A Review of Manchester United transfer targets: Midfielders


The midfield has been an area I have always expressed concerns over, and games we struggle in are always characterized by our inability to dominate in midfield. We may have the likes of Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher, Anderson, Scholes and Gibson in the team, but the lack of consistency has been a cause of concern.

Balotelli: How long will Mancini protect him?

Sid Sunday, April 17, 2011

I’ll be the first to put my hand up and say City deserved to win the match last night and were the better team on the night. So they deserve congratulations for their victory but also being winner’s means their players also show some respect to their opponents and their fans. So I don’t understand what made Balotelli think it would be a brilliant Idea to try and rile up United players and fans!


A Striking Dilemma for Fergie

Sid Saturday, April 16, 2011

Six months ago, I would never have imagined that we’d see Dimitar Berbatov on the bench so often, and struggling to get minutes on the pitch! Berbatov has gone from being our no. 1 striker at the start of the season to our third striker in the matter of months.


What really won us the game at Stamford Bridge

Sid Thursday, April 14, 2011

As I look back at the 2-1 victory over Chelsea last night, so many great moments come to my mind, and for a game that had so much riding on it for Chelsea especially, I think they failed to really turn up. Yes, this was one of their better performances off late, but still they hardly threatened to cause us much trouble and we ended up finishing the match in comfort.

Review of Manchester United transfer targets: Goalkeepers


David De Gea

It’s not unusual to have United linked with so many players in the lead up to the summer, but unlike the past few seasons, Sir Alex hasn’t come out and said he won’t be buying anyone, actually to the contrary he has himself said we’d be getting in at least 2-3 players this summer.

The enormity of players linked to the club is so large I had to divide the article into parts that I will publish over the next few weeks. So the best place to begin is the heart of a team’s defense, a Goalkeeper.

A perfect away game!

Sid Thursday, April 7, 2011

Going into the game at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, there was a feeling of nervousness about. It was after all the quarter-finals of the Champions league, against our Arch-rivals Chelsea and we were playing it at a ground where we had failed to win since 2002. So the chances of coming away with anything, let alone a victory seemed very slim.

A look at Rooney’s ban and possible positives from it.

Sid Wednesday, April 6, 2011

I’m not being crazy when I say we shouldn’t be overly worried about Wayne’s ban. Rooney’s return to form has been coming for the past few weeks where we have seen sparks of brilliance from him, and the goal spree finally came against West Ham, where he brought us back from 2-0 down to a earn us a victory worthy of champions!

Squad Overhaul this summer, If so where do we need new players?

Sid Sunday, April 3, 2011

The English press has been buzzing recently with news that Sir Alex well be overhauling the first team squad this summer, with reports saying his transfer budget is an astounding £100 million. Though I really doubt Sir Alex will splash that much money on the squad but there might be some truth in the rumors for sure.
