Are there positives to take from Manchester United's Bournemouth defeat?
09:01 Sunday 3rd November 2019

They’re back. After Manchester United lost at Dean Court to Bournemouth on a rainy, wind-whipped, South Coast Saturday afternoon, the Love United, Hate Glazers crowd returned en masse to disparage their club on social media. Never mind…

Were Norwich the perfect Chelsea tune-up for Manchester United?
08:01 Wednesday 30th October 2019

I am convinced that on some level, even if it was only subconscious, most of the Love United, Hate Glazers mob were rooting for Norwich City to run riot over the Red Devils at Carrow Road. The Canaries green and yellow kit recalls the old Newton…

12:01 Tuesday 29th October 2019

Why chance creation is going to cost Manchester United dearly
19:00 Friday 25th October 2019

Ole's true test as Manchester United manager comes after Liverpool success
12:01 Thursday 24th October 2019

Have fans sucked the magic out of Manchester United?
19:00 Wednesday 23rd October 2019

I’ve heard all the talk about the power, grace and beauty of a mother’s love. She’ll nurture you, guide you, defend you, stand by you, love you unconditionally, do anything for you. Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman’s…

Why shouldn't Manchester United sack Solskjaer?
09:01 Friday 11th October 2019

17:01 Monday 30th September 2019

Should Manchester United start their Rojo Diablo?
09:01 Friday 27th September 2019

Faust is the ambitious German bloke who made a deal with the Devil. As a great many Germans reside in Argentina, it isn’t surprising that a certain Manchester United defender’s full name is Faustino Marcos Alberto Rojo. Considering…

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…
