By Jason Freeman 1) Tactical change pays off… again! There has been a lot of debate over why Van Gaal continues to use a 3-5-2, Van Gaal has given a few explanations as to why he’s sticking with it. One of those is that it provides a better balance but I’m not sure if that […]

5 Things We Learned: Stoke City 1-1 Manchester United

By David Gee (@DavidGee26) It was a typical away game at the Britannia; wet, windy and physical. There was not a high calibre of football on display but these games are what the Premier League is all about.

5 Things We Learned: Aston Villa 1-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1) Happy hunting ground So the six game winning streak went out the window with Saturday’s 1-1 draw, but it’s now seven games unbeaten for Louis van Gaal’s red and white army.

Aye, Aye Captain

By Matthew Jones MANCHESTER United finally look like we have, in Louis van Gaal, a captain capable of steering the club through the troubled waters of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement that hit us like an iceberg striking the Titanic.

End Of An Era, But It’s Time To Move On

By Matthew Jones RIO Ferdinand has been a truly wonderful servant for Manchester United. It’s now time to press ahead with finding his replacement. They say there’s no room for sentimentalism in football. I totally disagree, but while we pen the epilogue to Ferdinand’s glorious 12 years as a Manchester United footballer, the need for […]

5 Things We Learned: Everton 2–0 Manchester United

By David Gee. (@DavidGee26) Another all-to-frequent afternoon of disappointment that entailed an unwelcome microcosm of United’s season. Sustained periods of meaningless, un-penetrative possession were interrupted by incisive, high tempo counter-attacks from the home side who ran out fairly comfortable victors in the end. In reality, it was two poor errors from Phil Jones that cost […]

A ‘Vida’ Derci

By David Gee. (@DavidGee26) Nemanja Vidic arrived at Manchester United from Spartak Moscow in January 2006 in the same transfer window as a man he would go on to play the majority of his games in a red shirt alongside in Patrice Evra. Quite possibly one of the Red Devils’ greatest ever signings, the central […]

Case For The Defence

By Matthew Jones MIDFIELD is the stick most often used to beat Manchester United with, but it’s become clear this season that our troubles are not simply confined to the middle of the park.
