Stoke – 1 Manchester United – 1

It is never easy playing against stoke. Never. I seem to remember a time when Liverpool lost to Stoke by 6 goals to 1. With ex-Manchester United Player Mark Hughes in charge, it is almost as though he has got something to prove. Plus, the stoke team are made up of all ex-Liverpool players like Charlie Adam, Peter Crouch and Glen Johnson for example. They have a point to prove as well by the look of things

In any case, Stoke scored first. It was in the 19th minute. A long kick was flicked on by Peter Crouch and Stoke attacked down the left, with Arnautovic’s lay-off finding Erik Pieters to hit a fizzing cross that deflected off Mata and past David de Gea. An own-gial was a real shame and it really pissed me off. Still, that fighter inside me said that the one-nil down will inspire us to fight.

And fight we did. We had quite a few opportunities but we stuffed them up. We had ourselves to blame for that. But their keeper was something else. Damn that fella was good!

It was in extra time. I was looking at my watch anxiously. 93rd minute of play. Then came a spot kick. The announcer said that this would make or break Manchester United. Rooney took up the position to take the kick and a beautiful curler ballooned the net! Yeeha! We had equalised and that also meant that Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of 249 goals had been beaten by Wayne Rooney! A record broken in the nick of time!
