Republik Of Mancunia at related • 0 views

Philipp Lahm has claimed that Manchester United approached to sign him when Sir Alex Ferguson was still the manager, but the defender turned us down. In an interview with Squawka, he claims he was open to a move to the Premier League but is glad he decided to stay with boyhood club.

As a player you always think about your options, and there was a time where Manchester United made an approach for me – and Barcelona looked at me too – so I considered life in England or Spain.

Yesterday, the defenders were rated for their performances in the 2014-15 season, and now it's the midfielders' turn.

After years of frustration at Sir Alex Ferguson's refusal to buy new midfielders and improve this area on the park, we finally now have a half decent midfield. In fact, the midfield is now our strongest position.

Five key thoughts following Louis van Gaal’s first season at Manchester United

Republik Of Mancunia at related • 0 views

There we have it. Louis van Gaal's first season in charge of Manchester United is over and what a rollercoaster it has been. From an early season injury plague to constant switches in formation to embarrassing results against lower league opposition, there have been many problems along the way but in the end, the Red Devils did the minimum required and returned to the Champions League after just one season out.

RoM PLAYER RATINGS: United’s defence

RoM will be rating the performances of our players a position at a time, starting today with the defenders. For all the criticism they have received this season, it's worth pointing out that only Chelsea (32), Southampton (33), and Arsenal (36) conceded fewer goals than United (37) this season.

However, when you consider that David de Gea has proven himself to be one of the best, if not the best, goalkeeper in the world this season, the defence has certainly had a helping hand.

Casillas: I will compete with De Gea for starting role

Iker Casillas has given an interview with Spanish radio station, Cadena Ser, where he has hinted that David de Gea will be at Real Madrid next season.

I'm delighted with the competition. My contract does not say I have to start. I would like to finish my career here. De Gea is a really nice boy and a goalkeeper for the present and future.

Nicky Butt – A scrapper not a fighter

Watching football, and United in particular, is a visceral experience, a sharp, intense mess of bodies, noise and smells. So it's not surprising that the majority of fan favourites are linked by a single trait: they are men with whom it is deeply unwise to fuck. In my own lifetime, that includes Remi Moses, Bryan Robson, Norman Whiteside, Mark Hughes, Paul Ince, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, Jaap Stam, Wes Brown, Ruud van Nistelrooy – sadly, in theory only Nemanja Vidic, and though, Rojo shows promise, none of the current ponces.
