“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 [...]

Washed Up Arsenal Legend To United? No Ta

Washed Up Arsenal Legend To United? No Ta

Thierry Henry is a player I love to hate. It filled me with great satisfaction that United finished Champions of England in his last year in the Premiership. Arsenal fans loved Henry and since I’d strongly disliked Arsenal during the late 90s and early 00s, it came naturally to have such a negative opinion of [...]

Chelsea Anelka: Rooney Wrong About United

Wayne Rooney is a fans’ favourite at Old Trafford following the past few seasons of entirely dedicated performances from the young forward. He is often criticised from those outside of United, but inside, he is loved and praised in excess.

Fergie: We Would Have Developed Chelsea Mikel The Right Way

“Cheerio, cheerio, cheerio,” the Old Trafford crowd jeered, waving John Obi Mikel off the pitch enthusiastically.

Anything Giggs Can Do In Salford, Stevie Me Can Do In Liverpool?

A couple of weeks ago, Ryan Giggs was presented with an honoury degree from Salford University for his contribution to sport and charitable causes. “I’m really pleased to accept this degree,” he said. “When I started my career as a professional footballer I didn’t envisage that one day I’d be made master of arts.

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. [...]

It’s Chelsea’s ‘Chopper’ Talking Out Of His Backside…Not Fergie!

Sir Alex Ferguson clearly put a few Chelsea noses out of joint with his recent comments about their ageing squad.

Clearly Harris missed the [...]

Stats To Prove Fergie’s Right…Chelsea’s Aging Squad No Concern For Us

Do you remember how painful football was for us United brats not so long ago? After years of having our pick of the trophies, suddenly another club came in to the frame, and they appeared impossible to compete with. They were like a machine, playing in a way we’d never seen United perform. No, they [...]

Get Out The Essien Calculator… Chelsea Are Going To Win The League!

Michael Essien had trials at Manchester United aged 17-years-old. After growing up idolising Roy Keane, he was eager to sign for us, however the issue of a work permit denied him the move. “My biggest hero was Roy Keane,” he confessed. “I just loved the way he used to play, his attitude and commitment.

Chelsea’s ‘Big Man’ Terry Relives Penalty Miss EVERY Morning – Weak Leader?

It should have been the moment Manchester United lost the European Cup. John Terry stepped up to take Chelsea’s fifth penalty, knowing that if he scored, Chelsea were the Champions of Europe for the first time in their clubs history. After the first 45 minutes of football, United should have been 3-0 up, after completely [...]

United’s Hard Stance Guarantees We Won’t End Up Like Chelsea

Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s great rise in form during the 2006-2007 season, the player was rewarded with a contract extension that saw his wages increase to £120,000 a week. If fulfilled, this contract would see Ronaldo at the club until he was 27-years-old, hopefully after winning a bagful of trophies. Last season, as he added another [...]

Chelsea Trying To Escape Racist Connections But Add Insult To United Injury

Whilst still confident United had it in them to go and win the league, the 2-1 to defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge was pretty devastating. To equalise in the second half, only to lose due to a soft penalty awarded a couple of minutes from time, left me upset, frustrated, and angrier than I’d [...]
