All the transfer rumours and top stories from the back pages of the morning newspapers on Wednesday. THE GUARDIAN Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal is planning a summer clearout, with first team regulars Radamel Falcao, Robin Van Persie, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Rafael da Silva among those who could be leaving Old Trafford. Daily Mirror QPR may sack manager Harry Redknapp if they lose to Manchester United on Saturday, with Tim Sherwood his likely replacement. Jermain Defoe has agreed a £14m, £80,000-per-week deal to join Sunderland from FC Toronto. THE SUN England manager Roy Hodgson has had to scrap a planned get together dinner with his squad as he was unable to agree a suitable date with Premier League bosses. Burnley are planning a £2.5m move for West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans. THE TIMES Manchester City will rebuff any loan inquiries for £25m-rated forward Stevan Jovetic, with Juventus understood to be interested in taking him on a temporary deal. Aston Villa will wait until the ...
Former Manchester United full- back Gary Neville has labelled Southampton's Morgan Schneiderlin as "the real thing" following his part in the Saints' 1-0 victory over Louis Van Gaal's men. The Red Devils saw their 10-game unbeaten run come to an end, as some adroit finishing from Dusan Tadic and costly misses from Juan Mata gave Ronald Koeman's side three points at Old Trafford. "Schneiderlin, not being disrespectful to Southampton here, I think he could play at any of the top clubs in the league," Neville said on Sky Sports after the game. content continues after the advert "I'm talking about Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, United, Liverpool, Tottenham. He's that good. "Over a two-three year period now he's shown himself to be the real thing." Schneiderlin has recently been linked with a move away from the club, with both United and Arsenal reportedly interested.
Manchester United's stats show how far they still have to go before they can get back to the top Louis Van Gaal was insistent Manchester United were the dominant team. He even brought out that old insult about the opponents ‘coming for a draw’ – a line that sounds weak after a share of the points and worse after they’ve gone home with all three. United skipper Wayne Rooney promptly went further. “I think we deserved to win,” he told Sky Sports. Players and managers are entitled to put a positive spin on things, but this felt dangerously close to ignoring the obvious. For while, Juan Mata squandered two good openings as well as a more difficult chance, this was still the first time United have failed to register a shot on target since April 2012 at Manchester City. It was the first time they’d done so at Old Trafford since May 2009. Those dates might surprise some given David Moyes’ record-busting efforts for much of last season. Indeed, it was something of a shock to discover Southampton h ...
London - Manchester United will attempt to stave off an assault on their third-place position in the Premier League table when they welcome closest pursuers Southampton to Old Trafford on Sunday. United have gone 10 games without defeat since losing 1-0 at joint-leaders Manchester City on November 2, but they have taken only six points from a possible 12 after drawing three of their last four matches. It has prevented Louis Van Gaal's side from fully exploiting recent slip-ups by co-leaders Chelsea, who they trail by nine points, and has allowed Southampton to close to within one point. After a run of four straight defeats in late November and early December, including a 2-1 loss in the reverse fixture, Ronald Koeman's side have won three and drawn one of their last four games.
these allegations are true, Juventus will not be able to refuse the money. You know what the funny thing is? Paul Pogba from 100 million? If you believe descriptions, United does not have a chance to bring Strootman, Roma is unrealistic, while the other side will not let Real Balea. Therefore, the alleged Juventus be offered 77 million pounds, that is 100 million for Paul Pogba. Van Gaal wants to restore the French in "Old Trafford", but it is unlikely that the Italians accept this winter. In the summer, if it gets kind of offer, Juventus will not think twice, with 100 million to completely renovate it. The funniest thing is that they Pogba received as a gift, as free agents, but he refused the offer of United and accepted that the Italians. Three and a half years later, "Octopus Paul", as they call him in Turin is probably the most talented midfielder in the world. However, wonders and Pogba, in December they were stories that his manager Rajola talks with Manchester City who believes that the Frenchman ...
Rival Watch!!! Chelsea suffer their second defeat of the season as they were Kane-d 5-3 at the White Hart Lane to leave them top of the league only by alphabetical order. We are only 9 points off the top. Elsewhere Arsenal were beaten 2-0 at St Mary's by Southampton who we face next in the league at Old Trafford. Everton were also beaten 2-0 at Hull City while Liverpool were pegged back by a spirited Leicester City fightback from 2 goals up at Anfield. Of all other remaining teams only Manchester City won though Sunderland deserved at least a draw, all other Premier League games ended in draws. With only 2 away wins out of 10 games, United need to get back to winning ways against The Saints on 11th January to firmly cement a top three spot. We obviously miss Ashley Young for some weeks due to a hamstring injury but hoping Fellaini, Rojo, Di Maria and Blind will be back in contention. Up next, away at Yeovil Town for the FA cup on Sunday, only a win is acceptable.
While Chelsea and Manchester City slug it out at the top of the Premier League, Louis Van Gaal's Old Trafford revolution gathers ever more momentum in the red half of Manchester. The Dutchman endured a tricky start to his reign but seven wins in eight league games have put United hot on the heels of the pacesetters. If the current United side can emulate the teams of Alex Ferguson who were renowned for a strong second half of the season, Van Gaal's men could yet have their say in the destiny of the title. United visit Tottenham Hotspur in a lunchtime kickoff today as the games continue to flow thick and fast over the festive period. 'The signs have been good in recent weeks,' midfielder Michael Carrick told the club website (manutd.com). 'We were bitterly disappointed not to win last week (at Aston Villa) but we beat Newcastle and now have two big away games. They will be a good test for us to see where we are at.' After the trip to Spurs, United - seven points behind City and 10 adrift of Chelsea - are a ...
Ashley Young is the latest Manchester United player to pass comment about his sides 3-1 victory over Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Boxing Day after a dominant display by the Red Devils. United have gained momentum extending their unbeaten run to eight matches with a tough away trip to White Hart Lane at lunchtime on Sunday on the horizon. It is imperative that United do not slip up at this stage, especially with another tough away trip against Stoke City on New Years Day. Young was another stand out player in the victory over Newcastle United operating in the wing-back position on the left-hand side on the flank, assisting United in ensuring that three points were the only eventuality from the match. The victory puts pressure on leaders Chelsea and second placed Manchester City, even though they are ten points and seven points clear, respectively, of the Old Trafford club. If United can unnerve their rivals with their dominant displays, the pressure of that could mean that either side will make mist ...
Three Points: Wayne Rooney sparks Man United's dominance vs. Newcastle MANCHESTER -- A trio of observations on Manchester United's 3-1 win against Newcastle in the Premier League on Boxing Day. Manchester UnitedManchester United Newcastle UnitedNewcastle United 3 1 FT Game Details Lineups and Stats 1. United roll back the years Thrilling forward play and deadly counterattacks are what a younger generation of Manchester United Fans were brought up on. If this season's Premier League title looks beyond Louis Van Gaal's team, Old Trafford is being presented with a vision of an imminent future in which their team might soon compete with Chelsea and Manchester City. United have not lost at home since opening day, and while their defence continues to look far from safe, their scope of attacking options have the capability of killing opponents. Newcastle did not play especially badly, but after failing to take early chances, found themselves two goals behind. Wayne Rooney, withdrawn to midfield, scored both to m ...
Louis Van Gaal will shortly address the media ahead of Liverpool visit on Sunday. After five wins on the trot, Manchester United are on a roll. But Gary Neville is amongst many who feel neither side is playing particularly well. Not that the fans will care if victory in the most intense of games is achieved. For, whilst Manchester City and Leeds are core rivalries at Old Trafford, for many supporters, Liverpool are the true enemy.
The Premier League's fiercest rivalry returns on Sunday as Manchester United take on Liverpool. While Louis Van Gaal's men are on the rise following five successive league wins, Liverpool are still reeling from their Champions League exit. Who will have the upper hand at Old Trafford? Scott Patterson (United) and Steven Kelly (Liverpool) face off ahead of the big one. So, Liverpool are there for the taking -- right? Scott Patterson: You would think so as Liverpool's football recently has been pretty poor. United aren't playing particularly well, either, but at least they are getting results. There appears to be a switch in mentality, which has allowed United to get all three points against the likes of Arsenal and Southampton, despite being largely dominated. It's too early to claim that the "never say die" attitude of the Sir Alex Ferguson era has returned, but the team is certainly looking less fragile than it did at the beginning of the season. Liverpool will probably raise their game at Old Trafford. ...

