#POGRED these things happen – adapt & modify

So Paul Pogba will miss the Manchester Derby this coming Sunday. Whilst I personally think  there was no intentional malice in his challenge on Hector Bellerin, it was reckless, violent conduct and most definitely a red card. A three match ban is deserved. Yes he will be missed at Old Trafford as United try to haul in their city rivals, but lets be honest these things sometimes happen in football and players miss matches for various reasons, that is the whole point of having a squad (especially if you are one of…

Manchester City the invincibles?

I don’t think this will happen personally, but why are people talking about it now? WE ARE IN NOVEMBER! That’s right November. I honestly can’t believe stuff like this comes up already at this stage of the season. I’ve even heard certain conversations in the media comparing the current City players to the famous Arsenal Invincibles. City’s run could actually come to an end this weekend because after fifteen games together, including fourteen wins their central partnership at the back is to come to an end. That’s right, Stones and…

Managerial Merry-Go-Round

The Managerial Merry-Go-Round is that term that we all know but doesn’t seem to have been used as much in recent years, but let’s be honest it’s always been there hasn’t it? The heyday for me was about ten years ago when the like of Pardew, Curbishley, Allardyce, Hodgson, Redknapp, McLeish, Bruce, Warnock and the like were always being touted for any job that came up. Most of the time they were replacing each other or at least someone similar in management style. It was just the easy option for the…

Who is Mike Ashley?

As the news come in that Mike Ashley is now looking to sell Newcastle United before Christmas this year, we look into what he has done for the club and where they can go once he’s gone. Mr Ashley himself has a net worth of around £2.4 billion but one thing that stands out massively is that since he took over the club ten years ago for around £134.4 million he hasn’t even broken their previous transfer fee for a player. With all the money that has come into the Premier League…

Lionel Messi to Manchester???

Dani Alves, formerly of Barcelona and Juventus and currently at PSG once commented words to the effect that he did not know Manchester had two football teams. Those comments from 2014 related to five years earlier when Manchester City were beginning their ascent to becoming one of the best teams in their country before attempting to conquer Europe and become a worldwide brand. Two Premier League titles, a FA Cup and two League Cups later, everybody in football knows how many clubs are based in the Northwest’s largest city. Whilst the red half…

Everton for a top 4 finish?

You might ask why? Or you might ask what are the top 4 odds? Well with all the work Ronald Koeman and the Everton board have done in the past few weeks you’d have every right to ask both questions. They have been very busy in the summer transfer window, in fact they have been the busiest club in the whole of the Premier League so far. I say good luck to them, the board are getting Koeman’s targets in, whilst others clubs seem to still be struggling to get theirs…

Last chance at the Europa Saloon for Man Utd

So after a dramatic, nervy and noisy night at Old Trafford last Thursday, Manchester United’s season took another turn, this time for the positive. Ironically a 1-1 draw, the result that has been the bane of the Red Devils season, was enough to see them through to the Europa League Final at the expense of a spirited Celta Vigo side. A season of ‘what ifs’ (despite already securing a League Cup triumph) can now be turned into a very successful one with the opportunity to win two major trophies as…

Why Amazing Ander should be United’s next Captain

Ander Herrera gave the performance of his Manchester United career on Sunday. It strengthened the view that many United fans have, that he should be the next Club Captain after this summer’s expected departure of Wayne Rooney. The Basque midfielder who was instrumental in United’s best performance since beating Manchester City 4-2 two years ago, a game in which he was also United’s best player, is a trusted lieutenant of Jose Mourinho. Indeed, nobody on Sunday in a red shirt embodied Mourinho’s game plan more clearly. He nullified perhaps this…

Talk is Cheap for Draw-United

Yet another home draw for Manchester United at Old Trafford, their eighth – YES EIGHTH!!!!!!! – has made their quest for making the top 4 in the Premier League that much harder. To be honest, last Saturday’s result didn’t surprise me that much. West Brom, under Tony Pulis, are experts at killing a game and unless you get yourself in front (preferably early on in the match) you are always going to be in for a tough 90+ minutes. MISSED OPPORTUNTIES ALL SEASON Whilst if there was a winner, the…
