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.

Is This a Golden Age for Managerial Talent in the Premier League?

A Year of Ibrahimovic - In Images and Words

Soon after the confirmation that Manchester United would not be extending the services of 35-year old center-forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, my mind raced back to early June last year, when all eyes were on France and the European Championships - and how excited I was at the thought of a certain Swede holding the famous red shirt and smiling at the cameras, exuding the aura of a king arriving at the battlefield he has yet to conquer.
