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? Rightly or wrongly, many have criticised United this season, mainly due to the fact that they’ve not exactly set the league alight, coupled with how frequently they [...]

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. I can’t think of any other player of his quality and reputation whose performances vary from such a wide range. [...]

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 [...]

5 Things We Learned: Fulham 0-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Roo good to be true Wayne Rooney is back, big time. With Robin van Persie largely taking all the credit and limelight this season, coupled with several infuriating and niggling injuries for the Scouser, Rooney’s come in for a lot more criticism than even he is used to. Some of that [...]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 2-0 West Bromwich Albion

By Chris Mortlock 1. We can still keep clean-sheets So that’s what a clean sheet feels like. Twenty-eight goals conceded and just four clean-sheets in twenty games isn’t exactly Championship winning form, is it? Or is it? The table doesn’t lie! The ‘you score three, we’ll score four‘ mentality seems to be a winning one [...]

5 Things We Learned: Swansea City 1-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. No 1 at Christmas It’s a familiar sight. Manchester United, top of the tree at Christmas. It’s been far from pretty so far this season; we’ve had some ups and downs. We’ve been unlucky with injuries and we’ve certainly ridden our luck at times, but traditionally we’ve grinded out results and [...]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 3-1 Queens Park Rangers

By Richard Evans 1.Welbeck not wide With Antonio Valencia and Nani both missing the game through injury, Sir Alex opted to deploy Danny Welbeck on the wing, clearly hoping his pace and directness would open up QPR. However as has been the case on a number of previous occasions, Welbeck was largely anonymous, and every [...]

5 Things We Learned: Chelsea 2 – 3 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Time to party like it’s 1999 Sir Alex said once we acquired Robin van Persie in the summer that he had a talented corps of strikers, a group that reminded him (as it did some fans) of our treble winning season in ’99. I actually think it’s even better. Andy Cole, [...]
