Leaving Anfield in April 1992 after Manchester United had lost 2-0 to Liverpool, meaning Leeds had won the league whilst United had gone 25 years without a league title, I would never have predicted what would happen in the following 19 years. Season 2010-11 was another memorable one for Manchester United fans, with the club overtaking Liverpool to reach 19 league titles, to their 18 titles. In addition, the club reached another Champions League Final, which was to sadly end in defeat to Barcelona at Wembley. These are my awards for this great season: (More …)

I admit I’m a bit late in putting my awards selection together for two reasons I’m trying to extend the football season to suit myself and because I haven’t yet made up my mind who I will award each thing to! I’m hoping as I sit down to write this that it will all come together… here’s hoping! (More …)
Now I guess I’m a half full fan..the sort of fan that mixes all the joys of supporting Manchester United with all the fears that the common football fan possess as well. When will our time be up? When will we be ‘doing a Liverpool’?? It worries me…and that’s just because….IT DOES (and for no other reason)
So what’s there to worry about this season?
Top of the league. Progressing so far so good in Europe. Last 8 of the cup. Beaten only once in the league. Chelsea imploding. Liverpool as comical as ever. Does it get any BETTER?
Yet I cannot help but feel as a club we are sort of standing on the edge of a cliff….staring out into some kind of potential oblivion. This has nothing to do with the Glazers. And it has everything to do with how we’ve performed on the pitch. We are struggling away from Old Trafford like nothing I have seen for years. A trip to Wolves becomes a traumatic experience! And it is repeating itself. Over and over. (More …)
It’s been in the pipeline for a while. Ever since Fergie upset a few to skip a Carling Cup game to ‘go spy on Valencia…ahem!’ It was evident at the time that he was going to run the rule on David De Gea..especially as our goalkeeping coach accompanied him!
The news that De Gea could well be on his way to the Theatre of Dreams will be thoroughly welcomed by many of the Faithful. Edwin, though a magnificent servant that he has been, is well on his way to receiving his bus pass and extra winter fuel allowance. How his body has kept up with the rigours of English football is beyond me. So its time to pass the torch on very soon…
But is De Gea the right choice? (More …)
As the squad has landed ready for the pre- season tour of the US, my mind is totally over the World Cup (to be honest it was weeks ago, and not just because England crashed out) and back onto more important matters – Manchester United. There is much speculation among fans that due to the Glazer debt we cannot afford to do any transfer business for the new season. Sir Alex has come out and said there is no need for any business to be done and has reiterated that we have a good youth set-up coming through. (More …)
