latest news at page 1:
    IT IS a date that will live in infamy. Saturday November 20, when a good man, a club legend was finally abandoned and betrayed by the players he trusted to wear the famous Manchester United shirt. 4Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was massively let down by his own players at Watford once againCredit: EPA 4The likes of Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo started the defeats to Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester City tooCredit: Reuters He would constantly tell them how fortunate they were to pull it on and represent the world’s most famous sports team. He knew. They clearly did not. The 4-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday was the biggest shambles in the club’s modern history. A day when the players were happy to see their manager hung out to dry. Yes, the boss had his shortcomings, which were clear to see when he was tested at the very highest level. Still he deserved better than this — much, much better than this.

    RUTHLESS Manchester City fans chanted 'Ole's on the dole' in a cruel twist on 'Ole's at the wheel' song following the Norwegian's sacking. The Etihad faithful basked in their rivals' misfortune during Sunday's Premier League win over Everton. 2Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked as Manchester United manager on Sunday morningCredit: EPA 2Manchester City fans enjoyed their rivals' struggles during the win over EvertonCredit: Getty It came just hours after Manchester United dismissed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this morning. United fans and Rio Ferdinand famously said Solskjaer was at the wheel when he took over at Old Trafford - and used the phrase in their chant about the former boss. But City supporters were keen to mock their struggling neighbours and unemployed Ole. The Norwegian boss was axed in the wake of the humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday evening. And the club delivered the news on their website with a short, 159-word statement. It said the Old Trafford hierarchy made the decision "with regret" and says "Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United." Most read in Premier LeagueLive BlogUNITED LATEST Man...
    MARC SKINNER believes Gareth Taylor will fight tooth and nail to get his side back to their best WSL form after the Manchester City boss was quizzed on his future.

    MANCHESTER UNITED and Manchester City discussed plans to merge and form a super club in the 1960s. City vice-chairman Frank Johnson proposed the idea in 1964 when his club were in the Second Division and the Red Devils had just finished runners-up in the top flight. 1United and City could have merged before they established themselves as global powerhousesCredit: PA The idea came about just two decades after City allowed United to use their Maine Road stadium while Old Trafford was being rebuilt after the Second World War. But the red side of Manchester gave the plan very little consideration as they opted against merging to form one team. Speaking to Manchester Evening News in 2013, football historian Gary James said: “The idea was killed by both clubs before it ever became public. “I spoke to Eric Alexander whose dad Albert was chairman at the time, and he said Frank Johnson, who came up with the idea, often came up with crazy ideas. “Another of his plans was to make the entire league regionalised into north and south. “But City...

    KEVIN DE BRUYNE doesn't believe that Fifa's plans for a World Cup every two years is a 'bad idea'.

    The Love Life scene about abortion and race sparks a conversation about Black fatherhood thats rarely seen on TV What does it mean to be vested? Tottenham Hotspur striker and England captain Harry Kane was heavily linked with what would've been a massive move to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City before the summer transfer window closed on Aug. 31. That transaction never occurred, per conflicting reports, either because Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy refused to sell the three-time Premier League Golden Boot winner, or because City never matched Levy's asking price for the 28-year-old.  © Press Association Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane Shortly after Kane "committed his future" to his current employer in August, he said he didn't believe rumors suggesting he wanted to leave Tottenham for City would damage his reputation.

But Richards hit out by saying Bruno Fernandes should have helped track back to stop the cross. The ex-City man fired back at Souness: "He's scared, he knows he hasn't got help from...
    ROY KEANE was involved in a furious row with a Manchester United fan outside Old Trafford after yesterday's game. The Manchester United legend was called "an absolute p****" by the supporter.

The former club captain took a couple of step forwards during the confrontation to nearly square up to his critic before walking off.

Keane, who was working as a pundit for Sky Sports, had a meltdown after the game, slamming his fellow pundit Micah Richards and vowing he would 'shake' Solskjaer over his selection of midfielder Fred. Manchester United fans were also livid, booing the team both at half-time and full-time. Most read in Premier LeagueUNITED...
    THERE COMES A POINT when that’s just it. The manager has done a good job. And believe me Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has.

Jose Mourinho’s reign was totally undervalued. A League Cup, Europa League and second placed finish but why does his temperament always bring things crashing down. It does everywhere, just look at Roma right now. So United brought in the cooler, calmer, smilier face of United. A club legend to reconnect with the club DNA.

