Game 1 - Man Utd 5 Fulham 1

Bollocks ...

I can't remember a worse first game of the season*. A frankly puzzling 4-1-3-2 formation left us far too narrow and gave Giggs and Ronaldo all the space they wanted to cut us to shreads. Another dreadful two footed challenge from Michael Brown, for which he should have walked, and only Jimmy Bullard can stake a claim to any credit. Very very poor and best forgotten about as soon as possible, the next two games really matter now.

* Having just checked soccerbase, since 1983 when we lost 3-0 at Barnsley - soccerbase didn't go back far enough to find a 4 goal reverse!
