Them manufacturers know who their market is. The truth is football is a religion no matter what, SM you will always be a Manu fan just like I will always back Barca. If that means buying a lame jersey I really don't mind.

T&T national kit looks good to me only because I know it the national kit.

Only ManU would be able to sell a crap shirt like that.

Before you start Spurs are a close second :-\.

so why Ronaldo is the only man front and center with his arms folded. how he could block out the main sponsor so? he eh realise that AIG pay big money to get on that jersey?

Post by: JDB on June 30, 2007, 09:01:58 PM
nice shirt for sure but...

Why a new shirt after launching one just last year? The life-cycle for these shirts used to be two years, now it is one.

Makes you wonder if the Glazers are pushing for this, try to squeeze a little extra money from the fans.

nopes..The kit we used last year was a kit used to honour the busby babes..   The kit had the same look of the 1950's kit



Here is a short informative story:

The new(06-07) Manchester United shirt is a limited edition, one year only design (obviously to help repay the Glazer debt) and is described by the club as being "1950’s retro style – a tribute to the success of the Busby Babes and their enduring influence". The name of new sponsor AIG is far smaller than its predecessor, the domineering Vodaphone logo, resulting in a classy looking kit. There's a gold seem running along the shoulders and down the sides whilst the club crest is placed onto a white background similar to the 1997-99 European shirt. Whether it sells in large volumes is yet to be seen and may depend on whether funds are made available for any new big named signings. Interestingly, the kit is almost an exact replica of the one worn the previous season by breakaway fans' team, FC United. (Launch date July 24th 2006. Expires July 2007).

Reds launch new home kit


United have unveiled their new home kit ahead of the new season.

A giant image of the team in the new Nike-produced kit adorns the East Stand window at Old Trafford. The players will wear it for the first time during their first match of their Asia Tour against Urawa Red Diamonds in Japan later this month.

The front of the new home shirt features an engineered mesh pattern inspired by the architecture of Old Trafford and the contours of the body. On the back a flash of white tape frames the name and number with a fine black stripe, MUFC and the Red Devil emblem inside. As a final touch there is a label with the Red Devil emblem and the nickname 'The Red Devils.' White shorts and black socks complete the kit.

It has been made using Nike Dri-FIT fabric which helps transport moisture away from the skin to the fabric’s surface for rapid evaporation, keeping the players comfortable for longer. It's already a popular design with the squad and they believe the fans will be equally impressed.

"It’s very important to feel comfortable when you’re playing and hopefully this kit will be a good one for us in all types of weather conditions," Wayne Rooney told ManUtd.com.

"It’s quite simple and traditional which is the way I like the kits to be," added skipper Gary Neville. "I’m sure the fans will like it."

Fans should visit http://www.myspace.com/manutd to see more images and a behind-the-scenes video from the kit shoot with the players. Supporters can post their views on the kit and also win a signed shirt. The kit is now available to pre-order through store.manutd.com or at the Megastore, Old Trafford. It will be available for delivery and purchase from 1 August.

New Manchester United signings Nani and Anderson have both put pen to paper on five-year deals.

Portugal winger Nani, 20, and Brazil midfielder Anderson, 19, cost a combined £30m when joining from Sporting Lisbon and Porto respectively.

The pair, along with fellow new signing Owen Hargreaves, will be officially unveiled to the media soon.

Meanwhile, Polish keeper Tomasz Kuszczak also made his season-long loan from West Brom into a permanent move. :beermug:


United gained a work permit for Anderson, after their initial application was rejected as he had not played 75% of Brazil's internationals during the last two years.

United argued that Anderson, who made his Brazil debut in the Copa America defeat by Mexico last week, had been prevented by his age into filling that criteria.

They also argued that he will bring exceptional talent to the Premier League.

Nani had been linked to a move to Tottenham, but said he would only leave Sporting to join a club like United.

Kuszczak joined United on loan from West Brom last August, and as understudy to Old Trafford number Edwin van der Sar made six Premier League and five FA Cup starts last season.

Rooney harbours high hopes

Wayne Rooney spent last season desperate to get his hands on his first Premier League trophy. Now he's held the prize aloft, he can't wait to add to his medal tally.

Rooney, who joined United from Everton in August 2004 and has now won both the league and the Carling Cup with the Reds, told The Mirror he's hungry for more success.

"It's just not just about winning the odd trophy," he said. "It's about winning them all the time."

The 21-year-old striker, who last week switched squad numbers to take over the no.10 shirt previously worn by United hitmen Denis Law and Mark Hughes, said legends like those provided constant motivation.

"The [current] players know their role in keeping up the club's amazing history and success. Players in the past have set the standard: now we've got to carry it on."

 Carlos Tevez has agreed to join Manchester United on loan - sources have told Sky Sports News.

The Argentine international is set to join United on a initial two-year term, with an option for a further three-year stay at Old Trafford.

It is reported that a United delegation has flown to Venezuela - where Tevez is with Argentina competing in the Copa America.

United want Tevez signed and sealed as soon as possible, so they have travelled to South America to conclude the deal.

United will be hopeful of concluding the deal within the next 48 hours.

Utd recruits 9-year-old featured on Internet
Associated Press
Posted: 1 hour ago

Manchester United has recruited a 9-year-old soccer prodigy based on video footage featuring his skills.
The club brought in Rhain Davis after his grandfather sent a DVD to United youth staff showing the boy playing for an under-10 team in Brisbane, Australia.

"Manchester United is proud of its history of developing talented young players, and invests considerable time and resources into trying to find the best young players of the future," the club said in a statement.


In Davis' case, however, United need only have invested four minutes. That is the length of a YouTube clip featuring Davis's dribbling, stepover and goal-scoring skills - viewed more than 800,000 times on the site - that has led fans to describe him as the next Wayne Rooney.

The club has downplayed such hype, pointing out that it recruits about 40 players of Davis' age every year, and that Davis' status with the club will be subject to the same annual review as any other youth player.

Davis has moved to England and is training with a United youth squad.

"Being here has been brilliant," The Sun newspaper quoted Davis as saying. "The best part has been meeting a lot of the players, like Wayne Rooney."

Davis was born in England and has a British passport. His grandfather lives in England.

I doh see de problem either...nuff teams have youth recruiters constantly looking for future prospects. Is de youth side he wil be playing for, not senior. Over-expectant parents does even push dey kids into the game by trying to get them in the youth squad of a big name side. If this little feller like football and have obvious talent...well good for he. Not many does survive going up the ranks though so we will see.

De boy could play eh.  Ah would n't say he fast but he have some moves and good shooting skills.  De video also shows how disorganized and horrendous de opposition is.  I've been coaching this age group for the last 3 years and none of my teams looked so bad.  It had a Brazilian yute who came 2 years ago and we had to move him up two age brackets and he still end up as de Top Scorer.  It have real talent everywhere.  Sometimes yuh need luck but where preparation meets opportunity, great things happen.  I wish him luck because is only a few years to go before de hacking start to replace de matador defense.

Man Utd video star faces tough task

If you didn't know the name Rhain Davis before, you almost certainly do now.

The nine-year-old, a recent recruit for Manchester United's academy, is now the talk of football - thanks to a DVD of him in action for Brisbane club Redlands United.

He even made the front page of The Sun newspaper - who have immediately, and somewhat inevitably, dubbed him the new Wayne Rooney.

Only 9 years old, youngster captures the soccer world

Rhain Davis has journeyed from Brisbane, Australia, to enroll in the Manchester United academy in England. He is 9.

The flow of embryonic soccer talents across oceans is quickening, and Davis may be part of a new trend - boyhood precocity spotted via the Internet.

During the past week, Freddy Adu has left the United States to join Benfica of Portugal, Alexandre Pato has arrived at AC Milan from Brazil and Pier Larraurio of Peru has started to take lessons with Bayern Munich.

YouTube prodigy deserves space to fully develop

Rhain Davis has created a YouTube phenomenon around a schoolchild that, for once, doesn't involve happy-slapping. Manchester United's nine-year-old signing is at the forefront of a new way to project sporting prodigies into the public eye.

The four-minute clip highlighting Davis' extraordinary mastery of a football is heading beyond four million hits on the hugely popular video-posting website. More people have already witnessed him in action than most lower-league professionals experience over an entire career.

Article above posted by Zeppo mentions Pierre Larrauri Corroy ... I missed it at the time of posting but just yesterday someone brought the player to my attention ... not only is his on-field demanour wicked, but his interviewing style and ease manifest a level of maturity and confidence that's hard to miss.

http://www.goal.com/images/21606_hp.jpg

13 year-old affiliated with Bayern ... Peruvian; born in Italy ...

Time will tell

*****

I recently saw a compilation of video of a player with whom I'm personally familiar. The footage begins with him @ age 3 ... he's now approaching 15 ... the progression alone is compelling as is the age-specific ability ... but the most outstanding thing on the video was his technical skill ... further, there's a relaxed part of the clip in which his Brazilian individual trainer does a trick and then the kid repeats it first time having never seen/performed some of the stuff ... then it turns into a trick challenge back and forth between both of them ... quite impressive ... sort of like a choreographer demonstrating to dancers in one take ... the constant throughout the video is the goalscoring ... perhaps 50 or more of them ...

When I met him at 8 his parents had already been speaking to him about being a professional player. He had the idiosyncratic thing going on as well ... long hair etc ... his look was so completely androgynous most observers didn't know whether he was a phenomenal girl or boy ...

They're from Ukraine and are fully dedicated to their only kid ...he's met some famous Brazilian players along the way ... he's Brazil crazy ... worst case scenario is that this kid will be a very competent collegiate player ... but they're encouraged he can find playing space above this level and will examine that to the end of the horizon ... meanwhile, the kid studies as hard as he practices ...

I shared the video with some oldheads (including the guy who pointed Larrauri out to me who has German lower division playing experience) and they were wowed ...

... as far as reliance on video evaluation generally ... in discussing the composition of his squad and my insistence that we had some secondary school players in T&T that could make the grade ... a head coach once told me that he's reluctant to depend on it, especially in the US college scene because of the uneveness of high school competition ... so level of competition at travelling team/elite play is key re: evaluation ... certainly ManU must receive hundreds of video applicants every year ...

BBC prediction:
The return of Roy Keane to Old Trafford. But he's now had a realisation of what it will take to stay in this division. He's addressed that by bringing in a few new players this week.

I expect Sunderland to battle and scrap as their manager did when he played, but Man United will just have too much quality.

Prediction: 2-0

Lat time United played Sunderland they had a blinder and the score was 0-0 killing United's late push for the title.

Sunderland is the kinda side that usually salts United, like West ham last year and with Keane, Yorke, McSHane, Richardson and Higginbotham all returning to United , an upset would make a big big story.

I don't think that this one is a foregone conclusion.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has mixed emotions as prepares to face Sunderland.

As he looks forward to welcoming back former club captain Roy Keane to Old Trafford, the veteran boss is still coming to terms with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's early retirement.

Both players have carved their name in United's folklore and earned Ferguson's respect in the process.

Keane is beginning to make as much of an impact as a manager as he did as player, leading Sunderland into the Barclays Premier League in his first season in charge.

Ferguson said: ``Roy will get a great reception and that's what makes me proud to be manager here. It tells you what a great club we are.

``Former players like Bryan Robson, Mark Hughes and Steve Bruce get a fantastic reception.

``Sometimes the supporters actually chant the players' names. I remember that happening to Andy Cole and Teddy Sheringham.

``Mind you, someone did wave back once and got absolutely slaughtered.''

While Keane's departure from United was swift and unexpected, Ferguson has nothing but admiration for him.

He said: ``When players are coming to the end of their career, it is a difficult time.

``They are almost family and it is not easy when they have to leave.

``They have been great servants and great players for you. I have had to do it a few times.''

Solskjaer's time is up, however, after persistent knee problems meant limited appearances for a striker who famously scored the winner for United in the 1999 European Cup final.

Ferguson revealed the Norwegian knew he had to hang up his boots when he broke down in training last week.

He said: ``Ole's latest operations in March and in the summer got to him in big way in a sense he felt it was hard to get back from it.

``He tried to train 10 days ago and it did not work out again.

``I think he knew he had to face reality. He could easily have jogged along and taken his money but not Ole.

``He faced the situation and spoke to me about it. In many ways it is the right moment because it gives him a chance to be a coach with us.''

With Solsjkaer forced to quit and Wayne Rooney ruled out with a broken foot, Ferguson is short on attacking options.

However Louis Saha (knee) and Anderson (hamstring) are likely to come into contention against Sunderland.

Keane does not expect the red carpet to be rolled out for his return to the scene of his greatest triumphs.

Keane won seven Premiership titles, four FA Cups and was a frustrated by-stander as United completed an unprecedented Treble in 1999 by lifting the Champions League trophy in Barcelona during a remarkable 12-year spell at the club.

His place in the United pantheon is assured despite his later differences with the fiery Scot which served to hasten his exit to Celtic in November 2005 after 480 appearances.

However, Keane will walk back through the doors expecting nothing in the way of star treatment.

He said: ``I am not expecting a red carpet or hugs and kisses from anybody. I won't be and I wouldn't expect it.

``Let's be under no illusions here, United and Alex Ferguson will want to beat Sunderland and myself as much as any other club, and rightly so. You wouldn't expect anything different.

``I have said many times before, I have played against teams before there and you just looked at them in the tunnel and they were already beaten.

``We have just got to make sure we are not beaten in the tunnel.''

Keane celebrated - if celebrated is the right word during a week in which his side was humbled in the Carling Cup by League One Luton and on-loan defender Clive Clarke almost died during Leicester's game at Nottingham Forest - a year at the helm this week.

It has been nothing if not eventful with last season's surge from the foot of the Championship table to its pinnacle fully rewarding the faith placed in him by chairman Niall Quinn.

Keane said: ``It's only been a year, it's very, very surprising. It seems a lot longer, but I am certainly enjoying it.''

It is not in Keane's nature to shirk a challenge and the prospect of taking on Ferguson, who along with Brian Clough, took his football education to new levels, is one he is relishing.

He said: ``Alex Ferguson came from Scotland and he is clearly a winner, he was just motivated by winning, whether it be when we played the top teams or the bottom teams, a game of cards on the bus, he wanted to win.

``It was fantastic working with him and I count my blessings that I was given that opportunity.''

Ferguson said: ``Roy will get a great reception and that's what makes me proud to be manager here. It tells you what a great club we are.

``Former players like Bryan Robson, Mark Hughes and Steve Bruce get a fantastic reception.

``Sometimes the supporters actually chant the players' names. I remember that happening to Andy Cole and Teddy Sheringham.

``Mind you, someone did wave back once and got absolutely slaughtered.''

Title: Kenwyne Jones to make Premiership Debut at Old Trafford, Cole on Bench
Post by: Warrior till death on September 01, 2007, 08:42:51 AM
Kenwyne Jones and Danny Higginbotham are in line to make their Sunderland debuts at Manchester United tomorrow.

Both players were in the Black Cats squad that travelled to the North-West this afternoon.

Dean Whitehead (knee), Carlos Edwards (hamstring) and Stanislav Varga (knee) are missing from Sunderland's injury-hit squad.

And there is a doubt over ex-United man Kieran Richardson (back), but Paul McShane (shoulder) is expected to be fit.

Greg Halford is suspended so Nyron Nosworthy, formerly a full-back, is favourite to play at right-back.

The game comes too soon for Andrew Cole - the former United striker is not yet match fit - and new signing Ian Harte is unlikely to feature despite receiving his international clearance today.

Grant Leadbitter could start his first Premier League game of the season.

Nah. That is how KJ does play sometimes. That was Southampton's biggest complaint. And allegedly that's why he and the Southampton coach fall out. They allegedly had a cuss out in training (according to some message board ah read the other day).

Still 0-0...I can see Man U scoring though because they dominating possession, at times is like power play in hockey

Yorke is very composed and reassuring like kicker mentioned...and I agree that Kenwyne could stand to hustle more. Chopra hustling plenty and he is a striker. Also when jumping to win the ball by header, not sure if Kenwyne hoping for a lucky bounce because Evra and Ferdinand always winning it (and Kenwyne has higher jump and bigger physique than them two)

Great to see him and Yorke starting though. Ferguson mussbe tell his players to mark Yorke hard because everytime he have the ball men converging on him.

I noticed that too, maybe he's a little nervous.

Nervousness should result in trying too hard as opposed to not trying hard enough...that's what I thought....

Kenwyne nursing a slight hamstring injury so he is not 100% .

Fair enough- but hear nuh...lock the keys on yuh phone nah....yuh pocket dial meh again this mornin'- ah answer your call and iz only rustlin' in the background and baby cryin' in the distance.... ;D

   When a corner or a cross is whipped in to the first post that quickly, the 'keeper doesn't have as much time to react to the speed of the cross as well as generate the force needed to move two and three men out the way to get to the ball.  His defenders have to make sure that NO united players get a run up to attack the ball.  Gordon had it covered until his own defender and Saha appeared in front of him.  Saha had no right being able to get to that ball, at least not if he was being marked out of the box.

Good point fully agree...the marking was bad....keeper appeared to be flapping a bit though. I eh sayin' it woulda been easy given the pace of the cross but I've seen keepers come charging through at the near post and get a solid fist on crosses like that that fall in the 6 yrd box- I think he coulda gotten there.

losing both of them at the same time is really a big blow

All in all two very hard games back to back against 2 teams expected to play for the title. They weren't discreditted at all,but really need to show some creative spark.

Hopefully both Carlos and Richardson will be back after the international break and they could practice with the new strike force...

Wallace shoulda let Yorke take the first free kick chance they had. He would be more likely to get it on target. But great game by the captain.

He then went on to say that Whitehead's injury is worse off than first thought.  He said that it was initially thought to be a six week lay off but now he will be out for up to six months.

How carlos name get call in dat?

Fair enough debut from Kenwyne

He played up top by himself for a team that had no ideas in attack. He looked a little lazy in the first half, but I get the feeling he not match fit as this is his first game. He also has a slight injury and he proably played to instructions giving the long run out he got. Debut in an away game against ManU as the lone striker. Not bad at all. He def. picked up the intensity in the 2nd half. I was pleased to see all the Sunderland fans give him a standing ovation when he came off. He obviously worked even harder off the ball (and off the camera) than I could see on TV cuz you doh get no standing ovation from English fans if you eh have no hustle. His first touch when he had a little room looked good too

Dwight was a boss. No surprise that Roy gave him the full 90. Dwight is usually the first man off..Keane was just in giving him the full game. Hopefully this is just Yorke now getting back into the groove of the EPL. Took him a while to settle last year in the Championship too. Keep it up skipper

Sunderland needs Carlos and Richardson for a little spark in the attack

Chopra was unlucky but he worked hard. He is a dam good forward but was sacrificed tactically and played in the midfield for the most part. With service he is a natural born goalscorer..doh expect too much from him in the midfield..so I doh know what is this Bichall for Chopra talks  ;D

Post by: palos on September 01, 2007, 01:16:10 PM
I actually thought Chopra was quite decent playing out of position today.  He is a striker and was playin wide right midfield.  

Kenwyne could have put a bit more pressure on the defence when they had the ball I feel.  He was guilty of ball watchin quite a bit.  His first touch, especially early on in the game wasn't good at all.  Also thought he went down surprisingly easily under challenge.  I look back to the game against England and he gave both Terry (especially) and Ferdinand a lot more pressure then than today.  That said, he had a thankless task today with little or no support.  Not a bad debut especially in a tough environment.  On a side note, I'm impressed more and more with Vidic.  He is excellent and Man Utd has what I would call a true world class defender.

Dwight was good doing what he does.  The only thing I ask myself is.....what is that exactly?  What is his role in the team?  Dwight sits just in front of the defence.  He's not a tackler or ball winner a la Makelele, more of a "make myself available and play a simple pass" kind of player now.  He has shown very little creativity i.e. passes putting pressure on the opposition defence.  So if he's neither defensive or creative or even attacking midfielder, so what's his role?  Midfield organizer maybe?  Just a little puzzled.  I mean...he always looks nice and composed on the ball etc but I just wondering how effective his role is on this team.  I not tryin to put down Dwight eh....I jes a lil puzzled re: this position and what it supposed to achieve.

I agree with the poster who said Sunderland badly needs a creative midfielder.  They have little creativity and it shows just how much they miss Carlos as he at least adds some attacking thrust to put some sort of pressure on the defence.  Murphy again did nothing for me.  He must perform real good in practice.

Sunderand look like a jokey team.  Them men cyar hold the fricken ball for 4 passes.  Both wingbacks need to go.  In the premiership, you wingbacks must help in the attack and neither of them comfortable with the ball at their feet.

Kenwyne could have put a bit more pressure on the defence when they had the ball I feel.  He was guilty of ball watchin quite a bit.  His first touch, especially early on in the game wasn't good at all.  Also thought he went down surprisingly easily under challenge.  I look back to the game against England and he gave both Terry (especially) and Ferdinand a lot more pressure then than today.  That said, he had a thankless task today with little or no support.  Not a bad debut especially in a tough environment.  On a side note, I'm impressed more and more with Vidic.  He is excellent and Man Utd has what I would call a true world class defender.

Dwight was good doing what he does.  The only thing I ask myself is.....what is that exactly?  What is his role in the team?  Dwight sits just in front of the defence.  He's not a tackler or ball winner a la Makelele, more of a "make myself available and play a simple pass" kind of player now.  He has shown very little creativity i.e. passes putting pressure on the opposition defence.  So if he's neither defensive or creative or even attacking midfielder, so what's his role?  Midfield organizer maybe?  Just a little puzzled.  I mean...he always looks nice and composed on the ball etc but I just wondering how effective his role is on this team.  I not tryin to put down Dwight eh....I jes a lil puzzled re: this position and what it supposed to achieve.

I agree with the poster who said Sunderland badly needs a creative midfielder.  They have little creativity and it shows just how much they miss Carlos as he at least adds some attacking thrust to put some sort of pressure on the defence.  Murphy again did nothing for me.  He must perform real good in practice.

 

What game you was watching today?

Firstly, I find yorke put in real tackle and interceptions today.. He was getting back well and filling in the spaces.. To me,  it was a performance reminiscent of his World Cup performances.. Yorke was the only man on that side for me settling down the play and knocking the simple ball.. He was controlling the tempo of the game, and bringing some much needed calmness and structure to Sunderland's play.. Etuhu was doing more of the dogwork...

Allyuh really feel a defensive mid supposed to tackle and enforce??

Then how do you explain Pirlo??

What does Tugay do at Blackburn?

What does Carrick do at Man Utd??

Or what was Latapy doing at Porto?

All it is really is a midfielder playing a withdrawn role who responsibility is to make the simple passes on the offensive end... All them players I call there don't make big advances into the box, they control the game from a withdrawn midfield role.. Don't act like de man useless..

No need to check, the commentators did not say that. They were talking about Whitehead.Whitehead has a cruciate knee injury, Carlos has a hamstring injury.

Ooops my bad  :-X .

Dwight was a boss. No surprise that Roy gave him the full 90. Dwight is usually the first man off..Keane was just in giving him the full game. Hopefully this is just Yorke now getting back into the groove of the EPL. Took him a while to settle last year in the Championship too. Keep it up skipper

Yorke did nothing to be subbed for...and it kinda hard to sub yuh skipper too.

I think he played well. And Dwight has been captaining the side and getting subbed quite early in every 2nd half..Even been subbed at half time as the skipper, so it ain't that hard to sub your skipper..not for Keano anyway..if he feel yuh eh doing the business. I think today Yorke did the business.

I think Yorke doing exactly what Guardiala used to do for Barca and Spain. He is an organizer. Not really a ball winner (that is Etuhu) and not killing you with a set of probing passes but controlling the tempo of the game by always being available for the ball and keeping possession allowing other player to get into position. to be fair..he won is fair share of tackles too

I now see why it have so much bachannal on this site.

The commentator clearly stated that both carlos edwards and dean whitehead are key performers for Sunderland that are missing.

He then went on to say that Whitehead's injury is worse off than first thought.  He said that it was initially thought to be a six week lay off but now he will be out for up to six months.

How carlos name get call in dat?

Allyuh fellas ent easy atall.......

ah love it!!

On another note, Sunderland in ah real mess.....Lard fadder!! but I will still support them.

They need a creative midfielder really really badly.......someone who can be the link between the midfield and the forwards.......

The keeper real good, the goal was ah hard luck.

Kenwyne was king jumping jack today......but he fought hard.

ah love it!!


thanks for clearing this up...

The bacchanal was because the commentators clearly mentioned carlos edwards, then said the "knee" injury was worse than first expected and instead of 6 weeks he'd be out 6 months.. Neither myself, nor the other 4 people I watched the game with heard anything about Whitehead.

    Sunderland played well today.  The top 3 players were the keeper (Craig Gordon), Higginbotham, and Yorke.  Higginbotham was very impressive on his debut; with him in place the Sunderland defense ( with McShane and Nosworthy) is now definitely above CCchampionship quality.   Yorke played well today.  He was definitely energized and tracking back more often than usual to defend, etc .  Between the 20th min and 70 min, a significant fraction of the midfield play was going through Yorke.    Kenwyne looked decent on his debut.  I was happy and jumped-up when I saw his name on the starting line-up.  He did not get any real chance, and maybe not even a half-a-chance, so it is not possible to say too much.  I think the cheering by the fans when he came off,  was a way of saying welcome. On a team like Sunderland, the lone striker has to create the chances for himself; and that is asking too much from Jones at this time.

Tough luck on the goal, in some ways ManU got away with one today.  I agree with this
   When a corner or a cross is whipped in to the first post that quickly, the 'keeper doesn't have as much time to react to the speed of the cross as well as generate the force needed to move two and three men out the way to get to the ball.  His defenders have to make sure that NO united players get a run up to attack the ball.  Gordon had it covered until his own defender and Saha appeared in front of him.  Saha had no right being able to get to that ball, at least not if he was being marked out of the box.

