United are through to the fourth round of the Carling Cup thanks to a 1-0 win over Wolves. Welbeck scored the decisive goal after a dazzling one-two with last Sunday's hero Owen.

Considering that we played for an hour with 10 men, I think this was a good performance by the boys. It was nice to see Kuzchak back in goal, VDS and the recent rise of Foster have limited our Pole's appearances in a United shirt. However, I strongly believe that Kuz is better than Foster in some departments and not playing him is pretty harsh. Brown also had a good match and so did Gibson. I always liked Gibson, he's a no nonsense midfielder with an eye for goal. His shooting is pin point and he's scored some fabulous goals last year. I'd like to see more of the Irishman.

The 17 year old debutant, Joshua King, seems to be an interesting young striker. He had a decent debut in which he could have scored after dribbling past the Wolves defense. Another young lad to keep an eye on.

Our next match is away to Stoke. It will be a tough test but I expect United to win it by the odd goal. C'mon you reds!
