FUCK. Villa just equalised. I've got a bad feeling.
at least the hammers won yesterday, stops my da pulling his hair out.
will not be at Man Utd too much longer IMO.
which is bad, since i have rather a large amount of money staked on them
that defence is shitting me up big time. It's like we're back in the glory days of Laurent Blanc and Mikael Silvestre. Tevez has done nothing I'm afraid, I like the lad's attitude but he isn't good enough.
or this is going to turn out badly
I do not understand why so many United fans have such a hard-on for Tevez. He's scored 3 goals all season having played more games than Rooney.
the boy can dance.
i get the feeling Man U will pick it up in the second half though. :(
Tevez'll scrape a winner in the 89th
VILLA AND THAT
1711: "If Vidic hadn't made that mistake to let Torres score we would have won the title by now. We need this win today - BIG second half - otherwise the title might be on the way to Merseyside."
Max, London, via text on 81111
'Max' from London. Typical.
There are few teams I have less faith in when it comes to playing United.
Villa have been shot to pieces for months and they're pissing this. Fucking diabolical.
I still see them equalising and winning it.
you fucking cunt
Knew it. Outplayed all game, and still pop up at the end.
1740: He's done nothing of any significance apart from score two unbelievably crucial goals - that is why Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best footballers in the world.
that doesn't make sense does it? he's one of the best footballers in the world cos...you know, he's really good at football. one of the most important footballers in the world because he scores crucial goals.
They were ace, from what I saw.
I'm not sure whether to be pleased or disappointed. I wanted Man Utd to drop points so hopefully we could mount an unlikely title challenge, but on the other hand I will despair if Liverpool get their hands on the trophy. Imagine the torture we'd have to go through, it would never end.
Riley added another minute on after the goal
Are you saying you'd play exactly the same with 5 minutes left, than if you'd had 2?
to the extent that even O'Neill was waving Milner to hurry up and get off when subsituted, and every time Mr Reilly made a point of looking at his watch and tapping it in a 'it's going to get added on at the end' kinda way.
4 was expected, but there's no way that 5 was an obscene amount to add on.
Marcheda, you absolute hero
pays me about 140
crikey, that was pretty exciting
but i had a feeling that Utd would pull themselves together. That feeling was wrong of course, but i'm not complaining too much now (although the game itself was painful)
!what a game football is
crap performance but what a result. Told you that Macheda was good. Loved that camera kiss at the final whistle, have that Gerrard you cunt.
WHat a fuckin feeling! incredible! weve won the fuckin league. JESUS! THAT WAS AMAZING. I jumped up, knocked over a wine glass and it smashed every where! It was brilliant!
better than if we had trashed them 5 nil. The highs! The lows! THE HIGHS!
as Mike Reilly finds a mystery 5 minutes of stoppage time to add on.
The only positive we can take from this is how poor United look at home. Villa were the better team, but y'know, when you extend the match so much just after United have put fresh legs on, it means nothing.
and of course it's fair enough having a moan that we didnt deserve it but it's silly to blame it on biased refereeing when it was really down to blind luck.
I don't think Fulham had a shot on target.
Stoppage time goals should be disallowed. All of them.
If we'd have been given 5 minutes, it could probably have been 2-0 given the amount of bumming you received.
United still have the advantage, and I still think they'll win the title. I just want to meet them in the CL final.
you've gotten more points from stoppage time goals than us this season..although i might be counting a few 88/89th minute goals.
i cant think of any other wins for us bar Sunderland in the premiership.
They were both quite late on. In any case, a goal is a goal and I don't give a fucking shit at the moment!
you cunts :'(
which was pulled out of thin air by the ref.
i genuinely can't believe how bad yoonited are making themselves look lately.
title race pretty much over now united will have the confidence back
Anything could happen. I was getting fed up of the hype to be honest, was doing my head in - it could only ever come crashing down. Let's talk about best-ever sides at the end of the season.
