It was a brave move by Reina and a lot of other keepers would've conceded the goal to Saha to begin with.
    yeah i just saw the replay, Man U got lucky today.

    and Drogba's goal was so sick.

    • I get so annoyed by Man U winning luckily. They're going to win the league now and they don't deserve it. They should have lost their last 3 games, and drew Lille, instead they are still are all but guarenteed the league, and have a chance of repeating their treble.

      On a happier note, my team Coventry are having their traditional 2nd half of the season run when there is no chance of playoffs now. Dowies a good manager.

      • Chelsea is a much better team right now, but they had a shaky start and Terry's injury hurt them.

        • The sign of a good team is the ability to play badly yet still pick up the win when required, even if you are being outplayed, away from home, in an intimidating atmosphere.

          That is exactly what United have done in the last three games away from home. To say we don't deserve it is laughable, how many times have a team gone through an entire season without any luck what so ever when they ended up winning the tittle? Man United have played the best football this year by far, better then Chelsea and deserve to be at the top and win the tittle, which they should do.

          And it was Ronaldo who played the freekick, Saha didn't get the touch, his run was more important then anything as it put the element of doubt in Reina's mind which didn't allow him to collect the ball cleanly and as a result, sort of just popped it out back to O'shea.

              Giggs played the free kick and Saha did get a touch on the ball. I saw it live and I saw several replays.

                West Ham are terrible, so I'm not gonna act surprised. Aren't they being investigated too over Tevez and Mascherano.

                    Unfortunately you are 100% correct. Hopefully Liverpool can power on in the Champions League.

                      Yeah that makes me even happier. I actually quite liked Wet Sham (yes its on purpose) until having to deal with their fans after we beat them in Cardiff in playoff finals.

                      It was a superb game though, and I was almost happy for Tevez to score but you could just feel they were going to lose (even at 2-0 up). They'll probably still beat us twice next year...

                        I'm pretty sure I remember seeing him take it, but I trust your judgement.

                        • what West Ham lost?

                          I turned the game off when they were up 2-0 and i didnt even think of recording it when Tevez scored. After that goal i thought they won, know all i think of when i see, hear or read about West Ham is relagation!

                          • Tottenham has a deadly quick-strike offense, but they really need to short up that D. Berbatov has really been impressive the last few games I saw too.

                            • That West Ham, Tott game was nutso. It is one of those games that even though i don't like either team, i couldn't walk away. I wish some of the haters would watch a game like that, it would help our case.

                              Anyway, i am really starting to like Berbatov. He really doesn't have anything special about him, he just flat scores goals.

                              • Teams like Chelsea fail because they rely on the individuals talent to win games. Ego's run high and they don't play as a team.
