ManUtd Back in Business
Being an ardent fan of ManUtd, I came across a recent article in the papers after their CL win. Heaven help their rivals...thats nice to hear eh.....Heaven help Arsenal!
Dynamo Kyiv 2 Manchester United 4
If this is what Manchester United can achieve with a makeshift side following a glut of injuries, heaven help their Champions League rivals when Sir Alex Ferguson's men are at full strength. Without midfield trio Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Owen Hargreaves, defensive duo Patrice Evra and Gary Neville, plus striker Louis Saha, United dismantled Kiev with ruthless efficiency in the Ukraine to advance to the brink of the last 16. Victory made it three out of three in Europe this season following earlier wins against Sporting Lisbon and Roma. But more importantly, it showed the strength in depth of United's squad. Admittedly, Kiev provided little resistance, but the Reds' attacking play throughout was superb.
