Ronaldo breaks the deadlock at Pride Park.

Prem 2007/08 Win Outright: Man Utd 8/15

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is adamant "someone is going to suffer" once his side find their stride in front of goal.

After watching the Reds narrowly escape potential embarrassment at Pride Park, Ferguson is now becoming increasingly irritated at the "charitable" nature of his players.

It happened at Old Trafford last weekend and it resulted in United being dumped out of the FA Cup by Portsmouth, and then it happened again against the Rams.

For 75 minutes chance after chance went begging, until man of the season Cristiano Ronaldo - who else? - finally ended brave Derby's resistance by scoring his 31st goal this term.

Bolton could be in for a happy spanking contest. They have their main goalkeeper out for the season. 4 losses in a row and they're prime for relegation me thinks.

Fingers crossed Sunderland stay up though. Maybe Keano will buy Campell from us next season, and Dave Jones from Derby. If they get the Campell/Kenwyne partnership right it could be potent and productive.

Got a good squad sunderland have. I have a sneeeeky suspicion Fulham are going to stay up as well.

Sorry, blabbed on too much. Good website though Sportinglife and racingpost are. :)

Play 2 strikers Fergie. Get the 4-4-2 going so our strikers can start scoring! Start scoring Rooney! We effin paid 30m for you!! Look at Torres? 20+ goals in his FIRST SEASON and cost like 10m less than Rooney. Okay I know Rooney is a 2nd striker and not a clinical finisher like him and his role is to play more deep and sometimes moves to the left BUT he so has the potential to bag a goal a game and did do it earlier this season when he went on a run of scoring for both United and England so please Rooney START IT AGAIN! Its the most crucial part of the season. We can't heap too much pressure on Ronaldo because when we play vs Liverpool and Chelsea and when Mascherano and Essien stick to him like glue and double man mark him he will not be able to have so many opportunites to score like he did vs Derby and we need others to step up and score instead of him! If Rooney and Ronaldo and Tevez can score regularly we will not have a problem with doing the double!

I can feel it too, I mean it's time for Rooney to perform what he does best...
I have yet to see him on scoring spree, it's still not too late to start it now before it ends. Rooney should start scoring to strike a scoring balance not Ronaldo scoring more then half of what each player score...
