'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United 2 Barcelona 1

Okay, so we beat Barcelona, in Washington!

It`s a decent enough result but it doesn`t, in any way, erode the pain we felt back in May, at Wembley.

We shouldn`t get carried away; it was nothing more than a glorified friendly although it has proved that things are on the right track for the coming season.

Played in front of a record crowd of 81,807, United opened the scoring, in the twenty-second minute, when a great ball from Welbeck saw Nani beat the offside trap to score.

Barcelona then equalised through the impressive Thiago after seventy minutes before a Cleverley through ball put Owen in a one-on-one situation with the keeper that he was never going to squander.

But, as we said earlier, let`s not get too carried away, although Barcelona may well have had six of the side that beat us at Wembley in May, the likes of Messi, Xavi and Alves, much to the disappointment of the record crowd, were not playing!

We played well and it did inspire hope that our midfield has learned from our experience in May and is on the up. The defence was solid whilst the attack was clinical, fast and ever dangerous. Cleverley and Anderson have looked very good and incredibly promising during preseason and that's reflected with both of them being tipped to make the first team for the coming season. With Fletcher or Carrick playing as a more defensive CM and Anderson or Cleverley playing as a more offensive CM we've got a decent balance in midfield, a sharp contrast to last seasons ultra-defensive and ridiculously safe Carrick-Fletcher partnership.

pre-season means nothing, but I'm sure your players will all be pretty chuffed at winning this one. Just like they'll all be gutted when they lose the Community Shield. ;)
