    Zaha was good, as I said earlier he has bags of talent but is very frustrating.

    Really hope its not true about Rene, one of the reasons people advocated getting Moyes was because he wouldn't gut the backroom and he is. Eric Steele and Rene are very good coaches and big losses.

    Damn it! I wanted Watford to go up.
    **** Watford, they are essentially Udinese B, whereas there's a lot to like about Palace. Much happier we have palace in the league than an Italian feeder team.

    I would be extremely worried if the rumours of Rene's impending departure are true as Moyes, maybe in trying to show he is asserting his own judgement and authority, gets rid of a coach who has developed a strong relationship with the players and has been widely praised.

    I'm not surprised Rene wants to leave if he was offered a step backwards of a youth team role when he has clearly succeeded working with the first team and rumours of FC Twente keen to take him on as a coach.

    I really hope Moyes, does not bring Phil Neville onto his coaching staff. It just seems his ex-Everton coaching staff are being "nailed" onto join and I don't mind if he brings some of them but Neville, as well as he has done in his career, is no where near ready for a number two role. If it was Gary Neville then great because he's shown his knowledge and has had a successful career in terms of performing at the top level but Phil, only seems to be regarded as a future coach due to this MOTD appearances and the England U21 job he'll be doing in the summer and as one of Moyes' ex players and a former United player.

    Phil Neville to replace Rene is on apparently, thoughts?

    Rene was never going to stay really. Moyes takes on more responsibility training etc wise than SAF did so he would have had to accept a lower role and he is too good for that. Neville, who knows Moyesand the club, best of a bad situation I guess?

    Hard to comment about staff. Even with our own it's a lot of assumptions and guess work to see how good they are, let alone other clubs staff

    Rene usually gets the most credit of the back-room staff. Tbh, I'm not in a position to judge his credentials, or to have a credible opinion on him leaving.

    Giggs to join the coaching staff as player/coach for a season then? hope he does tbh, can't imagine a better guy to have involved, for Moyes he is the perfect guy to get in the good books of as well, if he gets Giggsy on side then the rest of the lads should follow as he's the most experienced guy there.

    hopefully a good signing if true as well!

    Thiago will be persuaded by the Mighty Moysie. I hope Big Dave is telling Thiago that he'll pretty much start every league and CL game next to Carrick.

    Falcao going to monaco and their recent mega buck signings might evoke a response by PSG for Rooney, this is bad news unless Bale wants to come United. The fact that Giggs is getting involved in transfers does make you believe that Bale could be the mega signing of the summer. If Bale comes to United and produces the same form as he did at spurs he will become an instant superstar all over the world his name will be known everywhere like Ronaldo/Messi/Rooney in a couple of years but if he goes Madrid he will always be in CR7 shadow. We have created some of the biggest superstars in football to allow them players to make big bucks.

    Doesn't that picture scare you a little apparently yesterday Barca and United officals met, sources biased to Madrid have been saying its for Thiago but sources biased to Barca have been saying its for De Gea or Fabregas, thing is if its for Thiago then why are we meeting up as long as we meet the clause its just Thiago's decision, and I don't see Cesc coming to OT. By the way Thiago played the last game for barca and was brilliant, literally he seems like a mould between Giggs and Scholes in one he's amazing dunno why tito doesn't rate him like pep did, and if he comes him it might make de gea stay for ages. Thiago, Jones and Kagawa in midfield in 2-3 years would be some midfield.

    Edit : Thiago: "Exit rumours? After the U21 European championships, we will see how things stand."

    “As I live my life, I am very happy. I really enjoy being at Barcelona because my experiences have been very good,” Thiago reflected to reporters today.

    “My future? We’ll see how things are after the European Championships.

    “David de Gea wants me at United? Each player wants what is best for their team. Like I say that hopefully he will come to Barca, he says the same about me.

    “I think it is not something to take too seriously.

    “De Gea in for Valdes then? As I have said, you never want a player of Valdes’ stature to leave, he is the best goalkeeper in the history of Barcelona, he has given us so many titles here that it is well worth him staying, but it is his desire and it must be respected.”

    The midfielder was asked of La Rojita’s mix of players heading out to defend the European Championship title this summer, with some struggling for playing time at their clubs.

    “Of the 23 that we have here, a high percentage are starters at their clubs, whilst others have looked to do well when given their opportunities, despite the rhythm of games.

    “We have been together for a while now, though, and in the end it is football, it is inherent and we all want to do well.”

    SAF asked Scholes + Giggs their thoughts about signing RvP before it happened, something like that, such is the importance of the senior players behind the scenes and how they think the players will react. Now SAF has gone, Giggs taking a slightly more pro-active rather than reactive involvement with potential signings wouldn't be too surprising.

    Of course he'll sign it. He won't return to United anytime soon, given that SAF has left and Barca have stumbled a little.

    Madrid will not let Ronaldo go, he is the only reason they were able to attract big players and names, Kaka and Benzema the other 2 galacticos have been a failure, but for Ronaldo his time at RM has been depressing, he's gone from arguably the best player in the world to most people the 2nd best player in the world, has won only 1 reasonable trophy and hasn't been fully appreciated.
