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. [...]

By David Gee. (@DavidGee26) No, you’re not dreaming, Manchester United really did end up strolling to a rare routine victory.

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.

5 Things We Learned: Stoke City 2-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Juan Mata is not the solution The signing of Juan Mata is not going to magically fix our problems – I think most intelligent United fans know this.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 2-0 Cardiff City

By Piers Barber 1. Mata has given the entire club a much needed lift The signing of Juan Mata has made it a giddy few days for Manchester United fans.

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, [...]
