That game was HORRIBLE. I haven’t been so bored watching United since we last played that bloody team in yellow. It was to be expected I suppose. Our record in France is as bad as tonight’s game was, so no doubt Fergie got what he came for.
It’s a little frustrating because, without Gignac and Valbuena, you have to feel that Marseille were there for the taking. They should offer more in the second leg going forward, which should be of concern because they have a very effective (huge, African) back four.
I still think we’re favourites though. Fairly comfortable ones, but we all know about the damage that one away goal can go. We will need to be positive but balanced in the second leg.
I was relatively impressed by Gibson, but he wasn’t and never will be a fitting replacement for Paul Scholes. The gulf in class between the two was apparent when Scholsey came on for his cameo.
Nani has the beating of Heinze, who looked woefully short of pace going back. Odd, considering he was actually a fairly effective outlet going forward. I expect him to make mincemeat of the mincing Argie at Old Trafford.
Other than that, in terms of lessons learned, things to take, incident… beats me. There are probably some awesome goals from South America you can watch over at 101 Great Goals. Go there instead. Don’t waste any more time on Manchester United away to Marseille.
