    ofcourse this signing has not filled UNITED fans with great exciment- still no word from Rag or RooneyOneceABlue.

    Both of whom have gone into hiding since the football lesson they got in the CL final

    No dought both waiting for United to get the cheque book out to sign some top star....Karim Bezame? opps!! no .....he also snabbed United and went to play for a bigger club

    I remember when Fergie signed Teddy Sheringham. Everyone was laughing at that. He turned out to be a really influential player and a great signing.

    I look forward to seeing where MIchael Owen fits into his plans.

    Actually I think you are spot on. He will be a great signing.

    He's still another scoucer though!

    I was never a huge fan of Owen's but always had to respect the number of goals he has always scored. At Real, he showed his ability to be an impact player from the bench, ending a season with the highest goals per minute ratio.

    Even, at Newcastle, he managed 10 in 30 last season in a very poor side and while plagued by injuries.

    It's a no loose situation for Fergie, three things can happen: he comes back to his former self and scores loads of goals, he is used as a sub and scores goals or he is injury prone and rubbish and costs us pretty much nothing.

    He's 29 and there is no reason to say he is past his peak providing he can stay injury free. Although, given the bambe-esque nature of his knee injury while playing for England I have my doubts.

    I'd hope he's not our major forward signing this season. I'd expect at least 2 more first squad players to be signed. Douglas Costa looks superb and maybe pick off a couple of players from Real, like Schneider and/or Huntelaar? Should be good value to be had.

    He's shown the steel balls to take a massive salary cut to re-ignite his career and pitch for a place in the national side.

    Beckham for all his ability missed an opportunity by signing for LA Galaxy rather than fighting for a top prem club. I know he is back with England but he missed a season.

    Yes!

    The huge slump in England shirt sales resulted in our squad not being able to afford the air fare to the finals. So to save embarrassment, we 'pretended' not to qualify. Honest

    Mickey Mouse cup anyway.

    It's not about coping, it's about making the right choices for his longer term and imediate future. Becks was lured by the money and his silly mesianic mission to evangelise the US. He is the Michael Jackson of football!

    Owen has made a brilliant move in agreeing a 50% pay cut to get into man u. He will do very for you lot so shut yer teeth and flip me burger
