On the 23rd of June AL Arabiya posted on their website that Al Jazeera sport are in the lead to win the EPL broadcasting and branding rights in around $350m for three years from MP & Silva.
And that ADM have offered MP & Silva half of what they paid back then ($360m) when they won the rights for 2010-2013 rights.
Today a new twist happened when we were waiting for the expected announcement based on @koooraworld post on Instagram MP & Silva are still listening for bids and Al Jazeera Sport won nothing yet!! it is said that OSN are in the race with some national broadcasters bidding for their nation rights (Saudia, Iraq, Dubai and Sharqah) and nothing can be sorted until the last days before the EPL kicks off. The source also stated that we will only give exclusivity broadcasting if we got some crazy bid.
43 days left till the EPL kicks off and we’re still in the dark

لم يعد استاد «أولد ترافورد» بعيداً عن الكويت، فمساء الأحد الماضي تجمع عدد من اعضاء رابطة مشجعي مانشستر يونايتد” الانكليزي في البلاد في احد المطاعم على الواجهة البحرية لشارع الخليج العربي لمتابعة المباراة التي جمعت بين «الشياطين الحمر» وتشلسي في الدور ربع النهائي من مسابقة كأس انكلترا.
صحيح ان المباراة شهدت مفترقات دراماتيكية اذ تقدم مان يونايتد 2- صفر، ثم قنع بالتعادل 2-2 غير ان مجرد تجمع «شباب الديرة» بشكل حضاري لمتابعة احدى المباريات ينم عن وعي من شأنه ابعاد هؤلاء عن الآفات التي يعاني منها “المجتمع.
That was on alrai newspaper today and it was a shock we saw someone from alrai with a cam but didn’t expect to see it on the newspaper the other day. anyways iv spoken about the game already and i guess thats enough
Special thanks for @applebeeskw for hosting us and @alraimediagroup for the coverage
A disappointing result to be honest we could have finished the game with easy win we played well for the first half and then it seems like another united team took over the pitch in the second half??
What went wrong? why are we playing this bad? our passing was awful we gave away too many balls to chelsea and then we were saved by David De Gea amazing foot clearance which we didn’t need if we had finished the games earlier.
Valencia and Evra they both started the season on a high level and now they’re pulling us back!! one footed player and a left back that cant cover his place well
Since we lost to Madrid last tuesday and the moral has been down for a reason. Everyone wants to win the ECL we outplayed then but it wasn’t meant to be and for the third time we’ve been knocked out because of a harsh decision.
The season is not over yet we still have a chance for a double like we did in (93/94 & 95/96) and thats by beating chelsea and carry on through the FA cup. On the other hand every game is a final now since we have to secure 19 points out if the remaining 30 to win the league.
Last time we won the cup was in 2004 when we defeated Millwall 3-0. Other than Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes no one in the squad have had an FA Cup medal with United and thats a big motivation for them specially our young guns.
Manchester United have faced Chelsea 11 times in the FA Cup, and won eight of those encounters. Their last meeting was in the 2007 final, where Didier Drogba’s extra-time goal won a truly dreadful match. United defeated Chelsea four times in the 1990s in this competition, including in the 1994 final.
I got a phone call tuesday the 19th of feb. around 5:20 telling me that I’m invited for dinner with Dwight Yorke the first thing came on my mind was
“Start spreading the news
He’s playing today
I want to see him score again
Dwight Yorke, Dwight Yorke
If he can score from there
He’ll score from anywhere
It’s up to you
Dwight Yorke, dwighttt yorrkkkee”
Now I have to confirm a list of the MUSC Kuwait founders to be invited with me. I was so shocked n so excited since Yorkey was one of the strike force that helped United win the treble in 1999. Anyways an hour later I called back confirming the number of guests and went on calling the founders one after another. 24hours left and I still can’t believe this is happening.
The atmosphere was great he was so nice with people very humble he just leave his dish for whoever wanna take picture with him and he was always smiling . At the end we handed him one of our Polo Shirts he was happy and didn’t except that to happen we took few pics make him sign on some of the jerseys we have but sadly happy moments cant last forever ;/ !! he had to leave because of the busy schedule next day.
Special thanks to MUFC Marketing team, VIVA telecom and Ghaliah Technology for making this happen.

“Champions Manchester United staged a magnificent comeback to overwhelm Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
Spurs had been 3-0 up at half time after outplaying their opponents.”
But in the second half things changed and United turned the table upside down scoring 5 goals to finish the match Spurs 3-5 United
3-1 Andy Cole (46)
3-2 Laurent Blanc (58)
3-3 Ruud van Nistelrooy (72)
3-4 Juan Sebastián Verón (76)
3-5 David Beckham (87)
We had an amazing run against spurs not losing for 26 consecutive matches until we lost 2-3 last september. It is important to get a positive result since City will be playing Fulham one day earlier so its either maintaining the 7 points gap or increasing that number inshallah
United will have 2 more matches in January v Fulham in FA cup then Southampton in the EPL. to join us watch Spurs v United with the MUSC please apply here
