As far as the match went, I thought United played better for longer periods of time than it did for most of last season. One, top class CM and injury-free seasons for de Gea, Carrick, and RvP, and United could win the league. There'd need to more improvement to be a serious challenger in the UCL, but I'd be ecstatic to finish atop the Premiership again this season.

Having slept on it...the one difference in Utd's performance that I thought was a really really good sign yesterday: we killed Swansea off.

Even with 2 up we were in control, but we really killed Swansea off with RVP's screamer.

That did not and would have never have happened last season. Last season we would NOT have scored a third, would have conceded in the 80th minute and would have spent the last 10 minutes with all-hands-on-deck defending...

We were definitely up for the fight. Doesn't mean we don't need a midfield star. We will be competing in the Champions league and need to be much better and able to compete at the very top.

Ah, so you did actually watch some of the matches last season :)

Seriously, though, that's a good observation. Let's hope they keep it up.
