United 3 - 0 Newcastle

O'Shea Evans Vidic Evra(Rafael)
Valencia Fletcher Scholes Nani(Giggs)
Rooney(Chicharito) Berbatov

It was a joy to watch United pass the ball around so comfortably, although, I must admit, that at times, especially during the first half, we gave away the ball cheaply. But the ease at which our players managed to circulate the ball around the field was simply brilliant at times. Scholes was his usual self, he showed us that he still can't tackle but then showed the United faithful that his passing skills are still there. The precision at which he delivers the ball must make any player, even passing masters Iniesta and Xavi, jealous. Unfortunately he's on the wrong side of the 30's :(

Berbatov was on target again and I'm pretty pleased about that. He had another good game and I guess this is the season during which we'll be able to enjoy the 30million pounds Fergie spent on him. Fletcher scored another and a beautiful volley from Giggsy completed the icing on the cake. Scholes provided the assist for the 1st and 3rd goals.

Overall I'm quite happy although there are some things that made me worry. 1st point is that Rooney does not look match fit. His passing is OK but his finishing is terrible at the moment. I expect him to regain fitness by the end of this month. He's a player who's capable of making or breaking our season. Another negative from this match is O'Shea at right-back. He didn't look comfortable at all and I don't think Fergie should trust him there! Next match is away to Fulham. It will definitely be a tough match but I hope United do what they failed to do during the past couple of seasons and beat the cottagers.
