Tuesday night was a bit of a blur, if I’m honest. The overall feeling was one of frustration, and, somewhat surprisingly, the boo-boys were out in force for much of the game. I’m not sure if it’s where I was sat in the West Stand, but there was a general feeling of negativity, of a failure to live up to expectations.
Some of that rubbed off on me, and I was left dejected at the end of the game. But I watched the extended highlights the morning after, and I have to say we actually started to create some very good opportunities. If it weren’t for Mancienne’s strong defensive performance, I daresay we could have at least salvaged a draw against an eminently score-againstable (to coin a phrase) side.Manchester United, Preview
