Nobody watching the match?
We are leading 2 - 0.
Anderson with a super freekick and debut boy, Valencia wearing No.25.
he has never scored from open play, if that's what you people mean.
Anderson only scored in penalties, esp those impt cup winning ones. But open play, he hasn't break the duck....till now. Unless dun count dead ball situations and friendlies.
No matter... let the floodgates open for him now! Personal I feel it's time for him and Nani to really shine this season.
Bayern Munich 0 United 0
Lost in PK shootout!
The first six penalties were all of an extremely high standard, before two poor efforts from Patrice Evra and Danijel Pranjic were comfortably saved. The goals continued into sudden death, where Evans saw his kick well saved and van Buyten sealed the silveware for the hosts.
Wah Sir Bobby Robson passed away. Sad news, always admired him. Excellent manager, Mourinho is lucky to be his apprentice.
R.I.P SIR Bobby Robson.
Boss plans tactics change.
“The team has adapted well to whatever system we've played, whether it’s 4-4-2 or three in midfield," he says. “We’ve got that flexibility in the squad. With Antonio Valencia coming in, it might be a bit more of a rigid 4-4-2 system, but we’ll have to see.”
The gaffer has emphasised the need for United to collectively step up to the goalscoring plate this season as well. The boss has set some demanding team and individual goal targets, challenging his men to reach the magic three figures.
Target to hit 100 goals this season!
SAF target for the team as follows:
"Wayne’s capable of scoring 18 or more, and if Michael plays 25 games for me next season, I think he’ll get 15 goals.”
“Going back a few years, we could always guarantee goals from Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham, who always pitched in with about 10 a season. Those goals from midfield have dried up a little in recent years, so we have to address that,” he said.
“I’ll be looking to Park, Nani, Valencia – even Welbeck and Macheda – to contribute 40 goals between them. The defenders will contribute a few from set-pieces too.”
Think recently we have quite low supply from the midfield! If he got correctly we should be on the way to our 4th title in a row!
