great day out, one of the best halfs I've seen us play - the first.
total quality everywhere, scored the quickest goal I've definetely seen us score (on 50'') ,which obviously helped.
another thing that helped was the fact that they lost big time in the transfer market and the only major player they got, Berbatov, started on the bench and only came on in the second half when it was already 3-0.
because of the fact that they lost in the transfer market I was positive for a win, as two days ago - before us getting Carrol and them losing Dempsey and Dembele - it was anybody's game in my view.
after the Bulgarian came in they gradually took some control of the game but never put us in any serious trouble.
man of thew match, although we were debating between Vaz Te and Noble, was Carrol who got rave reviews in the press and Match of the Day - celebrity culture, eh??
more on the day's events on the customary London Trip thread, when it's finally completed
