EPL Game week 36 VIS-A-VIS FPL, LIVE Manchester United vs Manchester City(Manchester Derby)-2nd half report.


The players are out on the field. At half-time, the ESPN studio pundits were totally unanimous in ruling out a Manchester City comeback. So, are we about to see a flurry of goals from Manchester United in the 2nd half or is Robinho going to create some magic? Only time will tell…

And into the first few minutes of the second half, we have a yellow card. Darren Fletcher, again! On a side note, he is in my FPL team and his FPL manager is fuming.

Into the 50 minutes and Robinho misses one for Manchester City. Considering the top player that he is, he should have scored. I am enjoying this.

And in the meanwhile, Rooney is warming up on the sidelines. Is it for Berbatov?

Whats wrong with Sir. Alex? It’s a double substitution. Ronaldo is OUT and Scholes is IN. And Park has been replaced by Rooney. Ronaldo appears to be disappointed over this move and so am I. I am not too sure what Big-A is thinking. The match isn’t sealed already and Liverpool is on ManUtd’s tail. Ronaldo is still shaking his head.

Into the 65’th minute and the camera shows good ole’ Bobbie Charlton watching from the stands. He is not sporting a smile. Is he displeased over Ronaldo’s substitution as well?..Ahmm!

There is another Manchester United substitution now with O’Shea replacing Evans. And is it the end of road for Ronaldo-Alex’s fairytale? Ronaldo looks pretty hurt and he is not hiding this fact!

72nd minute and Manchester City make a substitution, M Petrov comes in for De Jong. During this change, I could see a couple of Sardars in the red. But, at the back of my head, I am still thinking about Sir. Alex’s move.

Into the 78th minute and Manchester United supporters are already rejoicing.

Now with four minutes of normal time remaining, Petrov narrowly scores for City through a long range shot. Manchester City makes another substitution with Robinho getting replaced by Evans. Just then, Fletcher and Tevez nearly combine to score for Man Utd through a corner.

We are now into the extra time and Ronaldo is still gloomy and has his hands crossed.

Thus, the match ends with Manchester United back on top of the EPL standings. They require only four points out of the remaining three games to win the premiership. That apart, now what happens next between Ronaldo and Sir. Alex?
