Be careful with Whiskey nose, the murder I have seen this man get away with in the last 20 years regardless of rules or who is/was in the right, is sickening and infuriating. He does what he wants, when he wants and the stupid old fuck always gets appeased one way or another.

This is the Man who dictated to the FA and Premier League and then the High Court that we couldn't sign a player he decided he didn't want us to and the prick got his way.

He is the only Manager in the Premier League who is allowed to flaunt the FA rule that says all Managers MUST attend ALL postmatch press conferences as he doesn't like doing them. He rarely does any my Journo mate says.

Rafa missed one once because of a personal issue and was fined.

Also the top dog at Utd is no 2 at the FA now too.

Horrible club who act like a spoilt kid and a bully but all too often get their way, and because SAF hasn't, for once, got his way here, and I'm proper chuffed he hasn't, he is fuming as its not what he's used to happening.
It's because his son was accused of taking back handers as an agent by the BBC so he simply stopped giving interviews.

When do we play Man U at home and will Fryers be on the bench? I think Fergie will wind em up for that game.

fryers is apparently joining the development squad, not the first team yet. can't see him at LB for us this year, considering BAE is back this arvo - according to his tweet - plus we have Naughton/Jan and dare I say even Bale that can play there...

Development players are available to play in the 1st XI. Do we always announce a player is joining the Development Squad when we sign someone or is this a way of circumventing the rules?

If Fryers was prominsed £20K a week and straight into the 1st team squad as left back cover, it is unlikely that he would except being put into the Development squad unless it were to make it appear we hadn't circumvented the rules, which obviously we have. Someone will have had a word with the lad and told him how we are going to have to play it to avoid charges.

I don't think he will be on the subs bench, that would just inflame the situation but I wouldn't be at all surprised if he is not in the 1st XI squad next season having "developed" enough in the few months until the season ends in May.

er... I know. We haven't circumvented anything - it's all above board and completed. I would think he will be in the senior squad next season, but I also think you only half read my response 'cos you've started spouting drivel subsequently. (y)

You have to laugh at the indignant Manu camp. In the 70's they were subject to a Panoram prog where they were exposed as starting the "bung" culture.
At that time we were on par with them but lost out on at least two players because of this, Gordan McQueen and Joe Jordan.
This was the start of our decline and their ascendance possibly?
ps They got away with the Panorama thing as their then chairman had a heart attack and snuffed it!!!

Watched that David Attenborough in Africa programme the other day, the way those Ostriches buried their heads in the sand was amazing.

I believe Man U set a trap and Levy has fallen into it. People on here predicted that he would come to us when he joined Liege, so do you really believe Fergie and the rest of the board had no idea that could happen also? No chance.

United are getting what they deserve to be honest. Their valuation of Fryers was 6m but they weren't prepared to give him the wage to match that valuation.

It seems that we've done this all above board and I'm assuming he's already been registered anyway so baconface can keep his chops shut quite frankly.

Isn't this more like "underhand" rather than down right illegal?

"Fryers is understood to have been told that he will go straight into the Spurs first-team squad under new head coach Andre Villas-Boas as competition for Benoit Assou-Ekotto, with Danny Rose likely to leave the Londoners this summer." Goal.com 5th July

JJ is of course spot on when he says Fryers will join in January:

This.

underhand stuff is not something i condone, but when SAF can bend the rules in his favour and demand 6 million for a player who apparently they are not to bothered to lose is just a joke. worth 3million more than Livermore who has over a season of premier league experience, really?

Much ado about nothing IMO

More importantly is the lad going to make it?! Surely if he was that good United would go all out to keep him. Especially being a Manchester lad.

Too many young promising English players believe their own hype stop working and ultimately fail. I've seen too many average young English youngsters in my time.

Time will tell.....

Not much of a trap mullers, Spur won't pay £6m so let him go to Belgium so Spurs can get him on the cheap in 6months then we cam acuse them of manipulating the rules,that'll show them.
Not sure about falling I'd have thought Levy would have jumped into it.

Whilst I think the whole thing is hilarious, and I'm pleased to see the kid join if he's any good, I'm puzzled over the attitude to Rose.

He's had an undeserved bad rap on here IMO. I agree that he was very underwhelming on the wing, but his performances at LB were far more promising. I think that judgement's supported by the fact that he's been the Maccam's best player this season whilst playing in that position. The whole scenario reminds me of Kyle Naughton, who many on here had decided was pants, and then went and tore it up at Norwich on loan. He's now back here, and a lot on SC have reversed their opinion of him.

Benny's starting to get on a bit, and we have no idea how his form will be after such a long lay-off. We have an England U21 who's playing LB for a premiership club and earning rave reviews. Why do we want shot of him?

By all accounts they were very bothered to lose him. They offered him a contract which he turned down wanting greater forst team oportunities. The press at the time said Fergie was furious, which I believe came from a former player if memory serves. He wouldn't be making a fuss now if he wasn't bothered then.

i agree, which is why i said apparently, but meant it more from a fans perspective not the club. i am all for the rule of paying somd money especially as clubs rely on the income their prospects generate but i have no sympathy for man u or red nose at all.
