Paul Scholes insists he is ready to tell it how it is in his new role as a TV pundit. But it seems Class of '92 team-mate Gary Neville is already looking to cool him down, after throwing an ice bucket over him. Scholes, who upset Wayne Rooney earlier this summer with his scathing views, joined Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Phil Neville and a host of other Old Trafford favourites for a charity game against non-league Salford City on Thursday night. Neville threw the ice bucket over Scholes as part of a charity cause for the James McCarthy Foundation - not the Everton midfielder, but a young man who suffered a brain tumour in a car accident and wants to complete his 'bucket list' - and the former United midfielder apparently requested that Darren Fletcher be next in line to be soaked. The former England midfielder will embark on his latest career turn next week as a pundit for BT Sport in their Premier League curtain-raiser between United and Swansea. Speaking to Sam Wallace ahead of the launch of his ne ...
13 Set for Old Trafford Exit In Man United Clear-Out. .Veterans Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic and interim boss Ryan Giggs are set to end their Man United playing careers as incoming boss Louis van Gaal looks to bring in fresh blood. .Wingers Nani and Ashley Young have steadfastly failed to deliver the goods over the past couple of campaigns and will be looking for new clubs. .Darren Fletcher has looked a shadow of his former self since returning from illness and fellow midfielder Tom Cleverley has, rightly or wrongly, become something of a scapegoat for the shocking campaign David Moyes presided over and both are apparently likely to be offloaded. .Japanese international Shinji Kagawa hasn't come close to the form that made him a much sought after talent at Borussia Dortmund and a move back to the Bundesliga is likely. .Back-up striker Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez are seemingly surplus to requirements as is Dutch left-back Alexander Buttner. .Man United are also looking to sell Marouane ...
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish joins Dave Farrar and Matt Holland - plus Steven Reid on West Brom, Darren Fletcher on Ryan Giggs and Magath and Solsjkaer on relegation
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 ...
Preview & Predicted Line-Ups: Man Utd – Norwich By Tim SimonPosted on April 25, 2014 This screenshot was taken from the Squawka Football App – Download it here What a difference a week makes. This time last week, David Moyes’ Manchester United were preparing for a game against Everton which would ultimately be the last game of his reign as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor. After the Scot’s sacking, Ryan Giggs has been placed in temporary charge for the remaining four league games, starting with the weekend game with Norwich, and all of a sudden, the positivity around Old Trafford has made a welcome return. Giggs, United’s record appearance maker, has promised that the side he picks in his first game as boss, will play with a quick tempo against a Canaries team that are fighting for their Premier League lives. For Norwich and caretaker manager Neil Adams, Moyes’ sacking could not have come at a worse time. With tough games to follow their trip to Old Trafford, they would have seen this as a winn ...
sikpa2. biar David Moyes starts from the bottom. ok lah sik kenak belasah seperti yang dijangka nak? evra's goal was awesome. might be his ultimate goal for Manchester United in UEFA Champions League. I think he was still excited that his marking on Mandzukic was so loose during the reply goal 22 seconds later. Vidic also scored his ultimate goal with his trademark heading goal from corner kick in the first leg. They will be missed. thank you Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra and maybe Darren Fletcher, Robin Van Persie and Michael Carrick for awesome campaign in UEFA Champions League. Maybe we can play europa league next season. I still think Ryan Giggs will play for another 10 years.
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.
MOYES ADDS CLEVERLEY, ZAHA TO Man Utd SALES LIST Tom Cleverley is up for sale at Manchester United. The Daily Mail says United manager David Moyes plans a massive clearout of senior players. He has a list of players he wishes to move out of the club. These include midfielders Anderson, Nani and Wilfried Zaha and defender Alexander Buttner. Moyes will also listen to good offers for Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa and Javier Hernandez. Meanwhile, Nemanja Vidic is leaving for Inter Milan and Moyes expects to lose Patrice Evra to Serie A and Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs to retirement.
Players i want out of Man United: Ryan Giggs, Patrice Evra, Ashley Young, Anders Lindegaard, Rio Ferdinand and Darren Fletcher. Players who should improve improve their game are: Danny Welbeck, Shinji Kagawa, Tom Cleverley, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Antonio Valencia and Chris Smalling. players who should be hailed are: Wayne Rooney, David De Gea, Phil Jones, Rafael Pereira Da Silva, Adnan Januzaj, Juan Mata and Jonny Evans.
