Premier League: vs Bolton

MOTM: Hernandez
MPOTM: Hernandez

Not the best performance, we only scored as because we were playing against 10 men. Enough said really, wasn't good enough.

Premier League: vs Swansea

MOTM: Valencia
MPOTM: Welbeck (Performing outstandingly after just returning from injury)

Yes...yes, yes, yes. Perfection, a typical Manchester United on a good day, I know the scores 3-1 but if you watched the match you would know what I'm talking about.

Champions League Group C:

MOTM: Valencia
MPOTM: Vidic or Valencia

Sorry again, pictures not working again.

Formation: 4-2-2-2 (Wingers)
Line-Up: Amos-Evra-Vidic-Ferdinand-Smalling-Scholes-Januzaj-Valencia-Young-Welbeck-Hernandez

Valencia C.F

Manchester United
Decided to do it like this now guys, so you get the action much faster, you will still get the odd picture now and then, and get the full line-ups, stats and everything in the big games.

Rest of October Results

Premier League
Stoke City 2-2 Manchester United
Hernandez Pen 22' Pen 51'
Etherington 48'
Palacios 54'
Scholes 71'
Very lucky to win here, only drew because of the two penalty's, honestly, the Potters should of claimed the win here.

League Cup 4th Round
West Ham 2-2 (3-2) Manchester United
Maynard 62'
Young 72'
Ji-Sung 94'
Lansbury 105+3
Young 112'
So close! Should of closed them down more when they were attacking. Then onto the Penalty's have to say Lindegaard wasn't at his best, I think he might be the next one to move onto another club?

Premier League
Manchester United 3-0 Aston Villa
Hernandez 11'
Kishna 78'
Petrucci 87'
Very happy with this win, and extremely happy that my youngster Davide Petrucci picked up Man of the Match and scored his first senior goal for the club. Happy again that Kishna was on the score sheet once more.

Champions League Group C
Manchester United 2-0 Valencia
Owen 8'
Giggs 37'
Manchester United have now mathematically qualified for the Champions League knock out stages after this 2-0 win over Valencia, good goals from two of my Goldie Oldies.

Premier League
Everton 1-1 Manchester United
Pienaar 4'
Young 17'
Should of taken all 3 points here, we had thousands of chances in the 2nd half that we couldn't manage to put away.

Premier League
Manchester United 2-0 Manchester City
Rooney 31'
Kompany 47'
Delighted! After the 5-0 loss against them in the Community Shield a win was the last thing I expected. Good to see Rooney scoring straight away after returning from injury. The Fans were happy with this win and it boosted my board confidence a little.

Champions League Group C
Ajax 2-2 Manchester United
Janssen 8'
Rooney 28'
Giggs 31'
Sigþórsson 45+1'
Didn't really matter what the score was so I played a couple that don't play that often, like Anderson and Owen. But theres one game left to play and any of the 3 teams could STILL qualify... Time will tell who is the 2nd team to go through.

Premier League
Arsenal 3-1 Manchester United
Mertesacker 56'
Walcott 71'
Ferdinand 76'
van Persie 84'
Not entirely sure how this happened, I had Jones and Scholes in midfield, Jones, who is more defensive should of stopped their two midfielders and Scholes should of got the ball and layed off the two wingers or strikers.
Competition News

Manchester United have drawn A.C Milan in the 1st round of the Champions League. None of the matches are between two big clubs, all of them are against a team they should easily beat.

Premier League
Manchester United 0-0 Newcastle
Tim Krul
Boring match really, no goals but plenty of shots, Manchester United had 15 shots, 7 on target, where as Newcastle only managed 2 shots and 1 on target. Poor performance really.

Champions League Group C
Manchester United 4-1 Dinamo
Smalling 4'
Jones 16'
Rukavina 28'
Valencia 30'
Rooney (Pen) 66'
Considering we had 25 shots at goal it should off been more. Goals from two more 'defensive' players in the first half an hour meant this was going to be a good game. Dinamo pulled one back which made me think, but I left the team alone, then Valencia scored a very creative team goal, and to secure the win Rooney put away a clinically struck shot from the penalty spot.

Premier League
West Brom 2-1 Manchester United
Odemwingie 24'
Gera 47'
Januzaj 60'
De Gea
Disappointing, but West Brom deserved this. No luck, just pure quality from the two goalscorers; Gera and Odemwingie, both very good goals, Dorrans played a ball right through the defense to the unmarked Odemwingie, and Brunt with a curling ball into Gera who, easily, but professionally put it in the back of the net.

Injury News
Hernadez out for 5-6 weeks with a broken arm
Ekangamene out for 4-5 weeks with fractured ribs

Premier League
Manchester United 3-0 QPR
Youmg 13' 47'
Vidic 89'
They say lightning never strikes twice, however that all changed with a magnificent double from Young. Both wonderful goals. Then if the dying embers of the game captain fantastic scores a wonderful header. A VERY deserved win.

