Stoke City 1 - 2 United

Neville(Brown) Rio Vida O'Shea(Carrick)
Nani Scholes Fletcher Evra
Berbatov Chicharito

We have finally won a Premier League game away from home! United played good football at times but were very erratic. Our strikers had a good game and if they keep playing like this then I'm sure Rooney will have to work really hard to get back in the starting XI. Berbatov held the ball superbly and passed accurately while Chicharito scored two goals. His first was a bizarre, yet superb, header. This kid is scoring goals for fun and, I believe, will keep on improving. The scouting stuff found a real gem.

Neville starting the game may have raised a few eyebrows and I think that Gazza did not give Ferguson one single reason why to start him again in the coming matches. He was a tad slow and should have been sent off in the first half for a second bookable offence. Brown brought more stability in that area, during the second half, and I think he should be playing regularly. O'Shea and Scholes were really poor today. They gave the ball away too cheaply. Meanwhile Ferdinand was solid while Vidic was excellent. In fact I think he was our man of the match.

Winning away to Stoke is not easy feat. I'm really happy we have finally won on the road and maybe this match can kickstart our season. Come on United!