At work I've heard this opinion that our squad is suddenly very poor, my response is always the same: Look at Chelsea. Who thought a defence of Ivanovich, Terry, Cahill, Azpilicueta would compete on any sort of level this time last season? You have a player who is way past it, an upper mid table plodder, a talented youngster and a powerful full back lacking any technical ability. On paper that looks like a defence that Spurs wouldn't trade for, but guess what? They have comfortably conceded the fewest goals in the league. Their manager (Jose Mourinho) has them playing like top class player's, just like Fergie did with Rafael, Evra, Ferdinand and Evans last season. Great managers motivate (and build a system that encourages) good player's to play great. Last night The Times reported that Ryan Giggs shouted at David Moyes that the midfield was getting overrun at 70mins and only then David Moyes bought on Darren Fletcher. My verdict on David Moyes is damning. He is a average manager who is not cut out for a ...
Manchester United have released the list of nominees for the next captaincy role, now that it's confirmed current skipper Nemanja Vidic is to quit the club at the end of the season. It's a common that more senior players like Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Ryan Giggs are to follow Vidic out of the club come season end. It might seem strange to others that Robin Van Persie is not on that list of nominees. The nominees are Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones, Darren Fletcher, Jonny Evans and David De Gea.. In your own view, who deserves the famous Red Devil arm-band at Old Trafford once Vidic le
Another defeat for Man Utd (the first time in 13 years we have lost 3 games in a row.) Although this is a two legged game and we got the away goal, when you have injuries and your team is low on confidence this result does not help. When we are trailing he brings on Darren Fletcher and plays Ryan Giggs from the beginning, You don't bringing Hernandez with 3 minutes to go and expect a miracle. No wonder Wilfred Zaha is moaning and wondering why am I not in this team! Although we knew this would be a tough season for us and the team needed rebuilding, Moyes is quickly turning us into a laughing stock. Massive game Saturday now!
1414: Norwich City v Man United. Manchester United make five changes after edging Hull City 3-2 on Boxing Day. Wayne Rooney is replaced by Javier Hernandez up front. Rafael drops out for Nemanja Vidic in defence, as Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs and Shinji Kagawa come in for Antonio Valencia, Darren Fletcher and Danny Welbeck. Norwich City boss Chris Hughton changes three players from the team that lost 2-1 at home to Fulham. Russell Martin and Ryan Bennett come in at the back for Steven Whittaker and the suspended Michael Turner. Wes Hoolahan replaces Johan Elmander further up the field. Norwich: Ruddy, Martin, Ryan Bennett, Bassong, Olsson, Johnson, Fer, Snodgrass, Hoolahan, Redmond, Hooper. Subs: Whittaker, van Wolfswinkel, Bunn, Elmander, Garrido, Becchio, Murphy.

Phil Jones can give Manchester United a midfield presence that's been missing since the days of Roy Keane Our man in Manchester, David McDonnell, on why United's Mr. Versatility is can make the defensive midfielder position his own at Old Trafford Midfield general: Phil Jones excelled in the middle of the park against Arsenal When Sir Alex Ferguson, towards the end of his Manchester United reign last season, claimed Phil Jones could become the club's greatest-ever player , there was much sniggering and rolling of eyes. Set against such iconic names as Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best, Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs and Cristiano Ronaldo, and their laudable achievements, it seemed absurd to entertain the notion that Jones could even be mentioned in the same breath. Although a competent, diligent and hard-working player, Jones lacks the flair and bewitching qualities of those more illustrious names that have pulled on the famous United shirt in the past and captivated fans all over the world. As such, Ferguson may ...
Darren Fletcher is 10 years younger than Ryan Giggs and has played 3 less games for his country.
STAT ATTACK: 1.Wayne Rooney and Gonzalo Higuain have never been caught Offside this season !! 2.Real Madrid will wear their green kit this time.They have never lost in European competition in green kit. 3.After drawing the first leg,Real Madrid have won 2nd leg only 1 out of 8 times. 4.Today's match can mark Ryan Giggs' 1000 professional appearance,a rare feat indeed. 5.Paul Scholes,Phil Jones and Darren Fletcher all ruled out from Manchester United side. 6.Iker Casillas doubtful for tonight's clash.Don't know why he was brought with the team. 7.According to press,today's clash can break record for highest football match viewership !!
