United 4 - 3 Man City

O'Shea Rio Vida Evra
Park(Valencia) Anderson(Carrick) Fletcher Giggs
Rooney Berbatov(Owen)
Welcome to the real Manchester

Wow, what a match! During the second half United performed superbly but could have ruined the show with a late blunder by Rio. Thankfully we didn't rue that mistake as well as Foster's thanks to Rooney, a brace by Fletcher and a 96 minute winner by Owen. Tevez was welcomed to Manchester with a Champions performance by the champions of England and although I'm disappointed at how we conceded the 3 goals I'm over the moon with our attackers who destroyed City during the second half.

United scored first and although it is definitely a morale booster to score so early, I argued with my mates that scoring an early goal could only trigger the opposition and that's what happened in the first half. City were better although not that threatening at the front. During the second half it was a different story. United attacked relentlessly but Given was performing miracles in the City goal meanwhile the blues attacked the United goal twice and scored two.

Anyway, all players played well. Fletcher and Anderson were untouchable in midfield while Giggs was immense on the left flank. Rooney scored and did his best while Berbatov had a good game and could have scored 2 if it wasn't for Given's saves. Owen played for 10 minutes and did his job when he scored. Valencia played quite well when he came on while the back four were quite shaky at times except for Evra who ran throughout the match like a maniac.

I'm still breathless. Another 3 years chopped off my life time? Maybe. But it was worth it.

Tevez, that's how it feels to be at City :)
Welcome to Manchester Owen!

Priceless that last picture, and a classic match throughout, but oh dear I hope United get back on track and stop gifting goals to opposition teams

I agree with you Ritesh. We must stop giving goals away. I'm pretty sure Rio won't repeat that dreadful mistake however I'm not quite sure about Foster....

at the front we're doing quite well though :)
