Hi, the game was on at 5am my time so I missed it...was it an exciting match worth watching? I was expecting a dull, defensive, tactical battle...is that how it turned out more or less? I would prefer a Chelsea result, so if ManU won that would make me want to watch it less, and also I don't want to watch it if it wasn't an exciting game. What do you guys think, is it worth my time watching it?

Edit: I do NOT know the result in any way, shape, or form. So don't tell me who won or what the score was.

there is the official match thread, however, as a United supporter, it was a very good open attacking game of football... I was surprised! good game to watch

The crying / intimadating of the Ref was worthy of a listen too! Something Alex Ferguson does every time his team loses. The guy is a egocentric narcicist! Every time United bite the bullet he has an emotional breakdown and has to blame the referee. I mean in his eyes it just can't be possible that his team might lose to Chelsea at the Bridge ! It must be a conspiracy against his red devils. Man I do passionately hate Man united, and Sir Alex is probibly a huge factor in that. The guy had to eat a slice of humble pie last night but for him it went down like Buckleys cough medicine!

Luckily I didn't see blues man's post, I downloaded the game and just finished watching it. Was pleasantly surprised, it was a very good game! Much, much more open than I expected and it was very exciting. Probably the best game I've seen between top Premiership teams in a while. What was the whining about after the match? The penalty? I thought the ref was very strict to call it a penalty, I wouldn't have, but at the same time it was close enough that I don't think you can complain too much. I thought the game was called well actually.

good game for the neutral for sure, United attacked well in the 1st and chelsea did well in the 2nd. Referee decisions aside it was definitely not defensive, end to end stuff

The complaining was about the soft penalty and how David Luiz managed to stay on the pitch. :p

It was a good game, just ashame the ref had to spoil things with his outrageous decisions.

Look , I am not trying to start the whole Man Utd fans v The Rest argument up again , but every person what has complained about the refereeing decisions has been a Utd fan , so what if Luiz kicks Rooney now and again? At least he didn't elbow him eh?...........
What goes around comes around.
