Discussion in 'Manchester United' started by Motterman, Aug 27, 2002.
Early word from the Beeb:
O'Shea on the bench.
Rio to start!
4-5-1 with Ruud alone up front. Rio and Blanc in central defense.

Now the announcers are saying that Scholes is up front with Ruud.
Ruud scores!!!!!! It's 1-1 aggregate!!!!!
Scholes put a through ball in to Ruud, who put it in the back of the net!
David Beckham!!!! 2-0!!!!
There's only ONE David Beckham!!!!!
i think i'm having a heart attack....this rules. i dont care what team it's against, i always enjoy a route....
we love you beckham, we do...
United pouring it on! Giggs with a great shot, but a great save by the keeper.
veron seems to be doing pretty well...WAIT GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL
And we're still only 21 minutes in.
United fans are chanting "Are you City in disguise?"
Giggs almost made it 4-0 - he was alone in front of the keeper. Nice save by Ilic, but Giggs should have done better.
30 minutes gone now.
Keane heads just wide.
HT, 3-0 United. 3-1 aggregate.
I'll take another two goals please.
Hopefully Forlan gets in the game and can get on the sheet.
It's the ideal game for Forlan to get his first. United have a 2 goal lead and they are controlling play. No pressure on Diego today.
Rio's playing very well in his first game back.
