Terry Will Even Things Out Following Vidic’s Red Card

It is hard to find highlights of the weekend just gone, following an embarrassing defeat to our hated rivals, Liverpool.

Liverpool’s Carragher: United Have Deserved To Beat Us

What A Surprise… Chelsea Charged Over Racist Groundsman

As was said on RoM, there was little doubt that Sam Bethell, the Chelsea groundsman who fought with Patrice Evra following our defeat at Stamford Bridge last season, had been guilty of a racist attack.

Can You Imagine If Cantona Did This?

Whilst the Chelsea team of old was not exactly something I had any fondness for, that little Italian chimp, Gianfranco Zola, certainly had skills that were kinder on the eye than anything the blues have to offer these days.

Giggs: Money Can’t Buy City A History Like United’s

Ryan Giggs, a lifelong United supporter, started his career at Manchester City’s youth team. When he turned up at training, he’d show up in red shirts and be told to take them off.

City Are Quickly Becoming A Joke…

My expectations of fellow Mancs, even if from the blue side of town, would lead me to believe that even they’ve got to cringing following the comments of Dr Sulaiman Al-Fahim today.
