Here's Steven Gerrard's Final Liverpool-Man United Match In Its Entirety

Steven Gerrard made sure his final match in the Liverpool-Manchester United rivalry was a memorable one, but not in the way he'd have hoped.

Ángel Di María Gets Ice Grill, Then Red Card For Grabbing Ref

This Louis Van Gaal-Sam Allardyce Long Ball Beef Is Really Stupid

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal shrugs off most criticisms with a sneer and a reminder of his groaning trophy shelf. "What can you possibly tell me," his look says, "Louis the Great?"

Manchester United Are Back Where They Belong, But Can It Last?

Well, they've done it. They've survived the year from hell, with a hopelessly overmatched manager, a rumored but never unveiled treasure chest meant to revitalize a squad whose actual age was catching up to their prematurely graying and receding hairlines, a humiliating season of unending self-inflicted calamities,… » 12/09/14 11:38am 12/09/14 11:38am
