Happy Birthday, Sir Ryan!

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.

And of course it was his 100th Premier League goal.

I remember Fergie saying that because of Giggsys balance he plays really well in the rain. Thought he was talking ********* to be fair, but maybe he was right, as he certainly put in a good one today.

Yeah, Giggs himself confirmed that the rain had indeed helped. Strange, to say the least, I always thought that players who rely on technique hate rain.

U just have to look at the likes of ronaldinho,ronaldo(the striker),adriano,to understand the greatness of giggsy,he has kept himself in a great physical shape,has kept that hunger to win plus has passed on that hunger to win to the rest of the squad.He is just a God given gift to any football supporter and how lucky are we to have him in our squad for the past 18 and a half yrs.
