The elements are there and with their accomplishment detailed right before them, everything seems to be in place for the current stars of the United Reds team towards impending superstardom. However, it takes more than just one championship to categorize them in the legendary status that they are aiming for. Winning tradition is the key and for Dutch Stopper Edwin van der Sar, this is achievable.
“You do not become a legend overnight – you have to win things over a long period,” insists van der Sar. “The players have shown their ability this season. Every game has been important for us and we’ve shown we have been up for every one.
“Every player selected for Saturday or Tuesday or Wednesday has had to perform and we have not had to carry any one.
“Chelsea were so well ahead in the previous seasons. But this season, we have been playing well enough to cope with anything that has been put in our way.
“The squad is well positioned to achieve something special,” adds the 36-year-old. “It takes a long time to work towards something like this but now the team must go on.
“It is not just about winning something once but two or three times and that is the challenge.” – Starlets can become legends
Hence to sum it all up, it is for the current roster of the United Reds to gain or lose. Everything is under their hands.
After a forgetful loss to AC Milan, the Reds are back in harness with a much needed victory over the Manchester City. The United Reds defeated the Manchester City 1-0 courtesy of Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty goal.
It was a path towards the right direction as the painful loss had been a bitter pill to swallow for the powerhouse United Reds ball club. But in the same way that they have rebounded from various setbacks throughout, it was a good statement to prove that the Reds do have what it takes to recover lost ground especially in the ongoing Premiereship title.
Actually, the loss to AC Milan seemed to have awoken a sleeping giant beset by various issues and injuries and Manchester City was unfortunately in the way of the wrath of the Reds. Through the efforts of Cristiano Ronaldo and Michael Carrick, the hard-earned victory is something to put them back on the right track and recover whatever loss they had encountered beforehand.
Many people know the impossible can happen, but even for this famous and decorated ball club, something has to give some time. Already beset with injuries to key players, the United Reds fell short of their goal as they bowed to the superior AC Milan 3-0 in the San Siro.
There was nothing really lost but pride since ordinarily, playing beyond the odds and reaching this stage of the tournament despite lack of player arsenal has been an overachievement in itself. As Sir Alex Ferguson put it:
“We gave away goals very cheaply and at this level you can’t do that. Credit to Milan though, they pressed us really well and were very well prepared. They were certainly sharper and quicker to the ball. They’ve been good winners.”
Truly, United may have played poorly, but credit this to fatigue and lack of player experience in tow. Whatever the excuse may be, it all stands that the United Reds have once again why they are among the elite ball clubs to grace the sport.

Time and again it has been said that the key to a good offense is good defense. This is becoming a household adage in any game and the United Reds had to find it out the hard way. Their poor performance in protecting the ball was a key factor in their loss to AC Milan 5-3 at the Champions League semi-finals second leg.
Such sentiments were voiced out by Reds winger Ryan Giggs as the team suffered the heartbreaking setback all due to its making. The team had all the chances and could have even pulled it off if they had pulled their act together. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. The Reds offensive sock was still around, but without proper defense on the other end, all of the efforts are negated and led to the painful setback.
“In both legs, we’ve let bad goals in and there’s no defending that,” he admitted. “We attack as a team and we defend as a team and we didn’t defend as well as we have this season against Milan.” � Ryan Giggs, Poor possession costly.
