BREAKING NEWS: UNITED'S KEY MAN ENDS SEASON ON THE OPERATING TABLE

The small Spanish midfield magician and goal creator Juan Mata underwent groin surgery on Thursday. He has thus been added to the list of squad absentees.


The sad news however is that

DEPLETED UNITED TEAM: POSSIBLE LINEUP AGAINST WESTBROM

Manchester United, on the back of a two week break, are entering in to a very busy period of football.
In fact calling it busy is a massive understatement, just like underestimating the service the "I better pass my neighbour" generator has rendered to the 'Naija'  populace over the years.

ANTONIO ' DEDE-ONE-WAY' VALENCIA IS PLAYER OF THE MONTH OF MARCH.

The man who was once known to play 'one-way traffic' football has become a phenomenon under the Mourinho led 'government' at Old Trafford. His performances have been rewarded with

UNITED'S MARCH STORY: WHO DESERVES TO BE CROWNED HERO?

It was a hectic month of MARCH for Manchester united- a month of mixed feelings. United "MARCHED" out of the FA cup at the hands of bad 'bele'  rivals Chelsea.  However, in the same month, United "MARCHED" out of the infamous 6th position after spending over a 100 days in 'office'.

United also "MARCHED" into the quarter final of the Europa league (our "backyard door" to champions league next season) after beating the Russian 'Mafias' , FC Rostov.

The club finally put forward a trio of warriors who were involved in the MARCH battles for Player of the month award.

MARCUS  ROJO
The powerful and rugged Argentine was rock solid this month, adapting so well to Mourinho's new 3-4-3  formation, and was rewarded with his 1st ever premier league goal against Bournemouth. He was also rewarded with "Ogede"-Banana on the pitch this month.


ASHLEY YOUNG
The versatile winger was key for United following the loss of several …

'ENEMIES AT WORK' : INJURIES ROCK UNITED AGAIN

Oh how I hate international breaks. They starve fans of football - filled weekends and force us to surrender remote controls all over the world to 'Papa Ajasco' and 'Telemundo' fans.
To add insult to injury, there is hardly an international  break that goes by without key players returning with injuries.

Middlesbrough 1-3 Manchester United: WHAT I LEARNT

1. LINGARD IS NOT JUST AN 'AWILO' DANCER.
Jesse Lingard proved today that his only duty at United is not to dance "Awilo" when Pogba scores. Brilliant performance, creative, full of pace and determination. Arguably his best performance in a United shirt, capped with that brilliant goal, his first league goal in 13months. Man of the match.

MANCHESTER UNITED 1-0 ROSTOV FC (Europa league) : WHAT I LEARNT

1. IS MOURINHO DOING A CONTE?
The boss set up with a 3-4-2-1 formation today, retaining his back 3 formation similar to his latest arch rival and Successor, Antonio Conte. This was totally unexpected. The lads however looked comfortable. Is this the dawn of a new formation in United?


2. VACANCY AT OLD TRAFFORD
United is in urgent need of a deputy goal scorer. The team's over-dependance on Zlatan for goals is becoming scary. A beautiful and  fluid display today was almost ruined by the 'Goal Recession'. Panic had started setting in until Juan Mata 'Okeke' came to the rescue.....assisted "Coke-astically" by Zlatan.



3. MOU NOW REALIZES THAT ROJO IS A TERRIBLE LEFT-BACK
Rojo has constantly pressed the 'vex button' of fans whenever he played as a left back for United. His best performances in contrast, have come from the centre back position. I guess his boss now REALIZES, as he opted to play JONES there after Blind was subbed off



4. MOU GAVE THE RUSSI…

Manchester United CONFIRMED Starting line-up vs Rostov ( Europa league)

The boss has made some changes to his team. There's a change both in the starting XI and the team's formation.

Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United: WHAT I LEARNT

1. A DISPLAY TO BE PROUD OF.
United may have lost, but indeed the  Never-say-die attitude of the boys was fantastic. United came as the disadvantaged side and despite further  going 1-man down, fought the good fight of "faith".


2. MICHAEL OLIVER WAS THE MAN-OF-THE-MATCH.
The cute-looking ref famous for showing red cards to the reds, spoilt a beautiful game game of football. With it without the red card, Chelsea may have won, but that was simply adding stew to "Jollof rice".


3. MOU CAME WITH WITH A TRUCK LOAD OF DEFENDERS.
Understanding his disadvantaged position, Mou set up with with a 5-3-2 formation, using Ashley Young to switch to a 6-3-1 when defending. Most of the players especially Mikhi struggled to cope with the new formation.



4. DE GEA, SAVING UNITED SINCE 1800
Once gain, the young Spaniard had his magnet gloves on, making crucial saves which kept United in the game. Pity, it didn't count in the end. He was amazing again......Valencia and Rojo also de…

BREAKING NEWS : Disaster strikes at Old Trafford ahead of crunch clash with Chelsea

The unprecedented has happened. Manchester United has been hit with the worst injury crisis of the season, less than 24 hours to the quarter final match with 'bad bele' rivals Chelsea.


With our talk-na-do striker , Pa Zlatan " Ekwueme " Ibrahimovic  ruled out following his 3-Match  ban, all the other striker options  in the team have also been ruled out. 
Anthony Martial and 'wizkid' Rashford have been ruled out with illness, while the 250-goal legend, Wayne Rooney has been ruled out with injury. And so, United travel to Stamford Bridge without a recognized striker. 
Mourinho thus has a selection headache: Who should be his make-shift striker? Is it over for Manchester United?
