RedRants has teamed up with Multimedia Designer, Muadh Kalbani to produce what will hopefully become a regular feature.
The idea is simple. Create an enduring image that typifies each game using one single image and a dab of photoshop. Hopefully there’ll be some brilliantly poignant images created over the season that you, and many others feel compelled to adopt as your desktop wallpaper. You can find the page…..
Blackburn produced arguably the shock of the season so far by defeating Manchester United 3-2 at Old Trafford in an unexpected set back for the champions.
A Dimitar Berbatov brace wasn’t enough to rescue United as goals from Yakubu and Grant Hanley sealed a famous victory for under pressure manager Steve Kean.
Dimitar Berbatov delivered a late Christmas present to United fans, scoring three in a 5-0 demolition of 10-men Wigan, to send Ferguson’s team joint top with Manchester City, albeit behind on goal difference.
Park Ji Sung and Antonio Valencia also got on the scoresheet, as Wigan were furious with referee Phil Dowd, whose decision to send off Conor Sammon virtually sealed Roberto Martinez’ men destiny.
Manchester United got the perfect Christmas send off as they brushed Fulham aside after a superb first half performance.
United got off to a flyer against QPR on Sunday, and things weren’t much different in their second visit to West London in four days.
With five minutes played, Nani was allowed to run down the left wing unchallenged and pull the ball back for Welbeck, setting up a simple finish for the youngster.
Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick got on the score sheet as Manchester United delivered a great performance to seal a comfortable 2-0 win at QPR.
United were superior in every department and could have easily had five or six, such was the gulf in quality between Fergie’s men and the West London outfit.
Aiming to continue his team’s fine form away from home – 5 wins and 2 draws up to today – Ferguson fielded an attacking-minded 11 with an unchanged back four, Welbeck and Rooney up-front and Valencia and Nani out wide. Jones was, again, chosen alongside Carrick as defensive midfielder and the youngster produced yet another brilliant performance, further sign of his quality and development.
Wayne Rooney. Liverpool born, but playing for Manchester United. The talisman for his country, but also one of the most hated. A man who will get banned for swearing into a camera, but also a man that organizations will be willing to go through all obstacles for to let him play just one game. Wayne Rooney is a Manchester United player, and all the things above make him that. Everyone have their own opinion of him, from being a money-chasing ego with the first touch of a elephant, to being a gift from the footballing Gods, rescuing his team at every opportunity given to him. Call him what you want, but with 160 goals for United, countless of them crucial, he has written his name into the history books of Manchester United. Calling him a legend may be taking it too far, but he is not far from reaching that summit either.
Manchester United put the demons of the terrible disappointment of being knocked out in the Champions League to rest by crushing Wolves 4-1 at Old Trafford.
