United 7 - 1 Blackburn

Rafael Rio Vidic(Evans) Evra
Nani Carrick Anderson Park(Obertan)
Rooney Berbatov

Finally we can say that we've seen the real United. The United everyone feared during the past 20 glorious years. The football played during this game was of the highest calibre with the only negative, amongst the many many positives, being that we did not keep a clean sheet. All the players played their part in this entertaining game. Berbatov, yes Berbatov, scored 5. His goals were well taken but I do admit that he was a tad lucky on a couple of occasions. Still, he's a striker and he did what he is asked to do i.e. score goals. Nani and Park scored the other two.

I'm usually a moaner but I can't really find anything to moan about. Except, maybe, for the fact that Evans should have done something about Blackburn's goal. Rooney, although not on the scoresheet, was exceptional. His ball interchange with the rest of the the team was a real eye pleaser. Most of the football he played was one-touch football, and that is something I truly adore. More of the same please!

Meanwhile, another player who impressed me today, apart from the usual suspects, was Anderson. His passing was spot on and he managed to create 2 goals if I'm not mistaking. Well done Anderson and indeed well done UNITED!

n.b Chelsea's almighty goal difference has been equalled and I have a tingly feeling that they might slip up tomorrow.
