United - Scholes on Win!

The first league game of the season is always something to get the juices pumping and Monday night was no exception.

After waiting all summer for the action to get underway, (after all nothing matches club football does it?), it`s fair to say the United started a little slowly and could even have been chasing the game if Andy Carroll hadn`t of wasted a great early headed chance.

But once the side settled down and began to play the style of football we`re so comfortable with, it was all one way traffic, barring the odd Newcastle excursion into our half.

The two goal cushion, established in the last third of the first half helped to make it quite a comfortable second forty five minutes, a fact picked up on by man-of-the-match, Paul Scholes, who had this to say to the media after the final whistle,

"I really enjoyed the second half."

"We created chances and looked we could score every time we went forward."

"I think we could have maybe scored a few more goals but we`ll take that, a three-nil win to start the season."

"The important thing with your first game is to win it and we managed to do that. I don`t think we started too well in the first 20 to 25 minutes against Newcastle."

"We just had to be patient, try to keep the ball, keep them moving, draw them out and then hopefully the gaps would come. Once we got that first goal, I think we were a constant threat after that."


Indeed United were and with some better finishing we could have matched Chelsea`s emphatic start to the season, but let`s not get too worried about the southern side as we`re only one game into a thirty eight game campaign and a lot can, and will, still happen as the weeks and months unfold!

Newcastle were dominated and couldn't do anything about it, though they did pounce when the opportunity came along.

could have been 1-0 up if Carroll knew where the goal was!
