    Go to sleep, sonny.

    The 2nd division in Burkina Faso will start tomorrow and until then you'll be able to analyze some football at your taste level.

    If you beat Man Utd well tomorrow you may have just the inkling of credibility.

    City are indeed a MASSIVE football club.

    Unfortunately, they're not even the best team in their own little city.

    It's funny how the ref is always in Fergie's pocket when you play at Old Trafford. Over 6 minutes of added time when there should have been 4? If you can explain that, write it down on a piece of paper, fold it, and stick it up your Stratford End.

    Bloody daylight robbery.

    Who ever said there should have been exactly 4? The time indicated by the fourth official only indicates the minimum amount of time to be added on. For all the wannabe football supporters on this site, could I recommend a swift perusal of the rules of the game. It would make the discussion far more interesting.

    City scored on 90, the board had already displayed for a minimum of 4 minutes of added time. Looking at the second half, 3 goals (before 90) = 3 minutes + 3 subs (before 90) = at least 4 minutes and 30 seconds to be added on + injuries.

    1 minute was added for the city goal in injury time (as per the rules) => a minimum of 5 minutes 30 seconds of added time. United brought on Carrick in the 92nd minute => +30 secs (as per the rules) and we arrive at a minimum of 6 minutes.

    United scored after 5 minutes and 26 seconds. Another minute to be added on for that goal, and we're approaching 7 minutes of added time. All is fair, unless you don't know the rules of the game, like the majority of posters in this forum.

    But hey, its much more fun bashing United through your (not specifically just knobspots) own ignorance than engaging in proper football discussion.

    The chance was there for Man City to get the winner as well. Great teams don't hold on for the draw. United deserve all the credit for going for the win , City didn't. Extra time at the end was an opportunity for BOTH teams.

    Dear Palynka,

    Those rules are a product of the fertile imagination of some football fan(atics).

    Thank you for your query.

    Best regards,

    The FA

    thought that it was a good game. gutted we lost in the end, but dont feel cheated myself at all. sometimes thats how the game goes, would rather play a good game and lose to united then to have been wiped 4-0

    Really though, I just love making you waste your time writing all this stuff.

    ps. it's 30 added seconds for a goal, not 60.

    mateulose, is that you? I can't remember anybody else with the same juvenile outlook as thinking that people taking the time to interact with you is the equivalent to a "waste of time". Do you not think educating you is worth my time?

    PS: Wrong!
