The Academy: Blackburn Rovers 3 – 2 MUFC

Tag: Academy @ 6:21 pm

It’s always part of the script when you visit Brockhall Village so be prepared for a battle. Blackburn gave exactly that yesterday and came away with points after giving United’s considerably smaller lads a roughing up early on in the game and stamping their authority with two well taken, but somewhat gifted finishes in the opening 21 minutes. Despite the loss United will take positives from their performance in tricky conditions and against stiff opposition.

United Face Tricky Trip to Stoke

Despite their struggles away from home, there were few teams last season who had a realistic chance to pick up a result both home and away against Manchester United. One of those teams was Stoke, who hung with United in both meetings last season and were unlucky to not come away with at least a point.

All Time Best XI Series: Right Midfield / Right Wing

Tag: All Time Best XI Series @ 9:11 pm

I must say that when I was asked if I would like to write an article whereby I get to select Manchester United’s top ten all time right sided midfielders, I jumped at the opportunity with great pleasure and enthusiasm. As a historically powerful juggernaut United have made it easy to pick top tens for all positions. The club goes back a long time but it also has such a rich and successful history that it’s been blessed with incredibly talented players who have plied their trade at Old Trafford. Nowhere is that more obvious than the position of Right Midfielder/Right Wing. The list of greatness to have occupied that part of the field is simply so awe inspiring one would have to dig deep to find another club in world football that can match or beat this top ten list for class and skill.

The Evolution Of Nani

Tag: Manchester United Players @ 9:20 am


Nani has received a lot of (deserved) praise in last 18 months for stepping up his game and maturing as a player. United’s player of the year last season, the creator of THAT goal against Arsenal, the Playstation-esque chip against Tottenham, and a fistful of crucial goals that have sometimes been forgotten (like his goal against City last season right before Rooney scored his ‘goal’). carries an excellent interview with Nani, where he talks about the transformations in the squad over the summer, his left foot and the constant comparisons with Ronaldo.

Chelsea Becomes Latest Victim of United’s ‘Pitchkrieg’

Tag: Classic Posts,Match Reports @ 10:01 am

Well, it seemed like another day ‘out back of wood shed’ with Chelsea being the latest victim fed to the wood chipper. Sounds better than another day in the office or walk in the park I think.  Manchester United took care of business and disposed of Chelsea in what must go down as one of the most exciting end-to-end matches between the sides.  This game had a bit of everything and it could easily have ended up in a 5-5 draw.  Both teams played well offensively and both had numerous scoring chances but in the end the difference was our width and our touch of class when it comes to finishing off our chances even though we were wasteful today and oh so very sloppy.

United Welcome Title Rivals Chelsea To Old Trafford

As dangerous as archrivals City have looked in the early part of the Premier League season, it could be easy to dismiss Chelsea as the main challenger to the Manchester United throne. United and Chelsea have combined to win the last seven Premier League titles, with the two sides claiming the top two spots in the final league table four times in that span.
