For those of your were who busy sleeping last night, you missed a fantastic match. Manchester United beat the MLS All-Stars, with Chicharito netting his debut goal. All other news involves Sir Alex; he’s defended the Glazers, once again backed the youth, and given some advice to his future successor.

For those of you who did stay up to watch the match, we have an obvious poll question today…

Tactically speaking; previewing the 2010/11 season

Posted on July 28, 2010  by Yolkie  in Man United, Players, Pre Season, Premier League   5 Comments »

Sir Alex Ferguson

We’ve done the squad introspective; we’ve done the group prediction; one of us had to put our particulars on the line and really risk their reputation. It’ll be no surprise for regular readers to know it’s Yolkie analysing the tactical expectations and predictions for the 2010/11 season. There’s no Eric Cantona style heralding of a new formation I’ve created, but expect to find plenty of things to disagree with..

A tactical analysis for a full season turned out to be a far more complicated task to structure than I first imagined as I wanted to cover all bases. If you’re here for a light read I advise you look away now; if you’re wanting to have a meaty discussion to whet your appetite ahead of the season then fill your boots.

The big news today is Javier Hernandez’s impending debut in Houston tonight. Also, David Gill continues to insists funds are available, Blackpool is set to miss out on Cleverly, and Sir Alex has his sights set on the “new Schmeichel.”

I know for some people, such as myself, the match tonight is on at a fairly reasonable time. However, those of you in Europe and other parts of the world where kickoff is at an unreasonable time, I want to see how many will stay up to see United’s newest player.

Houston Press “welcomes” Manchester United

Posted on July 27, 2010  by KDill_MUFC  in KDill_MUFC, Man United, Man United News, Press   10 Comments »

Ryan Giggs
Rarely does anything infuriate me to the point of writing about it; this is one of those rare exceptions. The Houston Press “welcomed” Manchester United to their city by publishing “Manchester United: Five Reasons To Hate Them.” As if the title wasn’t bad enough, the author proved he clearly lacks any form of credentials to be a journalist by making more than a few errors. He also proved how arrogant some people can be.

Manchester United monitoring Ozil & Benzema according to MEN

Posted on July 27, 2010  by Yolkie  in Man United, Premier League, Transfer Targets   18 Comments »

Karim Benzema

David Gill’s been talking again; saying Sir Alex Ferguson could yet dip into the transfer market before the August deadline if he so wishes. Manchester Evening News are interpreting it as one possible “world class” signing, but claim Fergie is monitoring the situations of both Mezut Ozil and Karim Benzema.

I’m back from Kansas City, which means I’m back to work on Stretty Stories. Today we have Sir Alex’s praising his scouts, Hargreaves facing exclusion from the squad, Defour possibly moving to United this summer, and a “snub” from a soon-to-be City player.

Manchester United in Kansas City: Exclusive Pictures

Posted on July 26, 2010  by KDill_MUFC  in KDill_MUFC, Man United, Pre Season   No Comments »

I was fortunate to get to see Manchester United play the Kansas City Wizards last night, and now I’m excited to share my photos with you. It was a really fun trip and amazing to finally see all my heroes play in person rather than on a television or computer screen. Unfortunately they lost to the Wizards, but that’s hardly worrying to lose a preseason match. Matches like these are all about getting fitness and letting some of a fringe players get some minutes on the field. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and hope you’ll enjoy the pictures.

And yes, I will be back tomorrow for Stretty Stories.

I’m leaving home at about 6:30am my time to drive to Kansas City in order to see the Manchester United match, but not before I compile all of today’s United news. Sadly, it’s actually a pretty slow day for news and there is only one story I can find worth reporting. Sir Alex confirmed Rio Ferdinand will be sidelined for six more weeks while also providing the status of other injured players. And for today’s fun fact, SkyBet has United has the favorites to sign Mesut Ozil.

Depending on the internet situation at my hotel, there may or may not be a Stretty Stories for Monday. If there isn’t one tomorrow, I promise I’ll make up for it with exclusive pictures from the match!
