Darren Fletcher has spoken about the players' disappointment after losing 2-1 to Swansea at Old Trafford and being knocked out of the FA Cup.
"It's a really disappointed dressing room in there," said Fletcher. "It's a massive blow, let's not kid ourselves, this is a bad result.
1. Last night was a typical of example of the unpredictability we now face as United fans with our team that saw nine changes from the weekend easily brushing aside Norwich. We dominated the game from start to finish and played some really good football, particularly in the second half. Ferguson has said that this season will be considered a success for Moyes if he wins just one trophy so it was important we got a result last night.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea have had disappointing weeks in the lead up to this game. United were robbed in the Champions League against Real Madrid, with Jose Mourinho conceding the best team lost, whilst Chelsea were outplayed and beaten by some Romanian team in the Europa League.

A game against Middlesbrough or Chelsea awaits us if we can get past Reading tonight and thankfully we've had a lengthy rest following the exhausting game at the Bernabeu on Wednesday. You imagine we will see plenty of changes but with a squad as strong as ours we should have enough to deal with Reading.

After needing a replay to beat West Ham in the 3rd Round, hopefully we will have an easier job of getting past Fulham today. There's just two points separating those teams in the league, so we're looking at a similar team in terms of quality, but the Hammers have Carlton Cole playing up front, whilst Fulham have former RoM favourite, Dimitar Berbatov.
If Manchester United beat Swansea today, they will play against in the 4th round of the FA Cup.

When David Moyes hit out at the Premier League a couple of weeks ago, suggesting a "conspiracy against United" in terms of our opening run of fixtures in the new campaign (I think we all know that run now: Swansea, Chelsea, Liverpool, Palace, City), he may have been continuing a fine tradition of controlled paranoia which Fergie used to use as a tool for constructing that famous Old Trafford siege mentality.
If Manchester United beat Reading on Monday night they will face Middlesbrough/Chelsea at Old Trafford on March 9th or 10th.

Millwall vs Blackburn Rovers. "FA CUP DRAW: United To Face..
1. After Sunday's embarrassing derby day defeat against Manchester City, United needed to bounce back with a result against Liverpool last night in the cup. Having picked up just one point from our three tough games against Chelsea, Liverpool and City (something Sir Alex Ferguson has also been guilty of in the past, lest we forget), the doom merchants were out in full force.
You would imagine that Sir Alex Ferguson will channel all the frustration from Tuesday's unjust result against Real Madrid in to Sunday's Cup game against Chelsea. Our opponents also lost in Europe this week but their players seem far more resigned to losing than ours this season. Still, in one off cup games, with both teams having a point to prove thanks to the rivalry they've enjoyed over the past few years, you never know what could happen.
"We don't need to give away stupid plastic flags to our fans to wave, our supporters are always there with their hearts and that is all we need. Its the passion of the fans that helps us to win matches, not flags. Chelsea fans lack passion."
I'm sure at the time these words raised his legend status amongst his own fans, with Liverpool supporters despising the moden day Chelsea, as the two clubs repeatedly came to blows in the Champions League.
