Easy, easy. You won’t get many handier starts to a season then this.
With the lone exception of Carrol’s first half shot, Newcastle never looked that threatening. If Rooney had been on form, this would have been a massacre. As it was, three well worked goals and a confident start to the campaign.
Scholes and Giggs keep proving why they still have a place in the heart of the team. Centre of midfield needs a little work and Rooney has to get his head in the game. But, minor complaints. I envision a harder test against Fulham on Sunday.
