Manchester United v QPR
Daley Blind, given a starting debut by Louis van Gaal, was thrilled to get his Manchester United career off to a positive start.
"I was really excited before the game,” he revealed.
"It was a really good debut which I really enjoyed and the fans were amazing. Everything has gone well. I had a good week of training and everyone has been really nice and open, and given me a great welcome.
"I felt at home straight away." added the Dutch midfielder.
"It is a new team and it can be difficult at first but I think we did well." said the World Cup star on mufc.com.
"Everybody is feeling good and everyone helped each other when we lost the ball. It's important that we do that as quickly as possible when we lose it.
"That is the manager's philosophy. We did a good job as a team. This is a new beginning and we're looking forward to the next game."
A bitterly disappointed Harry Redknapp admitted it was hard to watch his side go 3-0 down before half time.
"Obviously it was a really disappointing result for us,” the R's boss told www.qpr.co.uk.
“To be honest, I was sitting there after 20 minutes or so thinking we were bang in the game, because they were struggling to break us down despite having lots of possession.
“They had a lot of the ball, but we were getting behind the ball well and restricting them to very little opportunities.
“To come in 3-0 down at half-time – when they’d only had four shots on goal – was really tough to take."
“I’ve been here before when my keeper has had to make save after save after save, but that wasn’t the case in that first half.”
