United Talks...

Well its been confirmed. Tevez is now gone to Manchester United. We could of made a soap opera over this damn case. This has been going on before the Copa America and now its finally over! Up front we'll have Rooney and Tevez(Saha is benched) and a supporting cast of one Cristiano Ronaldo. I can see United winning the EPL for a second consecutive year. But this year their aim should be for the Champions League. They lost in the Semi's last season to winners AC Milan and lost in the finals of the FA Cup to Chelsea. FA Cup is nothing compared to the Champions League, which is why I think they should concentrate on the Champions League alot more.

In other United news, Alan Smith has finally been traded aswell. This time to Newcastle. Lets face it, he did nothing for United, except for that 7-1 fiesta over Roma where just about everyone scored. I wold of maybe prefered to keep Saha instead, because they would of gotten more money for Saha, but whatever. Hopefully United(for their sake) aren't injury bound like last season.

Back to Argentine players, Gabriel Heinze is still trying to get out of United to Liverpool. I'm not sure how things will work out for him, but it seems as if he's going to stay at Old Trafford. If he does, hopefully all of this mess dosn't interfer with him getting the #1 spot at being LB. If he ends up going to Liverpool, atleast we'll know he'll more than likely get the starting position. Personally, I would like for him to stay at United because of the fan base he has and the love for Argentines there. Heck, they'd start chanting A-R-G-E-N-T-I-N-A during matches. But who knows, he might end up going to Liverpool... Either way, we'll find out soon. It seems as if the transfer deadline can't come here fast enough.

Something to think about, Inter beat United 3-2 on Wednesday in a pre-season friendly at Old Trafford. Inter didn't have all their key players, where as United was missing Anderson, Saha, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Neville. But still, its something to think about. We'll have to watch Van Der Saar this season aswell, because the last few matches last season he was a total wreck and a half.
