Everton send fan a Ross Barkley shirt with Manchester United’s badge on it

One Everton fan got a bit of a surprise when he was given a Ross Barkley shirt ordered from the official store as there was a Manchester United badge printed on the bottom of it.

That’s some top trolling from Everton there to do that. To be fair, I’ll take Barkley off Everton’s hands – he can be included in any deal which sees Morgan Schneiderlin or Memphis Depay heads in the other direction.

And to prove it wasn’t a prank, the lad even uploaded a video showing it wasn’t even a sticker!

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: This is what I really think about Wayne Rooney at Man United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: This is what I really think about Wayne Rooney at Man United


Zlatan Ibrahimovic has heaped praise on Wayne Rooney, labelling the 31-year-old as a fantastic person and a perfect player.

The captain impressed Manchester United fans with a commanding performance against Feyenoord on Thursday night, picking up a goal and an assist to wrap up a convincing 4-0 win.

Rooney’s goal – a cooly taken chip in the 35th minute – secured the Englishman’s place as Man United’s all-time leading European goalscorer.

Ibrahimovic, speaking after the game, was quick to shower praise on the 31-year-old.

“First of all as a person he is fantastic. I have [had] the luck to get to know him as a person,” he said.

“As a player, there are no words to say about him because he is the perfect player.

“Everyone knows what he can do and what he has done so I am happy for him that he broke the record.

“When you are a person like that, people are interested and want to know everything. I don’t know what happened – I didn’t even ask him because it’s not important for me.”

Rooney’s performance against Feyenoord was evocative of a happier time in the Englishman’s career. He was faster, more clinical, more energetic, and angry. Angry in the old-fashioned Rooney way, where pent up fury would manifest itself through a rip-roaring performance, as opposed to the current form of angry Rooney, which essentially consists of him shouting expletives at the referee.

The captain clearly felt as if he had a point to prove. This game, you could tell, was significant. Whether such a change of attitude came as a result of recent tabloid noise surrounding his drunken antics is unknown. The prospect of being within touching distance of history – both with the European goalscoring record and all-time goalscoring record – could have also been a motivating factor.

Either way, United fans will hope to see this Rooney more often this season.

Smalling’s injury another blow for a shaky United defence

Tag: Manchester United Players @ 5:13 am

Although Jose Mourinho’s comments about commitment to the cause after the win over Swansea City were more than likely aimed at Chris Smalling, the defender’s injury gives the Portuguese coach another headache with Arsenal in waiting after the international break.

Manchester United’s success in the Sir Alex Ferguson era was based on great defence, with some legendary partnerships at the heart of the team’s rearguard.

From Pallister and Bruce through to Vidic and Ferdinand, a host of excellent centre-halves have graced the Old Trafford turf in the modern era, but the current crop do not inspire such confidence.

Smalling is set to be on the sidelines for a month with a broken toe and although the England international has not been an automatic first-choice for Mourinho this term, it is robbing the Red Devils of arguably their best defender.

Ander Herrera explains why Man United performed so well in the second half


Ander Herrera has revealed what changed for Manchester United in the second-half against Manchester City in the EFL Cup.

Jose Mourinho’s side claimed a 1-0 victory over Pep Guardiola’s squad as Juan Mata found the only goal of the game at Old Trafford.

The Spaniard was pressing high to win the ball inside Man City’s box and opened up the chance for Mata in the second-half.

Speaking after the game, Herrera explained that Mata’s goal allowed players to remain calm.

“In the first-half it’s always tough as no one wants to lose and there’s tension,” he said.

“In the second-half we were more calm and with Mata scoring the goal it was easier, it’s for the fans and we lost the last derby they were disappointed but now they can be proud.”

Man United looked like a completely different team in the second-half as Luke Shaw came back, despite getting continuously ripped by Jesus Navas in the first-half, a new solid player.

Fans were left furious with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s first 45 minutes and Jamie Carragher even labelled it as the big Swede’s worst half of his entire career, but he also came back and held the ball up incredibly well.

What clicked it all into place? A Mourinho prep talk perhaps? We’ll never know but whatever did happen seriously changed the outcome of the game as United were terrible throughout the first-half.

Longest odds on Man Utd you should consider

Tag: Betting,Manchester United @ 3:40 pm

In football, like in many other areas, you need to invest if you want to be successful. The more you are willing to invest, the more likely it is to succeed. José Mourinho knows that full well. Despite the fact that the club’s transfer policy has been criticised, we hope that spending all that money will take the club where it belongs – at the very top of English and European football.

Antonie Griezmann opens up on Atletico Madrid future amid Man United interest

Antonie Griezmann opens up on Atletico Madrid future amid Man United interest


French striker Antoine Griezmann has pledged his allegiance to Atletico Madrid and Diego Simeone amid speculation surrounding a potential move to Manchester United next summer.

Griezmann’s decision to part ways with his agent, electing instead to represent himself, served as a possible sign of the 25-year-old’s desire to seek a move away from the Vicente Calderon.

It was also reported by French paper L’Equipe that it was “only a matter of time” before Griezmann comes to Old Trafford.

However the Frenchman, speaking to Spanish radio station Onda Cero, made it clear he is happy at Atletico, as long as Simeone remains at the club.

“I am very good at Atleti, with my team-mates, I see that we can achieve important things,” Griezmann said.

“With Simeone I am learning so much. Right now, I do not think about anything other than Atleti. The aim is to continue with Atleti and to see the new stadium.

“I was afraid of Simeone leaving this summer – I need to continue learning from him. I called him and he reassured me. I need to work with Simeone, I need to learn from him and Atleti needs it too.”

Griezmann’s future in Spain appears to hinge on how long Simeone – manager since 2011 – stays at the Vicente Calderon. Atletico’s sturdy, almost tribal approach to scalping results stems from the Argentine’s warrior-like persona, and one imagines that his departure will signal a quick decline in potency.

And despite Simeone’s reassuring words to fans and players concerned about his potential departure, speculation surrounding his future continues to loom, meaning that Griezmann – a tricky, effervescent presence at No.9 – could find himself wearing a United short at some point in the near future.

Manchester United star provides positive injury update ahead of Leicester clash

Pogba-Martial

Manchester United star Anthony Martial has provided a latest update on his recovery from his injury as the forward has confirmed that he has returned to training on Friday. The 20-year-old picked up an injury in the Red Devils’ 3-1 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road on 18 September.

The France international missed the 20-time English champions League Cup victory over Northampton Town during the midweek. Martial has already been ruled out for Leicester clash, but the player confirmed he has returned to training.

“Back to training today @ManUtd,” Martial tweeted.

Jose Mourinho’s side will face the Premier League champions at Old Trafford on 24 September. There were reports he would be fit to face Claudio Ranieri’s side after he earlier revealed he is “feeling much better.”

However, the Portuguese tactician has already confirmed the ex-AS Monaco man will not be included in the squad for the clash against the Foxes. In addition to this, the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager has also explained that Martial is recovering from contusion and not concusion as reported earlier.

“Martial is not available. He is out because of the contusion in the calf and ankle area. I think you know when that happened,” Mourinho said in his pre-match press conference, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

The pacey forward arrived at Old Trafford on the deadline day of the last summer transfer window. He impressed in his debut season and his form saw him make it to France squad for the Euro 2016, which they lost to Portugal in the final.

Martial has failed to replicate his last season’s form and is yet to get his name on the scoresheet in any of the competitions he has played under Mourinho.
