Live blog for Manchester United’s Champions League qualifier against Club Brugge.
Manchester United suffered something of a reality check when they took on Newcastle at the weekend. But United’s problems stemmed more of their own doing and their own lack of cutting edge and attacking prowess for which we have grown accustomed to over recent decades. Louis van Gaal’s men have the chance to put their [...]
Manchester United will be back in the Champions League this season after a one-year absence provided they beat Belgian Pro League side Club Brugge in the qualifying round. Louis van Gaal’s side are widely-expected to do so in the Champions League betting markets with no household names in the opposition squad and with the Premier [...]
Liverpool’s draw with Chelsea this evening means United are six points clear of 5th place with two games left to play. United’s goal difference is superior by 14 too. For Liverpool to replace United in the top four, they would have to win both their remaining games (at home to Crystal Palace and away to [...]

David Moyes has often been criticised this season for having the wrong mentality to be the Manchester United manager. Maybe it was when, ahead of Newcastle’s trip to Old Trafford, he vowed we would make it as difficult for them as we possibly could, that did it. Or maybe it was, after getting thrashed by [...]
Yet another dreadful result for Tottenham Hotspur today, showing that some clubs even manage to be worse than us in the big games this season, but they still remain above us in the league. They’ve played against Arsenal on three occasions and have lost all three of them. They lost 4-0 to Chelsea, 6-0 to [...]
