So Bad They Named Him Twice Returning To The Premiership?

The year that Leeds were relegated from the Premiership, we played them in the 3rd Round of the League Cup. This was a day when our flops got the last laugh. United went a goal down at Elland Road just after half time, before David Bellion equalised with ten minutes to go. With nine minutes [...]

Choccy Not Impressed With Players’ Pedicure Routine

Brian McClair wasn’t sure what to make of a discovery on a recent visit to the first team dressing room.

VIDEO: Fergie Watches Former Player Grab Both Assists Against Arsenal

Chris Eagles highlight for United came when he scored our fourth in our 4-2 win over Everton towards the close of the 2006-2007 season, in a game which saw us go 2-0 down before leaving Goodison with three points.

Sparky: City Nowhere Near United

Wayne Rooney nonchalantly delivered a dig in City’s direction this week, claiming that despite the money they had, he would start worrying about them when they stopped lingering around the middle of the table.

Bruce: I Doubt Arsenal Kids Will Be As Good As United’s

Questions have been raised as to whether Arsene Wenger is disrespecting the League Cup by fielding a team of youngsters. As I have argued, based on the wise words of Sir Matt Busby, if they’re good enough, they’re old enough. Their 3-0 win over Premiership wide Wigan certainly suggests they’re more than good enough to [...]

Everyone was rather bewildered when Giuseppe Rossi left Manchester United for Villarreal a couple of seasons ago, with United fans tipping him to make it with the first team once he’d developed.

Where Did It All Go Wrong, Nicky?

After winning the European Cup in 1968, the final of 1999 couldn’t come soon enough for our club and fans. After a storming display in the Champions League, going through the group stages all the way through the semis without a single defeat, confidence was high.
