Tevez Deserves No Sympathy

Tevez Deserves No Sympathy

I do not, of course, blame Patrice Evra for offering consolation to one of his best friends, Carlos Tevez. This is what grown-ups do when a friend is having problems.

'It was a little bit difficult, because Carlitos is a good friend,' Evra told MUTV.

'I called him before the game and said: 'I don't care, when you arrive at Old Trafford we are not friends on the pitch.'

'But off the pitch, he is one of my best friends from my time playing at United. This is why I was with him at half-time. It was hard when the fans booed him. I understand that he played here and then he joined City, but he is still one of my best friends.'

It was probably hard, especially as Tevez was deluded enough to think that joining City and spending weeks with slagging off the greatest manager of the club for not giving him enough opportunities even though he played in 51 games would not alienate the United fans.

Therefore, he deserves no sympathy for booing. He chose the money and then invented lies about how he had not been given enough opportunities to prove himself. Evra may put an arm round his friend who, I must say, also behaved as a grown-up, but Tevez deserves every jeer that comes his way.

Invented lies? I don't think so. Evra felt for Carlitos because Evra knew THE TRUTH why Carlitos wanted to leave. If Carlitos were such a jerk who lied do you think Evra would still want to be his friend? If he were such a jerk do you think Giggs and others would still have hugged him in the tunnel? Think about it. It was those stupid Man Utd fans like you who think you know it all acting stupidly by booing him, simply because you believe in Fergie. But you forgot, Fergie is always the master of mind games. And you think he is telling the truth but not fooling even his own Man Utd fans? If Fergie wanted to keep him why ignored him in the first place? Why played him in almost all "small games" but not the bigger ones? Why Fergie still offered him the contract without even knowing whether it was 25m or 47m? Illogical isn't it? Fergie is more likely the liar than Tevez. The one who knows how to "manipulate" perfectly is the perfect liar. Tevez is more like a simple guy and you think a simple guy like him will lie? But if some people wanted to be stupid, what can I say? You are lucky Owen scored you the goals. If Tevez scored his goal which hit the bar, or his team at least got the draw, you wouldn't even have anything to say. By the way, looking at all you articles, it is not hard to believe you never like Tevez. If that is the case, why talk about him so much when you don't like him? Are you obsessed with him or something? Give him a break.

Wow it's clear Zae doesn't like Tevez and doesn't care for anyones comments towards him, with no offense to Zae of course as quiet frankly i wouldn't care either. You guys know what he thinks now, you know he wont change his opinion, so why waste your breath?

If Tevez left graciously this wouldn't be an issue!!! He gave his all for United and I appreciate that but there was no need for him to bad mouth Fergie.And windleaf Tevez hit the bar and didn't take his goal and that is exactly why we bought Owen.Tevez is a runner not a finisher!!!

Just wanted to throw this one back at you Tuscan, as you seem to be adamant that manure were awarded less stoppage time at OTT than anyone else in the league. I have included a cut and pasted copy of a comment you left on our board to remind me of your opinion on the matter. Who's making it up, you or OPTA? "Also, thanks to the comments from Graham "rent-a-quote" Poll about watching added time at OT a bit closer - sky sports news did just that. They found that last season no team in the ENTIRE league was awarded less injury time at home than Manchester United. But please, don't let a silly thing like facts get in the way of your conspiracy theories....tuscan3000" So you have a good read of the following article and tell me if your opinion on Manure's paltry ammount of stoppage time still stands eh?

You really are a bitter blue ****

Clearly my point does stand. Both sky and the guardian have shown that United get less stoppage time than any other team in the top 4. Sky extended this point by saying we get less than any team in the league. That remains true. With regards to the difference in stoppage time between when we are winning and when we are not - the guardian puts across what seems to be a convincing article - but makes no attempt to support their conclusions by provinding a similar break down of any other teams - until I see a similar breakdown for at least the other teams in the top 4 - I cant say how much of an advantage we really have. Additionally, with such a large sample of games where we are winning (48) being compared to a such a small sample of game where we are not (12) its easy to see that the average for the smaller sample could be more easily skewed by individual outliers. If you looked at a break down of chelseas games for example -you might find that the one time when they played 10 extra minutes would significantly skew their average. Also (you really won't like this point as its a rather arrogant generalisation) but you have to consider what type of tactics would cause united to not be in a winning position after 90 mins at OT. There are very few teams in the world who can come and play us off the park with possession football at OT - so you have to think that the majority of teams who aren't losing at OT after 90 mins have done so by defending for their lives- time wasting on set pieces, keeping the ball out of play (with corners, freekicks and throws) and generally kicking the hell out of our players (especially CR7) in order to stop us from playing - this would most likely lead to added time at the end of the game. When we win, we usually dominate possession with a good passing game - meaning the ball is in play so there is not much need to add time on. So again - if you can show me a break down for the 20 teams in the league which shows how much added time they got when they were winning at home compared to how much they got from non-winning situations - I'll happily accept your point. Until such a time I can only look at the averages for the whole league which gives a more balanced outlook (and also supports my point - which in all honesty is why I prefer it!).

Oh and on the case of Tevez deserving no sympathy quiet bluntly he doesn't. He chose to go to City, he chose to bad mouth Sir Alex, everything that happened to him was his own doing. I can't believe that Tevez was suprised by his reception at Old Trafford, surely he realised that we were going to back Fergie over him?

Also Garrido running his mouth afterwards blaming the fans for hostile atmosphere. I would like to shake the mans hand who pelted him with the coin. What the hell did he expect from a derby game flowers and chocolates.
23/09/2009 15:22:00
One United, I did'nt expect anything else from you. Kissing Zae's ass and now Tuscan3000's? Atleast Tuscan had something concrete to say.. And then there's this NotoriousReddevil, who's got peanuts instead of brains.
