CHAMPIONEES!

CHAMPIONEES!

Manchester United, Premier League Champions again. Whilst in hindsight, United could have drawn 0-0 today, it felt like it was Ryan Giggs’ goal that made us Champions today. After the stick he’s (rightly) endured over the past few months, it is magical for him to score our second goal. Everything about United feels like it’s [...]

Today’s The Day – Can We Do It?

I write this before leaving for the pub on a glorious Mancunian day. Blue skies, the sun is shining…and I feel sick. A whole season’s work comes down to today. All the goals and saves and tackles and passes and fouls come down to this one day. Everything that has gone before, right back to [...]

Ronaldo At United For As Long As Fergie Is

Cristiano Ronaldo has had a superb season. Looking back over our recent period of general domination, I struggle to think of a player who has been as effective for the team as Ronaldo has been this term. This of course means he is linked with a move away from the club on a fairly regular [...]

United Players Would Sacrifice Anything For The Team

Manchester United fans can be guilty of having a certain snobbery when it comes to loyalty players from other teams show to their clubs. Recent examples of Ashley Cole stabbing his boyhood club in the back for the money and promise of success at Chelsea, as well as Steven Gerrard handing in two transfer requests [...]

Winning The League On Goal Difference Takes Away From Success?

If Manchester United match Chelsea’s result this weekend, whether that is win, lose or draw, we will win the league by goal difference alone. We currently have a difference superior by 17 goals, thanks to our great scoring and defensive records. Whilst Ronaldo has stolen most of the headlines this season, there has still been [...]

Why Are Chelsea Questioning Wigan’s Integrity? Look At Bolton!

Following a week where so much press attention has focussed on whether Wigan will put up a fight against United on Sunday, Ferguson has fought back. Several Chelsea players have been putting pressure on Wigan to do their job and show up against the Champions in the crucial final game of the season, however today, [...]

Yet Even More Desperation From Chelsea

Earlier in the week I looked at how desperate Chelsea players were starting to look as the final day of the season gets closer. United just need to match or better Chelsea’s result against Bolton on Sunday to claim the league, so are certainly favourites to win the title. However, Chelsea players are keen to insist [...]

You’re Not Special Anymore! The Decline of Jose Mourinho In Full

I remember distinctly reading the newspaper on the morning of our opening game of the 2004-2005 season and feeling utterly disheartened. For a United fan, the first day of the season had always been one filled with so much hope, regardless of what we’d won the season before. If we hadn’t won the league, I’d [...]

New United Shirts Revealed

It’s that time of year again. The trophies are dished out, United are linked to every player going, and new kits are “leaked” on the net. Well, no trophies yet, and I’m not getting too excited about our potential targets, so here are pictures of potentially our new away kit next season.

Desperate Chelsea Players Put Pressure On Wigan

A win at the JJB stadium for United this weekend will secure our status and Champions. With Wigan having nothing to play for and being managed by former United captain, Steve Bruce, the nerves are starting to get to Chelsea. John Terry was the first to speak out, attempting to appeal to Wigan’s better nature, [...]

VIDEO: From The Stands vs West Ham including Fergie Speech

Saturday saw United’s land home game of the season, which ended in a 4-1 victory for the reds. Before kick off, I was apprehensive over how we would play. Upon hearing that there were no changes to the team that beat Barcelona to progress to the European Cup final four days before, we could be [...]

Noises From The Chelsea Camp

Manchester United and Chelsea are battling it out for silverware again this season, just as they were last. United claimed the title, whilst Chelsea beat us in the FA Cup final. There was no contest over who’d had the better season though. This season, we are faced with a similar situation, however the stakes are [...]

Will Rio Lift The Trophy?

Last season, Gary Neville missed the final couple of months due to an injury he suffered against Bolton. This paved the way for Ryan Giggs to captain us until the end of the season, meaning he lifted the trophy last May with Neville. Whilst the worst seems over for Neville, he has missed all of [...]

Rio: Rooney Gave Me GoalKeeping Advice

Had Cristiano Ronaldo not shown himself as the best player in the World this season, Rio Ferdinand certainly would have been our best performing player. His consistancy and strength have been admirable, with him keeping some of the best strikers in the World, from Fernando Torres to Samuel Eto’o, unusually quiet. Aside from being a [...]

A Year On…Is This The Day We Beat Chelsea To The Title Again?

May 5th 2007 A lacklustre performance at the Wastelands on the Saturday, just three days after being knocked out of the European Cup in Italy against Milan, saw United on the brink of securing our first title since 2003. We had lead the table all season, Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea drifting within three points of us [...]
