- Fri, 24 Jan 2020 20:03:00 +0000: ‘It’s a great feeling’. Tranmere’s Paul Mullin ready for Manchester United - Manchester United | The Guardian
League One side’s Cup hero is an avid Liverpool fan but will be motivated on Sunday by a desire to lift his own club’s fans
At around 11pm on Thursday Paul Mullin was standing on the bog of a pitch at Prenton Park reliving his match-winner for Tranmere against Watford while, outside, fans had started queuing for tickets to the prized draw of an FA Cup date with Manchester United. Hopefully with more luck than the avid Liverpool fan Mullin had trying to attend United’s visit to Anfield last weekend. Going toe-to-toe with Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s fragile team on Sunday offers ample compensation.
“That and Barcelona last season are the only games in two years I haven’t been able to get a ticket for,” lamented the 25-year-old, who was in the same Liverpool youth team as Raheem Sterling before their careers took very different paths.Continue reading...
- Fri, 24 Jan 2020 19:26:00 +0000: Manchester United ponder move for former Leicester striker Islam Slimani - Manchester United | The Guardian
• Forward likely to be third choice behind Martial and Greenwood
• Solskjær sticking to United plan after ‘positive’ talks with club
Manchester United are weighing up a loan move for the Leicester City striker Islam Slimani. The 31-year-old has been offered to United as Ole Gunnar Solskjær looks to add cover for Marcus Rashford, who has a long-term back injury. Slimani has been on loan at Monaco this season where he has scored seven goals in 14 appearances. Yet the temporary move to the Ligue 1 club is a third since signing for the Foxes in a £29m deal in summer 2016.
The Algerian has also had half-season loans at Newcastle United, where he failed to score a league goal, and Fenerbahce, where he managed one. If United were to move for Slimani, Leicester might demand a fee of up to £5m for a player who would in effect be the third-choice striker behind AnthonyContinue reading...

- Fri, 24 Jan 2020 00:26:01 +0000: Tranmere manager Micky Mellon wary of ‘formidable’ Manchester United - Manchester United | The Guardian
• Manager dismisses idea United will be vulnerable in FA Cup tie
• Mellon: ‘We will be up against a formidable outfit’
Micky Mellon said Tranmere would embrace their lucrative fourth-round FA Cup tie against Manchester United but denied Sunday represented an ideal opportunity to increase Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s problems.
Rovers, languishing 21st in League One, secured a home tie with Old Trafford’s fallen giants by overcoming Watford in extra time at Prenton Park. Mellon was manager of Shrewsbury Town when Louis van Gaal’s team won a fifth-round encounter en route to claiming the FA Cup in 2016 and insisted first-hand experience taught him not to treat United lightly.Continue reading...

Fifth place feels about right for United but problems lie in the difficulty of separating sporting and commercial ventures
The protest songs began around the hour mark, shortly after Burnley had scored their second goal: swelling and swirling around the tired, peeling old ground like hymns to a hazily-remembered past. One was about wanting their United back. Another proposed chopping Ed Woodward up from head to toe: the same grisly verse that had greeted the Glazer family when they first rolled into Old Trafford in the summer of 2005. Another beseeched fans to stand up if they hated the Glazers. Thousands of fans got to their feet. To be fair, they might simply have been heading for the exits.
For his part, Ole Gunnar Solskjær is very much a ground-half-full rather than a ground-half-empty kind of guy. After being pasted by Manchester City in the Carabao Cup semi-final, he took heart from the fact City had put out their strongest team. After being outclassed by Liverpool, he paid tribute to the fact they had been “in the game until the last kick”. And again, despite going down 2-0 to Burnley at Old Trafford amid an unprecedented fan exodus and the worst start to a league season for 30 years, the Manchester United manager was keen to look on the bright side.Continue reading...
