Giving Context To Those Attacking Stats...

They might have crossed the ball too many times but Man United's accuracy was above average, say WhoScored, who try to give you some idea what to expect...

well done Martin Laurence. This has to be one of the best articles I have ever read on F365. Too many people take the cheap shots at players and managers without ever thinking to put it into conext first. Rosks ( MUFC)

Watching Rafael shank another cross, under no pressure, straight into the Stretford End was all the context that was needed.

Never any mention of the top league in the world on this site - FCBayern are coming to town next week and wait till you see how much better they are than even last year - this is soccer from a different planet, believe me. God help the poor gunners.

Perception is everything really, how you choose to phrase an article shows the extent of bias, this being one of the more even handed relating to United I've read in a while

Two grueling performances, laboured defence and hard work. Reminded me of Boxer and Clover from Animal Farm. Arsenal being Clover, as Man U 'Must Work Harder'

Exactly, stats are meaningless in themselves without context, they're just numbers. Suarez is having a wonderful season, but last season without the creativity he was forced to take many more hopeful shots, many still on target of course, but lower percentage chances. He'd be lucky to get half as many playing for us right now, but wouldn't be his fault!

Or you could just say we battered them but still drew. I know which conversation I'd rather have.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win


s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
