Since being spotting by Manchester United scouts when they were 15, with the da Silva twins have gone from strength to strength, Rafael in particularly.

View from the Enemy: Sunderland Fan On Richardson, Newcastle’s Promotion and Frazier

Sunderland have become a club we have lots of connections with over the years, thanks mainly to Roy Keane’s appointment as their manager. His transfer policy seemed to be sign United youth team players, loan United youth team players, sign former United players or sign Irish players. That connection has continued now that another former [...]

View from the Enemy: Newcastle Fan On Relegation Under Shearer, Nicky Butt’s Retirement and Mike Ashley Chant

Long gone are the days when United and Newcastle were rivals, with Alan Shearer snubbing us with hopes of titles in the North-East, Kevin Keegan’s very public break down on Sky Sports and nabbing Andy Cole from under their noses. Ah yes, those were the days. Much to everyone’s surprise, Newcastle weren’t ‘too big to [...]

Manchester United beat local rivals Manchester City on three occasions in injury time last season. Michael Owen grabbed a late winner in the dramatic 4-3 win at Old Trafford, Wayne Rooney made in 3-1 and knocked City out of the League Cup, contrary to Garry Cook’s very public assertions, before United denied City entry to [...]

VIEW FROM THE ENEMY: Liverpool Fan On The End Of The Rafalution, Hernandez and Carra’s Dad

It’s hard to believe that a couple of years ago Liverpool were the team closest to us when we won the league again. In the end, they won three less games than us but there were serious worries that Liverpool were in the ascendancy and that the claims of a ‘Rafalution’ were starting not to [...]

View from the Enemy: Chelsea Fan On Moscow, Berbatov and Same Ol’ Terry Always Cheating

It’s so easy to hate Chelsea isn’t it? Their bought trophies, their odious captain, and their rivalry with us for the title makes it so simple. The fact that John Terry is still regarded as a “legend” at Chelsea, despite the fact he was getting off with a former Chelsea player’s bird, sums up their [...]

It’s hard to believe that ten years ago, Blackpool were about to start the season in the fourth tier of English football, what we now refer to as League 2.

View from the Enemy: Birmingham Fan On Foster, Wenger Chants and Winning 5-1

United were pretty dreadful during their away draw against Birmingham last season, with an own goal saving us following a dismal performance. Still, Birmingham denied Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs the three points at St. Andrews after enjoying a very successful return to the Premiership, so there was certainly no shame in dropping points there.

View from the Enemy: Arsenal Fan On Captain Fabregas, Defensive Disorganisation and Wenger’s Future

I imagined this summer would be easier to get through because of the World Cup and the first week or so kept me fairly entertained. But thanks to my obsession with United, football that isn’t United can only hold my attention for so long. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a football fan, but I’m a [...]
