'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Man Utd Fans Put In Their Place!?

Great article on Manchester United here, titled 'A Plea To Manchester United Fans'

I can understand that seeing Chelsea sign 5 players before the World Cup and seeing Tottenham and Liverpool sign a whole host of players this transfer season makes Manchester United fans worried about the club`s future, but is there really any cause for the constant bitching and moaning about Manchester United not signing anyone yet?
To begin with, I`m a Manchester United fan myself. My friends tell me this whole football blog gig is just a front for me to rant on and on about Man Utd, and you know what sometimes they`re right.

But for the life of me I cannot understand why everyone is so worried. This is a team that came second in the league and managed to cut down an 18 point lead to 6 points at the top of the table and had we beaten a couple of the teams we drew with, the end league table could have looked different. I`m not happy with our result, but considering our resources it is quite surprising that we ended up where we did at the end of May.

But forget 'what might have happened`. Think of what DID happen.

Manchester United was rotating John O`Shea, Giggs and Darren Fletcher in the midfield after Keano was sent away and Alan Smith got injured. Two players who would normally be sitting on the bench (and in Fletcher`s case not even on the bench) and a natural left-winger who is past his best.

And we still managed a fantastic run-in to the end of the last season.

Why am I reminding you of all this?


Well, if you want to find out, you'll have to visit the authors site! A Plea To Man Utd Fans

We do expect a great deal from Manchester United because Manchester United are amongst the top five clubs in the world and there lies the problem, for a top club, you can only buy top players and sometimes to get the top players, you have to wait.... simple as that.

Paul Scholes the other day called for our patience and although I would prefer loads of activity so there is more to write about on this site, I concur that it is only the right sort of activity that we want. When Sir Alex Ferguson is ready, he'll get the people he wants and we will be up there and challenging for honours.