Manchester United are back in the midst of another defensive injury crisis amid fears that Marcos Rojo could be out for six weeks with a dislocated shoulder. Rojo was carried off on a stretcher during United’s Manchester Derby defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday and needed oxygen at one point. Further rests have confirmed the defender’s injury is a full dislocation and the recovery time could be six weeks or even longer. The exact timescale will depend on whether Rojo has torn or merely stretched the ligaments that usually hold the shoulder in place. Rojo’s father appeared to confuse matters last night when he told a TV station in Argentina: ‘The injury is not too severe. He will miss two or three games.’ However, senior sources at Old Trafford confirmed yesterday that the injury was a dislocation and it seems improbable the £16million signing could recover that quickly. This means United manager Louis Van Gaal will have to plan for the coming weeks of the campaign without ...
New official Manchester United fan after long time admired with this club,now the right time to let World know that I the one of red devil fans...tonight see u my brother Manchester City at Old Trafford...
Manchester United midfielder Angel Di Maria says he will put aside ties with his Manchester City countrymen when the two sides meet this weekend. Di Maria is set to face fellow Argentines such as Sergio Aguero and Pablo Zabaleta when United travel to the Etihad for Sunday's Manchester Derby. Di Maria also dismissed suggestions that he rejected a move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer and insisted he never had any hesitation in signing for United. French champions Paris Saint-Germain were heavily linked with a move for Di Maria throughout last summer, but he eventually sealed a British- record £59.7 million move from Real Madrid to United and he has stressed he was eager to move to Old Trafford when the offer came his way. "There was never any contact anywhere else," Di Maria told reporters at a Premier League Kicks event. "The people who came with all the paperwork, signed and ready, showing real eagerness to sign me were United. As soon as I heard of their interest, there was no question of me going an ...

MOUNTING INJURY CRISIS AND RISING HOPE OF RETURN OF PLAYERS IN OLD TRAFFORD. The wish and expectation of Manchester United club and its fan is the quick recovery and return of the trio of Wayne Rooney, Radamel Falcao and Phil Jones to the team. The high hope is most expected now, especially as the Red Devils look forward to the crucial clash with their arch rival, Manchester City on Sunday. According to the Telegraph, the Red Devils skipper suffered a foot injury during training and was seen limping off the training ground. Rooney has just completed his three match ban following the red card he picked for lashing out against Stewart Downing during the game against West Ham United. The captain was expected to return to his club for the Manchester Derby, but is now doubtful after picking up the injury in training. Report has it that the Three Lions captain who attended a commercial event at Old Trafford was seen in considerable discomfort at the end of the occasion with the rest of the first-team members .. ...
Van Gaal : i have never seen a team and fans as this "Because we haven't had very good results, but they are supporting the team like they are at the top, as Chelsea are now", Van Gaal continued. "That's remarkable and I appreciate it very much." Van Gaal leads his Manchester United team against Chelsea later today, looking to take advantage of dropped points from top four rivals Manchester City and Liverpool yesterday. Chelsea are currently ten points clear of the Red Devils, but could see that gap cut to seven points if they lose at Old Trafford.
Chelsea take their unbeaten record to Old Trafford in an intriguing game which sees Manchester United come up against a side from last season’s top four for the first time under Louis Van Gaal. With a short trip to Manchester City and a game against Arsenal also on the horizon, this match begins a sequence which could define what the Red Devils achieve this season, and also reveal how - or indeed if - they can compete against the best that the Premier League has to offer. A record of 12 points from a possible 24 against sides they would all normally expect to beat on paper has made for a disappointing start, with the away form proving their biggest concern. Monday’s draw at West Bromwich Albion extended their wait for a victory on the road, in a game where they needed a late leveller despite dominating possession. With Angel Di Maria, Juan Mata and Robin Van Persie in the side, they can undoubtedly hurt Chelsea and provide a constant threat, but there are question marks over whether their defence can ...
GBAM!!! Everton manager Roberto Martinez has warned Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool that midfielder Ross Barkley, 20, is not for sale following reports of interest in the England international. United boss Louis Van Gaal is keeping a close eye on Dutch midfielder Daley Sinkgraven, 19, with Real Madrid, Liverpool and Barcelona rumoured to be looking at the Heerenveen player. In-form striker Saido Berahino, 21, will not be prised away from West Brom for less than £25m but that fee would not stop Liverpool making a bid for the England Under-21 star. Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has insisted that he has the final say on transfers at the Stadium of Light. Manchester United seem poised to play a lucrative friendly with Italian side AC Milan in Dubai towards the end of January, with the Old Trafford club keen to make up for the financial shortfall of failing to make this season's Champions League. David Moyes, sacked by United in April, is being lined up to replace Walter Mazzarri as Inter Mila ...
Premier League round-up Southampton moved into second place in the Premier League with a 1-0 win over Stoke City at St Mary's on a bad day for champions Manchester City. Although unable to match their goal-scoring exploits from the 8-0 win over Sunderland last weekend, Ronald Koeman's side secured three points thanks to a goal from Sadio Mane. Graziano Pelle was denied a second goal by the crossbar but their stingy defence held on well and the points allowed them to leapfrog Manchester City - they are now sitting three points behind Chelsea who take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday. City were beaten 2-1 by West Ham in the lunchtime kick-off, with Diafra Sakho continuing his fine scoring run as Sam Allardyce's side retained fourth place. Morgan Amalfitano gave the Hammers a 21st minute lead and Sakho scored in his sixth consecutive game to add to their lead with 15 minutes to go. David Silva responded two minutes later but West Ham's defence held off a series of attacks to secure the points a ...
How good is this more entertaining Chelsea team? . . . Chelsea romped to victory against Maribor on Tuesday night in their best European performance of the season. Their 6-0 win gives them the ascendancy in their group, despite drawing at home on the opening day. Chelsea are looking good and have won all but one of their eight Premier League games, opening up a five point lead over Manchester City in the process. On Tuesday night Sky’s pundits waxed lyrical about this Chelsea side, but how good are they? The major additions this summer were Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa. This was twofold. Firstly it turned Chelsea’s midfield into an elite one with Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas at the base, providing solidity, strength and with Fabregas a great deal of finesse and technique. The balance looked very good and both players have become incredibly dominant on the ball. Fabregas and Matic are both in the top five passers in the Premier League this season with 87 and 70 passes per game respectively. Last se ...

