Captain Wayne Rooney is, sadly, rotting

Seems like his years on top take their toll now he’s getting older. Good reading over at The Guardian.

Mkhitaryan and Lingard won’t start vs Feyenoord

Mkhitaryan just picked up an injury at pointless international friendly match last week and Lingard hasn’t had enough game time since the FA Cup win, yet the manager include them to the starting 11. Now the derby defeat sounds like the pair’s main fault. Well, I don’t believe that. It’s the media wants to sound like it does.

However, of course there are bad performances by the players, even the most expensive player on the planet aren’t immune to such circumstances. But I was wondering, what’s the “punishment” for a manager who pick a wrong starting 11? I am not looking for an answer, but his tactic still puzzles me.

Bastian Schweinsteiger Left Out from the Squad

After being named in the Premier League squad, apparently the German legend left out in Europa League.

I really like him. He is one of the leader on and off field for the team. But I think he’ll be gone soon. Sad.

Fellaini Helps Women Crushed During Goal Celebration

While everyone busy celebrating, the big Belgium midfielder spotted a women crushed during the celebration and rushes to help her.

Quick thinking and empathic respond. Top lad!

Marouane Fellaini suffers ‘bad’ back injury

We wouldn’t care if this happened 3 months ago. However, time has changed. Marouane Fellaini is definitely one of our stand out defensive performer so far.

I guess it’s a perfect time for Ander Herrera, Morgan Schneiderlin or Michael Carrick to show what they can do, step up and fight to fill the Belgian’s position.

Luke Shaw Exclusive Interview

The young England defender was definitely one of our top performer last season until that cunt Moreno did what cunts do. What happened next is what we fear worst, that was the last match for our young left-back and he was forced to stay off field to recover a potentially career ending injury for the rest of the season.

To be fair to our previous manager, Luke could’ve saved our season. Maybe not, but I feel that the team never recovered from missing our very best left back that night at Philips Stadion, Eindhoven in a Champions League match.

Luke Shaw made a comeback though. He went straight to the starting eleven at Mourinho’s United and featured at two opening matches this season. He talked to Daniel Taylor at the Guardian about his injury and how the new boss change things around. It’s a really good interview.

I am very happy to see him back.

Bastian Schweinsteiger to leave for free?

So it’s true that the world cup winner isn’t part of Mourinho’s United.

He is one of my favourite player. Good luck, Basti!

Big Money – How Football Clubs Actually Sign Players

“But why are player costs important? After all, it’s not our money, right. Disregarding that it kind of is our money – the huge increase in Premier League TV revenue, for example, is being paid for through Sky and BT subscription fees from UK viewers – with domestic and Uefa financial regulations, clubs are prevented from spending much more than they earn. In practice, this results in individual spending caps for each team. Understanding how clubs calculate player costs helps us to see how they really value certain players, as well as how the money is being spent, which players provide good value, and which players do not.”

Superb coverage on the business behind mega contracts at The Guardian.
