Hatrick For Rooney in United Win

Old Trafford witnessed the rain of goals from The Giant as United crushed Arsenal 8-2 with a brilliant hat trick from Rooney. This is the 17th consecutive win for The Red Devils at home, Old Trafford.

United showed an evidence that inexperience legs with old heads can win match. The 90 minutes match was dominated completely by United's young lads whereas the Gunners were all over the grass but not in the goal tally in comparison to United.

Welbeck, the goal scorer from the last game against Spurs opened the account for The Red Devils with a superb goal at 22 minutes from Anderson's pass. But after 5 minutes the match referee, Howard Webb awarded a penalty to the visitors when Jonny Evans’s tug on Theo Walcott sent the winger tumbling to the ground. But the Spanish goalkeeper, De Gea diving low to his right, keep out the Arsenal captain’s spot-kick. It was an good penalty save from De Gea to charge United. The young chap from Spain showed right temperament with a great save which could be the point of his Man Utd. career.

One minute later the young leg of Young punished the Gunners for not equalizing the score with a stunning goal, a 20 yard curler which left Szczesny with no chance. It was a spot kick day for Rooney which began from the 41st minute free kick. The first goal from Rooney came from a free kick just outside the D-box. It was a well-executed free kick, but the ball was within the keeper’s reach and he should have pushed the shot to safety.

Welbeck pulled his hamstring, which will surely deprive England of his services against Bulgaria next week, being the only minor inconvenience, especially as his replacement was last season's star man Javier Hernandez.

In the stoppage time of play, Theo Walcott scored the first goal for the visitors. The United defenders were not aware of the situation and De Gea could not keep the goal away.
Had Van Persie's first-time volley found the net instead of being superbly repelled by De Gea , they would have been back in with a chance.

Once again, though, United responded to Arsenal missing a chance and they made it 4-1 eleven minute later when Rooney netted another free kick after being fouled by Djourou. England's number one striker to replicate his landmark United goal with his 151st.

Park joined the party with his stunning goal. The nightmare for Arsenal grew even bigger , when Carl Jenkinson was sent off for hauling down Hernandez, having already been booked. Van Persie grabbed a consolation goal for his team though. Evra was brought down by Walcott, allowing Rooney to complete his hat-trick from the spot and then, in stoppage time, Young added an eighth.

Altogether 5 yellow cards were shown with 2 for home and 3 for visitors, one red for pity Arsenal

Joy for United, pain for Arsenal.

United victory was cherished by almost 75,000 Red Devils fan at The Threatre of Dreams.

Glory Glory Man United.......

Talk of Sacking Wenger is ridiculous says Sir Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex has backed Arsene Wenger to resurrect the Gunners and also said that the talks of Wenger being sacked due to lack of Silverware is just plain and ridiculous.

A newspaper quoted Fergie saying: "It's a crazy world we're in. It's a critical world and you only need to lose a couple of games to have critics howling down at you.”

"All the talk is about Arsenal and Arsene leaving. But who can replace him? It's the most ridiculous situation. The man has been simply unbelievable. He has given Arsenal platforms they never thought they'd get to,” he added.

"He should carry on. He shouldn't listen to the critics. The one thing you need in this game is ear plugs," said Ferguson.

Match Preview : Manchester United Vs Arsenal

Manchester United will face arch-rivals Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday. This game in my view is the toughest game for Arsenal this season with United looking good and Arsenal losing key players. Mean while Arsenal have lost seven and drawn one game in OT.

United look in terrific form with the young lads showing their worth in the first two games. De Gea looked confident against Spurs. Injuries to Vidic and Ferdinand could have been a problem but Jones and Smalling look confident in every game against the opposing strikers.United attacking play has been flawless this season with neat passes and nice co-ordination between every attacking players.

Losing Fabregas and Nasri, Gunners don't seem to be the team to look for this season. They improved their poor start to the domestic campaign by qualifying for CL. Still Udinese looked the better team in both legs. A 0-0 draw with Newcastle and 2-0 loss to Liverpool in the first two games shows the weakness of the Arsenal team this season.

