Five minutes before United opened the scoring today, Dimitar Berbatov missed an absolute sitter. Gary Neville burst in to the box and played in a perfect ball to the Bulgarian, with half the ground on their feet in celebration, only for Berb to fire wide. It was an absolutely dreadful miss.


Fortunately for Berbatov, he made amends in the second half when creating and scoring a chance for himself, which was far more difficult the opportunity he messed up.

In regards to Rio, I think it’s great to see we have players in the team who react likes fans, even when they’re not even in the match day squad.
