The Hey – Why not us? Part II Blog

I wrote this blog last year the morning that United were set to contest the second leg of their Champions League tie against PSG. The hey, crazier things have happened, why not us? blog. It was about 80% tongue in cheek 19% hopeful and 1% mayyyybeee serious. United were without 10 senior players for that match. Those …

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 …

For Manchester United, it’s not “just the Europa League”

If there was one reason why I would have been OK with holding on to Alexis Sanchez it was for games like this one. Thursday night Manchester United will face FC Astana in their first match of a taxing Europa League tournament. With Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford being their only two senior center forwards, …
