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.

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.

5 Things We Learned: Chelsea 3-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. No heart, no passion I can handle losing. As a United fan I’ve not had to handle an awful lot of it in my lifetime, but I realise we can’t and won’t win every game. What I think has been and is the most demoralising aspect of this rapidly worsening season, [...]

Match Preview: Chelsea vs. Manchester United

By Piers Barber It is difficult to recall a time when a Manchester United side have travelled to Stamford Bridge with the same feeling of dread that will accompany them on their trip to London this weekend.
