close to Charlton's record Wayne Rooney moved to within three goals of Sir Bobby Charlton’s England scoring record on Tuesday night when he netted twice in his national team’s 3-1 away win over Scotland. The Manchester United striker beat the Scots’ substitute goalkeeper Craig Gordon with a bullet header just two minutes after the break, when a wayward shot from Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere ricocheted around the home side’s penalty area. Rooney later side-footed in England's killer third strike, just two minutes after Scotland had pulled a goal back. The Three Lions had entered the interval at an electric Celtic Park in Glasgow with a slender but deserved 1-0 lead after Wilshere set up club colleague Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a header just past the half-hour mark. Rooney was one of three United players who started the game – with Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw forming half of England’s defence – and by the time he made it 2-0, there were four Reds on the pitch with Darren Fletcher replac ...

Louis Van Gaal must sell Manchester United stars in 2015. Javier Hernandez has dropped a big hint this week that he plans to leave Manchester United at the end of the season in order to sign a permanent deal with Real Madrid. But he’s not the only star name likely to leave Old Trafford in 2015. The coach still has some serious deadwood to shift from his squad. 1. Chris Smalling has failed to develop in the manner most at Manchester United expected he would after signing him from Fulham in 2010. The England international is a superb athlete, but his footballing intelligence is seriously suspect. 2. Ashley Young’s impressive performances in pre-season lulled many Manchester United supporters and Louis Van Gaal into a false sense of security. Young has flattered to deceive since completing his £17 million move from Aston Villa in 2011 and no longer has any business being near Manchester United’s first team. 3. Darren Fletcher, The Red Devils’ vice-captain is a model professional who conducts himself ...
Man Utd without FOUR centre halves as defensive crisis worsens for West Ham clash LOUIS Van Gaal'S hopes of sorting out Manchester United’s defensive vulnerability have been hit by the absence of four centre halves for Saturday’s home clash with West Ham. Every day get the latest football news and transfer gossip from the Express Register to receive this newsletter Register for email Chris Smalling (thigh) and Jonny Evans (ankle) have joined Phil Jones (hamstring) on the injury list while Tyler Blackett is suspended following his dismissal in the shambolic 5-3 defeat at Leicester on Sunday. With another centre half Michael Keane on loan at Burnley and Michael Carrick, who has been used as an emergency centre half in the past, still injured, Van Gaal will be forced to play left back Marcos Rojo and one of his defensive midfielders Daley Blind or Darren Fletcher as his centre back pairing with Luke Shaw coming in for his debut at left back. The Manchester United boss will also call youth team players Pa ...
I dont kno what Ed Woodward and his board are waiting for when its just 6 days to the end of the transfer window.The likes of Chris Smalling,Tom Cleverley,Darren Fletcher,Ashley Young,Fellaini,Jones,,can not take Man Utd near the top four.They really need to strengthen the defence nd midfield with worldclass players.
Manchester United make four substitutions; Tom Cleverley, Michael Keane, Jesse Lingard and Shinji Kagawa come on for Darren Fletcher, Chris Smalling, Ashley Young and Juan Mata.
UNDERSTANDING Van Gaal'S 3–5–2 FORMATION. Van Gaal's philosophy to start play from back to front (goalkeeper to attack) is rigid and extremely defined, consisting of four primary layers: 1) The first phase is construction of the attack from defence. Playing out from the back, starting with the goalkeeper. 2) Ball circulation throughout midfield is the secondary layer, enticing defenders out of position and causing disorganisation. 3) Creating chances in the final third having patiently maintained possession of the ball in midfield. 4) Finishing off attacking moves efficiently, with focus on proficient placement of shots. The ball is passed to either of the three central defenders, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Jonny Evans, who are ordered to fan out across the full width of the pitch. Ander Herrera (or Tom Cleverley) roams close to the defence in the initial build-up, making himself available for a pass should a centre-back be closed down, while Darren Fletcher (or Michael Carrick/ Fellaine/ Nick Pow ...
Manchester United beat Inter 5-3 on penalties after their International Champions Cup clash finished goalless. The Red Devils scored each of their penalties, with captain Darren Fletcher converting the decisive kick after Marco Andreolli rattled his effort off the crossbar. Manager Louis Van Gaal made four changes to the starting XI that played Roma on Saturday, with Anders Lindegaard, Chris Smalling, Fletcher and Ashley Young returning to the line-up. United came close to breaking the deadlock in the 10th minute with defender Phil Jones, he stooped low to direct his header towards the bottom corner of the net but Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic got his hand to the ball and denied Jonny Evans on the rebound in a goal-mouth scramble. There were few clear-cut chances throughout the first half, though Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Danny Welbeck cut the Italians apart with a thrilling passing move, only for Mata’s low cross to be cut out before it reached Rooney. Wilfried Zaha was the only player in United ...
Player Ratings: Manchester United 0-0 Inter Milan Anders Lindegaard - Didn’t really have any saves to make, but his distribution and first touch was poor in comparison to De Gea’s. 5/10 Phil Jones - Won headers, passed the ball forward well and looked solid. 7/10 Chris Smalling - Tried as the middle centre-back and looked much more comfortable. 7/10 Jonny Evans - Didn’t give the Inter Milan forward line a sniff. Forming an excellent partnership alongside Smalling & Jones. 7/10 Antonio Valencia - Played well as the right-wingback. Ran up and down all day, and put in some decent crosses. 6/10 Darren Fletcher - Bossed the middle of the park which is what you expect from your captain. Scored the winning penalty, too. Man of the Match. 9/10 Ander Herrera - His one touch football was wonderful to watch, and you appreciate just how much ground he covers over ninetey minutes. 8/10 Ashley Young - Did well as the left-wingback. His crossing was on point and he looked threatening. 7/10 Juan Mata - Picked some ...
Manchester United's successful Tour 2014, presented by Aon, continued with a penalty shoot-out victory after Louis Van Gaal's men were held to a goalless draw by Inter Milan. Ashley Young, Javier Hernandez, Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa and Darren Fletcher all converted from the spot to complete a full set of kicks for the Reds – playing in the new blue third kit for the first time – while Marco Andreolli's miss for Inter proved pivotal at the FedEx Field, home of NFL legends Washington Redskins. Van Gaal started with his three senior centre-backs all on the pitch, with Chris Smalling and Phil Jones switching to the middle and right respectively, while Jonny Evans retained the left-sided role in which he began the tour against LA Galaxy. Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia took up the wing-back positions, with Ander Herrera and again-captain Darren Fletcher allowing Juan Mata to support Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck. The man who Evans, Jones and Smalling are all striving to replace, Inter's new no.15 Ne ...
Juan Mata, Chris Smalling and Darren Fletcher are the latest substitutes to be sent for warm ups on the touchline.
Ryan Giggs marked his first match in charge of Manchester United by leaving out David Moyes' two major signings for Saturday's clash against Norwich. Giggs was appointed as interim manager on Tuesday following Moyes' sacking just 10 months after the Scot arrived at Old Trafford. And the 40-year-old immediately dropped Spanish midfielder Juan Mata, who cost a club record £37.1 million from Chelsea in January, as one of six changes to the team beaten 2-0 at Everton in Moyes' final game last weekend. Mata was named on the bench at Old Trafford, but there was no place in the matchday squad for Belgian midfielder Fellaini, who has endured a miserable season following his £25 million move from Everton. Fellaini had been on the bench at Goodison Park, but he was missing as Giggs recalled Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Antonio Valencia, Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck. Mata, Chris Smalling, Alexander Buttner, Jonny Evans, Nani and Darren Fletcher were the players who made way. Vidic, Ferdinand, Cle ...
Bayern Munich 3-1 Manchester United: Guardiola uses his full-backs in midfield, but Bayern better with a standard system April 10, 2014 The starting line-ups Pep Guardiola played an unusual system, but it didn’t help Bayern break down Manchester United. Guardiola fielded Toni Kroos in the pivot role, with Thomas Muller in midfield and Mario Mandzukic returning upfront. David Moyes brought Shinji Kagawa and Darren Fletcher into his midfield, and recalled Patrice Evra and Chris Smalling at the back. The pattern of the game wasn’t significantly different from the first leg, and the major talking point was Guardiola’s use of his two full-backs. Lahm plays two positions It was surprising that Lahm was seemingly deployed as a right-back, considering Guardiola was without both Thiago Alcantara and Bastian Schweinsteiger from his midfield zone, and therefore Lahm was surely required in the holding role he’s occupied for most of this season. However, moving Lahm to right-back also made sense considering Ma ...

