22 April 2009 : Portsmouth (Home) - BPL [Post-Match]
2-0. Very good result for us. Now we are 3 points closer to 18th championship title. Credits to Portsmouth that they kept fighting until the end. But after 82 minutes trying to seal the game, came Carrick low drive shot to secure the full points.
For me, at this final stage of season, experience is the best recipe for success. Thanks Giggsy for the crossing he made for the first goal; and thanks to Scholesy for the thru pass for the second goal. We really need that kind of play.
Don't be relaxed with this win guys. We have to be even more cautious. Looking from outside, we are winning title again; we got those 3 points; we led the table with 3 points; we won with 2 goals margin. But, we have to look deeper than that. There are still 18 points to be fought; we are 3 goals lesser compared to Liverpool's goal difference; we still have to play Boro away from home and welcome Man City and Arsenal at home! All of this will determine our position come end of May.
In the end, I really enjoy this season as many ups and downs for us. Hoping final day it will an 'up' for us!
Line-up : Van der Sar, Gary (O'Shea (Rafael)), Vidic, Evans, Evra, Ronaldo, Fletcher, Anderson (Carrick), Scholes, Giggs, Rooney - 7 out of 11 correct! hehe
Final score : 2-0 United