Yorke made a few critical tackles today, especially the one sometime in the first quarter.  He also closed down the lanes of the attackers when they were just outside the box. Took away the ball from attackers like Saha (around the 80th min)  etc. One star in the midfield can only do so much. If he had capable wingers to work with or more than one forward, then the story would be different.  In the absence of Yorke, the Sunderland midfield does not look like that of a prem team as we saw in the Birmingham and Everton games.

A holding midfielder I guess ?

Trust me....I see de same thing. De man only make about 2 mistakes, BUT, to me too often he slow down the forward motion of the team, and way too often, HIS PLAY RESULTED IN PRESSURE ON THE DEFENDERS, OR SOMEONE WHO HE PLAY A SLOW BALL TO.

Ah mean, allyuh understand me, the man just passing to the next nearest man, never forward only sideways, and at the slightest hint of pressure, backwards to the defence, and then he not supporting the pass he just made so he not involved in any one/twos, and the pass he making to the next man slow, slow slow, so the same pressure he was under the man he pass to under that same pressure too. Me eh sure if that is controlling midfield tempo. That is more like interrupting momentum. It just seems to me like he at odds with the rest of the team play.

But he eh really make any mistakes so I suppose........

Personally I woulda prefer more conviction going forward in that position.

Nosworthy is BS me eh care wha allyuh say. He touch de ball plenty too, but that is because he had no choice. After that was one setta boom kick football to no one in particular.

Sunderland looks like a team that needs plenty more playing time together. Sometimes they even looked downright disorganized, and they struggling to decide if they want to play a nice knock game or ah hoof kick long ball.
They better improve quick or else Stern might be the only Trini in the EPL next season. :devil:

Hahaha...Palos yuh believe I was gonna start a thread asking the same question about Yorkie....I thought about it and I think he breaks up plays a little more than we give him credit for. He had two timely and very crucial tackles/interceptions around the area today that I can remember, and I'm sure he did some other ball winning that went somewhat unnoticed.
 
And by "sitting" in front of the defense, he does block channels- important and difficult to recognize as a spectator.

His ability to receive a ball in a high pressure situation and hold it up, so that the team can regain shape and rebuild with players in position cannot be taken forgranted either...He makes it look easy,so it could appear that he has a "stroll around the park" style of play, but I think the role is huge and alot more difficult to execute than you give it credit for especially at the frenetic pace of European/English football. I think Claudio Reyna does/did something very similar role-wise.

Yorke's game today was very similar to the game he played for us against England in the W.C.- a job very well done...

Personally I woulda prefer more conviction going forward in that position.

A once great and very powerful man in football echoed your sentiments regarding a certain player by the name of Claude Makalele.

He said, "He's useless, he's not skillfull, he can't head the ball or pass the ball more than 10 yards".

This ushered in a great period of demise for the once mighty Real Madrid.

His name was Florentino Perez and right now he looks at games from the comfort of a rocking chair.

Yorke's effectiveness was in his simplicity. Lets not take away from the fact that it was Manchester United they were playing, hence their midfield would always be under pressure give the significant superiority in positioning, athleticism, skill etc.. So yes the players who received the pass were under pressure but, that ent have nothing to do with the quality of ball they was getting from Yorke. Also many times I saw where they coulda just knock a simple ball back for Yorke, instead they hoof it aimlessly up the line.

All in all is shithounds de man was playing with. If we had take today's-game Yorke and slap him into the Man United midfield we all woulda be screaming about how composed de man look.. But when he lateral pass going to a Rob Wallace/McShane/Leadbitter who ent have the requisite skill to know what to do with it, what yuh expect..

Yorke ent Jesus, he cyah turn water into wine...

Keane's Comments

When you lose 1-0 it's disappointing, especially when it comes from a set-piece, but that's the Premier League for you. One lapse in concentration and you concede a goal.

It's disappointing but I'm relatively pleased with the players' efforts and performance levels.

It would have been nice if we could have tested their keeper a bit more. We looked okay just before we conceded. We had had a warning a few minutes before from a corner and we got away with it, but not second time around.

There was no doubt in my mind that there would be a reaction. The players did well, they seemed to enjoy it.

Now we've got to produce that kind of performance in every game, not just in the big games and at the big stadiums. If we play at that level, we'll be fine for the rest of the season.

We've had a disruptive week. One or two players are injured and it meant people had to play out of position.

The players deserve extra plaudits, because one or two were playing out of position, and we had two making their debuts.

That considered, I'm relatively happy. But I've got to say it's difficult to be positive straight after a game when you have lost.

The the debutants did very well. I would have liked us to get more support to Kenwyne Jones, but it's easier said than done when you are playing Man United at Old Trafford.

Yorkie played very well - all the players gave it their all and it's all you ask for.


It would have been nice to have more quality going forward. ??? It was not to be and we look forward to Reading.

It's hard when you have lost. I'm grateful for the reception I got but I was focused on trying to win a football match.

Four points from five games - I would like to have a few more but we've had a difficult start. When you have Liverpool and Man United back-to-back, it's tough.

I'm more than confident that we will be fine. We'll have one or two lads back and we can get them training.

Dwight was good doing what he does.  The only thing I ask myself is.....what is that exactly?  What is his role in the team?  Dwight sits just in front of the defence.  He's not a tackler or ball winner a la Makelele, more of a "make myself available and play a simple pass" kind of player now.  He has shown very little creativity i.e. passes putting pressure on the opposition defence.  So if he's neither defensive or creative or even attacking midfielder, so what's his role?  Midfield organizer maybe?  Just a little puzzled.  I mean...he always looks nice and composed on the ball etc but I just wondering how effective his role is on this team.  I not tryin to put down Dwight eh....I jes a lil puzzled re: this position and what it supposed to achieve.

I was wondering if I was the only one who notice that...

A holding midfielder I guess ?

Trust me....I see de same thing. De man only make about 2 mistakes, BUT, to me too often he slow down the forward motion of the team, and way too often, HIS PLAY RESULTED IN PRESSURE ON THE DEFENDERS, OR SOMEONE WHO HE PLAY A SLOW BALL TO.

Ah mean, allyuh understand me, the man just passing to the next nearest man, never forward only sideways, and at the slightest hint of pressure, backwards to the defence, and then he not supporting the pass he just made so he not involved in any one/twos, and the pass he making to the next man slow, slow slow, so the same pressure he was under the man he pass to under that same pressure too. Me eh sure if that is controlling midfield tempo. That is more like interrupting momentum. It just seems to me like he at odds with the rest of the team play.

But he eh really make any mistakes so I suppose........

Personally I woulda prefer more conviction going forward in that position.

A once great and very powerful man in football echoed your sentiments regarding a certain player by the name of Claude Makalele.

He said, "He's useless, he's not skillfull, he can't head the ball or pass the ball more than 10 yards".

This ushered in a great period of demise for the once mighty Real Madrid.

His name was Florentino Perez and right now he looks at games from the comfort of a rocking chair.

Yorke's effectiveness was in his simplicity. Lets not take away from the fact that it was Manchester United they were playing, hence their midfield would always be under pressure give the significant superiority in positioning, athleticism, skill etc.. So yes the players who received the pass were under pressure but, that ent have nothing to do with the quality of ball they was getting from Yorke. Also many times I saw where they coulda just knock a simple ball back for Yorke, instead they hoof it aimlessly up the line.

All in all is shithounds de man was playing with. If we had take today's-game Yorke and slap him into the Man United midfield we all woulda be screaming about how composed de man look.. But when he lateral pass going to a Rob Wallace/McShane/Leadbitter who ent have the requisite skill to know what to do with it, what yuh expect..

Yorke ent Jesus, he cyah turn water into wine...

Omar, ah think yuh on like corn on dis one. Ah cya say nothing else dat you ent already say. and if we add Roy Keane interview, he too echos your sentiments.

Cheers.

Or what was Latapy doing at Porto?

All it is really is a midfielder playing a withdrawn role who responsibility is to make the simple passes on the offensive end... All them players I call there don't make big advances into the box, they control the game from a withdrawn midfield role.. Don't act like de man useless..

I saw the game. First all KJ played well. He was tightly marked by the two stoppers. But he held is own. They did not push him off the ball. It just that as soon as he had the ball, two and 3 men on him. He was by himself most of the time. At times he was able to get himself out of trouble with quick passes out to York, Chopra and the other African dude. But to be honest Sunderland needs much more to crack opposing defences. Too much air ball. 60% of the ball KJ got was in the air or with his back to the defence. How is going to score goals that way. They need better fire power coming from behind. A good creative mid who can bring the ball with confidence. But we know those players are already snapped by the richer clubs.

This is going to be the way Manu will be playing for the whole season. Every team that goes to Old Trafford will be ready for Man U. They will bring their A game. Man U will have to break down walled defences for the the whole season. Most teams will be on the defensive and then try to hit United on the counter attack. It will be interesting to see. The season is still young.

TT at least has options at the striker's position for the WC. KJ, Stern, Scotland, Sealey, Roberts. Not bad.

So tell me if the role Latapy was playing at Porto entailed tackling/enforcing and advancing into the PK box on a consistent basis..

If you go back and check my post I was never disputing creativity.. all i said was that a holding midfielder 1. does not need to be an enforcer/tackler and 2. does not make big advances in de pk box..  I cited Pirlo because he revolutionized the holding role at AC in that he controlled the midfield via positioning and passing, and yuh rarely ever see him pelting any tackles..

This game made me really see how important a play making midfielder is to a team. Sunderland has no one in the middle beside Yorke to really control the attack. As a result KJ looked lost or maybe he was either not match fit or just was ah waste of time or a bad signing.  KJ did not take advantage of his size against those Man-U defenders. He should have demanded that the ball be played to his feet more than in the air. Why every time he control or gained possession he played the ball backwards? I’m guessing it was his frist time on the big stage etc etc. I’ll keep my eyes on him. Hopefully he’ll do better next time.

 Alyuh talking about Latas??? Tha man is ah boss yes even in he old age…I’m now questioning Bennie decisions to bench that man at the WC games. He was ah boss before, during and after the WC. Bennie yuh geh ah low score on tha one. Word Up!

As you know i was there..Yorkie was outstanding and so was Jones in the air..his first touch was abit heavy but he gave Vida a hell of a time.. better things to come for sure..but not against our Serbian Steel..hell no

We were the better team 75% possesion...Sunderland huff and puff a lil but our quality was better.. we took our foot off the pedal after we scored as well

Now... thank you Aston Villa.. i love you now(untill we play u of course) lol

Arsenal and Liverpool... enjoy your tme at the top.. i expect the table to shift very soon..arsenal= inconsistent..liverpool=shite

We have our guns back for our next game(Rooney and Ronaldo) and our heart(Neville)

not sure what game you was watching but KJ was winning the aerial battles in the first half even though he was isolated up front... And is Ferdinand and Vidic he playing against..  I eh know bout you nuh but if it was my very first game of the whole season, first time playing with a new team, and i get throw in at the very deep end, if i could be such a handful for vidic/ferdinand, i would be elated with my performance..

Furthermore even his own boss Keane said he was happy with his contribution..

Omarldnho,
I really ent know what people want from some footballers eh

KJ did very well and as Keane said that Sunderland needed to do better to give more support up front.

The the debutants did very well. I would have liked us to get more support to Kenwyne Jones, but it's easier said than done when you are playing Man United at Old Trafford.

Yorkie played very well - all the players gave it their all and it's all you ask for.


It would have been nice to have more quality going forward.

Title: Manchester United In Long Huntelaar Queue
Post by: capodetutticapi on April 06, 2008, 08:48:54 AM
Manchester United have become the latest club to reveal their interest in Ajax’s striking sensation Klaas Jan Huntelaar, according to the News of the World.

Huntelaar, 24, is currently one of the hottest transfer targets in Europe, having already scored 30 goals this season and having been the top scorer in the Eredivise last season with a staggering 33 goals in 31 matches.

The paper claims that Huntelaar is planning talks with boss Marco van Basten as he seeks a move away from the Amsterdam club, with the fee thought to be in the region of £18 million.

Real Madrid had been thought to be the favourites to lure him away after coach Bernd Schuster revealed his interest in the Dutchman recently.

However there has been interest in the striker all over the continent with both Chelsea and Milan rumoured to be after the Dutchman, and Manchester United have also reactivated their interest.

Although United haven’t struggled for goals this season they have been a little short of strikers ever since Ruud van Nistelrooy was sold to Real Madrid in 2006.

Whilst Wayne Rooney is an automatic choice up front, his partner often isn’t and United have become heavily reliant on Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals this season.

Louis Saha has been injured far too frequently for manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s liking and whilst Carlos Tevez has proved a shrewd buy he isn’t the goal-getter that van Nistelrooy was, and Ferguson is now hoping Huntelaar will be.

Jai. Let me translate:

Go Sevilla = I want Sevilla to beat Villareal
Love Barca and Vilalreal in 2nd = I want Sevilla to beat Villareal, cuz Barca is my team and Villareal is currently in 2nd place. A win for Sevilla helps keep the distance between Barca and Villareal.

Not ignoring Villareal, and is not like I doh like them. If anything..I showing respect for their title credentials

We really missed Rooney today,

this CWC is perfect for Rooney and Tevez to get back intouch with each other, bring Berbatov off de bench to play de poacher role, its not working as we would like, how much more games does he need ? Ronaldo was poor to, his first touch and passing was all poor. we got a point and kept a clean sheet so i guess that was good. Defence played well, Rafael again showed where he is the starting RB, he just needs to work on timing his tackles.

Ronaldo playin this season like he mailin it in and half arse, he also playing like he always lookin for a reason to not finish a match. For me the team this year is lacking drive from the midfield, they miss Hargo. It would have been nice if Anderson could have won the job over Fletcher and play like he took the next step.

He needs to sit on the bench and watch a few games, let Nani play. Yeah we're missing Hargo but Scholsey is coming back to match fitness, thats a plus. i notice Ando doesnt play well with Carrick along side him and Fergie likes Carrick so thats why Fletch is starting.

I wish Fergurson would stop kissing his arse! I also sometimes get the feeling dey dos give him the impression he untouchable, no accountability for some of the antics he doing in the shirt. Some of the shit he does is an embarrassment to the shirt! Sickening!

Title: Southampton 0-3 Manchester United
Post by: capodetutticapi on January 04, 2009, 12:56:18 PM
Manchester United Coast Past Southampton
Manchester United coasted past Southampton in Sunday’s FA Cup Third Round tie at St Mary’s Stadium.

Danny Welbeck gave United the lead when he headed home from close-range (20) and it soon got worse for Southampton when Martin Paterson was sent off for a reckless challenge on Nemanja Vidic shortly before half-time.

Nani scored a controversial penalty (48) as the Red Devils assumed full control of the game and substitute Darron Gibson sealed the win with a powerful strike (81).

Team News

Olly Lancashire and Andrew Surman came in for Southampton as they made two changes from their drawn Championship clash against Reading.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson handed 18-year-old striker Danny Welbeck a start with Carlos Tevez, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo not included in the starting line-up. Rio Ferdinand was also ruled out.

First Half

After a quiet opening fifteen minutes, the first chances of the game arrived. It was the hosts who threatened first when David McGoldrick broke from midfield and fed Andrew Surman, who flashed the ball across the face of Manchester United’s goal to force Jonny Evans into a smart clearance.

Southampton were on the back foot moments later when Nani combined well with Dimitar Berbatov at the edge of the Saints penalty box and forced home goalkeeper Kelvin Davies into a low save. Anderson then forced Davies into another save with a vicious long-range effort.

From the resulting corner, United took the lead. Republic of Ireland defender John O’Shea met Nani’s flighted delivery at pace but was denied a headed goal by the goalkeeper, who superbly tipped his effort on to the crossbar. However, the rebound fell straight to Welbeck, the teenager there waiting to pounce from just two yards out and hand the visitors a lead.

Chris Perry then did well to block a Berbatov shot after the Bulgaria striker was slipped through on goal by O’Shea before the ex-Wimbledon man again came to the rescue to deny Michael Carrick with a goal-saving challenge.

With the visitors threatening to run riot, disaster struck for Southampton. As Nemanja Vidic attempted to control a bouncing ball at the halfway line, Saints striker Matthew Paterson lunged in with studs raised and caught the Serbian high on the shin, deservedly earning himself a red card from referee Mike Riley.

In first half stoppage time, Saints ’keeper Davies was again forced into action, doing well to save Welbeck’s near post effort after Gary Neville fed Nani on the right-hand side.

Second Half

At the start of the second half it looked like it would take a minor miracle if Southampton were to rescue this Cup-tie and just three minutes after the interval the game was as good as over.

Lancashire conceded a free-kick right on the edge of the area, which Nani stepped up to take. His effort struck McGoldrick, who had his hand raised in the wall, and Riley pointed to the penalty spot. The Saints were adamant it has hit his head and not the raised arm, with initial replays proving inconclusive.

The Portuguese winger calmly stepped up and slotted United into a two-goal lead, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way.

Moments later Welbeck was superbly denied by Davies from 12 yards out after a sharp turn. As United dominated, Welbeck had another penalty claim turned down in the 51st minute when he was sandwiched between two Southampton defenders, as he looked set to pull the trigger.

Ryan Smith offered the home side some brief respite when he breezed past O’Shea and Evans, but struck wide at the crucial moment, and Surman had a shot saved before Carrick came close to scoring the visitors’ third goal.

Wayne Rooney was brought on from the substitutes’ bench for a run out in place of Welbeck and almost made an instant impact, but could only drag his shot wide of the far post after combining with Berbatov.

United were able to put the icing on the cake ten minutes from time when Rooney surged past the Southampton defence and cut the ball back for Darron Gibson, enjoying oceans of space, to smash his shot home.

Southampton will now return to the rigours of the Championship, while United move on to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Fourth Round after a comprehensive win.

Fixture pile up adds to Fergie woes

http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/story/9135374/Fixture-pile-up-adds-to-Fergie-woes (http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/story/9135374/Fixture-pile-up-adds-to-Fergie-woes)

Manchester United's clash with Everton has been moved forward 48 hours to Saturday January 31 due to the Toffees' FA Cup replay with Liverpool.

Steven Gerrard's FA Cup derby leveller for Liverpool may have unwittingly handed Manchester United a problem.

United are without 12 senior players for Tuesday's Premier League trip to West Brom, leaving Sir Alex Ferguson to pick through his squad for a team of fit players.

Ferguson was hoping the situation might have eased in time United's next league game against Everton - with both Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown tipped to be available after long-standing back and ankle problems respectively and Park Ji-sung on the brink of a comeback from a minor hamstring complaint.

But the Old Trafford encounter with David Moyes' men will now be played 48 hours ahead of schedule - moving forward to Saturday January 31 from Monday February 2 to clear the way for Everton's FA Cup replay with Liverpool on February 4.

It robs Ferdinand, Brown and Park, or anyone else among United's walking wounded who might have had a chance of returning against the Toffees, of two extra days' preparation.

The late change is part of a confusing February fixture list for United.

Their remaining outstanding game against Fulham - originally postponed in August because of the Red Devils' presence in the European Super Cup - has been pencilled in for February 17. But that will be dependent on neither side requiring a fifth-round replay.

In addition, the Red Devils' home match against Portsmouth on February 28 has been postponed because of their appearance in the Carling Cup final the following day.

West Brom vs Utd preview

West Brom and Manchester United are both suffering from an injury crisis ahead of their Premier League clash at The Hawthorns on Tuesday.

Sir Alex Ferguson's men can go three points clear of Liverpool in second place if they secure maximum points against the Baggies.

While bottom of the table West Brom know that three points can take them as high as 13th such is the tight nature of the Premier League table.

Both managers will have to shuffle their squad for the match with Tony Mowbray particularly struggling in the centre-back department.
Baggies team news

Captain Jonathan Greening has been ruled out for six weeks after a scan revealed he had strained medial knee ligaments in the FA Cup draw against Burnley.

The midfielder is not expected to be fit until mid-March.

The 30-year-old joins defenders Shelton Martis (hamstring), Neil Clement (knee), Ryan Donk (groin), Leon Barnett (hamstring), Jonas Olsson (knee) and Abdoulaye Meite (hamstring) on the sidelines.

Despite Donk limping off against Burnley on Saturday, Mowbray may rush the centre-half back due to a lack of cover in that area.

The hosts will also be without midfielder James Morrison (hamstring), strikers Luke Moore (hamstring) and Craig Beattie, who picked up a knock against the Clarets, and long term casualty Ishmael Miller (knee).

One positive for the Baggies boss on Saturday was the return of Gianni Zuiverloon after a month out with a knee injury.

The defender came through unscathed after coming off the bench and could start against United.

United team news

The champions have an injury list to match their opponents as they look to continue their run of ten successive league games without conceding a goal.

The record is all the more impressive will the amount of injuries they have had to cope with to their backline.

Patrice Evra (ankle), Rio Ferdinand (back), Wes Brown (ankle), Jonny Evans (ankle), Fabio (calf) and Rafael (groin) have all spent time on the sidelines recently and all are set to miss the game.

Meanwhile midfielders Anderson (ankle), Nani (groin) and Ji-Sung Park (ankle) join long-term absentee Owen Hargreaves (knee) in the treatment room.

United will also be without strikers Wayne Rooney (hamstring) and Danny Wellbeck (ankle) but still have a strong forward line available with Cristiano Ronaldo, Dimitar Berbatov and Carlos Tevez all expected to start.

Goalkeeper Ben Foster, who has played in the last two games against Derby and Tottenham, is likely to step down in place of Edwin Van der Sar.

Zoran Tosic could make his first start in a United shirt after coming off the bench against Spurs on Saturday.

Ferguson may be forced to field the 21-year-old as Wellbeck, who started on the wing in Saturday's FA Cup win has been ruled out, leaving the Scot with just Ronaldo as a recognisable winger.

Possible starting XI's

West Brom: Carson, Robinson, Zuiverloon, Donk, Hoefkens, Koren, Teixeira, Do-Heon Kim, Valero, Bednar, Simpson.

Man Utd: Van der Sar, Eckersley, Neville, Vidic, O'Shea, Ronaldo, Carrick, Fletcher, Tosic, Tevez, Berbatov.

PREDICTIONS
Skysports.com prediction: West Brom 0 Man Utd 2
Sky Bet odds: West Brom 9/1 Draw 7/2 Man Utd 4/11
One to watch: Zoran Tosic

Champions League - Vidic banned for Inter match
Eurosport - Fri, 30 Jan 16:35:00 2009

Nemanja Vidic will miss the first leg of Manchester United's Champions League tie with Internazionale after being suspended for one match following his red card in the Club World Cup final.

(http://d.yimg.com/i//ng/sp/eurosport/20090130/25/c0ee5a855b8345c81083a489441889ba.jpg)

Vidic was dismissed for swinging an elbow into the face of LDU Quito's Claudio Bieler in Yokohama on December 21.

The Serbia star was facing the possibility of a three-game suspension but a FIFA disciplinary panel on Friday confirmed a one-match ban.

that i could agree with you on, i find that is mess for a card from an unrelated tournament to be carried over to champs league.

but rules is rules, and if you look around you would be hard pressed to find a player given a straight red for violent conduct and only given a 1 game ban. 1 game ban is normally for 2 yellow card sending off only.

You and all know that.

yea but maybe because all the fuss about the card carrying over allowed only a 1 game...which is fair if he is gonna miss a CL game

if he had got in a CL game then it would have been an automatic 3 game ban

Only after dude could not get the ball he hit the ground and Loopy dog ref run over and bail him out with the call.

Look one of your players just pull back Pinear with 2 hands and because he shot the ball the ref eh give a free kick, but you got a PK.

This is a HUGE result for United.

Firstly this is a team that Liverpool play twice in th elast two weeks and couldn't beat them. The 5 point difference now puts extra pressure on Liverppol and CHelsea tomorrow. Whichever side does not win will feel like the title is over.

It is also a good comeuppance for Wenger who was complaining some weeks ago about UNited having a 6 day brealk between the WBA game and the Everton game , which was supposed to be on Monday. Well Wenger get his wish. United play on Saturday and win.

Arsenal play and couldn't even beat West Ham. 10 points off, played a game more, needing 54 teams to collapse...Arsenal's title hopes are over. If they didn't know, now they know.

Yes, especially when Lescott get pull down on the set play (hand all over the shoulder pulling to the ground) and no call to give that call shows inconsistent whistling, thus leading to doubts about professionalism.

Who cares.

I just realize that both Arsenal and Chellsea draw with Everton as well in recent weeks.

So I guess I should ask how Chelsea going to deal with the Italians

Manchester United's Danny Welbeck Handed England Call-Up
The man who is eligible to play for three nations seems to be wanted by the Three Lions...
Manchester United hot prospect Danny Welbeck has been handed his first call-up to England colours today, as Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce has named him in his squad for the forthcoming fixture with Ecuador.

Welbeck, who also qualifies for Ghana and Scotland through his parents, has previously played for England Under-19s. Only a cap awarded in a senior fixture would tie his international future to the Three Lions, but his inclusion in Pearce's squad would seem to edge him closer to committing that future to a white shirt.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, himself a proud Scotsman, would reportedly prefer the colour of that shirt to be dark blue, but looks set to be disappointed, as do those Ghanaians who were hopeful of Welbeck declaring for their nation.

"As we saw from the last Championship, there are players who come with a late run to get into the squad," Pearce is reported by The Manchester Evening News as saying.

"In this squad, we are having a look at Danny Welbeck who has done well in the U19s and broken into the team at Old Trafford which is no mean feat."

Welbeck has impressed many observers this season with his confident and mature performances for the Red Devils, and is another sign that the Old Trafford player production line is in full working order.

