FZ: Planning For Next Season

Posted by Keano! on June 4, 2009

There’s no doubt that you learn from defeat and United’s defeat in the Champions League final certainly taught some lessons and highlighted problems which some didn’t know existed. It wasn’t specifically the defeat, more the performance. But the problems that were so visible did not appear overnight as they have been there for some time.

There’s no doubt that this season has been a success despite the final. Winning the League is always the bread and butter, and anything else would be a bonus. A Community Shield win is always a good start to the season. The Club World Cup, despite the lack of importance that some supporters feel regarding the trophy, is quite prestigious. After all, you’re only there when you become European Champions and the League Cup is always a welcome boost midway through the season, especially to the younger players who may be winning their first trophy.

Posted by Keano! on June 3, 2009

Dimitar Berbatov who has been under severe scrutiny from United fans and media alike for a season which has had its ups and down for him insists he is happy with his input of 14 goals. Berbatov who missed a crucial penalty in the FA Cup semi-final against Everton after a very poor attempt was booed by sections of the United fans in his next two games.

Berbatov has played a key role for United scoring and setting up winners against Stoke City, Middlesbrough, Bolton Wanderers Aalborg BK and more. But due to his lack of running and desire to win the ball back he has come in for some criticism from the United fans, some labelling him a “flop.”

Rome 09: Barcelona 2-0 Manchester United – A Footballing Lesson

Posted by Keano! on May 27, 2009

All the build up midweek, all over the world was tipping Manchester United, the holders of the Champions League and English Champions, but how could we have got it so wrong? Barcelona handed us a footballing lesson and surprisingly it doesn’t pain me to say, well done Barcelona, the new European Champions, and winners of the Spanish treble.

It was the dream final according to everyone, it was the dream performance by Barcelona but a nightmare of a display from the “White Devils”, who didn’t shed a tear after the game as they all simply knew they hadn’t shown up and were consequently beaten by a better team, who by the way were missing 3 of the preferred back four.

Berbatov was heavily criticised by United fans after their FA Cup semi-final defeat to Everton after a shootout at Wembley, when Berbatov took a very lazy penalty and saw it comfortably saved by ex-United ‘keeper, Tim Howard.
