Is there a obvious difference in the ways of which radio soccer commentary and television set soccer commentary are portrayed with their viewers, if so, why? And how are they different? For this investigation I will be comparing basketball transcripts that I've written up from two different complements, one being Manchester United vs. Chelsea and Ajax vs. Real Madrid.
For my dialect investigation I am comparing how football and radio commentaries use lexical, syntactic and specialized features to commentate to the listener to encourage them to fully understand the match. I will be going through how the features react on the listeners of the air commentary and the viewers of the football match on television set. Sports commentary is a spontaneous form of writing which is made up at that moment as the match is live and no way acted out or staged. The main difference between both commentaries is that, for television audiences, they can easily see what is happening, as they get to see a clear picture from the television and also have audio to tell them key information like the actual players are doing in terms of activities performed or players brands, on the other side, radio commentary is very different, its more harder as they must provide everything necessary for the listener to get a full understanding of the way the match is commencing and what's happening signifying more information and talking is necessary. As there are different commentators such as Craig Burley, Paddy Crerand or Gary Lineker, each having their very own style to commentating.
During my research I gathered my dialect data that I will be using to back up my language research. I accumulated two sports commentaries that were entirely on websites that accumulate videos of sports matches. I find the first soccer commentary as Manchester United is my preferred team and Chelsea is known as to be my most hated team. And I opt for famous team for my radio commentary Real Madrid and a random team that could mix it up a little - Ajax. I transcribed approximately ten minutes of every match, both on Radio and Tv set, I wrote it on term and then made a desk for the coffee lover both. Each transcript had not been done from the beginning of the match; I managed to get so it is half way through, so that the commentators are into the game and much more likely to be speaking more.
I first of all made a table with the changing times the commentators paused throughout the transcript that I'd written for the precise timeframe throughout the match. From 20 minutes that I'd transcribed the sole reason that the amount of time the commentators took a pause is, one. They are different commentators with different varieties of speaking as well as the speed which they speak through the action as it is happening as its spontaneous.

Manchester United vs. Chelsea
From the desk above, you can view that there are less words being spoken in the true Madrid vs. Ajax television match, the difference between the Real Madrid and Manchester match is a staggering 23 seconds, an extremely surprising notice is that both Manchester and Madrid match were both commentated by the same commentators, famous, Andy Grey and Martin Tyler, there are extensive reason why there exists such a difference, many variables can come between each match, there is much more going on in the Manchester match then the Madrid match. The Manchester match presented sending off, credit cards had received to players and also most importantly, a goal had been scored in the same way I started out transcribing the match, which designed much more needed to be said and this supposed more pauses as the conversation is spontaneous. Alternatively, the Madrid match got some situations as well, such as incidents or fouls. Although every match is unique, it just shows how a lot of an impact it could be on the commentators and how they commentate on the match. It really is then clear to summarize that the Manchester match experienced an even more ordeal to comment on thus the reasons for the difference in pauses and expression count up from both suits. What goes on on the ordeals that happen on the pitch doesn't matter as the commentators job is to comment on everything that is going on for the listeners whether it's important or not, as the listeners have to know everything that is going on to make it more practical and to appear like they're there. Famous linguist David Crystal has shown that we now have two types of commentaries found, one that is play-by-play and the other that is known as colour-adding. After you hear coloring adding you think of something that is similar to a rest that is placed to make the match more appealing and exciting. Well shade adding commentary means to add pre-event background, pre-evaluation and within-event interpretation, whereas Play-by-play commentary, when thought of enables you to think of on the spot commentary where everything is quickly regarded as it happens, which is what it is, it's a method of commentating where someone describes happenings as they happen.
My second process was to carry out a word depend on each transcript which i had written up, I used Microsoft Term, as it acquired features that show just how many words are in the document, and this helps it be much better to find the full total word count somewhat than needing to count each expression, which is time consuming.

I was no amazed at the results on the table, side-by-side compared, there is a fill of difference between the radio and television commentary. I expected that the radio commentary could have much more words then your television commentary, as there are more words would have to be spoken such as in the explanation as radio listeners have no visual display of the match to make reference to or make their own judgements from, meaning they need to take each expression from the commentator and use it to make a graphic of their own of how the match has been unfolded. There must be more words spoken on the radio, as if there are pauses or inactive zones in the commentary then the listener will have nothing at all to go on, as the idea of listening to the air commentary is to hear the commentators unfold the match you, if there are pauses or no one talks, the its silent, and what's the point of hearing the radio for silent noise? To summarize, silence is a curse on the air, in the meantime in the tv commentary, even if the commentator should go silent for another or two, you may still find visual supports to go off from, you can still start to see the players and the match, and you can make your own commentary up for what's happening, this may also be urged by the viewers as they can notify the match in their own speech as this can be exiting at times, but whereas the air listeners, they can not do this as they count on the commentators for your match.
