Who Would Have Thought… Farewell To Hargreaves and Tevez

It’s a sad week for Manchester United fans, learning that both Owen Hargreaves and Carlos Tevez are on their way out of the club. Who’d have thought, just over a year after joining United, Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to ship them out. You’ve got to love the British press… ———— The Republik of Mancunia [...]

Injuries: Carrick and Hargreaves To Create Midfield Problem

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, [...]

Hargreaves: My Chant Makes Me Laugh

Owen Hargreaves joined United as a highly rated player, after being shunned by England fans for years. Sir Alex Ferguson had been chasing him for a number of years, but finally got his man last summer. Hargreaves scored our winner against Arsenal just weeks before the end of the season, as well as putting away [...]

League Clubs Bigger Than England

The football fan that has confused me more than any other is the England fan who will sing Wayne Rooney’s name when they’re at Wembley, yet will come to Old Trafford the following week and chant “you fat bastard!” whenever he’s on the ball. How does the England fan do it? Passionately support a team [...]

Hargreaves Asked To Be Withdrawn

Reports suggest that Owen Hargreaves has asked to be withdrawn from the squad before we face Zenit St Petersburg in tonight’s UEFA Super Cup, after admitting he doesn’t feel fully fit. Sir Alex Ferguson had said just yesterday that Hargreaves would be playing, but would not be able to feature for England’s World Cup qualifying [...]

Fergie Ready To Take On Capello Over Hargreaves

Oh to be an England fan eh? Booing your players off the park at half time, getting your face painted before pointless friendlies, forking out a tenner for a programme, watching a bunch over over-paid under-motivated players running about, winning nothing. All it all, it has to be said it’s not the life I aspire [...]

“Arsenal Better Than United and Chelsea”

Yesterday, I reported back on Avram Grant’s pearls of wisdom regarding which team from the top, claiming Chelsea were better than United and Arsenal. The logic behind this was a little cloudy though, surprisingly. He seemed to think that despite losing out to United in the league and European Cup, two months later, Chelsea are [...]

Hargreaves: We Shouldn’t Be Punished For Rangers’ Behaviour

Manchester was a complete mess just a couple of months ago, following the dreadful behaviour of travelling Rangers fans to watch their team in the UEFA Cup final. Following the failure of one of the screens as well as a defeat for the Scottish side, the Rangers fans went mental, destroying our city. As a [...]

Do We Need To Be Concerned About Hargreaves?

When the signing of Owen Hargreaves was announced last summer, I was made up. Sir Alex Ferguson had been a long term admirer of the England international, who looked to finally be the man to step in to Roy Keane’s boots. Hargreaves made his United debut during derby day at Wastelands. I was massively impressed [...]

Owen Hargreaves – I Want Curly Hair Too

Owen Hargreaves has completed a good first season for United, with us finally appearing to have a player with the potential to fill Roy Keane’s boots. His debut against City at the Wastelands filled me with huge confidence as he fought for every ball and played with so much presence. Unfortunately though, he has spent [...]

New Signings: Who Is The Fans’ Favourite Already?

Owen Hargreaves has been a player often mocked in England and used as a scapegoat for the failings of the national team on numerous occasions. It only made sense then that he sign for United. It is a shame that his debut finished with a derby day defeat at the council house, and if we’d [...]

Finally, Some Good News Concerning Injuries

As I wrote about earlier this week, United have had a ridiculous time with injuries so far this season. Whilst we’ve had fighting talk from several players this week, the injuries have certainly been a concern to me. “The manager has chopped and changed this season already, whether that be due to injuries, or suspensions [...]
