CSKA 0 - 1 United

Neville Rio(Brown) Vida Fabio(Carrick)
Valencia Scholes(Owen) O'Shea Anderson Nani

The starting line up might have raised a few eyebrows but with our ever increasing injury list Fergie had no other option. We got used to Fergie's infamous Champions League 4-5-1 away formation so there were no surprises there. All in all the United players had a good second half performance after a drab and monotonous first half. Valencia who was anonymous during the first half managed to set the world alight with some fine dribbling skills, a thunderous shot that rattled the crossbar and of course a well taken goal.

Both Fabio and Neville had a great match. Neville's last couple of matches showed that he's still a valid member of our squad. Nani was poor. Although unlucky not to score, his final pass was awful once again. It was nice to see Brown back in action and VDS keeping a clean sheet. Unless something catastrophic happens United are through to the next stage of the Champions League!

Our next match is vs Liverpool. At Anfield you can expect two things, either a United side willing to beat Liverpool in their own back yard or a spirited Liverpool side eager to bounce back from their recent disappointments backed by their fans. Whatever happens we'll keep the red flag flying high!
Come on United
