FA Cup

Manchester United visited Cambridge United in an FA Cup fourth round which had ‘giant killing’ written all over it.

With over 70 places and millions of pounds the difference between the two clubs, Manchester United, on paper should have brushed aside the League Two outfit – but as it were, the boys in amber gave as good as they got and were up for a scrap.

United boss Louis Van Gaal opted for a flat back four and midfield diamond to the delight of the fans – however failed to cause any real problems for the opposition.

Once again defensively sound and not conceding, you could be lead to believe the outcry for attacking flair is far greater than the need for new defenders.

Although Manchester United never looked like losing – the backlash from the fans after the match for failing to win was quite astonishing.

Pride of all Europe‘s YouTube host Nathon Woodhead reviews the FA Cup tie and looks at post-match fan reaction from Twitter.

Should this match have been comfortably won or did the magic of the cup take over?

For those who do not believe in the magic of the cup, all that is needed is looking at the other results from round 4 showing anything can happen. Maybe an away draw was not so bad after all?

Welcome to this week’s rather condensed loan round up, as there has been little to please those United’s loanees. Guillermo Varela played for Real Madrid Castilla who now sit second top of Segunda B by goal difference, after a win at Getafe B. The result comes as the rumours begin to gather pace at the prospect of the youngster making his move to Madrid permanent at the end of his loan spell. Not the same however for his senior squad counterpart Javier Hernandez. The Mexican continues to perform below par, and spent the entire game on the bench as the senior team ran out 3-0 winnners also at Getafe.

Fellaini gives the Reds the lead.

Fellaini gives the Reds the lead.

Is it really that straight forward? Was it going 4 at the back that made the difference or was there something else to it? After a DRAB 57 minutes, on came James Wilson for Jonny Evans, the shape of the team changed and a mere one minute later we were ahead thanks to another substitute Marouane Fellaini.

Do Performances Matter For United This Season?

The trainer-coach admires his philosophy in action…

“Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.”
It’s one of the most famous quotes in sport, often wrongly attributed to Vince Lombardi. It was, in fact, the American football coach Henry Russell Sanders in 1950 who coined a phrase that still endures today.
