    It was crazy watching the last 10 minutes.

  3. Noah says:

    The most exciting game I have ever watched! CITY!

  4. Alex Wolcott says:

    And that’s an Arsenal guy freaking out. Hell, I’d freak out if this happened for any other team than United. Probably would even freak out there. Would be upset but still amazed at what happened. That’s just history right there. Kind of transcends supportership.

    If you look at the comments on the MEN site even the United fans are pretty congratulatory.

    That’s just a great moment for football, I think, and shows what a fantastic game it is. I wonder how many football/EPL fans were created amongst people just casually watching this around the world? And hopefully those chaps will be pointed in the correct direction in terms of supportership. ;)

    CTID, CTID, I know I am I’m sure I am I’m CTID!

    I’ve watched this clip and the goal by Aguero from the Spanish over and over.

    And the Man S*****y **** riding begins…

    City were fortunate that for the third goal the ball happened to drop to just the right person – Aguero. He had that striker’s instinct to have one touch past the defender then shoot. I think if the ball had landed in front of a City defender he may have taken a wild swing and Utd would be Champions.

    Additionally, that moment was the only time in the game QPR slacked off with packing their box. A couple of players were left upfield and didn’t attempt to get back. I’m wondering if they knew they were safe at that moment?

    Anyway it’s good to have a new face at the top. Watching Mancini during the second half as he stormed around throwing his arms in the air like Mussolini was hilarious.

    Everybody goin Andy Gray-crazy after that day. Relegation battle was so predictable. Well except for a writer here that said Villa was gonna get relegated!! :D