Everton host Aston Villa on Saturday at Goodison Park and will be looking to get back to winning ways after going down 2-1 to Manchester United last time out. That game at Old Trafford feels like months ago and there is nothing worse than going into an international break with a defeat – and Everton being Everton have an annoying habit of doing just that. Our latest loss came against an average United side and things might have been very different if it wasn’t for the excellence of De Gea between the home side’s sticks, but now we must look forward and move on to our next challenge which is a vital three points against Villa this weekend. Paul Lambert’s side travel to Goodison on the back on three defeats – to Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal respectively – and their last victory came when they last made the trip to Merseyside, winning 1-0 at the temple of doom across the park. On that particular afternoon the Villains put in an impressive performance and a solitary Agbonlahor (try saying ...

GBAM!!! Paris St-Germain are reportedly ready to capitalise on Raheem Sterling's contract hesitancy by offering the 19-year-old striker three times what he earns at Liverpool.

When Manchester United paid Arsenal £24 million for Robin Van Persie in August 2012, eyebrows were raised because of the Dutch striker's advancing years and checkered injury record. Not to mention the fact the Red Devils didn't appear to require another forward; they had more pressing concerns, such as recruiting a new top-class central midfielder, after all. Ferguson wouldn't usually have given the green light to such a deal - but Van Persie was the Premier League's best striker at the time and Manchester United had been beaten to the title months earlier by local rivals Manchester City by virtue of goal difference. Keen to make sure that wouldn't happen again, and knowing this would be his final season in charge of the Red Devils, Ferguson went all in and brought Van Persie to Old Trafford - fully aware, surely, that within a few seasons the striker would have entered the early stages of decline. Van Persie enjoyed dream debut campaign Van Persie enjoyed a magnificent debut campaign with Manchester Uni ...

The odds were stacked against the visitors who had not even scored at Manchester City in the Premier League By contrast, Manuel Pellegrini's men had failed to hit the net in just one of their last 70 home matches and the Chilean started with Sergio Aguero, who had taken just 23 seconds to score off the bench against Liverpool, up front. The Potters had failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 12 league matches but a resolute performance from Hughes's side saw them do just that and Diouf's second-half strike capped a . ...
English Premier League 2014/15 SEASON BEGINS No fixture is considered easy as the English Premier League kicks off today with 20-time champions Manchester United facing Swansea City and Arsenal hosting CrystalPalace in a London derby. Both United and Arsenal will be in the spotlight for the most part of the season following their dramatic campaigns last season. United, who were aiming to defend the title they won in the 2012-13 season, had flopped under manager David Moyes and had finished the season 7th in the log, a position that was as strange to the Red Devils as falling to their ‘noisy’ neighbours twice in the season; the second being a 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford. Arsenal also had one of their most embarrassing campaigns in recent time, losing on wide margins to Liverpool and Manchester City, and finishing fourth, again, after staying atop the league for most weeks of the season. Unlike how Arsenal started the league last season when they lost 3-1 to Aston Villa, they are favourites to win today ...
Who will finish where in the Premier League? 13 August 2014 Updated 07:00 By Phil McNulty - Chief football writer, BBC Sport The battle for Champions League places - and relegation - scrap promise to be more competitive than ever Louis Van Gaal has arrived at Old Trafford, Luis Suarez has left Anfield, and Manchester City and Chelsea have spent big again - so with the new Premier League season just days away from kick-off, here are my predictions for where each team will finish. The selection of Chelsea as champions is made with some conviction after manager Jose Mourinho's summer in the transfer market - but choosing who will fill the other Champions League places has never been more difficult. So much so that the eventual finishing positions of those in contention - assuming champions Manchester City finish in the top two - may well come down to the deals done by Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal before the transfer window closes at the end of August. At this stage you would hesitate to risk a pe ...
Phil Neville: Van Gaal CAN WIN TITLE FOR MAN U AFTER MOYES 'DISASTER'. Phil Neville has accepted his share of responsibility for Manchester United's disastrous 2013-14 Premier League campaign under former boss David Moyes but expects the club to bounce back and win the title under new coach Louis Van Gaal. Neville, who confirmed midweek he would not be working at Old Trafford in 2014-15, was on Moyes's coaching staff as United finished seventh in the standings - 22 points adrift of champions and arch-rivals Manchester City. Moyes paid the ultimate price for United's failure after he was sacked in May but Neville said the Scot was not the only man at fault for the club's poor performances. "I was involved last year and last year was an absolute disaster," he said. "It was an absolute disaster from start to finish we must all take responsibility, not just David Moyes. I take responsibility and so does everyone involved." Van Gaal has since taken charge, guiding the club to five consecutive pre-season wins o ...

