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 […]

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.

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.

By Piers Barber Manchester United are in the midst of their most depressing run of form for years, but Tuesday’s Cardiff game may well turn out to be one of the most joyous Old Trafford occasions of the season so far. Here are four reasons why: 1. The return of the baby-faced assassin A whole […]

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, […]

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

By Piers Barber 1. Fletcher is a great example for the rest of the squad to follow Poor old Darren Fletcher. During the months he has sat out with injury in recent years, the Scottish midfielder must have dreamed of one day lining up alongside Old Trafford’s finest talent once again. Instead, he will have […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 0-1 Newcastle United

By Matthew Jones 1. Turning on the team and the manager will not solve our problems WITH David Moyes and his team embracing a new era at Manchester United, there is an unfamiliar feeling surrounding the club – fear.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 0-1 Everton

By Matthew Jones 1. The #MoyesOut mob are morons THERE’S no point pretending that nothing’s wrong but let’s not go overboard.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 1-0 Arsenal

By Matthew Jones 1. Van Persie’s celebration I GOT back to my car and upon tuning into 606 and TalkSport, one of the biggest talking points was should Robin van Persie have celebrated so animatedly against his former club. I travelled to the game with a Gooner supporting mate of mine and he had no […]

Match Report: Real Sociedad 0-0 Manchester United

By Lee Savery. Manchester United secured a point in a bore draw in Spain but remain top of group A. After a first half with hardly any openings for either side, the away side finally started to create some opportunities.

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 […]
