This is Man U vs Tottenham Hot Spurs at Old Trafford, a place Spurs have lost, what, since 2001??? Something ridiculous like that.
The first 30 seconds were amazing and the first 30 minutes were unbelievable!!
ManU controls the ball and marches on goal where a foul is committed from a defender from an attack from behind (kids, that is never a good idea!). So
up goes the hand the whistle is blown and the other hand points to the spot. PK.
31 seconds into the match and ManU is up 1 - nil, at home, and I think it will be a long afternoon for the Spurs.
But this is why soccer is better than American football... you have to play all 90 minutes and not get comfortable with your lead.
What happens next is incredible! ManU kept heading the ball back towards their own goal. Yeah. That did not end up right as they loose possession and
Son scores for Spurs! 2.5 minutes in and we are tied at ones.
A few more minutes and ManU gives up possession, again, in their last third. Spurs up 2-1. What is going on?!! And we are some seven minutes in!!
More bad D from ManU and Kane scores, 3-1 Spurs. Then ManU gets the PK scorer sent off for hands to the face/punch! Then Spurs score again (Son,
again, iirc, because we are not finished with the goals!) Kane scores a PK and then Son and Kane hook up for another! 3 minutes of stoppage time and
we hit the half, Spurs, 5-1, and ManU down a man!
That was crazy!! The wildest first thirty minutes that I have ever seen!! And I had only time to drink half a pint!’
I watch a cooking show during halftime. As expected, the second half is possession. Kane scores another goal (or I may have transposed Son’s assist
from the first half for the second).
Anyway, what a game!!
In the larger picture, ManU has a defender problem. It is showing. They will need to correct that.
But what a wild and crazy first 30 minutes!!
Let’s hope Liverpool and Aston Villa can also deliver up some entertaining football!’
