Fergie: Arsenal Rivalry Bigger Than Chelsea’s

Manchester United take on Chelsea this weekend, in a match the blues will certainly be eager to win after losing out to us in the Premiership and European Cup final last season.

What’s Pally Been Smoking?

We’ve heard quite a lot from our former defender, Gary Pallister, over recent weeks. It was only the other day he was praising United and insisting this wasn’t going to be Liverpool’s year. However, following our 0-0 draw with Villarreal, he’s come out with some rather odd comments, suggesting maybe he hasn’t been paying as [...]

Ronaldo: They Will Kick Me But I’ll Keep My Cool

Earlier in the week, Sir Alex Ferguson played down the idea that Cristiano Ronaldo would be featuring against Chelsea at the weekend, saying, “that was his first game back so it is a big ask to think about Sunday,” after the Villarreal match. However, Ronaldo seems mentally prepared for the challenges that will come his [...]

Out With The Old And In With The New? Evans To Replace Neville

Gary Neville’s injury got fairly tedious for the fans last season. He was forever on the verge of a comeback, yet at the last minute, there’d always be another set back. He’d get an odd game for the Reserves here and there, then pick up another injury. Neville finally returned to the first team in [...]

Giggs: I’ve Just Been Lucky

Whilst Ryan Giggs is a player loved by many, I can’t help but think it will take his retirement to make people understand exactly what he’s achieved in his years at Manchester United.

Evra: Easy To Win, Hard To Retain

Manchester United players seem up for the challenge of retaining the Champions League crown, something no other team has yet managed. The defence of the trophy started fairly slowly last night, with a 0-0 draw to Villarreal at home, however Patrice Evra believes we’ve got it in us to rise to the challenge.

Small Details Make All The Difference

To finish the opening game of our Champions League title defence with a 0-0 is always going to be disappointing. Whilst missing a few players, we had enough quality on the field yesterday to beat Villarreal, especially based on the way our Spanish opponents played. However, it was just ‘one of those days’. Had we [...]

Can We Believe Ronaldo?

The fuss that surrounded Cristiano Ronaldo always appeared to be something that amused the winger, which frustrated our fans all the more. His comments about loving “playing in white”, when referring to the colours of his national team’s shirt during Euro 2008 wound us up good and proper. Our club had just helped him develop [...]

Lampard: We Can Deal With United At Their Strongest

Ahead of this weekend’s clash between Chelsea and Manchester United, Frank Lampard has spoken of his confidence of getting a result against us, with or without Ronaldo. The last time the clubs played each other was in the European Cup final, which of course United won. This came just days after we pipped them to [...]

Did We Miss A Trick With Senna?

Two years ago Sky Sports News reported that Manchester United had signed Marcos Senna for £3.5 million. Guillem Balague then announced the deal hadn’t yet been confirmed, but would be shortly, however for a fee closer to £6 million.
