Crazy ol Rafa is talking “facts” again. “Check the figures,” Benítez said. “It doesn’t matter what Ferguson says about money. They have more money and can spend more than us, so we have to manage and do our best in every single deal.” Wrong again!
Not the usual news story but an argued point of view.
Jose Mourinho has no interest in bringing youth through. Jose Mourinho is entirely clueless in the transfer market (just compare the team he was given by Ranieri to the team he left Grant with). Jose Mourinho does not know how to be successful by playing attacking football. Yet alarmingly, some reds think he’s the man [...]
With time running out on Sir Alex Ferguson’s career, panic sets in whenever I start to think about the reality of this. Until very recently, there have been no genuine candidates for the job, as far as I’ve been concerned. Whilst when one of our players looks set to retire and move on you find [...]
Ahead of United’s match against Middlesbrough on Monday, Ferguson spoke of a need to end a feud between the two clubs. “Over the years we have had some contentious games, culminating earlier in the season with the Carling Cup tie,” said Ferguson. “A terrible tackle put Rodrigo Possebon out of the game but could easily [...]
Cristiano Ronaldo was strangled in the box by Emanuel Pogatetz on Monday night during our 1-0 win over Middlesbrough. This goes without saying that a penalty and red card should have been awarded. However, I understand the referee isn’t always going to get it right and can’t be watching everything that is going on. I [...]
Cristiano Ronaldo was awarded a penalty against Middlesbrough the season before last. Had Ronaldo stayed on his feet, he would have had an open net to score in. He was unable to stay on his feet, won a penalty, and Louis Saha got the glory as the goalscorer. Whilst Mark Schwarzer did not make any [...]
Rival fans will tell us we’re foolish for falling for the siege mentality Sir Alex Ferguson tries to instil in his players when we claim the FA are against us. Rival fans cite unfairly awarded penalties, players escaping red cards, more injury time allowed, and the like, as proof we are treated well by the [...]
Sir Alex Ferguson was talking about the league fixtures handicapping us this week, looking at the difficult games we’ve been forced in to playing so early on in the season. Of course, the other side of this is that we’ll have an easier second half of the season, but by which point, we could be [...]
Since signing for United, Wayne Rooney has always had a brilliant relationship with our fans. Ignoring his great ability and the goals he scores for a minute, his passion and his determination to see that United win always keeps us on side. He could be having a lousy game, but he’d still got his song [...]
It’s funny how this myth goes around that Manchester is a City supporting location. Mancunians opt to support the blues, whilst United fans claim their fanbase from the home counties. Of course, this is perfect logic, isn’t it? One of the most widely supported clubs in the World couldn’t possible appeal to people from Manchester, [...]
Every now and again when United are playing an FA Cup game, the commentators will remind us how we chose to withdraw from the competition in 1999-2000, following our historic Treble winning season. Instead of taking part in one of the most prestigious cup competitions in the world, United instead took part in the World [...]
