Why Ashley Young is the player we need

How many times did you say, we lack that bit of spark, bit of energy or that through ball last season? Frustrating isn’t it? How many times did we need a player like Young to step up to the plate to chase a winner last year? Countless, simple as that. Countless.

Ashley Young, just 25 – is a perfect signing for Manchester United. I said it years ago, he’s a player I’ve always wanted to see at United, and it seems he’s wanted to come here too for quite a while. Young, cancelled his rather expensive wedding last week to ensure that the deal gets completed as soon as possible.

Who is David De Gea? An Atletico Madrid fan tells all.

Over the past few months, United have been heavily linked with Atletico Madrid keeper, David De Gea. Those rumours were proved correct when, last month, Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that we’re interested in signing the Spanish stopper.

Not much is known of De Gea, so we got in contact with Julio Megía – an Atleti fan who runs the Forza Atleti blog. Julio speaks very highly of his club’s keeper, and you can read what he had to say below.

A natter with the enemy: Barca vs UNITED

Ahead of the Champions League final this coming Saturday, Spencer from totalBarca very generously took time out to answer some of our questions. From improving Barcelona, to rejecting Anderson. Here’s what he had to say: Read the rest of this entry

Why Luka Modric would be my number one target

There are few players in world football that get the pulses racing. Special players who make the game look ridiculously simple, gracing the biggest stages with twinkle toes and beautiful elegance.

Luke Modric is one. I’ve seen very few players who are so elegant to watch. He has the complete package for a central midfielder. He has the vision, touch and spacial awareness to play at the highest level.

For me, he would be a perfect fit into the Manchester United midfield.

I’m often asked: Sneijder or Modric? It’s a difficult one, two fantastic players who are capable of producing moments of sheer brilliance but for United, there’s only one option. Modric. Read the rest of this entry

We’re Going to Wembley!

After the disappointing loss at the Emirates, Manchester United hoped they would quickly bounce back and finish up the job in Europe v FC Schalke 04. After 9 changes were made in the XI that played v Arsenal, some were left raising their eyebrows at Sir Alex Ferguson – but we should all know not to question his brilliance when it comes to winning trophies. As usual, as the game kicked off, Schalke seemed to have a little bit of an edge with the possession until the squad kicked into their stride.

It only took 26 minutes for Darron Gibson to set Valencia free, with an absolutely beautiful ball. Valencia scored the goal, and after that, I don’t think we heard from the Gibbo haters for the rest of the night. In quick succession, it was Valencia who set Gibbo free at goal – and we scored in the 31st minute. Nothing like a “thank you” in the form of a goal for Gibbo, eh? Schalke would then come back into the game slightly, scoring a goal in the 35th minute. But after that, the game was pretty much done and dusted as the aggregate scoreline read 4-1.

United outclass Schalke in Europe

This may be the best performance I’ve ever seen from the boys in Red this evening in Germany. Manchester United totally outclassed Schalke 04 this evening in a game that ended up being 0-2 to the reds. Fantastic performance.

In the semi-final of the Champions League, you would of thought it would of been a very tight game. Not tonight, we were class. Totally dominated the Germans this evening, with 18 attempts on goal, but for Neuer, Schalke were very very disappointing.

Manchester United Sink Chelsea!

Everyone knows Chelsea’s owner, Roman Abramovich, is quite obsessed with winning the UEFA Champions League. In 2008, Chelsea reached the final, but failed again to win it in a penalty shootout against Manchester United. John Terry could have won it for his club, but slipped and put the ball wide. Then, man of the match, Van der Sar put in a top class save from a poor penalty by Anelka and won the UEFA Champions League for Manchester United in Moscow. One of the most memorable matches against Chelsea, in my opinion.

Wayne Rooney’s hattrick sends United rolling on

Manchester United dominated at Upton Park with huge thanks to a name you’ve all heard of many a time before, Wayne Rooney. Wayne scored a fantastic hattrick at Upton Park this afternoon consisting of a brilliant free kick, a fantastic strike from the edge of the area to the bottom corner and a wonderful penalty to cap it all off. That’s without mentioning Mr. Javier Hernandez too! Who capped it all off at the end of the game, making sure that Manchester United take all 3 points away.
