RVP and Januzaj deserve time

Man Utd fans wrong to write off Van Persie and Januzaj despite concerns

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal still thinks his team can win the Premier League despite being ten points behind Premier League leaders, Chelsea.

When Manchester United were first linked with signing Robin van Persie from Arsenal in the summer of 2012, the fans were fairly dismissive.

United very rarely signed players who were already at their peak, so Van Persie -- having won the Golden Boot in the previous season as well as being named the PFA and FWA Player of the Year -- certainly wasn't their usual type.

Having just lost the title on goal difference to Manchester City, United were in need of something special, though, and the supporters...

Who deserves the blame for Manchester United's struggles?

ESPN FC's Craig Burley does not believe Alex Ferguson when he says David Moyes' failures were not his fault.

Manchester United are in decline, and Sir Alex Ferguson has used the publication of his new, updated autobiography to deny that he is to blame. David Moyes told the BBC last week that he thought the club were at fault because they failed to support him last season. You sense that Louis van Gaal couldn't care less who's to blame or what you think, but he definitely won't be accepting responsibility anytime soon either.

Never has it been more true that success has many fathers and failure is an orphan.

Manchester United's stalling engine room continues to hold them back

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden says he believes Manchester United will finish in the top four of the Premier League, much to the dismay of former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol.

Roy Keane is busy hawking his new book, and as part of another round of promotions, the former Manchester United captain recalled an old team talk from Sir Alex Ferguson lasting just three words.

"Lads, it's Tottenham," said Fergie, before walking out -- the implication being that Spurs would be no match for United's supreme authority.

But after Monday's limp 2-2 draw against West Brom and indeed the matches against Leicester, Burnley and Sunderland, one can imagine other Premier League managers...

Gerard Pique to make Man United return, Mou says no to January needs

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hinted that he has cooled his interest in signing free-agent goalkeeper Victor Valdes.
Gerard Pique once called Old Trafford home. If the latest rumours about the Barcelona defender are true, he might be making a Manchester United homecoming very soon.

January will be here before you know it! To tide us over until then, here's today's batch of rumours and gossip.

Pique making United return?

He played only 12 league games for Sir Alex Ferguson during his four seasons with Manchester United, but if the latest from The Daily Star is true, Gerard Pique could pad those stats very soon.

Louis van Gaal and Manchester United are still looking for help on defence (they could have used it on Monday against West Brom). Now, the 27-year-old Pique is tops...

Average Manchester United saved by Marouane Fellaini

The ESPN FC team analyse Manchester United's disappointing performance against West Bromwich Albion.

Louis van Gaal's team have yet to win away in the league, a record that at least the beleaguered David Moyes could point to with some pride last season. Here, though they scored two very fine goals, they were undone with disconcerting ease on the break and struggled for fluency throughout. A point at the Hawthorns, on balance, is not a poor result, but it is not the stuff of which pushes for UEFA Champions League places are made -- particularly with such stern challenges immediately ahead.

Three Points: West Brom vs. Manchester United

Manchester United fell behind twice but fought back to earn a 2-2 draw on the road at The Hawthorns.

WEST BROMWICH, England -- A trio of observations on West Brom and Manchester United's 2-2 draw in the Premier League.

1. Blind saves blushes

Louis van Gaal's Manchester United were yet to score beyond the 63rd minute of any Premier League game. Lead by then and you had the formula for success against the misfiring millionaires.

This time, though, Daley Blind bucked the stats. With a calm swipe of his left foot in the 87th minute, he prevented another away-day disaster. West Brom fans dreamed...
