1. United roll back the years

Thrilling forward play and deadly counterattacks are what a younger generation of Manchester United fans were brought up on. If this season's Premier League title looks beyond Louis Van Gaal's team, Old Trafford is being presented with a vision of an imminent future in which their team might soon compete with Chelsea and Manchester City.

Two first half goals from Wayne Rooney and a Robin van Persie header propelled Manchester United 3-1 past Newcastle United.

Roy Keane's latest autobiography showed there was no love lost between the former Manchester United captain and Sir Alex Ferguson. Keane gave plenty of interviews to expand on his dislike of his former manager and criticised Ferguson whenever possible.

However, there were parts of the book that painted Ferguson in a more favourable manner and showed that Keane wasn't afraid to reflect on the manager's positive moments.

"I played under good managers, bad managers. The top managers get a feel...

Tottenham, Man United meet on the cusp of achieving their objectives

The ESPN FC panel preview Week 19's much-anticipated match between Manchester United and Tottenham at White Hart Lane in the Premier League.

Very few associated with Manchester United will recall 2014 as their favourite year. It shall be remembered as the year the club came loose of its bearings, abandoned a devotion to slow-burning stability and broke the bank to try to recover.

Two matches against Tottenham Hotspur will bookend 2014. New Year's Day saw a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford end a spell of optimism for the troubled, doomed reign of former manager David Moyes. That evening, a befuddled Moyes was forced to admit his team had already...

With the winter transfer window edging closer, rumours and reports have been growing surrounding a move to Manchester United for the jet-heeled forward but those reports can be taken with a pinch of salt -- for the time being.

The Old Trafford club is reported to be weighing-up...
