After that Six goal slaughter to the bar codes i was hoping that Reading was to deserve the same.I wasn’t too sure for that to be same with Reading but i wanted to.Reading has matured under a premiership team under Steve Copell and doesn’t look a team for granted.
Well they proved themselves right after United made no fruitful chances to score a goal.United weren’t what they were in last match.Mid-field was full of errors and had it not been for our strong defenders,Reading would have been up with the lead.
Carrick looked a bit messed with his touch.This wasn’t the first time that he wasn’t performing well in consecutive matches.Its high time that we can move forward with him.I mean he can be provided with ample of time to make himself flawless.To stand in choice with players like Anderson,Giggs,Nani and Hargreaves,you ought to keep your standards high.Now out from Carrick and to the second half.
It looked as if it was same first half.Reading weren’t the lucky ones among the 2.With the majority chances wasted,it was our turn to make them pay for those misses.Late in second half,when the game was moving nowhere, Carlos Tevez guided an accurate cross on Rooney’s path.Not one for those legend touches but was Rooney’s genius that took the ball pass Hahnemann and United up with first goal.All cheers to Tevez
With just one goal lead you cant say anything.It looked As if Reading wont let that point go by and kept banging on United’s wall.Harper was the one of the closest,just passing by the post.This was the time when i was eager to here Ref’s whistle but damn it wasn’t to happen so quick.I knew something was missing.
It was a rare time when you can win without describing about that boy,Ronaldo.Well it wasn’t going to happen this time.The game moved to those nervy 90 minutes and the excitement was killing me.After clearing the ball from defense,Vidic headed the ball to Ronaldo.He was alone with just one defender and Rooney in support.Only one Reading defender back ? It was bread and butter for Ronaldo.Guys this man can beat 7 players all together!! How can this one stop him.Rooney distracting that single Reading guy,Ronaldo kept is goal scoring spree on as he scored United’ second of the game.
A good match in all.A tough one and worth watching.with literally no difference between top 2 leaders you wont let a single point pass.Arsenal too kept there winning record on and they tie on second place with United.Those heavy Newcastle goals helped us out to keep the number one spot difference.
Man of the match: Wayne Rooney Ronaldo scoring is 23rd goal(Still the top scorer.)
Enjoy your weekend !!
