Had John Terry Not Slipped, United Wouldn’t Have Won The European Cup

If I got a pound for every time I read rival fans on this blog write, “United only won the European Cup because John Terry slipped”, I’d be a very rich man indeed. As is part and parcel of football support in this country, your success will always be undermined by your rivals. I remember [...]

United At Their Peak? Is Chelsea’s Terry Really That Thick?

Whatever happens in the future, whether we end up like Leeds or simply can’t hack it at the top once Sir Alex Ferguson leaves, whether Roman Abramovich hires all the best coaches in the World or spends £100s of millions on the greatest players to ensure superiority in England and Europe, John Terry will always [...]

PICTURES: More Badge-Kissing… Now Arsenal’s Adebayor

In the week leading up to Manchester United saying goodbye to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as the player, Sir Alex Ferguson commented on the state of our game, in terms of loyalty and contracts. “Anyone serving more than 10 years at a football club these days is exceptional,” said Fergie. “Especially with freedom of contract, the [...]

“Arsenal Better Than United and Chelsea”

Yesterday, I reported back on Avram Grant’s pearls of wisdom regarding which team from the top, claiming Chelsea were better than United and Arsenal. The logic behind this was a little cloudy though, surprisingly. He seemed to think that despite losing out to United in the league and European Cup, two months later, Chelsea are [...]

Chelsea Blame Drogba And Anelka… But Terry Was The One At Fault

The Champions League final. With six minutes remaining in extra time before the penalty shoot out, Carlos Tevez kicked the ball out of play, to return possession to Chelsea. Just before, Joe Cole went down ‘injured’ with Chelsea playing the ball in to touch. From the resultant throw-in, United gave the ball back in the [...]

“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. I have questioned in the past whether winning the Champions League automatically makes you the [...]

Fergie Hairdryer Treatment Last Appearance: Arsenal Away

Getting a victory over Arsenal is always something I enjoy, whether we’re in a position to fight it out for the league or not. There have been so many great matches between the two clubs over the past 10 years or more, fuelled by the intense rivalry between the two clubs for the Premiership title, [...]

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. Just days before, Jose Mourinho had been sacked and with half an hour played in to their first game without him, they were down to ten men. Mikel had clattered in to Patrice Evra and Mike Dean showed no [...]

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. I [...]

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. Whilst Scolari managed to resist taking the bait, Ron ‘Chopper’ Harris couldn’t help himself. He launched a scathing attack on our boss, claiming that Ferguson was ‘talking out of his backside’. Clearly Harris missed the [...]

Chelsea’s Scolari Chickens Out Of Fergie’s Mind Game Battle

Sir Alex Ferguson had a bit of a pop at Chelsea’s aging squad yesterday, questioning whether this current crop of played plateuxed under Jose Mourinho. Chelsea’s three highest scoring players from last season carry an average age of 30.3, in contrast to the average age of 22.6-years-old that United’s top three scorers have. Fergie was [...]
