Manchester United yet again...
Tonight was the Manchester United's English Premier League title match against Arsenal at Old Trafford. It ended in a 0-0 draw but with Manchester United leading it only means that the Red Devils are now crowned the Champions. What does that mean for Liverpool fans?
With Man U's title in the bag Liverpool is the runner up. You see tonight was a pretty interesting night as both Arsenal and Liverpool fans were walking together and singing the same tune. An almost unlikely alliance but as the saying goes 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' (or at least it was here in Malaysia).
Both supporters were gunning for the fall of Manchester United in tonight's game and i have to say that Arsenal played good defense in the first half but slacked when it came to attacking. Even though Arsenal possessed the ball 61% of the time they were constantly trying to score from within the box while Man U with their superb cross-overs and long range attacks proved that they had the better foot in offense.
Sadly, in the second half I felt that Arsenal really started to slack in defense and the Devils almost scored a goal. Luckily, it was counted as off sides (the sigh of relief from Arsenal fans were deafening). As the clock ran out and three minutes were added and you can tell Manchester United were purposely delaying (a dirty tactic i might add) and a Rooney's last minute substitution in the last 20 seconds of the game was dishonorable in my books.
I mean seriously whats up with all the kissing and hugging as he walked off the field? Obviously they were just delaying, they really could do that on their own time and not on field time man!
Oh well and there you have it... Manchester United are the champions yet again and Liverpool gets the sloppy seconds.
