Fear factor will return to Old Trafford this season

Tag: Opinion Piece @ 12:16 pm

rp_image2-350x242.jpgThe World Cup has been brilliant, with many fans sharing their belief that it has been the best tournament that they can remember. I agree, but with all the hype of the World Cup in full flow, I can’t help but feel more excited for the coming season than I have done about any previous tournament or Premier League campaign. The feeling of football returning to Old Trafford is something that will always remain unparalleled.

It’s two days until the Manchester United obsession can begin again, and whilst Louis has a few days off with his family, United are moving. The £750M kit deal with Adidas has been officially announced, and it is clear that we remain active in the transfer market; You only have to type #Vidal in to Twitter for reports to suggest that a deal for the Chilean maestro is imminent.

Is it time to sell United forgotten man?

The Japanese would have undoubtedly been happy to see his former teammate shine on the biggest stage of them all and perhaps he also thought that he too still has a chance of redemption.

Integral figures to the Dortmund side that won back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012, neither Gotze nor Kagawa excelled after leaving the Westfalenstadion and while the former has largely atoned his inconsistent form for Bayern Munich by carving himself a spot into Germans hearts, the latter must be hoping that one of the biggest characters of the 2014 World Cup will give him another chance to shine at Old Trafford.

LVG: “United must be like Holland”

Tag: Manchester United News @ 12:57 pm

louis-van-gaal-the-netherlands-world-cup_3168088Louis Van Gaal wants his Manchester United to resemble the Holland squad he steered to third place at the World Cup and the Dutchman has expressed his desire for United players to be “singing from the same hymn sheet”.

After a successful World Cup, Van Gaal will officially be unveiled as Manchester United manager this week, before flying out to the US for United’s summer tour – unlike Robin Van Persie, who will miss the North American tour after having been given three weeks off – when the job of rebuilding the squad that collapsed under David Moyes will begin in its earnest.

Tag: Manchester United News @ 11:08 am

New 2014-15 Kit LaunchAdidas will replace Nike as Manchester United’s kit manufacturer from the start of the 2015-16 season, after United clinched a deal with the German company worth a staggering £70m-a-year, more than double the amount United currently pocket from Nike.

Tag: Opinion Piece,Transfer Rumours @ 1:10 am

Di Maria - Real MadridThere are reports surfacing via Twitter that a Spanish radio show, Onda Cero, suggest Manchester United may well be about to purchase Angel Di Maria for €60m (£47m).

If the deal went ahead it would break Real Madrid’s highest ever fee received for a player.

“He’s keen to go to Manchester” the reports quote. WHO exactly made the quote is, at present, unknown but according to Football Journalist, Rafael Hernandez (@RafaelH117) “Onda Cero are worth listening to claiming Di Maria to Manchester United is a real possibility.”

Five possible replacements for Patrice Evra

Tag: Opinion Piece @ 1:15 pm

Riccardo-RodriguezWith Patrice Evra’s move to Juventus set to be completed before the end of the week, Manchester United find themselves needing a left-back to provide cover for Luke Shaw, given the former Southampton man is currently the only option available in that particular role. However, given Shaw looked poised to be Louis Van Gaal’s first option at left-back, United do not necessarily need an older player to mentor the 19-year-old and could opt for another young prospect.

Here’s five players who could represent a valid alternative to Evra.
