Warrior Vidic’s Influence On War

Nemanja Vidic is currently the centre of attention following what could end up a club vs country battle. Serbia are likely to fail with their aspirations to reach Euro 2008 tomorrow, with Portugal just needing a point against Finland to secure qualification. Regardless of the Serbia result, their fate is in the hand’s of Ronaldo’s [...]

New Signings: Who Is The Fans’ Favourite Already?

Owen Hargreaves has been a player often mocked in England and used as a scapegoat for the failings of the national team on numerous occasions. It only made sense then that he sign for United. It is a shame that his debut finished with a derby day defeat at the council house, and if we’d [...]

Pele On Best, Now Kaka On Ronaldo – Why Cristiano Won’t Win Ballon d’Or

Next week will be two years to the day that George Best died, after battling against an alcohol addiction for years. He has been hailed as the greatest player ever in the game time and again, and is often the mark any bright prospect at United is measured against. However, his title as the greatest [...]

Must Be The First And Last For Anderson

Anderson has been a revelation for Manchester United, and when he came with the massive price tag, and was given a starting eleven squad number, it appeared as though it could go no other way. It was his performance against Wigan that first got people talking, being subbed on earlier than one would have previously [...]

The Magic Of Rooney’s Birthday

Over four years ago, I remember watching North West tonight and watching a group of lads kicking a football around on a concrete playground. The reporter was saying that one of those lads was tipped to play for his country in a friendly against Australia the following day. He was built like a man, powering [...]

The Myth of Rooney and Tevez

As the Tevez saga dragged on this summer, more than enough column inches were given to a hot debate. Would Rooney and Tevez be able to play together? Both players are short and stocky, with strength and quick feet their prized attributes. Whilst Rooney can bomb down the field and keep up with Ronaldo if [...]

Does Giggs Deserve A New Contract?

Ryan Giggs has been receiving a hammering from his own fans recently, just as talk of him renewing his contract has come about. I read comments from Giggs in the MEN on Friday (which referred to Giggs as the winger who had eight Premiership titles to his name. Where have they been?) and whilst I [...]

The Best Natural Defender In England

Wes Brown’s perfectly delivered cross in the Champions League midweek was met by Ronaldo’s head, and ended up in the back of the net. The Longsight lad has scrubbed up well for us, and whilst the seemingly never ending wait for Neville to return still goes on, it is reassuring to have a player of [...]

Scholes: Catalyst For United’s Success

United are starting to resolve their central midfield problems of last season, turning to Michael Carrick to replace Roy Keane, which has unsurprisingly proved more successful than our stints with O’Shea, Fletcher and Smith taking over that role. United have had a solid back four, with new boys Evra and Vidic proving to be two [...]

Gary Neville is a Red

When Roy Keane left us prematurely, we lost a great player, a great man, and a great leader. Of course, he was past his best, and had spent most of that season injured, but it was his presence on the field we were going to miss more than anything at that point. He was the [...]
