Premier League
Could Mourinho ever play against type?
08:00 Tuesday 9th October 2018

This is an exercise in futility. When Jose Mourinho reviews the final 20 minutes from the Newcastle match, he won’t think maybe, just maybe, Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are onto something and he has the talent in-house to experiment…

Premier League
5 Manchester United players who must up their game
09:00 Monday 1st October 2018

Things aren't well at Manchester United. The Red Devils cling to a top half place in the Premier League, already nine points behind the leaders. The frustrating cycle of inconsistency continues. The squad loses points at regular intervals.…

Expect worse from Pogba, Mourinho and Manchester United: Unless...
08:00 Monday 1st October 2018

After losing 3-1 to West Ham United on Saturday, Manchester United have had their joint-worst start to a season since Sir Alex Ferguson faced the threat of the sack back in 1989-90. Negative events both on and off the pitch have overshadowed…

Is Mourinho finished at Manchester United?
12:00 Friday 28th September 2018

With Manchester United relinquishing further points against Wolves last weekend, crashing out of the League Cup on penalties to Derby County and a dust-up with Paul Pogba during training caught by Sky cameras, questions resurfaced regarding…

The Alexis Sanchez conundrum at Manchester United
09:00 Tuesday 25th September 2018

Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were both expected to kick on after their swap deal between Arsenal and Manchester United last January. Problem: Nine months later, that remains the expectation. Mkhitaryan's struggling to find minutes…

Champions League
Mourinho v Martial? Peace in our time?
09:00 Saturday 22nd September 2018

Logic and emotion work on the same principle. Whether rational or not, one reacts to the facts at hand. When those facts change, so does one’s reaction. Football fans tend to take the emotional route. They latch onto the facts which best…

Champions League
Depay still walking on Memphis
17:00 Friday 21st September 2018

Upon his return to England’s North West, Memphis Depay attempted to say all the right things. In doing so, he came off a bit like Christian Bale and Liam Neeson in Batman Begins. You know, as if he still doesn’t pay attention to…

Premier League
Jose Mourinho, the fans' manager
08:00 Wednesday 29th August 2018

Goals win games; defence wins titles. It’s a mantra held high as the ultimate truth in all team sports. Goals might be changed to touchdowns or hitting, defence to pitching. Nevertheless, the best teams know how to stop their opponent’s…

Living hand to mouth with Mourinho
08:00 Thursday 16th August 2018

Two things make my life interesting these days. First, I’m a Manchester United fan. Second, I don’t like Jose Mourinho. I imagine the conflicting emotions are a bit like your mother remarrying. No can replace your dad. Everything…

09:00 Thursday 9th August 2018

Manchester United Football Club achieved a second-placed finish in the 2017/18 campaign; their highest position post-Sir Alex Ferguson. That said, Jose Mourinho's Red Devils eventually finished some nineteen-points off the pace. That gap…

Has Jose Mourinho caught Arsense Wenger's lost boy syndrome?
15:00 Monday 30th July 2018

JM Barrie, the Victorian-era Scottish writer who gave us Peter Pan, was a cricket fan. Even so, his Neverland dynamic is not unlike a football club. Captain Hook is the tough, grizzled manager too likely to argue about added time. Naturally,…

Alexis Sanchez about to prove Manchester United were right to let Anthony Martial leave?
17:00 Sunday 29th July 2018

Back in January, Manchester United shocked the footballing world by prising Alexis Sanchez away from Arsenal; snatching the Chilean's signature right from under Manchester City's noses. I think it's fair to say that, during his…

Are Manchester United in crisis?
15:00 Sunday 29th July 2018

If you didn’t bring trunks, you’re just going to have to strip all the way down before getting in the hot tub. When you’re ready, I’ll set the dial to exactly one year ago. Keep your hands and feet inside the tub at…

Premier League
Which team will Anthony Martial be playing for next season?
08:00 Friday 22nd June 2018

Anthony Martial has failed to live up to the hype that he himself created in 2015. The French forward became the most expensive teenager ever when he joined Manchester United and was set to be the next big thing. But, like Manchester United's…

Premier League
Manchester United's Anthony Martial has the good sense to let his agent do the talking
12:00 Tuesday 19th June 2018

Every football talent worth his salt has a good agent. Most hire one to whom they can relate. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho employs Jorge Mendes, who is to football players and managers what Bob Baffert is to Kentucky Derby and Triple…
