Me: You know Mike Dean loves that spray.
Brother: The line he sprays is really small.
Me: But he sprays it WITH AUTHORITY. It looked like the can was running out of spray. Probably he was playing with it before the match.
Brother: City clearly don’t know about Mike Dean time. This sort of physical play is not a good idea after the 30th minute.
Me: Especially after he’s already given them a card. That WAS the warning, guys. Now he’s for real. I just want Costa NOT to get a card.
Brother: There’s no chance. Costa loves this game more than anyone so far.
Brother: UH OH. IT’S MIKE DEAN. HE JUST SMILED AND POINTED TO HIS HEAD. RIGHT ON SCHEDULE.
Pablo Zabaleta is booked, 32nd minute:
Me: BAH HA HA HA, Zabaleta.
Brother: HAHAHA. I TOLD YOU CITY. IT’S MIKE DEAN TIME. NO ONE INTERRUPTS MIKE DEAN TIME.
Nemanja Matic is booked, 39th minute:
Me: Ugh, that Mike Dean face when he booked Matic.
Brother: That was just dumb from Matic. Come on. IT’S MIKE DEAN TIME.
Yaya Touré is booked, 43rd minute:
Brother: ‘WHAT CAN I DO? IT’S MIKE DEAN TIME. YOU HAVE TO GET A CARD. I’M SORRY. I’M MIKE DEAN. AND IT’S MIKE DEAN TIME.’
Me: Commentator: I’m just glad the referee is using common sense. We’re watching the same game, right?
1 card before Mike Dean time.
5 cards after.
Sounds like common sense from Mike Dean.
Zabaleta is sent off and Costa is booked, 66th minute:
Me: HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
Brother: HAHAHAHA MIKE DEAN TIME.
