Manchester United Kick off Title defense in style


A first match and a first victory; a new manager  

Rooney acknowledged the supporters as he warmed up but certainly did not join in the celebrations for either of the two United goals he helped to selflessly construct and then walked straight down the tunnel at the end.
 
Robin van Persie has topped the Premier League scoring charts for two seasons and with two goals here he threw down the gauntlet again. He also scored two in last Sunday’s Community Shield. For all the talk, the telephone-number transfer fees, and the focus on Rooney, Gareth Bale and Luis Suárez, it is RVP who remains the league’s MVP.
There were also two goals for an England striker but, instead of Rooney, it was Danny Welbeck. He has already beaten his league total from last season – just the one – in one evening’s work. His second, an exquisite chip, and Van Persie’s first, a crisp scissor-kick, are already contenders for goal of the season.
Certainly there was a rich intent from the champions which showed that, for all the challenges expected from Chelsea and Manchester City this season, they will not give up their title lightly. The weather in South Wales was indeed epic on Saturday but this title race could have a similar grand sweep to it.  
Peoples Digest commends Moyes for making it in this first game and we all look forward how he fills the shoe left too him be Sir Alex Fergusson and it sure looks to be a very interesting season
