  1. Re: Official Red Devils thread Did any of you guys see the game against Hangzhou Greentown? What a game it was. Yes Greentown are a rubbish team but it must be said Berbatov plaued really well. The fourth goal when he and Owen combined was brilliant. Another positive is that Tosic is looking good and Nani has been playing really well in these pre-season games as well. Our front line is looking quite strong as well. Owen has fit in nicely and is getting the goal. Berbatov is his usual lazy but brilliant self, Rooney is playing well and Kiko is playing with a lot of confidence. All is not lost yet... Here are the highlights if anyone wants to see:- Hangzhou Greentown 2-8 Manchester United
  2. Re: Official Red Devils thread I'm gonna have to go with burs there. Tevez does not have and ego. He is a great great player and he did not leave because of the salary, that need was met it was the fact that he was not getting starts that he left. You guys say he got the start the big games....... he only started one game against Arsenal and and the Liverpool games, he did not start any of the Chelsea games or the CL games against Inter or the final of the CL and the two Arsenal CL games.... After he scored four goals in the FA Cup against B'burn did Fergie start him the next game...... no........ He was just fed-up of not getting the starts. I can't blame him for that, he is a quality player and he deserves more. Even if he had got the salary he wanted Fergie would still not started him more often. IMO that's why he left, he wanted to start games. And trust me he is NOT going to go to Man City. He said he would not join Liverpool due to loyalty to ManU, coz they were our biggest threat last season. All i have to say is best of luck Tevez; and i hope we get Benzema...... Lyon have stated that they are ready to sell Benzema if a good offer comes in.
  3. Re: UTD confirm Tevez departure Sorry Stevie but i would prefer Tevez over any of the players named above.... and Beattie better than Tevez??? We are in a bit of a soup now that we have lost Tevez and Ronaldo. As stated above they really will be very hard to replace. I hear that we might launch a bids for Benzema as well as Ribery. Ribery will be very tough to get as Bayern consider him more valuable than Kaka etc. etc, But Benzema actually quite a possibility. I also read somewhere that we are about to launch an 18 million pound bid for Valencia ........
  4. Re: Official Red Devils thread O well, i have been gone for quite a while but i'm back for a bit. Just read that Tevez will be leaving even though we made him a great offer, that includes the 25.5 million pound transfer fee and a salary that would make him one of the highest paid players in ManU; he still rejected. Quite a big loss, i mean i was hoping we would be able to keep him. But anyway, we have to concentrate on getting some quality players now or we really will be in a spot of trouble next season. I hear we could launch a bid for Benzema..... lets hope.
  5. Re: UEFA Champions League Discussion thread Well, i do agree that football is a bout sportsmanship, but the way barca won the game was really.......should i say, heartbreaking. Chelsea dominated the entire game. Created a lot of chances (which they failed to take) and right at the death iniesta scores for barca (that was barca's first shot on target!). Then after that Chelsea should have got a penalty when whoever is was (i forgot ) handled that ball. I would have been distraught had a been a Chelsea fan and as Drogba rightly said at the end of the game the official was a "******* disgrace".
  6. Re: FA Cup Nah, i still do like both of them, but i was quite shocked when Ferdinand came in second to take the penalty. I think that was the reason we lost. Could have had Tevez take that ine and Scholes take the fiftha and kept Ferdinand for the sisth. Anyway, as i said, i am disappointed but i ain't gonna ponder over this game to much.
  7. Re: FA Cup O well, we lost the game but lets look on the bright side. Our young team put up a decent show and we went out respectfully. I still do think that the Welback incident was a penalty though. Anyway, won't spend much time thinking about this loss. All i can say is well done Everton and best of luck for the finals. Just hope the Valencia game goes well.
  8. Re: Official Red Devils thread It will be a close game tonight but i think we should get past Everton. Everton will be really pumped coming into the game coz this is the closed they have come to winning silverware in quite a while. So they will give it everything they've got, but i think we should manage to get the win. Don't think it will be all that convincing....maybe a 2-1......
  9. Re: Official Red Devils thread Ah well, good result for us but not a great performance. Sunderland were the better side for most of the first half and looked quite dangerous in the second as well. Great goal from Scholes (he was the shortest player on the pitch ) and a decent equalizer form Jones as well, but tbh Foster could have done better than that. And then the wonder kid came on and scored within some 2 or 3 minutes. Well, as mentioned above, sooner or later he will run out of luck but it must be said his goal against Villa was not luck and i dare say that this goal was intentional as well. Maybe he did not expect the ball to go into the back of the net but i'm quite sure the flick, though instinctive was intentional. Anyway, end of the day a win is a win and we still are top of the table. Our defense still is very shaky and Vidic really does seem to be lacking confidence atm. The only bit of good news is that Rio is back in training and should e back on Wednesday night to face Porto and hopefully steady our defense. I am a bit worried by our performances and i really do hope that they get better. Right now we must concentrate on getting past Porto, but after that we must work on improving our game. We can't carry on playing like this coz sooner or later we will run out of luck, and Liverpool (who are very much back on track) will almost surely capitalize on it.
  10. Re: Official Red Devils thread What a game against Villa. One of those games that i will remember for a long time to come. Brilliant fight back and two world class goals. Macheda's goal was breath-taking. Screamed my *** off when Macheda scored. Anyway, Porto tomorrow night. Common you Devils !!!!
  11. Re: Fergie's successor? Well just read that Fergie might quit at the end of next season I hope his successor is Jose Mourinho.
  12. Re: Valencia to let 16 players leave this summer! Rumor had it that Liverpool were after Silva......but Rafa seems to have dismissed all the speculation.
  13. Re: Andres Iniesta: 96 at last? Well, i must say, Iniesta had a brilliant game against Málaga. Superb performance from him. If he continues like this then i might be forced to change my stance .
  14. Re: Offical Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Well, a good few signings won't hurt but you guys should try looking on the bright side (it's hard but, whatever....). There was a period in the first half for about 15 minutes, between the two goals in which you guys really dominated the game. You'll made some brilliant attacks down the right flank and for a while really gave Liverpool quite a bit to worry about, and forced some really good saves out of Reina. It was the second goal that really knocked the stuffing out of you guys imo. If you guys could play even one half as well as you did in those 15 odd minutes against Liverpool you should be able to crack almost and defense in the premier league. Recreate that form and you guys will go far even without buying any players.
  15. Re: The Weekend Football Thread 3-0 Liverpool.....they are in fantastic form; really are making a statement.
  16. Re: Andres Iniesta: 96 at last? Well, tbh Iniesta has been nothing more than good for Barca this season. At times he has played well but otherwise he has not been brilliant. He was out for quite a while due to injury and all but so i guess that might also be a reason for him not being able to perform brilliantly. But, he is a great player with loads of talent, and i'm quite sure he will keep his rating. All i'm trying to say is that he is capable of performing better than he is currently. Xavi on the other hand has been intense for Barca this season. I really would not be surprised if he got a rise to 97....he is on fire...
  17. Re: Manchester United Chucking The Title Away? Liverpool chucking the title away early im the season.....i don't think so. It was to early in the season at that point of time for anyone to say that they were chucking the title away. But i do agree with you on the point that anything can happen. As you said' date=' this is football and things don't always go the way you think they will. Well, personally i would be a bit surprised if Villa did manage to beat Liverpool and that to at Anfield. Villa are not playing great football atm and Liverpool are in the form of their lives. But than again this is football that maybe, just maybe Villa might shock us (i hope they do ).
