25-year-old winger, Ashley Young, has apparently agreed on personal terms and signed a £15m transfer from Aston Villa to Manchester United. (Transfer supposedly to be complete in 7 days.) With Valencia, Nani, Giggs and Park Ji-Sung all fit and in good form – many fans have been questioning why and even how we could use him to improve our squad. There are several great qualities with Young, but the one we need the most is set-pieces.

Geoff Bent, Roger Byrne, Eddie Colman, Mark Jones, David Pegg, Tommy Taylor, Liam Whelan, Duncan Edwards. Always remembered. In Munich you died, in United you live forever. Read the rest of this entry
As we did with Edwin van der Sar when he announced his retirement, here’s a United Nostalgia piece dedicated to the greatest right-back in Premier League history. Gary Neville, we salute you. Legend. Read the rest of this entry
Gary Neville has just announced his retirement from football, in immediate effect. The 35 year old United legend hasn’t played since West Brom on New Year’s Day, where he was fortunate not to get sent off – but he felt it’s time to call it a day.
United legend Gary Pallister believes United has restored a brilliant foundation on which to build to win the battle to retain the Premier League this year. In an exclusive interview with Manchester Evening News, Pally talks about the season so far…
‘I can confirm I have handed a transfer request to the chairman of Manchester City Football Club,
‘Now I need to clear my head and think because this is an important part of my career.
‘My feelings have not changed and it is regrettable that we have reached this situation.
‘But it is something I have felt for some time and have spent many hours thinking this through.
‘I hugely resent the management’s suggestions that I have been unduly influenced by others,
‘I wanted to leave in the summer, but was convinced to return to the club. Sadly, my feelings have not changed.
‘I am disappointed that the management should now see fit to try to portray the situation in another light.
‘My relationship with certain executives and individuals at the club has broken down and is now beyond repair.
‘I do not wish to expand on this at this stage. They know, because I have told them.
‘I wish to clarify that I have no personal issue with the manager Roberto Mancini,
‘The owner has been very generous with what he has offered to me. I would like to thank Sheik Mansour for his understanding and support.’
We warned you it’s all down-hill after United, but you never listened.
United fans, enjoy this. After how he treated us, and the relentless stick we’ve had to cope with after he left us, this is karma in full flow.
This is how it feels to be City.
