Patrice Evra reveals reason for Man Utd returnby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the lovePatrice Evra has revealed he is back at Manchester United to make sure the players know what I means to play for the club. The former United left-back is undertaking his coaching badges at Carrington and was in attendance for the U23s and women’s clashes over the weekend.”I’m just here because it’s my home and I’m completing my coaching badges and what better place to do it than at home,” Evra said. “I’ve come to support the women and to make sure all players know that when you wear that shirt you have to understand you carry history on your back I’m here to make sure people understand what it means to play for this club.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Man Utd legend Neville: Kids have no chance without leadersby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Gary Neville says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team lack leaders.While Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Scott McTominay are all academy products trying to mimic their predecessors’ success, Neville says the absence of leadership in the squad will ultimately cost them.Speaking on his podcast for Sky Sports, Neville said: “I pointed out on Sunday [during a 2-0 defeat at West Ham] at the £900m that has been spent in the last seven or eight years, and there’s nothing left of it really.”There are the bones of a squad, some young players from the academy that haven’t cost that money. Potentially David de Gea, who is struggling. There’s Harry Maguire but there’s a lot more rebuilding to do.”I’ve said many times that Alan Hansen was right, you don’t win anything with kids.”The Class of ’92 didn’t win that Premier League title. We had Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Roy Keane, Eric Cantona, Brian McClair and Peter Schmeichel. We had world-class performers and two of the best centre backs ever.”Keane was the most inspirational captain and leader, Cantona was world-class, Schmeichel was the best in the world and Dennis Irwin was brilliant.”They pulled us through it. If the Class of ’92 had gone into this team, we would have had no chance.”

Solskjaer: Man Utd players fitter than everby Paul Vegasa day agoSend to a friendShare the loveOle Gunnar Solskjaer says his Manchester United team are fitter than ever.The Red Devils face a four match stretch away from home, kicking off on Thursday against Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League.But Solskjaer insists his players are physically prepared for the challenge.Speaking to us about the upcoming fixture list and the challenge it represents, the manager said: “It’s going to be tough for the boys but they’ve got to be mentally and physically ready for this.”We’ve trained hard and we’re fitter than we’ve ever been. In the Liverpool game we outran them and I don’t think anyone would have thought that about us last season. “The boys have got a different engine now and that was a big, big plus when you looked at how fit we were and how far we ran on Sunday. That was a big bonus to me and I think it’s going to take us through the next six games before the next international break.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Nick Saban HospitalAlabama coach Nick Saban has always been one to give back. Tuesday night, that fact was on display, yet again.

Ohio State Fan MichiganOhio State fans don’t give a damn for the whole state of Michigan. Apparently, that means some won’t even allow themselves to work there.Derrick Martin, a Buckeyes fan from Jackson, Ohio, who is currently applying for jobs, told his recruiter that he doesn’t want to be considered for any jobs in Michigan. You can guess his reasoning.Had a job recruiter wanting me to apply and interview at a job in the state up north.
