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 …

Five Manchester United Players With Uncertain Futures

Five Manchester United Players With Uncertain Futures

After Jose Mourinho made it clear that Manchester United only want "specialist" players, the futures of multi-functional players at United have been thrown up in the air. The new Manchester United manager suggested that "one or two" multi-functional players would have a place in the squad yet United are a team with a wealth of non-specialist players meaning sales are expected, but whose most at risk of heading out the exit door?

Top Four Hopes Fade Away as United held to Another Draw at Home

Top Four Hopes Fade Away as United held to Another Draw at Home

It was a game of four quarters rather than two halves. United played the better football in the first ad final quarter while champions-elect Leicester City edging the other two. The visitors came to Old Trafford knowing a win would secure an historic title and one of world's most unbelievable sporting stories in recent memory. But Ranieri's men will have been the happier manager to return home with a point meaning only a win for Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge …
Manchester United Stroll to Victory

Manchester United Stroll to Victory

Robbie Savage on his BBC 606 Talkshow called Manchester City a "shambles". To have spent north of £500m in 4 years and be fielding Martin Demichelis and Jesus Navas he has a point. Even Raheem Sterling has been embarrassing of late, and that £49m piece of business looks very shrewd by Liverpool. The ghost of Pep Guardiola is weighing very heavily on this City squad and some cynics amongst the City fans are suggesting Pellegrini is purposely or spitefully ensuring …

Marcos Rojo & Being Content With United's Derby Performance

Marcos Rojo & Being Content With United's Derby Performance

The 170th Manchester derby will be remembered for several reasons: it was not of the demolition variety that the supporters have been used to witnessing in recent years, as Gary Neville or someone who tried to sound like Gary Neville called it 'a game of chess' on a football pitch. It was a chess game, indeed. Played in Red and Blue on a green piece of land, where the two most expensively assembled sides in England canceled each other out, …
A United Defence? A Look at the Red Devils’ Defenders

A United Defence? A Look at the Red Devils’ Defenders

The one glaring problem for Manchester United last season was their defence.  The revolving door that was last year’s back line has barely been tinkered with over the summer, and the final month of the transfer window may not bring any more changes.  If the Red Devils wish to consistently compete for Champions League football after spending last season away from it, some analysis needs to be done on the defenders currently at the club.  What can be improved upon …