"pretty much over"? Come off it. Maybe if Liverpool drop points in the next game or two yeah, but it's hardly done and dusted just yet.
United have been below par for much of this season though, Ronaldo's form last term masked the problems up front.
though you have been pretty shocking in that regard, too.
class & dignity etc are lacking more than ever
how so? these seem like words you've just plucked out of the air
complaining. ronaldo. petulance. card waving. etc.
every single time their players lose the ball i expect them to cry and walk off the pitch in a huff based on their body language. even tevez was at it today.
But I think, this season especially, arsenal and man utd have been more a lot guilty than others.
gerrard and torres could leave it out a little, and i do get annoyed because they should present themselves better sometimes. It's a shame to a side you support act like that - and as a leeds fan, i know that more than anyone with jermaine beckford (well, except for maybe united and arsenal fans with fabregas and ronaldo). However, to suggest that anyone's been in the same league as ronaldo, rooney et al this season for that is pretty laughable.
I can only assume you've missed Gerrard and Torres' diving, Mascherano's apparent inability to make a legal challenge and Alonso's constant crybaby antics.
like i said, i wish they'd leave it out. but to suggest that man utd present themselves worse than liverpool would be a disgrace. A DISGRACE.
- Graham, Ilkley.
during the mid-late 1990s. Schmeichel would bail them out at least half a dozen times a game, they'd create nothing themselves, and then Cantona would pop up and score a goal sometime after the 85th minute.
The 'mark of champions' is when you can be totally outplayed, made to look completely ordinary, petulent, disorganised and ungracious, and yet ride your luck and sneak a victory at the end. Man U made a habit of it 10-15 years ago, and they did the same today.
when he did his incredible hulk face at the camera.
Bet he listens to donk. He looks orange and roided up enough.
'When you got the ball, was there only one thing on your mind?'
'Yes. Score a goal.'
looks the new complete cunt of United.
We looked so, so good for 75 minutes, then just seemed to capitulate. What makes it worse is that i'll be getting stick from smug, glory supporting cretins for the 2nd game running.
you deserved more from that game. i've always liked Villa, hard luck mate.
how many times have you had a season ticket, or followed them away, how many reserve games have you ever been to
away days can be really local and you get to talk to the reserves (and occasionally first team striker) in the local meat market. Fun times!
Consider it this way: Mr Johnson from Buckinghamshire is a highly successful solicitor. Due to his large amount of expendable income, he's got a season ticket and likes to travel to watch them, with Mrs Johnson and little Henrietta Johnson.
Little Tommy No-Shoes, also supports United. He lives in Salford and his folks have been going on since before EVEN the days of Alex Ferguson (pick your jaws up, lads). But because LTN-S is a windowcleaner, who can just about afford to watch them in the pub every weekend, there isn't a chance in hell he's ever going to get a season ticket for OT, unless he wins some bunse.
Therefore, Mr and Mrs Johnson are blatantly more loyal supporters than Little Tommy No-Shoes. Fact.
i wasn't born in leeds & could easily have been raised in germany. Because of my dad (used to hitchhike around europe following leeds yadda yadda), i would've been raised as a leeds fan.
likewise, wherever i raise my kids, they'll be leeds fans. IF I HAVE KIDS. IF I HAVE KIDS. etc.
I've family from Manchester and they indoctrinated me as a nipper. My gran started supporting them after the Munich air disaster, so there's always been much love for United in the family here. I get over to matches when ever I can, or can afford it. Theyve been a massive part of my life since I was a kid hero-worshipping Cantona. I'd stick with them if the bottom fell out and they dropped divisions, of course I would. I also can't stand all that 'we're the mighty united' sneering bollocks. Does all this make me an idiot, kansas?
man u liverpool celtic or rangers, but I don't think i've ever met any Irish everton, citeh or queens park fans
so i've a massive interest in them as well. one of my best mates is an everton fan. but yeah, on the whole you're right
I had the choice of Spurs or Brighton, my Dad used to take me to both in the early 90s. When spurs signed Klinsmann I followed the money. I think Karma has got me back though.
