There was an explosion of joy at the final whistle at the Darwen End of Ewood Park. Manchester United fans have a reason to celebrate as they came away from Ewood Park with 3 points and in that process, extended their lead at the to
p of the Barclays Premier League to 5 points over nearest rival, Manchester City. The fact that the rival is City made the celebrations sweeter but the a word of caution, the league is not over yet so keep the celebrations in check.
Ewood Park is a tough place for United to go to. In our last 10 matches there, we have only won twice. Blackburn Rovers had also stunned us on New Year’s Eve with a 3-2 win at Old Trafford. The visitors were also in a good run which was halted last week by a Fabrice Muamba-inspired Bolton Wanderers. The hosts were fighting to stay up in the Premier League so the points mattered to them as much as it mattered to the Red Devils. Pre-kick off, anyone with a United inclination would be worried about the outcome of this match considering the record we have had at Ewood Park in recent past and because of the shock result against them this season which spoiled many New Year parties of United followers mine included.

Man United got what they want from their game against Otelul Galati, full three points, yesterday at Old Trafford. But we noticed some considerable points that need to be reviewed.
It seems Michael Owen, who Sir Alex Ferguson is waiting for the results of a scan on the thigh injury he picked yesterday, has no luck when starting a game with United unless it is in the League Cup. I hope it is not serious and he will feature soon. Although he has a good scoring ratio, I really can say it is Owen’s final season with Man United as Sir Alex Ferguson has a limit on waiting injury prone players (remember Dion Dublin, Jasper Blomqvist, Louis Saha and Owen Hargreaves!).

Well, well, Elland Road hasn’t changed. The Leeds team (a far cry from their financially irresponsible glory days) hasn’t changed. And neither has the press’ ability to deflect any discussion of a cakewalk of a game into moral outrage too. I’m talking about the “Istanbul” chants, but first a BRIEF summary of the game. Well, it was a fantastic first half display from United, merit badges handed out to Fryers, Valencia, Fabio, Prefect Owen and Head Boy Giggsy. Fryers looks confident, eager, yet composed, retained the ball well apart from a few 40 yard attempts at a “Hollywood Pass” (one which he completed by the way). But other than that a very comfortable first half display. 2nd half wasn’t quite as thrilling yet more an exercise in how to control and see out a victory in a hostile environment, culminating in a bizarre Berbatov/Carrick defensive partnership.

There appears to be a number of Manchester United fans who are already dismissing the transfer of Ashley Young from Aston Villa as an expensive waste of money. One even went as far as to publicly declare on a club forum that “Here we have another underwhelming signing” – is he? Not if you listen to the opinions of his new and former team mates. Even the now retired United great Denis Irwin has welcomed the addition of Young to Sir Alex Fergusons squad predicting that the England international will become a real success at Old Trafford.
