'Own Goal had a forgettable game'

MILAN - It may have been a good result for Manchester United, but for one player it was a game to forget.

Own Goal, United's ten-goal sensation, second top-scorer at the club behind Wayne '25-star' Rooney, did not manage to increase his goal tally in the first leg of United's round-of-16 match with AC Milan. With United having had 14 shots (4 on target), the 'Silent Predator' was unlucky not to be able to claim United's equalizer, which was credited to Paul Scholes instead.

"I thought he did score, but upon seeing the replays it was clear it was just a deflection, thus rightfully credited to Scholes" said Man Utd manager Sir Alex Ferguson, "He will have to take his chances in the return leg if he is to keep his momentum in tandem with Wayne (Rooney)."

The media reported that starter Own Goal, who looked like he was missing in the entire second half, may not have himself entirely to blame for his no-show. "Lack of attacking play may have been a glaring factor in why Own Goal wasn't able to get a clear chance on goal" said Martin Nee, sports journalist at The Moon. "It was down to how United lined-up their formation. Also, Milan's defenders were able to do their jobs relatively well, but then again they let in three goals so I don't sound too credible now."

It has been rumoured that United have received offers from clubs for the player following his impressive performances this past month and a half. Sir Alex may have to make a decision on his player, who was previously low-profile, come end of the season.

At press time, there have been sources saying that Own Goal will be on the bench at United's away game to Everton this weekend and likely to be used as an impact player.

I rate Own Goal's spectecular goal against Arsenal (United's first in that match)as his best this season...sublime and yet potent...true hallmark of a good finisher...

Speaking of the bench, MO hidup lagi?

Jeevs said...

MO was complaining about the dugouts at San Siro, apparently he could only see at as high as ankle level and missed both of Rooney's goals as they happened above (his) eye level...

Kop Trollop said...

How come Roo the Poo can see then? they are both the same height what.

Jeevs said...

Roo could see them cos he wasn't on the bench, thus he had an elevated view...plus Roo wears the new Nike "Lambung", while MO still uses those regular Umbro ones..
