Well don't blame me if nothing happens for 30 mins then I get bored and do something else then when I can be bothered to watch it again it's 20 mins to go and Rooney runs into a few defenders, fluffs a few chances quite embarrisingly and then gets a standing ovation when he's taken off. If you go on what I saw you'd really start to wonder if someone spiked your beer...Originally posted by Neil Pickup
Nothing at all about football, make that.
He was consistently creating something out of nothing. The way he was playing, particularly at the end of the first half when no-one else was showing, was magic.
The ball that fed Owen 1-on-1 was excellent, and the way he ran at defenders and beat them was superb. Add to that the 40 yard through ball straight into Gerrard's stride (leading to another Owen miss) after the sublime close control, and the vision that preceded the backheel that nearly found Beckham.
