Despite win at Liverpool, Manchester United needs help fast

Manchester United has struggled in recent months, especially on the offensive end. If the Red Devils want to have a chance at a top four finish in the Premiere League, they need a big offensive signing this January transfer window.

Manchester United fourth-place finish a success

Manchester United is headed back to European competition in the UEFA Champions League. Well, it's not 100 percent certain at this time, but it's almost as good as gold. United sit in fourth place in the Premiere League, leading fifth-place Liverpool by six points with two games left two go, meaning the two teams could end up tied on points at the end of the season. But United have a plus-25 goal differential to Liverpool's plus-11, which would give the Red Devils the tiebreaker. So it would really take a crazy final two weeks for United to cough up the fourth and final spot for England in the Champions League. And that is quite a success for a team that looked so bad and so poorly managed by David Moyes just a year ago.

Manchester United won’t win Premiere League, but they have their Mojo back

Manchester United, once mocked for a 4-0 loss to Milton Keynes in the League Cup in August, is sitting on 65 points with six matches left in the season. The Red Devils are eight points clear of Southampton for their automatic spot in the UEFA Champions League next season and just one point behind second place Arsenal, who they play in the second-to-last match of the season. Of course, they won't make up the eight point deficit to Chelsea, who have an extra match to play, but I think this is a good point to say that that Manchester United is back.

Stretch run will make or break Manchester United’s season

United currently sit in fourth in the Premiere League, which would be good enough to advance to the play-in round of the UEFA Champions League, and just one point behind third place Arsenal. That being said, the stretch run of games for Manchester United from here to the end of the season will define their season and whether Louis van Gaal's experiment as manager of the squad.

United’s 4-0 drubbing could be sign of turnaround in Manchester

The past year-plus for Manchester United has been disappointing. And that's putting it lightly. The Red Devils fell from the Premiere League title holders for the 2012-2013 season to a very disappointing seventh place finish last season behind the failed manager change with David Moyes. This season had been more of the same with no wins against relatively easier competition and an embarrassing 4-0 loss to M.K. Dons. But Sunday was a different story and a different verse and hope for a great turnaround in Manchester.

Manchester United in trouble, but time to make it up

To say that Manchester United has had a rough first month or so in the Premiere League and other competitions is really an understatement. In three league matches, United has yet to score a win with two draws and a loss--the latest result being a 0-0 draw versus Burnley. Add in the fact that they got destroyed 4-0 by League 1 side M.K. Dons in the League Cup and things aren't going very well for first-year manager Louis van Gaal.

Previewing the World Cup field

This World Cup is increasingly interesting because there's no clear cut, head above anyone else favorite. There are roughly four or five teams that have a very realistic chance of winning it all with a few others that could play spoilers. The intrigue will only get bigger and better as the competition rolls on. With so much to look forward to over the next month, here's a preview of what to expect from each of the 32 countries competing in the World Cup and how the knockout rounds might shape up.

Manchester United’s seventh place finish a disappointment, but not disaster

United finished this season in seventh place in the Premiere League and out of the league's UEFA Champions or Europa League spots and Sir Alex Ferguson's replacement, David Moyes, was sacked with a couple of weeks left in the season. But while this is was certainly a disappointment for Manchester United and its supporters, it's not quite the disaster some folks have made it out to be.
