Seldom does football provide such heartwarming stories, yet that is exactly the case for Cosmin Lambru's professional debut as the 18-year-old made his first senior appearance whilst wearing a prosthetic arm. Despite being involved in a serious car accident at age eight, he was hit by a truck and...

However, included the revenues from player sales (Neymar) so that was highly misleading as that is not what other clubs do....

If Jose believes Martial, Rashford, Lukaku and a 10 is not balanced enough for his liking, we could always go 5-2-3. The issue with that though is that one of Martial or Rashford have to be on the right hand side, and in terms of build up play through central area's it isn't ideal as it would rel...

In a world of Theo Walcott, Memphis Depay and Oxlade Chamberlain on £100, 000 a week, Sharpey seems to get more valued as the years go on for me. What a player he was. Real shame how his career ended up. Should have been one of those players who was still here in his late 30s. Says a lot about...

In a interview with Thierry Henry, Zlatan says that the injury prolonged his career just so he can prove a injury won't decide how he retires from top football.

Now for those who listen to the United Hour podcast on the latest one I pointed out that the reason I believe Mkhi has been so ineffective is because Pogba being on the pitch gives him more freedom and space to run as well as Pogba being a fantastic passer.

Mourinho is getting a lot of stick for the way he sets us up.
