United 2 - 0 Tottenham
Neville Brown Vidic DeLaet
Obertan(Carrick) Gibson Anderson(Tosic) Park
United are through to the Carling Cup semi finals thanks to two spectacular goals by Gibson. Yep, the same guy most reporters had written off after last week's display vs Besiktas. Well done Gibbo lad!
In my opinion the best players on the pitch were Gibson, Anderson and Vidic. Anderson and Vidic were both immense today. Anderson ran his socks off while Vidic marshalled our back four expertly. Park played the whole match and that's a big big positive since we'll need his energy as the season grows older and Giggsy's legs start to tire. De Laet also did well at right back but IMO Evra is miles ahead of him.
Our team today featured 7 players who aren't considered as first team players and we still managed to win against a Tottenham side full of first teamers. This speaks heaps of our youths, and whoever doubted our youngsters last week probably felt like a complete jackass while watching this game. Nothing spectacular, just a tidy performance, a good result and another semi final to look forward to. Well done lads!
