United vs Bolton : Penalty Award

Saturday, September 27, 2008

"Rob Styles has dropped a massive clanger. It was one of the worst refereeing decisions ever," said Reds legend Lou Macari, speaking on MUTV.

Bolton boss Gary Megson complained in his press conference, "It was a nonsense decision. After all the talk about technology being used to help referees, what did we come up with this summer? A campaign to show more respect to referees. How ironic."

Sir Alex Ferguson empathised with his opposite number but was naturally delighted to take the "lucky break" that enabled Cristiano Ronaldo to score the breakthrough goal from the spot after being tackled by Jloyd Samuel.

"I was surprised (by the decision)," Sir Alex told MUTV.

"I haven't seen it again (on TV yet) but it looked to me as if the Bolton player (Samuel) got a foot on the ball.

"But Rob Styles turned down four or five for us last season, so maybe we're getting payback now. But he still owes us four!


Dimitar Berbatov Wish Fans Must Be Patient

It seems that some Reds are writing off Dimitar Berbatov already, despite the fact he's still trying to achieve full match fitness, having joined a new club playing a new style, while coping with the off-field upheaval of living in a hotel, plus the new experience of shouldering the weight of expectancy that comes with playing for the world's biggest club!

The criticism is quite ludicrous. Presumably these are the same Reds that didn’t have a good word to say about the best left-back in the world Patrice Evra during his first season. And those who also initially saw in Nemanja Vidic a slow and cumbersome centre-half rather than one of Europe’s finest defenders. All that Evra and Vida needed was time to adjust to their new surroundings, and the same is true of Berbatov.

From listening to some recent callers on MUTV and reading posts on Talking Reds, it would seem that some fans have already formed their opinion on the Bulgarian. Alan Hansen certainly hasn’t helped - his comments on BBC's Match of the Day 2 merely perpetuate the myth that Berbatov has been a flop so far. A quite ridiculous assertion given he's been here less than a month.


Manchester United Fans’

Friday, September 26, 2008

The Manchester United Fans’ Forum is looking for seven match-going supporters to join the regular debate on club policies and discuss ways to improve them.

The Forum is chaired by United chief executive David Gill and meets three times a season, usually on the Friday before a weekend home fixture. The club pays reasonable travel expenses to help forum members attend.

To reflect the varied sections of the club's fanbase, 14 representatives are drawn from Season Ticket holders (3), One United Members (3), supporters' club branches (3), box / executive members (1), 16-21 year olds (1), over 65s (1), adult Family Stand Season Ticket holders (1) and a resident of Manchester, Salford or Trafford. One seat is also reserved for a member of the Manchester United Disabled Supporters' association.


Latest New : Cristiano Ronaldo and Nereida Gallardo

Thursday, September 25, 2008

The 23 year old Manchester united and Portuguese winger who has been in scintillating form for Manchester united in the season that just ended, scoring 42 goals in all competitions and helping Manchester united to back to back Barclays premier league titles and the coveted Champions league title. He has been seen blowing kisses on many occasion after scoring, most noticeable being his 37th goal which he scored against Middlesbrough. When asked about the blowing kisses the Portuguese winger replied by saying he had a new girlfriend.

So who is she? No doubt the Manchester United midfield sensation would be trying relentlessly to keep aspects of his personal life private but the Cristiano Ronaldo appears to be head over heels in love with his new girlfriend; 24 year old Spanish supermodel Nereida Gallardo. Gallardo has been spotted at many of his games with his cousin Nuno. The midfield maestro who once dated Gemma Atkinson, an English actress, television personality, glamour and lingerie model has been seeing the Spanish supermodel since January 2008 and the couple has been seen together on many occasions.

Every successful man needs a successful woman behind him, because
at the end of the day; with the all the player's fame and accolades,
if he has no one to share it with it will all be in vain. Hopefully the Spanish supermodel will inspire the world's best player to produce another season of phenomenal football at Old Trafford. The player reported turned down a historic deal worth £90million from Spanish giants Real Madrid which would make his transfer the highest in history.


Ronney Come Back !

