Patronising, condescending twat
Hmmm...I understand you like to 'drink it in' rather a lot.
And as for the fondness for swearing...is that you, Martin?
He wasn’t wrong tbf, but was referring no doubt to the moment, rather than the wider picture. Teams may go on to win it in a similar fashion, but not with the same dramatic backstory.

The timing and drama of the goal (along with Edin’s) was only part of the picture. The way that season had unfolded (the Charity Shield, the two teams neck and neck and interchanging all season, the 6-1, the crushing disappointment of Swansea and Arsenal away, the high drama of Spurs and Chelsea at home, 8 points behind with 6 games to go, the Kompany Derby, the tension of Newcastle away) added to the drama of that day and it very nearly all slipping away from us at the final curtain - after a 44 year wait during which united had increasingly rubbed our noses in it, conspired to mean it will never be repeated.

Certainly not in my lifetime.

Treated myself today to a portion of fish & chips - £7.15. I used to have a pocket-money job in a chippy back in the early 60's. Fish 1/- , chips 6d (equivalent to 7.5p), 10,000% increase
If I worked a full day, they would feed me pie & chips, 2 rounds of bread & butter, a cup of tea with a woodbine.
