Well done but that will be the first of many dropped points for United this season, without Ronaldo they have lost a huge part of their attacking threat and had he been playing last night for United I'm sure he would've done something out of nothing as he done so many times over the last 3 seasons and got the points.

Imagination is key there.

Hardly played out of the park, could easily of been a draw if the referee had his googles testing....

Still played poor.

we were crap mate - shouldnt have to relay on the ref to win against them, everybody is only taking notice of them because last year they were bottom for yet another mouth into the season, two wins doesnt make them a good team

from nottm, naice.

as for spuds,they could create a few suprises this season. unless, as i hope, they badly tail away.

Gee's though we were Manchester United, Not FC Ronaldo, It's a team game.

No doubt Ronaldo's irreplaceable but he wasn't better than the team.

New era for United, We may struggle a little this season, However we'll get stronger and a new hero will be born.

I'm not bothered, So long as Pool or City don't win the title.

Congrats to Burnley, They deserved it.

Nani didn't play last night, To be honest Nani's looked impressive and when his shoulders healed hopefully he'll do well.

Owen just needs to find his feet, Play on the same wave length.

To be honest for the last 3 seasons you have been FC Ronaldo, the guy single handedly won you those trophies. It's all well and good having a great defence but if you don't have the attacking players to get you results when it gets tough then you ain't going to win anything. Owen's going to have to step up sooner rather than later.

We'll see, FC Cantona > FC Beckham > FC Ronaldo > FC ?

Someone needs to step up or we need to buy someone to fill the void.

Ronaldo got a lot laid onto him, He didn't take on 11 players to score, A lot of his goals could of been scored from other players.

The nack was to give Ronaldo the ball, Now they need to do more themselves.

I think we already have the players to do that and give a bit more.

Yes and after Beckham left you didn't win the league title until the 4th season after his exit. I just think you were so dependent on Ronaldo and now your players will struggle. Your defence is still excellent, but in midfield and strike you look very average and with Chelsea having sorted themselves out and Arsenal finally looking like they can defend United might just struggle this year. Maybe if you had got someone like Villa or Benzema you would've had a great chance of success, but I don't think your current strike force is good enough. Time will tell and we're only 2 games in so anything could change plus the transfer window isn't closed yet but I don't think United will do as well this year as they did last.

I beg to differ. United have done well over the last few years as because Ronaldo was such a threat going forward, teams couldn't afford to attack them in numbers. When put under pressure their defence isn't really that great. Liverpool went to Old Trafford last season and after going a goal down started going at them... and look what happened. Then the next week Fulham did the same (and won) and then Villa almost did the same too. If Vidic goes they're in big trouble IMHO.

Vidic's not going anywhere, Defensive record says otherwise, Some teams are scared to attack any of the top teams but still managed to put more goals past them than United.

Last season v Liverpool was a one off bad day for Vidic, Also United pushed up to much, They got United on the counter, v Fulham we were two men down at one point.

True it was a blip in our season, However last night we had a weakened defence, No Rio or Vidic.

No excuse though, To be honest Rooney had a bad game, We need Rooney to play well to win these games. Ryan Giggs was excellent though, That's one positive to come out the game.

but hes like on the verge of retirement? hows that good?

Thanks for reminding me, Well this could be his last season, However if he keeps playing like he has been then I'm sure he could still possibly be here next season as well, He also scored his first United hat trick pre season.

Plenty of life left in the old dog yet, He's a legend of the game, We will value his experience.

Can't argue with that. Same can be said of Scholes :thumbsup:

oh look another thread on this match, was it a cup final or something?

spammed

with the exception of rooney, vidic, ferdinand and possibly evra every other man u player wouldn't look out of place at a 2nd tier premiership team such as a fulham, everton or villa.

They are filled with mediocrity, o'shea, the korean guy, brown and players who have gone on for that one season too many giggs and scholes and as such will struggle to get into the top 4.

The title is chelsea's for the taking as liverpool rely far too much on torres and gerrard (especially gerrard) and I'm still convinced that arsenal will still struggle against teams that get about them and crowd out cesc and arshavin.

In fact and go to so far and say that spurs will finish above man u this season, as much as I don't like the crook harry redknapp he's got one helluva decent squad there and if they can sort out a centre back that isn't always walking wounded and maybe add one other bit of quality in midfield then they will be challenging the top 4 no probs.

To win it four times on the trot would be a difficult task, It'll take some time for the new system to take shape, The new players to adapt etc.

I'd like to say I'm confident United will win it, However Chelsea look to be a big threat at the moment.

Have to wait and see.

United will still be top 3 in my opinion, Liverpool I think will struggle badly this season, already they look weak and you take Gerrard or Torres out as well and they will drop points. Benitez also doesn't have the squad or consistency to win the title, I think last season was more an anomoly than something that will consistently happen.

I don't think Chelsea will win it. Ancelotti isn't a great domestic manager (1 league title in 8 years). However, in Europe he's excellent, and I think he'll prioritise the Champions League.

They'll also lose Drogba, Kalou and Essien in January for the African Cup of Nations.

I think you'll see a different Liverpool this year. The signings of Johnson and Aquliani (and now possibly Van Der Vaart) will make us a lot more direct and attacking (to try and rid those home draws) but at the same time will leave us more open at the back, and we might not do as well as we did last season against the other big teams.

We do struggle when Torres and/or Gerrard miss games, but we still ended up as top scorers last season with both of them missing chunks of the season, so goals from the rest of the team aren't an issue.
