United 0 - 0 Juventus
Just like the Italian commentators, I was impressed with the atmosphere the fans at Old Trafford created but wasn't impressed at all by the two teams on the pitch. The match was dull and there weren't an awful lot of scoring opportunities.
But defensive wise United were spot on once again. Our defence looks solid. Rafael da Silva had another impressive game and I believe he will be heavily featured during the course of the season.
Now the real business starts, United will face Portsmouth next Sunday. The traditional English curtain raiser. Last year United won this shield, let's make it two in a row! At least if we don't win anything during the season, we would have a piece of silverware to pose with, in the annual season photo!
United: Van der Sar; Evra, Ferdinand, Vidic (Evans 78), Brown (R da Silva 46); Darren Fletcher (Gibson 46), Paul Scholes, John O’Shea (Possebon 69), Lee Martin (Silvestre 65); Ryan Giggs, Carlos Tevez (Campbell 69)
