United 1 - 0 M'Boro
Rafael(Neville) Evans Vidic O'Shea(Scholes)
Ronaldo Fletcher(Giggs) Carrick Park
I was present at Old Trafford during this match. I will give you a rough account of my experience at the Theatre Of Dreams in the next blog.
United should have won this match by at least 3 goals. Ronaldo (who's heart seems set somewhere else), Rooney and Park missed some great opportunities. The latter missed a sitter from a yard out and to be honest I can't phantom how on earth he managed to shoot over the bar.
Anyway the match was decided thanks to Berbatov who played like crap for most of the match. To be fair with Berbatov, apart from Evans, Vidic, Scholes, Neville, Rooney & Park(not considering the sitters he missed) the whole team played like crap. 6 players from a possible 14 had an acceptable performance, that shows United have still to reach Championship form.
This was the 4th 1-0 in a row, something is wrong and Fergie better finds out what is causing this goal draught. I would prefer to watch United play the champaigne football we got accostumed to seeing at the Theatre Of Dreams, but then again if someone tells me United will win the Premier League by grinding out results, I would take it anyday.
Next match is vs Southampton, a game valid for the Fa Cup.
