Chris Smalling Transfer To AS Roma Reportedly Still On – We Need To Calm Down

The long drawn out Manchester United saga of the summer hasn't been Jadon Sancho but moving center back Chris Smalling on to AS Roma. Smalling spent last season on loan with Roma where he was one of the best defenders of Serie A. It's no surprise the Italians wanted to make the deal permanent and …

Season Preview: Manchester United Will Be Alright – Part II

If you missed Part I of the preview, catch up on it here. Before we jump in to part II, let's just repeat this little paragraph from last year because frankly it bears repeating over and over and over again until everyone constantly remembers it. What’s ticked me the most over the past week has …

Season Preview: Manchester United Will Be Alright – Part I

Last year I wrote a season preview about how Manchester United would finish in the top four the Premier League. At the time it looked a bold prediction, especially as the overall outlook of the fans was mixed at best last summer. The focus of the piece wasn't so much about why United were going …

Why It Wasn’t Important To Get The Jadon Sancho Deal Done Early

I've been completely calm about this whole saga throughout the summer because this deal was never going to get done before the September international break anyway. Of course that wasn't good enough for Manchester United fans. They wanted the deal done in August. They were screaming how important it was to get business done early …

Both Manchester United And Jadon Sancho Benefit From Potential Transfer Dragging On

It's now the ninth of September. The international break is over, the Premier League season starts in three days - though for Manchester United it's not for another 10 - and Jadon Sancho still hasn't signed. That last part has been the cause of frustration for United fans all summer. Why can't they just get …

My Favorite Thing Today: Arsenal and Tottenham are now better than Manchester United?

The Premier League transfer window has been open for a month now and Manchester United have yet to make a single signing. Is that frustrating? Yes. Is it actually a big deal? As long as they sign players a week before the season and they can play in the team's opening game, not at all. …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …
