Mourinho Desperate For United Job… But No Plans For Replacement Yet

Jose Mourinho has an impressive resume, with his league titles and Portugal and England, as well as his European Cup win with Porto, yet he is still some way short of deserving a job at Manchester United. His success has always come upon inheriting top squads, with both Chelsea and Porto finishing 2nd in their [...]

Tevez Agent: He Is Staying…Despite Mischief Making

“It’s Now Or Tever For Carlos” read the clever headline from The Sun this week, suggesting that Carlos Tevez was on his way out of Manchester United if his future wasn’t sorted soon. The story claimed that his agent, Kia Joorabchian, was growing impatient with the delay in finalising a deal to keep Tevez at [...]

Why We Want Rooney To Mean What He Says

Since signing for United, Wayne Rooney has always had a brilliant relationship with our fans. Ignoring his great ability and the goals he scores for a minute, his passion and his determination to see that United win always keeps us on side. He could be having a lousy game, but he’d still got his song [...]

Saha: Everton Move A Step Down

Three former United players made up the Everton starting XI today, the most recent of these to move being Louis Saha, who spent too much time on the treatment table to keep his place in our squad. When fit for sustained periods of time, most recently for the first half of the 2006-2007 season, there [...]

Giggs Explains Why He Had A Go At Phil Neville

Giggs Explains Why He Had A Go At Phil Neville

As Cristiano Ronaldo was scrabbling to stay on his feet, Phil Neville bulldozed in to our winger, winning the ball with one foot, planting his studs in to Ronaldo’s knee with the other. Alan Wiley surely would have seemed to have had no option but to send off Wayne Rooney had he been guilty of [...]

Fergie Blames Ref For Rooney Substitution

Wayne Rooney was subbed off in our 1-1 draw with Everton today, much to the surprise of our fans. With over 20 minutes left to play, following an afternoon of abuse from the home fans, Rooney was booked for a ‘late challenge’ on Mikel Arteta. There was nothing in it really and certainly wasn’t worthy [...]

Hargreaves Update – Trip To Leicester For Specialist Next Week

Manchester United have played without our first choice four central midfielders following injuries and International duty. Whilst Ryan Giggs and Darren Fletcher are working hard to fill the void, which was illustrated in their play for our goal against Everton today, it can’t be ignored we’re missing the creativity Michael Carrick and Paul Scholes provide [...]

That Boy Giggsy, He’s Won It Ten Times

I was fairly critical of Ryan Giggs in our victory over West Brom last weekend. Whilst not an opinion shared by all, I just didn’t think he cut it at all in his new central midfield position. During the first 20 minutes in particular, he couldn’t seem to find any of our players with his [...]

Ferguson Explains Why Chelsea Are Favourites

Before a game had even been played this season, Chelsea were tipped as favourites to win the league, despite our Premiership and Champions League double in May, which saw us beat Chelsea to the prize on both occasions. As the season has gone on, this prediction has seemingly been confirmed with Chelsea six points clear [...]

Philip Neville’s Born and Bred

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Whilst committed to Everton, I wonder if Philip Neville ever wonders what might have been had he stuck it out at United. Just a couple of months after signing for Everton, Roy Keane walked out on Manchester United. The central midfield spot was filled by everyone from John O’Shea to [...]

Fergie: Arsenal Have A Better Chance Than Liverpool

People are getting fairly giddy over Liverpool’s good start to the season, in the same way they did following Arsenal’s good start last season. Whilst it was always clear that Arsenal’s squad was never going to be deep enough to claim the title, I can still appreciate that they were playing good football and got [...]

Fergie Responds To Ridiculous Rumours

Earlier in the week there were a couple of stories suggesting Owen Hargreaves and Carlos Tevez were on their way out of Manchester United. I doubted whether Sir Alex Ferguson would even take the time to grace the story with a response, but it seems after being asked about Hargreaves’ progress, our manager has decided [...]
