How Rashford's season emphasises the youth development problems England has

The appointment of Jose Mourinho raised concerns about the development of Marcus Rashford last summer. Despite the Manchester United manager's claims about bringing his ability to filter through young players at previous clubs, he has been known to rely on experienced players throughout his coaching career. This has been evidenced once again at Manchester United as he immediately opted to bring in the 35-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer. Although the Swede is a world class striker and has …

Lingard Launches United Closer to the Top Four in the Premier League

Manchester United managed to shake off fatigue concerns to overcome a stubborn Middlesbrough in Riverside on Sunday, which saw them ascend the Premier League table for the first time since game-week 11. Mourinho fielded a back three again - for the third consecutive game this season, not to mention against a team that has massively struggled to score goals, his decision was slightly perplexing. The visitors looked a hastily assembled side at least on paper, clearly a consequence of injuries …

Fellaini, Romero and the Romance of the Europa League

Manchester United are through to the last eight of another European competition. The Red Devils, despite all the 'obstacles' came away with a 1-0 victory which will be remembered for a long time for reasons plenty, with the result itself not being one of them. United went into the game with a bit of suspicion in their minds planted by a rather dangerously slender advantage via the away goal they had scored in Russia. Mourinho started the game with a …

It is Time For Marcus Rashford To Emulate and Evolve Under Mourinho

With the news of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's three-match domestic ban confirmed at the time of writing, and Manchester United, as a consequence, facing the prospect of playing competitive football matches without their talisman and top scorer, there is some suspicion among Reds as to whether Jose Mourinho's side can carry their reasonably strong run of form since early November, on to the coming weeks. The 35-year old, will as a result of the ban, not only miss United's FA Cup outing …
Man United Travel Back in Time to Drop a Further Two Points against Bournemouth

Man United Travel Back in Time to Drop a Further Two Points against Bournemouth

If anything, it was déjà vu for Manchester United at Old Trafford. A score draw when it seemed they could finally permanently climb the league table where they've stayed sixth for the last 138 days and as a result, will continue to do at least until they play their next Premier League game in two weeks' time. It was arguably the weirdest game Manchester United have played under Mourinho so far. Never short of controversies, the game saw a sending off, player …
