Sunny in Qater

Sunny in Qater

Following the draw against Tottenham Hostpur, United jetted off to Qatar for some warm weather training.

With the country in the grip of an icy blast that has seen huge areas of the country blanketed in snow, United will be enjoying four days of sunshine in the Middle East.

Speaking about the sunshine break and the chance to get some sun on their backs and refresh some jaded muscles, Michael Carrick has remarked,

"I think it will be an important break for us. It`s a busy season and there are busy times ahead."

Indeed there are and as long as jet-lag and tiredness don`t affect our next performance, against Fulham, then this trip should prove to be rewarding.

Apologies red boy never saw the article :P even with jet lag if we've been training and others haven't our match fitness levels should still be better.

Wish works would pay for my next training to be in Qatar it'd up moral no end ;-). Should do us some good though as they say a change is as good as a rest.

Football is the strangest business going in that sense MotorMad, no doubt if you even made that request you'll politely be told where to stick as would all of us.

Off topic but can't say I'm to pleased with Neville's comments about de gea in the media. The poor sod gets blamed for absolutely everything, even when he's not at fault. We've been poor defensively this season but De Gea has been one of few shining lights, despite us shipping god knows how many he has actually only been at fault for 2. At Manchester United its perhaps 2 too many but ultimately this is the risk you're getting yourself into when signing anything other than a world class finished article. You've got to expect and take mistakes on the chin when you sign a keeper from a foreign league at such a young age. First issue with Neville's comments is him saying you can't play well for 92 minutes of a game but let it slip in the last minute. Have I missed something because from what I saw de gea never switched off, everyone else did but he didn't. Rafael never chased the ball he won, Valencia never chased it either or close down the cross. vidic was 2nd to the ball and barged over by de gea because he stopped communicating. evra never closed down Lennon, his man who he should've been marking and then no-one even put any pressure on Dempsey at all let alone mark him. Second issue with Neville's comments is the whole if you make mistake you get singled out for it, you play as a team, you attack as a team and defend as a team very very rarely in a game is something ever just one mans fault. Frustrates me as people have been bitching about how lightweight he is and how he can't command his box and when he proves them wrong he apparently didn't do it well enough, would love to see how powerful these same peoples punches are when they've got to go through vidic to even punch the ball. The only concern regarding de gea is his parrying of late and how he keeps pushing back into play rather than out but no doubt like every other aspect of his game he'll sort it out. Normally enjoy nevilles analysis and think he's one of few superb football pundits but I really can't see where he's coming from. All right if a player makes a mistake it shouldn't be brushed under the carpet but singling out de gea isn't fair especially when he done nothing wrong. If he was English he wouldn't be the media scapegoat that he is and would be rated as the potential world class keeper that he actually is.
