Cristiano Ronaldo’s Return To Full Match

Monday, October 20, 2008

soccer.Sir Alex Ferguson will not rush Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to full match sharpness, so much so that he is considering whether to leave the Portuguese winger on the bench against Celtic on Tuesday.

The Reds boss paid tribute to Ronaldo’s personal characteristics and his athletic attributes, saying that he is capable of raising his game on demand. But his ability to recover from a Saturday game for a Tuesday Champions League tie are perhaps not yet at their usual superhuman levels – the after effects of a summer without training due to an ankle surgery.

“He’s coming along terrifically well,” said the United manager. “It’s almost there. With 20 minutes to go on Saturday when Gary Neville went on, I said to Gary, ‘ask Ronaldo how he is’. I thought he was showing signs of tiring. Ben Hibbs.


United : The Reds' performance

Sunday, October 19, 2008

Celtic, Everton and West Ham beware... Wayne Rooney has scored in every match he's played in October this year and last and he's in the right mood to continue.

The striker's latest goal opened the floodgates for United against West Brom and capped a seven-day period in which he also scored four for England. Soccer.

Manchester Beat west Brom

Four second-half goals helped a fluent United see off West Bromwich Albion’s gallant challenge at Old Trafford.

The Reds had been frustrated by the visitors – in particular keeper Scott Carson – for nearly an hour but finally made the breakthrough when Wayne Rooney finished neatly for his fourth goal in as many games.

Cristiano Ronaldo made the game safe with a left-footed shot before Dimitar Berbatov prodded home and substitute Nani added gloss to the scoreline in injury-time. soccer.

Wayne Rooney Says For United

Saturday, October 18, 2008

Wayne Rooney, playing as a deep-lying centre forward, found the net four times for England last week, but that’s no guarantee the 23-year-old will lead the Reds’ line on Saturday afternoon.

While United boss Sir Alex Ferguson usually pairs Rooney with either Carlos Tevez or Dimitar Berbatov, he's also used him in wide positions. soccer.

Ji sung Park Scored Again

Ji-sung Park led by example when he netted in Korea Republic's 4-1 rout of United Arab Emirates today (Wednesday).

Captaining his country for the full 90 minutes, Park scored the second goal with a powerful shot into the top corner and created the third for Lee-Keun Ho with a neat through-ball. Lee-Keun Ho had earlier given the South Koreans the lead. The fourth and final goal was scored by Kwak Tae-hee.

The comprehensive victory in Seoul puts Korea Republic top of their World Cup qualifying group after two games, the first of which was a draw with rivals Korea DPR.

Captain Gary Neville

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

United have to string together a series of home wins, continuing with this Saturday's match against West Bromwich Albion.

That's the message from club captain Gary Neville, who counts an Old Trafford draw back in August as the campaign's biggest blip so far.

"The most disappointing result for us was probably Newcastle at home," Neville told MUTV.

"You can always go to Liverpool and lose... even in seasons gone by when we've won the league, we've sometimes lost there. You never really accept it and you're always disappointed but those games you can lose, away to Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.

"It's the game at home against Newcastle where we're probably drifting behind a little bit on the two points dropped but I'm sure we've got time to make that up."

United are in the unusual position of drifting behind Liverpool but does Neville think the Merseysiders will be a serious threat in the title race this season?

"I hope not, but we don't know yet, do we? They've started well. They've had some good results - they beat us which was obviously disappointing and gave them some

Story About Ronaldo

Just when Sir Alex Ferguson must have thought he had heard the last of Cristiano Ronaldo’s possible transfer to Real Madrid for this year, the Spanish side’s coach, Bernd Schuster, has claimed the Manchester United winger still wants to join the Primera Liga champions.

Real’s pursuit of Ronaldo this summer was one of the most protracted and high-profile transfer sagas of recent years, and it infuriated United so much that they threatened to complain to UEFA.

It ended in disappointment for Madrid, with the Portugal winger opting to remain at Old Trafford. However, the 23-year-old Ronaldo has made no secret of his desire to play for Madrid one day and Schuster believes a deal could be struck in 2009.
“I think there is a chance [of Ronaldo joining Real next season]. He really wants to,” said Schuster. “I think it will be a little more complicated for his club to retain him. There is hope that next year he could be with us. You need to do everything possible [to sign Ronaldo] because this player is worth it. Since the start I thought it was possible though difficult. Possible because the player really showed an interest.

“The information I had said him coming was a real possibility, the meetings were very positive. But after his face to face with Ferguson I knew he wasn’t coming.”soccer.

Brown strong

Brown carved out a niche for himself at right-back during Gary Neville's injury-enforced absence between March 2007 and the start of the current campaign, making the position his own for club and country.

But Longsight-born Wes, who turned 29 today, hasn't given up on reverting to his more natural central defensive role, even if the position is now the stronghold of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.

