Reactions To Draw With West Ham

Reactions To Draw With West Ham

1. When you go behind twice in a game you can’t be too disappointed when you leave with a draw. United weren’t good enough to take all three points and as frustrating as that may be we should be content enough with taking something out of the game. City drew 0-0 there and Chelsea lost [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Stoke

1. The whispers that United had lost their bottle following the unjust defeat at the hands of Real Madrid have become louder and louder as the weeks have gone on. We went 2-0 up against Chelsea in the FA Cup, only to go on to be grateful to force a replay following an abysmal second [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Sunderland

1. Can you imagine being told in May that the next time we came to the Stadium of Light we would finish the game 18 points clear? I don’t think anything could have brightened our mood that day but it certainly would have helped. If there was to be any silver lining to the painful [...]

Picking Ourselves Up After Real Madrid Defeat

Picking Ourselves Up After Real Madrid Defeat

When United were drawn against Real Madrid in the Last 16 of the Champions League we knew we had a battle on our hands. Whilst the Spaniards have failed to impress in La Liga there is no hiding the fact they currently have one of the best managers and squads in European football. We may [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Norwich

1. Ahead of kick-off against Norwich there was the promise of extending our lead to 15 points clear at the top if we won. However, with Real Madrid to play on Tuesday, you had to wonder what sort of team Sir Alex Ferguson would go with. It was great to hear what an experienced side [...]

Quick Reactions To Victory Over QPR

Quick Reactions To Victory Over QPR

1. Having taken points off the three clubs below us over the past month, it would make sense to presume that QPR might offer something today. Thankfully, they didn’t. Harry Redknapp’s men seem resigned to the fact they are going to be relegated and offered very little. That’s not to take anything away from United, [...]

Reactions To The Draw With Real Madrid

Reactions To The Draw With Real Madrid

1. From about ten minutes in to yesterday’s game I was clock-watching at a rate I would usually expect in the last five minutes of a game, with United being dominated at the Bernabeu and Real Madrid looking as though they would score any minute. The defence were doing a decent enough job, David de [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Everton

1. No club has ever overturned a 12 points deficit with 12 games to go, which would make you think the title is ours this season, following our 2-0 win over Everton. Our 65 points from 26 games is a club record. As painful as last season was, you could argue that we are reaping [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Fulham

Reactions To Victory Over Fulham

1. United got the three points they deserved in what was a great game to watch at Craven Cottage. The first half in particular was end to end and by the time the final whistle went the woodwork had been hit almost ten times between both sides. It wasn’t the walk in the park we’d [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Southampton

Reactions To Victory Over Southampton

1. Another game at Old Trafford, another game that we were hanging on, but we got the win and restored our seven point lead. After Spurs scored that late equaliser in our last league game you wouldn’t have imagined we would have been straight back in to this position, so there are no complaints from [...]

Reactions To Draw With Spurs

1. Ahead of kick-off I would have taken a point from this game, something Rio Ferdinand confessed in his post-match interview, but it’s always going to be frustrating to concede with pretty much the last kick of the game. You’re left to the stew on the fact if they could have just held on for [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Liverpool

Reactions To Victory Over Liverpool

1. There we have it. United have beaten Liverpool home and away for the first time since 07/08. There was a huge gulf between the two sides at the start of the day, with United top of the league and Liverpool all the way down in 8th. Whilst Rodgers might claim there isn’t 24 points [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Newcastle

1. It doesn’t matter how many times we do it, winning games in the last minute feels fucking fantastic on every single occasion. To go behind three times, at home, was ridiculous and infuriating. Every time we clawed ourselves back in to the game we messed it up and let them take the lead again. [...]
