Manutd.com: Reds Announce Tevez Capture

Update 3: The Beeb’s got this report. According to that Kia Joorabchian’s lawyers say, the deal has progressed with the “knowledge and permission” of West Ham United. Wonder what will happen now. Expect the deal to take a while.

Update 2: Eggert Magnussen has now opened his mouth. Wants Tevez to spend his next three years with the Hammers. Pah!

Update: Sky Sports seem to have confirmed it. It’s a two year loan!

We were talking about not believing the Tevez rumours until they came from the horse’s mouth. Now we think that the horse has indeed spoken (or umm… neighed?).

Anyway, we found this link [via UnitedRant forums] which has the headline saying Reds Announce Tevez Capture, but no content.

The page seems like a website template that’s ready for a future press release. It’s got the indications that at least confirm that our reps are indeed in talks with Tevez’s reps at an advanced stage. Of course this page is not public (as in visible links) but is accessible through the URL.

Websites anyway do such things in the anticipation of something big, so if the deal does fall through, the page will be pulled out. Simple as that.

Anyhow we played with the urls and got some more interesting headlines not yet declared by Manutd.com. But if these events do happen then they will be declared in earnest. So you know where to go first when you hear of them. Don’t you?

Anyway here are some of the most probable future breaking news that the official site is prepared for.

Note: For the sake of suspense, we haven’t disclosed the actual headlines. You need to follow the links to see what they are.

Headline 1

Headline 2

Headline 3

And finally, last but not the least, the most significant future headline you might want to read. Be very, very afraid.

Headline 4

    Looks like God overlooks things too, just like a human.

    PS: cant wait for mr tevez to come.

    Keep playing with the url number at the end.

    Some blockages on the road though, the Premier League wants the transfer fee paid directly to WH and not to Tevez’s agents. Could this become a tug of war???

  13. karl

    6 July 2007 at 10:11

    @Hiram Gakembu

    One way of playing it – I think – is to pay an amount to West Ham this year, and next year, after the whole Tevez issue has been put to rest, pay the rest to Kia. The Premier League can’t deduct points then…

  14. Ahmed Bilal

    6 July 2007 at 10:14

    love the last line.

    the removed the tevez template page this morning, presumably because someone found out that fans were linking to it and visiting it and using it to claim that the transfer had happened

    want to bet that they just moved it around?

    Hi the news is the Tevez deal is done for a two year loan deal with the option of buying him and he is undergoing a medical at venezuela.

    If the reports are true, i expect many to jump on the man utd supporters bandwagon now. Put tevez and Wayne Rooney together, you get 2 strong players that can make blitzing runs from the midfield. Need a poacher?Rest either and put Saha on. Midfield, Scholes,Carrick, Hargreaves.3 outstanding midfield players who can read the game very well.Attacking mid?Anderson. Flank? Giggs,Ronny,Nani,RIchardson(i think he is one for the future.)

    I’m sure, people, that by just stating the offence, everybody’s mouth is watering, and i’ve havent started on the defence yet.

    Next year(2008), 2 young wing backs from fluminese are coming (Fabio, Rafeal, Wing backs,when they turn 18).
    SAF is smart. He is investing heavily on a team that is good, and can last for the next 4-6 years.I rather he spent 100 mil in a season forging a team for the next 5 years rather than spending like 50 mil a season trying to balance the team, every season.

    AND THIS IS FOR SAF
    LISTEN TO ME! SELL FLETCHER.

    I’m still wondering how fletcher is here. His passing isnt good, he doesn’t have the stamina, he cant score, and he gives the ball away easily.

    I just think fletcher isn’t meant for such a big club.He might do well in a club of maybe (no offence) Aston Villa rank.He isn’t right for this club.

    Hello My Children….This is your friend GOD.

    Thanks nuttz and indian devil for your help. I should have included both Nani and Pique. However, do not correct me again in public or you might have to spend the rest of eternity watching Chelsea games in Hell with the likes of Judas, Hitler, Tom Cruise, and Nichole Richie.

    Anyways, I see how must of you are as exited as I am for our new Adquisition. Tevez is now undergoing a Medical in Venezuela, a country with Lots of Oil and Beautiful Women, and we’ll soon be part of our fierce squad.

    I’m here also to easy your mind about those reports claiming that the FA might interrupt Tevez’s move. My Children, please be calm – This is only the press attempt to generate headlines.

    We all know it is expected that the FA will take a closer look into this matter, but United will not be stupid enough to do something that might cost them extra money or even points, specially since the West Ham’s fiasco.

    So, ease your minds my children. It is just a matter of time.

    GOD BLESSES YOU ALL!

    Shawn i agree with everything you said, until you spoke about Richardson and fletcher,if you swap those two names around, then everything will be good, man u have alot of youngsters, same as arsenal, but what SAF is doing that arsene wenger isnt, is mixing that youth with experience, arsenal have hardly any experience in the squad, they need a player like henry to explain to the youngsters how to act in certain situations, but instead he sells them, what SAF does is keep the old to explain to the youth, for example, OGS can talk to rooney and possible tevez, giggs to ronny anderson and nani, scholes to fletcher and eagles, ferdinand to pique evans, heinze to rafael and fabio so on and so forth, that way the players get help, i was just watching a video of man u’s photo shoot of their new kit, the players kid around with each other have fun with each other, whilst ferdinand was doing an interview rooney pulled down his shorts, if this friendship can be transfered to the new signings, rather than a bellemy risse man u will be deadlier than ever

    Calm down everyone 🙂

    It may not guarentee the league next season; but will guarentee the tradition of United will be kept. Attack, Attack, Attack.

    Unless Chelsea send us all to sleep.

    Here’s my pretend lineup for next season

    Var Dar Sar,

    Neville, Vidic

    Hargreaves

    Carrick Scholes

    Ronaldo Anderson Giggs

    Nani Tevez Rooney

    Saha

    ! Even with only 2 defenders there aren’t enough places for everyone 🙂

    What about Rossi, Eagles, Evans, Smith ? I draw the line at Richarson, please send him to Sunderland.

  30. Steve from CA

    6 July 2007 at 23:34

    Shawn,
    I think you are mistaken. According to wikipedia, the Fluminese guys aren’t that young. Rafael is 27 and there is no player by the name of Fabio on their roster. There is, however, a Fabinho but he is 30. I don’t really think we need another left back. Evra is only 25, and unless we sell Heinze, he will have a sub all season, meaning fatigue shouldn’t be a huge factor. What we do need is a young right back to come in and learn from Neville. I guess we have Bardsley but he wasn’t outstanding for Villa. Maybe SAF will bring up Kieran Lee more often to learn from Gary. It wouldn’t be a bad idea. And if things don’t go well, SAF can try and find someone in Jan. or next summer.

  31. Aus_Devil

    7 July 2007 at 00:55

    Steve – look them up under Rafael Silva and Fabio Silva in Wikipedia. I don’t think they’ve played top level for Fluminense yet so may not be listed under their squad. They both turn 17 in a couple of days (on July 9th) so should be able to link up with United next year, assuming they continue to develop.

    Remember we also have Simpson returning after an impressive loan stint at Sunderland – another RB option – but I agree, it is an area we may well need to bring in a replacement for.

  32. Lee

    7 July 2007 at 06:24

    Yes. Aus_devil is correct, Fabio and Rafael (or Raphael) are not in Fluminese’s senior team yet. I believe their wiki’s are: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fabio_(footballer) and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rafael_%28footballer%29

  33. Sam

    7 July 2007 at 09:09

    yes both are apparently very wing back like in their approach. very attacking down the wings. watch some videos in you tube… i think its fabio who is captain of the brazil youth team. apparenlytheir strongest player in the latest tournament. not to shabby!!

  34. Lee

    7 July 2007 at 09:53

    Fabio is captain of Brazil U-17, and scored a goal from a bicycle kick before! Not bad for a defender. Man Utd also seem to be in for Federico Macheda, Rodrigo Pereira Possebom and Lulinha.
