    Talking of great goals over the weekend, got to love Zlatan's.

    It looked good but I guess we'll never know if it was just hit and hope.

    Well he was definitely having a "go" at getting the ball on target. What else was he doing if not that?

    A much more debatable one was Wellbecks against Sweden - now that was a fluke....

    Or was it, etc.

    We've seen some brilliant goals this weekend, but Kassami's was definitely the best. Goal of the season so far for me. Will be very hard to beat.

    Whoever said it wasn't jaw dropping must have theirs wired shut.

    So, by all accounts, the big takeaway from fergies autobiography is that Beckham was a bit of a turd at united.

    I am sure SAF hasn't gone looking for headlines to increase sales from his book either.

    Apparently, he shipped keane out as quickly as possible after 'that' MUTV interview. Fergie decided the best thing to do was play the entire team the interview then get Roy to stand up and explain why he said those things.

    Apparently, Roy did. With gusto.

    why did he release this book?

    he doesn't need the money and it'll further damage the club as moyes battles to keep them up.

    On Owen Hargreaves: “When I signed him there was something about him I didn’t like. The thing every good leader should have is an instinct. Mine said to me: ‘I don’t fancy this.’ When he came over to Old Trafford for the medical, I still had some indefinable doubt. He was very hail-fellow-well-met. Almost too nice.”

    Ferguson agreed to Keane's suggestion that the tape be showed to the players, which only ratcheted up the tension at the club.

    "Roy asked the players whether they had anything to say about what they had just seen.

    "Edwin van der Sar said yes. He told Roy was out of line criticising his teammates. So Roy attacked Edwin. Who did he think he was, what did Edwin know about Manchester United? Van Nistelrooy, to his credit, piped up to support Van der Sar, so Roy rounded on Ruud. Then he started on Carlos. But he saved the best for me.

    "'You brought your private life into the club with your argument with Magnier,'" he said.

    "At that point, players started walking out. What I noticed about Roy that day as I was arguing with him was that his eyes started to narrow, almost to wee black beads. It was frightening to watch. I never understood his obsession with the Rock of Gibraltar affair.

    "After Roy had left, Carlos saw I was quite upset. 'He needs to go, Carlos,' I said. 'One hundred per cent,' he said. 'Get rid of him.'"

    Its a puff piece with nothing but good things to say about the club and the glaziers. I dont think it will make any difference, tbh.

    Bit weird how he refers to himself in the third person:

    "The minute a Manchester United player thought he was bigger than the manager, he had to go," he wrote. "David thought he was bigger than Alex Ferguson.

    To be brutally honest, The Rock of Gibraltar thing could have resulted in the end of Man United, and still could. The product of all that was the Glazer ownership.

    Will Roy Keane be on ITV this week I wonder? He won't be able to keep his gob shut I know.

    Thought he was quite harsh on Beckham.
    He thinks Beckham will somehow regret leaving United and not be a legend. Erm, why?
    He has arguably ascended that, by becoming a footballing icon based purely on work ethic alone, not talent.

    He's lived a better footballing life now: won everything you can win of worth at a club level.

    You could say no one is bigger than the club or the manager. But Beckham has now arguably gone on to be bigger than the sport itself, whilst in no way compromising his football experience.

    How come Rooney gets a pass, not once but twice and with a ludicrous weekly salary increase.

    He turned down the England job twice, apparently. That would've been a laugh.

    I bet that was an interesting phone call.

    'Alex, please knock one of the most successful clubs in the world on the head and come and be ripped to shreds by the nations press every three months'

    @cozeny

    Carlos Querioz or Tevez?

    The idea of him taking advice off Tevez is hilarious to me.

  • Deleted user 22 October 2013 18:33:43
    Hmm. His assistant manager or an Argentinian Troll?
