Robin van Persie's goal on his return to Old Trafford was met with applause from Sir Alex Ferguson - but what about Pogba's double?!

Blackbeard Roy Keane takes no prisoners

Pirate Roy Keane cartoon
Former Manchester United legend Roy Keane continued to plug his latest autobiography, The Second Half, this week and sustained his onslaught on the countless footballers and managers he has crossed during his time in the game.

The current Aston Villa and Ireland assistant claimed he cancelled a deal to sign Robbie Savage based on the player-turned-pundit's voicemail message, though he left no prisoners when it came to Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho.

Keane said he may never be able to forgive Sir Alex for the "lies" that were concocted about him as he was forced out of Old Trafford, while 'The Special One' was labelled a "disgrace" for his handshake snub, with the Irishman suggesting he would have been knocked out in a Sunday League match.

Ferguson's Ryder Cup pep talk

Sir Alex Ferguson has been brought in to hold a motivational pep talk to the European team ahead of the Ryder Cup.

And the former Manchester United manager’s words appear to have had an impact on Rory McIlroy and the rest of the team.

“I was just sitting there and looking up at him, and I didn't take my eyes off him,” said the 25-year-old.

I was sort of in this trance just listening to everything that he was saying and I'm sort of thinking, this is all the stuff that he's probably said to Manchester United teams over the years.

“He told us a couple stories just of past experiences in some big games and big matches, and some of the players that he managed, and it was a great evening. It was a really cool thing to be a part of.”

Sir Alex ready to teach Moyes a lesson

It's not gone quite to plan for the 'Chosen One' at Manchester United.

The Premier League champions have stuttered domestically during the 2013-14 campaign under Sir Alex Ferguson's personal recommendation, David Moyes, with United languishing down in seventh in the table.

But there may well be light at the end of the tunnel...

It was announced on Friday that Sir Alex will take up a "long-term teaching position" at the iconic Harvard University and Moyes could do worse than take a lesson from the managerial great.

Wenger celebrates 1000th Arsenal game

Arsene Wenger celebrates a huge milestone on Saturday as he takes charge of Arsenal for the 1000th time.

The Gunners travel to league leaders Chelsea in a crucial clash in the title race at Stamford Bridge.

Victory for Arsenal will leave them just a point behind the Blues although Wenger will be well aware he has never beaten Jose Mourinho.

Peep! It's Manchester United v Referees!

David Moyes and Ryan Giggs were less than impressed following Manchester United's 2-1 defeat at Sunderland in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg on Tuesday night.

The Scottish boss said "it looks as though we are having to play them [officials] as well as the opposition at the moment" after the Black Cats were awarded a free kick and a penalty which both lead to goals.

And Giggs thinks "it's getting laughable now, the decisions just aren't quite going for us." Not an easy time to be a Manchester United player!

Happy New Year from Goal!

It's the end of the calendar year and spirits are in the sky... footballers and managers across the world have much to reflect on - and look forward to - as we head into 2014.

It's been a great year for Pep Guardiola, who took over from Jupp Heynckes at the helm of treble winners Bayern Munich, while Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery fight it out for the Balon d'Or. Gareth Bale got his big-money move to Real Madrid, though it's time for Sir Alex Ferguson and David Beckham to leavethe party.

Jurgen Klopp is left to drown his sorrows after losing the Champions League final and dropping out of the Bundesliga title race, Jose Mourinho is back with Chelsea, Arsene Wenger is top of the pile and Luis Suarez is in and out of the dog house.

All that's left to say is Happy New Year to all our readers!

Nightmare Before Christmas! Moyes loses Van Persie to injury


The festive season is upon us, but Manchester United boss David Moyes is hardly likely to be full of cheer as Christmas approaches.

The Scot confirmed that Robin van Persie will be out of action for a month after picking up a thigh strain whilst taking a corner against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Dutchman had only recently returned to training after struggling with toe and groin problems, and could now miss games against Aston Villa, Stoke, West Ham, Hull, Norwich, Tottenham and Swansea.

The injury leaves Moyes with selection issues in attack, with Wayne Rooney proving to be the club's only other consistent goal threat so far this season.
