From the Back Pages: 9/7/2010

First things first, I apologize for not posting yesterday. Life happens, ya know? Ton of links today:


TEAM ENGLAND:

TEAM SCOTLAND:

RYAN GIGGS: 

  • The Sun: Ryan Giggs lined up for Wales manager's job
  • The National: Clamour for Giggs to take over as Wales manager No, I don't have any clue how a newspaper from Abu Dhabi made it into my RSS feed.
  • The Daily Mail: Wales set to ask Manchester United star Ryan Giggs to join as a coach
  • The Mirror: John Toshack to quit Wales and says: Give manager's job to Ryan Giggs of Manchester United


International Duty

 

.....OR MAYBE NOT

  • Fox Soccer: Hartson keen on Wales job
  • The Telegraph: Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs unlikely to take on Wales manager's job

I really hope if Giggs doesn't get/take the Welsh job, that he'll be given an offer in the future.  I think he would do a wonderful job there, making the talent the Welsh have work. 

    SQUAD NEWS:

    We start out here with a couple of links about former Bayern Munich manager (during the 98-99 season, as well) almost taking the United job after Sir Alex's planned retirement in 2004.  Then, to explain, the Bebe links are because it was initially reported that he had been left out of the Champion's League roster, but that was in error.  Also, voters at the team's website diasagree with our poll and give the Player of the Month award to Paul Scholes.

  • ESPN: Ottmar Hitzfeld rejected Manchester United over language fears
  • The Telegraph: Switzerland coach Ottmar Hitzfeld rejected chance to manage Manchester United
  • The Guardian: Bebe named in Manchester United's Champions League squad after all
  • Canadian Press: Bebe on board for Man United as Ferguson includes new signing in squad
  • ESPN: Bebe included in Fergie's Champions League squad
  • Manchester Evening News: Fresh hope for Hargreaves
  • The FA: Smalling: "Our spirit showed"
  • Manutd.com: Scholes is August's star

TRANSFER/LOAN NEWS:

What, you think there's no Rooney links in here?  There's way too many after the jump:

OTHER PREMIER LEAGUE NEWS:

NOBODY WANTS TO PLAY IN FRONT OF SCOUSE SCUM:

WORLD CUP 2018:

  • The Telegraph: England in with 'great chance' of hosting 2018 World Cup, says Sir Alex Ferguson

ROONEY WATCH 2010:

image pending...meaning I'll get to it when I get to it

 

On a serious note, as with any of the links from the tabloids: don't believe everything your read.  I link alot of stuff from the tabloids because they are usually pretty quick on transfer news and they have decent overall football coverage.  But we're no longer dealing with "back page" material...we're dealing with what the tabloids love to do...gossip.  In the interest of full disclosure, I think Rooney's an idiot and whatever she gets from him, good for her.  Beyond that, I really don't care. I hope Sir Alex can find the "head removing from ass machine" that he's used on other stars of the past, notably David Beckham.  Unlike Beckham's ultimate fate, I hope Rooney can stay at Manchester United, because he's a damn good striker who has a lot of other qualities besides his off the pitch love for fast cars and fast women.  He'll grow out of that.  Probably with some help from Sir Alex's machine.