Arsenal won in Emirates 1-0 with Ramsey scoring and United won in OT 1-0 with Park Ji Sung scoring.

PROBABLE XI: De Gea, Smalling, Jones, Evans, Evra, Nani, Cleverley, Anderson, Young, Rooney, Welbeck

  • 8:45-10:45 PM

  • Sunday

  • August 28

    I predict a 3-1 score for United. Post your predictions too

Still Unbeaten at Home

The Red Devil still remains unbeaten for the 16th consecutive times at home with goals from Danny Welbeck, Anderson and Wayne Rooney that ensured a 3-0 win for Manchester United over Spurs in the Barclay Premier League.

The home crowd had to wait until the 61st minute to break the deadlock when Welbeck steered a free header into the corner past a flat-footed Brad Friedel. 15 minutes later Anderson doubled the home side's advantage. United sealed the win with a header into the right corner from Rooney in the 87th minute. And Rooney sealed the win in the 87th minute when he guided a header into the corner from close range.

With most of its in-form players in bench, the Red Giants had a drought in the first half of play. But the young legs showed their magic after the 60th minute goal from Welbeck. The first half of the match was no special with some attempts of goals by both the team. The match first card was shown to John Evans at 36 minute. The second going to Micheal Dawson of Spurs 3 minutes later.

The match began real fire after the first goal from United. The ball possession after the Welbeck's goal was 71-29. The guests lost the control of the game afterwards. the new goalkeeper of united had some difficult moments handling the ball and the pressure as well. It wasn't quite plain sailing as De Gea's struggles under the high ball returned to present Jermain Defoe with a chance that he smacked against the post. Evans, the replacement of Vidic did make some play but was a touch clumsy with the ball and opposition players.

Missing Luka Modric - who wasn't in the right frame of mind to play -the Spurs Manager, Harry Redknapp has never won a match at the Old Trafford.

However, as the match went on, United's attacks reduced, their approach play lacked direction and Spurs grew in confidence. Rafael van der Vaart and Niko Kranjcar started to get hold of the ball in areas of some corner.All praises must be rendered to Spurs goalkeeper, Friedel for making many valiant saves.

With 2-0 down, the spurs made two quick substitution. Tom Huddlestone and Roman Pavlyuchenko came in for Jake Livermore and Niko Kranjcar. The first substitution being at the 46th minute when Vedran Corluka was brought in for Kyle Walker. However the substitutes could not save the match for them.

In the other hand, United had a trio substitution with the goal scorer, Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young were replaced for Ryan Giggs, Ji-Sung Park and Javier Hernandez. This was the 614th league appearance for Giggs, which is a record now in Barclay Premier League.

The Reds Has once again proved why they had won the title for 19 times and why they are still the favorite for it. With the young legs making goals for United, the Champion can claim the title for the 20th times.

Signing for Manchester United sent shivers down spine of Jones

Phil Jones admitted that signing for Manchester United sent shivers down his spine. " It's one of those things that sends shivers down your spine. Putting down the paper for Manchester United is a massive thing for me and my family. Now that i am here I need to prove that I am good enough."

In the time when United are facing defense crisis owing to injuries to first choice Vidic and Ferdinand, Jones and Smalling have stood up. Jones impressed on his debut in victory against West Bromwich Albion last week.

" It was a daunting experience " said the defender on his meeting with Sir Alex Ferguson.I think Jones and Smalling are good enough for replacement. What do you think?

Inter's President remains firm on Sneijder stance

"Sneijder Will Remain "

Inter's President Moratti claimed that Inter Milan's Wesley Senijder will remain with the team this summer, describing the Dutch playmaker as ' untouchable'.

Wesley Sneijder has been a transfer target for Manchester United throughout this summer. Sneijder revealed that he could be sold for the right price but Inter Milan looked keen on keeping hold of the Dutchman.

" There hasn't been any negotiations for Wes " Moratti told La Gazzetta dello Sport. " "If Eto'o leaves, he remains. Sneijder was untouchable, now it is even more so"

"Sneijder will remain"

Inter Milan will not allow Sneijder to leave as he is very important to the team says Moratti. Inter are also poised to sell Eto'o to Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala while Moratti also revealed that Carlos Tevez is a transfer target for Inter this summer.

