A Year of Ibrahimovic - In Images and Words

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. Twelve months, twenty-eight goals and …

Top Five Manchester United Moments in 2016/17 (Part 1)

Every club has its moments - good and bad, in a football season. Manchester United are not an exception to the rule and while the Premier League campaign was largely uninteresting and uninspiring, there have been some interesting narratives and flash points that have featured across the 62-game slug-fest as Mourinho saw off his first campaign with two trophies (he could argue 3) and Champions League qualification. I would like to share my top five in two parts - this …

Mourinho's United signings: The good, the bad and the ugly

It's no secret that Manchester United spent big in the summer in an attempt to recapture the success which had made them one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

Familiar Scoreline sees Man United through to an Unfamiliar Fixture

Familiar Scoreline sees Man United through to an Unfamiliar Fixture

Manchester United drew 1-1 at Old Trafford for the 12th time in 2016/17 - although only on this occasion, the scoreline was actually enough for the Red Devils to reach the seventh European final in their history. In isolation, it was another poor display from Mourinho's men at home where their inability to win football matches has been well documented this campaign. Utterly dominated by the 12th placed side in La Liga both in terms of possession and clear-cut chances …

For the first time in forty years, Manchester United and Arsenal will play in the second half of the season outside of top four. Not only does it show how far the two giants of English football have fallen, but also represents a genuine risk of what could easily be the norm for the next few seasons. Arsenal were humiliated at White Hart Lane on Sunday after a convincing defeat in the last ever North London Derby in the hallowed …
