Manchester United 4-3 Manchester City (Old Trafford)
Didn’t blog about United’s 2-1 win over Arsenal or their 3-1 triumph over Tottenham Hotspurs, but I’ve been forced out of hibernation by the sheer class of this game. Easily the best game I’ve seen for a long time, with terrific passing, great attacking play from both teams and snatches of individual brilliance.
I have a million things to say about this game, but some other time. Suffice to say that I never in my wildest dreams imagined Michael Owen would play any part in a Manchester derby, let alone win one–courtesy of his last-gasp shot six minutes into extra time. The guy’s a genius!
