Sir Alex Ferguson: Javier Hernandez is first class

Posted on July 31, 2010  by Stretford-end  in Man United News, Managers, Players, Press, Quotes   2 Comments »

Javier Hernandez

Sir Alex Ferguson has praised our new signing, who has made quite an impact since signing from Chivas, Javier Hernandez who has scored in two United games so far – both for and against his new team mates. Ferguson went onto describe the Mexican International as ‘first class’ and believed that he could operate as a lone striker in a 4-3-3 formation in European football next season – which could then see Wayne Rooney return to a wide role as he did many times when Cristiano Ronaldo occupied a more attacking berth. Hernandez scored a superb lob against MLS all stars and found the back of the net against United last night for his old club Chivas.

As the squad prepares for tomorrow’s match against Chivas, the press has come to near standstill for United news. We do have on big piece of news, though; that being that a young duo will remain with the club to serve as backup to Wayne Rooney. Also, Antonio Valencia is set to be fit by the start of the season and a former United star declines a move back to the Premier League.

For those of your were who busy sleeping last night, you missed a fantastic match. Manchester United beat the MLS All-Stars, with Chicharito netting his debut goal. All other news involves Sir Alex; he’s defended the Glazers, once again backed the youth, and given some advice to his future successor.

For those of you who did stay up to watch the match, we have an obvious poll question today…

Tactically speaking; previewing the 2010/11 season

Tactically speaking; previewing the 2010/11 season

Sir Alex Ferguson

We’ve done the squad introspective; we’ve done the group prediction; one of us had to put our particulars on the line and really risk their reputation. It’ll be no surprise for regular readers to know it’s Yolkie analysing the tactical expectations and predictions for the 2010/11 season. There’s no Eric Cantona style heralding of a new formation I’ve created, but expect to find plenty of things to disagree with..

A tactical analysis for a full season turned out to be a far more complicated task to structure than I first imagined as I wanted to cover all bases. If you’re here for a light read I advise you look away now; if you’re wanting to have a meaty discussion to whet your appetite ahead of the season then fill your boots.

The big news today is Javier Hernandez’s impending debut in Houston tonight. Also, David Gill continues to insists funds are available, Blackpool is set to miss out on Cleverly, and Sir Alex has his sights set on the “new Schmeichel.”

I know for some people, such as myself, the match tonight is on at a fairly reasonable time. However, those of you in Europe and other parts of the world where kickoff is at an unreasonable time, I want to see how many will stay up to see United’s newest player.

Houston Press “welcomes” Manchester United

Posted on July 27, 2010  by KDill_MUFC  in KDill_MUFC, Man United, Man United News, Press   10 Comments »

Ryan Giggs
Rarely does anything infuriate me to the point of writing about it; this is one of those rare exceptions. The Houston Press “welcomed” Manchester United to their city by publishing “Manchester United: Five Reasons To Hate Them.” As if the title wasn’t bad enough, the author proved he clearly lacks any form of credentials to be a journalist by making more than a few errors. He also proved how arrogant some people can be.

Manchester United monitoring Ozil & Benzema according to MEN

Manchester United monitoring Ozil & Benzema according to MEN

Karim Benzema

David Gill’s been talking again; saying Sir Alex Ferguson could yet dip into the transfer market before the August deadline if he so wishes. Manchester Evening News are interpreting it as one possible “world class” signing, but claim Fergie is monitoring the situations of both Mezut Ozil and Karim Benzema.
