  1. Fantastic article and great I totally agree barckley now could be the next big thing Chelsea have singed players and made them big I look forward seeing Barkleys career go from strength to strength.
  2. Manchester United fans such as myself are not used to seeing our beloved Red Devils being second, or indeed third best, or worse. However, since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, it has been that way. In recent years, United have missed several opportunities to play Champions League football, while the Premier League title has evaded Old Trafford, with the mighty Chelsea, the underdogs Leicester City and even the noisy neighbours Manchester City lifting the trophy. But is this about to change with Jose Mourinho preparing to start his second year at the helm? A Manchester Unite
  3. Jose Mario dos Santos Mourinho Felix, GOIH, or Jose Mourinho as he is known to the footballing world, comes with a reputation that, in my opinion, he loves. The arguments with the media, the touchline antics... it goes on like this and by doing all of this he achieved the name The Special One. I would like to ask - why does this nickname persist? As a Manchester United fan, I want to know. Yes, he has brought success and silverware to clubs, but with the majority of teams he has managed, he has spent big, and his tenures have been brief - no longer than three years at a single c
  4. After months of speculation Bastian Schweinsteiger has become the fourth of Louis van Gaal's high-profile signings to leave Old Trafford under current boss Jose Mourinho, accepting a move to Chicago Fire. Yet again the Portuguese manager has let another highly-rated player, this time one with true pedigree, leave the club after failing to meet his high standards. Schweinsteiger joins Angel di Maria, Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay, who all arrived with high price tags, in becoming ex-United players. This shouldn’t come as a shock as Schweinsteiger has been frozen out the
  5. Ryan Giggs is a man who needs no introduction – his accolades and achievements speak for themselves. Put simply, he is the most decorated player in football history. During his time at Manchester United, he won 13 Premier League winner's medals, four FA Cup winner's medals, three League Cup winner's medals, two UEFA Champions League winner's medals, a FIFA Club World Cup winners medal, an Intercontinental Cup winner's medal, a UEFA Super Cup winner's medal and nine FA Community Shield winner's medals. Earlier this month, however, the Welshman’s 29-year association with the Red Devils
  6. Legendary United States goalkeeper Tim Howard is back on the other side of the pond following his successful spell in England, making his much-anticipated Colorado Rapids debut on Monday in his return to the MLS and keeping a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw against the Portland Timbers. The 37-year-old joined the Timbers this summer after wrapping up his 10th season with Everton. “I will remain an Evertonian for life”, an emotional Howard said as he left Goodison Park to return to America. Howard has had what you can call a career to be proud of. Born in North Brunswick, New Jersey, he got
  7. Unless you’re a staunch Manchester United fan who keeps an eye out on the academy and reserves, you probably wouldn’t have heard of Marcus Rashford’s name this time last year. Now, you’d have to have been living under a rock not to know who he is. The Red Devils academy graduate, Manchester born-and-bred, has been given a new contract which will keep him at Old Trafford until 2020 on a rumoured £20,000-a-week deal. Rashford’s rise has been nothing short of sensational, not so much knocking at the door as smashing through it. Born in Wythenshawe, Rashford began playing football f
  8. One look at Adebayo Akinfenwa, also known as The Beast and The World’s Strongest Footballer, is enough to strike fear into any opponent. Boasting over 16 stone in his 5’11” frame, he is one of the heaviest and bulkiest footballers in history. Despite his physique making him a fan favourite, he has often been overlooked by football clubs for being too bulky, but today he proved the doubters wrong by making sure of AFC Wimbledon’s victory in their League Two playoff final against Plymouth Argyle. Unfortunately, Akinfenwa won’t be playing for the Dons in League One, the first time they
  9. Monday 23rd May 2016 was the day that many Manchester United fans had been looking forward to for a long time. Louis van Gaal, the illustrious, heralded Dutch manager brought in to try and bring prestige back to the Red Devils after the false dawn of David Moyes, was gone. Just 48 hours after guiding United to their 12th FA Cup victory over Crystal Palace at Wembley with a 2-1 extra time win, Van Gaal had been sacked by the club two years into his three-year contract. The signs had been there. He had guided United to a disappointing fifth-placed finish in the Premier League in a seas
  10. It’s been three years since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, the man who built on Matt Busby’s legacy and made Manchester United the biggest club in the world. Since then they have placed their trust in David Moyes - a disastrous tenure that lasted less than a season. Now Ed Woodward has picked Louis van Gaal to take the Red Devils back to the summit of English and world football. Since Van Gaal’s appointment nearly two seasons ago, the Dutchman has rid the Manchester United changing room of players that Sir Alex put his trust and help built Old Trafford and brought in own d
