Can Ronaldo Really Improve Next Season?

Before the turn of the year, I looked at Ronaldo’s form in comparison to the season before. We had all been blown away by his performances in 06-07, so to see him improving so dramatically seemed impossible. There was no way he could sustain this goalscoring form to the end of the season, surely? Speaking [...]

The Dust Has Settled… Is Tevez Worth It?

When news came in that United had secured Carlos Tevez on a permanent deal, I was made up. He was brilliant for us last season and aside from his goals, provided us with the extra fight and determination all winning teams need. However, when the supposed transfer fee was quoted at £32 million, I, along [...]

“Chelsea Better Than United And Arsenal”

I remember distinctly waking up at some ungodly hour in September as the text message sound on my mobile phone went off. “Jose Mourinho sacked!” read the message. When it was later announced that Avram Grant was the man to replace him, I couldn’t quite believe our luck. Chelsea were nothing without Mourinho. However, Grant [...]

Cantona: I Will Manage United When I’m Ready And Will Revolutionise Football

Carlos Queiroz’s decision to leave Manchester United and take on the Portugal job has certainly thrown a spanner in the works for us. Sir Alex Ferguson had been grooming Queiroz as his own replacement, allowing him far more freedom and responsibility than most assistant managers. With Fergie already confirming that he only had two to [...]

Poll: Best Ever United Team?

Poll: Best Ever United Team?

If there’s one thing United fans struggle to agree on, it’s which of our great sides could be given the title ‘the greatest ever’. Whilst United’s success in 1999 is unrivalled by any other team, some argue that our teams from the early 90s were superior, however were held back in Europe because of the [...]

Is Arsenal The Team To Fear Next Season? Nahh

Arsenal are a team I have a certain amount of sympathy for. They are a ‘team in transition’, with Arsene Wenger selling off the last of his 2004 ‘Invincibles’ team this summer, eagerly anticipating the success of years gone by to return. This is a situation, as United fans, that we are very familiar with. [...]

Rio Better Than Chelsea’s Terry and Liverpool’s Carragher?

Rio Ferdinand is a player that I have taken several years to warm to, with the player’s change in attitude aiding my change in opinion. Whilst he has matured immensely in his time at United, his form has improved every season, which culminated in last season’s brilliantly reliable presence that he provided. Had Ronaldo not [...]

Scholes: Our Young Lads Totally Unfazed

Following Sir Alex Ferguson’s claim that Chelea’s players were getting on a bit, Paul Scholes has championed the great young players we have in our squad. Of our seven players involved in the penalty shoot out against Chelsea in the European Cup final, four were 23-years-old or younger. Whilst it was Scholes’ goal against Barcelona [...]

Quick poll: Will You Boo Ronaldo?

The boos were relentless as Aston Villa beat Walsall 3-2 this week, with Villa fans letting former idol, Gareth Barry, know exactly what they now think of him. He was stripped of the captaincy, with the armband going to Marlon Harewood instead, as he was forced to play with the Reserves. Cries of “Judas” and [...]

Youngsters Out On Loan…But Who Has A Future At United?

Manchester United have always put a great deal of emphasis on producing talent from the youth team. Whilst more recently, we’ve seen far more profit on these players than we’ve seen talent emerging in to the first team, there is a current crop of younger lads who we have high hopes for. “They’re all really [...]

Forget Ronaldo – Reasons Why Queiroz Is The Man We Need To Stay

“There is a need to sweep away the dirt in the Portuguese football Federation,” Carlos Queiroz said, when leaving his post as the Portugal U-20 team, which contained the likes of Luís Figo, Rui Costa, Fernando Couto, João Vieira Pinto and Jorge Costa. His parting was an acrimonious one, seemingly shutting the door on his [...]

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 [...]
