Manchester teams tied at the top(City ahead by virtue of a better GD), but 54 points after 23 matches.

United have been ravaged by injury this season, but just managed to hang in there, but the next 3 weeks will I think spell the end of the challenge.

Matches against
Chelsea
Tottenham
Liverpool

along with Europa League matches added to the mix

and this is the injury list atm

Rooney
Nani
Anderson
Cleverley
Young
Vidic
Jones
Owen
Lindegaard
De Gea

United 2 Racist FC aka Liverpool 1

United momentarily top of the league. Rooney with the goals for United, racist scum scored a late tap in consolation for his racist club. United dominated, and won both on and off the pitch.

Chelsea lost AGAIN Arsenal got a late winner from Henry on his final match to go into 4th place. Tottenham physically abused Newcastle, and stayed in 3rd place with a 5-0 win.

Dalglish and/or Liverpool owners must do something about Suarez.

They are...they're being apologists for his disgusting antics.

Seriously let down by John Henry, if this had happened in the US, the player would have been gone the very next day. You know it, I know it, otherwise sponsors would have started to walk away, yet he ignores it, because it's in England.

Shame, considering the owners are American.

That's what I meant - it's the same group(FSG) that owns the Red Sox, and John Henry along with hot wife do a ton of work for inner city kids in the area. But here he is, completely ignoring not only the initial behavior of a disgusting player, but then the attack on the victim by the entire club.

Oh well...not my problem.

Manchester United defend titles.
Liverpool FC defend racists.

And therein lies the difference between the two clubs in the last 20 odd years.

NYT ran an article condemning the racist behavior of Suarez, and the support he was given by everyone at Liverpool, and yesterday, Suarez, the MD and Manager all offered apologies

BBC Sport understands the apologies "contained the input" of the club's American owners, Fenway Sports Group.

Here's a good one from the Independent. Two paragraphs quoted.

http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/f...b-6804726.html

Quote:
iverpool's more enduring problem is how to salvage the Merseyside career of a player whose latest apology, just like the one he issued on 4 January, offered no apology or regret to Evra. The extraordinary statement issued by Dalglish was the one which displayed most contrition and was so uncharacteristic that it left the distinct impression that Fenway Sports Group – the club's American owners – had ordered it. "All of us have a responsibility to represent this club in a fit and proper manner and that applies equally to me as Liverpool manager," Dalglish said. "When I went on TV after yesterday's game I hadn't seen what had happened, but I did not conduct myself in a way befitting of a Liverpool manager during that interview and I'd like to apologise for that."

In the the 13 months since Dalglish returned to Liverpool's helm, he has been allowed virtually free rein but this was a significant moment in his relationship with Fenway Sports Group and the club's principal owner, John W Henry. The FSG website report of Liverpool's 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford was headlined: "Luis Suarez shows strength of character, scores in the face of adversity" and bore no reference to the hand-shake. But yesterday's New York Times was excoriating. Its report, headlined: "Another ugly incident mars Liverpool's good name," opened with this paragraph: "If the Fenway Sports Group is to be the responsible team owner in soccer that it has proved to be in baseball, it needs to get hold of Liverpool, its club in England's Premier League, and repair its global image."

Yup. I think the NYT actually has business arrangements with FSG - so they were afraid of their global brand being tarnished.

What Liverpool did last night, was something they should have done months ago, and this whole saga would have been forgotten. Instead they decided(wrongly) to look at the issue through the eyes of a rivalry, and not what it was...something bigger than a mere football match.

This was about racism, and rising above our differences to speak out against it, instead they started a smear campaign to slander the victim. Repeatedly lying and saying that Evra has a history of playing the race card(he has NEVER done this in the past) and that he was unreliable as a witness.

Oh well, while they haven't offered Evra a direct apology, they apologized to United, and United accepted it. Hopefully everyone has learned a few lessons, and we can all move on.


*Liverpool have to fire their PR people - horrible, horrible.

Wolves was being torn apart from Manchester United. 5-0 with half an hour to go. The goal difference with Man City is down to 3.

man city vs man utd .....

very important game to be played within a hour .......

with 3 games left for each team and man utd leading by only three points this game is very crucial for both games.

man city needs a win badly. a draw will suit man utd though.

Parag you almost sound like my nephew. Yes you guessed it he is gooner supporter. All this year he hated "Man U" because they were always winning but he always wished Man city to do well. Recently all of a sudden he does not like Man City also. And the reasons are Nasri,Toure and Clichy living Arsenal for Man city. Hahaha

Hopefully, QPR will not just sit down and die as they did against Chelsea. The last match will probably be critical for them to avoid relegation.

Congrats Man City. Utd should never have let it come down to the derby match. Blew an 8 point lead. Don't see City choking now.
