Football 10/11: vs West Ham (away)

Just like the Blackpool game, another stunning comeback that may be far more important than points gained against bigger clubs. United weren’t even playing that badly throughout the first hour of the match, conceding to two penalties after all, but there was a … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Marseille (CPL, Last 16, Home)

Job done, but United made it much harder then it should have been. As is typical in these kind of contests, it’s the second goal that is the real decider. United got their noses in front early and it was … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Arsenal (FA Cup)

Interesting game, one that matches the pattern of the last few years between Manchester United and Arsenal. They play their passing game, press, have most of the possession. We play the defensive minded, counter-attacking game. We win. They lose. I really … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Chelsea

What can I say? I’m disappointed, for many reasons. We placed too deep in the second half, always a bad choice against Chelsea. We failed to exploit a very dodgy looking Chelsea right flank. We didn’t make enough chances to really … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Wigan (away)

I didn’t see it, being occupied by other matters. Suffice to say, United have never had a troubling time with Wigan, with 13 straight wins. Hernandez did well, Rooney got on the scoresheet and Fabio scored his first goal for … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Marseille (CPL, Last 16)

Not a great game for either side, though I think the French champions will be the happier having left behind the threat of away goals. The 4-5-1 formation just did not do the business for most of the game, the … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Man City (home)

A big, big result, especially coming off our first defeat of the season. The week break really helped with that I’ll wager. United continue to best their counterparts from down the road and long may that continue. It was a … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Aston Villa (home)

Boom. Rooney’s back. Excellent to see him get the goals. So much has been said about Rooney, by me and others, but if he can keep this going, it’s all good. Route One football at its best for the first, … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs Birmingham (home)

Considering the way that Birmingham essentially stole a draw out from under us, with one of the most illegal goals in the history of the sport, in the previous fixture this season, I am absolutely delighted that we gave them … Continue reading

Football 10/11: vs West Brom (away)

Controversial game, obviously. Chris Foy had a shocker, a performance to be ashamed off. West Brom should have had a penalty in the first, and Neville a red card. After that, he seemed to fall into the common trap of awarding … Continue reading
