This season was always going to be very difficult for United, as Sir Alex Ferguson’s team were in desperate need of rebuilding even if Ronaldo hadn’t left for Real and nobody was surprised to see the team struggle in the first part of the season. Nevertheless, the last few weeks have shown this team still have something to offer and maybe this season will turn into a success after all.
The first part of the season was very difficult for United as the side needed a new system without Ronaldo, while the numerous injuries to the playing staff certainly didn’t help. The team did struggle to catch Chelsea at the top but they also didn’t allow the Blues to run away and as a result, we still have the chance to defend the Premiership title. Continue reading
When the Glazers arrived at Old Trafford, Manchester United were one of the richest and most successful football clubs in the world but the situation has changed considerably over the last few years. United are still one of the richest clubs in the world if we disregard the fact that they owe more than £700 million at the moment. It is now clear that the fans were right when they saw the Glazers as the family that could ruin what so many generations have built from scratch but even when the Americans leave, there will remain a lot of problems that need to be sorted out.

After losing at home to Besiktas, United second string side had something to prove when they met almost full strength Tottenham in the Carling Cup quarter-finals and they did surprisingly well, comprehensively beating Spurs to make it to the semis. It was an unlikely hero Darron Gibson who stole the show with two perfectly executed goals and the logical question now is, will the Irishman ever become more than a fringe player at Old Trafford? Continue reading
Manchester United squad is in need of a major overhaul but replacing Edwin van der Saar is the top priority at the moment. The 39-year-old keeper is very close to hanging up his boots, while both Ben Foster and Tomasz Kuszczak don’t seem to have the required quality to replace the Dutchman in the long run. They have both been given a chance on more than one occasion and Ferguson is aware neither of them is good enough. United have been linked with numerous keepers over the last few months and I will try to lay down the law on each and every one of them. Continue reading
This season is starting to take the wrong turn for United after they lost to both Liverpool and Chelsea but I cannot say I expected them to do much better. This team have reached its peak last season and they are in desperate need of rebuilding. Antonio Valencia is the only notable player to have arrived last summer and he is already showing signs of promise but more need to follow. This side have a couple of missing links and the only way to save this season is by significantly reinforcing the squad in January. Not that I believe Fergie will do that but this is what United need at the moment. Continue reading
Manchester United are trailing Chelsea by five points after the defeat to Blues at Stamford Bridge and things are not looking good for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side. Nani seems to have finished his career at Old Trafford (if he ever had one) after daring to criticize Fergie, while the squad look in desperate need of rebuilding. This can by done by some extent in January, although don’t expect the gaffer to rush into any new deals. Continue reading
Sad day for United…It is probably not the best day to start the blog. Fergie and the lads wanted a win, and it could be seen from the first minute. Unfortunately, was had not been lucky enough to score early goal and then conceded 2. Rooney was missed heavily. Even more, we missed classic striker and even I respect Sir Alex for all he gave to us in the last 20 and so years, I have to say that it is big mistake to enter the season without classis 9. Everyone is playing catanaccio against us, and without serious header in the penalty box it is too hard to break the lock.
We did not see Welbeck today, but I guess there will a chance for that. Hopefully, Arsenal will slip tomorrow as I would not like to see them 5 points above.
