4-1 is what the score board read at Old Trafford at the end of 90 minutes in Manchester United’s first game after the massive disappointment of the very early exit from the Champions League. Pre- game, I had called this match to be close as Wolverhampton Wanderers have run us close in our three encounters last season and even managed to beat us at Molinuex in the Premier League. It was close this season too but as the scoreline suggests it wasn’t too close and we could have scored more and win by a bigger margin.
Question – Are you sick and tired of hearing what an absolute genius or how utterly useless Dimitar Berbatov is? Those are the two extremes of the many opinions people seem to have of Manchester United’s £31m Bulgarian and it has become quite a boring saga for most of us. Minds have been firmly made up with United fans having plenty to say but what about the people who know Berba better than anyone else, what are the opinions of his team mates?
Manchester United came through a difficult encounter away in Wolves taking the all important three points courtesy of a Paul Scholes goal in the 73rd minute.
Despite the tight result, Manchester United controlled the game for large periods. Although the opening break was from Wolves, which resulted in Doyle placing the ball wide of the goal, Manchester United had plenty opportunities.
