Sir Alex Ferguson says a change in formation after half-time was the key factor in helping the Reds come from a goal down to beat Wigan on Saturday. :shock:

After going behind to a Leighton Baines screamer after just four minutes, the Reds struggled to find their rhythm early on. :o

But the introduction of Ryan Giggs after the break and the decision to move Wayne Rooney from wide left into centre inspired United to a 3-1 victory.

"The change in formation was a big factor," the boss told Sky Sports after the game. "Wayne produced a great performance in the second half after we moved him into the middle. :)

"Ryan made a real difference when he came on. I was planning to give him about thirty minutes or so but he was keen to get on and I decided to change things at half-time. I thought all the front players were a real handful in the second half and we could have scored a few more goals."
:D

Nemanja Vidic's powerful header drew United level after the break, before Louis Saha fired a sensational second. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer grabbed the Reds' third goal in injury time making it three in two games for the Nowegian. :wink:

"Ole's doing very well," enthused Sir Alex. "He's got five goals now and if he carries on like he is doing, and I'm confident will do, he could get us twenty goals this season." :roll:

He might not have got on the scoresheet but Wayne Rooney was at the centre of virtually all of United's attacking exploits. Sir Alex was delighted with the England striker's contribution and believes he is well and truly back to his best.

"That was Wayne's best performance of the season so far," declared the United manager. "There were signs before this game that he was coming back to his best and I think the two international games probably helped him with his fitness.

"He had a hand in almost everything we did in the second half, and throughout the ninety minutes I thought he was excellent.


The Reds now turn their attentions to the Champions League ahead of their Group F clash with FC Copenhagen at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

"Cristiano Ronaldo [ankle] should be ready while Darren Fletcher will also be available. We rested Darren for the Wigan game after his exertions for Scotland during the international break, but he'll be okay for Tuesday. :P

"Gary Neville [calf] could possibly be back but Gabby Heinze is definitely out. We're hoping to have him ready for next Sunday's game against Liverpool."

Ronaldo is the best in Europe, says Larsson

Postby Miss Dangerous » Sat Jan 20, 2007 1:34 am

Henrik Larsson has hailed his Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo as Europe’s top player, ranking him above even former Barcelona colleague Ronaldhino

Image

Larsson has spent only two-and-a-half weeks training and playing with Ronaldo, 21, but said he has been amazed by what he has seen.

United yesterday had a £20million bid for Owen Hargreaves turned down by Bayern Munich. But Larsson believes Ronaldo is in such stunning form that even missing out on England midfielder Hargreaves will not stop United winning the Premiership.

Larsson said: "Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the Premier League and in the whole of Europe. The things I have seen him do since I have been in Manchester have been incredible, amazing. It is just like a total show in training and even in the matches.

"This kid will one day arrive at the very top in the world of football — if he isn’t there already — because of the fact that he makes the most difficult plays look easy. I know both him and Ronaldhino and have now played with both of them. And Ronaldo is top in Europe at the moment.

"But Cristiano and Ronaldinho in the same team would be like a bomb. It would be an incredible spectacle for the people. What’s more, I am totally convinced the two are able to play in the same side."


Larsson’s dream team could have been a reality had United manager Sir Alex Ferguson succeeded in bringing Brazil star Ronaldhino to Old Trafford from Paris Saint-Germain three-and-half years ago.

But the 35-year-old Swede believes United are good enough to win this year’s title anyway
. He has already set his sights on demoralising Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow, just as he did in helping Barcelona beat them in last season’s Champions League Final.

Larsson said: "United are the best team in England and at the moment they are superior to Chelsea, who have suffered a descent in comparison to the last year.

"For me each match with Manchester United is a challenge and a dream. I have scored in the FA Cup and now my desire is to savour a goal in the league, too. That is my immediate objective. A goal in Arsenal’s stadium would be magnificent for me.

"I am very excited about this experience with Manchester United. I had heard all the stories about this club but now I am living on the inside and it is spectacular. It is probably the best club in the world."


Arsenal beat United 1-0 at Old Trafford in September and last night their Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas challenged his team-mates to stop Ronaldo and give themselves the best chance of completing a double.

Fabregas said: "With the arrival of Larsson, United are most dangerous in attack. A line-up with Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Larsson will always create chances. But the main drive in Manchester United is Cristiano Ronaldo. If he is stopped then that team is reduced by 50 per cent.

