If you know me you will know I can’t stand Liverpool, it was how I was raised as a Manchester United fan and it is what I have known over the years. There’s no form of objectivity when it comes to rivalry of this nature, I follow the one my heart bleeds for always, well that’s how it is in my books. I have never supported Liverpool in my life , I can only respect them but to wish them well is a sign of betrayal to the true Reds that reside in Manchester.
I had bragged about Man U not losing to Liverpool up until Sunday morning despite the haphazard form my favourite team have been displaying since the start of the season. A friend whom I was with on Saturday evening asked me who would win in more ways than one and my response was always United was not losing. When it comes to derbies or rivalries, the form books are usually thrown out of the window.
I thought not watching the game and being in church for our Carol night would help my plight on the evening. It happened Liverpool worshipped GOD too and not the Devil as they confirmed their supremacy in the 24th minute with a well taken goal by Sadio Mane. If you thought the goal was nice then the pass from Fabinho which led to the goal was way cooler. There was still hope for at least a draw, as I had said earlier United was not losing. 9 minutes later Jesse Lingard equalized for the Red Devils to go into the break with a 1:1 scoreline.
Cometh the chance cometh the player, Xherdan Shaqiri now known as Big Shaq who had just come on in the 70th minute put the Kop ahead in the 73rd minute and 7 minutes later Liverpool were 3:1 up through the same man. There was no coming back from this for United. No huffing and puffing could have turned the game on its head in United’s favour.
A 3:1 loss was a fair result after catching a 30 minute highlight of the game. Did Jose Mourinho deserve the boot? Maybe?
Up next for my beloved Manchester United is a trip to the south of Wales to face Cardiff FC. A new temporary manager might be employed in the next 48 hours but for now it is Jose Mourinho’s assistant; Michael Carrick that will take charge for now.
Thanks for your time guys and enjoy the rest of your week. BLESS!!!
