Hargreaves Update – Trip To Leicester For Specialist Next Week

Manchester United have played without our first choice four central midfielders following injuries and International duty. Whilst Ryan Giggs and Darren Fletcher are working hard to fill the void, which was illustrated in their play for our goal against Everton today, it can’t be ignored we’re missing the creativity Michael Carrick and Paul Scholes provide [...]

That Boy Giggsy, He’s Won It Ten Times

I was fairly critical of Ryan Giggs in our victory over West Brom last weekend. Whilst not an opinion shared by all, I just didn’t think he cut it at all in his new central midfield position. During the first 20 minutes in particular, he couldn’t seem to find any of our players with his [...]

Ferguson Explains Why Chelsea Are Favourites

Before a game had even been played this season, Chelsea were tipped as favourites to win the league, despite our Premiership and Champions League double in May, which saw us beat Chelsea to the prize on both occasions. As the season has gone on, this prediction has seemingly been confirmed with Chelsea six points clear [...]

Philip Neville’s Born and Bred

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Whilst committed to Everton, I wonder if Philip Neville ever wonders what might have been had he stuck it out at United. Just a couple of months after signing for Everton, Roy Keane walked out on Manchester United. The central midfield spot was filled by everyone from John O’Shea to [...]

Fergie: Arsenal Have A Better Chance Than Liverpool

People are getting fairly giddy over Liverpool’s good start to the season, in the same way they did following Arsenal’s good start last season. Whilst it was always clear that Arsenal’s squad was never going to be deep enough to claim the title, I can still appreciate that they were playing good football and got [...]

Fergie Responds To Ridiculous Rumours

Earlier in the week there were a couple of stories suggesting Owen Hargreaves and Carlos Tevez were on their way out of Manchester United. I doubted whether Sir Alex Ferguson would even take the time to grace the story with a response, but it seems after being asked about Hargreaves’ progress, our manager has decided [...]

Real Madrid Won’t Chase ‘Nice and Friendly’ United’s Players Anymore

The fuss surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s potential move to Real Madrid this summer was ridiculous. It dominated the media towarsd the close of the season, completely overwhelmed everyone during Euro 2008, and continued deep in to the pre-season. After speaking with Sir Alex Ferguson, Ronaldo decided that he wanted to stay at United, rather than force [...]

England Bigger Than United? I Don’t THINK So Mr Chelsea

England Bigger Than United? I Don’t THINK So Mr Chelsea

There are always going to be players from the opposition teams that you dislike, whilst every now and again there will be a player you begrudgingly think highly of. It’s hard to imagine it now, but John Terry was actually a player I thought highly of. He seemed pretty decent. However, his nature over the [...]

Manucho Sets Up Possebon In Return Reserves Victory Over City

After suffering what looked to be a horrific injury following a tackle from Middlesbrough’s Emanuel Pogatetz in the League Cup, Rodrigo Possebon played for United Reserves tonight. He was given gas as he was carried off the field, leading us to believe he’d broken his leg. However, tonight he made his come back in our [...]

Rooney: It Would Be Sweet To Get 100th Goal Against Everton

“Remember the name, Wayne Rooney!” the commentator said, after watching a 16-year-old Rooney score a superb goal against Arsenal whilst playing for Everton. This was the goal that ended their 30-match unbeaten run, whilst also making him the youngest scorer in Premiership history. He was making his 10th appearance for Everton, after scoring a brace [...]

Wayne Rooney’s Record Should Be Better

Wayne Rooney’s Record Should Be Better

Wayne Rooney is enjoying fabulous form for Manchester United, as he usually he does during this time of year. Whilst his goals are an obvious indicator of his great form, and what is picked up in the press, it’s his all-round game which I’m most impressed with. He’s at the centre of everything, the Midas [...]

Mourinho: Drogba Dives…Like Ronaldo, Torres and van Persie

Cristiano Ronaldo’s diving is an issue which I have a mixed approach to. Whilst I can’t abide by cheating and trying to con the referee, until there’s video technology, maybe you do need to do all you can to get the decisions, because you often won’t get them when you deserve them. Ronaldo is kicked [...]

Like The Sound Of This Da Silva Chant?

One thing that always impresses me about United’s support, despite the flack our fans receive, is the vast songsheet we have. New songs are churned out on a regular basis with a lot of these being sung weekly at our home and away fixtures. It always amazes me when the away fans sing a song [...]
