Five scores of Manchester United in the same football game.
Before Saturday's butchery of Cardiff should be all the way back to Alex Ferguson's afskedskamp to find similar holding.
However, with Ole Gunnar Solskjær as the replacement for the sacked José Mourinho delivered storklubben the champagne-football of the year's maximum match.
Nordmandens drømmedebut has echoed throughout Europe, and particularly in Norway will be written, of course, bead up and down on the Solskjærs formidable start on the second chapter of the United life. It is christmas time, and it is Solskjær-time.
The former FCK-star Brede Hangeland is one of many who have put the words on the landsmandens first day as United boss. It happens in a column for the Norwegian TV2.
- the Result did not come by itself. It came as a result of an almost incomprehensible transformation of the United team. It is less than a week ago that the team was played out and ridiculed at Anfield. Of course Liverpool are a different scale than Cardiff, but United's entrance to the fight could not be more unlike José Mourihos fodboldfilosofi, writes Hangeland.

He reached to play against Solskjær, when the FCK was in the Champions League group with United in 2006. And later in his career has Hangeland met the English team numerous times as a Premier League player for Fulham.
Here he had to repeatedly try to shut down an offense that was once known as one of the planet's most feared, but in recent seasons have been different, merciful, to take care of. Right up until yesterday.
- In the game with the ball, it was clear that Solskjær had indpisket the importance of using few touches. At the same time, were the players instructed to take a forward-looking race. All of this involves a greater risk in the game than that, José Mourinho was willing to accept. But Solskjær dare. Solskjær instructed. The players responded. And Solskjær has won, writes Hangeland.
He stresses that it is too early to pass judgement on Solskjær after just a single match, but Hangeland notice to the former Molde trainer managed to get brought the crew potential up to the surface again.
The momentum, they must now try to maintain. The next challenge will be meeting with danskerklubben Huddersfield 2. christmas day. At home at Old Trafford.
