It doesn’t matter which club you are. Whether you’re Hereford or Barcelona, every once in a while a club has to let go a young talent that ideally they’d have liked to have kept. It happens all the time in the football.
Entries in Juventus (10)
What sides really can win the Champions League this year? Realistically it will be one of the usual suspects, won’t it? I believe this season’s competition will be won by one of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich, the reigning champions Chelsea or Manchester United.
The 20th November, 1996. That was the first time we saw Alessandro Del Piero in the flesh, playing against Manchester United.
It was in the Champions League group game against Juventus at Old Trafford, in which the then 22 year old Italian striker scored the only goal; a 36th minute penalty.
Sir Alex Ferguson has finally landed Robin van Persie from Arsenal as both clubs have agreed on a transfer fee believed to be £24million.
Nearly 6 weeks ago since van Persie released a statement on his official website stating his intention not to sign a new contract with Arsenal, its a decision that put United, Manchester City and Juventus on red alert as the tabloids speculated that City were the early front runners for the Dutch mans signature.
Tom Cleverley has been hailed as the future midfield maestro at Manchester United - for a young player who had a decent loan spell at Wigan Athletic last season, that is a strong statement and maybe he's been over hyped just a little too much too soon.
Carrying on from my previous article which looked at the unsavoury side of Roy Keane, it's worth remembering constrating his attitude towards his on-pitch violence with his view of one of the most inspiring and jaw-dropping performances by any football player, anywhere, at any time.
Yesterday Wes Brown and John O’Shea completed their anticipated moves to Sunderland yesterday ending their long careers at Old Trafford. Between them the defensive pair had completed 28 years’ service at Manchester United amassing an incredible 753 appearances during that time in which they picked up trophies almost every year.
Yesterday rumours started that Dimitar Berbatov was going to be sold to Paris St Germain for a reported £10million in the next couple of weeks as apparently Sir Alex Ferguson had had enough of our no.9’s languish style at Old Trafford.
Yesterday was a very contrasting day in the history of Manchester United. On the one hand we had Gary Neville’s testimonial against Juventus, which saw a fantastic crowd of around 42,000 turn up to wave goodbye to probably the greatest right back the club has ever seen.
