Agree with what posters are saying about it being fucking idiotic to do it that stage of the match, apart from anything else. i was fuming.
BUT I must’ve missed the headlines about arsenal and Leeds fans chucking stuff on the pitch AT our players? Or the Everton fan who chucked a flair on?
you wouldn’t see that anywhere else. Why
Because there are no cameras involved.
Remember this when they come out with the tired old ’no fans’, ‘plastic club’, ‘tourists’ etc:
We know that it’s regurgitated talksport clickbait crap which does nothing else but mark the speaker out as...
the best thing about that back page is the juxtaposition of the ‘I’m here to kop some trophies’ bit about a bang average striker the bindips paid £32 mill for and who won *checks notes* the square root of fuck all.
A neat microcosm of how the media in general report on the two clubs.
Just watching the match back now on sky. Three observations:
1. Sancho not celebrating his goal. Respect? Or worried that by equalising he’d just succeeded in poking the bear?
2. Lingard and Rashford simply didn’t want to come on. Their body langauage on the touch line was shocking.
