Q & A with Stephen Tudor: Manchester Derby #175

Q & A with Stephen Tudor: Manchester Derby #175

As the 2017/18 season is gearing towards its first Manchester derby - the fixture this whole title race is almost entirely pivoted on, I decided to speak to Manchester City fan and freelance football writer Stephen Tudor to get his thoughts on how the game is viewed among the blues of Manchester and what Sunday's 175th encounter between the two clubs could mean to the Northern Powerhouse of Manchester and the Premier League in general. Stephen has written and continues …

Fantasy Premier League Insight – GW16 Derby Duels

The festive season is officially here, and with it, we have football on a regular basis. This is a stressful time of the year for FPL managers as players are constantly rotated. Let's look at some of the better options to guide you through this festive period. GW15 kicked off with Chelsea taking on Newcastle; Chelsea found themselves 0-1 down early on through a Dwight Gayle strike but showed quality to level and run out a comfortable 3-1 win. Eden Hazard …
Victor Lindelof is going to shape Manchester United's December

Victor Lindelof is going to shape Manchester United's December

Sometimes, all we need in life is a little push. In Victor Lindelof's case, it was a crunching sliding tackle. When Manchester United ended the transfer window with three new signings in the bag, the excitement and relief was palpable. This was Manchester United utilising a window to properly address their long-term weaknesses in the first team. A solid defensive midfielder to fill the void that Roy Keane's acrimonious departure had left. An out-and-out number 9 to boost the goal …

Champions League Group A Showdown: Man United v CSKA Preview

The group stage of the 2017/18 Champions League are approaching the end with teams across the eight groups scrambling to seal their place in the knock-out rounds next calendar year. In group A, Manchester United welcome CSKA Moscow - needing a point to ensure progression to the last 16 - as winners of the group. If you had told me after the dull defeat to Basel on matchday five that Manchester United would go on to win their next three …

Arsenal vs Manchester United Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

It's one of the great rivalries in British football - as Arsenal welcome Manchester United - and with the managers on the touch-line who themselves share an animosity that has come to define the Premier League in the last fifteen years, the expectations around this game have rarely been higher. Arsenal have firmly got themselves back in the mix. The Gunners will go into this game as one of the most in-form sides in the league - with five wins …
Win at Watford for Manchester United – What next?  

Win at Watford for Manchester United – What next?  

In a week where six points could be an incredible boost ahead of the usually hectic period just on the horizon, Manchester United completed phase one of their operation and quite remarkably so. Not only did they secure three vital points against a decent Watford side away from home, but they went about their business in style and suave. United score four (or more) goals in a game not for the first, second or the third time – but for …
Big Test for Manchester United at Watford - Premier League Preview

Big Test for Manchester United at Watford - Premier League Preview

Following back to back home wins, Manchester United will make the trip to Vicarage Road to face an in-form Watford at a really crucial phase of the season. Now Watford are in great shape under manager Marco Silva who has really put his stamp on the Hornets this season. They are eighth in the league with 21 points under their belt, scoring 23 goals so far - more than the likes of Spurs and only 1 less than fourth-placed Arsenal. …
Smalling is Stalling at Manchester United

Smalling is Stalling at Manchester United

The story of Chris Smalling at Manchester United in the last few years is an interesting one, rather unlike the man himself. The England International, with a foundation in non-league football has, in many ways, lived an average English footballer's wet dream - to represent one of the biggest clubs in the continent at the highest level possible. The 28-year old, for all his shortcomings throughout that journey, has reached the destination and he deserves a lot of credit for …
