United - Driving Ourselves on to Greatness!

I`m gutted we have to wait until Monday night for our first Premier League fixture of the new season!

I know that the extra two days will give Sir Alex Ferguson the chance to nudge his World Cup contingent nearer to full fitness but it still feels as if we`ve not been invited to some sort of party.

But it will still be interesting to see how our rivals start the season and we`ll enter the fixture with Newcastle knowing what we need to do to match them.

After losing our Premier League crown last season, by a solitary point, the emphasis is on regaining a crown we rightfully believe to be ours and it appears that Michael Carrick, who many believed would mss the opening game through injury, is keen to remind everyone just how painful it was ending up second last season.

Perhaps the pain felt can be used as some sort of incentive to drive us on towards success this season.

Anyway, here`s what Michael had to say about his memories of finishing second last season,

"You`re just sitting there and don`t know what to do with yourself, thinking what might have been and what we might have done better."

"It wasn`t a nice feeling."

"I don`t think the manager said a great deal. There`s not really a lot you can say. No one feels good and you just want next season to start so you can repair the damage."

"When things aren`t going well you have to take it on the chin and bounce back"

Exactly, with the squad boosted by the arrival of Hernandez, Smalling and Bebe, let`s sit back and watch United show the rest how it should be done this season!
