A look at the records smashed as United smiled home with The EFL cup

Manchester United lifted their first piece of major silverware this season with a hard fought win against a well drilled Southampton last Sunday. Here's a look at the records broken after the final whistle:

UNITED 3-2 SOUTHAMPTON : FIVE THINGS WE LEARNT FROM UNITED'S EFL CUP FINAL WIN

1. NERVY AND POOR FIRST HALF.
United started off like a fan blade working on low voltage. They served the fans with cold "adrenaline beer"- the tension was intense: Mata was suffocated out wide, Lingard lacked

Confirmed Manchester United starting line-up vs Southampton

Manchester United captain remains on the bench ahead of crucial clash with Southampton. The end of the road for Wazza???......Let's go United!!!

Predicted Manchester United lineup for the EFL cup final after unfortunate team news.

Jose Mourinho confirmed in his latest team update during Friday's press conference that Henrikh Mhkhitaryan was absolutely going to miss the EFL cup final, due to the injury sustained immediately after scoring the winner at St. Etienne.

UNITED DISCOVER EUROPA LEAGUE ROUND OF 16 OPPONENTS

Manchester United and the rest of the teams finally got their minds at rest after the little anxious wait as regards their next opponents in the Europa league.

BREAKING NEWS: ROONEY IGNORES THE 'MOLUE' GOING TO CHINA

Manchester United captain, Wayne Roomey has quenched all speculation linking him with a move away from the club before next week, when the transfer window of the Chinese 'super money' league closes.

SAINT ETIENNE 0-1 MANCHESTER UNITED (Agg 0-4) : FIVE THINGS WE LEARNT FROM THE CLASH

1. It was a somewhat boring display from Manchester United. The team played like an engine trying to start without a spark plug.

2. Once again, Fellaini confused me. What role did he play today? Defensive midfielder, attacking midfielder, holding midfielder or goalkeeper? I guess he just completed the squad number.....very anonymous display from the Afro Belgian.

3. Another wonderfully crafted  Mikhi-Mata goal was the only bright spark in the game. Daily Blind was also brilliant today.

4. The transition of play between  the midfield and attack was painfully slow. Unsurprising though, considering the midfield pairing of Carrick - Fellaini - Pogba.

5. The birthday boy Sergio Romero celebrated his birthday with a clean sheet...7 clean sheets and 2 goals conceeded in 9 cup games is not bad for the Argentine. We wish him many more clean sheets.

.....In the end, United has cruised into the next Round of the Europa league. JOB DONE!! The "Thursday Thursday football" continues ( We…

MANCHESTER UNITED CONFIRMED LINE-UP vs ST ETIENNE.

Kick off : 18:00 GMT (6pm Nigerian time).

GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SERGIO 'SMILING' ROMERO

We send birthday wishes to our fantastic ever smiling backup (power bank) goalkeeper. More clean sheets to your gloves.

GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED



POGBA-HIMOVIC: STATS THAT PROVE THIS IS THE MOST SUPERB COLLABO IN WORLD FOOTBALL

The collabo between Paul 'Ikenna' Pogba and Zlatan 'Ekwueme' Ibrahimovic is reminiscent of how smoothly the popular Nigerian food - 'Eba' and Okro soup glides through the 'throat' into the stomach.

BLACKBURN 1-2 MANCHESTER UNITED : FIVE THINGS WE LEARNT AS UNITED 'BURNT' BLACKBURN OUT OF THE FA CUP

1.  A MIXED DAY FOR THE RESERVES
Ashley Young and Marcus Rashford made good cases for first choice on the rotation lists, with Darmian and Lingard proving time and time again that they deserve to wear the red shirt of Cardiff city rather than Manchester United.

2. HENRIKH  MKHITARYAN
What a player, what an assist. Forgiven for his sloppy play and trying to over decorate

POGBA OR POG-BAR?

The long awaited match up of the Pogba brothers has now come and gone, with our very own Paul 'Ikenna' Pogba's team coming out on top with a convincing 3-0 win.

MANCHESTER UNITED 3 - 0 SAINT ETIENNE: FIVE THINGS WE LEARNT FROM THE CLASH

Manchester United saw off Europa League round of 32 opponents St. Etienne at Old Trafford today, with Pa Zlatan 'Ekwueme' Ibrahimovic stealing all the headlines with a hattrick to sum the score up at 3-0.

Here are five things ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the clash;

IT'S POGBA vs POGBA AT OLD TRAFFORD

Two days after Valentine's day, the love between brothers is set to be put to the test at Old Trafford. Manchester United vs Saint Etienne will witness two brothers trade tackles.

What would their mother want?
What would their wives/girlfriends want? What would Manchester United fans want?

Kick-off: 21.05 GMT (9.05pm Nigerian time)

GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.

SAME TIME SAME STATION LAST YEAR; THE ROCKY DAYS OF SINGING #LVGout HYMNS.

"Sunderland 2-1 Man Utd: WHAT I LEANRT.
1. Deserved 3 points for the black Cats; champions league spot slipping away @ 180km/hr!  A Deja-vu of Moyes era. 2. Another goal conceded in the final 10minutes ruins my evening. Na so 'FERGIE TIME' come turn

MANCHESTER UNITED 2-0 WATFORD: FIVE THINGS WE LEARNT

1. Mourinho started with a high pressing 4-2-3-1 formation, with Mikhi slotting into the Trequartista role beautifully well again today.

