Man of the Match: Newcastle vs Man Utd (Premier League)

So in the end it was alright on the night. A bizarre own goal, a rare penalty miss from Fernandes (he had previously scored 10 out of 10 from the spot for the Red Devils, but didn’t the keeper move before the ball was hit!), at least two shots cleared off the line, and a […]

United in Shambles as Tottenham win 6-1 at Old Trafford

What a horrible day to resume my weekly articles for the new season. It’s just one game and despite I am really tempted to go all out against the Board for not supporting Ole with the players he had identified and demanded for this season, I will resist.  The Board and the owners should be […]

Man of the Match: Man Utd vs Tottenham (Premier League)

OK, so United played 60 minutes of the match with ten men. Inexplicably, Lamela who started it all off and elbowed Martial was awarded a yellow card, while Martial who reacted instinctively with a slap to the former’s chin, was given a red card after Lamela, to rub salt into the wound, went down theatrically. VAR […]

Man of the Match: Brighton vs Man Utd (Carabao Cup)

So once again our ‘other’ eleven did us proud, with Ole opting for ten changes from the team that had beaten Brighton on the same pitch last Saturday. Only Lindelof retained his place. In torrential rain, United maintained control of the match, without the controversies of 5 days ago. My Man of the Match has […]

‘The best team lost against the best players’ opined TV commentator Tim Sherwood. Should one feel sorry for Brighton & Hove Albion who ended up with no points while playing at home? Brighton did after all hit the woodwork no less than five times! The TV commentator maintained that United were lucky to have come […]

Luton Town entered the game having lost just one of 13 games since May, a run which saw them dramatically fight to retain their Championship status. Yet Solskjaer still gave his players the opportunity to prove their worth with 12 days remaining in the transfer window. The Boss  made 10 changes from the side that […]

Palace home post-mortem:  Where do we go from here?

What a disappointing evening on Saturday.  Like most United fans, I was so anxious to see our team play again in the Premiership after the 45-day absence, almost expecting that we would continue from where we left against Seville in our last competitive match last month.  We had totally outplayed Seville on that day and […]

Where Will Donny van de Beek Fit In At Manchester United?

Manchester United shocked Europe a couple of weeks ago when they announced that they had reached an agreement to sign highly talented Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax. The move means that the midfielder will follow in the footsteps of previous Dutchman such as Ruud van Nistelrooy and Robin van Persie, and fans […]

Man Utd vs Sevilla (Europa League): Man of the Match

As they say, it’s goals that win matches. When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked how they can stop Sevilla, which were then unbeaten in 19 games, he replied, tongue in cheek, that they needed to score more goals than them. United and Sevilla’s only two prior meetings were in the last 16 of the 2017-18 Champions […]
