I mean we scored five and all but I can't say I expected anything less---I mean who the hell are Scunthorpe?
There are only just a few notes to make in review of the Carling Cup third round fixture last night. The first is that we do have a large squad that, bar an injury crisis, can last the distance fitness wise. I mean we shouldn't fall victim to fatigue this year if we can afford to make 11 changes to a team that played against Liverpool on Sunday and still have 8 senior Internationals in the side.
Secondly, it was nice to see us poach five goals against opponents that had more shots on target than us but still manage to win 2-5. That perhaps explains why PIG was given man of the match by Skysports.
Third, from what we've seen so far, Bebe doesn't seem to be as bad as the media have made out. Ronaldo was nowhere any better than his fellow Portuguese at 20 years so Sir Alex should be given a break about this 'signing him before seeing him play' thing.
Fourth and finally that we have yet another golden chance to win this competition---third time in a row as what you'd call our main challengers; Chelsea, Citeh, Everton, Liverpool, etc were dumped out.
On a more serious note, we've got an important game on Sunday at the Reebok stadium and it's one of those games that we have to win on a weekend when the likes of Chelsea and City are playing each other. Roll on the weekend!
