United 3 - 2 Liverpool

O'Shea Vidic Evans Evra
Nani(Gibson) Fletcher Scholes Giggs(Macheda)
Berbatov(Anderson) Rooney

United managed to throw away a two goal lead against scouse opposition yet again. However, this week we came out on top with a deserved 3-2 win. Liverpool didn't even deserve to score a goal let alone two! Berbatov, the same guy who I kept criticising over and over again during the past 2 seasons, scored a hat-trick, the pick of the bunch scored after a sublime bicycle kick. This is the player Fergie paid 30million quid for and I'm glad Fergie's patience is finally reaping benefits.

United played really well today, however just like vs Everton last week, there were those 5 minutes during which our defence was all over the place and committed stupid & useless fouls. Evans shouldn't have committed himself vs the ladyboy, that challenge was clumsy and I think O'Shea didn't foul Liverpool's nancy boy but the latter dived like a professional diver and the ref took the bait. If that was a foul, then O'Shea should have been sent off....simple as that.

I'm glad for our Bulgarian, however Rooney has hit an all time low. His passes are good, one shouldn't expect less than a decent pass from a player who earns 120k a week, but he's not getting in scoring positions and that's the reason he is not scoring this season. I hope he gets back to his usual self SOON! Meanwhile at the back we're not looking comfortable at all, in fact we conceded 8 goals in the premier league. Aspiring champions do not concede that amount of goals in 5 games. Anyway our next match is vs Scunthorpe, we will definitely see some young players on show. C'mon United!