"I wouldn't have thought I was settled at right back for good," he said. "With Gary being out I was the main contender for that position. Now Gary's back, the gaffer can easily change it. If Vida or Rio are out, then he can put me at centre back."

Brown did occupy the position alongside Ferdinand on a handful of occasions last term when Vidic was out injured. "Against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final it was a really tight game and the gaffer put me there hoping I could use a bit of my experience. It turned out well and we got the result we needed."soccer.

Striker Of Dimitar Berbatov

Saturday, October 11, 2008

Wayne Rooney believes he will become a better player in the presence of Dimitar Berbatov - but he says the strength of United's attack means he is not guaranteed a place in the side.

The 22-year-old striker hopes his new £30million team-mate will bring continuity to his role up front, where he says playing alongside a player of Berbatov's experience will help him improve.

"The mere fact he is at Old Trafford should take me onto a different level," he says. "I am not guaranteed my place in the side anymore."

Wayne Rooney : Goal Shy

Wayne Rooney was labelled "goal-shy" by some sections of the English press during the week but the United striker found the net twice as England ran out 5-1 winners against Kazakhstan at Wembley.

Rooney wasn't the only Red on target, either: Rio Ferdinand broke the deadlock on 52 minutes after an unconvincing first half that saw the Three Lions booed into the break.

Wayne played a big part in pressuring his marker to concede an own goal 12 minutes later, before getting on the scoresheet himself with a neat downward header from Wes Brown's cross. His second, a poacher's goal from close-range, arrived just moments before he was substituted.

United Need Explain For The Champions League

Friday, October 10, 2008

Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United could face exclusion from the Champions League - on the grounds that they hold excessive debt - under plans being drawn up by Uefa next week. The European game's governing body has set up a working group which will meet in Geneva on Monday to discuss how to extend its licensing system and restrict the levels of debt that clubs are permitted to operate with. Currently the financial stipulations in Uefa's system are limited to bans on clubs who have outstanding debts on transfer payments.

It also states that staff should be paid on time. But the proposals being drawn up by Uefa's general secretary, David Taylor, and its president, Michel Platini, would see the system delve far deeper into the financial workings of clubs. "The ultimate sanction is not to be in our competitions," Taylor said yesterday. He explained that debts fixed against assets, for stadium building, are considered more acceptable than those run up in the acquisition of players or for takeovers. He confirmed that this would affect clubs such as last season's Champions League finalists, United and Chelsea, and one of the semi-finalists, Liverpool, unless they significantly reduced their debts.
Matt Scott, The Guardian

Liverpool's Fernando Torres will be hoping such reports don't come to fruition after the striker said he dreams of helping Liverpool thrash United in Champions League final. Meanwhile, UEFA president Michel Platini claims English clubs under foreign ownership are in danger of losing their identities.

The Academy Of Manchester United

United’s Academy complex, which stands opposite the main building, was officially opened by Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton in December 2002 and cost £8m to build.

Split over two levels, it was unveiled nearly three years after the main building was completed. The ground floor comprises 12 dressing rooms (one of which is for match officials), as well as a full-size indoor artificial pitch. Aside from being used for football activity - the first team will during times of inclement weather train there - the pitch is also the setting for various commercial events such as kit photo-shoots and interviews during the season. It is also used by Manchester United Soccer Schools and other club departments who hold one-off football clinics.

On most evenings, the facilities – which also include a full-size outdoor artificial pitch - are used by the club’s youth teams from Under 11’s onwards. High above the pitch is a balcony from which proud parents can watch on. Also, on the first floor is a classroom which is used for educational sessions with United’s young scholars, as well as a main reception room which is the location for Sir Alex’s weekly press conference. The building is adorned throughout with visual reminders of the players who have worn the well-trodden path through United’s ranks, while a plaque on the balcony reads: ‘Our responsibility to the future of this game is to give budding talent the very best opportunity to flourish. The Academy is just such a place, a proving ground for tomorrow’s heroes.’

United Must Win

Darren Fletcher admits there is a sense of bad timing about the international break, but insists he still relishes leading out Scotland this weekend.

After playing an important role in United's three wins over Bolton, Aalborg and Blackburn, the 24 year-old is hoping to take his club form into Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Norway, his 40th match for Scotland.

"Of course, we’d like to keep going with United because you want to keep up the momentum that we have built up recently, especially so for the fans, who have a two-week break now without a game," Fletcher told MUTV.

“But all players love representing their country, and I’m no different. I’m looking forward to the Scotland game and to playing my part. We lost our first World Cup qualifier but we picked up points in Iceland and now we’ve got Norway at home. It's a must-win match.”

Roney Hope Beat Again

Wayne Rooney says he hasn’t changed his approach after scoring his third goal in three games to help United to an impressive 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers.

