5 Things We Learned: Bayer Leverkusen 0-5 Manchester United

By Shane Connaughton. 1. Manchester United’s best performance of the season This was by far United’s best performance of the season and given that it came against a team lying second in the Bundesliga behind Bayern Munich it makes it all the more impressive.

5 Things We Learned: Fulham 1-3 Manchester United

By Shane Connaughton. 1. United will be disappointed not to have gone out of sight It made a great change to a game in that United were cruising in to a 3-0 lead after only 22 minutes, rather than having to struggle to find their feet in the game. After Wayne Rooney slotted in the […]

Match Report: Manchester United 4-2 Bayer Leverkusen

By Lee Savery. Manchester United comfortably beat an average Bayer Leverkusen side to record their first win of this season’s Champions League.

By Nathan Thomas. 1. Young impresses, despite flaws He is fast becoming number one on most fans ‘he is isn’t good enough for United’ list, however after been ‘welcomed’ to twitter with a barrage of moronic abuse, Ashley Young will have done a lot to silence any doubters, momentarily at least, after an excellent display […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 3-0 Aston Villa

By Chris Mortlock 1. Not 19 Forever 34 games played, 27 wins, 78 goals scored. Not bad considering this is apparently one of Sir Alex’s weaker sides, eh?

5 Things We Learned: West Ham United 2-2 Manchester United

By Jason Freeman 1. Rooney’s wide-ranging performances When he plays well, he’s world class but when he has a bad game, as he did against West Ham on Wednesday night, he can be really awful.

United’s Wide Men In Poor Form

By Andy Field. Another successful season for United seems close… It looks like we are going to win our 20th league title (*touches every possible wooden item within reach*) and the league has to be the main priority at the start of each season. It is the barometer of who is the best team in […]

The Tony V Situation

By Danny Armstrong. Antonio Valencia was born to do what he does. Impeccably clad in long-sleeved shirt tucked neatly in to pristine white shorts, he embodied the ethos of a Manchester United winger: beat the man, get to the line, cross the ball. His deft close ball control and an always reliable end product brought […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 2-2 Chelsea

By Matthew Jones 1. Robin reliant running on empty A few weeks ago, I praised him for his comments claiming he did not want to be rested ahead of the Norwich game, having received a knock in the 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers, but Robin van Persie is looking fatigued. I commend him for […]
