I'd go with Ronaldinho, except Barca had a crappy season last year until they somehow charged into second place in La Liga. Amazing, that.

The odd thing is Shevchenko is in third place (behind Henry) but he's the European Footballer Of The Year (beating out Henry). It's a bit like some years ago when Zidane won the World but not the European.

They've got to fix that somehow.

hey! back after a brief mid-season break! Gutted Henry didn't win World player of year.. considering he scored more, created more and is amazing to watch, I can't understand why he didnt win it!

Amazing. We signed Daniel K something (American player with unspellable last name) from Arsenal on a month's loan. He scored against Everton in the Carling Cup and is apparently a left-back.

Exciting! He's on the bench against Wigan tonight. Can't wait...kick off's in ten minutes. I'll take the point though.

....and Everton just keep on going
They WILL slip up at some stage, Im sure of it!!
Oh well, as long as UTD can keep on their little run, i'll be happy. It's gonna be a little harder for the next few wks, with Ruud out, but Smith and Rooney are certainly capable.
Wayne really needs to sort out his bloody temper tho. There was no need for that shove in the face of Tal Ben Haim, even tho he went down VERY easily. If the ref had seen it, he would've gone, so he was very lucky.
Henry had another good game....jeez that guy is good! And just a 1-0 win for Chelsea, after their 4-0 smashes of the last few games - terrible

And my local team Torquay, hammered 5th placed Brentford 3-0, great hatrick from Consantine!
Im a little worried about the game UTD have against Villa 2moro nite, if we drop points, the title is most definately out of reach.

Jose Mourinho is moaning about playing two games in 3 days.
Haha! I love this guy - he's been a breath of fresh air in English Football Management! He deserves the title just for that!

Henry? Who needs Henry when you have Super Stu Elliott putting away the goals? Our top scorer leads the League 1 goalscoring charts by 3 or 4 goals - and he's a midfielder!

I daren't mention the 'P' word at this stage of the season but with Hull in 2nd at the mo, it looks like 2005 could be another exciting year for us

pity about Sun'lun winning but Wigan and Reading both lost, and Wet Sham needed a late comeback against...Rotherham!

Great day!

Edit: Some game at the City Ground.

Booked: Reid, Thompson (Forest); Lawrence, Whitehead, Wright, Whitley, McCartney, Arca, Brown (Sunderland).
Sent off: Robertson (Forest).

and Marcus bloody Stewart has a 90th minute winner.

You should read some of the programme notes he's written this season they've been fantastic, things no one else would ever say - calling for songs for every player and lots of other fantastic but accurate things. I don't think you can help but love the guy, my friend's a massive Arsenal fan and even he likes him.

WOOOOOOO-HOOOOOO Everton lose at last, and we (just about) beat Villa, so move up to 3rd, only a point behind Arsenal! The title race is still very much on. Hopefully Everton will be slightly rocked now, and will lose a couple more, and we'll maintain our run and keep the pressure on. I can see us finishing 2nd, but it's gonna be a huge task to catch Chelsea now. It's hard to see which games they could possibly drop points in.
They've still gotta come to Old Trafford, but that'll probably end up in a draw.

Tough game last night anyway, Villa were in control for the majority of the 2nd half, and were unlucky not to get a draw from the game. Smithy should've made it 2 at the death, but somehow tapped it over the bar...from 2 yards out....in front of an empty goal.....

Rooney is banned for the next 3 games. Which means he misses the crucial 3rd round F.A cup tie, the visit to Old Trafford of the legendary, Exeter. No Rooney, no Ruud no Saha and no Solskjaer.

....Just Giggs and Smith up-front then!
