Rooney and De Gea trudge off the pitch in disappointment

A heart-wrenching, numbing and disappointing end to the Barclays Premier League Season 2011-12 and that is what anyone connected to Manchester United in one way or another felt. We ended last season experiencing the high of having won another title and not just any title, it was THE title that edged us beyond arch-rivals and enemies Liverpool in the overall English league title stakes. We started this season bouncing on the high of that achievement but ended it with utter disappointment. Read the full story

City semi final derby is NOT the end of the journey


There’s a dangerous tendency amongst football fans – of every club, to put the cart before the horse and the Manchester United ones are no different. If it’s been heard once it’s been heard a thousand times. “The FA Cup Semi Final derby on Saturday is the Final with the winner certain to lift the Cup at the end of May” REALLY? Is that not being a little presumptuous? Cup Finals have been riddled with underdogs coming out on top for over a century.

No guarantee but history points to United


It’s an absolute given that history can never be guaranteed to repeat itself but it can certainly give some encouraging signals. Manchester United has remained unbeaten in the Premier League since that controversial 2-1 defeat against eventual champions Chelsea at Old Trafford last April and have managed to finish 2010 with that 1-1 draw at St Andrews as the only team in England yet to lose a Premiership game this season. In addition, United have lost 16 points from their eight drawn matches so far, 5 fewer than  Arsenal, 6 less than Manchester City and 7 than Chelsea. Not a bad advantage to take into the New Year.

A United class display sees off Sunderland


Just two weeks after Manchester United’s Dimitar Berbatov failed to make the starting line up in the top of the table clash with Arsenal, he returned with a typically stylish performance. As United moved the ball around with relish he snapped up his first chance when Ryan Giggs played in Wayne Rooney and his perfect cross was headed in by the Bulgarian.

United dominated without adding to their score and there was relief for the home fans when Berbatov's strike on 57 minutes went in off Sunderland defender Anton Ferdinand. “The first half was the highlight” said manager Sir Alex Ferguson “some of the football was fantastic and we could have scored four or five. We were pretty economical with our performance in the second half” he told Sky Sports
