Nani With the Goal of the Season in Portugal; Maybe the Best of His Career

Posted on 23 Feb, 2015, by in Soccer

Lets face it – if Nani had lived up to his potential and early expectations, he wouldn’t be playing for Sporting CP in 2015. His brilliant goal against Gil Vicente, the best we’ve seen this season in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, is a brilliant reminder of how good he can be. The problem is it doesn’t happen all that often. More

Manchester United – David Moyes is in Crisis Mode

Posted on 8 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

Talking of transition and fan support is great, but there comes a point where you can’t lie and hide behind players anymore. Manchester United knew that the first season with David Moyes wasn’t going to be smooth sailing, but no one expected a catastrophic start to the season such as this, with Adnan Januzaj thrust into a bigger role than he’s actually ready for while Robin van Persie comes back from injury too soon for his own good and plays 90 minutes out of position.

Manchester United – Adnan Januzaj Can’t be the Best Player

Posted on 20 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

The David Moyes crisis becomes worse, as his Manchester Untied lacks confidence, courage and the ability to actually finish off matches that should be automatic three points for them, especially at home. While Adnan Januzaj continues being the right choice and the official fresh maker for the team, the awful signing of Marouane Fellaini is cancelling out any positives there are to be drawn from another disappointment.

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. While Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie look like shadows of their former selves at the moment, the young Belgian winger seems like the only refreshing thing in a malfunctioning Manchester United team.

Manchester United – Robin van Persie Can’t Save David Moyes

Posted on 29 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

Championships aren’t won this early in the season, but there’s nothing about Manchester United under David Moyes that radiates anything remotely close to a title, as the over reliance on Robin van Persie continues to be demonstrated with every time he doesn’t start a match or isn’t completely fit to give his best.

Manchester United – Shinji Kagawa & Javier Hernandez Could Make This Season Easier

Posted on 26 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

There was nothing to indicate it was a League Cup Match except for seeing faces like Shinji Kagawa and Javier Hernandez in the lineup, but the pair gave David Moyes plenty to think about in another less than impressive display for Manchester United about his future selections and about what he’s been doing so far.

Manchester United – Nani Is Past the Point of No Return

Posted on 12 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

Not too long ago, it seemed like there’s no chance Nani will get to remain a Manchester United player. But David Moyes isn’t simply an Alex Ferguson “Yes-Man”, and he managed to change the Portuguese winger’s mind about leaving. It doesn’t mean that it’s going to turn out OK. 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. More

Manchester United – Nani Scoring Doesn’t Make Him Important Again

Posted on 30 Jul, 2013, by in Soccer

Making the most of your opportunities doesn’t put you back in the lineup picture, and Nani is still a fringe player for Manchester United, even if he impressed in a friendly match featuring those not joining the main part of the squad in the Far East tour. More
