Predicted Man United starting XI vs Newcastle (M.E.N.)

Time for another Man United Starting XI prediction as the Newcastle United match draws near.  It will be interesting to see what Louis van Gaal can patchwork together given the various line-ups he’s used this season.

The next person who writes or produces a “Duke does it the right way” storyline automatically and instantly loses their credibility. The idea of Mike Krzyzewski being wholesome and pure died yesterday. Not that we ever believed he was innocent to begin with, but...

As Di Maria hits new low, Rooney and Van Gaal come to his defense

It’s not news that Angel Di Maria has been a huge bust since he arrived at Manchester United. Even Di Maria himself admits that he things haven’t gone quite as well as he (and everyone else in the Red Devils camp) had hoped.
