yeah it's sad for sure.

i was able to see him play for inter back in 2001... came on and scored as a substitute against fiorentina. the atmosphere was unreal... the whole stadium was chanting "phenomeno, phenomeno, phenomeno!"

i hope this won't be the end for him, but how can it not to be?

maybe fergie is rueing his decision to let manucho go to greece for the season or maybe even selling rossi in the summer....
Yeah, I've been of that opinion all season, United haven't got cover up front, & although there's still a long way to go, I don't want to be accused of being wise after the event, so I'll say it now, I think it will cost United, trophywise at the end of the season. Agree with you 1Step, United look far more threatening when Rooney plays, but already in his career he's picked up 1or 2 lengthy injuries, & suspensions, & saha although a potent striker whne fit, credit where its due when he plays he does score, he's never bloody fit, Rossi, although I didn't see him often, looked sharp whenever I did, so, considering saha's inability to play more than 2 mathces in a row, couldn't understand Fergie's decision to let him go. I know he's at chelski now, but I thought Anelka could have done a good job for United, he's still got pace good in the air & on the ground, & could well be a major factor in chelsea's run-in, don't rule them out of anything, both arse & United have still got to go there, they've got kind draws in both Champs. Lge, & FA Cup, & in final of Carling Cup, possible quadruple!

Ronaldo's career could be over

oh and im talking about THE ronaldo by the way, not that diving cheat from old trafford so jimmmm and aardvark you can stop worrying

anyway, it will be a truly sad day for football if he does retire. he was a great great player on his day. arguably the best player in the world during his time at barcelona before he got injured.
Totally agree there, I was at OT the night he tore Uniteds defence to shreds, & although United actually went on to win the leg, the damage had already been done by a wonderful hat-trick from the great man, & he actually looked bemused when he was sustituted, & given a standing ovation from all corners of OT, such was his performance, 1 of THE all time greats, hope he makes it back, but things don't look promising.

yeah i remember watching that. one of the best games of football i've ever seen. the reception he got when he was subbed was superb. the fans there must have known they had been watching potentially one of the all time greats.

you were there jimmmm? does that mean you've seen my idol zidane play live in the flesh?? if that's true then you are one lucky bastard!!

I think we've still got a good chance. It's gonna be tough, but i'm hoping that if Rooney can feature in each game and Ronaldo continues his fantastic run, then we've got a good chance of pipping them to the post.

Yeah, I was there that night 1Step, didn't go to many Euro matches, but broke 1 of my own personal rules that night, never go to OT 'cos of the opposition, but with Ronaldo in town I had to make an exception, & despite the overall outcome I'm bloody glad I did, to be absolutely honest I didn't notice Zidane too much, mainly due to Ronaldo's performance.

The FA Chairman Lord Triesman seems like he's on the side of the majority of fans and will dismiss Scudamore's daft plans for an extra league game abroad, this week. He thinks that the idea could well have an impact on England's chances of staging the World Cup in 2018.

Good move

4-0! Superb result. The Arse were well off form and Rooney/Anderson & Nani were all on fire. The sending off in the 2nd half was deserved, so dunno what he was moaning about. Just get off the pitch u whiner!
Hope this will have an impact on their next few games now!

Oh...and Liverpool -

Haha. Wenger did his usual "i didn't see it" line when asked about the sending off!

Ha ha! What can you do but laugh? I'm just glad I sold my tickets and didn't go

Good luck to Barnsley in the next round

I just knew Liverpool playing Barnsley on Feb 16th (of all days!) would not be a good omen....

Inter Milan next up...easy
