In the past few years, well, to be more specific, since 2006, United have not really spent that much in the transfer windows to invest in players for the squad. We’ve not really needed to, to be fair, but Sir Alex and co. have received much criticism because of that – investment is always necessary to move forward, and of course, the hypocritical quote from David Gill himself: ‘Debt is the road to ruin’ and with no investment, that’s certainly where the club will go.

Manchester United dominated at Upton Park with huge thanks to a name you’ve all heard of many a time before, Wayne Rooney. Wayne scored a fantastic hattrick at Upton Park this afternoon consisting of a brilliant free kick, a fantastic strike from the edge of the area to the bottom corner and a wonderful penalty to cap it all off. That’s without mentioning Mr. Javier Hernandez too! Who capped it all off at the end of the game, making sure that Manchester United take all 3 points away.
Recent reports can confirm that Douglas Costa watched Manchester United’s match against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday from the Old Trafford directors’ box. Now this may not mean anything exciting, but it’s looking promising. We’ve been linked with him for a long while, the 20-year-old has scored 15 goals in 61 appearances for his side Shakhtar, was effectively a £7m target for United in August 2009 but nothing came of it. A few years later, the same story seems to be cropping up again for the Brazilian attacking midfielder, who would do well at any club.
As an American staff member on Ramble United, I can appreciate the format and excitement the knockout round of the UEFA Champions League provides, which started last week and continued through to today. Well, this evening. We’ll get the time difference hammered out quickly.
Gary Neville has just announced his retirement from football, in immediate effect. The 35 year old United legend hasn’t played since West Brom on New Year’s Day, where he was fortunate not to get sent off – but he felt it’s time to call it a day.
What. A. Game. Blackpool tore us apart for the entire first half, we had a dreadful start, and were 2-0 down, everybody knew that something needed to change, and surely enough it did, Fergie’s hairdryer came out at half time, and he sent the players on EARLY, to get them to buck their ideas up and let them know they have a job to do, and bloody hell, they did it!
Since joining Manchester United in 2008, Rafael da Silva has exceeded everybody’s opinion of him, quickly becoming our first choice right back, but he’s made some brash decisions in his time, Bayern Munich? Remember that? I sure do…
Take it with a pinch of salt, literally – but the Real Madrid key playmaker Kaká, 28, recently plagued with injuries, has been heavily linked with a loan deal to Manchester United in the January transfer window – which could then eventually lead on to a £50,000,000 permanent deal for the star.
Sir Alex Ferguson sits on the brink of an achievement so great, even his most hardened critic will have to applaud; he will overtake Sir Matt Busby as the clubs longest serving manager on Sunday, and Fergie will have been in charge of United for 24 years, one month and 14 days, which is one more than Sir Matt Busby’s total.
Ryan Giggs has rallied up the troops ahead of the Arsenal game at Old Trafford on Monday night, telling them that they need to produce the same level of performance in every game, of which was demonstrated against Rovers a few weeks ago where Dimitar Berbatov hit 5 against them, and United strolled to success and won 7-1.
Giggsy being a United legend expects United to continue the sparkling form against Arsenal.
