It started with a couple of celebs in Tom Cruise and Robert Duvall and ended with a pulsating 3-2 win for Manchester United with a little bit of controversy thrown in.
Rio Ferdinand was struck in the eye by a coin but was focusing on the result as United went six points clear at the top of the Premier League as Wayne Rooney (2) and RVP’s 90th minute free-kick ended City’s unbeaten 37 game Premier League home record.
what a result,3points! Sweet! Whoever threw that coin,what a shot! Can’t believe it was a copper 2p….could have at least been a £1 coin!

Well-known hardman Gary Lineker is spot on. Rare.
I think Nasri is the 1st professional footballer I've seen be so obviously afraid of being hit by a ball.
