There it is then. The unthinkable has actually happened and come july 1st 2013, Manchester United will have a new manager at the helm. A certain Glaswegian who has made a name for himself at Everton, who on a shoestring budget has wheeled and dealt his way to making a consistent side that over the years, has steadily enhanced its reputation.

At the start of the 2012/13 season teams and players begin with hope and expectations and I thought it would be interesting to review the players who least met expectations this season.
As Manchester United stumble to the title, the gap closing but maybe not fast enough for Manchester City to snatch it away again, the general play continues to disappoint.
Brilliantly consistent rather to consistently brilliant sums up United. A rather odd formation with Robin van Perfect on top of a midfield 5, emulating City, just didn't work.
Why are some Manchester United supporters so trigger happy shooting down emerging talent from the youth academy set up?
Why are some so quick to dismiss youth,insisting on bringing in overseas players instead?
Wayne Rooney has been ruled out of Manchester United’s clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford this Sunday. Nani and Anderson are back in the squad after recovering from hamstring problems. How will their return to the action boost United?
Take your mind back to the summer of 2011.
Back then Samir Nasri was on his way out of Arsenal, another one of Arsene Wenger’s big-name players that was being priced out of the Emirates. His destination it always seemed was Manchester, but people were unsure of whether he would be lining up in a red or a blue shirt.
Manchester United move 3 points clear of an unenergetic Manchester City as the season moves into December with the Derby arriving to give us a chance to open a 6 point gap before Christmas.
Although that's the truth there won't be many United fans reading the above statement with any confidence at all.
Manchester United vs QPR is a fixture which evokes memories of many great games of the past, with players like Rodney Marsh looming large in those memories.
QPR were always a team that played with style, like West Ham United, a tradition of passing football and players who knew how to entertain.
Welcome to Hell! Well not this time.
Manchester United Reserves acquitted themselves well in a hostile environment against a Galatasaray team for which it mattered. And boy didn’t our boys did well.
This weekend was the Formula One Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. This was the first time the race was run in the US since 2007 and I was there, watching Lewis Hamilton win a race full of drama and excitement.
The preparation, meticulous planning and then flawless execution is what it takes to win in this sport. The best teams leave nothing to chance, except chance itself. Luck is the only variable.
First of all, I am a Celtic fan writing this piece on Victor Wanyama so I will aim to be as unbiased as possible whilst giving my opinion as to why I know he would be a great signing for Manchester United (although hopefully not for a while!).
After his performance against Barcelona I'm sure there is quite a bit of hype surrounding the young Kenyan so it's hard not to get carried away.
