Spurs No Chance With Ferdinand Move

Spurs made a discreet move for England captain Rio Ferdinand, but didn't get far with it.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson made it clear to Tottenham that Ferdinand is not for sale.

Meanwhile, in their match against West Ham United, Manchester United produced a clinical performance against the Hammers. Wayne Rooney scored his first goal for 5 months from a penalty kick to give United the lead. Nani’s brilliant run gave United a 2-0 lead in the 50th minute and a Berbatov volley made it 3-0 in the 69th minute.

Giggs on Form as Manchester United Beat Newcastle

What a great start of the new football season for Manchester United!

They beat Newcastle United 3-0 last night.

After a slow start to the match Berbatov, Fletcher and Giggs ensured the victory for Manchester United. Ryan Giggs came on as substitute, and stands out as being the only player to not only play, but to score in every Premiership season since it started up 19 years ago.

Wes Brown Quits England

Manchester United’s Wes Brown has retired from international duty. The 30 year-old was named in England’s squad to face Hungary at Wembley on Wednesday but the Football Association have confirmed that the defender visited England’s training camp to inform head coach Fabio Capello of his decision.

“After a lot of thought and with a heavy heart, I have decided the time is right for me to retire from international football. At the age of 30 I feel it is right for me to stand aside and let younger players come through, which allows me to concentrate on my club career. I regard it as an honour and a privilege to have represented my country at every level from Under-15s and wish them well in future tournaments.”

Chelsea Beaten by Manchester United in Curtain Raiser

What a  great start to the season with the Community Shield win for Manchester United over Chelsea.

3-1 was a pretty convincing scoreline, and no doubt the Reds were the better team.

Hopefully that will give them confidence for the rest of the season.

Manchester United Guests of Honour at New Aviva Stadium

Manchester United take on players from Irish teams tonight as guests of honour at the refurbished ground.

The Aviva Stadium has 50,000 seats, green of course, and it's fitting that United are the first team to play there.

As the FAI mark the Aviva Stadium opening with all the pomp and elaborate ceremony the vastly over-priced tickets would suggest, Manchester United are, despite their forbidding fee, entirely suited to the role of honoured guests. Manchester United has always had a strong Irish contingent within the club.
