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 [...]

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

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 [...]

He’s Won It 10 Times – Giggsy and Fergie

When United won the league last season, I was made up to find a clip on YouTube of the dressing room celebrations from our lads. They soaked each other with champagne and sung the fans’ songs, and generally just looked delighted. Sir Bobby Charlton milled around, watching the celebrations. “He’s won it nine times, he’s [...]