Goodbye Eto'o Football Club today bids farewell to Samuel Eto'o whose contract is now at an end. Eto'o spent one season at Stamford Bridge and true to his illustrious career as one of the great strikers in world football, provided some of the most memorable moments of 2013/14 with his goals, often important opening strikes including in big games against Arsenal and Tottenham, and against Manchester United when he became just the third Chelsea player to score a hat-track against the Old Trafford outfit. He signed on a one-year deal from Anzhi Makhachkala last August, making his debut at Everton and scoring his first Chelsea goal in a 4-1 win over Cardiff City, taking an Eden Hazard pass in his stride, jinking past Steven Caulker and firing low past David Marshall. It was another important contribution, giving his team a 2-1 lead, and Eto'o's formidable history in the Champions League continued with his first goals for us in that competition soon followed, a brace in a 3-0 win against Schalke, before he net ...

Jose Mourinho is not going to be happy There is always at least one manager among the title contenders who feels the Premier League fixture computer has conspired against him and if there was a betting market on who that manager would be then Jose Mourinho would be odds on favourite.

Revealed: Why Man Utd Turned Down Chance To Sign Cesc Fabregas New Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal elected against bringing Cesc Fabregas to Old Trafford as his first Red Devils signing. Here's why. Manchester United's new boss Louis Van Gaal reportedly pulled out of the chase for Chelseas new signing Cesc Fabregas this summer as he felt that he already had a similar player to the Spanish ace in the form of his compatriot Juan Mata, who also happens to be a couple of years younger than the ex-Barca man. Manchester Uniteds last boss David Moyes had Fabregas firmly on his wish list but the fact that he succeeded with a club record £37 million deal for Juan Mata in the winter ended interest of the English giants in Fabregas. The Daily Star reports that Man United are instead keen on recruiting a steely midfielder as opposed to a playmaker this term, and are also strengthening their defence significantly from last term.

Cardiff and Fulham have been relegated from the Premier League following their respective defeats to Newcastle and Stoke on Saturday afternoon. Results elsewhere saw Sunderland secure an unlikely victory at Old Trafford, meaning Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, who lost 3-0 at Newcastle, will return to the Championship after just one season in the top flight. Despite starting the campaign brightly under Malky Mackay, defeating Manchester City in front of their home fans, eccentric owner Vincent Tan saw fit to replace the Scot with Solskjaer.

So it looks like David Moyes is going to be leaving Old Trafford with a £4,000,000 pay off. And then there's the bonuses from Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea.
Moyes absurd statements that he should never have uttered. 1. AGAINST NEWCASTLE: Quite simply, David Moyes did not speak like a Manchester United manager. Where Sir Alex Ferguson once dubbed Newcastle United a "wee club in the northeast," Moyes seemed fearful of a side that had not won at Old Trafford in 41 years. Ahead of Alan Pardew's visit in December (to the home of the champions, no less) Moyes said he would try and "make it difficult" for Newcastle. In so doing, it showed that he continually struggled to shake the shackles that defined his Everton tenure -- that of the feisty underdog. 2. AGAINST CARDIFF: Following a damaging 2-2 draw at Cardiff in November, Moyes laughably claimed that he would have taken a point at the newly promoted side if he was offered it before kickoff. A point. Against a newly promoted side in the grip of damaging boardroom unrest. 3. AFTER CITY GAME: But perhaps the most damning public statement arrived when Manchester City wiped the floor with Moyes' United at Old Trafford ...

Liverpool have the quality and the nerve to hold on to first place Brendan Rodgers can play down talk of a 19th league championship all he likes, the final whistle sparked a title celebration in all but name from Liverpool. The manager's reaction to Philippe Coutinho's late winner – bounding on to the pitch in the manner of Brian Kidd and Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford in 1993 – was also a giveaway. Steven Gerrard led delirious scenes on the Anfield pitch as soon as referee Mark Clattenburg called time on a pulsating encounter. His side's first half performance justified their place at the Premier League summit both in terms of the quality of Liverpool's attacking play and the relentless pressing that halted Manchester City at every turn. In the second half, when City showed class and character in abundance, Liverpool held their nerve while the rest of Anfield was losing theirs to dig in and find their cutting edge once more. The only negative for Liverpool was the late red card for Jordan Henderson fo ...

I'm not gonna start embarrassing myself shouting 'come on city' because I won't let that happen but I definitely know which way I'd rather see the points go today... IN MOYES WE TRUST!

The Bundesliga giants quickly affirmed their status as Europe’s standout team with some indomitable performances in the group stages, most notably in the 3-1 away victory at Manchester City, but they have been struggling to live up to the high expectations in the knockout stages. After failing to impress against Arsenal in the round of 16, they were caused even more problems in the quarter-finals by a Manchester United side at their lowest ebb for a quarter of a century. Pep Guardiola’s men came away from Old Trafford with a hard-fought 1-1 draw in the first leg and fared li ...
Moyes takes another hit in the gut from his own team as Manchester United’s dreams of a fairy tale ending to the season lasted less than a minute as they crashed out of the European Champions League, conceding the lead whilst still celebrating their only goal of the game. United’s season is not only over but is in tatters, having already lost ten times this season in the Premier League whilst conceding seven goals losing both home and way to Manchester City. United tonight exit Europe, a place where they will not be playing competitive football again for years to come. David Moyes said he was delighted with United’s performance and conceding only three goals tonight was a big improvement showing United's resurgence is on track, which will be confirmed when they hope to beat relegation candidates Norwich at Old Trafford on the 26th April.

Bayern boss Pep Guardiola also shuffled his pack for his team's last outing, but the the German champions slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Augsberg, which ended their 53-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer shrugged the result off, saying: "It's all about Wednesday and the match against Manchester United. Nothing else matters," but his side are now without a win in three outings. They have also failed to beat English opposition on home soil this season, losing to Manchester City and drawing wi ...
Toni Kroos has told Bayern Munich he is keen to join Manchester United in a £40m deal. Liverpool have moved to dispel suggestions that Steven Gerrard is close to signing a new two-year deal. Manchester United had scouts over the weekend watching Fiorentina's Juan Cuadrado. Barcelona remain convinced they will still be able to sign players this summer as they work on their appeal against the FIFA-imposed transfer ban. Manchester City have held talks with Sergio Aguero to underline their desire to keep him well beyond this summer. Wigan and Crystal Palace are eyeing Brondby striker Simon Makienok, who has netted eight goals in 17 league games this term.