"Matches against Manchester United always are very special and we need to win this one to try to jump to third place. They arrive as the leaders but we are now in an excellent mood and we can win."


Games between Arsenal and United have been blighted by controversy in recent years, with Fabregas the man widely thought to have thrown the pizza that hit United boss Ferguson during the infamous ‘Battle of the Buffet’ in autumn 2004.

But Fabregas added: "A match between Arsenal and Manchester United always is a battle but first and foremost it is sport. The incidents of recent seasons are forgotten and I do not believe that United will arrive to provoke us in London."

United last night signalled their month by lodging a £20m bid with Bayern Munich.

Bayern immediately turned down the offer but hinted that Hargreaves
, 25, might be allowed to go in the summer. Director-general Karl- Heinz Rummenigge said: "We can’t let him go this month. He must stay for now but who knows at the end of the season?"

United are planning a final attempt to buy Hargreaves and remain confident that an offer in the region of £23m will bring him to Old Trafford. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said early yesterday that the club were ‘banging against a brick wall’ in their attempts to land Hargreaves.
Late in the day, the midfielder indicated his desire for a move, saying: "With Rio, Wayne Rooney and players like that, United have incredible potential. I think they have the nucleus of a great squad and can achieve great things. For a club like intent to land Hargreaves this Man United to make an offer is something I appreciate."

Hargreaves is just back in training with Bayern after recovering from a broken leg.

Ferguson must choose between Larsson and Louis Saha for tomorrow’s game but has no doubt that Rooney will soon end his scoring drought.

The England striker has not scored since early in the game against Manchester City on December 9. But Ferguson said: "He just needs a little break. There’s nothing wrong. I’m not concerned. It will come.

"What he needs to do is to get these odd goals. He’s had spells of a two, a three, a two and he needs to get into that one-goal-a-game thing that strikers can do for you.

"If he does that, it will make a big, big difference to our run-in. He will be fine against Arsenal. He’s a big game player, isn’t he?" :P

Is that a picture of Ronaldo about to take a dive? LOL!!! I like Ronaldo but I can not stand how he likes to dive so much. He's probably the best when it comes to diving, though he seems to be cutting back on it just a bit, but I don't think he's the best in Europe. He's on the list but he's not the best.

I guess Ronaldo is playing his best season so far! he used to be selfish in the past but he improved himself when it comes to the team work so clearly.. you have to watch the match against Arsenal and you`ll see.
well, who`s the best player in Europ? :P

wouldn't go as that far. but i may be biased, since he annoys the hell out of me.

"Fabregas said: "With the arrival of Larsson, United are most dangerous in attack. A line-up with Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Larsson will always create chances. But the main drive in Manchester United is Cristiano Ronaldo. If he is stopped then that team is reduced by 50 per cent."
i find it rather alarming to say the least.

Ronaldo is having a good year this year but that doesn't make him the best player in Europe. I like him but his diving annoys me. Granted, he has cut back on it but he still does it and he's quite good at it. Heck, he should be the diving coach for any team out there.

Well I look at diving as something normal. There´s nothing wrong if your good at it and you don´t get caught. But if you do, in my opinion you should´t get a yellow but a red card instead.

Diving is normal. However, some players take it to the extreme and Ronaldo is one of them. I just don't want to see a player diving all the time, especially when he really doesn't need to. I believe that during the WC a lot of people were complaining about the excessive diving.

Materazzi Head Butted Again

Postby tracylynn » Mon Jan 29, 2007 3:23 am

01-28-2007
Materazzi headbutted again as Inter extend winning run
Inter Milan maintained their 11-point lead at the top of Serie A and extended their record run of consecutive league wins to 14 matches with a 2-0 victory at 10-man Sampdoria.

But the game was marred by Inter's Italian international defender Marco Materazzi once again being the victim of a headbutt.

Materazzi was the man infamously butted by French superstar Zinedine Zidane in the World Cup final last year.

On Sunday, it was Sampdoria's Gennaro Delvecchio who was the guilty party and he was sent off in the seventh minute for the assault.

Angered by a late challenge on Inter keeper Julio Cesar, Materazzi exchanged angry words with Delvecchio before the Sampdoria midfielder's head hit him squarely on the chin.



LOL!!! This guy knows how to push those buttons. I bet there's a sign on him that says "Hit your head here."
