Don't know about you guys but when my team goes out on a pre-season tour such as the one United are involved in, I expect to rout one or two opponents as there is the general idea that these sides are not up to the level we are.
So after playing three games and failing to produce more than three goals, I must say I was abit disappointed with United, not today though, as the boys managed to put 8 goals past Greentown--the final game of our Far East tour.
To cut the long story short, it was a fantastic performance form all that played the game. Michael Owen scored twice--his second a sublime volley after a magical flip by magic-feet, Berbatov. It is his best so far for United--and he's now scored four goals on tour--not bad for a free signing.
Nani got on the score-sheet as well and did also contribute with two assists. Berbatov scored and made two whilst an 18year old Ryan Giggs got himself a second half hat-trick.
It could really have been double figures for United as we hit the wood-work three times in the second half. Evra and Anderson all came close to grabbing rare goals, but for the latter, it seems he'll have to be given a chance from 1 yard if he's to convert.
As far as partnerships go, the Berbatov Owen one has been the best so far this pre-season. Hope Fergie tries out Owen and Rooney on Wednesday against Boca Juniors.
United of course do fly out tonight for Germany to compete in the two-day Audi Cup.
