With over £1 billion drained out of the club since The Glazers stepped foot in Manchester and over a decade of the club being poorly run, it's time to end the rot. Glazers Out!

"#GlazersOut is a harmless hashtag"

"Reds protest on Twitter but don’t turn up when there’s a chance to show their faces - So what gives?"

It seems like some people are still living in the stone-age - either that or they are just too narrow-minded to embrace a fresh and modern form of protest. Yes, a protest, not a 'protest'.

First of all, let me a...

#GlazersOut was trending worldwide on Wednesday night. It seems that our fanbase are once again waking up to the much, much bigger issues at our football club.

It's easy to jump on a bandwagon, in fact on this occasion I absolutely encourage it - but it's important for fans to realise how big of a problem The Glazers are for Manchester United.

In the lull of another International break, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking – primarily about football and Manchester United.

There’s been a lot of talk about Manchester United, as there always is, with a lot of fingers being pointed in various directions, mainly at the manager, as is often the case in football. In the absence of any ‘proper f...

I guess you can class this as an open letter to the FA, Premier League, media and anyone else who’s listening with the ability to make an impact, and improve our shambolic footballing efforts as a nation.

I think I speak on behalf of every England football fan across the nation when I say I’ve had enough. I’ve had enough of the yes-men, I’ve had...

Diving, as ever, is the topic on everyone’s lips. With the introduction of retrospective bans for players cheating this season, a whole new can of worms has been opened.

If a player successfully cons the referee, and wins a free-kick or penalty, the FA will retrospectively ban the player BUT, if a player gets booked for diving, that’s as far as t...

After a hectic Summer Transfer Window, and the Premier League money tree seemingly ever-growing, transfer fees just keep rising and rising. Transfer records have been obliterated in the last couple of years, with most clubs breaking their own personal records – Here is the record signing for every Premier League club to date.

The Ballon d’Or, the individual pinnacle for footballers across the globe. The roll of honour includes many of the games greats, from Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to Pele and Maradona – but not every great player has managed to make it. Here’s my countdown of the 5 best players to never win the Ballon d’Or…

Before I start, let me just say that I’m a huge fan of Gary Neville’s and it’s not often I disagree with him but regarding the Mane challenge, in my opinion, he is 100% wrong.

Yes, football is a game of interpretation, which is why video technology will be hard to implement, but when someone gets kicked in the head, intentional or not, it’s a red...

It’s been gruelling, so many big names have missed out on my All-Time XI, but we’ve got just one position to fill – the striker. Here’s how the line-up looks so far;

So, without further ado, here’s the striker shortlist.

Gerd Muller

Perhaps the most clinical striker of all-time, Muller was known for his instinctive finishing, especially in and arou...

We’re at the forwards now, it’s been challenging to get to this point but it’s about to get even harder. In my side, I’ll have two forwards and one striker, the striker being decided in a separate shortlist. I’ve decided to separate forwards and strikers, essentially having a shortlist of players who operated better slightly deeper and another s...
