HAPPY SUMMER HOLIDAYS

Apologies, for my absence from this forum for the close of the season, but any United fan would understand the  sickness that befell me from the time Everton got their fourth goal at OT.

That we were at some stage 8 points ahead and yet still lost the title is something that will haunt me for a while, and I hope it haunts the players as well. We did so well this past season to put ourselves in a good position and we blew it. I'm not even sure will get 89 points again next season. Fingers crossed that we won't need as many to win it.

This summer should be one of re-building at United so expect to be linked to just about every midfielder on the planet. Eden Hazard seems to be the Wesley Sneijder story for this summer. This blog prefers to let the rumours do the rounds whilst it takes a back seat, and waits for official confirmation of anything.
It's quite a while since we last failed to make a Community Shield appearance, so it will be quite funny that we don't open with it this coming season.

In the meantime, Enjoy the Summer!

AWFUL!

Last time I blogged here, United were well on their way for a 20th title. But since then, we've conspired to let valuable points slip away against Everton and then lose at Wastelands to all but hand the title to our neighbours.

Its disgusting stuff quite frankly, as you'd expect United, of all teams in the division,to hold on to an 8 point lead with a handful of games left. For all our shortcomings in the middle, we could still have won this title comfortably. 4-2 up with 7 minutes left on the clock and 4-4 at full time...just awful stuff.

I mean you know you're in the brown stuff when you're relying n QPR to avoid defeat at the Etihad to stand a chance of wining the title. If we don't win it, as is the more likely scenario, the 2012 title was lost in those 7 minutes against Everton.

Until I recover from the shock of the past events, ciao!
