Football 10/11: vs Chelsea (CPL 1/4 Finals, Away)

Quite a game, and not a result I expected. It is so difficult to get any kind of result away to Chelsea, let alone a win. A win with a clean sheet as well. It was an excellent all-round performance, … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Chelsea

Football 10/11: vs Chelsea (Community Shield)

Good opening performance. I had concerns about United’s form heading into, this, the first competitive fixture of the season. But a lot of good performances. Fabio and Vidic were solid. Scholes bossed the midfield while Nani and Valencia were a constant threat on the … Continue reading