By taking the theorist of David Crystal, by adding two more columns to the table, and naming the two columns with the ideas, I have been through the transcripts once more and examined for colour-adding and play-by-play.

When you go through the coloring adding and play-by-play ideas at the job, there are variations that are clear, in television commentary, two-fourths of the commentary is using colour adding, whereas on-the-other-hand, if you take the radio commentary, Manchester United, their word matter was 731, the amount of coloring adding was 34, whereas with the air commentary if you take, for instance, Real Madrid vs. Ajax, their phrase count was 927, but their shade adding tally was only 150, which makes it insignificant in the commentators commentary. You can find possible reasons for this type of thing to happen, on radio, when commentating on sports, their target is to see listeners just what is happening and because its spontaneous plus they have to include more description then there would be on tv commentaries, there is no time for colour-adding, on the other hand on television it isn't standard for commentators in order to viewers just what is going on as the viewer can see what's occurring and normally constitute their own commentary. Coloring adding and play-by-play have nothing in connection with each other, because the commentator includes plenty of colour adding, it doesn't mean they will includes a great deal of play-by-play as well, with play-by-play, the commentator can become more specific on what they commentate on, as not everything is needed to be commentated to the viewers as they can easily see it for themselves. There are more pauses as you don't have to commentate on everything, the commentator could become more organized and use enough time not put in commentating on everything that is happening with the addition of more colour-adding to the commentary to help make the commentary more enjoyable and interesting. In the commentary of Manchester United v Chelsea '-Both M and A speaking-: Look at Sir Alex's dress sense, it's appalling, what kind of role model is he? He's using a polo throat. He's indefinitely mailing the wrong note to the youngsters of today. ', the actual commentators said has nothing to do with the match, they go off matter and stop commentating as the viewers can see what is happening, nor need their help.
There is a list of collocations which imply that two or more words are put together to give a complex term for something occurring, there are sports examples that can be used such as 'penalty-box', 'free-kick' or 'penalty-kick'. These examples are words that are used frequently used in soccer commentary and football all together, both words of the collocation, when break up aside, have different meanings, but jointly they have a different interpretation with their own independent meanings. When put together they have got conjoined into a football lexical meaning designed for sports. These aren't the only real collocations used in football; in addition they refer to football clubs that are context-bound, such as 'Liverpool', 'Chelsea', or 'Newcastle'. Without knowing the actual context is good for the words, they could be used for a a lot of things, the same thing could go for players or commentators as well, such as 'Robin' without context it doesn't imply its Robin van Persie from Manchester United.

On another notice, one noticeable top features of sports activities overall's commentary is its specific vocabulary. There are several well-known football lexical words, however they are not typical associated to it, they have got just been used a whole lot in the football world they have grown to become part of it, this is a difficult problem encountered by people who research the semantics of words, grouping words under a category. On the other hand, the words shown have meaning that relate with what they mean in football, including the word 'clear', it means an object that is transparent and can be seen through, however in the semantic field of sports, this means to clear the ball away from the persons goal to the other team.
The register commonly used by many commentators uses specific words to do with what they are discussing when reporting the soccer commentary, they still discuss so a extensive audience can still understand what they say, they don't use complex words that only hard central supporters or people that contain done comprehensive research in to the sport can understand, they use words that are every day and that individuals can easily grab if indeed they continue being attentive and gradually grasp, this is excatly why most of the world play and watch football, as it's easy to get the hands of and is straightforward to comprehend all the lexical words regarding the activity. Tenor points out in the register theory that there are two types of terms, casual and formal, informal is when there exists swearing, interruptions, overlaps, first titles used, nicknames or diminutives, and in formal is when you can find full varieties, no slang, no first titles, turn-taking. In football commentary they largely use formal terms, commentators don't use slang or abbreviated varieties, and alternatively they use natural lexis and turn-taking.
Metaphors are trusted in commentary, especially radio commentary to include a more brilliant image of the match as radio uses cannot start to see the match for themselves or have any visual aids. That is especially important as though the commentators cannot make a live and vivid broadcast of the match for the listeners then the radio listeners will lose interest and it will be a whole lot of boring factual information without the enjoyment or thrills. However metaphors used whilst listening and browsing can be used with moderation, as overuse can get rid of the enjoyment that may be acquired with it, making it a uninteresting and monotonous commentary with over-usage of rhyming, metaphors and clichs.
This is nothing new, things like this can be found in papers, newspaper publishers or speeches made by several people. There is something special about sports commentary, in everyday conversations you will see a large consumption of stuttering, hesitations, fillers, incorrect starts and wrong grammar utilization such as starting a word with the term 'but', which is inappropriate, yet athletics commentators are very experienced and don't make the faults that average people do when speaking, this gives the impression that sports commentators experienced much time practising with spontaneous conversation and needing to make up phrases that are rich in explanation and are enjoying for a long period.
The fluid point out of the conversation by both commentators through the match is continuative and interesting, seldom do commentators screw up and disrupt the fluency, the fluency is supported by an extremely represented demonstration and design of commentating which is made by practice where the commentators have grown and adopted by seeing other commentators and picking right up on the positives and revise on the negatives.
Commentators use non-fixed constructions in their commentating, they don't embark on a script as the basketball match is spontaneous and unrevised, there is absolutely no script that can be used, so which means there's a beneficial decrease in things to keep in mind for the commentators, making learning and revising topics or lines such as actors do aren't needed for commentators. As commentators need to remember all 11 starting players with 5 substitutes and also use their titles whilst making spontaneous commentary can be an overload for the commentators so not remembering speeches is an advantage for them, but it addittionally increases the fluency of which the commentators much keep at.
Bryant, Dark brown, Comisky, & Zillmann (1982) reviewed how commentary can affect the judgement of audiences, they figured commentary impacts the viewer's belief, they known as it as 'Commentary Effects -3', In addition they found commentary to result the viewer's belief on feels, this is seen in sports commentary too, as when commentators shout 'GOAL!', commentary audiences jump for delight and their feelings change, depending on the actual commentators are commenting on such as injuries or goal's for opposition clubs, viewers thoughts change to match the commentary.
With radio commentary, there are many things that the commentators have to remind the viewers of, including the current amount of time in the match, such as 'half time is almost nearing' or 'it's getting close to the final whistle'. Once in awhile this happens, these details is shortly commented on by the commentators or their hosts who've joined them to give their take on the match so far and possible lines ups to the forthcoming events that are going to be unfolded. This however also happens on tv set commentary, but as television set viewers have all the information they have to go on, they don't really need it that much, only if there's a half time approaching or the overall game is going to have minutes added on such as '2 minutes will be included into the match', this happens largely because the visitors are in to the match and aren't taking a look at non-important information such as current time in to the match.
Play-by-play commentary is when the commentator identifies everything important that is happening in the match, such as actions performed by the players such as foul techniques or great skills performed to goals and other important actions that are essential to listeners to obtain a grasp of the proceedings. When commentators are commenting on the action, they use present tense to help make the action more exciting looked after adds theatre to the commentary, as its happening these days, also commentators speak in present tense rendering it appear that the listeners are in the same time as them and are enjoying it live rather than being commentated exactly what is happening, meaning it'd be previous tense, which makes it uninteresting and non-dramatic.
Radio and Tv set commentary both have the linguistic features available by commentators to mention the action supplied on the pitch to the audiences and listeners at home without them being there, commentators add fluency and description to each commentary to be sure that audiences don't miss out on any action, with both commentators for tv and radio using the same lexical and words features, there are still much difference between them, on the other side there are also a lot of similarities such as the same common register can be used, colour adding is utilized by both radio and television set commentary to add life in to the commentary whilst there is certainly nothing interesting going on, but when the match changes exciting and packed packed with commentary that is beneficial to the listener/viewer everyday commentary starts off again, with plenty of description.
