Poll: Is Ashley Young an embarrassment to United?

Ashley Young, part-time winger, full-time diver – at least if the last two weekend’s matches are anything to go by.

UEFA HQ

Manchester United kicks off the Europa League campaign against Ajax on Thursday, in what promises to be the glamour tie of the round.

Poll: Should Ferguson spend in January?

Nemanja Vidic

Manchester United has suffered a December horribilis, with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side dumped out of the Champions League, Nemanja Vidić ruled out for nine months after a shocking triple knee ligament injury, and now Darren Fletcher laid-low with a serious long-term bowel disease.