So, Manchester United salvage some much-needed pride after a disappointing domestic campaign by holding European champions Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. What did we learn from their performance? Why can't David Moyes's team produce that level of display on the Premier League stage? Can United stop the Bayern juggernaut in the return leg in Munich on 9 April? It was hardly a classic performance from Manchester United, but it was of rare vintage compared to the surrender offered up in the face of Liverpool and Manchester City. The reigning champions were given a full-on fight and for a few brief minutes Old Trafford held its breath in the hope that United might even take a lead to Germany when Nemanja Vidic headed them in front just before the hour. The sight of Bayern coach Pep Guardiola, usually cool elegance personified, stalking his technical area in frustration, was a tribute to United's doggedness and organisation as well as Bayern's own failure, at times bordering on a point-blank refu ...
Manchester United manager David Moyes is confident his team will be able to cope with Bayern Munich in Tuesday's UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford. United beat Aston Villa 4-1 at home on Saturday, but their previous two Premier League matches at Old Trafford saw them lose 3-0 to both Liverpool and Manchester City.
Man Utd eyeing Carlo Ancelotti as David Moyes' replacement : Manchester United board have been reportedly eyeing up former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti as a contender for the club boss if they decide that the current boss David Moyes has to go. The United board is currently weighing up options they have for the summer should the members decide that Moyes has to leave Old Trafford. According to the Daily Star, Borrusia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp, along with Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone, is also in the running to succeed Moyes at United. Moyes is reportedly under-fire from United fans as big concerns were again raised about the Scot's ability to motivate the club's dressing room following the club's derby crushing at home to Manchester City. If United suffers another loss in front of their increasingly unhappy fans when they host Bayern Munich on Tuesday, it will be the final nail in Moyes' coffin, the report added.
Manchester United 4-1 Aston Villa: Rooney & Mata inspire comeback win The striker scored twice before half-time to cancel out Ashley Westwood's opener before the January signing scored his first goal for the team and Chicharito added a late fourth Mar 29, 2014 2:36:00 PM Manchester United ended a week of frustration on and off the pitch in fine fashion by beating Aston Villa 4-1 on Saturday. Much of the game's build-up had been dominated by a planned protest against David Moyes' management of the struggling champions, with a plane trailing the message 'Wrong One - Moyes Out' flown above Old Trafford during the contest. A midweek defeat to local rivals Manchester City was the latest of United's setbacks in a tough season, tipping some fans over the edge. And the
David Moyes says even Sir Alex Ferguson would have had difficulty making Manchester United competitive this season. United have endured a nightmare first season under Moyes, trailing leaders Chelsea by 18 points and ­guaranteed their lowest-ever Premier League points total. They have suffered consecutive 3-0 home Premier League defeats to arch-rivals Liverpool and Manchester City, with supporters turning against Moyes. A section of angry United fans have hired a plane to fly over Old Trafford at today’s game against Aston Villa with a banner calling for his head. But the under-fire Moyes said even Ferguson – who led United to an 11-point title win last season – would have found it hard to triumph this term. “If Sir Alex was here this year it would be difficult for him as well, and he would be aware of that,” said Moyes. “People are aware that there was a squad that was ageing, so it would be a tough season for whoever was in charge this season. “There’s been a change from a great manager, ...

Marouane Fellaini under investigation by FA over 'spitting' claims Manchester United midfielder could face three-game ban Follows clash with Pablo Zabaleta during Manchester Derby Marouane Fellaini is booked after clashing with Pablo Zabaleta during the Manchester Derby. Marouane Fellaini's problematic first season as a Manchester United player has taken another turn for the worse after it emerged he is being investigated by the Football Association for a possible spitting offence against the Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta. The FA are reviewing footage from City's 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford to establish whether Fellaini spat at Zabaleta in the aftermath of elbowing his opponent to the ground. Zabaleta was lying on the floor when the follow-up incident allegedly took place and the FA have seen footage, shot from behind Fellaini, that appears to incriminate the Former Everton midfielder.

Man Utd considering Moyes replacements? Speculation grows that the club have been looking at potential candidates for several weeks as part of wide-ranging discussions aimed at turning around their recent struggles Mar 26, 2014 11:15:00 PM EXCLUSIVE By Duncan Castles Manchester United's senior hierarchy is “evaluating all possibilities” as it attempts to arrest the club's steep descent under David Moyes . Contrary to public statements that Sir Alex Ferguson's successor will definitely be granted at least a second season as manager, Moyes' dismissal is prominent among those possibilities. Though Tuesday's humiliating 3-0 home loss to Manchester City ensured that United's first post- Ferguson season is statistically the club's worst in the Premier League era, the review of potential candidates to replace Moyes should not be regarded as a knee-jerk reaction. It is thought that key decision-makers within Old Trafford have been assessing potential replacements as manager for several weeks and further talks ...

A Manchester United fan severely criticizes and guns David Moyes after last night's derby defeat against Manchester City at Old Trafford.
THE GINGER NINJA TURNED PUNDIT!! Manchester United’s performance may have been disastrous on the pitch during their derby humiliation at the hands of Manchester City – but at least one ex player put in a star turn on Tuesday night. Paul Scholes, who retired last summer along with Sir Alex Ferguson, was a surprise choice of Sky Sports pundit for the match at Old Trafford last night as the notoriously shy former midfielder made the rarest of appearances in front of the TV cameras. Scholes was famous for being camera shy during his playing career, rarely giving interviews and, when he did, looking extremely uncomfortable in the media glare as he kept his opinions to himself and made minimal noise. However, following in the footsteps of former team- mate Gary Neville – now regarded as the best football pundit going – Scholes made a big impression on Sky as he let loose on the failings of his former club, and old rivals Arsenal. Scholes limbered up with a precise dissection of the problems affecting Da ...

Manchester City trimmed the gap to Premier League leader Chelsea to three points by embarrassing fierce rival Manchester United in a 3-0 win at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
Manchester United supporters took their anger out on Sir Alex Ferguson after Tuesday's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City. type:image END# - Brewin: Blue day at Old Trafford - Okwonga: Derby disappointment - Palmer: Three Things After the match, angry fans yelled expletives at the former United manager as well as David Moyes, his handpicked successor, according to multiple reports. Stadium stewards also had to be deployed to prevent supporters from tearing down a banner honouring Moyes as "The Chosen One." Ferguson retired last season and chose Moyes to take over the club that he led to 13 Premier League titles in 26 season. United are currently in seventh with 51 points, and an emphatic defeat to their cross-town rivals -- their 10th league loss of the season -- was apparently too much for some fans to take. Tuesday's defeat ensured United will finish with their lowest point total of the Premier League era. Stewards had to pull one fan away from Moyes' seat in the dug-out, according to The Telegraph.

