Everything Is Calm Around United Now

Everything Is Calm Around United Now

Flickering through the news today, it struck me how difficult it is to find anything that is worthy of mention about United. And that is unusual.

The picks of today's bunch: Rooney is to buy a McLaren for 350,000 - and it will be red-seated, Jean-Michel Aulas is unhappy about Fergie's tricks as the boss tries to enlist Saha to persuade Benzema of what a delightful thing would be to sign for United, Anderson is a big thing, Foster will be back soon...

Newspaper columns, blogs, nothing held any interest whatsoever. Eduardo's injury, the Carling Cup final, Rafa Benitez, Everton's another impressive victory, the death of the 39th game: these dominated the headlines, columns, blogs, debates, everything.

And it is all so well. There was a brief focus on United when we had a couple of disappointing results due to a dip in form, fired-up opponents and bad team selection. Since those games, we've recorded two impressive tonkings on the domestic front and earned a creditable and deserved 1-1 at Lyon in the Champions League.

But even after the 4-0 defeat of Arsenal, the talk was mostly about the Gooners, and how their season would pan out after this. Our Champions League game got little press coverage due to Arsenal's draw with Milan and most importantly, Liverpool's unexpected win over Inter. Even the Kevin Keegan v Alex Ferguson reunion wasn't hyped out of the world.

We were, by and large, allowed to go on about our business quietly ever since that horrible derby day defeat. And it is all so well. As a United fan you get used to two articles per day questioning the team's capabilites and maybe one News of the World-style gossip that makes the headlines even in the quality papers.

I don't know what you think but I love it that somehow everyone seems to forget United. We go on smoothly with our business and though no doubt that as the season draws to its close the spotlight will be thrust back on United again, I'm enjoying this unusual silence.
