What does everyone think about the prospects for Saha at Man U?
And do you think that they'll make a good partnership (Saha and Nistelrooy)?

Manchester has a good reputation and when it merges with UMIST it will be one of the biggest in Europe. Manchester is very much a party city and smoking and cars are looked down on (at least in the centre).

This one could go for the weirdest and most vague reply of the year

I just dont see why Man Utd need to go out and fork out around 10million for Saha. They've got a great team as it is, there is no requirement fot him at United.
Man Utd are just 2 points behind the leaders Arsenal - surely United are not doing much wrong with their current squad.

Yeah, but they need a second striker in my opinion. They rely too much on nistelrooy, the same way most british clubs rely on a single striker.
To get success in europe, they need a second top quality striker (Not forlan, although when he's on form, he's pretty good).

No, Nistelrooy is at his best when he is on his own. He needs some space and he won't get as much when you bring in a second striker.

To be I honest, I reckon the need to spend on new players is a footballing 'fantasy'. Clubs reckon its an easy way to prefection.
Man Utd have a class team as it is, and relying on Van Nistlerooy is not suprising as he is one of the best strikers in the world.

Well, yeah, i know that. But the point is, what happens if Nistelrooy has a drop of form (hardly likely, i know), or gets injured or something.
If Man U want to be a european club, rather than an english one, they need a second quality striker.

Well of course, but if you look at top european clubs (and chelsea for that matter) they tend to have two big name strikers (at least).
Buying players that fit into the team is a great way of improving.
I mean, look at Chelsea. They've spent alot, and have become, because of it, genuine title contenders (although i agree, they still aren't at their potential best this season).
But there is only so far you can go with money.
I mean look at real madrid. They've only become the best team in the world (no matter how much it pains me to say it). I see your point. They are only the best side on a single planet, and you'd expect alot more from them!!!

Yep, I reckon that, but I don't think Saha is the right man for the job. He doesn't want to sit on the bank, he wants to play. He is a young boy. It might be better for Man United to get an experienced striker, who has already played his best games, but still knows how to do it.

I am thinking of Van Hooydonk.

Man Utd aren't really too reliant on Van Nistelrooy, well not as much as Henry anyways. Man Utd usually use a 4-4-1-1 system and a lot of goals do come from midfield as well (ie.Scholes) while with Arsenal, they just have Henry upfront doing the scoring with 2 fast wingers who just pass/cross. I'm not sure about the purchase of Saha though. I think he will be another Forlan, not in goal scoring sense but I don't think a Van Nistelrooy/Saha combo is good enough. I would have preferred a more world-class striker like Raul or Vieri, even if they are impossible to get (ie.Raul). Anyways, I think Man Utd should sign just one more promising young player like Van Buyten, Robben or Van der Vaart in the summer and they will be more feared again.

yeh, pires being the highest scoring midfielder, and every prem manager knowing that ljungberg and pires are the ones to watch whilst henry ties up the defence. Man U aren't reliant on van Nistelrooy, you're joking right? Arsenal wingers crossing? Do you know anything about football?

Unfortunately, not much since I support Man Utd but I do know that Arsenal are the most arrogant team in the world.

I find it funny the way people talk about football so technically, it really is just a sport - definately not worthy of paragraphs and paragraphs full of complete cobblers which can be summed up in a sentence.
