    Chelsea's Jorginho now with 2000 passes and 0 assists.

    Just by chance alone, you'd think your central holding mid could pick someone out at least once.

    United are now 5-0 in the league and 1-0 in the FA Cup since Jose was fired. Have out scored opponents 15-3 in the league and 2-0 in the Cup. Three straight shutouts (two in the league and one in the FA Cup)

    Beat Spurs 1-0 today. Spurs sits third in the table in sixth place and seven behind Chelsea

    Sitting on 40 points now just one point behind Arsenal.

    First time in United's history a manager has won his first six games

    United has the best goalie in the league right now

    Also have to seriously consider giving the job to Solskjaer full time

    Solskjar magic continues at Old Trafford as United are now 6-0 in the league and 7-0 overall under his tenure.

    Moved up 18 points in the table on 6 straight wins

    Defeating Brighton 2-1 at Old Trafford

    Have out scored opponents 19-4 in the run

    First time a United manager has won his first seven matches

    Watching it now, good that we'll see a lot of younger players, wish they'd have hired him sooner

    USA with the better chances, Mihailovic with a great finish from Baird...1-0 US

    Mihailovic certainly making the most of his opportunity so far as he's been the best player on the US side

    1st 45 in the books, US has had the run of play. Imo Mihailovic, Baird and Roldan have looked the best. I also liked that Berhalter said he put the team together that played the best together. Unlike someone I cannot name who often played guys out of position

    US 1 Panama 0

    Well, it was a good 1st showing for a young USA team and a new coach. But, it was a friendly not against an A squad for Panama, so we can't get to excited.

    Mihailovic for me was the best player, with Roldan showing well, Bradley also looked good as did Baird

    USA wins 3-0

    The next 2 games will provide stiffer tests against Costa Rica and Chile before the Gold Cup starts in June

    USA playing Costa Rica and Lawless laid it out bluntly that this team has to prove what they can do, win the fan base back and at this point in time do not deserve to be followed on TV until they prove otherwise

    Stands ate pretty empty in San Jose

    Keeping in mind pretty much all domestic based players as this is not a international designated game

    Yuck. Can tell it's the off season in MLS.

    That said, still hanging in there.

    USMNT has not impressed me at all in Berhalter's two games. Not his fault US Soccer put him in a bad situation
