Manchester United - What 15/16 season could have in store

Manchester United - What 15/16 season could have in store

Manchester United have splurged on good quality players this transfer window, and there is no denying the fact that the expectations of the fans would be sky-high. Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger will be looking to strengthen the midfield and Rooney would be looking to continue his good spell. On paper, this seems to be a perfect setting for United to make a run for the trophy. Let's take a look at the facts though, and see if Manchester United can really …
Why Manchester United are wrong to sell Angel Di Maria

Why Manchester United are wrong to sell Angel Di Maria

Less than a year ago, Manchester United broke their transfer record to sign Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria for a fee of £60m. Now, it looks like the Argentine is on his way out of Old Trafford. The Manchester club are trying to squeeze some more money out of PSG, but it does seem like Di Maria is ready to leave England. For as talented a player as he is, it was a really poor first season for Di Maria. …
Stat Chat - Would Pedro Really Improve Manchester United?

Stat Chat - Would Pedro Really Improve Manchester United?

In a long interview with the club's in-house channel MUTV, Van Gaal expressed his desire to strengthen 'at least two positions' before his side kicks off the new campaign on the 8th of August at home against Tottenham Hotspur. Although that suggests Van Gaal is looking to sort his priority list that reads signing an experienced centre-half, a forward (to replace Falcao and Van Persie) and a goalkeeper (to replace Victor Valdes) at the moment, rumours have it that the …
Manchester United's Projected Formations for 2015-2016

Manchester United's Projected Formations for 2015-2016

Louis van Gaal tinkered with formations quite frequently last year, confusing even the most loyal Manchester United supporters. His determination to use different setups and play stars out of position (see: Rooney, Wayne) rubbed many up the wrong way, but some of it stemmed from lacking the right personnel. With a second transfer window under his belt, Van Gaal seems to have acquired the right players to fit his possession-dominant, high line system. How will that translate tactically? Here are the …

Roberto Firmino to Manchester United - Necessity or Luxury?

Roberto Firmino to Manchester United - Necessity or Luxury?

If twitter reports are anything to be trusted, then Manchester United have already wrapped up their second signing of the summer - Hoffeinheim's attacking midfielder Roberto Firmino for circa 18m€ (some sources quote €30 million). Although there has been no noise in particular from the British Press on what has been going on behind the curtains at Old Trafford, it looks like the deal could be on and the player could have actually undergone his medical already whilst on international duty, …
Have Liverpool pushed Sterling into Manchester United's Arms?

Have Liverpool pushed Sterling into Manchester United's Arms?

Just imagine it. Raheem Sterling, a man painted as the future of Liverpool football club jumps ship to fierce rivals Manchester United. Surely not? The summer transfer juggernaut is under way and we can look forward to months of solid transfer gossip interspersed amidst a sea of nonsense rumours. Whilst there are reports that Manchester City have had a bid rejected you'd think the interest of Manchester United in Raheem Sterling is one of the most outlandish! It is not outlandish …
Young vs Di Maria: Are we in a Parallel Universe?

Young vs Di Maria: Are we in a Parallel Universe?

On 24th April, 2014, two players, at a distance of a little more than a thousand miles apart, would’ve both had a hard time sleeping. One was an Argentine in Lisbon, capping off a remarkable season with another virtuoso, man-of-the-match winning performance in the UEFA Champions League final. Finally returning to the hotel room in the wee morning hours with adrenalin still pumping in his veins, it is unlikely Angel Di Maria caught any sleep that night. The other was an …
