Should Manchester United dare not to Zlatan?

Football is a sport that continues to throw surprises at us and it's this glorious uncertainty that is associated with the game that everyone invests their time and money for. Mourinho's Manchester United are at the epicenter of this business in England, being completely unpredictable and at times unrecognizable from week to another.

The Left-Back Comparison | Premier League's Most Influential Left Backs

The Left-Back Comparison | Premier League's Most Influential Left Backs

And Lord Carragher said unto Lord Neville at MNF, "I look at fullbacks and think, there's only two things for a fullback- you're either a failed winger or a failed centre-back. No one wants to grow up and become a Gary Neville." Wonder what Gareth Bale or Paolo Maldini have to say about that.

Valencia are the fifth most successful Spanish club of all time, leading the line are Real Madrid, followed by Barcelona, followed by Athletico Bilbao, then comes Athletico Madrid and then Valencia in terms of trophies won.

Neville backs Manchester United to give Moyes time

Neville backs Manchester United to give Moyes time

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has said that he believes that his former club will give beleaguered manager David Moyes the time he needs to turn the Champions season around. With the champions currently 16 points off league leaders Chelsea and having been knocked out of both domestic cups the pressure is firmly on the Scottish managers shoulders.
