Sanchez to Manchester United: What Would He Bring?

'You can never enough world class players at a football club' - goes the saying. It is easy to see why a whole host of teams would want to have a talent like Alexis Sanchez in their ranks.

Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

The story of Jesse Lingard, a Warrington-born boyhood Manchester United fan going from being the perennial scapegoat that symbolised United's seeming mediocrity to the match-winning hero that the supporters did not quite deserve - is a remarkable one. What the now 24-year old has experienced in the last few weeks is an occupational evolution - paraphrasing Mourinho's words - and for humans that may not have had a Pokemon experience in their lives, that may sound a bit weird so …

Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

One of the criticisms in a long list that Jose Mourinho has faced throughout his career is his lack of trust in young players. Although in 2017/18 with his continued faith in Marcus Rashford, shrewd management of Anthony Martial and outstanding use of Jesse Lingard (young, in terms of top-flight experience) - the Portuguese is proving them all wrong.

Why Jesse Lingard is crucial for Manchester United over the Christmas period

Why Jesse Lingard is crucial for Manchester United over the Christmas period

Manchester United have a lot of attacking talent in their squad, but the player to make the headlines in recent weeks hasn’t been one of the usual names. Jesse Lingard has emerged as a good supporting act in recent seasons. He produces important goals and provides healthy competition for the attacking places in the first-team. Few have seen him as a potential starter for United, but he has scored three goals and contributed one assist in his last two matches. …

3 Thoughts as Manchester United Set the Pace in the Premier League

As the dust settled and final whistle blown, United emerged victorious in another Premier League game, a vital 2-0 win at Old Trafford against the 2015/16 Champions Leicester City.
