    I reckon its probably best keeping him over at Antwerp. At least then he can continue his development playing consistent competitive matches. Realistically speaking, he's not exactly going to break into Utd's starting 11 is he. And now that we're out of the carling cup - it's going to need serious injuries to saha and co, before he gets any serious playing time.
    Do you think Liverpool can catch up to man u?

    Stevie Gerrard thinks so - and I agree with him.

    ^ No. i think its too much of a gap to bridge, 13 points behind at the moment it certainly can be achieved, but we'l have to lose 4 games for you to catch up to us bearing in mind pool would have to win those 4 games.

    I dont see it happening. SG is just keeping the hopes up.

    It's dark outside; time for you to get Stanley from his box, and stripe that nice family that's walking past. Is neo-Nazis tonight or Thursday? I can never remember.

    yh anything can happen in football but our record speaks for itself in stamford bridge, not lost for long, mourinho hasnt lost home for around 5 years with porto and chelsea

    thats why we feel confidant of beating man utd in our own back yard

    but this time it will be like a war against man utd and only one team will loose and thats man utd

    Your team hasn't hit top form for about 6 months now. Chelsea are at their best when their defence is most ruthless, for which so far it hasn't been anything near.

    all because of gallas
    if we kept him it would be good
    khalid boulharous-is not world class and he has to get used to the premiership he has to realize this is not wwe, its the premiership, and even vidich pushes people but he gets away with it, so i would only advise him to push when he knows he will get away with it, sometimes i feel he doesnt want the ball he wants the man

    chelsea is still winning even though they havent hit top form and if they will, you dont know what will happen.
    as long as they win, thats the main thing at the end of the day. sometime you cant win well, so you have to win ugly.thats why arsenal struggle at times they cant win ugly

    GLAZERS SETTING ASIDE £25m TO PAY FOR NEXT OLD TRAFFORD 'SUPERSTAR'

    Manchester United will restrict Sir Alex Ferguson’s annual transfer expenditure to £25 million except for a one-off “superstar” purchase who meets the Glazer family’s desire for an icon to play alongside Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to documents seen by The Times.

    In two 60-page presentations outlining their business plan for the refinancing of the club earlier this year, the Glazers made clear that United’s annual transfer kitty will remain £25 million, despite their belief that operating profits will increase to more than £100 million by 2011. The only exception relates to an extra £25 million set aside for a “superstar”, seemingly a headline act who would raise the club’s profile off the pitch as well as on it.

    Last year, The Times disclosed details of the Glazers’ original business plan, including controversial ticket-price rises. The new documents reveal the latest debt figure as £656 million, which is forecast to reach £733 million by 2012, and that the total costs of the takeover were £831 million, including bank and legal fees of £41 million. Annual interest payments have risen from £20 million to £40 million as a result of the refinancing.

    The documents also reveal the Glazers’ belief that no other English club comes close to United’s commercial prowess and that “Chelsea’s lack of brand appeal and limited fan-base beyond the UK make it a less compelling commercial partner”.

    They say that tickets at Old Trafford, which were subject to a minimum 12.5 per cent price rise this season, remain “undervalued” and will increase by a further 36 per cent by the start of the 2012-2013 campaign.

    Television contracts will continue to soar, increasing the club’s annual media revenue from £46 million to £78 million by 2012. It is also revealed that players’ salaries will soar as a result of new television deals, with the squad’s wage bill (including bonuses) increasing from £53.2 million last season to £78.1 million by 2012. Increased sponsorship prospects will see the club’s annual commercial revenue rise from £56 million to £78 million by 2012 while the documents also recommend that the team should travel “to all corners of the globe” on pre-season and end-of-season tours to exploit the club’s brand.

    Red Football, the Glazers’ investment vehicle, receives £1.6 million a year from United. The report makes no mention of the long-rumoured plan to sell and lease back Old Trafford or to break away the club’s rivals by pursuing separate broadcasting deals. Indeed, the Glazers describe the central distribution of broadcasting rights as “essential”.

    The Glazers, whose initial plans for the club were described as “aggressive” by David Gill, the chief executive, regard their latest plan as “conservative”, but in many areas they speculate boldly. Predictions of playing performance are relatively cautious — a third-placed finish in the Barclays Premiership and progress to the last 16 of the Champions League each year — but their projected commercial and broadcasting revenues rely heavily on the latest football boom being sustained.

    One area where have yet to speculate is in the transfer market. While Chelsea spend on average £75 million a year, the Glazers believe “£25 million of annual net player spend is sufficient to support forecast growth over the next five years” although an incremental £25 million capital spend bucket is available to the club.

    A spokesman for the Glazers declined to respond to The Times revelations last night beyond saying that, “if the manager feels the right player is available, then Manchester United, as the world’s richest club, will seek to secure him.”
