Manchester United v Fenerbahçe Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

European football is back and Manchester United will host Dick Advocaat's Fenerbahçe on Thursday in what is a pivotal game in Group A that certainly has the potential to determine how the final standings could look come December. It's by far the most anticipated game on match-day three as the fixture sees the return of former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie and also evokes memories of the debut of a certain young Englishman in the name of Wayne Rooney who scored a …
Should Aaron Ramsey Leave Arsenal?

Should Aaron Ramsey Leave Arsenal?

Arsenal have been struggling with the same issues time and again, and this season appears to be no different. Wenger failed to do anything impactful in the transfer window, and their game on field is weak and seems unmotivated. Fans and critics are both tired of the same thing they have been subjected to for almost a decade now. Now, another reason for criticism is the way Aaron Ramsey’s fitness was handled. Ramsey has been prey to injuries off late, …

Issues That Wenger Must Immediately Address at Arsenal

This season marks Wenger’s 21st year as manager at Arsenal, and it’ll be one of the most challenging seasons as he’ll have to face-off against the likes of Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte, and of course, Jose Mourinho. With other clubs making no effort to downplay their spending, Wenger has managed to make only one major signing.

Manchester United's Top 6 Summer Signings

Manchester United's Top 6 Summer Signings

Manchester United were the Premier League’s second biggest spenders behind local rivals Manchester City this summer. In total, £97.75m was spent on getting hold of players such as Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and the deadline day capture of Anthony Martial.

Wayne Rooney Struggling to Fit In?

Wayne Rooney Struggling to Fit In?

Wayne Rooney has filled plenty of column inches over the past few months after replacing Sir Bobby Charlton as England’s all-time highest goalscorer. The Manchester United is yet to touch 30, and to achieve such a record, is a great deal. To outscore the likes of Gary Lineker, Jimmy Greaves, Michael Owen and Alan Shearer is pretty good going. However, while he is breaking record after record for England, he has struggled to leave his mark on United so far …
RVP back to MVP for Manchester United?

RVP back to MVP for Manchester United?

Most forwards in the Premier League would be more than content with a return of 8 goals in 21 (2014) appearances, but Robin Van Persie isn't just an everyday hit man. The flying Dutchman netted his first goal in 4 at the weekend, a terrific left footed strike into the top corner reminiscent of Giroud's recent screamer against the Red Devils, digging himself out of a recent rut of form Van Persie also very nearly replicated his wonder header in …
Manchester United - Blinded by Injuries?

Manchester United - Blinded by Injuries?

This one places Manchester United third on the rather dubious EPL Injury table just below Everton and Newcastle. With 10 injuries at the moment, Louis Van Gaal's side has been ravaged by a series of short-term and long-term injuries alike throughout the season, hampering any possibility of getting a consistent run-out with his favored group of players. This International week has particularly given him more to worry about, with key first team players in David De Gea (Finger), Michael Carrick …
Robin Van Persie: No Longer United's MVP

Robin Van Persie: No Longer United's MVP

Is it just me who thinks Robin Van Persie looks like he has aged about 10 years over the summer? It is a World Cup year so it’s no surprise when a player who reached the latter stages looks a bit jaded come start of the season. But, to me Van Persie looks like he is struggling with more than a bit of fatigue with age. With Man United’s season last year being one to forget, it may have led …
