5 Things We Learned: Everton 2–0 Manchester United

By David Gee. (@DavidGee26) Another all-to-frequent afternoon of disappointment that entailed an unwelcome microcosm of United’s season.

By Matthew Jones 1. The next big thing Adnan Januzaj is a star in the making. Manchester United fans have probably been excited about him since the start of the season. If you’re as much of a United fanatic as me, you’ve probably seen plenty of him from last season’s reserve and U18 games and […]

5 Things We Learned: Fulham 1-3 Manchester United

By Shane Connaughton. 1. United will be disappointed not to have gone out of sight It made a great change to a game in that United were cruising in to a 3-0 lead after only 22 minutes, rather than having to struggle to find their feet in the game. After Wayne Rooney slotted in the […]

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.
