U21 European Championship: Rossi and Nani’s Goal Videos

It may have come to your notice that we hadn’t put up goal videos of Rossi and Nani’s goals in the U21 Championships. Pity they had to save their best till the very last when things were out of their hands. Both players featured in thumping wins, but were knocked out of the Championship.

Seriously you’d have to feel for them, when Kieran Richardson gets to play more in the tournament.

Oh well, goal videos after the jump.

Well, folks the answer is here.

Look at the uncanny connection between the winners of LaLiga and the Premiership in recent years:

Transfer Rumours: Quaglierella, Smudger and Heinze (again)

Sampdoria’s Fabio Quagliarella has broken his silence and admitted his interest in joining United if the opportunity presents itself. As you may know, his agent had previously issued a come and get me plea. But the main point is that he indicated that United have upped their bid from a previously reported 10 million pounds. He spoke to Gazzetto dello Sport and says that their offer is ‘serious’.

In defence of Louis Saha

In the last month I was reading all these comments about why should Saha leave, how he is injury prone and why we need a new striker. I am not going to argue whether we need a new striker or not, but I am going to argue in regards of the qualities of Saha and why I think that he is a great player and he shouldn’t be sold.

Madrid Win Title | Rossi Expects Chance

Tag: Manchester United News @ 12:04 am

The Spanish title has been won at last and wasn’t it pulsating! Much as I hate Madrid, I couldn’t but feel happy for two former United heroes who had major hands to play in the title run-in.

For one, Beckham showed how wrong McLaren and Capello were, with his work rate and brilliant crosses doing more than its fair share of damage. His work ethic was undeniable even in his last season at OT when it was all but certain that he was moving. The change his introduction brought into the 4-3 Champions’ League classic against Madrid was testimony to his character. He’s proven once again that he is at his dangerous best when completely written off.

Your predictions – who will United sell this summer?

Tag: Manchester United News @ 9:49 am

We’ve brought in 3 players and look unlikely to bring anyone else in, although a striker and possibly a keeper are both on the cards.

It’s far more likely though, that United will be selling several players.

I’ll spare the you the filler quotes – let’s get straight down to the predictions.

I’ll go first – you guys can make yours in the comments section below.

Rio Ferdinand to setup football academy in Uganda

Tag: Manchester United News @ 9:37 am

Rio Ferdinand - Manchester United
The Guardian reports this morning that Rio Ferdinand is to setup a footballing academy in Uganda.

Apparently Rio was very well received by the people there:

‘I thought there might be the odd fan and a couple of workers from the football school at the airport,’ Ferdinand said of the throng that jammed the 10-mile route from Entebbe airport to the capital, Kampala. ‘I was waving out of the window but then was told that I should really acknowledge it so I stood out of the roof. At one point I welled up.’
