    Ryan Giggs has admitted that he would like to have had more playing time at Manchester United this season but he denies any rift with manager David Moyes.

    David Beckham and Class of '92 Backed in Rumoured Manchester United Takeover … Thu, Mar 27, 2014

    Manchester United Supporters Trust chief executive Duncan Drasdo has backed the rumoured attempts of a consortium including David Beckham and the Class of '92 to stage an unlikely takeover at Old Trafford. Reports on Thursday suggested that Beckham, Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville are part of a group looking to stage a buy-out of the Glazer family at the troubled Premier League champions. The American owners have plunged United into substantial debt, overseen a rise in ticket prices while failing to consistently invest in the playing squad during nine years at the club which sees them cast as deeply unpopular figures at the Theatre of Dreams. While suggestions that a consortium led by the six iconic United figures, four of which are still employed by the club, appear farfetched, the news has been welcomed by MUST which has long campaigned against the Glazers' regime.

    Bastian Schweinsteiger Wants to Replicate Ryan Giggs' Manchester United … Wed, Mar 26, 2014

    Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has heaped praise on Manchester United and Roma legends Ryan Giggs and Francesco Totti and hopes he can recreate their longevity in the game. At 40 and 37 respectively, Giggs and Totti represent the increasingly rare occurance of a player remaining at the same club from youth level to the role of elder statesmen which both currently hold. Former Welsh international Giggs has enjoyed the greater share of silverware in a career that has spanned 23 years including 13 Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two Champions League successes. At 29, Germany international Schweinsteiger is well on his way to enjoying similar success having won 15 major honours with the Bavarian giants and fully intends to follow the example set by two of European football's most revered veterans.

    Paul Scholes Slams Arsenal for Lack of Leadership and Character Wed, Mar 26, 2014

    Paul Scholes has launched a scathing attack on Arsenal following their 6-0 demolition at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The former Manchester United man believes that the Gunners do not have a leader in their squad of the calibre of Patrick Vieira and Martin Keown who were the architects behind Arsenal's glory period in the late 90s and the early 00s. Scholes, who was part of Ferguson's class of 1992 which also produced the likes of David Beckham and Ryan Giggs, retired at the end of last season along with Sir Alex Ferguson.  More »

    David Moyes on the Precipice at Manchester United as Players and Supporters … Mon, Mar 17, 2014

    David Moyes' future as Manchester United manager is growing increasingly bleak after evidence of supporters turning on the Scot following the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool was accentuated by reports of a major falling-out with senior players at Old Trafford. United won the title by 11 points ahead of Manchester City last term in Sir Alex Ferguson's final season but currently sit seventh and face their lowest top flight finish for 24 years and not qualifying for European competition for the first time since 1981, following a ninth Premier League defeat of the campaign. Moyes was handed a six-year contract upon being appointed as successor to Ferguson but after another abject display in defeat to Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool, he faces strong questions over his capability to lead the club beyond the end of the current term. Problems at United had initially been confined to performances on the pitch, particularly at home where they have won just six times in 14 league games, but club fanzine Red Issue has revealed that a training ground bust-up with player-coach Ryan Giggs before the game against Liverpool is jeopardising Moyes' future.

    Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs says the record signing of Juan Mata is a show of intent ahead of the summer transfer window, with a host of new additions expected to arrive. Mata joined United from Chelsea for a record £37.1m fee in January, just the second significant signing during manager David Moyes' reign at the club following the summer addition of Marouane Fellaini. Moyes has promised the arrival of a string of new players in the summer and Giggs says the signing of Mata is a statement of intent ahead of a summer of upheaval at Old Trafford. The first task faced by Moyes will be to replace outgoing United captain Nemanja Vidic, who will leave the club at the end of the season upon the expiry of his contract. More »

    United Manager Moyes Reacts to Constant Ferguson Presence Wed, Jan 8, 2014

    Manchester United manager David Moyes claims Sir Alex Ferguson's attendance at games is not an unwanted distraction after Sunderland inflicted upon his side their third successive defeat. Ferguson has been spotted at a number of United games this season during the early months of Moyes' tenure at Old Trafford, with his presence being regarded as pilling extra pressure on the new manager. But Moyes, after Ryan Giggs' own goal and Fabio Borini's penalty helped Sunderland take a 2-1 lead in the League Cup semi-final first leg, says Ferguson attending matches is not an unwanted interference and finds the ex-United boss welcome company. Bryan Robson is at the training ground regularly and I find the three of them terrific. More »

    David Moyes criticised the officials claiming that Manchester United are playing the opposition as well as the referees in the aftermath of their first leg defeat in the semi-final of the Capital One Cup against Sunderland on Tuesday. The Red Devils conceded a goal on the cusp of half-time, after poor defending from a set piece saw Ryan Giggs tap the ball past his own goalkeeper. Nemanja Vidic equalised for the visitors after 52 minutes on the clock but the euphoria was short-lived. Fabio Borini put the Black Cats ahead from the spot 12 minutes later when Tom Cleverley was adjudged to have fouled Adam Johnson inside the box. More »
