LIVE THREAD: Manchester United vs FC Basel

Manchester United hosts FC Basel in the second match of the Champions League group stages today.  Despite their blistering form to start the campaign, United have drawn their last match in both the...

Sorry about the lateness of this thread guys. Gene is unavailable and I dropped the ball as playing Robin to his Batman.  After the jump are the highlights to a rather unimpressive match. I truly...

New reports suggest no break for Tom Cleverley

Ligament damage and 4 weeks on the sideline is a much better prognosis than the initial 3 months if it were broken. Here's to a speedy recovery and return to form.

Wesley Sneijder has been a rumored target for Sir Alex Ferguson for years. Now it appears that the rumors may become reality.  It will be hard for United to ignore a player of Sneijder's quality...

Dmitar Berbatov to PSG is now more than just a rumor.

6

There is no way Sir Alex could turn down £20 million for him if that were in fact the amount offered. I don't agree with the end of the article that states a new attacker is brought in as a replacement. I think its more likely Danny Welbeck gets first team oppurtunities.

Not so fast, my friend.

Rovers want £25 million for Phil Jones. Apparently he has agreed to terms and passed his physical at Old Trafford but the fee hasn't been agreed upon. I can think of a lot of other players I would prefer United to chase for £20+ million........and no, Jordan Henderson is not one of them.

Manchester United look to bring in first new signing of the summer.

Phil Jones is in the final stages of finishing a £16million transfer from Blackburn to Old Trafford. *Moved to sidebar with full article now written*

Paul Scholes retires and joins coaching staff

I"m rather surprised he decided to hang it up. Hopefully he performs as well in the coaching staff as he has on the pitch.

Busby's Nuggets: Transfer rumors and a few other odds and ends

Did Sir Alex Ferguson jump the gun a little? It is odd that David de Gea would feel compelled to deny his move if he, in fact, had agreed to switch to Old Trafford.  Sir Alex obviously has other...

FA charges Fergie again.

8

He compliments Howard Webb and is still charged. I think, based on the blown calls, SAF didn't exactly gain an advantage during the match....... I wouldn't be surprised to see minimal interviews to start next year if he is actually forced from the touchline.

Possible CL Final suspension for Busquets

2

Mascherano would get the start instead, I believe. Hopefully he holds to his Liverpool form and works hard to get sent off vs United.

Is Udinese's Alexis Sanchez United bound?

11

I haven't heard much on the transfer front with the focus being on the Premier League crown and now the Champion's League final. The fact that the coach is quoted in the article lends some credibility to the rumor. If true, I'm surprised at the interest in a new winger. Valencia and Nani are young and Park's got plenty of quality years left, even though he's closer to 30 than the other 2. Thoughts and other targets rumored to be United bound? I have heard Sneijder's name thrown around but I can't (and don't want) to see it. He plays the same position that Rooney has been excelling in. I would be much more interested in a CM or outright holding mid and goalkeeper. After those 2 positions are filled I would be happy to gamble on some young players to develop like Obertan, Bebe, and Chicarito. Low risk, high reward. In other transfer news, I found it absurdly predictable that the day after City assures themselves of CL football next year, Mancini announces Ibra and Fabergas as his main targets for the summer. http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story/_/id/918291/man-city-open-door-for-cesc-and-zlatan?cc=5901 Sorry about the length of this post. It started as a link with a sentence but kept going as I rambled.

Interesting look at PFA player of the year contenders.

I can't really argue with much of what he has to say.

Three games for Nani?

+

Hopefully that's the case. I usually hate the international break but I don't think it could have come at a better time.

WTF, Carragher/Dowd?

+

How was this not red? While watching I thought it should have been but wasn't raging that Dowd showed yellow. Now I see why the players were beside themselves. Just ridiculous.

Hooray!

2

Rafael to only miss Birmingham on Saturday.

Time for Neville.......gulp.

13

This comes with a 3 game suspension, I believe. 312 may be proven correct, that Gary will play a pivotal role to earn United some points.

And it is done......

This was a quick turnaround from 24 hours ago.

Joe Cole not to Arsenal?

+

I had heard he was a done deal to the Gunners. I hope this report is true because he's excellent when healthy.

Tosic to CSKA.

Not really a loss at all.

England v USA

I have a few thoughts and want to get other readers opinions.  Number 1: I am glad we did not sign James Milner.  I heard rumors that he hadn't trained much and wasn't feeling well but that is no...

Nani hurt too

Bruised collarbone? I can't see him leaving because of a bruise. Thoughts?

Rio hurt

Let's hope he's good for next season. "Ligament damage" are not 2 words that you want to hear together though.
