Manchester United fans experience every emotion possible in just 22 seconds

This season hasn’t been kind to Manchester United fans. After more than two decades of success under Sir Alex Ferguson, the sudden dip in form (and position on the table) has left Red Devils’ fans in a pit of despair.

When the once-fearsome club took on mighty Bayern Munich on Wednesday, no one expected Patrice Evra to score a stunner to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.

Euphoria. Tears of joy. Cloud nine. Hope.

But just 22 short seconds later, United fans came crashing back to Earth. Mario Mandzukic shut down the party before it even had a chance to really get started.

It was hard enough for United fans watching from afar to digest what unfolded on their televisions; for the supporters at the Allianz Arena, the pain was tenfold.

It’s the hope that kills you.

Baines set to replace Evra at Manchester United

With David Moyes making the move from Everton to Manchester United at the start of the summer one of the first questions was whether or not he would be looking to bring any of the current Toffees squad with him to Old Trafford - it looks like our questions have been answered.

Baines has been an impressive servant under Moyes and his consistent performances have given him plenty of admirers. But with Baines linked to join United, Evra has made it clear that he doesn’t want to be behind Baines in the pecking order.

The race to sign David Villa has also started hotting up, and Manchester City looks set to bring in some new faces.

For all these rumors and more check out today’s edition of Paper Chase.

Patrice Evra mocks Luis Suarez, bites fake arm thrown on pitch

image
If you thought that Manchester United winning their 20th Premier League title would knock Luis Suarez out of the news, you were wrong. Once the Red Devils finished their destruction of Aston Villa to clinch the BPL title, the players broke into celebration. After a fan threw a fake arm onto the pitch, Patrice Evra played along and took a bite out of it.

Clearly, a metaphorical slap in the face to Luis Suarez, who set off the soccer world with his bite in Sunday’s game. For those that don’t recall, Luis Suarez was banned 8 matches in 2011 after he was found guilty of racially abusing Evra. 

Fresh off of his fifth Premier League title with Manchester United, it would appear that Patrice Evra got the last laugh.
