Danny Welbeck has made a good start to his Manchester United career, from the screamer he scored in front of the Stretford End on his league debut to the further twelve games and two goals he finished the season with. Sir Alex Ferguson has predicted that Fabio Capello will be taking Welbeck with his England [...]
After Anderson was confirmed injured after training in Brail, Rio Ferdinand made an early exit from England’s 2-1 victory over Ukraine tonight, heading straight to the treatment room. With Nemanja Vidic suspended for the weekend, United are going to be pushing it for defenders when they line-up against Aston Villa. With Gary Neville touch and [...]
Before England’s friendly against Slovakia this weekend, Martin Skrtel was tipped to keep Wayne Rooney in his back pocket. Rooney went on to score two in a game where he was announced man of the match before even netting his second. Skrtel has conceded defeat, claiming Wayne is one of the best forwards in Europe.

There will always be moments when one of our players do something or say something which you know they deserve to get laughed at for. When Rio Ferdinand’s ‘You Got Merked’ programme was broadcast, I was cringing (until I saw Gary Neville tell that scouse copper where to go, at least). When the stories about [...]
Dimitar Berbatov was replaced in the first half of Bulgaria’s 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Serbia, with the injury believed to be his hamstring. He is now obviously a doubt for this weekend’s match against Aston Villa. It could have been much worse for Bulgaria when considering that Serbia missed two penalties. Fortunately for [...]
