ANOTHER TWO HORSE RACE?

Premier League Manchester United
by allsport1 (U9532859) 29 September 2007
comment on the article

We're amassing points, even though the lads haven't moved out of second gear. Another dogged performance and we can only get better.
Every season, like all other teams, we go through a bad patch and I reckon we're having it right now. However we're still getting 3 points most games.

It's looking like the olden days though, with a two horse race between us and Arsenal

The difference between Liverpool and United, since Scouse fans keep going on about it is that Liverpool are at full strength and playing as well as the can play (same for Arsenal), United are probably playing the worst they will play all season, and yet Liverpool are behind United, and Arsenal are still easily within reach. Not_better... you are a bitter idiot, fact, but you are not untypical of Liverpool fans.

I think Ferguson should try Rooney and Saha or Tevez and Saha upfront. They need someone who will go into the space. Yesterday during a certain move, Giggs was looking for people in the box to play the ball to, but noone was there, both Rooney and Tevez were at the edge of the box. Result: Giggs tries a long shot which goes wide.

Ferguson should also give Nani and definitely Anderson more minutes.

who cares whether we are playing good football?
a win is a win.
1-0 or 10-0. it doesnt matter...
united will win the league by tht end of april/start of may with two games to go. arsenal will keep going to xmas then wen toure eboue adebayor go they will falter, as will chelsea who will still be a force despite wht everyone says. liverpool will be annoying and will hang around till march wen they cant break teams down and drop too many points

Man Utd have won their last 5 games. They have not conceded, and have climbed the table despite playing well below their best. If I was a Utd fan, I would be happy. Imagine how unstoppable they will be when they are back to their best...

its a three hourse race actually and anyway I mean ye surly we will improve but it has to be now starting with roma birmingham was probs our hardest game or portsmouth. We are yet to play a top team cos chelsea are mid table material which is why its only a top 3 unless u count city but now ronaldos bk man utd could start scoring the goals again if man utd could win the nezt 5 matches in the league i think they will make it no 10 title

This is Crap....its just annoying to see people writing unpredictable facts and considering them predictable. Its just way to early to predict the eligible title contenders afterall its just 5 point difference between the top-table and the mid-table contenders....say why cant we all just shut up and....watch as time tells. Man United 4 life.
