First of all sorry about the lack of posts in the last few days. I was away at a wedding and a combination of food, alcohol and women caused me to forget all about United. I didn't even realize they had played over the weekend until yesterday. We lost? Berba scored? Well anyway, let's not dwell on the past because there is a lot to be excited about in United land. Vidic looks to be staying on, Nani was back on the weekend and now Chicharito looks set to debut as a United player. Plus United have a chance tomorrow to thrash an entire league's best players. The MLS All Stars take on the mighty Manchester United tomorrow at Reliant Stadium in Houston.
I would love to get some predictions on what you think will happen in tomorrow's game. Actually what I would really like to hear is what you would like to see happen compared to what you think will happen.
More news and notes after the jump.........Here is a pretty sweet video that a fan made to promote the up coming United season. It features the audio from a Nike Hockey commercial that aired here in Canada during the Winter Olympics. It's a sweet video.
Manchester United Season 2010 11 Promo by aditya reds (via adityareds)
Young United defender Rafael has received the call to play for his country. Rafael is one of 11 potential first timers in a new look Brazil squad named by new coach Mano Menezes. Just 4 players in the squad featured in the World Cup as the new coach looks for the next generation of Brazilian greats. Brazil plays the USA in New Jersey next month and Rafael looks set to make his debut for his country. What a thrill this must be for the youngster and it is well deserved.
Paul Scholes has admitted he may have made a mistake by not going to the World Cup. Scholesy says that once the World Cup build up got into full swing he thought maybe he should have gone and played for England. But he is also well known as a man who misses his family when on international duty and he had promised his wife's cousin he would go to Florida to coach in a soccer clinic. I don't think Scholes would have done much to help England's perfectly good goal to be given by the linesman so I am not sure how much he could have done to prevent England bowing out to the Germans.
And David Gill says United has money to spend. He always says that and yet still no striker to bolster the squad.
