Hull Preview: Five Keys To Victory

Hull Preview: Five Keys To Victory

So here we are my friends, the final game of Manchester United’s 14/15 season as the Reds face the prospect of a relatively meaningless encounter (for us anyway) with Hull City. A seven-goal swing remains unlikely at this stage meaning Louis van Gaal will be forced to settle for fourth place when the dust has [...]

United’s six-game winning run came to a cruel and unfortunate end last week at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea edged a 1-0 victory courtesy of an Eden Hazard counter. Late injuries to Michael Carrick, Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones didn’t look to hamper United’s performance too much besides a shift in the side which [...]

Chelsea Preview: Five Keys To Victory

So… It happened again. Van Gaal’s carpet has been lifted as high as possible, with a sub-standard beginning to his tenure and ridiculous David Moyes comparisons swept underneath and into the darkest crevises and beyond reach following a rousing 4-2 derby win last weekend. With United holding down third place with an eight point advantage [...]

City Preview: Five Keys To Derby Delight

You’d scarcely have believed it to be possible this time last year, let alone last month, but with the Premier League undergoing more twists and turns that Alton Towers’ Nemesis, Manchester United enter this weekend’s derby ahead of Manchester City with just seven games remaining. The teams come into the game in starkly contrasting form, [...]

Where oh where did it all go right? After ridicule from all quarters this year at the prospect of Manchester United going a second season in succession with as many managers, missing out on a place at Europe’s top table, things have taken a drastic and fairly unforeseen turn in our favour. Unforeseen refers more [...]

Mata: I’m very happy for the fans

Juan Mata has spoken of his delight at scoring two goals in Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Liverpool this afternoon. It feels amazing. The game was massive for us because of the position in the table, the rivalry and the history between the two clubs. I think today is the happiest day since I came [...]

Mata: This was an unbelievable day for me

Juan Mata was named Man of the Match after his two goals in United’s 2-1 win over Liverpool this afternoon. The Spaniard claims this performance was probably his best in a United shirt. I think so [that it was Mata's best game for Man United]. Because of the rivalry it’s a massive game. In the [...]

Was it the “Philosophy”? Was it just a case of “Lads, it’s Tottenham”? Or was it just a fluke? Whatever it was, things took a huge step to improving for Manchester United last week, in perhaps the most complete and satisfying display since the Sir Alex era drew to a close. FA Cup defeat to [...]

Why my son’s first trip to Old Trafford was a trip down Memory Lane for me

We all have our reasons for falling in love with the beautiful game. I grew up in the days before Sky Sports, when ‘Saints and Greavsie’ was a thing and live football on TV was a rare treat. So, like many of my generation, it was initially through playing that the romance was kindled. I’d [...]
