Where Did It All Go Wrong, Nicky?

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. We’d won the FA Cup four days prior to [...]

Saha: Everton Move A Step Down

Three former United players made up the Everton starting XI today, the most recent of these to move being Louis Saha, who spent too much time on the treatment table to keep his place in our squad. When fit for sustained periods of time, most recently for the first half of the 2006-2007 season, there [...]

Giggs Explains Why He Had A Go At Phil Neville

Giggs Explains Why He Had A Go At Phil Neville

As Cristiano Ronaldo was scrabbling to stay on his feet, Phil Neville bulldozed in to our winger, winning the ball with one foot, planting his studs in to Ronaldo’s knee with the other. Alan Wiley surely would have seemed to have had no option but to send off Wayne Rooney had he been guilty of [...]

Philip Neville’s Born and Bred

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Whilst committed to Everton, I wonder if Philip Neville ever wonders what might have been had he stuck it out at United. Just a couple of months after signing for Everton, Roy Keane walked out on Manchester United. The central midfield spot was filled by everyone from John O’Shea to [...]

Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You Arsenal Fans

RoM was on the receiving end from quite a bit of flack from Arsenal fans after the signing of Mikael Silvestre. Whilst Silvestre was always a loyal servant and a model professional (apart from that one blip against Arsenal, when he hilariously headbutted Freddie Ljungberg) he often was, if we put it kindly, unlucky. Lapses [...]

Larsson: Celtic Is My Team… But United Can Win CL Again

When it was announced that Manchester United were signing former Celtic and Barcelona star, Henrik Larsson, on a three-month loan, there were a few raised eyebrows. Well in to his 30′s and playing in his native Sweden, Larsson joined United to aid our Championship fight. In his time at the club, Larsson scored for us [...]

Jaap Stam has reportedly returned to Manchester United, working as a scout for the club. He was spotted in Porto Alegre, Brazil, this week, taking a look at some youngsters United are interested in.

Ruud: Ronaldo Will Be At Real Madrid Soon

Ruud van Nistelrooy’s scoring record at Manchester United was prolific. Whilst spending most of him time in the box, he put the ball away at ease time after time. Even in his last season, when he fell out of favour with the manager and played less, he finished the second highest scorer in the league. [...]

Boo hoo… Ince Was ‘Hurt’ When He Left United

It was a shock during the summer of 1995 when the manager decided to sell Mark Hughes, Paul Ince and Andrei Kanchelskis all at once. We made £14 million from the sales and our expectations were of a big signing or two coming in. When we learnt that those kids from the youth team were [...]

Paul Ince Is A ‘Good Manager’ Thanks To Ferguson

Danny Simpson has been loaned out to Blackburn Rovers this year, following a few first team appearances for United last season. His most impressive display came in our victory over Wigan, with Simpson assisting a Wayne Rooney goal. Competitions for places is rife at United at the moment, with Gary Neville, Wes Brown, and Rafael [...]

What’s Pally Been Smoking?

We’ve heard quite a lot from our former defender, Gary Pallister, over recent weeks. It was only the other day he was praising United and insisting this wasn’t going to be Liverpool’s year. However, following our 0-0 draw with Villarreal, he’s come out with some rather odd comments, suggesting maybe he hasn’t been paying as [...]

Pally: This Isn’t Liverpool’s Year

“This is our year,” Liverpool fans and players will be heard saying at the start of every season. This has been one of the first years where that talk has died down, from the more experienced players like Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher at least, with them recognising they fall some way short of being [...]

City vs Chelsea Supercedes Liverpool vs United?

“We’ve got Robinho! We’ve got Robinho!” the delirious Manchester City fans chanted to the Sky Sports News camera after news broke Robinho would be playing in City’s blue this season. There were times in the summer where it appeared inevitable that the Brazilian would be playing at Stamford Bridge this season, but following the takeover [...]

Rossi Can’t Wait To Play Against Best Team In The World

Giuseppe Rossi is seen as ‘the one that got away’ considering the great expectations we had on him. Whilst securing a nice transfer fee of 6.7 million, the fans were keen to keep a hold of him. He has thrived at Villarreal, leaving us rather interested in supposed option we have to buy him back. [...]

Gill: Why Frazier Wasn’t Sold And Saha Was

After possibly the most dramatic close of the transfer window ever, Manchester United finally landed their man, Dimitar Berbatov, and loaned out young striker, Frazier Campbell, in return. Hull were prepared to pay £7million for the 20-year-old, following the brilliant season he’s had with them, aiding their promotion to the Premiership. However, Sir Alex Ferguson turned [...]
