Five Positives From Jose Mourinho's time at United so far

It has been a positive start for Manchester United in 2017, pretty much picking up from where they left off in an impressive December, after winning their 6th Premier League game in a row at the London Stadium - coming through the festive period with maximum points and a bundle of confidence and could now turn the focus on to the cup competitions at least for the next ten days before they lock horns with arch rivals Liverpool at Old …
Mata: The Special Juan in United's season thus far

Mata: The Special Juan in United's season thus far

Jose Mourinho, for whatever reason, didn't rate Juan Mata as an important part of his (then) future plans at Chelsea and he was eventually sold to Manchester United. The dramatic irony lies in the fact that Mourinho too would not be part of the future plans of Chelsea, while Mata would go on to regularly excel in a team struggling to truly recover from the retirement of Alex Ferguson, and eventually be one of the few shining lights in Jose's current chapter at Old …

Manchester United under Mourinho: The Story So Far

Eleven games in, and with the arrival of the final international break before March, it's time we reflected on the season so far for Manchester United under Jose Mourinho. It has been a very hot and cold 2016/17 for United, to put it mildly.

Things are falling into place for Mourinho, but not for United fans

Things are falling into place for Mourinho, but not for United fans

The look of contentment that crossed Jose Mourinho face after the game at Anfield concluded, was nullified by a sense of achievement- that he had got what he came for. His comments after the game suggested both, apart from how the new Manchester United manager had turned the tables around when people were counting the Red Devils out before a ball was kicked. The game was a tactical one, as both sides afforded too much respect to each other. Jurgen …
Can Drinkwater really improve Manchester United's midfield?

Can Drinkwater really improve Manchester United's midfield?

Death, taxes and Manchester being linked with ex-players in the middle of a season. These are some of 'the inevitables' in human life. This time, it's Leicester City's title-winning midfielder Danny Drinkwater that's tipped to be Mourinho's January signing in order to beef up his already fairly well stocked midfield. While there's no doubts about how good this former Manchester United academy graduate has been for the last 18 months and how influential he was, in the Foxes' unthinkable league win, …

Leicester City request restart to EPL Season

Leicester City have requested that the current EPL season be restarted. Claudio Ranieri cited external factors as the main reason for a vastly indifferent start to this season. Ranieri : “Jamie Vardy’s chewing tobacco is stuck in a port somewhere in Spain, and our good luck Pizza cutter has been missing since THAT party last season.” He went on further saying that his players initially thought that N'golo Kanté had taken it with him to Chelsea but they aren’t winning either …
Ander Herrera - Should he be a regular starter for Manchester United?

Ander Herrera - Should he be a regular starter for Manchester United?

Manchester United were excellent in their convincing win over the champions Leicester City and Jose Mourinho was vindicated in his decision to drop Wayne Rooney from the starting eleven. The side were less predictable and the build-up play was a lot quicker than it has been in recent matches. Ander Herrera came back into the starting eleven and was one of the best performers on Saturday. He was asked to sit deep, providing a shield for the defence. This deeper …
