ESPNsoccernet - England - Ferguson to step down at United before 2012
Gonna happen sometime :(
Ha, my favorite rumor from BBC
Barcelona striker Thierry Henry was set to join Manchester United for £10m until the Spanish side's new boss Pep Guardiola blocked the move two weeks ago.
How about that goal from Beckham yesterday
I mean up 2-1 and he had plenty of time to measure it up. But still pretty cool!

It wasn't long ago when Sheva was considered by some to be the best forward in the world. He could play as a striker and as a withdrawn forward, excelling at both for MIilan.
When it discussions came up regarding which strikers could excel in every league, I always had Sheva on mine. I don't think anybody would have thought that Sheva would have been so poor in the Prem. I mean, John O'Shea outscored him in his debut season. John O'Shea!!!
By the way Mr. Irrelevant, what is your take on Luis Fabiano. Man United have been linked to him dating back to the last few days of the prem season. My thoughts on him are his talented with good size and speed but he's ****ed up in the head. Has he had any ugly incidents in Spain lately? United need a proper #9 striker. I would love Berbatov but a lot of teams are in on him. Fabiano could be a good fall back option.
I wouldn't be surprised that if Stoichkov becomes an assistant coach at Barca that Berbatov would move to Barca. That said, why don't Man Utd go for Samuel Eto'o?
BTW, my name is IRREVERENT, not IRRELEVANT. :tongue:
Oh, and I totally agree about Shevchenko, Chelsea ruined his career. I think he's still got chops though.
Ferguson wants a big man, 6+ feet tall, someone like Berbatov/Huntelaar. Saha is a good player but just can't be relied upon. If he stayed healthy he'd hit 15+ goals a year easy, especially getting service from our MF and Rooney/Tevez. I think Eto'o would do damage as well but is not the type of striker United need.
