Who cares through to next round top of the prem easy does it
Another bribe,another win.
To start any game with a midfield trio that included Giggs (too old) and Nani (a totally inconsistent prima donna), neither of whom having the inclination to really defend and not much idea about winning the ball back, was stupid. Add to this Valencia at full back (where his defending is hit and miss), and Wellbeck up front, who gets around well, but lacks the ball control skills so necessary at this level. So I had a moan and sat and suffered. Rooney made 3 superb passes in the first 8 minutes: first to Nani, wide on the right, who made a feeble effort to beat the fullback and lost the ball. The second was also to Nani, who mistimed his run and was off-side. And the third was to Wellbeck, wide on the left, and knowing he didn't have the skill, turned back towards United's half, and lost the ball. On each occasion, Rooney and others had steamed forward, only to disconsolately stop, because the clowns had blown the chance. In the second half, when Van Persie came on; for some reason, the ineffective Giggs (Played on the left wing for most of his life, SIR), was left in the middle, and Rooney was moved to the left wing!!!!!! Appalling decisions. United must buy a world class midfield player. Preferably, one that will shake his fist at them, when they play as they did in the first half last night.
last night proved a point soon as fergie takes the b team off we score .get rid of nani give giggs is pension ones not as good as he thinks he is and the other ones past it .and another thing if these illiterate city supporters can't spell and don't make sense don't post their comments they full of bile anyway
Well as said before the match, braga would start strong but united will remain focused and win 3.1,,,,,so thats stuart X one up on the bookies yet again..glory glory man united!
Cheers John @162, so the only cowboy outfit on TV on Thurdays will be the Hatfield's and McCoy's, that sounds good to me!
Man #$%$ in ITV 5.
Big up utd
Well done United. Hopefully Fergie doesn't take his foot off the gas now United are into the next round. A 100% group stage record would be a great achievement.
post 153 Big Geordie- sorry mate you have been mis-informed Man. City missed out narrowly on a UEFA cup place by finishing bottom of their group so Thursday night television will not be that bad afterall.
my old man said be a city fan i said
Littlepool are tragic United are Magic
Thanks for keeping me company this evening, even through the 12-minute blackout. A dull first half thankfully wiped out by an eventful second in every way conceivable. I'm curious to know what you make of it all. I don't know what i make of the game but i know what i make of you mr commentator you sad bitter ABU go and watch Man Chitty getting owned you #$%$
there was no penalty, rooney should be fined for that simulation...
how many penalty did manure get during this season ? How many red card did the ref pulled out ?
Has anyone seen Man City, I hear they are in the Uefa cup now?
there is only one that is united and it is MAN UNITED
Giggs too slow, Evans too shaky, Nani is useless and Welbeck cannot score but apart from that everything's just great!

There are currently no live events taking place.
Challenge after challenge, block after block and a stoppage time goal-line clearance which ultimately and unfortunately ended up moot, like the rest of the centre-back's rock-like performance.
