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. Sustained periods of meaningless, un-penetrative possession were interrupted by incisive, high tempo counter-attacks from the home side who ran out fairly comfortable victors in the end.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 4-1 Aston Villa

By David Gee. (@DavidGee26) The sun was out at Old Trafford and for subscribers to pathetic fallacy the result and the mood matched the weather in the end.

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: Manchester United 1-2 West Bromwich Albion

By Jason Freeman 1. Moyes needs to learn to manage squad better Having decided not to use the squad much prior to last weekend’s defeat at City, Moyes chose to make 8 changes for the Liverpool game in midweek which came as no surprise given it was a League Cup tie and the players selected […]
