Battered and bruised but simply brilliant...

United went into the half time break against Blackburn Rovers today losing one nil thanks to a goal by youngster Matt Derbyshire, the visitors probably deserved it, though Rooney should have put United into the lead before Rovers took the lead. As if that wasn't bad enough, the Reds had already lost Vidic with a suspected broken collarbone after going for a ball from a corner and falling awkardly, this is very bad news if confirmed as United have already lost Silvestre in similar circumstances, both are likely to be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

As the second half got under way many Reds were feeling that perhaps this was the day when United's season caught up with them, what with so many demanding games both on the domestic and international scene. But our fears where blown away in a majestic second half performance in which United were quite simply irrepressible as United banged in four goals with no reply - and it could have been more, a lot more. Only the Rovers stopper Brad Friedel and the woodwork stopped it from being a real beating as the American keeper denied Ronaldo, Park, Rooney and Giggs.

On 61 minutes the Ginger Prince that is Paul Scholes broke the visitors resistance to bring United level after somehow wriggling free to score a brilliant goal and in doing so igniting the atmosphere. After that the Reds swamped the visitors and it came as no surprise when Carrick put the Reds into a well deserved lead, and once again it was the man of the season Ronaldo who did the damage when his cross found the unmarked England midfielder who slotted home.

On 83 minutes, Park made it three and once again Ronaldo played his part, it was his free kick which led to the goal, then late on fans favourite Ole Solskjaer, delivered the coup de grace.

Final score United 4-1 Blackburn Rovers.

Happy days.
