Anderson. It Was Actually ANDERSON

Anderson. It Was Actually ANDERSON

The world did not end on Saturday night although it could have done so. For one of its most fundamental principles was challenged and destroyed and its entire existence was on the line. Anderson Luis de Abreu Oliveira scored a goal. In a competitive game. Not in a penalty shootout.

And it wasn't a meaningless tap-in against a League One side in the Carling Cup. It was against Tottenham Hotspur who won 4 out of 4, it was with the score at 1-1, the game finely balanced (though United were in control by that time) and it was a classy, difficult finish. Yet, I repeat, the world did not end.

It was a surprisingly cool, reserved celebration after a drought of 78 competitive games - but perhaps that was so because of the amount of stick he's been getting. Whatever the reason was, the 44th minute at White Hart Lane will be one of the endearing, cherished memories of the 2009/10 season. Because, let's face it lads, none of us really believed that this moment would actually come: that Anderson would finally score a goal.

Well done Anderson.... AT LAST!!! :D Think he'll go on and score a few more now. Rooney, Fletch and Giggs were terrific and the team looked good. Bring on City after a trip to Turkey-enjoying having football back again.

I think alot of people had to check their pulse when hearing this. But being serious it was a great goal and I hope he goes on to score again and again and again, because it would great to finally see him on top form.
