United - Giggs Lays the Law Down!

United - Giggs Lays the Law Down!

After another disappointing result, our third draw in four games (against Glasgow Rangers), it`s very easy to ponder over why United have started the season in a poor, compared to others, fashion.

Last night two of our domestic rivals handed out emphatic thrashings in the Champions League, whilst one of them, Chelsea, appear to be crushing all to be put before them having made a start teams can only dream of.

Ryan Giggs, well aware that United are playing catch up already, has spoken about the need to get the Red-machine back to its slickest best, commenting,

"When people defend in numbers we usually find a way round them and that`s usually find a way round them and that`s what was disappointing against Rangers."

"We were also sloppy away to Everton and Fulham."

"Over the last few years you have needed a strong start in the league and mustn`t drop too many points early on. We`re wary of that."


Returning to the league, United face another tough fixture this weekend when they take on Liverpool, whilst our fierce rivals face the relatively easier prospect, on paper, of entertaining Blackpool, following Ryan`s thought pattern, clearly it is essential that we take three points on Sunday!

Lets not be overconfident about Blackpool, they don't roll over nor die out of the game easily. Also, if we could get a win at Liverpool that should really strengthen our title prospects.

Incidentally, Blackpool are the first team we've played who have had any points on the board this season!

I reckon your slow start to the season is entirely down to not having enough talent in your squad. Yes, you have good players and some good prospects, but the squad you have at the moment does not strike fear into other teams as it used to in the past. No strength in depth means you can't mix it up by dropping anyone either, as the result against Rangers showed. I'd say it's highly unlikely that you will beat Chelsea to the title this season.

fifthcolumnblue is just telling the truth......but that dosent mean it'll come to happen. Freak accidents happen all the time and UTD or Arsenal can indeed take the title if Chelsea dont build upon their wins.
