5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 1-1 Southampton

By Jason Freeman 1. Poor substitutions cost United The main talking point after the game has been the substitutions, baffling to say the least when they were made and even more so after the game had ended. The first sub to be made was Giggs for Nani left me confused, it made no sense unless […]

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.

5 Things We Learned: Athletic Bilbao 2 Manchester United 1

By Jason Freeman. 1) Athletic Bilbao thoroughly deserved to go through There is no doubt that Athletic Bilbao were the better side in both legs and overall deserved to go through.