Carlos Tevez Offered New Manchester United Deal - Report
Despite earlier reports emanating from Italy that suggested a Serie A giant was waiting to pounce, it looks as though the Argentinean will remain a Red Devil...
Manchester United are set to secure the future of their Argentinean striker Carlos Tevez, reports in England indicate today.

Earlier, there had been suggestions from Italy that Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan was waiting to snare the player. However, after a meeting between United manager Alex Ferguson and Tevez's representative, Kia Joorabchian, following the weekend's victory over Everton, it now looks likely that the Argentine international will be staying in England, according to The Daily Mirror.

Ferguson has seemingly been highly impressed with the way in which Tevez has responded so positively to being left out of the side earlier in the season, with the striker being recalled to the first-team after Wayne Rooney was injured last month.

Tevez had reportedly felt marginalised after the Red Devils signed Dimitar Berbatov in the summer but, rather than sulking about things, he has rolled his sleeves up and performed magnificently whenever called upon by Ferguson.

It is believed that the deal will be worth £30 million, but how that breaks down with the complicated issue of Tevez's 'third-party' registration is impossible to say at this stage.

The player himself, already reputed to be on £75,000 a week, will be offered a contract that will see him take home £11.7m during the three year duration of the deal. Perhaps a good job then that United also announced pre-tax profits of £59.6m this week.

R.I.P Busby Babes...We will never Forget
(http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e7/ruud1000/munich-8026.jpg)


United's flag is deepest red,
It shrouded all our Munich dead,
Before their limbs grew stiff and cold,
Their heart's blood dyed it's every fold.

Then raise United's banner high,
Beneath it's shade we'll live and die,
So keep the faith and never fear,
We'll keep the Red Flag flying here.

We'll never die, we'll never die,
We'll never die, we'll never die,
We'll keep the Red flag flying high,
'Cos Man United will never die

THE FLOWERS OF MANCHESTER !!!

One cold and bitter Thursday in Munich, Germany,
Eight great football stalwarts conceded victory,
Eight men will never play again who met destruction there,
The flowers of English football, the flowers of Manchester

Matt Busby's boys were flying, returning from Belgrade,
This great United family, all masters of their trade,
The pilot of the aircraft, the skipper Captain Thain,
Three times they tried to take off and twice turned back again.

The third time down the runaway disaster followed close,
There was slush upon that runaway and the aircraft never rose,
It ploughed into the marshy ground, it broke, it overturned.
And eight of the team were killed as the blazing wreckage burned.

Roger Byrne and Tommy Taylor who were capped for England's side.
And Ireland's Billy Whelan and England's Geoff Bent died,
Mark Jones and Eddie Colman, and David Pegg also,
They all lost their lives as it ploughed on through the snow.

Big Duncan he went too, with an injury to his brain,
And Ireland's brave Jack Blanchflower will never play again,
The great Matt Busby lay there, the father of his team
Three long months passed by before he saw his team again.

The trainer, coach and secretary, and a member of the crew,
Also eight sporting journalists who with United flew,
and one of them Big Swifty, who we will ne'er forget,
the finest English 'keeper that ever graced the net.

Oh, England's finest football team its record truly great,
its proud successes mocked by a cruel turn of fate.
Eight men will never play again, who met destruction there,
the flowers of English football, the flowers of Manchester.

United player Tevez's car seized

Carlos Tevez was stopped by police on the M60 motorway

Manchester United soccer star Carlos Tevez has had his £140,000 Bentley seized because he does not have a full UK driving licence, police said.

The 25-year-old Argentina international was stopped by traffic officers on the M60 near Stretford, Greater Manchester. His car has been impounded.

Police said they pulled his car over, suspecting the tinting on its windows was too dark.

Tests at the roadside showed the tint was illegal, police said.

"Shortly after 0920 GMT on Friday officers pulled over a Bentley close to junction 7 of the M60," said a police spokesman.

"The officers were concerned certain windows were illegally tinted. They were tested and found to be too dark so a prohibition notice was issued to the driver.

"When asked to provide his documentation, it was discovered the driver did not have a full UK driving licence and was advised to arrange removal of the car.

"As he could not arrange this, the car was removed under Section 165 of Road Traffic Act 1988."

I agree... lovely, lovely football.  Nice crisp short passes... almost a continental take on Wenger's short-passing game... but adapted to the English tastes, with enough long ball up top to Carlton Cole.  Cole is the quintessential lone striker, plays incredibly well with his back to goal and strong like an Ox... and oh yeah, cyah dribble to save he life... juss pure power and pace, lol.

But prospects for the Hammers look good.  Imagine if Bellamy was still with that side.  Dat yute need to settle down and get in somewhere.

Sir Alex Ferguson Reacts To Manchester United's FA Cup Quarter-Final DrawFergie has given his thoughts on his side's win over Derby and their potential last eight opponents.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted a trip to face either Fulham or Swansea City in the FA Cup Quarter-Finals will be a difficult tie.

The Red Devils defeated Derby County 4-1 at Pride Park this afternoon with Nani, Darron Gibson, Cristiano Ronaldo and Danny Welbeck scoring to send them through to the last eight.

And now a trip to either Craven Cottage or the Liberty Stadium in Wales awaits Fergie’s men in the last eight, and the Scot understands it will not be easy.

“Well, you always say ideally in the Cup that you will take a home tie, so it’s not ideal” Ferguson said to ITV Sport after the draw was made.

”I watched Swansea on Saturday against Fulham and they played very very well – an extremely impressive performance.

“I don’t think that tie is finished, but either way, whoever we get, we are just one step away from the semi-finals so it is a big incentive to our players.

“Hopefully the form stays the way it is at the moment, which has been very good.”

Ferguson then moved to praise his club’s squad depth, which he feels has helped to carry them through what has been a difficult run of fixtures.

“We’ve been saying for a number of weeks now that when we’ve had injuries it has been our squad depth that has carried us through and getting us past all those difficult games – something that was proved again today.

“With the game on Wednesday [against Fulham in the Premier League] in mind I made a few changes and they all did very well.”

The United manager concluded by giving his verdict on Ronaldo’s controversially disallowed ‘goal’, where the Portuguese winger scored and was in the process of celebrating as a late offside flag appeared, with the score at only 1-0.

“I got an explanation, whether that works or not I’m not so sure,” he laughed.

I doubt Rooney playing this game after Tevez and Berbatov get good rest on Saturday.

This is a big game for United but I could see a draw. Fulham is a hard to beat side and United on a long winning streak. Fulham get points from Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea dn Villa this year and they will be looking to play spoiler.

As much as I would like to see Fulham get blow-out, that plus the fact that the streak must end sometime making me feel that this is the game where some points might drop.

We'll see.

Why is Fergie ahead of Liverpool?

Last updated at 7:58 AM on 18th February 2009

 Sometimes the best explanations are the simplest ones. Princess Diana died because her driver was drunk and going too fast. The Twin Towers were hit by Islamic terrorists, not CIA agents. The continued success of Simon Cowell and the Osbourne family is, indeed, one of the harbingers of the apocalypse.

To this list, we can add the reason Manchester United will, in all likelihood, move five points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table by beating Fulham tonight.

They have a better team.
Now this may come as a surprise to those still looking for clues to account for the change in the balance of power this season. In recent months, many otherwise rational people have become convinced that Liverpool have frittered away supremacy in the title race based on a combination of rogue and random factors.

 Shouted down: Rafael Benitez's press conference rant didn't help his side - but it isn't the reason Liverpool lie second in the table.
Mind games played by Sir Alex Ferguson, the fractious contract negotiations of Rafael Benitez, boardroom unrest at Anfield or any number of peripheral events are believed to have inspired Manchester United to claw away at Liverpool's lead. This is good news for analysts, commentators and headline-writers, who have had, as The Flintstones theme tune puts it, a gay old time.

Without wishing to spoil the fun, however, it is more straightforward than that. Take the best Manchester United XI and the best Liverpool XI and put them together: how many of Benitez's team would get into Ferguson's? Not many. And that is why the championship is again heading for Old Trafford.

By my reckoning, maximum four, minimum two. Split the difference, call it three. Whichever way, there is nothing here to suggest that Liverpool can get the better of Manchester United this season, or next, without substantial upgrading in the summer.

Using it, Liverpool would be placed above Chelsea, although not by a huge distance. Manchester United, by contrast, would dominate Chelsea with just one player (Frank Lampard) or a generous three (Lampard plus Jose Bosingwa and Ashley Cole) getting into Ferguson's current team.

Assessment is made on form this season, not reputation. So while there may have been a time when Jose Reina, Liverpool's goalkeeper, would have shaded it from Edwin van der Sar, in goal for Manchester United, it is not right now when the Dutchman has beaten a long-standing British record for minutes without conceding a league goal, and is closing in on the 1,390- minute European record set by Dany Verlinden of Club Brugge in Belgium in 1990.

Javier Mascherano is another who would have walked into the holding midfield role at any club last season, but he has been a disappointment this year, perhaps as a result of his exertions for Argentina during the Olympics.

That leaves Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard as the two Liverpool players who would definitely be accommodated in the Manchester United team while, on a good day, one of Xabi Alonso or Mascherano could make the defensive midfield and an out-of-position Jamie Carragher would contend at full back.
 Tag team: Gerrard and Torres are the only Liverpool players who would definitely win a place in Ferguson's line-up.
Benitez's penchant for drama has drawn understandably negative comment as Liverpool's grip on the prize has weakened, but he cannot be held solely responsible. His squad deficiencies are being exposed just as Manchester United's strength in depth is at its most apparent.

Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager, had it right. Asked about the mind games that famously denied Newcastle United the title in 1996, he replied that Newcastle's defence, not Kevin Keegan's outburst on Sky TV, determined the final placings. Logical explanations get you nowhere in the pantomime that is the Premier League, though, so instead we waste valuable time analysing pronouncements from Old Trafford, and their effect, at the expense of crediting what is arguably the finest squad of footballers assembled by an English club.

There has never been a group like the one at Manchester United. Gary Neville versus Wes Brown versus Rafael da Silva, and that is just for the right back spot. Wayne Rooney versus Dimitar Berbatov versus Carlos Tevez versus Cristiano Ronaldo. Yet we ignore this and become distracted by Rafa's rant.

There are similarities with the collapse of England's cricket team in Jamaica two weeks ago, in that several small factors might have made an impact on the cohesion of the team, but none were actually in the middle with bat in hand.

So Benitez does not get on with Rick Parry, the chief executive? Big deal.

Jimmy Greaves, in wonderfully flippant mode, summed up the inconsequence of departmental relationships on the dressing room, by recalling his time at Tottenham Hotspur. 'Most of us didn't like Bill Nicholson, and Bill Nicholson didn't like us,' he said. 'In fact, the only thing we all agreed on was that we couldn't stand the board of directors.'

Benitez's distance from Parry and George Gillett, one half of the partnership of American owners, may be a problem for the long-term stability of the club and could be very damaging in the summer if he leaves, but it should not be, here and now, an issue for the playing staff. Nor should Benitez's feelings about Ferguson's influence on English football have an effect.

That press conference tirade is often cited as explanation for Liverpool's reversal of fortune, but what would the fall-out be anyway? That Liverpool players rally around Benitez in the desire to stick one up United? They seem to have had that motivation for some while, judging by Mascherano's furious display at Old Trafford last season.

The idea that Benitez's claims put pressure on his players is also ridiculous; as if there were previously no pressure on a Liverpool team with an opportunity to win its first title in the modern era. Had Benitez taken a vow of silence until the end of the season, the tension at Anfield would still be oppressively thick.

The reality is that Liverpool are going up against a colossal group of players at United and no team, not even the lavishly-assembled Chelsea, can live with them right now. They have a unique multiplicity, so even the understudies of understudies would get into many good teams (as Mikael Silvestre did at Arsenal this season).

It is in many ways the perfect squad, because it also provides for the future in players such as Ben Foster, the reserve goalkeeper, and Jonny Evans, who has fitted in magnificently at centre half in the absence of Rio Ferdinand this season.

It is a sign of United's power that they could play an unconventional central midfield of Ryan Giggs and Darren Fletcher against Chelsea and still win comfortably. On another day it might be Michael Carrick and Anderson or Paul Scholes. If Benitez had United's squad he could rant at or fall out with who he liked: he would still win the league, as United almost certainly will.

Now combine the two teams, starting at the back. Both have good keepers, but there can be no argument that a man who has gone 1,212 minutes without conceding a league goal is among the players of the season. Van der Sar, therefore, gets the nod over Reina. He has been on a roll since emerging victorious from the penalty shoot-out at the Champions League final last season.

 In control: Expect Fergie to be smiling again come May.
United have three strong right backs and the only alternative would be to overlook them all for Carragher, Benitez's defensive rock, out of position in a role he has occupied in key matches in Europe. This would be appealing because, to put it bluntly, he is not getting into this team at centre half.

Those positions are reserved for Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, an early contender for Footballer of the Year. Ferdinand's appearances through the season have been restricted by injury, but Vidic has been a constant and as a partnership they have now surpassed John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho of Chelsea.

At left back, United's Patrice Evra is the best in the country at the moment, ahead of Ashley Cole, of Chelsea.

Midfield brings another Manchester United landslide with Gerrard the only Liverpool player in a four that would comprise Ronaldo, Fletcher and Giggs. Torres would be the goalscoring spearhead, but his partner would be Rooney. Final total: Manchester United 8, Liverpool 3. And one of Liverpool's three gets in with a shoe-horn.

Despite the excellent job done by Roy Hodgson, Manchester United should beat Fulham tonight and, at that moment, a daunting lead will open up. Liverpool still have to go to Old Trafford, so the battle is not over, but the biggest shock of the season would be if United threw it away from here.

If that were the case, there genuinely would be need for an investigation - into whether Ronaldo's heart was still in Manchester, whether Berbatov's arrival had unsettled the team, if Ferguson was correct in his treatment of Tevez.

Were Manchester United to blow it, we would all be looking behind the story for clues. It is easier to work out what has gone wrong at Liverpool, though: the answer is right there, on the teamsheet.

Carlos Tevez's future at Manchester United has been thrown into fresh doubt after the striker's representative Kia Joorabchian declared he is ''studying other options''.

GettyImages

The striker is not an automatic first-choice.

Tevez has been on loan at Old Trafford for nearly two years but with the deal expiring at the end of the season and United have failed to take up their option to sign the striker on a permanent basis.

"Carlos is in the market now that United have not made any move for him," Joorabchian told the Daily Star.

"We are now studying other options and interested parties. There is no option left with United any longer."

United missed the chance to seal a deal for Tevez in January, despite the Argentina international's repeated claims that he would be happy to stay in the Premier League and speculation has continued due to the fact he has only started 13 games this season.

Argentina boss Diego Maradona has urged Tevez to join Serie A leaders Inter Milan, who have been linked with a £30m bid (along with Real Madrid) in the summer, but Joorabchian's confirmation that the player's third-party owners are weighing up interest from other clubs suggests they will not be the only ones interested.

Tevez himself has said recently that he would have to wait until June to discover where he would be playing his football next season, claiming: "My mind is pointing me towards United and my plan is to stay here for several years more. I've already talked to the club and now we'll have to wait and see what happens in June.

"We talked but I've signed nothing yet. I want to stay. It would be difficult for me to quit one of the biggest clubs in the world."

It'll be tough to see him leave but 32 million pounds is alot of money for a player who will most likely be on the bench due to Berba's class and Rooney's Spirit and Quality

I hope he could stay but Benzema and David Villa are available so

United on the brink of history(FIFA.com) Friday 20 February 2009

As the Manchester United players stepped off the plane, looking tired and bleary eyed after returning home from Japan with the FIFA Club World Cup trophy, they could hardly have believed what they would go on to achieve. Since the Red Devils suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal on 8 November 2008, Sir Alex Ferguson’s men have gone on a run of 14 games and 1,302 minutes without conceding a single Premier League goal.

The last time United’s defence was breached by Samir Nasri, USA had a different president, Hull were fourth in the table and the world was yet to feel the full effect of the global credit crunch. But despite all these changes, there has been one constant - the man between the posts. At 38, Dutchman Edwin Van der Sar is now just 89 minutes away from eclipsing the European record for consecutive clean sheets, set by FC Bruges stopper Dany Verlinden in 1990.

Standing in the way of van der Sar and United’s record breaking achievement are the rejuvenated Blackburn Rovers, with only one defeat in their last 11 games under new manager Sam Allardyce. However, despite Rovers' impressive recent run they still sit third from bottom, deep in the relegation dog-fight and will be hoping that either Norwegian winger Morten Gamst Pedersen, or strikers Benni McCarthy and Roque Santa Cruz can upset the United rearguard.


I see the clean sheets simply as a tremendous reflection on the quality of Edwin van der Sar’s goalkeeping, and the excellence of the men at the back.
Sir Alex Ferguson on United's defensive record.


Sir Alex Ferguson has produced several great sides during his 23 years in charge at Old Trafford and believes that his goalkeeper and back four are the best he has seen. “I see the clean sheets simply as a tremendous reflection on the quality of Edwin van der Sar’s goalkeeping, and the excellence of the men at the back. They have been out of this world, and I was delighted when they chalked up 14 consecutive league games without conceding a goal to set a British record, and they have a great chance of achieving a world record.”

The run of shut-outs that the world champions have gone on is made even more remarkable when you consider that their linchpin, England regular Rio Ferdinand, has missed ten of those games with a back injury. A lot of the credit has to be awarded to Nemanja Vidic, who has been touted as a possible Player of the Year in England. Many people raised a few eyebrows when the relative unknown was signed from Spartak Moscow for £7 million in January 2006, but the centre-back has been an outstanding performer since his arrival, receiving rave reviews for his aggressive, no-nonsense style and his ability to score vital goals, none more so than the last minute winner against Sunderland this season.


The Red Devils seem to be getting better and better as each game passes and Ferguson believes the the team can achieve even more success. "We may not win every game between now and May, but that will be our aim. There is also a mental toughness in the team these days that will stand us in good stead as the pressure builds. This group of players has been together for a couple of seasons, and they have developed strong bonds. This has fostered the type of stability needed for success, and I think we are going to take some beating.”

ALEX FERGUSON would love to send on Fabio Da Silva as a half-time sub for his identical twin Rafael — without notifying the referee.

The Manchester United boss said: “We have two great Brazilian defenders in Fabio and Rafael and it’s impossible to distinguish who is who.


“My dream would be to start one and replace him with the other without anyone noticing. They are extraordinary, they really adore football."

Up four it: Old Trafford star Wayne Rooney confident Manchester United can claim the quadruple this season

By Sportsmail Reporter Last updated at 11:48 AM on 28th February 2009
 
Wayne Rooney believes Manchester United can win the quadruple as they are stronger than last season when they won the Champions League and Premier League double.

United face Tottenham in the Carling Cup final tomorrow in their first chance of domestic silverware before they attempt to clinch the Barclays Premier League and Champions League titles as well as the FA Cup.

The Old Trafford club have already won the FIFA Club World Cup and the 23-year-old believes they can claim the four trophies available to them.

(http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/02/28/article-1157924-039C2EB3000005DC-740_468x346.jpg)
Up four it: Wayne Rooney is confident Manchester United can record an incredible quadruple sweep this season as they continue to go from strength to strength

'I hope the quadruple is possible,' Rooney told The Sun.

'We have a great chance in the Carling Cup, we're in a good position in the league, the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and have a good chance of reaching the same stage in the Champions League.

'It will be hard work to win them all but we are positive and that's what we're aiming to do.

'We are stronger than last season when we won the double.

 (http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/02/28/article-1157924-040A8AEB0000044D-695_306x423.jpg)
Wayne's world: Rooney celebrates his first trophy win with United in the Carling Cup over Wigan in 2006 when he also celebrated the man-of-the-match prize

'And winning the Champions League has given us an added confidence and belief which has brought us on.'

'Rooney also revealed that lifting the trophy at Wembley tomorrow would fulfil a childhood dream.

'I still remember going to the old Wembley as a kid to watch Everton beat United in the FA Cup final,' he continued.

'It was an amazing occasion and something that has always stuck in my mind. To play in a major final is still a dream come true for me.

'The Carling Cup was the first trophy I won with United, in Cardiff, and something I want to win again badly.

'The fact it is at such an amazing place like Wembley now obviously makes it more special.'

Preview:
Tottenham will be looking to put an end to Manchester United's hopes of a quintuple when the two sides meet in the Carling Cup final on Sunday.

Holders Spurs will not want to give up their crown without a fight and will fancy their chances after United boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed that he would be sticking with his youngsters who have got him this far.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has seemingly traded Uefa Cup glory for a win on Sunday after he rested all of his big guns for the last-32 tie against Shakhtar Donetsk on Thursday.

If the gamble fails to pay off and United succeed in the first part of their record-breaking conquest Redknapp can expect a backlash from the Spurs supporters.
United team news

First choice goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has not featured in the competition this season so Ferguson must decide between Ben Foster and Tomasz Kuszczak.

The pair have made two Carling Cup appearances each this season but the Englishman could get the nod after Kuszczak's erratic display against Blackburn last weekend.

Defender Jonny Evans is rated as 50/50 after he needed pain killing injections to get through Tuesday's draw with Inter.

The Northern Ireland international has been suffering with an ankle injury that dates back to his time on loan at Sunderland at the end of last season.

If the 21-year-old does not make it Ferguson will look to start regular centre-back pairing of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.

Fellow defender Gary Neville has returned to training during the past week and he could be involved but Wes Brown (metatarsal) is out.

Midfielder Anderson could make a return to first-team action after picking up an ankle injury in the semi-final second-leg win over Derby in January.

The Brazilian played 45 minutes of United's reserve team clash with Manchester City on Thursday and will compete with Darren Fletcher, Michael Carrick and Darren Gibson for a midfield berth.

Fellow Brazilian Fabio played in the same match and was also withdrawn early in the second half, hinting that he could replace twin brother Rafael who has been ruled out for a month with an ankle injury.

Carlos Tevez should start up front after playing in all of the club's games in the competition this season with either Wayne Rooney or Danny Wellbeck partnering him.

Spurs team news

Huerelho Gomes will start in goal with fellow stopper Carlo Cudicini ineligible.

Redknapp rested Jonathan Woodgate, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Vedran Corluka, Ledley King, Jermaine Jenas, Luka Modric, Darren Bent, Aaron Lennon and Roman Pavlyuchenko for the Shakhtar match and all can expect to be involved on Sunday.

Skipper King featured in Monday's win at Hull and despite not being able to play two games a week is expected to start for the final.

If the 28-year-old fails to recover in time Michael Dawson should step in after he too was rested for Thursday's draw.

The former Portsmouth manager is expected to field a five -midfield so either Bent or Pavlyuchenko will miss out.

With the Russian scoring in every round so far he is favourite to play as the lone striker with Bent settling for a place on the bench.

Redknapp will also wait to assess midfielder Jamie O'Hara's hip injury before deciding on his final eleven.

Strikers Robbie Keane (ineligible) and Jermaine Defoe (foot) are out as are Pascal Chimbonda and Wilson Palacios who are both ineligible.

Possible starting XIs:

Man Utd: Foster, Fabio, Evans, Vidic, O'Shea, Nani, Gibson, Scholes, Ronaldo, Rooney, Tevez.

Tottenham: Gomes, Corluka, King, Woodgate, Assou-Ekotto, Bentley, Zokora, Jenas, Lennon, Modric, Pavlyuchenko

Who is the best goalkeeper?
27 February 2009, 16:47
Manchester United FC's Edwin van der Sar has broken English league, Premier League and British league records by keeping 14 successive clean sheets in the top flight, a sequence which is still ongoing. The Dutchman has also taken that form on to the European stage, having yet to concede a goal in this season's UEFA Champions League, but who do you think is the best keeper left in the competition?

Deadly Dutchman
Van der Sar maintained his unbeatable veneer this week when he kept FC Internazionale Milano at bay in the first knockout round first leg to make it four shutouts from as many UEFA Champions League appearances this term. However, there are plenty of rivals to the 38-year-old United custodian. Internazionale's Júlio César was at his very best to deny United, and Cristiano Ronaldo in particular, at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Tuesday, while on the same evening, Arsenal FC's Manuel Almunia produced a magnificent save to divert Marco Motta's stinging shot wide as AS Roma threatened an early lead in London.

Classy competition
On Wednesday, three more goalkeepers, Petr Čech (Chelsea FC), Michael Rensing (FC Bayern München) and Pepe Reina (Liverpool FC), posted clean sheets. Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus), meanwhile, shipped his first goal of the European campaign, and although he made only one outing during the group stage, the Italian's class is unquestionable. Who do you think has shown the best form so far? Click below to have your say.

Redknapp backs United cleansweep(AFP) Sunday 1 March 2009

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is backing Manchester United to finish this season with an unprecedented haul of five trophies. "They have got a big chance. They are the team to beat for sure," Redknapp said after a goalless League Cup final was resolved by United beating his side 4-1 in the penalty shoot-out.

"They have a fantastic squad. They have one cup already, it looks as if the league is going their way for sure and you wouldn't bet against them in the UEFA Champions League and the FA Cup," Redknapp said.

In addition to the trophy they collected today, United also won the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2008™, but their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, continues to play down the chances of his side retaining their UEFA Champions League and Premier League trophies while going on to win the FA Cup.

"I'm not going to get carried away with it," Ferguson said. "Only you guys, the media, will. We will keep our feet on the ground. My experience is we could go to Fulham this weekend in the FA Cup and the ball comes off somebody's backside and we are out of the cup. That is what cups can do to you."

Ferguson acknowledged that Tottenham might easily have won today's match before the shoot-out but for the heroics of Ben Foster, who made two crucial saves in open play before stopping Jamie O'Hara's opening spot-kick for Spurs.

"It was not an easy day for us," Ferguson said. "We have played better this season, but cup finals are not easy. Tottenham were good opponents and they probably had the better chances in the match, but Ben has made a few good saves for us."

