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 …

Juan Mata: Play well but it won’t matter

Juan Mata: Play well but it won’t matter

Manchester United’s midfield maestro, Juan Mata, could be in for a rough season when he is reunited with former boss Jose Mourinho. The pair weren’t the best of friends at Chelsea and the Spanish midfielder was often left out of favour by the Portuguese manager. A £37m offer from Manchester United was far too good for Jose to refuse and Mata was axed from the Chelsea squad in favour of Oscar, who made the No.10 role his own under Jose …
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. …
The Premier League influence on Spain

The Premier League influence on Spain

Ever since Rafa Benitez took over as Liverpool manager in 2004 and brought the likes of Xabi Alonso and Luis Garcia with him, there has been a steady stream of Spanish players plying their trade in the Premier League. Whilst Barcelona and Real Madrid caught most attention as Spain enjoyed their golden period that saw them win the 2008 and 2012 Euros, along with the 2010 World Cup, the Premier League also contributed towards those squads. Whilst many of the …
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 …
Crucial Juan-Nil Win For Manchester United At Carrow Road

Crucial Juan-Nil Win For Manchester United At Carrow Road

Manchester United laboured to a rare away win, this time at relegation-threatened Norwich City thanks to a good finish from Juan Mata. The win took Louis Van Gaal's side closer to their rivals Manchester City, now only one behind with the latter set to play third placed Arsenal this weekend. It was another dire, uninspiring performance from the Red Devils where the stale nature of the way United played overshadowed what was, in context of the league, a hugely vital …
Manchester United Stroll to Victory

Manchester United Stroll to Victory

Robbie Savage on his BBC 606 Talkshow called Manchester City a "shambles". To have spent north of £500m in 4 years and be fielding Martin Demichelis and Jesus Navas he has a point. Even Raheem Sterling has been embarrassing of late, and that £49m piece of business looks very shrewd by Liverpool. The ghost of Pep Guardiola is weighing very heavily on this City squad and some cynics amongst the City fans are suggesting Pellegrini is purposely or spitefully ensuring …
