If you don't drink would it be miserable to do so or still enjoyable?

You and I should hook up for a match.

You know that I am always down to hangout with you and anyone else from the board.  Let's figure out a game to go to this season.

That red card was a terrible decision. Still can't believe it.

I thought so as well considering Kompany had all ball but the announcers cleared up my understanding.   They said 10 years ago that's not a penalty, it's a good tackle.   Now, if you go in with two feet (not saying I thought he did), you'll get tossed.

I think the red will be overturned. The "scissor slide tackle" is when both feet go in at the player with the ball. Not the case here. Kompany got the ball with his right and his left was a foot away from Nani.

City need some luck here.

Hell, I didn't think it was a penaly on any count.   LOL    I remember watching the steelworker ethnic clubs (Italian, Serbian, Irish, etc.) play back in the '50s and that penalty by Kompany was dainty.

It upsets me more as a soccer fan than as a City fan. No one wanted to see this be a 10 vs. 11 game. Ballsy call by that ref.

Another ballsy call ?   More obvious however.   Damn Rooney  !!!

Yeah, that was the right call. Kolarov is a terrible defender.

In about 5 minutes, expect City to take more chances and bring more players forward. Should be an exciting finish.

Had a chuckle on the head collision.   In the NFL, the world would have stopped and penalties called.   In the FA, "play on".

Good game. Pissed about the red card, not about the loss.

To me, that's as good as it gets.   At City against United, soggy, rainy, muddy, ballsy  ....   and neither team had a full force from either the penalty or injuries.

Let me check the TV listings and see if there's an American football game on today.   Well, what do you know?   There's a game on CBS at 1630.    :)

Good day...Canaries hold Chelski to a point, Dempsey and Fulhan crush Newcastle, and Liverpool goes down in flames to lowly Bolton  :twisted:

So are American fans of Barcelona called the Lincoln Brigade?

Ps - Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.
