Stoke City 3 - Man Utd 1

Your Task:- In the back of your books write a short report from the point of view of the team that you have been given. For example, a Stoke supporter may say the following:-

We deserved the win. We could have won the game by more if we had put our chances away.

A Man Utd supporter may say:-

We were unlucky really. Stoke’s goals were lucky. If Delap had not been on, they would not have scored any.

  • What can we be certain actually happened?
  • In the different statements what are facts and what are opinions?
  • What are the differences between the interpretations?
  • How can the differences in the interpretations be explained?
  • Which interpretation do you think is the most reliable (trustworthy) and why?

  • Evidence can be looked at in several ways.
  • Opinions are our personal views on a subject.
