Although I like Daniel Levy, having Klinsmann for a chairperson would be amazing :P

I would like to see Emanuelson in the prem even if it was for Arsenal. Great player and needs to be exposed in a big league.

Re: Bobo's Personal Rumour Thread!

Anelka is a good striker. But Fergie's type of individual Miles? What do you reckon. Dont think he would fit in.

Man Utd need a target man imo.

I don't like Anelka.

I would be happier if they signed Huntelaar or Adriano. But Adriano's character may be the problem and Huntelaar would need time to adapt.

Anelka seems reasonable choice. He is experienced and played in EPL.

you hit the nail on the head for me there mate, they need a berbatov type player, not Anelka. he has the skill yes but he isnt the type of player united need. plus, would ferguson want someone with his attitude ?
