Pretty much the least interesting ongoing news story in history?
Will he play as a striker, up front with Rooney just behind? Will he be a regular first team starter? Will he keep Saha out of the team?
entirely on the merit of his cheeky vulpine grin
Out with Viduka, then out with Anelka... Tevez just has to play this season, right?
His final performance of last season was really very good indeed.
Still, Rooney and Tevez with Giggs, Scholes and Ronaldo just behind, and Nani and Anderson able to come in for the two veterans if needed, is pretty scary. Especially as you can imagine the 5 of them could swap positions at will.
Just wish we hadn't sold Rossi.
in history too.
Man U don't need him, end of.
but i am a man utd fan and seemingly the only one that thinks this
if that's who you mean, is really really good, when fit. And I seriously mean I'd take him above most of the so called 'world class' strikers. Just he's so unreliable it ends up being only five or six matches a season you actually get him able to work at full pelt.
is that he sees rooney's future as more of an out and out striker, with all the midfield options in behind.
where that leaves the question of tevez i don't know since he's probably a more natural striker. my guess is they'll play together but the whole front five will interchange so much there are no real positions, but those two right at the top.
Dubious legal wranglings, 'big clubs' buying all the players, and obscene amounts of money changing hands.
one man's right to make an obscene amount of money for a player.
Though the idea that West Ham could agree such a ridiculous contract, then think they could rip it up and own the player seems equalkly ludicrous. I'd like to see people do that with their mortgages or something.
And, as I keep thinking to myself, if this Tevez transfer to United is apparently so dodgy, why should that of his mate to Liverpool be any different? Or does it only apply if the Premiership agrees to turn it's back and the selling club wants rid of the player?
Mascherano was released from his West Ham contract so he was free to go where he liked (or wherever Joorabchian told him to go). I don't think it's illegal to have third party ownership in the premiership, however it is illegal to have a third-party influence in a player's contract. So basically, West Ham screwed themselves by contracting a player whom they had no control over, which is why the PL got angry. Then they 'ripped up' his contract so he could play the last few games of the season.
the Heinze story might top it in terms of lack of interestingness.
i want to go to liverpool, no you cant. oh. you cant get much more interesting than that can you?
hes perfect for the way they'll play next season with rooney, ronaldo, tevez and nani all interchanging positions. Rooney can play the role of an out and out striker easily and if he does drop back to get the ball he will have ronaldo and nani ahead of him and tevez to link up with. Saha can fuck off, he is absolute shit.
I'm a bit disappointed that Rossi's left, I thought he could become one of our main strikers.
Saha gets injured too much and is erratic, Dong Fangzhuo looks a bit dubious and Solskjaer can hardly run anymore.
Thank god Smith is going. A mediocre player.
