I have been hoping and praying for United to finally start sending some decent long balls out of the back and stop waiting for (days) the defense to get set before sending in crosses. We had begun to get so congested in the middle of the field (less so recently) playing this annoying tap, tap, tap stuff that defenses seem to love. Then along comes Burch and he is the answer to my prayers. His curling long balls were deadly. I love that fact that he looks long before looking short, much like that gimpy guy who sits on the bench over in LA. In my opinion, he was the man of the match last night (if not Olsen). I'm suddenly very excited about the prospects of this team. A few weeks ago, I was annoyed with them. What a turnaround!
