This summer has been a comedy of errors and one big con job on all of us and it still amazes me how many of you cling onto the belief that something major will come down before the 3rd.
I for one am fed up and have almost given up talking about this fiasco and charade, as it’s clear nobody can handle the truth. You want to blame somebody? Blame the owners, not the paid lackeys who are ordered to carry out their wishes to a tee.
Ravel Morrison is a changed man according to Sam Allardyce and looks set to be handed his first Premier League start.
The ex-United youth product was widely considered to be the standout prospect amongst the multi-talented squad which won the FA Youth Cup in 2011 but struggled with high profile off-field misdemeanours.
This report is taken from SkySports.com regarding a bid made by United for Atletico Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.
Athletic Bilbao say they have turned down an offer from Manchester United for midfielder Ander Herrera.
Club president Josu Urrutia claims a firm bid for the 24-year-old was lodged on Thursday and immediately dismissed.
And Urrutia says the only way Herrera will leave the club is if he demands a move and his release clause – reported to be £30.75m – is met.
New manager, new staff, new era. This season is the biggest of David Moyes’s career. He is an unfamiliar face in the Old Trafford dugout, after the 26 year reign from Sir Alex Ferguson. Yet Moyes has the potential to be one of United’s top managers. I’m going to tell you five reasons why David Moyes can retain our title in his first season at the biggest club in the world, Manchester United. No pressure Moyes!
Roberto Martinez believes it’s time the powers-that-be sorted out the timing of the summer transfer window to end unhelpful speculation surrounding players.
Martinez was speaking generally in a press conference about how disruptive it is to have transfers available while the season was open and I couldn’t agree more.
He was reacting after United tabled an improved £36m joint-bid for Fellaini and Baines earlier this week but had it swiftly rejected.
Manchester United were handed a relatively group in today’s Champions League draw in Nyon, Switzerland. David Moyes’ first European campaign in charge of United will see them facing Shakthar Donetsk, Bayer Leverkusen and Real Sociedad.
The meetings against the Spanish and Ukranian sides will represent a first for United, while the trip to Leverkusen will evoke bad memories in many Reds, as United were knocked out in the Champions League semifinal by the Germans in 2002.
With the transfer window entering its final five days, Manchester United have been dealt a new blow as Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil has insisted he has no intention to leave the Spanish capital, meaning that David Moyes will have to look elsewhere if he is to bolster his midfield between here and September 2.
Ozil was thought to be open to a move away from the Bernabeu after doubts were casted over his position in the starting XI this summer, following the arrival of Spanish wonder-kid Isco from Malaga, while new Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti looks keen to resurrect the career of Brazilian playmaker Kaka.
They’re only rumours but TalkSport are reporting Leighton Baines has asked his club to allow him to leave thus paving the way for his dream move to Old Trafford.
The Everton fullback has up until now kept completely silent and been praised for his conduct while United attempted to lure him away. But, as the windows-end looms ever larger, it appears Baines has lost patience and changed his tactics.