The 22-year-old Reds forward has been in fine form recently, scoring against Bolton Wanderers, Aalborg and now Blackburn. But Rooney defended his form at the start of the season by saying the only difference now is that he is finding the back of the net.

“Once you get your first goal of the season your confidence is sky-high. I’ve not really been doing anything differently,” he said after scoring the goal that clinched victory over Paul Ince's men.


Pick Foster Says

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

I’m sorry, what? If the first part of that sentence doesn’t bother you, then the second part should. In my humble opinion.

Unlike some people, I actually don’t have any issues with our national team boss hailing from overseas. The practice is rife across the world today and while prevalence doesn’t mean it’s perfect, the results of broadening one’s approach by bringing in a foreign coach are there for all to see. A German coached Greece to glory at Euro 2004, just pipping a Portuguese side managed by a Brazilian (okay, so they speak the same tongue). And a certain Swede actually fared quite well as Capello’s predecessor if you look at his results on the pitch with England instead of his scores in the FA's corridors.

Rio Ferdinand Talking with Fans

I’d like to know how you managed to succeed in becoming a professional footballer and what inspired you to play football. (Zach, Malta)
My inspiration to play football was probably Diego Maradona. He’s the first memory I have of someone doing something really great. I remember in the 1986 World Cup he took on the whole England team and scored. Obviously I wasn’t happy that he scored against England but you had to admire the skill and say, ‘I’d love to be able to do that one day’. I tried my hardest but never really reached that level and obviously I’m a defender now. I think you just have to work hard and always be confident, strive towards your dreams.

If you hadn’t made it as a professional footballer, what type of job do you think you’d be doing now? (Stephen, Sale)
I’d probably be working in the communities in Peckham, where I grew up. I think I’d be helping out in the youth centres or doing football coaching with kids.


Carlos Queiroz

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

"It's impossible to be at United for five years and forget the things that I experienced," Queiroz tells MUTV. "I'll never forget that period of my life working with the players, the staff, the manager, and especially the fans."

The job offer to work with Portugal naturally played on Queiroz's sense of national duty, but also presented the chance to return to some home comforts.

The United Boss Talking

The recent acquisition of Dimitar Berbatov has added both finesse and firepower, but it is the progression of a host of the club's youngsters which have given the United boss much cause for optimism.

"We’ve got a group of young players who are doing very well and showing fantastic potential," he said. "Rafael, his brother Fabio, Possebon, Gibson, Jonny Evans and Welbeck are the type of youngsters we’ve always tried to have here in the last 15 years or so.

Sir Alex Ferguson feels he now has the perfect balance of youth and experience within his burgeoning


Darren Fletcher Praised United’s

Monday, October 6, 2008

Darren Fletcher praised United’s 7,000-strong army of supporters who took over Ewood Park on Saturday.

Blackburn might not be everyone’s idea of a Saturday night out, but United’s fans were in fine voice, and Fletcher says the support doesn’t go unnoticed.

“It was a great boost,” he told MUTV. “Our fans always fill that end of the stadium. They are fantastic. Our away fans are the best in the country. They get behind you and make it a great atmosphere. It was an away game, but our fans made so much noise that it felt like a neutral venue.”

There was plenty to cheer about as the Reds turned in an outstanding show of attacking verve in the second half. “It was as comfortable as it’s been here for a long time,” added the Scot. “We’ve always struggled here, it’s never easy. But we were on top of our game. We created a lot of chances and scored twice, but it could have been more.”

It wasn’t always plain-sailing. The Reds missed numerous chances to put the game out of reach before Rooney’s 64th-minute sealer. “It’s a dangerous scoreline, 1-0,” said Fletch. “Even though you’re in control of the game you have to find that second goal because anything can happen. Blackburn always put pressure on you. It just takes one mistake or a bit of brilliance and it’s 1-1 and game on.


Rovers 0 United 2

Sunday, October 5, 2008

Goals from Wes Brown and Wayne Rooney sealed an impressive away victory as United totally dominated Blackburn Rovers on their own patch.

The Reds called the tune from start to finish at Ewood Park and, although Blackburn protested long and loud about the award of Brown's first-half goal, there was no question that Sir Alex Ferguson's side were deserved winners.

Rovers goalkeeper Jason Brown claimed that he was fouled as Brown headed in a Wayne Rooney corner, but the rookie stopper was otherwise kept busy restricting United to a respectable scoreline.

After a slow, stop-start beginning to the season, there have been signs in recent weeks that the Reds have been creeping towards top form, and this latest display is the clearest indication yet that the champions have hit their stride.

Sir Alex opted for an attacking line-up as he sought to extend a three-game winning streak, with Dimitar Berbatov and Cristiano Ronaldo selected upfront alongside Rooney, who overcame an ankle injury sustained in Tuesday's win over Aalborg.
