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 vs Sheffield United immediate reaction

I don't normally write down my thoughts immediately after a game for good reason. I, like everyone else, get really emotional during matches and often let my emotions dictate my feelings on the match. That's why I think it's really important to always re-watch a game before analyzing it. As fans we come into every …

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’m not putting any stock in the Donny Van De Beek Manchester United rumors

It didn't take long for Manchester United twitter to catch hold of Saturday Night's reports that United were in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van De Beek and then literally run with it. Excitement is sky high, it seems like everyone thinks this move is happening. Let's pump the brakes. Right from the …

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 …
