Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
But the penalty that Pogba spectacularly fluffed, then got the luck of gods with the rebound, simply wasn't a penalty. The defender clearly went for the ball and got the ball (the replays show the ball changing direction as he made contact). Martial then did the theatricals. Jon Moss didn't have a good view. He's a good ref is Jon but he has a penchant for making occasional fearful cockups, and this was one of 'em. Mark Clattenburg agrees with me (actually, I agreed with him). Viewing the match as a whole I'd say the teams were evenly matched and that Man U didn't deserve all the points. Everton were unlucky. Pickford's totally brilliant, and he's a nice bloke to boot.
At the gathering in Radcliffe after my dad's funeral last week, among others there was me (Liverpool), me Mancunian cousin (Man City) and his younger brother (Man U). It made for an entertaining and animated discussion! They both wanted Salah. Of course they did. I wanted De Bruyne (naturally). Nobody wanted Pogba. Heheh!
Anyway, there's a far more important match on tonight!