Ferguson said Foster's performance was another sign that, as well as being the natural successor to Edwin van der Sar at United, he could go on to be England's number one for a long time. "The future is his," Ferguson said. "The present belongs to Van der Sar, that is obvious, but that performance can only strengthen my opinion of his ability and his own self-confidence.

"He is a strong character. He has had to be," Ferguson added. "He has had to come through two cruciate ligament injuries and you have to have something inside you to do that."


The lads were terrific, we just could not get that break. I thought we were going to win it in the last minute. 
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp


Despite his admiration for United, Redknapp was delighted with his team's performance, and felt they had the edge in the contest. "The lads were terrific, we just could not get that break," he said. "I thought we were going to win it in the last minute [when Darren Bent drew a good save from Foster]."

Spurs' fate was sealed after O'Hara had their first penalty saved by Foster and David Bentley steered the third spot-kick wide. O'Hara was left in tears, but Redknapp offered consolation.

"Jamie was the first to volunteer to take one. Unfortunately the goalkeeper has made a good save, but he is okay. I'm just pleased I got him on today. He left in tears last year when he did not get in the squad for the final last year. He feels for the club and he is a terrific lad."

Very good win.

I really happy to see that United taking the League Cup seriously despite the fact that they involved in the bigger competitions. This is a competition that Ferguson paid absolutely no attention to during the 90's.

With that said I think it way too early to start contamplating 4 trophies (I don't really rate the World Championship, it is a more significant title than the Charity Shield and Super Cup, but not by much).

To be completely honest just winning the League and FA Cup to complete a first domestic treble would be a dream. United lost their last 2 FA cup finals and haven't won th ecompetition for 5 years now. i really want to see them win it again but even that will be hard with Chelsea and Arsenal still in the running.

Don't talk for the CL. Not even thinking about that yet becuase it have too many games to play and oo many good teams still in it to be seriously thinking about the possibilities. The League Cup in the bag, League looking like a good prospect and the quarter final FA Cup draw is promising, still in the CL league. Leh we see what happens.

how you could say they now taking the league cup seriously??

funny i remember the year Chelsea take everything, I remember Man Utd celebrate that Carling Cup like they won the World Cup.

Mark my words, Man Utd not winning no Champions league and I would bet against them taking the FA cup.

Allyuh getting on like this side playing ball, but they only benefiting from the mess that is Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool this season. Every game I see they have not looked as good as their record suggests.

They were a much better team last season.

Allyuh getting on like this side playing ball, but they only benefiting from the mess that is Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool this season. Every game I see they have not looked as good as their record suggests.

They were a much better team last season.

First thing. I never said that they taking it seriously this year only. I made the reference to the 90's as the time when they were not taking it sreriously. Winning the League Cup against Wigan in 2006 was critical to United getting back in winning ways after going 2 seasons with nothing. And let's be honest United win this trophy without REALLY putting out their best team in every round. They did the same thing last year and the year before and lost to lower division teams. The difference is that this year the squad is more expereineced and there are some very good youths coming through.

As for United this year vs last year. That will always be debatable. I don't think that you could make a case for them being much worse this year becuase Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea are worse. They are picking up similar points in the League a to last year and they are getiing similar results in the Champions League so they can't be as bad as you say.  If you watch the way the team is playing it is a different brand. Less dependent on the pace of Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez. A lot more measured around the box with plenty of the play being funneled through Berbatov. This team keeps possession a lot better.

The squad is also working out much better than last year. Ferguson has done a good job of keeping the team fresh without affecting performances. There is also a lot more confidence in the play and you see more of the players willing to try something different whereas last year that was reserved for Rooney, Ronaldo and Giggs and Scholes when they on form. The same players that allyuh wouldn't want anywhere near allyuh big squad like Fletcher and O'Shea are the players that are getting it done.

As for what will be won. I am the first to admit that winning anything is difficult and the FA Cup and CL are just possibilities right now. You obviously know something that I don't know to predict what they can't win. Tell me what Chelsea winning while yuh looking in yuh crystal ball nah?

At least United win something, Chelsea couldn't even beat shitty Burnley in the Carling, Last year they couldn't beat Barnsley. Chelsea is a damn comedy club. If the season end tomorrow and neither club win another trophy it is pure salt for Chelsea. AGAIN.

I think United's style of play is nicer to look at this season than it was last season...Last season it was very centered around getting CR isloated out wide and using him as a spark to create energy, space & movement.  This year to me they work the ball around the field in a more balanced manner and a more steady rhythm...and the influence of Berbatov often slowing the game down has changed the look of their game- for the better IMO, but that's just personal preference. 

As for the quality being better or worse, if it's either it's very marginal.  They are a quality team with almost the same roster, same manager and the same overall philosophy, so unless plagued by severe uncontrollables you wouldn't expect the quality of their game to vary that much.

I agree with just about everything yuh write there. I think it is very hard to say that the team was much better last year. I think that the changes makes the team more versatile and gives them more options because they could still up it to a more frenetic pace when required.

Omar would proably disagree though.

Damn right I disagree...

I mean, i try to be as objective as possible and I can give United credit this season for a few things.

Firstly, i agree that they have alot of strength in depth this season. The defence is playing exceptionally well despite injures to Neville, Ferdinand and Evra. Also, I really have to take my hat off to Giggs and the way he's reinvented himself in the central midfield role. the man is class.. Also i like the looks of a couple of the youths like Rafael..

However imo, the man utd team of last season at the top of their game was running over teams... i think that you can tie that to the form that Ronaldo was in, but still they always look good to explode on a side. they were scoring more goals and at times the football was scintillating.

This season they are not being tested as they should be.

Chelsea lie down and let them run riot on them.. Liverpool is a joke.. Arsenal is youths... Matter of fact, I would have liked to see them play a top form Aston Villa away to get a proper test of their credentials.

Furthermore, where some of you see a more balanced and measured brand, I see a more deliberate and labored style. Alot of their victories are not convincing. For all the talk about Berbatov, his goal return is poor for a striker leading the line for on a top of the table team. Ronaldo is half the player.. Nani going in reverse and fast. Rooney is probably the same or less effective than last year. Don't worry, you guys will soon see...

I doh blame man utd fans for enjoying the success, but lets not get carried away. When you look at what Barcelona has done for most of this season it is blasphemous to call Man utd the best team in Europe.

Lastly, if this Man Utd team is really that good, I want you to take off the rose tinted glasses and answer this simple question....

Do you honestly think this Man Utd team could beat the Mourinho's double title winning Chelsea team of a few years ago?

Post by: giggsy11 on March 02, 2009, 06:35:07 PM
Last year's team was easier on the eyes. The movement, tempo and not to mention finishing was excellent. last year's team scored some breathe taking goals, especialy on the counter attack. Berbatov has slowed the pace, Ronaldo has half arsed it most of the season and Evra has been out a lot replaced by the plodding but solid Oshea; some of the contributing factors to the lessened pace on the counter attacks. The defense this year is better and it has been the platform for this season's campain. This team, this season is methodical and can definitely play better offensively. Merge last year's offense with this year's defense and nobody will be able to touch that team.

Do you honestly think this Man Utd team could beat the Mourinho's double title winning Chelsea team of a few years ago?

You might be right Omar but yuh getting a lil carried away. 

First off I thought we were talking about about Man this season vs Man U last season...How does a comparison to Barcelona come into it?  And the talk about M U being the best in Europe? 

Next playing  better defensively is part of playing better....

Next the picture that you paint in that bolded part above is bit exaggerated as well.  I did some research

At this point in the season last season Man U:

58 points
Goal difference of +36
Scored 50 goals
Were shut out 2 times
Had 6 games where they scored 3 or more goals
Had 6 games where they won by 3 or more goals

This season, to date Man U:

61 points
Goal difference of +35
Scored 46 goals
Were shut out 2 times
Had 6 games where they scored 3 or more goals
Had 5 games where they won by 3 or more goals

I like Man U's team game more this season than last to me it's more balanced and less reliant on CR...some would prefer their game last season over this season...it was quicker, and arguably more explosive because CR was on fire... whether they end up as good this season as last is up in the air...winning CL is no easy feat so the stakes are very high and they will probably not end up there, but like I said in my last post- which is clearly supported by the facts- better or worse, the difference is very marginal.  I think you're letting an underperforming big 4 (the other 3) take the shine off Man U's football which has been steady and consistent- as it was last season...with at most a marginal difference in quality. 

That said I think Inter is poised to put a spoke in their wheel against the odds...gettin' a jumbie feelin'...

Foster in the clear after using iPod during final
By Mike Collett

LONDON, March 2 (Reuters) - The English FA will take no action against Manchester United or goalkeeper Ben Foster for using an iPod during Sunday’s League Cup final against Tottenham Hotspur, it said on Monday.

Foster watched videos of Spurs players taking penalties on an iPod and then saved from Jamie O’Hara as United lifted the cup after winning the penalty shootout 4-1 following their goalless draw at Wembley Stadium.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has resisted the use of any form of video technology, especially to determine if the ball has crossed the goalline, for many years. But the idea of using an iPod as a tactical aid is new and not against the laws of the game.

Former Premier League referee Graham Poll told the Daily Mail on Monday that using iPod technology “had the potential to exploit a loophole in the laws which should be referred to FIFA”.

An FA spokesman said: “What happened was not against the rules so we will not be investigating the matter further.”

Spurs were last involved in a penalty shootout a year ago when they lost to PSV Eindhoven in the UEFA Cup.

In that game, O’Hara fired a shot to the left of the goalkeeper and on Sunday he sent Tottenham’s first penalty the same way and Foster saved.

“Just before the shootout I was looking at an iPod with goalkeeping coach Eric Steele and it contained images of Tottenham’s players taking penalties,” Foster said.

“They told me for Jamie O’Hara I should stand up and be strong and he would probably go the way he did. I have done a lot of research before but this is an innovation we have brought in at the club.” (Editing by Sonia Oxley)

Yeah I peeps that.  I was checkin out how both teams were  standing; United players had their arms draped across each others shoulders whereas Spurs players some hand their hands on each other shoulders others had their arms crossed/folded across their bodies. The Spurs palyers were dispelling some rell negative body language.

Can United win all five?(FIFA.com) Tuesday 3 March 2009

In the days where 'recession', 'credit crunch' and 'global economic crisis' are on everyone's minds and lips, a different word is buzzing around the thoughts of football fans in Britain at the moment: ‘quintuple.' It's enough to set Manchester United supporters' hearts racing and fans of their rival teams into despair.

So, what exactly is this quintuple? Well, the Red Devils have 'two down and three to go.' They've already won the FIFA Club World Cup in December, thanks to their victory over Liga de Quito and on Sunday, defeated Tottenham Hotspur on penalties to lift the League Cup.

The Red Devils have the chance to go ten points clear of nearest challengers Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League if they win their game in hand against Portsmouth, face Fulham away in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and have home advantage against Inter Milan in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

But 'quintuple' is a word that is driving Sir Alex Ferguson crazy for different reasons. "I'm not getting carried away with it, only the media will," he said. "We will keep our feet on the ground.

"We do not speak about that stuff [the quintuple]. We'll take each game as it comes. We don't get ahead of ourselves and think of which silverware we are going to win next. We could go to Fulham in the FA Cup, the ball comes off someone's backside and we are out of that one."

Newcastle vs Utd(Wed 4th March on Setanta at 2:45pm ET...3:45TT Time)

Wazza is Back for Newcastle:
Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Wayne Rooney has shaken off a virus to be available for Manchester United's trip to Newcastle United.

Rooney missed Sunday's Carling Cup win over Tottenham Hotspur due to illness, but has trained on Monday and Tuesday.

He will be in the squad for Wednesday's game at St James' Park and the striker could renew his partnership with Dimitar Berbatov up front.

Ferguson said on Sky Sports News: "He's fine. He trained yesterday, he trained today and he will be available for tomorrow."

John O'Shea is United's only injury worry for the game after the versatile Irishman was substituted in the Carling Cup final due to an ongoing heel problem.
Tough game

"We took him off on Sunday as he's still got a problem with his heel," said Ferguson.

"It settled down after a day or so, and we will put some new insoles in his boot to see if that helps.

"He should be okay and, other than that, everyone is fine for tomorrow and we look forward to a very tough game."

Berbatov, Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher and Park Ji-sung are all expected to return to the United team, with Ferguson admitting the Wembley pitch had an impact on the players who faced Spurs.

He added: "It was a heavy pitch, surprisingly heavy. You associate Wembley with a fantastic playing surface, but as you all saw, it was heavy and it was greasy with players slipping a lot.

"It took its toll on the players, we had tired players by the end of the match, but we have some freshness tomorrow.

"We've got Dimitar, we've got Michael Carrick and Anderson, who didn't play a full game. We've got Darren Fletcher, Ji-sung Park and Wayne Rooney, so we're not so bad."

So it looks like Ronaldo will be given a place on the bench....he's played alot over the past month

I thought the talk was about last season's Man U to this season's Man U.... so I didn't think that question was even relevant....unless yuh saying that last season's Man U coulda beaten the Chelsea of 05/06.  (I don't know how one could even determine that)...

But to address yuh question,...."honestly think" ? lol  you serious?....Wid dem two words alone I could assure yuh that you will get no where with that question.... Some will say yes, and some will say no... Where does that leave you?

My 2 cents- From what I remember the Chelsea of 05/06 lost to Man U away & beat Man U at home.. Was the Man U of 05/06 that more special than the Man U of this season?  I don't remember, but if they weren't (which is a reasonable guess because they crashed out in the CL group stage in a group with Benfica, Lille & Villareal- I think they only won one game...and lost to Liverpool in one of the FA Cup rounds...not too flaterring), then the answer to your question would have to be yes...honestly? yes...

Yes! I am not saying that because I support United. I think the this team is better defensively, the midfield is better and the forwards more experienced, compared to the United team from that season. United were unable to compete with Chelski in midfield. I believe we started that season with Fortune on the wing, a broken down Keane in midfield and a raw Ronaldo and Rooney, Silvestre and Henzie in defence. Today's team will be able to do a better job of neutralizing Chelski's strengths while generating their own attacks. The biggest difference would be the matching of mentalities. I feel United will be able to match Chelski's winning mentality and win at all cost attitude. It would be a great match up- with each team winning on it's own turf.

As kicker rightly say it is an irrelevant question. More than that though it is a question that anybody could answer how they want. You obviously feel that side was SOOOO much better, but there really is no way to say.

On a footballing basis that side run over the league but it was typical hard-running Mourinho football, nothing spectacular. The same criticism yuh placing on this United side i.e. quality of big 4 opposition also applies to that side.

United a weaker side and squad than today by a good bit (Howard, Fortune, Richardson, Smith, Saha, Heinze, Miller, Silvestre - All good players but all with their flaws compared to the current squad). Arsenal had started their rebuilding and Liverpool is Liverpool. You could argue that the big 4 is better now becuase all 4 English teams are competitive in Europe when that was not the case back then.

That is a shit argument that you could never conclusively win and if a large pool of people was polled you would most likely lose.

That said I think Inter is poised to put a spoke in their wheel against the odds...gettin' a jumbie feelin'... 

I have a similar feeling.

I think they good enough to go through but they really shoulda punish Inter last week. there ar eseveral omens that not noce

1. It not easy to shut out a big team over two legs which means that an Inter goal over 90 minutes is not unlikely. That means United really needs to target 2 goals and a win which is not easy becuase this Inter side has proved that they are hard to beat.

2. 0-0 away is a bad scoreline for United. Went out to both Monaco and Real Madrid on the back of 0-0 away draws while chasing the game at home.

3. Holders have a hard time in the CL fo rsome reason and they all tend to go out around the 2nd round.

4. Inter are unlikely to present th egift that is Rivas after last week's game.

On the positive side. Vidic will be back. Barring injuries tomorrow or Saturday the side will be fit and the side is playing well. If the last game is any indication, United is the better side than Inter and should win it, if they play to potential. The game will be pressure to wach though, like the Barcelona game was last year.

I still think this one is a 50-50, could go either way affair.

No Way Jose  ;D

Manchester United booked their place in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals after defeating Inter Milan 2-0 at Old Trafford.

The European Cup holders scored two goals within the first four minutes of each half as Sir Alex Ferguson recorded only his second win over Jose Mourinho.

Nemanja Vidic headed past Julio Cesar from a Ryan Giggs corner after just fout minutes, before Cristiano Ronaldo sealed the win just after the interval when he too nodded home after good work by Wayne Rooney.

United did not have it all their own way, however, as Inter, much improved from the first leg, hit the woodwork twice through Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Adriano.

United began the game confidently and looked to get Ronaldo on the ball as much as possible in a bid to take advantage of the inexperienced Davide Santon at left-back.

It was an early foray down the right hand side form the Portuguese winger, which earned his side a corner, which brought about the opening goal.

Giggs trotted across to whip the ball in and he found Vidic, who took advantage of some slack marking by Patrick Vieira, to power a header past Cesar.

United could have doubled their lead on 18 minutes when Giggs got in behind Maicon but, with only Dimitar Berbatov to aim for, his cross was cut out by Walter Samuel as the referee waved away protests of hand ball.

Berbatov had been a doubt immediately before kick-off after going over on his ankle in the warm-up, but the Bulgarian appeared to have shaken off the problem as he looked lively early on.
Over confident

The hosts began to look over confident as both Giggs and Paul Scholes were guilty of giving the ball away in dangerous areas.

The Welshman's misplaced flick halfway inside the Inter half nearly led to the visitors equalising just before the half-hour mark.

In United's desperation to win the ball back they gave away a free-kick just inside their own half. Maicon crossed and Ibrahimovic headed downwards at the far post only to see his header come back off the bar with Edwin Van der Sar beaten.

Mourinho's men had settled well since their early set-back as the home side went through a sloppy spell ten minutes before the break.

Inter midfielder Dejan Stankovic nearly made them pay when he hit a shot from all of 30 yards that swerved just wide of Van der Sar's left-hand post, with the Dutchman scrambling across his goal.

But United came back and should have made it two on 37 minutes when Giggs drifted in from the right and found Rooney, whose first-time pass cut open the Inter defence and found John O'Shea bearing down on goal, but his effort was saved by Cesar.

Inter immediately went up the other end, with Mario Balotelli mirroring what Rooney had done moments earlier when he duly sliced open the home defence with a first-time pass which sent Ibrahimovic through, but his fierce drive across goal went just wide.

Inter began the second half as brightly as they ended the first as Sulley Muntari came on for Vieira but it was United who got the game's next goal four minutes into the second period.

Influential

Giggs was again influential as he left a number of Inter players in his wake as he dribbled infield from the right before finding Scholes, who in turn fed Rooney on the left corner of the area.

The 23-year-old teased Maicon before floating a dangerous in-swinging ball with his right foot which was met by Ronaldo, who got their before Cesar, to head into the unguarded net.

Inter were momentarily shaken but began to find their rhythm again just before the hour as Mourinho went for broke by sacrificing Stankovic for Adriano.

The Brazilian produced a moment of magic seconds later when he linked up with Esteban Cambiasso and volleyed left footed, on the stretch, against the post.

Sir Alex Ferguson's men responded and should have put the game out of sight on 59 minutes when Cesar parried a long range Rooney drive straight to Giggs, who laid the ball off to Berbatov but his shot from five yards was smothered by the keeper.

Mourinho made his final substitution of the night with Luis Figo replacing Balotelli, while Ferguson brought Anderson on for Scholes as he looked to close the game out.

But it was the visitors who continued to press as United struggled to keep possession of the ball, however, wayward long-distance attempts from Ibrahimovic and Adriano undermined their impressive approach play.

The Swede may have pulled a goal back had he committed himself to Muntari's deep left-wing cross on 75 minutes. Instead he did not react quickly enough after the ball went over Patrice Evra's head and rebounded off his chest for a goal kick.

Mourinho backs Man Utd glory hunt

Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United can complete the quintuple this season.

United reached the Champions League quarter-finals by knocking out Inter on Wednesday and Mourinho said: "Right now they're at their maximum level.

"They have experience, quality, great physical condition and intensity in their game.

"That's why they're European champions. That is why they can win everything. I think they can win five trophies."

United are a quality team and showed against us exactly why they are European champions
Jose Mourinho
United have already won the Fifa Club World Cup and the Carling Cup and the 2-0 aggregate victory over Inter keeps Sir Alex Ferguson's side on course to retain the Champions League.

The Red Devils are seven points clear in the Premier League and are also in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Mourinho added: "United have worked together for five consecutive years. They were a young side but are not young anymore.

"They have basically the same team as when I was at Chelsea. Only Dimitar Berbatov is new.

"United are a quality team and showed against us exactly why they are European champions. You have to say they deserved to win."

After a goalless draw in the San Siro a fortnight ago, Nemanja Vidic gave United the lead after four minutes before Cristiano Ronaldo headed United's second just after the break.

But Inter also had their chances and hit the woodwork twice.


Seven DevL
"They scored two goals over the course of the two games and we have to accept that, in football, the team that wins always deserves it but I don't think we should be negative about my team's display," stated Mourinho.

"We played a great match against a great team. We just lacked that little bit of luck you need to win, that little thing that makes that difference between winning and not winning.

"We went one down after a couple of minutes but we had three chances to score in the first half, more than our opponents, and we hit the bar from three metres out.

"In the second half we lost another goal but we continued to play and we showed great character."

Mourinho is confident his side will bounce back from the disappointment and go on to seal a fourth consecutive Serie A title.

They are currently top of the table, seven points clear of second-placed Juventus.

"We have not been good enough to win the Champions League but we are good enough to win the Scudetto and I'm sure we will go on and win it," he said.

Mourinho also revealed he would be telling Inter president Massimo Moratti what needs to be done to make Inter a match for the likes of United.

"You can't just turn up and expect to win the Champions League just like that," he commented.

"One way is to spend a huge amount of money, which we know is not realistic in the current climate. The second way is to build a team over the course of time.

"Chelsea lost three semis before getting to last year's final. It is a process and getting to the top is a consequence of the hard work you put in."

United can tighten their grip on the Premier League by beating title rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday.

once again Fergie got his team selection wrong...

I think Spurs and Villa are going to beat Chelsea and Liverpool... but even if they(pool and chelski) win I am not too bothered as they will slip up eventually as well...

Today would have been a good game tuh play Fabio. Fergie do shit startin two lofas like Ronaldo and Berbatov up front. You always need tuh have one hustle man when either of them startin. Like Nani could only play Cups or what? Ronaldo need someone like Keane tuh be in his face tuh stop that shit he does be doing on the field!

Plenty men beating up theyself for no reason.

This is a dip to be sure and it not looking nice but it happens. It happen to Barca last month and  now is United time. Better now than at the end of the season. Hopefully the international break will give everybody a chance to get their shit together.

The race back on for sure but Liverpool show that they have problems playing teams who willing to sit back against them. It will be hard for them to make a serious run with that one striker football they does play.

yuh see wha ah does cyah take bout Ferguson...

Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney were both sent off by referee Phil Dowd - Scholes in the 17th minute for handling a Bobby Zamora header on the goal line and substitute Rooney for a second bookable offence.

The latter dismissal frustrated Ferguson, who added on MUTV: "Did he (Rooney) throw the ball at the referee? The ball was thrown direct to where the free-kick was being taken - did it hit the referee? No.

"He threw it because he wanted to get the game going. What can you say about that?


???

Rooney screw up he pan, take the ball and frankoment scooch it quite into the next half.. That was a clear cut yellow card if there ever was one. Fergie is a friggin hypocrite.

I've been watching reserve highlights this season and every game kiko scores... I was wondering when will he get a spot on the bench... but he was nervous as f**k when he came on but WHAT A GOAL!...

he has a lot of heart and will definitely be a future star at OT...

We were missing a good bit of 1st teamers today and it showed but the heart showed to win the game was tops especially the way we won...

This game due to the late show will cause:
Heads to drop in merseyside
and
Confidence and the heart re instilled at Old Trafford

Yeah; I saw the reserve game last week when he scored the hat trick... he's been doing it week in week out. I've been watching him for a while. Almost the entire bench was from the reserve side from last week's game (Eckersley, Kikko, Lee Martin; they all had good games). Fergie is serious about these youths and Ole is doing a great job with the reserves. Great result for the team. The battle is well joined.

Rooney, Scholes & Vidic Set To Return For Manchester United Against Porto
The Red Devils will welcome back a trio of stars in time for Tuesday's Champions League tie...

Manchester United will receive a boost for their Champions League tie with Porto at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, as a trio of key men are set to return.


Wayne Rooney, Paul Scholes and Nemanja Vidic, players whose absence would seriously weaken any side, were forced to watch their side's dramatic 3-2 home victory over Aston Villa today from the stands, but should be back in action against the Portuguese outfit.

Industrious South Korean winger Ji-Sung Park is also set to be available for selection once more, though there is less favourable news concerning defender Rio Ferdinand and Brazilian midfielder Anderson, neither of     whom look likely to be ready in time after picking up knocks whilst on international duty last week.

"I don't think any of the injured players will be back on Tuesday," United manager Alex Ferguson told MUTV.

"But we do have the suspended players back which is good. Vida [Vidic] will play alongside Jonny Evans at the back with John O'Shea moving to right-back.

"Rooney and Scholes are also available which will give us a bit more penetration and experience, and Ji-Sung Park will also be ready so I've got some good options for Tuesday."

There was also a slight doubt over Ryan Giggs, though this was more to do with the effects of what fatigue might have on the Welshman's veteran legs rather than any injury.

Ferguson concluded, "I'll have to assess how Ryan [Giggs] is after playing the 90 minutes against Villa. It's a big ask for someone at 35 years of age to play another game two days later at the kind of level we play."

