Why is the coverage of Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so different?

This has been bugging me for quite some time now. Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are both in their first full seasons as managers of big Premier League clubs. At the start of the season there were questions about Solskjaer and his inexperience and.. fewer questions about Lampard and his lack of experience managing …

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 avoid a really weird moment against Tottenham

It only took 79 minutes for the biggest question-but-not-really-a-question for Manchester United to arise Friday night at Tottenham Stadium. Paul Pogba won United a penalty and that's where a big question could have been asked. Who takes the spot kick? This could have been a big question - and it's certainly a valid one. On the …

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 …

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 …
