United’s saviour: Tom Cleverley

454078856No, no he’s not. That was a lie. Though some might be cynical enough to believe that the headline was used as a crude ploy to draw in readers they will be categorically and absolutely correct.

Tom Cleverley is not the saviour of Manchester United, Tom Cleverley was the kid that promised much and delivered almost nothing.

Revolution the only solution at United

Tag: Manchester United,Opinion Piece @ 9:17 am

9d95a711-b618-4707-a19c-9859617bc117As the dust finally begins to settle on the schizophrenic hyperbole that is transfer deadline day, Manchester United appear to be a complete different proposition to what they were 10 days ago, let alone when compared to the team Louis Van Gaal took charge of in July.

If Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw were a promising first date back in June, Marcos Rojo the long overdue call for a second meeting and Angel Di Maria the – extremely expensive – first dinner out and Daley Blind the movie date that followed the meal, then the arrival of Radamel Falcao was undoubtedly the moment in which the girl United had not even dared to look at for fear of rejection invited the club back to her place.

Ed Woodward: The Wolf of Busby Way  

"I do what I want"-Ed WoodwardAfter following United’s transfer business this summer, many fans might be wondering whether Edward Woodward is not the straight and narrow, suit wearing calculated CEO many thought, but actually United’s very own Jordan Belfort.

“A world-class midfielder and a world-class centre back, that’s all I need!”, Louis Van Gaal begged as Ed finished his line of cocaine using Danny Welbeck’s transfer request. For all of six seconds Ed was committed to making sensible decisions and acting on what the club really needed, but then the coke kicked in.

What’s the Mata Juan?

Juan MataAt the turn of the year, when the news broke that Manchester United were on the verge of making a club record signing, excitement was tantamount. Juan Mata had spent his first few years in the Premier League dazzling crowds with his typical Spanish style of classy, intricate football.

The perfect number ten.

However, in the short time that elapsed between him being named Chelsea’s Player of the Year and Jose Mourinho taking the reigns once again at Stamford Bridge, Mata very quickly fell out of favour.

Hernandez set for loan

United’s Mexican striker, Chicharito, has agreed to join Real Madrid on a season-long loan.

With his 1st team chances limited under Van Gaal a move to a club in the Champions League is a fantastic opportunity for ‘the little pea’, hopefully he’ll celebrate his trip to Anfield later this year with a hat-trick!

Who’ll be next to leave?

Process, Philosophy, Humiliation.

There’s not really any other word to describe both the performance and the feelings that ensued following last night’s abomination. It initially brought back memories of a horrendous evening at Upton Park in the Carling Cup back in 2010 when we collapsed 4-0 that evening during a wretched display.

However, this was so much worse. So bad, it was practically beyond belief. We have been utterly humiliated by a club in the third tier of English football. It wasn’t even a contest.

United on the verge of another new signing

imageNews travels fast nowadays, as do images of players arriving at airports and hotels. Tonight it seems Angel Di Maria is in town to become the latest new signing unveiled by Manchester United.

Strong, but unconfirmed reports, suggest Di Maria is having his United medical today with an announcement from the club planned for later this evening or first thing in the morning pending its outcome.

At an estimated £65m, Di Maria’s signing takes United’s summer spending spree beyond an eye-watering £130m yet, unbelievably, they STILL have NOT strengthened the most notably weak areas of the first eleven.