Premier League Preview: Sunderland – Manchester United
Both teams need three points for entirely different reasons as the Black Cats welcome the Red Devils to the Stadium of Light...
9 Apr 2009 20:56:17

The honeymoon period is over, and Ricky Sbragia is desperately searching for the result that will see Sunderland beat their North East rivals to Premier League survival.

Since taking over the Sunderland hot seat in December, the former Manchester United reserve team coach has presided over a less than inspiring spell in charge.

The free scoring wins against Hull City and West Bromwich Albion are a now but a distant memory. Last weekend’s 2-0 loss to a depleted West Ham United side has raised the pressure even more as the trap door back to the Championship beckons.

In any normal period, the visit of the reigning English and European champions would hardly seem like the type of fixture to get an inspiring result from. However, the Black Cats faithful know it’s time to pounce.

For an upset to be registered, the home side’s front men must re-discover their shooting boots. French international Djibril Cisse and highly rated target man Kenwyne Jones were supposed to be the men to fire the club to safety.

The disappointing duo have instead have failed to find the back of the net since the beginning of February. When this is aligned with a leaky defence, all the ingredients for a recipe for relegation are present.

With United’s rearguard in an uncharacteristically welcoming mode, the front men should get plenty of opportunities to re-discover their scoring touch.

If they make Edwin Van der Sar pick the ball out of his net, then the Red and Whites should be galvanised enough to send Middlesbrough and Newcastle United down a division.

Stumbling On

After getting out of jail against Aston Villa, the visit of Porto was supposed to herald the re-birth of Manchester United’s five pronged quest for honours.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men now travel up the A1 to Sunderland with their Champions League dream hanging by a thread and Premier League ambitions called into question once more.

To put it kindly, the Red Devils were disappointing against the Portuguese in the 2-2 draw. Second best in every department, and lucky not to be three goals down within the opening 20 minutes, the Scottish manager will have forcibly told his players that a repeat show on Saturday is not acceptable.

Again, the Mancunians record breaking rearguard bore the brunt of the manager’s wrath. Just four minutes were on the clock when Jonny Evans put the first on a plate, and just one minute was left when a mix up allowed Mariano in the clear to equalise.

Sure, Sunderland are hardly firing on all cylinders. But, if goals are handed out cheaply again, then the Premier League momentum which has swayed in the Reds favour after Liverpool’s dreadful loss to Chelsea will be stopped dead in its tracks.

Thankfully for anyone of a United persuasion, the blow to the ribs which Wayne Rooney suffered on Tuesday night is not expected to keep him out of the action. The Scouser was United’s only saving grace that night.

Without him in the side, his bitter enemies from the other half of Merseyside could be in a celebratory mood once more by Saturday evening.

April 04 vs. West Ham United (A) LOST 2-0 (PREM)

March 22 vs. Manchester City (A) LOST 1-0 (PREM)

TEAM NEWS

Sunderland:

George McCartney is expected to be back in the match day squad after recovering from an ankle injury. Centre back Calum Davenport also returns to the fold after being unable to feature against parent club West Ham United last weekend.

Finland international Teemu Tainio (knee) and David Connolly (groin) are still sidelined.

Last starting XI (vs. West Ham United): Gordon, Bardsley, Ferdinand, Ben-Haim, Collins, Malbranque (Edwards 75), Whitehead, Richardson, Leadbitter, Cisse, Murphy (Jones 54).
Subs Not Used: Fulop, Nosworthy, Reid, Healy, McShane.

Squad: Gordon, Fulop, Colgan, McCartney, Nosworthy, Davenport, Bardsley, McShane, Ferdinand, Ben-Haim, Collins, Malbranque, Edwards, Reid, Yorke, Whitehead, Richardson, Leadbitter, Healy, Cisse, Murphy, Jones.

Possible starting XI: Gordon, Bardsley, Ferdinand, Davenport, Collins, Malbranque, Whitehead, Richardson, Leadbitter, Cisse, Jones.

Manchester United:

Question marks hang over the participation of central defenders Jonny Evans (groin) and Rio Ferdinand (groin) for the visit to the Stadium of Light.

Anderson (thigh) and Rafael (foot) are also likely to be missing. Wes Brown (foot) and Dimitar Berbatov (foot) are still a week away from returning. Owen Hargreaves (knee) continues his rehabilitation from surgery.

Last starting XI (vs. Porto): Van der Sar, O'Shea, Vidic, Evans (Neville 72), Evra, Fletcher, Carrick, Scholes (Tevez 72), Ronaldo, Rooney, Park (Giggs 58).
Subs Not Used: Foster, Eckersley, Nani, Macheda.

Squad: Van der Sar, Foster, Kuszczak, Evra, O’Shea, Evans, Ferdinand, Fabio, Eckersley, Fletcher, Carrick, Possebon, Gibson, Park, Scholes, Giggs, Nani, Ronaldo, Macheda, Tevez, Rooney, Welbeck.

Possible starting XI: Van der Sar, O’Shea, Vidic, Neville, Evra, Fletcher, Carrick, Giggs, Ronaldo, Rooney, Tevez.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Sunderland: Just like his team-mates, Steed Malbranque has lost his spark in recent months. The former Fulham player enjoyed tormenting Manchester United several times during his days as a Cottager. If he can provide the inspiration once again, then Sunderland might just get the result needed to steady a sinking ship.

Manchester United: As the Reds defensive crisis deepens, Nemanja Vidic must use his famous resolve to drag his team-mates through. The Serbian wasn’t at his best on his return from suspension in mid-week, but with Rio Ferdinand and Jonny Evans scratching for full fitness, United are relying on him to keep Sunderland out.

PREDICTION

Whatever happens on Saturday, don’t expect to tune in and see a classic game. Both teams are struggling to mount the final hurdle, and this should be a closely fought contest.

Manchester United’s superior quality will see them through ahead of Ricky Sbragia’s relegation threatened side, but the margin between victory and defeat will be narrow.

Sunderland 1-2 Manchester United

My point on Macheda's goal isn't so much the execution... as I said, taking nothing away from what he did, but let's be honest, there wasn't that much power behind it that Friedel couldn't do anything with it.  He got beat but better range or quicker reaction (maybe even positioning) and he would have been able to stop it.  Seems like some are construing my comments as some slight against ManU's latest wunderkind... which it isn't.

Nah I was just commenting on your description of it as a "soft goal"....I wouldn't describe it as such.

To me it looked like a well placed shot outta the keeper's reach with a decent amount of bend on it- not sure if Friedel had much of a chance- he looked to be at full stretch, but like yuh say maybe his reaction was slow and his positioning was bad....I didn't observe that.

On the first goal he was like a fish outta water, on the second, he seemed to have seen it late...the last one I give him a bligh...

Nah man, ah say it was "kinda soft"... co-signing on Observer's point that of late Friedel seems to have issues covering to his left.  Ah even went on to say that I meant to take nothing from Macheda's effort.  Only reason I fault his positioning is that from the replays I remember him taking a step to his right before realizing the ball was coming to his left... that step took him out of making a play on the ball.

Bottomline is I'm not faulting Friedel for allowing the goal... I think he should have done better with it ("kinda soft"), but Macheda's effort was brilliant enough to make a good argument that despite his best efforts the goal would have scored... wasn't trying to make any argument on Macheda's goal.  Ronaldo's is another story.

I hear you- I guess I didn't really pay as close attention...Friedel may indeed have a slight weakness going to his left... or maybe it just wasn't his day (that first goal was such a botched effort on his part)... but one thing we can agree on is that just the sheer hype alone (quality notwithstanding) surrounding Macheda's debut goal was overshadowing enough to spare Friedel any blushes could he have in fact done any better on the last effort.

I take absolutely nothing away from Macheda... given the stakes; given the stage of the game; given his age; given the fact that it was his first start.  Brilliant way to seize the moment to not just win it for his club, but win it win a nice piece of skill to set up a nice effort that connected.  In a meaningless game it would be a good goal... in a game that may eventually prove title-clincher it takes on superlative dimensions.

 Sir Alex Ferguson issues rare public criticism of Cristiano Ronaldo• Ferguson grows tired of 24-year-old's histrionics
• 'You can't get everything your own way'

 guardian.co.uk, Sunday 12 April 2009 11.04 BST Article history


Cristiano Ronaldo has grown increasingly frustrated at the perceived lack of protection from referees.

Sir Alex Ferguson has criticised Cristiano Ronaldo, chastising his behaviour in recent matches and telling the Manchester United winger: "You can't get everything your own way."


Ronaldo was an instrumental figure for United last season, scoring 42 goals as Ferguson's side clinched the Premier League and Champions League double and although the Portugal international remains United's leading goalscorer with 19 goals this campaign, his influence has waned this campaign.


Ronaldo has increasingly shown signs of frustration at his perceived rough treatment at the hands of opposition defenders and, after being guilty of giving the ball away in the lead-up to goals for Aston Villa and Porto last week, was dropped to the substitute's bench for Manchester United's 2-1 win at Sunderland yesterday. Ferguson also issued a rare public condemnation.


"I don't accept that he will give goals away because of the player he is," said Ferguson. "I speak to him about it. I don't accept that from anyone. In European football, if you give the ball away it takes a long time to get it back."


Ferguson said that Ronaldo had grown tired of some players trying everything they could to stop him, but the United manager believes that the World Player of the Year is allowing frustration to get the run of him.


"He always feels he's not getting the proper protection from referees and I think that, maybe, in quite a few cases he is right, and a few cases he is not right," said Ferguson. "It's hard when a player who wants to entertain doesn't get everything his own way. But you can't get everything your own way. He understands that and there's not a problem with that."


Ferguson, who brought Ronaldo on midway through the second half of his side's victory at the Stadium of Light, will hope that his rebuke gets the desired reaction from the 24-year-old – who has been linked with a £75m summer move to Real Madrid – at Porto on Wednesday, where United must become the first English side to win at the Estadio do Dragao if they are to stay in the Champions League.


"It's just a frustration that he feels he doesn't get the decision and he gets upset about it," added Ferguson. "I think, obviously, he doesn't enjoy that and he knows he's letting himself down more than anything. He holds his hands up. I have had to remind him about that but I'm not getting into what has been said."

I think the kids did great, it was great tuh see them playing- Gibson for me still not up tuh par with what it takes tuh play for United; he showed zero creativity and was only lookin tuh play the ball back of to the side. No forward passing to initiate offense. I think teams have tuh be very careful about giving youngsters consistent runs, because their bodies can't handle the rigors of playing at such a high level week in and week out. That is why if you have a team that is overly reliant on youngesters you will see that dey breakin down on a regular basis. Watch and see how many of Arsenal's youngsters stay healthy for a full season.  So I don't mind if dey get a run here and there, Rafa need not be playing 30 plus games at age 18. In the semis- the ole heads let us down. How agian I ask could fergie let the two most causual men on the time take the first 2 pks?! Could ting we playing on Wednesday! Chelski for the trebel!

However the penalties went really didn't matter. United didn't do much in the 120 minutes to deserve going to the final. The order could have been different and they would lose same way.

All credit to Everton because they are a good side and deserve the win.

Is too bad though I think that the FA cup was more winnable than the CL and a stronger squad could have won this game. It is a long time since United win the FA Cup losing the last 2 finald they went to. Hopefully they will win it again soon.

I disagree that United didn't much to deserve to go the finals and that Everton deserved to win. Howard had to make more saves and United were just as industriuous as Everton, if not more.  As far as the order of the penalty takers, it would make sense to always put your stronger penalty takers first. Ferdinand is not a stronger or better penalty taker than Tevez. Don't know what Berbatov's problem is.

Quote
Ferguson said: "I've no idea if it affected the decision but it may have. It can prey on a referee's mind."


Quote
"Why would Welbeck go down when he had the goalkeeper stranded out of his goal? It was a major decision and unfortunately it has gone against us."
When the best diver in the game is not around to con the ref, somebody needs to do the dirty work of cheating. The boy is only learning from the best, CRonaldo.

Quote
Rio Ferdinand said: "We don't get many penalties these days. Referees are reluctant to give them to us. Maybe they're are being put under pressure by people in the media."

There was little IF ANY contact on Wellbeck... it looked to me that he dragged his feet to ensure contact with the goalie before crumbling into a pile.  Why would he go down Fergie asks?  Well, because that's what he's been conditioned to do... seek contact and look for a penalty when in the box.

How Brazilian twins became an ideal match for Ferguson

]Rafael and Fabio de Silva had their first start as Manchester United's full-backs on Sunday.

Ian Herbert reveals the story of how they forged the perfect partnership

Tuesday, 21 April 20 2009


Rafael and Fabio da Silva during their time with Fluminense. Manchester United beat off strong competition from Arsenal and Real Madrid to sign the twins, who played together for the first time in the first team on Sunday.
'
Among the few consolations for Sir Alex Ferguson amid the ashes of Manchester United's quintuple hopes yesterday was the knowledge that two of his old adversaries would have had to endure watching the twin teenagers he signed from under their noses play together for the first time. Rafael and Fabio da Silva have revealed that Arsène Wenger wanted to take them to take them to Arsenal and that Real Madrid also tried to lure them to the Bernabeu, having watched them play for the Brazil Under-17 side, captained by Rafael.

The brothers, whose closeness stretches from their identical Ben Sherman luggage on European away trips to consecutive squad numbers (20 and 21) and matching toothbrushes in the house United have found for them, have also revealed something about why Ferguson beat Wenger to the punch on this occasion. The club's "hard work" paid dividends, they say, and Ferguson – or "Señor Alex" as they have taken to call him – has evidently made an impression too. "He always speaks well and is always very supportive of us," Fabio says. "He really likes to know what people are like both on and off the field. But he jokes around with us too."

There is a seemingly perfect symmetry about the two defensive bookends: Rafael at right-back and Fabio, considered by many to be the more naturally gifted of the two but limited by shoulder and calf injuries this season, on the left. But Fabio reveals, in an interview with the Manchester University student magazine, that he is right-footed just like his brother and has cultivated the left foot, which prevents the two competing for the same spot. It was their manager at Fluminense, Edgar Pereira, who deployed Fabio at left back and Rafael on the right and it stuck. "I'm right-footed but I'm comfortable with my left too," Fabio reveals.
There are differences. Fabio is the more serious and introverted of the brothers, who married his 17-year-old girlfriend, Barbara, before they left Brazil for Manchester, so that she could be with him. "I'm serious like that, I like being at home," he says. The wedding is a source of amusement for Rafael but it has helped Ferguson, who admits that Fabio's wedding ring is the only point of differentiation between the two.

The twins' story is that of many young Brazilians. They grew up in an impoverished district of Petropolis, an hour's drive from Rio de Janeiro, were spotted playing in a five-a-side tournament near Fluminense, the team they had always dreamt of representing, and upped sticks, aged 11, in the hope of making their name. Playing for Fluminense's superb youth side in the Nike Premier Cup Under-15s tournament in Hong Kong, which United also contest, they were spotted three years ago by the club's then academy manager, Les Kershaw.

So began many months of frustration, in which the brothers remained at Fluminense for the year it took them to turn 18 and become eligible to apply for work permits in the United Kingdom under the Portuguese nationality they could claim through their grandfather. They feel Fluminense should have allowed them to play in that time. "It was so hard, and totally unfair. If you are a footballer, you just have to play," says Fabio.

The entire family clan eventually decamped to Manchester. The brothers' parents and Fabio's young wife arrived with the twins' older brother, Luis Henrique, who had played for Brescia in Italy, and his own wife. Henrique tried to ply his trade with non-league Radcliffe Borough before returning to Brazil. It was – and remains – a period of adjustment with no little yearning, from Fabio in particular, for the land of their birth. "I like it here but it doesn't compare to Brazil. We have a lot of friends from our time there, our best friends in the world are from there," Fabio says.

But a general air of bonhomie around Carrington – with Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra's practical jokes, carried out on the twins' Brazilian compatriot Anderson – seems to have gone a long way to helping the two settle in. "He is a really good friend of ours," Rafael says of Ferdinand. "Of course, he is serious when he has to be, but really he is the biggest joker on the team. We love to have him on our team in training; he is always messing about with the ball with [Cristiano] Ronaldo and playing tricks on the other players with Patrice. Once, Anderson came to training in his slippers, and they set fire to his slippers and tipped cream out all over them. During training everyone is serious. But the most serious would be [Paul] Scholes."

Rafael is the one who has marked himself out, his performance in the 3-0 Champions League win in Aalborg and his goal against Arsenal at the Emirates in November proving the high points. "The ball just came to me and I thought ... shoot!" Rafael recalls. "At the time I really didn't feel a thing, it didn't click that I'd scored against Arsenal." But it has been hard to discern much competitiveness between them, despite Fabio's slower start in England. "I actually get more nervous when he is playing than when I am," Rafael says. "That's what we're like really, we get more nervous for each other," adds his brother.

There is a difference of opinion on whether they might forgo the chance to represent Brazil, with Ferguson's former assistant Carlos Queiroz keen to tie them into his Portuguese national set-up. "We want to play for Brazil, but if that doesn't happen, I could play for Portugal," says Rafael. "I don't think there's anything wrong with players who play for Portugal, as long as they don't forget where they were born and their culture." Fabio is less convinced. "It's my dream to play for Brazil," he said. But for now, establishing roles at United is a priority– with Evra, for all his tomfoolery, a formidable obstacle.

STRIKER ON THE MOVE?
Tevez admits he's likely to leave Old Trafford
By Soccernet staff


 Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has moved closer to a summer exit from the club after admitting he needs to be playing regular first team football and be selected for the big games.

(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll314/Chunkycj/Tevez2050127.jpg)
Tevez: Unlikely to stay

The 25-year-old's two-year loan from Kia Joorabchian's Media Sports Investments (MSI) is up at the end of the current season and there has been little to suggest the Premier League champions have attempted to secure a permanent deal.

The Red Devils are likely to have been put off by the reputed £30m price tag slapped on the player by Joorabchian, especially as Tevez has played second fiddle to Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov for most of the campaign.

The Argentina international has started half of United's Premier League games this term, with a total of 31 starts in all competition and a further 13 appearances from the bench, scoring 13 goals.

Speaking to Radio Del Plata, Tevez said: "I have many offers, not only from Spain: I need to see which club I can go to and what can be done. We must not only consider the money, I also have to ensure my family feel comfortable, especially my daughter. So I have a lot to think about.

"Even if you score three or four goals, you do not play in another game. There are many very good players but I need to play. I have trained every day and never said anything against my team-mates or anyone but it is true that there are other options for next season.

"There are many players and they all need to play but I have not lost my place because of what I did when I played. I have not played in important matches. The 'clasico' against Chelsea, I did not play. Those are the games that I like to play in."

[MANCHESTER UNITED held talks with Kaka yesterday over a sensational summer move.

The Brazilian’s representatives met United to discuss personal terms which would total £35million in wages alone.

A source close to the AC Milan superstar confirmed: “It was a very positive meeting, although nothing was agreed.

“The player wants a five-year contract and wages of £135,000 a week. He is very keen to join United and these are figures that are within United’s pay structure. It’s up to them what happens now.”

The talks did not involve any discussion about a transfer fee but Milan expect to get at least £70m for their star player.

The big question now is how United will find the cash — and whether they will sell Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer to Real Madrid.

Kaka, 27, has already spoken of his affinity for United, saying: “They have some great players in Giggs and Scholes and especially Wayne Rooney.

“One of my best friends, Anderson, is also there — how can anyone say no?

“They are the English and European champions and a great club to play for.”

United eye Tevez Stay

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted the he is doing everything he can to ensure Carlos Tevez remains at the club.

The Argentine's future is currently the subject of conjecture as he comes to the end of a two-year loan deal.

United are keen to extend his stay but it has been suggested Tevez could seek a move elsewhere, with Liverpool the latest to be mooted as suitors, come the end of the season.

The forward's playing time has been reduced since the summer arrival of Dimitar Berbatov, but Ferguson is 'working towards' a new agreement with the player.

"Whether the games he has played are important games or not is a different question but he has played in quite a few big games," said Ferguson. "I don't want him to be unhappy because he is an important player for us.

"The difficulty is when you have got the options I have got - I bought another striker in with Berbatov, as well as having the option of playing (Cristiano) Ronaldo as a striker - you create problems for yourself because all good players want to play in every game.

"But they can't play in every game in this league - it is impossible. I think he genuinely wants to stay here and that is something we are trying to work towards.

"I have told him that repeatedly. And there is not much more I can do."

Manchester United know the visit of Tottenham Hotspur is going to be a pivotal fixture in their quest for Premier League glory.

Wednesday's victory over Portsmouth saw United reclaim top spot in the league and the result puts Sir Alex Ferguson's side firmly in the driving seat to match Liverpool's record of 18 titles.

With time running out for the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea to catch the Red Devils, bosses Rafa Benitez and Gus Hiddink will be hoping Spurs can do them a favour.

Harry Redknapp has turned the ship around at White Hart Lane by steering the Londoners away from relegation and has eyes on a place in next season's Europa League.

Redknapp, who masterminded FA Cup victories over United during spells at West Ham and Pompey, faces the sternest of tasks to claim even a point at a ground where Tottenham rarely get anything.
Nightmare

The Theatre of Dreams has been one of nightmares for Spurs with only three draws from their last 16 visits to Old Trafford, but at least Redknapp's side come into the game with the better league form of the two sides.

The midweek win for United came at a price with the injuries to Gary Neville and John O'Shea, the former is ruled out of Saturday's teatime fixture but O'Shea has made a shock recovery and could feature.

Ferguson has been boosted by the return of Wes Brown after the defender featured for the reserves twice this week, but the United boss may consider the defender too rusty to start so Rafael may get the nod at right-back.

Rio Ferdinand has been described as the key figure in the Red Devils' title bid by former Red David May and the England international is set to return at the heart of United's defence after being rested for the 2-0 win over Pompey.

Spurs boost

Jermaine Jenas could return for Tottenham after missing Sunday's 1-0 victory over struggling Newcastle with a hamstring injury.

But Spurs, who are unbeaten in six games against the top four this season, look set to be without the services of Michael Dawson and Roman Pavlyuchenko.

Dawson is out for three weeks after partially tearing ankle ligaments in last weekend's win so Johnathan Woodgate and Ledley King are expected to be the centre-back partnership.

Pavlyuchenko had hoped to recover from a back injury, but the United fixture appears to have come too soon for the Russian striker.

Alan Hutton impressed in his substitute appearance against the Magpies and may pip Vedran Corluka to a starting berth at right-back.

Possible starting XIs:

Man Utd: Van der Sar, Evra, Vidic, Ferdinand, Rafael, Park, Scholes, Carrick, Ronaldo, Berbatov, Rooney.

Tottenham: Gomes, Assou-Ekotto, King, Woodgate, Hutton, Modric, Palacios, Jenas, Lennon, Bent, Keane.

[MANCHESTER UNITED held talks with Kaka yesterday over a sensational summer move.

The Brazilian’s representatives met United to discuss personal terms which would total £35million in wages alone.

A source close to the AC Milan superstar confirmed: “It was a very positive meeting, although nothing was agreed.

“The player wants a five-year contract and wages of £135,000 a week. He is very keen to join United and these are figures that are within United’s pay structure. It’s up to them what happens now.”

The talks did not involve any discussion about a transfer fee but Milan expect to get at least £70m for their star player.

The big question now is how United will find the cash — and whether they will sell Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer to Real Madrid.

Kaka, 27, has already spoken of his affinity for United, saying: “They have some great players in Giggs and Scholes and especially Wayne Rooney.

“One of my best friends, Anderson, is also there — how can anyone say no?

“They are the English and European champions and a great club to play for.”

Gomes is looking like the keeper he was rated as back in Holland.  See what a lil pep talk and reassurance from the coach could do.  He looking technically sound, and you could see the confidence in his body language, even when he does not manage to hold a shot cleanly.  He's not slouching any more.

losing on penalties after outplaying Everton with a youth squad does not fall in the same catergory of a cut ass....

and this is why everyone thinks you are a c**t



Great game today...we were good in the 1st half but gave up 2 poor goals...the second being Rafael's fault for getting sucked in

Second half was awesome.. Utd at their best... free flowing attacking football

Penalty was a penalty and Webb got it spot on and did the right thing by giving the yellow and not the red... He got a chunk of Carrick after Carrick evaded him...

Great work by Wazza on the Left to score 2 and create the Ronaldo header which was a beaut

Special notice to Dimitar Berbatov... showed his class today... he must have sent players through at least 20 times... he was my man of the match

10/10

Ronaldo and Rooney were right up there as well and Tevez for bringing the energy and fight

I wouldnt be surprised if we use the fantastic 4 for the remainder of the season

now ah much as i am a barca fan  i does be able to own up when the ref give we one.

there is no way that a keeper can go into a one on one with a player like that and not touch the player unless the player jumps over the keeper. that much anyone  can gather. how  one determines if its a penalty or not is whether the keeper made contact with the ball or not, b4  he hits the player or the player hits him. how do u determine if the keeper makes contact  with the ball even though u r behind the play? the  movement of the ball . the player attempts to push the ball around the keeper yet the ball ends up rolling out of the 18 yard box perpendicular to where the contact occurred. (in simple terms out of the  attacking players path) its obvious the keeper touched the ball.
 if u want to say even though the keeper touched the ball it still was penalty then ok. talk done

Playing all four I think will help make Berbatov more affective; Roonay, Tevez and Ronaldo will provide the movement creating opportunites for passes from Berbatov. I hope Fergie does it. Who are Arsenal's wingers by the way?

now ah much as i am a barca fan  i does be able to own up when the ref give we one.

there is no way that a keeper can go into a one on one with a player like that and not touch the player unless the player jumps over the keeper. that much anyone  can gather. how  one determines if its a penalty or not is whether the keeper made contact with the ball or not, b4  he hits the player or the player hits him. how do u determine if the keeper makes contact  with the ball even though u r behind the play? the  movement of the ball . the player attempts to push the ball around the keeper yet the ball ends up rolling out of the 18 yard box perpendicular to where the contact occurred. (in simple terms out of the  attacking players path) its obvious the keeper touched the ball.   if u want to say even though the keeper touched the ball it still was penalty then ok. talk done

I went and download highlights for the specific purpose of watching dat penalty call...and...from de highlights i get...carrick touched the ball and sent it that way...and his foot in trailing caught on Gomes chest. Gomes just missed it.
 Check here...round 5:18.  (http://netload.in/dateizmvW98wsKF/Manchester_United_V_Tottenham_Hotspur_25.04.09_MotD_interviews_and_analysis_f54.avi.htm)

what is the over-under on a ManUre fan accepting that the penalty was not legitimate?

