It had to be all over.United were all on grounds.Had it been away the scoreline and situation would have been different.No Ferdi,no Vidic, No Scholes and No Rooney.Evans,O’Shea,Neville and Evra were the ones backing our wall and it was the worst possible configuration that i could imagine.Villa wasn’t the same that we faced last year.They looked different and played different.The team absolutely has their past of being the 5th team and are equal competitors to this season’s top 4.
The start was similar to our last 3 games.United were struggling in their boots while Villa was making most of it.The opening moments were quite scary.Flectcher saving on pole,VDS jumping high and all proving that United ain’t having a fest. Agbonlahor played similar position which Ronaldo plays for United and that proved how vunerable we can be against such players.Gary kept chasing and was only left with dust to watch.
A goal had to come soon and was a gifted one. Friedel was caught napping and Barry padded a backpass which gifted United a worthy freekick inside the box. Ronaldo was on position and a fierce strike Handed United their first goal.It seemed impossible to score but replay showed it was impossible to stop.Was pure Ronaldo style!!.
But that was it.The show stopped for United and it was Villa’s turn to turn back on us.It looked for a moment that United were on brink of scoring another until Barry-Carew changed the phase.A deep ball in by Barry found Carew marked unmarked by Gary and a ball saying “hit me in” was headed for a goal. Neville was out classed easily by Carew physical structure and he could only admire this giant fellow.That proved Neville’s vunerability in centre and totally changed the game for United.The vicious header was enough to hold United’s momentum and the Villa only needed break to compose themselves back.
Sadly, second half time was also what Villa did and this time it was Agbonlahor .A clusmy header from Petrov’s cross giving Villa the lead in a see-saw contest.
2 goals down and something had to be done. 17-year old Italian Fedrico Macheda brought on the field.
Still nothing changed in the game until Ronaldo pumped the hit.With only last quarter to spare,United plung back in the game with some one brilliant football.Ronaldo took the charge,took a remarkable shot curling past Friedel.Score’s level and it looked a dervesing draw.
Fergie however was running if different plans.Welbeck brought in and nearly scored but shot saved by the goalie.Then in dying minutes,The Italian fired.
The 17-year old breezing past Villa’s wall,danacing and turning scored a beauty .The ball curling to its maximum and Fridel being mere spectector.This had to be his debut and no could take that.The game ends,Villa now on their grounds.A fitting victory and some energtic play by our best footballer of the year.
If he continues the same way,United are surely to make quintuple this season.
