Ed Woodward made a promise to Manchester United fans and he’s not keeping it

Ed Woodward infamously took a photograph of the scoreboard at the Karaiskakis Stadium in 2014. The neon display read Olympiacos 2-0 Manchester United. Woodward vowed a disaster like that would never happen again to the ‘world’s biggest club’. So much so that he even had the image framed and it now takes pride of place on the desk of...

Odds slashed on Jose Mourinho to leave Manchester United after West Ham defeat

Paul Pogba had the perfect response to Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho’s decision

How does Pogba respond? Weeks. That’s how long Jose Mourinho had been deliberating his decision to strip Paul Pogba of the vice-captaincy with his coaching staff.

The photo that will teach Manchester United player Paul Pogba a lesson

Around the time Paul Pogba was stripped of the United vice-captaincy at Carrington, some of the club’s greatest ever players gathered 300 miles away across the Irish Sea in the home dressing room of the Páirc Uí Chaoimh Stadium in Cork. That, in itself, was a historic moment – the Gaelic Athletic Association do not allow English games to...

Paul Pogba sent message by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

Paul Pogba sent a message Paul Pogba told reporters on Saturday that United should ‘attack, attack, attack’ – a statement that struck a chord with fans but again undermined Jose Mourinho’s approach. Intentionally or not. The Frenchman has relished his role as stand-in skipper so will have been disappointed to have been left out of the match day squad...