I think honest Manchester United fan is an oxymoron.

Unfortunately dat not true. I for one does call it honest. Which is much more than i could say for some of allyuh dat hate United so much dat allyuh doh miss a game. I hate chelsea too..buh yuh doh hear me stalking dey every move. De penalty was understandable. Buh nah.....fergie and dem buy de ref ent?

Harry fumes at blunder ref


Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp accused referee Howard Webb of making a "terrible mistake'' that robbed his team of victory over Manchester United and made it increasingly likely the Premier League title will remain at Old Trafford.

"The referee made a terrible mistake,'' said Redknapp. "The players can't believe it because it changed the face of the game. United were not going to win unless something like that happened.''

Redknapp challenged Webb after the final whistle, although he got nothing better than the offer of an apology if the FA Cup final referee had got it wrong.

"You should have technology,'' he said. "The fourth official should be watching the TV monitor and talking to the referee. The guy has not done it on purpose, it is just a bad decision but it was the turning point.''

Even Sir Alex Ferguson admitted United had benefited from a large slice of luck.

However, given that United were dumped out of the FA Cup by Everton last weekend after being denied a spot-kick when Danny Welbeck was sent flying by Phil Jagielka, the Scot is making no apologies.

"We were a bit fortunate but football is a funny game,'' said Ferguson.
"You get terrible decisions. We got one last week. You have to deal with them and get on with it. It was a fantastic performance from Berbatov. I don't think he gave the ball away once. He was our best player in the first-half and in the second he produced some wonderful moments.

I actually give Fergie credit where credit is due. This is the closest he will ever come to admitting that it was a shit call, and that is the most that you will get from a man who has a penchant for intimidating referees. There is a line between gamesmanship and intimidation, and Fergie gets away with the latter ... and it's not only haters that will say that. True Man U UNITED fans are not afraid to admit it.

... and in case yuh think I miss it, everytime the bullerman accusations rightfully fly at CRonaldo, you does fly to the man defence, as though it does resonate with you. Men done can't post while game going on, fanboys mussbe take a couple extra hours to recover from the daze when he rip off he shirt and fling it. Ah wonder if he even get a yellow card for that nonsense, but that type of behaviour eh important - is only Balotelli who have the attitude problem.

that penalty was a very terrible call against Spurs, and from a numerical standpoint, it didn't affect the outcome of the game, but as far as momentum is concerned, I think it was a contributing factor, but still not as much as Spurs' tactics of giving manu too much space to operate.  dem is my only issue wit this game.  Poor officiating once again in the EPL, particularly to the benefit, yet again, to one particular team.  I seeing some menus (plural for manu (fan)) on here reverting back to the penalty that was wasn't called in the FA Semi to want to proclaim how refs does make bad calls against dey team.  HA! Dey so convenient wit dey memory though, to forget that, for every one or two bad calls that go against manu, it have about TEN bad calls that DO go their way, whether at OT or any other venue.  If the numbers that add up between cronaldo diving for fouls/yellow cards/free-kicks in critical spots/penalties, scholes and his fits of madness that tend to go more un(der)punished than do and rooney and his fits of madness that go equally so, don't add up to my modest estimate (and these  are just the three MAIN culprits.  I didn't include "The official SAF guide to Referees' clock-management)....then nothing ever will.  The other 19 teams in the EPL added up together don't have things so nice.  Congrats, menus.  Allyuh have de EPL trophy tree straight.

United's Neville out of Champs League semifinalAssociated Press
MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Manchester United captain Gary Neville has been ruled out for two weeks with a foot injury, but the prognosis is better for fellow defender John O'Shea.

Tue., Apr. 28
FC Barcelona vs. Chelsea   

Wed., Apr. 29
Man United vs. Arsenal   
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE CENTRALBoth were injured in Wednesday's 2-0 victory over Portsmouth, which put the defending champion three points clear of Liverpool at the top.

Neville will miss both legs of the Champions League semifinal against Arsenal either along with domestic fixtures against Tottenham and Middlesbrough, manager Alex Ferguson said Friday.

O'Shea, however, is in contention to face Spurs on Saturday at Old Trafford. Right back Wes Brown may also be in the squad after coming through two reserve matches this week without any problems.

WEBB ADMITS MISTAKE
Ref admits Man Utd penalty was a mistake
By Soccernet staff
April 29, 2009



 Referee Howard Webb has admitted that the penalty which sparked Manchester United's five-goal comeback in their Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Saturday was a mistake.


The Tottenham players rage at referee Howard Webb after he awarded the penalty

With Tottenham leading 2-0 after 57 minutes and United needing a win to reclaim top spot in the league from title rivals Liverpool, Sir Alex Ferguson's men were awarded a penalty after Webb ruled that Spurs goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes had fouled Michael Carrick.

Television replays showed that the keeper managed to palm the ball away to safety before colliding with the midfielder.

Cristiano Ronaldo converted the penalty which proved to be the catalyst for United who went on to overwhelm Spurs - scoring five goals in 22 minutes - in scintillating display which sealed a 5-2 win and a return to pole position in the Premier League.

''I've looked at it again and I think it was a mistake,'' Webb told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. ''But we make these decisions honestly. It's not always easy to see the way the play pans out from pitch level.''

The referee who was selected as England's representative to referee in last summer's Euro 2008 championships added: ''I could see the Manchester United player touch the ball and saw him get clattered by the goalkeeper but didn't see the extra deviation from the goalkeeper's fingers touching the ball.

''I'm disappointed as I always strive for perfection. I'll look at the tape in detail later in the week and try to avoid it happening again in the future.

''I never want to have a negative impact on a game and I get no pleasure from not reaching the high standards we set ourselves.''

After the game, Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas criticised Webb's decision saying the referee ''crumbled under pressure.''

The Football Association have given Jenas seven days to explain his remarks, failure to do satisfactorily could see him hit with a disciplinary charge.

Jenas said: ''The atmosphere, the occasion, the importance of the match; a lot of factors take their toll when making decisions. One thing which struck me was that he didn't even think. It was like he'd already made his mind up when he came out for the second half that he was going to give something.

It is doubtful that Webb's acceptance that he made an error will have any bearing on Jenas's case.

Webb will get the chance to re-establish his credentials as England's best referee on Sunday when he takes charge of the highly-pressurised game between Reading and Birmingham City.

The match is crucial for both sides as it comes on the last day of the Championship season and could earn the winner automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Premier League - Webb admits penalty mistake
Eurosport - Wed, 29 Apr 14:44:00 2009

Referee Howard Webb has admitted he was wrong to award a penalty to Manchester United in their Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

(http://d.yimg.com/i//ng/sp/eurosport/20090429/25/302b4de29bc80fed149e141413729d6a.jpg)

The visitors were leading 2-0 when Webb ruled that Spurs goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes had fouled Michael Carrick after 57 minutes when television replays showed he had palmed the ball away to safety before colliding with the midfielder.

Cristiano Ronaldo converted the penalty and put United back into the game, which they went on to win 5-2 to return to the top of the table.

Webb told the BBC: "I've looked at it again and I think it was a mistake but we make these decisions honestly.

"It's not always easy to see the way the play pans out from pitch level."

Speaking to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, Webb added: "I could see the Manchester United player touch the ball and saw him get clattered by the goalkeeper but didn't see the extra deviation from the goalkeeper's fingers touching the ball.

"I'm disappointed as I always strive for perfection. I'll look at the tape in detail later in the week and try to avoid it happening again in the future.

"I never want to have a negative impact on a game and I get no pleasure from not reaching the high standards we set ourselves."

Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas criticised the decision saying that Webb "crumbled under pressure" and the player could now face disciplinary action from the Football Association over his comments.

The FA has given him seven days to explain his remarks after he was quoted as saying: "The atmosphere, the occasion, the importance of the match, a lot of factors take their toll when making decisions.

"One thing which struck me was that he didn't even think. It was like he'd already made his mind up when he came out for the second half that he was going to give something.

"I think it was a case of the referee crumbling under the pressure at Old Trafford really."

Webb will officiate at the Reading versus Birmingham City match on Sunday in the season's final round of Championship (second division) games. Both teams have a chance of earning automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Wigan Chairman Champions Steve Bruce For Manchester United Job
Dave Whelan believes his manager is the man to succeed Sir Alex...
 
There has long been speculation over whom is best equipped to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson once the iron-willed knight calls the curtain down on an illustrious career at Manchester United.


Wigan Atheltic chairman Dave Whelan has added Steve Bruce's name to the mixer, claiming United's apparent confidence in managers from the home nations could be beneficial to Bruce's claim to the throne.



"United don't seem to appoint foreign managers," Whelan explained to Sky Sports News. "I can't remember one they have appointed.

"Steve Bruce in my mind is the best replacement for Sir Alex. I'd hate to lose him but it will be wonderful for Steve and wonderful for United."

He continued by stating that Ferguson's retirement date may be pushed back further than initially anticipated.


"But it is all on when Sir Alex retire. He is so good. He looks better than ever.

"He has got that glint in his eye and he is looking like he is enjoying every minute of it. I hope he carries on for another three or four years."

Internazionale manager Jose Mourinho, and Manchester City boss Mark Hughes, have all been touted for the United hotseat.

David Moyes, though, may boost his own credentials with an FA Cup win at the end of Everton's campaign.

Sir Alex Ferguson is bullet-proof - he will not worry about Cristiano Ronaldo's histrionics 


By Oliver Holt 13/05/2009

 Mirror.co.uk

 
One interpretation of Cristiano Ronaldo’s absurd posturing on the Old Trafford touchline on Sunday was that it was a threat to Sir Alex Ferguson’s authority.

Well, let’s put that one right straight away.

Ronaldo may be a very fine footballer indeed but there’s nothing he can do, nothing he can say, no tantrum he can throw, no strop he can perform, that could affect the aura surrounding the Manchester United manager.

Standing on the touchline pouting like a diva isn’t going to do it and snatching a tracksuit top from an assistant and flinging it on the floor isn’t going to work either. He may be World Footballer of the Year but he hasn’t the power to destabilise Ferguson and never will have.

A win at Wigan tonight and a draw with Arsenal on Saturday will add yet another league title – his 11th – to Ferguson’s collection. To paraphrase the late BBC presenter Robin Day, why should United fans prefer a here-today-gone-tomorrow prima donna like Ronaldo over a man like Ferguson?

The time for challenging Ferguson’s authority passed a long, long time ago. Trust me, I should know. A few years back, in the midst of Fergie’s Kleberson, Djemba-Djemba, Rock of Gibraltar period, I suggested in a book he’d gone on too long.

Whoops-a-daisy. That ship has sailed. Ferguson could buy a couple of ring-tailed lemurs this summer and stick them up front with Wayne Rooney and I’d still back his judgment.

When he had won one Champions League trophy in 21 years at one of the world’s richest clubs, he was vulnerable to criticism. Now, he’s on the brink of winning his third and ending the argument about who is Britain’s most successful manager of all time, the man is bullet-proof. So when Ronaldo stands with his back to him on the touchline like a two-year-old, he just makes himself look like an utter fool.

The match against Manchester City was already won and Ferguson was paying Ronaldo a compliment by bringing him off to save his legs for the rest of the run-in.

Everyone else could see that, just like everyone else can see that even though Ronaldo deserves to be hailed the best player in the world, the biggest loser if he leaves this summer will not be Ferguson or United. Of course, they’ll miss him if he picks up his teddies and jets off to Real Madrid. But not as much as Ronaldo will miss them.

Ferguson has built a squad at United that could withstand the departure of any single player.

Ronaldo has been a massive contributor to the success but I’d still back United to win the title again next season, with or without him.

With Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov up front and strength in depth all over the pitch, they’re too strong simply to wither away.

And if Ronaldo goes, Ferguson will buy big to add another attacking option. It might be Franck Ribery or Karim Benzema. Whoever it is, it will ensure United remain a formidable force at home and in Europe.

The same might not quite be true of the man last seen stamping his foot on the Old Trafford touchline. Real Madrid may hold a sentimental attachment for him but that will soon wear off when Barcelona are sticking six past them.

Ronaldo will make them a better team but won’t be a remedy for their core weaknesses in defence and organisation. If he goes to Madrid, it may be a while before he sees a Champions League Final again.

So the next time Ferguson calls him to the touchline, Ronaldo might be better served behaving like a man rather than a child. And realising he needs Ferguson more than Ferguson needs him.

and he continued his impish ways today too...in the second half  of the game against Wigan, Tevez set him up for a nice bullet on top the box and Ronaldo hit one dotish shot overbar. Fergie was pissed and was bubblin up bad on de touch line, Ronaldo look at him from de pitch and like he mouth off "...whaz your problem...". I could never understand how men with so much talent on de field have such a piss poor attitude...
Ah have a feeling if / when he leaves for Real, Fergie will look at pullin in Ribery.

[/b]Manchester United are on the verge of signing Brazilian teenager Dodo in a £5 million deal.
 
By Telegraph staff
Last Updated: 9:27AM BST 13 May 2009

 Brazilian magic: Dodo will find compatriots in the Premier League Photo: AFP
The 17-year-old defender - full name Jose Rodolfo Pires Ribeiro Dodo - plays for Corinthians in his native Brazil, but reports suggest he will complete a move to Old Trafford in February 2010.

Dodo, who has a Portuguese background, holds an EC passport which means the proposed move will not get bogged down in red tape. And the player himself is looking forward to playing for the Premier League and European champions, who already have a number of Brazilians on their books, most notably the Da Silva twins, Fabio and Rafael, and Anderson.

Dodo, who is a member of the Brazil U17 national side, said: "As there are already some Brazilians in England, I suppose that I am going to get adapted easier.

"I have never played with the Fabio and Rafael, neither with Anderson, but it's good for me to have them near. Even Cristiano Ronaldo as he speaks in Portuguese.

"I returned from being on duty with the U17 national team and only had time to be with my parents for a few hours. I received the instructions to travel to England.

"Every player dreams to play in the national team and then be transferred to a European team. I am doing that.

"Next year I will join the first team of Manchester United. I am going to play next to the best players of the world."

My boy! There is only one Ryan Giggs!

Why Ryan Giggs feels this season is the best yet


Socks rolled down, shin-pads out, Ryan Giggs's legs reveal the cost of glory. His right shin is a shredded-to-ribbons mess, scarred with cuts and bruises sustained guiding the ball through hostile territory. Manchester United suffer for their beautiful art.
 
By Henry Winter, Football Correspondent
Last Updated: 10:01PM BST 15 May 2009

 Just champion: Ryan Giggs, who can win his 11th league winners' medal against Arsenal today, says he is delighted to have been voted PFA Player of the Year Photo: PA
As United search for the point against Arsenal today that brings an 18th title, and an 11th for Giggs, the really scary part for their rivals is their enduring toughness as well as their talent, their willingness to absorb the impact of an opponent's fury en route to goal. Sir Alex Ferguson and his players crave more: more challenges, more trophies.

Long acquaintance with victory podiums has simply deepened the hunger of competitors like Giggs. His story is United's story, an insight into the psyche of champions. "The first time I won the league [in 1993], I celebrated for a week,'' recalls Giggs, a sinewy 35-year-old sitting at Carrington, awaiting the cherished call for training.

Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United are made of right stuff"With the way it ended in Barcelona [snatching the Champions League in 1999], the buzz lasted ages. It was just a dream that we had been trying to do since we won the league. In Moscow last year, I had a few beers and was one of the first up to bed. I was thinking about next year, got to do back-to-back Champions Leagues, that's the challenge, no one has ever done it.''

Giggs believes United can dominate this era as Real Madrid, Ajax, Liverpool and AC Milan owned past decades. "We are definitely capable of that because of the [relatively young] age of the team. If we win it in Rome [against Barcelona] it will give us unbelievable confidence to do it again next season.''

Three in a row?! "I look for challenges – that's what drives me on. When we lose, it is a little easier to take because I come home, my daughter says something funny, and that's it, I just relax. But I am moody. I go through what I could have done better. I can't wait for the next game to put it right.

"A lot of people said I couldn't top last season, breaking the appearance record of Sir Bobby Charlton, scoring against Wigan [to win title] and the Champions League final, but it's been better this season. I have enjoyed this season more than any other.''

His peers voted him Player of the Year and he finished runners-up to Steven Gerrard in the writers' poll. "Personal awards come second to winning leagues but I was really pleased to get that PFA award – at 35. Over the last couple of weeks, I've got 'How have you won the PFA Player of the Year?' I got it at Middlesbrough. Just as I was taking a corner, the whole stand sang: 'Player of the year? You're having a laugh!' Brilliant! I scored straight after so I gave them a wave!

"I get opposing fans saying they respect me, which is great to hear. I was at Chester Races the other week, and a couple of people came up and said: 'We're Scousers, we're Liverpool fans but we respect you and the way you play'.''

United themselves generate more respect because of the intoxicating nature of their football, for their resilience and also because they are less confrontational than before. "The characters have definitely changed from the players in the past like Roy [Keane], Sparky [Mark Hughes], Peter Schmeichel, [Eric] Cantona,'' agrees Giggs.

"Wayne [Rooney] is a bit like that with his fiery attitude but it's a different sort of steely attitude we have got. Those players were all great footballers but when it went wrong, they could stick the foot in as well. We are more dependent on our footballing ability. But we are not a soft touch. We have tough players right through the spine of the team – Rooney, Scholesy, Vidic. There's a good team spirit, It's not a quiet team. No! Not with Gary [Neville] about!''

Thinking of Neville and Rio Ferdinand, Giggs argues that the dressing-room teems with captaincy-types. "There are a lot of natural leaders – and leaders among the young players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Rooney. Anderson could be. Because of his nature, his enthusiasm, everybody loves him.

"Ronaldo is a leader because of the way he plays. He gets respect because of what he has achieved in such a short space of time. He has every attribute to be the best player in the world. Ronaldo is a strong character which he needs with what he's gone through.

"Physically, he's unbelievable, strong, tough. I have seen the cynical tackles made on Ronaldo – worse than the tackles made 15 years ago. Cristiano takes more tackles than anyone else. His ankles are [battered]. He has also had a good apprenticeship. The first couple of years were quiet for him, and people were 'umming' and 'arring' [about whether he'd make it]. He worked hard on his game.''

Everyone at United works hard: the legacy of Cantona. "Eric would always stay out, practising shooting and we'd stay out with him. It's almost become second nature. The manager was always calling us in! He was worried we'd get injured booting too many balls, tiring ourselves out.''

The manager. Ferguson's astonishing hunger "filters down to the staff and the players'', Giggs observes. "He has so many qualities. His man-management is very, very good. Because he has that instant respect, when he says 'I'm not playing you this week, I'm saving you for another week' I trust him.''

Has Ferguson changed? "He doesn't go off his head as much as he used to! That's maturing. He's also happy with the players he has got over the last four or five years and the football we've been playing. Even when Chelsea won the league a couple of times [2005 and 2006], he had the patience to know this team will be good in a couple of years.''

Ferguson has also developed the team from the 4-4-2 to the more fluid 4-3-3. "The manager wanted to change it after the European Cup [of 99] and not to become too predictable. Back then, we were so used to playing 4-4-2. Now it [4-3-3] is second nature. Wayne can play upfront on his own, on the left. Cristiano can play anywhere. He's got the ability to play through the middle – he scores important goals. Where do you have your goalscorer?! Upfront! Maybe if he plays on the wing, people can pick him up more.

"It's a lot more flexible. Carrick, Fletch, Scholes, myself – we have so many personnel to do it. I think to myself: 'Have I always been a central midfielder?!' When I was quicker, I played just off the front a lot of times, off Ruud [van Nistelrooy] and Andy Cole, so playing more central is not strange to me.''

Giggs began as a flying winger, leaving right-backs with "twisted blood'' in Ferguson's great phrase. Not all. "Inter's Javier Zanetti was difficult to play against – tough, quick, strong, runs forward. So was Cafu, another nightmare. I was running back all the time. With 4-4-2 my job was to look after the right-back. If he got a cross in, it was my fault.

"I always found it hard against Lee Dixon. Experienced players always know when to close you down, when to let have you the ball. The first few minutes Dixon would let me know he was about, put his foot in, and get away with it! The next time I'd get the ball, I'd think: 'Is he going to do it again'?''

Giggs laments the passing of famous old arenas like Dixon's old Arsenal stamping ground. "The Emirates is nothing like Highbury. I like the old grounds, places where they test you. We never used to do well down at The Dell. I like atmospheres like Anfield and Elland Road, experiencing the ferocity of the fans towards you, the intense rivalry. We knew we had to perform. When I was younger, I used to get abuse off the Leeds fans, who sang things like 'There's only one spotty virgin'.

"I like the intense atmosphere where we are not just playing the team, we are playing their fans as well. I've never experienced anything like Galatasaray. Two hours before kick-off, we went out to have a look at the pitch and the stadium was packed! The chanting was brilliant: one side starts, then the other, then quiet, then all of them chanting! The players really enjoyed it. Before it was good, after it wasn't!'' (United's players ran the gauntlet of riot police and fans, who bricked their coach.)

Giggs will miss all this, the camaraderie, the pursuit of trophies. Yet he shows no sign of losing his edge, physically or mentally. "I am heavier, not as quick, but my body is more flexible through doing yoga. Rest is really, really important. After a game, I'm knackered. I go home and get into bed at 7pm, watch TV and have an early night.''

And the future? Management? Giggs pauses. He has begun acquiring his coaching badges. "When I did the course at Lilleshall last year, I was nervous. I was crap at the beginning but the more I did, the more I enjoyed it. People fall into management. You see Alan Shearer now – he will probably be there [at Newcastle United] for 10 years. Sparky fell into the Welsh job. I hear you get the bug. After playing, what do you do? You look for another challenge. Football's my life.''

Fergie thankful for Gunners helpby RivalsDM
Sir Alex Ferguson claims equalling Liverpool's record of championship wins was the last thing on his mind when he joined United in 1986.
     
The Merseyside giants had finished top on 18 occasions before Manchester United managed their first triumph under Ferguson in 1993.

At the time, it seemed like a seminal moment in itself. Little could Ferguson have imagined that 16 years later he would stand on the brink of matching the Anfield outfit, who he famously told he would "knock off their perch" when he first came south from Aberdeen.

United will not knock Liverpool off their perch by getting the point against Arsenal on Saturday that would see them collect an 11th Premier League.

However, it will be enough to let them shuffle up alongside, knowing one more big shove could tumble Rafael Benitez's men off altogether.

"I never even thought about moving level with Liverpool," said Ferguson.

"My first intention was to win one and break the stranglehold Liverpool had on the title.

"You don't think about how it would open the door in terms of what we see now. The big challenge was that first one."

Ironically it took Arsenal's assistance to prise away Liverpool's dominance of the domestic game.

In winning titles under George Graham in 1989 and 1991, the Gunners showed United the correct path to follow.

They could not quite make it in 1992. But 12 months later began an era of unparalleled success, and it has taken just 17 seasons to complete 11 championship wins, compared to the 18 Liverpool managed it in from 1973.

"We were a long way behind in terms of titles won," acknowledged Ferguson.
 
"But we were helped by Arsenal winning it a couple of times. That changed the picture a little bit."

Ironically, United are venturing into new territory on Saturday.

Of those last 11 successes, only one was completed in front of their own fans at Old Trafford.

And in 1999 it was very much a do-or-die encounter with Tottenham, in which they trailed before David Beckham and Andy Cole scored the goals that sealed the first part of that historic treble.

This time around, the Red Devils approach their date with destiny knowing they have another - at Hull next Sunday - in reserve should things go wrong.

Nevertheless, Ferguson is eager to get the job done immediately, to give his players the maximum preparation time for the Champions League final with Barcelona in Rome on May 27.


The desire to put on a performance for the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, who was at United's Carrington training ground this morning and will be in the director's box to watch his favourite team tomorrow is a bonus, as is the strength of United's opponents.

Arsenal may have suffered another fearful home battering by Chelsea since their own European dream was crushed by the Red Devils.

Yet Ferguson knows their presence should ensure no-one in his squad starts to think the job has already been completed.

"Arsenal are a threat," he said.

"They are a good side with great potential which you cannot dismiss.

"Without question they will attack us. They will not change the way they play.

"We expected two good games in the semi-final and we got them and that is the way it will be tomorrow.

"They have had a bit of criticism recently and they will want to register their abilities on a day when everyone expects Manchester United to win the title."

While Arsenal may well give a better account of themselves, few outside Anfield believe United will be denied now.

Rio Ferdinand's ongoing calf problem means he will join Bolt in the stands, but everyone else will want to be involved to launch the trophy presentation in style.

"I have always said I don't care where we win it," said Ferguson.

"It is unusual and strange that we have won it four times elsewhere but only done it once out of 10 at Old Trafford.

"Now we have another opportunity to win it in front of our own fans tomorrow. It would be nice to do it."

Manchester United crowned Premier League championsAssociated Press
Manchester United won a third title in a row Saturday with a 0-0 draw against Arsenal that produced the point required to clinch its record-equaling 18th championship.
   
When Alex Ferguson took over at Old Trafford in 1986 he declared he wanted to knock the then dominant Liverpool "off their perch," and his side has now matched Liverpool's title record.

"That was the target because they were the greatest side in the land," Ferguson said. "But I never thought we could get 11 titles - never in a million years."

The 67-year-old Scot said he had no plans to retire anytime soon.

"It makes you want to go on for ever," Ferguson said.

Ryan Giggs has been part of United's team for each of its 11 Premier League triumphs masterminded by Ferguson since the 1992-3 season.

"It's been a special time at the club since the manager took over and we've managed to win so much," Giggs said. "Hopefully we can carry on."

Giggs won't have long to wait for another medal. The Welshman can win a third European Cup - and deliver Ferguson's 26th major trophy with United - in the May 27 final against Barcelona.

The draw put United out of reach of second-place Liverpool, which is seven points behind and has two games to play.

"It was the longest 90 minutes in history," Ferguson said. "There was only one save in the match - it was a cautious match."

Despite a lackluster game, the final whistle set off a massive title celebration at Old Trafford as the team was presented with the Premier League trophy on the field, with the players hugging and spraying champagne on each other.

The trophy was carried onto the pitch by four soldiers who have just returned from a four-month tour of duty in Afghanistan.
And as the medals were presented and fireworks exploded, the rain that had lashed onto the pitch throughout the match cleared and Old Trafford was bathed in sunshine.

The title is Gary Neville's eighth and the 34-year-old captain immediately set his sights on next year.

"(Liverpool) pushed us really hard this season. Next season, we've got our work cut out to go and do it again," the defender said.

While powered this season by goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and top-quality performances from strikers Rooney and Carlos Tevez, United also had a rock solid defense which led to goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar setting a British record by going 1,311 minutes without conceding a goal.

United's players had a wobble in March, however, when they lost to Liverpool and Fulham before starting a winning streak that took it clear of its rivals.

The post-match focus was also on the players who might be leaving Old Trafford in the off season, most notably Tevez and Ronaldo, who was denied a transfer to Real Madrid last summer.

When Tevez was substituted in the second half he applauded the fans and seemed to wave goodbye.

Asked if he was leaving the club, the Argentina striker said in broken English: "Maybe goodbye... It's very difficult."

As for Ronaldo, the world player of the year was noncommittal when asked whether he was still eager to move on.

"The supporters screaming and singing your name it's amazing but the future you never know," he said.

Tevez has been flapping his gums a little to much, and acting like he is a damn victim-I think his approach is not going to help his cause.  Go already!


Manchester United chief executive David Gilll says he expects a deal for Carlos Tevez to be completed by early June despite the Argentinean saying he does not expect to be at Old Trafford next year.

Tevez's future has become a hot topic, with United fans urging the club to keep the striker following the end of his two-year loan spell this summer.

After winning the Premier League title over the weekend, Tevez accused the club of not showing him enough respect.

  “I know that I am not going to continue at Manchester United,” he said. "I feel that they have lacked respect towards me. It's not about whether they pay £5 million more or £5 million less, but I feel I have been badly treated.

“I've been here for two years and the directors have never come to speak to me. Not once have I had a meeting with them. Therefore, it's best that I leave the club so as not to clash with [manager] Alex Ferguson and the directors. Neither do I understand why I don't play in the team.”

Remaining focused on what stand to be his final two matches in a United shirt, the 25-year-old insisted he will not hold any talks or consider any offers until after the Champions League final on May 27.

“I've asked [adviser] Kia [Joorabchian] not to speak to me about offers during the next 10 days,” he said. “I want to concentrate only on the final matches that we have to play.

"Afterwards, I've got a month to take a decision and choose where to go."

Gill however, seems optimistic that United can strike a deal with Tevez’s owners by early June.

Speaking to BBC Five Live, he confirmed that club and representatives have met to discuss a deal worth in the region of £25 million.

“The actual situation will be cleared up in early June,” he said. “Carlos has done very well. We'd like him to stay but the actual economic situation needs to be clarified.”

Having agreed with Kia Joorabchian that negotiations should no longer continue through the press, Gill added: “It is an unusual situation. When we did our deal to acquire Carlos two years ago, his economic rights were owned by a company controlled by Kia Joorabchian. That's a feature of a lot of South American players.

"We have to deal with Kia Joorabchian - we paid a loan fee for two years, then there is a fixed fee we have to pay his company if we wish to take up our option to acquire Carlos, at which point we would own him 100 per cent in football terms, and any other club would deal with us.

"Whatever happens to him in the summer, that situation will be clarified. If he goes to another club in the Premier League, then that club would own him outright.”

Yeah but United agreed to the "overvalued fee" two years ago. It is not Tevez' fault that they now think it is too much and want to change the deal. In fact he has a right to be aggrieved.

I undertsand why United thinks the price is too high now, for a while this season it appeared that Tevez was always going to bench for Berbatov and 22 M is too much for a sub. Thisngs change since they made teh initial agreement but that is not his fault. United also knew what they were getting into with Joorabchian and his convoluted dealings back then. Yuh can't disagree with how he does his business now.

But overall, Tevez has shown real class. Didn't complain when being benched and hasn't been making noise in the media to distract the team. And his performances have been top notch. All of the recent interest is driven by his owner and the club.

Nah man smalls, yuh lashin' de man unfairly.

The man is legitimately voicing his view on certain things that are reasonable.  He has not acted like he is bigger than the club- his gracious exit out of the game this weekend, and his undying commitment and work rate on the field is testament to that.  He's proven himself to be an exemplary professional and he is within his rights to speak up about things that disappoint him....and he's managed to do so without coming off as disrespectful.

Vidic bags double award(PA) Monday 18 May 2009
Nemanja Vidic completed a personal double on Sunday as he was named Manchester United player of the year by both fans and his fellow players.

Vidic picked up both awards after a season in which his formidable partnership at the back with Rio Ferdinand has played a major part in helping United retain their league title. The Serbia defender was delighted at the recognition for his achievements this season. "It's a great night for me," he said. "I'm really surprised, but I'm enjoying it.

"In my career I have never really had individual awards," said Vidic. "I am honoured especially when I see the players who I play every day with. It's amazing to get this award. I'm very happy. Thank you. I developed here as a player. Thank you to the players and the coaching staff," he said.

"Since I came here three and a half years ago, I have progressed every year and I'm proud of that. I enjoy it here. I like being with the players and I'm very happy here," said Vidic.


It's amazing to get this award. I'm very happy. Thank you.

Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic


Team-mate Ryan Giggs has no doubt it was the right choice. "So many players have had a good season," he said. "But it has to be Nemanja for me. Consistently throughout the season he's been brilliant."

Cristiano Ronaldo, who won both awards last season, did not end the night empty-handed as he once again received the goal of the season prize for his stunning effort at Porto in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final.

Seventeen-year-old Federico Macheda, who burst onto the scene with the winner against Aston Villa on his debut, was named academy player of the year and James Chester clinched the reserve team prize.

Rafael Benítez says congratulations to Manchester United, but not their manager Alex Ferguson

Rafael Benítez's feud with Sir Alex Ferguson continued last night as the Spaniard refused to congratulate the Manchester United manager for winning the Premier League title. Benítez offered praise to United for their success but twice declined the opportunity to applaud Ferguson for his achievement as Liverpool secured a 2-0 victory at The Hawthorns that relegated West Bromwich Albion and secured second place.

Asked whether he would congratulate Ferguson in the wake of their 18th League title, Benítez, who had gone public with his grievances with the United manager in January with his infamous list of "facts", replied: "I will say congratulations to Manchester United." Not Sir Alex? "Ah, done well," said the Spaniard begrudgingly, "but I prefer to say congratulations to Manchester United; good club, big club."

It is protocol for the manager that finishes runners-up to send a letter of congratulations to his triumphant counterpart but Benítez gave little indication he will have a pen in his hand over the next few days when he was asked if he would write to Ferguson. "I have had normally to be polite and to respect the other manager at the end of the season. He has said a lot of things that I didn't like. I say congratulations to Man United because they have won and that's it."

Benítez saw his side cruise to a ninth win in 10 League games against Albion although the victory was overshadowed by an incident involving Jamie Carragher and Alvaro Arbeloa, when the central defender squared up to his team-mate and pushed him in the chest.

Benitez said: "Carragher and Arbeloa wanted a clean sheet so they were a little bit nervous. I think it's a positive message in terms of the mentality of the team. We wanted to show character and a winning mentality and to win and stay as close as possible to United. Arbeloa was going forward and then we had some problems in defence that we wanted to protect better because that's 20 clean sheets now." Carragher said: "It was something in nothing. It happened in the heat of the moment. We have kissed and made up. It's just one of those things that goes on from time to time. It's forgotten."


Fat...Spanish...Waiter.

Mourinho - Fergie will be best

Jose Mourinho feels that European glory for Manchester United on Wednesday will make Sir Alex Ferguson the 'greatest club manager'.

The Red Devils are set to face Barcelona in Rome next week in an eagerly-anticipated UEFA Champions League final.

Victory for United would see them become the first side to successfully defend the trophy in its current format, while also allowing them to add the continental crown to their Premier League and League Cup triumphs.

Ferguson's men have also added the Club World Cup trophy to their ever-growing list of achievements this season, with the Red Devils continuing to dominate both at home and abroad.

Their unrivalled success over the years is largely due to the tactical nous of their manager, and Inter Milan boss Mourinho is full of praise for the manner in which his Old Trafford counterpart goes about his business.

"He is a super manager and a victory or defeat in this moment of his career doesn't make him any better or any worse - he has had a great career," said the Portuguese.

Super team

"But of course if he wins on Wednesday it would make him the greatest club manager.

"Sir Alex has made a super team. Three Premier League titles in a row and two Champions league finals - that is really top.

"They have quality and experience, with Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney. They have absolutely everything as a team: strength, mentality, speed, magic, solutions.

"Beating Arsenal in the semi-finals (of the Champions League) didn't impress me too much. It is normal.  :devil:

"But three Premier League titles and two Champions League finals, you need no more words to explain how strong they are."

Ronaldo's heart is with United
Portuguese superstar remains fully committed to Red Devils

Cristiano Ronaldo insists he feels 'at home' at Manchester United and has no desire to leave the club.

Speculation continues to link the reigning World Player of the Year with a high-profile summer switch to Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants have denied having a pre-contract agreement in place with the Portuguese superstar, and United are unwilling to sell, but the rumours persist.

Ronaldo is hoping to lay the issue to rest once and for all, though, and has once again reiterated his undying dedication to the Red Devils cause.

He explained in the News of the World: "Manchester United is my home. My heart is here. This is where I want to play.

"The boss (Sir Alex Ferguson) believes in this team and so do I. Ever since I joined United he has been like a second father to me.

"This is my home now. I think even when I say my heart is here people are going to speak up and make things up. But this is where I want to play.

"We are part of an era that can go down in history for the way we are playing and for the trophies we are winning.

"The boss believes in this team and so do I. And this is where I want to be. Manchester United is now my house."
Learning

Ronaldo continued his praise for Ferguson by claiming the experienced coach has played an integral role in his development into a world-class talent.

"He is two different people and they have both helped me become who I am today," he added.

"Firstly he is probably the most knowledgeable football coach in the world. I learn from him every day.

"No matter how good I become, I know he is a man who will always be able to teach me that little bit more.

"I don't get tired of learning from him because I know every bit of advice he gives me will make me a better player.

"The second person he is, is a father to me. Ever since I joined Manchester United, he has been like a second father to me.

"I don't just respect him, I have the affection for him a child has for his father.

"When he gives me advice that is non-football, I listen because it will make me a better person."

 The Independent

Dimitar Berbatov: 'If someone has great qualities, they don't need effort'

His attitude wins few admirers, but Dimitar Berbatov won't change for Wednesday's big match. He tells Sam Wallace about smoking, his work rate, and why he would rather leave penalties to others

Tuesday, 26 May 2009
Is it Andy Garcia he looks like? Or is there a touch of the Rudolph Valentinos about Dimitar Berbatov as he makes his way across the dining room of the Manchester United academy for a reluctant interview? Whoever it is, there is definitely the brooding intensity of the moodiest of Hollywood leading men about United's £30m striker.


Berbatov, 28, is the real enigma of United's season, a man whose performances have divided their fans, whose 14 goals are seen as a poor return and whose position in the starting XI against Barcelona in the Champions League final in Rome tomorrow is by no means assured. And, yes, as he walks over to the group of reporters waiting for him, Berbatov – as is his way – takes his own sweet time.

The major criticism of the Bulgarian international? That the bloke just does not even look like he is trying. Certainly not amid the all-action styles of Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez. But he has an answer for that, delivered as insouciantly as he plays. "You know," he says, "when someone has great qualities sometimes they don't have to put much effort into things. Sometimes the things I do look effortless but it's not like that. It's very difficult, but because of my style of play I make it look easy."

Delivered like the true maestro. What Berbatov is saying is that the things that most footballers find such an effort are as simple to him as scratching his ear or lighting a cigarette. Which takes us on a brief digression: having been photographed off duty with a cigarette in his mouth, is he a smoker? "No, sometimes when you see a picture I just pretend to smoke to make me more of a cool guy."

Already you are getting the picture: Berbatov is about as hard to pin down in conversation as he is when, in his best moments, he gets the ball at his feet and creates the impression that endless time and space are at his disposal. He comes across as something of a tortured soul and his style of self-appraisal is ruthlessly honest. His family history in Bulgaria was tough, and not just because of the relative lack of wealth.

But what about the season so far? He has scored 14 goals compared to 23 last year for Spurs, yet he has finished with the most assists in the team. "Of course I can do a lot better," he says. "But in the end it's only important what the boss is going to say to me, if he is happy or not. If he says he is not, then I need to work to improve so I can be better next season.

"When people see my name they see goals. I need to score more goals even though I don't play in my usual position. It's difficult to say to people that I enjoy making goals. My main aim is to score as many goals as possible and help the team to win the title again next year.

"There is always pressure. I am a realistic type of guy. I am my biggest critic. I know that when United pay a lot of money for a player the expectation will be higher, sometimes it's even ridiculous. I am used to that and I know everyone is expecting even more from me.

"I read in the paper that the most useful guy for the team was me. It made me feel good. I didn't score as many goals as I wanted and people are maybe a little disappointed with that, but in the end I made the most assists. I helped my team-mates to score and I will continue to do that. That's the most important thing for the team because we need to win the league every year."

Neither is he prepared to change his style, saying the only person who can make him do that is the man he refers to simply as "Boss". But Sir Alex Ferguson has a big decision to make before tomorrow night as to whether he picks his usual 4-5-1/4-3-3 formation with Berbatov at the point of the attack or Cristiano Ronaldo or even Tevez. Berbatov knew that even a star as luminous as he is would not be guaranteed a starting place at United.

"I was jealous [at Spurs] because they [United] were lifting every cup in football," he says. "I thought, 'Come on, I just want to be part of this team and feel what it is to lift the cup.' So today I am here and if the boss says, 'OK, Berba, you are going to play,' I will try to give my best."

He does not look very happy on the pitch – is he? "Of course I am enjoying it. It would be stupid if I was laughing all the time. I really enjoy myself. When we won the title I was in the locker room and so happy. I don't smile all the time but I smile inside. I am the happiest guy around, trust me. I don't like to show my emotions too much."

Berbatov has played in a Champions League final before, in 2002 for Bayer Leverkusen, who eliminated United on away goals in the semi-finals before losing 2-1 to Real Madrid in the final. Then 21, he came on in the 39th minute of the final and had a chance to equalise at the end but saw his shot saved by the substitute goalkeeper Iker Casillas. "This memory haunts me," he said. "If I can make it right this time it will be good."

Talking of haunting memories, what about that dreadful penalty against Everton in the FA Cup semi-final shoot-out last month, the one that made it look like he did not care? "I'm not angry because I am my biggest critic," he says. "I know what I did wrong. I go home and try to get over things. Obviously, it's very difficult when you make a mistake and everyone is trying to attack you. You try to be strong.

"It hurt a lot. I am not sure I would take a penalty [in Rome]. Let's hope it's not going to get to that because it's difficult. I am the new guy in the team. When you make a mistake people sometimes go straight for the new guy. I am not sure there are going to be penalties anyway."

In his defence, Berbatov pointed out that his penalty for Spurs against Chelsea in the Carling Cup final last year was identical but that one went in. Mournfully he answers questions about his childhood in Bulgaria. "It's not like I'm the only guy in the world who went through that," he says. "After the Communists were gone it was easier to go out of the country. You need to be a little lucky, work hard and trust yourself. I had so many difficult moments. I know I will have some more but you keep on fighting."

When talk turns to the great Bulgaria team of the 1994 World Cup finals, he is asked what it did for the Bulgarian people. "At last people knew we existed," he replies, glumly. Cheer up, Berba, you might even score the winner tomorrow, but if he does don't expect him to put the cup on his head or take part in any daft celebrations. It is just not his style.

Sir Matt remembered

One of English football's greatest-ever managers was born 100 years ago this Tuesday (26 May) in the Scottish village of Orbiston.

A former Manchester City and Liverpool player, Matt Busby accepted the position of United manager on 19 February 1945, and then joined the club full-time on his demobilisation from the armed forces in October 1945.

Together with his loyal assistant manager Jimmy Murphy, Busby created a team good enough to win the FA Cup in 1948 and to challenge for the League Championship. After finishing runners-up four times, Busby's men won the title in 1952.

Far from being blinded by their success, Busby and Murphy had the foresight to plan ahead and prepare for the day when their first great team would need replacing. The club's scouting system was expanded and reorganised, soon yielding a young team that won the title again in 1956 and 1957 and reached the FA Cup final in 1957. This young team was christened the 'Busby Babes.'

Busby trailblazed the way for English clubs by entering the European Cup in 1956/57 - initially against the wishes of the Football League. United reached the semi-finals, losing to eventual winners Real Madrid.

The following season, 1957/58, bristled with promise and United were still challenging in all three competitions by February when disaster struck. On 6 February 1958, the aeroplane bringing the team home from a European Cup match against Red Star Belgrade crashed after refuelling in Munich. Twenty-three people were killed, including eight of Busby's players and three club officials.

Busby almost lost his life as well - he was twice given the last rites while lying gravely ill in a German hospital. Fortunately, he survived and returned to Manchester 71 days after the crash. Taking up the managerial reigns again in August 1958, Busby began to rebuild United, bringing in some big money purchases to add to his homegrown talent. The new group of players reached the FA Cup final in 1963 and beat Leicester City 3-1 to claim the club's first trophy after Munich.

League titles followed in 1965 and 1967, giving Busby the chance to conquer Europe in the following seasons. In 1965/66, United reached the semi-finals, just as they had done in 1956/57 and 1957/58. But in 1967/68 they went further, to the final at Wembley where they faced Portuguese side Benfica.

On another night of great emotion, United triumphed 4-1 after extra-time to win the European Cup. It was a fitting tribute to the players and staff killed and injured 10 years before and was Busby's crowning achievement as United manager. Busby retired at the end of the following season, but stayed on as general manager while Wilf McGuinness became the man in charge of the team on a day-to-day basis. The new arrangement lasted little more than a year - on 28 December 1970, Busby was invited by the Directors to return to his old job and replace McGuinness until the end of the season.

A respected figure throughout his career, Busby was awarded the CBE in 1958. Ten years later, was knighted following United's European Cup triumph. In 1993 Warwick Road North, the road which runs past Old Trafford, was renamed Sir Matt Busby Way in honour of the man described as 'Mr Manchester United'.

When, after a short illness, Sir Matt died on 20 January 1994, thousands of people lined the streets of Manchester and similar numbers of shirts, wreaths, pictures and scarves were laid in tribute at Old Trafford. A bronze statue of Sir Matt was unveiled at the stadium on 27 April 1996, as a permanent memorial to the man who epitomised the club.

Five years after Busby's death, United won the European Cup for the first time since 1968. Poignantly, the date of that triumph for Sir Alex Ferguson's side, 26 May 1999, would have been Matt's 90th birthday.

Manchester United have been given special dispensation by UEFA to turn one half of Rome's Olympic Stadium into a stunning tribute to the late Sir Matt Busby before next Wednesday's Champions League final against Barcelona.

After discussions with European football's governing body, Sir Alex Ferguson and his players will walk out before the game to be greeted by a 16,000-piece mural covering the whole of the Curva Nord that will pay tribute to Busby, who would have been 100 years old the day before the final.
Pat Crerand, left, and George Best hold the European Cup with Matt Busby after United's 1968 European Cup triumph

The mosaic - held up by United's travelling fans - will spell out 'For Sir Matt' and will include a stunning portrait of the man from whom current United manager Ferguson and his players have always taken much of their inspiration.

It is destined to become one of the lasting images of a final that could yet see United become the first team to defend the trophy in the competition's modern form.

Last night United chief executive David Gill confirmed the plan, which came courtesy of the Stretford End Flags Group.

Gill said: 'We wanted to do something to mark Sir Matt's 100th birthday and we were approached by the fans with an idea that would recognise the role he had played in the club's unique place in Europe.
Legend: Sir Matt Busby pictured with the European Cup in 1968

'Alex liked the idea straight away. The mosaic will remind millions of people around the world what a great man Sir Matt was.'

Busby won the club their first European Cup in 1968 and died in 1994. United won the Cup for the second time on what would have been his 90th birthday, May 26, 1999.

He was manager of United for 24 years - retiring in 1969 - and was recognised as the greatest boss the club had ever had until Ferguson began piling up the trophies. United have invited Busby's son Sandy and daughter Sheena to be the club's guests in Rome and attend a dinner with their directors on Tuesday.

Sandy Busby said: 'It's going to be really heart-rending when the mosaic is lifted up, and I'm sure there are going to be a few tears from my sister and myself.

'My dad would have been so proud and pleased. He was a sentimental man and he would be absolutely delighted that the fans still remember him with such affection and still sing songs in his honour. But this is something else - he will be the proudest man in heaven.'

Gill said: 'We wanted to do something to mark Sir Matt's 100th birthday and we were approached by the fans with an idea that would recognise the role he had played in the club's unique place in Europe.
Legend: Sir Matt Busby pictured with the European Cup in 1968

'Alex liked the idea straight away. The mosaic will remind millions of people around the world what a great man Sir Matt was.'

Busby won the club their first European Cup in 1968 and died in 1994. United won the Cup for the second time on what would have been his 90th birthday, May 26, 1999.

He was manager of United for 24 years - retiring in 1969 - and was recognised as the greatest boss the club had ever had until Ferguson began piling up the trophies. United have invited Busby's son Sandy and daughter Sheena to be the club's guests in Rome and attend a dinner with their directors on Tuesday.

Sandy Busby said: 'It's going to be really heart-rending when the mosaic is lifted up, and I'm sure there are going to be a few tears from my sister and myself.

'My dad would have been so proud and pleased. He was a sentimental man and he would be absolutely delighted that the fans still remember him with such affection and still sing songs in his honour. But this is something else - he will be the proudest man in heaven.'

Thanks for the great years at the club.... massive 3 seasons from 06-09...got us back to the top

but we cant deny him his dream any longer.. thanks for the 80 million and good luck at Madrid

Viva Ronaldo

Title: Re: The Stretford End- Home of the Champions
Post by: Small Magician aka Wazza on June 11, 2009, 01:18:59 PM
Ok folks..time to rebuild

Ronny is off for 80 mill...
(http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e7/ruud1000/thankyouronaldosig.jpg)

Replacements?

Ronaldo is a massive loss... He scores goals and he is also one of the best players in the world..irreplaceable if you ask me..No1 can match him in key moments such as changing games...he can score with his head, both feet, free kicks, tap ins , penalties

If Tevez wants to leave due to being on the bench he could f**k off... but if his head is right and he wants to be loyal then we can buy him for the 25 million

Then we go to the wings... Park and Nani are our 2 wingers left..as well as newboy Tosic but he'll be a fringe player... Nani has to step it up this season and Park too

Fergie's not going to f**k around so expect two wingers... A.Valencia of Wigan seems to be joining soon.. He is big fast and a goal scoring threat.. he is settled in the EPL.. 15-18 million pounds...

F.Ribery will be the big name signing if f**king Madrid dont get too him first... Anywhere between 32-40 mill for him

that's the 3 there for me... If Tevez f**ks off then I would have gone with D.Villa but guess where he is heading

So i'll go with maybe Benzema of Lyon or Edin Dzeko of Woflsburg..a personal wish of mine... other big name strikers that can be linked if Tevez leaves are : Zlatan..Huntelaar..Eto'o.

Let the games begin

Ferguson and Frost unite for property venture
By Daniel Thomas in London

Published: July 3 2009 23:34 | Last updated: July 3 2009 23:34

Sir Alex Ferguson, manager of English football team Manchester United, is to join forces with the television star Sir David Frost in a £1bn ($1.6bn) property venture backed by Middle Eastern investors that aims to snap up real estate at bargain prices.

In the latest celebrity business tie-up and following news of Simon Cowell’s entertainment venture with the British retail billionaire Sir Philip Green, the English premier league manager and the broadcaster are to drum up support for commercial property deals across Europe in the belief the market is near the bottom of a prolonged slump.

Their new investment company, aAim Capital Finance, has received commitments of more than £1bn from Gulf investors to buy property in Europe. The launch of the company marks the resurrection of the team including Sir Alex and Sir David that was behind aAim Group, an asset manager that saw about €2bn ($2.8bn) of properties under management go into administration last year after Bank of Scotland withdrew from a funding agreement.

Sir Alex said: “The credit crunch has undoubtedly hit everyone involved in commercial property as evidenced by the recent announcements from Land Securities and others writing down their current values.

“I continue to be confident in a recovery on the real estate front and am sure that the aAIM people will flourish again with their knowledge and adaptability to changing situations.”

Sir Alex and Sir David are expected to do a road show. Sir David has taken the deputy chairmanship. He described aAim Capital Finance as “a new dawn in the property sector”.

long time...

