Why Mourinho Should Seek a Fabregas Reunion

Why Mourinho Should Seek a Fabregas Reunion

On Sunday, Jose Mourinho kept himself some good company by becoming the third manager to win the EFL cup four times, after the great Brian Clough and Sir Alex Ferguson. Incidentally, it was also United's 42nd major accolade in English football, officially making them the most successful club in the land. The Portuguese has instilled a winning culture at United and he deserves a lot of credit for that, given the two failed regimes before him still fresh in memory. With only …

EFL Cup success for United would send out a warning to league rivals

Manchester United put down a statement on Tuesday evening when they swept past Hull with ease to record a 2-0 lead in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final.

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 …

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 …

Why Juan Mata Has to Start at Anfield

It's that time of the year again. When Manchester United travel to Anfield, there is never a dull moment (at least up until the game starts). It could well be the biggest clash in the Premier League and although the first instalment has come too soon to decide anything in terms of how the rest of the season could go with absolute certainty, both managers Klopp and Mourinho have the opportunity to lay down the red coloured marker, as they say, …

How Manchester United Could Line Up Under Mourinho

How Manchester United Could Line Up Under Mourinho

With Jose Mourinho keen on giving Manchester United the very best – case in point: Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan – it becomes arguable as to where Rooney will find himself in the new squad. There is no need to illustrate further on how Ibrahimovic is the ideal number 9 as he has already proven it multiple times. Interestingly, Anthony Martial’s suitability was also displayed last season and with the emergence of Marcus Rashford, Rooney’s importance in the team looks …

Paul Pogba - An Expensive Investment or an Expensive Mistake?

It didn’t take Jose Mourinho long enough to assemble a star squad at Manchester United during the transfer season this time around, and it looks like he’s in no mood to stop! Unlike the last couple of seasons, Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have already signed up for the Red Devils, and now Paul Pogba would just be the cherry on top.
