The FA Cup Final 2018: Chelsea v Manchester United Preview

This year in the FA Cup final, we will see two real heavyweights clash against each other in a bid to get their hands on the beautifully designed trophy and make amends for an otherwise underwhelming domestic campaign. This is all the more true for Chelsea football club whose decline has been every bit as rapid as it was expected after a poor transfer window.

Why Fred would be a good signing for Manchester United

Why Fred would be a good signing for Manchester United

Manchester United made progress this season and finished 2nd in the Premier League. This was their highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and it is important that they have a positive summer to build on the current foundations. They have been active in the transfer window in recent years, with big name signings such as Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku arriving at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho will be keen to make more quality additions as he attempts …
Manchester United Transfer Index: Luke Shaw

Manchester United Transfer Index: Luke Shaw

As part of my weekly Manchester United transfer series, I decided to look at the career of Luke Shaw at Manchester United, the present and whether or not there is a future for the young Englishman at Old Trafford beyond the Summer of 2018. It is easy to forget some of the more simpler issues - amidst the whole argument surrounding United's Premier League season with it dividing opinion among the fans, progress versus the lack of entertainment, possibility of …

Manchester United v Watford Preview: Team News, Stats & Key Men

As the Premier League draws to a close, Manchester United welcome Watford for the final game of 2017/18 as they look to finish with more than 80 points on board for the first time since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Manchester United Transfer Index: Matteo Darmian

Manchester United Transfer Index: Matteo Darmian

After looking at the future of Daley Blind in my first of the Transfer Index Series of articles, this week we will be evaluating the prospects of Italian Matteo Darmian staying at Old Trafford for the next season and beyond, under Jose Mourinho. When the Italian arrived from Torino for a reasonable fee under £15-million, there was a case for optimism for the supporters. This was Louis van Gaal making a shrewd acquisition in the Summer to address what had …

Manchester United need to extend the contract of Marouane Fellaini

Manchester United are facing another huge summer as they attempt to climb back on top of English football after several years of rebuilding. Jose Mourinho has made progress since taking over, but he is yet to lift a league title and that will be the club’s aim of next season. The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and it is a landmark that needs to be achieved if the world is going to …
Manchester United and Arsenal Play out a Borefest in Wenger's Finale

Manchester United and Arsenal Play out a Borefest in Wenger's Finale

Lacking in intensity and urgency, the final game between Manchester United and Arsene Wenger's Arsenal was everything the fixture had been reduced to in the last decade.  As Arsene Wenger was welcomed with a standing ovation and a short commemoration ceremony that involved former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and the incumbent manager Jose Mourinho (slightly reluctantly, if I may) congratulating the Frenchman on a fine career, there was a sharp indication as to how little the game that …
