Nike’s latest edition to their flagship accuracy boot – the T90 LASER IV FG – hits the shelves after becoming the boot of choice for global superstars such as Wayne Rooney, Fernando Torres and now……Danny Welbeck.
The less said about today’s result the better. I’m not suggesting we should be dismayed or in any way embarrassed – far from it, Wolves looked a competent side with some talented lads. What I mean is, the 5-2 scoreline masks what was actually a closely contested game played at a high tempo and in the right spirit. Unfortunately for United they were missing key players and their defence continues to make individual mistakes and then struggle to rectify them as a unit.
Saturday’s visit to Wolves is the first of 3 games in 11 days for United’s boys before they take a well earned two-week break. Having suffered a painful defeat to local rivals City last week, the boys will come into this game fresh from the experience with a new found determination to improve, it’s what a defeat like that does. The result was a useful barometer of where this team is. City has an exciting team and took full advantage of the weaknesses United have through the spine of the team but it wasn’t all about them, United had their chances too.

Today was one of those rare days at Old Trafford where I would have liked to be in the dressing room at halftime to watch for the hairdryer. After all, for 45 minutes Fergie had sat on his hands through what has to be one of the dullest and most uninspiring home performances in recent memory. The lads hardly created a chance and showed even less passion and hunger for the opening half and so Fergie would have had a legitimate right to go off on them at halftime.
For a neutral, the last two Manchester United matches have likely made for great viewing. For the United faithful, however, the entertainment value can’t be disputed, but there is a lot to be displeased about, most notably the end results. At Stoke and at home against Basel, United went into the dressing room with a halftime lead both times. And both times they returned to the dressing room, they returned having given up the lead on the way to being held to a disappointing draw.
