Welcome back Darren Fletcher | A look at his stats from 2009-11

Welcome back Darren Fletcher | A look at his stats from 2009-11

Good things come to those who wait. Darren Fletcher's return to first-team football in the English top flight could not have come at a better time, a pivotal moment in his career and could well be the turning point this season. Having diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in December 2011, Fletcher had to take an extended break from football to carry on with his recovery process. He made a short comeback in 2012, played his last game on the boxing day …
What next for Anderson? | Manchester United Stats

What next for Anderson? | Manchester United Stats

Undeniable talent. Consistently inconsistent. Injury-prone. Just some of the phrases that pop up when I think of this over-weight Brazilian. Anderson plays in the middle of the park, and was bought for a hefty fee of around £20 million in the 2007 summer transfer window. He was immediately handed the #8 shirt, previously worn by Wayne Rooney, underlining his importance and the belief the club and ex-boss Sir Alex had in him. He's never really excited the Old Trafford faithful but …
Should Fabio be Given The Nod? A Look at His Stats

Should Fabio be Given The Nod? A Look at His Stats

Fabio Da Silva, the 'technically better one' of the Brazilian twin brothers scored the fourth and final goal in a 4-0 rout against a hapless Norwich City in the league cup 4th round on the tuesday night to take Manchester United into the quarter final. Well. One could of think of the boy as to why he couldn't solidify his position in the side, when his brother Rafael - the hardworking one has gone on from strength to strength since, …
Evans - A Steady Rise to Prominence?

Evans - A Steady Rise to Prominence?

Jonny Evans and Phil Jones are starting to show the fans that they are the future of this great football club. More noticeably, the former is a Manchester United academy product - one that we can gloat about. Every  football club has a player that surpasses or finally lives up to the expectations. In Jonny Evans, Manchester United has the former. A Manchester United youth graduate who has everything that a defender requires: two good feet, good awareness, commanding and …
Poachers - Necessity to Luxury? Welbeck Vs Hernandez Stats Comparison

Poachers - Necessity to Luxury? Welbeck Vs Hernandez Stats Comparison

'Poacher' refers to a forward, essentially a player who is very comfortable at getting behind the defenders, finishing off through-balls inside the 18-yard box, scoring goals at will. But today as we know, most of the game is being played out in the middle of the park. Managers of top clubs in England and across Europe are overly concerned about dominating the game, holding the ball and thereby controlling the outcome of the fixture themselves. This change in style has …
Dave Saves | The Rise and Rise of David De Gea | 11-12 and 12-13 Stats

Dave Saves | The Rise and Rise of David De Gea | 11-12 and 12-13 Stats

When Manchester United missed out on a goalkeeper of Manuel Neuer's calibre to replace the flying Dutchman Van Der Saar only to sign this lean, cat-like-reflexive Spaniard back in 2011, not many supporters welcomed that move, so much so for a record fee of around £17.8 million (British record for a goalkeeper). Now, Manchester United's Spanish shot-stopper David De Gea is set to sign a new deal that would enable him to stay at the club until 2018 while the …
Adnan Yanu-Zey | A Star is Born for Manchester United?

Adnan Yanu-Zey | A Star is Born for Manchester United?

Boy. Oh boy. Fortune favours the brave, they say. Replace brave with Moyes. Handing an 18-year old promising kid a debut at a time when one is under immense pressure cannot be more rewarding. Adnan Januzaj, the Belgian-born lad who has the liberty to choose to play for Belgium/Albania or even England (apparently) will now have the option to choose to play for some of the biggest clubs in Europe too, after yesterday's match-winning performance against Sunderland, with rumours already …
Is David Moyes Handling The Media Well?

Is David Moyes Handling The Media Well?

The misery continues. Another defeat. Three precious points lost, I should say. This time at home, to a spirited West Bromwich side that stunned the football world, fans and neutrals alike. While Steve Clarke seemed to have clearly won the battle of wits on the pitch, his counterpart David Moyes is notably struggling both on and off it. Some of his quotes have unsettled a fair section of the supporters and we will know how they have affected the players …
