Michael Carrick says he can't choose between former Manchester United team-mates Paul Scholes and Cristiano Ronaldo to pick the most gifted player he's ever played alongside. The England international also includes opponents Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta in the same bracket. He said: "Scholesy's a genius.
Letter From Philip Townsend regarding Manchester United's Summer Transfer Window !!! pic.twitter.com/GVgqxWeheZ Michael Dixon (@RetroRedDevil) September 17, 2013 Manchester United have written to fans who contacted them to express concern about the club's performance during the transfer window. Supporters who wrote to complain about the lack of summer signings have received replies defending manager [.
Manchester United team-mates Rio Ferdinand and Anders Lindegaard have taken each other on in a duel. The pair ditched the traditional cowboy gear and pistols in favour of... a penalty kick. Ferdinand and Lindegaard battle it out under the watchful eye of Patrice Evra.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was in attendance at a Manchester United team-bonding meal organised by manager David Moyes last night. Rooney is still being strongly linked with a move to Chelsea before the transfer window closes, but he went along to the function at Deansgate's Australasia restaurant, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Patrice Evra has spoken of his bromance with former Manchester United team-mate Ji Sung Park. The left-back has revealed he hasn't been able to settle down with a new roommate for away trips since his South Korean buddy departed for QPR last summer. He told the United's official website: "I know a lot of people [.
Robin Van Persie ended his Manchester United goal drought from the penalty spot during today's victory against Stoke. He obviously thought his neat spot-kick had earned him some plaudits when Geoff Shreeves oversaw the presentation of the man of the match award during his post-game interview. The only problem being that Sky Sports viewers knew [.

Bunny ears: they'll never got old. Manchester United defender Patrice Evra pranked Fulham's Dimitar Berbatov in the time-honoured fashion when he spotted the Bulgarian was being photographed following Saturday's FA Cup match between the two sides.
Gary Neville's Monday Night Football analysis is usually a great watch (although it's always a bit of a shame when, like last night, it's better than the match that follows). Looking back at Manchester United's draw at Tottenham on Sunday, Neville put to bed the rumours that defender Nemanja Vidic fancies keeper David De Gea.
The first meeting of the Association Football Players Union in 1907 was chaired by United player Billy Meredith. At the time, the FA put a Â£4 wage cap on the players' salaries and lacked compensation for injured players. This union campaigned against the FA to make things fairer for footballers.
Two years later, the FA withdrew its recognition of the union because it didn't like its authority questioned.
Manchester United plays Barcelona in a friendly this afternoon from Gothenburg, Sweden. For viewers

United team news:Â De Gea; Valencia, Ferdinand, Vidic,...
Until now David De Gea has only been making his Manchester United team-mates feel uncomfortable
when they were forced to watch him underneath the high ball. But it now emerges that they should
also be uncomfortable if they nod off in front of him. De Gea showed a total lack of respect for
fellow Olympian [.
Most 37-year-old men don't have jobs that involve deliberately bumping into colleagues in their
mid-twenties in an attempt to mislead a competitor. But Ryan Giggs does. The Welshman worked this
oh-no-look-how-clumsy-we-are free-kick routine with Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney during
last night's victory at Blackburn.
There was a time not so long ago, a Manchester United team travelling to North London only meant
one thing, and that was to get one over arch rivals Arsenal for the title. Now, with Spurs knocking
on everyone's doorstep, ...

Horseplay Michael Owen is a brave bloke. With little or no prospect of first-team football anymore,
his horse racing interests are practically his main career now. He is now letting Wayne Rooney
wangle his way into his stables and ruin that for him too. Rooney is buying a horse at Owen's Manor
House Stables in [.
This morning Sir Alex woke hoping to find that last night was simply a terrible dream, hoping
that his Manchester United team had not become the first finalists not to make it out of the group
the following season. But last night was no dream, and Thursday night appearances on channel 5 are
the embarrassing reality.
Each Premier League season 20 clubs field teams to contest the league. So over the course of a
decade, 200 teams (20 clubs * 10 seasons) have competed for the championship in England's top tier
of football. One things fans love to debate is who's been "best"? And what does it mean for a team
to be "best"?
For Sir Alex Ferguson the current international break could not have come at a better time. After a
blistering start to the season, his Manchester United team have looked very laboured over the last
couple of weeks and even though ...

