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.

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.

5 Things We Learned: Stoke City 2-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Juan Mata is not the solution The signing of Juan Mata is not going to magically fix our problems – I think most intelligent United fans know this.

5 Things We Learned: Bayer Leverkusen 0-5 Manchester United

By Shane Connaughton. 1. Manchester United’s best performance of the season This was by far United’s best performance of the season and given that it came against a team lying second in the Bundesliga behind Bayern Munich it makes it all the more impressive.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 1-0 Real Sociedad

By Shane Connaughton. 1. Shinji Kagawa Shinji Kagawa’s performance really stood out and it was great to see him get the full 90 minutes.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 1-1 Southampton

By Jason Freeman 1. Poor substitutions cost United The main talking point after the game has been the substitutions, baffling to say the least when they were made and even more so after the game had ended. The first sub to be made was Giggs for Nani left me confused, it made no sense unless [...]

5 Things We Learned: Real Madrid 1-1 Manchester United

By Chris Mortlock 1. Evans justified his place in the starting XI I, like many, expected Vidic to start alongside Ferdinand at the Bernabéu; his experience alone warranted a place in the staring XI – especially in a game of such magnitude.

5 Things We Learned: Fulham 0-1 Manchester United

By Matthew Jones 1. Roo good to be true Wayne Rooney is back, big time. With Robin van Persie largely taking all the credit and limelight this season, coupled with several infuriating and niggling injuries for the Scouser, Rooney’s come in for a lot more criticism than even he is used to.
