Derby FA Cup tie is do or die for Van Gaal

It’s often said the game of football is a very fickle one. Opinions change every day. Week in, week out. And this couldn’t be truer at Manchester United at the minute. Just six days after overcoming arch rivals Liverpool at Anfield, Louis van Gaal was under the microscope again. And with good reason. After winning arguably the biggest game in English football, you would have thought United would have built up a bit of momentum and...

4 things Man United need to do to get three points at Anfield

Performances and lack of goals and creativity aside, Manchester United aren’t doing too bad. Louis van Gaal’s side sit third in the table, just one point off top spot and qualification into the last 16 of the Champions League is still in their own hands. So, what’s the problem?

There are many traditions in the world of football. At one time it was Brazil winning the World Cup. Not so long ago it was Manchester United at least challenging for the title. But now in this spectacular transfer obsessed age we live in, there is one tradition that we have all come to know and, not really love. The Ronaldo homecoming rumours.
