First of all a big thanks to Scott K. for posting a game thread this weekend. My father is in town visiting and since I only see him 3 or 4 times a year and we very rarely get to watch a match together anymore I decided I would rather enjoy the game with him rather than blogging. I was also playing in a city championships tournament this weekend and with 4 games over the two days wasn't home much. So thank you Scott I owe you one.
Also, a big thanks to leghumpingjihadkiller for putting together his fanposts about recent United news. I am loving them and I hope you continue to post them. You guys are helping to make this blog a better place and the more you guys get involved the better this blog will be. And of course the less I will have to do. Everyone wins.
On the match this weekend. Ugh. I don't know what to say. It should have been all three points and I am very bitter about the way the match ended. It's easy to say now in hindsight but Ryan Giggs needs to take that spot kick. And Johnny Evans needs to be better. But in light of what happened against Burnley last season early in the year and what happened away to Fulham last season I am trying to frame this draw in a positive light. I guess as a Chicago Cubs fan I am an eternal optomist.
So today Liverpool continue their difficult opening to the season with a match against the other team I loathe the most. What do you want to happen tonight/this afternoon when Pool take on City. I am thinking nil-nil draw with both team picking up numerous injuries and red cards would be nice.