Reserves coach impressed with Fletcher

I am fit

Warren Joyce: the reserves coach was pleased with the way Darren Fletcher played the whole 90 minutes in the reserve teams 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.

"Its great to see Fletch come through injury and play the whole 90 minutes unscathed. He has worked hard and is a tremendous professional. Its up to the Manager and his recovery whether he will make up to train with the first - team squad later this week."

" Hopefully he will be in great nick and step up his bid for full fitness and a place in the first team."

Ferdinand and Vidic Injured in United's Win At West Brom

Manchester United's centre backs Rio Ferdinand and Vidic were both taken off after sustaining injuries at their opening league match against Wes Bromwich Albion.

With 52 minutes gone on the watch, and the scoreline remaining 1-1, United's defender Vidic walked off the pitch with a groin injury being replaced by Johnny Evans . Soon to add to the injury crisis was United's defender Ferdinand who was clutching his hamstring. Sir Alex Ferguson had to bring his new signing Phil Jones to replace Ferdinand in the 75th minute of the match.

For the rest of the match United's defence consisted of all new and promising young lads, Johnny Evans, Fabio, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling. United's defence seemed strong for the rest of the match but the champions will not be able to use their first choice defence partnership for some time. There was no problem in the defence while Ferdinand and Vidic watched Ashley Young score the winner from the sidelines.

Match Preview : Manchester United Vs West Brom Albion

Manchester United will begin their Barclays Premier League campaign with a trip away to the Hawthrons. United dropped only 2 points in their home last season on a 2-2 draw against West Bromwich. The Reds however earned retribution on the New Year's day with a 2-1 win over the Baggies. With upcoming fixtures versus Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea on the horizon, the Reds will be targeting full 3 points today.

United are the favorites to win the Premier League this season too with the last season's Premier League win setting a new record of 19 over the bitter rivals Liverpool. They have lost Edwin Van Der Sar and Paul Scholes but also have spent about 50 million in the summer to gain the services of Ashley Young, Phil Jones, and David De Gea. After a smooth and successful pre-season in which six games were won, and a Community Shield triumph over "noisy neighbours" City, United seem all geared up for a 20th Premier League triumph.

The Baggies finished 11th in the Premier League last season. They spent a lot of time in the mid-table after a promising start to the season but suffered a drastic downfall resulting in the sacking of Roberto De Matteo. On came Roy Hodgson and he provided positive momentum to end the season. They have signed Shane Long from Reading and Zoltan Gera from Fulham while former United keeper Ben Foster has been brought in for loan from Birmingham City.

In's and Out's:
The Baggies could be without Peter Odemwimgie- the club's highest goal-scorer last season who is struggling with a ankle injury. Youssouf Mulumbu is also set to miss due to abdominal strain. Rafael, Danny Welbeck, Carrick and Patrice Evra are all doubts for United due to injury. Javier Hernandez is out with concussion as are Darren Fletcher and Antonio Valencia who will both play for the reserves on Monday.

Last Meeting:
Chicharito came off the bench and headed United to a 2-1 win over the Baggies after James Morrison strike had cancelled out a Wayne Rooney goal.

Probable XI:
Manchester United: De Gea, Vidic, Ferdinand, Fabio, Smalling, Carrick, Anderson, Young, Nani, Rooney, Berbatov
West Bromwich Albion: Foster, Ibanez, Olsson, Reid, Shorey, Scharner, Mulumbu, Morrison, Brunt, Thomas, Odemwingie

I predict a 4-1 win for United. What are your predictions?

Wesley Sneijder says he would love to join Manchester United

According to ESPN soccernet Wesley Sneijder has said that he is keen to join Man Utd.

When asked whether he was keen on join Man Utd. and whether officials talked had taken place, he replied: "Yes, but nobody has called officially. Maybe there have been unofficial talks.

"The situation is that I am an Inter Milan player, but there's a chance that I will leave. If something crosses my path, I have enough time to take a decision about it. It is down to the club. If a good bid comes in, they have to
let me go. They don't want to lose me but there's a chance they will."

He was supposed to play against England at Wembley on Wednesday but, due to ongoing riots in London the game has been called off.

Even Van Der Vaart claimed that Sneijder was eager to ply his trade in the Premier League.

Van Der Vaart added that Wesley is a very good player and would easily fit into the EPL.

When asked if Sneijder would move to Manchester United he said that he he wouldn't want Wesley to move to Man Utd. as they would get even more stronger but also added that he would perfectly fit into the team.

Gabriel Obertan move to Newcastle completed

Gabriel Obertan against CSKA Moscow

Manchester United's winger Gabriel Obertan has agreed a five year contract to join the toons. It is said that Obertan had been wanting a transfer since January.

Obertan move to the Tyneside club has been finalised and their coach Alan Pardew believes that Gabriel Obertan's 'best years are ahead of him' after completion of the deal that is believed to be worth £3.25million .

Obertan has signed a five years contract and is the fifth signing of Newcastle. He has passed a medical and is expected to go straight onto the first team.

Alan Pardew added: 'Gabriel is a player I’ve watched for the last couple of seasons since he arrived at Manchester United,'

'He has great pace and excellent technique and he has improved his power in the last 12 months and is ready now to make a real impact in the Premier League.

'I contacted Sir Alex about him early at the start of the summer to see if there was an opportunity to bring him to Newcastle, but it wasn’t until Wayne Routledge joined Swansea that we were able to bring him in.

'His best years are ahead of him which is exactly what we want at this club, and with the backing of our magnificent fans I’m sure he will prove an excellent signing for us.'

Manchester United already have many players who can play on the wings, so Obertan opted for a transfer due to lack of first team action.

Manchester United vs Manchester City Community Shield all goals and highlights

This is the video of all goals and highlights from Manchester United vs Manchester City Community Shield match.

Tom Cleverley gets his first England senior team call up

Tom Cleverley has been include in England squad for the upcoming friendly against Netherlands at Wembley after his impressive performance against Manchester City in the Community Shield.

Tom Cleverley played a vital role in helping Man Utd win the match. Because of this Fabio Capello was impressed and opted to add him to the squad.

Cleverley could get a chance to start as both Wilshere and Carrick were returned to their respective club after a medical test by England medical team.

Fabio Capello went against Wenger's warning and included Wilshere in the squad but he has been deemed unfit to face Netherlands.

Wenger said to the official website: ‘They can include him as much as they want; he will not play.’

Young guns fire City all over Wembley

The next Paul Scholes?

Sir Alex Ferguson said he believes Manchester United's dramatic comeback victory yesterday at Wembley proves that he was right to put his faith on a young squad.
United staged a dramatic comeback in the second half to snatch a dramatic victory while being two down in the first. The second half squad of United had an player average age of just 22.
Being two goals down Ferguson sent in Phil Jones, Cleverley, and Jonny Evans in place of stars like Vidic, Ferdinand and Carrick. They joined fellow youngsters Welbeck,20, Smalling,21 and De Gea,20 for a classic second half comeback and showed that United's tradition of snatching late victories had been passed to the younger generation.
Ferguson said: " I always believe in my players. For us it just confirms what i thought about the squad. I am very confident of this group of players."

Here are my young player analysis:
Cleverley showed some glimpses of his talent with some great passes and running in the mid field that United dearly want.
Jones won every header in his battle with Dzeko. Looked very relaxed facing Dzeko.
Smalling produced a storming performance, powerful in defence and always looking to go forward and he was the one that brought life in the squad by scoring the first goal.
Welbeck showed that he could be a real asset for the team with his pace, movement and clever link-up play.
Evans showed a real determination and anticipation to read dangers.
De Gea made mistakes on both the goals conceded, first not coming off the line for the ball and the second despite being hit with pace and strength, should have done better.Still his clever use of ball must have impressed many.

With all the new guns not to forget Ashley Young faring well in their first major test, I would say future is bright for United. 19 seems to be just the beginning. What do you say?

Sneijder claims he is for sale if the right offer comes

Wesley Sneijder said the Inter Milan need money, thus he will be sold if the right offer arrives.

He told Voetbal International-“I only know Inter need money and I could leave if the right offer comes in,” he told Voetbal International.

 “I have a five-day holiday after Wednesday’s friendly against England and I hope the issues regarding my future can be clarified during that time off.

 “I am proud to hear both United and City are interested in me, but so far I have not had contact with either club.

 “When it comes to my future, that is all I can say.”

Last night Mancini told that City were not targetting the Dutchman, therefore it would appear that Manchester United are the only realistic option if he were to swtich to English Premier League.

United the better off the two Manchester..

Once again, the CHAMPIONS bounced back from a 2-0 goal deficit to win the game 2-3. United started the game in an impressive way and were troubling the city defense with some dazzling passes. Ashly Young, who is getter everyday, seemed promising in the left wings. Though, United had complete control of the ball for first half hour, still the mid field seemed weak.
  City, somehow, managed to score a goal from Lescott and the score was 2-0 when De Gea failed to react quickly to stop the long range from Dzeko . We all have his back, and am sure he will soon shine at Old Trafford.
Well its United we are talking about and you can never write them off. Sir Alex made three changes at the half with Cleverly in for Carrick and that, somewhat, seemed to be the turning point the game. He added life to the United midfield, not forgetting the contribution of Anderson, who was lively too.
Smalling was pretty impressive and he deserved a goal for his lovely passes and run in the right win. He tapped in a volley from a curling free kick by Young. The second goal from United which came just after 7 mins was one of the best team goal from United. Love one touch between, Rooney, Cleverly and Nani were involved. Nani did proper justice to the move with a super cool finish. Finally he added one more goal with a minute left on the clock.
  The champions once again proved why they are the best in England as they go on to win the Community Shield for the third time in a row. GGMU......

Ferguson rubbishes Berbatov move

United manager Dr. Sir Alex Ferguson has rubbished rumours that he was trying to sell Berbatov : last season's highest goal-scorer in Barclays Premier League.
In-spite of his excellent performance last season, Berbatov was benched for most of the time due to Javier Hernandez's marvelous debut season. He was not in squad for the Champions League final.
Sir Alex had suggested possibility of Berbatov being sold to Paris Saint Germain in a recent interview to a French journalist but told that he didn't fully understand the question. Its's non-sense, he told to SkySports now.
" There is absolutely no interest from PSG or encouragement from us either."
" I thought she was asking about our chances for the season."
Ferguson has a lot to choose from for striking options this season with Danny Welbeck, Mame Biram Diouf and Federico Macheda returning from loan spells last season. They look set to challenge the leading trio for a place in the starting line-up.

Glazers to sell 25 percent stakes of Manchester United

According to reports, Man Utd. owners, Glazers are plannings to sell about quarter of the club's shares. But this move will rather strengthen their hold on the club than loosen it.

Selling twenty five percent shares could help the Glazers too clear more than £400million of the club's current debt that is £500m and costs United £45m a years in interests.

This would enable the Glazers paying themselves and the new potential investors.

UBS are advising the sale which is called an initial public offering.

Man Utd.'s worth has astonishing increased after the Glazer's took control of the club. When they took over the club, it's total worth was round about £800m, but now the club is worth £1.7 Billion.

A cilose source said: “The belief is that the Glazers are trying to clear as much of the United debt as possible but still retain at least 75% of the club and therefore stay in full control.

“It’s a smart move. It’s a win-win situation for them because it also enables them to put a stop to the criticism that United is a Glazers’ closed shop.

“If they take this route then they will be open to greater public scrutiny and many United supporters – even those who are their biggest critics – will welcome that.

“To make the club attractive to potential investors they will have to aim to pay dividends to all shareholders.

“If they did that at the moment they would be the only beneficiaries and be accused of taking money directly out of the business.

“If they have got other shareholders they can fully justify paying everyone a dividend – and that would be worth tens of millions of pounds to the Glazers.

“Another factor that would please many fans is that this new funding could also create a situation where more money would be made available for Sir Alex Ferguson to spend on his team.”

The Glazers will hope that this moves at least helps some fans have positive feelings towards their ownership.

If the shares are sold, it would go huge way to ensure the future of club. It would also enable Sir Alex to spend more transfer money.

Since, the Glazers took over Manchester United, the club has always been in debt. The sales of the shares could relieve some tension within the fans about the huge sums of debt.

Paul Scholes testimonial all goals and highlights

The first goal is awesome. Rocket shot from Paul Scholes. We'll miss ya Scholes

Gabriel Obertan set to move to Newcastle United

Manchester United's winger Gabriel Obertan has agreed a five year contract to join the toons. It is said that Obertan had been wanting a transfer since January.

Obertan has agreed personal terms with the Tyneside club and will complete a deal next week, most probably on Monday.

Manchester United already have many players who can play on the wings, so Obertan opted for a transfer due to lack of first team action.

Paul Scholes bids farewell

Farewell Old Trafford
The night belonged to Paul Scholes playing his testimonial game against a galaxy of stars in the New York Cosmos that included Pele and Eric Cantona. Nothing could overshadow the quiet genius of United's usually shy and retiring mid fielder maestro.
It had been less than 9 minutes on the field when Patrice Evra rolled the ball back for the mid fielder to blast a thunder past Brad Friedel. This goal brought the full house crowd in Old Trafford to fire.
United went further up when Ashley Young was brought down in the area and Wayne Rooney thundered the ball in off the underside of the bar.
In the second half, Anderson and Danny Welbeck played a neat one two before Anderson provided a sublime finish to make it 3-0. As Steven Dimirov headed a glorious chance inches wide, Welbeck pounced on some poor defending following a Wayne Rooney cross.
Scholes hit a free kick wide while Tom Cleverley and Welbeck showed their quality to assist Mame Biram Diouf. Diouf went for a full bloodied drive to make it 5-0. He then went unchallenged add his second and United's sixth of the night.
Scholes made his way for promising youngster Paul Pogba but not before delivering some classic long range passes that drew gasps from the audiences. United move for the Manchester derby at the Community Shield in a couple of days but they will always be coming to terms that they will be without their influential mid fielder in the season.
Scholes will always reside on the heart of millions of football lovers around the globe.
United: De Gea (Lindegaard 45), Rafael (Evans 45), Evra (Fabio 45), Ferdinand (Smalling 45), Vidic (Jones 45); Nani (Cleverley 62), Scholes (Pogba 74), Giggs (Anderson 45), Young (Diouf 62); Berbatov (Welbeck 45), Rooney (Macheda 62).

Chicharito, Michael Carrick and Rafael set to miss Community Shield because of injury

Javier Hernandez, Michael Carrick and Rafael are all due to miss Community Shield as Sir Alex doesn't want to risk them as they are not completely fit for the match.

Sir Alex told in the press conference that Hernandez was still two to three weeks away from match fitness and that he'd back at the end of August.

He added: “Considering he had a concussion some years ago, we're playing it safe.”

Whereas England International Carrick complained of  "feeling a tightness in achilles" during Wednesday's testimonial for Van Der Sar.

Right Back Rafael picked up an injury during friendly match against Barcelona.

The good new for SAF is that Darren Fletcher and Antonio Valencia are both fit for the match.

Sir Alex said -“It's very easy to get emotional about this type of game,” Sir Alex said on the subject of the upcoming derby match.

“I don't think we'll be changing our policy.

“I've always viewed the Community Shield as a stepping stone for the first game of the season and there are two or three players who will need a game.”

Last year Man Utd. won Community Shield match against Chelsea and then went on to win the English Premier League record nineteenth time.

Manchester United to make a shocking move for Joey Barton??

Phil Jones set to get first England senior team call up

Fabio Capello has included Phil Jones in his provisional squad of England for the next weeks friendly against Holland.

Capello found Jones perfomance in Euopean Under-21 Championship impressive and thus has given him his first senior call up. This has been a drastic season for Jones. He has found his value roared as he has signed from Blackburn to Manchester United and the first possible England team call up is another significant event in his career.

Jones said: 'I am 19 years old and did not expect so much to occur at such an early stage. I am just enjoying everything.'

Last week Capello indicated that it my be too soon for the Center Back to break to the senior team but whether he makes into the match day squad is yet to be seen.

Jones could get his chance as he can play both as a defensive midfielder and a center back. The teenager including other 35 to 40 player have been included in the provisional squad which hasn't been made public but the clubs and players have been informed.

On Wednesday Jones told how he was 'just riding the rollercoaster'.

 'It has all happened so quickly,' he said. 'I played every week at Blackburn and I want to do the same at United but I am a realistic person and I know that it is not going to happen with the quality of the players we have here. Hopefully, when I get an opportunity I will take it.'

England's friendly against Holland is schelduled 3 days before Premier League kick off and 3 days after Community Shield match.

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has been called the best sriker in this world by Mexico Under-20 forward Taufic Guarch.

Chicharito is bound to miss this weekend's Community Shiled match vs Manchester City following the concussion he suffered during training in US tour of Manchester Untied. 

Taufic Guarch said that Chicharito is at the very top of his game and is an inspiration to him as well.

Mexico will face England Under-20 and Guarch said: "We’d rather play our best and be disappointed with a share of the points than play for a draw and risk losing the match.

"That’s how we’ll reach our goal of winning the world title. Mexico have never won this tournament before, maybe we’ll be the ones to create a bit of history.

Edwin bids farewell

Edwin van der Sar bowed out of football on a high during an emotional testimonial night in Amsterdam.

Ajax staged a fitting tribute to the great goal keeper while the evening witnessed United stalwarts - Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Micheal Carrick, Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney turn out for Edwin's Dream Team.
The star-studded side also featured Gary Neville and took the lead at the start of the second half when former Everton striker Louis Saha scored following a Rio Ferdinand through pass. VDS was beaten by a thunderous Rodney Sneijder shot that came off the post and Derk Boerrigter scored off the rebound.
Edgar Davids replaced Carrick in the first half as the game witnessed a number of substitutions. Despite the slow pace of the game, Rooney and Giggs got involved in a build up to the winning goal and Dennis Bergkamp scored with a neat finish.
United's U-13 drew 2-2 with Ajax counter-parts with two goals from Callum Gribbin. Edwin's son Joe played for United U-13. VDS then kept a clean-sheet as Ajax '95 beat Holland '98 through a Marc Overmars strike.

Edwin's Dream Team: Van der Sar; Neville, van Bronckhorst, Ferdinand, Vidic; Carrick, Giggs, Zenden, Kuyt; Rooney, Saha

'Nothing Concrete' to Sneijder move says SAF

Sir Alex Ferguson has hinted that the club are looking to sign Sneijder but insists there has been nothing concrete about the move.
United have been heavily linked with the Dutch man on a deal close to 35 million pounds despite SAF dismissing the reports.
A Wednesday report suggested that Sneijder had been given a week to decide on his move to Old Trafford but later in the day Milan Chief Executive Ernesto Paolillo said the Dutch was still an " Integral Part " of the team. Paolillo also claimed that the Dutch was keen on staying at the club.
Ferguson said : " We are always trying to improve but at this moment there is nothing concrete"
Sources at Old Trafford are confident of landing Sneijder given his personal demands worked out.
Do you think he should be given the wage he is demanding or should he lower his wages to be part of United?

Ever wondered how it is to watch Manchester United playing??

Eric Cantona says that Manchester City won't suceed to emulate Manchester United

Man Utd. legend Cantona warned noisy neighbors Man City that they would never ever be able to emulate Manchester United as long as they depend solely open the money for succeding.

The Eastland outfit last season qualified for the Champions league and won FA cup following an extravagant spending. FA cup was their first trophy for 35 years.

Roberto Mancini has continued spending huge sums of money even this years and as a result has broken Manchester City's previous transfer record by signing Aguero for £38million.

