Manchester United Beat the Wanderers 2-0

Even Fergie didn`t think it was a penalty, but that didn`t really matter. Rob Styles awarded the Reds one, and Ronaldo put it away to make it 1-0.

It was a game in which United dominated, Bolton put 10 men behind the ball much of the time, but fortunately their negative style of play didn`t stop United from getting all three points.

Wayne Rooney came off the bench to add a second following a fine counter-attack — his first goal for United since April.

Chelsea and United in 1-1 Draw

Chelsea boss Scolari must have been very relieved to escape with a point against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, after injuries to Deco and Ricardo Carvalho.

Ji-sung Park gave United a deserved 18th-minute lead, but substitute Salomon Kalou headed an equalizer 10 minutes from time to preserve Chelsea's 85-match unbeaten home league record.

1-1 the final score then, and United need to start picking up points soon, though an away draw against Chelsea can`t be bad.

Liverpool Defeat United

Hmm, not good is it? United go down 1-2 at Liverpool, and Vidic gets sent off.

Ah well, we started off badly last season and look where we ended up. Let`s hope we turn things around.

Come back Ronaldo, all`s forgiven.

Fergie Unconcerned By City Money

Sir Alex Ferguson is unconcerned by the threat posed by local rivals Manchester City following their takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group for Development and Investment. The Manchester United manager was speaking following a two-day meeting of Europe's top coaches at the Swiss headquarters of European soccer's governing body Uefa.

Ferguson also poured scorn on suggestions that City would make a move for Cristiano Ronaldo in the January transfer window. Dr Sulaiman Al-Fahim, head of the Abu Dhabi United Group, had suggested that he was prepared to pay £135m for the Portugal winger but, having already seen off the advances from Real Madrid for Ronaldo, Ferguson wasn't prepared to take City's interest too seriously. "They can talk," he said.

United Finally Get Their Man Berbatov

The long-running saga over the transfer of the Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov is over. Spurs have confirmed they had accepted a bid of £30.75million and had taken Fraizer Campbell on loan for the rest of the season. They also agreed to drop their complaint that Manchester United had acted improperly by seeking to unsettle the player.

Berbatov was unwilling to even meet Manchester City, the club the Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy, had wanted to do business with, they were faced with either accepting United’s money or taking back a clearly disgruntled player, who could buy out his contract in 10 months time.
