Emotional night at Old Trafford

MUFC-Hull060514“Keep supporting us. Good times will be back again.” These were the last words of Ryan Giggs, trying to contain some tears, as he and the whole team bid farewell to Old Trafford for this season, leaving the fans to look forward for a more promising new season in a couple of months or so, more likely under the reign of Louis Van Gaal, with Giggs himself uncertain over his future, whether to be a manager at another team, or assistant to Van Gaal, or surprise, extend a run for another season as player, while on the other hand Vidic could smile as he made his own farewell to the fans, with him agreeing a deal with Inter Milan for next season. But the heroes of the night were 3 youngsters, James Wilson, 18, who netted a double on his debut with the Red Devils, Januzaj whose work rate was incredible, and Tom Lawrence, who looked well settled despite his first call in the senior squad. Hopefully these 3 and others will get more chance to prove their worth, even under a new manager, although Januzaj has already made his way in the first team as compared to the other 2.

Wilson scored on the 31st minute as he volleyed in a headed pass from Fellaini, and scored on the hour mark as well when he followed through as Fellaini’s initial attempt was saved. De Gea, who had nothing to do so far, had to pick out Fryatt’s 25-yard effort from the net a couple of minutes later, but the main highlight of the match came on the 69th minute, as Giggs came on for maybe his last appearance with the red shirt, cheered on by the fans, and was involved in RvP’s goal on the 86th minute. He could have scored as well to keep the tradition of scoring in every EPL season, but Hull’s keeper, Jakupovic, made an apologetic save to deny the Welsh Wizard. United’s last match will be away at Southampton, which can be predicted as a tough one, and which will see Giggs more likely sign-off from United.