Tevez and Ronaldo out as the major departures...Owen,Valencia and Obertan in...as well as Diuof who will join in January..

Fergie says no more signings but you never know with him.. I personally think we need 1 more..an attacking mid who can probably play on the wing if needed....David Silva,Van der Vaart,Ronaldinho?

Douglas Costa may be on his way as weekend reports from credible media sources in the UK report that we will pay 7.5 million pounds which can rise to 18 million over the next 5 seasons....he is 18 so I cant see him coming in as a saviour...but one for the future if we get him


I like the Owen buy as I've been calling it since Ruud left... very happy with him...English..29..class..goalscorer.... and it will allow Wazza and Berba to be the 1st choice with Owen understanding his role...and he could def start if he scores alot which he will..so it is good competition..Macheda Welbeck as the youthful strikers and new boy Diouf in January..  Giggs,Nani and Obertan can all play upfront if needed too


let the games begin

Michael Owen opened his account with the winning goal on his debut as Manchester United defeated a Malaysia XI 3-2.

The England striker, picked up by Sir Alex Ferguson on a free transfer after his contract with Newcastle expired, stepped off the bench to spare the Red Devils' blushes in the opening game of their Far East tour.

United looked to be cruising to a routine victory as they eased into a 2-0 lead in front of almost 100,000 fans in Kuala Lumpur's Bukit Jalil Stadium, only to allow their hosts to draw level.

Owen started among the substitutes as Ferguson began life without Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez by pairing Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov in attack.

And the duo combined to open the scoring in the eighth minute as Rooney lifted the ball into the roof of the net from close range after the Bulgaria international had been denied by goalkeeper Mohammed Farizal Marlias.

Rooney then turned provider midway through the first half as he threaded an expert ball through the Malaysian defence which Nani slotted home.

But their lead was halved moments before the interval when Mohammed Amri Yahyah fired home a stunning long-range effort from outside the box which left stranded goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar floundering.

Fergsuon's men were rocked at the start of the second period when an error by substitute goalkeeper Ben Foster allowed Amri Yahyah to roll the ball into an empty net and bring the scores level.

And it was left to Owen to emerge as the hero on his debut as he calmly slotted home from the edge of the box with time running out after Darron Gibson's through-ball had initially been cut out by Marlias.
http://www.skysports.com/football/match_report/0,19764,11065_3148181,00.html

Michael Owen has revealed that his switch to Manchester United has made him feel 21-years-old all over again.

The former Newcastle United striker netted on his Red Devils debut on Saturday following his free transfer switch.

Owen is delighted to be at Old Trafford and feels that his new club will help him return to the England squad.

The 29-year-old has won 89 caps for England and scored 40 goals but has played only once under manager Fabio Capello.

"I feel like I did eight years ago," said Owen.

"There are so many players on my wavelength - world-class players. I just know this move is going to be fantastic for me.
Exciting

"When you sign for Manchester United there are that many things you think about; the players alongside you, playing at Old Trafford, the men who are going to create chances for you.

"Then you wake up the following morning and realise you could win the league or the UEFA Champions League.

"It just goes on and on. It is a very exciting prospect."

He added: "I have never given up on England.

"I have been in every preliminary squad before it is pared down. I have had a letter every time. I know from that the manager is keeping an eye on me."

Post by: Small Magician aka Wazza on July 23, 2009, 02:54:45 PM
After staying mute since the end of the season, Sir Alex Ferguson held his first major media briefing on Monday in Malaysia. Here's what he had to say...


SAF on the summer...
"This particular summer defies all logic in terms of the credit crunch. You'd expect a lot of clubs to draw in their horns but, no, it's accelerated. Due mainly to a couple of clubs, of course, namely Real Madrid and Manchester City."

SAF on whether United should be considered favourites for the title...
"I don't really know, to be honest with you. I'd like to see the betting."


SAF on who will challenge United for their title...
"Manchester City are getting all the back page stories and they will hold that position for the rest of the season because there is a lot of interest in what they have done and a lot of speculation about whether it is going to work. But I cannot look at Manchester City as our main competitors. Liverpool and Chelsea are our main competitors. There is no doubt about that."


SAF on which of the Big Four is under the most pressure from Man City...
"Arsenal have got the biggest test to be where they want to be, I think. I know that Arsene Wenger doesn't have any money, I know that. I think that selling Adebayor - well, whether he can use that money is another question. There seems to be evidence that he can't use the money, I don't know. I think they're struggling cash-wise. It's a big test for Arsenal."


SAF on pursuing Carlos Tevez...
"In my opinion I didn't think he was worth £25million, that's just my judgment, maybe I'm wrong. The fans quite rightly have their heroes, and I respect the fans so I was happy to go along with a deal as long as it was the right deal. Our success is down to the fans and their support, we need them when we are away from home to the likes of Fulham and Arsenal. But simply he was not worth £25m."


SAF on City's pursuit of John Terry...
"It's understandable, given the money they have. They made their intentions known by buying Robinho for all that money and by signing Bellamy, Santa Cruz, Barry and now Adebayor. They are not stopping, but if I was in City's shoes, with all that kind of money, then I would have a go at that myself. I think it's sensible. For some reason they must have known that he was interested. I'm sure there have been plenty of phone calls going on."


SAF on Man City's prospects of breaking into the top four...
"If you analyse City as a team, you'd say: 'Well, what's their best team?' and 'Where would that go?' And you'd have to think they'd still struggle to get into the top four, really. It would be hard for them to get into that top four, I think so."


SAF on whether City will finish in the top four...
"I am not saying they won't do it. I am just saying they would find it extremely difficult. It is a tough top four that. Aston Villa almost managed to break through but they tapered off because they were worn down by having such a small squad."


SAF on the challenge ahead for Mark Hughes...
"They have bought a lot of high profile players but they have 10 strikers. That is a hell of a lot. I have not spoken to all the managers but the one or two I have are saying "Who are they going to leave out?". How do you tell players they are not even going to be travelling to London? How does he pick a team? We are all interested."


SAF on what Man City's spending spree means for the likes of Harry Redknapp and the Manager of Aston Villa...
"It's a good point. We are protected here at United by our titles. But expectation on them will be exactly the same as last year. Their fans will expect them to challenge and that's difficult for them against that kind of spending. But they are good managers. They know their jobs. Irrespective of cash, they will still make a challenge."


SAF on losing Cristiano Ronaldo...
"There's no doubt he's a huge loss. I think it's a challenge for us. It won't be the same without Ronaldo. It can't be. Without question, in my mind, he is the best player in this world of ours. By absolutely miles. He is streets ahead of Messi, streets ahead of Kaka. Look at his figures. They are unbelievable. The attempts he has on goal, the attacks into the penalty box, his positions, headers, shots... it's unbelievable."


SAF on why Ronaldo went ...
"I had a good chat with the boy about it. He had made up his mind about it. Last year he was begging me and this year it was a sensible discussion. I felt it was right. I told him I'd let him go on one condition and that was that we got the biggest fee ever for a player. And he said: 'Right, that will do me...'"


SAF on Ronaldo's future...
"His best is to come yet because he is just 24 years old. I'll be very proud because we had a part to play in it. He came to the right club at the right part of his career. He appreciates that. And he may come back, you never know...Sometimes it just happens. He loved United, he loved the club. If you look back at the six years he had with us, he never missed training."


SAF on how United will line up this season without Ronaldo...
"We will shape it differently. We'll be more compact in midfield because he [Ronaldo] was a bit loose in his defending. We'll be more compact, but we also have the increasing maturity of players like Darren Fletcher. Owen Hargreaves will come back, Anderson will improve, Nani will improve, Rooney will improve. I think they've got to improve, the young players, and we expect them to improve. I think Dimitar Berbatov think Dimitar Berbatov will have a terrific season, too."


SAF on why he made a move for Michael Owen...
"He is worth the risk. Sometimes you have a punt, a bet or a gamble. You just start to think, 'These bloody transfers, we can carry that, we can carry Michael Owen.'"


SAF on his plans for Owen...
"I won't ask him to play every four days. I might ask him to play every 10 days."


SAF on United's next hero...
"Macheda is top drawer, a hero in the making, just as Cristiano was. It is hard to believe he is just 17. We probably need to check his birth certificate because I reckon he is at least 28. He is a player all right - and tough as old boots. He can look after himself. He does not have the lightning reactions of Ronaldo but he is quick around the box and he has an eye for goal."


SAF on when we'll see the best of Wayne Rooney...
"There will be an expectation about Wayne Rooney this season purely because he is English. Without question he is the main striker that England's hopes will be pinned on at the World Cup, so that is where the expectation is all coming from. But I would like to see the boy develop his game in a lot of departments. He is 23 now. You will get the maturity when he gets to 25. Then there will be a more consistent nature to his game."


SAF on considering signing Petr Cech before he moved to Chelsea...
"I watched him myself twice, and I thought, 'nineteen years old, he's a bit young'. But he was in the national team by the time he was 20. Looking back now, he's maybe made about 10 mistakes in six years...at the time I was looking for someone to replace Peter Schmeichel."


SAF on United's interest in signing Benzema...
"He is tough, has a good physique, a good goal scoring record, so it was worth going a wee bit extra for him because of his age. But when it went to £42 million, it was beyond his value. We went to £35 million and I think that was fair."


SAF on whether United tried to sign Frank Ribery...
"No. We explored it in a nice, quiet way when David Gill was at one of his meetings with them in March. They told him, 'absolutely no chance' and the one thing you."


SAF on the Champions League final ...
"I know exactly what went wrong, but I'm not going to get into it. We threw it away, I will say that. I'm not getting into it at all. It's not even worth talking about.


SAF on how long he will continue...
"No decisions made."

Fergie writes off Reds
United boss expects Blues to be main title rivals

Sir Alex Ferguson believes Chelsea will provide the greatest threat to Man Utd this season, not Liverpool.

The Red Devils boss is hoping to lead his side to a fourth consecutive Premier League title, and knows competition for the crown will be fierce.

Liverpool pushed United all the way last season, eventually finishing just four points off the pace.

They are expected to challenge again in the 2009/10 campaign, but their chances of tasting top-flight glory have been all but written off by the manager of their fiercest rivals.

Ferguson insists Chelsea, under the guidance of new coach Carlo Ancelotti, are causing him greater concern heading into the new season and claims Liverpool will struggle to replicate their heroics of last term.

"It will be hard for them to match last season, let alone improve on it. Other teams will know more about them," Ferguson told The Sun.

"Liverpool had probably their best season for 20 years and still finished four points adrift.

"It has to be Chelsea as the main threat. Ancelotti will change how they play."
Improving

Ferguson has admitted that the summer sale of Cristiano Ronaldo and loss of Carlos Tevez will see him adopt a new approach this season, but he insists he has the talent at his disposal to counter the departures of two key members of his squad.

"People have misread our situation and they have under-estimated our ability to improve players. That is an area where we have proved successful in the past," he added.

"We are expecting a lot from (Jonny) Evans, (Danny) Welbeck, (Darron) Gibson, (Federico) Macheda and the Da Silva brothers.

"And Nani and Anderson have already shown good things, but they will improve this season.

"We will miss Ronaldo's goals, that's obvious.

"But (Dimitar) Berbatov will do well this year. And (Wayne) Rooney and (Michael) Owen are both capable of getting 20 goals, so we've got plenty of options."

I don't think is a big blow, cause God help us if we can't win without VDS. Plus it will give the Foster an opportunity to stake his claim. Best case scenario Foster lives up to the hype and VDS does not play as much.

I am actually more excited about the side this season than last year. The team looks faster and hungrier with more youth coming thru. It also appears that the team will be playing a trapping style trying to deny the opposition time and space while creating chances. I think the team defence will be better which will also create more chances to strike on offense. The positive thing and difference between Valencia and Ronaldo is that Valencia will hug the wing and thereby spreading the field whereas Ronaldo's tendency to drift in made the field narrower taking away from the width. Lord Wrigley's ability to put players in situations that match their strengths and therefore succeed is second to none in the EPL. United has what Chelski, Liverstool and Arsenull lack; wingers!
Let the games begin!

Agent: No Barca switch for Vidicby RivalsDM

Nemanja Vidic's agent has moved to reject claims he suggested the Manchester United defender is interested in a 'dream' move to Barcelona.


The 27-year-old Serbia international has impressed since arriving at Old Trafford from Spartak Moscow in 2006 and his great displays has led to speculation that several European clubs are interested in securing his services.

Barca have been mooted as possible suitors for Vidic, and quotes emerged from the player's agent intimating that he would be keen on a deal.

Paolo Fabbri was reported to have told Catalan radio station RAC-1 and El Mundo Deportivo: "It would be a dream for Vidic to play for Barcelona. He would be delighted to join them, as he wants to play in La Liga.

"We have to take a close look at the situation. But things are complicated at the moment. Manchester United have just lost Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez, and they do not want to lose another important player."

However, Fabbri has since denied he made such comments and has instead insisted Vidic is settled at Premier League champions United.

"This is not true," he said. "I never said these things. Nemanja is happy in Manchester. If Barcelona do make an offer for him, then it is up to United to make a decision."

Manchester United line up shock swoop for former Chelsea star Arjen Robben
By Christopher Davies
Last updated at 11:51 AM on 25th August 2009

 
Manchester United could make a shock move for former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben.
The Holland star is out of a favour at Real Madrid and is eyeing a return to the Barclays Premier League.
 Flying Dutchman: Arjen Robben has been in top form for Real
Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted that he will not sign any more players this summer - but he may be tempted with a move for £25million-rated Robben.
 Temptation: Sir Alex Ferguson
He has been outstanding in pre-season games for Real but coach Manuel Pelligrini is having trouble accommodating him with new arrivals Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Karim Benzema.
Robben was close to joining United before he signed for Chelsea from PSV Eindhoven in 2004 and would provide the speed and goals neither Antonio Valencia nor Nani can offer.
Ferguson still has most of the £80m they received from Real for Ronaldo.

That would be a bad move by Madrid... I honestly rate a fully fit Robben (in current/recent form) as more deadly in attack than the present day Kaka.

Premier League Preview: Tottenham Hotspur - Manchester United
Pace-setting Spurs face stiffest test of season so far…


Saturday September 12, Kick-Off: 17:30 BST
White Hart Lane, London


The real deal?

Tottenham's storming start to this league campaign, which has seen them win all four of their games, couldn't be more different to the abject opening sequence they put together in 2008/09, under the ill-fated leadership of Juande Ramos.

Most of the credit for this new-found swagger goes to manager Harry Redknapp, who has instilled a team spirit into a group of players that previously had failed to gel. Up front, Jermain Defoe – ever the confidence player – is showing the sort of sharpness that makes you wonder why he was ever less than first-choice at Spurs, while the other senior strikers – Robbie Keane, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko – offer a useful blend of physiques and playing styles. The sense of balance is just as obvious in midfield, where Aaron Lennon and Luka Modric flank the engine room of Wilson Palacios and Tom Huddlestone/Jermaine Jenas; the unfortunate loss of Modric, who broke a bone in his leg in the 2-1 win against Birmingham, is a huge blow to the club's momentum. Thankfully, the emergency signing of Niko Kranjcar from Portsmouth should paper over that crack nicely.

There are, however, still question marks about this Spurs side, most notably about the frailty of its central defenders – stand up Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate, if you can – and the mental state of goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, for whom the phrase 'a rush of blood to the head' was invented.

Still, there are many more positives than negatives. Having soundly beaten Liverpool at White Hart Lane in their first game of the season, Spurs will not fear a visit from Manchester United. But as the season goes on, and injuries take their toll, I wonder how much longer they can survive near the summit of the league.

Intimidating track record

Manchester United have stuttered in the early stages of this campaign, as they seek to win an unprecedented fourth straight title. But Alex Ferguson will be comforted by his team's exemplary record against Tottenham. They have not lost to the north-London side in their last 16 league meetings, a run that dates back to May 2001, when Spurs won this corresponding fixture 3-1. Of course, such runs don't last forever, and Ferguson is wary of a Spurs team that has improved almost beyond recognition since the opening matches of last season.

Recent history apart, also in United's favour is the fact that many of their stars were not called upon during the international break, including Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Michael Owen and Anderson. With so many players either rested or returning from injury, United won't be able to blame fatigue if they leave White Hart Lane without a point.

Centre-back Sebastien Bassong has recovered from a knock he picked up on international duty for Cameroon, and should start against the Premier League champions.

New signing Niko Kranjcar, who made little impact for Croatia in their 5-1 defeat by England at Wembley on Wednesday, is expected to replace compatriot Modric on the left side of midfield.

Ledley King's famously dodgy knees are not the problem this time – the fragile defender strained his groin against Birmingham – but he's tipped to start at the back alongside Bassong.

In goal, Carlo Cudicini will continue to deputise for the injured Heurelho Gomes.

Last starting XI: Cudicini, Bassong, Corluka, King (Hutton 46), Assou-Ekotto, Huddlestone, Lennon, Palacios, Modric (Crouch 49), Keane, Defoe (Pavlyuchenko 80).

Manchester United

Versatile Irishman John O'Shea is out with a calf strain and is set to be replaced at right-back by Gary Neville. United's club captain proved his fitness in a reserve game last week and will be desperate to return to the first team.

Rio Ferdinand suffered a thigh strain in the Community Shield in August and hasn't played since. But the English defender is back in training and will partner Nemanja Vidic as usual, subject to a late fitness test.

Last starting XI: Foster, Evra, Brown, Vidic, O'Shea, Giggs (Berbatov 85), Carrick, Nani, Fletcher, Valencia (Park 63), Rooney.


PLAYERS TO WATCH

Tottenham Hotspur



With his revelatory, man-of-the-match performance for England against Croatia on Wednesday, Aaron Lennon proved that he is one of the most-improved players in England. His raw pace and skill were never in question, but now there are welcome signs of maturity in the winger's overall play. Already this season, he has shown much greater intelligence in his use of the ball, especially in choosing when to cross – a glaring weakness in the old Lennon – and when to run at defenders. That said, if any full-back can keep him quiet, it's United's Patrice Evra. It should be a fascinating duel between two of the quickest performers in the league.

Manchester United



It's something of a football cliché that ex-players always return to haunt their old clubs, but that's exactly what Sir Alex Ferguson will hope Michael Carrick does at White Hart Lane tomorrow. Carrick's 'Marmite' status means he will always have his critics, but there's no doubt that the former Spurs star is now a key component in United's team. He is not a showy player but his range of passing and positional sense are both first-class – he has that rare ability to keep a team ticking over, even if many fans choose to ignore such an attribute. As Harry Redknapp searches for the best partner for Wilson Palacios in the heart of his midfield, no doubt many Tottenham supporters will spare a thought for the playmaker they once called their own.

PREDICTION

Spurs made light work of Liverpool at home on the opening weekend of the new season and their confidence will be high as they look to scalp another of the so-called 'big four'. Crucially though, there is now a Luka Modric-shaped hole in the hosts' midfield. The Croatian has been vitally important for Spurs so far this season, and although the pace of Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe will no doubt cause United problems at times, Modric will be sorely missed. In light of United's excellent record at Spurs, and with Rio Ferdinand back at the heart of their defence, I expect United to be good enough to take three points from what should be a very tight contest. No one would be surprised if it's Tottenham old boy Dimitar Berbatov – rather than Wayne Rooney, who ran his socks off for England on Wednesday and must still be slightly jaded – who gets the winning goal for the visitors.

Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Manchester United

Fair play to ManU...they deserved all 3 points.  It was pretty even until Scholes got sent off and then we suddenly looked bereft of ideas not to mention that we couldn't impose ourselves against 10 men.

We really missed Modric :-[

Owen's stoppage time winner clinches win over CityAssociated Press

MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Michael Owen struck six minutes into stoppage time to give Manchester United a dramatic 4-3 victory over Manchester City on Sunday, halting the crosstown rival's perfect start to the Premier League season.
     
United had thrown away the lead three times after blunders at the back - the last coming when Rio Ferdinand gifted the ball to Craig Bellamy for his second goal of the game in the 90th minute.

"We made three horrendous mistakes, mistakes you don't even half associate with our team and it kept them in the game," United manager Alex Ferguson said. "I am unhappy because it spoiled what could have been a really emphatic victory. We could have won by six or seven today. It's probably the greatest derby game ever."

While Wayne Rooney had got United off to the best possible start with a goal inside two minutes, goalkeeper Ben Foster committed the first calamity to allow City striker Carlos Tevez, returning to Old Trafford following his offseason move from United, to set up Gareth Barry's equalizer.

Fletcher headed the Premier League champions briefly back in front at the start of the second half, but Tevez provided the ball for Bellamy to make it 2-2.

Bellamy was on target again after Fletcher nodded in another in the 80th minute, but Owen chose the perfect time to score his first goal for United at Old Trafford and vindicate manager Alex Ferguson's gamble on the 29-year-old forward.

"It was always going to create a little bit of noise me moving to Man United," said Owen, who joined after his Newcastle contract expired. "Even if they didn't take to me it's still a privilege to play in a team like this. It hasn't sunk in (scoring)."

After four successive wins, it was the first time City had dropped points since $200 million was spent strengthening the squad over the offseason.

City's Tevez, was predictably jeered in marked contrast to the outpouring of support from United fans on his last appearance here in May. Despite those "Fergie sign him up" chants, Tevez rebuffed a permanent deal to cross the Manchester divide.

The Argentina striker had been a doubt but passed a fitness test on Sunday morning on a knee injury sustained on international duty two weeks ago.

Initially, he had to operate as the lone striker in front of a five-man midfield as Emmanuel Adebayor, who had scored in each of City's opening four wins, started a three-match suspension for his stamp on Robin van Persie last weekend.

City was trailing with 1 minute, 55 seconds on the clock.

Micah Richards had made a crucial challenge to halt Rooney's advance. But the defending wasn't as sharp when Ryan Giggs took the resulting throw in, and Patrice Evra cut the ball back to Rooney, who brushed off challenges from Kolo Toure and Nigel de Jong to fire in his sixth goal of the season.

Despite United being in the ascendancy, Foster gifted City an equalizer. Foster, who had looked uneasy in the opening exchanges, was slow to react when Joleon Lescott's deep ball landed on the edge of the penalty area.

As Foster attempted to usher the ball into the area he was tackled by Tevez who then squared the ball to Barry and the England midfielder dispatched the ball into the net with only Nemanja Vidic to beat on the line.

The equalizer jolted United, whose early superiority had waned and Tevez was denied a goal on the stroke of half time by the post.


United started the second half as strongly as the first, with Giggs, playing in his 30th derby, crossing from the left and Fletcher rose above Barry at the far post to head beyond Shay Given.

The lead lasted less than three minutes. Tevez was again the provider, spotting Bellamy in space, the Welshman advanced and then curled the ball past Foster into the far top corner from the edge of the area.

Within minutes Park was replaced on the right by new recruit Antonio Valencia.

Given pulled off three superb saves in quick succession, with lightening reactions blocking two headers from Dimitar Berbatov and turning over Giggs' effort.

Fletcher was on target again after meeting Giggs' free kick with a far-post header.

City had twice come close in the final minute, but a mistake by Ferdinand enabled Bellamy to gallop forward and beat Foster from a tight angle.

A point looked to be City's until Giggs fed Owen, who replaced Berbatov in the 78th, to produce the winner in the sixth minute of stoppage time. City manager Mark Hughes immediately complained to the fourth official that the four minutes of announced stoppage time had expired, but to no avail.

Manchester United Coach Alex Ferguson The World's Best
Sir Alex Ferguson has won the Goal.com poll for the world's greatest coach.
11 English Premier League trophies, five FA Cup wins, three Scottish Premier Division medals, and two Champions League final wins.

It doesn't get much more impressive than that. The haul was certainly enough to convince the majority of Goal.com voters to select Sir Alex Ferguson (he's been knighted too, of course) as the best coach in the world.

The Manchester United tactician has won everything put before him at the club level, and has kept a stranglehold on the EPL, winning more than half since the inception of the Premier League and the last three on the trot.

1999 will probably be remembered as the Scot's greatest year, when Manchester United won the EPL, the FA Cup, and the Champions League in an all-conquering treble.

The man who has won the one trophy Ferguson hasn't came in at fourth, sandwiched between England national team coach Fabio Capello and Barcelona's Pep Guardiola. Marcello Lippi is the only one of the bunch to have won the World Cup, but that honor couldn't earn him more than his 8% of the vote.

Sliding in at second was Inter coach Jose Mourinho. Besides being good for a quote with his fiery antics and antagonistic mind games, the “Special One” has won a multitude of trophies in his short career. With Porto in his native Portugal he won the domestic title and the Champions League. At Chelsea he conquered England. Now with Inter, he's already won a Scudetto in his first season in charge.

Well just for the record, Chelsea - QPR was pretty dull.

Joe Cole made his return and was perhaps the best player on a sub-par night. He was having his way wid d QPR defenders but noone around him reallly had the attacking quality to assist him in midfield or attack, until Lamps came on for second half.

Borini played upfront...he is shite, looked devoid of talent or potential.

Debut for Zhirkov..he is clearly from the Glen Johnson school of defending and will always look to attack. Not quite Ashley Cole level though (a bit unfair, since Ashley Cole is arguably the best left back in the world this year).

Kalou actually looked half decent for a change. I guess he found his level against Championship opposition.

Sam Hutchinson could be the next John Terry. Good performance at the back.

Oh yeah, this is a Man U thread....carry on  ;D

I was speaking with a manufacturer in Manchester this week, they commented on the "power/influence" of Sir Alex Ferguson. They went to the United v Arsenal game, half hour before the game the sprinklers were turned were turned on the Arsenal half of the pitch.  Not sure what to make of this strategy, but this a strategy that is adopted by other teams and countries. I recall hearing that the turf at BMO field being watered prior to a stage 2 world cup qualifier between Canada and some other team.
