    When Johnny comes marching down the wing, O'Shea O'shea

    The MEN (Manchester Evening News) report that John O’Shea is to be offered a new deal in the summer. The young defender has started 39 games this season and United will apparently reward this progress with a new contract. O’Shea is currently earning £10’000 a week, the new deal will offer him around £35’000.

    there are so many times he has bailed us out,,, if we had lost that game against liverpool when barthez made that spectacular save aginst haman who knows where we would have been in the table. that was such a crucial game too. if you think he is such garbage,, try filling his shoes. lets see how many goals you let past your goal.

    i think the main thing with barthez...well..at least MY main thing with barthez, is pretty much based on what you said.

    He can be absolutley brilliant at times, but he can also be a complete train wreck. We cant have a goalkeeper sitting behind the rest of our players that doesnt have the the slightest tinge on consistancy. why? because it spreads to everyone else on the pitch.

    i guarantee we would have won the title one week earlier had berthez not been in goal, and someone consistantly solid was.


    but, hey....that just my opinon.

    not a very good opinion. "would have won it a week earlier without him"????? how do you figure?

    Other than 1 loss in the champions league, Barthez and The United defence have been great for many months - their Premiership form has been brilliant.

    but, 3 goals in 1 game (the Real return leg - 2 goals that possibly couldnt be stopped by anyone) and you want him out.

    Every goaltender has bad games. Barthez is no exception. But Barthez hs FAR from a bad netminder.

    I would guess that your "opinion" also includes Rio being a bad deal, Brown not being flashy enough and Sylvestre being past his best....

    But remember, WITH Barthez, United had the BEST defensive record overall in the EPL this season. WITH Barthez in the lineup, they have grabbed 42 of 48 points in the run to the title.

    If you were refering to the beginning of the season, when the defense struggled then I ask you to remember that United also had 6 of 11 regulars out recovering from surgery! Keane, Beckham, Butt, Neville, Veron, Scholes ...

    I for one, hope that Barthez stays with United. But I would not be adverse to having Robinson join United to share the duties.

    I couldn't agree more readily. For those of us who have been here a while, Schmeichel gave up the more than occaisional howler too (his kicking game was horrible at times), but at the end of the season, more often than not, we sat atop the league. The Great Dane was also a "nut job", and so is Barthez, but they have the right mentality to play for a biggest club in the world. Robinson isn't going anywhere with Leeds staying up. I wouldn't mind seeing a Yank with United. Take your pick!

    Schmeicle is the man. Did it for years at United, and still turning in stellar performances at City - It's a real shame he has chosen to retire. He's still quality.

    You may be right about Robinson, but Leeds will have to unload 2 possibly 3 top players. And if I were Mr. (insert future managers name here) , I would rather keep Vidouka, Kewel and Smith as I'm sure there will be a number of keepers on the transfer market this year to replace a Robinson sale.


    I couldnt possibly see Kellar in a United uniform - I just dont rate him enough to play in the chanpions league. Friedel would have made sense a few years ago, but I really cant see it now - I also cant believe Souness would survive fan backlash from selling him.

    And the winner is..................................

    Cant see Friedel coming to United. Most likley is Rustu or Robinson. Strong rumour here link Robinson to United. Saints keeper also linked.

    So who is the winner??

    We will find out in the summer.

    Fun this speculation lark isnt it?

    I was watching the Spain-Ecuador friendly on FSW, and Bretos said according to FSW's source's, Beckham is definitley heading to Madrid for 45 million pounds. This is just what I heard.

    he did say that he would be staying, besides 45 mill would be too much for him. maybe about 30 if you really want to push it, but not more than that.

    'Wes Brown will have to wait for more than a month to have major knee surgery, meaning that his comeback is now on hold until next year. Brown's knee is still swollen from the ruptured cruciate ligament injury he picked up in the last game of the Premiership season against Everton, and the England defender has been sent on holiday for a few weeks by United before the surgery, which is booked in for the middle of July. His recovery could take up to five months.'

    Ronaldinho to wear the red

    well, report have it that Kenyan finally signed the buck toothed brazillian. He's ugly as sin but a quality player.

    People may view this as a sign of Beckham impending move - but the players actually play on different sides (rh & lh).

    I still think Becks could be going, but I dont see the Ronaldhino signing being the harbringer.

    I wonder if the United Super Store will be selling a set of fake teeth with each Ronaldinho shirt they sell?

    Re: Ronaldinho to wear the red

    They already have 2.3 million in stock, as they had anticipated Luke Chadwick to be a star.
