Shenanigans afoot. Derby City rightfully not happy.

Tough loss for Liverpool. City really had to dig deep there and that was a different kind of performance from what you associate with them. Serious hard work when the chips were down and Liverpool were on the rise. Kompany could have seen red easily and that would have changed everything.

It will go down to the wire and should be great viewing for the neutral!

What did yiz make of Sean's book?

I thought it was fairly honest and didn't hold back, especially towards the end.

Quite poorly written in the end. Enjoyable enough if you can look past that. He seems to have no issues with saying it how it is/was/whatever.

Interestingly he was big on the legacy he was leaving behind for his little boy. No mention at all of a legacy for the 2 girls, which in today's world and the push for female sports equality I found to be a bit of an oversight on his part.

Be delighted to see Liverpool hold on and win this. Lots of united fans still bringing up the pitch invasion after the draw at Watford (I think), last year as a sign of misplaced celebration. Theyíd kill to have the squad momentum this Liverpool group have.

That said I hope Arsenal beat yiz this weekend!

I noticed one of the journo's for the times commented how surprised how little discontentment there is amongst the fans at OT; The majority of them probably weren't even huge football fans when they were younger judging by the majority of the people I know who go whilst the majority of knowledgeable reds I know just don't go.
I reckon a lot of United supporters quietly seethe to themselves rather than publically vent. Most know the game is up with Mourinho but for a game like last night they'll still back the team against big rivals. A lot of them see booing their own as something that other clubs do.

I was there last night and heard a couple of conversions where older fans who made reference to being relegated in the 70s when they were in conversion with younger ones who were feeling grumpy about the current maliase. Basically I don't think there is a deep sense of entitlement in the club DNA.
Take out the Ferguson era and the club has won only 7 league titles. Even in the Ferguson era several trophies were left behind and others were won the hard way,

Last night may have seemed poor for some viewers, but the fans appreciated the extra bite shown by the likes of Rojo and Bailly. They might have been firefighting at times, but at least they earned their paychecks. It felt a bit more like the Arsenal battles of old before Wenger had managed to completely castrate the gunners. The bit of dirt thrown in by both teams spiced it up nicely, Arsenal seemed happy with a draw for most of the night with their rolling around and timewasting. Thankfully they left it late to really start trying to exploit United's disorganised defence.

Ha! I'll see you in the tunnel, Keane.

2-2 draw while not playing very well, with a young team and Iwobi. He drives me bananas some times, for all his quickness of feet he often belabors the ball, or just hoofs it against the first defender in his way.

Really liked the look of the Guendouzi lad this evening. Showed for every ball he could and think he was a fantastic presence in the middle of the field.

Mickey Targaryen should have scored at the end, and the one he did ping in from the end line was some rattle.
