Five key thoughts from Cambridge United 0-0 Manchester United

Republik Of Mancunia at related • 0 views

Manchester United suffered the humiliation of being held to a goalless draw by League Two side Cambridge United on Friday night. The hosts, who sit in mid-table in the fourth tier of English football, earned a deserved replay after United failed to create enough chances throughout. Luckily for the Red Devils, the replay should not be an issue due to the absence of European football at Old Trafford this season.

Wayne Rooney

STATS: United, corners and Phil Jones

Republik Of Mancunia at related • 0 views

Last season, United averaged 5.7 corners per game and this season it is 5.4. 15% of the corners we took last season lead to chances, and this year it is 13%. Just 1.4% of our corners last season resulted in goals and this year, so far, it is 2.5%.

In real terms, that means this season we've scored 3 times from 119 corners this season, which is pretty shocking.

Man United didn’t rule Britannia.

Roy Hodgson announced his England squad for the World Cup yesterday and Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling were all selected. Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick are on the standby list.

It's no surprise that Rooney is on the plane to Rio. Despite having rarely performed well for England, and having not done the business for the International team probably since Euro 2004, he will always be the player England fans rely on the most.

Phil Jones has claimed that Juan Mata's arrival has had a positive impact on the Manchester United players, lifting the dressing room morale and delivering a much-needed psychological boost to a team that had endured a catastrophic season up until last week, when the Spaniard was signed.
