Groundhog de Gea

Tag: Manchester United Players @ 8:45 am

Excuse me.....I'm better than I was 12 months ago! David De GeaIt’s been just 18 months since United found and signed the next ‘World’s Best Goalkeeper’ from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2011. Is it working out for club and player though? Are United facing the same hunt to fill the Number One shirt again, just 60 appearances later?

If rumours are to be believed, the relationship between United and De Gea is not one made in heaven. De Gea is seemingly ‘homesick’ and United are openly touting new keepers.

I’m not one to get on the backs of players just for the sake of it or because the player is the latest name heavily criticised on the media bandwagon, in De Gea’s case though, I’m accused of it.

Cold, silence and vintage Giggsy – it’s second time lucky against the Hammers

Tag: Match Reports @ 10:42 pm

Giggs v WHU FA Cup Jan 2013Ryan Giggs rolled back the years and produced a vintage performance as United moved into the fourth round of the FA Cup after an insipid 1-0 win against West Ham at Old Trafford. The Welshman was one of the few positives of a game in which United never really got going and risked more than they would have liked.

With a trip to White Hart Lane looming large on the horizon, the return from injury of Nani, Wayne Rooney and Anderson meant that despite ringing 10 changes from Sunday’s win against Liverpool, Sir Alex Ferguson could still afford the luxury of fielding a strong-looking team.

United resist Liverpool’s attempted pickpocketing.

Tag: Match Reports @ 4:58 pm

Championship winning teams build their destinies onto world class players, teamwork ethic and the virtue of weather through a storm and come out unscathed, scarred and bruised perhaps but, ultimately, winning. Manchester United definitely possess all of these requirements and showed it once more today.

United welcome Suarez & Co

Tag: Betegy,Match Preview @ 9:42 pm

Neville v CarragherIn years gone by the welcome awaiting the scousers would be turgid and hostile with an edge to it that only a United/Liverpool derby clash could create. Now, despite even the recent history and politics surrounding the fixture, the welcome awaiting the scousers will be tepid in comparison.

On the pitch however, Liverpool will find United in no way welcoming as they staunchly protect their 7 game unbeaten run assisting them hopefully on the way to furthering their record breaking 19th league title. If our betting prediction partner Betegy are to be believed, United have a 33% chance of putting three past the scousers in Sundays early afternoon showdown at Old Trafford.
