Isn't it great when the mighty get brought back down to earth?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United showed why they are the most famous club in football, as they outgrafted, outshone, and outsmarted League One minnows, Rochdale Hornets, in last night's Carabao Cup tie at Old Trafford, easily winning 5-3 on penalties.

The match finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, but the score does not reflect the massive gulf in class between the two teams, or the salaries commanded by their respective players.

Rochdale huffed and puffed, but, aside from the small consolation of scoring through 16-year-old schoolboy, Luke Matheson, there was nothing for the strugglers or their supporters to celebrate, and it was the more illustrious Kings of Football who left the pitch to uproarious cheering from their fans.

United boss, Solskjaer, said:

"A thoroughly commanding and convincing performance. We looked strong all over the pitch. We had it in the bag from the moment Daniel James blasted that final penalty into the back of that bulging net in front of the adoring Stretford End. United clearly are the biggest, best and most brutal football club in the world!"

Then he slunk off sheepishly, trying to ignore those who were chanting for him to be sacked.
