Simpson: My Experience Will Win Me Rafael’s Spot In The Team

Danny Simpson is starting to panic after watching Rafael Da Silva in action, and rightly so. The young Brazilian has impressed all when taking up that right back spot, with Sir Alex Ferguson singing his praises in the past week. Simpson looked decent enough in his outings last season, particularly in his Premiership game against [...]

Ruud: Ronaldo Will Be At Real Madrid Soon

Ruud van Nistelrooy’s scoring record at Manchester United was prolific. Whilst spending most of him time in the box, he put the ball away at ease time after time. Even in his last season, when he fell out of favour with the manager and played less, he finished the second highest scorer in the league. [...]

Rio: I Swear A Lot When We Score

Something that I’ve really grown fond of over the past season or more is watching Rio Ferdinand’s reaction when we score an important goal. Just check out YouTube clips of him after Owen Hargreaves scored against Arsenal, or Carlos Tevez against Blackburn, and you’ll see him go totally apeshit. Today, Ferdinand has answered a whole [...]

He’s Left Us Twice…But Would You Have Queiroz Back At United?

He’s Left Us Twice…But Would You Have Queiroz Back At United?

When there was speculation that Carlos Queiroz and Cristiano Ronaldo were set to leave us this summer, I was far more bothered about us losing out on our Assistant Manager. Whilst not popular to begin with, there is no denying what a massively positive impact he had on our team and our tactics towards the [...]

Fergie: We Finally Have A Class Of 96 Repeat

There are several phrases that get brought up time and again in football. “They think it’s all… it is now” is the most famous of these, whilst “…and Solskjaer has won it!” means the most to United fans. But a quote that is mentioned time and again for the wrong reasons in Alan Hansen’s “you’ll [...]

Fletcher For Captain

“I can’t understand why people in Scotland rave about Darren Fletcher,” Roy Keane said in that interview with MUTV, which ultimately saw him leave Old Trafford. I had to agree with him. It was 2005 and Fletcher was getting in our squad far too often. I’d complain about it, but then, we didn’t actually have [...]

Why Have We Not Signed Tevez Yet?

Around this time last season, Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that we would be making Carlos Tevez’s loan deal permanent, and that we would get him on the cheap. Tevez said the club was treating him well, meaning he was happy to stay for the next few years before returning to his beloved Boca Juniors. However, [...]

Stats To Prove United Are The Best

Ok ok, ‘we don’t need stats to prove that’ I hear you cry, and I agree with you. We can just look at our trophy cabinet if clarification of our greatness is required, but go with me on this one. I like a good old statistic, particularly the ones the commentators drag up during a [...]

United’s Budweiser Deal

Budweiser first became a sponsor of Manchester United in 2002, becoming the club’s ‘official’ beer. They have this status with several different teams and sports, ranging from MLS teams to the NBA, Major League Baseball and NASCAR racing. This sponsorship deal has been renewed with a contract that will see us until the end of [...]

Manchester IS Red… Even City Fans Agree

It’s funny how this myth goes around that Manchester is a City supporting location. Mancunians opt to support the blues, whilst United fans claim their fanbase from the home counties. Of course, this is perfect logic, isn’t it? One of the most widely supported clubs in the World couldn’t possible appeal to people from Manchester, [...]

Campbell: Tottenham Fans Like Me

Frazier Campbell had a stressful transfer deadline day, learning at the last minute that there was no chance of him being sold, rather he was on his way down south to play for Tottenham Hotspur. Whilst he wanted to stay and prove himself at United, he was happy to get experience from the London club. [...]

United Disrespected The FA Cup? That’s What The Media Would Have You Believe!

Every now and again when United are playing an FA Cup game, the commentators will remind us how we chose to withdraw from the competition in 1999-2000, following our historic Treble winning season. Instead of taking part in one of the most prestigious cup competitions in the world, United instead took part in the World [...]

Former FA Chief Reveals Neville’s England Strike Plan On Rio’s Behalf

The lengthy ban and extortionate fine dished out by the FA to Rio Ferdinand is something I have challenged time and again on this blog. There have been countless incidents which are comparable to that of Ferdinand, from Christian Negouai to Adrian Mutu, where their punishments were nowhere near as severe as that of Ferdinand. [...]

Dippers Reclaim “Murderers” Tag… and We’re Immoral For Singing About It?

As our players paraded the European Cup around the Luzhniki Stadium, our fans sang song after song about our success. With another trophy to our name, one of our chants was updated. “We’ve won it three times, we’ve won it three tiiiiiiimes, without killing anyone, we’ve won it three times.” This is a chant I’ve [...]

Wes and Rio In Nightclub Scuffle

There have been reports this morning that Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown, both of whom played against Blackburn on Saturday, and have been picked for Fabio Capello’s squad again, were involved in a bit of bother last night. Enjoying a night out in a member’s only bar in Manchester, the Circle Club, they ran in to [...]
