LFC vs MUFC | United Could End Jinx

LFC vs MUFC | United Could End Jinx

You'd be forgiven, if you're a Manchester United fan, for being sick of the sight of Anfield lately. Where previously we could look forward to the trip, knowing that our record there  was absolutely insane, we now find ourselves without a league win since 2007, when Carlos Tevez turned a Rooney shot into the roof of Reina's net for the only goal. Of course, whilst Liverpool may have won the last three games at Anfield, prior to that their previous home victory …
United Prove Wenger's Vision Can Work

United Prove Wenger's Vision Can Work

Arsene Wenger has prided himself on bringing the best out of young, underachieving players for as long as he's been in charge at Arsenal. The likes of  Nicholas Anelka, Cesc Fabregas and Jack Wilshere have emerged under his stewardship, whilst he also got the best out of the previously promising Dennie Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry. It's not going to win him any more trophies, though. The Arsenal era is over, Wenger's best available team completely torn to shreds …
Passing is King as United Hammer Spurs

Passing is King as United Hammer Spurs

David De Gea has been absolutely hammered during his short Manchester United career but demonstrated why he, and the rest of the Manchester United team which swept Spurs aside tonight, are a cut above the rest of the Premier League. Spurs came to Old Trafford with more than a few respected observers expecting them to trouble the champions, but goals from Danny Welbeck, Anderson and Wayne Rooney were enough to see United home after a stop-start first half. Welbeck struggled …
Berbatov | The Cases For and Against

Berbatov | The Cases For and Against

Dimitar Berbatov has been called a lot of things. "Languid" if you're a fan, "lazy" if you're not, he divides opinion amongst Manchester United fans more than anyone else. Given the sparking form of Wayne Rooney towards the end of the season, along with the emergence of Javier Hernandez and the return of Danny Welbeck to his parent club, it looked like Berbatov's chances of getting decent game time this year might be limited, even given the fact that he …
Nani vs Young | United's Big Wing Battle

Nani vs Young | United's Big Wing Battle

Manchester United have a bit of a lop-sided squad at the moment. They have an absolute embarrasment of riches both up front and out wide, whereas in the center of midfield and at full-back they're relatively threadbare considering they expect to be challenging for their 20th title this season. It was something of a surprise, then, when they paid the asking price to bring Ashley Young to Old Trafford, especially considering the excellent form of Nani until January and the …
