Marching from first game!!
That too without Rooney and Ronaldo.For me the bad part was that i missed the first half and also the game was aired at Sony PiX which ruined my mood with ESPN.Always enjoyed BPL matches over there.
With the game.
United were fabulous for second half,first half i missed.Tevez and Giggs were working pretty good with each other.Apart from being Man of the Match and scorer from penalty shoot out Tevez did exceptionally great in keeping tempo of the game.There were times when both sides were dulled and hardly anyone was getting interested in slides or tackles.But Tevez turned the game on with fierce runs and strikes.Had he been out of the game this match wouldn’t have been qualified as Shield match.
With Fletcher as Ronaldo was a good site.At least this proves that we have his substitute.In this 3 months till Ronaldo will be off we can use him as a winger.Fletcher still needs more experience.His place can be changed if he works out with his crossing and long run ability.As such the mid is too saturated for United and will take real deal with yourself to get in there.Fletcher still needs a lot of pace and strength to match or out class Ronaldo.Will take time but he can be there.
Our Center Mid, Carrick and Scholes .Playing since long time now they have worked out their ways for when one stays up and when the other stays down.They both are the fusion of an aggressive defender and a fierce mid-fielder.Both are awesome in breaking counter attacks and short quick through balls.For now we can completely rely on both of these.Though we still have Anderson and Hargo who too can go well in that position.But both will be out for quite a long time.Hargo’s consistency is scary i mean with his injury past.Anderson though has to get his composure back to fight for spot
Also nice to see was our new promotion F.Cambpell.The kid was good.Atleast for the time by till we don’t get any strikers he can work out well for us.
This Community shield has turned me on cant wait to get the Premier League started.
