Paul Pogba nearing return to action for Manchester United

Paul Pogba nearing return to action for Manchester United

#Pogback The Mirror report that Luke Shaw crashed into Phil Jones’ car with his big old car. Because it is international week, we are stuck with utter turd in the news. Jones is back because he was injured while on international duty, though it is not expected to be too serious an injury. Shaw is with the United squad that aren’t on international duty, because Ashley Young is a better option for both United and England. Both are expected to be out for 18 months after suffering minor footballers’ whiplash. Having said that, Jones thinks that he should be able to play at the weekend,...

Manchester United’s duff left-back attracts Turkish attention Last night, Andi and I went to the Opta sports quiz, where we warred relentlessly over who knew the most about football. It turns out, out of the two of us, the most knowledgeable one is the BT Sport team. Well done, and thank you for giving me the chance to pad out this blog with a few words in the international break. Andy Burnham, mayor of Manchester who quit mainstream parliamentary politics in protest as an actual socialist leading the Labour Party, has admittedly done something reasonable by saying that football clubs...

José Mourinho reportedly has to sell before buying anyone else

José Mourinho reportedly has to sell before buying anyone else

According to the BBC, Mourinho will be told to offload players if he wants to make any further additions. If José Mourinho wants to make any additions to his squad in January, he’ll have to sell players first. That’s according to the BBC’s Simon Stone, who claims that the Manchester United manager will be told that “the Old Trafford board want to control costs before sanctioning more outlay on new signings.” Stone claims that Luke Shaw is the most likely to leave, though the future of Marouane Fellaini — whose contract expires at the end of the season — is unclear. The...

The strange headaches of Manchester United

The strange headaches of Manchester United

Second in the league, but nobody seems to be having any fun. We try to work out why. Football is weird. Manchester United are second in the league, are miles better than they were last season, and nobody seems to be enjoying themselves. The fans are quiet, the manager is a surly bundle of neuroses, and the players … well they seem to be getting on with things as much as possible. Juan Mata remains adorable, and Luke Shaw remains in exile. Here at tBB, we reckon this curious ambivalence can be traced back to four factors that are all, in themselves, fairly ordinary, but work against one...

The engine of progress is conflict

The engine of progress is conflict

Revolt Gary Neville has claimed that Anthony Martial appears to be playing at around ‘85%’ and that there is something not quite right with him. Martial isn’t the player he was in his first season at Old Trafford, that’s undeniable. In his second season he was perhaps the most disappointing forward, but this season things appear to have improved again. Perhaps learning defensive responsibilities from Jose Mourinho has unsettled and distracted him, and he is only reapplying himself after finding out he would be staying at the club for this season, at least. Luke Shaw was again...

Jose Mourinho maintains ‘fantastic relationship’ with squad

Jose Mourinho maintains ‘fantastic relationship’ with squad

He’s not selling them all yet. Jose Mourinho was so hacked off with the gutless display against Huddersfield that he cancelled the planned trip for his players to attend a NFL game in Wembley on Sunday. I’m not entirely sure how it’s a punishment to stop people having to watch NFL, but it is a bafflingly popular game over here too, now. Scott McTominay and Axel Tuanzebe both played well enough to justify some more inclusion over the next few Premier League games. Luke Shaw fears that his Manchester United career is over. If there’s any justice, then his poor training, weight...
