United - It Was That Third Goal!

United - It Was That Third Goal!

A 5-0 victory is always something to chirp about!

Three points in the bag and an improvement in the goal difference, especially with City losing at Villa, all went to make it a pleasurable Saturday evening.

We`d imagine the boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, was also quite chuffed as well. Even more so when learning that his son`s side, Peterborough, had also notched a big victory, beating Hartlepool 4-0.

After the game, Sir Alex spoke about many things but seemed particularly enthusiastic about the performance of Dimitar Berbatov and the third goal, on the stroke of half time, that killed off Birmingham City, remarking in a post match interview,

"I thought Berba was marvellous, but he could have scored more."

"We can be wasteful with our chances sometimes but you can`t complain after a performance like that, that`s the important thing."

"It was a very good display and third goal was very exciting."

"The interchange between the two forwards was fantastic."

"First Berba won the ball then he played it to Wayne Rooney and he hit a great ball to Ryan Giggs. It was so exciting. It came right before half time and killed the match."

"It helps the gaol difference and we have some tough games ahead of course."

"But hopefully the lads can grasp the nettle because they have the experience, the depth in the squad."


The wagon is rolling - next stop Blackpool and all those 'Kiss Me Quick` hats!

We should be wary of Blackpools gung ho approach however I can see it being there downfall on Tuesday especially with counter-attacking football being our speciality.
