1a041512-cb29-4a55-8499-6b6931dba64a-620x425After their spending spree this summer, Manchester United have assembled so much attacking talent that the comparison with the Harlem Globetrotters has been almost impossible to escape.

United, however, could move a step closer to the famous American basketball outfit if plans to play lucrative overseas friendlies during the course of the season is to go ahead.

United heading in the right direction

Tag: Manchester United News @ 8:34 am

Manchester-United-Training-and-Press-ConferenceRobin Van Persie believes Manchester United are on the right track under Louis Van Gaal and they will soon step up a couple notches, once the injured players return and the squad is completely familiar with the new manager’s methods.

Despite having nine players sidelined, with Ander Herrera a doubt ahead of Sunday after having been withdrawn on Saturday, United bounced back from a shambolic 5-3 defeat at Leicester to win 2-1 against West Ham over the weekend, their second consecutive win at home and one Van Persie believes is a sign of more things to come.

Rooney’s apology

Tag: Manchester United News @ 9:24 am

Manchester-United-v-West-Ham-United-Premier-LeagueWayne Rooney has apologised for getting sent off against West Ham on Saturday, a red card which means he will now miss games against Everton, West Bromwich Albion and Chelsea, though he’ll be back in time for United’s first derby of the season, away to City on November 2.

Showing a remarkable lack of leadership, the United captain lashed out petulantly at Stewart Downing and was rightly sent off, though he has since admitted his was an error of judgment and accepted Lee Mason made the right choice by sending him off.

Rooney: “Van Gaal is incredible”

Tag: Manchester United News @ 3:38 pm

Manchester-United-Training-Session (1)Wayne Rooney has described Louis Van Gaal as “incredible” and has insisted Manchester United will get it right soon as they aim to bounce back from a shaky start to the season.

United have won only twice of their opening six Premier League games, losing at home against Swansea on the opening weekend of the season and relinquishing a 3-1 lead at Leicester last week, but Rooney, who was sent off against West Ham on Saturday, said that Van Gaal has generated a feel good factor in the dressing room and the players are right behind him.

No Rooney apology from LVG

Tag: Manchester United News @ 8:47 am

Wayne RooneyLouis Van Gaal said Wayne Rooney had been too “unfriendly” and refused to let his captain off the hook, after Rooney was sent off for petulantly kicking out at Stewart Downing during United’s 2-1 win against West Ham on Saturday.

Rooney’s red card left United nervously hanging on for the final half an hour, as they sought to avoid another collapse following a 5-3 defeat at Leicester and has casted doubt of the United captain’s leadership.

United’s £27m man keen to impress

Tag: Manchester United News @ 3:39 pm

Marouane-Fellaini-of-Manchester-United-in-actionMarouane Fellaini remains determined to prove what he’s capable of at Manchester United and the Belgian has insisted Louis Van Gaal never asked him to leave, despite the reports that circulated in the summer, according to which the former Everton man was on the verge of leaving the club.

The man who perhaps more than any other epitomises David Moyes’ beleaguered spell at United has vowed to win the critics over, as he returned to training following a month on the sideline because of an ankle injury.

United face injury crisis

Tag: Manchester United News @ 3:30 pm

Leicester-City-v-Manchester-United-Premier-League (2)Manchester United face a defensive crisis as Louis Van Gaal’s already thin defensive options  have been further stretched by Chris Smalling’s umpteenth injury.

Smalling suffered a thigh strain in training on Wednesday and is unlikely he’ll be fit to face West Ham on Saturday, leaving Van Gaal without a recognised centre-back, given Jonny Evans and Phil Jones are also sidelined, while Michael Carrick, who had been touted as a possible short-term solution in the role, is still two weeks away from return.

With Tyler Blackett suspended, Marcos Rojo could be given the nod at centre-back alongside Daley Blind with Luke Shaw making his official debut at left-back, though Van Gaal could also opt to temporarily return to a three-man defence if Smalling fails to recover.

United need to spend another £100m

Tag: Manchester United News @ 4:47 pm

Leicester vs Manchester UnitedManchester United might have spent £150m this summer, but Phil Neville believes they’ll need to spend almost as many if they’re to win the Premier League anytime soon.

Amid the cash they splashed on Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera, Daley Blind and Radamel Falcao, United also secured two defenders, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw. The former hasn’t impressed so far, while the latter is yet to make his official debut for United, with Louis Van Gaal’s already limited defensive options further depleted by an injury crisis.
