Who is United’s biggest asset?

Is Wayne Rooney set to join Paul McGrath, Norman Whiteside, Jaap Stam, David Beckham, Roy Keane and Carlos Tevez in the discarded pile? That’s what today’s Independent is suggesting. It follows a difficult 15 months in his relationship with manager Alex Ferguson. Rooney flirted covertley with Manchester City in late 2010 following a reported fall […]

Five things: County, Sol, Wiley, Rafa, FIFA

Luvfooty brings you what we hope will be at least a new weekly feature where we make a brief analysis of five current football stories out there.  We’re good like that. 1. Notts County reveal the man who wasn’t there Pakistani businessman Anwar Shafi has denied any involvement with League Two side Notts County in […]

Welcome to Manchester

It appears Alex Ferguson has lost his sense of humour somewhere along the way.  Yes, the lovable uncle who brought us running jokes like “flexible added on time when United are losing” and “signing crap midfielders” has been lashing out repeatedly at his now-rich footballing neighbours, (Manchester) City.

Well if you believe the vultures that are surrouding Old Trafford, in the shape of opposition fans, the media, and indeed their very own loyal prawn sandwich-loving fans. With the sale of Jaap Stam leaving a hole the size of the channel tunnel […]

A win seems to be the making of a season, a defeat makes it fall apart, while a draw renders us stagnant, unlikely to progress beyond 11th.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are oozing the usual nauseating class and quality; Aston Villa, Spurs, Everton, Liverpool, West Ham, Leeds and Middelsboro are chasing gallantly with mid-table signs already evident, and Newcastle, […]