Game: Ajax vs. Real Madrid
Date: Wed 3rd October 2012
Broadcasted on: Radio 5 Live
Commentators: Mike Ingham (A), Terry Butcher (B), Alan Green (G)
Time: 21:00 to 26:30 (rounded)
A: very enjoyable match, two one, this is five live, two players looking to keep possession over the ball as the other attempts their best to take it, one of these is Kaka, the other Ryan, whom has scored 3 goals for Ajax for the 2012-2013 fittings. Er Ryan appears like he er means business. Real Madrid building a wall structure on the edge of the pitch, great products. Alvaro coming up on the right side part, very slyly, hoping all tactics to understand this ball, and here comes Daley!!, ooh! Right footed, back again to Thulani, volley! Excellent volley by Thulani. Might possibly be considered a play on, the balls down the side. This is a great set up by Religious, Christian's ball is manipulated brilliantly by Gonzalo, darn, problems made, and there it dates back to Theo, Ajax. Again, Essien goes into!, combination by Essien, looking positive. Wiel minds it away, not too much. In will go Rhijn, Tobias looking like he's enthusiastic for the ball. Offense by real Madrid is dream like! Raphael needs the ball out of Ajax's position. Sami requires the ball that Raphael delivers him. Balls vanished stroppy, but nonetheless, there is certainly control, not too much though as it's a throw-in for Ajax.
A: Well play to Ajax, they really do know ways to get the ball down the pitch easily and methods, let's pray this match is a good one for the coffee lover. They have got Thulani who comes off very eager and possessive. They've got an opportunity at goal! Well defended by Real Madrids defenders, Xabi and Luka.
B: Mesur with a goal after ten minutes, Real Madrid haven't advanced higher at the moment, nevertheless, you never know what will happen. Haven't acquired any phrase from Cristiano Ronaldo yet, but let's see what goes on with him down the road. Mesut had an incident, being fouled, but the ref doesn't take any nonsense and one again performs a good greeting card and Kaka is much more happy in attacking midfield. Kaka will take the ball, crosses it to Cristiano Ronaldo. Ajax swoops in and needs it, big clearance, mailing the ball traveling from Ricardo Van Rhijn. Free kick to Ajax, taking it is Viktor. It's approaching up-to 12 minutes, the free kick is taken, goes kilometers, it moves long to Kolbeinn, ohh inadequate. It will go offside. And it's a free kick to Real Madrid, making the match look a little too easy.
B: Good play from Ajax, on the other hand Real Madrid is making a mince pie from it. This is er exciting I suppose. Ajax has already established many chances at the web, throw in's near to the penalty field, two plus chances at goal er its not been a fairly easy drive as it in the seventh to tenth minutes for Real Madrid. Er Real Madrid has ceased playing tactically, and also have gone to defence function in trying to avoid the Ajax from conceding an objective. -sigh noises- Ajax has just given the ball away needlessly and er have to work very difficult to get past the defence create by Real Madrid. In my own judgment Ajax need to work on their tactics, if they want to keep the ball and also have the opportunity at scoring they need to go down the left palm side, Mitchell appears like he is aware of what he is er doing.
G: That is a great match, filled full of action and dilemma. Joel was not seen too much in the action so far keeping in his position and not trying anything risky, -shock noise- Lesley applies to Jose's legs, refs seen it, but Ajax experienced possession therefore the match is sustained. Tobias moves to Niklas, Niklas moves, oh what's this, he's checking his boot something appears to be a be anxious to him. Fabian videos it off his shoe to Miralem who has been very useful to Ajax so far. Extracted from the right palm side onward from Miralem, he proceeds up to the touchline. Large to Fischer as there is certainly pressure coming from the opposition in getting the ball out of the part of the pitch, look out gents. This is heading to get tasty. Essien snags the ball and boots it from the pitch. Throw directly into Ajex. Ajex make the most out of it, but no good fortune. Marcelo heads back and helps, Marcelo clears it, and may I say he has tried to make his outfit work with his style, boots corresponding his hair, just what a great couple. Real Madrid two, Ajax nil. You're hearing Real Madrid vs. Ajax on BBC Five Live.
G: You're back again with BBC Five Live. Cristiano participating in at a good four if I may say. Things are looking convenient for Real Madrid as their possession and passing have advanced dramatically, this can easily take a turn for the worse, If Ajax improves their game and gets more possession and advances, and they have an opportunity. Daley and Thulani stay back again securing the bottom 1 / 2 of their part, as Miralem and Viktor progress forwards up the pitch in needless try of possessing the ball. Ajax is upgrading. They are playing more tactically, Real Madrid tend to be advance externally of the pitch, defensively and offensively, but Ajax have eliminated for another approach, heading right through the center, this is marvellous, constantly making needless levels of Real Madrid's players mind inwards at a fail try to reach the ball, but its worthless, Ajax are going for goal!
B: what's this? Ajax has called for subs.

