Berbatov

AUTHOR: – Doron

I wanted to keep my nose out of this debate; it’s been discussed too many times now. With no live United football and an open domestic transfer window it’s being run again. Berbatov.

The New Breed – 2011 The Summer Of Change

The New Breed - 2011 The Summer Of Change

AUTHOR: – Bricki

The season is over and already we are looking to August and the start of the next journey. What shape are United in as we look ahead and what changes could or should be made to keep competing at the top of the table in the next 12 months?

With the retirements of Messrs Van Der Sar, Neville and Scholes it already looks to be the most important summer for United since 1995. Back then it was the sales of Ince, Hughes and Kanchelskis that had everyone writing the team off after the promotion of the class of 92.

What needs to be done in the next 8 weeks? Who’s going and coming? What youngsters will make the next big push for first team involvement?

Come May, the only number that mattered was 19. A record breaking Scouse-busting 19. However, in order to climb to the highest perch it’s taken a monumental team effort. To what extent is this represented by individual performance statistics though? Who, according to the numbers has been the stand out performer and who away from home has been a bad luck charm when included?!

George Best: A match going fan’s perspective

Posted on June 16, 2011  by Stretford-end  in Guest Writer, Legends, Man United, Players   46 Comments »

George Best

AUTHOR: – The Mancunian Red (Guest Blogger)

Probably the questions I most get asked – Did I watch George Best and who is my favourite player over the years. Many fans are surprised after hearing I watched Best over 100 times live and drool about his abilities that I then go with Robbo as my favourite ever red. George was my first hero, my first love if you like but my feelings towards him soured. I’m writing this article about Best because although thousands of articles have been written I personally do not feel they express my feelings as a fan or sum up the feelings of reds at the time he played and then in effect quit on us.
