Flying partnerships give United wingers

Whenever people talk about great Manchester United players they will mostly come up with the name of a player who has taken up a very special position for the club. The winger. Despite having possessed great players in every position like Bobby Charlton, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, and Wayne Rooney, there is no secret that width has always been the forte of Manchester United. Players like George Best, Steve Coppell, Ryan Giggs, Andrei Kanchelskis, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, many of which have been mentioned as great players of the game in one way or another, have all marvelled the wing for the Red Devils. However, since the great Portuguese left for sunny Spain we have witnessed a change of guards and tactics. Despite having more than decent players in Nani, Valencia, Young and Park, the variety amongst them make United the massive force they are. They have all got the individual skill to take a team apart, but looking deeper into it you notice exactly how Sir Alex manages to get the best out of them for the team.

** UPDATE ** The Demise of a Season Ticket Holder

Paul McGeady, the despondent face behind the Demise of the United Season Ticket Holder, has finally received a response to the letter he sent the club requesting answers to his ticketing issues. (if you haven’t read the original article I strongly advise you do before reading on)

Paul’s story resonated with fans for days after his heartfelt article first hit the blog, it’s clearly an all-too familiar tale for many fans not just those who began supporting their club during much leaner, less comfortable, more affordable times. It would appear that a sponsors right to seats is more valued than the wishes and support of a loyal, match-going fan.

Left-Back to the Future

Most Manchester United fans can agree that Patrice Evra has had some uneven performances this year. He has started almost all of Manchester United’s game at left-back, and with Nemanja Vidic out most of the year with injuries, Evra has worn the captain’s armband. But the time seems to be coming when Manchester United will need to contemplate who will play at left back in the years to come.

Tag: Podcast @ 5:26 pm

If you’re listening on a Mobile Device, use this link – Episode 25Welcome to the twenty- fifth Can They Score Manchester United podcast. After a busy week, this pod sees Jonas, Steven, Tom and I look back at our disappointing 2-1 defeat against Ajax, nerve-racking victory at Carrow Road and preview our domestic PL match against Spurs, on Sunday; including an interview with Spurs blogger, Jack from You’ll Win Nothing With Yids.

Questions Discussed Include: Just how amazing is Ryan Giggs? When Lindegaard’s prolonged absence was confirmed, a lot of people said it would be make or break for David De Gea; just how well has he done over the last few weeks? United visibly improved when switched to three in Central Midfield. Would you like to see more of this system in the remaining games? The last couple of games have been characterised by an inability to keep the ball for sustained periods. Why do you think this problem has returned? Tactically, how do you expect Sir Alex to approach this fixture at WHL?

Vote for Player of the Month – Febuary 2012

Tag: Player of the Month @ 4:32 pm

As we enter March we take another step closer to ‘squeaky bum time’. This February threw up tricky looking fixtures in the Premier League with trips to Stamford Bridge to face a ‘transitional’ Chelsea, and to Carrow Road to take on the relatively high-flying Norwich City. Sandwiched between those league games United welcomed hosted Liverpool in a more highly anticipated than usual clash thanks to the return of racist centre forward Luis Suarez who unforgivably failed to shake the hand of United captain, Patrice Evra. Consecutive Thursday nights were taken up tackling Ajax in a somewhat haphazard manner in the highly coveted Europa League.
