Well, that was fun!!!! Laughing

That was 2 levels above anything we've produced in the last 5 years. Totally in control.

Let's hope that is the start of things to come

That was incredible. Goals galore. Lukaku was just way we have needed since RvP was sold.

Attacking? Centre mid just owning the pitch? Marauding centre forward? Pacey kids running all over?

Oh God, please let it carry on....

So good to watch.

Clinical finish by Stormzy for the 1st goal.

Top of the league? My oxygen levels have dipped already.

GIDDY!

I need to know the identity of the guy impersonating Alan ABU Shearer on MOTD
Whoever he was had a near wank fest over Romelu, I would refer to him as Lukaku but I think the impersonator has deep love and deserves cristian names.

Anyway at 4-0 and it's difficult to find faults

Joe Hart wadda a guy, England's number one Laughing Laughing Laughing

To be fair, he never got near any of the four goals.

our highest league win for 3 years apparently Shocked Shocked

that says about everything you need to say about the last 3 years.

a game that last season we failed to win ,because we failed to break down a defensive side. West Am set out to sit back but once they conceded they had no plan B and when they tried to open up we picked them off.
given that many teams will come here with the same tactic , I think we all share a real belief this season ,that this side has the "potential" to do the same to any of those teams.

a very positive start indeed Cool

Only saw the highlights and heard the majority of the game on radio yesterday. Sounded like an outstanding performance by everybody involved. A few more performances like that and away teams will suffer from the fear factor coming to Old Trafford again.

We have some big lads in our side who can play which will go some way to challenging for the title.

I think the biggest difference we've seen is the power and energy that Matic brings to the team, a proper box to box player who is bringing our midfield to a whole new level and also shows what a myth Carrick has been for the past 4 years.

That was a great way to start the season, a great win and an enjoyable performance - in fact I can't remember a performance like that for a long, long time.

If we can turn half of the draws of last season into wins then we'll have a good season. Real test will come against better opposition, last season we parked at least one bus against good teams, hopefully we'll see us go for them with power, speed and energy.

Matic yesterday was a joy to watch, a great debut. Lukaku will score a bagful for us but we'll need some of the others to get in on the act more often, like they did yesterday.

Less of the Carrick bashing. A great player who loves united.

I was won around by the "Carrick is great" argument based on the stats with him in the team. He certainly looked like he made a difference. I also loved his professionalism on and off the pitch.

However, and I know it is early days, I agree. Matic has really exposed Carrick. Not only did he break up play and hold the ball well, some of the passing reminded me of Scholes (without getting too carried away).
