Is Everyone Missing A Trick With Marcus Rashford?

Is Everyone Missing A Trick With Marcus Rashford?

Gareth Southgate had a few interesting thoughts on Marcus Rashford after England’s 4-0 defeat of Bulgaria. The manager admitted that he had, like so many others, almost willed the player to develop as a number nine since the then-teenager burst onto the scene in 2016. However, the presence of Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane in those positions for club and country respectively meant that Rashford was shunted onto the flanks in time.  Southgate now believes that the player is most …

Martial's performance vindicated Manchester United's decision to sell Lukaku

Manchester United started the season with a very positive result as they thrashed top-six rivals, Chelsea, scoring four goals in the process. The scoreline was arguably harsh on the visitors, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side capitalised on the tactical flaws displayed by Frank Lampard in his first game in charge of the Blues.

Manchester United Should Sell Romelu Lukaku This Summer

Manchester United Should Sell Romelu Lukaku This Summer

Romelu Lukaku is a priority target for Inter Milan this summer, with Antonio Conte demanding that the hierarchy sign the Belgian international.

Vague ‘Manchester United Way’ A Sure Road To Failure

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a Manchester United legend. ‘That’ goal in the 1999 Champions League final confirmed his place in club folklore and his association with a successful Sir Alex Ferguson side got him his current job as manager. The opportunity to ingrain himself further with the fans has been presented and if he does turn the fortunes of a floundering institution around, a statue at Old Trafford could be in the works. It is a humungous task that he …

Mohamed Salah: The One Season Wonder Who Forgot to Read the Script

This week, on a BeIN Sports interaction, Jose Mourinho decided to defend Chelsea’s decision to sell Mohamed Salah back in 2015-16.

When the Skies were Grey: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Debut as Interim Manager
