Talking about recent reports linking David De Gea away from Manchester United to Real Madrid.
sh football has returned and it’s been a great set of matches. From a neutral standpoint, the match between Everton and Manchester United was an even contest exemplifying the traits the EPL is associated with (grit and determination). Taking a closer look, United fans were quite concerned and seemingly, most of it stemmed from issues we have witnessed in the past which crept up on us once again. Read the full story
There was an explosion of joy at the final whistle at the Darwen End of Ewood Park. Manchester United fans have a reason to celebrate as they came away from Ewood Park with 3 points and in that process, extended their lead at the to
p of the Barclays Premier League to 5 points over nearest rival, Manchester City. The fact that the rival is City made the celebrations sweeter but the a word of caution, the league is not over yet so keep the celebrations in check.
Ewood Park is a tough place for United to go to. In our last 10 matches there, we have only won twice. Blackburn Rovers had also stunned us on New Year’s Eve with a 3-2 win at Old Trafford. The visitors were also in a good run which was halted last week by a Fabrice Muamba-inspired Bolton Wanderers. The hosts were fighting to stay up in the Premier League so the points mattered to them as much as it mattered to the Red Devils. Pre-kick off, anyone with a United inclination would be worried about the outcome of this match considering the record we have had at Ewood Park in recent past and because of the shock result against them this season which spoiled many New Year parties of United followers mine included.

One game less, eight games to go, three points clear on top of the English Premier League, on a run of 9 wins in the last 10 league matches; a good run of form. This is made more impressive by the fact that during this run, Manchester United have faced their toughest challengers and closest rivals in terms of history or league position; Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs. If the Red Devils maintain this form for the remainder of the season which includes a very short trip to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City, we would be celebrating another title triumph come 13th of May 2012 away in the Stadium of Light against Sunderland. Added to the form of the team would be the fact that United’s players have the experience of seeing out a title run-in and emerging victorious. Everything seems to be going well and according to plan. Nothing to worry about? You would be wrong to think as such. Read the full story
In his pre-match press conference, Sir Alex Ferguson called for his players to wake up in Europe at Old Trafford. His comments weren’t heeded as we slumped to yet another defeat at home in Europe. That’s 1 win in 5 home European ties now. Manchester United were well and truly beaten by Athletic Club Bilbao and the score-line is flattering to the Red Devils as they were convincingly played off the park by the Spanish team. There would have been no injustice at all if the Red Devils were beaten by more than a 1 goal margin. Read the full story
We witnessed a weird game last night. Manchester United didn’t play well at all but ended with a score-line that we barely deserved and one that didn’t quite tell the true story of the match. We have been here before; if you are trying to recall when, let me remind you. It was in the early months of the season when we entertained another London club, Chelsea at Old Trafford. That match was made weirder by the incredible miss of our nemesis, Fernando Torres. Last night at White Hart Lane, our good record against Tottenham Hotspurs was upheld and Spurs would be left wondering what more do they need to do to beat us. A visit to a witch doctor might help Spurs but I don’t encourage it at all. Read the full story
