Aaron Ramsey Talking Nonsense

Aaron Ramsey has today claimed the reason why he joined Arsenal instead of United was because he was made to feel more wanted and he thought Wenger had brought through a lot more youngsters and given them a chance. Given that he is a self-confessed Manchester United fan, you have to worry he knows so [...]

Fergie: Wenger Let Himself Down With Fletch Comments

After Manchester United robbed Arsenal earlier in the season, thanks to poor judgement from Almunia and an own goal from Diaby, Arsene Wenger took his frustrations out on Darren Fletcher. This season, Fletcher has committed fewer fouls than Song and Diaby, despite playing in more games, yet Wenger took the childish move of branding Fletch [...]

STATS: Carlos Tevez vs Dimitar Berbatov at Manchester United

After Sir Alex Ferguson’s comments that he has no regrets over Carlos Tevez leaving, many fans have compared the Argie’s strike rate this season at City with Dimitar Berbatov at United. It wasn’t a case of buying Berbatov or buying Tevez, as the transfer money for Dimitar had already been paid whilst Tevez was on [...]

STATS: United vs City – The Best Supported Club Since The 1940′s and Before Premiership?

Yesterday, Manchester City still hadn’t sold all their tickets for the League Cup semi-final which was due to be played the following day. On the Monday, it was announced that any season ticket holder or membership holder could purchase an additional two tickets. Given that City haven’t played in the semi-final for 28 years I [...]

STATS: Cole + RvN > Torres

Fernando Torres scored 50 league goals in just 72 games. Wow. Incredible. He is the only Liverpool to achieve such a feat. We’ll ignore the fact that Andy Cole and Ruud van Nistelrooy did it faster.

STATS: Ronaldo vs Valencia

STATS: Ronaldo vs Valencia

Before we get in to this, the comparison between Cristiano Ronaldo and Antonio Valencia isn’t supposed to prove who is the better player. Ronaldo was bought for £80m the same summer Valencia was bought for £16m, it’s all to obvious who the better player is. However, it is interesting to see how Valencia is getting [...]

STATS: United This Season vs United Last Season

Having looked at the impact of Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure on the goalscoring of other players in the squad, and seeing the positive effect, I thought it would be interesting to compare like for like fixtures. The press wrote us off in the summer (but they did tip Liverpool to win the title, so we shouldn’t [...]

What Did We Say About Replacing Ronaldo’s Goals?

Last season United beat Everton 1-0 thanks to a penalty scored by Cristiano Ronaldo. This season, United beat Everton 3-0 thanks to goals from Darren Fletcher, Michael Carrick and Antonio Valencia. I’m not suggesting that United are better this season than they were last just because we beat a weaker Everton side by a larger [...]

Replacing Ronaldo – Obertan Or Nani?

Gabriel Obertan impressed for much of his début against Barnsley before looking tired in the final fifteen minutes or so. He kept the ball really well, ran at the opposition with speed and showed off his silky skills. He looks to be the real deal, regardless of what Larry White thinks. He’s only had one [...]

STATS: How’s Owen Doing So Far? Compared To Arsenal, Chelsea, City, Villa and Liverpool Strikers

I do like looking at statistics, so maybe you do too. With Michael Owen wanting emphasis to be put on his performances as well as the goals he scored, I thought it would be interesting to see how Owen compares to the top strikers in the league. These stats are never going to give you [...]

Rafa Is Right About The Money, Wrong About The Fans

“There is a massive difference in money but we have better fans than United.” I don’t know whether I’d describe the difference as ‘massive’, but yes, Rafael Benitez has spent more money than Sir Alex Ferguson.

Are Giggs And Neville Right About Footballers’ Salaries?

Are Giggs And Neville Right About Footballers’ Salaries?

Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs have both surprisingly spoken out about the controversial issue of football players earning every penny of their astronomically large salaries. When the starting salary for a nurse is £20k a year, a teacher is £21k a year and a police officer is £22k a year, it’s hard to argue that [...]
