Manchester United Tactical Analysis: Something really positive happened against Norwich City

Manchester United's quarterfinal match against Norwich City reinforced some things that we already know. The drop off between United's A team and B team is significant. Bruno Fernandes can only be so good when it's Scott McTominay and Fred who are in charge of getting him the ball, and when he's trying to set up …

Manchester United vs Sheffield United immediate reaction

I don't normally write down my thoughts immediately after a game for good reason. I, like everyone else, get really emotional during matches and often let my emotions dictate my feelings on the match. That's why I think it's really important to always re-watch a game before analyzing it. As fans we come into every …

I’ve found some Manchester United fans who deserve to be blasted into the sun

We've all had to find different ways to cope with COVID-19 and the lockdown. Everyone did it in their own way, and there's nothing more than that. But while some were busy making tic-toks and doing the toilet roll challenge, 22 year old Marcus Rashford was busy trying to feed thousands of impoverished kids in …

I’m not putting any stock in the Donny Van De Beek Manchester United rumors

It didn't take long for Manchester United twitter to catch hold of Saturday Night's reports that United were in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van De Beek and then literally run with it. Excitement is sky high, it seems like everyone thinks this move is happening. Let's pump the brakes. Right from the …

Stat Analysis: How important is Paul Pogba

At this point it's well known how ridiculous it is that people keep criticizing Paul Pogba and saying Manchester United would be better off without him. In his three plus year at Old Trafford under two different managers the numbers back up how much more of an attack United generate when he's on the pitch. …

There’s an astonishing amount of Jose Mourinho revisionist history on Manchester United Twitter today

I really tried to do it. Knowing the response to a bland 0-0 draw against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League wasn't going to elicit any positive action, and knowing how easily I get sucked into twitter garbage, I made a conscious decision to just ignore it all this morning. It was great! Then this …

Christian Pulisic is getting what he deserves

Christian was left out of the match day squad for Chelsea's Champions League match against Lille Wednesday. Pulisic has only appeared once in Chelsea's last six matches, their 7-1 Carrabao Cup win over Grimsby Town, and the American media is starting to lose their collective minds. https://twitter.com/GrantWahl/status/1177973113411325952?s=20 https://twitter.com/GrantWahl/status/1178042631311564801?s=20 https://twitter.com/FOXSoccer/status/1179462607750590464?s=20 https://twitter.com/stuholden/status/1179459831440248832?s=20 https://twitter.com/MenInBlazers/status/1179462070561099778?s=20 This is all comes …

Scott McTominay voted Manchester United’s player of the month (again) and it’s now a problem

I like Scott McTominay. He's a good solid player who doesn't make too many mistakes, knows his limits, and has a real desire to get better. Most of all he's got a fantastic attitude that all the United players should be striving for. Introduced by Jose Mourinho as a pawn in his war against Paul …

The one unforgivable thing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done

You can't blame Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for everything. Solskjaer inherited a mess of a squad comprised of mostly entitled players and ones who weren't good enough. Solskjaer has been unfairly blamed for a lot of things. He promised to clear out the bad culture from the United dressing room, and while he ultimately did keep …
