  1. Bernard, Koke and shades of Fergie

    Musa Okwonga

    Manchester United's quest for replacements and reinforcements to their squad is in full swing. All the talk is of strengthening their midfield -- of which more later -- but they are apparently also paying careful attention to their need for at least...

  2. United's season is effectively over. Time to talk transfers.

    Musa Okwonga

    It is not quite mid-April and Manchester United's season is all but over. This is an unfamiliar situation at Old Trafford and the only consolation must be that it allows for early planning to start for next season. At the beginning of any new era, th...

  3. Which is more painful for United fans: Liverpool or City winning ...

    Musa Okwonga

    As a Manchester United fan, I have been asked to answer the question of who I would rather see win the Premier League: Manchester City or Liverpool. My immediate reaction is Chelsea. I hope, on Sunday, that these teams draw. But, having attempted un...

  4. In defeat, Evra reminds Man United who they are

    Musa Okwonga

    Manchester United left the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night with an unsurprising margin of defeat but a surprising amount of pride. Their 4-2 loss on aggregate to Bayern Munich was slightly less resounding than had been projected but the grea...

  5. Message to Moyes: Gamble

    Musa Okwonga

    Patrice Evra, in typically candid fashion, revealed recently that Manchester United's players found it easier to motivate themselves for European games than domestic ones which, given the upcoming UEFA Champions League match away to Bayern Munich, is...

  6. Mata and Kagawa carve Newcastle apart

    Musa Okwonga

    Newcastle United 0, Manchester United 4. In the 150th league match between these two teams, Man United manager David Moyes' men emerged as easy victors, swatting the home team aside in much the same fashion as had Everton a couple of weeks before. Wh...

  7. Welbeck waits for his turn on United's centre stage

    Musa Okwonga

    It has been a season of many problems for David Moyes and so, on Tuesday night, Danny Welbeck's display provided some welcome respite. The England forward again produced a fine performance in the UEFA Champions League, with the refinement of his ...

  8. Plenty of positives ahead of brutal Bayern test

    Musa Okwonga

    In the end, Manchester United's 4-1 victory over Aston Villa was pleasingly routine, the type of win expected over a club that had won once in 30 previous visits to Old Trafford. Yet its most welcome feature, perhaps more than the rousing receptio...

  9. Moyes can't treat Villa game as meaningless

    Musa Okwonga

    Manchester United play Aston Villa at Old Trafford tomorrow, and for a match which appears to be meaningless, there is a surprising amount at stake. David Moyes' job has been the subject of deafening speculation in recent months, and one of the on...

  10. Moyes serves up another derby disappointment

    Musa Okwonga

    Like a child with a sweet tooth, the defending champions have developed a worrying taste for numbing home defeats. The metaphor for this 3-0 defeat against rivals Manchester City was Juan Mata's failure to complete simple 10-yard passes on at least t...

  11. Moyes' men deliver for him

    Musa Okwonga

    Well, well, well, this was remarkable. The prematch conversation had been dominated by fears that the home team would produce another performance of all-too-common lethargy and a defeat would bring the manager a step closer to the trapdoor. B...

  12. Moyes must shake things up against Olympiakos

    Musa Okwonga

    If Manchester United's title defence were a boxing match, then the referee would have stopped the fight weeks ago. Unfortunately, though, there may be several rounds of bloody noses still to come, with Manchester City soon to visit Old Trafford. Befo...

  13. The pros and cons of selling van Persie

    Musa Okwonga

    Robin van Persie is "very happy" at Manchester United. We know this because it is what he told United Review in an interview; and we also know that if van Persie is "very happy" at the club, he is probably one of the few people who can say that. "The...

  14. Can Tom Cleverley be excused for disappointing season?

    Musa Okwonga

    Tom Cleverley has taken more than his fair share of furious criticism this season, and so it must have been a relief to see one of his former managers speak out in his defence. Meanwhile, the sheer strength of this advocate's words had several people...

  15. Moyes breathes easy as West Brom fall by the wayside

    Musa Okwonga

    Three goals to nil, and a weekend of breathing easily for David Moyes -- well, relatively easily, at any rate. Manchester United's victory over West Bromwich Albion was achieved with little drama, and was just the kind of score line that should be ex...

  16. Moyes forced to take early look to the future

    Musa Okwonga

    Manchester United will play West Bromwich Albion away from home on Saturday, a fixture they may not look forward to given the last time these two sides met: The result then was a 2-1 victory for the away side, their first at Old Trafford since 1978. ...
