4-0 today at Wigan for United to move 4 points clear again at the top :yahoo: :grind dance: :applause: 2 from Hernandez, 1 from Rooney and 1 from Fabio and that was a big win for us today with the away form we've produced this year and the next 2 games coming up the next 8 days being away to Chelsea and away to Liverpool!! :)>>>> :cheer:

Is it true that Man.Utd. is going to transfer A. Valencia to an Italian team?

There hasn't been any reports of this over here and nothing said at the games or anything so right now Valencia is looking to come back from injury and should be with United for the forseable future :)

Serie A just lost a CL spot to Bungdesliga.  :(

Chris, I understand that all European leagues will be taking a page out of American team sports' principle of equitablity, and instituting a salary "fairness" policy. This should have a big impact on United, right? That's a smart move and long overdue. Should make the PL more enjoyable for fans of 17 other clubs'.

:good:

Nah right now Babble this won't work out like the American sports as instead this in 2-3 years time will just ban European teams 'potentially' from playing in the Champions League if the club/owners are in big amounts of debt. I'm not sure how thats going to stick in today's current financial market to be honest. Should a salary cap come in(which I can't see happening to be honest- at least for 10 years, I'd say more if ever) then the first 2 teams that would be stuufed with their way bill would be Man City and Chelsea.

United are going nowhere Bab, other than towards a 12th Premiership title in 19 years :)~ :king:

I just saw a match where Wozniacki wearing a Liverpool t-shirt (Steve Gerard's).   I thought she supported Fernando Torres.

Yeah she warmed up in that 'crap' the other day didn't she :\ I guess somebody has to support them :rofl_2: she was given a shirt a while back that was Liverpool and she's stuck with them as her 'team' But yeah originally her favourite was Torres but I guess with him going its Gerrard next.

Its definitely the 4th priority trophy each season Babble is the Carling Cup but 1 that is always nice to win but for the elite teams not a crucial trophy to get each season. However, its been 6 years since Arsenal last won a trophy and they really do need 1, not only the players and club but also the fans. Its been far too long for a big and great club like Arsenal to go without sliverwear and being such huge favourites today and losing is a huge blow and could really devastate their whole season now as they expected this one and with them battling for the Premier League and really being United's last challenge, facing Barcelona in the Champions League in 10 days and facing us in the FA Cup in 13 days time this could derail the whole season if things go wrong these next 2 weeks.

That goal was just unbelievable to give away! To lose a Cup Final like that is devastation but unbelievable for Birmingham to win a trophy after over 50 years without 1 and to put in such a battling performance, hang in and take the trophy.

You would certainly take that without a moments hesitation over winning this trophy, however, thats one of the toughest asks in football right now and going into Barcelona I do worry for you guys with your defence and goalkeeper situation.

I love our young keeper, but our centerbacks are s**te.

Yeah your keeper as you say is young so he needs time and a real chance so he could be good in the future, but you are soooooo right about your centre halves! They are terrible and could just be your downfall this season.

How many matches per season  does a "regular" footballer  play (in all competitions  FA, Carling, CL, PL, etc) I would like to know the average,

Would depend at what team they are at as say somebody who plays for a team in the Champions League and has a good run there and good runs in the other Cup competitions can expect to play close to 60 games(however, no player will these days ever start every game) whereas if you go out of the Cups early and aren't in a European competition you may play just over 40 games.

Doesn't get a whole lot bigger than tomorrow nights game as United go to Chelsea :)>>>> with Chelsea knowing nothing but a win keeps their very slim title hopes alive, whereas a draw will certainly mean its a 2 team race between United and Arsenal, with a United winning being a HUGE step towards the record 19th league title. It should be a great game and I can't wait for tomorrow night!

GO GO GO UNITED!!! :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

I asked about  " the games per year average"  because it's really disappointing when a "modest team" gets to participate in an International Cup, always comes with the lame excuse " our squad is very limited, very reduced, we can only do well in one tournament , our players can't play more than 5 games per month ", so they kind of give away the other competition.  That's why I was wondering if there do you have some kind of secret physical training.

DISGRACEFUL!!!!!  :mad1: :ranting: :cursing: :ranting: :cursing: :ranting:
If it wasn't for United I would seriously fcuk football off completely!! 3 times in a row cheated out of it vs Chelsea and once again several times today Chelsea used their 12th man to great effect. Get VIDEO technology or get used to being a laughable and 2nd rate sport!!! 1-0 up a halftime thanks to a great Rooney goal we should have had a penalty in that half too but then 2nd half Chelsea got it back to 1-1, then they should have had a man sent off and then get a penalty from a clear dive.
