Red Rants at related • 0 views
Often enough, we see Manchester United stutter at least somewhat over the course of the first few months of the season, then catch fire and show their best at the right time on the way to a successful season.

The less said about today's result the better. I'm not suggesting we should be dismayed or in any way embarrassed far from it, Wolves looked a competent side with some talented lads.
