Berbatov – If you love him, let him go

When the rumour that Berbatov’s departure from Old Trafford was imminent took flight, we witnessed perhaps the biggest love-in that the striker has had since he joined the club. It was so great that you wondered whether Berbatov had hauled us to the title single-handedly, and felt a bit sorry for James Collins. When Berbatov [...]

Choccy Not Impressed With Players’ Pedicure Routine

Brian McClair wasn’t sure what to make of a discovery on a recent visit to the first team dressing room. Football is not like it was in his day, it appears, with McClair coming across appointment times for pedicures, massages and yoga classes.

Our Best Midfield Four – Who Is It?

There is always apprehension ahead of travelling to Fratton Park due to their recent good history against us. When looking at the players we had available to us, the worries increased.

Following the booing Manchester City fans dished out to their team last week, as well as news that owner Thaksin Shinawatra had warrants out for his arrest, the 4-2 battering Aston Villa dished out them confirmed the misery for the bluenoses and Mark Hughes yesterday.

Anderson – What a bloody nice bloke

Poor ol Kleberson. As if his stint at United wasn’t embarrassing enough, without Old Trafford’s favourite new chant having to bring back all the memories. Anderson, unlike his fellow Brazilian, is a top quality player and certainly is better than Kleberson. “I have come from one big club to another so I am very happy,” [...]

Poll: Best Ever United Team?

Poll: Best Ever United Team?

If there’s one thing United fans struggle to agree on, it’s which of our great sides could be given the title ‘the greatest ever’. Whilst United’s success in 1999 is unrivalled by any other team, some argue that our teams from the early 90s were superior, however were held back in Europe because of the [...]

Rio Better Than Chelsea’s Terry and Liverpool’s Carragher?

Rio Ferdinand is a player that I have taken several years to warm to, with the player’s change in attitude aiding my change in opinion. Whilst he has matured immensely in his time at United, his form has improved every season, which culminated in last season’s brilliantly reliable presence that he provided. Had Ronaldo not [...]

The Tide Turns… Time To Praise Rooney Following Fergie’s Sacrificing

Wayne Rooney made a positive impact in United’s dull 1-0 victory over Orlando Pirates last night, injecting a bit of class and excitement in the match. Earlier in the week, Rooney was on the receiving end of some harsh criticism from legend Pele, the namesake of our favourite chant for the striker. It was claimed [...]

Rio: Ronaldo Has Spoilt What Should Have Been A Great Summer

Manchester United enjoyed their second most successful season in the club’s entire history before the summer started, claiming the league and European Cup double.

Is Fletcher Foolish To Stay Loyal To United?

Darren Fletcher certainly splits the vote where United fans are concerned, with some trusting Sir Alex Ferguson’s judgement on the player, whilst others are insistent he is not good enough for Manchester United. Now facing competition with Paul Scholes, Owen Hargreaves, Michael Carrick and Anderson for the central midfield roles, all of whom come above [...]

“Ronaldo Bad News For Real’s Dressing Room Morale”

The Slave has been warned away from a move to Real Madrid by Wesley Sneijder today, who claims the top wages Ronaldo is set to earn would make the other players at the club jealous.