Plenty of alterations for Man United from the side which faced Bayern at home, as Rio Ferdinand is dropped in favour of Chris Smalling, while Darren Fletcher comes into the defensive midfield two, with the visitors presumably hoping that the presence of the Scotland international instils some calm. Danny Welbeck features once again, but this time on the left hand side of midfield, given that the English striker can be trusted with defensive responsibility and tracking back.
David Moyes suggested Wayne Rooney would be fit to play and true to the Manchester United manager's word, the striker is in the starting XI. Rio Ferdinand drops to the bench, with Chris Smalling taking his place in the side. Patrice Evra, Darren Fletcher and Shinji Kagawa come in for Alex Buttner, Marouane Fellaini and Ryan Giggs respectively. Meanwhile, defender Dante, midfielder Mario Gotze and forward Mario Mandzukic come into the Bayern Munich side. There is no place for right-back Rafinha, with Philipp Lahm taking up his position.
Manchester United's team for the game against Bayern Munich appears to have leaked, according to the Daily Mirror, with Rio Ferdinand dropped from the side. Chris Smalling takes the place of the veteran defender at centre-back, while Phil Jones is at right-back, and Shinji Kagawa starts in the hole, with Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck out wide. There is also a place for Darren Fletcher, who partners Michael Carrick in midfield. The reported team in full: De Gea; Jones, Smalling, Vidic, Evra; Carrick, Fletcher; Valencia, Kagawa, Welbeck; Rooney.

