with 10 minutes to go Berbatov had a free header, 7 yards from goal. He should have scored easily, or at the very least put the ball on target. That would have given Utd the boost to get another in the time that remained....instead he headed it over the bar like an amatuer in the Kintyre League.....Andy Robertson would have put that in at the pavillion end at Kintyre Park.

Very very poor from the £30m man. And Horse called Juan Face is right. Ronaldo did not contribute either.
None of the Utd team played well. I always thought Park and Anderson (the two men with good Scottish names!) were slight weak links.

Disappointing for Utd but, as in ALL football, it is now past and it does not really matter which team won.

:oops: Point taken. I will keep out of football threads from now on . . . until my hero is up for more silver, that is.

To me that's the prime example of why he's not the best player in the world, because when United are losing he goes into hiding. It rarely happens so no one really notices. In the Tottenham game, it was Tevez who changed the game, but again he was posted missing yesterday too. Someone like Gerrard would've been in about Barca last night, and that's why he's a better player than Ronaldo, tough I'm no fan of him either. Iniesta is the best player in the world for me and Xavi is a close second.

Stricktly speaking they won it in 78/79 and retained it 79/80 though I wouldn't make to much of the provincial thing, they were the biggest spending club in the country at the time Cloughie was the first manager to spend £1million on a player when he bought Trevor Francis in 1979.

Strictly speaking Clough paid £999,999 for Francis. :D

If we're being that strict Clough didn't pay a penny but 'Nothingham Florist' paid about £1.1million including taxes :lol:
