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.

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.

Roo Wants To Be Center Of Attention

Posted by Keano! on June 5, 2009

Wayne Rooney has spoken out of his desire to play in a central role for Manchester United. The number ten has always believed he plays his best stuff right behind a front man or up front spearheading the teams attack. However, it hasn’t always panned out that way for Wayne as Sir Alex Ferguson, despite saying last Summer he’d play Wayne in his best position, opted to put the bullish attacker out wide left and sometimes wide right as the season progressed. Rooney had to fill in on the left wing for United in their Champions League final too.

The Premier League champions made £71.8m, although still see La Liga giants, Real Madrid ahead of them in terms of revenue generated which at the end of the day is much bigger.

Fergie’s Chilling Words In The Dressing Room

Posted by Keano! on May 29, 2009

Sir Alex Ferguson is was known for his apparent trademark “hairdryer” treatment at halftime and fulltime in the dressing room toward his team when he witnessed not a bad day at the office, just a skipping work show more like. Well the wise old fella wasn’t in the mood for this course of action in Rome after United’s dismal performance against Barcelona which saw Ferguson loose his first Champions League final.

Speaking to SkySports reporter, Geoff Shreeves after the game, a man who was inside the dressing room after the match, who witnessed arguably the games most successful manager deliver his final words of the season, revealed the chilling words Sir Alex laid down,

Tevez, Nani & Park Set To Leave?

Posted by Keano! on May 29, 2009

Manchester United may be about to get rid of four first team players after Ferguson admitted that the team would be re-shaped after the final loss in Rome last Wednesday. Carlos Tevez who didn’t return to Manchester with the United squad is now a free agent as his two year loan deal with United ended when United’s dreams of lifting the Champions League trophy for the second successive season came to an end.

According to The Daily Mirror Tevez looks a sure certainty to be playing his work-horse style football elsewhere next season, but a surprise claim that Ji-Sung Park could be on his way out have surfaced too. Park who scored some notable goals this season, such as Chelsea away and Arsenal away in the Champions League, was thought to be a favourite of Sir Alex’s but the South Korean may see himself moved on to make way for a well known United target in Antonio Valencia of Wigan Athletic.

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.

Rome 09: Poorly Setup Press Conference

Posted by Keano! on May 26, 2009

Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson joined the gathered media in Rome with  star players Rio Ferdinand and Cristiano Ronaldo, all of whom were in optimistic mood ahead of the final tomorrow.

Confused expressions and dodgy equipment were the ingredients for the start of the press conference as photographers, microphones and movements were all causing the electrics to act up.

When all was calmed down and the three men on show had working microphones and headsets, the confidence flowed with every sentence.
