FA Cup: Huddersfield Town 0 United 2

Two goals from the Belgian Beast Romelu Lukaku take us through to the quarter final:



We will then face Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford.

Beaten by Spurs 2-0

We played bad and beaten at Wembley 2-0. Spurs scored in just 11 seconds then the rest of the night was just non stop happiness for the home fans.

Hope that was the worst United game under Jose Mourinho.

FA Cup 5th Round

United will face either Birmingham City or Huddersfield Town in the 5th round of FA Cup. On paper, this game should be a breeze. But it’s the FA Cup where any team can beat any team.

We Got Mourinho!

As previously mentioned in this blog, United is willing to extend Mourinho’s contract and I am not surprised. Today the club announces that they do extend the 54 year old gaffer’s contract.

I believe the Portuguese will continue to bring us glories. He got a very long records of being one of the most successful manager in the game.

Welcome to Manchester United Alexis Sanchez!

The club confirmed the arrival of the Chilean striker with the news that Henrikh Mkhitaryan has moved the other way around in a straight swap.

Sanchez:

“I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world. The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with Jose Mourinho was something I could not turn down. I am very proud to be the first Chilean player ever to play for United’s first team and I hope I can show our fans all around the world why the club wanted to bring me here.”

Mourinho:

“Alexis is one of the best attacking players in the world and he will complete our very young and talented group of attacking players. He will bring his ambition, drive and personality, qualities that make a Manchester United player and a player that makes the team stronger and the supporters proud of their club dimension and prestige.”

Sanchez will wear the iconic no. 7 shirt. Welcome to Manchester United!

Manchester United lose part of the League Cup trophy and nobody knows where it’s gone

This is absurd. Via Mirror.

Michael Carrick to retire at end of season

The captain will retire at the end of 2017/2018 season and reportedly is going to take a first team coaching role at United under Jose Mourinho.

The underrated ex-England midfielder was key in several title winning teams under Sir Alex Ferguson. I am sad to see him retire but glad that he’s staying at Manchester United.

Legend!

Rivals are Dropping Points

Sunday game sees Liverpool beat Manchester City at home while 6th place Arsenal losing 3 points from winning position over at Bournemouth.

League champions Chelsea held by Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspurs was brilliant on their 4-0 beating of Everton.

A win at home on Monday night is increasingly important given our mediocre run of results on the festive period of December let the Merseyside’s reds catch up on league points.

I’ll definitely put my money on a home side’s a win if I am put a bet on Manchester United with a UK bookmaker however games against Stoke City are almost always tricky. I would hope though that we can capitalize the turmoil at Stoke that ended with United’s legend Mark Hughes sacking.

The gaffer confirmed there’s no injury as his team returned fresh from warm weather of Dubai back to the Theater of Dreams.

Will United Extend Mourinho’s Contract?

I certainly hope so.

He’s doing alright despite the mediocre at times shown by his team especially in busy period of December, therefore I fail to see why they will not.

We were 6th in the league around same time last season now we’re 2nd and currently still in 3 competitions. So I wasn’t surprised when I hear the club reportedly have been in detailed discussions with Mourinho and his representatives for the past month over an extension to his contract.

Give him some more time and the players he wants. Manchester United can surely have those luxuries.

Lingard Firing On All Cylinders for United

It is hard to argue that Jose Mourinho has underwhelmed at Manchester United since his appointment. Many at Old Trafford, from board members to supporters on the terrace, were expecting a much bigger fight for domestic glory in the Premier League, the trophy that has eluded the club since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2013.

However, despite the likelihood that, much to the club’s disgust, the Premier League title looks like it is going across the city of Manchester to Pep Guardiola and the once “noisy neighbours” at the Etihad Stadium, there is still plenty to be positive about at Old Trafford.
