Match Report: Charlton 1 - 3 Man Utd
Published Saturday, November 19, 2005 by JamesBB2 | E-mail this post
A first visit to The Valley in 3 weeks for me. I was well psyched up for the match! A pre match beer to warm me up in the freezing cold and wearing my warm parker (not judas one!!) I took to my seat to see what would hopefully be an amazing match. A poor start as usual was rewarding for Man Utd with Alan Smith on target in the 38th. A driven shot from outside the box. It finished at half time with United's advantage. The second half performance was almost like a different Charlton team playing. We played really well and our pressure was rewarded with a wonder goal from Darren Ambrose. A great shot to add to the already great atmosphere and the bolts The Valley's roof must have been ready to fall off! Unfortunately 5 minutes later Van Nistelrooy managed to get a turn and shoot volley in. Gutted. Adding to that 10 minutes later with a driven shot from outside the box.
A good performance from the lads wasn't worthy of a defeat, we were unlucky but there are still many areas we need to improve on. Villa should be good!
