Initial Reports: Scholes Out For Two Months

Paul Scholes was stretchered off with 15 minutes played in United’s Champions League group stage match against Aalborg. Although not looking in great deal of pain, carrying an embarrassed look as he sat upright when carried off the pitch, our fans of course feared the worst. With Owen Hargreaves and Michael Carrick both carrying injuries, [...]

Fergie Speaks: Southgate Appologised For Middlesbrough Captain’s ‘Terrible’ Tackle

Manchester United knocked Middlesbrough out of the League Cup this evening with a team showing just the right combination of youth and experience. Rodrigo Possebon, a young player United fans already rate extremely highly, played in his useful composed and effective manner. However, the lad is now in hospital following a disgraceful ‘challenge’ from the [...]

Van der Sar Will Be Back For Bolton

Edwin Van der Sar was substituted with half an hour played against Chelsea today, following a tough challenge with Florent Malouda. Whilst Andy Gray was hoping for a penalty, it was clear our keeper got something on the ball. He tried to stay on the pitch, but it was only minutes later that he made [...]

League Clubs Bigger Than England

The football fan that has confused me more than any other is the England fan who will sing Wayne Rooney’s name when they’re at Wembley, yet will come to Old Trafford the following week and chant “you fat bastard!” whenever he’s on the ball. How does the England fan do it? Passionately support a team [...]

RONALDO UPDATE: Back By End Of September

This time last year, Cristiano Ronaldo was out of the United team because of the red card he picked up against Portsmouth. He missed matches against City, Spurs and Sunderland, in which United picked up six points. By the end of September, Ronaldo had played in five league games, scoring just one goal. Much has [...]

Reports suggest that Owen Hargreaves has asked to be withdrawn from the squad before we face Zenit St Petersburg in tonight’s UEFA Super Cup, after admitting he doesn’t feel fully fit.

Good News For Portsmouth Whilst We’ll Struggle To Pick A Team

We’ll be kidding ourselves if we think Portsmouth will roll over for us like they did against Chelsea at the weekend. As we saw in the Community Shield, Pompey are up for a ruck when playing against United, rugby tackles and all! Sky Sports have just delivered some good news to our next opponents: Portsmouth [...]

The Importance Of Park

Park Ji-Sung is one of the few United players who manages to escape much praise from the media and our fans. Whilst he’s never going to set the World alight, I think he certainly has a job to do for us, particularly next season. Cristiano Ronaldo will miss the opening couple of months of the [...]

Saha Ready For 100% Fitness… So We Can Sell Him

Louis Saha is a player I have defended on several occasions when reds get on his case, however, half way through last season, I had lost my patience with him. He’s tried, there’s no denying that, but if we are going to dominate in the way we should, we need a striker we can rely [...]

Foster Situation “Unfortunate”

Ben Foster’s Manchester United career has yet to really take off, following time away on loan, coupled with a shattering cruciate ligament injury. The lad made a promising début against Derby last season and embarrassing enough, was our man of the match against arguably the worst side to ever play in the Premiership. He kept [...]

Rooney Out… Absences Leads To 4-3-3 or 4-4-2?

With Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani and Anderson already ruled out for the start of the season, the last thing we wanted to hear is that Wayne Rooney could be missing as well. Sir Alex Ferguson informed Sky Sports News earlier today that following days without training after picking up a virus, Rooney might not be available [...]

Do We Need To Be Concerned About Hargreaves?

When the signing of Owen Hargreaves was announced last summer, I was made up. Sir Alex Ferguson had been a long term admirer of the England international, who looked to finally be the man to step in to Roy Keane’s boots. Hargreaves made his United debut during derby day at Wastelands. I was massively impressed [...]

Is Rio Vital To Our CL and League Success?

The disappointing result against Middlesbrough was soon put to the back of our minds when news broke that Rio Ferdinand returned to the team bus with his foot in a protective case. In the age where metatarsal breaks are the new craze, the thought that Ferdinand could have broken his foot was pretty unbearable. Already [...]

Neville ALMOST Made Villa Start

United fans would be forgiven for getting increasingly frustrated with the Neville injury business. He hasn’t played for our first team in over a year now, but this recent rehabilitation period has proven to be his most successful since the initial injury. He has featured for the Reserves several times in quick succession, managing 90 [...]
