Daniel Levy, a man I'd never paid much attention to before, popped up on United's radar this summer, amidst our battle for Dimitar Berbatov.

United Fans Tough On Disloyal Players… Unlike Liverpool

The anger vented in Cristiano Ronaldo's direction over the summer has slowly begun to disappear, with more and more fans jumping to the defence of the wantaway Portuguese winger.

Tomasz Kuszczak was given a start in last night's Premiership game against West Ham, although had little opportunity to impress the manager. United fan Dean Ashton scored a brilliant goal in the fixture last season, but he is injured, leaving West Ham with very few options up front. Craig Bellamy was predictably useless and the [.

Gloves Are Off… Calderon Claims Fergie Is Going “Senile”

Just last week, Real Madrid were tripping over themselves in praise of Manchester United, talking of how "nice and friendly" we are. Cute.

This is a rare post for RoM, as it has absolutely nothing to do with Manchester United.

Wayne Rooney saw a first half goal wrongly ruled out when we played West Brom a couple of weeks ago. "You understand that referees make mistakes, players make mistakes," said Rooney.

The shock of the week had to be Harry Redknapp deserting Portsmouth, again, in favour for the job at Tottenham Hotspur.

It's always a tough situation when you're watching a game between two teams you want to see lose.

Greek teenager, Kyriakos Papadopoulos, has been occupying several headlines over the past few months after a host of clubs have made it known they are keen on luring him away from Olympiakos.

Darren Fletcher has had even some of his harshest critics singing his praises recently, following solid performances last season in the big games, as well as a good start to this campaign.

Fabien Bathez had a great season in 2000-2001, helping United to our third successive title and leading people to believe we had the replacement for Peter Schmeichel.

Fergie: Kenyon’s Move To Chelsea Wasn’t A Loss

Peter Kenyon, the man all United fans love to hate (and even some of the Chelsea fans!). If ever there was true example of the mercenary nature that modern football has brought about, Kenyon fits the bill. A supposedly dyed-in-the-wool United fan, Kenyon jumped ship the moment Roman Abramovich showed up at Chelsea with more [.

Fergie Lost Faith In God In Moscow Against Chelsea

After Cristiano Ronaldo missed his penalty, I was just waiting for Chelsea to miss one of theirs. I was uncomfortable, but I wasn't panicking. It was only as John Terry stepped up that the reality of the situation hit home. There were no second chances after this. If Terry scored, it was all over. Fifty [.

Things just aren't going our way at the moment. Whatever the reason, our players haven't quite clicked yet. Has the inclusion of Dimitar Berbatov upset the rhythm?

Jose Mourinho has an impressive resume, with his league titles and Portugal and England, as well as his European Cup win with Porto, yet he is still some way short of deserving a job at Manchester United.

Since signing for United, Wayne Rooney has always had a brilliant relationship with our fans.

Three former United players made up the Everton starting XI today, the most recent of these to move being Louis Saha, who spent too much time on the treatment table to keep his place in our squad.

Wayne Rooney was subbed off in our 1-1 draw with Everton today, much to the surprise of our fans.

Cristiano Ronaldo's diving is an issue which I have a mixed approach to.

Wayne Rooney is flavour of the month for England at the moment, following a spell of hype surrounding his under form performances.
