Rampant Rom Runs Riot as Confident United put Four Past Joe Hart

If ‘Philosophy’ was the buzzword for Manchester United under Louis van Gaal – ‘Confidence’ is winning the race under Mourinho so far. From first whistle to the last, the result was never really in doubt – but it’s rather hard to find what has changed from last season when in November – United drew 1-1 against Slaven Bilic’s West Ham despite peppering the goal 17 times and scoring once with a 5% conversion rate. On Sunday however, a very similar …

Talking Points from United's Valiant Defeat in the UEFA Super Cup

Manchester United ended up on the losing side of a cup final for the first time in close to 14 months - after an inspired performance from Real Madrid ensured their fourth Super Cup win and a remarkable second (consecutive times) under Frenchman Zinedine Zidane.

Manchester United: 2017/18 Season Preview

Manchester United have had an eye-catching summer as they have made three high-profile signings to date and hope to make more before the end of the season. In his first season in charge, Jose Mourinho managed to win two trophies and has taken the club back into the Champions League, but an improvement is needed in the league if he is to secure his own position.

Manchester United have signed three players in this transfer window - their third and latest signing being Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, a player who would fill the defensive midfielder-shaped hole in the first team squad for the foreseeable future under Jose Mourinho. Another gap that needs plugging at United with a long-term view in mind is surprisingly at right full-back. Although the Red Devils are not short in quantity per se - with Players' Player of the Year in 2016/17 - Antonio …

Matic's Arrival May Also be Good News for Fellaini

Despite strong rumours linking Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini to Turkish giants Galatasaray, the Belgian was every bit as driven for the Red Devils in the facile 3-0 win in Oslo, as he has been under Jose Mourinho last season. Fellaini scored the opening goal - which, in a way, showcased what the 28-year old could do in an advanced position when he is delivered quality balls inside the box. More often than not, they have ended in the back …

Playing Musical Chairs - Exchanging Strikers with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal It’s crazy time. The Welcome To and Exit doors are swinging in and out and the new are replacing the old. Clubs are scurrying in hopes of improving their position in last season’s table or, in Chelsea’s case, hanging on to that coveted top slot.
