Robin van Persie Opens Manchester United Win vs Arsenal

Posted on 3 Nov, 2012, by in Soccer

It took him only three minutes to put the Arsenal chapter of his life behind him.

Luis Suarez Blames Manchester United for Racism Suspension

Posted on 18 Jul, 2012, by in Soccer

If you thought Luis Suarez has put everything that happened to him with Liverpool last season behind him, guess again.

Embarrassing Home Loss for Manchester United Who Simply Didn’t Care

When Patrice Evra spoke about feeling embarassed about playing in the Europa League, it was time to put your money on Bilbao. Manchester United care nothing for minor titles.

The Champions League and the Premier League are the only things that matter. More