After the game, ex-City right-back Richards said Van De Beek should be given more of a chance at the club. United legend Keane - already grouchy due to the result - snapped back, saying: "Are you saying he's the answer [to United's problems]?" Richards continued to plead his case but the Irishman shut him down again. Keane continued: "He played in the last season and he was very average. £40million is a drop in the ocean [transfer fee]. Jack Grealish was on the bench today he's £100m!" Graeme Souness could...

    What star? Shows that survived major cast changes and kept going When Social Security Runs Out: What the Program Will Look Like in 2035 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly had three matches to save his job following the humiliating 5-0 home loss to Liverpool. But it was never clear what those results needed to be. So did the former Man United legend do enough to retain his position? Club management decided to keep the 48-year-old manager at the helm after the debacle against Liverpool, despite "giving serious consideration to dismissing Solskjaer." After a change of formation to a three center back system, his Man United side went 1-1-1 during those next three matches. A league win at Tottenham and a Champions League draw at Atalanta were followed by a deflating 2-0 home loss to intra-city rival Manchester City which brought back the helpless feelings of the Liverpool defeat. Solskjaer said after the Liverpool match that he still felt like he was the right man for the job despite calling that 5-0 scoreline "rock bottom." And he was still convinced of it after the humbling setback to Manchester City, during which Man...
    MAFSs Jessica Studer and Austin Hurd Welcome First Baby — a Boy! At least 8 dead, scores more injured at concert during Astroworld Festival in Texas, officials say How much longer can Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hold on to his job as Manchester United manager? With performances as bad as the one against Manchester City on Saturday afternoon, is the Norwegian's departure only a matter of time? This isn’t just a blip or an unfortunate run of results. It’s a widespread problem that needs solving sooner rather than later.  There were to be no Cristiano Ronaldo heroics this time around, as United were humiliated at home by one of their fiercest rivals for the second time in two weeks. And in some ways, the 2-0 derby defeat to Manchester City was worse than the 5-0 loss to Liverpool. The scoreline was not as bad, but United was totally dominated in its own backyard.  This performance merely underlined that last weekend's win over Tottenham wasn’t a revival. It was an anomaly against a side who were in even worse form. But Solskajer is not fearing for his...

    GARY NEVILLE singled out 'emotional' Bruno Fernandes for Manchester United's torrid start against City. The Red Devils endured another nightmare against one of their biggest rivals at Old Trafford as Eric Bailly scored an early own goal before Bernardo Silva sealed a comfortable 2-0 win. 2Bruno Fernandes came under fire for his performance against Manchester CityCredit: AFP 2Gary Neville singled the playmaker out for his untimely pressingCredit: PA But it was the playmaker Fernandes who drew particular criticism from Neville on the Sky Sports commentary. Neville said: "Bruno Fernandes has lost the ball and chased after it, leaving his position. So emotional Bruno Fernandes. "He is too emotional. Emotion isn't going to win this game, trust me." The comments came during the first half as Fernandes chased down a number of City players who passed the ball around easily. That left a gap in his No10 role as the champions continued to stamp their authority on the derby victory with plenty of possession. It was that half-hearted and untimely pressing from Manchester United that led to widespread...

    ERIC BAILLY created an unfortunate piece of history at the start of the Manchester derby as he comically turned the ball into his own net to give Man City the lead. A cross from the left-hand side was inadvertently tucked away by the outstretched Bailly as the visitors took a seventh minute lead at Old Trafford. 1Bailly sliced a cross into his own net to give Man City the leadCredit: AFP It is the first own goal a United player has ever scored in the Manchester derby. Reacting to the goal, a depleted Gary Neville simply said: "Poor defending and poor goal." The shocking moment from Bailly comes just days after he put in a sensational display during Man Utd's 2-2 draw with Atalanta in the Champions League. But he was left all at sea early on as a back three of Bailly, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof were carved open with Man City's first meaningful attack.

    BERNARDO SILVA has warned Manchester United that City are capable of scoring "four or five" in any match they play.

The Portuguese said: “We know that when we are focused and do well, we are a team that has the capacity to score four or five goals per game. “Of course, that doesn’t happen in all the games. But we are going to try to score as many goals as we can in Old Trafford – even though we know we are playing a very good team.” City have won only two of the last seven meetings with the Red Devils – and both of those came in the Carabao Cup.
