Is Jadon Sancho starting to settle at Manchester United?

Is Jadon Sancho starting to settle at Manchester United?

Jadon Sancho has had a tough adjustment period, following his return to England. It was expected that he would be the marquee signing to take Manchester United to a new level, but in hindsight, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has caused problems for him. The initial plan would have been for the England international to be the first choice right-winger. However, he has started to thrive on the left wing. One of the important aspects of Sancho's game has been his …
How Euro 2020 is proving that Luke Shaw is one of Europe's best left-backs

How Euro 2020 is proving that Luke Shaw is one of Europe's best left-backs

It has been an excellent 12 months for Luke Shaw, as he is rebuilding his reputation following a couple of difficult seasons at Manchester United. During the two knockout matches so far, he provided natural width down the left-flank and been a much greater creative force than he was during the group stage. That was particularly evident against Ukraine, as he spent the majority of the match in the opposition half. Gareth Southgate seems to favour an asymmetrical system, with …
Shaw's Resurgence is a Credit to Mourinho's Management

Shaw's Resurgence is a Credit to Mourinho's Management

Despite the rather impressive win at Turf Moor last week, Man United are still in a state of flux at various levels. With the fans showing the club and its board, whose side they are willing to rally behind, on the ground - be it by flying a plane carrying a banner with the very phrase coined by the manager, aimed at its highest-ranked Executive - or by singing the name so vociferously that makes you wonder whether there was …
Brighton v Manchester United Preview: Team News, Stats & Key Men

Brighton v Manchester United Preview: Team News, Stats & Key Men

On Sunday, Manchester United will play their first game away from home in 2018/19, and it's a trip to the seaside all the way to the South of England. Brighton and Hove Albion did incredibly well under Chris Hughton to manage survival last season but given the rising quality of the league including the newly promoted sides, it does look like the Seagulls, on paper, are once again set to be involved in a relegation scrap by April. If anything, …
United's Center-Half Options in the Transfer Market: Toby Alderweireld

United's Center-Half Options in the Transfer Market: Toby Alderweireld

Even though it was only pre-season, United's 4-1 defeat against Liverpool in Ann Arbor, Michigan - in front of a 95,000 strong crowd - really stung the manager and properly unravelled Mourinho's frustration and general negativity in a rather revealing press conference. The Portuguese manager is clearly unhappy with the way the preparations have gone on in the United States - the number of players he is missing either through injury or an extended post-World Cup holiday - unfinished businesses in …
Manchester United Transfer Index: Luke Shaw

Manchester United Transfer Index: Luke Shaw

As part of my weekly Manchester United transfer series, I decided to look at the career of Luke Shaw at Manchester United, the present and whether or not there is a future for the young Englishman at Old Trafford beyond the Summer of 2018. It is easy to forget some of the more simpler issues - amidst the whole argument surrounding United's Premier League season with it dividing opinion among the fans, progress versus the lack of entertainment, possibility of …
Fosu Mensah is made for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United

Fosu Mensah is made for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United

On one hand, United are about to let go of - according to credible news outlets - full-back Luke Shaw in the Summer, who was not long ago, the most expensive teenage British transfer in the Premier League. 22-year old Luke Shaw, despite his obvious talent on and off the ball - has not been able to nail down the left-back position in the first team squad that is currently occupied by a 32-year old Ashley Young who is enjoying …
Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

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. And rather quietly so. It has been a weird campaign for the Red Devils, I called this spooky in November and …
