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.

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, …

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 …

How Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handles Paul Pogba will determine expectations

There's been a lot made of Paul Pogba recently. I laid out my thoughts on the matter last week. Pogba is United's best player by far. If he left the team would objectively be worse. He's also being covered extremely unfairly by the media and the fans are seemingly trying to run him out of …

Manchester United’s rebuild has no chance if the owners and coaches can’t get on the same page

The Daily Mirror: Anthony Martial's Manchester United future is secure – because the forward is viewed as the club's "Pele" by co-chairman Joel Glazer. Martial's focus and commitment have been called into question by current United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his predecessor Jose Mourinho. Both expressed concerns about the France striker's attitude in training …
