Thoughts On Newcastle Match And United’s Situation


Just a few observations to make….

(1)   It’s the passing stupid! Every time Man United lose or play badly the passing is dreadful, and therein lays the causality. I don’t think there’s anything more frustrating than watching, not just professional footballers, but those who are supposedly at the peak of the game not be able to play a pass 10 yards in order to be able to start an attacking move. This has been a feature at United for the past few years now, and it’s even more frustrating considering how good the passing had been in the 5-0 wins against Wigan and Fulham, and even QPR and Wolves.

I’m not trying to take anything away from Newcastle here, of course their pressing was great tonight (particularly when compared to ours), but we made them look like they had 15 players between their defence and attack.

Greatest United XI, Busby Babes and The Terminator


 

Goalkeepers and Defenders                                                 

 

So, another review is here, the good people at PR Genie have decided that more time and devotion shall be spent on my couch as I trawl through some obvious, some surprising,and some downright ridiculous candidates for the best Manchester United XI. In stark comparison to the otherwise impressive Rooney Goal Machine, the opening titles and graphics have a slight air of class about them, less Europa League, more Champions League perhaps. Loud classical music blares triumphantly with the overblown grandiosity of a late ‘90s SKY Sports advert. The basic format is from a competition invented by the club’s website in 2011 where fans vote on the best players for each position, based on what I’m guessing is a rigid 4-4-2 formation.

Giggs is a mere footballer NOT a moral crusader


Pardon me for venting but I must get something off my chest! As far as I’m concerned, I am a football fan NOT a moral crusader. Do I really care what a perfect family man Paul Scholes has been all his life? NO, because my huge admiration for him has completely revolved around his football exploits. Wayne Rooney is another example. Despite all his lurid off field headlines, that spectacular overhead match winning strike against Manchester City and the title clinching penalty at Blackburn were possibly the most exhilarating moments of the whole season.
