Manchester United Are (Sort Of) For Real, Apparently

By losing to a surprisingly rampant Arsenal in their previous league game before the international break, Manchester United more or less confirmed our sneaking suspicions about this team’s place in the EPL hierarchy. Their spot in the table may make them technically contenders but there still remains a gap between the… »10/19/15 4:46pm10/19/15 4:46pm

God Smites The Manchesters Because England Sucks

England, man. Their clubs spend all that money on some of the best players in the world, get all that media hype about being the best league in the world, and right as you start to buy into it all they meet a couple underdogs from Europe and prove yet again that England isn’t as good as it’s made out to be.

Man Utd's Luke Shaw Suffers Gruesome, Leg-Breaking Tackle [WARNING: GRAPHIC]

Manchester United full back Luke Shaw had to be carted off the pitch in the first half of their Champions League match against PSV, on a count of a busted leg thanks to the tackle you can see below. Here’s a GIF of Shaw’s flopping leg, which, you’ve been warned, is pretty gnarly:

Manchester United Don't Know Who They Are

It’s tough to make sense of the freighter plane full of cash Manchester United dispatched to Monaco on deadline day, seemingly out of the blue (but not spurred by panic! they are certainly not panicking!), in exchange for relatively little-known French forward prospect Anthony Martial. It would be easy to explain if… »9/08/15 1:43pm9/08/15 1:43pm

The Botched David de Gea Transfer Was A Glorious Clusterfuck

Transfer deadline day is always liable to turn up a couple shockers, either in completed deals from out of nowhere or transfers that appear imminent only to collapse right before the crossing of the final T. Real Madrid’s failed attempted to buy David de Gea from Manchester United is one of the latter, and what a… »9/01/15 12:00pm9/01/15 12:00pm

Chicharito Had A Couple Of Brutal Misses Today

Manchester United hammered Club Brugge 4-0 in Bruges today to advance to the Champions League group stage. Wayne Rooney emphatically ended his goal drought with a hat trick, and United are assured the massive revenue from at least six more Champions League matches. Practically the only Red Devil to have a bad day was… »8/27/15 12:21am8/27/15 12:21am

Manchester United Still Don't Realize They're Not Manchester United Anymore

It’s kind of cute, if in a sad sort of way. Manchester United, once the biggest name in the game, chasing after superstars in the press like a giddy child racing after lightning bugs in the night, hoping to nab one or two like the big clubs can but knowing deep down that it won’t actually happen. »8/26/15 4:43pm8/26/15 4:43pm

The First Goal Of The Premier League Season Is ... An Own Goal

Here it is, the day we’ve all been waiting for: the return of the EPL. Manchester United-Tottenham is our opener, and though Spurs started brightly, all their good work was undone thanks to a terrible pass by Nabil Bentaleb. It wasn’t the prettiest season-christening goal, but we’ll take it. »8/08/15 8:17am8/08/15 8:17am

Phil Jones Falling Down Chasing The Ball Is A Blast In Extreme Slow-Mo

Manchester United drew 1-1 with Arsenal yesterday in a battle of clubs fighting for third place in the Premiership, and the desire to win drove Man United defender Phil Jones to the ground in search of a ball that was just a bit too elusive—no matter how much crawling it took. But even from his hands and knees, Jones… »5/18/15 2:27pm5/18/15 2:27pm
