Back to back big wins!
What a difference a week makes! United and all at Old Trafford are feeling very much better about life and the season ahead. after two important and crucial wins against Spurs and Manchester City within a few days of each other. In the midweek premier league tie at Old Trafford United looked sharper than they have for months as Tottenham were brushed aside by 2-1 with Marcus Rashford getting both goals. This was followed by victory on Saturday evening at Manchester City.
Home draw with Aston Villa shows the state of things...
The results this season, apart from the opening day trouncing of Chelsea, have been poor. Ole's record is looking worse than Jose's was when he was asked to leave last season. The youngsters performed ok in the narrow Europa League defeat last week but the club are heading for another poor season in the league and it is even more depressing when you see who is already 22 points ahead of United at the top of the table!
International break and then it all restarts...
After yet another weekend where the international break means no top flight fixtures, United will return to action at Bramall Lane on 24th November to take on impressive Sheffield United. This is followed by a trip to Astana in the Europa League and then two home matches in quick succession against Aston Villa and Spurs before the Manchester derby at the Etihad on 7th December. United are then at home again on General Election Day in the Europa League v AZ Alkmaar.
Things are getting better....
The results are getting better, the latest 3-0 win at Carrow Road over Norwich City followed on the heels of a win away in the Europa League and a well deserved draw with league leaders Liverpool at Old Trafford. Confidence is returning and OGS has hopefully turned the corner. Next up it is Chelsea away in the League Cup on Wednesday - kick off is 8.05pm.
Too good to go down....?
When I was 13 years of age at the end of rhe 1973-74 season Manchester United were relegated after a couple of torrid seasons but only six years after lifting the European Cup and seven years since their last league title. The club had lurched from pillar to post since the retirement of Sir Matt and the drop to the second division was somehow inevitable. The parallels between then and now are being documented across the internet but suffice to say despite winning the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League since Sir Alex's retirement the club have declined in the league and the current season is shaping up poorly. Liverpool and Manchester City are looking infinitely stronger than us at the moment.
Two disappointing 1-1 draws...
Ahead of the Thursday afternoon Europa League clash with AZ Alkmaar, Manchester United have had two hugely forgettable home draws against Rochdale in the Caraboa Cup and Arsenal in the Premier League. Neither game set the pulses rating and the opening day excitement following the 4-0 defeat of Chelsea now seems a million miles away. United look like a team who will finish in the middle of the table, the rebuilding work may take some time. The Europa League and the domestic cups probably offer the club their best chance of success this season. The top 4 looks a long way off never mind chasing down Liverpool and Manchester City...
It's looking a bit gloomy at Old Trafford
Manchester United were well beaten at West ham on Sunday and the performance from most of the players was not very good. They lacked spark and drive; they were second best in most departments to West Ham United who were good value for their 2-0 win. The sight of Manchester United fans leaving the away section of the ground before the final whistle spoke volumes, they had seen enough. The scrappy one nil win in the Europa league was hardly uplifting and it seems that the euphoria of the opening day's thrashing of Chelsea has long since evaporated. Ole is at the wheel, but needs to steer the troops in the right diection and get them playing to their abilities as soon as possible.
Pogba's penalty miss crucial in Molineux draw
A Paul Pogba penalty miss cost Manchester United dear, as they shared the spoils with Wolverhampton Wanderers in a 1-1 draw at Molineux in Monday evening's televised clash. The game also highlighted how detrimental VAR is proving to the live football experience.
Up and coming fixtures
After a couple of disappointing results in the Premier League and Champions League, United entertain West Ham United on Saturday evening in the 5.30 kick off. It is a game the red devils need to win to have any chance of competing for a top four finish. OGS seems to think 15 points from the last 6 league games will guarantee a top three spot, so there is everything to play for. After West Ham at Old Trafford, Manchester United head to Barcelona facing a difficult task in overturning a 0-1 reversal. But it has been done before.
United back in action after the international break...
United will return to action after the international break and attempt to quickly make amends for two defeats at Wolves in the FA Cup and against Arsenal in the Premier League. First up is the visit of Watford to Old Trafford on March 30th an then a quick return to Molineux to play Wolves in a league match. Barcelona visit Manchester in the Champions League on April 10th before West Ham come to Old Trafford and then United treavel out to Spain for the reurn leg v Messi & Co.
