'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hughes Never Thought City Could Win At OT

So, predictably, City are moaning about the added time played. Michael Owen scored the winner with 95:28 on the clock and Hughes was furious as only four minutes were shown on the board.

First, Mr. Hughes, it's a minimum of time added on. A goal and a substitution in injury time meant it would be more. Secondly, the added time was for City as well. It's not like we were given two penalties to win - in added time, BOTH sides can score.

Our defense was extremely fragile and our goalkeeper put in a joke of a performance yesterday. Why, after Craig Bellamy's goal, did not City even try to cross the halfway line? Surely they could have snatched a winner against a United side throwing caution to the wind, going all out for the winner?

But it did not even occur to City to try and win the game. They were more than happy to put ten men behind the ball and hoof it forward aimlessly when it came anywhere near one of their players. You know, big clubs usually try and seize the chance to win at one of their rivals if it's presented on a plate.

But Fergie was obviously right: City are a small club with a small mentality and they never, not for a moment, thought they could indeed win at Old Trafford.

The way people talk about us and injury time you would think it was a 6 minute period of the game which we've bought the rights to where the opposition is not permitted to touch the ball. At 3-3 with 4 mins on the board am I supposed to believe that every city fan was really thinking "oh no, having just scored we have all this jubilation and momentum behind us - we have a chance to beat them at OT! Please stop the game - a draw is the fairest result here!" Boll*cks! Anytime we scored a 90th minute equaliser all you want to see is extra injury time because you know the opposition will be bricking it about losing the game entirely - however, we are better than them and they know it - so they camped in their half and defended like morons.

YOu lot cannot defend this. Stop making a fecking joke out of yourselves. It was blatant match fixing. The ref wanted you lot to win and he played till that happened. Stinks, really.

It's a matter in which if Chelsea slip up and lose the title they can look back in comfort at the only excuse they would have Man U shouldn't of beat City. Isaac you are right though it doesn't concern him the professionals have backed it up there is no argument, no giant conspiracy or anything it was a win, simple.

Every ref and pundit has backed the decision as being completely within the rules and correct to within almost a second. Yet people wearing blue-tinted lenses cannot seem to comprehend any of it. Even funnier is that sky sports news just did a feature on the fact that last season United were awarded less injury time at home than any other team in the ENTIRE league - yet people still talk boll*cks about us "always" getting extra injury time.

Villa fan here....absolute crock of *****. Only at old trafford...

Wow speaking to these City fans and occassional random fans whom are anti-man u is like speaking to a brick wall. Simple fact is you lost, all of your conspiracy's of match fixing and bribing the ref is ridiculous. It has been explained a thousand times over by each individual United fan and football pundit and fans from other teams that it was legit, simple fact is you lost fair and square and there's nothing you can do about it except seek comfort in some pathetic excuse.
