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.

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.

Rio Ferdinand has spoken of his belief that the friendships and banter among the current crop of United players will ease the pain suffered in Rome last month when Barcelona basically taught Manchester United a lesson for 80 minutes.

Ferdinand who is  a clear leader in the United setup has to look like the leader on and off the pitch and these comments add to it. Speaking to ChannelBee.com, Rio unveiled all with regards to who are the dressing room jokers and whose names are usually found at the end of a dressing room prank, and that when the laughing and joking knows no barriers with his teammates, there is a clear one with Ferguson which they have to respect says Rio,
