Top Five Manchester United Moments in 2016/17 (Part 1)

Every club has its moments - good and bad, in a football season. Manchester United are not an exception to the rule and while the Premier League campaign was largely uninteresting and uninspiring, there have been some interesting narratives and flash points that have featured across the 62-game slug-fest as Mourinho saw off his first campaign with two trophies (he could argue 3) and Champions League qualification. I would like to share my top five in two parts - this …
Manchester United vs Ajax | Europa League Final Preview

Manchester United vs Ajax | Europa League Final Preview

On May 24th, Ajax and Manchester United will meet at the Friends Arena in Stockholm for the Europa League final. Manchester United essentially have their season riding on this match.  They failed to get into the Champions League places after a bitterly disappointing league campaign saw them finish sixth.  They did win the EFL Cup, but a loss in this match would see this season end as a failure.  Manchester United cannot afford to miss out of the Champions League for …
Win against Palace shows a glimpse of future at Old Trafford

Win against Palace shows a glimpse of future at Old Trafford

Manchester United won their final game of the Premier League at home against Crystal Palace - the sort of team they usually came up short against, over the course of the season, which has played a significant role in derailing their ambitions to at least finish in one of the Champions League positions. The Red Devils have, as a result, finished outside the safety net that is top four for the second successive campaign in a row - and below their …

Manchester United v Crystal Palace Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

As another Premier League season comes to an end, Manchester United host Crystal Palace to play what is the quintessential definition of a dead rubber. Premise  United are guaranteed to finish, yes you guessed it right, 6th in the league, regardless of the outcome of Sunday's football match. The Red Devils have put all the eggs in the Europa League basket and paid the price for a lack of complete focus on the Premier League games which has made a …
Where Would James Rodriguez Fit in at Manchester United?

Where Would James Rodriguez Fit in at Manchester United?

There has been a lot of talk in recent days that Manchester United are leading the race for James Rodriguez. Sky Sports reported that the Colombian international has been offered to the Europa League finalists and Sky Bet then went on to suspend betting on the transfer. Some cynics have suggested that the story was put out there by the former in order for them to make money through the latter, but this is a story that won't go away …
Mourinho’s Europa League Gamble Could Prove Expensive for Manchester United

Mourinho’s Europa League Gamble Could Prove Expensive for Manchester United

In the last few days, we have heard some very interesting things from Premier League managers. Pep Guardiola had a “Big Club” gaffe when he said that Barcelona or Bayern would have sacked him for a trophy-less season. Last week, Jurgen Klopp was found wondering why Southampton seemed to have relaxed against Arsenal after giving Liverpool a very tough game. When this was followed by Liverpool thrashing West Ham 4-0 at London Stadium, Arsene Wenger wondered aloud about whether some …
