3 Thoughts as Manchester United Set the Pace in the Premier League

As the dust settled and final whistle blown, United emerged victorious in another Premier League game, a vital 2-0 win at Old Trafford against the 2015/16 Champions Leicester City. On the whole, United deservedly took home all three points as Mourinho's side improved their points tally to nine, out of nine available - and will go into the international break with confidence as high as it can be. Here are my three thoughts as Mourinho's inspiring substitutions made all the …
Rampant Rom Runs Riot as Confident United put Four Past Joe Hart

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 …
Mourinho, Martial and an unbeaten United in pre-season

Mourinho, Martial and an unbeaten United in pre-season

Two of the biggest and most popular football clubs in the world - Real Madrid and Manchester United, engaged in a friendly bout in the States as a dress rehearsal for the European Super Cup encounter which is scheduled to take place in two weeks for the first piece of silverware of the season. The game ended 1-1 and the Reds somehow stumbled on to a win - through a frankly, comical penalty shootout - where seven out of ten …
3 Potential Candidates for the Armband at Manchester United

3 Potential Candidates for the Armband at Manchester United

Manchester United, as a club, has by nature rallied around one player who usually tends to be the guy with the armband. At Old Trafford, there has always been a definitive representation on the pitch - in the mold of the manager and in some cases, even the supporters - who could identify with a particular individual, more than any other. Oftentimes, the teams are shaped in the image of these said players - The teams in the 80's - that are …

Herrera and Valencia Scoop Player of the Year Awards at Manchester United

It was the awards night at Manchester United and despite it largely being a sober and borderline tense affair with the club preparing for a season defining European final next week, the occasion hosted by Mark Chapman and Rachel Riley saw some of the fan favourites pick up deserving individual honours. Angel Gomes became the youngest ever player to win the Jimmy Murphy award for being the best at the U18s category while Axel Tuanzebe who is a more familiar …
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 …
Is Ander Herrera the Unsung Hero at Manchester United?

Is Ander Herrera the Unsung Hero at Manchester United?

With the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba in the summer, all eyes were on them to lead Manchester United back to the summit. Although they are living up to their reputation, a certain Spanish midfielder has quietly gone about his job in midfield. United were on a free fall after having lost three consecutive games against Manchester City, Watford and Feyenoord and Jose Mourinho was still trying to figure out his best eleven. Having started from the bench …

Manchester United v Southampton | League Cup Final Preview

Come Sunday, Manchester United and Southampton will lock horns to see who gets their hands on the first major trophy on offer in this campaign. United will go to Wembley for the third time in nine months and having won on both occasions, it is not hard to imagine why they would start the game as slight favorites. They are in fine fettle at the moment, with five consecutive wins on the bounce - keeping four clean sheets in the …
