Cant see him going United. Arsenal would be the best team for him but it will most likely be Chelsea or City. He's obviously referring to Liverpool with that statement though so maybe they've found some cash?

One of the owners is supposedly selling his baseball team but then it said none of the cash raised would go to Liverpool.

hes either you or one of your family. didnt you read it?
ill help you with a quote of the last paragraph eh man.

So we wait for events to unfold at Old Trafford.

It's a night when United fans should put the anti-Glazer revolt on the back-burner, gird their loins and concentrate 100 per cent on City.

End City's dream of a first major final since 1976 and then re-focus on owners who are bleeding the club dry. And then Arsenal.

Personally, I go for United to do just that.

I read it. He also said United could lose to Arsenal and then Chelsea beat Arsenal and it's all back on for the league… the bloke clearly doesn't know which team are the team to beat in the league this season and it certainly aint United or Arsenal

telling the fans to get behind the team and to go on and ruin citys dream and then go and do arsenal at the emirates doesnt seem a tad biased even to your deep red eyes no?
anyway forget it, its pointless.

Noticed the Arsenal fixture list back in August… even as a Gooner I'm almost more interested in the fact that if they win certain matches and lose others they'll have a pretty significant impact on both the fight for 1st and 4th. One way or another those races are probably going to look a lot less open.

No you have a fair point on that bit I agree but the bloke clearly doesn't grasp that the game against arsenal is not about how it effects United v Arsenal for the title but how it would put them even further behind Chelsea. For that reason you can discount the rest of what he has to say.

player of the tournament. i loved baggio.

also liked milan. was good when it was the 3 foreigners rule and milan had the dutch and inter had the germans.


word.. loved italian footie in the early-mid 90's.
was always an inter fan due to the alvaro recoba and ruben sosa.
also liked lazio due to beppe signori and the one step penalties that we used to rinse in school and wearing boots one size too small which i did for a number of years.

Agreed, it was that followed by the NBA show.

I was a Fiorentina fan, loved Batistuta and wish he had come to United. Shame they never won anything mind you.

Did anyone else have the rumour at their school that Italian football was fixed and that all the players were kind of like actors? It was almost believable at the time Laughing out loud

Laughing out loud Not heard that one.

I do remember European cup nights being more special - you had vaguely heard of this Stoichkov bloke, or that Romario guy. Surely they can't be better than Brian McClair? Then all of a sudden they hammer you 4-0.

Just seen an article on the time that says Smalling to Utd is a done deal, is this common knowledge or just paper talk?

nice pipe dreams there, the club should have just admitted from the start it was never gunna happen instead of trying to get the investment for a 60,000 stadium, now they just have egg on their faces.
