Michael Carrick decided to test everyone's patience by essentially giving away the first goal, much like God tested Abraham. Except Michael Carrick is actually real.
It was up to Anderson, the man only slightly more likely than Ben Amos to score, to grab the goal. Anderson putting in a superb performance that we were used to in 2008 but then forgot happened again until now. Dimitar Berbatov proved to everyone he wasn't all about scoring 5 goals and was still brilliant at not scoring 5 goals too. Pure class, the lad.
In slightly more worrying news, Rio Ferdinand was substituted injured, although apparently a mere precaution with a MONDAYNIGHTFOOTBALL!! (as Sky like to call it) returning (did it ever really start to begin with?) as we take on Arsenal who are top of the table since Blackpool couldn't be bothered to use their money received from being promoted into building a pitch worthy of top flight football.
So after our game against Valencia, here are my ratings for the team, which they will take to heart no doubt. Possibly affecting their entire lives.
Ben Amos - 7 nervous goalkeepers out of 10
Rafael da Silva - 9 maybeitwasFabio?s out of 10
Rio Ferdinand - 7 tweets out of 10
Nemanja Vidic - 7 kills out of 10
Fabio da Silva 8 maybeitwasRafael?s out of 10
Nani - 6 unnecessary tricks out of 10
Anderson - 9.5 terrible-for-a-brazilian dance moves out of 10
Michaek Carrick - 6.1 groans out of 10
Ji-Sung Park - 7.6 million shirts sold out of 10 million
Dimitar Berbatov - 7 no need to bother scoring this chance out of 10
Wayne Rooney - 7 haveyouforgotyet?s out of 10
Chris Smalling - 6 slightly worried gasps out of 10
Ryan Giggs - 6 just making this appearances record even more silly out of 10
I almost game Nemanja Vidic an 11 out of pure fear.
For those of you who missed out on the Jigsaw of Phil Townsend, Communications Director of Manchester United - which is now apparently sold out, christmas rush and all, on Amazing. There are other jigsaws you could buy for your friends and loved ones, how about PLC Chairman Roy Gardner, A Wilkinson Sword Advert from Over 10 Years Ago, Dietician Trevor Lee (Conveniently sat next to fruit), Ex-Academy Player Jamie Mullan or Finance Director Nick Humby
So, with our current Russian climate here in Manchester, so you think we can get a few games for the 2018 world cup?
