Arsenal FC – Danny Welbeck Makes Arsene Wenger a Happy Man

Posted on 2 Oct, 2014, by in Soccer

A hat trick from Danny Welbeck isn’t the most improbable thing in the world, but Arsenal and Arsene Wenger shouldn’t expect it to happen a whole lot in the future. He’s a very useful player to have in certain formations, but a pure scorer is something he’s not. More

2014 World Cup: England Hitting an All-Time Low

Posted on 22 Jun, 2014, by in Soccer

Even in a World Cup where nothing was actually expected of the England national football team, they manage to hit an all-time low: Not making it out of the group stage for the first time since 1958. Just another example of the bad luck, naivety and especially tactical inferiority in the English game right now, which is personified by the ill equipped manager, Roy Hodgson. More

Manchester United – Wayne Rooney Shines Bright in Sabotage Aftermath

Posted on 27 Apr, 2014, by in Soccer

The beginning of the Ryan Giggs era, as short or long as it may become, was a great one for Manchester United, getting a win, a convincing one, at Old Trafford, which has been an issue for them this season. Wayne Rooney looked a bit better than the rest of the players, joining his brace to that of Juan Mata, and the England international might be one of the few to actually come out as winners at the club from this horrendous season.

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.

Manchester United – Danny Welbeck as an Example of Ugly, Winning Football

Posted on 29 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

The old Manchester United are back – terrible football, but just about enough to claim a win at the end. It doesn’t win you fans, but it does push you up in the table, making everyone forget how awful a start David Moyes has had, with Danny Welbeck suddenly becoming the most reliable scorer on the team.

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.

Manchester United – Danny Welbeck Decision Shows David Moyes is Learning

Posted on 16 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

Playing against an aggressive, counter attacking side on the road, David Moyes decided he’ll go for speed and physicality by using Danny Welbeck as his striker, playing ahead of Wayne Rooney and between two true wingers in Adnan Januzaj and Antonio Valencia. It worked out quite well for Manchester United, maybe starting once again their slow climb up the Premier League table. More

Manchester United – Marouane Fellaini Partially Succeeds in New Role

Posted on 3 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

Considering the rain of criticism falling down on David Moyes, an away draw in the Champions League inside a very tough stadium is nothing to be ashamed about, as Robin van Persie felt quite alone without Wayne Rooney by his side, while Marouane Fellaini might have been the most important player on the pitch in his advanced role, which is also keeping Shinji Kagawa out of the lineup. More

Manchester United – Robin van Persie Can’t be Replaced by Danny Welbeck

Posted on 23 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

Even without Robin van Persie, Manchester United shouldn’t look this bad. However, when the manager is David Moyes, it wasn’t surprising to see a man-for-man switch by putting Danny Welbeck, who is anything but a goalscorer, instead of the team’s best player. More

Manchester United – Robin van Persie Needs David Moyes to Help Him

Posted on 2 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

Having the best striker in the Premier League isn’t enough. Even someone like Robin van Persie needs a decent enough supply of passes in order to conjure something. Unfortunately for him, David Moyes has done nothing during this summer to improve on that aspect, while the selections he makes (leaving out Shinji Kagawa and Wilfried Zaha) seem to be hurting Manchester United more than actually helping the team.
