Bayer Leverkusen v Manchester United – Tactical Screenshots


Follow Eddie on Twitter

Manchester United’s 5-0 demolition job of Bayer Leverkusen was exhilarating and unexpected.  After dropping points to Cardiff City last weekend and Leverkusen’s home record in the BayArena, United’s chances of a crucial win looked improbable. Moyes’ United took advantage of Bayer’s naive approach as they secured qualification into the knockout stages.

7 Things We Learned from Manchester United v Bayer Leverkusen


Follow Eddie on Twitter

Here are some points from yesterday’s match. Feel free to share your own in the comments!!

  • Rooney is on fire!
    • Wow! Where has this Wayne Rooney been? A glittering performance where he was assured on the ball, peeling out to wide areas, he was actually taking on his man and providing beautifully weighted passes to his teammates.  Although it wasn’t a world class performance from someone of Wayne’s standards, it was an excellent one.  Justifies the club’s stance on not letting him go to Chelsea and it appears Moyes is working his magic on him. He’s now a member of the 200 goal club at United alongside Bobby Charlton, Jack Rowley and Denis Law.  Whether or not he’s happy here isn’t important. As long as he puts in performances like tonight, there’s little reason to complain. Read the full story

Greatest United XI, Busby Babes and The Terminator


 

Goalkeepers and Defenders                                                 

 

So, another review is here, the good people at PR Genie have decided that more time and devotion shall be spent on my couch as I trawl through some obvious, some surprising,and some downright ridiculous candidates for the best Manchester United XI. In stark comparison to the otherwise impressive Rooney Goal Machine, the opening titles and graphics have a slight air of class about them, less Europa League, more Champions League perhaps. Loud classical music blares triumphantly with the overblown grandiosity of a late ‘90s SKY Sports advert. The basic format is from a competition invented by the club’s website in 2011 where fans vote on the best players for each position, based on what I’m guessing is a rigid 4-4-2 formation.

No turkeys in this Christmas cracker…..


Welcome to Liam “Wrestlemania” Brown’s Barry Norman/Claudia Winkleman impersonation.  Finally, I have been asked to join the likes of Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert and become a film critic.  Ok, maybe not, but we were kindly handed a copy of Rooney Goal Machine for our consideration, so after popping it on  during a lazy Sunday Evening, I’ll tell you what I thought if you should lend me your ears…

Red Dead Podcast “Number 8″ – Spanking Arsenal, Hargo’s “Betrayal” and a Silly Liverpool Fan


Welcome to the eigth episode of the Red Dead Podcast, the stupendous Manchester United podcast for Truly Reds, brought to you as always by Tom “Darren Fletcher” Addison and Liam “Wrestlemania” Brown.

This week we analyse United’s cracking performance against l’Arse and bask in the (Red Dead) redemption of our favourite Spanish ‘keeper. We also take a lot at the best of the football from around Europe and, perhaps unfairly, tear into Scottish football a little bit.

We also offer our view on the surprising transfer of Owen Hargreaves to Manchester City, and also rip to shreads an article written by a Liverpool fan, comparing the current United squad with the current Scouse one.

Comments, feedback and questions are greatly appreciated, you can contact us on reddeadpodcast@hotmail.co.uk 

Remember, you can also follow us, and Truly Reds, on Twitter: @TrulyReds @TomRDPodcast and @LiamRDPodcast

Due to the international break we won’t be podcasting for another couple of weeks, but don’t worry! I’m sure we’ll have plenty to discuss for next time, including what Liam’s favourite soup is and how much Tom weighs.
