Much is made of the friendship between Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho, with both insisting on numerous occasions they have the greatest respect for one another. However, reports in this morning’s papers suggested that Mourinho had snubbed Ferguson after the game, refusing the shake hands, following the match in which United dominated.
I’ve always voiced my negative feeling on journalist Oliver Holt, who has repeatedly and unfairly ripped our club, manager and players apart. He once incredibly claimed that it was Sir Alex Ferguson’s fault that Wayne Rooney missed the World Cup, as Rooney was clearly riled at Stamford Bridge and should have been substituted. The fact [...]
Following the fretting over which players were going to start in defence for United tonight, following the injuries to the majority of our defenders, it has been confirmed that John O’Shea, and more importantly I’d say, Jonny Evans, have passed late fitness tests and will be in the starting XI. Van der Sar, O’Shea, Ferdinand, [...]
Patrick Vieira, who shat himself when confronted by Roy Keane ahead of our 10-man, 4-2 thumping of our former title rivals, has voiced his shock at being left out of Inter Milan’s 19-man squad tonight. The central midfielder, who has seen better days, was not picked by Jose Mourinho for what could be the most [...]
God only knows which players Sir Alex Ferguson will pick at the back for today’s massive game against Inter Milan. As it stands, Fabio da Silva, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra are our only confirmed fit defenders for this evening, with Gary Neville, Wes Brown and Rafael da Silva all ruled out through injury, Nemanja [...]
News reports today have announced that Darren Fletcher’s home in Bowdon was robbed last night, with his missus and kids there, whilst Fletcher was in Italy ahead of our Champions League game with Inter Milan. Hayley Grice, who had Fletcher’s twin sons back in 2007, had a knife held to her throat as she was forced to [...]
“In 2004, Manchester United went out to a young Porto that nobody would have even bet a euro on winning and that’s football,” said Mourinho, ahead of today’s match against Inter Milan. Oh yes, I remember, when a linesman failed to see the three players playing Paul Scholes on side and disallowed a goal that [...]
Well, you probably did anyway. This is the yet-to-be-aired Nike advert featuring our very own Rooney and Rio, as well as Chelsea’s Joe Cole and Liverpool’s Fernando Torres. Everyone who isn’t one of the cool crowd and doesn’t read RoM will see this ad during the half time of tomorrow’s Champions League game.
Cristiano Ronaldo had no problem putting Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his place, after Jose Mourinho claimed his striker was the better player of the two. Today, Ibrahimovic has claimed he wants to be better than Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov, ahead of the Champions League clash tomorrow.
Are Real Madrid favourites to win the Champions League? “No chance,” Ferguson responded bluntly. “Their game lacks pace. They have great players like Heinze, Cannavaro, Gago, but they aren’t quick. There is Robben, the only one who can give them some rhythm, but he isn’t very brave. The three English teams – Chelsea, Liverpool and [...]
