Could He Choose City?

And there we were believing that, following the signing of Jack Butland, Asmir Begovic would be coming to Old Trafford.

Well that`s not, apparently, so with Begovic remarking that whilst he suspects he will be leaving Stoke, his destination isn`t confirmed with the inference that he could be set to choose between ourselves and Manchester City.

Now, in our opinion, we can`t see that happen, with Joe Hart in the driving seat, as far as the keeper`s jersey is concerned at the Etched Stadium, would Begovic really want to play second fiddle?

"Etched Stadium" that's hilarious, you do know by using that you're drawing more attention to what the stadium is called and giving Etihad more exposure than if you just referred to it by it's proper title. Rags, you gotta love 'em.

Begovic in ...De Gea OUT!!
JohnnyOz
De Gea's going nowhere unless Barca or Madrid come calling. Give him a few seasons and he'll be one of the best keepers in the world. These Begovic rumours are getting tedious though and I can't.see it happening unless de Gea goes

I prefer the emptihad myself - more real. 2 things that spring to mind with the bitter who was typically the 1st to comment is, 1. He goes to the trouble of registering on a United site to vent a bit and, 2. How funny is it that of all clubs THEY call us rags!! Tell me some truth Bertie- if you hadn't been pimped by some faceless Arabs, where would you be?? Go inflate a banana pal. As for the actual article I would say he would be a grat signing but only if it is at the expense of Lidegaard as I am certain De Gea will be world class in a year or two. f heplayed for ANY other club there wuldn;t even be a subject..

Hi Wythy. Couple of things to correct you on. Firstly, this is the Vital network which encompasses the whole of the Premier League and Football League therefore when I signed up to City's site I could post under that registered username on any individual club site. Welcome btw. Secondly the Etihad is sold out every week and we don't have any issues selling season tickets unlike your good selves. Now, tell me, do you know where the term Rag comes from?
Bluedub
Still can't see past this rumour being nothing more than tabloid bull like the lloris, akinfeev and Valdes rumours of the past. There's no doubting begovics ability and if he came in the defence would be a lot more secure, much less error prone and far more commanding of his box and his defenders. All the same in the long run de Gea will be world class and will be a better keeper than Begovic my only concern is whether it will be in this league or even at this club. If he does make it in the league I doubt we'll get to enjoy his ability for long before Madrid or Barca come sniffing, if he doesn't make it in this league he'll still be world class by less physical leagues standards. De Gea certainly has the height, it's just his actual physique, he'll never be able to command the box and be aerially dominant unless he bulks up. At 22 his actual natural physical development isn't going to happen so its up to him to put weight on and then get down the gym to turn it into muscle. Can see Real Madrid and Barca coming around sniffing sooner rather than later considering the predicament of both clubs goalkeepers. The media do need to stop with this myth though that we need a new keeper, even at his age there's very few better keepers out there, even their darling Joe Hart wasn't even starting and playing regular premier league football at the age of 22, if he was English he'd get the potential world beater plaudits he deserves.
TheFamousNo7
If we had a stadium the size of the etihad and ticket prices the same as city charge we'd very easily sell out every week no problem. Question is could city sell out at old Trafford at our ticket prices? Doubt it, yet we near enough manage it every season.
TheFamousNo7
I was just correcting the chap Famous because he's obviously misinformed.
Bluedub
Sorry still in defensive mode after being bombarded with vitriol on vitalchelsea for daring to offer an alternative opinion that they get more than their fair share of penalties over a season than they believed :P
TheFamousNo7
Penalties? I mean refereeing decisions in general.
TheFamousNo7
Bluedub - as soon as i'd posted I realised that was probably the case. Most sites that are either United one's or general one's, case in point manchester Evening News have articles about United & the first postings are Berties so you'llforgive my error. As for why we e called Rags, my dad who was born in 1920 told me many years ago it was something that goes back a ery long way when we were struggling & City were a good side. Not sure of the prcise detail. As for your comments on the Emptihad being sold out every week - who are you trying to kid mate??? There were even empty seats against Liverpool & Arsenal for Gods sake. Dont even attempt to go down the support road with me mate as you will lose. Out of interest where are you from & what age are you as I can assure you i'm not misinformed..
