Besiktas 0 – Manchester United 1(scholes-77′)
Our first champions league game and it looked like a league cup scenario.Had it not been for the crowd it was a dull 90 minutes of soccer and an eye paining night.These are those few matches for which i have high hopes to be entertained and United turns out pissed out.
Fergie without doubts came with plans to outclassed Turks.The best possibles were on the ground and there was no chance to drop any points.But as game progressed it was turning into a dull soccer game where u would enjoy watching chicks in the crowd.Sadly we didnt have that too.
Crowd could have played a major role but the Turks never expected them to be this loud.The game started and then….Nothing happened for first half !!.Those 45 minutes were more than pathetic to both sides.No real threat moving in any of directions and only direct shots coming through the way.Fergie’s 4-5-1 didnt work out for first 65 minutes and then suddenly he was blessed with wisdom for which he then move back to the 4-4-2 bringing Berbatov with Owen.Fustrated Rooney was removed and saved for week end along with his anger leaking on the pitch.Fergie being unbothered and hopefully positive for the fixtures focused his eyes to the game.The game then advanced to better side and United started looking more adventurous.The game looked for alive cause United filled their boots with 2 best wingers.Valencia showed why he was picked and Nani just doing right.And finally the much awaited happened.United scored their first goal from Scholes after the keeper failed to Keep Nani’s ball out.A spectacular goal compared to the standards that we played.All that was boring ended impressively.
A good goal that that kept me talking for a debate with my friend for why we were missing Ronaldo and Tevez.
All that was looking boring turned into a hard earned victory.Nothing spectacular but all hard work.
However a good start to Champions League campagin.
