MUFC still fighting on all fronts

Not a too bad a January then, of course it could have been better but we’re playing so many games at the moment. That’s not a complaint though, although my bank balance is taking a beating with all these home cup games along with all the aways I’m currently doing. It’s good though for United as we fight on all fronts in every competition. The one loss in January came away at Hull in the League Cup semi-final but we still got through anyway, saying that Mourinho is still adamant it was a draw. What’s he like? It’s all about that us versus them attitude though and I love it.

Stoke away and Rooney hits 250 goals

We’re through to the next round of the FA Cup too, after wins over two Championship at home so far, next up another Championship side in Blackburn but that is away from home. For me the only disappointment of last month was away at Stoke, we weren’t brilliant but I still think we did enough to get the win. Thankfully, we got a late equaliser from man of the moment and now are all-time top goalscorer Wayne Rooney in injury time. I was in the stand just behind the goal and it was great to celebrate, he was having none of it though, he wanted the ball back to try to get an actual winner. It wasn’t to be though. Anyway, me go marching on, seven games in December and January and if all goes to plan we should have another seven games this month.

We try to do all our predictions the day before the match via text or watsapp so we have something in writing. Changes can be made once team news is announced just before the game, but it still has to be submitted via text or watsapp, even if we’re stood next to each other on the concourse having a beer. We’ve all agreed that saying it whilst stood there doesn’t count. No money involved but the winner may get a beer off everyone at the end of the season.
