Sir Alex Ferguson: Tactics justified
It was a cruncher, damn it! Damn, it was a cruncher! The victory over the Catalans was purely from the counter-attacking tactics that Man Utd deployed in kicking the 2006 Champions out of the competition all together.
Yeah baby: MANCHESTER UNITED 1 - BARCELONA 0
It was an awesome game. I somehow missed almost the entire game as I was really tired. The night before was a big night for me too. Vessel of Worship (VW hereafter) took part in the Talent @ The Attic competition. We were victorious as well. We were the winners of the heat and we've qualified for the semi-finals on the 17th of June 2008 (Tue).
Going back to the game, Man Utd were always criticised for playing defensive football. This was a clear showing especially at the Nou Camp when we played away against the Catalans. But in Old Trafford it was different. Although we played some what defensively, the counter attacking tactics were priceless. We have a complete squad right now. With the valuable experience of the old timers and of course the speed and agility of the young guns. We have proven to the entire football world that we are a force to be reckoned with. People should not take us lightly. We are the finalist of the UEFA Champions League. We are also on course to be the Premiership champions for th 12th freakin' time. So people....REALISE!
Glory Glory Man Utd!
