I wonder if FA will have the gonads to charge United with failing to keep their players under control? From 02:58 they gang up and body check the ref. I know the harassing of the ref was perfected under Fergie even that was verbals but with some space between them and ref, Manure players are right in his face... ungentlemanly conduct [remember that?] at the very least.
Even though it went to VAR I honestly don't think VVD fouls the keeper, aerial challenge and although DDG gets both hands to the ball he hasn't actually taken control of it.
Completely different player in training to matches...
Sometimes when a new player arrives at your club, you see him in action with your own eyes and just think 'wow'.
That was happening a lot at City at the time, because of the kind of big signings we were making that were transforming the club, but it was not the case with Sergio. When I first saw him, I didn't actually think he was that good.
We had spent a lot of money on him - around £35m - and he had arrived with a big reputation, but in those first few sessions he did not look particularly special.
It is not as if I was expecting him to be dribbling past four or five players or anything, but I was marking him a lot of the time and he did not really do anything at all.
He looked lethargic and was actually quite lazy if I am being totally honest. I was wondering what all the hype was about.
I did not realise just how good he really was until he played his first game for us. He came alive in matches, and everything about him was different.
As a kid there were public information films about not accepting sweets from strangers or accepting their offers of going to see puppies and kittens. Seems like the adult males of Manchester needed to be warned about accepting sweets from strangers...
On a similar theme a colleague used to tell a story about her husband, out on a stag do in Great Yarmouth, and well oiled, punched one of those metallic statues that are now common sight, but back in the early 90s were still very rare... only for the "statue" to respond with a tirade of punches.
Wonder if the Disney [& other parks'] characters ever molest the guests? I'm sure Chewbacca fondled my ex-wife in '92...
