The Season Football Came Home To Manchester

Tag: Manchester United @ 3:42 pm

“For the first time since the late 1960s, Manchester emerged as the capital of English football in 2011/12, as 19-times champions United were confronted by local rivals City in a local skirmish which spilled over into a battle for the Barclays Premier League title.”

This year’s Season review had a lot to live up to. The previous DVD offering for the 2010/11 season had been roundly criticised in many quarters, especially when reflecting on  a record breaking 19th League winning season. So the Manchester United Merchandise Team needed a suitable reply! I believe they have done…..

United promise to phone our Ex-Season Ticket Holder

Is this the final chapter for our Ex-Season Ticket Holder?

Tag: The Paul McGeady Story @ 12:56 pm

RedRants has supported Paul McGeady throughout his ongoing complaint with the club about their tactics and their treatment of its fans, in particular its season ticket holders and members.

If you haven’t been following the dispute or the correspondence they’re all under The Features tab.

In the latest letter to the club Paul responds to NOT receving any reply despite being informed his complaint was now ‘Official’, seems it’s the final straw, I wonder how many other fans there are like Paul, his brother and his Dad, I certainly no from experience he’s not the only one. Read his latest letter here.

The year that was…1994

Tag: The Year That Was @ 11:20 am

After breaking a 26-year-long wait for a league title, United started the 1993-94 season as the bookies’ favourites, after the capture, for a then British record of £3.75 million, of Roy Keane from Nottingham Forest.

The 21-year-old Irishman had been closely followed by Arsenal and Blackburn but arrived at Old Trafford on July the 19th while a week later legendary Spanish rider Miguel Indurain would win the Tour de France.

Keane makes his debut for United against Arsenal in the Charity Shield (as it was known then), as United lift their first trophy of the season by beating the Gunners on penalties in the traditional season curtain-raiser on August the 7th.

Player of the Season – Antonio Valencia

Tag: Player of the Month @ 12:59 am

Coming at the end of a long season, which Manchester United had to struggle to deal with countless injuries, City’s increasing financial assets, a disappointing early exit from the Champions League, and the final heartbreak of City taking the League title with 2 goals in stoppage time, there was one player who had no negative aspect to his performance. This season was definitely a standout for Antonio Valencia. He came to Manchester United from Wigan in the summer of 2009. That season, he had a breakout season for the Red Devils, as he created numerous goal scoring chances for Wayne Rooney from the wing. He had a great first season with Manchester United, earning a place in the Premier League Team of the Season. Last season, unfortunately, he suffered a broken leg  on international duty that never really allowed him to make much of a contribution. Continue reading
