September Report - A winning streak?

This month we begin the Champions League games with us facing our biggest test in our group, Paris Saint Germain at home. We also have the Capital One Cup 3rd Round against Fulham and a few Barclays Premier League games with the hardest one being Everton.

A good win against a much improve Everton team with Roberto Martinez in charge. Juan got the winning goal and his second this season!

A great win to kick start our Champions League campaign! Miralem Pjanic got his first goal for our club and we've sat in a good position for our next UCL game, Overall, we played some great attacking football and were well disciplined at back.

Back in the league with another solid victory, not much to say about this match other than Valencia scoring a short range finish and Robin scoring a great 20 yard shot into the bottom left of the net.

What a game. We were trailing 2-0 before the break and we turned it around to progress into the next round. Juan got us two good goals and a first goal for Jese both at Manchester United and in England before Nani finished the rout with a cool finish!

Another solid win to round up the month unbeaten and winning every game. Wayne got us two goals to defeat West Brom and give us more breathing space at the top.

League Table

We're sat the top undefeated! We've been in great form and I hope we continue winning games.

Player of the Month

Juan Mata

Our new record breaking signing has had a great month! Scoring some goals but more so getting those assists!

Manager of the Month

Gary Neville

Thank you for 1,000 views! :)


Good news for Manchester United fans this morning as star striker Wayne Rooney has signed a new three year deal with the club earning just under £180,000 a week.

Rooney has been linked with many clubs this season however he has decided on his future by signing this new deal and wants to break Sir Bobby Charlton's all time goal record at Manchester United.

Chelsea were rumoured to be interested in signing Rooney this recent window, however in a recent press conference, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho denied reports that they were interested in signing Rooney.

Rooney has been in fine form for this club this season, scoring 5 goals in 7 appearances.
Any chance that you can show what tactic you are using mate as i really struggle with united to find the right tactic?

Club Plan Stadium Expansion

The club are delighted to announce that Old Trafford will be undergoing an expansion at the end of this season to see the capacity increased to 80,000 and the pitch relayed.

The decision came when new manager Gary Neville convinced the board to expand the stadium due to an ever growing fan base and that the club can earn more money as they can easily fill the stadium when it comes to matchday.

The expansion will cost approximately £8,000,000 however a statement from the board reads:

"We are delighted to be able to expand our stadium and maximize the amount of fans to each game. The financial costs will not matter and will not effect the budget our manager works with."
Stadium upgrade should be interesting and a smart move to get Rooney on a three year deal :)

Yeah the stadium expansion will earn us more money! And yeah, Rooney's new contract was expensive, but its worth it as he's been in great form so far.

Wenger: "Neville will quell under pressure."

In a recent press conference, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoke about the upcoming game against Manchester United and said that new manager Gary Neville will 'quell under pressure' when his team come to the Emirates and play Arsenal.

Wenger's Arsenal side are currently 14th in the league, which is a huge under achievement. They have lost points against teams who are 'worse' than them such as Cardiff and West Ham.

However Neville's Red Devils are sat top of the league and are on an unbeaten run coming into the game at the Emirates, with their team in good morale and form.

Former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has hit back at previous manager Arsene Wenger saying:
"Gary Neville has been amazing since he has took the job here, and quite frankly, Arsene is in a worser state as he's underachieving with Arsenal sat 14th in the league, so it's very patronizing."

van Persie left Arsenal last season to join Manchester United for a fee of 24 million.
C'mon Drogba destroy Man Utd like you did to arsenal :P

October Report - Old Rivals

This month we have a couple of tough fixtures, most notably Arsenal away and Real Sociedad away, however I believe that this team can bring back all the points/wins this month with other games against Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Swansea and Galatasaray.

Good win away in Spain. Robin and Juan got us the goals which sees us with 9 points out of 9 in our Champions League campaign!

Decent home win with Rafael getting the winner. I felt that we could have scored a lot more goals however we missed a lot of chances and were pretty lucky to have took all three points from this game.

This draw felt like a loss. We played some great football out there but like the Fulham result IRL we lost 2 points in the final few minutes of the game, with Wilfred Bony getting the equaliser very late on. Disappointing but we have a big game next against Galatasaray which we need to perform well in.

HUGE RESULT. We bounced back from the draw with Swansea for a 5-1 destruction of the Turkish champions Galatasaray. We got two own goals from them which were caused by our crosses, and Robin got us another two before Juan rounded off the game with a cool finish from 10 yards. Excellent performance.

Massive win at the Emirates. Pre-match Arsene Wenger talked about me saying 'I will quell under pressure' but I bet he's regretting saying that now! Antonio got us off to a great start then former Arsenal man Robin van Persie, who backed me up pre-match scored against his former club to get us a huge three points.

A solid away win to round off the month. Juan getting two goals and Robin killing off Palace!

League Table

Top of the League still and holding a good cushion from Manchester City.

AS Monaco approach Manchester United manager Neville

Shocking news today as manager-less AS Monaco have approached Manchester United manager Gary Neville to be their new manager even though Neville is employed at Manchester United.

Monaco recently sacked manager Claudio Ranieri due to the club under achieving in the league, as Monaco are sat in 12th place, and they should be challenging for the title according to owner Dmitry Rybolovlev.

There is no news from either Manchester United or Gary Neville but we will bring you any news regarding this matter as soon as it comes out.
