Since the retirement of the Great Sir Alex Ferguson, The Manchester United board have decided to hire a former International Footballer turned manager, Sergio Borini to take over the Red Devils. Sergio also known as the Italian technician has stated there will be some changes to the Man United squad but the fans will understand them in the long run.

He has also stated his main aim is to win the Champions League in his first season. The press thought he was joking but other witnesses stated he was deadly serious about the matter.

Time for United to do this again ! ^

Current squad and tactics are shown below. The style of play basically will be to attack the opposition from the start using creativity but also making sure we are solid at the back.

Manchester United Pre-Season transfers are as follows:

The Manchester United board have released a statement saying they are very happy about the profit they have made from the transfers and are looking forward to seeing the new signings in action.

Sergio Borini has also stated that he is still in the market for a backup goalkeeper as he's unsure whether Ben Amos may departing Old Trafford or not.

Manchester United Fixtures:

The Manchester United coaching staff have said they are delighted to be working with such a determined manager and are hoping that based on the opening fixtures, they can make a great start to the season.
Great signings and I love Evra(no homo)but PSG overpayed a lot for him.
A good start. Did you use the editor at all for the transfers as £23m for Evra is crazy. Considering he is only valued at £5M, and PSG (or anyone) never offer more than £7-10m, thats a ridiculous amount I struggle to believe was payed legit. Nevertheless, good luck!

I wish! Don't know how to use the thing, just got lucky I guess. A similar thing happened in a previous save with Chelsea offering 35m for Pedro at Barca but his value wasn't even half of that.

After a recent interview post-training session, Sergio Borini was able to give the media a few words about the first month and a half of the new season. Manchester United were able to lift the Community Shield after a 3-0 victory over Wigan and they soon carried that form into the opening league games. Gaining victories over the likes of Norwich, Fulham, Stoke, Aston Villa and gaining one point from the trip to White Hart Lane. They were also able to gain their first win in their first Champions League group stage game against PSV, with matches against Schalke and Celtic to look forward to.

Sergio Borini said he was very delighted with Wayne Rooney's recent form which could have been inspired by Sergio appointing him as the new vice-captain to stand-in for Nemanja Vidic. Rooney has scored 7 goals in 7 games with a bunch of assists to follow that.

With the likes of Nani and Darren Fletcher almost gaining full fitness, Manchester United still have to worry about one of their key players being away for a while. Robin van Persie broke his lower leg in the Community Shield game against Wigan and is currently seeing a specialist so should be returning back to training within 3-4 months.

Despite the bad news, Manchester United are sitting at the top of the table with 4 wins and 1 draw and games against the likes of Liverpool, Sunderland, Cardiff and Swansea. Borini highlighted the Liverpool game as not only a big derby but a match that decides who stays at the top seeing as Liverpool are right behind United in the table holding the same amount of points.

Nice interesting story!

Thanks a lot, much appreciated.

The Manchester United board have stated that they are very delighted in the direction the club is heading and in result have decided to offer Sergio Borini a new 3 year contract. Before accepting the new deal, Borini stated there were some things he wanted to discuss in terms of the boards expectations of him. After agreeing on a new expansion to the Old Trafford stadium and a more direct approach in developing youth players, Borini put pen-to-paper and signed the new deal.

Since our last update Manchester United have continued their impressive run with victories against the likes of Liverpool, Sunderland, Cardiff and Chelsea. United have also qualified from the group stages of the Champions League with 2 games in hand and have a Capital One Cup quarter-final to look forward to.


In a recent interview, Borini stated how delighted he was with the form of Shinji Kagawa. Kagawa has scored 9 goals in 17 appearances and also getting as much assists as he has goals.

Despite being happy with the whole squad in general, Borini felt that the weakest area of the squad was in the midfield. He stated that Manchester United have agreed transfer and contract terms with Southampton for the young James Ward-Prowse who is touted as the next Paul Gascoigne.

Manchester United have also agreed with the French club Lyon for the transfer of Sam Umtiti, who will help strengthen United's defence. Both new signings will join the club in the January transfer window.
With the January transfer window getting closer and closer, we decided to look into the rumours of Manchester United making another signing. Manchester United's Portuguese winger was recently struck by injury keeping him out for 2-3 months and there has been rumours that Manchester United are looking to replace him seeing as he was a key player in their recent games.

A spokesperson for Sergio Borini let us know on the Old Trafford ground that they had a agreed terms with PSG for the transfer of Javier Pastore. Just the thought of the signing had excited many fans and now it is confirmed.

The cultured winger from Argentina is set to arrive in Manchester on the 1st of January and should be ready to make an instant impact. Pastore has made 21 appearances for PSG this season gaining up to 4 goals and 10 assists.

More good news from Old Trafford is that Robin van Persie has resumed light training and should be back to full training within a few weeks. United are now sitting at the top of the table by 3 points with a game in hand.

Since their 0-0 draw at the Etihad stadium they have gained victories over the likes of West Brom, Arsenal, Newcastle and Everton. They also have a Capital One Semi Final to look forward to against Everton and of course a very important Champions League 1st Knockout round game against last years beaten finalists, Borussia Dortmund.


Manchester United have won the Capital One Cup after a 3-2 victory against Chelsea. United were 3-0 up by the end of the first half but found themselves on the back foot once Chelsea had pulled 2 back in the second half but after some strong defending they were able to bring the trophy back to Old Trafford.

Sergio Borini stated that it was down to his key players like Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney that they were able to achieve such success. United now make their way to Spain for the first leg of their Champions League Quarter Final against Real Madrid.

United have come a long way since our last article, gaining victories over the likes of West Ham, Stoke and Liverpool but will be disappointed that their 40+ games unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of Chelsea. United also recently lost to Arsenal following a couple defensive errors that Borini openly criticised his team about.

With United's recent away form aside, they still sit comfortably at the top of the table by 7 points and a game in hand.
Wembley hit by FA Cup Fever

Manchester United head to London in search of yet another trophy to add to their cabinet. United beat the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City & Swansea to get this far. They go up against Tottenham in the FA Cup final and should have their heads held high going in as the favorites by many pundits.

Manchester United also have a very important trip to Portugal following this week in attempt to gain Champions League glory. United will go up against Chelsea in the final and should once again be seen as favorites considering United already beat them in this season's Capital One Cup Final.

Sergio Borini has stated he is very happy to have won the league but persists that celebrations be kept to a minimal until the season has officially ended. United retained the Premier League after sitting comfortably at the top by 8 points.

Borini highlighted the Champions League Quarter Final 2nd Leg as the new United he has produced. United were 1-0 down on aggregate and showed the world from Old Trafford that they were no pushovers by thumping Madrid 5-1 in the 2nd leg.
