Man Utd boss Ferguson: Marriage changed Beckham










Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says getting married to Posh Spice changed David Beckham.
Ferguson, who was speaking to an audience at the
Citizens Theatre in Glasgow, said: "He was never a problem until he got
married. He used to go into work with the academy coaches at night
time, he was a fantastic young lad.
"Getting married into that entertainment scene was a difficult thing - from that moment his life was never going to be the same.
"He is such a big celebrity, football is only a small part. The big part is his persona."

While Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admitted he was “shocked and flabbergasted” by the poor quality of his team's performance in the 2-0 home defeat by Coventry City in last night's Carling Cup tie, Gerard Pique confessed to feeling "horible" about the night's events.
A young United team never got out of the blocks against Iain Dowie’s fired-up Sky Blues, and that is what disappointed Ferguson most as they paid for some abject defending.
The veteran Scot had taken th opportunity to give several emerging young talents the chance to shine on the first-team stage in front of a 75,000 crowd. But it back-fired as Coventry deservedly won 2-0, with Michael Mifsud scoring both in front of 11,000 ecstatic visiting fans.
Pique revealed that all the United players involved were bitterly disappointed by the performance and the result.
"Looking up at the scoreboard at the final whistle and seeing 2-0 was a horrible feeling, especially when you're up against a Championship side at Old Trafford," he told MUTV.
"I thought we started the game well and had some good possession. But their first goal brought them alive. After the break we didn't feel good and when they scored the second it was a horrible feeling.
"We know we did a lot of things wrong, but you can always learn from these situations and hopefully we will grow as players."
Ferguson had seen the third round tie as the perfect opportunity for United's youngsters to showcase their talents, but Pique admitted:
"Some people will think we've missed our chance.
"We're all very disappointed. We gave everything we could on the pitch, but things just didn't go our way.

Fergie in the beginning of season
04-05: "You can't buy the title". He was talking out of his ass then,
because he knew he was spending more than anyone else besides Chelski.
Today, there's nothing between these two sides in terms of the value of
players.
Fergie in the beginning of season 07-08: "There are too many foreigners in the EPL", seemingly aiming at Wenger's and Benitez' youth transfer policy. Again talking a load of crap, only 2 of his last 10 transfers have been English (Tatcher and Carrick, the 18m benchwarmer. I'm not going to count the Canadian as English). And this is also coming from a man
whose club hasn't produced a single English talent for 12 years and not
likely it will for the next 5 years at least.
And the media swallows this ******** and prints it without any criticism.

Instead the propaganda against rotation and zonal marking continues to
pollute our eyes and ears. Yet our goalie has won the golden gloves 2
years in a row for the most clean sheets and the team now is 3 points
behind the mancs with a game in hand and with the same goal difference
but fewer goals conceded.
The discussion is too biased for me to buy into it. Nobody's this stupid.The media must be heavily influenced by those in charge of manure.

Other than that Angolan guy, haven't heard of anything . What we need is a third striker, especially with Saha (again) out indefinitely. If that Manucho guy does the job we're fine. I am surprised by SAF's inaction in finding backup at striker, but everytime I've second-guessed the old goat, he proved me wrong.....

Rooney Hails Bentley As The New Beckham



David Bentley wore the number seven shirt from the start as England
defeated Switzerland 2-1 at Wembley on Wednesday, and his team-mate,
Wayne Rooney, said: "I think David Bentley did really well; he is like
a young David Beckham; the vision and the confidence he has are
brilliant."

Rooney added: "You've seen the way Becks has played; over the years he
has been fantastic for England but, if you see Bentley, he is always
looking for options, always looking for someone to cross to. He created
a couple of chances for me and, as a forward, that's all you can ask
for."

England looked nervous and disjointed until Jermaine Jenas scored to
settle things down and boost the team's confidence. Bentley could have
been a bundle of nerves on the big stage given that his infamous
refusal to join the England Under-21 squad last summer had threatened
to jeopardise his senior international career and turned sections of
the England fans vociferously against him.

But, unfazed by the threat of boos and determined to prove his worth to
new coach Fabio Capello, Bentley made the most of his latest
opportunity.

"You have to keep knocking on the door and that's what I have tried to do," he said afterwards.

"Managing England is like club management, you have your team and you
put your trust in certain players. Steve McClaren had trust in the
players he was putting out but it's a new start for me now."

When Bentley first appeared in the Arsenal first-team as a 17-year-old,
he was called 'the new Dennis Bergkamp'. Now he is being compared
to Beckham.

But he is self-confident enough to handle it.

"David Beckham? I admire the man," he said. "I grew up watching him and
he's a legend in English football. But I am myself and I'm at the start
of my England career. I'll just have to work as hard as he did to get
to the level he did - and, hopefully, further. Only time will tell if I
do. If I stay honest and true to myself, then I'll get there."

Jenas, who also cause to be satisfied with his role in Capello's first England match, is a less self-assured character.

In his post-match analysis for the BBC, former Newcastle team-mate Alan
Shearer described Jenas as a midfielder who "often needed an arm round
the shoulder."

When this was put to Jenas later, he replied: "I know Alan well; I know he thinks that.

"It is a difficult one, but at the moment I tell myself I am playing
good football under the new gaffer [Spurs manager Juande Ramos]. I now
feel confident as soon as I step on to the pitch.

"I have always been on the fringes of the England side and it's hard to
make an impression when you come off the bench and have 10 minutes here
and 10 minutes there. You have to get a start and put in a performance
and that's what I think I did against Switzerland."

He had not expected to start for Capello - or to score the first goal of the Italian's reign.

"I was apprehensive about it," he said. "I wanted to be involved from
the start and I did what I could in training to get a start and it paid
off. It felt great standing out there singing the national anthem
because I knew that if I kept working hard at Spurs and improved my
game, the rewards would come."

