Rooney’s injury and what it bodes for ManUtd
Manchester United began its campaign to win the Premier League Cup in a very decisive fashion. Bucking the popular assessment of the Red Devils as slow starters, they came blazing right off the gate this season. Even the usually slow to find his groove Wayne Rooney immediately displayed fine form and racked up an impressive number of points – including getting a hat trick on Manchester United’s successive matches against Arsenal and Bolton.
For a moment there, Manchester United fans were beginning to think that this is going to be an effortless season and that the Red Devils will breeze through the season maintaining their impressive form. But football is nothing but unexpected. Injury problems have again began to plague the team. [Read more…]

Should Players Be Sold at Their Interest? (From 8-5-08)
After my busy week around with my work,United too will be getting busy with Ronaldo’s arrival back at Old Trafford.
Its said that he’s coming to finalize his decisions regarding his career at Real and he should now be let moved out.
According to Telegraph,the reported sum of 68 millions pounds will be offered for Winger by Real in favor of his service.Which will also catalyze the deal of Robinho at Chelsea and Berbatov at United.For many reasons,all this is going to change a lot of things regarding the transfers and signings for players in footballing world.
There were days when players feared from Club owners and managers regarding their footballing careers and decisions.But things are now moving fast.The footy geniuses are bending the rules and taking possibilities to their favors.I mean take a look at any transfer for last 5 years that has been forced by managers.Exactly none but u can find 100’s where a player wants to move out of his team when he wants.
I mean has their been times that clubs missed paying their players.Or has their been times that sponsors didn’t provide him shoes.Whats a purpose of a contract if its not made to fulfillment.And there we are,FIFA prez consolidating these money hungry people as modern age slaves or how about modern age blackmailers…
Right now lets talk about Ronaldo as i can’t get any better example than any.He was brought at United when he was a boy.A raw talent which didn’t have any direction.Hardworking at United and also from United staff pushed him from a kid to a player.All those years they kept him pushing to limits till this boy turned to a man.And now when he knows that playing for him isn’t everything he is trying new things and wants to move out of club for fatter cheques.
Is their any point in having a 5 year contract ???
By tomorrow things are getting finalized between United and Ronaldo lets see what results are we getting from the meeting .
Ronaldo Says He Misses Manchester United (From Last Year)
Cristiano Ronaldo may have had a bit of a troubled relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson by the end of his last season for Manchester United because of his very vocal desire to leave the team but now that he is with Real Madrid, the Portuguese winger has come out to say that he misses being with the Red Devils.
Ronaldo was transferred to Real after an unprecedented £80million fee this summer. But even though he misses life at Old Trafford he still maintains that he made the right choice in going to Real Madrid.
Ronaldo has also dismissed comments that Manchester United has been struggling without him this season. He said that even though the team has lost the last two games they are still the second placers in the league.
I think that it’s very sportsmanly of Ronaldo to say such things about his old club. We’ve often seen players who transfer to a new team lambasting his former teammates and the manager just to justify why they had to transfer in the first place. Ronaldo has proven that you can transfer without having to show any kind of animosity to your former teammates. Yes, he may be seen as a little bit of a brat by most fans but he’s shown that he can also be a stand-up guy.
