Manchester United's capacity for drama is certainly not on the wane. There are times when I wonder if I follow football or merely suffer from it. This still wasn't vintage stuff from United but five goals against a resurgent Spurs is very respectable. One question that is left in hanging in air though. What on earth has happened to Howard Webb?
Not so long ago this guy was widely respected as the English game's best referee. Mourinho would pillory for him in the big fixtures and that shiny pate had us all thinking he was our very own Pierluigi Collina. Not today. I try very hard not to criticise other people, and I think referees have an exceptionally difficult job, but that was as close to a penalty as Japan is to the Caribbean. Not very.
Nonetheless, we had our scoring boots on from that point and the more I look at the goal difference column the more I think it could turn out to be crucial. We need ten points to secure this title and I highly doubt that Middlesbrough or Manchester City will be rooting for us to claim it.
There is still a lot of work to be done. The team has looked a little tired of late but we have been able to lean on different areas of the side at different times. For so long the defence held us together but now it is the attack. If we believe the papers, then next season our attack will also include some young scamp named Kaka. Where on earth would we play him? In goal?
The next three weeks see us playing two games a week again. It seems as though we have been doing that all season. We are not there yet but I hope we can hold on. Should the drama levels stay this high then by the end of May I could be sporting the same hairstyle as Mr. Webb.
