No End To United’s Skills… Now Stopping AIDs

No End To United’s Skills… Now Stopping AIDs

Last year, the number of men practising safe and getting tested increased dramatically in Sierra Leone, a country that had seen a 75% increase in all new HIV infections since 2002. The reason? A nationwide campaign across TV, radio and billboards. It was doctors telling men to put a condom on, it wasn’t politicians fighting [...]

Why Is Capello So Unhappy With Carrick?

Reports in the morning’s papers suggest that Fabio Capello is not at all happy with Michael Carrick after his late withdrawal from the squad. It turns out Carrick broke his toe during the European Cup final against Barcelona last week, which meant he had to pull out of the England squad. The injury was picked [...]

Carrick: It Feels Great To Score Important Goals

Michael Carrick was presented with a great first half opportunity to level the score against Wigan tonight, but saw his attempt go just over the bar when under pressure from the defender. He more than made up for it with an 86th minute winner, after assisting the equalising goal, scored by Carlos Tevez. Carrick looked [...]

Nobody Complains About Carrick’s Transfer Fee Now

When Manchester United signed Michael Carrick I was disappointed. Not because I didn’t think he was a good player but because I didn’t think he was good enough. It had been three years since we had won the title and I felt like we needed someone with a bit more umph that Carrick. The fact [...]

Carrick: Our Fans Are Always Behind Us

Whatever people want to say about Old Trafford, the atmosphere is fine. It’s not brilliant but it’s not shit, and it has steadily improved over the past few seasons, after a pretty dire spell about five years ago. After the 4-1 battering against Liverpool, plenty of people were off early. Those that stayed sung the [...]

Carrick: Believe Me, We’re More Determined Than Ever

United fans might be forgiven for believing their team aren’t too bothered about retaining their titles as Champions of England and Europe, given their recent performances. Carrick insists this isn’t the case though, claiming they are even more determined this season than they were last.

Carrick: Don’t Blame This On Pressure Or Fatigue

With most the Manchester United team falling short of our expectations over the past few weeks/months, Michael Carrick has certainly be one lacking form. It doesn’t appear to be a lack of effort, rather a lack of confidence, with the England midfielder spending too much time on the ball and looking reluctant to take control [...]

VIDEO: Rooney Is England’s Saviour Again… Whilst Evans Gets His First For NI

Following a week of slatings in the press and the England manager Fabio Capello calling him a ‘crazy man’, Wayne Rooney went on to score two goals in England’s 4-0 victory over Slovakia.

Carrick: We Don’t Want Any Regrets… So Let’s Win All Four

Nemanja Vidic is probably our only player who has enjoyed better form than Michael Carrick this season, who has proved himself as a great asset to our team this season. Reflecting on last season, Carrick notes how disappointing it was to lose against Portsmouth in the FA Cup, particularly when the run to the final [...]

Carrick Slated… But England Need Rooney

Following England’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Spain, Michael Carrick, who was picked ahead of Frank Lampard in the centre of midfield, was on the receiving end of some harsh criticism. In contrast, Wayne Rooney is being hailed as England’s saviour… again. I wonder how long it will last for this time!

How Did Carrick Get On For England?

The Sun: GIVEN the nod to start ahead of Frank Lampard after his decent performance in the 2-1 win against Germany last November. Did not make the best of it though as he was too slow in making passes and watched the game pass him by. Nowhere near his club form and in the company [...]

Carrick Won’t Lose Sleep Over England Place

Paul Scholes was overlooked by Sven-Goran Eriksson in order to accomodate both Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard in the England midfield. Scholes retired to focus on United, clearly not impressed at having to play out of position, and every manager that followed Sven asked him to reconsider. This was over four and a half years [...]

BBC’s England Man of the Match

BBC’s England Man of the Match

Michael Carrick! Well done lad. Nice to see even when we only have one player representing the national team, one who is always overlooked in favour of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, that he is giving a good account of himself. I didn’t watch the game so don’t expect any more from me on it!
