Rio Better Than Chelsea’s Terry and Liverpool’s Carragher?

Rio Ferdinand is a player that I have taken several years to warm to, with the player’s change in attitude aiding my change in opinion. Whilst he has matured immensely in his time at United, his form has improved every season, which culminated in last season’s brilliantly reliable presence that he provided. Had Ronaldo not [...]

Spurs Mug – Fergie Embarrasses Levy

Like the dippers, plenty of Spurs fans seem to get through the season on the ‘next year’ mentality.

How Do We Keep Ronaldo? Replace Queiroz With Banto

When the news was finally confirmed that Carlos Queiroz was leaving Manchester United to become manager of Portugal, I was honestly absolutely gutted.

What Does the Guvnor’s Appointment Say About Fergie?

Paul Ince had the potential to go down as one of the Old Trafford greats. He was cocky and cheeky but had the ability to back it up. The self-named Guvnor thought he was bigger and better than what United had to offer, so Fergie got rid, making £7 million on him in 1995. Ince [...]
