“Huntelaar To United? Maybe, Why Not?”

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was a player who topped many United fans’ wishlists for years, although his big move to Real Madrid seemed to signal the end of any possibility of him coming to United. If we were going to get him, then surely it had to be when he made his first big move away from [...]

Amazingly, the 16-year-old spoke with Ferguson in English for a whole hour, although I wonder whether the length of time was more to do with the player needing Fergie to keep repeating what he was [...]

God No, Not Michael Owen

God No, Not Michael Owen
