grim reaperJust when we thought things couldn’t get any worse, United managed to lower their standards even further and yesterday’s shambolic display away at Everton summed up our season: flat, gutless, shocking.

It’s hard to draw any lesson at all from such an atrociously poor performance, but here’s five things we’ve learnt.

Thomas Mueller of Bayern Muenchen celebrates scoring his team'sAs of last night, United’s season is as good as over. The upset we had dreamt of – even more intensely for those 22 seconds between Evra’s goal and Mandzukic’s equaliser – wasn’t to be and United, for the first time in a long while, have absolutely nothing to play for between now and May.

Here’s five things we’ve learnt last night.

The Special Juan

1212629-25313206-640-360The last time United approached a game in April in such relaxed fashion, Marouane Fellaini was probably elbowing kids in his local nursery and the Glazers had never heard of English football, let alone Of Manchester United.

A trip to Newcastle did not offer much to get excited about, apart from the fact that silencing the self-appointed “best fans in the land” in their own ground is always a pleasant activity, just as is reminding them that Ole Solskjaer cost a lot less than Alan Shearer. There isn’t a finer sight that a United end in full voice, and the traveling fans were absolutely fantastic today as they’ve indeed been throughout the whole campaign.

1210629-25275147-640-360“So come on David Moyes, play like Fergie’s boys” went the chant that we loudly belted out earlier this season.

Tonight, play like Fergie’s boys United did not – in fact they haven’t done so for about nine months now – but they still managed to secure a result that gives them a chance ahead of the second leg and showed that when it matters, United, regardless of whoever is in charge, can still put up a fight against Europe’s finest.

Anti-Moyes protest fails to take off

Tag: Match Reports @ 2:48 pm

1208807-25240499-640-360In a season of lows and questionable decisions, flying a plane over Old Trafford demanding for David Moyes to be sacked undoubtedly takes the biscuit.

The halfwits who organised that puerile initiative and the morons who forked out money to pay for it should be ashamed of themselves, there’s no two ways about it. Their stunt has done absolutely nothing to dismiss the argument perpetuated by fans of other clubs according to which United fans are a bunch of arrogant, spoilt, brainless idiots.

This is how it felt to be City

1206843-25203146-640-360Ahead of tonight, many Reds – some privately, some less so – had begun trying to find some positives to draw from a possible derby defeat.

The biggest silver lining of all, according to the general consensus, was that a City win would complicate Liverpool’s title bid. But, went the counter argument, surely United will finally turn up for a game where, as far as they were concerned,only pride was at stake?

Rooney’s magic lifts United

1205133-25170656-640-360What a strange season this has been for United. On Sunday they were humiliated on their own turf by Liverpool, on Wednesday they produced an utterly improbable and unexpected comeback in the Champions League,thanks to hat-trick from Robin Van Persie, who managed to dissipate reports describing him as unhappy, before picking up an injury that could sideline him for the rest of the season

Today they traveled to a traditionally tricky ground for them with a central midfielder filling in at centre-back and were gifted three points thanks to two goals from a player who was on the verge of leaving the club seven months ago, while he now ranks third among the club’s all-time goalscorers.
