The Scholes-Sunderland connection is BS

Tag: Manchester United News @ 3:18 pm

Let me start this off by saying that the headline does nothing to convey my sympathies for the lady who gave birth to the cunt who dreamt of this rumour. Madam, I truly feel sorry for you.

Oh yes, where were we?

United to Sign Another Striker

It’s official now. Looks like Gill and Ferguson are a bit bored with such quick activity in the transfer market that they now feel the need to sign someone else to keep the place buzzing with activity. You know, even I’ve been in such situations when I wrapped up my transfer dealings for Bristol City (in Football Manager) in 3 days flat. The rest of the pre-season then becomes an ordeal of emptiness that prompts some more spending just for the heck of it.

Anyway, I am sure that’s not the same with Gill and Fergie.

The 07/08 Manchester United Kit Leaked?

While we see a lot of kits being revealed these days, our club has been relatively silent about the dates of their release. Plenty of sites and forums have popped up posting pictures of kits and most prominent of them have been the one showing Rooney apparently on a Nike commercial for Sky Sports.

Manchester United Pre-Season Fixture List

Manchester United have declared their pre-season fixture list for the 07/08 season.

The fixtures can be seen as having two stages as we have seen for the past season. The first will be the unavoidable outside-Europe commitments that the club will have to fulfill. They will undertake the grueling tour far east this time and even if the tour might be tiring, it brings in the moolah.

Heinze Rumours (Again) and Foster’s Injury

There are a some more bits of news that wasn’t talked about in the last post but well, I am not going to be covering everything in this post too, and a few more posts may even follow after this.

As some regular readers may have noticed, our daily “Man Utd Headlines of the Day” post isn’t quite daily enough. I think it has more to do with the rather bad post headline it creates, especially if you want to dig through our archives. So while we will still continue to cover club related news daily, the Headlines of the Day type of a post title will be used less often.

Anyway. Back to the news.

The Defensive Dilemma

Jonny Evans has returned to United after a successful loan stint at Sunderland. Reports have it that the reasoning behind that move would be to fight for a place for himself at the centre of defence during the course of the next season and the season after that.

All this comes with the possibility (if not already confirmed) of Pique also returning to OT next season to fight for a place in the centre of defence.

Striker Watch: Javier Saviola

Things have quietened down understandably these days. After all the mayhem those three quick signings created. All that remained of Sunday’s news are reports that renew rumours linking Anelka to United. It’s a Sunday after all, and even your average tabloid reporter needs a day off. We had our opinions on Anelka, and we also thank you guys for your comments. Do keep them coming. Makes us writers here feel less lonely about what we think and write!

Today we will talk about another striker linked to the club. Once again, we aren’t saying if he will come to OT, but just musing on how he will fit into our scheme of things.
