Michael Ballack would have been perfect in Manchester United’s midfield following the departure of Roy Keane.

Frazier Campbell has scored three goals in his last two games for Tottenham Hotspur, getting a brace against the dippers last week.

Rio Ferdinand is a player I was happy to slate a few years back. He seemed to represent too many of the bad things about football and I felt little to no affiliation with him. Sure, he played for United and was a good enough defender, but his attitude was all wrong. My opinion has [...]

Our Ridiculous Record Against Aston Villa – We’ll Never Win Anything

Whilst United have great records against a number of teams, it is rare to see a team that finishes in the top half of the table suffer so badly when playing us. Aston Villa’s record against us is absolutely ridiculously bad. It’s funny to think that the last time they got a result against us [...]
