Manchester United 2 – 2 West Bromwich Albion

They did it again! Another commanding lead was left for dead as United threw two points in the trash, this time at home in front of the Old Trafford faithful. Gone was United’s 100% home record, and gone is any real hope of lifting the Premier League trophy at the end of the season. All a faithful United supporter can do is pray to God that they finish above City this season… no easy task. Oh, and revel in the woes of one Liverpool Football Club!

Sunderland 0-0 Manchester United

Another piss-poor performance from United, but at least they kept a clean sheet. They had no drive, no creativity and no fight. Do I have to do another “not fit to wear the shirt” blog post?!
