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.
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 [...]
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. Rooney was named Man of the Match before even scoring his second, which turned out to be the last kick of the [...]
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 [...]
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!
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 [...]
Yesterday, John O’Shea claimed that despite what people may think, Sir Alex Ferguson is very supportive of his players going on International duty. With a friendly scheduled for tomorrow, something which Ferguson has branded ‘a waste of time’ in the past, our manager is obviously less that impressed, particularly when considering the injuries we already [...]
Manchester United are struggling to remain on top for 90 minutes at the moment, which was addressed on RoM after our 1-1 draw with Everton. The general consensus was the reason behind our dropped points was we’re missing the creativity and stability that the likes of Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Owen Hargreaves can provide [...]
During the pre-season I started to wonder how on earth we were going to pick our strongest XI. With all players available, it was looking as though one of Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov and Carlos Tevez would have to be dropped, whilst just two players from the group of Owen Hargreaves, Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, [...]
There is always apprehension ahead of travelling to Fratton Park due to their recent good history against us. When looking at the players we had available to us, the worries increased. No Ryan Giggs, Nani, Cristiano Ronaldo, Park Ji-Sung, Michael Carrick and Owen Hargreaves, with Anderson supposedly exhausted after 6 games in 18 matches in [...]
Following John Terry’s ludicrous suggestion that Manchester United’s young team had already peaked and had no room for improvement, Michael Carrick has hit back at the Chelsea cry-baby. It stands to reason that a team with so many talented youngsters, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Carlos Tevez, Anderson and Nani, will continue to improve with [...]
