Sir Alex ferguson got the starting line up all wrong. Valencia, a key player who has been making a great difference on the right hand side was benched until the last few minutes. Park didn't do much either and the formation before half time was terrible. Over all bad management today by ferguson.
Yeah United were disappointing from the get-go. From boring everyone behind the ball tactics to getting nearly completely dominated all over the pitch. Honestly think it coulda / shoulda been a bigger scoreline.
I didn't think the managers were that bad at all. They had that heated exchange, but in a match of this magnitude I think that's fair enough. They didn't have multiple spats or get too out of hand. I agree with a BBC pundit I saw who said it was good to see Mancini stand his ground and give some back to Ferguson, as too many managers are intimidated by him. Bet the City fans loved that too.
No offense John. I'm not a City or a United fan, but just as a neutral and a big Premier League fan I hope City wrap it up next weekend. I think they deserve it from just about any angle you look at it. They're a great team with a number of outstanding players; Mancini is a very good manager, and they've done what any new champion should be able to do: they have beaten the current champion head-to-head. They've beaten United twice this year - soundly both times.
And I know people can say things about how they may have bought the title, but really what's new? Football and sports in general have been big businesss for a long time now.
It would've been better if it was the Spanish dude, that's for sure.
It was even better watching it life, at that point inter had already killed the chances of AC Milan for the title, juventus fans were already celebrating the scudetto in Trieste, that goal put an end to Milan but gave us a more hope for next's week game for the last spot in the champions league. This was also Ivan Ramiro cordoba last game with inter, 13 years in black and blue, vice captain for 10 years, a piece of history with inter that will never be forgotten. Then there's stramaccioni, the primavera coach who has been doing great, 9 games with 5 W 3 D and 1 L, at 39 he's here to stay, same story as DiMatteo, and he's just as valuable to us even thou we didn't win any trophy's this here after winning everything on the last 7.
Now one last game this Sunday for a spot in the competition that matters most, I'm hopeful, but either way I know next year we'll do better.