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Sir Alex Ferguson will chuck Cristiano Ronaldo in with the Carling Cup kids tonight for his first start of the season. Ronaldo made his long a waited comeback from the bench in Manchester United's last two games - against Villarreal and Chelsea - after undergoing the summer ankle surgery which forced him to miss the start of the new campaign.

United's star performer would not normally feature in the Carling Cup. The competition is last on Fergie's list of priorities, the one he uses to give fringe players and emerging youngsters a rare taste of first-team action. But Fergie, mindful that Ronaldo needs valuable time in competitive games to get back to full fitness, is ready to start with him in tonight's third-round tie against Middlesbrough at Old Trafford.

The Guardian has uncovered a team-building document that Arsene Wenger gives to his players before matches. Team play is also the theme as the paper's Kevin McCarra writes that Sir Alex Ferguson still has to find the right balance to his United side.

The Daily Express picks up on MUTV's quotes from Wayne Rooney that appeared on on Sunday


Ferguson’s Dilemma Over Ronaldo

Saturday, September 20, 2008

Ferguson’s dilemma over Ronaldo

[Against Villarreal] United did show a marked improvement on their display when beaten at Anfield at the weekend, but only after Cristiano Ronaldo arrived from the bench at the hour mark did they play with the verve and intensity likely to be required to beat a Chelsea team brimming with confidence at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

That presents a problem for Ferguson as Ronaldo, returning from ankle surgery in July, had not played at all, even in the Reserves, prior to Wednesday.
"He did very well for his first game but it would be a big ask to start him on Sunday," Ferguson said.

Ronaldo also makes headlines in The Sun, this time for saying he’s a “tough guy” and that he can take whatever his opponents dish out. “I’ll be booted again but I will not kick out when it happens,” he vowed.


We Support Ronaldo

"These supporters have enjoyed Ronaldo for five years at this club and he’s showed great loyalty and commitment every time he puts that jersey on."

- Sir Alex

You could have been forgiven for thinking United had scored, such was the noise when Cristiano Ronaldo stripped off his tracksuit and entered the fray against Villarreal on Wednesday evening.

After a summer dominated by question marks over the no.7’s future, the Portuguese winger pulled on a red shirt for the first time since May’s Champions League final.

Some press reports predicted Cristiano would be booed by the United faithful, but Sir Alex says he was always confident the 23-year-old would get a warm welcome.

“Don’t forget, these supporters have enjoyed Ronaldo for five years at this club and he’s showed great loyalty and commitment every time he puts that jersey on,” the United boss told MUTV.

“I wasn’t surprised by the cheers but I think it would have been a great encouragement to the boy.

“I imagine he’ll have been relieved a little bit – perhaps he was a little apprehensive before the match, wondering what kind of reception he was going to get. Deep down I knew he’d be welcomed back.”

Ronaldo didn’t disappoint, even if his trademark trickery couldn't conjure the goal United craved.


Manchester United Soccer vs Chelsea Result

THE BOOKIE – 1-1 draw (5/1)
Betfred chairman Fred Done
United rarely lose two league games on the trot. The loss of Vidic is a blow but one point wouldn’t be a bad result.

THE LEGEND – Rooney last scorer (15/2)
Ex-United player Lou Macari
Wayne looked sharp on Wednesday and I can definitely see him scoring again at Chelsea this season.

THE JOURNO – Ronaldo last goal (7/1) writer Steve Bartram
Ronaldo caught the eye as a sub against Villarreal, and I fancy him to have the final word at Chelsea on Sunday.

THE STAT MAN – Chelsea to win (5/4)
United Review's Nick Coppack
Sorry, but I can’t ignore the stats. We’ve won just once in our last 10 visits to Stamford Bridge.

Dimitar Berbatov sign for manchester United

Fans were on tenterhooks on transfer deadline day waiting to see if Dimitar Berbatov would sign for United. But for Sir Alex Ferguson the wait had been even longer, admitting that he came close to signing the player in 2006.

Tottenham had already made their bid for the striker and United's last-minute intervention was too late to secure the Bulgarian's services from Bayer Leverkusen.

Berbatov went to White Hart Lane for a reported £10.9million fee. United have paid significantly more than that for a player who has shone in the intervening two years. But Sir Alex believes the fee is money well spent.
