United 2 Arsenal 1

The first big clash of the season was worrying many Reds pre-match. In fact I can rarely remember a game at home when so many people thought we would lose, and I can only assume that was based on a combination of our stumble at Burnley and Arsenal’s free-flowing and free-scoring football of late. However, United often need a game like this to kick start the season and announce their arrival in the title race, and hopefully this game was that. A goal down at half time, a strange atmosphere and questions being asked yet again about our ability to break through in the final third- but in typical stubborn United fashion we somehow took all three points.

Wigan 0 United 5

United have a very strong record playing at the JJB stadium, now the DW stadium, but have often had a much tougher game than the final score suggests. Last season, for example, the three points were very hard earned and it took everything out of the team to come away with a win late on.

Burnley 1 United 0

This was always going to be a tough fixture, but I never really thought we would lose it. Setting off at lunch time in a car of three Reds and 2 Burnley fans (including their most well known one) there was always the risk that the journey back would be hellish even if we drew, so you can imagine how bad it got after that result. But such is life I suppose! Read more

United 1 Birmingham 0

After a few very heavy seasons and numerous foreign ventures, this summer was a well earned rest both for players and supporters. I was glad to have a stretch without football, but that is not to say the opening day was not extremely exciting and welcomed. I have seen the reserves at Luton and the first team in the Community Shield already this season, but with terrible atmospheres and nothing really at stake they don’t really count. It was the game against Birmingham that announced ‘football is back’. Read more
