In the first half hour, Manchester United have had something like 70% possession, and I think most of City's 30% has been taken up by their corner kicks. This is what happens when you don't play with two defensive midfielders, Roberto. Don't you see?!
James Milner runs up the length of the pitch and mounts Manchester City's first challenge on David de Gea's goal. The England man goes for the 20-year-old's far post from an acute angle only to see the ball bounce of Rio Ferdinand's boot and to safety. Phil Down gives a goal kick. He's probably as bored of the corner thing as I am.
Next, Mario Balotelli managed to foul himself while trying an intricate spin move against Nani. He lands, after Nani has played the ball, in between the winger's feet and falls over, clearly twisting something. He should be alright, but that was an immensely stupid idea - far worse than that backheel shot in a similarly pointless and stupid game against Los Angeles earlier this summer.
