Carlos Tevez Is Worth Every Penny

It’s not often you seen United go a couple of goals down. It felt weird watching the match last night and seeing that happen. Of course, it was fully deserved, we were dreadful at times, but it was still an odd feeling. Had we won, I would have been pleased. You always want your team [...]

What Do You Make Of Scholes’ Sending Off?

Paul Scholes got sent off in yesterday’s defeat to Zenit St Petersburg for a second bookable offence. Just before the whistle sounded to signal the end of the first half, Scholes got booked for one of his typical late challenges, no bother. However, with time running out, Scholes angled the ball perfectly in to the [...]

Who’s Haaland Trying To Kid?

Before I get too deep in to this article, I want to make it clear at no point do I agree with or condone what Roy Keane did to Alfe-Inge Haaland. Whilst it’s always good to see tough battles for the ball between our players and our opponents, particularly our hated rivals, there’s no way [...]

Keane Ready for Hughes’ City Battle

Roy Keane will be reunited with former team mate Mark Hughes at the Stadium of Light. Whilst the managers have faced each other before, this will be the first time Roy does so with Hughes as City manager. Following Keano’s “challenge” on Alf-Inge Haaland, he is set to be in for a rough reception. Whilst [...]

Arsenal’s Wenger: United, Liverpool and Chelsea Should Be Kicked Out Of Europe

“Who put the ball in Arsenal’s net? All of fucking Europe,” used to be the chant sung, following Arsenal’s poor record in Europe. When United won it in 1999, Wenger’s team couldn’t get out of the group stages, with Lens and Dynamo Kyiv finishing above them. It was the same story the following season, with [...]

More Kenyon Embarrassment

Just yesterday I was having a good laugh at Peter Kenyon, who after two games in a Chelsea shirt, claimed Deco was the transfer deal of the summer. 2 goals in 2 games, 1 good performance 1 crap performance, and Kenyon thinks they’ve got Kaka on their hands. Before making such ridiculous comments, Kenyon probably [...]

Vidic Might Be Miserable…But We’re Singing In The Rain

Vidic Might Be Miserable…But We’re Singing In The Rain

Nemanja was quoted as saying some not very nice things about Manchester this week, which he has since denied, although some have doubted how sincere his denial of the comments were. It’s a bit shady isn’t it? He hasn’t denied the interview took place, but claims he was just trying to get across the negative [...]

Hargreaves Asked To Be Withdrawn

Reports suggest that Owen Hargreaves has asked to be withdrawn from the squad before we face Zenit St Petersburg in tonight’s UEFA Super Cup, after admitting he doesn’t feel fully fit. Sir Alex Ferguson had said just yesterday that Hargreaves would be playing, but would not be able to feature for England’s World Cup qualifying [...]

You Mean, Saha Actually Has To Pass A Medical??

Louis Saha is a player I’ve stuck up for on numerous occasions, before my patience ran out. It’s not him personally, I’m sure he’s fine, but we simply cannot afford to be relying on a player who is injured as often as he is. He is the only player we have in his position, which [...]

Fergie Ready To Take On Capello Over Hargreaves

Oh to be an England fan eh? Booing your players off the park at half time, getting your face painted before pointless friendlies, forking out a tenner for a programme, watching a bunch over over-paid under-motivated players running about, winning nothing. All it all, it has to be said it’s not the life I aspire [...]

Rooney Disappointed By Final Sub

Rooney Disappointed By Final Sub

Whilst all the media hype revolved around Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of our Champions League final, questions on whether he could perform on the big stage (although if scoring in the FA and League Cup finals, as well as against Liverpool, Arsenal and City, and being the top scorer in the CL doesn’t make him a [...]

If You Think We’re Good Now… Wait Until Our Players Mature

Ahead of Manchester United’s UEFA Super Cup game against Zenit St Petersburg, Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken about the big future he predicts for this current team, the strongest in his reign at United. Whilst Fergie suffered much criticism for only winning one European Cup (whilst ignoring that one of our strongest teams, the Double [...]

City Beat Midget Land On Pens

The European dream is still alive and well for our neighbours on the bitter side of town. After losing to the Danish side that finished 2nd last season (behind the Aalborg BK who was drawn in our group yesterday) a couple of weeks ago, and the fans booing Hughes’ team off the pitch, they overcame [...]

United’s Rivals?

Last week I asked who United’s biggest rivals were, following a survey of thousands of football fans of teams in all leagues in England. The fans in this survey regarded Liverpool as our biggest rivals, then City then Arsenal. How did RoM readers vote? ———— The Republik of Mancunia has brought out a brilliant downloadable [...]
