I’ve been a huge Manchester United fan for many years now and try to religiously follow their games wherever I am. Admittedly, it can be hard to follow some of their games especially if you’re in Asia because of the time difference. But when I do get to catch a game, it’s truly a wonderful experience, especially when they win. [Read more…]
Manchester United began its campaign to win the Premier League Cup in a very decisive fashion. Bucking the popular assessment of the Red Devils as slow starters, they came blazing right off the gate this season. Even the usually slow to find his groove Wayne Rooney immediately displayed fine form and racked up an impressive number of points – including getting a hat trick on Manchester United’s successive matches against Arsenal and Bolton.
For a moment there, Manchester United fans were beginning to think that this is going to be an effortless season and that the Red Devils will breeze through the season maintaining their impressive form. But football is nothing but unexpected. Injury problems have again began to plague the team. [Read more…]
Cristiano Ronaldo may have had a bit of a troubled relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson by the end of his last season for Manchester United because of his very vocal desire to leave the team but now that he is with Real Madrid, the Portuguese winger has come out to say that he misses being with the Red Devils.
Ronaldo was transferred to Real after an unprecedented £80million fee this summer. But even though he misses life at Old Trafford he still maintains that he made the right choice in going to Real Madrid.
Ronaldo has also dismissed comments that Manchester United has been struggling without him this season. He said that even though the team has lost the last two games they are still the second placers in the league.
I think that it’s very sportsmanly of Ronaldo to say such things about his old club. We’ve often seen players who transfer to a new team lambasting his former teammates and the manager just to justify why they had to transfer in the first place. Ronaldo has proven that you can transfer without having to show any kind of animosity to your former teammates. Yes, he may be seen as a little bit of a brat by most fans but he’s shown that he can also be a stand-up guy.
With Manchester United’s impressive 5 – 0 win over Portsmouth, Sir Alex Ferguson is reiterating his admiration for his team and their chances for a record fourth consecutive Premier League championship.
The key to the Red Devils’ impressive win was the impressive performances of many of its players. Wayne Rooney scored his 23rd goal for the season, which ties his personal best. Nani has also been reinvigorated and looks like to be on a roll — and Berbatov, Carrick and Wilson are putting in their share of the burden.
Fergie said that a big key to the Red Devils’ success is the team’s patience. Despite the pressure that the team faces in their matches, everyone takes their time and wait for opportunities to arrive — and then they explode.
With their next match against Aston Villa, expect the team to put their best foot forward in order to solidify their position in the league table.
With Manchester United strongly in the running for winning the Premiere League Championship once again this year, Man Utd fans are becoming increasingly stoked about the team’s prospects even with strong competition facing them in the coming months.
But the enthusiasm is not being relegated to fans. Even the members of the team are becoming increasingly optimistic about their chances for a record fourth consecutive championship. And no one is more optimistic than Manchester United Captain Gary Neville, who has been quoted as saying “It is in our hands now and it has not been like that for a while.”
Key to the Red Devils’ success if Wayne Rooney’s amazing run this season. Rooney has been on fire and is ably replacing the void that Cristiano Ronaldo has left. the striker has already scored his 23rd goal this season, which already equals his career best.
Neville wants the Red Devils to maintain their winning form, which is needed now more than ever as they prepare to play AC Milan in the Champions League.
All eyes are now on Nani, who has been playing extremely well in their last few games. If Nani gets his groove, he’ll be a perfect partner to Rooney.
