Why Is Piers Morgan Allowed To Write?

Why Is Piers Morgan Allowed To Write?

Ferguson's empire is crumbling, he should go now and should be replaced by Jose Mourinho, the only man who can save Manchester United. This is the basis of the 'article' written by Piers Morgan for his Daily Mail column.

This is a tedious topic, of course, as we heard this every year in the past decade but still, his arrogance and obnoxiousness is so risible that I cannot let it go.

'This squad is simply not good enough to dominate any more. It`s the weakest I`ve seen at Old Trafford for 15 years' writes Piers Morgan, apparently forgetting that this squad was still good enough to beat his beloved Arsenal side home and away, that it still won a trophy and is still in with a shout of winning another. But since our squad is obviously weaker than in any time in the past three years, this isn't the most preposterous claim in the article.

'Just over a year ago, I wrote in this column that Sir Alex Ferguson`s reign as the Manchester United manager was coming to an end. His empire was crumbling, just as all great empires from the Romans onwards have eventually crumbled.'

I bet he predicts that every year and he'll feel so wise and clever when Fergie does retire eventually...

'To my surprise, United rallied after that and won the Premier League. But this was almost entirely down to the brilliance of one man, Cristiano Ronaldo. Aided and abetted by the almost as brilliant Carlos Tevez. And within weeks of the season ending, both of them were gone.'

So, basically, he's been exposed as a clown once already but he's risking it again by making stupid predictions. Brilliant. As for the title win being entirely down to the brilliance of one man... Cristiano Ronaldo scored 18 league goals last season, not bad at all but he was, for the biggest part of the campaign, a mere shadow of the player he was in 2007/08. He scored important goals: the brace against Villa and Spurs, the opener against City, to name a few but he's hardly been the most crucial factor during the run-in. It's United's defence that won us the league.

'Being aided by the almost as brilliant Carlos Tevez'. Oh dear. Piers: 5 league goals in 29 league games. Yeah, he won us the league, no doubt. A little check of basic facts would not go amiss, eh? He suggests that we should have payed £47m for a striker who scored 5 league goals. FIVE. Then he goes and ridicules Berbatov. You couldn't make it up. He calls Tevez's transfer fee 'dirt cheap' after the goals he scored for City. Who cares how many goals he scored for City, he was a total failure in his second season at United and that's all what matters.

So, why is Piers Morgan allowed to write about football? Indeed, why is he allowed to write about anything at all? He's an obnoxious, arrogant, preening primadonna - so he should stick to what he's good at, namely being arrogant and not doing anything worthy at all. That's what he's best at.

He is clearly a very intelligent man, with a deep and profound understanding of football. He must be very clever to see a reason why fergie should leave when he is doing so well at the moment, with the weakest manchester united squad in 15 years.

I HAVE A GREAT IDEA TO GET OUR TEAM OUT OF DEBT!!!! If Macheda player for...emmm... Milwall, he'd be scoring LOTS of GOALS! So we could ask 30-40m for him!!! And if Possebon played in ENP in Cyprus, he'd be like the new Ronaldinho in Cyprus, so we can definately get another 40-50m off him!! So why not sell all of our youngsters to really bad teams, and ask crazy sums of money, because after all, that's what they'd be worth at that level!!! Problem solved! United out of Debt! Who's this Piers Morgan guy? Dunno him...

It seems that this guy has missed the part where United have scored more goals in total, without Ronnie, and also the part that Rooney has filled in the gap with 34 goals
