Newcastle 0 - 2 Man United

As always, it was a tough match at St James'. Newcastle played very well in the first half and made it very difficult. It was good to see United stand up to the bully-boy tactics and just get on with playing despite getting kicked from pillar to post all over the place.

Where would we be without Wayne Rooney? This is the second time in three games that he's been the difference for us and whenever he gets the ball I start getting that odd buzzing feeling in my bones I used to get when Eric Cantona played. The first goal showed he can be a sniffer as he capitalised on Boumsong's mistake but the second was fantastic. It was the ninetieth minute of the match and he still managed to dreg up the last bits of energy to defend in the right-back position, win the ball, beat his man, sprint down the pitch and send a gorgeous pass to van Nistlelrooy to score. It was phenomenal.

Rooney and Ruud have put the hairs on the back of my neck up. I hope they stay there.
