Good thing that Klinsman isn't there anymore then. As well as the football, I heard he was coaching the German olympic diving team for 2012.

I know, although the likes of Chicarito, Valencia, Fabio, Nani, Berbatov, Park, Van der Sar.... would NOT play in any other majour European team (I can save Ferdinand, Giggs, and Rooney), they collectively work brilliantly at Man Utd.
A genuine good luck to them

Berbatov will likely be sold in the Summer, maybe Nani too.
Park is good enough to play in any team, Arsenal would take him in an instant, but of course they're not a major player on the European stage

Yeah. How sincere of you.
And good luck to Spurs for getting into that number 4 position too If they make that then they'll only finish 3 below United.

Park is good enough to play in any team
dont' think so, and he's not even good looking...


What's the second funniest? Maybe this - That Arsenal and Spurs will merge next season to become known as The Hot Arses?

that's it, I'm signing off..

Oh, now it's down to looks? Sure you shouldn't be a Liverpool fan?

You'll offend PB if she thinks that you think Spurs aren't good enough to be associated with Arsenal!

PB and I have come to a temporary agreement against ManUtd fans, be very afraid.

Absolute bollocks.

Agreed. Valencia destroyed Cole yesterday. Although my feelings on Nani are well known.

I wish he was playing Red Star Belgrade in 1958 instead of Duncan Edwards.

Valencia was outstanding, as was Rooney.

I detest Nani, but he's still a class player, if you can possibly ignore the play-acting.

Chelsea just didn't turn up, did they? They should all give their paychecks back.

No, they didn't look like they believed. I think that's where Fergie comes into his own - He never knows when he's beaten, and he gets his teams up when it really matters.

How bad does Torres look these days? He was a decent player once, wasn't he?

Nani is a complete chop. Capable of brilliance one minute, a cheat the next, and 95% of his corners and free-kicks either hit the first man or end up in the car park. We should sell him to Chelsea. He'd fit in there. I'd suggest Spurs but I don't think they can afford him.

Send him to Eastlands.