M: Attempted obstructed. Kaka kept footed shot from the left hand area of the box is quickly clogged which is aided by Xabi.
A: Kaka doesn't normally get clogged, but it was a good try, ideally he'll have better luck next time.
A: preferably Ajax concede a goal soon, this is looking like a tough match to them.
M: in my view I wasn't er sure what he was er doing their, didn't seem like he was making a lot of an effort, other fits he's tried the same thing, he's has success there. Maybe the goal difference is getting to his mind, and he's trying to be cocky or something. Touch from the 27 year old Cristiano Ronaldo, control it up the pitch towards Gonzalo who's ready. It was a good intend to steer it up towards the centre frontward with Alvaro next to him and Jose on his right. Iker keeping his wits up as this can get interesting for him, as the centre frontward proceeds up. The delivery from Gonzalo to Maria is formed up to be good, on the right he crosses it to Cristiano Ronaldo but misses, throw-In given to Ajax.
M: Cristiano Ronaldo, just what a great player, one of the best for me, and many of the supports consent.
A: Jody needs the throw-in, AH! He's given it back to Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo! It's all up to him, the keeper is the only one keeping him from conceding an objective!, however the goalies done well to keep it from the net, nice eye on your golf ball there.
A: what a thrilling little bit of match that was. Ajax 've got the ball, Ryan to Joel, Joel works with it, nicely dealing with Angel on the right. Good pressuring from Luka offering it his everything, its looking good, Joel looks like he has learned what he's doing. Kaka approaching behind him, wanting to work his magic for the ball, but could it be good enough!? Keeping to the right, aiming to cross it, there is not enough room and Real Madrid needs it swiftly. Real Madrid have enjoyed magnificently, it appears like Real Madrid might just take this home.
M: I concur, Madrid have just been too proficient at keep possession and their techniques can't be out matched up today by Ajax.
A: When's the pull happening? Friday?
M: Yeah, Fri.
M: Alvaro, will keep heading up, right hands side, he looks confident, Daley is holding out, watching his moves, Daley needs it, there is no getting previous him, the defence on this man. It's fantastic!, -sighs- half way down the pitch, it will go off
A: Throw set for Real Madrid.

A: As Ashley brings the ball up, Bebe is on the arena to bring it back again to Chelsea's fifty percent of the pitch. Florent down the left, looks like Buttner isn't even attempting here, where's his mind at today? Mr Veysey joins us here; he's already here for a very long 'noon. He's recently been accused of the criticism why penalty allegations were hushed away by our Howard Webb. For extra procedures, he's also got a shouting from Roberto Di Matteo.
Mr Veysey joins us here, he's already here for an extremely long 'noon. He's recently been accused of the criticism why penalty aligations were hushed away by our Howard Webb. For extra methods, he's also acquired a shouting from Roberto Di Matteo.
A: Chelsea are needs to get more in to the game as time ticks on, getting on your golf ball more and more and making those critical decisions up there in the pitch. Manchester's set for a good deal with here tonight.
A: Lampard and Oscar 're going for goal, this could be it, down the middle, they're going in strong, nobody is going to stop them, gigs looks like he'll make an effort at it, but. . no, they complete, Oscar takes the shot, ohh. . just goes a little huge.
B: yeah that's right, they're playing very good, good inter-passing er between Lampard and Oscar, he got the ball as expected, but on the other hand, I'd have expected Eden to be taking the shot, he was meticulously trailing and he had a massive amount of pitch before him to make a better shot and smacking it set for goal.
B: Quick stats strike and Chelsea can boast about the 66% of possessions within the last a quarter-hour, impressive. Just shows they're really seeking to play tactically in the match, making a much more impact since opposed to the opening moments.
A: Great, GREAT previous problem from Ivanovic as he goes for the slip in make an effort to take the ball off Welbeck only six yards from the target.
B: Manchester haven't given many away and er I believe it's important for these people, as they are extremely experiences, keeping their cool at this moment with time, there only been several cock ups, where players have lost their border and need it back to keep on with the match in hopes of receiving here.
A: Yellow greeting card for Fernando Torres. That's the first scheduling of the overall game, and its own Chelsea's frontman. Unlucky blunder of charging after the ball, but unluckily charging into Evans back instead. Not necessarily this fault, but the striker can't get away with it, or the ref will look like he's going soft in it.
Evra is down now, after that fiasco straight to the face. Oh that must've hurt. He's made of stronger products then that, and he's support running like it didn't even happen.
