The first shot on target for Manure became a goal. On the 24th min,our defence got spilt apart by Nani’s pass towards Rooney. Nelsen’s full stretch clearance gave Rooney the start chance to send it home.
Manure 1-0 Rovers
Lovely through ball from Ooijer in the 32th min. Santa Cruz gets the ball pass the keeper and slots it calmly into an open net. Super star composure. Our first shot on target becomes a goal.
Manure 1-1 Rovers
Evans had a goal disallowed in the 46th min for what I believe is a slight push.
We ended the first half with 1 shot on target giving Manure 2 shots on target.
Andrews hit a header straight to the keeper on the 52th min.
The resident diver got a yellow card for diving for a penalty on the 56th min.
Nelsen hit the upright in the 58th min. Diouf gave the rebound straight to the keeper. What does the skipper need to do to score???
Andrews got a yellow card in the 59th min for a really retarded foul on the edge of the box.
The diver then scored from the free-kick. Robinson had no chance.
Manure 2-1 Rovers
Berbatov got booked for a high tackle in the 62th min.
Givet fouled Tevez on the 67th min.
First Rover substitue came in the 73th min. Tugay on for Dunn.
Second Rover substitute came in the 78th min. McCarthy on for Grella.
Third Rover substitute came in the 83th min. Treacy on for Diouf
We ended the second half really badly.
Paul Robinson – 6
Didn’t do anything important. Totally no chance for both goals.
Ryan Nelsen – 5
Made a mistake and never looked like coming back.
Gael Givet – 6
Seems like a good loan. Definetly looking forward to seeing him in the future
Stephan Warnock – 5
Seemed invisible for most of the game. All his crosses were misplaced.
Andre Ooijer – 6.5
Good assist for the goal. Did okay against Nani
Keith Andrews – 5
Did absolutely nothing other than giving away a stupid free kick.
Vince Grella – 6
Did his job as the holding midfielder.
David Dunn – 6
He really needs more time on the ball to show his creativity.
El Hadji Diouf – 6
A good starting debut. Should’ve killed it off instead of putting it straight to the keeper.
Morten Gamst Pedersen – 5
Utterly disappointing performance from the Norwegian.
Roque Santa Cruz – 7
Good goal from him.
Tugay – 5
I do not understand why he’s even playing. Came on and did nothing in particular. He doesn’t look as if he has the legs anymore.
Benni McCarthy – 6
Should’ve been brought on alot earlier
Contributed nothing in particular.
This isn’t a big lost. But Sammy has to learn to put the correct players into the squad. Where was Roberts??? Villanueva wasn’t even on the bench???? The substitutions were a tad too late. I’m quite frustrated to be honest. The next game would be a challenge. We need to start picking up points. Go Rovers!!!!!
