Charity Shield

Sunday the 7th of August was the introduction of the eagerly anticipated start to the new Barclays Premier League season as two of the favourites for this years Barclays Premier League title went head to head in the big Manchester showdown. With Manchester United victorious last year in their quest for the league title and Manchester City winning their first trophy in thirty six years it set them up for the big charity shield showdown and made a usually unimportant clash, a mouth watering derby of the two Manchester giants. Travel Connection sold a number of football tickets and obviously Wembley tickets for this clash of the titans, with much more interest being shown for this fixture than any other previous year, setting the league up for what looks like, is going to be the most exciting and contested league battle for many years. The game got under-way and Manchester United instantly took the game by the scruff of the neck, controlling the tempo of the game and creating the most exciting chances within the first half hour. However with Manchester City becoming stronger and stronger every year with the cash injections that they have received, the game then started to become more and more open as half time approached and on the 37th minute it was the blue side of Manchester that opened the scoring when the Spanish magician David Silva curled in an inviting ball into the six yard area that was latched onto by a firm Joleon Lescott header to give them an undeserved lead. Manchester City went onto to stun Manchester United even further eight minutes later when a blistering strike by the rejuvenated Edin Dzeko flew past the hapless youngster David De Gea, with him having an element of fault put on him for both goals. At the interval Mr Ferguson made a number of changes introducing many of the younger untested players into the fray, a chance that the youngsters took gladly. The second half begun very brightly, as Manchester United came firing out of the blocks with three changes made, dazzling Manchester City with some of their exquisite passing and movement off the ball. Their determination and passion paid off on the 53rd minute when substitute Chris Smalling converted, from a delightful little ball played into the box and they were at it again six minutes later with a truly exquisite array of passing lead to a beautiful little chipped goal by Nani that was eventually slipped through by a very positive looking Tom Cleverley. Manchester United then wrapped the game up as it looked as though extra time maybe looming, when a mistake by the otherwise faultless Vincent Kompany allowed Nani a free run on goal, which he then coolly rounded Joe Hart which enabled Manchester United to retain the trophy.
