Manchester United 3 Debrecen 0

So the shadow dancing of pre-season is over and The Reds get down to business with an impressive 3-0 Champions League of Europe victory over the reigning Hungarian champions Debrecen.

I expected a slow beginning but Wayne Rooney put paid to that idea with a well taken if scrappy goal in the 7th minute. Debrecen didn’t threaten much beyond the occasional speculative counter but did have a goal disallowed right at the start of the second half.

United tidied things up, playing with a lot of pace and looking sharp and added goals from Ruud van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo, both courtesy of excellent Rooney passes so, barring unexpected disasters during the away leg in Hungary on Wednesday August 24th, we should be able to get through to the Champions League proper, the group stage.

    Admittedly from the country that doesn’t get into socc… that is to say, football, I’m curious.

    How long does the season last?

    Hi Matthew,

    Thanks for avoiding the cardinal sin of using the “S” word!

    The English Premiership runs from this forthcoming weekend all the way through to the first weekend of May 2006 with the season wrapping up with the FA Challenge Cup Final at the brand new Wembley Stadium on 13th May 2006.
