were you playing, watching or both?
I was watching. Often I'm playing, but this morning it was watching.
Arsenal were 1-0 up with about 5 minutes left, and they'd been battering the United goal for a second. The ball was played through to an Arsenal striker and he took it early as the keeper advanced. The keeper saved it with a combination of his foot and his arm, and I thought he gathered it, but the replay showed that the force of the save threw the keeper back into the goal and the defender had to clear for a corner.
The corner was taken and it fell to a player called Curtu, who struck it powerfully into the side-netting. But then for some reason play continued and the ball came back to another Arsenal player, who finished well for 2-0. All the United players complained. The replay showed Curtu's shot going well wide, helped by a flick from Wayne Rooney's head as he manned the post, but that the ball had rebounded from the side-netting , hit a leg, gone back out of play under the full view of Mike Dean (it was Mike Dean), hit a photographer or something, come back into play *again*, been cut back and finished. But the goal stood.
The Manchester United players were torn between kicking off and knocking the ball back to their own keeper in protest or in expectation that a corner or a goal kick would be given instead. They did the latter about four times. Then I woke up.
I'm usually shite in my dreams as well which probably says something important about my psyche
and if I fall asleep on the train home before I play I quite often dream about football and wake myself up doing a pass. I don't know what other commuters must think
when one stops daydreaming about being a great footballer/cricketer /Jedi/whatever... it just suddenly stops happening and I have no idea how old I was.
it's always a pass as well! I don't know if this is bcos that's the only kick you can do sitting down or if even in my dream I am team player
