United win in dramatic fashion

United win in dramatic fashion

Nothing is won, apart from the shield, although local pride and more importantly a 'marker' has been put down following a dramatic community shield win by United this afternoon.

From 2-0 down United came back to beat City 3-2 in injury-time.

Lescott (38) and Dzeko (45) on the stroke of half time saw City go into the interval in complete control and looking on course to set down their own marker...

United though, once more, proved that they are never beaten until the full time whistle is blown and two goals in quick succession in the opening 15-minutes of the 2nd half from Smalling (52) and Nani (58) levelled things up.

With a penalty shootout looming, and deep into injury-time, Nani (90) raced clear to score a dramatic winner.

Brilliant game of football from ourselves. Typical City went out to defend and try to snatch a goal and then defend some more and nearly got away with it. 1st half we were Arsenal, great play and lovely football but no end product. 2nd half we were Barca, great play, lovely football and as deadly as you like. The scoreline flatters Man City, they were poor and very lucky to grab 1 goal let alone 2. Only preseason I know but there's so many positives to take from this, especially concerning the midfield area. Barca taught us a footballing lesson, a lesson we've finally took on board and whilst it was painful to lose the Champions League final to see the team play like this, it was worth it. More of the same lads and Number 20 will be on its way.

Always with the late goals hey? Lucky gits! Not that lucky as City's tactics in the second half opened them up for the pace destruction while United's quick passing was remarkable. Very entertaining game as a neutral. You're definitely the team to beat this season, but the Blues will be chasing. Certainly whet my appetite for next season, FOOTBALL'S BACK!

Just trying to use the two sides as the contrast of our performances during both halves. That said, one would be forgiven for making that mistake for our 2nd goal. As for howlers, what happened to Kompany? ;) Well played .... sort of :P

TF7, i know what you're trying to say in contrast but Barca in the second half is not comparable! For us to even come close to Barca will require Sneijder and a couple of more signings! We were given a lesson in football by Barca and we are well capable of winning the premier league this season but i feel we are a long way away from even coming close to one of the greatest teams the game has ever produced! Blue Dub, i don't think it was that much of a howler from De Gea btw. Stoppable yes, but a howler???

De Gea will come good - will take him maybe 3 or 4 games to get it together - Im disappointed in Rio and Vidic though - I thought they could have supported him adapting - but hey ho we won - and it was a cracker of a game....
