Euro 2008 & United Transfers

Euro 2008
The Euro 2008 is now 6 days old. Not seeing England play in this tournament really hurts me but I guess that's the consequence for playing crappy football during the qualifiers. To be honest I think half the teams competing in the tournament aren’t half as good as England. Oh well.

Most matches have been boring. France’s football match the other day was more boring than watching grass grow. Meanwhile the World Champs have been sent back to planet earth with an embarrassing loss to Holland. It made my day. I hate Italians with a passion.

Holland has impressed me and so did Portugal. I think these two together with Germany and Spain have a great chance of winning the tournament, unless an underdog manages to nick the trophy with boring defensive tactics and, of course, luck. Remember Greece 4 years ago?

Still, if I had any money I would put it on Holland.
Meanwhile at UNITED things aren’t looking good. Ramsey has decided to join Arsenal instead of United. I heard he’s a great player but to be honest with you I have never seen him play nor watched any videos of him on Youtube therefore I cannot comment on his skill.
And there’s of course ‘The Ronaldo Saga’. The press has been linking Ronaldo with Real Madrid for a month now and I think Ronaldo is on the verge of joining Real. We knew that he wanted to play for a Spanish club sometime in his career, but to do what he has done is purely disrespectful to his manager, collegues and the supporters. On one day he says that he is going to stay with United and the next day he says that he wants to play for Real. Than his Mum comes out of her closet and says that he will surely play for United next season while her son says that if Real offer United £75million than he is willing to move on. I don’t know, maybe he wants a rise and a bettered contract or maybe he really wants to move on. But why doesn’t he stop playing with the United fans and says the darn truth. I’m starting to hate this guy, if he wants to move let him go. No one is bigger than Man Utd, not even the best player in the world.
Pique has been sold to Barcelona. His lack of first team experience this season has resulted into this move and I can't blame him. Having Vidic and Ferdinand competing with you for a place at centre back is a bit frightening. Good luck to Pique, he's a terrific player and has done his best for the United cause whenever asked to.
Manucho will most propably be loaned out to Athletico Madrid. It will take us a lot of time to finally see this striker play in a United shirt and therefore Fergie must buy a decent striker who could be a match winner instead of the wantaway Ronaldo. David Villa is interesting.
Astonishingly United hasn’t been linked with a lot of players this season. There’s just four players who have attracted Fergies attention. From the targets United have I would love to see Micah Richards join us, but being a City player that is highly unlikely.
