What would it look like if an aging manager could confront his younger self? This is a 100 percent fictional story about Jose Mourinho being trapped and burdened by the standards of success that he set when he was younger. There was a part in here that referenced Lord Dunsany’s story about Fame a...

On Mourinho, Paul Pogba, and the strange weight of Manchester United’s history. There is a curse that comes for football managers. Some keep it at bay for years at a time; others succumb within months. But they all fall victim, just before the end. They lose the dressing room. As a cliche, it’s e...

Cristiano Ronaldo gets to play Manchester United again, Liverpool got screwed, and Group A is a hipster paradise. 32 teams learned their fate in the UEFA Champions League group stage draw on Thursday, and some are happier with their path to the knockout stage than others. The likes of Bayern Muni...

Plus patience for Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo and more in this week’s Tactically Naive. Serie A is back. La Liga is back. Ligue 1 actually came back last week but we didn’t notice. Oops. Sorry about that. And so with the exception of the Bundesliga, which is taking an extended holiday after a...

By hiring a director of football over Jose Mourinho, Manchester United says goodbye to the manager as god-king. This week in Well, It’s About Time news: Manchester United are looking for a director of football . On the face of it, it’s the sensible move. Perhaps the only move. United’s transfer w...

Andreas Pereira might quickly emerge as a Manchester United fan favorite. It’s a massive credit to and damning indictment of Jose Mourinho that he seems able to turn anyone into a solid defensive midfielder. His most unorthodox conversion project yet is way ahead of schedule. Andreas Pereira — a...

Jose Mourinho didn’t have the best times this summer, but others actually did enjoy things. The English transfer window has drawn to a close, and while not everything went exactly according to plan for English teams, their early date to close their transfer activity has created a strange and almo...

Just before the 58th minute, Wayne Rooney jogged over from the corner flag where he’d been warming up with his D.C. United teammates. The crowd at the new Audi Field, often demure for much of the match, started murmuring, and then cheering. It was time. Rooney notched an assist, and made a stark...

On Monday night, Belgium arrived at a World Cup crossroads. They were two goals down to Japan , and nothing was working. Roberto Martinez had presented his Plan A, and it had been found wanting. And so he turned to his bench, and to Marouane Fellaini. In doing so, he arrived at a crossroads-withi...

Plus some reasons it might be OK for fans screaming ‘I WANT TO BELIEVE’ Wayne Rooney is coming to MLS, and he isn’t coming cheap. No one seems to have nailed down the exact financial details of his transfer quite yet, but it’s fair to say he’ll comfortably be the most expensive player D.C. United...

Argentina’s problems were not fixed with Messi and Rojo’s goals. But they have time to try to figure something out. After Mexico beat Nigeria 2-1 yesterday to advance to the knockout round of the 2018 World Cup , my colleague Kim McCauley brought up a recurring scene in the Bourne film franchise....

Nigeria and Argentina have one of the most surprising, and agonizingly lopsided, rivalries in international soccer. Marcos Rojo has only scored three goals for Argentina . Two of them have been against Nigeria . His first goal came in the 2014 World Cup , when he scored Argentina’s third to beat...

In a game that was largely symbolic, Paul Pogba and others made their mark. Look, we’re going to have to face it. Sometimes, a game of football just doesn’t make sense. Sometimes — as with the Manchester derby — the cliche of two halves doesn’t quite cut it. This was a game of at least six teams....

Manchester City is the betting chalk at the sportsbooks this weekend as they host Manchester United in another chapter of their Derby on Saturday. With only one loss through 31 games in a remarkable 27-1-3 campaign, Manchester City is well on its way to the English Premier League title. Despite t...

It’s time for refs to finally give big athletes the justice they deserve. There were several instances in Manchester United’s match against Sevilla in which Romelu Lukaku was fouled while on the ball, but the foul wasn’t called . For some of them, he stayed on his feet through the tackles, which...

Jose Mourinho has all the typical Jose Mourinho stuff down, but his team is still best at playing like underdogs. Perhaps Jose Mourinho is just playing the long game. After all, Manchester United ’s miserable elimination by Sevilla in the last 16 of the Champions League may look bad, at first blu...

Just a minute after coming off the bench, Sevilla leading scorer Wissam Ben Yedder scored the goal to end United’s campaign. Manchester United is out of the Champions League after a disappointing display at Old Trafford. The Red Devils followed up a disappointing 0-0 draw away to Sevilla with a 2...

Manchester United are on a roll, and a Champions League Round of 16 win would only spark their momentum further. The Champions League Round of 16 is nearly done, but there’s still a little more distance to go before the quarterfinals are drawn. Manchester United have been on a roll of late in Eng...

And Jose Mourinho’s feud with Paul Pogba is the worst part of United’s downturn. To be fair to Jose Mourinho, whatever his plan was, it was over within a few minutes. Ander Herrera started for Manchester United against Sevilla , and he had two jobs. One, the cover story, was to bustle around in m...

It wasn’t a great performance for Manchester United, but they also didn’t get a bad result from the match. Sevilla dominated the day, but Manchester United still managed to just come out of the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie with a scoreless draw on a day where David De Gea w...

Manchester United are in wildly uneven form, and Sevilla aren’t going to give them any breathing room. The Champions League can bring us some interesting, somewhat unexpected matchups, and that seems to be the case with Manchester United heading to Spain to face Sevilla on Wednesday. Manchester U...

Arsenal, Manchester United, and both players will benefit immensely from this move. One of the longest running transfer sagas of the winter window has come to and end, and while it took a different shape than we thought it would a couple of weeks ago, it could have a fairly profound impact on the...

Manchester United is on the road this Saturday to face Burnley in this week’s top matchup on the English Premier League betting board.

The Manchester United manager is exhausting. Jose Mourinho has left chilly England for the sunshine of Dubai, taking his Manchester United squad and surly countenance with him. He will doubtless be hoping that a break will do his team good, and his team will likewise be hoping that a bit of sunsh...
