John Carver Wins NUFC v Wigan Man Of The Match Award

9 years ago

In our regular man of the match feature which we have after each game, we couldn’t resist adding John Carver into the mix.

I’m know I wasn’t the only one cheering him on as he confronted Callum McManaman as he went off at half-time, you didn’t need to be an expert at lip reading to see on the action replays what JC says to him….though that bloke from the Wigan coaching team who got involved wasn’t small!

Anyway, John Carver proudly carries off Sunday’s man of the match award with 27% of the vote, next best were Steven Taylor (19%), Davide Santon (13%) and Jonas (9%).

Taylor following up an outstanding performance against Anzhi in the Europa League by being the best United player on the pitch yesterday.

Davide Santon showed much improved from on the right hand side from what he showed on Thursday, while Jonas gave his typical hard working game and made one brilliant run back and interception to prevent a goal.

I’m only glad we have to go to Wigan only once a season!
