. In truth United messed up badly, but Everton must take credit from creating a bunch of really top quality goals as well. United defended poorly against some really good Everton attacks. Jelavic looked immensely dangerous from the start and Fellaini was used to shake up the central defence, it worked far too well. It was quite mind boggling to watch. It was really United's to throw away, at 4-2 Evra crashed an attempt onto the post when it was seemingly a cast iron goal from a Rafael cross. Rafael is to be noted because for all his attacking today, his defensive ability was under scrutiny and he was shown to be some way short at the back and culpable. With City beating Wolves, despite all the thoughts that the title had been lost and the Derby could be meaningless, we now have a massive, massive game. United will not be happy, Ferguson will be furious City have been allowed a chance to go top again. For City it is a must win, and United just a must not lose. Deliciously balanced for Monday night. Hold onto your hats people....we may have a classic remembered for many decades coming up.
i dont even think the defenca had a particualrly bad game the finishing on both teams were clincal today.. and if evra had scored to put us 3 ahead it may have been diff... that said at 4-2 we should of just closed out the game.. i'm surprised fergie waited so long for subs.. if we dont win this title this would be the day we lost it
I agree with you here but its still in our hands we have to not lose a week on monday and we will be fine. United always do it the hard way and this season makes it no different. Look forward to the game a week on monday wanted a derby like this for a long time.
Evans and Rio were extremely poor in the air, they half arsed every challenge on Feleini in the air. This has been happening all season and it's cost us far too many goals. It's like Evans and Rio don't know how to jump off the ground. Vidic has been sorely missed, his aerial defense is second to none. Smalling should of replaced Rafael at half time to deal with the longballs and because Rafael has shown before that he doesn't have the concentration for the full 90 minutes, he just switches off for no reason.
unbelievable, we deffo need new center backs to replace vidic!
Well not really since Vidic will be back next season and by the time him and Rio's careers come to an end, I'm confident Jones, Smalling and Evans will prove worthy replacements. That was an amazing match though with alot of great goals but ruined by some poor defending, that's not the first time Everton have come back from 2 goals down to snatch a draw late on. I guess it really does come down to next weeks Manchester showdown. I'm confident.
I thought the center backs played ok. It was Rafael who blew coverage on 3 of the 4 goal scorers. Rooney, Nani and the rest of the attacking force was fantastic though. I feel bad for De Gae since he had a good match but defense gave him no chance on any of the goals.
OMG! What a match, i love how both manchester teams slipped up at crucial points in the season, its guna be an absolute blast at the derby, cant wait. I wonder if Mancini's mind game have anything to do with it?
united just f&&ked it up so bad for themselves.
the defense was just piss poor. were they sleeping or what? i mean at one stage we were up 4-2, you would think when it was 4-3 they would wake the F^&k up and do their job properly.
the attacking was fantastic, we have the defense to blame 100%. all of 4 of them played like ass.
defending like this against man City can only result in another 6-1 drumming and could potentially lose the league for us.
With defending like that and the form City are in next Monday favours City in my opinion. Everton played great and deserved the draw, the never stopped trying. Cant wait for next monday now!
i still think we'll beat city, it wont be 6-1 or anything but i'd take a 1-0 right now.
if you guys dont win city, you will be making hard for yourselves. If city win every game for the rest of the season at this point they will take it.
Now I think City will take it!
Obviously if City win every game they will take it, their GD will be unassailable. But they have to beat United, and they have to beat Newcastle away from home to do that. Those games don't win themselves. Newcastle in particular are in scintillating form, no mood to rollover to City should City manage to beat United. Newcastle could very well be that little bit of Insurance for United. They shouldn't have to count on Newcastle getting a result after the position they were in, but i fancy Newcastle to get something. United just need a draw at the Etihad. They shouldn't play for a draw, they should play to win the game. But they will take a draw all day long knowing that should finally be enough as long as they beat Swansea and get a point on the last day.
I knew this match would be the hardest. Now it`s just cruising to number 20.
What a crazy season!
Shit, game is on! Winner next season takes the title I guess. S
Our defence massively let us down today, De Gea had no chance with all the yawning gaps opening in front of him. Credit to Everton for taking their chances, Jelavic and Fellaini proved to be a right handful. On the plus side Welbeck shined throughout the game and it's great to have Nani back, I would still pick him in front of Valencia and Young any day. Winner takes all next week I guess.
Both teams played well. But although you can moan about utd's defence, everton's defence made alot of mistakes. Rooney's first goal, a complete miss header by ? ,lol. Serious ball watching going on at times from both teams. I think city will nick it as i said awhile ago, but should be a good game either way.
this season just got more interesting and its been pretty good so far anyway
Tevez and Aguero MUST play imo for City to have a chance. I wanna see both Argentines do work on that day. So excited!
This is gonna be crazy, it's a late kick off aswell and night matches are almost always better, the fans will be louder and it's gonna be fast and furious, the clasico is about possession and skill this will be about hunger, desire and skill. I just hope that we can weather the storm in the first 15 minutes or so because our defence barely copes with people who can dribble or run at you and Tevez and Aguero are two of the best at that. Even if City do win there are still twists and turns, don't reckon they'll beat Newcastle and tbh if it comes down to it, Sunderland away will not be easy at all for us. I hope Mancini bottles it and plays defensive, de jong instead of Nasri :P
I have to agree with you here. I don't want City to win the league and United have beat them at Home already this season so this is now time for the players to show us United fans what they are made of and make to make this unbelievable season one to remember for the time when it matters.
