Ronaldo against Charlton
United's campaign is off to a good start, with our biggest win in 40 years for the opening match of the season at Old Trafford on Sunday (untelevised, crap) followed by a convincing 3-0 win today against Charlton, even without Rooney. Eight goals in two games = goodness!

I even really like the black and white away strip, although the home strip, standard red with the new sponsor logo irks me for a reason I can't put my finger on...

Big news from today's game was the appearance of new signing Micheal Carrick, and a goal to fan-favourite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after 3 years (!) sidelined with injuries. He's no spring chicken anymore, but he is beloved by the Old Trafford crowd, due to his allegiance to supporters during the Glazer takeover, and more significantly, his winning goal in injury time of the 1999 Champions League Final that gave us the "Treble" (winning the league, domestic FA cup, and Euro Champions League cup all in same year).

Early days, but The Red Devils sit top of the table, 3 points clear of Chelsea thanks to Aussie Mark Viduka's late winner for Middlesbrough, which was fantastic for Manchester, but horrible for my Fantasy Football points.
