Manchester United: All the latest Manchester United flavoured news, views, rumours and other assorted bits and bobs

C-Ron hints at Spanish move after Champions League final Cristiano Ronaldo says he may consider his future at the club after next week’s Champions League final – great timing C-Ron, I bet Fergie will be chuffed to hear that. “I’m happy here, but let’s see what happens after the Champions League final,” Ronaldo told Antena […]

Man Yoo and Chelski unveil CL final kits Do fans actually like having to shell out for one-off, special edition commemorative shirts? If I was a Chelsea or Man Utd fan, I certainly wouldn’t want to spend the best part of £40 on a shirt that looks almost exactly the same as the one I […]

New London Mayor looks a bit like Man Utd reserve keeper Spotter’s badge to Pies reader Dan. Nice work. Seen any good Shit Lookalikes recently? Send us an email or leave a comment with your shout.

Today’s hotter-than-July lies… 1. Mauro Zarate to Arsenal The on-loan Birmingham star (pictured) is on the wish list of one big-four club, at least according to his agent. I guess it’s Arsenal who want him, as an Eduardo replacement. [Setanta] 2. Jonny Evans to Sunderland Roy Keane is reported to have bid £5m for United’s […]

C-Ron loves a man with a baby face Take two Man Utd stars into the shower? Ole and C-Ron look like a couple of the fresh-faced guys you might see in a Gay Chat phoneline advert. The hand on the knee makes it all the sweeter.

Today’s tastiest Premier League morsels • Didier Drogba says he and Chelsea team-mate John Terry will be fit for the Champions League final against Manchester United in Moscow. Both were injured in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Bolton, with Drogba hurting his knee and Terry dislocating his elbow. [BBC] • Blackburn star David Bentley is convinced […]

Fergie wins LMA Manager of the Year award Man Utd’s boss has been voted Manager of the Year by the League Manager’s Association, a justified reward for his team winning their 10th Premier League title. But did he do a better job than all of the other 19 managers? Who would have got your shout? […]

Like some wise old schoolmaster, Pies grades each Premier League team based on their 07/08 campaign. Here’s part two: Man City (9th) Started brilliantly, finished with a whimper. Overall though, Sven-Goran Eriksson did a good job of restoring pride to the sky-blue half of Manchester. A couple of his signings were notable successes – Elano […]

Congrats to Man Utd for winning their 10th Premier League title – they are deserved champions, for sure. But which of their players did the most to contribute to their success this season? Cristiano Ronaldo scores the goals and gets the headlines, but did he do the most to drive United to the championship? Vote […]

Sky dubs fake commentary to pump up C-Ron’s profile According to the people behind this YouTube clip, Sky used commentary from goals scored by Didier Drogba (vs Everton), Wayne Rooney (vs Newcastle), and Thierry Henry (vs Manchester United) to make C-Ron seem even more amazing than he already is. Sky Sports in “over-the-top, contrived hype […]

It is well and truly crunch time, Pies readers. After a season full of ups and downs it has all come down to the last match of the season. By 5pm on Sunday we will know the identity of the 2007-08 Premier League champions. The question is, who will you be putting your free £10 bet on? Manchester United have won all the plaudits for their football and have been the pacesetters since the wheels came off on Arsenal’s campaign. But slow and steady Chelsea have kept plugging away and in contention when it matters. So who is going to end up with the trophy on Sunday evening?

Remember we told you about Ronaldo’s brush with transvestite prostitutes? You must remember. If you can’t, remember when The Sun told you about it then go back 24 hours before that. Now you remember.
Anyway, the main developments since then have been Ronaldo’s fantastic quote: “There were no sexual relations because the moment I discovered they were transvestites I ended the whole thing. I am completely heterosexual, there is no doubt about that.” And also the mildly amusing fact that one of the prostitutes looks a bit like Carlos Tevez. Of course, this begs the question would Ronaldo try to pick up Tevez if he was wearing a dress? Carlitos himself is not averse to such activity as we discovered after his public schoolboy romp with Lucas Neill and Nani!

Wigan boss urged by Chelsea to “really, really try” against United Seems that Sir Alex Ferguson has no shortage of go-to guys in a crisis. Alan Curbishley (lurking on the right of this photo) ordered his West Ham team to roll over and let United scratch their tummies – “Lads, me and Alex are in […]

Portuguese cheater (not C-Ron, the other one) play-acts after butt And I thought Nani really had something with Lucas? Apparently not. Disgraceful stuff from Man Utd’s trickster. Fortunately, the officials didn’t buy it. Worthy of a five-match ban (but he’ll only be banned for three), not to mention the two weeks’ wages it has already […]

It seems Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo was the victim of a practical joke at the weekend. While the 40 goals a season winger was supposed to be conducting an interview with Match of the Day, some prankster had obviously misled C-Ron into believing he was attending an audition for a New Kids On The Block tribute band. Our money is on Rio Ferdinand being the culprit – the boy’s got form. Keep Hangin’ Tough, C-Ron. Chav-tastic!

We knew on Tuesday night that we were set for a historic all-English Champions League final, and we found out last night that it would be between Chelsea and Manchester United. So who will you be rooting for in Moscow? That is assuming you don’t support one of those teams, of course, otherwise the answer will be pretty obvious. Will you pick your team on geography (although I can’t imagine too many Manchester City fans cheering on United)? Do you have a preference for the colour red over blue? Or will you devise a complicated formula to work out who the underdog is and support them? Let us know who’s got your backing and if you want to leave a comment telling us why, that would be just grand.

Simple question, to those of you who watched last night’s Champions League semi. Who was your man of the match? There were several fine performances, mostly from men in red shirts, but I’ve narrowed it down to a shortlist of eight players. If I’ve missed someone off the list, leave an angry comment. Vote below: […]

Watch the best moments from last night’s enthralling Champions League semi final second leg, including, of course, Paul Scholes’ wonder goal.

1 What a time for Paul Scholes to score his second goal of the season. And what a goal!

A lookalikes/horror hair 2-for-1 mega deal, starring Cristiano Ronaldo and a crime-fighting robot Manga boy. As suggested by Pies reader Stacy S – thanks Stacy, a fine example of the genre. More shit lookalikes

This clip from French TV shows at least part of the already infamous Battle of the Bridge in which Manchester United players got into a scuffle with Chelsea ground staff after Saturday’s match. It is difficult to see what started the incident (especially as it was allegedly something said by one of the groundstaff). Patrice Evra seems to charge at a groundsman who swings for the left-back, knocking a steward over in the process. Why not sit in a darkened room behind Venetian blinds and make your own judgement on the video for that authentic FA experience?

Stop the press! C-Ron has won the PFA Player of the Year, for the second year in a row – no surprise there. Ronaldo was not present in person to collect the trophy ahead of tomorrow’s crucial Champions League semi-final against Barcelona at Old Trafford. But he was shown on a video screen accepting his […]

Michael Ballack had his best game in a Chelsea shirt on Saturday against Man Utd, and I believe it’s no coincidence that Frank Lampard was not playing alongside him. The Englishman, who was absent due to the sad, untimely death of his mother Pat, is a fine player but in my opinion he is a […]

No doubting the big game this weekend. The title will all but be decided at Stamford Bridge tomorrow lunchtime as Chelsea take on Man Yoo in what Sky Sports may or may not be calling the Battle for the Universe in an action-packed commercial set to the Star Wars theme. Anyway, here is a classic moment sent in by Pies reader Mr E Dunphy, of Dublin.
