If anybody watched our first game of the season, you'd think that United was going to struggle to keep their title (fair) but you'd also think that Newcastle were good enough for a place in Europe! Such was the hype about their performance in the press that August that one would under look the fact that United started the season way under-strength due to injuries and suspensions. Roll on to May and we have won the title with game spare whilst our supposed better opponents that day are relegated to the second tier of English football--it's amazing how long a season can be!
Anyhow, United, albeit with a junior team went on to record a victory on the last day of the season against a Hull City side that was desperate to stay up. Let me just say that I was pleased for them that they stayed because I have nothing against them. Unfortunately you cannot say the same for Newcastle and Boro. After spending all week moaning about the side that Sir Alex would put out, they go and display football of Championship level. It almost seems like Alan Shearer forgot about the class of his opponents in Aston Villa! So United go and do he job for them the other side and they cannot do theirs--which was simply to score a goal! Pathetic!
Now, it was a very well taken goal from Gibson and I thought that the entire team did well enough--it certainly was not our worst performance of the season, so well done lads. I still think that Nani should stick to what he can do better instead of trying to be like Ronaldo-- the lad can create and can run at defenders with his pace so no need to score if you can assist!
We're now off to Rome for the Champions League final--a preview that I'll make in 2 days time!
What I could give for a victory!
