I expect Liverpool to drop some points tomorow. We'll wait and see! They were surely dazzled by our display today because Merseyside WAS watching!

I feel like I forgot something. Oh I remember! We're on top of the Premier League! Where are ya Scousers?

It was about 7.30am and as I walked through my work's corridor, being my usual early morning self i.e. dazed, a work mate asked me to share my match prediction with him. I murmured "4 nill to United." I know I was still in dream land but I was quite confident United were going to win in style. My confidence rocketed sky high when United scored a goal barely a minute into the match thanks to that boy Rooney. Unbelievably that was the defining moment of the match, yes, a moment which happened when the match was about 57 seconds old. Another prediction down the drain! What an anti-climax eh?
Anyway, enough of my usual pessimistic thoughts which I usually share whenever United fail to reach my towering demands. It's another win, another 3 points in the bag and another cleansheet. The 9th consecutive cleansheet! Vidic was my Man of the Match. He is truely exceptional. One banner at Old Trafford has the words VIDIC IS GOD embroidered on it, he's not god, but he is the nearest thing. He's here, he's there, he's everywhere! Aren't those what our Religion teachers used to teach us about God? Jokes aside, Vidic truly is special. His tackling and heading technique is inch perfect. Evans is also maturing into a really good centre back. We're not really missing Rio and that says a lot!
Meanwhile Tevez, who replaced the injured Rooney, huffed and puffed to impress the gaffer but he spoiled his efforts when he missed a sitter. A chance which could have settled the match, instead of forcing us supporters to wait until the final whistle. 90 long minutes, during which , a couple of years might have been shaved off our life.
Nxt match is away to Bolton. We win it and then we can start enjoying a familiar scene we have got accustomed to. That of watching hopeless teams fighting in vain to take our crown. Natural order will soon take place :)

Saying that I'm happy is an under statement. I'm absolutely delighted with today's performance. My friend Androo predicted a 3-0 win but I just laughed his guess off. I'm usually like that, I often prepare for the worse. Anyway this was a deserved win and I have come to the conclusion that United with Evra in the side play more attractive football and are more threatening. Vidic, Rooney and Berbatov scored United's hat trick of goals.

So here’s my belated wishlist
- The Premier League
- The Champions League
- Liverpool missing out on both League & Champions League
- FA Cup
- Carling Cup
- Chelsea having to deal with another trophyless season
- Beat the Scousers, the Arse and of course Chelsea at OT
- Revisit Old Trafford
- Win every single competition United might get themselves into (i.e Charity Shield, Super Cup, World Club Cup)
- Rooney to become a regular goal scorer and leads United to glory whilst bagging the best player of the year award
- Ronaldo to up his performances and does the same as during the season 07/08 and if he doesn’t show some more respect to the club I wish he gets booted out.
- The sleeping giant, Berbatov, to wake up
- Ryan air to include a direct flight between Manchester and Malta in their programme. Air Malta is too damn expensive.
- And last and not least I want United to play that kind of breath taking football, the same kind of football we witnessed 2 seasons ago and to some extent last year.
Call me a dreamer but my dreams about United usually come true except for the gazillion times I dreamt that I had been signed by Man Utd. Oh Well. (Any wishes you want to add to mine?)
Meanwhile after Wednesday’s loss to Derby, Ronaldo was still dazed and early on Thursday morning he crashed with his $200,000 car. He managed to ‘dive’ out of the car unscratched. That guy surely likes diving! What could have caused such an accident? He was probably on the phone or doing his hair. It's a shame he could bend cars yet can't bend a freakin freekick! Oh well, I thank God he wasn't injured for I can't imagine United without Ronaldo. He may be an arrogant bit headed Portuguese but he surely is influential.
Anyway don’t be too worried about him losing his $200,000 Ferrari. He was seen driving a Bentley in the evening and he will afford to buy a new Ferrari when he receives his weekly wage. Yes that’s right, his WEEKLY wage. I fancy earning a tenth of his weekly wage every year! But I guess I can dream on and carry on with my 11,000euro a year shitty job I’ve got.
Ritchie De Laet
Meanwhile United have snatched another player to add to the addition of the two young Serbs Zoran Tosic and Adem Ljajic who signed for United last week. (You’re right again! I had to copy their names from manutd.com and paste them onto here. Ljajic in particular is too damn uncommon to remember. The commentators will have a hard time pronouncing that name!) Yesterday United snatched Mr. Ritchie De Laet from Stoke City. I don’t know too much about the guy so I won’t judge. But still, I gotta say something! What the hell was Fergie thinking?? Ok, there, I can now go to sleep.

Although we missed a couple of chances, I believe United played quite well. Berbatov, although unwilling to shoot from ideal positions, made some clever touches which opened the Saints defence wide open. Good improvement from the last couple of games. Now, I hope he starts shooting more, just like Rooney who was ultra motivated and managed to motivate his team mates and even created a goal for Gibson.
Welbeck, Nani(pen) and Gibson scored the 3 goals today. Welback showed great pace today and I believe that he will shine in the future. Well I hope he isn't a new 'Chris Eagles'/'Luke Chadwick' type of player, a great prospect but ends up sold to a lower league team.
Possebon and Gibson didn't have a lot of influence on the match and gave the ball away often. I hope they improve because they seem to be two decent players.
Next match is vs Derby, Carling Cup Semi-Final. I know it's just the carling cup but silverware is silverware and I hope we win it! Adios!
