I’ll make this quick:
- United dominated the game today and fully deserved the 4-0 scoreline. It’s got to be said that Charlton were very poor though, with the exception of their new keeper.
- Carroll started in goal, with a back four of Brown, Silvestre, Ferdinand and John O’Pie. 😐
- Ryan Giggs returned alongside Keane, Scholes and Fletcher in midfield. 😯
- No Ruud van Nistelrooy again today so Smith and Rooney played together upfront. 😎
- All of the goals were very well taken. Scholes, Fletcher, Smith and Rooney were the scorers. Clips to follow as soon as they’re available.
- Absolutely superb away support today, could hear every song clearly on Sky. They went through the full repertoire of songs for most of the current team and a few ex-players too. “Rio, Rio, Sign the deal” made me smile and they even managed to get Ricardo to wave from the bench. 😆
- Today’s viewing experience was greatly enhanced by Strongbow so, if you saw the game, please excuse any difference between your recollection of events and mine. I don’t know what made me buy cider, I haven’t done since I was a kid, but it really hit the spot today. 😳
