Neville: I Hope Liverpool Don’t Pose A Threat To Our Title

“Gary Neville is a red, he hates scousers!” the fans sing. Aside from Neville’s no-nonsense approach to football, and his desire to stick by his team mates, it’s his strong feelings on Liverpool that have really endeared him to our fans. When Rio Ferdinand scored in the last minute against the dippers, Neville seemingly celebrated [...]

Does Ronaldo Care Less About Us?

Since playing for United again, following a summer of speculation and injury, much has been made of the fans’ reaction to Cristiano Ronaldo. He was fortunate to miss the first month of the season, as fans who were riled up over the summer and calmed down considerably a few weeks in, particularly after a string [...]

UNITED > England… Regardless of what ManUtd.com says

As a lad, I still gave a shit about England. Whilst being proud of my Mancunian roots, I enjoyed watching England play. I hear United fans talk about how you can do both, support our club and follow England passionately, but all that died out for me probably around Euro 96. Now, I can’t abide [...]

Liverpool’s Carragher Declares His Love For Ferguson…Again

Jamie Carragher, who was a self-confessed Everton fan whilst playing for Liverpool, has again confirmed his admiration for Sir Alex Ferguson. With snippits of his book being fed through in to the press, it was earlier revealed that Carragher regarded Fergie as ‘the master’. With more of his book making the headlines today, it seems [...]

Capello: England’s Flavour of the Month Can Improve

Wayne Rooney is flavour of the month for England at the moment, following a spell of hype surrounding his under form performances. There was plenty of talk of how long he’d gone without a goal, in terms of time, not matches, as that painted him in the worst light. Despite improving with every season since [...]

Real Madrid: Ronaldo Will Cost Us Less Next Summer

No introduction needed, so I’ll just get straight to it. “There is hope that next year he could be with us,” said Real Madrid manager, Bernd Schuster, today. “We must do everything possible because it is worth having this footballer. Madrid knows it and this year was already willing to pay a heavy price. Maybe [...]

How The Press Rated United’s England Players

How The Press Rated United’s England Players

Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown all played a big part in England’s 5-1 victory over Kazakhstan. Whilst the scoreline is not entirely reflective of the match, particularly when you consider the teams went in 0-0 at half time, our lads had a big part to play in the result. After the match, Oliver [...]

Wes: I Like Seeing My Name On The Scoresheet

My seat was in the East Stand when United took on Newcastle back in 2005. I always sit at the other end of the ground but I remember clearly where I was sat thanks to the wonderful view I had of probably the best goal I’ve ever seen at Old Trafford. United had gone a [...]

It’s All About United As England Beat Kazakhstan

Rio Ferdinand, who was oddly overlooked for captaincy by Fabio Capello, lead out England tonight, filling in for TinyTears’ who is struggling to overcome a reoccurring back injury. Playing for his country means a lot to Rio and he would be right to feel hard done by after missing out on the permanent captaincy, particularly [...]

Wes: I’m Not Playing Right-Back For Good

Wes Brown played in more games for us last season than any other player, filling in for our injured captain, Gary Neville. Brown is a solid defender, who is better than any other we have at putting the ball and the man in to the stands. Much fuss was made of his reluctance to sign [...]

Injuries: Carrick and Hargreaves To Create Midfield Problem

During the pre-season I started to wonder how on earth we were going to pick our strongest XI. With all players available, it was looking as though one of Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov and Carlos Tevez would have to be dropped, whilst just two players from the group of Owen Hargreaves, Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, [...]

Van der Sar: Berbatov Gives Us Something New

Edwin Van der Sar has faced criticism this season, labelled as a keeper in his decline. People are far too quick to forget that just five months ago he made the save that won United the European Cup. He knew which way Nicolas Anelka was going to kick the ball, yet pointed in the other [...]

Ronaldo Was Too Eager To Replace Figo… Much To Scolari’s Annoyance

Cristiano Ronaldo has also been determined to become the best player in the World. When he arrived in England, dubbed a ‘one-trick pony’ by many, he never let the criticism stand between him and his goal. So he’s made it, although is still waiting on being awarded the official honour in December, and there’s no [...]

Giggs: My Parents Needed Convincing About Signing For United

Ryan Giggs is a player who will be appreciated properly once he retires. Having played in our first team for eighteen years, winning more league titles than any other player to ever play in England, as well as two European Cups, you’d think the praise would come in abundance. However, Giggsy is a player who [...]
