Manchester United on a roll!

The football season is only three matches old.

My team, Manchester United have scooped the awards for both manager and player of the month after the club's perfect start to the Premiership season.

Sir Alex Ferguson has been named the Barclays manager of the month for August and Ryan Giggs, 32, has won the player of the month prize.

During August, United beat Fulham, Charlton and Watford, scoring 10 goals in those three league matches.

Ryan Giggs, despite playing over 600 games, has never won the monthly award before.

I hope United keep up the good form and if they do we may be celebrating again next May.

In 1999 United won a magnificent and unique treble when they won The Premiership, The FA Cup and the European Cup. This has never been done before or since by any other British team.

It is a bit early to set out such high aims but things are definitely looking good so far.
