Ridiculously ridiculed

The most astonishing storyline to come out of Manchester United's draw with Tottenham is the constant mockery and blame that David de Gea is receiving for that result.

de Gea maybe celebrating elsewhere
The young goalkeeper, who was was terrific during the game with some blinding saves, have some United "fans" ripping him apart and even suggesting that he is sold off.

Of course the media is having a field day with this, because any chance they get, they will rip apart of United player -- but both of them are wrong in their assessments of de Gea.

The real reason Why Premier League tickets are on rise

There has been a lot of fuss lately with the rising cost of tickets to attend Premier League matches – but the clubs are not solely to blame for this.

Fans will always come to see United
All over the world people are faced with rising cost of living, so it really should not come as a surprise, because football is not an exception to this.

We all know that football clubs are businesses and they, too, have faced a rise in cost operating, which means that they have to raise it to a certain level.

He's finally getting the appreciation he deserves

Around this time last season, Jonny Evans was one of the most hated players at Manchester United, but now he's seen as the staple figure in the back-four.

Evans is not afraid to be a leader
After getting sent off in the 6-1 defeat against Manchester City, the growing center-back was seen as the new scapegoat, but since then, he has done nothing but disprove and earn the respect of the doubting fans.

Evans has been steady and consistent, and has shown glimpses of being the long-term replacement to one of the aging center-back pairing of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.

The real impact of van Persie at Manchester United

The vast majority of Manchester United fans poked fun that Arsenal would have been relegated without Robin van Persie last season - but they now understand all that he brings now he's one of them.

van Persie has respect that most don't
Through 10 Premier League games, the Dutchman has scored eight of the Reds 26 goals, but that doesn't tell the entire story, as he is more vital to the club's table-topping place.

A lot of the things - also known as the intangibles - that van Persie does goes unnoticed to the average fan, as these things don't show up in the stat sheets.

Can United see more of his glimpses of genius?

Over the last six years, Manchester United fans have been patiently waiting for Anderson to realize his potential, but we could be on the verge of seeing that - hopefully.

Will the real Anderson please come forward?
We need to try to not get ahead of ourselves though, because, like or not, we have been in this position before only for something to prevent the Brazilian to finally turn the corner in his career at Old Trafford.

Like the beginning of last season, Anderson has showed glimpses of brilliance over the last month, but we need to see these performances for an entire season to finally believe he is ready to be a first-choice player.

Why he should be a starter for Manchester United

Many people are quick to make Ashley Young the culprit for why Manchester United aren’t scoring five or six goals per game, but that’s not what he’s there for.

Evra & Young have a good understanding
If you were to ask United fans, which they would rather have: either the best XI players or the best team – hopefully, they will say the latter.

When fit and in form, Nani and Kagawa Shinji should challenge Young to produce the goods at the offensive end, but what those two don’t offer is the protection and combination at the other end.
