    Did you know that Podolski snubbed United for Arsenal? Sneaky SAF still trying to get one over Arsene.

    Suprised you haven't gone for Huntelaar yet. Apparently he's got a £16.8m release clause. He would be the perfect replacement for both Berbatov and Owen.

    Rooney/Huntelaar/Welbeck/Hernandez :coma:

    When SAF eventually retires, its all going downhill for MUFC...

    This is based on the assumption that you don't hire Jose or Pep.

    Mancini can't seem to decide whether he feels we'll win or drop more points.

    Before the game against Spurs: "United will beat Spurs"

    Yesterday: "United will drop points"

    Tbf to him, his English isn't as fluent as it possibly should so that's why maybe his "mind-games" attempt is a little lame. It's not really having any effects besides making him look like an idiot. He'd be better off doing what SAF does, just publicly say that to focus on your own things than others.

    Liverpool crumbling today just means I'm hoping 3pts tomorrow will seal a perfect footballing weekend.

    WTF? How in any way is Huntelaar overrated? Anywhere he has been, he has always scored goals - even with limited playing time (e.g. Madrid)

    31 goals in 50 caps for Holland. Enough said.

    You can be a good player and be overrated. How much is he going to cost? Why would we spend that much on a striker when we have excellent options already, this isn't football manager.

    Yes, that's completely true, but Huntelaar isn't one of them.

    You ask a casual fan of the Premier League what Huntelaar's first name is and they'll have no idea who you're on about.

    Was just reminiscing about the Ronaldo years .. he got 2 assists and 3 goals yesterday for Madrid. I always thought that he was better as a winger - I think United have really missed him, could always rely on good old Ronnie to get a goal when the team wasn't playing too well. Do you think he'll get a good reception when United meet Madrid in Europe? Surely he must? He's the best player I have ever seen play for United.

    As a hypothetical, how would people react to a straight swap between Rooney and Ronaldo?

    Rooney, Welbeck, Hernandez & , i imagine, Owen. + Will Keane for future. 5 strikers isnt a low amount. In a world where all is good we could get someone else but id still pick a CM first then a LB second above getting a striker.

    I'm really not too sure if I'm honest. I would like to see Rooney become our highest ever goal scorer but I rate Ronaldo higher.

    Pick Rooney over anyone.

    Cant explain it really. Just.. like having such a talented driven English player, destined to break our goal records, as the front of our club. Pick that over what else would seem a new, 'mercenary type' player any day, no matter who it is.

    To be fair, although we don't actually know all the background behind it, when Rooney was stating how he wants Utd to buy new players and then got a new mega pounds deal was almost mercenary-esque?

    Lol, you can't be serious?

    I get the whole "we want home-grown talent" thing, but Ronaldo is Ronaldo. We're talking about a guy who will be talked about along with Messi, Pele, Maradona, Cruyff etc. as the best of the best.
