The Line Up:

Ronaldo Carrick Scholes Nani
Giggs Rooney

Another 1-0 win, this time in the Champions League. We were quite lucky to end up with 3 points as Sporting attacked relentlessly, credit goes to Van der Sar who in my opinion was the man of the match and kept the Sporting attacks at bay. The match was decided by a great diving header by Ronaldo after the hour's mark. This lad could dive!

United's first half performance, like all other United first half performances this season, was mediocre. The only team that looked like scoring were Sporting, and if it wasn't for Van der Sar, Sporting could have been leading at least 1-0 before the break.

In the second half United didn't seem to change, Sporting kept attacking but credit goes to our defence for a fine performance and of course Van Der Sar. In the last half hour of the match, United seemed to get the hang of it and actually began attacking and for the first time in the match they looked like scoring, and alas United got the goal. A fine move by United was finished by a brilliant diving header by Ronaldo. When it comes to diving, Ronaldo is surely an expert! At least his dive was fruitful to United. After the goal United seemed to have got their confidence back, Ronaldo resurrected and became quite threatening and Saha could have scored at least a goal from two great chances. Luck was on our side when Sportings diving header was brilliantly saved by VDS and from the rebound the ball was sent sky high. Tevez replaced Ronaldo in the dieing moments and he[Ronaldo] got an emotional standing ovation from the Sporting fans, of whom he once was a hero.
United's performance, once again, disappointed me but in matches like these its goals that count. Yeah we need to see some entertainment so that we won't sleep on our couches but a 1-0 win, away from home against a relatively good side, is great to say the least. 3 points in the bag, and we a maximum of another 9 to qualify, should we win all our home matches we will achieve this feat and head to the 2nd round of this Champs League, a cup which Ferguson seems to have a keen eye on.
