Post-break fixture the perfect time to give Januzaj a shot

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says his side are not "in balance" ahead of their Premier League trip to West Bromwich Albion.

When David Moyes gave Adnan Januzaj his debut 12 months ago he was repaid with two goals and one of the brightest starts a United player has had in years. "In all my time he is one of the best young players I have worked with," Moyes said recently. But has Januzaj been marginalised by United's summer spending spree?

In recent weeks, Januzaj has had to content himself with life in the under-21s, for whom he scored a hat trick before the international break, and life on the bench at Old Trafford....

Footballers never forget their first-team debuts

Relive some of the most memorable moments from Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi's 10-year career at the Camp Nou.

Lionel Messi made his Barcelona debut a decade ago, on Oct. 16, 2004. I remember it well, sitting in the main stand at Barcelona's Olympic Stadium during a derby against Espanyol. Barca's No. 30 replaced Deco for the last eight minutes; Barca won 1-0. He sported a heavy fringe and wore a shirt that looked too big for him as it flapped in the wind of the exposed stadium atop the hill of Montjuic. Messi saw a lot of the ball, but not everyone was happy for him. His teammates in Barca B had hoped that...

Judgment Day: After three months, how has Louis van Gaal fared?

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson shares his support for new manager Louis van Gaal.

Upon his arrival at Manchester United, Louis van Gaal claimed it would take him three months to embed his new philosophy. Three months to the day later, has Van Gaal fulfilled his promise?


United fans were probably expecting more highs than they have actually experienced so far this season, following the introduction of Van Gaal, his new style of football and transformed squad.

The performances in the opening games were utterly anticlimactic, which set things up nicely for the emphatic display...

Gary Neville tears apart Ryan Giggs' famous FA Cup goal

Having conquered the world of football punditry largely thanks to facing almost zero resistance from his peers, it would seem that Gary Neville is now making the move into stand-up comedy.

Appearing on screen at the HMV Football Extravaganza evening in London on Tuesday evening, Neville used his giant touchscreen to tear into Ryan Giggs' famous, perhaps career-defining solo goal against Arsenal in the FA Cup in 1999 -- with tongue firmly lodged in cheek, we might add!

We should also point out that...

Seeing double ... TWO Marouane Fellainis turn up to Man Utd

Panic spread among Manchester United fans when photos circulated on social media appearing to show not one but two Marouane Fellainis turning up for training together on Thursday morning.

Agitated at the thought of having two identical blustering Belgians clanging around aimlessly in their midfield, some worried fans looked into the phenomenon and were relieved to find that, rather than Fellaini having a clone, the driver of the car was in fact the United man's younger brother. For reasons not entirely...

Manchester United must act swiftly with De Gea contract

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson shares his support for new manager Louis van Gaal.

In 1996 Manchester United renamed their player of the year award to honour the former manager Sir Matt Busby. The previous summer, United had sold the then-current holder, Andrei Kanchelskis, along with another former winner Mark Hughes, and Paul Ince. Almost 20 years later, could the club be about to lose the present player of the year again?

The significance of David De Gea becoming Spain's goalkeeper last Sunday was lost on nobody. Iker Casillas, like his contemporary Petr Cech at Chelsea,...
