well, he was offered a contract since 18months ago.
he refused to sign, so they offered Howard an extension.
so Carrols contract offer was withdrawn.

the cant keep two numbers 2's ;)

Casillas, Frey and Given have been added to the wanted list today.

I dont want Alex... Kameni im not sure.

Frey looks the most likely to me.

just dont take everything I post to seriously :)

Fergie in the Buff

ALEX FERGUSON is poised to launch a £35million bid for Gianluigi Buffon.

The Manchester United boss has made Juventus’ No 1 his top target after ditching calamity keeper Roy Carroll.

United’s new owner Malcolm Glazer has promised Fergie a £100m transfer kitty after their barren season.

Ferguson will only be allowed to spend £20m a season over the next

five years and hopes to persuade the Italian giants to accept a down payment then instalments for Buffon.

But Fergie could see striker Ruud van Nistelrooy head for the Old Trafford exit door.

The unhappy Dutch star, who cost £19m four years ago, has had a disastrous season due to injuries and poor form and has decided he needs a new challenge.

Real Madrid have been strongly linked with Van Nistelrooy in the past and could re-activate their interest.

It is possible a swap deal could be arranged which would involve Michael Owen moving to Old Trafford.

Van Nistelrooy, 28, was heavily criticised by United fans for his display in the FA Cup final defeat by Arsenal.

United lost on penalties but he missed at least three good chances and his body language strongly hinted his time was up.

Buffon, 27, is widely regarded as the best in the world in his business and when he joined Juve from Parma four years ago he cost £32.6m — still a world record fee for a keeper.

Whether Juve, who beat rivals AC Milan to land their 28th Serie A title, would be prepared to sell their prize asset is open to debate.

But they have been stung by their failure to win the Champions League after going out in the quarter-finals to winners Liverpool.

Newcastle’s Shay Given, Spurs’ England No 1 Paul Robinson, Bolton’s Jussi Jaaskelainen, Middlesbrough’s Mark Schwarzer and Antti Niemi of Southampton have all come under Fergie’s scrutiny.

Carroll, 27, was released by United yesterday — despite starting ahead of Tim Howard for the Cup final.

The Northern Ireland star has been wrangling over a new contract since the turn of the year and it seems United have finally run out of patience.

Ironically, after rejecting the club’s first offer, it was thought Carroll was close to signing an improved deal worth around £25,000-a-week.

And his agent even claimed this week the player had been given the assurances he was seeking about his future.

United seal Van der Sar deal

Fulham's Edwin van der Sar is all set to complete a move to Manchester United, skysports.com can confirm.

Speaking exclusively to skysports.com, van der Sar's agent Rob Jansen confirmed the transfer was almost done.

"The deal is done in principal," Jansen told skysports.com.

"It will be finalised in a week.

"Edwin is very happy, it is an honour for him to play for a club like United."

Van der Sar is set to sign a two-year deal at Old Trafford, once he has returned from international duty with Holland.

The 34-year-old won his 100th cap for the Oranje on Saturday as he helped his country to a 2-0 win over Romania.

Van der Sar will be in Finland on Wednesday before returning to England when he will complete the formalities of the deal.

Sir Alex Ferguson has moved quickly to land van der Sar, after Roy Carroll left the club last week.

The move represents the end of a long chase for Ferguson who first moved for van der Sar in 1999, but he was pipped to him by Juventus.

Ferguson has opted for van der Sar, ahead of the likes of Antti Niemi, Shay Given, Paul Robinson and Andreas Isaksson.

Tim Howard, who signed a new deal recently, will be number two to van der Sar next term - although Ferguson may yet add a third senior goalkeeper to his ranks over the summer.

What Fergie should do is get Diego Forlan back..didn't he score more goals this year in Spain than the entire ManU team did..yes, he did.
goalpdl said:
Hah! I got something right for a change, eh Bentex? I said all along that SAF was going to back to Plan A with Timmy. Prepare him to be the long term number one.
ok, but he is 26 already.
when do you see him being #1 ??

oh and these are funny :happy: :D :D: :D

pista bácsi,
please stop this now :)

do you really feel Howard was benched because of one mistake?
Howard had a dreadful time so far at Man Utd where he made several mistakes. Not only Fergie thought he was not up to the job but every (non american) Man Utd fan too.

also you forget Barthez was number 1 for 3 years with all the mistakes he made.

now on to Van Der Sar!

He is a very experienced keeper, played on the very highest level for several years. His only low point was at Juventus.... but in saying that if he was at a Fulham or say boro he would have been in good form :)

I like Van der sar, he is certainly a vast improvement on Howard and Carrol. The only question is how long he will last.
On Mutv in the call in shows everyone agrees that the 2 years of service he will give us is more than enough time for Fergie to go out and find a replacement.
Dont forget, Fergie told Peter Kenyon to go and get Cech and he took that info with him to Chelsea :( Robben aswell. :scream:

Listen, if Howard does not get his chance in two years, you can rip on me and say I was full of shite all along. But, I believe he will be the number one. He has made mistakes, but the Kid will bounce back and get on track. Look at Friedel. He was considered a failure at Liverpool, but a success at Blackburn. SAF must see something in Tim to have let Carroll go.
he didnt let Carrol go, he had a contract offer on the table for about 8 months. Howard was offered a new contract once Carrol failed to sign it.

Only after Howard signed Carrol said he wanted to stay and then the contract offer was withdrawn.
I will never say such things :)

I think its certainly possible that Fergie will go for Owen, I dont dismiss this story one bit.
United keeper furious with arrival of Van der Sar

Manchester United goalkeeper Tim Howard has thrown down the gauntlet to new teammate Edwin van der Sar.
The USA international is insisting: "I won't be No.2 to anybody."
The News of the World says Howard was hoping to be Sir Alex Ferguson's first-choice goalkeeper after Roy Carroll was shown the door. But Fergie's 3 million euro swoop for former Fulham stopper Van der Sar has left Howard fuming.
"I didn't sign a new contract here to be the No.2," he said. "Had they said 'You're not our guy for next season, but you're a decent back-up goalkeeper,' I never would have put pen to paper. I feel I have improved and think I deserve to be given a chance."
Howard in title boast

Tim Howard has warned Chelsea that Manchester United will be going all-out to reclaim the Premiership title next term.

The Premiership trophy spent its second successive season outside of Old Trafford for the first time since United won the crown back in the 1992-93 campaign.

Indeed, United were never really in a title race that Chelsea ultimately ran away with.

However, Howard - who faces a fight for the number one jersey with new arrival Edwin van der Sar next term - believes Sir Alex Ferguson has assembled a side more than capable of snatching the title back.

"We were 18 points off Chelsea and the table does not lie - but to a man in the dressing room we know we can win the title next year," Howard claimed bullishly.

"We have the firepower to do what Chelsea did last season.

"It's not a case of maybe we can do it - we know we can do it."

And as for Rio: Sign up or disappear
he just signed :)
football is not played on paper, its played on gyep :)

I have a couple of videos I need to upload for you, I think you will like them.
I blame Scholes, I've been campaigning for a while now to replace him with Sneijder.

BTW, Carroll is looking very good for West Ham.

and VDS has looked 10 times better than him, best keeper this season by a mile.
have you heard that some kids have been harassing Gaz Neville? :D
he is a recording some of the kids have put on the net :dielaugh:

*WARNING: contains strong language*

Is Neville a rude Devil?

SOCCER’S Gary Neville sparked a probe at a public school after pupils bombarded his mobile with prank calls.

The ace lodged a complaint after playground jokers claimed they taped the England and Man U defender blowing his top — and put the recording on the internet.
