Chicharito Did It Again.

After a goal behind Ferguson was desperate to sharpen his attacking force by introduce Chicharito in. 6 minutes later, Chicharito scored for Manchester United to record results a 1-1 draw at Anfield after United lost three previous meetings at Anfield. Sir Alex Ferguson was full of praise for our Mexican striker.
“Hernandez did it again,” said Ferguson. “When you see the goal he was strangled by Martin Skrtel but he managed to free himself. His goals-per-game ratio is fantastic. You always think he can score. That is the great thing about him.”

Ferguson's selection policies this time is more to strengthen the midfield when Rooney, Nani, Valencia, Anderson was on the bench. Phil Jones for the first time placed in the midfield position as the anchor to neutralize the movement of Gerrard and Adam. Everything went smoothly when united control the midfield and ball possesion and limited Liverpool threat.

Yesterday saw a lot of Mariner referees decision is against United, including the decision to give the free kick
to Liverpool after Adam was tackle by Ferdinand outside United penalty box. If we look back through the playback Adam fell so easy. "There was the slightest contact, but I do not think it was enough to make a Fella of 12 or 13stone fall on the floor, "Ferdinand said. Gerrard scored from the free kick,
he took full retribution by spotting that Ryan Giggs had abandoned United’s defensive wall by curling a shot into the space vacated by the Welshman to give David de Gea no hope.

Ferguson’s reaction was to immediately send on Wayne Rooney and Nani, before ­introducing Javier Hernandez six minutes later. Within six minutes, the little Mexican had stooped to head home after Danny Welbeck had nodded on Nani’s ­left wing corner and United’s unbeaten start to the defence of their title was extended to eight matches. After United goal, Liverpool attack to find the winning goal but was denied by United number 1 David De Gea. He makes fantastic save to denied Kuyt tapping at the near post. The Spaniards excelled again to claw away Jordan Henderson's volley as it dipped Towards the top corner.
De Gea proved he is growing into his new English challenge."De Gea is a fantastic goalkeeper," said Ferguson."He is so confident and composed for a 20-year-old."

Ferguson made ​​a surprise yesterday by put Rooney on the bench. Ferguson admits he benched Rooney due to UEFA ban. "Wayne was devastated at the suspension," said Ferguson."He could miss the European Championships because there is no guarantee England are going to qualify (from their group). That is the nuts and bolts of it."England have found it very difficult to progress in major championships and for Wayne to get three matches, he could miss the whole thing."

And the most surprising issue lat night is Evra was claim he was racially abused by Liverpool's Luis Suarez. In an interview with French tv station Canal Plus, Evra said: “There are cameras. You can see him (Suarez) say a certain word to me at least 10 times.“There is no place for that in 2011. He was trying to wind me up.”Evra and Suarez did wage a running battle throughout the second half. The Frenchman, ­captaining the champions in the absence of Nemanja Vidic, was incensed when Suarez caught him on the knee with a challenge close to a Kop corner flag.Television cameras then caught both players ­exchanging words when United were preparing to defend a 63rd-minute corner.And within two ­minutes, Evra was shown a yellow card for continuing to voice his opinion.The FA have confirmed they have launched an investigation into the Manchester United star’s allegations.

One point from Anfield this time should be celebrate if three clash at Anfield before and the atmosphere in there is taken into account. We lost 3 game at Anfield before, so 1 point is not bad. With a strong spirit they played well in the middle, control the game and limit Liverpool's movement and make a good response, not panic after Liverpool scored. Such spirit should be continued for the next game, especially derby match against City at Old Trafford. Lets City enjoy the moment at the top of League, we gonna take it back next week.

Tom Cleverly has agreed to sign a new 40,000 pound a week deal with Manchester United untill 2015. 

Cleverly is one of the best products was born from Man United Academy and was loaned to Wigan by Ferguson last season to gain experience playing in the first team and feel a more competitive league games which the opportunity was difficult in Old Trafford.

Ferguson was paid by the significant improvement shown by Cleverly since he was given the opportunity played as a substitute during the Community Shield game against City at Wembley and then continue to be entrusted by Ferguson played in the main squad until he was injured while playing against Bolton when he was tackle by Kevin Davies.

