Manchester United: Hernandez hailed and is Bender the one that we want?

Javier Hernandez is in a rich vein of goalscoring form and Manchester United are reaping the benefits. Hernandez’s pace and movement are always going to provide a challenge for defenders, but it also spreads the defence, giving more room in United’s attacking third. For the first time in sever...

Manchester United vs Arsenal: Why United will beat the Gunners

The Gunners visit to Old Trafford will be their first since United ran riot and smashed eight past them last August. With United now only one point of the top, they need to win to keep the pressure on Chelsea. Rooney has a great scoring record against Arsenal, who have a dismal record at the The...

Manchester United: How are the Red Devils doing compared to last season?

Seven games into the Premier League season is still early to be making judgements, but if compared to last seasons opening seven games, we can reflect on how the team is doing. Highlighting the fixtures and who United faced is taken into consideration, as is the goals against tally and the goals...

Manchester United: What Vidic’s injury absence means

Vidic was barely back before surgery on his left knee has left him sidelined for another two months. The defensive crisis United are in didn’t seem so bad when Vidic was on the field. The captain now joins Chris Smalling and Phil Jones on the injury list, leaving no experienced centre backs on the...

Manchester United v Newcastle: United's reserves to star in League Cup

Manchester United open the Capital One Cup with a tricky game at Old Trafford against Newcastle. Sir Alex would generally like to field a strong reserve side and he still will, just with a few more first team members perhaps. Facing a Premier League opponent rather than a team from the lower tie...

Manchester United: The Curious Career of Nani

Nani can be brilliant at times and excruciatingly frustrating at others. The Portuguese winger is clever and a dangerous presence on the wing but he’s also selfish and it’s painfully obvious when he is. With the direct Valencia on the right, who whips in accurate crosses and tracks back, Ashley ...

Manchester United: A bright defensive future

Manchester United had one of the best centre back pairings in the world a few years ago, with Ferdinand and Vidic anchoring the defence. In recent seasons though, injuries have forced Sir Alex to be creative with his defence at times. Fortunately, United have five promising young defenders rea...

Manchester United: The Return of Nemanja Vidic

When United won the league in previous years, Vidic and Rio Ferdinand have always been crucial to keeping the defence well organised. With Ferdinand’s age becoming a more pressing issue, Nemanja Vidic’s return is crucial. It was clear this past season how important Vincent Kompany was to Mancheste...

Manchester United: David De Gea Will Only Get Better

Spanish keeper David De Gea endured a rough first half of the season which culminated in him being benched by Sir Alex Ferguson. An unfortunate injury for Anders Lindegaard allowed De Gea back into the starting eleven and he hasn’t looked back. His stunning performance against Athletic Bilbao at O...

Manchester United: Sir Alex Must Get Robin Van Persie

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Manchester United have placed a bid to sign Robin Van Persie from Arsenal. There is no point in questioning whether or not this would be a good signing for United. It is. Period. Robin Van Persie is a stunning striker and has a deadly left foot. At 28, the Dutchm...

Manchester United: Would Lucas Moura be a good signing?

The 19-year-old Brazilian would certainly be a welcome addition to the Manchester United midfield in my eyes. He’s one of several emerging young stars from Brazil, along with Neymar, Ganso and new Chelsea signing Oscar. Already capped 15 times by his country and going to the London Olympics, Lucas...

Manchester United: Has the fear factor gone?

You only have to go back to the first leg of the semi-final in the Champions League against Schalke last year to understand what Manchester United can do before the kick off. The match was in Germany and Schalke should have used this opportunity to attack. Instead they sat back, afraid of what Uni...
