2 Manchester United 16 36
3 Chelsea 16 34


  1. What's all this panic suddenly...we had a bad day at the office thats all.

    All 11 starters failed to perform and middlesboro gave their best performance in years.

    we have players coming back from injury this week and it wont be long before we are back to full strength . i have no doubt that the response to this one poor result will be positive.

    watch out Chelski .

    its hard not to panic wen i watched us against middlesbrough i dont remember there keeper makin a save , its not good enough if we want to win the leage so wat a couple of players were out we should still of put simple passes together and created some chances. and saying it was the 4th away game in a row is a big cop out , wat happens is cesc and helb get injurd again wen they get back same stuff will happen not enough creative midfielders in our squad , he keeps buying defence mid players , if ur gona always play a 4 5 1 u need attackin midfeliders right spend spend spend and dont buy more nobodys just look at eduardo rubish, they have got big names for a reason because they are the best in the postion . if liverpool can do it why carnt we .