Manchester United 0-3 Manchester City: match report If there was ever such a moment that has summed up David Moyes tenure so far at Old Trafford the first forty seconds of tonight's match proved it. Manchester City rolled into the red side of Manchester hoping to curtail the apparent turn in fortunes for the Red Devils. After cruising to a 5-0 victory over Fulham, City picked an almost full strength side for the derby. Apart from the exceptional Sergio Aguero - who was replaced by the night's hero Edin Dzeko - City were at full throttle. Manchester United set their stall to pack the midfield in order to deal with the strength of Yaya Toure and Fernandinho. Marouane Fellaini, Tom Cleverley and Micheal Carrick were tasked with this job. Around Old Trafford the fear was evident around the 70,000 plus Red's fans. The 3 or 4 thousands Blues fan's sensed this and were looking for United blood. Home form was the problem all season and from the off the alarm bells were ringing. From centre City were on the offens ...

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini admits they are still working to establish themselves as one of the top sides in Europe and the best in their home city. City have emerged from the shadow of United and have the chance to do the double over them with victory at Old Trafford tonight. But Pellegrini has been keen to pay due respect to United ahead of the clash, insisting they must progress further in order to establish themselves as a major force on a consistent basis. "I think this club has been trying to work in the last four years to reduce the difference we have against important teams - against Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, and in Europe as well," he said. "It is always important because when you have two important teams from the same city you always want to be the best team. "But we are not just fighting against Manchester United and in some ways it doesn't matter." The Chilean was also keen to explain previous comments where he appeared to suggest City were now the dominant force in ...
This season may not have gone to plan at Old Trafford for David Moyes, but Tuesday night's Manchester Derby gives United the chance to restore some pride and claim the bragging rights until next season. But in order to do that, the champions will need to overcome a Manchester City side who have overwhelmed a host of Premier League sides this season. Manuel Pellegrini has enviable quality at his disposal in a number of areas and, as a result, the Etihad Stadium outfit dominate our combined Manchester Derby XI. Nevertheless, our goalkeeper comes from the red side of the Manchester divide. David De Gea has conceded more goals than Joe Hart this season, but has been called into action more often, featuring in more games and making more saves than the England No.1, who came in for scrutiny earlier in the seaso At right-back, the ever-dependable Pablo Zabaleta gets the nod ahead of Rafael after another season of consistent performances.

Manchester United's David Moyes has a £100 million transfer bounty burning a hole in his pocket, per Mark Ogden of The Telegraph, and with news of a six-week injury lay-off for star striker Robin Van Persie, the summer transfer window can't come soon enough. Much has already been made of the current United squad being one inherited from Sir Alex Ferguson, and former Manchester City manager Joe Royle was just one pundit to come out in support of Moyes, via the Alan Brazil Breakfast Show on talkSPORT. Clearly Moyes will be keen to stamp his own mark at Old Trafford via his summer transfer dealings and one player who has been interesting the Scot has been Borussia Dortmund's exciting Marco Reus, per Matthew Nash of Metro.
Football - Moyes: Rooney strike is derby boost Manchester United manager David Moyes claims his players will carry "vital belief" into Tuesday night's derby after Wayne Rooney's wonder strike set up victory at West Ham. PA Sport Report – 21 minutes ago Rooney's 58-yard goal spurred United to a 2-0 Premier League victory at Upton Park, and title-chasing Manchester City are next up for Moyes and his men at Old Trafford. The 28-year-old's eighth-minute opener evoked memories of Beckham's famous halfway-line lob against Wimbledon. Former England captain Beckham was a conspicuous face in the crowd as Rooney mimicked his long-range effort from that 3-0 Wimbledon victory back on August 17, 1996. Beckham's wry smile spoke volumes of Rooney's immediate contender for goal of the season, and United manager Moyes suggested the strike can breathe confidence through his revitalised Red Devils. "It was a great goal by a top, top player: technical ability, and awareness to know exact where the goalkeeper was," said Moy ...
The final score of 6-0 matched 2011's 8-2 defeat at Old Trafford as Wenger's worst ever. What ought to have been a day of celebration ended as one of shame and humiliation. The combined aggregate score for Arsenal's three trips to Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea now stands at 18 goals to four. Once again Arsenal failed to turn up for a big game on a Saturday lunchtime. Questions must be asked of the players, who performed well below their usual standards. However, there also inevitably will be a huge focus on the manager. He is ultimately responsible for preparing and organising his team, and they appeared to be in chaos from the very first minute. Of Wenger's 1000 games in charge, few can have been more painful than this.
Four key games Manchester United’s Robin Van Persie will miss through injury Manchester United v Manchester City (Tuesday March 25) Tuesday’s Manchester Derby will see both Van Persie and City’s Sergio Aguero missing through injury. It is a match David Moyes and his players will be desperate to win to make amends for heir 4-1 defeat to their local rivals earlier in the season, as well as the 3-0 humiliation by Liverpool last weekend. Manchester United v Bayern Munich (Tuesday April 1) The home leg of this tough tie could prove crucial for United, who look as though they will need to win this year’s Champions League to qualify for next season’s competition. Bayern Munich v Manchester United (Wednesday April 9) Van Persie is also set to miss the away leg against the reigning European champions, which takes place just a week after they meet at Old Trafford.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart will face no further action from the Football Association following his confrontation with Hull's George Boyd. England international Hart clashed foreheads with Hull substitute Boyd during a furious exchange in City's 2-0 Barclays Premier League win at the KC Stadium on Saturday. Hart was booked by referee Lee Mason for his involvement and the FA has confirmed that - in line with the governing body's own rules - it considers the goalkeeper to have been dealt with. The FA, however, is still to make a decision on Boyd after pictures appeared to show the Scot spitting in Hart's direction. The FA is studying Mason's report before determining whether to take further action, although Hart said after the game he did not feel he had been spat at by Boyd. The flashpoint occurred when Boyd was denied a penalty after claiming to have been fouled by Hart. It has also not yet been decided whether City captain Vincent Kompany could face further disciplinary action for his reaction to ...
Diego Maradona thrust his "Hand Of God" into the air and smiled in approval. If there was a moment that confirmed Liverpool's right to be taken seriously as Premier League title contenders, this was it. The legendary Argentina World Cup winner, sharp suited and sporting deafeningly loud ear-rings, was in attendance in Old Trafford's directors' box on a day of huge and contrasting significance for Manchester United and Liverpool. And Maradona, looking like a well-dressed pirate, will have savoured the quality in Liverpool's display on a day when the secret was well and truly out. Manager Brendan Rodgers, in the shadow of Chelsea and Manchester City, has shaped a side that can win their first title since 1990. Maradona will have appreciated the movement and menace of his fellow South American Luis Suarez, whose partnership with Daniel Sturridge shone a harsh light on the seemingly dysfunctional footballing relationship between Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie. The Argentine will have noted the relentless w ...
the story would be about them first and Liverpool second. Whether the deficiencies are with the manager David Moyes or in the minds of the players no longer matters. There is only one way this appointment is going to turn out. Moyes has had fair backing from the Stretford End faithful who defiantly belted out "20 times Man United" long after the final whistle and even on the trams back into town from Exchange Quay. The patience now, however, is about to be severely tested. Had United turned Liverpool over and gone on to beat Olympiakos and Manchester City then the season, and by extension Moyes' stewardship, would have looked all the rosier. After this dispiriting home defeat, the games against Olympiakos and City are being approached with United fans watching from between their fingers. The Liverpool match might not have been the final nail in the Moyes coffin but it felt like the first. Being at Old Trafford these days is an unpredictable business. 18 points have been snaffled by visiting teams this sea ...
England Posted on March 17, 2014 by john Gerrard: We are genuine contenders(PA) Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is adamant they are genuine title contenders and while Manager Brendan Rodgers insists he is not losing sleep over it he is happy to be bracketed with Chelsea and Manchester City for the run-in. The Reds recorded their first victory at Old Trafford since 2009 – and only their 16th league win on the ground in 118 years – with a comfortable 3-0 triumph over Manchester United.
Pragmatism, Moyes’ backers would argue. But it was a backwards step that contrasts with, for example, Sir Alex Ferguson’s decision to bring on Javier Hernandez for Nani when two goals and a man down to Manchester City at Old Trafford in 2011. United were punished 6-1 but Ferguson felt duty bound as Manchester United manager to chase the game regardless of the circumstances. By comparison, Moyes feels like a realist working at a dream factory.

