Scunthorpe 2 - 5 United

Brown Rio Smalling Rafael
Chicharito Gibson Anderson Park
Owen Macheda
As expected United won this game but it was no walk in the park. Scunthorpe caused a catalogue of problems for our defenders and our goalie wasn't that convincing. Gibson delightful chip cancelled Scunthorpe's shock lead. Smalling scored his first United goal and a brace by Owen and a goal by Park followed. Overall it was a good game and I'm delighted for Rio and Anderson for completing the 90minutes. Another positive is Bebe's contribution when he entered the field of play. Chicharito and Macheda were a tad disappointing though, the former was played out of position and that may be the reason why he never really got going. Bolton away next. Tricky fixture but I expect United to get the first away win of the season.

On another note, City, Liverpool and Chelsea have been dumped out of the Carling Cup. I thought City's only real chance of silverware this season was either the Carling Cup or the Fa Cup. Well, they won't win the League Cup for sure. That's how it feels like to be CITY! Bwaha!
