i hope its liverpool to be honest they deserve it and now we have keane.
Why do you deserve it, because you've been crap for the better part of 18 years? Sorry, but that is poor logic, they haven't even come close to a title in forever. To be fair, assuming you throw out conspiracy theories like refs favoring Man U and such, the only clubs that deserve a title are the ones that win it at the end of the day, no questions asked.

Exactly no one deserves the title in less you win it.
I don't see why not arsenal even though there is a lot of youth, Wenger always does great with bringing them up. Liverpool will end up doing something stupid and not win it. I really don't see why ManU won't win it again though

Actually TBH I thought that arsenal deserved the title for this last season, their play was exemplary, and I like them more than Man U. But that's beside the point.

The point is that Liverpool will win next year. And if not them then Tottenham.

nah as much i dont like them i think man u deserved the title last season, arsenal played some lovely, attractive stuff, but they didnt penetrate defences like man u did, they werent ruthless enough in front of goal.

Those goals woulda came from somewhere else, they still have lots of resources. Plus many of his goals came in games where they won by 2 or more, which means they weren't really needed to win, so they coulda still won the league without him and if he gets hit by a train like I'm hoping then they'll probably still do well. With Rooney and Tevez up front i don't think getting goals will be a problem at all, keeping them out might be.

That's bulls**t, fergie has been in the same situation before and he'd just move on an continue to build his team if cr7 leaves. That's one of the dumbest rumors I've heard to be honest.

Hah! This has got to be the funniest thing I've read in ages. They have no chance with Tom Hundredstone as their holding mid, and their defense will play a maximum of 5 games together before either Woodgate or King (or both) get crocked. Not to mention Gomes, although extremely talented, has a habit of letting in howlers.

Warning to all people at a neutral standpoint, extreme bias. :o

overall in the prem last season ronaldo scored 39% of all man utd goals so without his goals u'd be fu**ed pretty much. Not even the combined goals of rooney and tevez measured up to his.

The reason Ronaldo got so many goals (and Rooney and Tevez didn't so much) is because of everyone around him. They've been busy setting up goals for him, but if he leaves they certainly have the talent (if not more) to pick up the slack. Along with whoever they buy if they sell Ronaldo.[/b]

the worst thing that could happen to manchester united would be if they sold c.ronaldo with only a couple days left in the transfer window. i don't think they'd be able to find anyone to buy in a couple days. it'd be better to just sell now. they still have time at least.
