United put on another disjointed away display as Aston Villa did their claim to the number four slot no harm with a credible draw at Villa Park. There is a lot to say in the post mortem analysis, so let's get on with it. It was always going to be hard following an international break which [...]

I know, after being inactive for what is certainly the longest period of, well, inactiveness, this might be pushing it a bit. But it sure looks like the main period that was sucking the life out of my offline world has passed, and I shall be able to bring back the regularity that characterized this [.

A home game. Five goals banged in. The frustrations of last week should slightly be assuaged. But it won't, because the same Arsenal team lost to Villa yesterday.

Open thread folks: all links to streams, discussion on possible lineups, rants, frustration, optimism (blind and realistic), all go here.

It's early kick off time at the Emirates, and United's meeting with the Gunners couldn't have come at a better time. Arsenal have been in underwhelming form yes, I know, form matters little during a game of this magnitude while United have been kicking up a few gears in the league whilst also [..

First of all let me thank the majority of Americans for making a good decision. Hope's now in the air. So, I suppose, when I wake up tomorrow, I'll see my taxes halve, and my gas bills cut down a notch. Oh. Anyway, good to see a President who sounds intelligent. But enough of the political [...]

yada, yada yada... I don't write good post headings. And so it goes. Another void to fill. It's champions' league day today, although it doesn't involve us. It's also election day today in the country where I reside. Of course, I wouldn't want to use this platform to air my political views, but dear American [.

United completed a victory against giant killers Hull in, what could have been, emphatic fashion but for a second half where the team conceded two goals to lend some drama to the occasion. Fergie started with Anderson and the returning Carrick in central midfield, whilst Nani and Ronaldo were stationed in the wings.
