  1. Re: Zlatan to 97????

    Most of us don't base our arguments on him playing for Inter. We form our opinions from what we see of him in the Champions league. And Melb, of course, would sooner we base our opinions on what he tells us. Either that or regularly put ourselves through the grind of Serie A matches in order for us to see how amazing Zlatan looks against a fading opposition. If the lad wasn't so tanked up on frustration and Anti-English sentiment, his "opinions" wouldn't be so skewed as to, so often, fall upon deaf ears.

  2. Re: Amir Khan Fight On Saturday

    If there was truth in the Marquez rumour, you'd have to think Sky would be privy. But this is their stance...

    Two of the lightweight belts - the WBA and WBO - were on the line when Juan Manuel Marquez beat Juan Diaz last month, but Warren will surely want to avoid the the three-weight world champion and ring legend at this stage of Khan's career.
  3. Re: Man Utd V Liverpool

    As well, Fergie will use this result as motivation. We're coming up to a crucial time of the season and what bigger shot in the arm than a wake up call from your oldest rivals? Yesterday was awful but I don't think it'll hurt us long-term.

  4. Re: Amir Khan Fight On Saturday

    Khan could obliterate Barrera tonight and we'll still be left wondering if we've actually seen the lad in with quality opposition. It seems that, with Khan and more obviously Sky, the money chase is everything and so, rather than pursue more indicative options, they've found it impossible to resist the Barrera name. If he gets beaten by a veteran Barrera tonight, we'd have to accept that, really, he isn't the next great British hope but, even in victory, what can we take from this fight?

  5. Re: Official Red Devils thread

    I don't think Fergie will publicly criticise our support, as I think he has enough nous to steady the ship after a result like this, but I just wonder what he thinks privately about that game finishing in a half empty stadium. Today wasn't good but, given the past achievements of this group of players, I think the fans could have reacted better.

  6. Re: Man Utd V Liverpool

    I don't think Liverpool could have scripted it better. Gerrard was, somewhat predictably, fantastic and an injured Torres made our defenders look, and this isn't harsh, shambolic. As an individual, Rooney was on his game but there aren't too many positives surrounding today. I do think we'll be fine in the league but if this defeat had come a month or so earlier, when we were further from the finishing line, it could have been much more significant.

  7. Re: Man Utd V Liverpool

    Wasn't it MUTV he gave the interview to? I'm pretty sure. Anyway, I just think it has enough spice without feeding the media these snippets. And given his occasional habit of blowing a fuse, I'd sooner he wasn't talking about hatred and such. He has had the odd temperamental moment of late as well. I hope to god he doesn't do a Mascherano. I'd rather he kept his head down and concentrated on playing football.

  8. Re: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Ignorance

    Well, we can debate whether or not Torres has proven himself on the biggest stage. Fair enough. But the outcome of that discussion, either way, won't convince me that Ibrahimovic belongs in the top category of world class players. I don't think it'd be unfair to compare Ibrahimovic to Cantona. Eric is an icon and idol to most United fans, including me, but I'm still objective enough to accept that, despite his domestic prowess, for whatever reason he didn't actually go out a mirror his Premiership pedigree when faced with foreign opposition. We can debate the reasons for this but we can't pretend these players have shone as brightly as their reputations.