Nonetheless, Cantona believes that Man City won't be able to match Man Utd. on long term if they only depend upon money for success.

Man Utd. are the best team,’ said Cantona, whose move to Old Trafford in 1992 was the catalyst for a golden era. ‘I don’t know how City work, maybe they work on the academy, but today they want to spend to build a team, to buy players.'

He also said that Man City were successful last year but won't be able to match Manchester United as our club brings through young players rather that just depend upon spending crazy sums of money.

Cantona is at Manchester currently as director of soccer at New York Cosmos for a testimonial in honour of Paul Scholes who came into Man Utd. shortly after unexpected parting away with Eric Cantona.

Recently two expensive buys of Man City have been moaning about dissatisfaction of life at Manchester. This proves that just spending big sums of money doesn't guarantee success and a good feeling among players. Cantona also expressed his feelings that happiness on pitch is more important than off the pitch.

He said: ‘The most important thing for me was to play for the best club in the world with some of the best players in the world’.

 ‘The greatest time you can have is on the pitch. I loved Manchester and the people. Every time I come back to Manchester I go to Old Trafford. It’s very special for me and it will be even more so this time.’

He was sitting alongside Cosmos star Pele  in order to promote tomorrow nights Scholes testimonial and argued that Ferguson's claim that Scholes was irreplaceable was wrong.

He added: ‘You can replace players, especially at a club like United with a great manager like Sir Alex Ferguson. Every time a player leaves we think the club can’t win any more and they still win things because they are very strong.’

Van Der Sar bids farewell

Last night there was a testimonial for another departed Old Trafford legend Edwin Van Der Sar. Former United team mates including Ferdinand and Rooney were involved in the match and completed his dream team and won 2-1 against Ajax.

And seems like Tevez has asked a further four days leave to spend with family. He had already been ruled out of Community Shield match but now has asked a further four days leave.

The Argentine wanted to leave Manchester City but might have to start his season in England as nobody has been able to match his price tag in excess of £40m and his huge personal demands.

SAF admits Berbatov could be sold to PSG

Berbatov was the joint golden boot winner of last season's EPL along with Carlos Tevez.

Manchester United Striker Berbatov look set to leave for French club Paris Saint-Germain..

The French club have been very active after their take over by a Qatari group.

When asked on a French TV whether Berbatov could leave Man Utd. or not, SAF replied: 'Yes, he might. That’s possible.’

The moneybags are said to be willing to cough a fee of about £20million which will mean a net loss of  about £10 million from the price he was bought from Tottenham three seasons ago.

His possible departure seems to be hugely influenced by the impact Chicharito had in his first season.

Berbatov's sale might mean that United are confident of signing an attacking player, most probably Wesley Sneijder who is supposed to be costing around £30-£35 million.

Manchester United's charity match was organised by  former Marseille goalkeeper Pascal Olmeta fior helping the gravely ill children.

Scholes : "Sneijder is brilliant"

On your marks to go to Old Trafford?
Paul Scholes has added fuel to the speculation regarding the Dutch playmakers' switch to United terming Sneijder as BRILLIANT. There has been buzz around lately that Inter Milan have agreed a 30m pounds agreement for their talismatic playmaker.
The retired mid-fielder now a member of SAF's back-room coaching team hailed the Dutch play maker as a top player. " He has been brilliant over the last few years with both Inter and Holland. Every club would want to sign him if available."
The main hurdle to the Dutch's move to Old Trafford seems to be his high wages of around £200,000 which is high above Old Trafford pay structure. But according to The Mirror, his agent is supposed to fly to London to push the transfer through before the end of the transfer window.
Scholes also insisted that United's current batch of young mid-fielders like Tom Cleverley, Paul Pogba, and Ryan Tunnicliffe were good enough to make the United squad

“There is always speculation," said Sneijder, who would be an ideal replacement for the recently retired Paul Scholes in the team's midfield. "I've said before, I've played for almost 10 years at the highest level and every year there is speculation.”

However, speaking after his team's 3-0 loss to Manchester City in the Dublin Super Cup, he said he's still happy there, "As you can see, I'm still here."
