What’s New?

Posted by unitedfanatic on February 24, 2010

Its been a wonderful past few weeks for Manchester United and a dream come true for millions of fans around the world to witness Wayne Rooney in sizzling form finally this season. Not that he wasn’t great for us till now. But he is truly showing how much damage he is capable of doing and that’s a very bright thing!

Starting this month, Wazza Said So will now sport a new feature on the blog called “Pick of the Month” on the left sidebar under which, every month, we shall nominate a Player of the month. Clicking this image will redirect you to our Polls page on which you can then vote if you agree or disagree with our views.

We start with nominating Wayne Rooney for the Player of the month for January. Scoring 7 goals in 4 games, he dazzled the footballing fraternity with a 4 goal thriller against Hull City as well as moved his all time United goals tally in the Premier League to 83, 1 shy of Ronaldo’s 84 for United in the Premier League.

Dominant United ease past Blackburn

Man Utd           2-0 Blackburn Rovers

Man Utd: Berbatov (55), Rooney (87)

After a disappointing defeat at Anfield, United were back in business with a 2-0 win over hapless Blackburn. Blackburn went with a packed midfield and it took United to settle on the ball and create chances. United came closest in the first half when Valencia’s cross was headed into the ground by Berbatov only to be saved comfortably by Paul Robinson. United had a goal disallowed when Rooney was caught offside when he setup Berbatov to open the flood gates. United had to go into the match with a makeshift defence as Vidic and Ferdinand were both ruled out due to injury. But Brown and Evans were rarely pressed into action as Blackburn had very little flair going forward.

United upped the ante in the second half and it finally paid dividends when Evra dragged the ball fiercely into penalty box towards Berbatov who controlled it well and smashed the ball on the turn to score a superb goal. It was Berbatov’s 4th goal of the season and a much needed goal to break the shackles. Gabriel Obertan made his BPL debut for United when he came on for a disappointing Nani. The 20 year old looked promising but it was clear that he was nervous and over awed by the occassion. He had a chance to score on his debut when he missed the target from six yards. Late on, Anderson’s superb cross into the box was met by Rooney, who guided the ball superbly into goal to give United an unassailable lead. Michael Owen came on for Berbatov for the last 15 minutes and he had a chance to score a goal in stoppage time but his shot went just wide of the goal. Blackburn were themselves disallowed a goal due to offside when Kalinic finished the rebound from Benny McCarthy’ s shot but replays showed that Kalinic  was onside. But it would have made little difference as United were back to winning ways on a day when 9-man Liverpool lost at Fulham.
