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. 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.

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.

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 [...]

United Always Deserving Of Their European Success…Unlike Liverpool and Milan

I have always been a firm believer of the idea that winning the league proves you are the best team in your country. Whilst you may have good fortune along the way, there are no “lucky” winners of the Premiership. If over 38 games you accumulate more points than any other team, then you are [...]

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 [...]

The Support Ronaldo Received Is Now Sickening

Steven Gerrard, who missed one of the penalties that saw England knocked out of the last World Cup, deflected any possible negative attention away from himself and in the direction of Ronaldo instead. “If it was one of my team-mates, I’d be absolutely disgusted in him because there’s no need for that,” said Gerrard. “I’ve [...]

Congratulations Chelsea’s Ballack On Fantastic Season

“[They are] not the Manchester of before,” Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in August 2005, after the player was linked with a move to United. “If I were a player, I would laugh about it.” “I just can’t imagine that he would go to Manchester United,” Rummenigge said in October 2005. “What would speak for Manchester and [...]