What a player, if, as expected, Ryan Giggs succeeds in making his 1,000th senior appearance this season, he will become only the third outfield player in English football to do so. Tony Ford and Graham Alexander, albeit at a considerably lower level, got there earlier while in Peter Shilton, Ray Clemence, Pat Jennings and David Seaman, the other four are goalkeepers.

Manchester United hoping FA Cup drought comes to an end Sir Alex Ferguson has been drilling it home to his Manchester United players that it is time their nine-year FA Cup drought came to an end. After winning the competition four times in 10 years after Ferguson finally ended his United trophy drought by beating Crystal Palace in 1990, the Red Devils have secured it just once since. The 2004 win over Millwall has been followed by disappointing final defeats to Arsenal and Chelsea and two semi-final losses, the most recent against Manchester City in 2011. Of the current squad, only Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Darren Fletcher have winners’ medals, and Ferguson has told his players that statistic needs to change. “The manager has made the point to us that we have not done too well in the last few years,” defender Chris Smalling said ahead of Saturday’s game against West Ham. “We need to make sure we get back on track in the competition. “The league is going well and we’re into the Champions L ...
Ready to batter Newcastle today, they are missing some key players and with Ba and Cisse unable to hit a barn door from 6 yards should be fun. Taylor x 2, Cabaye, Tiote and Ben Arfa all out. A bit of Team News, no official line ups just a snippet off football365. "Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez, Chris Smalling and Darren Fletcher will be amongst those hoping to be involved, having been benched or overlooked against Swansea. Rafael needs to shrug off the hamstring injury that kept him out of the Liberty Stadium encounter, but he could come back into contention for a full-back berth. Gabriel Obertan will be hoping to figure at some stage for Newcastle against his former employers. The French winger made his return from injury in a 1-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday and, with so many attacking talents currently sidelined, he could be offered an opportunity to impress against the side that brought in to England. Cheik Tiote must serve a one-match ban after picking up his fifth yellow card of th ...
You may want to know this ... Chris Smalling spills the beans on his United team-mates: BEST TRAINER: Pauls Scholes. At his age he could rest on his laurels but he's out there and he's kicking a few people as well. He's a class act. MOST SKILFUL: Nani. He's often doing his tricks in a game but he loves to do it in training and more often than not it comes off. HARDEST SHOT: Scholesy. Whether it's on the floor, volley, half-volley, you don't want to be getting in the way of that. WORST DANCER: Anders Lindegaard. He's got too much rhythm going on. He tries, bless him. WORST DRESS SENSE: It's a bit harsh because he's a young lad but Nick Powell. He just wakes up, gets out of bed and puts on whatever's on the floor. I'm sure he'll learn. WORST TASTE IN MUSIC: David De Gea. Sometimes when we're on the coach and he's got his headphones on they're blazing out and I just can't understand what it is. He's into his rock. It's not for my ears. FUTURE MANAGER: Darren Fletcher and Jonny Evans. They seem pretty switche ...

Oh my daysss, just got Darren Fletcher and Chris Smalling in an UT Pack woi
Valencia injury is not serious Darren Fletcher could be on the bench for the visit of Spurs but looks set for another chance to impress against Cluj as he continues his comeback. "Darren's in the squad for tomorrow," confirmed the boss. "Obviously, having played on Wednesday night and contributed so well - also it was his first game of that magnitude for 10 months - I wouldn't think he'll start. But he may get a place on the bench and he could possibly go to Romania and play against Cluj. "That may be an ideal opportunity for him. The great thing about Fletcher the other night was his enthusiasm was fantastic. He played a great part in the victory and in a role different from how we've used him in the past.
Wish Phil Jones,Jonny Evans,Darren Fletcher,Chris Smalling to recover as soon as possible
PROBABLE LINEUPS Manchester City Hart Richards, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy Y Toure, Barry Silva, Tevez, Nasri Aguero Manchester United De Gea Smalling, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Nani Rooney, Welbeck Manchester City look set to welcome back Micah Richards from injury, while striker Mario Balotelli is also available having completed his three- match ban after his sending off against Arsenal.
