Wigan 20/11/10

Rooney's Return. A warm but conditional welcome for Wayne Rooney following his controversial and very public contract negotiations. A poor first half was saved just before the break by a rare Patrice Evra goal. When Rooney came on in a double substitution with Paul Scholes in the second half, United went on the front foot. This was more to do with Paul Scholes's presence combined with Wigan having two sent off in a matter of minutes. Hernandez sneaked on the pitch as a later sub almost unnoticed and rose to head in a second goal from a great cross from Rafael. Considering all the fuss around Rooney, it was these two young players who showed skill and determination.

Spurs 30/10/10

Very good game of football by two very attractive teams. Spurs look good in all positions and United started to look assured and solid for the first time this season. Nani was the biggest threat and the main talking point. He was busy the whole match, setting up Vidic's header, plenty of penetrating runs and the cheeky tap in goal certainly got tongues wagging. It happened right in front of me, and while I have the perfect angle for most of the drama, for the actual tap in itself, I was looking the other way. Such is life.

West Brom 16/10/10

Javier Hernandez's first start in the Premier League at Old Trafford. He got down on his knees to prayer before the kick off. It must have worked, he scored within five minutes. He perhaps should have got down to prayer before the start of the second half too.

Liverpool 19/09/10

Dimitar Berbatov's hat-trick was the star of the show in a 3-2 win for United. Berbatov's scissor-kick second goal and the unexpected comback from Liverpool made for a nail biting second half. Berbatov's winner ensured he is safely embeded in United folklore. All five goals feature in this six minute video.

Stoke City 09/05/2010

The final game of the season and the crescendo of the MUST campaign to drive the Glazers out. Old Trafford was swamped with Green and Gold and the whistles were blown on the Glazers tenure at the end of a comfortable 4-0 over Stoke City, but a disappointment as Chelsea were busy thumping Wigan 8-0 to take the league title. Giggs was regal in his performance on the day, sadly the one goal that I didn't capture was his.

Chesea 03/04/10

Footage from the Premiership clash with Chelsea. First time I've filmed a United loss. Didn't fancy looking through what I filmed. At least the footage makes the effort look better than it felt at the time.

Liverpool 21/03/2010

LUHG left on the back burner for this one as Old Trafford welcomed the old foe, and there were certain rituals and traditions to attend to. A game of total involvement from the stands, I've never known as many 'man on' cries in one game in my life. I wonder if SKY would have a stat for the games with the most 'man on' shouts?

Only had 26 minutes battery life on my camera for this one, which in one way meant I could get much more involved in the game, but in another way meant I didn't get one single 'man on' shout on tape. I got both United goals though. Double bad news for Liverpool, the little boy singing at the end means that this rivalry is embedded for generations to come.

Milan 10/03/10

Video from an extraordinary night in the Champions League. All the emotion of David Beckham's return, the LUHG show of colours and an incredible 4-0 win over the old nemisis means that this video is a bit of an epic to fit it all in. I apologise in advance, but it's worth a full watch if you have the stamina, the moment at the end when Beckham picks up and wears the green and gold scarf was worth a slow build up I thought.

West Ham 23/02/2010

Had a bet on a 4-0 vitory for United. Took the bet at 9-1. With the clock running out and United 3-0 up, Paul Scholes beat three men, charged in to the box, and there he was, clean in for his 100th Premier League goal, to win our bet, it had to be... over the bar.

A sea of green and gold scarves to watch this one, Rooney's first goal is a counter-attack classic and it was Ref Alan Wiley's first visit to Old Trafford since Fergie had blasted him as too unift to ref. Not that the fans would dream of reminding him of that.

Hull City 23/01/2010

The fans were in protesting mood at this game, unfurling banners and singing anti-Glazer songs. On the pitch meanwhile, the game will be remembered for Wayne Rooney's four goals. Two of which I got on camera here.

No music overdub on this video, just straight forward live action with the sound of the crowd.
