Wow...What a day/night all round!

Have spent it all pretty pi**ed and i'm still going! 🥴
If the Saints win didn't put some wood in my pants, after
United were done with Chelsea, let's just say it was party time down below! 😁

Only one game i know, and the club def still has it's issues
But Man what a way to start a new era! And our crowd were phenomenal!
Rode our luck in the 1st half...But the quality and dare shown in the 2nd half
Was inspiring to say the least! 5 Academy graduates in the starting line up no less
And all the goals were assisted by them! Sensational performance!

Capped off by the one moment in sport that genuinely gave me the emotional tingles
Just like the United of old was young Dan James scoring on his debut and the deeply
Heartfelt celebration from the young man, having just lost his father very recently!

All in all just a wonderful swashbuckling performance that belied the general negativity
Surrounding Manchester United these days!
Well played lads! Very proud indeed!
They sure did put a big smile on this old p!sshead's dial! Glory Glory Baby!

I think the most pleasing thing about yesterday was that such a young team was able to produce that performance. Pogba was the oldest outfield player at 26. We have some exciting youngsters, and I thought Maguire and Wan-Bissaka made a huge difference in the defence. Midfield still concerns me; I would liked to see a top class player signed there. There was a very positive atmosphere inside the stadium. Let's hope there is a better season ahead.

Maguire and Wan-Bissaka were great, defence still had some moments where they seemed to lose concentration but that was a very good start. 4-0 home win against Chelsea to start the season, scoreline probably flattered us just a little and on another day we would've been down at Half Time, but that's football.

Midfield concerns me a bit too, the lack of quality when you take Pogba out is quite alarming. Tough game coming up away to Wolves but I feel like we're catching them at a good time, their fixture is pretty hectic with Europa League qualifiers. If we can get the 3 points it can really set us up for a strong season.
