Some United fans must become more objective


Please give me strength! I can understand how disappointment, frustration and yes, even bitterness can boil over soon after a defeat in a crucial game but surely, a little common sense and objectivity must also be part of the thinking. Let’s try to agree that Manchester United is not the perfect team this season and that certain areas need to be strengthened before it becomes the finished product that everyone yearns to see. Yet ask any United fan, any rival fan and any pundit who watched the first 45 minute performance at Stamford Bridge, try and put the events of the second period to one side, then tell me if the team is as bad as this UNITED FAN had to say on one of the  club forums.

It’s wide open now! Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat of Manchester United at Stamford Bridge will not help the Blues retain their title but it opens the door for Arsenal to take the initiative in what still appears to be a two horse title race. Yet it looked so different at the break. Wayne Rooney had given United a deserved lead when they were clearly dominating the game and gave the impression that Chelsea were going to find it difficult to get back into it in the second period. But that’s precisely what the reigning champions did, taking the game to United and totally controlling the middle of the park for long periods.
