Is Ed Woodward A Problem For José Mourinho At Manchester United?

José Mourinho has been talking to a French newspaper reporter. During his conversation with said reporter, it is reported that he mentioned that Manchester United would not be his last club.

Would scrapping the Carabao Cup be an advantage for United and other English teams in Europe?

José Mourinho recently came out in favour of scrapping the League Cup. This is not a new idea and has been mooted in the past on a few occasions. It has now been around since 1960 and is, therefore, in it’s 57th year. Ironically it was originally introduced to combat the growing popularity of European …

Will Manchester United Be The First English Club To Spend 100 Million On One Player?

Whysayanything.com recently ran a poll asking which English club would be the first to spend £100 million on one player. The winner of the poll was Manchester United. Now, on a website which concentrates 75% of it’s efforts on Manchester United, this result was not entirely unexpected although Manchester City and Chelsea both registered quite a …

Is There Any Point In The Super Cup Game Between Real Madrid And Manchester United?

When Manchester United first won the European Cup back in 1968 there was a Super Cup of sorts. In those days the game was played between the winners of the Copa Libertadores in South America and the European champions. It was a two-legged affair and nearly always bad-tempered with sendings off being the rule rather …

The reason United are struggling in the transfer window

He’s dillied and dallied, dallied and dillied and now he’s lost his way and don’t know where to roam. Dithering Ed Woodward summed up in the words of a song. Why is he still conducting transfer business? Having overseen the signings of Angel Di Maria, (how successful was that?), at which time he overpaid for …

Along With Lukaku The Purchase Of Two Of These Three Players Can Bring The Title Back To Old Trafford As Wayne Rooney Returns To Everton

It looks like the dastardly deed has finally been done. Manchester United have, apparently, signed Romelu Lukaku, which should solve the “who is going to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic?” conundrum. The spending cannot stop there however as United still need a full back and either a defensive midfielder to allow Pogba and Herrera to get forward, …

Manchester United need to start signing players quickly

Although the transfer window only officially opened on July 1st, clubs have been negotiating, tapping up and generally doing all they can to encourage their main targets to leave their current clubs since around the beginning of June. This has led to the signings of the likes of Victor Lindelof at Manchester United and Ederson …

Is Wayne Rooney’s arrogance matched only by his greed?

Wayne Rooney is arrogant, make no mistake about it. No need to point out that most top football players are arrogant, this one is arrogant in a most disrespectful way. He obviously still thinks that he is good enough to play for Manchester United. The problem is that José Mourinho, his coaches and a few …

Finally The Right Man Is In Charge At Old Trafford

At the end of last season when all the trophies were being counted this is how the table stood: There is no doubt that Manchester United should be posing a more serious challenge for the title than they have managed in recent years. There is also no doubt, however, that José Mourinho, whilst realising the …

What Next For Zlatan?

The big Swede should be just about as fit as he will get by the start of next season. Before then he has a decision to make. One of his options will probably be to stay at Manchester United whilst others, according to his agent, include remaining in the Premier League but with another club. …

It Is nobody else’s fault, the buck has to stop with the Glazers

Manchester United seem to have gone a long way backwards in order to go forwards again. It is often said that a team will benefit from relegation. They will have a season whereby they can strengthen and regroup in order to come back stronger the following season. Try telling that to Leeds United or Nottingham …

If Manchester United Can Be Charged Because Their Players Surrounded The Referee, Why Can’t The Referee Be Charged With Being A Chelsea Supporter?

Ander Herrera was sent off for a second bookable offence. The only problem was that it wasn’t a bookable offence. This “decision” ruined any chance United may have had of winning the game and meant that their best player, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, was sacrificed in order to bring on a defensive midfielder in Marouane Fellaini. From …

United Should Qualify For The Champion’s League Twice!

There is absolutely no reason why Manchester United shouldn’t win the Europa League. There is also absolutely no reason why they shouldn’t finish in the top four of the Premier League. With a three goal advantage going into tomorrow’s second leg game with St. Etienne, qualification for the next round should be a formality. The …

Manchester United Must Start To Succeed When Others Fail

For Manchester United to finish in the top four of the Premier League a few things have to happen. Firstly, they have to stop drawing games, particularly at Old Trafford. This means they need to score from more of the opportunities they are creating. Recently, Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata have been guilty …

Wayne Rooney – A Good Player But Is He A Legend?

There has been plenty written about Wayne Rooney over the past few years. Some of it good and some of it not so good. There have been times when he has deserved the good press and others where he has deserved the bad. Occasionally, there have even been times when he hasn’t deserved some of …
