NBCSN’s Manchester United Treble documentary is a masterpiece: Review

It’s only fitting that one of the main storytellers in the Manchester United documentary that will premiere on Sunday on NBCSN about the treble-winning season is the man who called the game that night, commentator Clive Tyldesley. His words and voice are so intertwined with that memorable day in 1999 when the Red Devils — against all odds — came from 0-1 down to win the UEFA Champions League 2-1 in injury time, thereby making history as the only English club ever to have won the treble of the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup trophies in one season. The year ... Read more

Steadying a sinking ship: How Solari and Solskjær saved two of Europe’s biggest clubs

Julen Lopetegui exited the Nou Camp in late October with both a sense of shock and a sinking realization that his dream of being Real Madrid’s manager was about to come to a screeching halt. Real Madrid had just been thrashed 5-1 at the hands of their oldest and fiercest rivals, FC Barcelona, which was their worst loss in the Clásico since a 5-0 setback in November 2010. This defeat came against a shorthanded Barcelona, without Lionel Messi. It didn’t matter. Lopetegui’s Real were torn to shreds in their fifth loss in their last seven in all competitions. Jose Mourinho ... Read more

Martial and Rashford resurgence better than new signings

Good times have returned to Manchester United. Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has transformed Manchester United’s fortunes and restored the club’s DNA. Solskjaer has been showered with praise. Some have compared him to former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, and most have become sure that he should become the permanent manager.

Those are 23-year-old Anthony Martial and 21-year-old Marcus Rashford, who are both the key to Manchester United’s future. They’re two players capable of being ... Read more

Liverpool and Manchester United rivalry continues to ebb and flow

As the two most successful clubs in English football it is inevitable that Liverpool and Manchester United regularly find themselves at loggerheads with each other. The two cities have rarely been on the same page, both in sport and culturally, and it is a rivalry that shows no signs of abating any time soon. The emergence of Bill Shankly’s side back in the 1960s challenged the usual order of things and although United hit back with their European Cup triumph in 1968, it was Liverpool who went on to dominate. They won 12 league titles between 1973 and 1990, while ... Read more
