Following United's dramatic 3-2 comeback against Newcastle, Josè Mourinho appeared to have made abusive/improper remarks to a television camera as he walked down the tunnel. He was subsequently charged by the English FA. Following investigations, the FA has determined that the charges could not be proven. In an official statement, the FA stated that  "A charge against Jose Mourinho for allegedly using language which was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper has been found not proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today [31/10/18],". "It related to an incident at the end of the Manchester United versus Newcastle United game on 6 October 2018. Written Reasons for the decision of the Independent Regulatory Commission will be published in due course. This decision is subject to appeal". It had been rumoured that Josè was to be sacked had United lost to Newcastle. However the boys turned in a vintage Fergie-like

FA Metes Out Punishment for Mourinho vs Chelsea Coach Combat

Chelsea's assistant coach Marco Ianni has been fined £6000 for his 'over-sabi' (exuberant) celebration of Ross Barkley's last minute equalizer for Chelsea two weeks ago. The 'gori-makpa'(bald-headed) coach jumped in front of Mourinho in wild celebration after the goal and immediately almost got beaten by a furious Josè Mourinho. He was lucky that stewards were quick to hold him back, otherwise, the football match would have been converted to a royal rumble! Thankfully, despite Mourinho's reaction, the English FA ruled that the conduct of Coach Ianni was inappropriate and was therefore fined £6000!!  We hope the coach has learnt a lesson and will learn to obey the popular Naija saying; "Dey your lane".   GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.

United 2-1 Everton: 5 Things We Learnt As United Evaporated Everton.

Manchester United welcomed Everton, her favourite 'customer' in the history of the EPL to Old Trafford for another clash on matchday 10. Photo credit: Here are five(5) things ManUtdNaijaFM learnt today: 1. 'MARTIAL ARTS' Anthony "Ikechukwu' Martial put up another dazzling display today. He was a consistent 'Chuku-chuku' (thorn) in the flesh of the Everton defenders. He iced his performance with a 'COKE-astic' goal, after gifting United a penalty in the first half. We want more of 'this Martial'. 2. POGBA: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY. United's 'Swaggerlicious' midfielder had a game with all shades today. From almost missing a penalty, through being at fault for Everton's goal, to finally assisting Martial for his second goal, the French man had it all today. It appears Pickford came ready for him as he denied him severally with some really good saves. 3. ALEXIS NEEDS A SEAT BELT Th

United 0-1 Juventus: 5 Things We Learnt As Juventus Jumped The United Hurdle.

It was another below-par performance by Manchester United as they hosted a CR7-led Juventus at Old Trafford. Here are 5 matters arising from the defeat: 1. TOO MUCH RESPECT From the 1st whistle, one thing was crystal clear: Manchester United kept prostrating at the feet of Juventus like the Yoruba tribe of Naija greeting their 'Kabiyesi'(King). There was too much caution in the play, making the Juventus players so relaxed. From the 75th minute when caution was thrown away, Juventus started making mistakes. If this was started early,........ 2. PUNISHED FOR SLOW START In recent matches, United have had to come from behind to grind out results due to consistent slow starts. Against Juventus, United started badly again, with the usual 'Anywhere-belè-face' football which led to the goal by Dybala. Sadly, there was no chance for recovery. 3. ROMELU 'TIMAYA' LUKAKU  United's 'Striker-in-chief' has failed to find the back of th

Chelsea 2-2 United: 5 Things We Learnt From The Battle At The Bridge

A thrilling game at Stamford Bridge saw Manchester United and Chelsea share the spoils. The Blues seemed headed for yet another chance win against United, until two 'CHIVITAstic' finishes from Martial turned the game in United's favour. Here are Five(5) things ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the clash. 1. ANTHONY 'IKECHUKWU' MARTIAL TO THE RESCUE What a performance on the biggest stage. The French winger scored two 'fearfully and wonderfully' made goals to put United in the lead after going behind to a Chelsea goal. He has now scored 3 goals and assisted 1 in his last 3 starts for United. Another day at the office, proving yet again why he's United's best option on the left. At this point, Alexis Sanchez should either be played on the right wing, or RIGHT BENCH. 2. FIRST HALF 'KPALAVA' Another day, another horrible first half performance from the Red Devils. The Red Devils started the match with their 'anywhere-bele-face&#

United 3-2 Newcastle: 5 Things We Learnt From 'Old School' United

Manchester United welcomed Newcastle to Old Trafford amidst 'amebo' gist up and down pointing at José Mourinho's sack. 2 Newcastle goals in 10 minutes  felt like it was over for United. A Fergie-like 2nd half revival saw United reply with 3 goals to end the tie at 3-2. Here are five(5) things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the clash. 1. UNITED PLAYERS ARE NOT ON STRIKE Watching the attitude of the players today, especially in the 2nd half, it was clear that the players had followed the footsteps of the 'NLC' and suspended their rumoured strike, to put in a 2nd half performance showing passion and grit. 2. PAUL 'IKENNA' POGBA IS A PROFESSIONAL Despite being the most criticised at United at the moment, and the only one who's rift with the boss is no longer a rumour, the Frenchman still stood tall today with a world class performance at the heart of United's midfield. To add 'goat meat to his stew', the French maestro laid on

Following the 3-1 'hammering' of the Red Devils by West Ham last weekend, José Mourinho's Manchester United failed yet again to recover their pride after a dour draw against Valencia in their match day 2 Champions League clash. Here are a four matters arising from this clash.👇 1. THERE IS TROUBLE AT OLD TRAFFORD It is now four games in all competitions without a win for our dear United. Infact, Manchester United have now failed to win any game at Old Trafford since the opening day of the season, what is happening? 'Kilodè'? To add pepper to the injury, this is United's worst start to a season in 29years. For how long shall we suffer this 'yabbing' from our 'bad bele' rivals? The Moyes days are truly fast approaching. What shall we do to be saved?  2. WHY FELLAINI? On the one day we were sure our opponents will keep the ball on the ground due to their Spanish traditional style, José Uchenna Mourinho played his f
