This is not going to become a regular thing, but I feel it incumbent to record that United did break their losing streak and comfortably overcome Northampton Town, a League One side (a League One side that had gone 31 matches unbeaten before meeting us, I feel I should mention).
Apparently, United dominated the game for 80 minutes, but wobbled when the home team scored an against the run of play equaliser from the penalty spot, so that enabled the Press to continue on their narrative.
But it’s not so much the win, or the fact that it doesn’t seem to have alleviated the Old Trafford crisis, as Mourinho’s press conference afterwards. It’s not his fault, it’s nothing to do with him, it’s all these ‘Einstein’s trying to undermine him, to bring him down, when they don’t know as much as he does, nobody knows as much as he does. Everybody’s out to get him.
And people wonder why I can’t give my heart to a man like this unreservedly.
