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.

Manchester United – Adnan Januzaj is the Only Player David Moyes Trusts

Posted on 6 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

Sometimes the player does match the hype, and all the talk of Adnan Januzaj before the season and during his cameo appearances for Manchester United turned out to be quite accurate foreplay for the main course.

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.

Manchester United – Robin van Persie Makes it Look Too Easy

Posted on 18 Aug, 2013, by in Soccer

All the talk of Manchester United not doing enough during the summer, and of David Moyes not being good enough to be their manager, and about their midfield not having enough quality; all that went out the window once Robin van Persie started scoring, and took away any shred of doubt about his team’s chances of being a major player in the title race this season.

Manchester United – Robin van Persie & Wilfried Zaha Rise Above the Mediocrity

Posted on 12 Aug, 2013, by in Soccer

You can’t expect a cohesive performance in a match that’s a little bit more than a friendly, especially considering the weak opposition, but Manchester United continue their ways of boring out wins, relying on individual brilliance, twice coming from their best player, Robin van Persie, and the only bright spot that has nothing to do with the Dutch man, Wilfried Zaha.

Posted on 16 May, 2013, by in Soccer

There’s more than just Wayne Rooney to worry about for David Moyes as he enters the biggest challenge of his career; trying to fill the huge shoes Alex Ferguson leaves at Manchester United. There’s sorting out an again defense, with Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic no longer reliable as before, while trying to upgrade a sub-par midfield when it comes to Champions League standards, and finding a way to sort out the attack and its hierarchy.

Transfer Rumors 2013 – AC Milan Interested in Nemanja Vidic From Manchester United

Posted on 27 Mar, 2013, by in Soccer

By spending more time in the treatment room and on crutches in the last couple of seasons than on the pitch, Nemanja Vidic is writing his own ticket away from Manchester United, who need someone a little less injury prone to be their star starting centre back, not to mention his inconsistent form when actually playing. AC Milan, looking for an improvement in their defensive line, might be the big club to swoop for the Serbian. More

Posted on 31 Jan, 2013, by in Soccer

This is Manchester United this season, and most of the time as well: A team that doesn’t need a great match or even to get more chances at home to mount yet another comeback victory and extend their lead at the top of the Premier League. The hero this time wasn’t Robin van Persie, but Wayne Rooney with a quick first half double. More

Manchester United – The David de Gea Problem

Posted on 22 Jan, 2013, by in Soccer

Instead of losing to Tottenahm, Manchester United managed a draw despite being pinned back for most of the match. That doesn’t stop many from blaming David de Gea, who was fantastic for most of the match, for not coming away with the 3 points. More
