Wayne Rooney

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes that Wayne Rooney will be fit to play against Bolton Wanderers tomorrow evening after concerns grew following the striker ‘limping’ after the 2-1 victory over Liverpool last weekend. Wayne Rooney has been in excellent form this season, scoring 33 goals so far in this campaign. There was a concern that Sir Alex Ferguson might rest Wayne Rooney with Bayern Munich next up on Tuesday night.

Luis Nani signs contract after great improvement

Luis Nani

Fair play to Nani, who was rewarded today with a four year deal after putting in some superb performances since returning to the starting lineup in January. I honestly thought, as i’m sure most of you did, that Nani was on his way in the transfer window. However, his performances against Arsenal and Liverpool were top class and the Portuguese winger was today rewarded with a four year contract, keeping him at the club until June 2014.

Nemanja Vidic shows his class against Fernando Torres

Posted on March 21, 2010  by Stretford-end  in Liverpool, Man United, Premier League, Tactics   6 Comments »

Nemanja Vidic
Wherever Nemanja Vidic ends up next season, there is no doubt we have been in the company of one of the best defenders in Europe over the past five years. Strong, commanding and brave – Vidic has become a fans favourite for his no nonsense approach and quality that he has shown alongside Rio Ferdinand. Both Ferdinand and Vidic have been dogged by injuries all season, but against Liverpool today they played in their fourth successive game this season – something Ferguson hasn’t been able to do all season. The press tried to bill Nemanja Vidic as a blundering fool when faced with the task of marking Fernando Torres – however he showed his class with a solid performance that demonstrated his importance to the side in the 2-1 victory over Liverpool.

Nani: Steven Gerrard needs to move to win a league title

Posted on March 20, 2010  by Stretford-end  in Liverpool, Man United, Man United News   No Comments »

Luis Nani

Since Steven Gerrard made his league debut in September 1998 he has failed to win a single Championship as he approaches his thirtieth year. Nani on the other hand has won two league titles since signing from Sporting Lisbon in 2007. Our Portuguese winger believes that the Liverpool captain should consider his options in the summer if he is serious about winning a League title, with Liverpool trailing in fifth, four points off Tottenham Hotspur. Gerrard was linked heavily with a move to Chelsea in 2005 and 2006 (both years the South Londoners won their two Premier League titles), however decided to stay with Liverpool.

Manchester United v Liverpool preview

Benitez and Ferguson

Manchester United versus Liverpool needs no subplot, on account of the rich successful history and the generally local proximity of both clubs. However, with United in the race for a record breaking 19th league title, the green and gold campaign, the recent centenary celebrations and the fact that Liverpool’s season long meltdown makes this game the only “Cup Final” they’re likely to reach this campaign, the ingredients are there for a real firecracker of a Premier League fixture.

Manchester United 2008 European Cup

We’ve won three European cups in 68, 99 and 2008 and reached the final last season. Today we find out who we will play in the Quarter finals and the 2010 Champions League begins to take shape. Barcelona favourites with the bookies, having brushed aside German side Stuttgart in the week, whilst Lyon will still be bouncing having knocked nine times European Champions Real Madrid out on their own turf. We have every reason to be confident that we can make it three finals in three years after the impressive display against Milan both home and away. So in the build up to the draw, which will be done live on the blog, we ask you – who do you want to face in the next round?

Wayne Rooney can surpass 42 goal Cristiano Ronaldo

Wayne Rooney

There has been a lot of discussion over the past few weeks regarding the potential goal scoring return from Wayne Rooney this season in comparison to that of his former team mate, Cristiano Ronaldo’s return in 2007/08. We discussed the possibility of such an achievement a couple of weeks ago when Rooney surpassed the total goals scored by Cristiano Ronaldo last season. I’m going to put my neck out and say that in our remaining games (potentially 14) Wayne Rooney will score thirteen goals – taking his goal tally up to a whopping 43 for the season (including community shield goal).

Wayne Rooney scores

Relentless, ruthless, Rooney – these were the three R’s that inspired Manchester United to a historic victory over grand European opponents AC Milan. It was a classic action packed European night at Old Trafford with many subplots; but it was United who triumphed with a massive 7-2 aggregate scoreline to progress to the Champions League quarter finals.
