Out With The Old, In With The New – Giggs And Scholes Replacements Sorted

The problem of replacing Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes became apparent a few years ago when the players crept in to their 30′s. The pair had been such a vital part of our team for so many years, the prospect of replacing their skill, as well as their presence and experience, was not one we [...]

Is Fletcher Important To United?

For all his faults, Darren Fletcher is a player who usually shows up in the big games, showing himself as a player who can be relied upon when we really need him. He was a strong figure in all of our Champions League games last season, and throughout the course of the season, put in [...]

Neville Gives Us What Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal Don’t Have

Pepe Reina weakly palmed the ball in to the back of the net, the strength from Rio Ferdinand’s header too much to keep out. The Stretford End behind went mental. We’d done it! In a match where Liverpool arguably did more with the ball, United snatched the three points at the death. Like every other [...]

Would You Take Messi In Ronaldo’s Place?

We’re left in limbo whilst Ronaldo holidays with his bird who has the body of a goddess, not knowing whether he will be in Manchester or Madrid next season. Whilst there’s every possibility of United sticking to their guns and fending off Real Madrid for at least another season, as we did after a similar [...]

Rooney On The Cigs – Out Of Order?

Wayne Rooney got married to childhood sweetheart, Colleen McLoughlin, a fortnight ago, and is currently enjoying his honeymoon in Las Vegas. There were talks of a rift between Rooney and Ferdinand following Rio’s late decline of a wedding invitation, although I’m sure this is nothing more than paper talk. What I’m more concerned with is [...]

Next United Captain – Chief Fiwagboola

Manchester United have been without club captain, Gary Neville, throughout the 2007-2008 season. This didn’t stop United from going on to win the League title and European Cup double, with Wes Brown deservedly being offered an improved contract after great displayers in our defence. Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand have shared the captaincy responsibilities this [...]

Viva Ronaldo – Still Supporting Portugal

Scored one and unselfishly assisted another against the Czech Republic. At the very least, he’s bumping up his transfer fee with every game he plays in the Euros! It’s a shame we can’t take the same enjoyment from Ronaldo’s performances as we would if we knew for certain his future, for the next season at [...]

Cantona: I’d Love To Be United Manager

Eric Cantona, the best player to grace the Premiership, is a player United fans idolise, over 10 years after he left the club. The greatness of the man can be measured by the feelings he inspires in the red faithful, who have seen more than their fair share of great players, but still hold Cantona [...]

Ronaldo’s Exit – How Much Would It Effect Us And Do You Care?

We couldn’t praise Ronaldo enough this year. He was been incredible. I struggle to think of the last time a player had such an obvious effect on our season. A goals total of 42 in 48 games is phenomenal, particularly from a player who has spent much of the season on the right wing. I [...]

Month Of Madness – What Is Ronaldo Going To Say Today?

You would think we’d be used to it by now, the rumours that surface every time the transfer window is close to opening, but every year it takes me by surprise. There aren’t enough superlatives to describe what a fantastic season Cristiano Ronaldo has just had for us. Including his goal in the European Cup [...]

Ronaldo Claims He’s A Big Game Player – Is He Right?

Cristiano Ronaldo is a man accused of failing to show up in the big games which has been taken on board by United fans. The question of “what constitutes a big game?” has arisen. Your fiercest rivals? Important cup games? Top four opposition? I have heard people respond that every game is a big game [...]

Au Revoir Lads – Here Are Your Best Bits…

Mikael Silvestre and Louis Saha are both likely to be making a move back to their homeland this summer, with the players today admitting they don’t have much of a future at the club. Whilst Saha’s club of choice is yet to be confirmed, it appears as though Silvestre is looking for a move to [...]

I Love The Club So Much…But I’m Leaving

I’ve had more time for Louis Saha than a lot of reds I know. Those who sit around me at Old Trafford have called him all the names under the sun in the few appearances he’s made for us this season. “You lazy bastard” is the most frequent insult. This season, when he has played, [...]

Do You Want Giggsy To Start In The Final?

Ryan Giggs has possibly endured his worst season, in terms of form, in his 17 years of the club, which can be expected considering he turned 34 this year. He has come under fierce criticism from some sections of the support, with Giggsy tired legs not able to cut it on too many occasions. The [...]

United Players Would Sacrifice Anything For The Team

Manchester United fans can be guilty of having a certain snobbery when it comes to loyalty players from other teams show to their clubs. Recent examples of Ashley Cole stabbing his boyhood club in the back for the money and promise of success at Chelsea, as well as Steven Gerrard handing in two transfer requests [...]
