What The F*** Are United Up To?



Not satisfied with driving away one of the best midfielders of all time, in Roy Keane, United now seem to be doing the same with Ruud.

From the BBC:

Ruud van Nistelrooy's Manchester United future is in doubt after he drove away from Old Trafford three hours before the final match against Charlton.
A club statement said: "We can confirm Ruud van Nistelrooy has gone home."
He was at Old Trafford on Sunday morning and is understood to have been fully fit and expecting to play.
Van Nistelrooy, 29, has spent much of the final third of the season on the bench and this latest omission puts his United future in doubt.

Although he finished as one of the league's top scorers, the guy is - in reality - a bit shit. He consistently loses the ball, can't seem to stay on his feet and scores goals that any other striker could put away. If he goes, I won't be unhappy. His game isn't easy on the eye.

Yeah agree with that. The fact is that he is not much of a team player - rarely passes the ball when there is a 10% chance of getting a shot in etc. His control is poor and frankly a fit Saha is a better player than him and has shown him up in a poor light in recent months.

He looks awkard and all the goals he scores look easy, but isn't that what great players do (Not look awkward, but make the difficult look easy).
It takes great timing to get within those six inches of the goal for a tap-in.
Ruud is the second ranked striker in the league and third ranked player according to the official league statistics.
