Stoke 0 – Manchester United 2
Manchester United: Berbatov (62), O’Shea (77)
My busy schedules kept me off from this wonderful game.However,I somehow managed my self with a copy of this game and damn,it was worth it.
Well if you are one of those fans who has watched almost all players present that night from their first United game it could be a relish how you see your favorite player perform that night.
For first hour, it looked tragic how United players were working the game against the team who looked vulnerable for lots of time and we were going to settle for another one goal victory.Well yea victory was sure but could it be more than one goal.For that we were responsible on few players.
Nani on lots of occasions was going selfish and Valencia kept spoiling at very last second of his tackle.The mid field was the power house of them.There was some brilliance working in middle from Scholey,Carrick and Fletcher.That was some where holding the team in their boots.Rooney was the only guy attacking first half but wasn’t great converting on occasions.Our superiority wasn’t producing any goals until Ryan Giggs came into picture.
The much awaited brilliance and a pinch of magic was brought into game after he was brought in.He declared his arrival with a top notch pass which even Berbatov racked it up.I don’t expect Berba to work on first try but then it was Giggs ball.You don’t just throw such balls if u don’t have it in you.A pure Ryan-Giggs class.
The second goal too involved nothing but Ryan Giggs again.A floated free-kick over O’Shea made 2 goals for United and was enough to close the show for Stoke City.
Foster who had pathetic last week rested during major time of game.There were lots of selfish runs from Nani,risky Scholes tackles and Rooney’s angry shouting during the game that helped us out.
Another good thing that happened same night was Blues were pulled down by Wigan after Chelsea went down with 10 men.3 massive goals were scored by them which brought Chelsea down from table to second place.United now are resting back to old position.
Things are looking somewhat more effective in Fergie’s way compared to how people were looking to this season.No big signings and still we are doing great.Still no signs of Hargo,but i can’t just imagine how firm our team will go.We are definitely not missing Ronaldo for now.:)