No Irish people support Rnagers. This isn't surprising.
Loads of Irish people support QPR.
growing up in leeds, and especially people of my age - I don't know any liverpool fans who are glory supporters, and even then i only know about 2 or 3 liverpool fans, compared to dozens of man utd supporters with no real reason.
But, at the same time, everyone HATES manchester utd and has a soft spot for liverpool in the league. almost every single leeds fan i know is like this, and growing up i honestly always thought it was as black and white as that
it wasn't really until i started getting to know a few students from elsewhere and posting on DiS that i realised that liverpool aren't universally loved and man u hated universally from fans of other clubs.
People our age were conditioned into being United fans due to their 90s dominance. A lot of my schoolfriends admit to 'choosing' a team to support when they were about 8, which is probably I why I rarely discuss football with them.
In that respect, I can see why 80s children have dislike for Liverpool.
where there wasn't really one dominant team. This has lead to little groups of mid 20s Norwich supporters scattered around the country, presumably cursing their 7 year old selves every season :D
at the end of the season to hand Leeds the title back in 1992.
they just hate man utd slightly more.
all the little scrotes at school decided to support Man Utd when they started winning everything in the mid 90's, i guess that's where it all started.
i'm Leeds because i live in Leeds, i was born just outside of Leeds, my Dad and Grandad are Leeds, and i have been going to games since i was about 4, so not much choice.
i don't understand these kids who support Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Man Utd, and have never been to a match in their lives. yeah, blah blah blah money, but if in 20-odd years of life you haven't bothered to save up £40 (or however much it costs) for a ticket, then you don't care THAT much for them. they support them because they're really easy teams to support. they win lot's of matches, they're always on sky sports (for the lazy cunts who will only go as far as their sofa or the local pub), always finish in the top 4 or 5, and they're great for the little cocks in pubs that like gloating to their friends about results and trophies.
it must be SO boring being a Man Utd fan, that's all i can say.
...but I have no real frame of reference what it's like to support anyone else...
I've only got membership at Chelsea 'cos a season ticket is a bit out of my reach. By the end of the season, I'll have been about 20 times though this season. I understand alot of people can't afford that but anyone who can't make it to 1 game at Chelsea in a season when CL group stage, FA Cup and League Cup games are £24 and usually available on general sale isn't not attending because of money.
Birmingham v Wolves
at least you shouldnt. you deserved a draw, and played very well. made Neville and Evans look paperweight.
im quite ecstatic, but its hard not to feel slightly sorry for you guys.
Agbonlahor had his number for the whole game.
and liverpool to drop some at craven cottage.
obviously horrible to see them being so close to dropping points and not deserving all 3 by anyone's standards, but ah well.
don't think my view has changed from "man utd will win the title, but liverpool have still got a decent chance" all season. everyone: stop being retarded.
I don't think I've watched it in a month.
Alan Hansen is accepted across the board as a man who speaks sense.
I don't like Adrian Chiles. He's like a football dad.
Lineker, i adore.
do the love chiles or loathe lineker?
Like the beige uncle you had who was always quiet and amiable but was actually a massive racist. His spot on Morris's Paedogeddon lost him any lingering respect I had for him. Him and his cosy little boy's club on MOTD1 are just awful. At least Shearer's gone now at least for a few weeks but they way they backslap each other and chuckle at their non-existent foibles is very tiresome. Hanson used to be good value but he seems to have given up now and just sits there like a sack of flinty-eyed potatoes.
Chiles is just nice. Comes across as very genuine. He has the decency to mix his guests up a bit, so you're reasonably assured of having two people who aren't both complete cockends in the studio.
i've got a soft spot for Lineker and i can't help it tho. lets agree to disagree
had to co-erce/instruct machedo to kiss the lens of the camera at the end of the match? Richard Keys then used it as a "and that's united's answer to liverpool" as if it had been a spontaneous act.
