    & my point was that there are some things that you just don't joke about.
    Do you think the linesman would be offended/scared by what he said? If no, it doesn't matter.

    Oliver Torres is one of the names to watch out for next season. He 18 year old that is Paul Scholes-esq and everyone wants him. Plays for Atletico madrid first team regularly now. I hope we sign him up- it will make an easier transition from Scholsy retiring.

    Nah but some people will be offended though, like people who have had loved ones murdered for instance.

      Can we get over this nonsense? SAF made a joke and someone is claiming it as mildly offensive. We clearly disagree, let's move on.

      That's not the point others may be offended like people who have lost loved ones through murder as it is trivialised somewhat, same if someone were to joke about raping someone. I'm going to stop now as I don't think it is going to change opinions of others & may make me sound somewhat of a pedant & a really serious person of which I am not.

      A surreal but great send off for Sir Alex. Old Trafford was vibrant with noise and colour and on the former, loved the chants that occured during the game from Ronaldo, to Neville to Mancini!

      I was hardly concentrating on the game other than knowing it SAF's last home game But loved seeing Rio smash the winner in, he'll be dining out on that one for a good few years in terms of how well he hit it (not as good as the Liverpool goal though) and being the last scorer in SAF's last home game.

      Lovely touch for SAF to be handed the trophy by the captain and vice-captain, fitting.

      The Mirror were reporting yesterday that Rooney hadn't asked for a transfer but merely asked for his role to be clarified but SAF confirms it was a transfer request. Rooney got a mixed reception when he was announced for the medal collection although it was more cheers than boos I'd say, but slightly more. Neville's defence of Rooney is not something I'd agree with. Rooney's a grown man, he was three years ago when he gave his last request but if he stays and wants a new deal, it won't be for the same money which other clubs (Chelsea) might offer him and that might influence his decision. I'm not fussed if he stays or goes anymore.

      I have to say my heart melted a tad when SAF revealed his decision to leave was down to supporting his wife over the loss of her sister. It's very romantic in the way that she has supported him so strongly for the years he has been in management and was probably responsible for his retirement U-turn in 2002 that he's left the game to help her through her tough time.

      Thank you Sir Alex.

      Rooney said we were not ambitious enough, so we go out and buy the EPL and Bundesligue player of the year & moans now that he is no longer the main man. Haha funny how times have changed, I appreciate his efforts for the clubs pre 2010 but after that he has not been seen in the same light.

      Pundits were spot on - Rooney hasn't been able to deal with the arrival of RVP.

      RVP's been far superior to Rooney, hence Rooney is frustrated. Simple really.

      er through her tough time.

      Thank you Sir Alex.
      I love how some of the stars from his early Manchester career (i.e. Bruce and Robson) handed the cup to Vidic and Evra who handed it to SAF. It just seem perfect and how he mentioned Scholes as such an important part of his reign.

      It's Moyes' decision on Rooney now.

      If SAF was not going to retire then I assume Rooney would have put his foot down and left because it seems the relationship between the two has been damaged. As noted in the Sunday Supplement, when SAF was going to retire in 2002, guys like Yorke and Beckham who were having a tough period in the relationship with SAF, were probably hoping for a clean slate with the new gaffer but when Fergie U-turned on his decision, they ended up leaving.

      It might be the same for Rooney. Moyes/Rooney have resolved their previous issues and it seems amicable but Rooney might stay after speaking to him BUT any new contract from us will not be for the money he is on now so from a contractual point of view, might be wise to sell him. I can't see him taking less money. The good thing is the ball is firmly in our court if he wants to stay which means he'll have to take a smaller wage.
