Old tweets from Daniel James showing support for Chelsea surface online after Man Utd transfer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first signing at the club, Manchester United officially unveiled Daniel James to the world recently.

The youngster joins United on the back of an exceptional breakthrough campaign at the Liberty Stadium where he terrorised Championship defenders with his electrifying pace while nicking up four goals and seven assists.

Controversial social media updates from 5 years ago

Within a few hours after his unveiling, tweets from 2014 went viral online, especially amongst Chelsea fans (Twitter).

Back in 2014, James taunted Manchester United for rejoicing a single point against a ten men Chelsea that night.

When asked in the comments that whether he supported Chelsea, the answer was yes.

Man United fans should keep it real though

Wayne Rooney grew up supporting Everton before growing up to become a legend at Old Trafford.

John Terry supported Manchester United as a boy and went on to establish himself as a Blues superstar.

Will he succeed at United?

The track record of young players moving to Old Trafford in recent years has not been overly positive.

James has moved to Manchester during a period of transition for United, and finding his feet in the squad will not be easy.

Although, he can hit the ground running with the right attitude and training, as few can really doubt his ability.


Liverpool fans cite Harry Wilson before brutally mocking Man Utd for Daniel James signing

Liverpool fans are ecstatic at the moment and why wouldn’t they be?! Their team are the European Champions after 14 long years! 

Their arch-rivals Manchester United, on the other hand, had a woeful season, finishing sixth in the Premier League resulting in failure to qualify for Champions League football next season.

While this is going to play a pivotal role in their transfer business, they did manage to sign Daniel James from Swansea City for about £15m.

James enjoyed a breakthrough season with Swansea, scoring 5 goals and providing 10 assists in his name. United fans seemed pleased with their new signing.

But while James is undoubtedly an emerging talent, it didn’t take long for Liverpool fans to shut their Man Utd counterparts down with direct comparisons to their very own youngster Harry Wilson.

Wilson, on loan with Derby County, took the Championships by storm with his 18 goals & 6 assists and was also nominated for the Young Player of the Year award.

The Liverpool loanee accumulated an average of 2.7 shots per game and a 74.6% pass completion rate, which clearly illustrates the composure and the confidence in his game, something that is attracting keen interest from other clubs, including a few Bundesliga outfits (Mirror).

Moreover, even after Wilson’s stellar performances, it is unlikely that he’ll be a part of Liverpool’s squad this season.

And Liverpool fans haven’t forgotten to share the same information with their rivals online –

Quite surprisingly (or not), it seems there are Manchester United fans as well who share the same sentiment –


Man Utd new boy Daniel James tore through the Hungary defence with a scintillating run last night

Manchester United fans were impressed by the 21 year old youngster Daniel James’ performance for Wales on Tuesday night as he showed glimpses of brilliance during their Euro 2020 qualifying defeat against Hungary.

At the 25th minute with nothing to separate the two teams, the former Swansea speedster picked up the ball in his own half on the left flank and galloped down the pitch towards the Hungary defence.

Running through the wing in a long arc with startling pace, he tore through the opposition’s technical area and drew four Hungarian defenders onto him before slipping the ball to Tom Lawrence, who fired a shot straight at the goalkeeper and the attack petered out.

“James’ speed reminds of Usain Bolt – to be so fast like him is really incredible.” said the Hungary coach before the game. From where he stood the Hungary coach watched in awe as barely meters away from where David James started the sprint.

The 21-year-old displayed his amazing pace and some magical trickery with the ball at his feet on several occasions to create good chances for his teammates.

Manchester United confirmed the signing of Swansea’s star midfielder last week for £15m.

Even though Wales fell to a 1-0 loss to Hungary in the EURO 2020 qualification, James was the stand-out player on the pitch showing a lot of promise.

The summer transfer market has just begun and Manchester United have already jumped into the race of signing new players to strengthen their squad.

The Red Devils are close to signing 21-year-old Welsh winger Daniel James from Swansea for an estimated amount of £15 million. It is believed that Daniel has agreed personal terms with the Reds. 

Rebuilding the Reds

Manchester United is going through its worst era of football ever since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson having won only three major trophies: Europa league, FA Cup and the League Cup in a span of six years. 

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is determined on rebuilding the team and the club’s reputation. Daniel James will possibly be the first signing of Ole after taking charge of the club.

James has had an impressive season with the Championship side and is tipped to play a key role at Old Trafford. He is known for his pace and trickery and can play on both the flanks or as a number 10.

“We’ve got scouts scouring the planet for good footballers and we’ll sign players; players that we think is the right fit, personality-wise quality-wise and price-wise,” Solskjaer said in April. “And can you have longevity at this club and I’m confident we’re doing what we can to get the right players in.”

However, some fans are still not confident and believe that this will be another failed signing like Alexis Sanchez while others state that James is bought just to add depth to the squad and will be second to Martial in the picking order.

The club finished 6th in the Premier League and will be participating in the Europa League for the fourth time in nine campaigns in Ole’s first full campaign in charge.

Club legend Ryan Giggs has also been an admirer of the Welshman and acknowledges the fact that this signing can bring about a change in the club. 

“He is on fire at the moment. He is someone who has got genuine speed and someone who is exciting. He can start a game or potentially come on and make an impact. You always want players who are playing regularly and he is playing really well. If you have front players especially who are feeling confident, that’s always a good thing”, said Ryan Giggs.

What can fans expect from Daniel James

Daniel James can fit into multiple positions at Old Trafford. He can play on either flanks in a 4-3-3 formation but with the likes of Rashford, Martial and Sanchez playing on the left flank it is highly likely for James to replace Jesse Lingard on the right flank.

The 21-year-old can also operate as a false nine in a 4-4-2 formation with Rashford and Lukaku or possibly Martial upfront.

United look keen on signing more players this summer in order to retain the club’s legacy and to compete against the top clubs of Europe. Even though Daniel James is pacy and skillful, he still lacks experience which is required to compete in the top flight.
