Bielsa & Guardiola grill Ferguson

Athletic Bilbao put a serious dent in Manchester United's Europa League aspirations on Thursday night, recording a 3-2 victory over Sir Alex Ferguson's men at Old Trafford. It was a familiar feeling for the English champions, who were convincingly defeated 3-1 in last season's Champions League final by Barcelona.

Perhaps Pep Guardiola and Marcelo Bielsa discussed strategies for beating United during their famous 11-hour football talk at a barbecue in Argentina before the Spaniard moved into coaching ...

Adam and Liverpool reach for the sky

Despite Charlie Adam and Steven Gerrard's best efforts, Liverpool finally ended six years of hurt on Sunday as Kenny Dalglish's side lifted the League Cup with a 3-2 penalty shoot-out win over Cardiff City. A goal from Martin Skrtel in normal time and another from Dirk Kuyt in extra time earned the Reds the chance to contest the shoot-out, and luckily for Adam, Gerrard and Co. Cardiff's penalties were even shoddier

Managing to infinity and beyond

Sir Alex Ferguson continues to be unrelenting over his stewardship at Manchester United as he targets another 'two or three more years' at the helm. The fans will be delighted to hear that his legendary stint at Old Trafford, stretching more than 25 years already, is set to continue. To ease himself out of the club, Ferguson targets an ambassadorial role when he eventually steps down. After one false retirement date in 2002, however, one cannot help but wonder, will he ever call it a day ...?

Chelsea 3-0 Manchester United - this looks like a job for Howard Webb!

Manchester United had a familiar saviour on Sunday afternoon when they slipped to a three-goal deficit at the hands of Chelsea. But it was not Wayne Rooney nor Javier Hernandez who rescued a point for the champions, it was Howard Webb who performed his (now perfected) deus ex machina act and awarded two soft penalties against the hosts to allow Sir Alex Ferguson's side to eventually complete a Superman-like recovery.

Cantona, Sir Bobby follow Scholes out of retirement?

Fergie: Don't worry Paul - you won't be the oldest in my team by February!
 Hours before the weekend's Mancunian derby, Manchester United dropped a bombshell by revealing that manager Sir Alex Ferguson had dragged Paul Scholes out of retirement to aid his midfield crisis.

Despite a couple of shaky moments, the 37-year-old debutant looked good on the ball, and showcased the same tenacity that defined his career during his first stint.
Apparently fed up with his youthful side's anaemic performances, Ferguson is looking to bring club legends Eric Cantona and Sir Bobby Charlton's back to Old Trafford.

With Wayne Rooney's form waxing and waning with every passing game, Charlton and Cantona's eyes for goal could come in useful - they netted over 300 goals for the club between them.

Let's just hope the duo aren't suffering from persistent hip problems.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson drinks through the New Year




Sir Alex Ferguson was left needing a stiff drink over the New Year period after watching his Manchester United team crash to successive defeats.

The Premier League champions had the chance to go into 2012 top of the table with what appeared to be the easiest match of the season - at home to basement club Blackburn.

It was not to be. Yakubu sent the relegation candidates into a two-goal lead, before the hosts got back on level terms. Fate intervened and a late Jack Hanley effort gave Rovers an unlikely 3-2 victory at Old Trafford.

Four days later it was a similar story. A lacklustre display at the Sports Direct Arena saw Newcastle run out 3-0 winners, with Phil Jones scoring a comical own goal to compound matters.

10 things to expect from the Champions League final between Barcelona & Manchester United

Ahead of Saturday night's big season finale between the two European giants, Goal.com light-heartedly presents what will take place on and off the pitch at Wembley Stadium

By Carlo Garganese & Kris Voakes

10) Xavi Hernandez records more passes at Wembley than Michael Carrick...in his career...including friendlies...even school ones.
9) Dani Alves goes to ground after a particularly bad foul by Paul Scholes. The referee sends off Scholes but also books Alves. When the full-back tries to claim he didn't dive, the referee points out: "Of course you dived... the tackle was on Busquets."

8) A minute later Wayne Rooney is clean through on goal, but suddenly stops running after hearing a whistle...blown by suspended Barcelona reserve goalkeeper Jose Pinto in the crowd. The striker is promptly sent off.
7) Sir Alex Ferguson is furious about the red card and the fake whistle. “Typical cheating Catalans,” he is overheard muttering to his press officer after forgetting to switch off his microphone.
6) Sky Sports' Jamie ‘never heard of Pato’ Redknapp also blasts Barcelona’s sportsmanship. “None of this foreign diving and cheating goes on in our league,” he snipes to co-pundits Steven Gerrard and Didier Drogba.
5) After Pele remarks that Javier Hernandez is the “next Lionel Messi”, the Mexican suffers an inexplicable drop in form - failing to score another goal for three years, and retiring from the game at the age of just 25.

4) Messi scores a stunning hat-trick, including a slalom past the entire Man Utd team, but some Real Madrid fans still proclaim Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player in the world due to his 53 goals against Almeria and Levante.
3) An unnamed Premier League footballer, who is married with children, is denied the 33rd title of his career after coming on as an 85th minute substitute. In unrelated news, Ryan Giggs plays the last five minutes as he misses out on a third Champions League crown.
2) Giggs tries to match the heroics of Manchester United legend George Best. Like Best, he stars in a Man Utd team at Wembley in the European Cup final. Like Best, he attempts to score by sneaking up from behind Victor Valdes. And just like Best, he goes home with a Miss World contestant afterwards!
1) With Barcelona cruising to a 3-0 win, the fourth official indicates four minutes injury time, sending Sir Alex Ferguson into a rage. "At least 47 minutes should have been added," he roars, as he spits out his chewing gum.

TIMES in the Premier League

hello there
this cartoon is about both Manchester teams wins this year; Man Utd for the league, and Man City for the cup
in the past Liverpool used to see themselves in an upper level on Man Utd cos they had more leagues, but this year Man Utd broke this thing
and in another hand Man Utd used to disgrace City of not winning any trophy, even they built a clock that counts how many years that City is out of trophies