Cristiano Ronaldo adds to Higuain's opener and puts Real Madrid 2-0 up against Barcelona after

It's never a good time for a wife and girlfriend jealously break, per say, but take a reprieve

Nemanja & Ana Vidic

This opportunity was definitely not going to be missed. A once-in-a-red-moon chance to see our
Manchester United Team in training â€“ in the flesh! Time to perhaps experience our Club at work,
rather than the fine veneer â€˜on show' in a match. Tickets sold quickly, ours had been bought four
weeks ago on the first morning of sales.
For most Manchester United fans, this season has been a downer. For the first time since the
2001-02 season, the fans find their beloved team not contesting for any cup final. The Europa
League, which was seen as a walk in the park, turned out to be an embarrassment for Sir Alex and
Dimitar Berbatov's agent, Emil Danchev, has confirmed today that the player will be leaving the
club in the summer, as everyone thought. Berbatov hasn't even made the bench in recent matches and
his agent has claimed the player doesn't feel comfortable getting paid for nothing.
"Mitko appreciates the money but that was always secondary to him, he just wants to
play," he said.
Sir Alex Ferguson hailed the resilience of his Manchester United team after admitting they had been
second best to Norwich for large parts of their 2-1 victory at Carrow Road, where Ryan Giggs netted
a stoppage-time winner on his 900th appearance.
After falling behind to a close-range header from Paul Scholes on seven minutes, the Canaries
rallied and forced David de Gea into a string of fine saves.
Paul Scholes made an incredible return to the Manchester United team today after retiring last
summer. Despite not playing football for eight months, Scholes was brought on for the last half an
hour against City in the FA Cup 3rd round game today.
Incredibly, he made more passes than any City player did all game, with a 97% completion

Manchester United hosts the Cottagers (3pm, ESPN2) in a match that will pit Clint Dempsey

Gary Neville has reflected on Wayne Rooney's red card in England's Euro 2012 qualifying game
against Montenegro on Friday.
"What gets me is that now everyone will get caught up in the circus and furore surrounding
the sending-off," said Neville. "The most disappointing thing about his red card is that
it distracts from the major issue.
Arsenal: The season that promised so little duly delivers - originally posted on
Cesc Fabregas was overtly forthcoming in his love and admiration for Arsenal as he left for
boyhood club Barcelona. His sentiments were admirable and no doubt appreciated by many an Arsenal
fan sympathetic with his situation, but ultimately it was of little consolation as their club lost
a genuinely world class player.
What exactly did Luis Suarez say '10 times' to Patrice Evra during Liverpool's game with Man United
in October? Speculation has reached fever-pitch over the last few weeks, and Suarez has admitted
that he called Evra something 'his Manchester United team-mates call him', but the actual word in
question has not been publicly confirmed.

When United, a drama based on the true story of the Busby Babes and the

door back on its battered hinges and slam it in the face of a Manchester United team who thought
Fernando Torres at his best, was an absolute terror. Just ask Nemanja Vidic. Or even the whole
Manchester United team for that matter. There is no fluke that El Nino became the fastest Liverpool
player to reach the 50-goal mark. His searing speed, excellent touch and great dribbling skills
made him a Kop hero as soon as he arrived at Anfield.
A little over a decade ago, South Melbourne FC took part in the FIFA Club World Championship as
champions of Oceania, trying their luck in a group containing England's Manchester United, Brazil's
Vasco da Gama and Mexico's Nexaca. South Melbourne could then claim to be Australia's most
successful club, winners of four National Soccer League titles.
