When Manchester United trudged dejectedly off the pitch 2-0 down to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford at half time, even the most diehard United supporter must have thought that the club's season had imploded.
United's defence, seemingly impregnable a month ago looked about as watertight as a sieve, with Evra looking shaky and VanDerSaar in goal flapping around like a wounded seal. Things looked bad for United...
"Not so," said United fan Gary Obbshite of Streatham. "I knew we'd turn it around in the second half. It turned out to be an easy victory in the end. And anyone whoever doubted it isn't fit to be called a United fan."
"You talk out of your arse mate," an irate United fan riposted. "It's arrogant pricks like you that give the rest of us a bad name! We've looked as shaky as a wino in the morning recently, and you know it!"
A scuffle ensued.
United did indeed run out comfortable winners in the end by a 5-2 margin but any United fan who hasn't had doubts over the last couple of weeks is either a liar, or a moron. Or both.
More when we come out of the toilet.
