Manchester United report millions in revenue

Manchester United report millions in revenue

This is a world destruction. Your life ain’t nothing. Ryan Giggs has done something unusual, and said something sensible. He was talking about Marcus Rashford, who has sat out most of the recent games on the bench. Rashford hasn’t been poor, but he has looked woolly-headed and slow to take the sensible decision. He has always been decisive, but it seems that this has lately verged into unreasonable selfishness. It’s no disaster, and for such a young player he still shows remarkable promise, but Giggs has correctly identified that Rashford needs to step up his game. This has only been...

Mourinho’s mind games have helped push Conte towards a Chelsea exit

Mourinho’s mind games have helped push Conte towards a Chelsea exit

Since their war of words, Conte has seen his side’s form nosedive, and he may not even be in the job when the two managers meet again later this month. It is no secret that José Mourinho and Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte are not exactly the best of friends. The two have feuded ever since the latter’s arrival in England a year and a half ago, and it has certainly been entertaining for anyone who loves some good Premier League mind games. With Conte’s Chelsea seemingly struggling both on and off the pitch, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s past with managers, and a difficult run of...

Patrice Evra returns to the Premier League!

Patrice Evra returns to the Premier League!

Uncle Pat has joined West Ham until the end of the season. Manchester United legend and Kop favourite Patrice Evra has returned to the Premier League. The 36-year-old left-back, who made over 350 appearances in an eight-year stint at Old Trafford, has signed a “short-term” contract at David Moyes’ West Ham United — believed to run until the end of the season. We love this game! #ForEvraBlowingBubbles pic.twitter.com/UugpXaL6um— West Ham United (@WestHamUtd) February 7, 2018 It signals Evra’s return to action after having his contract terminated by Marseille in the...

Manchester United linked with move for Samir Nasri

Manchester United linked with move for Samir Nasri

By us, with little evidence. Well, no evidence. The second greatest living Frenchman, Patrice Evra, is coming back to England. Patrice Evra is on the verge of joining West Ham on a free transfer. At 36, it would only be a short term move, and it would require UEFA to give Evra special dispensation as he is banned. The ban came when he heroically kicked a Marseille supporter and gobshite. Evra almost rejoined United in the winter transfer last year but a so-far anonymous figure blocked the move. There’s a story here in The Telegraph that after the Munich disaster, Real Madrid made the...

Remembering Munich, 60 years on

Remembering Munich, 60 years on

In memory of those killed in the Munich air disaster, February 6th, 1958 Today marks the 60th anniversary of the Munich air disaster, in which eight Manchester United players, three United staff members, and 12 others were killed. A service is taking place at Old Trafford today to mark the occasion, which will include a minute’s silence at 15.04, the time of the crash. That young United side, the Busby Babes, were the reigning champions of English football. They were returning from a 3-3 draw with Red Star Belgrade, which had put them through to the semi-finals of the European Cup. Having...

Alexis Sánchez is world class, but what United really needed in January was a midfielder

Alexis Sánchez is world class, but what United really needed in January was a midfielder

United could not pass up on the opportunity to sign Sánchez, but he does not address the most pressing need in the team. The January transfer window was a golden opportunity for Manchester United to snatch quality talent and bolster the midfield and attacking forefront going into the final stretch of the season. I think we can all agree that Alexis Sánchez is a world class talent who was desperately searching for a new home away from Arsenal. With Manchester City hesitating on the purchase of Sánchez, United was able to swap Henrikh Mkhitaryan in exchange for the Chilean...

United could swoop for Real Madrid midfielder

United could swoop for Real Madrid midfielder

Mateo Kovačić is said to be open to a move to Manchester. Manchester United have a midfield problem, and even José Mourinho admits it. As good as Paul Pogba may be, it’s unwise to expect him to run things single-handedly in the centre of the park. And with Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick both seemingly on their way out of Old Trafford in the summer, it’s a problem of depth as much as quality. One potential arrival is Real Madrid’s Mateo Kovačić, who has struggled to break into Zinedine Zidane’s starting lineup. The Croatian international — who made the move to Madrid...

Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann returns to France after being booed by Atletico fans

Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann returns to France after being booed by Atletico fans

Gone fishin’ Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann has done one back to France after being booed by supporters of his current side, Atletico Madrid. He failed to move on in the winter, and rumours of a move to Barcelona have dampened down following their purchase of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool. Unless United get rid of Romelu Lukaku then it is hard to see where Griezmann would fit in at United after they got hold of Alexis Sanchez, but Ed Woodward does like spending billions on attackers and leaving Phil Jones and Chris Smalling alone. Following his move from Arsenal, Sanchez...

Mourinho is not afraid to play hardball - with his players, and with United’s owners

Mourinho is not afraid to play hardball - with his players, and with United’s owners

Mourinho is as demanding when it comes to on-pitch production as he is when it comes to off-pitch financial backing. José Mourinho is willing to play hardball with his owners and his players, which is convenient for Manchester United’s continued overhaul. While progress is evident, if glacial, more will be demanded from above, below – and the manager himself. Mourinho celebrated a contract extension, 55th birthday and 100th game in charge at Yeovil in modest surroundings and routine fashion. An opportunity to cement their best-of-the-rest standing in the league, away at a rival, was...

Manchester United in talks for Justin Kluivert

Manchester United in talks for Justin Kluivert

Kluivert is a football player Andy Dunn of The Mirror was impressed by Alexis Sanchez’s performance against Huddersfield Town for Manchester United. Sanchez was at the heart of much of United’s best play - not that this was especially good - and scored his first goal for United with a penalty. Sanchez gives United what they often lack, which is someone who is just prepared to take the ball and drive towards goal. For too long, everything has been a bit Louis van Gaal - this could be a positive change away from that. The Telegraph, too, was a fan of the Chilean international’s...

Manchester United Champions League squad announced

Mourinho adds Alexis Sánchez to squad list ahead of knockout fixture vs Sevilla José Mourinho has included Alexis Sánchez in Manchester United’s Champions League squad. Sanchez, who has replaced Henrik Mkhitaryan in the squad, is the most notable change to the United team. The Reds travel to Sevilla later this month for the first of two legs in the knockout stage. The 29-year-old, who was involved in a swap deal with Henrik Mkhitaryan, is not cup-tied due to Arsenal’s absence from the elite European competition. James Wilson has been omitted from the squad list after he moved to...

Manchester United 2-0 Huddersfield Town: Lukaku and Sánchez score as Reds close gap

Alexis Sánchez scored on his home United debut in a dominant win. Manchester United bounced back from a disappointing mid-week loss to defeat Huddersfield Town on Saturday, thanks to second half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sánchez. The win takes United to within touching distance (just 13 points now!) of league leaders Manchester City, who dropped points earlier in the day. José Mourinho responded to the lifeless performance against Spurs by making four changes to his starting XI. Ashley Young, Phil Jones, Anthony Martial, and - most notably - Paul Pogba were all dropped from the...
