Made in Manchester

Longtime readers of this blog might remember my penchant for the well-worked breakaway goal.

There was another absolute classic of the genre in this weekend's exciting Manchester United v. Bolton fixture; a piece of sublime interplay between Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo (has there been a better player in Europe than the Portuguese winger this season?), culminating in a deft finish by the former. Clearly that "incident" in Gelsenkirchen has been consigned to history, as the two combined superbly throughout the vibrant first half.

United's fourth goal was another breakaway special, with Alan Smith the provider for Rooney this time.

Not a second wasted - and that's what I love about such goals.
