Manchester United – Adnan Januzaj Provides a Single Park in the Dark

Posted on 14 Aug, 2015, by in Soccer

If there’s one word to describe Manchester United in the Louis van Gaal era, it’s probably “boring”. Luckily for him, one brief moment of stepping out of those rigid boundaries resulted in a flashy Adnan Januzaj goal. More

Manchester United vs Arsenal – Michael Oliver is the Real Star

Posted on 9 Mar, 2015, by in Soccer

In the FA Cup quarter final between Manchester United and Arsenal (Gunners winning 2-1) it was Michael Oliver, the referee, who stole the spotlight with his excellent officiating and consistent punishment to those trying to cheat through diving, like Angel di Maria and Adnan Januzaj. More

Manchester United – Louis van Gaal Knows He Has Work to do

Posted on 17 Aug, 2014, by in Soccer

Reality hit Manchester United and it’s manager, Louis van Gaal, in the face on the opening match of the new Premier League season. Wayne Rooney did score a goal, but it was far from enough against an alleged inferior opponent. The combination of new and changing tactics, young and ill-positioned players with similar problems to those from last season resulted in a terribly disappointing performance. More

Manchester United – Wayne Rooney & Robin van Persie Stuck With David Moyes

Posted on 17 Mar, 2014, by in Soccer

It’s hard to put a finger on just one thing David Moyes did in a humiliating loss for Manchester United against their biggest rivals. From the defense with Phil Jones and Nemanja Vidic which looked scared and panicked, to the non existent midfield with Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick. The wings, with two players not built for this kind positioning or physicality in Juan Mata and Adnan Januzaj, while two forwards in Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney are made useless by wrong tactics and zero sense of confidence and drive.

Not that it surprises anyone, but so far this season Manchester United players have been cautioned with a yellow card more than anyone else in the Premier League for simulation, making them the expected champions of diving at this stage of the season. More

Manchester United – Shinji Kagawa & Adnan Januzaj Where They Should Be

Posted on 12 Jan, 2014, by in Soccer

For someone who always tries to project that he’s in complete control of what’s happening at Manchester United, it was quite weird to see David Moyes realize only after 45 minutes that Shinji Kagawa and Adnan Januzaj weren’t playing where they should be. More

Manchester United – David Moyes Has No One to Trust

Posted on 8 Jan, 2014, by in Soccer

Losses in the English League Cup usually don’t create too much background noise at Manchester United, but when it’s added to the previous losses in the league and the FA Cup while David Moyes seems to be hounded by the media but supported by his own fans, there’s definitely an aura of crisis in the air.

Manchester United – David Moyes Can’t Handle the Truth

Posted on 2 Jan, 2014, by in Soccer

What’s different between this Manchester United, the one David Moyes is managing, than the one from last season? The players are the same, give or take a few injuries. And yet the under pressure manager is trying to make it seem like he’s doing an excellent job, taking his frustration out at the referees instead of himself and his own players, while making it seem like the quality he has to work with just simply isn’t as good as it actually is.

Adnan Januzaj – The Dirty Diving Just Won’t Stop

Posted on 22 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

Another match goes by, and as much as Adnan Januzaj is doing wonders for his reputation as one of the best young talents in Europe right now, he’s also making a name for himself and Manchester United by not missing an opportunity to try and cheat by deceiving the referee and diving whenever there’s a chance for it.

The Day After – Manchester United vs West Ham

Posted on 22 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

A win? At Old Trafford? Something must be wrong, or probably finally going right for David Moyes and Manchester United. More consistency in the lineup, making the right choices, while the Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck partnership is working out quite well up front, and Adnan Januzaj continues to show his fantastic development into what might be someday a world class left winger.
