Vidic Staying At United

Posted by Keano! on June 14, 2009

Nemanja Vidic will be staying at Manchester United after reports were linking him heavily with Real Madrid and most notably, Barcelona. However, the Serbian will be seeing his current contract out with the English Champions and will hopefully be renewing it.

Vidic’s agent, Paolo Fabbri, spoke of his belief that unless there was a moment of madness from “some Arab,” Vidic would be a United player next season, dismissing reports from Spain and Italy.

It’s All About Wayne’s World Now

Posted by Keano! on June 14, 2009

Ronaldo is on his way to Spain and I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Wayne Rooney won’t be as gutted as some to see the Portuguese man leave as the number ten can now take the reigns as the United focal point, which in my opinion anyways, he always was.

Rooney contains all the attributes you want in a player and if Sir Alex plays him in the central role which Rooney longs for then it could be the key to United’s future success.

Ronaldo Bites Back At Fans

Posted by Keano! on June 14, 2009

Cristiano Ronaldo has launched a stinging attack to the “Ronaldo haters” after his odds on move to Madrid are accelerating in speed. Many United fans have disregarded him for his petulant antics and unprofessionalism acts on the field rather then concentrating on what he did at United as a wonderful player.

The deal with Madrid has not been completed as contracts are yet to be signed but Ronaldo has taken his chance to have a dig at anyone who has listed him in their hate bracket,

Posted by Keano! on June 13, 2009

Brazilian forward Robinho of Manchester City has spoken of his desire for City to approach Manchester United for their Argentine work-horse, Carlos Tevez. Tevez who’s future remains in the balance at Old Trafford after United turned their noses up at the price tag, set by his economic rights owner, Kia Joorabchian, is being linked with several clubs including Liverpool and Real Madrid but on the face of it all, it looks like he will join Manchester City should he fail to be signed up by the Red Devils.

FZ: He Came, He Dazzled, He Left

Posted by Keano! on June 12, 2009

The inevitable has happened. We couldn’t be sure when, or under what circumstances, we couldn’t be sure who would be the one to sanction it, we couldn’t even be sure how much for. But yesterday, 11th June 2009, it was revealed that Manchester United had accepted a world record offer of £80M from Real Madrid, and Cristiano Ronaldo was finally getting his dream move.

The inevitable fact was that he was going to go at some point. But saying it wasn’t still a shock would be a lie in itself. After last summers media frenzy, it was widely known that Madrid would come at United again despite the fact that they said it was all over in January. However, the time scale is rather astonishing. It’s only been 2 weeks since the Champions League final, after which the first collective newspaper speculation began for this year. But going further, after the first notion of a bid came the first acceptance of a bid almost straight away. Not exactly the drawn out circus we thought all thought it would be.

Fergie Must Copy Capello!

Posted by Keano! on June 11, 2009

Fabio Capello has really managed to get the best out of Wanyne Rooney of late, and the funny thing is, it’s playing him in his best position rather then playing him somewhere else to accommodate other players.

Ferguson, genius he maybe, but he persists in playing Rooney out wide where he is no where near as effective. Sure he tracks back, puts the opposition under pressure and sets up chances along with scoring the odd goal, but play him in a centre forward role and he will be odds on to score in every match with the Quality United have around him.
