Man Utd vs Southampton (Premier League): Man of the Match

I have lost count of the number of times when writing this blog, when I have frustratingly commented that United had once again missed opportunities to climb up to the top 4. Yesterday we had all hoped that it would be different. After all, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had named an unchanged side for a […]

Aston Villa vs Man Utd (Premier League): Man of the Match

Although Aston Villa are in the relegation zone and battling to stay in the Premier League, and United were unbeaten in their last 20 Premier League away games against Aston Villa, for the fourth Premier League game running, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still named an unchanged side. It’s the first time since 2006 that United have been […]

Under-Par United Still Too Good for Villa

1. Manchester United were not at their best against Aston Villa at Villa Park but they still managed to register a comfortable win. Another three goals scored and an important clean sheet were a couple of positives at the end of the match, and they should have scored more. Nevertheless, the team did not perform […]

Man Utd vs Sheffield United: Man of the Match

United played their first home game in over three months,  when Scott McTominay’s strike from distance had then sealed a deserved 2-0 victory for the Reds in the Manchester derby. Before the start, the Blades were only two points behind United in the Premier League table after losing 3-0 away to Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon and the […]

Man Utd v Man City – Man of the Match – Manchester is Red!

So once again the bookmakers got it all wrong. How could United, playing at home, be 4.5 to 1 outsiders to beat City, when City had already lost twice against United this season, losing in the Premier League and League Cup? Was it was because United had lost their last three home games against Manchester […]

Manchester is RED – United at the Double!

1. Martial’s goal for United is every manager’s dream. A move straight from the training ground. When you have a technical maestro like Fernandes playing for your team, then a manager can prepare those tactical free kicks. Bruno’s pass from the dead ball was sublime. He literally put it on a plate for Martial, although […]

United beat Chelsea For The Third Time This Season

1. United have generally played well and obtained results this season against top ten opposition. This was United’s third win against Chelsea this season and two of those came at Stamford Bridge, a stadium which for a long time going back to the peak of the Ferguson’s teams we seemed unable to perforate.  Credit to […]

United unable to break down a well-drilled Wolves side at Old Trafford

1. When you are against a side like Wolves which have played with the same system for two and a half years, have the players to play that system and have been so successful at it, you cannot be as disorganised and disjointed as United were in that first half of this match. Looking at […]

Man City v Man Utd – Man of the Match

So near yet so far. Wembley Stadium that is. United faced an uphill battle to reach the Carabao Cup showpiece at Wembley in March after their chastening 3-1 home defeat to Pep Guardiola’s men in the semi-final first leg three weeks ago. Having so many injuries to top players certainly did not help. Paul Pogba and Scott […]

United Stunned by Burnley at Home

1. These post-match articles have become really difficult. I am generally a very positive person but it’s hard to find any positives from this match, from a United perspective.  I got a lot of stick from fellow supporters after the article post-Liverpool match at the weekend, because I highlighted a will to battle it out […]
