Fulham 0 - 5 United
Jones(Young)(Park) Smalling Evans Evra
Valencia Carrick Giggs Nani
|Excellent Team Display|
We asked for the three points and our players gave us an excellent performance to feast our eyes upon and 5 goals. Our most influential players looked like they were getting back in form during matches vs Newcastle and Villa. The Basel game questioned that but the games that followed proofed that the likes of Nani and Valecia, amongst others, are finally back in shape. The wing show that we witnessed today was truly amazing with Nani scoring and providing two assists while Valencia created countless of opportunities. Welbeck scored an early goal, which was a reward for the performance that followed, Giggsy kept his goal every Premier League season record, Rooney scored a belter while Berbatov got in on the act with a finish that oozed class. Couldn't have asked for more!
|Our Danny Started the Rout|
We were excellent during the first half. Fulham were put to the sword and there was no way back into the game for the Londoners. It was a matter of how many goals United were going to score. However, our players were a tad complacent after the half time break and Lindegaard showed his worth with some fine saves. We only got out of our second gear late into the game when Roo scored that beauty and Berba completed the icing on the christmas cake.
Every player put in a minimum of a 7 out of 10 performance. Carrick and Giggsy controlled the midfield imperiously. Giggs was probably my man of the match today. Smalling and Evans at the back looked solid as well while our strikers did what strikers are paid to do. I ain't complaining about no one :)
|Berba's 50th United Goal Oozed Class|
The negatives that came out of this game were obviously the injuries to Jones and Young. With the latter struggling to find his feet, this injury will stop his progress towards regaining his form. We all know Young could do better than what he's been doing during the past couple of months. Joners should be OK by boxing day.
This is the United I grew to love. Destroying football teams with excellent and exciting football. This is the football I missed during that barren(goal wise) spell we had from October till late November. Let's hope this form is here to stay! Although at the end of the day scoring 1, 3 or 8 goals will still yield the same amount of points, we watch United not just because we love this club but also because we love to be entertained by our excellent footballers nurtured by the great Sir Alex. More of the same please! Wigan next on boxing day, until then
HAVE A HAPPY CHRISTMAS
