Moyes: “No plans to rest Wayne”

Tag: Manchester United @ 10:28 am

Rooney v Leverkusen.Wayne Rooney produced another match winning performance in the 0-5 hammering at BayArena setting up 4 of 5 goals scored by Manchester United. Without a doubt, he’s been the standout performer this season so far with 8 goals and 15 assists in 17 games. That tells you he’s directly/indirectly involved in 23 of Manchester United’s goals this season so far. That number of assists is more than Ozil (Assist-king), Oscar, Hazard and Eriksen COMBINED.

Were Utd Right To Let Ravel Morrison Go?

Tag: FM Sponsor,Manchester United @ 10:45 pm

Ravel Morrison West HamIf there’s one thing you never do, it’s question Fergie. But in the wake of Ravel Morrison’s impressive start to the season, netting a wonder goal in West Ham’s 3-0 triumph against Tottenham, it does make you wonder if it was the right call.

Whilst United have been crying out for midfielders, Morrison has, finally, been doing all his talking on the pitch -with two goals in four starts for the Hammers- warranting a call up from Gareth Southgate to the England Under-21’s where he again impressed.

Fabio bids farewell?

Fabio on his instagram accountFourth round. Four-goal victory. It all sounds right all of a sudden. Three wins on the bounce and unbeaten in the last six in all competitions. Twitter has surprisingly gone quiet and the infamous #MoyesOut mania is fading away. Good signs. All of this means we have a great many things to worry about in the next few weeks. Keep the ball rolling. 

I’ve always felt we are the most fortunate bunch of all sets of fans. The success, the drama, the quality and sheer passion – we have seen it all in the Fergie era. And I have no doubt we will continue to do so, with our new boss too. Passion. Manchester United has had so many players insanely proud of wearing the shirt, giving it all game in game out for the crest at the front. One such player from that famous clan is the Manchester-born Gary Neville. G-Nev always wore his heart on his sleeve whenever he stepped onto the pitch and one could never forget his celebrations in front of the Kop after John O’Shea’s last-minute winner at Anfield.

Jonny Evans and his rise to prominence

Tag: Manchester United @ 12:47 pm

EvansA clean sheet in Europe after ages. Jonny Evans and Phil Jones again showed the fans that they are the future of this great football club. More noticeably, the former is a Manchester United academy product – one that we can gloat about. Every club has a player that surpasses or finally lives up to the expectations. In Jonny Evans, Manchester United have the former. A Manchester United youth graduate who has everything that a defender requires – two good feet, good awareness, command and who’s a good reader of the game.

Title rivals go head-to-head

Tag: Manchester United,Match Preview @ 5:21 pm

Robin-van-Persie-Manchester-United-Manchester_2872334Four games in, and United and City are level at 7 points. Predictions for City this season are sky high with conventional wisdom that Pellegrini will be able to steady the club, and increased spending expected to turn into points.

This is a team many expect to win the title or come very close. City have had a fairly soft start when compared to United, and have looked unconvincing without Kompany. An embarrassing loss to Cardiff and a nervy draw against Stoke show a City side with serious flaws.

Despite fear of a disastrous start of Moyes’ United tenure with such a difficult schedule to begin, United are only 3 points back of the top spot and level with City. Despite a disappointing loss to Liverpool, and a cagey draw against Chelsea, a big win over Swansea, and a very comfortable win over Chrystal Palace have United looking solid if not spectacular.

Striking partnership pleases team-mates

wayne rooneyAhead of Sunday’s first derby of the season at the Etihad, Michael Carrick and David De Gea have expressed their belief that Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie are on course to develop into a fearsome partnership.

Van Persie and Rooney were both on target against Crystal Palace on Saturday and they delivered again on Tuesday, as United put four past Bayer Leverkusen in their opening Champions League match of the season.
