    magnificent skill

  2. Giles Oakley says:

    What pace, energy and drive down the wing, everything we used to take for granted with Oh Oh Antonio, but which had somehow gone missing this year. Usually I dread international weeks for fear of the inevitable injuries and exhaustion United players always seem to end up with, but maybe for Valencia it’ll be a re-birth. If he can re-discover his confidence and acceleration it’ll be worth the long flights. He’s such a good player at his best I still have faith he’ll eventually come good again, and this assist for Ecuador could be the start, just in time for the Double run-in.

    Valencia was MOTM in that game and well looked to have gotten it all back. Look at that long legged all out runs.

    But he had 2 other great assists in this game. See them all here!

    Just hope he shakes his early season form and starts running at defenders like this.
    We really need some of this in the run in.

    To be fair though, this was a 5-0 home win v a woeful San Salvador

  4. Andromeda says:

    This can be an incentive for him to reignite his season!!!Very pleased for the lad.

  5. FletchTHEMAN says:

    So funny to listen to the announcers! After the 3rd goal he waxes philosophical over Tony V

    Our Antonio: A poet with a football. :lol:

    Love it!

  6. FletchTHEMAN says:

    5 United players start for England

    England v San Marino Starting XI:

    Keeper: Hart;
    Def: Walker Smalling Lescott Baines;
    MF: Oxlade-Chamberlain Lampard Cleverley Young
    F: Rooney and Defoe

  7. King Eric says:

    So no Carrick tonight, what a piss take. THE inform player at the minute but no lets stick with Frank. Anyway who gives a fuck about Ingerlund.

  8. parryheid says:

    Makes the world of difference when you have front men actually in position for what will be coming as we used to have and Valencia doesnt have to fanny about with the ball waiting on them arriving.

  9. JC says:

    Well to be fair perry one, it was El Salvador, about like United playing a blue square team and two, the defenders he was playing against obviously hadn’t been coached to over play his right foot nor double him with a man on his right and another playing him straight up. He’s always going to beat someone to the line on his right if they give him that space even in the Prem, they just don’t anymore thus he is completely ineffective.

  10. Denton Davey says:

    King Eric @ 17:04: “no Carrick tonight, what a piss take.”

    No DannyTheLad, either – BUT, like the idiot that I am, I’ll watch and cringe !

  11. parryheid says:


    yeah it wasEl Salvador sort of the equivelant of United playing the likes of Reading and they had obviously been coached that if you double/triple a dangerous winger and his team have finishers in the area of the pich they should be in, you leave big gaping holes for those finishers to exploit.+ it really isn’t cricket not to meander infield and play your famous left foot tricks doncha think.

  12. mill says:

    Cant remember the last time Valencia beat two men down the wing and got a cross in for United.

  13. samuel - united WE stand says:

    “El salvado are the likes of reading” regardless of their relegation fight, they are a premiership team. parry is on a roll with his classics.

  14. James says:

    Resting carrick for the Montenegro game

  15. parryheid says:

    Fanbois starting to worry their man will inevitably get sidelined Again eh. Another classic from Parry lovin it.

  16. samuel - united WE stand says:

    “Fan bois” you don’t help yourself at all, do you? seriously. That’s poor from you, certainly not your classics, your standards are slipping parry

  17. samuel - united WE stand says:

    El salvador are like reading (a premier league team).. Now that’s your standard classic parry.

  18. parryheid says:

    samuel-united We stand.
    You are being Obtuse,but naturally not deliberate. So I will explain it to you,in International footballing terms El Salvador are cannon fodder for superior International teams.Ditto Reading in the Premier league for superior teams.Clear to you now?

  19. Jay says:

    Hi Scott any chance of you putting up Hernandez and Robin van Persie’s goals for their countries. Javier has now scored 30 goals in 45 games for Mexico

  20. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Parry – reading have quality players in their team but maybe not enough, they still stand more chance of surviving more so than el salvador, i don’t see the comparison as every team in the premier is capable of beating anyone, i suppose i get what you’re trying to imply but the similarity is non-existent.

  21. belfast red. says:

    You would love to hear G.Nev celebrating a goal like that on sky! ;)
