M'Boro 2 - 2 United
Brown Rio O'Shea Evra
Ronaldo Scholes Carrick Giggs
Two points dropped and our lead at the top of the table is cut to 3 points. We've got some tough matches ahead and I really believe our title bid is in shambles. Arsenal coming up, Blackburn away, Chelsea away etc.. I've got a bad feeling we will blow it.
Anyway this was a pulsating game of football and an eye pleaser for a neutral. Not for Man Utd fans though. Ronaldo gave United the lead thanks to a scrappy goal. Boro managed to get 2 goals but Rooney scored the equaliser thanks to excellent work by Park.
This was a different United we've been watching recently. Maybe the weather conditions did dent our performance but there again, M'Boro were playing in the same conditions as United. Giggs had another horrible game. To be honest Brown, Ferdinand, O'Shea, Carrick & Tevez all had a disappointing game. It was all down to Park who managed to set Rooney up and spare our blushes. Ronaldo didn't have the best of games, mainly because whenever he dribbled past a defender the latter would bring him down intentionally.
Our next match is vs Roma at home. I hope Rio gets over his injury and I hope to see Vidic return as soon as possible. Our defence without him doesn't look reliable.
Until then, KEEP THE RED FLAG FLYING HIGH! United may have lost some precious points, but we're still in pole position.
