Do you watch last night match? We got our first cup when United beat Shanghai Shenhua 1-0 to lift the Chevrolet China Cup.
Good result but it is actually a boring match considering Shanghai Senghua park their bus in front of their goal post throughout the match. Maybe they just got influenced from another Blues in CL matches.
However, some interesting performances during the match make us all got excited.
First, the performance of Shinji Kagawa! No argument..he is world class quality. His passing was amazing. We could get plenty of goal next season with Rooney up front if he could maintain his wonderful touch. It is really good to see Kagawa got his first goal for United and he really deserve it after a very fine performance that makes him voted as Man of the Match.
This is what our manager comments on Kagawa;
“I thought he was terrific. He was involved in everything, all our interplay, all our possession, he was involved in most of it.”
“Kagawa has settled in really well, he’s going to be a really good player for us and I was really impressed with him tonight.”
2nd, the one we called A £7 million flop, Bebe. After he saves us a blush in a friendly match in South Africa, he makes us wonder and confuse.. Is this really Bebe that we know 2 year ago?? He looks totally a different player.
He changed the tempo, speed and attacking threat when he comes in at the break. Bebe on two occasions drew decent saves from the keeper before turning provider for Kagawa to net. After streaking past his man, Bebe showed great awareness to pick out Kagawa who fired home with the aid of a deflection.
Not only that, he also almost capped a fine 45-minute cameo with an audacious drive from some 40 yards that forced a fine diving save from the keeper.
Almost all United fan completely ruled out the possibility of him ever putting on a United shirt for a significant game again and had written him off as one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s greatest flops . I hope he will continue to progress and prove everybody is wrong! He is only 22 and still have a lot of time to improve!
Sir Alex on Bebe;
“It was good work by Bebe too, who set it up for him. I think Bebe did really well when he came on.”