2. Anthony 'Ikechukwu' Martial needs to rediscover his deadly form fast. With more games like this, United would have begun her own M.M.M scheme: Mata-Mikhi-Martial. Chai!

3. Juan is a special one: the small man with a BIG football brain. His link-up  play was lovely to behold. I even hear 'Tiki-Taka' has been renamed 'Mikhi-Mata'.

4. The most beautiful part of United's game today  was the aggression, the hunger, the passionate play and the constant picking up of the 2nd ball.

5. Herrera has evolved from a smallish sleeky creative midfielder to a midfield warrior, and an excellent ball-winning midfielder. He may become the long lost heir to King Roy Keane's throne!

......Finally, finally, even if it's for only 2 hours, United has stepped out of 6th position.(Wetin???). Let's enjoy it while it lasts.

GLORY GLOR…

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON; 'OGA FELA' VISITS MOURINHO'S BARBER

This season, Barbers have been 'Delilahs' to the Manchester United crew.


Playback Pogba; After his visit to the barber,he produced his worst performance in a United shirt against Liverpool.

Playback Mourinho; After his visit to the barber, United's unbeaten run was ended by a relegation threatened side.

Now Oga 'Fela'. May he not score a hattrick of own goals against Watford

GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED!


ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC: BREAKING RECORDS WITH A 'WALKING STICK'.

Another day, another article on who else other than our very own phenomenal talk-na-do striker, Pa Zlatan "Ekwueme" Ibrahimovic.


LEICESTER CITY 0-3 MANCHESTER UNITED: FIVE THINGS WE LEARNT.

1. Mourinho reverted to his traditional 4-2-3-1 formation with Mikhi playing the Trequartista role. The squad had a lot of pace and forward movements which paid off.

2. I remember the cries of LVG; "We don't have a 20-goal a season striker". Today we had him in the person of Zlatan 'Ekwueme' Ibrahimovic. Kudos to our 'talk-na-do' striker on his 20th goal of the season.

3. The chemistry (abi Physics sef) between Mata and Mikhitaryan was magical today. They both deserved their goals.

4. It felt good to see Mr Eric 'No-Nonsense' Baily back to the team today. He is always a delight to watch and a nightmare for strikers. Which well did he throw  the key he used in locking up Vardy?

5. Valencia's beautiful games continued. He celebrated his recent award as player of the month with another fine display.....and a pretty assist.

...A beautiful victory in the end. It appears Leicester City have been our best customers this season. May we be delivered f…

CHELSEA 3-1 ARSENAL: MANCHESTER UNITED HAS A NEW CLUB-FRIEND FOR VALENTINE.

There is a famous saying that "if you cannot beat them, you join them". With the 3-1 grinding of Arsenal today and going 12 points clear, Chelsea can only lose the league if they decide to offer it as a Valentine gift to any other team.

This means that United may very well forget about the English Premier League trophy this year. Therefore if we cannot dethrone them, let us pray for them whenever they play Liverpool, Tottenham , Arsenal or Man City .


Painful as it may sound,a victory for Chelsea against any of these, is a victory for United. GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ANTONIO "DEDE-ONE-WAY" VALENCIA.

His recent stellar performances for Manchester United have not gone unnoticed. The 'I must tuck-in my shirt" Ecuadorian has been one of the most improved players under Jose Mourinho this season and has been rewarded by being named Manchester United's January Player of the Month.

Valencia has been there for Manchester United through the 'thick' Fergie era and 'thin' Moyes-Van Gaal era- similar to how GALA has been there for Nigerians(N50 from age to age) through all trials and tribulations from fuel subsidy 'wahala' to *CHANGE* 'wahala'.

More grease to his Red Elbow.

GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.

MANCHESTER UNITED 0-0 HULL CITY: FIVE THINGS WE LEARNT.

1. Mourinho got it wrong with the formation today. He played a deep-sitting 4-3-3 formation. This gave  Hull city the impetus to play their game and even attack. Why change the winning 4-1-4-1 system??

2. Whenever Pogba visits the barber, it seems a little of his football sense falls off. He came with an 'old man' style today and played like an old man. Very average performance.

3. Whenever United has a golden opportunity to close the gap with the other top 5 teams, she just has a way of blowing it.. Maka why??

4. The Carrick -Rooney substitution was a complete tactical waste. There wasn't any effect as Rooney was anonymous.

5. Valencia was simply fantastic today. Running @ defenders, creating spaces, defending solidly and pulling  exciting crosses.....My man of the match.

..... It seems Hull City was handed Manchester United's 'Mumu' button for this season. How on earth didn't we beat them again today?? Why do Goalkeepers always have the best games of the…

CONFIRMED MANCHESTER UNITED STARTING XI vs HULL CITY: OUR THOUGHTS

LINE-UP
De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Blind, Ander Herrera, Carrick, Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimovic, Rashford.

1. This had better be a "Revenge" against Hull City  for having the mind to end our 17-game unbeaten run.

2. With Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool slipping up yesterday, it's the perfect opportunity to close-up and even 'Macleans' the gap.

....We may remain 6th @ the end, but let the 6th be a 6th that will make the seat of  our brothers above HOT!!!

GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.
