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 …

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, …

Solskjaer’s “relegation form” has Manchester United doing just fine

One win in their first four games had people describing the start of Manchester United's season as "a horror" or "disastrous." With three wins dating back to March it was not a fun international break. Many fans were ready to turn on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with some even saying he'd would be sacked by Christmas. …

David de Gea isn’t going to be leaving Old Trafford anytime soon

Two days ago all the reports were saying David de Gea was going to reject a new contract from Manchester United and leave for free next summer. On Tuesday The Guardian is saying he's set to sign a new one, paying him £290k a week, roughly the same as Paul Pogba. Transfer gossip is literally …

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is staying true to his word

Life in a 24/7 news cycle demands immediacy. Patience is a virtue that is no longer shared by the media or it's consumers. Everyone needs more, more stories, more content. So that only makes sense that when nothing is happening the story becomes that nothing is happening. In few places is this more true than …
