Reactions To Victory Over Blackburn

Reactions To Victory Over Blackburn

1. A month ago today Manchester United were five points behind Manchester City at the top of the table. The blues’ had a goal difference superior to ours by 13. We are now five points clear at the top with just one goal difference, with us now having scored more than them. By the time [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Fulham

1. What was clear from the very start of the game was that Manchester United were far superior to Fulham. The only question was whether we were going to be able to break them down, with Martin Jol setting them up 11 men behind the ball for large chunks of the game. Ahead of kick-off [...]

What Athletic Bilbao Defeat Means

For the first time since the 2001-2002 season, Manchester United will not play in a cup final, after losing to Athletic Bilbao over both legs. The Spaniards were just better than us. Much better than us in fact. It makes a mockery of Sir Alex Ferguson’s comments last month about how good this current squad [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Spurs

Reactions To Victory Over Spurs

1. We needed to win yesterday and we did. There would have been no shame in drawing or even losing to the third best team in the country away from home but, with City winning on Saturday, we really couldn’t afford to drop any points. The pressure that was on the team ahead of kick-off [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Norwich

Reactions To Victory Over Norwich

1. Days like yesterday have the potential to win you or lose you the title. When it’s 1-1 with 90 minutes played after a lacklustre second half you’re thinking it’s a day that could lose you the title. It doesn’t matter that Norwich have performed so well this season, sitting in 8th place despite getting [...]

Reactions To Draw Against Chelsea

Reactions To Draw Against Chelsea

1. At the start of the day I’d have taken a point at Stamford Bridge. We never win there, regardless of which team goes in to the game in better form, so a draw is a decent enough result. Don’t forget that City lost there a few weeks ago, so despite some of their drab [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Arsenal

Reactions To Victory Over Arsenal

1. After the man that should have been sent off for a nasty stamp won and scored a match winning penalty in injury time for Manchester City, you had to wonder whether today was going to be our day. There had been plenty of talk of “revenge” from Arsenal players ahead of kick-off, in reference [...]

Reactions To Victory Over City

Reactions To Victory Over City

1. Well, that was piss easy, wasn’t it? Hmm. What should have been a walk in the part for United following the first half was worryingly more difficult than it needed to be, but we got the result and that’s all that matters. United have knocked our local rivals, our noisy neighbours, and current holders, [...]

Quick Reactions To Newcastle Defeat

1. Back to back defeats for Manchester United against teams we should not be losing to. Blackburn have been woeful this season and Newcastle have had a pretty poor record at home. We are of course missing important players but that isn’t a good enough excuse for not getting the wake up call we should [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Wigan

Reactions To Victory Over Wigan

1. How do you make hard work out of beating Wigan? Change your team around and play everyone out of position. I was looking forward to a late Christmas present in the form of United blowing Wigan out of the water, like usual, then the manager had to go and spoil it all. Carrick, our [...]

Quick Reactions To United Victory Over Fulham

Quick Reactions To United Victory Over Fulham

1. For whatever reason, Craven Cottage has been a difficult place for United to get a result in recent years. Tonight we more than made up for that, thrashing Fulham 5-0 without even looking like we were trying hard. This was the form of the start of the season again, blowing the opposition out of [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Wolves

Reactions To Victory Over Wolves

1. Well that was just the kind of performance we needed following the devastating result in Basel this week. We passed the ball around well and at long last put away a good number of the chances we created. Only Swansea have a worse away record than Wolves though and after playing them, it is [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Villa

Reactions To Victory Over Villa

1. So we’re barely in December and we’ve already won as many games away as we had done all of last season. Whilst the scoreline meant we had a nervy ending to the game, it was a convincing performance that was worthy of victory. Whilst I don’t think dominating a team in the top half [...]

Quick Reactions To Victory Over Everton…

Quick Reactions To Victory Over Everton…

1. What we wanted to see today was a reaction to last weekend’s disaster. A 1-0 win at Goodison Park, a ground we haven’t won at since 2007, is a good result. Of course we all wanted to see United come out and rip Everton apart, the way we did Bolton and Arsenal earlier this [...]
