Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown has revealed the key traits in the team while Sir Alex Ferguson was the manager. Speaking earlier this year on the various successful Manchester United teams under Ferguson in an interview monitored by MEN (Manchester Evening News), Wes Brown stated that the unity and togetherness were the traits synonymous with each Red Devils team under Fergguson.
Wes Brown came through the Manchester United Academy and he was named the best youth player at the club two times in a row before Sir Alex Ferguson decided to hand him a spot in the first team. The Englishman made his debut for Manchester United in 1998 and he went on to play his part in the historic treble won. In his first season with the senior team, Manchester United won three major titles in a single season. The Red Devils ended the 1998/99 season with the FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League titles and Wes Brown played 21 times in all competitions. The defender could have played more games for the Red Devils during the treble season if not for injuries. Continue reading UNITED: WES BROWN REVEALS KEY TRAITSContinue reading

Manchester United played their second game of the new Premier League season against Southampton on Sunday afternoon at the St Mary’s and it ended up not being the sort of result they were looking forward to getting at the end of the match. The game ended in a 1-1 draw in what was a lackluster performance from the Red Devils. The team was a totally different side from the one that hammered Leeds United 5-1 on the opening fixture of the new campaign and even though fans were buzzing after that first game at Old Trafford, they started to raise a lot of questions after the result of their second match.
The miserable afternoon started for the Red Devils after conceding a goal before half-time through a Che Adams deflected shot that beat goalkeeper David de Gea at the far post. The goal caused a lot of mixed reactions because it was scored after a build-up that contained what looked like a foul on Bruno Fernandes right outside the 18-yard box was started. While United players and their fans continued to make a call for a free kick in favor of United, the game was still on and it led to United conceding the first goal of the afternoon.

Manchester United fans have been left drooling at the prospect of watching their club’s attackers play some anticipated exciting and joyous football next season. The Red Devils have shown that they mean business this summer after announcing on Thursday that they have reached an agreement in principle for the purchase of England international forward Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund and it has left not only their fans but football lovers across the globe to relay their thoughts and reactions on the move.
21-year-old Sancho had always been the main target for United and after confirming that he will be playing at Old Trafford next season, rival defenders in the English Premier League might just have one more reason to be concerned. The addition of Sancho to the already-rich United attack is particularly flattering and has sent goosebumps down the spines of the Old Trafford faithful.

As a Manchester United fan, you’re probably wondering when next your club will be winning the English Premier League title and when they will start making a huge statement of competing strongly for the UEFA Champions League title. But with how the club have shown signs of massive improvement over the last years, you would have some belief that the journey to that title-winning destination is on the right track. At least, that’s what the club’s former defender, Wes Brown, thinks.
The former Red Devil has revealed that it is only a matter of time before his former employers loft the league crown because they have continued to show promising signs and increased progress that they are building a team worthy of competing for major titles gradually. Brown believes that although there has been a big fall from glory at Old Trafford, the club are well-placed to engineer a remarkable turnaround and that next season could be their season. Continue reading BROWN: STATISTICS SHOW UNITED’S GROWING IMPROVEMENTContinue reading
Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown has been giving his opinion about his former club recently and gave his assessment of the club’s current stars. The Red Devils have suffered a Premier League title drought in eight years and have continued to be in the hunt for another league crown since the last time when they won it in Sir Alex Ferguson’s last campaign in charge back in 2013.
Since then, the Red Devils have made a couple of signings, both players and managers, in a bid to get their hands on the trophy one more time, but they have not been able to do so. Many people who have given an insight into United’s fall from the top have stated that their struggle to reclaim their place in the power rankings in the Premier League is because they have not been lucky with prolific goalscorer that can promise at least 20 goals every season.

Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown was full of praise for Paul Pogba for his impact during the Europa League round of 16 tie with Italian Serie A giants AC Milan last week Thursday. Wes Brown lauded the impact of the Frenchman when he came on at half-time of the second leg clash between Milan and Manchester United at the San Siro on Thursday night. It took him just four minutes to make an impact for his team during the game. He scored the only goal of the game as Manchester United progressed from their last 16 tie with the Rossoneri and into the quarterfinals via a 2-1 aggregate victory over their Italian opponents. Until his introduction into the game, Manchester United were facing elimination by virtue of the away goals rule. Manchester United needed to score at least a goal in the second leg clash between the two European giants at the San Siro after the first leg at the Theatre of Dreams ended in a 1-1 draw and it was Paul Pogba who produced the goods for the Red Devils on his return from injury after two months on the sidelines.
Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown has insisted that his former club are beginning to get good competition for places in the team, including the defensive department and that it is good for the team as a whole. The former defender said it is a great idea for two or more players to be fighting for every spot in the team as it helps the squad depth and improves players’ abilities as well.
The Old Trafford club have had to be criticized a lot this season about their defensive department following a couple of mistakes by their defenders that have cost them not just goals but also precious points in the Premier League. But Brown has insisted that with the fighting spirit Eric Bailly has, he is a strong rival of captain Harry Maguire for a starting spot at the heart of the United defense.

Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown has declared that he believes his former side are part of the teams that are going for the Premier League title this season. The former defender who won five trophies during his playing career as a Red Devil says there is currently no reason for the Old Trafford side to not compete credibly for the title this season.
Manchester United legend Wes Brown had high hopes for the club this season and it is safe to say that the team has not met those lofty expectations. In one of his interviews at the start of this season, Wes Brown told the Manchester United website at the Soccer Aid for Unicefmatch at Old Trafford that he’s optimistic for the new season. The optimism from Wes Brown and other Manchester United fans has been derailed by the average performances churned out by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players this season especially in the Premier League.
Manchester United were without a win at home for their first four games until they got it right against struggling West Brom at the weekend. The Red Devils struggled to beat the Baggies as they needed a controversial 1-0 win to dismiss the visitors. Portuguese international Bruno Fernandes was responsible for the goal in the second half of the week nine encounter. Continue reading WESBROWN UNITED EXPECTATIONS NOT METContinue reading
