firstly, i am a longtime stretford end season ticket holder, went to the roma game, going to the barcelona game and hopefully going to moscow. secondly, i have read about the past 10 pages of this and its the most ridiculous footballing conversations i have ever read, this is a poor forum to get any kind of sense from regarding football. thirdly, dont call it soccer.
ok, stfu about ronaldo. united proved against roma they are not a one man show. uniteds success against barca will not depend on one mans performance. having said that, i do agree he is the best player in the world right now. however, he will never be the best ever. not even the best ever number 7. cantona takes care of that.
uniteds midfield is outstanding with or with ronaldo. giggs hargreaves scholes ronaldo with rooney pushing up would be my choice. now worst comes to worst, put the fuckin superstar names aside and united still have a formidable field that barca will not be able to touch. nani and anderson as subs takes care of any problems. anderson i believe is one of the best in the world, he is actualy my favourite player at united.
further back we have rio, evra, wesley brown, pique and at some point vidic. this is the strongest defence in the world. wes brown is a class defender, home grown talent and people love to hate him. hes not afraid to make a tackle and will happily break henrys legs.
barca pose a threat to united however, realisticaly this is uniteds year. the current line up is probably the strongest team in the world, obviously this is biased but few diasagree. i believe it to exceed both the busby babes team and the 1999 trebble team and certainly have the means to aquire glory this year. messi out, ronaldinho out, unlucky but i would actualy rather both be in, just so people cannot blame their abscence for united trashin them over!!
chill the f**K out. theres no wes brown bashing going around on this board. and i love cantona but until ronaldos done putting on the 7 shirt for united you cant say anything just yet, and although ive only seen youtubes best was a better player with #7 shirt hell maybe even robson but cantona came in at a time and brought united back to trophies. as for the midfield id have to disagree giggs has shown glimpses of his form of last season but he wouldnt be my 1st choice every game depends on the opponent. scholes still retains the ball the best on the team but carrick and anderson need to get the starts they are the future and one day ginger prince wont be on the pitch anymore so why not get the future more time.
and give barca some credit messi should be back and bojan can be scary and its europe crazy things happen. on paper and on form united look to win but they cant cruise barca is the 1st team theyve had all CL that can trade goals with them.
but anyways UNited vs Liverpool final!!! i hope this happens so it pisses off monseur Platini and his Uefa fu**s!
