ManUtd 5 - 2 CONCORD

54051 fans braved the pouring rain at Old Trafford. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Gentlemen prefer blondes and ManUtd prefers a 2-5-3. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Johansson - Barabanov, Râlea - Lovach, Chadikoski, Idrizi, Steigerwald, Nyland - Waszczuk, Boesze, Fredriksson.

Our studio analysts were correct. CONCORD has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Halay - van den Brakel, Sérot, Ambrogetti - Proevski, Dias Graça, Bresliev, Fernández Folguera, Mulder - Trajanov, Amador.

The guests took the lead 19 minutes into the match, after a right-side attack resulted in T. Trajanov scoring to make it 0 - 1. With 26 minutes played, CONCORD's D. Ambrogetti received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. A series of fine plays up the middle should have led to a goal for ManUtd, but D. Steigerwald's shot went over the bar. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 30 minutes on the clock after F. Waszczuk's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the ManUtd player a yellow card though. ManUtd put pressure on the visitors' central defense with 32 minutes played, but D. Boesze couldn't find an opening. S. Nyland seemed to be defying gravity as he elegantly headed in a goal for ManUtd after a corner kick that was nicely executed by L. Fredriksson. That makes it 1 - 1. Halftime score was 1 - 1. ManUtd did a good job holding on to the ball, with 59 percent of possession.

L. Fredriksson might as well have been wearing Pilgrim shoes for all the traction he could get on the waterlogged field - his trademark technique was nowhere in sight today. ManUtd took the lead 58 minutes in, after F. Waszczuk's awkward, but ultimately successful, shot from the right. 2 - 1. After 59 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by D. Boesze might have resulted in another goal for ManUtd. However, A. Halay made a spectacular save. Content with how the game was proceeding, the ManUtd coach let J. Meckelfeld come on for D. Boesze after 60 minutes. The visitors didn't give in and, after 60 minutes, T. Mulder got through the home side's central line of defense, rolling in the leveling goal to make it 2 - 2. L. Fredriksson's name was chanted throughout the stadium after his goal in minute 61 following a run up the middle gave ManUtd the 3 - 2 lead. The referee showed ManUtd's L. Fredriksson the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in ManUtd's D. Steigerwald bringing the lead up to 4 - 2. D. Steigerwald gave ManUtd supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 5 - 2 after 75 minutes, following a good exchange of passes on the right that the away team failed to deal with. L. Chadikoski should probably have put his team up another goal after 76 minutes, but some great goalkeeping by A. Halay kept the visitors in the game. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that ManUtd had 62...62 percent possession. AH AH AH!

ManUtd's top performer was clearly L. Fredriksson. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because J. Johansson seemed to stumble all over the pitch. R. Amador performed admirably for CONCORD. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by T. Mulder today. The match ends 5 - 2.
