WHAT A FIRST HALF OF THE SEASON UNITED HAVE HAD!
Whereas it has been the policy of Sir Alex to be negative and conservative in big clashes, the manager has had a go at Anfield, Stamford Bridge and at the Eitihad and look what we've achieved. That we last registered victories at all those venues in a season 99 years ago is testament to the magnitude of success we've had so far in the league.
The manager however will remind the players that no medals are handed out in January so the job is not yet done. City are out of Europe so we're going to need to keep them at arm's length for as long as possible. There is a good chance that if we keep professional and avoid dropping points like the ones we lost at Swansea, we could have a double digit lead at the top before Real Madrid distract us. What I'd like to see is the players kicking on and not getting complacent as it will encourage our rivals.
All that notwithstanding, given what I've seen from us so far, I am not complaining.....at least not that much anyway.
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!
