Did Nasri become a whore by snubbing United?


Let’s call a spade a spade, maybe all footballers are prostitutes! Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp was prepared to reveal that Samir Nasri could have – and wanted to – join Manchester United but instead went to City for the money! The always blunt Redknapp was quoted on Saturdays SportingReview.com as saying that “Nasri could have gone to United. They wanted him and he wanted to go to Old Trafford. But then City came in and offered him more money so he went to them instead. United are still the biggest team in England. City haven’t got the tradition of United, Arsenal or Liverpool.”

United 2011-12 fixtures could have been worse


While the 2011-12 Premier League fixtures have now been released it must be remembered that they are only PROVISIONAL and are open to adjustments. There are some points worth noting however. Unless harsh weather conditions force unexpected postponents – as they did last season, United are scheduled to play 9 of their 10 crunch matches against likely main rivals Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham by March 3 – around the same time as the crucial knock out round of 16 in the Champions League commences. That will only leave the mouth watering clash with City at Eastlands on April 28 before the title race comes to an end two weeks later. Many surprising twists and turns will lie ahead but at first glance, United could have been faced with a much harder task.

If City fans don’t like it – Tough, SHIT HAPPENS


This started out as a response to a Manchester City fan who goes by the name of ‘It’s Grim Oop North’. He deserved one because his mature opinions are highly respected when compared to the many inane ones that often come in by cretins from all clubs – including our own! It was instigated by a recent article written on Truly Reds comparing the goal scoring exploits of Dimitar Berbatov with those of Carlos Tevez this season. Both the article Barbatov or Tevez? Give me Berba anytime and the responses it generated from City fans can be found HERE

Berbatov or Tevez? Give me Berba anytime


It’s almost pointless to reopen the debate as to the value Dimitar Berbatov has given Manchester United since his £31 transfer from Tottenham Hotspur because everything points to his career at Old Trafford coming to an end in the summer. Looking at some statistics from this season however may give some of his critics a different perspective when compared to his former team mate Carlos Tevez at Manchester City – who is virtually being begged to remain at Eastlands. For whatever reason, some fans either take a liking to a player or they don’t irrespective of facts and figures. So analyse these  from the current season then make up your mind.

City is to Scholes what Liverpool was to Neville


Recently retired Gary Neville never tried to hide the fact that he hated losing to bitter rivals Liverpool more than anyone else in his near 20 year career at Old Trafford. Fellow veteran Paul Scholes feels the same way about Manchester City admitting that “You hate losing against anybody, but City? It’s bad, painful. I remember losing 3-1 at Maine Road and it was horrible. We probably won’t hear the last of it if we lose on Saturday especially if they go on to win the Cup. It’s an FA Cup semi final at Wembley. It’s massive. It’s the biggest game we’ve had against City for a while. Whoever loses will be devastated.”
