Man Utd Headlines 27 May 2007

Back to the roundup of the day where we go around feeding off scraps from newspapers and rags alike. Although we avoid the rags. (even though we secretly like some of them… you know, guilty pleasures)

Anyway, here are the some of the news stories of the day…

1. Tottenham have apparently sent the rumour mills into overdrive. Apart from clinching the signing of Gareth Bale (who was also heavily linked with United) they have now been linked to Nani and *gasp* Ryan Giggs. Alright, I read these stories on one of them tabloids but while Nani seems like an acceptable rumour, the Giggs one seems totally nutty. Even if they throw Berbatov in the mix, it is going to be a no-gain deal for Spurs. Now I don’t know why I even brought this up. And about Bale, I am not so sure about us missing out a chance to sign a hot young talent. Honestly, he would be languishing in the reserves with our left back spot well covered. Unless we bought him with a plan of converting him to a left winger.

2. Sepp Blatter has complimented United for deciding to call off their Malaysia trip. You know when I would compliment them? When they decide to call off the entire Asian adventure and instead head stateside, possibly a game against LA Galaxy and a reunion with Beckham. Apart from giving me a chance to watch them in action, it is also a potential bigger money spinner, with all the Beckham hype doing the rounds in the American media.

3. And finally Mikael Silvestre wants to stay on and fight for his place. Umm… okay. 🙂
Good for us though. At least we will have him in the event of both Evra and Heinze getting injured.

And that’s all for today folks. Hope to get my fingers up and running tomorrow.

    Manchester United doing a States tour?

    Hell! The Americans knows nuts about football and there would probably be more fans in college basketball game than a Manchester United versus LA Galaxy game.

    Actually they seem to know more about football than is being made out to be in the media. Did you know that every kid in the US starts off playing soccer before he shifts to the other popular games due to peer pressure?
    Anyway, football right now sells more that it has ever done before in the US, while my desire for them to come over is more from a selfish perspective that’s all. 🙂

    football (or soccer as it is called here) is big in the US. i’m in college here and people here know as much about football as they do about basketball, especially the EPL…….
    dont forget whenever chelsea or man utd or any big team has come here, they’ve played in front of sellout crowds!!

    I saw Real Madrid last summer play against D.C United up in Seattle at Qwest field. It was the first game Ruud played in a Real shirt. Point being though we had over 88,000 people attending that match. Just a few more than you could fit into a basketball arena, or OT for that matter. I think it would definately be lucrative.
