Manchester United's draw at Stoke is not a sign of things to come

Manchester United's draw at Stoke is not a sign of things to come

Manchester United remain at the top of the league table by the end of matchday four, but only just, thanks to Mark Hughes' Stoke City who, almost predictably, halted United's 100% record accrued over the first three games. Here is my take on how the Red Devils fared at the Britannia, where they have been sub-par in recent years - since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson to be precise, but why their most recent draw could have been a …
It's time for Luke Shaw to justify Mourinho's trust in him

It's time for Luke Shaw to justify Mourinho's trust in him

Manchester United are off to a flyer this season - with two 4-0 wins on the spin in the opening two games. The squad has got the strength in depth - in most areas of the pitch and United are primed to push hard for their first league title in five years in Mourinho's historically successful second season at a new club. Yet, there always is room for improvement and what Manchester United are most certainly no exception to the …

Why Luke Shaw Should Not Be Left-Back at Manchester United

It's an interesting period in the season, especially if you are associated with Manchester United in any way, shape or form.

Why Mourinho Can Redeem Himself with Anthony Martial

Why Mourinho Can Redeem Himself with Anthony Martial

It was September the 12th. Manchester United versus Liverpool. A 20-year old Frenchman barely off the plane from Monaco made his debut at Old Trafford as a substitute. What a waste of money, chuckled the press and fairly so for a largely unknown youngster costing close to €50m, it was inevitable. The game ended 3-1 and Martial scored the third goal from wide left, turning Skrtel twice in the process to slot the ball home with the ruthlessness of a …

Manchester DisUnited? Mourinho's Moods Baffle Fans

Supreme Confidence. Winner. Darling of the Media. No, we’re not talking about Jurgen Klopp, but Jose Mourinho of the past. Jose was a real winner. He exuded the swagger of a man who truly enjoyed what he did, believed in what he did… one who never doubted himself, who would nonchalantly throw his Champions League winners' medals into the crowd minutes after receiving it, then disappeared into the darkness of the tunnel, many times off to a new challenge. Nowadays, …
