Damn! Last Sun, I had to watch the horror of Man Utd ending the game at Old Trafford with a goal -less draw against Reading. Well, the horror did not end - AGAIN, we drew with Portsmouth (Fratton Park) early yesterday morning. The lads played well - created a lot of chances, but there was no finishing. The injury of Rooney on Sun and the last minute red card Ronaldo got for the foul, showed how greatly these 2 superstars were missed. We had Tevez up front, but we still lacked the pace of Ronaldo and the strength of Rooney. The docs at Old Trafford have given Rooney 2 months to recover, I do hope and pray he recovers sooner.
We will be without Ronaldo for the next 2 matches, but I guess, the young lads have an opportunity to shine now. The likes of Eagles, Fletcher & Pique - the boys now have a chance to show what they are made of. Anyway, we have to look forward. 2 consecutive draws - doesn't bother me, what happens after this is a concern. I have seen how the Red Devils pick themselves up and come back with a bang. I can't wait to see it happen again. The year the Red Devils won the treble 1999 - well, we drew the first 2 games. So let this not be a situation which dampens our spirits. Man Utd will pick up! We have an entire season of 36 more games to go (in the Premier League). We can do it!
Glory Glory Man Utd!
