United 1 - 0 Lyon
Brown Rio Vida Evra
Ronaldo Fletcher Carrick Anderson Nani
A game as exciting as watching grass grow, but it's the result that matters and United managed to scrape through. Ronaldo proved to be our match winner, yet again as he netted his 30th goal in 30 matches. Pure brilliance, he's a genius!
Wayne Rooney cut an isolated figure up front on his own and saw little of the ball which really frustrated me, since I love seeing Wayne Rooney playing. With the formation played, we couldn't really see Wayne Rooney's true colours.
Fletcher played quite well and so did another unsung United player, Brown. United played efficiently, yet bored me to death! But at least I can look forward to another 2 European nights. With Milan & Real Madrid knocked out of the competition, I feel this really could be out year. We defenitely could beat the remaining English sides especially at Old Trafford! The only team that worries me is Barcelona. So I just hope we don't draw against them, but if we want to win the Cup we must win against the best teams. Barca defenitely posses enough talent to be considered a great team.
Next Match Vs Porthsmouth, I expect a win, and yet another step towards silverware :)
VDS-6, Brown-7, Rio-7, Vida-7, Evra-6, Ronaldo-7, Nani-7, Carrick-6, Fletcher-7, Anderson-6, Rooney-7.
