Villa 1 - 4 United

The Line Up:
Van der Sar,
Pique, Brown, Ferdinand, Evra,
Giggs, Anderson, Scholes, Nani,
Tevez, Rooney.
Another 3 points in the bag and finally we are watching the type of football everyone loves watching. 2 Goals by Rooney, a goal by Ferdinand and an Own goal gave United all the points. The score could have been bigger if United were more adventurous having a two man advantage but somehow could score more. Rooney was very unlucky not to get a hat trick after missing a penalty and cracked a shot off the bar.

The first half was dramatic to say the least. United were losing to a goal by Agbonlahor until the last 10 minutes when 2 goals by Rooney and a goal by Ferdinand (Some may argue that it was an own goal, all I know is that it’s a goal and that’s what matters!) literally demoralized Villa. So the half time score was 3-1 and I was a very happy man, or boy anyway.

The Second half began and Villa looked threatening but thanks to Pique who cleared off the line they didn’t get into the game and that chance was indeed their last chance. United were in total control especially when Reo Coker was sent off and later goalkeeper Carson was dismissed too. But we didn’t have it all our way since a penalty by Wayne Rooney was saved by Taylor, and later Rooney’s shot cracked off the bar.

Another great game and alas, this is the United we know. Great football by all the players Tevez was exceptional and so was Rooney. He is nearing his peak, 4 goals in a week and the one vs Russia was pretty special although worthless. So now we are keeping the pressure on Arsenal who won again today, they really should beware, why? Because finally the United team is gelling, and are playing great football. Our next match is vs Dinamo Kiev in the champions league and then a tricky home game vs Middlesborough. I predict two wins, but we'll just wait and see.

I’m sorry for the quality of this week’s article but I’m in a hurry to go out with my friends, so no ratings today. Adios!
