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

On Sunday, Jose Mourinho takes his Manchester United team to face their ex-manager David Moyes’ Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Both the teams are perhaps fighting to save their pre-season goals. Sunderland would have hoped to stay up in the league despite their quality issues, while Manchester United would have aimed at least for a top-four finish at the start of the season. It is increasingly likely that both the teams will miss out on these pre-season aims and …
How Manchester United Could Line Up Under Mourinho

How Manchester United Could Line Up Under Mourinho

With Jose Mourinho keen on giving Manchester United the very best – case in point: Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan – it becomes arguable as to where Rooney will find himself in the new squad. There is no need to illustrate further on how Ibrahimovic is the ideal number 9 as he has already proven it multiple times. Interestingly, Anthony Martial’s suitability was also displayed last season and with the emergence of Marcus Rashford, Rooney’s importance in the team looks …
Jose Mourinho to Sell Players, But Who?

Jose Mourinho to Sell Players, But Who?

Earlier this week a report surfaced that new Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, would be looking at clearing the deadwood and undertaking a much needed overhaul of the United squad. We take a quick look at the players whose futures could be in doubt and who could be on their way out of Old Trafford. Sam Johnstone Playing time will be limited for the young keeper, and the emergence of Joel Pereira means we can afford to let him go. …
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 …
Januzaj's Premature Return

Januzaj's Premature Return

Adnan Januzaj’s return to Manchester United has proved to be beneficial so far. The reason behind his early return from the loan was him being accused of showing a bad attitude during his loan spell at Borussia Dortmund from Manchester United. The Belgian winger joined Dortmund at the start of the season after being warned that he was unlikely to be a first team regular under Louis van Gaal. But his spell in the Bundesliga was a flop: he failed …

Adnan Januzaj: Will United's Youngster be Eclipsed by Their New Stars?

Adnan Januzaj: Will United's Youngster be Eclipsed by Their New Stars?

Ask any United fan to discuss the positives from last year's horrendous title defence and, after a brief pause during which they may start to cry, they'll almost certainly mention Adnan Januzaj. In his twenty-seven appearances last year, Januzaj contributed four goals and three assists. Not bad for a player plucked from the youth team. He also created 31 chances for a misfiring United attack. Despite his mazy dribbling skills, Januzaj also demomstrated his vision by successfully completing nearly five-hundred …
Manchester United in 2013/14 - A Season Review

Manchester United in 2013/14 - A Season Review

Manchester United endured their worst season in the last 25 years, as they finished outside top four for the first time in over two decades in their first season post the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. The season also saw David Moyes get the sack just 10 months into his 6-year contract and rightly so. There is a long list of things we could look back and point our finger at, as to what went wrong at this football club …
