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

… But Man Utd midfielder will still miss the final Uefa will discuss Darren Fletcher’s red card, which at least gives some hope to the Scot, who is currently suspended from the Champions League final. An official Uefa statement confirmed that they “received a submission from Manchester United FC concerning the red card shown to […]

Ex-ref says Roberto Rosetti was right to show red card to Man Utd player That’s right folks, Poll says Fletcher deserved to be sent off in last night’s CL semi. The Scot will now miss the final. In his Daily Mail column, Poll wrote:

The best reaction to United’s walk in the park “It was 11 men against 11 babies. We never doubted ourselves.” Patrice Evra gets cocky after the event “It is the most disappointing night of my career. I felt the fans were really up for a big night and to disappoint people who stand behind the […]

Last night’s game reviewed in handy list format 1. What sound does a one-armed man clapping make? Or the sound of a massive anticlimax? I imagine it’s similar to the noise inside the Emirates after 11 minutes, when the game was effectively killed off by C-Ron’s 40-yard free-kick (great strike but Manuel Almunia should have […]

Gooners, look away now My 10 conclusions on the match coming soon…

Dear Jim,
Please can you fix it for me so that Manchester United play Barcelona in this year’s Champions League final.

Arsene Wenger is sad

May 6th, 2009

Twenty-five minutes into last night’s Champions League semi final, Arsenal’s manager faces the harsh reality that his team is not yet good enough to compete at the highest level.

Alex Ferguson knows better than most that Cristiano Ronaldo may move to Real Madrid this summer. Fergie’s first choice to replace C-Ron is Lionel Messi, but there’s zero chance that Messi will swap Barcelona for Manchester.

What does Arsenal’s gaffer know that no one else does?

Snapped as Everton beat Man Utd on penalties in last month’s FA Cup semi final.

“Lots of people tell me that I look like him. He has actually influenced my choice of hairstyle and I have even studied the way he smokes so I can hold my cigarette in the same way.”

Man Utd play Boro this lunchtime, but it won’t be a full-strength United who run out at the Riverside. Alex Ferguson has said he will rotate his squad, so one of Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney will be absent from the starting XI, possibly both. Kiko Macheda might start in Ronaldo’s place, for example.

He’s a baby, baby BABY! A couple of days late on this, I know, but then we’ve only went live on Friday. Cut me some slack here. Oh, and enjoy your bank holiday weekend.

If you didn’t know, the source material is Fergie’s disbelief that Mike Riley didn’t award a penalty to Man Utd when Danny Welbeck was tripped by Everton defender Phil Jagielka in the FA Cup semi final.

Fergie finds something new to make his face go red Man Utd’s manager wants new rules designed to increase the broom cupboard-like dimensions of some Premier League dressing rooms. The Scot thinks that some Prem clubs’ away dressing rooms are too small to contain his mighty entourage: a proud collection of pampered egos and forelock-tugging […]

Should have got a Brazilian

Who’s going where, and who’s not going anywhere… Baked-bean head Mikael Silvestre was reportedly undergoing a medical at Man City when he was informed that Arsene Wenger wished to sign him. ‘Silvestre immediately abandoned the medical and hurtled down the M1 to meet Gunners boss Wenger and discuss terms,’ The Sun claims. Hope he stuck […]

C-Ron voted “ultimate gay icon” An online survey of 3,000 gay men voted C-Ronaldo the ultimate gay icon. A spokeswoman for www.gaygolddiggers.uk.com said: “Ronaldo’s ripped body, slicked-back hair, shiny white teeth and jewellery swung the votes his way. He looks like any gay man or woman’s dream.” Yeah, he also looks like a frickin’ Guido. […]

The best caption wins a five-disc DVD box set… Poor C-Ron: sat in the stands during Sunday’s Community Shield, all alone and probably wishing he was in Madrid. Oh well, how much sympathy can you have for a man who earns more than £100,000 in a single week? Exactly. Anyway, we want you to come […]

United desperately need another forward. But who? C-Ron is out for two months, Louis Saha is made of glass, Fraizer Campbell is too raw… the attacking back-up to Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney – neither of whom are orthodox strikers – looks thin indeed. From a fan’s eye view, we all know that Man Utd […]
