Manchester United 3 – 0 Southampton

Today’s silly bets were:

  • Gabriel Heinze to score first. £2 at 28/1.
  • Paul Scholes to score first and United to win 3-1. £6 at 45/1.

A very poor Southampton side came to Old Trafford looking for a draw. United applied constant pressure throught the first half but couldn’t make the breakthrough. 🙄

Scholes broke the deadlock early in the second half with a scrappy header. Rooney, who had an excellent game, fired in the second. Ronaldo, having missed a few easy chances, netted the third. 😆

Five minutes to play and the bet was still on! I silently urged Southampton to break forward and grab a consolation, but it wasn’t to be. 😕

A good all-round performance today but no real ground was made in the league as Chelsea and Arsenal both won their own games comfortably.:neutral:
