    “It’s a race. You can see teams building. We’re always looking at the squad and player logistics,”

    “It is definitely about quality — and it is going to cost money to get in players who are better than the ones we already have.

    “We still have a way to go to get to that level of the teams at the top of the Premier League. They are too far ahead of us.

    “We are still growing, getting better of course, but we are not the finished article. Nowhere near.”

    The new Red News Podcast 87 - Our third Semi Final of the season is here. MUFC + a load of feck.

    Abba mini bar rows. And MUFC after the win over Copenhagen and previewing the Semi Final against Seville. And apologies for Nik lowering the tone.

    The independent, satirical Manchester United supporters' fanzine - for adults only, contains expletives, talks MUFC as the RN sellers and readers talk Europa League progress as we approach our third Semi Final of an extended season. #mufc

    Red News - who we are and why we do it ...


    Founded in 1987, as relevant as ever now, RedNews is a Manchester United fanzine - available as a printed magazine on sale at Old Trafford on matchdays, a new digital download version for your tablet/pc/phone and via the post directly to your door (order at http://www.rednews.co.uk/subscription.php) together with its online presence here offering the most extensive United news and views service on the net, together with its forums where Reds can debate, share info, gossip and banter away.

    The fanzine and site is run by Reds for Reds, 100% independent and unofficial (and for adults only), but offering Manchester United fans wherever they may be a voice. The fanzine offers an irreverent look from the perspective of match going United supporters, there to have a laugh, poke fun at our rivals, yet offer constructive criticism if necessary about the club - but sharing a love for all things MUFC. There is opinion on current events, and trips down memory lane with great stories and pictures. Retro looks and current thought on the game today, and yesterday.

    We don't have or want the backing of large organisations - we are proud that a fanzine remains different and unique in the world because it offers an honest plain talking view about how football fans really see the game to fellow fans seeking honesty and a shared love for all things mufc. Sharing a culture, blessed as MUFC fans. We like being different.

    It's a labour of love - we don't have fancy premises or a HQ, just a group of United fans giving their time and (at times!) endless effort to provide what we feel is a unique look and forum in the wider sense for United fans to use. We are a small operation, but have a loud voice. We work from our homes, in our work, because it is a labour of love. Welcome! We are proud and honoured to offer Reds a choice, and that voice, and we thank all of you who support us.

    RedNews was founded in 1987, and its web presence arrived in August 2000. Both are separate entities - so what you find in the printed fanzine you won't find on the website and vice versa - but share the same ideal, that United fans, the best in the world, deserve a fanzine and website that allows them to express their opinions where previously they went unheard. RedNews was the first Manchester United fanzine and is proud that it continues to flourish into its fourth decade when so many other fanzines from back then are sadly no longer with us - but we can only survive with your support, which is why if you enjoy using our facilities here that we hope you have a look at the ways that you can help support us. And get something lovely in return. Every order is vital and crucial.

    The printed fanzine (now also available as a digital version) has exclusive interviews with past and present United players (over 60 interviewed already), good features and analysis, extensive gossip, laughs at our rivals with mickey taking graphics and reports from match going Reds on their travels to away games - we'd like you to give the fanzine a try. This website provides an overview of all the United news of the day, and then allows its readers to discuss those subjects on our forums, one of which is free, the others which are available to our online subscribers. (see http://www.rednews.co.uk/vip.php)

    RedNews since its creation back in 1987 has seen so much happen at United that we look forward to many more seasons enjoying and talking and writing about the great life that being a Manchester United fan is all about. There is nothing on earth like being a Red. MUFC is not a hobby to us all, it is a way of life. And long may that continue.

    We hope you continue to enjoy the fanzine, or if you are new here and want to see what we're all about - you can find also find a free pdf of highlights from the printed fanzine to download and see what RedNews is all about.

    Thank you.

    MUFC coach Neil Wood is proud of Teden Mengi making his first team debit

    “Everyone in the club is proud of him as we are with any player who makes his debut,”

    "Teden has been at the club a long time, he has been here since a very young boy and there have been a lot of coaches to have played a part in his journey along the way.

    “You have to give Teden massive credit as well. The way he came up to us to train with the U23s this time last year, the season he had, the way he is every day, the way he works.

    “He got the chance to go in and train with the first team during the lockdown because of those performances, because of that attitude, because he trains the right way every day. That was the opportunity which he was given.

    “I spoke to the first-team staff and he has done really well training with the first-team. So it is great that the manager trusts him to put him in a Europa League game, that is what the manager has been doing this year. If they are good enough and show they can cope up there then he will give them a chance.”

    Ole talks some more about Sevilla

    “They're a very good team. Obviously, you talk about it, the record they've got in this tournament - five wins. They obviously beat Man United in the Champions League so we know all about their team really. Individual quality, the style of play, aggressive... it's a good team.”

    “Of course, the preparation is important, that you get it spot on. Team selection. Then, when you get to the game, goals always decide how these games will pan out. But I think both teams are teams that like to have the ball, like to dominate and let's see who's got the best qualities. It might be a set play, an individual piece of brilliance because there's so many good players on show.”

    "They're always good teams who get so far. So yes, definitely. I don't think any of the teams will run away with it, with big wins. They've got a very good defensive record. As you said, 19 now unbeaten and they have some individual players who can harm you.”

    “You don't know how many of these you're going to play or take part in. We've lost two semis already this season which is painful and, I've said it before, I hope that pain will give us that little bit extra motivation or inspiration, focus. I know everyone's focused anyway but that little extra edge that might drive you to [think] 'I don't want to feel that pain again'.”

    “We're fine. Obviously the ones left at home are still there. But as you said, we've had many days to prepare so that means it's also a good recovery and we should be physically fresh. Mentally, of course, you're physically ready for a game in the semi-final. Everyone wants to play that.”

    Red News believes that United fans, the best in the world, deserve a fanzine and website that allows them to express their opinions where previously they went unheard.

Along with exclusive interviews with past and present United players (over 60 interviewed already), good features and analysis, extensive gossip, laughs at our rivals with mickey taking graphics and reports from match going Reds on their travels to away games.

    This website provides an overview of all the United news of the day, and forums for discussions

    Mike Phelan says in Germany United have been working on the squad spirit, tactics to use v Sevilla and giving youngsters a chance to shine

    “We want them to have fun and enjoy what they’re doing, but it’s also about getting a feel of the tactical element because we know who our opponents are. So we can work on that in the time we have between the games and each day is relevant towards the semi-final now.”

    “It has a little feel of pre-season in a way, when you come in and you’re experimenting a little bit, but we’re at the back end of the season, albeit that seems strange in itself when we talk about it nearly being September. But we’re here to do what we hopefully want to do and that’s to qualify for the final and take it one step further than the other semis we’ve got to this season.”

    "It’s invaluable [to have youngsters training with first team]. They can’t replicate this back at Carrington. They’re with this group, a successful group, and it’s there for them to impress us, not only on the training ground but in and around the hotel, and show us their qualities and personalities. We’re really pleased to have them with us and all of them have joined in really well with the group.”

    Mike Phelan sees good progress in the MUFC squad and now wants something to show for the hard work

    "We’ve worked a lot – Ole, the coaches and the staff – in the background and we’ve all started to gel well together. Everybody now understands what we expect and how we go about our work and our play, and I think you can tell they communicate well with each other, there are no superstars, and they’re a good group.”

    “It’s very important to show, at the end of the season, all the hard work you’ve put into it and that is usually done with silverware. We feel as though as we’ve come a long way in a short space of time and I think everything is developing in the direction we want it to and that’s really good from our point of view. We felt as though we had a lot of work to do and the time we had to do it in, and we feel as though we’re in front of that a little bit. We know where we want to be. We’re not there yet, but I think getting to three semi-finals and finishing third [in the Premier League] was terrific, but it’s not the be all and end all. You need to show something, which is a trophy at the end of a season if you possibly can. But I think we’re on the right track.”

    "You’ve got to be looking every season at 60-plus games and if you’ve done that, you’ve had reasonable success because you’ve been in every competition, but obviously at the end of it you don’t want to come up short. I think if we’d have said at the start of the season we’d play 60-odd games we’d have been more than happy with that. We’re really in a good place and there’s still a lot to play for.”

    Mike Phelan thinks MUFC v Sevilla sounds like a proper Euro tie

    “Yes, it sounds European! [Smiles] We know how Sevilla operate, they’re a very good outfit with very good technical players and great possession of the ball which they showed against Wolves in the last game. They’re a team to be reckoned with, both in their own domestic league and in Europe but particularly in this cup, they have some history in it. I think it’s two football teams going head-to-head in what could be a really good semi-final.”

    Ole isn't worrying about next season just yet (RN - Hopefully Woodward is and is sorting out the transfers needed!)

    “Absolutely no concerns about next season at the moment. We have a good possibility to finish the season. Of course, this is the only way we could have finished the season and for the supporters as well to have a game on TV every day has been very important. And you look forward to the Champions League games at night and you look forward to the Europa League games and I think that has been helpful. We have to use it as preparation for this tournament but also it is almost a pre-season for next season because it is not very long until we have to get going again. It is what it is. We have to be clever when we rest people, how we train, when we play - it is just the time we are in. We can’t complain because this is the world we are in now.”

    “There is no point me worrying about it. The authorities will give us as much rest as they can. Hopefully, we have 30 days at least before we start, that means we can give them a two-week holiday. They can probably not travel where they want and it gives us two weeks to prepare for the first game. But it is what it is and I can’t see a reason why I should be complaining. I have just got to make the most of it throughout the season and look after them when I can and hopefully some national team coaches will do the same as well.”
