SWEET REVENGE--PART 1.


I've been on a terrible hangover lately, so apologies from yours truly for not being as efficient. So what did I miss? I was shocked to learn that United were to play 2 games in 24 hours(insanity if you ask me) so I crawled out of bed to the nearest TV set to catch a glimpse of the game in Nigeria, Abuja against more familiar opponents, Portsmouth. The blue furred sheep were the ones that denied us a Treble last year as they somehow managed to win a game that in all fairness, they shouldn't have. Anyway, football always provides the chance for revenge(more of a case of you can run but you can't hide). So it was satisfying to watch United batter them with a not-so-strong line-up.(speaks volumes eh?). But again it's worth sparing few lines to praise our Academy lads. Chris Eagles, despite missing a couple of golden chances got another goal for himself, while Campbell, despite having one or two problems with his left foot, finally scored on Saturday against Kaizer Chiefs. The young Brazilian Rodrigo Possebon(nice name eh?) also made some brilliant touches that reminded us of his nationality time and time again. It was also good to see Carlitos score his first goal since netting the first penalty in Moscow(and what a cracker). Reports over the weekend suggested that we have permanently signed him for an accumulated fee of 32m pounds.(Trust me, he's worth it!). Next up for United is that long awaited Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer Testimonial match against Espanyol--the lad is a Saint.(more on that later).
