PREMIER LEAGUE:TOTTENHAM VS MANCHESTER UNITED

Pogba influential in North London. A day to forget for the referee and Jose Mourinho. Spurs fortunate to be up 1-0 at the break through Son whose adjusted foul by Scot McTominay had the ref chop off Cavani’s would be opener. Spurs’ negative tactics invited United to come at the deep Tottenham defensive line. UnitedContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:TOTTENHAM VS MANCHESTER UNITED”

EUROPA LEAGUE:GRANADA VS MANCHESTER UNITED

The Red devils are taking the Europa League very seriously. They named virtually the same side that beat run away league leaders Manchester City a few weeks ago minus Fred. Pogba was very fortunate not to see red for his mistimed tackle after only seven minutes on Kenedy. It ticks the red card boxes, outContinue reading “EUROPA LEAGUE:GRANADA VS MANCHESTER UNITED”

FA CUP:LEICESTER CITY VS MANCHESTER UNITED

The foxes led by the in-form Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho deservedly put the Red Devils out of the FA Cup at the quarter final stage yesterday. Defensive mistakes cost United. Particularly the Fred error. Why play out from the back when it is really not on? Matic had a poor game in defensive midfield, wasContinue reading “FA CUP:LEICESTER CITY VS MANCHESTER UNITED”

EUROPA LEAGUE:MANCHESTER UNITED VS MILAN

Theoretically this was second best in Italy taking on second best in England although the second best in England is miles away from being the first.Nice touch but the Red Devils in allowing on loan full back Dalot to start against them. Milan were the better team in the first half, had goals from FranckContinue reading “EUROPA LEAGUE:MANCHESTER UNITED VS MILAN”

PREMIER LEAGUE:MANCHESTER CITY VS MANCHESTER UNITED

Pep must be wondering how on earth he can beat Ole at Etihad. The Norwegian now has won 3 straight games at the home of the incoming champions. His formula of counter attacking with speed seems to be the only way to stop the juggernaut that is MANCHESTER CITY. The penalty for Bruno Fernandes wasContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:MANCHESTER CITY VS MANCHESTER UNITED”

MANCHESTER DERBY PREVIEW

This was an interesting press conference by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. I have deduced the following from what he said. If you listen to his words closely you can hear Ole speaking about winning a trophy or two not directly speaking about the league title. Effectively he has conceded the league trophy toContinue reading “MANCHESTER DERBY PREVIEW”

PREMIER LEAGUE: MANCHESTER UNITED VS EVERTON

Carlo Ancelloti’s Everton repeated the comeback heroics of 9 years ago coming from 2 goals down to salvage a draw. In 2012 the toffees were 4-2 down and drew 4-4 at Old Trafford to dent United’s title ambitions ironically against Man City. Goals from Cavani, losing his marker Mike Keane,to head freely past Olsen andContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE: MANCHESTER UNITED VS EVERTON”

PREMIER LEAGUE: MANCHESTER UNITED VS SOUTHAMPTON

I am not going to dwell much on the goals scored by United ,they were all superb. I want to highlight the difference between a manager who can react to his team going down in terms of personnel on the pitch and one who let his team down. Ralph deserves the sack after what heContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE: MANCHESTER UNITED VS SOUTHAMPTON”

PREMIER LEAGUE: ARSENAL VS MANCHESTER UNITED

Playing with Martial and Cavani is proving to not be a good idea for United. Lacazette is now the main man up front for Arsenal, striking the post from a free kick best chance of the match. Both sides cannot be accused of lacking ambition here, the finishing particularly from Cavani was poor. David LuizContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE: ARSENAL VS MANCHESTER UNITED”

FA CUP:MANCHESTER UNITED VS LIVERPOOL

I am going to cut to the chase and save everyone the color commentary. Liverpool lost the match because their full backs Alexander-Arnold and Robertson failed to take Sunday’s game by the scruff of the neck like they did for most of the games last season. The first goal for United by Greenwood, where wasContinue reading “FA CUP:MANCHESTER UNITED VS LIVERPOOL”
