VIDEO: Chelsea’s Joe Cole Handball Which The Press Missed

There has been one thing that has surprised me in reading the match reports of today’s match between United and Chelsea.

Reports suggested that Mike Riley had been given the job because he wasn’t hated by either side. If United fans didn’t have a [...]

It’s Imperative We Get Something Out Of The Game

Had we [...]
