Manchester United ran up the famous “Rocky steps” today, the Glazers reached a season ticket milestone, O’Shea is impressed by Hernandez, vuvuzelas are being banned around the league, and Ribery and Benzema face prison time.

For the regular readers of the blog you will be well aware that I am a realist, rather than a fantasist who loses himself in endless transfer possibilities. When I was younger, maybe I thought “Could we sign a Roberto Baggio or a Marco Van Basten?” – which at the time was ludicrous, considering the attraction of Italy – however, with Manchester City signing David Silva and David Villa moving to Barcelona before the World Cup, surely there is potential to add to this already impressive squad so that United can challenge both domestically and on a European front?
I have all the stories from tomorrow’s chip papers all conveniently compiled right here. In today’s news Sir Alex says there will be no big summer signings, Fabiano “turns down” United, Sir Alex is linked with move for Ozil, Real Madrid rejects for sale, Scholes has his eyes on the Premier League, and Joe Cole proves he loves money and not trophies.
Since the days of Sir Matt Busby, Manchester United’s club ethos has been to give kids a chance. The saying synonymous with football managers, ‘if they’re good enough, they’re old enough’ is so very prevalent with our club. At present the United squad is awash with talented young players. The biggest problem with young players is how to integrate them into the first team, yet we are fortunate enough that our young players are slowly starting to form the core to the club. What’s more, they are all winners.
Another quiet day in the news. Seems like I started my daily review just as the press was slowing down, but we’ve still got some great topics today. Ryan Giggs shares his thoughts on Manchester City and the kids, Rooney takes more blame for England, Ozil may be for sale, Brown backs technology, and Joe Cole falls from grace. We have also have the debate on whether Fergie is playing youth by choice or because of lack of funds to buy big names.
It’s been another quiet day on the news front. Seems the rumors have died down while United are across the pond on tour. Of course, even on the quiet days the press can’t stay away from Manchester United. The press seems to be posing a lot of questions. Is this group of youngsters the next wave of Fergie’s fledglings? Could Hargreaves’ career be nearing the end? Is Patrice Evra on his way to Spain? And the question that seems to be popping up in multiple sources: Are United too old to win the Premier League?
There is always a level of expectation for a new signing. Chris Smalling is no exception. The 20-year-old center back made his debut last night against Celtic, much to the excitement of myself and many other fans. The Daily Mail dubbed it “a debut to forget” and have now followed up with a story of Sir Alex defending Smalling after “debut clanger.”
Welcome to the very first installment of my daily media review!
Today’s big news is, of course, that Manchester United beat Celtic 3-1 in Toronto last night. Also in today’s news: Hargo needs more treatment, Vidic linked with Madrid, who his possible replacement is, Javier Mascherano lost his phone, and our noisy neighbors are in dire need of a dictionary.
According to Federico Macheda’s agent, the Italian striker has been classified as “unsellable” by Sir Alex Ferguson. While his agent has continued to insist that Kiko would be staying at Old Trafford for the 2010/11 season, there has been some talk of a possible loan move. Having spoken with the gaffer, though, his agent’s story now has more credibility.
It’s always exciting when there is a new signing at the club. This summer will be no different. Expect the same buzz and hype of anticipation around the latest recruit, a 22 year old Brazilian play-maker. I think we’ve met him before somewhere, his name is certainly familiar. He’s been tipped to make a big impact this season, I’ve no doubt he’s exactly what the squad requires. He’s a proven goalscorer (ok too far)! Introducing…Anderson
