Rene Meulensteen has joined the list of former Manchester United employees to stick the boot in. Meulensteen admits he doesn't like Louis van Gaal, meaning his criticism shouldn't come as a surprise, but he claims he is worried about the future of the club if Ryan Giggs leaves.

The player most deserving of a statue at Old Trafford will probably never get one

Republik Of Mancunia at related • 1 view

Old Trafford has had many heroes over the years. This is unsurprising, given the club's rich history. Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson, orchestrators of the two great periods of sustained success, have been immortalised, in statue form, outside the ground. Sir Matt gazes into the distance, where the holy trinity of Charlton, Law and Best celebrate together, a monument of glory from a now distant age.

Howard deserves criticism for his performance against Chelsea

Asking for improvement from a goalkeeper who has conceded six goals isn't brain surgery. For the last couple of seasons, Tim Howard has been rightly heralded as one of the best goalkeepers in the league.

There's not really any other word to describe both the performance and the feelings that ensued following last night's abomination. It initially brought back memories of a horrendous evening at Upton Park in the Carling Cup back in 2010 when we collapsed 4-0 that evening during a wretched display.
