If you don’t watch for the goals – watch for the commentator!
I came across an absolutely fantastic promotion video for the Champions League final, and wanted to share it with you all, so enjoy:
Bring on Barca!
Rarely have I seen praise for Gibson from United fans and it always seems it’s his fault when the team doesn’t win or performs below par. Despite this, though, Sir Alex Ferguson, one of the greatest manager’s of all time who has won countless silverware, continues to pick him. The Northern Ireland international has made 20 appearances this season, scoring just twice, and played 58times in total for United.

After the disappointing loss at the Emirates, Manchester United hoped they would quickly bounce back and finish up the job in Europe v FC Schalke 04. After 9 changes were made in the XI that played v Arsenal, some were left raising their eyebrows at Sir Alex Ferguson – but we should all know not to question his brilliance when it comes to winning trophies. As usual, as the game kicked off, Schalke seemed to have a little bit of an edge with the possession until the squad kicked into their stride.
It only took 26 minutes for Darron Gibson to set Valencia free, with an absolutely beautiful ball. Valencia scored the goal, and after that, I don’t think we heard from the Gibbo haters for the rest of the night. In quick succession, it was Valencia who set Gibbo free at goal – and we scored in the 31st minute. Nothing like a “thank you” in the form of a goal for Gibbo, eh? Schalke would then come back into the game slightly, scoring a goal in the 35th minute. But after that, the game was pretty much done and dusted as the aggregate scoreline read 4-1.
This may be the best performance I’ve ever seen from the boys in Red this evening in Germany. Manchester United totally outclassed Schalke 04 this evening in a game that ended up being 0-2 to the reds. Fantastic performance.
In the semi-final of the Champions League, you would of thought it would of been a very tight game. Not tonight, we were class. Totally dominated the Germans this evening, with 18 attempts on goal, but for Neuer, Schalke were very very disappointing.
Wayne Rooney took the time out to talk to Richard Keys and Andy Gray this morning on TalkSPORT after last night’s emphatic win at Old Trafford against Chelsea in the Champions League Quarter Finals. Here’s what he had to say:
Everyone knows Chelsea’s owner, Roman Abramovich, is quite obsessed with winning the UEFA Champions League. In 2008, Chelsea reached the final, but failed again to win it in a penalty shootout against Manchester United. John Terry could have won it for his club, but slipped and put the ball wide. Then, man of the match, Van der Sar put in a top class save from a poor penalty by Anelka and won the UEFA Champions League for Manchester United in Moscow. One of the most memorable matches against Chelsea, in my opinion.
On a beautiful sunny afternoon at Old Trafford, the Reds took another huge 3 points towards a record 19th league title with a comfortable 2-0 win over Fulham thanks to a wonderful afternoon of chances and goals from Dimitar Berbatov and Antonio Valencia.

Manchester United dominated at Upton Park with huge thanks to a name you’ve all heard of many a time before, Wayne Rooney. Wayne scored a fantastic hattrick at Upton Park this afternoon consisting of a brilliant free kick, a fantastic strike from the edge of the area to the bottom corner and a wonderful penalty to cap it all off. That’s without mentioning Mr. Javier Hernandez too! Who capped it all off at the end of the game, making sure that Manchester United take all 3 points away.
