The moment Red Nev KNEW his time was up


The end came for me on New Year’s Day, 2011 – and it came on a toilet at The Hawthorns. It wasn’t the way I’d have chosen to finish, but I knew for certain that this was my last game. After 18 years at Manchester United, after 602 first-team appearances, I was in the middle of playing for my team for the last time. And I couldn’t wait for it to be over.

Cantona – ‘Being at United is like a drug habit’


Eric Cantona has likened leaving Manchester United to ‘quitting’ a heroin habit. The Frenchman said he had rarely returned to Old Trafford because he found it so hard to leave in the first place.

Uniteds evolution trumps rivals revolution


Trawling through the web in order to find a real gem amongst the many imitation baubles is a painstaking task UNTIL something stands out which makes it all worthwhile.

Can Buffon be part of Gazza's testimonial deal?


Gary Neville’s 18 year Old Trafford career will be honoured when Manchester United tackle Italian giants Juventus in a testimonial on Tuesday, May 24. I don’t want to seem as if I’m counting my chickens but the European Champions League Final at Wembley is scheduled for May 28, just four days later. Tuesday May 31 would have seemed to be a far more appropriate date for the testimonial. What a wonderful way it will be to celebrate IF United can manage to lift Big Ears. Juve’s world cup winning keeper Gigi Buffon has long been touted as a possible replacement for the retiring Edwin van der Sar in summer which raises speculation that the choice of Juventus may be part of an overall deal.
