The Bootroom: Man U v. Everton

Can our man stop United?


A wobbly Man U and a determined Everton will meet on the patchy grass that is Wemberley today. The match is on FSC, so have at it in the comments.

I'm predicting a 1-0 result for United thanks to a questionable Mike Riley decision.

Shockingly young lineup for Man U today. God forbid that will mean they're destined to lose.

Spectator said...

Hmmmm... so no one cares about Man U and Everton? Can't say I disagree.

My SopCast program is apparently crapped out... and of course, the download page won't load so I can reinstall.

*sigh* And I can't say I'm rooting for Everton... I prefer to think of it as rooting against United.

Spectator said...

I'm half paying attention.... Can't say that with the lineup SAF put out that Everton doesn't have a shot. Only thing I'm really enjoying is Rafael and Fabio on the pitch at the same time.

No spice to this game whatsoever

I'd rather be watching basketball

Bo-ring.... I'm going to clean my apartment.

Spectator said...

Hahaha well done Moyes getting into Mike Riley's head. That was a pretty clear penalty on Welbeck.

Spectator said...

Eh, I take it back... slo-mo replay shows that Welbeck made a meal of it. 50-50 penalty, so well done Mike Riley!

Spectator said...

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SOMEBODY PUT THIS GAME OUT OF ITS MISERY!!

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Spectator said...

Mike Riley doing his best to make up for the no-penno call with three terrible calls against Everton (two clear corners not given, one nothing foul against Cahill as he was clear on to goal).

And I can't believe I'm still watching this.

Nothing says "breathing life into the match" like bringing on a sulky, overpaid Boobatov

Sam Allardyce thinks this was a cracking match.

The Fan's Attic said...

two shockingly poor PKs from ManU and Everton.

Spectator said...

Dear lord Tim Cahill and Berba take horrible PKs.... This game will never see a goal!!!

EbullientFatalist said...

Tim Cahill just did his best to make sure this game never ends.

Spectator said...

Finally! Baines of all people.

Spectator said...

Tim Howard! USA USA USA!!

The Fan's Attic said...

Howard with two saves. NICE.

USA! USA! USA!

EbullientFatalist said...

Please, Everton, for chrissakes, win this so I don't have to hear about ManU-Chelsea for the next month.

phil said...

HOWARD!!!! Vanquishing the evildoers!

EbullientFatalist said...

I don't want to be left out: USA!USA!USA!

phil said...

Neville!!!!

Spectator said...

Well done Everton!!!

The Fan's Attic said...

JAGOFF! JAGOFF! JAGOFF!

EbullientFatalist said...

Good on you, Toffees. Now there is no chance of a ManU treble, and I personally implore Arsenal to make sure there won't be a ManU double.

The NY Kid said...

this was pretty much the perfect result:

1. ManUre forced to play 120 minutes
2. Tim Cahill misses his PK in an egregious manner
3. ManUre lose

phil said...

YES! No more quintuple talk!

The Fan's Attic said...

haha.

Fox En Espanol has the FA Cup Final as Arsenal v. Everton.

phil said...

Too true, TNK.

Not a person on the pitch played with any fervor today. Everton deserved to advance even less than the incredibly young ManU. It was boys against men and the boys should have won it.

thank you Tim Howard from saving this weekend from being an utterly depressing whirlpool of horrible, crappy losses. The pens were wonderful, at least until I found out one of the Englanders I was with was a Forest fan who was happy about this morning's result... :(

And fuck you Lorient for trying to make it worse again (what, you can't fucking defend a lead at home??). Girondins better fuckin stomp OL this afternoon...

Hmm, what's that you say? I need a life??

jjf3 said...

Fuck. And. Yes. Diarra! (not the Lassana one, or the other one, or that 3rd one...)

DOWN GOES LYON!! DOWN GOES LYON!!
