Re: Manchester United 8 - 2 Arsenal WOW!
Damn, I was about to make the thread. Woot, give me a sec, I'll edit this post.
Hurray for Manchester United!
EDIT: Well, most video are blocked by YT for now due to the topic being hot. I'll post some in some time.
Okay, break-downed analysis. Can't really go too much into wasted opportunities when we got 10 goals in a match. (NOTE: If you count it by region-wise, it's Manchester 13 - 3 London :D)
Well, after good presence and domination, Welbeck opened the score.
Then, after a fantastic dive by Walcott - which bluffed Webb and made the likes of Alves, Busquets, Di maria looks like football saints - Arsenal got a penalty.
Result: A half-baked penalty by Van Persie and a crucial save by De Gea which atleast has the merits to silence all critics.
This awaken the beast mode in ManU and the first to express himself was Young with a wonderful shot that curled into the goal of Sczeny.
Then came the bad news for the omnipresent-till-now Welbeck that on a run seemed to sustain a sudden hamstring injury. Substituted immediate by Chicharito.
Arsenal will try some mere tries and possessions before Rooney curled a magnificent free-kick. Rooney show began officially in the match though it was thumped before half-time a bit by Walcott's goal.
Second-half and many opportunities for United. 1 missed due to power and lucidity by Cleverley and an unexplainable miss by Nani who clearly had to put the ball inside literally as he was so close near the post. Seeing the wastage of his passes and the disillusionary finish, Rooney showed the path by re-opening his manual of "How to put Goals" with another superb free-kick.
United's rampage was evident and 3 minutes later, Rooney made a fantastic assist to Nani that he better not miss this miss after the glares of Rooney towards him earlier. The Portuguese did that fantastically with a mix of faint-lob and made the score 5-1 (if I'm still counting right :p). He was substituted immediately after along with Anderson (Giggs and Park J.S IN)
Rooney continues his way with a wonderful chip (that clearly deserved to be in for the beauty of the skill) that ends on the post-bar but the action continued and then came an assist by Young to Park which coolly made it to 6-1.
Van Persie will make it to 6-2 after a bit confusion following Jones' "clearance".
But Sir Rooney is still here. A wonderful long pass to Hernandez and he's stopped with a foul by Jenkinson and thus red-carded. His free-kick nearly finished into the goal net but nevertheless, after Evra gain a penalty for United, Rooney clearly get what he wanted - a hattrick! (which the commentator pointed out that it was some record scoring for Rooney and United or whatever cause' I did not follow it)
Ashley Young at 90' will make it to 8-2 for Manchester United following an assist by the man who tears Arsenal apart since 1992 - Ryan Giggs. This makes it for 2 goals, 1 assist and 2 successful free-kicks caused by Young btw.
Epic and fashionable win for ManU over Arsenal so. Didn't wanted it to painfully hurt that much for Arsenal (whose 3 major departures clearly as I said earlier on hurt too much). I must admit that after 6-2, I wanted ManU to net 2 more so that they can pass forward to by Goal Average. On the ranking, it's ManU ahead (9 Pts) over City ( 9 Pts ) and Liverpool and Chelsea (7 Pts each). Which could end like that possibly at the end of the season.
