5 Things We Learned: Arsenal 0-0 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Better, but room for improvement MOST reports I read and comments I’ve heard since the game, predictably, centred on how it was a classic, lifeless, 0-0 draw. I disagree.

Match Report: Real Sociedad 0-0 Manchester United

By Lee Savery. Manchester United secured a point in a bore draw in Spain but remain top of group A.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 1-2 Manchester City

By Chris Mortlock 1. Phil Jones: The only positive If there’s something we’ve learned about Phil Jones since he arrived from Blackburn in 2011, it’s how versatile he is.

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.

5 Things We Learned: Blackburn Rovers 0 Manchester United 2

By Thomas Doyle 1. Keep calm and pass it on As Manchester United searched for that all-important goal at Ewood Park on Monday night, an electronic billboard flashed the message ‘Keep calm and pass it on’, which is exactly what United did.
