Manchester United 2 – 1 Liverpool

Excellent atmosphere, great performance. Carroll replaced Howard in goal, Rio did well on his return to action. Brown looked good at right back. Keane was outstanding but O’Shea as a fifth midfielder didn’t really work. Ronaldo tore them apart all night – thank god we got him instead of Kewell, who was shite.

United dominated the first half, missing numerous chances before Mickey got his odd-shaped bonce on a Giggs free kick. Gerard went off with a suspected broken foot, shame that. 😉

Comedy defending, ending with a John O’Shea own goal, allowed the Dippers to draw level against the run of play. A second header from Mickey after the break sealed the win.

A very encouraging display after a few bad games. Only 7 points behind now. 🙄
