Manchester United Message Board
we were unbelievably average in the first half. although we did pick up in the second period
the two goals made all the difference
well done gibson who's by far the man of the match deservedly.
we didnt play well overall and i'm still not convinced about this team,
even sir alex agreed in his post-match interview that we were very fortunate in the first half
we will have to do better in the semis to have any realistic chance of progressing further in this competition.
If the need is there, this team can, and will rise to the occasion. You can only beat what's in front of you, and this was a good Spurs side, so well done team for controlling the second half very professionally.
Spurs may have had a lot of possession in the first half but Tomas had only one save to make cause the defence were awesome - especially Vidic - and utd had yet to concede a Carling Cup goal. In the second half utd were by far the better team and by the end they thoroughly deserved their win.
