Manchester City get us going in the second half and almost immediately attempt a silly long pass forward that Manchester United mop up and shuttle to Michael Carrick. The immediately attempts a silly long pass forward that goes out for a goal kick, and then Joe Hart's punt downfield is retrieved by the United defence. It's a bit like a pinball match here.
City manage to put a few (short) passes together and look at least vaguely dangerous for a while, but a clean(!) sliding challenge by Paul Scholes cuts out the opportunity, and then United are free to give the ball back to City with a long pass. At some point those punts are either going to actually work or no longer attempted, right? Please? City might be a boring team but they appear to have picked up the memo much faster than United have in this half, and consequently are looking more dangerous.
