Writing a book on the 50 greatest games of Manchester United (and Newton Heath as they were previously known) is a great task, due to the fact that there are so many great games to choose from. On the other hand though, it is also a difficult one, as the amount of hugely memorable games […]

… As the list of injured players at the club keeps growing. At a time when the cold, dark evenings are getting longer, and games will start coming thick and fast, we were hoping that the list of ‘crocked’ players will start to shorten.

Encounters between Manchester United and Arsenal are often remembered for all of the bad feeling generated when Ferguson and Venger were battling for Premier League supremacy in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Events like the “battle of the buffet,” Van Nistelrooy’s penalty miss and of course Roy Keane’s pre-match tunnel rant at Patrick Viera […]

The Week That Was: Cometh The Hour, Cometh The Juan

14 Nov , 2014  

After last week’s derby defeat, it was imperative that United beat Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, otherwise we’d have gone into the international break not having won in the past four games. United were once again ‘down to the bare bones’ at the back, as apart from all the injuries, Chris Smalling was suspended after […]

MATCH REPORT: Manchester United 1-0 Crystal Palace

8 Nov , 2014  

It’s a strange time to be a Manchester United fan. A large proportion of the club’s fanbase felt a sense of pride and refused to be too downbeat after last weekend’s derby failure at the Etihad, looking for the positives in that 1-0 defeat. Fast forward six days, and the immediate reaction was relief mixed […]

Saturday’s opponents, Crystal Palace, have something of a strong historical link with United, probably for the 1994/95 season more than any other. People remember the infamous game at Selhurst Park, and the controversial FA Cup semi finals, but for one of the famous Class of 92, it is the least spoke of of the fixtures […]

Retro Red: The Ta-Ra Fergie Game

As United prepare for the visit of Crystal Palace it’s fair to say that meetings between the two sides haven’t exactly provided us with too many memorable classics over the decades. Obviously there was Eric Cantona’s infamous sortie into the crowd back in 1995, an FA Cup semi-final and final, not to mention the win […]
