Why FA Cup success should by Van Gaal’s swansong

Manchester United’s last minute winner against Everton on Saturday gave fans something to smile about in a season of almost systematic lows, in which highs have been very few and far between. After the dull, mind-numbingly boring football served throughout the campaign, United played with purpose and desire, snatching a last-minute goal to spark the […]

Manchester is my heaven

Learn to play poker from Sir Alex Ferguson

Football is arguably the most popular sport in the world, and has evolved to become the most popular sport to bet on. Played in virtually every country, no other competition inflames the passions and spirits of both fans and players to such a degree. According to statistics portal Statista, the European market alone is valued […]


United’s situation is far from unacceptable

Words are often over-used. On the weekend, for instance, I overheard an announcer describing the  reaction to a long putt made at the Masters as the crowd “going wild.” Certainly they applauded more than politely, and cheered in the bargain, but that is hardly going wild. Golf has easily the most timid crowds in sport. In tennis, […]


Manchester United MUST get it right this summer

Manchester United have been linked with Neymar, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo in the past and undoubtedly will be again this summer. So many of the previous transfer windows under both David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal have been filled with speculation of United going for players they, in reality, had no hope of getting. […]

This week, however, there have been reports of Shaw training with the first team, leading to many United fans hoping his return can help improve the team’s online sportsbook […]

Ronaldo vs Pique

Gerard Pique compares Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi

Former Manchester United defender Gerard Pique is one of few footballers to have played with both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, so when Rio Ferdinand got the opportunity to interview the Spain international he forced a comparison of the world’s two best players. The leading quote from this interview was “Messi is not human whilst Cristiano is the […]


Who is Andrea Berta of Atletico Madrid?

If Jose Mourinho gets the Manchester United job, which we think he will, it is believed that the former Chelsea manager will want Atletico Madrid’s Andrea Berta to join him at Old Trafford. Ed Woodward’s job is not as secure as he thinks and Mourinho knows how important it is having someone trustworthy in a position dependent […]


We need to talk about Morgan Schneiderlin

When Louis Van Gaal bemoaned his embryonic Manchester United’s lack of balance after achieving the bare minimum expectation of a return to Champions League football in his first season, many a fan would doubtless have been hailing the signing of arguably one of the in-form Premier League central midfielders, an established one at that, then […]
