Manchester United: "Attack, Attack, Attack"

The recent refrain from the Stretford End to Louis Van Gaal's team is not flattering. Paul Scholes, the most famous luminary has also stated neither he, Ruud Van Nistelroy or Andy Cole would not have enjoyed playing in this United team. "The lack of creativity is boring to watch", he said. Van Gaal's minimum remit is obviously Champions League qualification, with anything above considered a bonus by the owners the Glazers.

What Went Wrong For Manchester United vs Arsenal

Manchester United suffered an embarrassing loss at the hands of Arsenal at the Emirates stadium on Sunday. Nothing really went the Red Devils’ way right from the beginning. The United players seemed to be hopelessly unaware of the fact that the game had actually begun; in fact they looked tired and half-asleep. Arsenal were two goals ahead after seven minutes, before Alexis Sanchez added a third 12 minutes later, and it felt like United left themselves with a virtually impossible …

Manchester United: Could They Win The League?

Comparing Martial to Aguero, Costa and Giroud

To challenge for the Premier League title you need players that can put the ball in the back of the net. This isn't a revelation by any means but the importance of a goal scorer is often undervalued. Clubs try to cut corners when bringing in these sorts of players as they know the quality ones cost the big money. If you cast your eyes to the 2013/14 season you'll remember Liverpool came so close to the title, in part …

Wayne Rooney - Record Goalscorer For England But What Next?

A familiar name opened the scoring, the man with the armband stepped up to the spot and converted a neat penalty, his fifth for his country in a total of 49 goals, which …