ON THIS DAY . 73 years ago (March 11 1941) Old Trafford was bombed by the German Luftwaffe. The stadium was a mess and couldn't be used. During the reconstruction of the stadium, Manchester United played their "home" games at Maine Road, the home of their cross-town rivals, Manchester City, at a cost of £5,000 a year plus a percentage of the gate receipts. The club was now £15,000 in debt, not helped by the rental of Maine Road, and the Labour MP for Stoke, Ellis Smith, petitioned the Government to increase the club's compensation package, but it was in vain. It took almost 9 years to revive the Old Trafford return. United's first game back at Old Trafford was played on (24 August 1949) ,as 41,748 spectators witnessed a 3–0 victory over Bolton Wanderers. Old Trafford
is confident of beating Liverpool and Manchester City when both local rivals visit Old Trafford.
The FA Cup semi-finals will see Sky Bet League One side Sheffield United play Hull City, while holders Wigan Athletic will take on Arsenal after their shock victory at Manchester City. Sheffield United, who beat Charlton 2-0 in their quarter-final at Bramall Lane on Sunday, last played at the semi-final stage of the competition in 2003 when they lost 1-0 to Arsenal at Old Trafford. Hull, 3-0 victors over Premier League rivals Sunderland, have not played in an FA Cup semi-final since 1930. Tigers manager Steve Bruce will be taking nothing for granted in the Yorkshire derby against the Blades at Wembley. "It's a great draw," he said. "Sheffield United have had a wonderful run and they've beaten every team in front of them so it's never going to be easy but you've got to be honest and I'm sure Sheffield United were the same as us - you just want to avoid the big boys.

Sir Alex Ferguson has backed David Moyes to turn Manchester United's dismal run of form around and become a success at Old Trafford if he is given the time. "They [United] will be all right," Ferguson, speaking in Los Angeles at a party thrown by British Consul-General Chris O'Connor, said in quotes reported by the Daily Telegraph ahead of Sunday's Oscars. "It's early days and there have been a lot of changes. He [Moyes] needs time. I was there for 27 years, so with a new manager, it takes time. But they'll be OK." Moyes retains the support of the club's owners, the Glazer family, and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, and has been promised significant funds to strengthen his squad in the summer. However following next Saturday's trip to The Hawthorns to face West Brom, United embark on what could be a crucial run of three home games in nine days against Liverpool, Olympiakos and Manchester City.
VALDES TO JOIN CITY IN SUMMER? Well, this one has rather come out of nowhere, but the Daily Star this morning report that Manchester City have moved to the front of the queue to sign Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes when he leaves the Camp Nou this summer. We had assumed that the goalkeeper would join Monaco, and the principality certainly seemed like Vlades' likely destination, but the paper claim that the goalkeeper has failed to sign the pre-contract agreement needed to confirm the deal. Whether signing a 32-year-old who would presumably have designs on being the no.1 at the Etihad when Joe Hart is back demonstrating close to his best form is a good idea, we'll let you decide. We're unconvinced. But what's this to seal the deal? A quote from Pellegrini to confirm interest? Well, not really. "He's not in our thoughts right now." Ah. KAGAWA INTERESTS BESIKTAS We tend to think that whilst Shinji Kagawa has largely failed to impress during his time at Old Trafford, he is still capable of doing a pretty f ...

CHELSEA SEEK SILVER LINING AFTER FA CUP EXIT Following on from their rather tame FA Cup exit on Saturday, Chelsea can now train their focus on the two trophies that remain available to them this season. A possible, if highly unlikely, treble has now been ruled out, which is disappointing not least due to the bond that the club have forged with the oldest football competition in the world over the past 17 years. On six occasions during that period a Chelsea captain has climbed the steps of Wembley Stadium -- both old and new -- to receive the hallowed piece of silverware to accompany the one that was lifted at Old Trafford courtesy of a replay in 1970. It will be another 15 months at least before Chelsea can add an eighth FA Cup to their roll of honour. Elimination from the tournament at the hands and home of Manchester City is no disgrace whatsoever, although considering the strong lineup selected by Jose Mourinho, the expectation was raised that the Citizens would be given a run for their money There was ...

