United Too Good For Spurs, Even With Ten Men!

September 13, 2009

Tottenham Hotspurs 1 – 3 Manchester United

It was an absolute cracking game! United played brilliant football throughout the game, was amazing to watch. As always a bit slow to start, which allowed spurs take the lead through an amazing Defoe over head kick in 50 seconds! From Then on United start playing better football.

Berbatov was Class in this game, got frustrated with the booing fans, but was class, he dropped into the midfield gaps, and was tearing apart the defence! Really gave palacios a hard time, to be honest I have not seen anyone hold on the ball better than him! He got fouled just about 18 yards from goal, by palacios. Which lead to the opening goal! Giggs took it, what an amazing take it was! Curled in the top corner, The commentator thought there was a deflection, but replay showed NOT! Berbatov had 2 chances to score, beautiful play from United once again, went to Rooney he was too close to the keeper who was off his line, his effort got blocked, he passed to berba, no keeper! He takes the shot goes on Target but Palacios Blocks brilliantly, Scholes came in running, gave it back to Berba- still no keeper in the line, takes the shot this time over bar. He probably got a bit excited to score in white hart lane.

Half time was approaching, but then came a Brilliant Strike from Anderson, which lead to his 1st goal!!!Yes Anderson! It was a beautiful strike, I wonder why he has not score many more? But surely he will now!

United went in half time leading 2-1, I had a feeling there were going to be more goals in the game. The 2nd half started Scholes got a yellow for a bad challenge, game continued. Few minutes later he gets another Yellow, and another red card, when will he learn..?

After that Rooney straight ran to the gaffer, to know his new role. soon enough Carrick went on for Berbatov. And rooney was playing really deep, but now he was getting more evolved, and was playing better!

The game went on in a very good tempo for both the teams, and suddenly United started attacking- and Rooney was at the end of it! He magnificently took care of two defenders getting past one and then nutmegging one, through the keeper’s legs and 3-1! The Traveling were taunting the Spurs fans by chanting ” we only have 10 men!”.

My prediction was right! I was happy with the score + I got a few points in my fantasy league!

I’m a bit worried for Berba, 5 games played and only scored one, he better put on a scoring boot sooner than later!

    Great way for Anderson to redeem himself in the manager’s eyes, and may be try secure a place in that starting 11 with Carrick more like an invisible man these days
