They had the Palace V Southampton game on in the pub before our game & it was riveting. How people can complain about defensive football is beyond me this game had us all clustered around the TV showing At The Races!
Once again we lost points to a team that had 1 shot at goal (& scored), 2 corners where they nearly scored & always managed to get 9 men behind the ball. We created enough chances but kept missing the target & when we miss kicked & got a shot on target the young goalie got in the way. But we scored a cracking goal & played some fantastic football & created enough chances to have won the game. Mind you its not a bad result against a team that won at Chelsea & drew away at Spurs?
Watched the Spurs v Swansea game after our game & we managed to win a few bob with out online bet of 0-0 but Spurs must have had 99% possession & should have won. Almost as wasteful as us.
Managed to get the 8.30 train home with a healthy sushi & a cheeky Sancerre (from M&S Simply Food) only to have to share the carriage with a dozen or so aged Burnley fans who had been on a real ale trawl around Liverpool both before & after the match. Our in-depth post match analysis game was interesting to say the least & ended up with a heated disagreement that Uwe Seeler was not bald when he scored against Burnley in the 1961 European Cup? In Vino Veritas?
Watched the United v Blueshite game at the golf club & missed the lucky first goal (how often do you see volleys like that end up in the stands?) & then watched United sit back & play on the break. It was almost like Chelsea circa 2015 ? Left before the end & missed the capitulation.
Overall just how good were Man City ? Awesome
