Oh Referee!The first Manchester derby of the season is now over, and Manchester United were unable to find the net or earn three points.

They are yet to win away from home this season, but for the Red Devils, the  game did have its positives.

Ten man United held their own in the last half hour against Manchester City, and surprisingly only conceded one Sergio Aguero goal.

In fact, a fair few fans might even tell you that Van Gaal’s side were unlucky not to get a point in the end – with Marouane Fellaini missing a header that Fernando Torres would’ve scored!

It may have raised more questions than it answered for both sides, but here is what the Manchester derby taught us this weekend.

    Why is it that the media compare LVG with Moyes? This time last year the Man U injury list was nothing like today. There are vast differences between the two managers. LVG, even with obvious weaknesses with the defense, was able to set up the team to minimise the impact of Fabregas and take a point from the Chelsea game. All the great MUFC teams had one thing in common – two world class central backs who were available regularly with very little disruption. That is a luxury that LVG has not had. True, replacements for Vidic and Ferdinand should have been signed but was that LVG’s responsibility or Woodward’s? Despite Smalling’s folly there are a lot of positives that we can take from the game against City so why don’t we back off and give LVG time??????
    His credentials speak for him and I am sure he will take Nan U back to the top.
