Dawson Won’t Make A Fuss Of Ronaldo’s Petulance… But The FA Might

Cristiano Ronaldo showed himself up in Saturday’s draw with Tottenham Hotspur, unecessarily kicking out at Michael Dawson after they had challenged for the ball. As Dawson jogged to his box in preparation for the United throw, Ronaldo swung his leg out at the stand-in Spurs skipper, clipping his ankle. “It was petulance,” said Alan Shearer [...]

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 [...]

Scholes Doesn’t Want To Go To Japan

As the Champions of Europe, United are obligated to take part in the FIFA Club World Cup, which we have won before in 1999, meaning we’ll have even more games in hand on the teams above us in the table. United have played their last Premiership match until Boxing Day, with the lads set for [...]

Gary To Join Phil At Everton?

There are reports today suggesting that David Moyes is interested in bringing Gary Neville to Everton. Whilst there’s every chance that story is fabricated bullshit, it does raise some interesting questions. It has always been assumed that Neville would end his career with United, but now that he’s approaching 34-years-old and in possession of a [...]

Frustration For The Richest Club In The World’s Fans

Following Manchester City’s ninth defeat of the season, their fans kicked off, throwing missiles at the away end. After booing and jeering their own team off the pitch, tempers flared between both sets of supporters, with police having to get in between them and fight them off. Slapped wrists from the FA I imagine (no [...]

I Wonder If Fergie Knows About Nani’s Second Job…

With the Barcelona vs Real Madrid game failing to fulfil its potential, I had a flick through the channels and stumbled across the X Factor final. Oggled Ashley ‘Rent boy’ Cole’s wife a bit, listened to that irritating little Irish man witter on, then something quite remarkable happened. Obviously not content with his place on [...]

Opportunity Lost… Teams Have Sussed Us Out

I wonder when we will look like scoring again. The only league game in the past month or more where we’ve caused our opposition serious problems was against Stoke, when we battered them 5-0. Against the likes of Sunderland, City, Villa and Arsenal we have completely dominated the game, in terms of possession and shots, [...]

Don’t Suspend Rooney… Says Aalborg Player

Aalborg midfielder Kasper Risgaard has today claimed he doesn’t think UEFA should dish out any punishment for an alleged stamp by Wayne Rooney in United’s 2-2 draw with Aalborg this week. The press, as usual, made a big song and dance about it, much to Sir Alex Ferguson’s frustration. Risgaard has spoken to the press [...]

Teddy: Tottenham Will Abuse Berb Because He’s A Threat

Teddy Sheringham knows how Dimitar Berbatov will be feeling today, after he made the move from Tottenham to United after also believing Spurs didn’t match his personal ambitions as a player. “Ohhh Teddy, Teddy, went to Man United and he won fuck all!” were the chants after Sheringham’s first season with United. The following season [...]

Tottenham To Give Campbell Back Next Summer

The Dimitar Berbatov transfer worked out fairly well for United in the end. We didn’t get him for the price we wanted, but we got him, and that’s all that matters now. As a bonus, we also got to loan out Frazier Campbell to Spurs, who wouldn’t get a look in at United this year, [...]
