Is Fergie Right About Chelsea?

One of the most painful moments as a United fan was that 3-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge when Chelsea won back to back titles under Jose Mourinho. United were played off the park and Chelsea didn’t even really look as though they were trying. United fans had been spoilt with success, becoming accustomed to winning [...]

Poor Stevie Me Can Only Dream Of Beating United

Every year when Liverpool are out of the title race before the turn of the year, the fans and players are heard talking of next season. Next season will be their year. Then next season comes along, they’re miles behind the leaders, and again they’re ready to claim next season will be the year they [...]

Would Rooney Have Been Let Off Like Gallas?

Saturday was a great day for United fans, who less than a week before had to endure the woeful performance our lads put on for derby day. To witness four goals from our team is always an enjoyable experience, but for them to come against title rivals and old foes Arsenal is even better. Whilst [...]

Wenger: Arsenal Were Teased And Humiliated

Beating Arsenal is always an enjoyable experience, whether in the league or the Cup. The long running rivalry between Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger has lead to fiery clashes, whereby usually one or both managers have something to say about the other side come the final whistle. Sir Alex Ferguson was left to complain [...]

Gallas: United Are Arrogant And Complacent

William Gallas, Arsenal captain and whingebag, has today launched a scathing attack on the Champions, branding us too arrogant and complacent. United and Arsenal are set to lock horns in the FA in just a few hours time and it seems as though Gallas is keen to get a verbal slanging match up and running [...]

United Got The Last Laugh Over Chelsea Cry Baby Mikel

The transfer saga, which the John Obi Mikel signing turned in to, was a strange situation for the club to be in. For a player to go to such measures to ensure they didn’t fulfil their contract obligations to join Manchester United was rather bewildering. Granted, we’d only won the League Cup and came second [...]

Manchester City, Welcome To The Human Race

For the weeks preceding the Manchester derby, there were worries that some City fans would spoil the minute’s silence planned in honour of the Busby Babes. After attending plenty of Manchester derbies, I felt as though disruption to the minute’s silence could not be avoided, hearing the blue side of Manchester sing about Munich year [...]

Why The Hell Did They Pick Derby Day For Munich Weekend?

In the next few hours, we will see the result of several weeks of speculation concerning the behaviour of City fans during the one minute’s silence which is being held at Old Trafford today. The gates are closing five minutes before kick off today, to ensure that the minute’s silence has every chance of working. [...]

Clash of the Rivals – United, City, Arsenal and Spurs

It’s not too often you’ll hear me urging City up the field, scolding them rather than laughing when they screw up, but today they are taking on Arsenal at the council house. After going 2-0 down, it looked as though it was game over and I was just about to switch off, but we were [...]

Liverpool? City? Or United? Munich Memorial Picture Vandalised

Whilst the Munich memorial picture which hangs from the East Stand is less than perfect, with the words originally printed incorrectly and an AIG logo situated at the bottom, there is no doubting it is an impressive site. With the 50th anniversary of the tragedy approaching, much of the red focus is on our players [...]

United ALWAYS Get The Tough Draw…Unlike Chelsea and Liverpool

After United were drawn against Arsenal in the 5th Round of the FA, I was curious to see just how many times we’ve had to play Premiership opposition over recent years. It feels as though we always get the tough draws and I wanted to see how true that intuition was. It turned out to be [...]

Liverpool – You Know It’s Getting Bad When…

When Sir Alex Ferguson cited “knocking Liverpool off their fucking perch” as his greatest challenge, he confirmed what we already knew, that his feelings towards the dippers resembled that of the fanbase. Hate is the word that springs to mind. As United manager, Ferguson only had to endure seeing Liverpool lift the title twice, back [...]

Essien: Roy Keane Is My Hero

“It is tedious to lose one of the best players in Europe but he has not left yet,” said Jean-Michel Aulus, the Lyon president. “We can still find a compromise so that he only leaves next year. Chelsea will have to show themselves to be very persuasive for us to let him leave. Manchester United [...]

You Expect City To Respect Munich? Get Real!

“Munich bastards!” a City fan shouted at my dad and me as we approached the council house for our game towards the close of last season. We’d just driven in to town, found a carpark close to the ground, and set off on the walk. Seemed like a fairly good idea at the time. It [...]

United Surprise At Arsenal’s Season

“Name on the trophy” the commentator boomed that night at the Nou Camp. It was all ours. United fans would be forgiven for feeling the same way about the Premiership at the start of this season. We’d seen off Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea the season before, leading the table from the beginning, Arsenal were a team [...]