B: It's a casino game of brawn, but with these nagging free-kicks which can be interrupting the move of the game. ten minutes till half time, will either area be able to get past the tie up breaker and concede the target that is victorious them the match?
A: it's an own goal by Jonny Evans! GOAL! GOAL! Three nil to Chelsea. Manchester concede a free-kick out large on the right. United are going downhill.
A: Chelsea finally got past united limited defence, and it paid.
B: United try and get back, Unit go close immediately taking no long turns. Young's fierce drive from 18 yards is halted it its songs by Cech, but the continue by the results from Cech almost provides ball to the waiting around Rooney who's eager to pelt it in. Rooney goes for it.
B: Another save by the impressive Cech, as Rooney and Welbeck incorporate for the stinging work. It's a part. The corner will come in, but Cech is having none of computer, he will keep Chelsea victors.
A: Time upon time Young sends the crosses which, if effectively manoeuvred can get them the target they oh so frantically need. But Chelsea don't seem to be to be giving them the chance, the defence is too small.
A: er Man U goes into for the shot but again the Chelsea squad's defence can deal with anything tonight. It deflects, Rooney goes into for the kill, but gets rejected as Cech slams the ball away for another corner. Young can take it. But before Man U can do anything, the ref. blows the whistle for halftime.

Time: 15:04 to 23:08
Final score by the end of the match: Manchester United 3 - 3 Chelsea
M: Valencia reduces inside previous Bosingwa like he wasn't even seeking, but his control was too much and loses it. Luiz can clear it, trust he does indeed, ah, but instead dribbles it and quickly loses it in the process. Oh Man U are hopeless at actually endeavoring to score today.
Mereles requires the free-kick for Chelsea and makes a proper go from it, well will try to, it's an cross-cum-shot-cum-no. it's a rubbish delivery, easily knocked away by Evans.
A: Torres. Torres gets the ball, he appears self-confident, the ball looks likes its lined up with him, he prods frontward and needs the golf swing, but it goes terribly extensive.
A: Chelsea's try now, each goes for the left. Bosingwa to Malouda, and Essien getting the work done to getting free for another amazing pass which goes directly move Man U's midfielders. Bosingwa needs it to the package, but gets killed off by Valencia, and fouls the winger as he attempts to recover and receive the ball.
M: Both clubs are giving the ball away with out a fight, for me, Man U are offering the ball away, they're trying these long goes by towards the beginning Rooney, but it's not quite there yet, it's too much for him to handle and he easily loses it. What I'd do is supply the ball an opportunity, keep it for a bit and take It up, then give brief and accurate passes afterwards, Chelsea really know what to do, Chelsea dribble it out of the danger area one again which time Carrick is on intercept mode.
-Both M and A communicating-: Take a look at Sir Alex's dress sense, its appalling, the type of role model is he? He's wearing a polo throat. He's indefinitely mailing the wrong meaning to the kids of today.
M: Jones has gone for the task, The Spaniard bumps into him a lttle bit as he fights past him for the ball ahead, but Jones is abruptly discontinued in his record, that's it, he's booked. And harshly easily may add.
M: United are onto it. United are beginning to pressure Chelsea, United are doing a stop-start minute which isn't good for them, and neither us, it isn't very interesting.
-Both M and A-: GOAL! GOAL!.
M: Fantastic work from Evans, who makes the most from the ball, with the tight stop in the pack, amazing play after Chelsea haven't been making the most out of time and also have just been lightly applying pressure towards opposition. The England striker has quick foot, using his superb quickness, he gets past his man at speeds undefinable, places it across the six yards, De Gea enter place, lightly touches it, and it goes into.
A: another good save by Cech, Welbecks taken turned back of for a place, it was disappointing. Valencia takes on it towards Rafael's in the field; he flicks it towards the goal, but abruptly discontinued by the goalie. It's United's time and energy to shine, they're presenting everything they received, pelt after pelt of difficult balls into the container, Chelsea are standing high and happy and not letting them through. Luiz can take the ball out of these area and mind towards Man U's 50 percent.
M: Ivanovic's been whistled by the ref. appears to be he proceeded to go for a slip tackle on Evra. Doesn't look too bad, but long lasting ref. says will go Perhaps. United take the free-kick, they're nowhere next to Chelsea's goal, but they'll have to help make the most out of it. Valencia will try to send it direct through to Carrick, but gets discontinued by Cahill and its own offside.
