Benfica v Manchester United | Champions League Preview

In midweek, Manchester United will play their second game on the road as they make the short trip to Lisbon to take on the biggest club side in Portuguese football. United and Benfica have storied histories in this competition with arguably United's 4-1 win against a Eusebio-led Benfica in 1968 - the most memorable, making Manchester United the first English club to win the European Cup. But today, Benfica are on a sticky wicket - both in Portugal and outside …
Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Always highly anticipated, often living up to the hype. Last season, leading into this fixture, Liverpool were absolutely flying. The Red Devils not so much, so Jose Mourinho parked the bus (no surprise there, actually). This season though, its a whole different story. The Media, pundits, analysts, statisticians, commentators( and the referees),  all believe that this is the year that Mourinho will bring United back to the pinnacle of English Football. It would be hard to disagree on current form …
3 Thoughts as Manchester United Set the Pace in the Premier League

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. On the whole, United deservedly took home all three points as Mourinho's side improved their points tally to nine, out of nine available - and will go into the international break with confidence as high as it can be. Here are my three thoughts as Mourinho's inspiring substitutions made all the …
Lukaku and Rashford 'could' be United's new Yorke and Cole

Lukaku and Rashford 'could' be United's new Yorke and Cole

Ambitious title, isn't it?  When Lukaku and Rashford started together for the first time at Manchester United, in a fairly historic event - the first Manchester derby held outside of UK and the first time the two sides faced each other after the horrific terrorist/suicide bomber attack in May, there was as much excitement among the United fans as there was respect from both sides, on the pitch and the terraces in Houston, who made it nothing less than a …
Let Us Talk About Nemanja Matic and Manchester United

Let Us Talk About Nemanja Matic and Manchester United

Manchester United are back in the thick of stories that continue to divide opinion among fans - particularly after yesterday's breaking news that Mourinho is very close to re-signing Nemanja Matic from his former club Chelsea for a fee in the region of £40-million. The reaction it has generated on social media has not been all positive. In fact, one could observe a large stream of massively underwhelmed responses that you would have thought Manchester United had gone out and signed …
An Assessment of United's Returning Loan Army

An Assessment of United's Returning Loan Army

When Manchester United's class of 92 was honored with the 'Special Merit Award' a few years ago, for their footballing achievements in the 90's, a video was made in tribute to those involved, composed of interesting interviews from coach Eric Harrison, the players themselves and Sir Alex Ferguson. The Scotsman who has overseen a steady influx of young homegrown players making an indelible impression on Manchester United's history, said something very simple yet deeply profound, which funnily enough, does not hold as …
Top Five Manchester United Moments in 2016/17 (Part – 2)

Top Five Manchester United Moments in 2016/17 (Part – 2)

2016/17 was not a vintage Manchester United season for many reasons - for one, they finished 6th in the league and secondly, they did not score a ton of goals like they often did in the past, in fact they only managed to net a paltry 54 goals in 38 games - which puts them a lowly eighth in the 'goals for' column, behind Bournemouth. Put that into context, the Red Devils have scored 23 goals fewer than a side that …
