Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
I agree the game we expected did not happen. Like you I think the injuries spoiled the game. I thought Rashford should have gone off - he could suffer for his loyalty.
In the circumstances Ole did what he needed to do in reverting to a totally defensive game. Liverpool were surprisingly poor and United actually had more shots on target and had two close efforts to score.
I do not remember a United / Liverpool game where Liverpool did not even test De Geah,
I suppose a point each was fair but neither club wanted that.
I watched the City game. - close call th City who took the first half without scoring and Chelsea looking dangerous but City kept them out.
The penalty shootout was marred by the incident of the Chelsea keeper refused to come off to the Manager's order.
City won the shootout. Strange ????
