Mourinho's United signings: The good, the bad and the ugly

It's no secret that Manchester United spent big in the summer in an attempt to recapture the success which had made them one of the biggest clubs in Europe. Jose Mourinho was appointed as manager in May 2016 and he got straight to work, signing Eric Bailly in the hope of improving United's central defence. He followed it up with big-money moves for Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, as well as a high-profile signing in Zlatan Ibrahimovic. However, Mourinho's four …

Familiar Scoreline sees Man United through to an Unfamiliar Fixture

Manchester United drew 1-1 at Old Trafford for the 12th time in 2016/17 - although only on this occasion, the scoreline was actually enough for the Red Devils to reach the seventh European final in their history. In isolation, it was another poor display from Mourinho's men at home where their inability to win football matches has been well documented this campaign. Utterly dominated by the 12th placed side in La Liga both in terms of possession and clear-cut chances …

Manchester United walk a tightrope under Mourinho

It should not have lasted this long, in theory. But it has, at least until the half-time whistle at the Emirates thanks to Liverpool's tepid 0-0 stalemate against Southampton. Following the final whistle, marking Mourinho's first defeat in a competitive game at the hands of Wenger in 16 attempts, United's season has reached the stage where they know full well what they must to do to finish on a high - with two trophies in the bag and Champions League qualification …

Arsenal were humiliated at White Hart Lane on Sunday after a convincing defeat in the last ever North London Derby in the hallowed …
Three goalkeepers to target if David De Gea leaves

Three goalkeepers to target if David De Gea leaves

David De Gea faces another important decision this summer as interest from Real Madrid refuses to go away. Marca reported last week that the Spanish giants are determined to sign the goalkeeper and that he has already asked Manchester United to let him leave at the end of the season. A more recent report by ESPN states that the Spanish international won't force a move, but it is clear that a transfer away from Old Trafford is a real possibility. …
Who is Manchester United's Player of the Season?

Who is Manchester United's Player of the Season?

Player of the Season awards at Manchester United in the last three campaigns has been quite a sober affair, an approporiate reflection of the football on the pitch. Barring an inspiring alcohol-influenced speech from Louis van Gaal in the 14/15 edition - when he literally went 'YESSSSS we go for it' only to scrape fourth place in May, the awards have been largely deprived of things for fans and the club to shout about. If anything, the fact that the all …
