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

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

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 [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Wigan

Reactions To Victory Over Wigan

1. In the newsletter I reflected on just how many times we’ve beaten Wigan 4 or 5 nil since our first ever match against them when they joined the Premier League in 2005. There were times yesterday when you had to doubt whether a 4-0 was on the cards but somehow, like we usually do [...]

Quick Reactions To United’s Victory Over Southampton

Quick Reactions To United’s Victory Over Southampton

1. Southampton had lost their opening two games of the season but had taken the lead twice against City at the Etihad, so they’re not total mugs. They took the lead twice against us too but this game was at their place. Despite an impressive opening ten minutes, with United playing some great football, we [...]

Reactions to defeat against Everton

1. So there we go, this season starts in the same fashion that last season ended. Not playing very well, some nice moments, no defenders and disappointment. In the newsletter ahead of the game I said dropping points at Everton wasn’t the end of the world. I imagined we could draw there, with a defeat [...]

Reactions To Defeat Against City

1. So, there we have it. Just like Manchester City, we’ve managed to throw away an eight point lead. To pick up four points from four games at this stage of the season is so un-United that I don’t really know what to say about it. What are we playing at? Last weekend’s game was [...]

Reactions To Everton Draw

1. When Manchester United are winning 4-2 at home with seven minutes remaining you assume the points are in the bag. There is always the possibility the opposition might be able to claw one more back but a team of United’s experience, at this stage and the season, can be relied upon to get the [...]

Reactions To Victory Over Villa

1. After dropping points against Wigan and seeing City batter Norwich 6-1, it was so important we went out and got a result against Villa. A scrappy 1-0 would have done but it was pleasing to see us go out and batter Villa to swing the momentum in our favour again. The second half performance [...]

Reactions To Defeat Against Wigan

1. We all know United do things the hard way but at no point did I think we would lose to Wigan yesterday. If not for dreadful decisions by the linesman at the weekend, Wigan would have beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but I underestimated their ability and the impact the sense of injustice from [...]

Reactions To Victory Over QPR

Reactions To Victory Over QPR

1. The latest of a long line of must-win games, we had to yet again overcome playing a team that had no other game plan than to stick all their players behind the ball and hope we couldn’t break them down. It doesn’t half make for a dull game of football. We got the three [...]

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 [...]
