Tactical Analysis: Manchester United 0-3 Liverpool

By George Lomax. Like probably 99% of the people who attended the game on Sunday, I came away from Old Trafford thinking we were lucky to get away with a 3-0 defeat. The fact is we were thoroughly outclassed by a better side on Sunday, and I don’t think even 1% of United fans could disagree […]

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 0-3 Liverpool

By Matthew Jones 1. Outfought, outthought, outclassed ANOTHER defeat at home. Another weak, toothless, unimaginative, abject performance from a team bereft of belief, confidence and unity. Another nail in David Moyes’ coffin? But this wasn’t any ordinary defeat that we’ve been accustomed to seeing this season. This wasn’t successive home defeats to Everton and Newcastle. […]

5 Things We Learned: West Bromwich Albion 0-3 Manchester United

By David Gee. (@DavidGee26) No, you’re not dreaming, Manchester United really did end up strolling to a rare routine victory. Following a scrappy and rather nervy opening at the Hawthorns, Manchester United grew in confidence as the tie went on and left the midlands comfortable victors. The Red Devils’ opener from the head of Phil […]

5 Things We Learned: Olympiakos 2-0 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. A spineless performance THIS season has been very up and down – mainly down. Actually, scratch that. It’s been all down. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve enjoyed watching United this season. On the opening day against Swansea. The 3-1 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage, […]

5 Things We Learned: Crystal Palace 0-2 Manchester United

By David Gee. (@DavidGee26) A largely uneventful affair in South East London finished with Manchester United returning to the North West with a rare but valuable three points. The champions’ form has left a lot to be desired since the turn of the year but after a resolute display from the Eagles (not dissimilar tactically […]

United’s First Champions League Knockout Round

By Piers Barber With its long and torturous winter break finally over, the Champions League is finally back with us, complete with Zlatan, Clive Tyldesley and gloriously pompous theme music. And this time, there’s none of that slightly dull group stage bit to pretend to enjoy. Now is the moment when one of the greatest […]

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. A draw, coupled with a resilient, late win for Liverpool at Fulham, stretches the Merseysiders’ lead over Manchester United in the ever […]

Singing Section Strike A Bum Note

By Matthew Jones HAVING ‘Your support is f******g s**t’ sung at you by boisterous away fans, on top of the already abject spectacles Manchester United fans have had to witness at Old Trafford this season, is contributing to the toughest period I’ve experienced as a Red. While supporters cannot of course do too much about […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 2-2 Fulham

By David Gee. (@DavidGee26) More dropped points in the once fortress of Old Trafford, the reds’ home increasingly becoming more a theatre of nightmares than dreams for David Moyes. Stunned silence greeted Darren Bent’s injury time equaliser, which has surely now consigned Manchester United to a season away from Europe’s elite. Here are five things […]
