United Hold All The Aces In Rooney Power Struggle

Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement, David Moyes was named as his successor, Paul Scholes also brought down the curtain on his Manchester United career for the second and final time, and in other football news a certain Scouse lad who goes by the name of Wayne Rooney, once again stated his desire to leave the club, proving that lightening can strike twice in the same place, it's groundhog day.

Beware! Football's Latest Disease, Fickle Fan Syndrome

Over recent months I've noticed the spreading of a new disease in football, its symptoms include memory loss, myopia and something allied to Tourette's syndrome. I've taken to calling it Fickle Fan Syndrome and it seems to apply equally to all Clubs.

United Have Their Trophy Back!

One more victory, one more precious three points, and what has seemed inevitable for weeks will become a reality. Manchester United have claimed the 20th top division crown, which has now given the club a two title lead over great rivals Liverpool.

And Manchester City may well return with a strong assault next season, but the hinted power shift from red to blue appears once again premature.

Half And Half Scarves Are A Sad Symbolism Of Modern Day Football

Astonished, ashamed and disappointed, these are just a few clean words I can conjure up to describe my feelings about the growing popularity of the Premier League half and half scarf, it's a sad symbolisation of how football and supporters in general, have changed over the last twenty years or so.

Van Persie Saves United As On Song Carroll Inspires West Ham

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.

Fergie Masterstroke Sees United Earn Comfortable Win At Stoke

As Manchester United lined up today to face Stoke City at the daunting Britannia Stadium, many were surprised to see the side being put out by Sir Alex Ferguson.

After a big gap, we saw Wayne Rooney being played as a mainstream central midfielder alongside Michael Carrick with Shinji Kagawa on the left and Antonio Valencia on the right. Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez started upfront for the away side.

Are United Really In The Race To Sign Falcao? 

Radamel Falcao is one of Europe’s most feared strikers. We know that. The Columbian hit-man’s set to score 30+ goals for the fourth consecutive season and will certainly play in La Liga and/or the Premier League in the very near future. We know that.

United's Lead Cut To 12 Points As City Take Pride From Derby Win

It was Frankie Goes To Hollywood who famously sang the lyrics 'When Two Tribes Go To War', on Monday evening, that's exactly what happened under the famous floodlights at Old Trafford as the Red and Blue tribe went head to head in the Manchester derby.

The Sad State Of The English National Team And The Premier League

I saw England win the World Cup in 1966. On TV I will admit but I saw it. The players are legends now and held in the highest esteem, one of which is Sir Bobby Charlton.

I also saw United beat Benfica at the very same Wembley in 1968. George Best was alongside the very same Bobby Charlton. Golden years.

United Look For The Treble Whilst Chelsea Await More Trouble

So Manchester United's route to repeating 1999 now includes Chelsea in the Cup, Real Madrid in Europe and Manchester City in the League. Winning will involve dispatching the Premier League and La Liga Champions and the European Champions, a pretty tough ask - on paper.

Championship-esque United Stroll To Win Over QPR

Manchester United beat QPR 2-0 at Loftus Road yesterday and it was a comprehensive win.

Set on their way by a wonder goal from Rafael (you sure he’s a Right Back!?), United overcame the blow of Robin van Persie’s first-half substitution through a hip injury to go on and win the game via a Ryan Giggs goal. Here are the five talking points from the match:

Who would have thought going into the last Saturday of February that Manchester United could potentially go 15 points ahead of title-rivals Manchester City before Roberto Mancini’s side face-off against Chelsea at home?
