Poll: Who is United’s Player of the Season?

David De Gea

It is football’s equivalent of Oscar Season; that time of year when the gongs are handed out and the focus is on individuals rather than teams. It is a process, says Arsene Wenger, that deflects from the team ethic required in professional football.  Still, with two nominations, David de Gea is the only Manchester United player up […]

Poll: do you get the ‘philosophy’ now?

Louis Van Gaal

Louis van Gaal is a enigma, although he certainly wouldn’t like the characterisation. After all, almost a season after taking the job at Manchester United, supporters are still debating the nature of Van Gaal’s much-discussed ‘philosophy.’ Some might say that we are little closer to a true definition. It is at one both fast-paced total […]

Poll: Should United have strengthened in the window?

Louis van Gaal

The transfer window closed this week with the only business being conducted at Old Trafford involving player exits – aside from a couple of bizarre purchases destined for little more than the under-21 team.

Poll: Should Ed Woodward be sacked?

Ed Woodward

He is the Glazer’s poster-child; the man who masterminded the family’s 2005 leveraged takeover of Manchester United and has executed on the Americans’ vision of a globally sponsored brand. Yet, all is not well with Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice chairman – the man who has led the club into the most troubling period in […]

Poll: which ‘world star’ should United sign?

James Rodriguez

Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward claims that Manchester United can break the world transfer record for player, with manager Louis van Gaal working under no fixed budget.

Poll: where should United strengthen next?

Ander Herrera Luke Shaw

Ed Woodward didn’t fulfill the pre-World Cup publicity; Manchester United failed to make the two acquisitions prior to the World Cup that were so widely rumoured. Yet, the club’s executive vice chairman did much to quell significant criticism of his performance in the marketwhen United signed Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera for fees totalling more […]

Poll: United’s next captain

Nemanja Vidic vs Bayern Munich

The king is dead. Long live the king. Club captain Nemanja Vidić has left Manchester United to join Internazionale after more than eight years and 300 games for the club.
