As I write this post, I have just come from watching the Man U – Spurs game on telly and I am dejected! First of all, we did what we had to do earlier in the day by winning at Hull. It was never going to be easy up there especially when I saw Lucas starting the game for us and playing in the Stevie G position. I am not the biggest Lucas fan out there and today he seemed pretty confused as to what he was meant to be doing on the field. He didn’t know when to attack and when to defend and because of that he made far too many mistakes for my liking. But I am not going to sit hear and write about Lucas but let’s rather focus on our great win.
Hull have frustrated the big four this season but it was clear we were a class above them this afternoon. The longer the game went, I knew it was just going to be a matter of time before we scored and thanks to Alonso just before the break we took the lead after another wonder strike from him.
The game changed when Hull had Folan sent off for kicking Skrtel. It was a clear red card and I think the FA may take further action as that was verging on assault!! he could easily had broken one of Skrtel’s ribs with that kick. With Hull down to 10 men there was only going to be one winner and we made it 2-0 thanks to Kuyt. I got worried when Hull pulled one back to make it 2-1 as they carved up our defence. But we always had the momentum in this one especially since Hull only had 10 men and Kuyt sealed the win in the closing minutes with another strike.
We went back on top the table until a few minutes ago when United trounced Spurs. At halftime in that game I was getting excited as Spurs were leading 2-0. I never trusted Spurs and I was right! They let United back into the game although United were awarded a soft freekick but I guess we used to United winning dodgey calls at home. The rest is history and United have won 5-2 and they back at the top. #19 seems to be slipping away from us now but we have to keep on fighting. Anything can happen!!