David Moyes managed to pull off the shock of the month by signing Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata in a £37.1m deal, and whilst many left backs and central midfielders have been linked with moves to Old Trafford, it seems Moyes is looking to add another centre back to his ranks before the deadline. Porto could be about to lose both of their starting centre halves, with Eliaquim Mangala interesting United's cross-city rivals Manchester City, but seem willing to let Otamendi leave the club after the Argentine international saw a proposed loan move to Valencia fall through earlier this week. A £20m fee was suggested at that time, and Moyes is clearly hoping to grab himself a bargain with their £12.3m offer for the former Velez Sarsfield man. Otamendi displays a good reading of the game alongside decent pace and aerial ability, despite being only just over 6ft tall. article continues below But with Otamendi's arrival possibly set for completion on Friday, where does this leave the other Manchester United centre ...

Why Man Utd is worse off than you think 01 Oct 2013 10:10:57 Sunday Oliseh If there was ever a time when Manchester United Fans should be dead worried about the health of their beloved club, it is now. The alarm bell rang as they lost to Manchester City in a manner that lacked total team cohesion and spirit, short of Wayne Rooney. The alarm bells now rang again with a more alarming defeat to relatively low West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford of all places! So, six games into the current campaign Man United are in 12th position on the league table, seven points (three games) behind league leaders Arsenal. Experts say losing in sports is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact you cannot succeed if you do not lose and learn from your defeat(s). However, the manner you lose and to whom you lose tells a lot as you go forward. This is one major cause of pessimism for any true Man United fan or football analyst WHAT IS BEHIND THIS FREE FALL? If you are a Man United fan, here are some reasons why I feel you should ...
Nice find chelsea. google - Rag A derogatory term for fans of the Manchester United Football Club used only by fans of Manchester City. The term originated in WWII, when Old Trafford suffered damage as a result of German bombing, and United were temporarily forced to play at Manchester City's grounds, which had suffered no damage on account of being such a shambles that German bomber pilots assumed that they'd already gotten it, and refers to homeless people, as in "homeless rags". It is assumed that most Manchester City fans are too stupid and/or too insensitive to realize the disgraceful implied mockery of the tens of thousands of Britons forced out of their homes as a result of the bombing campaigns. Manchester City fans still use this term despite the fact that Old Trafford was repaired decades ago, and is currently the largest club stadium in England, whereas they have trouble filling the seats in their much smaller, publicly-funded stadium at Eastlands 'Kin rags. I'd punch every last rag out if ther ...
Balague revealed on Revista de La Liga: "The idea is that Mata, who Chelsea are happy to let go, goes to Old Trafford in this transfer window. "I am under the impression that a deal will be reached because it benefits everybody. "United need quality, Mata needs to get out of the situation he is in and it would reinforce United for their meetings with (Chelsea's title rivals) Manchester City and Arsenal, which is clever from Jose Mourinho." What are your thoughts regarding this? Is it José's mind games to give MCFC and AFC tough time or it's
In the six months since David Moyes's arrival at Old Trafford the 50-year-old has been through the full gamut of managerial emotions. The joy of winning the Community Shield in his first game; the satisfaction of keeping hold of Wayne Rooney after a turbulent summer; the pride in beating league leaders Arsenal at Old Trafford and thrashing Bayer Leverkusen; but also the frustration of missing out on a host of transfer targets; the embarrassment of a hiding at rivals Manchester City; the pain of home defeats to West Brom, Tottenham, Newcastle and Everton and the disappointment of cup defeats to Sunderland and Swansea. But today has the possibility to add more depth to Moyes' debut season. His side could face a heavy defeat against an in-form Chelsea keen to prove a point and strengthen their own title ambitions. On the other hand, against the odds, Moyes could lead his side to a huge win at Stamford Bridge which would leave the bookmakers, critics and pundits in a state of shock. Which will it be? We will ...
Manchester United: Robbie Savage says 12 players should go By Robbie Savage BBC football pundit Manchester United must spend £200m if they are to rebuild their squad to the standard that once made sides visiting Old Trafford feel helpless. United lost for the third time in a row with defeat at Sunderland on Tuesday and I think as many as 12 of the 27 players who regularly feature for them are now on borrowed time. Blunt United Wayne Rooney tops the Premier League's assist-makers this season but he is the only United player in the top 40. Manchester City, meanwhile, have eight players on the same list The players are getting shot at by people like me, but they should look at themselves. Are they running hard enough? Are they tackling hard enough? Are they putting the same effort in as they did for Sir Alex Ferguson? These are the questions I'd like to ask them, because they do not seem to be. The fear factor I had to deal with at Old Trafford when the likes of Roy Keane, Paul Scholes and David Beckham wer ...
Manchester United play Swansea City at Old Trafford again next week in the Premier League.
Bank Street football club, known for a time as Bank Lane, was a multi-purpose stadium in Clayton, Greater Manchester, England. It was used mostly for football matches and was the second home ground for Manchester United Football Club (known as Newton Heath Football Club when they took up tenancy), following North Road, which they left in 1893. The stadium had an eventual capacity of around 50,000 spectators, but the club moved to Old Trafford in 1910 because club owner John Henry Davies believed he could not sufficiently expand the ground to his liking. The stadium was in poor repair towards the end of its life and, shortly after the club moved out to Old Trafford, the main stand at Bank Street blew down in a storm. The site is now occupied by the car park of the Manchester Velodrome, with a plaque on a house wall on Bank Street indicating the presence of the former ground.Coincidentally, this site is very close to the City of Manchester Stadium, the current home of Manchester City

Manchester United: Title rivals will be nervous as momentum builds Manchester United did not make a complete case for normal service being resumed by beating Arsenal - but a glance at recent results and the Premier League table suggests the obituaries can stay locked in the drawer. The noise levels around Old Trafford, and the joy that greeted the final whistle, were an accurate measure of this game's significance to United and David Moyes. United needed three points to stop Arsenal extending their lead over them to difficult, if not quite impossible, proportions. Their still relatively new manager needed a victory in a game of such status after previous opportunities against Chelsea, Liverpool and -desperately and embarrassingly -Manchester City yielded only one point. And both duly arrived courtesy of Robin Van Persie's soaring 27th minute header from Wayne Rooney's corner. If the striker is, as Arsene Wenger suggests, still "an Arsenal man" then he has a funny way of showing it. Van Persie scored in bo ...
