As much as we like to rave on about it, going unbeaten is mostly about luck, especially in this time of hit and miss decisions. It was only bad luck that ended that run in the 50th game after all and that exact same shit could have easily occurred in game #25.
I think they’ll lose. They’ve had a few games where it’s drawn late on and I don’t think Walker, Otamendi, Stones and Delph is the kind of defence you can really believe in. Only takes a couple of set pieces to lose a game 2-1. They conceded 2 to West Brom and Stoke for example.
“Bad luck” is a very politically correct way of describing one of the worst one sided refereeing performances of all time. I’ve had manutd long before that, but that cemented my hatred, cheating on almost juve levels.
Ferguson would do anything to win, especially against Wenger.
He would try and influence referees, opposition players, the media, other managers and even the FA, with bullying tactics and getting his players to do the same, or even just plain cheating.
Rooney dived to get a penalty and there were plenty of other matches where they just kicked us all over the pitch while the ref did almost nothing.
If anyone hasn’t seen it, this is Mike Riley in the most biased refereeing performance in the PL, and it was all went in the favour of Man U and against us.
The most blatant example of cheating by a ref that you are likely to see.
Haven’t even watched the clip but I remember the cunt should have sent Ferdinand off for that body check on Ljungberg early in the game. Gary Neville kicking seven shades of shite out of Reyes was basically a war crime.
This game, along with the 06 CL final, are the two that still hurt 10+ years on.
