Our own identified targets from the World Cup so far

738-747286-01-02-20140618-193905_mediagallery-pageWhat a tournament this World Cup is turning out to be……and it’s only into its eighth day!

As with South Africa four years ago, the pre-tournament talk going into this years Brazilian World Cup was of stadium issues, crime and local disorder but, just like back in 2010, the concerns appear to have been over played (so far). There is however one huge difference between 2010 and 2014…..the quality of the football so far in Brazil has been unbelievable, unmissable and full of goals and top players stepping up to perform.

Which of these targets are really on United’s summer shopping list?

World Cup 2014 PlayersAs always, the summer transfer window involves a lot of speculation, and a large amount of conjecture concerning the potential transfer of players, and so far this summer has been no different with United seemingly being favourites to sign every player in the world.

Prior to the dismissal of David Moyes, United were linked with a series of players, namely; Marco Reus, Toni Kroos, Ezequial Garay, Cesc Fabregas and Luke Shaw. Since the appointment of Louis Van Gaal, the targets appear to have changed dramatically with only Luke Shaw seemingly interesting the new manager.

Jobless manager criticises United’s plan

MoyesDavid Moyes believes the days of long term planning at United are long gone.

That’s quite something to say by a manager who was given a six year contract despite never winning anything. A man who was given an entire season to improve the standard of football he dragged the club into playing, but never did. A man whose long term future would have been cemented purely by showing the club and its fans just a few seeds of hope in order to continue to receive their full backing. The signs never improved, neither did Moyes’ pathetic interview skills

In just a few short months, Moyes proved he was not up to the task of managing one of the biggest clubs in football despite being given one of the most faithful, long-term contracts ever handed out by any club.

Tearing you apart for 24 years: United’s greatest ever?

Tag: Manchester United @ 8:03 am

rp_1225243-25791294-640-360-200x200.jpgDestiny, like many other words, is a term often overused in football, but it’s difficult to dismiss it when it comes to Manchester United.

The 1999 Treble was clinched on what would have been Sir Matt Busby’s 90th birthday, while had George Best not departed this world, he would have enjoyed the celebrations for his 62th birthday as United lifted the European Cup in Moscow in 2008.

How apt then, that 12 months on from Sir Alex Ferguson’s last game in charge, United decided it was time to unveil the man tasked with the gargantuan job to restore the club in the upper echelon of English and, hopefully, European football.
