Happy Birthday, Sir Ryan!
I know, I know: Ryan Giggs' birthday is actually tomorrow. But today's vintage Giggs performance at Portsmouth was as good a present as anything: he was magnificent. Did he look like 36? Well, his greying hair provided evidence of his age but his display didn't.
Giggs set up a goal for Rooney with a brilliant pass, he won a penalty thanks to some not very typical harassing and scored with an excellent free-kick. Not bad for a 36-year-old in what is Europe's strongest league.
So, happy birthday, Sir Ryan Giggs, as you'll surely be known soon enough. Your display was a joy to behold, again.
