  • Manchester United linked to Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani but will they gamble?

    Just as many fans feared at the start of the season, Manchester United’s squad is looking light after a few injuries. Marcus Rashford, the player of the season, is the latest casualty and likely to be out for months with a back problem. He will be missed, just as Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba are. No player started more games than Rashford before his injury, but what do United do now he’s unavailable?

    Sad though it sounds for a club of their stature, they’re in the chase for...

  • Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs support to succeed

    Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs support to succeed

    Manchester United fans have been understandably annoyed that no new players have arrived so far in the January transfer window. Midfielder Bruno Fernandes is expected from Sporting Lisbon, but anger, stoked by five defeats in a month, prevails.

    Too many fans rounded on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the press conference before Wednesday’s game at Manchester City.

    His crimes? A tongue-in-cheek comment that Alexis Sanchez would come back and prove the media wrong when (if)...

  • Uefa Champions League beckons for Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City

    Uefa Champions League beckons for Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City

    Slogans on the blue scarves on sale by car park E outside Leicester’s King Power stadium show their fans do not like VAR. Maybe, but Leicester fans have few other complaints about the way this season has gone. The Foxes are third in the English Premier League, eight points clear of last Saturday’s opponents Chelsea. They won’t repeat arguably the greatest sporting story of the last decade by winning the title, but they’re in a very good place.“We're genuinely competing at the top end of...

  • Manchester United ‘as toxic as 1989-90 season’ and in need of Premier League wins not PR

    “Things seems to be as bad and as toxic at the club as they were in ’89-90,” a legendary Manchester United player told the Post on Monday. “And I can’t understand why Ed Woodward wants better PR. Fans don’t like the chairman or owners in football even when teams are winning, let alone losing. At United, Martin Edwards wasn’t popular with fans, nor Peter Kenyon or David Gill …”After decades of relatively plain sailing Manchester United continue to operate under a cloud. Fans are...

  • Eric Bailly soars on swift return to Manchester United defence; ready for extended run in the team

    Manchester United’s Ivorian defender Eric Bailly hadn’t played a game of football since July or a competitive game since last April when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told him on Sunday that he’d be starting away to Chelsea on Monday night. Victor Lindelof, one of the usual central defenders, was ill and the Ivorian was considered ready.“It’s not easy when you don’t play for so long,” Bailly said after the match as he walked from the dressing room to the team coach. “But it only gets easier...

  • Bruno Fernandes hits the ground running as Manchester United finally fill No 10 hole

    Before his new signing Bruno Fernandes kicked a ball for Manchester United, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer compared him to Paul Scholes, arguably United’s greatest ever-attacking midfielder and one who played 718 times for the club.

    Fernandes, signed after protracted negotiations at the end of the January transfer window, has pulled on a United shirt only four times, but the versatile Portuguese is the best thing about the club right now.

    After an awful January when United...

  • Germany’s ultra fans are fighting for the future of Bundesliga clubs and against the establishment

    The referee stopped the game and the public address system broadcast that the attendance figure was 81,365, the biggest in the world that weekend. Bigger even than the 80,000 who watched Sunday’s clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona.Bundesligachasing Borussia Dortmund were leading against Freiburg when the referee told both captains that he was stopping the game. The request for fans to stop singing insulting songs went out as players stood around looking unsure. Meanwhile Dortmund’s ultra…...

  • Unflappable Nemanja Matic helps Manchester United to another win over City and cements his place at the heart of midfield

    Manchester United’s Serbian international Nemanja Matic was about to leave Old Trafford after Sunday’s Manchester derby. He’d played well again, as he did when the two teams last met when he was the man of the match – and also sent off.

    “I’m pleased but it’s only three points,” he said, refusing to get carried away while United fans do exactly that after beating England’s champions for the third time in three months.

    United’s assistant manager Mike Phelan...

  • Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘coronavirus hotels’ another of football’s fake feel-good stories

    The “news” went viral on Sunday, a feel-good story for these feel bad times. Cristiano Ronaldo would turn his chain of hotels in Portugal into hospitals for people affected by Covid-19. Not only that, he would pay the salaries of all the doctors and nurses.

    Hundreds of websites repeated this story including established news outlets like Marca’s website (but not the actual paper) in Spain and TalkSport’s website in England. Last Thursday, Marca’s website also wrote that all...

  • La Liga off but there is light amid Spain’s coronavirus lockdown

    La Liga off but there is light amid Spain’s coronavirus lockdown

    The biggest sports story in Spain since the state of emergency was declared on Friday, March 13, was the death on Saturday of former Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz from the coronavirus.

    Sanz, 76, was the cigar-smoking president who oversaw Madrid’s first European Cup in 32 years in 1998. He took Fabio Capello from AC Milan to Madrid in 1996 when Serie A was top dog and Madrid didn’t win European Cups.

    Capello was one of the few coaches that Sanz didn’t sack, while...
