So we have another signing…

Don’t feel like saying anything about it though…

Am a little lost for words right now !!! Come on for god’s sake… i really doubt i am really excited about any of United’s signings….

BUT, in Fergie I trust….


Even as the dossier was made on one of the world’s most past-it players, there was a nagging feeling that this may have been a possibility however bleak. The fact that it is a reality is absolutely outrageous.

When I first heard the rumour, I was thinking whether the Press have done it again. But as the day progressed, there was so much more that kept happening.. it was no surprise that he was finally signed but only SHOCK!!!

owen bdr

Can you imagine Micheal Owen, the Liverpool prodigy, Legend etc. playing for UNITED. Its like Beckham playing for Liverpool or more recently Ronaldo playing for Liverpool. I compare the Owen-Ronaldo situations coz both are World Class talents, both Ballon D’Or winners and both had/have moved on to Real Madrid for developing their “Galacticos” image, albeit at different times.


With the exit of Ronaldo, one of the most important decisions that SAF will make is to crown the next Manchester United Talisman!!!!

So who do you think it should be.. Vote here:

There has been a lot of fuss on the quality of players that we should be buying with the 80 million transfer kitty that we have got. As I have mentioned before, the press have taken to our bank balance to the extent that any possible transfer has to be linked with Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson.


We are apparently in the market for all top starts (whatever is left anyway) as well as unknown quantities. The Media has created a greater hype of the United transfer strategy than Sir alex would have wanted. This is not helped by the fact that Madrid are spending without a care in the World and English press want at least one of their clubs to do the same. Manchester City would have been the more likely candidates, but with Huges at the helm I am not surprised that they are moving slowly but surely towards devloping a quality team capable of challenging Chelsea and Liverpool for second spot next season.


Predictably, there has been a lot of transfer speculation after Ronaldo’s departure was announced on June 11. However, it does feel like a relief that we finally have someone that has come to our club rather than the other way around.

With the departure of Tevez and Ronaldo, the team is definately weaker than it was last season and we really need to purchase some quality if we want to challenge Barca in Europe next season. [I shall discuss this in detail in the next post] 

So is Valencia the answer to our woes???

Here is a video of Valencia in his Wigan days……

After looking at this video, it feels like we have another Ronaldo at our hands, but videos can be deceiving. Cant wait to see what this lad can do with World Class Players around him rather than the mediocre ones he had at Wigan!!!

Welcome LUIS ANTONIO VALENCIA!!! Hope you are a success!!!

UPDATE: I had written this post before Ronaldo’s move was confirmed, but thought the best time to publish it would be only after hez gone.

June 25, 2009:

The next peice of news is absolutely fictitious and the theory of a drunken United fan desparately fighting with a Madrid fan over which club is more prestigious. Even fort a United fan like me it was unthinkable and extremely hillarious. Here goes an excerpt of the conversation:

Real Madrid Fan: “What the F*** is GLORY GLORY MAN UTD!!! We are ******* bigger and outrageously better”

United Fan: Ya so can you explain why you have not reached the champions league semis in the last 5 years???

RM F: All ur ******* BEST players come to US like its the best thing to happen in their lives!!! Ronaldo.. if u know dreams of playing for Real not United cunts even after spending his devloping years there… nd so did Beckham btw… The people who play know better than you single minded fools

MU F: Ha!!! but Ronaldo has not gone yet!! Sir Alex and United are just taking the mickey out of your stupid club and all this transfer is going to fail at the last minute…. Its just to get back for all the disgusting and absolute nonsense that your last president did.. btw how many presidents have you had???


For me thats where the discussion ended folks!!! Stupid drunken supporters!!! but a good laugh none-the-less…

P.S. To the Madrid fans: Get real… Ronaldo is probably the only united player going to Real in/before his prime…The others were well past their best
