Knives were being sharpened. The hounds on twitter were barking and frothing at the mouth. Fingers were poised over keyboards, tablets and smart phones ready – hoping, more like it – to spell yet further doom in this newest and most joyously vulnerable iteration of Manchester United. Everyone so wanted Chelsea to roll into the […]

MATCH REPORT: Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea

26 Oct , 2014

Imagine the scene, ten years ago this very day. Manchester United prepared to take on Arsenal; always a gigantic Premier League clash, this one was arguably the biggest of them all.

After waiting for two weeks to see United play again, and after two consecutive wins, the game at West Brom was yet another draw away from Old Trafford. We were looking forward to see who’d play, and hoping that the team gets their first away win of the season at the fourth time of asking. […]
