Remembering When Teams Didn't Have Squad Numbers

Remembering When Teams Didn't Have Squad Numbers

I grew up in the 1980's where Football coverage was completely different to how it is now. For those of you old enough to remember the times before Sky and the Premier League, you will recall there was no Soccer Sunday, no expert analysis, no all seater stadiums and very few players from abroad (ignoring Jesper Olsen & Joel Sivebaek, anyway!). Yes Football in the 80's was on the up, but it was nothing like the financial monster it has …
Time to Bid Adieu to Van Gaal?

Time to Bid Adieu to Van Gaal?

Louis van Gaal was booed by the Manchester United crowd as he tried to thank Old Trafford for its support this season. The Dutchman addressed the crowd following the end of United's last game of the season against Bournemouth. Manchester United's 3-1 victory sealed European football next season with a fifth placed finish in the league, but their inferior goal difference meant they missed out on Champions League qualification to rivals Manchester City. The result was only good enough to …

Manchester United v Leicester City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

On May 1st, Leicester City could clinch the Premier League title at Old Trafford.  The Foxes are three points away from their first top flight title ever.  They may be missing Jamie Vardy, but that didn't stop them from dismantling Swansea 4-0 last weekend. That combined with Tottenham's 1-1 draw to West Brom has put Leicester on the cusp of history. Manchester United will attempt to play the role of spoiler, a role they have not played too often in the …
Renato Sanches to United - What is this all about?

Renato Sanches to United - What is this all about?

It's that time of the year when some teams start preparing for the pre-season and others, even further. Manchester United, have always, done their deals with utmost secrecy in the past, at least up until, Sir Alex Ferguson's leadership. Things are rather different now from top to bottom at Old Trafford and the fact that every move of theirs - from scouting a 15-year old to registering an interest in a player to enquiring a buyout clause - is being …
Anthony Martial: Proving he is Far From a Waste of Money

Anthony Martial: Proving he is Far From a Waste of Money

Anthony Martial had certainly read the script before stepping onto the pitch and scoring the winning goal in stoppage time as Manchester United reached their 19th FA Cup final and their first since the 2006-07 campaign, a final they would go on to lose against Didier Drogba's Chelsea. For all their success in recent years, post the Glazer's takeover, if there was one trophy that constantly eluded them, it's the FA Cup and this year they have probably got the …

Everton vs Manchester United FA Cup Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Louis van Gaal has been consistent in getting the big wins this season. A recent example would be when Manchester United kept their cup hopes alive by edging out West Ham United in a thrilling tie at Upton Park. It was easily one of United's best team performances of the campaign, coming at just the right time for Van Gaal. However, if reports are to be believed, he could be well out on his way out of the club in …

Manchester United vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Second-placed Spurs will take on fifth-placed Manchester United, as Spurs will try to stay in touch with Leicester at the top of the table, while Manchester United still chase fourth place as Louis van Gaal's long-term future is under scrutiny. Spurs were disappointed to draw 1-1 at Anfield against Liverpool last Saturday, and Leicester's win helped them extend their lead as they look to win their first Premier League title. Spurs have the most clean sheets, and Manchester United have …

Manchester United vs Sunderland Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Sunderland take on Manchester United this weekend at the Stadium of Light in what is an important game for both the teams involved. That being said, the two teams are at opposite ends of the table and on paper it seems like it should be very one sided. However, nothing can be determined in the EPL, and for all we know, Sunderland could pull a victory over the Red Devils. While Sunderland is generally having a down season, the Black …
