Ronaldo the showman blows away Fulham

Sometimes in football you do not always get what you deserve, today at Craven Cottage that happened on and off the pitch, on it United were poor throughout and clearly this was due to the midweek game against Lille, to put it bluntly the Reds looked a bit knackered.

The home side had the better of the chances in both halves, McBride had deservedly given Chris Coleman's side a first half lead, but Ryan Giggs put United on level terms before the break with a well taken goal after being put through by Rooney.

The second half story was the same as the first with Fulham creating several great chances, the pick of which fell to Radzinski whose header crashed against the bar, when it looked easier to score, if anyone was going to win this game it looked like it could only be Fulham.

Then with the game deep into the dying minutes, Cristiano Ronaldo collected the ball in his own half, he raced down the left wing beating two Fulham players who dived in, but the flying winger was too quick for both of them, Ronaldo cut inside the penalty area and hammered his low shot into the corner of the net, but it was aided by a slight deflection, that was the story of the day.

Reds fans were clearly delighted having forked a scandalous £45 to be there, so it was rough justice for United fans today and perhaps for Fulham too.

This result was 'massive' in the big scheme of things and that was evident as Fergie danced on the pitch with the United players and his back room team at the end of this absorbing game.
