Martial's performance vindicated Manchester United's decision to sell Lukaku

Martial's performance vindicated Manchester United's decision to sell Lukaku

Manchester United started the season with a very positive result as they thrashed top-six rivals, Chelsea, scoring four goals in the process. The scoreline was arguably harsh on the visitors, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side capitalised on the tactical flaws displayed by Frank Lampard in his first game in charge of the Blues. There are similarities that can be drawn between the two clubs, due to adored former players being in the dugout. However, the quality in the forward line …
Have Manchester United Done Enough to Break the Top Four?

Have Manchester United Done Enough to Break the Top Four?

Despite coming second to Manchester City a couple of seasons back, Man United took a huge tumble last season following a distinctly lacking summer of transfers under executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. But with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought in and a more exciting brand of football in play, there’s a renewed hope at Old Trafford that United can muscle their way back amongst the new elite teams of the Premier League. Throughout last season and the season before, the squad had glaring …
Manchester United Shirk The Limelight To Good Effect

Manchester United Shirk The Limelight To Good Effect

It has been a strange, quiet pre-season for one of the biggest clubs in the world. When the curtains came down on Manchester United’s shambolic 2018-19 campaign with defeat at home to already-relegated Cardiff City, a summer of upheaval seemingly lay in wait. There was an entire squad of under-performing prima donnas to jettison away and the summer back pages were expected to be littered with transfers in and out of Old Trafford.  It has been anything but and Ole …
Paulo Dybala would cause tactical headache for Manchester United

Paulo Dybala would cause tactical headache for Manchester United

BBC Sport report that Manchester United have entered into talks over Juventus striker Paulo Dybala. The Italian giants are looking to take Romelu Lukaku to Serie A, which has created the possibility of a swap deal. It is unlikely that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had the 25-year-old on his list of targets at the start of the summer, but an opportunity to sign a world class player can't be turned down. Although the deal is at an early stage, supporters are …
Manchester United Should Sell Romelu Lukaku This Summer

Manchester United Should Sell Romelu Lukaku This Summer

Romelu Lukaku is a priority target for Inter Milan this summer, with Antonio Conte demanding that the hierarchy sign the Belgian international. The Telegraph reported earlier this month that Manchester United had turned down a £54 million bid for the striker. It is unlikely that the Serie A club will be deterred and this saga is likely to drag on until the end of the transfer window. The focus has been on incomings for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but he has …
Harry Maguire to Manchester United makes sense if you ignore the fee

Harry Maguire to Manchester United makes sense if you ignore the fee

Manchester United look set to add a young British core to their squad this summer. BBC Sport report that the club have made a £70 million bid for Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire. This would add to the signings of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been given a license to rebuild as he sees fit and it is perhaps surprising to see a preference for homegrown talent. Although the offer is short of the Foxes' asking …
Sanchez’s Chile Form A Red Herring For United?

Sanchez’s Chile Form A Red Herring For United?

Two of the fiercest competitors in football took to the field last week at the legendary Maracanã in Brazil. Luis Suarez did what he normally does; putting in a shift while also finding it in himself to instinctively appeal for handball when the opposition keeper handled the ball inside the box (as you do) and also trying to get Gonzalo Jara sent off for tripping a pitch invader. The Uruguayan did not get his way with the referee but still …
Could Wan be the Man at United?

Could Wan be the Man at United?

It was the worst kept secret in the world - until Manchester United finally announced the signing of 21-year old fullback Aaron Wan-Bissaka for a fee of £45-million plus £5-million in add-ons from Premier League side Crystal Palace. The club, after a slow start in the transfer window, have finally got the wheels moving, to sign a young Welsh winger from Swansea City for about £15-million, in what is seen as a move made by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, in his …
