Blackburn 0 - 2 United
Van der Sar;
Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra (O'Shea 71);
Fletcher, Anderson, Giggs (Tevez 66);
Rooney (Park 77), Ronaldo, Berbatov.
Another win, another clean sheet and another step towards the top spot, where we truely belong. United could have scored 5 today but Tevez was denied by the post, Giggs had a screamer saved by the Blackburn keeper while Ronaldo and Fletcher missed from ideal positions. United got ahead thanks to a header by Brown. Quite a controversial goal given the fact that Vidic elbowed the Blackburn keeper, but right now lady luck seems to be smiling at us. The second goal had class written all over it. Great through ball by Brown, great run by Ronaldo and an unstoppable strike by the in-form Rooney. Exceptional!
Rooney is really showing his true colours. His performances in the past few weeks, namely since his performance against Croatia, have upped. I really enjoy it when Rooney scores, I just don't know why. Berbatov showed glimpses of the footballing genius everbody says he is and the back four were rock solid once again. Everything is seemingly clicking and United may be reaching their true potential.
Our next match is vs WBA in a fortnight. Meanwhile my eyes will turn on England, I hope they win. The win against Croatia has really got me excited and looking forward to more mind blowing performances like that. Speaking with United's interest on my mind, I hope no United player gets injured during this international break.
