    Hmmm......Defoe, he is suppose to be good but he can't break the Keane and Berbatov at Spurs. I think he is not profilic enough but quite fast.
    No, not this Italian guy who scored the hattrick against England in the Under 21 match. This guy is already 23, how could he have played in that match?

    Man the FA really screw us. The title run in is really tough. Arsenal and Chelsea are tough and Wigan and West Ham might be fighting for survival. Boro and Blackburn are our bogey team in recent seasons.

    I dunno if u guys realise it or not that this is the 3rd season that Man Utd have to face Chelsea AWAY in the closing stages.

    To win the EPL is not easy these few years. There will be challenges ahead and with the addition of the new players and returning youth players, SAF has strengthened his team on all 4 comp.

    I still rank EPL as the nos 1 choice; 2nd is the Continental League; FA Cup and then League Cup

    Yeah I rank it that way too and Man Utd seem to have it that way as well.

    Yakubu could leave Middlesbrough
    I think he is what Man Utd need. A strong striker that can also hold the ball but I think he is a little slow.

    Today's transfer rumours:

    Barcelona are ready to offer Eidur Gudjohnsen in a swap deal for Manchester United defender Gerard Pique. (Various) This is interesting but I dun think Eidur is the kind of striker Man Utd need and I dun wish to see Gerard Pique leave.

    Ex-Nou Camp youngster Pique spent last season on loan at Real Zaragoza who are expected to table a improved offer after a 7m bid was rejected. (Daily Mail)
    This guy is quite good, so I think Man Utd should retain him.

    United spending spree this summer has seen them make a 10m bid for Sampdoria striker Fabio Quagliarella, according to the player's agent. (Various)
    I think this guy will be a better bet instead of Eidur although he has no experience in the English league.

    Chelsea have rejected a bid for striker Didier Drogba from AC Milan. (Times)

    Keeper Jerzy Dudek did not have his contract at Liverpool extended and will now move to Real Madrid. (Daily Mail)

    The investigation into irregularities in the transfer system have cited managers involved in deals which have not been signed off by Lord Stevens, but whether the Premier League will divulge the names is in doubt. (Daily Express)

    Arsenal have begun talks over the 20m transfer of striker Thierry Henry to Barcelona. (Various)

    Fulham have stepped up their attempts to get West Brom duo Diomansy Kamara and Jason Koumas by offering players-plus-cash. (Various)

    The third-party who has a stake in Manuel Fernandes has scuppered a possible move for the winger to the Premiership. (Daily Express)

    Former French World Cup-winning skipper and ex-Juventus boss Didier Deschamps is another in the frame for the Manchester City job. (The Sun)

    Charlton striker Darren Bent is a target for Liverpool and Tottenham after turning down West Ham. (Daily Mirror)

    West Ham being spurned will see them now target Shaun Wright-Phillips. (Daily Mirror)

    Wolves and Norwich are battling it out for Southend striker Freddy Eastwood. (Daily Mirror)

    Celtic will splash out 5m to bring Gennaro Delvecchio and Massimo Donati to Scotland from Serie A. (Daily Record)

    Celtic are preparing a 350,000 bid for NAC Breda striker Maceo Rigters. (The Sun)

    Read the news the next few days. I think the bung clubs are gonna get revealed. Until I read it from BBC, I'll consider this still a rumour.

    Of the 17 transfers, four relate to Newcastle signings (Emre Belozoglu, Jean Alain Boumsong, Amady Faye, Albert Luque), four to Bolton (Ali Al-Habsi, Tal Ben Haim, Blessing Kaku, Julio Correia), three to Chelsea (Didier Drogba, Petr Cech, Michael Essien), three to Portsmouth (Collins Mbesuma, Benjani Mwaruwari, Aliou Cisse) and two to Middlesbrough (Aiyegbeni Yakubu and Fabio Rochemback) while one transfer has not been disclosed.

    One is Sam Allardyce, and a conflict of interest with his former agent son Craig and Bolton Wanderers.

    The other is Graeme Souness, with Stevens reporting "inconsistencies in evidence" provided by the former Newcastle manager and Kenneth Shepherd, son of Magpies chairman Freddy Shepherd.

    ooops! BBC got it. Its true then!

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/6755991.stm
    Seventeen transfers and five Premier League clubs have been named in Lord Stevens' final report into alleged transfer irregularities.
    Deals involving Chelsea, Middlesbrough, Bolton, Portsmouth and Newcastle have been highlighted in the report.

    They may face a further FA probe but there is no evidence of irregular payments to club officials or players.

    Stevens has also expressed concern about 15 agents and managers Sam Allardyce and Graeme Souness.

    United winger Ryan Giggs has been awarded an OBE for services to football in the Queen's Birthday Honours List. Our old boy, Terry Sheringham also made the list. Congrats to both of them. They deserve it.

    Which Man U fan cannot remember his magical moments in 1999

    Came on as an unexpected sub in the FA Cup and scored; set up the 2nd goal for Scholes and equalised in the dying minutes in the European Cup one week later.

    In one season he collected 3 medals.

    He has the most medals among the ManU players. Speaks volume about his loyalty and skills.

    No Knighthood for DB ah? I think he should get at least a MBE too!

    Giggs's is OBE while Teddy is MBE. They did well and deserved them.

    Except for the knighthood, I don't know the difference between the rest e.g. OBE, MBE, etc. How nice if I can add the word "Sir" infront of my name.

    OBE is 1 rank higher than MBE. Knighthood is higher. I think u cannot 'sir' la unless u receive a knighthood and is a Brit citizen.
