Discussing Javier Hernandez’s situation at Manchester United and rebuffing some harsh criticism

Discussing Javier Hernandez’s situation at Manchester United and rebuffing some harsh criticism 2

I’ve just finished reading this, from the Sky Sports website. For those who can’t be bothered to read that article in full, it’s essentially a discussion of Javier Hernandez’s centre-forward attributes - and there’s a suggestion within, that because he’s principally a goal-scorer and little else, he struggles for game-time at Old Trafford alongside more(…)

Addressing the rumours about Antonio Valencia leaving Manchester United 0

Goal.com reports - sorry, ‘has learnt’ - this morning that Sir Alex Ferguson is prepared to listen to offers for Antonio Valencia in the Summer, and that the Ecuadorian will join Anderson, Luis Nani and Javier Hernandez in leaving Old Trafford at the end of the season. Anderson is probably leaving, Nani is likely also(…)

Why Javier Hernandez won’t be leaving Manchester United

Why Javier Hernandez won’t be leaving Manchester United 1

Nonsense, and lots of it. Let’s jump out ahead of this, because presumably all the tenuous rumour-mongering around Javier Hernandez’s Manchester United’s future is about to flare-up again. Internet reports - including this one - have Barcelona moving for the Mexican and handing over £15m for him. Nope. You’ll remember earlier in the season that(…)

Manchester United should start with three forwards on Sunday 2

What’s the best way to beat this Chelsea side? Attack them. Looking at the balance of this Manchester United squad, it’s fairly obvious where its strength lies - in the front third. If United go to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, and play passively, they will get unpicked. Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Oscar and Fernando Torres(…)

….And that’s why Javier Hernandez won’t be leaving Manchester United 2

A couple of days ago, I published something brief dismissing the rumours linking Javier Hernandez with a move away from Manchester United. Fiorentina, Real Madrid, and a few other clubs have all been suggested as possible destinations for the Mexican, each with a varying degree of silliness and fabrication. Anyway, around about that time, this(…)

Ending the rumours about Javier Hernandez leaving Manchester United 1

Just…stop it. Another day, another rumour linking Javier Hernandez with a move away from Manchester United - this time to Fiorentina. Rubbish, he’s going nowhere. In modern club football, a side who play Manchester United’s system need to have four forwards to compete evenly across all competitions. Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie, Danny Welbeck, and(…)

Why Javier Hernandez isn’t leaving Manchester United 0

There have been lots of rumours in the press about Javier Hernandez leaving Manchester United, and possibly being used as bait in a deal for one of Real Madrid’s players. Like all rumoured deals that involve swaps or exchanges, it’s extremely unlikely. Javier Hernandez dropped off a little bit last season - he contributed 12(…)

Best & Worst of the weekend: QPR & Manchester United 0

Best… Paddy Kenny’s save from Barry Bannan’s free-kick This was much more impressive than it actually looks. One of the trade-offs a goalkeeper makes by setting a wall, is that they sacrifice the ability to properly see the ball at the point of contact. That’s why if the free-kick taker gets the ball ‘up-and-down’ well(…)

Early Morning Notes: Arsenal & Benzema, Real Madrid, Man United, and Wembley 0

The Daily Mirror has put a little bit of a dampener on Arsenal’s Summer transfer ambitions, publishing a feature this morning in which Karim Benzema is quoted about his determination to stay at Real Madrid and fight for his place.

Manchester United: Three Moments That Defined The Season

Manchester United: Three Moments That Defined The Season 1

As the season comes to a close, we’re obviously going to have come up with more and more original ways of filling these pages. A good starting point is probably to milk the past season for what it’s worth - and we’ll do this with every club - but here are the three defining moments(…)

5 things we’ve learnt 0

After an unpleasant email from the Guardian, containing many errors of punctuation and spelling obviously, we’ve changed the name of this feature… but only very slightly, because we’re clever like that. We were wrong again about West Ham… Last week we acknowledged that West Ham may have had some fight in them. Obviously, given the(…)