Tevez Strop Highlights Berba’s Class

By January of last season, Dimitar Berbatov had scored more hattricks for Manchester United than Wayne Rooney had goals, as we chased down that historic 19th title. Berbatov ended the season the league’s top scorer with 20 goals and United knocked the scousers off their perch.
After failing to fully justify his massive price tag in the first two seasons it was great to see our Bulgarian play such a vital role in such a massive season for the club. The hattrick against Liverpool, five goals against Blackburn, and the two goals against Blackpool after we had gone 2-0 down, were the highlights of his best season with the club.
“I will go nowhere,” he said on the day we won the league. “Now I am part of United’s 19th title and I want to be part of the 20th, that’s my plan. I am the happiest man in the team.”
There was no bitterness from him, no sense of trying to prove people wrong, or being smug about turning things around after being written off. His attitude was second to none, the kind of behaviour you would expect from one of our homegrown players, not a foreigner who had only been at the club for a few years.
“I have said before the people of Manchester United are the judges and that is the way it should be,” he said. “It is their team. I am a guest. A privileged guest. I am so lucky to play here. For these people. For this manager. For this club. With these players. I can’t describe it.”
However, after lifting our 19th title, his situation took a turn for the worst, when the manager bizarrely didn’t include him in the squad for the Champions League final. Michael Owen, who had scored just 5 goals that season, was preferred to our top scorer, who was left in the dressing room crying.
The obvious assumption was that he was going to leave the club. Clearly he wasn’t in the manager’s plans and there was no way the league’s top scorer could or should tolerate being left out of the squad for such a big game. However, true to form, Berba was a class act in his dealing with the situation, so determined was he to stay at United.
“Smaller clubs might be able to match Manchester United with the way they play, with their organisation, everything. But Manchester United are at the top,” he said. “Where can you go from there? Maybe Barcelona. At the moment, I don’t see anything else. If you go somewhere else it is a big step down. I have the good fortune to play for Manchester United. For the time I am here I try to do my best and win everything there is to win. There is no other way I can play.”
Then, after losing his starting place in the team towards the end of last season, he started this season fourth choice, behind Danny Welbeck as well as Chicharito and Rooney. He has played 100 minutes in the league out of a possible 540 and has had just 8 minutes in the Champions League, coming on against FC Basle last week when we were 3-2 down.
On the same night, Manchester City were getting a battering in Germany and Roberto Mancini wanted to change things up. Edin Dzeko had a strop about being replaced before Carlos Tevez, who has already had two transfer requests rejected in his two years at the club, refused to replace Samir Nasri. Tevez, who is reportedly earning £250k a week, was begged to come on for the last 20 minutes, only for him to remain seated on the bench. Mancini claimed if he had things his way he would never play the Argentinian again.
Whilst I don’t think we should be celebrating the fact that Berbatov isn’t behaving like the strikers at City, I think the comparison should serve to remind us how lucky we are to have players like Berba who think too much of the club to show disrespect towards it or the manager. If anyone was entitled to have a bit of a sulk it is him, going from the league’s top scorer one season to the club’s fourth choice the next, but we haven’t seen any petulance when being subbed off and nothing but positivity in the press.
According to the manager, it isn’t just a public front from Berba, with him grafting in training too.
“Dimitar has been training terrific,” the manager said last week. “His attitude is spot on. He will get his game time as the season wears on.”
Whilst Tevez couldn’t care less who he played for, or even if he played at all apparently, playing for United actually means something to Berba.
“My mind was always set on joining Manchester United,” he told Crerand this week. “How can you not go to United? I don’t play for money.”
Before joining United, despite City agreeing a fee with Spurs, which allowed Berbatov to come to Manchester, the Bulgarian didn’t even bother meeting with Mark Hughes’ team, despite knowing that it would certainly put pressure on United to pay him more. He has reflected on the conversation he had with his agent back then.
“He called me to say we have interest from Manchester United. I said: ‘Don’t joke with me’ but he said he was serious. So I was speechless. When the biggest club contact you, it’s a big deal.”
Tevez slagged off the city massively, claiming once he leaves he will never return, and bizarrely, that we only have two restaurants.
“I’m happy here,” said Berbatov, in contrast. “I hear people complain about the weather, there’s nothing to do and the food. But, for me, it’s not like that. I play for a club I love, the biggest club, and everything else doesn’t matter.”
Over the past few years I have written several articles on these players, comparing their attitudes and contribution to the team. Chances are, this is the last one I’ll get to write, as both players should leave in January.
Tevez should go under a cloud of shame, with both blues and reds happy to see the back of him, another mercenary exposed. In contrast, the disappointment that surrounds Berba’s exit should be massive. One of the most talented players I’ve seen at United, who never quite clicked fully, but whose attitude towards the club is exemplary.
Of course, there is the possibility of Berba staying until summer, or even beyond if the club choose to activate the one year extension clause in his contract, but it seems ridiculous prolonging this. He isn’t an impact player like Chicharito or Solskjaer, ready to come off the bench for the last ten minutes after not playing for a fortnight. Aside from that, he is so much better and deserves so much better than that. So if the club can’t offer that to him, he should leave.
Berbatov won’t be remembered by all the way I would like him to, that classy Bulgarian fella who won us our 19th title, but I do hope our fans can respect him for the contribution he has made and way he behaves. When you look at how players like Carlos Tevez, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Mark Hughes left our club, or the things they went on to do and say, we should be thankful for a player who genuinely seems to get United. We got rid of that horrible Argie troll and replaced him with a proper gent who loves playing for this club. Whatever happens next, whether at United or elsewhere, I genuinely hope he gets all he deserves. Top player, top bloke.

Berbatov admits Manchester United is his destination.

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov admits Man United is his destination. Now he is happy and enjoy playing for the club he really loves.

Dimitar Bebatov has been strong linked with Paris Saint German which will probably offer
a decent bid in this January transfer window. And the latest one, Valencia also will offer
12 million pound to get him away from Old Trafford. But Berbatov insists he wants to remain to be a part of red devil family.

"I'm happy here," Berbatov told MUTV. "My family is together in Manchester. I hear people complain about the weather, there's nothing to do and the food.

"But, for me, it's not like that. I play for a club I love, the biggest club, and everything else doesn't matter.”

He added: "He (agent Emil Danchev) called me to say we have interest from Manchester United. I said, 'Don't joke with me,' but he said he was serious.

"So I was speechless. When the biggest club contacts you, it's a big deal for me coming from a small country like Bulgaria.

"My mind was always set on joining Manchester United.

"How can you not go to United? I don't play for money. I play for glory and winning championships.”
