Fulham 3 United 0

Fulham is a tough place to go and they usually give us a tough game. However, very few people would have predicted that they would totally turn us over and beat us with such ease. This result might be highly damaging and has been on the cards for a while, but that did not help to ease the pain of a fairly shameful performance. Read more

United 0 Villa 1

At 5pm on Saturday things were good, most notably because Chelsea had let in three goals and dropped two points at home, and also because United’s teamsheet had three defenders on it for the first time in a while.

West Ham 0 United 4

London aways can be pretty poor sometimes, with all the hangers on and corporates getting tickets from the club. Somehow West Ham is not as fashionable to the staff at AIG etc, and so the tickets tend to stay in the hands of proper Reds who are more interested in getting behind the team than lunch on the Fulham Road beforehand. Perhaps that is a reflection of West Ham’s reputatation and that the trip to Newham is still seen as intimidating rather than corporate and a nice day out. That may not be too true anymore- there was not a hint of trouble and their atmosphere was pretty dire too- but for many Reds the bottles flying over from the upper tier and the rucks in the alleyways outside are not too distant a memory.  Read more
