Honestly take a break hon, you dont deserve to see man utd clown on your vacation. We will miss your updates, esp me bc i also wont be able to watch the match and your blog is amazing for updates, but you deserve better than them 💜💜 enjoy your time off! 💞🥰
Thank you so much! Sometimes I wonder if liveblogging the games is even worth it but then i’ll get a message like this and it makes me feel better. Quite honestly, my plan right now is to just sleep through the match but my body might wake me up since thats the time I normally get up when I am at home. My body will still be running on my timezone at that point in time so if I wake up, I will liveblog it.
United lost to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford for the first time in 30 years. This result also means that United have won only 3 out of their last 15 matches. Although United had the majority of the possession during the match, they failed to actually accomplish anything. Countless freekicks were wasted through out the match. For the third game in a row United were awarded a penalty and for the second time in a row United failed to convert it.
The refereeing was disastrous through out the match as several calls were made erroneously. One of the calls made was a booking for Dan James for simulation even though the replay clearly showed that McArthur had caught him, and he now runs the risk of getting a not at all deserved reputation as a diver. He would later on score United’s only goal of the match after a beautiful passing sequence and it seemed that they would escape with at least one point for this match. However, United’s defense disappearing and an uncharacteristic mistake for de Gea meant that Crystal Palace scored their second during stoppage time.
There are also injury concerns for United as Luke Shaw had to come off during the first half due to a thigh problem and Martial spent the final minutes of the match as a passenger.
Next up United travel to St. Mary’s stadium to take on Southampton and we can only hope that it goes better than these last two matches.
van Aanholt squeezes it past Dave. It was a rare goalkeeping error from United’s captain
Where was United’s defense? No one knows
There will be an additional 5 minutes at the end of the 90
Anthony Martial seems to barely be moving on the far side of the pitch. United have made all three changes so he cannot come off
United are right back in it thanks to a BEAUTIFUL goal from Dan James after a truly spectacular passing sequence from United
