A couple of things....firstly, I'd like to apologize again for not having a proper live thread up or doing a proper Match Report.  Either the schedule I looked at was wrong or I screwed up the time zones in my head.  I subscribe to Foxsoccer.tv but the full 90 minutes of the United match was in pretty poor quality, it was hard to tell who was who. 

Later today, I hope to put a preview of Wolves up ahead of tomorrow's Carling Cup tie and I'm also working on something in regards to several recent articles about Wayne Rooney, his parents, his agent and Sir Alex. 

Here's just a quick run through the headlines:

MATCH REPORTS:

"It was a good goal,but the most important thing is that there are no heroes – it’s all about the effort of the team."
