Community Shield leaves me hungry for more

The WORLD CUP FINAL was less than a month ago, right?
So why was I so thrilled for today's televised COMMUNITY SHIELD match between CHELSEA and MANCHESTER UNITED?

Probably because the Community Shield always signifies the *start* of the season, not the conclusion.

United were the best side today, running out deserved 3-1 winners thanks to goals from Antonio Valencia and substitutes Javier Hernandez (a hilarious debut goal -- he kicked the ball off his own face and into the goal) and Dimitar Berbatov (deep in stoppage time).
Salomon Kalou scored Chelsea's goal in the second half.
So, onto next weekend and the start of the PREMIER LEAGUE season.

The Community Shield has lived up to its role as the first taste of the season to come. I am hungry for more.
