Manchester United – David Moyes Has No Clue About Tactics

Posted on 25 Mar, 2014, by in Soccer

Anyone still trying to defend David Moyes and anything he’s done to Manchester United this season is running out of excuses and explanations. Fielding a lineup with no wingers and later on stuffing Shinji Kagawa, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata on the same pitch is yet another low in the clueless approach and desperation of a manager who is simply way in over his head.

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

Biggest Names in the January Transfer Window

Posted on 31 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

One of the interesting things about the January transfer window is that it usually includes a lot of big names, but hardly any major transfers. Out of the big names that will be rumored to join new clubs, like Juan Mata, Robert Lewandowski, Shinji Kagawa and Mario Balotelli, it won’t be much of a surprise to see that everyone stays put.

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.

Manchester United Finally Finding The Right Lineup?

Posted on 11 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

A 1-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk isn’t what will take the pressure off of David Moyes or suddenly turn Manchester United into a machine that will run off on the Premier League, but a lineup and formation used by David Moyes late in the match, which had Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Shinji Kagawa and Adnan Januzaj all playing together might be a partial answer to the team’s problems in the league.

Manchester United – Shinji Kagawa Finally Plays Where He Should Be

Posted on 28 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

To say that playing Shinji Kagawa in the position he’s supposed to was the reason Manchester United walked away from Leverkusen with such a dominating win wouldn’t do justice to the rest of the team, which included another fantastic performance from Wayne Rooney and a rare effective one from the aging Ryan Giggs, but there’s no doubt David Moyes finally saw what his Japanese playmaker can do when he’s used the correct way.

Jack Wilshere Trying to Elbow Shinji Kagawa in the Head

Posted on 12 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

Evidence of Jack Wilshere being less than a wholesome individual continue to pile up, with his next incident being an elbow attempt at the head of Shinji Kagawa during Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat against Manchester United. More

Manchester United Transfer Rumors – Swapping Marco Reus For Shinji Kagawa

Posted on 12 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

It’s still quite a long way from January and the re-opening of the transfer window, but there’s no harm in making plans for the near and more distant future. Manchester United aren’t the only club that’s going after Marco Reus, who has a tempting release clause to trigger, but having Shinji Kagawa available for a swap might give them an edge over other clubs.

Manchester United – David Moyes Finally in the Race

Posted on 11 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

It wasn’t some tactical stroke of genius from David Moyes that gave Manchester United their most meaningful win of the season. It was a Robin van Persie goal, a Wayne Rooney cross and the most committed performance from his players this season, thrusting them back into the title race. More

Manchester United – Chicharito and Shinji Kagawa Deserve Better

Posted on 27 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

Maybe this is the match that will make David Moyes understand some thing about this Manchester United team it has taken him too long to. Shinji Kagawa isn’t a left winger, no matter how much his manager wants him to be. Javier Hernandez needs to be on the pitch in those final moments and probably more. His kind of scoring ability is something that just can’t be taught. More
