Tue, 12 Feb 2019 04:12:00 GMT

Craig Burley calls Manchester United's 2-0 loss to PSG a lesson in football as the FC crew react to United's first loss under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The FC crew assess Paul Pogba's performance before his red card against PSG and why he didn't play to the level he has demonstrated in recent weeks. MANCHESTER -- There is no hiding place in the Champions League, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer probably wanted one as he and his Manchester United team were outclassed and outsmarted by Thomas Tuchel and Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of this round-of-16 tie at Old Trafford. As if being beaten 2-0 by a rampant PSG was not bad enough, Solskjaer also had to watch two of his in-form forwards -- Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial -- limp off with injuries, while the red card Paul Pogba received in the...

Man United's summer search for a director of football will be far from easy

Tue, 12 Feb 2019 01:01:00 GMT

It's not just a new first-team manager that Manchester United will be making a decision on this summer. If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keeps winning games and manager of the month awards as he did for January, United won't have far to look. Yet the search for their first sporting director, someone independent of any manager, is different and will be far from straightforward. For a start, United's eventual sporting director won't be a buffer between Ed Woodward, United's executive vice chairman, and the...

Mon, 11 Feb 2019 08:59:00 GMT

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was ready for the question. It comes most weeks, in some shape or form, but this time, with Paris Saint-Germain's visit to Old Trafford starting a run of three huge games for the Manchester United caretaker manager, it seemed pertinent.

Manchester United eased past a woeful Fulham side to move up to 4th in the Premier League. ESPN FC's Paul Mariner recaps Man United's dominant display against Fulham, in particularly that of the Frenchmen Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba. LONDON -- For about 15 minutes, it looked like it would be a difficult afternoon for Manchester United.

Alexis Sanchez is overpaid and underperforming at Manchester United

Tue, 5 Feb 2019 11:24:00 GMT

Mark Ogden and the FC crew examine the top-four in the Premier League, which is heating up as Man United improve and Chelsea struggle. Craig Burley and Alejandro Moreno examine the re-emergence of Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and Manchester United at large since Jose Mourinho left. When a BBC Radio Leicester reporter commented about Alexis Sanchez to his co-commentator during Sunday's game against Manchester United, it wasn't about the Chilean international's ability as a player, but the size of his wages. That is the main talking point when it comes to the 30-year-old, particularly as Sanchez has not played a full game since United faced Leicester on the opening day of the season. He is becoming better known for his vast salary, which makes him one of the highest-paid players...
