Well I've joked for a while saying Aguero would becoming to Manchester and it looks like it's finally happening albeit for the wrong team.

Well, the Corinthians have withdrawn their offer for Tevez. That boy won't be happy there for another season, I do wonder what he will do.

Someone else will come in for him.

I suspect City will be willing to sell him for a more reasonable price when they realise that he'll only be sat in the reserves all season if they don't.

I agree.
He wasn't exactly thrilled to be playing for them half way through the season and the obvious cracks were showing in the relationship between him and the manager. He will obviously be signed by a team in a hot country! XD

Considering he said he wouldn't go back to Manchester even for a holiday, I'm guessing he won't be going back.

Chances are he'll just buy out his contract if there are no other options.

I just want to Agüero to leave already and give us the cash. It's getting too annoying, and with that money we could get Rossi from Villarreal to fill in the spot and still get extra money. It's getting waaaaay too boring already and he has ruined most his reputation. If he must go, then it's fine, but he should stop saying that he doesn't care about us anymore. Cesc is handling it wonderfully well in comparison.

Oh wow, neighbours Latvia are in our group aswell, farewell Latvia!

We'll say that and then suddenly the 'shock' defeats to Montenegro and Ukraine come in and we'll end up struggling to qualify.

At least we have Moldova & San Marino to put a few past.

England are already struggling to top a group with Montenegro in, even though we have been playing really well. Montenegro have been a surprise package in qualifying.
And this world cup draw isnt great for England unlike other groups there are 4 teams that can realistically top the group, Poland and Ukraine have good teams that have maybe not been at the top level recently but have qualified for past world cups.

Poland & Ukraine could come off the back of a successful euro 2012 tournament too since it will be on their own turf.

The Championship starts on Saturday. Going to the Boro v Portsmouth game.

Soon after of course everything will have kicked off. :D

Well, two mistakes by De Gea and it looks like we could be out of the runnings already.
However, I never count out my Manchester United till the final whistle.
Welbeck off, Hernández on.

I think this is were I finally have my realisation.

I forgot about the community shield until I went on the bbc sport website.

Its been a transition for a while but I think I'm fairly sure I'm a Boro fan now after something like nine years supporting United. Good to see them pull it back to 2-2 though.

I forgot Hernández wasn't on the bench, but the 2 defensive and 1 midfield changes aren't one I would make, however, it has paid off and Man U are firmly on top.

Crazy!

Comeback --check.
Scoring at the last minute --check.

Same old Man Utd. Fully deserved, though.

lmao... I never even knew this thread existed...

3-2 to Manchester United. I'm so happy. Lost a bit of edge during the last 10 minutes of first half, but otherwise we were in total control of the match.

Fully agree.
I knew they would make a mistake as that ball bounced because they just looked like they didn't know what to do with it.

I'm happy to see David winning something. Unlike some certain people who also left our team this summer, I wish him the best.

I felt like Aguero should've at least gotten a chance at today's match. It would be interesting to see former teammates playing on opposite sides this season.

I think a fair few would argue whether he deserves to win anything though.

Good win for United.
