Last night Manchester United took on Glasgow Celtic in their first pre season match on the 2010 tour. We started the game with a pretty strong line up as follows:
Van Der Sar
Rafael Smalling Evans Fabio
Obertan Fletcher Scholes Giggs
It started of slowly I guess seeing that it was our very first game back from the summer break. Everyone was happy to see Smalling start, so I payed lots of attention to him! He played well but the penalty fault ruined his overall proformance. But at the end of the day the best of defenders make them mistakes even at the prime of their career’s. I have high expectations for the young half and can’t wait to see more of him.
The two Da Silva twins both had good games as normal really showing their great attacking style football which all us Manchester United fans love to see. But the pair would want to pick up on their defensive side of the game.
Obertan was well able to show his pace when he needed but end product was the problem. Its a problem with many young wingers in todays game looking at Nani who only started to improve on that at the end of last season.
What can I say about Paul Scholes he always had it and always will. There wasn’t a better player on the pitch last night then the ginger genius. The way he spreads the ball is nothing but a work of art, I know thats always been the way but he never lost it!
And the man of the moment Berbatov who scored the first goal in superb style plus playing a part in the other two other goals scored by Welbeck and Cleverly. Berbatov also got man of the match which I was happy to see because I don’t agree with not supporting the players that wear your clubs shirt and hopefully he wins back a few supporters if he keeps improving from last night on. Diouf did everything right in my eyes, himself and Berbatov had a great partnership going with great link up play from time to time.
Next match is on Wednesday 21st of July against Philadelphia which after we’ll have another match report for. This is Stretty News’s first Match Report and the main thing we want out of this is for people to show their own opinion’s on it so feel free to add them below in the comment section.
