5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 2-1 Everton

By Jason Freeman 1) De Gea – match winning goalkeeper The only regular starter to come out of last season with any credit, he saved us many times from drawing or losing. At the end of last season his efforts were recognised by both the players and the fans as he picked up both first […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 3-0 Olympiakos

By David Gee. (@DavidGee26) In a game that may unfortunately prove to be a season highlight, Moyes’ men overturned a two goal first leg deficit to dump the Greek champions out of Europe and progress to the quarter-final stage with a convincing-turned-nervy victory. A Van Persie hat trick, with two goals before half-time added to […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 0-1 Everton

By Matthew Jones 1. The #MoyesOut mob are morons THERE’S no point pretending that nothing’s wrong but let’s not go overboard. Manchester United rarely lose at home but already we’ve lost twice at home this season, as well as two draws, in seven outings at Old Trafford. Last night’s loss was already a fourth defeat […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 3-2 Stoke City

By Nathan Youd. 1. Nani frustrates once more Nani again frustrated the fans at Old Trafford today with a poor performance. The Portuguese winger always seems to do the hard work and get himself into good positions before failing miserably at providing a decent cross. The wide man frustrated so much today he even received […]

5 Things We Learned: Sunderland 1-2 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Adnan Januzaj WOW! What a debut. Before the game the biggest debate was likely to have been ‘how the bloody hell do you pronounce his name?’. By the end the biggest debate was whether he could end up playing for England one day. Januzaj’s two goals were sublime. The volley, which […]

5 Things We Learned: Liverpool 1-0 Manchester United

By Richard Evans 1. RVP left isolated Despite conceding inside four minutes United responded well and could easily have levelled had the ball fallen in just the right place.

5 Things We Learned: Arsenal 1-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Classy Arsenal The issue of the guard of honour, whether Arsenal would provide one, and the return of the former hero turned villain Robin van Persie dominated much of the build-up to Sunday’s game. Ultimately, it passed with the minimum of fuss. The club and its players did Arsenal proud. Why […]

5 Things We Learned: Real Madrid 1-1 Manchester United

By Chris Mortlock 1. Evans justified his place in the starting XI I, like many, expected Vidic to start alongside Ferdinand at the Bernabéu; his experience alone warranted a place in the staring XI – especially in a game of such magnitude. Listening to Sir Alex ahead of kick-off, though, it made sense to start […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 2-1 Southampton

By Chris Mortlock 1. Kagawa is slowly starting to adapt It’s fair to say that Shinji Kagawa has struggled to adapt to English football. Although the Bundesliga and the Premier League are similar in terms of style of play, the English game is a tad more physical and that’s what the Japanese playmaker has struggled […]

5 Things We Learned: Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Defending as a team was superb All Andre Villas Boas and my Spurs supporting mates talked about last night was how they dominated possession and had 23 shots. Well, this must be the first game in a long time between the two sides that Spurs fans have been able to cheer […]

Stability The Key For Title Hunting Reds

By Nathan Thomas. Robin van Persie’s sumptuous injury-time winners against West Ham United on Saturday was, if you think about it, a microcosm of United’s brilliantly fluid attacking play that we have borne witness to so far this season. Equally, it could be attested that the entire game could be categorised as a microcosm of […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester City 2-3 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Robin Van Persie is worth his weight in gold 10 minutes before the end, I told a friend in the pub that Fergie needed to take off van Persie, who in all honesty, had a poor game. The only thing of note he’d really done in the game up until then […]
