Charlton vs Manchester United
Wednesday 23rd August 2006.
Sky Sports 2.
Our second Premiership Game of the Season is a trip to the Valley, which is a good hunting ground for us, as we seem to win there every time. Charlton lost their opening game to West Ham 3-1, and we should be in confident mood when we face them.
The last time we came to the Valley, we saw some brilliance from Ruud Van Nistelrooy, who scored a fantastic goal, which he volleyed home from close range. He then scored a goal from outside the box, his very first goal has scored from outside the box, but good old Ruud won't be helping us this time round.
I should mention Alan Smith, who also scored a goal against Charlton, and I believe that was his last goal too, I'm not sure though. I'm looking forward to this game, we can beat Charlton, but how many will we win by?
Charlton 0-2 Manchester United
