Heroic Apache rescues point for Red Devils

I was watching Portsmouth-Chelsea on FOX Sports Latin America (odd choice of live coverage when they had Spurs-Man. Utd. at the same time).

They had Pompey-Blues live, followed by Tottenham-Manchester United (taped), while they could have had the match at White Hart Lane LIVE, followed by Liverpool-Sunderland LIVE. Anyway...

The thing is...the public in Argentina missed one more Carlitos TEVEZ's heroics!

I was following the entire Premiership action (paying special attention to my team -QPR- in the Championship -we won 3-0 against high-flying Bristol City, by the way-) and when all the matches were about to finish, I said: "OK, I'll give it a try and I'll watch the final minutes on SopCast".

As the software was loading I said to myself: "I doubt I'll tune in on time, it's surely over".

But the ref gave 3 added minutes and United won a corner kick on the right and Carlitos decided to write another page in his book of heroics.

He went to the first post and got there before everybody else to simply touch it and send it to the back of the net to equalize a match that looked pretty much in the bag for unlucky Spurs.

Considering Arsenal had defeated Manchester City earlier and knowing this TEVEZ goal now keeps them 2 points away from the much will this goal be worth by the end of the season?

Pancho VILLA, the rebel County needed

He doesn't have the large mustache and he surely doesn't fire revolvers or wear big sombreros, like the legendary Mexican Pancho VILLA, but Emanuel, born in Argentina and a former player of Huracán and Rosario Central, arrived to Derby County from Mexico and today he fired home to give them a point away at St. Andrew's against Birmingham.

County are favourites to be relegated as the have gathered only 9 points in the entire campaign, but it's a good thing for VILLA to score and hopefully start making a name for himself.

Mauro ZARATE also played in that match, but he only came in as a sub with roughly 15 minutes to go. He is surely pushing to get his first start with the Blues. We'll see how it goes.

Hey Seba-I had the same thoughts about the television situation. Strange, as ManU usually tends to get priority. I watched the entire match and Tevez definitely saved ManU from a loss they deserved. The Spurs played much better throughout, though Evra deserved a penalty call that didn't go his way. What's the consequence for Carlitos taking his jersey off and waving it after the goal ? He might get praise and an earfull from Mean Alex.
