And another thing...

CITY WERE FAR TOO SLICK

The build-up to the Manch­ester derby in the Premier League was one of the most te­dious I can re­mem­ber. Luck­ily the game was a thriller. City were quite bril­liant to watch and United were pre­dictably pon­der­ous and dull. In short, two teams cast in the mould of their man­agers Pep Guardi­ola and Jose Mour­inho (above).

IL­LOG­I­CAL AND IN­CON­SIS­TENT

I re­peat you can have all the di­rec­tives you want, but while our ref­er­ees make cow­ardly, ill-judged, il­log­i­cal and in­con­sis­tent de­ci­sions, they will all fail. The Premier League is blighted by poor of­fi­cials. Even the best, Mark Clat­ten­burg, was in­cred­i­bly le­nient to­wards non-stop foul­ing ma­chine Wayne Rooney last week­end.
