Whether You're a Football Club or a Business, Paying the Living Wage Is Just Good Sense

Given the positive reaction both Chelsea and West Ham fans have had to their clubs' support of the living wage, it's hard to understand why this is such a battle. A survey for the GMB union found that 84% of football supporters want Premier League and Football League clubs to pay their staff a wage they can live on. It's the right thing to do, and the goodwill that paying the living wage would create would be huge. Making sure people are paid a decent wage is not just the right thing to do, it's good for working families, it's good for business and it's good for the economy.

Five Reasons Why Ryan Giggs Should Become Manager of Manchester United

This may sound a little trivial, but Ryan Giggs looks very much like someone who could succeed at United. From his press conference before the game at Norwich and until he walked off the pitch, the 40-year-old oozed confidence and passion for the role.

Easter Sacrifice - Moyes Died For Fergie's Sins

And just like that, it is finished. It's been a nightmarish and arduous 10 months in the Old Trafford hot seat for David Moyes, and, having served up a feast of failure during his time in Manchester, it is perhaps fitting that the all-powerful United deities chose Easter weekend to publicly sacrifice their 'chosen one'.

Do or Die for Moyes' Boys?

After watching his side systematically dismantled at home to Liverpool at the weekend, David Moyes must be wondering if his tenure at Old Trafford could be any worse. Unfortunately for him, come Thursday morning, it definitely could - and it likely will. As United lick their wounds following that 3-0 humiliation inflicted by their fierce rivals, their Champions League status also hangs finely in the balance.

Arrivederci, Nemanja

He came, he saw, he conquered: Nemanja Vidic is about to face the exit sign at Old Trafford and here's my take on the great Serbian rock, who could've been even greater, as he's currently preparing for a new chapter dressed in black and blue in Milano.

Why Manchester United's Poor Form Is Good for the Premier League

If you're not a United supporter, then it really is a blessing in disguise. United's previous dominance in the league has pretty much all but disappeared and the 'epic' draw against Fulham has seen them possibly losing out on a Champions League place and that all important top four finish.

Ashley Young Playing for His Manchester United Career

When Ashley Young starts a game or is introduced as a substitute the Twitterati has an ever growing tendency to complain. Is this attitude inflicted due to his inconsistency or has the England international become a scapegoat? Under David Moyes, Ashley Young is having one of his better seasons at Manchester United.

Keane v Vieira

Anyone catch that Keane v Vieira documentary the other week? If you've watched any football on ITV recently, you'll have seen national village idiot Adrian Chiles repeatedly flatulating over it like some sort of gammon whoopee cushion, each time turning to simper at sweet-tempered Roy with the distinct air of a man doing everything in his meagre powers to avoid having his intestines used to hoist the boom.

Sir Alex Into Fergie Time

Rio Ferdinand and the Concept of 'Age'

Ferdinand's fragile body is susceptible to injury and for that reason he almost certainly won't last as long as Giggs, Scholes or any of the age-defying centre backs of the last 10 years. But when fit, he remains a valuable asset for United.

Who Should Replace Sir Alex?

When the most successful British manager of all time eventually retires (or passes on, having endured yet another Nani dribble down a blind alley), who should he hand over his hairdryer and rock-hard lump of wrigleys to? I run down some candidates.

"Just enjoy watching them, most won't be here in a few years" - words said by Ian, a long-time United Reserves/Academy watcher, to me. The FA Youth Cup winning 2010/11 team got people excited not just because they won the competition but because they were, by some distance, the best young side in the country.

Why Hodgson Should Have Fought Harder for Carrick

For nearly a year I've been harangued on Twitter by an account dedicated to attempting to point out and prove that Carrick is sh*t. It's been an amusing journey and experience, for I think, and always have thought, that Carrick is a very reliable and good footballer. Needless to say, that a year after its creation the account has a very low follower count.

It's all too easy for a football fan to be dismissive of their club's Reserves team - after all, the perception that fans have today about young players is something along the lines of 'if they're 18/19 and not in the first team then they can't be any good'.

Michael Owen Should Get a New Deal - Now Shoot Me

No transfer has ever had more of the Glazers about it than Owen to United (unless you know of and believe the intricacies and reasoning behind the Bebe deal). It seems absurd that I'm even contemplating this but signing Owen on for another year may well be important for the club's future strikers and seems likely to happen.

The Need to Unleash and Appreciate Rooney

The assumption with Rooney is that he has to do something special to remind people of his talent - the overhead kick against City or a hat-trick at Bolton for example. Has he truly fulfilled the potential he once showed? Potentially, but not necessarily in the way people expected.

Are Man United Finally Set for a Midfield Star Signing?

United, for all their criticism, have a rather complete and strong squad. So much so, that if every team in the league had to field a fully changed, 'second XI', United's would almost certainly represent the strongest (I'm sure City fans would debate that).
