I hate to have to say this to all Manchester United supporters… but your team stinks. Last season your side finished 6th, this is the 5th time in seven seasons since Sir Alex Ferguson left that they finished outside of the top four. You are up in arms over the ownership. And Liverpool won another Champions League trophy…
It sucks being a Manchester United supporter in 2019.
The next episode in the Manchester United soap opera is called ‘Romelu Lukaku: Should He Go or Should He Stay?’. There is apparent interest in the player from Inter Milan.
Lukaku doesn’t seem to be in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær plans for the future. But, Manchester United aren’t budging over their £79 million valuation of the player.
Both the Arsenal and Manchester United managers have a lot at riding on Friday evenings game. The Gunners host the Red Devils in the 4th round of the FA Cup.
I had to lie to my girlfriend as say I had some important career-defining work I had to complete tonight because Fridays are date nights (Let’s hope she doesn’t read this).
My dishonesty aside, this evening’s game is an important one. It’s an important game for the supporters, it’s an important game for the players, and it’s an especially important game for the managers.
Manchester United went home with all three points against Tottenham thanks to David De Gea goalkeeping heroics that proved he isn’t a human being.
Full disclosure: I’m a life long Manchester United supporter so everything I might say in this post may be a little bias. However, I do try to be objective when my heart allows me to.
Manchester United was red hot (excuse the pun) going into this game. Under interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær, they had won their last five games in all competitions, scored a bunch of goals, and featured on Paul Pogba’s Instagram account again. Playing against a, at the time, third-placed Spurs away from home was going to be their stiffest test yet.
