Keane Suffers Broken Foot

Keane suffers broken foot

Bad news. Really bad. Not just for United but also for the Republic of Ireland.

He’s the glue that holds both teams together. This makes Ireland’s chances of qualifying for the World Cup much much harder.

The fact that’s it a metatarsal bone probably means he won’t be able to rush it. The last thing he needs to is rush back from an injury like this. If he does, it could mean a premature end to his career – which is not what any Ireland or United fan wants!

Roll on next Saturday!

The Premiership starts up again on Saturday August 13th :D

I’m looking forward to there being footie on the tv again. The Confederations Cup helped ease the pain this summer ;)

Man Utd have to face considerable opposition in Everton for their fist game back, but I’m sure they’ll manage a win. It was nice to read that Rio Ferdinand signed a new contract too.

Here’s to a new season and some great football.

FA Cup Final 2005

FA CupThis is it. Man Utd’s only chance at silverware this season. They proved last year that they could do it and I’m sure they can do it again this year.

It’s good to know that we have our star striker (Van Nistelrooy), but that Arsenal don’t (Henry). I just hope that the game doesn’t have the kind of incidents that have occurred between the two in the past. I hope every one of the Utd players keeps their cool and avoids any red cards.

Good luck Man Utd – I have faith in you!

Update: Arsenal won on penalties! They didn’t deserve to though. Utd were by far the better team on the day. I think Utd had about 8 shots on target compared to 1 for Arsenal.

History was made today too, as this was the first ever FA Cup Final to go to penalties.

No silverware this year. Bring on next season.

Glazer wins control of Man United

I’m gutted! It really looks like there’s no stopping Glazer now :(

Glazer wins control of Man United

It’s bad enough that United have Chelsea to contend with from now on. This move from Glazer, I feel, will only weaken Man United as a team and a PLC. And the cheek of the Glazer family saying they were “avid fans”! He’s never been to Old Trafford in his life. How can he be an avid fan?

I just hope that something goes wrong for him that forces him to quit this takeover bid.

Out of Europe

A disappointing exit from the Champions League again this year.

I really thought we would have been strong enough to beat AC Milan. One player in particular that I was very disappointed in was Wayne Rooney. He didn’t seem to show any desire to win. He very rarely closed down the opposition and made very few worthwhile runs off the ball. It was if he had given up on the fight before the second leg even started.

Maybe next year we’ll have better luck…. just maybe!
