Republik Of Mancunia at related • 0 views

Other than the one about Anthony Martial, none of the worries outlinedin last month's TOP FIVE have really gone away. Manchester United have, of course, won a trophy since then—which was really nice—but have also missed out on a glorious opportunity to apply more pressure to those currently above them in the league by drawing at home with Bournemouth—which was really, really, really, really frustrating.

There is no right or wrong way to support your football club. It's a deeply personal journey for us all. Yet every club has certain characteristics to which those that love them can all relate. Manchester United is no different.

If every United fan was asked to pick a defining image, a single moment in time, one that summed up what the club meant to them, the images would fill volumes.

London (AFP) – An emotional week in the Manchester United career of Antonio Valencia ended Friday with the announcement he had signed a new contract with the Europa League winners that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2019.

Mourinho: I tried to sign Valencia for Real Madrid

Antonio Valencia was Manchester United's player of the season in 2011-12 and was rewarded with the number 7 shirt. The following season wasn't a good one for him personally, even though United won the 20th league title, so he reverted back to number 25.

Louis van Gaal converted Valencia's position to right-back and it wasn't a totally smooth process, with his concentration and positioning letting him down at times.

United, Mourinho and making a case for the defence

The majority of Jose Mourinho's first season in charge at Manchester United has been dominated by one major issue: his side does not score enough goals. It is hard to argue with the criticism, for while United have only failed to score in five Premier League games this season, their profligacy in front of goal has meant they have struggled to put games to bed, which has in turn seen them drop precious points.
