Nani got the assist for the first goal and scored the first. Nani is by far the most creative player on MU at the moment. I don't understand why there were too many off-sides committed by Berbatov and Hernandez. Berbatov needs to work with other MU players on quick one touch passes in and around the box because when he gets the ball and dribbles, he is not able to get past by the defenders and ends up creating delays where the opposing defenders have ample to time get back in position.
Nani is an exasperating player. Good one minute - bad the next. When will he learn he can't take a free kick?
The older ones amongst us might remember Al Read and his sketch about a football player called Cunliffe (I think). Al Read was slating Cunliffe for being useless - couldn't pass, couldn't tackle, couldn't shoot, couldn't do anything - then Cunliffe scores a wonder goal and Al Read turns to his mate and says 'I told you he was a wonderful player'.

Nani can still frustrate, but he's a lot more consistent these days, and is a great attacking influence to have in the side. He's having a good season, and you could see the difference having him back in the team.
I agree about him taking the free kicks though. Its rare to see him even test the keeper. It's not just Nani though, it's one thing we seem to generally lack, a good free kick taker. I don't know why Rooney doesn't take more.
