The Boiling Hot Mess that is Manchester United

The Boiling Hot Mess that is Manchester United

The drama has peaked at Manchester United - that in less than 24 hours after the defeat to Brighton, the utter shambles of the nature of that performance at the Amex Stadium was quickly forgotten because there was already a new circus in town. And the clown this time is one of football's 'super agents', a modern-day euphemism for despicable opportunists, Mino Raiola. It all started with Paul Scholes, one of the most decorated midfielders in the game and whose influence …
Scholes Backs Liverpool Victory

Scholes Backs Liverpool Victory

Former club legend Paul Scholes has backed Liverpool to get one over his old club when the two English giants face each other in tonight's Premier League clash at Anfield. Scholes often outspoken in recent years has stated that Manchester United lack 'identity' under controversial new manager Jose Mourinho. It is for this reason why he feels that United's fierce rival Liverpool have the upper hand. Liverpool currently sit three points above Manchester United in the table and have caught …
Can Drinkwater really improve Manchester United's midfield?

Can Drinkwater really improve Manchester United's midfield?

Death, taxes and Manchester being linked with ex-players in the middle of a season. These are some of 'the inevitables' in human life. This time, it's Leicester City's title-winning midfielder Danny Drinkwater that's tipped to be Mourinho's January signing in order to beef up his already fairly well stocked midfield. While there's no doubts about how good this former Manchester United academy graduate has been for the last 18 months and how influential he was, in the Foxes' unthinkable league win, …
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 …

Where Are They Now? | Manchester United 2008-2009

The 2008-2009 Premier League campaign was a magnificent one for Manchester United who took home the title with 90 points, four points above second place Liverpool. Finishing the season with 28 wins, six draws, and only four losses. Scoring 68 goals and only conceding 24 in the league. Apart from their league success, United captured the: League Cup, Community Shield, and FIFA Club World Cup. On top of UEFA Champions League/Super Cup runners up. No doubt this was one of …
Scholes' Criticism Of Schweinsteiger: Unnecessary or Necessary?

Scholes' Criticism Of Schweinsteiger: Unnecessary or Necessary?

Paul Scholes has singled out Manchester United midfielder Schweinsteiger for criticism. He feels Schweinsteiger has been too cautious in his play for the Old Trafford club and the former United midfielder thinks it’s a result of how Van Gaal has asked his team to play. The German midfielder arrived at Old Trafford from Bayern Munich in the summer and he’s become a regular in Louis van Gaal’s team alongside either Michael Carrick or Morgan Schneiderlin in midfield. But Scholes believes Schweinsteiger, …
Leon Osman: 400 Not Out

Leon Osman: 400 Not Out

Practically a dying breed at the top level of English football, Leon Osman rose through the youth ranks at Everton FC, and bearing two short loan spells at Carlisle and Derby County early doors in his career, he has gone on to be an increasingly rare one-club-player. On Saturday 23rd November 2014, Osman notched 400 career appearance for the Toffees, topping off the impressive milestone with a characteristically smart goal in front of the home end to ignite passionate celebrations all …
What next for Anderson? | Manchester United Stats

What next for Anderson? | Manchester United Stats

Undeniable talent. Consistently inconsistent. Injury-prone. Just some of the phrases that pop up when I think of this over-weight Brazilian. Anderson plays in the middle of the park, and was bought for a hefty fee of around £20 million in the 2007 summer transfer window. He was immediately handed the #8 shirt, previously worn by Wayne Rooney, underlining his importance and the belief the club and ex-boss Sir Alex had in him. He's never really excited the Old Trafford faithful but …
