The Red Devils are top of the Premier League table for the first time since the opening day of the 2013/14 season – 110 weeks to be specific. In today’s world of instant communication, it was novel to hear news via a muffled roar escaping from a packed supporters’ club. The former Spurs man believes the Red Devils will have asked themselves “what have we got to be scared of” when it comes to upcoming matches against the big guns.
It’s a god sign for the Spaniard and also for the squad as he suits the brand of football manager Louis van Gaal wants to implement at United.
Jones returned as a replacement in last Wednesday’s League Cup win over Ipswich and continued his comeback with another appearance off the bench against Sunderland at Old Trafford on Saturday. “It was a hard first game against PSV”.
As he attempted to cross Europa Way, near to Wharfside Way, there was a collision with a Nissan Qashquai.
And yet they’re top of the league.
The chant spread quickly towards the vocal 3,000 Sunderland fans.
Will they win the title? “We heard you singing, when Sergio scored!” Unlike their team. Sunderland are a great club and they’ve been champions of England six times, which is twice more than Manchester City, though not since 1936.
This was a regulation victory over Dick Advocaat’s strugglers and it gave Van Gaal a spring in his step and all of the United family a boost, according to the Dutchman.
Wolfsburg now sit 4th in the Bundesliga, and are coming off a 1-1 draw against Hannover 96 this past weekend.
“There is no reason why we can’t win the league”. It was his 171st for United and equalled the mark of Denis Law, the original king of the famous stand. No, City are just too much better. He got a chance for United in the League Cup and was brilliant.
If that was bad news for Sunderland, what happened 30 seconds into the second half was a disaster as the game was taken beyond them.
There is also a few transfer speculation to go with that and on that note, here is a round-up of everything at Manchester United on Monday. And that is what makes Mata such a brilliant player. If I’d been in a team that played like United have this season, we’d have feared for our lives when we went back in to face Fergie in the dressing room – even if we’d come out of it with three points.
United are improving steadily.
Yes, United have done enough, but they’ve never looked capable of killing off games, or dominating other sides, and I worry about the lack of creativity. Unlike his predecessor Moyes, Van Gaal has been blessed with relatively gentle starts in both his seasons at the helm.
