Lyon 1 - 1 United
I'm more than pleased with this result but let's face it, a 1-1 draw is a bit harsh given the possession we had during the second half. Rooney was too isolated and except for the 1 chance he had, he was out of the game.
The first half was a quiet one and only Rooney could have scored from both sets of teams, but the second half was a different story. United kept possesion well and tried hard to penetrate the stubborn Lyon defence. Ironically it was the Lyon team who got their noses in front with a fine goal by a United target, Ben something.
The introduction of Tevez and Nani gave United a breath of fresh air, and in the end it was Nani's cross which was converted to the back of the net by Tevez. A goal which might send United to the quarter finals. An away goal is just priceless.
N.B Giggs isn't the Giggs we knew anymore, Ferguson must drop him. Meanwhile Scholes is still a valid player, his accuracy in his passing is just phenomenal. Fergie, give Giggs a break and let him fight to get back into the team, it will do him good.
Next Match Vs Newcastle..... Will be difficult, I just hope we win.
