United - They're Queuing Up to Sign For Us!

United - They're Queuing Up to Sign For Us!

Possibly the hardest bug to bear with regard to the Rooney statement is the implication that United are not interested in signing 'marquee` players.

It`s something that has clearly rankled Sir Alex as his response last night, to the suggestion, leaves no table unturned with Sir Alex reiterating,

"This is a bagatelle, believe me. We will invest in signature players when the time is ready. The summer was not right for me. There was no value. There was one player we identified, yes, but he didn`t want to come to England."

"Manchester United is an attraction for players. If I told you how many agents call me or e-mail my secretary every week to say their players want to play for us - and not just run-of-the-mill players, I am talking about players at almost every club in the world - it would amaze you."


Any clues as to who was on the list Sir Alex?

But one paragraph really did intrigue us with Sir Alex almost going the way of the legend that is Eric Cantona, by commenting,

"Sometimes you look in a field and see a cow and think it`s a better cow than the one you have in your own field. It rarely works out that way. It`s probably the same cow as you have, or it`s not as good."

Excellent stuff and a stunning comparison don`t you think!

He's losing the plot big time I reckon. Anyone remember David Gill poring over Tevez's contract to see if there was a way to sign him on the cheap? Do you really think Michael Owen would have ended up at the swamp if you'd any money? Come on folks, the Glazers have shafted you. Don't know what they've got over fergie to keep him toeing the party line, but maybe it's the same thing fergie seems to have over the referees!

In contrast fcb would they let Fergie spend a combined fee of 20 mil on unproven talent if there wasn't the money to spend. Would they of let Fergie buy Berby for 30 mil just 2 years ago when we were in a stunning amount of debt and finally would they of let Fergie put in a 25 mil bid in for Benzema when Tevez left? He also enquired to Bayern Munich about Ribery when we were being linked with him also.
