Frankly, I don't care if it was instinctive or not, it's the fact he's putting himself into good positions that is what I'm happy about. That he's scoring these game winners, well that's just the cherry on top of the icing on top of the cake!

"As soon as the ball came to him, he puts his foot on it and that's the instinct of a striker.

We're very hopeful for the boy - he's got a great eye for goal and a tremendous physique."

Macheda v Sunderland
There it is again..... I still kinda think its instinctive but Im not 100% sure.
Not just going by that clip, watched it from lots of different angles.
On play or even slow play it looks instinctive, freeze it and run frame by frame it looks
like a fluke, he doesn't seem to turn his foot to it but he does see the ball coming and
deflects it.

My vote.....Who gives a monkeys ? It's a goal and a very important one at that. :specool:
Will be debated for a long time to come.

UNITED top of the league !!!

I couldn't care less. That was an important goal and I'm happy we got the vital 3 points.

On a side note, Macheda is showing our other strikers that good things do happen when you stick around the penalty box :rolleyes:

at first it looks like a fluke, but i sincerely don't care. United won and Macheda scored another impotant goal . I'm realy glad for him , but i'm even more happy that we won. I was realy dissapointed when i saw what kind of goal we've received. Let's hope we can cut the mistakes short in the future games.

“He has got something special about him, the boy,” Ferguson said. “I haven’t seen the goal, but one of

the players said he actually tried it. He side-footed it as it came to him. It’s that quick-thinking that

goalscorers have got. He has just got that instinct.”