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. And what about this take a look at his Man U team mates Manchester United ages on Ryan Giggs' debut, 2 March 1991 Paul Scholes, 16 years, four months Anderson, two years, 11 months Rio Ferdinand, 12 years, four months Javier Hernandez, two years, eight months Michael Carrick, nine years, eight months Alexander Buttner, two years, one month Nemanja Vidic, nine years, five months Shinji Kagawa, one year, 11 months Patrice Evra, nine years, two months Tom Cleverley, one year, seven months Robin Van Persie, seven years, seven months Chris Smalling, one year, four months Darren Fletcher, seven years, one month Ben Amos, 11 months Anders Lindegaa . ...
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 ...
Match Preview: Wigan Athletic vs Manchester United “Wigan are a tough team to play against. They play with a different system to what we’re used to and they play it well.” (Ryan Giggs) Wayne Rooney, Nani and Anderson will remain on the sidelines. Sir Alex Ferguson should be able to call on the services of Rafael and Phil Jones after injury. After looking jaded in the latter stages against West Brom, Michael Carrick could be rested – Ryan Giggs, Darren Fletcher and Paul Scholes will be on standby. Nemanja Vidic and Shinji Kagawa unlikely to play 2 games in quick succession on return from injury. Javier Hernandez likely to start. Predicted line-up: De Gea, Rafael, Jones, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Fletcher, Scholes, Young, Hernandez, Van Persie Away record: P10 W7 D1 L2 F22 A15 Pts22 Away form: W W L W W D
SIR Alex Ferguson PLEASED WITH THE Manchester United MIDFIELD SIR Alex Ferguson has defended the strength of his midfield department. Manchester United have been eyeing midfielders for two seasons since Paul Scholes announced he was retiring. But the former England star made a U-turn last season and is still part of what Fergie sees as a six-strong section of the squad. The United boss said: “People say we are short in midfield but I have Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Darren Fletcher and Anderson. “So we are not so bad. Carrick and Cleverley were the two against Sunderland last weekend and they did well together.” Fergie can also add the emerging Nick Powell, 18, to that list. But United continue to be linked with midfielders and with Scholes now 38 and Giggs 39, that is hardly surprising. Inter Milan’s Wesley Sneijder was the original target and the Dutch master is currently in dispute with the Italian club. United have also been eyeing German midfielder Mesut Ozil’s situ ...
Manchester United produce more first- team players for clubs in Europe's top 5 leagues than any other team in England, according to research by Sporting Intelligence. Sir Alex Ferguson's side are ranked fifth in the world behind the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona, and French clubs Lyon and Rennes. Twenty players who have graduated from the Old Trafford academy have gone on to play in the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 or Serie 'A', one less than French side Rennes who sit fourth with 21 'primary' academy products. The research deemed a primary youth academy prospect to "belong" to a certain club if they had spent three or more years at the facility between the ages of 15 and 21. For Manchester United, that meant the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Darren Fletcher, Jonny Evans, Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck all count as home-grown players, and the majority are now first-team regulars. Other players to have come through the ranks at Old Trafford, only then to have moved on, include St ...
“Cleverley did very well in the derby and deserved his position. We have a lot of options in midfield with Anderson, who is injured at the moment, Darren Fletcher, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs. People says we’re weak in midfield but these are very good players. “Sometimes it gives me a problem with selecting the correct two but today (Saturday) was very simple though because Carrick and Cleverley deserved to play after last week.” - SAF on the midfield. Don't forget even Kagawa is in the mix. Who would you like seeing starting week in week out?
SAF: “We’re not really short in midfield. We’ve got Darren Fletcher, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes. It’s not too bad. I can play Wayne Rooney in there. But I am looking at how I can fill the wide positions as it's a bit of a problem. Welbeck can play wide and is a definite option for me.”
"Alex Ferguson will be without Anderson, Antonio Valencia and Nani through injury. Tom Cleverley is almost certainly out with the calf injury he sustained during the Champions League defeat to Cluj. With Shinji Kagawa also still unfit, Ferg uson has Phil Jones, Ryan Giggs or Paul Scholes to start alongside Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher. It is a far-from-ideal preparation for United as they seek to avenge the misery inflicted upon them in the league by City last season."
