It was a dramatic and breathless night for Manchester United fans; night for those of us living in Asia. The Olympic Stadium in London has witnessed some bad days for United, the best memory I have of United playing against West Ham in that stadium is the 2–0 win in Jose Mourinho’s first season at United, 2016–17.

United Dominance

I felt United dominated the game which is not something we can say often of our matches played there. Even in the 3–1 win last season, it was exaggerated as West Ham was on top in the game but we…


Inter responded very well to a couple of disappointing results with a 6–1 thrashing of an in-form Bologna. However, it was far from easy in the early parts of the match.

Highlights of Inter vs Bologna, Serie A 2021–22

Strong Start By Bologna

I felt Bologna started well and played with confidence. They moved the ball around well with authority without threatening our goal too much but were looking to penetrate our defence while we were misplacing some of our passes and when in the Bologna half, our passes went sideways more than forward. …


It’s nice to qualify for the Champions League; the prestige and honour of being the best or one of the best four teams in your country playing amongst others of equal standing. Then there are the memories of glorious Champions League nights of the past as well. For the club, it is financially beneficial if a club is involved in the Champions League as well. After a long period of absence, Inter has been qualifying for the Champions League for the past three seasons now but have disappointingly exited the tournament in the group stage in all three seasons.

Highlights…

It appears Cristiano Ronaldo or no Cristiano Ronaldo, the Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde Manchester United refuses to go away. We slumped to our first defeat in the season in our maiden Champions League match this season. You can’t win them all and at some point during the season, a team will lose, a fact that I can accept.

Great Start

We got off to a great start early in the game when Cristiano Ronaldo converted a great assist from Bruno Fernandes; it was our first real attempt on goal…


The last time Inter lost in Serie A before they secured their 19th Scudetto was against Sampdoria at the Luigi Ferraris. It was a highly frustrating match as Inter missed several chances including a penalty and conceded twice on the counter-attack. Inter made a return there in the early game on Sunday.

Dimarco Smashes One In The Top Corner

It wasn’t the perfect performance as Sampdoria hounded our midfielders which resulted in erratic and erroneous passing. We were fortunate to take the lead as we were awarded a soft free-kick. Federico Dimarco didn’t turn down the gift and thundered…


It was a dream come true, the return of a legend after 12 years, returning to the club that developed him into becoming one of the greatest of all time. The player in question, Cristiano Ronaldo and the club, Manchester United — no big surprise there. It has created a major buzz among United fans worldwide and every one of United persuasion was waiting for 11th September 3 pm (UK time) for his first official steps back onto the hallowed turf of Old Trafford in the red jersey of Manchester United.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have always been a tricky team to face for Manchester United and I believe most other big teams as well since their promotion into the Premier League under Nuno Espirito Santo. Nuno has left Wolves to become the new Tottenham Hotspur manager and Wolves have a new Portuguese manager in charge in the form of Bruno Large. I have not watched them play their first two matches but I am aware they have lost them both.

Wolves Domination

Against United yesterday, they dominated us. Adama Traore was…


I would describe myself as a balanced man, keeping my emotions in check unless of course, my team has won a trophy. But I couldn’t help myself when it was confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo was making a fairytale return to Manchester United. Like millions of United fans all over the globe, I was delighted and excited.

My Timeline Of Events

Days after Juventus’ 2–2 draw against Udinese, rumours were making the rounds that Cristiano has expressed his desire to leave the club. Then came news that his agent, Jorge Mendes was offering him to Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG)…


After the big win on the opening day of the season against Genoa, Hellas Verona was always going to be a tricky opposition. They have created an impression of being a tough team to play against since their promotion into Serie A under Ivan Juric. They are now managed by Eusebio Di Francesco who seems to have lost his way in his last two managerial stints at Sampdoria and Cagliari. I wasn’t sure what we would get from this Verona.

Poor First Half

Inter were far from fluid and sharp in the…


It took Manchester United all of 2 games to expose their frailties; a weak mentality and poor decision-making from the manager. I am not a fair-weather, modern Manchester United fan that cannot accept a setback. I have seen my share of setbacks as a United fan and there have been a lot of it since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. I am just calling it a spade, a spade.

Sancho

Pre-season I had pointed out that if we didn’t improve in these aspects, we will be left empty-handed again. There is no point chasing and signing world-class players if the…
