5 Things We Learned: West Ham United 1-1 Manchester United

By Alan Brennan 1) Poor defensive organisation Coming into the game it was evident that one of the biggest threats West Ham posed was from set pieces, however we looked disorganised in our set up throughout and struggled to deal with the threat, conceding numerous chances.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 3-0 Cambridge United

By Ashley Turner 1) The boss is taking this competition seriously Before the game, Louis van Gaal was asked whether the FA Cup is the priority this season. He replied by saying it is now, hinting at a title push being out of reach despite 15 league games left to play for. This attitude has […]

5 Things We Learned: Cambridge United 0-0 Manchester United

By Ashley Turner 1) What does Herrera have to do to start? Our Spanish gem has started just two games since his Man-of-the-Match display against Hull City at Old Trafford on November 29.

By Jason Freeman 1) Tactical change pays off… again! There has been a lot of debate over why Van Gaal continues to use a 3-5-2, Van Gaal has given a few explanations as to why he’s sticking with it. One of those is that it provides a better balance but I’m not sure if that […]

By David Gee (@DavidGee26) It was a typical away game at the Britannia; wet, windy and physical.

5 Things We Learned: Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 Manchester United

By Jason Freeman 1) Tale of two halves That old football cliché again, but it was. The first half was in my opinion our best away performance of the season and we really should have put one of the chances away if not more but it wasn’t to be. The second half, Spurs made some […]

5 Things We Learned: Aston Villa 1-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1) Happy hunting ground So the six game winning streak went out the window with Saturday’s 1-1 draw, but it’s now seven games unbeaten for Louis van Gaal’s red and white army.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 3-0 Liverpool

By David Gee (@DavidGee26) Few results give the United Faithful greater pleasure than a victory over Liverpool and on Sunday the Red half of Manchester enjoyed a welcome win against the Reds from Merseyside.

5 Things We Learned: Southampton 1-2 Manchester United

By David Gee (@DavidGee26) A fifth win in a row and the momentum is building. United haven’t played well in recent weeks but they’ve got the job done, albeit with a fair share of fortune. The game at St Mary’s mirrored the tie at the Emirates a couple of weeks ago in many ways, with […]