Walter Townsend looks at Manucho's prospects at Manchester United...

After his surprise transfer to Manchester United this winter, could
Angolan born forward Mancuho be the answer to the striking problems
that some have perceived at Old Trafford this season?

The
former Petro Atletico and Benfica de Luanda forward has certainly
impressed in this edition of the African Cup of Nations, despite his
country’s early exit on Monday afternoon at the hands of Egypt. His
four goals helped Angola qualify for the knock-out stages, and even
during elimination he proved crucial for his side. Against Egypt, he
scored a goal that could lay claim to being one of the finest of the
tournament after letting flying with a shot from long range.

The
23 year old won’t be making his Old Trafford debut just yet as he
doesn’t meet the criteria to be eligible for a work permit in the UK.
As a result, he has the prospect of a 3 month loan spell to look
forward to with Greek giants Panathinaikos.

The Old Trafford
management team remain confident that Mancuho will be considered for a
work permit in the summer as a result of his exploits in the African
Cup of Nations and on the basis of the future performances in Athens.
(Although, Liverpool had to be beg to get Chilean ace Mark Gonzalez a
work permit despite his excellent performances for Real Socieded prior
to his arriving at Anfield).

With United linked heavily with
several star strikers in the recent transfer window, including Lyon’s
Karim Benzema and Klaas Jan Huntelaar of Ajax, both of whom remained
with their clubs for the time being, the management are still clearly
assessing their options in this department.

United currently
sit in second in the Premiership and - mainly thanks to the exploits of
Ronaldo, who has 19 from a wide position - haven’t lacked for attacking
thrust. However, Carlos Tevez with 11 is the only other player to have
reached double figures at this stage of the season. Rooney has managed
6 in the league and the next highest are Ferdinand, Nani and Giggs, all
with 2.

Whilst many, especially at the beginning of the season
when United began in most insipid fashion, questioned the logic of
pairing Tevez and Rooney together, the duo seemed to have hit it off.
They also unquestionably benefit from the increased space given to them
as defences increasingly turn their attention to stopping Ronaldo.

However,
it is undeniable that Tevez and Rooney are very similar types. Both
like to drop deep to receive a pass but, thanks to their combined
football intelligence, ensure that neither repeats the runs, but does
something different. And in this respect Ferguson could benefit from
having an out-and-out striker.

In steps Manucho, who should
be available from next August. "Why spend upwards of £12 million on a
top striker when you already have one" must be roughly the thinking
with the purchase of Manucho. The 4 games that Mancuho played in for
Angola have certainly given us an idea of the 23 year old’s capacities.


He appears to be quick, agile and also excellent in the air.
Like many African forwards he loves to receive the ball to feet and his
dazzling footwork has left a trail of bewildered defenders in Ghana.
He scored a goal with his head in the 1-1 draw with South Africa,
showing plenty of bravery, and, despite the effort being in a futile
cause, rattled in a superb long range strike against Egypt.

Given
his height (he is registered at 6”2) and willingness to take the ball
both with his back to goal and facing the target, inevitable
comparisons could be drawn with Nigerian forward Kanu, who has
successfully plied his trade in the Premiership with Arsenal, West
Bromwich Albion and Portsmouth.

So is Manucho the striker
who could save the United management a packet? He is undoubtedly an
excellent forward and, despite his record coming in the relatively
modest surroundings of the Angolan league, notched 34 goals in 78
appearances for his former club, although was unable to get them into
the African Champions League group stages last season.

He is
somewhat taller than both Tevez and Rooney, so offers a more natural
threat in the air than the more established partnership. However, his
lithe frame, may mean that to survive in the rough and tumble of the
Premiership he may need to increase his bulk.

He is also a
player who likes to drift out of the centre of play, and started his
career at Petro Atletico as a left winger. Also, during his side’s
match against Egypt yesterday drifted off the front of play into a
congested midfield area as his side chased the game. This tactic only
played into the hands of the Egyptians, who felt the further they could
keep him from goal the easier it was to mark him.

If United
are in the market for a genuine forward, they would be better advised
to look for a striker who only plays on the shoulder of the last
defender as United already possess sufficient talent in midfield, plus
forwards who drift deep to look for the ball.

Furthermore
despite Mancuho’s creditable four goal haul in the African Cup of
Nations - potentially the highest level of football he has ever played
it - he didn’t strike one as a genuine goal scorer. His squandered
chance just seconds into the second half against Egypt when he chipped
past the post was one that a more natural goal scorer could have put
away. With the game delicately poised at the point, his second goal
would have brought his side level, but the wasted chance leads one to
contemplate whether he possess sufficient big game nerve.

At
23 Manucho is no youngster, so will have to progress in the fashion
that Arsenal forward Adebayor has for Arsene Wenger if he is to make it
at Old Trafford. Furthermore, his slender figure would only benefit
from a year with a Championship side in the way that United’s rivals
City have posted young Ishmael Miller with West Bromwich Albion. A
season in arguably Europe’s most physically demanding leagues would
undoubtedly toughen up Manucho and prepare him more for the rigours of
a full Premiership season.

However, United have already lost
the remainder of this season after being obliged to stable him in
Greece under the guidance of Portuguese coach Jose Peseiro, and would
be understandably reluctant to loose another season out of their new
acquisition.

With these factors in mind, it seems unlikely that
Manucho is the answer to United’s demands if indeed they are looking
for a new striker in the summer to enhance their options in the
attack.

Nevertheless, given the right service and some
opportunities there is no reason why Manucho can’t forge himself an
excellent career in the Premiership although he will have to muscle
past both Tevez and Rooney if he is to gain a first team place on a
long-term basis.
