A Catastrophic United fell 5-3 to a defiant Leicester City on Sunday, and sadly, the response and reaction from English football fans is something they would not have wished for; three major events would make Louis Van Gaal and his Red Devil players remember September 21

  1. Mario Balotelli Taunt: Liverpool striker went to twitter to show his solidarity, one thing which later turned out to be one of the worst nightmare since he moved to Anfield. Balotelli posted ‘’Man Utd… LOL’’, a simple three word conversation which attracted a barrage of racist comments like ''@CraigSainsbury which read: “Fuck you Mario you fucking nigger. Got eat some bananas and get ebola you dirty monkey,” for the 24 year-old Italy striker

  2. Gary Neville calling the Devils 'soft centred' and victims of bully in the hands of Leicester; the former Man Utd defender said: "There's no doubt Manchester United are soft-centred….They're not tough enough…. "I thought the midfield three for United and the back four got bullied," Neville told Sky Sports

  3. This could be the biggest taunt of all; following a failed referendum for Scotland’s secession, a plane believed to belong to a Manchester City fan, carrying a banner reading ''United We Fall’’ flew past the Etihad stadium ahead of City’s 1-1 drew with Chelsea. The banner read "United We Fall—In Cinemas Soon," and the team was slammed by the coach for giving the game away after leading two times in the game before falling 5-3 at the end of 90 minutes

  4. Juan Mata's silence: Mata said "I have waited a few hours before facing the white screen to try to express how I feel after the game in Leicester... After a whole week waiting for the match I could not imagine a Sunday like this... It's really tough to score three goals away and come back home with no points... On our way back to Manchester I was thinking about what had happened and felt so disappointed as all those that came with us to the stadium... Honestly, I feel very sorry that the weekend ended up for our fans in such a sad way."

  5. Louis Van Gaal's Blast: The Dutch tactician blasted his players after giving away the lead twice, he said, “A lot of players lost their heads... Then, anything is possible. We gave it away. They didn’t have to create a lot of chances – no, we gave it away... I have been 25 years in this profession and I have had another experience like that with Barcelona; we were three goals up and we lost 3-4. That was also with a top club, but you never expect that when you are 3-1 ahead, for the second time two goals ahead. You have to kill the game, and you have to keep possession but we could not do that, and then of course we gave it away with penalties.''