Premier League
Wigan 1-3 Manchester United
Hazard 1'
Rooney 7' 26'
Diame 46'
We attacked from the start and look what happened... Two goals in the first ten minutes gave us a good lead, then more attacking and Rooney gave us a 3rd. Wigan managed to pull one back which we shouldn't of allowed, but a good win for the lads.

Injury News
Vidic out for 7-8 weeks with a broken toe
Owen out for 3 weeks with a twisted ankle

Premier League
Manchester United 3-0 Norwich
Rooney 8'
Ferdinand 37' 71'
Good game from Ferdinand, 2 good goals from him, another goal from Rooney scored in the early minutes gave us a comfortable start to the game, then it got better from then really, Norwich hardly touched the ball.

Premier League
Fulham 1-0 Manchester United
Etuhu 6'
Rooney 15'
Disappointing overall from the team, Rooney really should of slotted that penalty in the top corner as he does in any other match but not to day which cost us the whole 3 points. As they scored in the 6th minute I expected a typical United comback, but not today.

Peterborough 1-3 Manchester United
Scholes 16'
Jones 28'
Rooney 37'
Brisley 66'
Rooney 90+1'
Manchester United win against Peterborough: Good team effort from the lads. The score matched the performance, pretty much total domination on the ball. Next round vs Barnet, should be another easy game.

Manchester United 7-1 Blackburn
Petrovic 13'
Welbeck 19' 27' 35'
Jones 24'
Rooney 39'
Hazard 68'
Cleverley 84'
Seventh heaven for Manchester United: Fans celebrated an emphatic 7-1 win to Blackburn, Welbeck's name was sung throughout the crowed after a hat-trick in the first half! Then to finish it off, goals from Jones, Rooney, Hazard, and Cleverley gave it a typical Manchester United touch to it.

Premier League
Manchester United 2-3 Tottenham
Hazard 8'
Ferdinand 15'
Saha 62'
Defoe 67'
Kaboul 83'
Spurs battle for victory: Disappointing from United, should of either scored a couple more, or concede a few less. Good performance from both teams though.

FA Cup 4th Round
Barnet 0-5 Manchester United
Hazard 15'
Evra 22'
Hernandez 35' 88'

February 2012

United thrash Wolves

A good win, and an important win, too secure a top 4 spot in the league I will have to start winning most matches now. Great two goals from Rafael, and one from Rooney. We had most possession throughout the match along with the most shots.

Premier League:
Manchester United 3-1 Wolves
Rooney 35'
Rafael 46' 65'
Jarvis 88'

Kalou's goal proves vital

It was an evenly matched game, but Kalou's goal right on the break made the half time team talks a little harder and made the decisions to change tactics around even harder, unfortunately, we didn't managed to pull it level in the 2nd half, but a deserved win to the blues.

Premier League
Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United
Kalou 45'

Pato's double sinks United

A good display from the team even though we lost, Milan had 10% more possession that us and about 10 more shots than us, so to keep it at 2-1 wasn't bad from the team.

Champions League 1st Knockout Round 1st Leg
A.C Milan 2-1 Manchester United
Pato 8' 48'
Hernandez 43'

Noisy neighbours give United a wake up call

Everything was flowing nicely, Aguero scored one, but we had time to pull a couple back, but, everything went downhill from the red card. I had to bring on another defender and take off a striker, decreasing my striking options and chances, causing us to only get 4 shots on target. Stats show we had a lot more tackles won than City, which in itself is a good thing, however, strength wise, we were totally beaten.

FA Cup 5th Round
Manchester United 0-2 Manchester City
Aguero 31'
Vidic 42'
Ganso 60'

United teach the trotters a lesson

Another good performance from the team, Rooney with two good goals, then Nani to finish the rout. This win keeps us in 5th positon, can we reach the top? We will see.

Premier League
Manchester United 3-0 Bolton
Rooney 20' 49'
Nani 70'

#53781 Slitty : Community Shield: vs Manchester City (N)

Hugely disappointed with this result, goes against everything that happened in Pre-Season, De Gea, was playing like an average school boy, the Defense didn't mark properly, didn't challenge any attackers, Midfielders didn't start off any attacks, and just let the other team rampage through the park, and the strikers, well, how big did they want the net?
Let's hope the rest of the season is better than this.

Injury News
Owen returns from injury
Rooney out for 6-9 days with a gashed leg

Transfer News
Manchester United submit a £20M bid for Eden Hazard, this deal includes 10M paid upfront and another 10M to be paid over 12 months. This deal also includes a clause that Lille will gain 15% of the profit made from Manchester United's next sale, however the deal may rise to 22.5M When Eden Hazard reaches 30 goals for the Red Devils.

Cleverly and giggs were never going to stop citys 3 attacking midfielders
you should get mbiwa and kagawa if you can on free. All good transfer targets there though.
