Just How Far Will We Have To Travel This Year Compared To Chelsea and Liverpool?

Whilst avoiding German champions Wolfsburg would have been favourable, in terms of difficulty we managed to avoid some of the tougher teams in the Champions League draw. Sir Alex Ferguson reckons we’ve got the toughest group of all English teams though because of the distance we have to travel. So just how far are we [...]

“Kiko And Welbeck Not Good Enough Yet”

“Sir Alex Ferguson would have us believe he is quite happy with his squad going into their defence of their Premier League crown,” said Stan YSB Collymore. “Yet I still think United look a lot weaker than last term following the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez. Federico Macheda and Danny Welbeck, as I [...]

So They’ll Have To Play Against 11 Men Next Season…?

Xabi Alonso is a great footballer but for some unknown reason Rafael Benitez has never seemed desperate to retain his services. For a couple of seasons there has been talk of Alonso joining Real Madrid and it’s always seemed absurd to me that the FSW has been so nonchalant it. Last summer he was seriously [...]

Carlitos’ Dreadful Miscalculation – He Played More Than Robinho!

Manchester City’s new signing, who said he ‘gave his life for the United shirt‘, claimed he was leaving for football reasons. The fact that City are prepared to pay £150,000-a-week for a player who was on £90,000-a-week at United did not factor in to Tevez’s decision, he claims. It wasn’t a move about money rather [...]

Why Do All These Deluded Scousers Believe FSW’s Lies?

Why Do All These Deluded Scousers Believe FSW’s Lies?

Rafael Benitez’s ‘facts’ episode was a source of much amusement for Manchester United fans last season, given that the opinions he was insisting were facts were nothing of the sort. Another of Benitez’s lies is that Manchester United spend more money than Liverpool FC in the transfer market. Sir Alex Ferguson corrected Benitez at the [...]

We Often Score Six But We Seldom Score Ten…?

We are just one of those teams that you see now and then. We often score six but we seldom score ten. How true is that?

Would We Want Linked Arsenal Striker At United?

Robin van Persie is one of those nasty Dutch bastards who you love when they play for you and hate when they play against you. Whilst I can understand why rival fans wouldn’t like him too much, I’ve always really rated him. It’s rare that I have such a high opinion of a rival team’s [...]

We all know how many more trophies than Liverpool we won this season but how many more games have we had to stretch ourselves over to win the league early?

Berbatov – One Of Football’s Biggest Ever Transfer Flops

The Daily Mail has Dimitar Berbatov as the 40th biggest transfer flop in the history of the Premier League, making him a bigger disaster than Reyes’ £17 million move to Arsenal in 2004, Wright-Phillips’ £21 million move to Chelsea, Pennant to Liverpool, Deco to Chelsea, and even David fucking Bellion! I’d argue Berbatov isn’t a [...]

Is Everton Boss Right About Riley?

He’s awarded 2 penalties in 08/09. None of them are to any top four club. He awarded 7 penalties in 07/08. None of them were to any top four club. He awarded 6 penalties in 06/07. Two of them were to Arsenal, one of them was for United. He awarded 8 penalties in 05/06. Two [...]

Fixture Fight: We’re Looking Good In Comparison To Chelsea

With United trailing behind Chelsea and Liverpool this season, I have often stressed the point that we have played much more difficult fixtures this season. This is not a whiny excuse, rather a pretty reasonable explanation. Our performances haven’t been anything special, but then, neither have Chelsea’s or Liverpool’s. However, we have now played the [...]

Tickets Prices: The facts MUST will be presenting today

In 1960 you could pay 12p on the gate to get in to Old Trafford and purchase a programme for 2p. Those were the days, the old fellas at the pub will tell you, when you could show up on the day and squeeze yourself in to one of the stands. Things have changed considerably [...]