Tributes to Sir Alex Ferguson: David Beckham: "It's an amazing day for you and Manchester United. I want to say thank you for everything you have done for me. My time at Manchester United was without doubt the best in my career." Eric Cantona: "I think in five years' and ten years' time he will be stronger than today." Michael Carrick: "His record is incredible. To be at this great club for such a length of time is fantastic. Only he has ever done that and I don't think it will ever be done again. He is probably the best manager of all time." Andy Cole: "He represents Manchester United. It is a great honour to have played for him. To be at any club as long as he has has to be classed as phenomenal." Patrice Evra: "They should have done it a long time ago for what he has done for the club and what he has achieved. It is just a privilege to me playing for him and Manchester United." Darren Fletcher: "A statue is thoroughly deserved. He has been a massive influence on the club as it is today." Ryan Giggs: "H ...
"That should be the last time Ryan Giggs starts a Premier League game for United unless a) they have already won the league, or b) Paul Scholes, Darren Fletcher, Anderson and Tom Cleverley are all involved in a freak skiing accident (presumably Anderson lands on the other three)."

Fletcher the father figure Darren Fletcher is preparing to help Manchester United’s youngsters through what’s bound to be a memorable experience in Istanbul on Tuesday night. At 28, the Scotland captain is far and away the Reds' most experienced player in the 21-man squad Sir Alex Ferguson selected for Tuesday’s Champions League Group H tie against Galatasaray. With United already assured of knockout phase football, the manager left the likes of Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Robin Van Persie in Manchester, opting instead to travel to Turkey with a squad laced with youth. Indeed, of the 21 Reds in Istanbul, only Fletcher, Michael Carrick and Anderson have started more than 20 European games for United. And Fletcher, who made his Reds debut in a Champions League match aged just 19, says he’ll gladly play father figure to the younger lads. “I’m 28 and one of the most senior players in the squad,” he told MUTV. “But it’s a role I’m used to with Sco ...
I Think, for example, about the midfield options I’ve got. This is an area where some people say we’re weak but I’ve got Darren Fletcher coming back from illness, Tom Cleverley developing as a player, young Nick Powell improving, Anderson back fit and looking terrific, plus Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Ryan Giggs. I’ve got heaps of midfield options now."In the wide positions I’ve got Ashley Young fit again, Nani and Antonio Valencia. Then I’ve got the strikers. My area of worry for a long time now has been the back four.Words of Sir Alex.
Ins and outs: Sir Alex will keep everybody guessing with the nature of his line-up although he did confess he felt both managers would make changes. Senior figures such as Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie could be rested with one eye on Saturday's match with Arsenal so the likes of Scott Wootton, Anderson, Darren Fletcher and Ryan Giggs could come into the boss' thinking. Chelsea are still missing John Terry and Frank Lampard and have included youngsters George Saville and Nathan Ake in their squad. Branislav Ivanovic and Fernando Torres sit out their one-match bans.
Reds squad flies to Romania United are taking a 21-man squad to Romania for the Champions League encounter with CFR Cluj. The Reds are looking to build on the opening Group H victory against Galatasaray but experienced midfielders Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Michael Carrick have not travelled. Antonio Valencia, who injured his ankle in the win at Liverpool, is not ready to return and fellow winger Ashley Young remains sidelined, along with the likes of Nemanja Vidic, Chris Smalling andPhil Jones. Jonny Evans is available, despite picking up a knock late on against Tottenham, but Michael Keane and Scott Wootton providecover at the heart of the defence.Youngsters Jesse Lingard, Nick Powell and Ryan Tunnicliffe join Darren Fletcher amongst the midfield options while Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie could combine in attack again after showing promising signs inthe second half on Saturday. United: De Gea, Lindegaard; Büttner, Evans, Evra, Ferdinand, M.Keane, Rafael, Wootton; Anderson, Cleverley, Fletcher, L ...

It is instructive to note that from the United team that lost to Arsenal in the 2005 FA cup final, what is still Arsenal’s last silverware to date, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs and Darren Fletcher are still with the club. How many from Arsenal are left?
Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United team-mate Darren Fletcher would have been in contention for the Team GB squad were he not battling illness.
