Should Manchester United part ways with Jesse Lingard?
12:00 Thursday 5th March 2020

The Premier League continues with all the thrills, disappointments and excitement. Liverpool set the pace with a massive 22-point advantage over Manchester City. Unless you're expecting too much from Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, Manchester United…

Sympathy for Andreas Pereira
12:01 Monday 3rd February 2020

Manchester United fans question Paul Pogba’s commitment to the club. They abhor Anthony Martial’s work rate or the alleged lack thereof. Dedication and graft are two traits they demand from any player who pulls on the red strip…

Premier League
Surprise, surprise: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not one-dimensional
19:01 Thursday 30th January 2020

A significant bloc among Manchester United supporters think very little of their manager. To them, he is inexperienced and tactically naïve in the dugout and a weak-minded sycophant behind the microphone. In part, their low opinion regarding…

Furore over Solskjaer's Alexis comment MUFC ado about nothing
19:01 Wednesday 29th January 2020

If you count the 1980 Drybrough Cup, an eight-team competition held six times in the 1970s between the four highest-scoring clubs in the Scottish first and second divisions, Sir Alex Ferguson won one more trophy [40] as a manager than William…

Fa Cup
Like Manchester United supporters, Harry Maguire unimpressed with Tranmere victory
17:01 Monday 27th January 2020

If I wasn’t streaming the FA Cup match from Prenton Park in high definition on a personal computer, I might have believed it was the 1970s or 80s. The pitch was that horrible. On a bright, sunny afternoon, alternate furrows of grass and…

Premier League
Searching for Michael Carrick
09:00 Wednesday 22nd January 2020

A Geordie, a Norwegian, an Irishman and a fat, bald Lancastrian regularly attend Premier League matches as a group. They chat together, analysing each match as it progresses. When their emotions get the best of them, the Norwegian, Irishman…

How does the Raiola hire affect Lingard's United future?
12:01 Sunday 12th January 2020

January is an extremely tricky time. Transfer-wise, it's rare that you get what you want. Clubs who look to reinforce themselves are often met with firm no's from other sides who're keen to keep ahold of their stars. Players'…

How the Longstaff brothers reinstalled vigour and belief at Newcastle United
12:01 Tuesday 29th October 2019

Unless you’re the biblical Abel, you’d rather have your brother watching your back at work than someone else. Unfortunately, not many enjoy the privilege, particularly in the Premier League. Sean Longstaff is among the…

Premier League
Should Solskjaer call time on Lingard's Manchester United career?
08:02 Wednesday 25th September 2019

You see it in youth leagues around the world, no matter the sport. The coach’s son plays. His talent level doesn’t enter the conversation. It isn’t limited to youth leagues either. Sir Alex Ferguson kept son Darren in his…

Premier League
Two solutions for Manchester United's right wing?
17:00 Saturday 21st September 2019

Ask yourself why Sir Alex Ferguson signed Robin van Persie. It wasn’t to stick it to Arsene Wenger. That was a bonus. No, he needed someone who could provide balance in the Manchester United attack. Always devastating down the left flank…

Does Dybala to Manchester United make sense?
09:00 Saturday 3rd August 2019

Kings fall. That doesn't change the fact they were once powerful rulers who controlled multitudes, forcing them to obey their will. When a usurper steps into the power vacuum, the former king isn't going to accept a lesser…

Premier League preview: Is Manchester United in disarray or just disrespected?
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…

Is Lionel Messi the last one-club man?
15:00 Thursday 2nd August 2018

They don’t call it news for no reason. When things stay the same, people become bored. Something different, something new, must happen to keep people engaged. In real life, capitalism and democracy help that along. Everyone wants the…
