A Blast from the Past - Returning Players

A Blast from the Past - Returning Players

With on-going speculation of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United building each day, it got us thinking, just how often have players returned to their beloved clubs in the Premier League? It’s common to see your club’s star man pack up and start a fresh in Europe at top clubs, Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich. But it seems the grass isn’t always greener on the other side and even Ronaldo can be tempted by a return to England. Here …
Dennis Bergkamp: Guilty Pleasure of a Manchester United fan

Dennis Bergkamp: Guilty Pleasure of a Manchester United fan

We’ve all got one. The one we weren’t allowed to look at; the one we had to admire in secret, from a distance. One more appropriate to deny than to acknowledge, to dismiss than to appreciate. Guilty pleasures in football usually cross supporting lines. It’s very seldom that one can support one of the top sides and not suddenly themselves in awe, in nearly shameful veneration of a particular talent that not only plays for a rival team, but in …
Martial's first Manchester Derby

Martial's first Manchester Derby

In a Manchester derby defined by both manager’s risk-averse approach and an overall lack of clear goal-scoring chances, Martial’s darting runs from the left wing were a welcome breath of fresh air. In his first derby, the young Frenchman was by far the most exciting player on the pitch, the only one who seemed likely to break the tightly contested deadlock. Even though the circumstances hardly allowed for it, Anthony Martial put in another stellar performance. It was, once again, …
The Ghost of Pep - Premier League's Finest Line Up for Guardiola

The Ghost of Pep - Premier League's Finest Line Up for Guardiola

Both Manchester City and United will be casting longing gazes at Pep Guardiola to try and ensure they capture him as their next manager. The cache of Pep is the ideal image of a manager who is capable of creating beautiful football. Globally Pep probably tops the list of managers wanted by most elite clubs. He is stain free, and the most sought after "brand enhancing" manager a club can get. Equally with two seasons at Bayern where winning the …

Liverpool vs Norwich Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

On the back of two successive defeats in the Premier League, Brendan Rodgers faces a must win game when Norwich visit Anfield on Sunday. His future at the club is what will dominate headlines regardless of the result, and following a decent draw with a second string side against Bordeaux in midweek, Liverpool need the three points to keep up pace with United, who beat them last week, and Arsenal with both teams still only 3 points ahead of them. Norwich …
Match Report: Crystal Palace 1 - 2 Manchester United

Match Report: Crystal Palace 1 - 2 Manchester United

Saturday's late kickoff saw two teams on a three-game losing streak clash. Home side Crystal Palace have effectively nothing left to play for other than personal pride, whereas Manchester United were desperately seeking points in order to consolidate a precious fourth position above chasing Liverpool. And so at Selhurst Park, the two sides played out a sloppy, high tempo affair that resulted in the away side pulling out the win despite a major scare. Pre match, there were a few …
Why Herrera Could Be Man United's Very Own Iniesta

Why Herrera Could Be Man United's Very Own Iniesta

Before scoffing at the title and deeming this an unfairly premature comparison, kindly read further. The fact that I had to bring a legendary figure like Andres Iniesta into this is purely down to my unconditional love towards Herrera and also, the fact that I want him to do it the way Iniesta does, in the Premier League for the team I quite admire. And also the fact that, well, Herrera could actually turn out to be someone who's at least …
