Manchester United new kit deal with Adidas for 2015/16

German manufacturer Adidas will replace Nike, Manchester United’s current kit provider, at the start of next season – in what is the biggest kit deal of all time. This follows the news that Nike, the US sports manufacturer, had decided to opt out of continuing the relationship with Manchester United – a relationship that has been intact since taking over from Umbro at the turn of the century. The fee is reportedly to be £750 million, £40 million less than the Glazer family paid for the club back in 2005.

Manchester United draw Marseilles in Champions League draw

Heinze
Manchester United have drawn French side Olympique Marseilles in the second round of the Champions League. United will play the first leg in France.

United and Marseilles have played each other twice, both times in the 1999/2000 season. The Red Devils won 2-1 while Marseilles won the return 1-0, with a certain serial tantrum artist scoring the goal.

Full reaction to follow.

Stop the sick chants against Arsene Wenger

Posted on December 13, 2010  by Stretford-end  in Announcements, Arsenal, Chants & Songs, Man United, Premier League, Press   4 Comments »

Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger

Stretford-End.com wishes to support Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s comments regarding the sick chants aimed at Arsene Wenger.

We acknowledge that our supporters are not the only ones to sing the chants but we have a responsibility as the best supporters in Britain to not sink to this level, and more importantly, show respect. There is a concern that singing the chants are becoming accepted and we as supporters have to make a stand against that and kick it out.

Will the cold weather give United a headache?

Bloomfield Road

United’s game against Blackpool tomorrow has been called off due to a frozen pitch at Bloomfield Road. There’s little doubt that this can be spun in both a positive and a negative way. I’ll assess the impacts of this postponement on United.
