That's how you play football

Manchester United

Our second half performance on an awful pitch was great. If you watched the match, you would have seen a close up of a piece of turf the size of Frank Lampard's hand.

But, when we brought on Saha and Anderson, we were brilliant.

Lucky, lucky, lucky.

All I can say is this was a victory all round for Portuguese football.

Chelsea are there for the taking

My Friends
Greatings from Portugal and from Oporto. I just don't understand how some lads in England still have doubts about Cristiano Ronaldo skills and performance... Yesterday he was once again and as usual the best. I´ve been in Alvalade and i can assure you that´s an incredible pleasure to see Ronaldo playing... Ronaldo is the best of the world.

It was a pretty useless preformance. No play what so ever through the middle. With Scholes and Giggs there should have been some creativity and posession, but there wasn't. It seemed that Wes Brown had more of the ball than the other 10 players put together!

Moving Scholes back into Hargreaves' postion seemed to help a bit but what the game really needed was for somebody to provide the central link between the man deep in midfield and the striker. I though Giggs would do it but that didn't happen. In fact, none of the midfield 3 really pushed forward into that space until after the goal. And even then it wasn't great.

A lot of people have mentioned playing 4-2-3-1 so far. And I have to agree - seems like the way to go.

Man U not playing well, but got a result. The team looked a bit lethargic and lacked some invention. A goal from a Brown cross of all people!

Fernerbache realy gived Inter a hard evening in Istanbull with it's 6 Brasilien Not fogetting the legendery Cico as manadger. Why I take this on is ManU would realy need a solid 4-4-2 system, otherwise a libro systm like the manchent, not that nice to deal whit.
