Tag: Podcast @ 6:18 am

A Vincent Kompany header saw city drawing level with United, as Mancini’s side went ahead on goal difference

With Fortyfive minutes played, Kompany rose above Chris Smalling to head home the winner,leaving United chasing shadows in the second half.

United started with Rooney alone up front, Ji-Sung Park playing alongside Giggs, Scholes, Carrick and Nani in midfield with Smalling and Jones replacing Evans and Rafael in the back four.

After a first half virtually devoid of action, City were ahead just before halftime.

A David Silva corner was missed by Chris Smalling, leaving Vincent Kompany free in the box – the City captain made no mistake, heading his team into the lead.

The second half saw United tryin to
claw back the deficit, with Welbeck, Young and Valencia replacing Park, Scholes and Nani.

United were never close to an equaliser though, as City ran away with a 1-0 win which seals a 7-goals lead for them.

City still have to play Newcastle away, while United face Swansea and Sunderland.

The race is still on, with City facing Newcastle away and QPR at home.

  • Let me kick off the comments in this post.Come sunday, if City win and United draw or lose then the title is theirs. City lose and United win the title is ours. City draws and United draws then it goes down to the wire. City draws and United win then United go back to the top and will have to win against sunderland on the final day. City Loses and United draws then will have to win against sunderland

    Which mathematical equation will United and City fall into. Hmmmmmmmmm………..

  • ash is the man

    Fergie declares he has never played for draw in his life- well he could of fooled me………….
    I love and respect that man, he never gives up and always fights with fury but the VERY SAD fact is the team selection against city was nothing short of horrific and he soley has the blame for that. Such a mistake and we and the team have paid the ultimate price :-|

  • Here is a rare good piece by EPLTalk:

    If you ignore last night’s poor game and look at EPL season as a whole, it feels pretty good to read this piece…

    “Despite yesterday’s loss, despite the injuries over the course of the season, despite watching players struggle to grow into their positions, despite not qualifying for other tournaments and despite some news outlets quietly asserting that this Manchester United team is not one of Fergie’s best, this team still fought to the top of the table with spare parts, glue and spit. Even way back in February and March when City had a substantial lead, United still fought when it was easy for other teams to give up, they continued to fight. And even if it comes down to the wire, to the last day of the season, it’s not going to be easy for City. They will have to earn it, struggling and clawing tooth and nail until the final whistle on May 13th. And then defend it. THAT is how you get to 19.”

    • @Opti: I’ve been unwittingly directed here from the Reuters website – so no smarmy comments what I’m doing here please. I am a City fan.
      Opti – very true. Hate to admit it, and as much as I dislike the man, he does some magical things with your players. It’s down to the wire. No mistake, Newcastle will be difficult for us, and I don’t think Sunderland away will be a walkover. It’s down to the last game of the season. May the best team win.
