I have written my match report on United explaining how pleased I WAS with our performance, and have also written a detailed tactical analysis on how we played in the second half. Now today, AVB has spoken of his surprise at the reaction to our performance. He said:
"I am surprised that people have criticised us being for being naive and stupid at Old Trafford. What happened at Old Trafford was a negative result but you have to be fair and say that we were the best team. We were not the most efficient team but we were the best team. So I thought that was unfair, because we played with essence of football. It's strange that people who know about football don't know how to position themselves on what is best for football and best for fans."

It was an entertaining game. It's a pity that we lost but we were superior for 90 minutes. Now we're five points behind and have to lessen the distance. I don't take defeats personally. Chelsea lost the game and we were unsatisfied because lost game against title contender.

It meant nothing else really. We had a good chance at Old Trafford to surprise everybody. I think we did that but we didn't come away with three points."
Like I said at the time, even though we lost I felt so proud of the way we played second half by taking the game to United with our change in formation and created plenty of chances that, on another day, we could have scored five!

So, what do you think? Is AVB right to feel surprised at the negative feedback?
