    Haigh spends on as Chairman looks into Changing Room expansions..
    Just two days into the transfer window and Cambridge manager Felix Haigh has already put the illusion of Bojan behind him with the addition of 15 new players to his squad. There is a clear message coming from the United camp as all 15 are extremely young and all have bright futures. "There is no doubt from me that it is in the kids that we need to invest. It is with them that the future of the game lies and to give them an opportunity to work under such a manger as myself at such an early stage in their careers can only be positive."
    The full list of signings is:
    GK Sascha Studer
    DF Havard Nordtveit
    DF Daniel Opare
    MF Aaron Ramsey
    DF Sean Morrison
    F Shan Scannell
    MF Nicola Rigoni
    DF Ryan Crowther
    DF Alexis Machuca
    MF Osa Guobadia Ice Cream
    DF Kyriakos Papadopoulos
    F Safiou Saibou
    F Tom Elliott
    MF Rodríguez Ledesma Pedrito
    F Filippo Mancini


    (Ice Cream: The young Nigerian hopes to bring some flavour to the United attack)

    (Opare: After his future was in doubt, he is happy to finally have things settled at Cambidge)

    (Ramsey: The young Welshman could not believe his luck when Haigh came calling)


    Despite these successfull purchases, Haigh was not completely satisfied as he revealed yet another play had turned him down, "We made a bid for West Brom striker Ishmael Miller, which the club agreed to, however the player feels that he would rather stay at his current club and give it a go in the Premier League after their recent promotion. Although this is disappointing, it does leave us with some spare money which we will be looking to spend on some more decent signings. Watch this space."

    New man at the helm as Cambridge Chairman plans for the future

    This morning, the back pages of newspapers up and down the country were plastered with the news that Cambrigde United have announced that Felix Haigh, ranked the 66th best manager in the world (...of SM
    ), will be in control for the next few years. Signing after a successfull spell at Chelsea in WC254, the new boss had this to say: "I realise that this may come as a shock to some, but I felt like I needed a new challenge. At Cambridge I have the players and transfer funds that I believe will push this club to great things under my guidance."

    Asked about who he would be looking to bring to the club, Haigh unveiled that he had made a big-money offer for Bacelona starlet Bojan Krkic, only for the player to refuse to play for United. "I understand completely why the player in question has done this. Of course, we would have loved for him to join us here at Cambridge, but this was not possible. It is my aim for the future that players such as these in years to come, will be revelling at the chance to come and play for this club."



    (Bojan Krkic: It was a tough decision, but the Spanish U-21 International decided to stay at the Camp Nou)

    However, all hope was not lost, as Haigh was able to announce four singings other than Bojan, and also seemed hopeful for future additions to strengthen the squad. "We have aquired the services of several players already and we have deals verbally agreed with some others too. Daniel Sturridge will be joining us from Manchester, along with GK Tom Heaton. Also expect to see Victor Moses and Dutch midfielder Nacer Barazite wearing the famous orange and black of Cambridge when the season kicks off in June"

    English Cup : Quarter Final
    Arsenal v Bristol City


    After 3 successive 1-0 victorys in the English Cup, Bristol City travelled to The Emirates in high spirits, although on-loan 'keeper Veniamin Mandrykin had suspicions that this would be the game he lost his clean sheet record.
    Meanwhile, after the Arsenal fans turned up on Saturday to watch a weakened side go down 1-4 to London rivals Chelsea, they were expecting big things from this game.
    In a pre-match interview, City boss Felix Haigh had this to say:
    "Arsenal are a good side, there's no doubt about it; they lie 4th in the Premier League and have quality players. All we can do is go out there, give it our best and hope that something comes off for us. We go into the game on better form but in a game like this, form goes out the window. I'm just happy to be here."


    THE TEAMS


    ARSENAL


    BRISTOL CITY



    1. J. Lehmann


    1. V Mandrykin



    2. K. Gilbert


    2. M. Alessandro



    3. G. Hoyte


    3. T. Vasko



    4. K. Toure


    4. D. Crosa



    5. W. Gallas


    5. A. Kulchy



    6. P. Denilson


    6. S. Meissner



    7. E. Eboue


    7. K. Fatih Serkan



    8. A. Gilberto Silva


    8. N. Carle



    9. E. Adebayor


    9. R. Bobadilla



    10. C. Fabregas


    10. R. Lapaty



    11. A. Diaby


    11. F. Acosta



    As we have come to expect from Arsenal, the team consisted of a few inexperienced players, notably Gavin Hoyte and Kerrea Gilbert in the full-back positions.
    And this inexperienced began to show as Bristol City created two great scoring opportunites within the first 10 minutes, only to be thwarted by some lack-luster shooting and great goalkeeping.
    However, as the first half continued it was Arsenal who looked more likly to score: Gilberto Silva saw one glorious opportunity denied by the referee's assitant and Fabregas could easily have had a hat-trick on another day.
    The first half ended ith the scores level at 0-0, with only the booking of City midfielder Silvio Meissner any notable acion.
    Half time passed, with City replcing 40 year old Russell Latapy with the more physical Dele Adebola. And it was soon clear that Louis Mattis had had some harsh words to say, as Kolo Toure picked up his 2nd booking of the season after a late tackle.
    Chances came and went for both sides, until on 59 minutes, substitue Dele Adebola made himself known to the Emirates as he poked in a goal-mouth scramble to put his side 1-0 up.
    And it soon got worse for Mattis' side, who didn't even have time to re-shape before they were two down just 2 minutes later, thanks to a cool finish from Silvio Meissner, storming through after a mix-up in the youthful defence.
    After this is was all Arsenal as they tried to find a way back into the tie, Adebayor, Fabregas and Gallas all going close with efforts. However, it simply wasn't to be for them, and as Philipe Kait's final whistle blew to send City into the semi-finals.

    (Above: Super-Sub Dele Adebola battles for possession in the recent Cup Victory)
    Final Score
    Arsenal 0 - 2 Bristol City
    MOTM was awarded to Arsenal starlet Cesc Fabregas, who worked tirelessly throughout and made several scoring opportunities for his side.
    City will now progress to face Burnley in an away fixture for the semi final on 2nd June.
