The below word cloud was generated using all of Manchester United’s match reports from the BBC website from the 2011/2012 season. The more frequently a word is used, the larger it appears on screen. The image was generated using the wonderful wordle.net.
It’s interesting to see United’s Champions League opponents Basel mentioned in the cloud as is the prominence of the word “City”. Rooney remains Manchester United’s most influential player (in match reports anyway) with the likes of Hernandex, Berbatov, Nani and Welbeck also prominent.
