United 5-2 Bournemouth: 5 Things We Learnt As United Burnt Bournemouth

Goals were flying all over Old Trafford this afternoon like Naira notes being sprayed in a Naija wedding. It was a 5-star performance from United which made fans shine their '32' throughout the game.


Here are 5 things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the 5-star display:

1. MASON 'BAZUKA' GREENWOOD
His shots are indeed like a 'Bazuka'; they have no respect for goalkeepers and they always dance 'one-corner' at the back of the net whether played with his left or right foot.


Our 18-year old 'Shakiti-bobo', Greenwood, produced an excellent brace today, (left foot first half and right foot second half)to take his tally to 8 EPL  goals and 15goals in total for United this season......"Ooin, he is doing well!!"

Brighton 0-3 United: 5 Things We Learnt As United Brushed Brighton Aside.

Manchester United sat on Brighton at the Amex stadium. It was a completely dominant performance as United collected another 3 points spiced with 3 goals and a clean sheet.


Here are 5 things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the display at the Amex stadium.
1. MASON 'BAZUKA' GREENWOOD
Our junior Van Persie, Mason,  joined Martial and Marcus to form the attacking M.M.M against Brighton. The teenager was super lively throughout the game.

He capped his performance with his usual leg-over and shot into the net plus a fine assist for Bruno Fernandes.
With the way and manner his shots have been rattling the net, #ManUtdNaijaFM have decided to name him Mason 'Bazuka' Greenwood.
2. AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF BABA FERGIE
A header out of the box by Maguire, a 'Chivita-stic swinging shot by Matic, a 'Maltina-stic' cross by Greenwood, an 'Orijin-al' shot by Fernandes and the ball was dancing one-corner inside the net!!

That counter-attack was just beautiful! It brought b…

Norwich 1-2 United: 5 Things We Learnt As United Knocked Out Norwich.

Manchester United somehow left their 'blender' on their way to Carrow Road and were this forced to use a 'grinding stone' to grind out a slim 2-1 victory to progress to the semi-finals of the FA cup.


Here are 5 things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the 'grinding stone' victory:

1. IGHA-GOAL CARRY GO!
Naija's own Odion Igha-goal was once again the star man of the day. He continued his tradition of scoring in every game he starts with another well taken goal tonight.


He also was very instrumental to the making of the winning goal with a superb flick. We are proud of him and all we can say is "ooin, you are doing well!!".

2. OFF DAY
Our Portuguese magician Bruno 'Oliseh' Fernandes appeared to have been off duty today. He had his usual ginger, but no magic worked today.


Its was as though Norwich came to him to say "Oga, everyday is not Christmas". He probably needs some rest especially after this marathon game.

UNITED 3-0 SHEFFIELD: 5 Things We Learnt As United Locked Down Sheffield

Old Trafford was the ground for some football action for the first time since the covid lockdown and it turned out to be a beautiful evening as United ran out winners with a clean sheet.


Here are five things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the sweet Wednesday victory:
1. 'EVERYWHERE STEW' FOR MARTIAL
The 'embarraser-in-chief' of right backs, Anthony 'Ikechukwu' Martial was the man of the evening. The French boy was on fire for United as he calmly slotted home United's three goals of the evening.

To add some 'roundabout to the peppersoup', he surpassed his best ever goal tally of 17 goals with his 19th goal of the season after the hatrick.
In Naija we would say "everywhere stew for am today".
2. FINALLY, A HATRICK IN THE EPL!
Anthony 'Ikechukwu' Martial became the first United player to score a Premier league hatrick since 'Igwe' Alex Fergusson retired!
It has really been a long time Old Trafford witnessed such a moment, a total of…

Tottenham 1-1 United: 5 Things We Learnt As A Draw Settled The Matter.

Manchester United resumed post-lockdown duties with a clash against Tottenham Hotspur at their new stadium. Both teams had to share one point each at the end of 90 minutes.


Here are the five things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the post-lockdown clash:
1. BRUNO 'OLISEH' FERNANDES.
The Portuguese doesnt fail to make the headlines! Bruno picked up from the exact spot he left off before the lockdown.

He was everywhere, passing, tackling and thoroughly bossing the midfield. In 90 minutes, he had 90 touches, created 2 chances and scored a goal. Kudos also to Fred and McTominay for the midfield collabo with him.
2. A LIQUID METAL?
Bergwijn's goal for Tottenham was venomous. He played it like he had a 'beef' with De Gea. The amazing thing was that the shot was straight at De Gea but it somehow passed through his gloves.
As someone in Naija would say, "It  was a vely Danjelous shot".
3. WELCOME POGBA!
Hate him or love him, Paul 'Ikenna' Pogba made a delight…
