By Matthew Jones WHAT’S that old saying about buses. You wait all year for one and then…ahh you get where I’m going with this. What a week it was for Manchester United.

Forget the record appearances, the trophies, the medals – Giggs ‘gets’ United. Early on, Giggs knew, when he first burst onto the scene, that in order to have a successful […]

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 […]

#MoyesOut – but where now?

By Matthew Jones WELL, the #MoyesOut hash tags can now be changed to #MoyesGone ones. Mission accomplished United. Except, it isn’t really is it.

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 0-3 Liverpool

By Matthew Jones 1. Outfought, outthought, outclassed ANOTHER defeat at home. Another weak, toothless, unimaginative, abject performance from a team bereft of belief, confidence and unity.

Singing Section Strike A Bum Note

By Matthew Jones HAVING ‘Your support is f******g s**t’ sung at you by boisterous away fans, on top of the already abject spectacles Manchester United fans have had to witness at Old Trafford this season, is contributing to the toughest period I’ve experienced as a Red. While supporters cannot of course do too much about […]

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. There are also big issues at the back. As revealed today, Nemanja Vidic will definitely be leaving Old Trafford this summer, […]

Lest We Forget

By Matthew Jones TODAY marks a significant day in the history of Manchester United Football Club. 56 years ago today will be remembered as the darkest day in United’s history. 56 years ago today was the Munich air disaster. Out of the depths of tragedy though, something extraordinary arose. The spirit, mentality and style of […]

5 Things We Learned: Manchester United 1-0 Arsenal

By Matthew Jones 1. Van Persie’s celebration I GOT back to my car and upon tuning into 606 and TalkSport, one of the biggest talking points was should Robin van Persie have celebrated so animatedly against his former club. I travelled to the game with a Gooner supporting mate of mine and he had no […]
