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. [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Sunderland

1. United played some fantastic football at times on Saturday, displaying exquisite one touch passing and lightening fast attacks, in a game that deservedly saw us pick up all three points. Like so many games before though, we just didn’t kill it off, despite creating so many clear cut chances. It would be wrong to [...]

Reactions To Victory Over City

Reactions To Victory Over City

1. Like a lot of fans, I would have happily taken a point from Sunday’s game ahead of kick-off, with City having not lost at home in the league for two years and us just needing to draw to stay top of the league. With ten minutes played it looked as though we were going [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Reading

Reactions To Victory Over Reading

1. Ahead of kick-off I suggested that United give us a weekly surprise these days, whether it’s because of the chosen starting line-up, the formation, the tactics, or the events of the game. The surprise for yesterday was conceding three goals in the first half, as well as scoring four of our own. Seven goals [...]

Reactions To Victory Over QPR

Reactions To Victory Over QPR

1. Whenever a side sacks their manager you have to worry about what impact it will have on their players ahead of the next game. Mark Hughes, who has had a dismal time at QPR, was sacked before the game and new manager Harry Redknapp was watching from the stands. “There’s only one Harry Redknapp!” [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Aston Villa

Reactions To Victory Over Aston Villa

1. After picking up maximum points against the likes of Liverpool, Newcastle, Chelsea and Arsenal, ahead of the game I said I hoped that Aston Villa wouldn’t be a banana skin for us. It’s so typical of United to win the difficult games then throw it away against someone they should be battering. Villa have [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Arsenal

Reactions To Victory Over Arsenal

1. Ahead of the game yesterday I said that Ferguson has worked out how to beat Arsenal and, for the most part, Wenger has failed to find a way to counter our tactics. The Arsenal team that came to Old Trafford was one of the worst I can remember in a decade or more. On [...]

Chelsea Manager Talking Nonsense

Chelsea Manager Talking Nonsense

An incorrect match-defining decision was witnessed at Stamford Bridge on Sunday which likely had a huge impact on the result. Manchester United only won the game 3-2 but if Fernando Torres has been sent off for kicking Tom Cleverley in the chest in the first half, when Chelsea were still losing 2-1, who knows how [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Stoke

Reactions To Victory Over Stoke

1. Ahead of kick-off I said that Stoke at home was a fixture United had to be winning, particularly with Chelsea making light work of the likes of Arsenal and Spurs away already this season. To have lost two games already is fairly disappointing but thankfully Chelsea are the only side to make us pay [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Newcastle

Reactions To Victory Over Newcastle

1. That was the best United performance for months. Newcastle had lost one game at home in 2012 and today we bossed them. We started the game brilliantly, at long last, and even when Newcastle started to come back in to the game, we managed to stop them from scoring. The ten minutes leading up [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Liverpool

1. Another trip to Anfield, another dire Manchester United performance. I’m not entirely sure what it is about that place but we haven’t put in a good performance there for years. Even when Liverpool went down to ten men we didn’t look better than them, it just seemed to even things out. We conceded possession [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Galatasaray

1. Whilst it wasn’t a brilliant performance from United last night, it was important that we sorted out our poor home form from the Champions League last season, so I’m more than happy with the three points. We’ll have tougher opposition in Braga still to come but the win takes the pressure off the players [...]
