United 3 Wolves 2

United eased into the quarter finals after a five goal thriller of a second half at Old Trafford.

Continuing their defence of the Carling Cup, Sir Alex Ferguson surprised very few people with his starting eleven selection!

The eleven chosen by Sir Alex bore very little resemblance to that which had started at Stoke on Sunday with several fringe players filling the eleven positions.

Amongst the plethora of changes were starting places for Amos an dBebe.

United - Amos, Brown, Smalling, Evans, Fabio, Obertan, Carrick, Gibson, Park, Macheda, Bebe

Subs - Kuszczak, Neville, Hernadez, Rafael, Brady, Eikrem, Morrison

The first half proved to be a tedious affair with neither side really testing the other. In fact it`s fair to say it was littered with errors. United created few chances although Macheda and Bebe did place shots straight at the Wolves keeper Hennessey.

Our visitors probably had more possession than they thought they would but created no clear cut chances, perhaps the best effort they had came from a corner which Mouyokolo couldn`t get on target.

Hopefully the second half would provide better fare!

Half Time - United 0 Wolves 0

United tried to force the issue early on but Carrick fired well over. United should have taken the lead when Carrick put Par clear but his shot was curled straight at the keeper. But, thankfully, United did take the lead almost immediately after when Bebe got his first goal for United.

The goal was somewhat fortunate with Bebe`s cross taking a huge deflection off Elokobi before deceiving Hennessey and resting in the net, despite the attempts of Foley to clear it.

United 1 Wolves 0 - Bebe - 56 mins

The lead didn`t last long though when Elokobi equalised four minutes later. The goal coming after Fabio had blocked an effort for Hunt but the resulting corner saw Elokbi head home. All to play for!

United 1 Wolves 1 - Elokobi - 60 mins

Wolves were now in the ascendancy and a Hunt shot clipped the top of the bar. But just as you though the visitors might nick this one United scored through Park The goal came after Park burst into the box, Mouyokolo got across but the ball came back to Park who scored past Hennessey.

United 2 Wolves 1 - Park - 70 mins

But Wolves were not finished and just as United were contemplating a place in the last eight Wolves equalised through Foley. The goal coming after Ebanks-Blake fed Fletcher and his touch provided Foley with a great chance to beat Amos which is exactly what he did.

United 2 Wolves 2 - Foley - 76 mins

Buoyed by the equaliser Wolves almost snatched the lead when Ebanks-Blake fired inches wide. Just as it looked as if the tie was destined for extra time Hernandez, on as a second half substitute scored collecting a pass from Gibson before he skipped past two defenders and slotted home

United 3 Wolves 2 - Hernandez - 90 mins

United were through to the last eight!

Ease past Wolves? Your headline and report sir are a contradiction epitomized. Match report, which does not insult United, is available at Vital Wolves.

The link for The Devils. I predicted, silly me perhaps, a shock 3-1 win for our boys but the story tells it as it is. http://www.wolves.vitalfootball.co.uk/matchrep.asp?a=218680
New York City Wolf
Only 46000 at the swamp last night, or less than two thirds full - shades of the future perhaps?

0-3 to Assanal, shades of the future perhaps, ohh wait, things of the past, present and future.. Fifthcolumn look only at your own pathetic club, and the empty trophy cabinet.. By the way is your top mercenary Tevez leaving.. ?

NYCWolf our side put up a really good fight, well played. A good result though I would like to see a good FA cup run to go with it.

I've just read that Man U bought Nobby style's World cup medal, what a decent gesture! If they return it to the family, I'll be even more impressed! It was bought for 160,000 at auction, so enough to pay Rooney for half a week,,, c'mn give it back to the family, they deserve it!
