Following defeat to Liverpool at Anfield United’s ambitions to win a fourth consecutive Premier League title received a set back. Goals from Fernando Torres and David Ngog were enough to beat United on a day when Ferguson’s men created very few chances. But is United’s squad fatally flawed or will Sir Alex Ferguson’s men recover to lift the trophy in May?

Poll: Who should Fergie pick in midfield?

October 2, 2009 Tags: , Polls 1 comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will soon be able to choose from 15 central midfield combinations, with his squad returning to full fitness. Paul Scholes was outstanding against Stoke City last weekend, while Darren Fletcher has been the manager’s first name on the teamsheet in recent weeks. Yet, outcasts Michael Carrick and Anderson were superb in midweek, and Owen Hargreaves will return this month. Then there’s the evergreen Ryan Giggs, who has increasingly been used as a central midfield playmaker.

“We’ve a strong squad. The problem with having everyone fit is picking the right team,” said Ferguson in his weekly Friday press conference.

“Our two central midfielders – Michael Carrick and Anderson – were fantastic against Wolfsburg, and I thought Darren Fletcher and Paul Scholes were outstanding at Stoke. It is giving me a real headache.”

“On Saturday against Stoke, Scholes gave an absolutely masterful performance,” Ferguson added.

“It was incredible, he had 78 passes in the match and four were off target. Four.

“It’s phenomenal rate. As Stoke manager Tony Pulis said after the game, I can’t think of a better United player I’ve seen.

“You can understand that because when you see that kind of performance, it’s wonderful.

“Scholes and Giggs are defying their age and the enthusiasm, confidence and maturity that is in their game and it’s refreshing to see that players can retain these qualities for such a long time.”

Poll: the Manchester derby result will be…

September 18, 2009 Tags: Polls No comments

United take on City at Old Trafford Sunday in the 152nd competitive Manchester derby.

This derby has a little extra spice, however, due to the £200 million that City has spent on new players in the past year. For the first time in decades City actually has a competitive side.

The Manchester derby result will be...

  • Narrow United win (46%, 73 Votes)
  • Comprehensive United win (44%, 70 Votes)
  • The unthinkable (11%, 18 Votes)
  • A draw (2%, 3 Votes)

Total Voters: 159

Poll: Arsène Wenger is…

August 30, 2009 Tags: Polls 4 comments

Arsenal Manger Arséne Wenger completely lost the plot in his side’s defeat to United at the weekend. Wenger started the week lashing out at UEFA for threatening to ban the cheat Eduardo, and ended it blaming the referee, fourth official, Elvis and the Man in the Moon for his side’s 2-1 loss. Wenger defended Eduardo’s outrageous dive against Celtic, and then did the same went Emmanuel Eboué repeated the trick against United. Confirmed liar Wenger seems to be losing the plot…

Poll: should United stop Vidic leaving?

August 19, 2009 Tags: Polls 6 comments

Nemanja Vidic has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, with Barcelona reportedly interested in the giant Serbian defender. It would be a huge loss to the team – and United is said to be preparing a huge pay rise for last season’s Player of the Year, which will take the Serb’s earnings to more than £100,000 per week.

But with persistent rumours that Vidic’s wife is unhappy in Manchester and pushing for a move to Europe, and the player’s agent apparently quoted in the Spanish press as saying his client “dreams” of a move to Camp Nou, should United stop the player leaving?

Should United let Nemanja Vidic move to Barcelona?
