United - Van der Sar`s Hindsight!

United - Van der Sar`s Hindsight!

As the curtain begins to fall on the playing career of Edwin van der Sar, it appears our Dutch goalkeeper has a regret.

Now before we all get excited and start celebrating an about turn, perhaps we should point out that the regret relates to the manner in which Edwin announced his retirement.

It seems that Edwin is getting fed up with people asking if he`ll change his mind and is commented as having remarked about the situation,

"I`ve just got sick and tired of the question."

"Maybe it would have been better not to have announced my retirement and after the last game, say OK, that`s it." That probably would have been better."


And as for a career ending to remember, Edwin had this to say,

"It would be nice to finish my career at Wembley winning the Champions League, yeah."

"It`s a better place to bow out than, say, against a lesser team in the league with nothing to play for. But first we have to overcome Schalke in the return leg and hopefully put on a performance for our fans."


Is there a better ending than a Champions League Final at Wembley? We doubt it!

We should be respectful of his decision and thank him for his years of service rather than keep on bugging him. Yes, he still has the ability to go on for another 2-3 years seemingly but this day was inevitably coming. I'm thankful that he announced his retirement early, it will prevent panic buys and ensure any signing is heavily scouted and well thought through. The timing, in fairness, couldn't be better. I hope we can win the Champions League but having seen how Barcelona played against Madrid (and i'm not being complementary) I don't feel we stand much of a chance, constant diving from the whole squad, haranging the ref for the littlest of things and always looking for a fight, they may see themselves as the pride of football, as Gods gift to us but they were the embarassment of football on the night . Mourinho was on the money when he said when playing Barcelona you're automatically down to 10 men and playing against 12 men. I'd love to beat 'em.
