Should Have Gone To Specsavers

Should Have Gone To Specsavers

Manchester United Gaffer Alex Ferguson could be about to sign for Specsavers, after making a statement that clearly indicates that his glasses aren't doing their job.

The purple nosed pensioner claims that his Brazilian midfielder Anderson dominated Cesc Fabregas when the teams met last month at Ashburton Grove.

Anderson - a player touted by some as 'the next Ronaldinho' during his time at Porto, played more like Joey Barton than his play-making countryman when the two teams met.

He did little going forward, but was lunging into tackles left right and centre and was even lucky to have stayed on the pitch for 90 minutes after some vicious tackles.

But of course Fergie didn't see that. Speaking of the youngster the United manager said: 'Anderson's battle with Cesc Fabregas against Arsenal was interesting because they were two very influential players in the game.

'The boy Fabregas is going through a golden period at Arsenal, but I thought that Anderson dominated that position.'


All I can say is 'Oiii, Fergie, NOOO!'

Match Stats: Fabregas Good Passes = 50/ 75% of passes forward(attacking passes)/ Key passes - 3/ Goals = 1/ Goal attempts 4 on target 2. Anderson Good passes = 25/ 44% of passes forward(attacking passes)/ Key passes - 1/ Goals = 0/ Goal attempts 1 on target 1. Let's hope he continues that level of dominance in the next game then.

Head, sand, buried anyone?? Amos has just given you the facts. What has Anderson done so far? Nadda. What has Fabregas done this season? Scored 11 goals, got about the same amount of assists and help us get 4 points clear of you lot. And there's no need to insult people. I'll remove some of your post. No more of that thankyou.

I don't get it at all. Are we talking about the same match?! Was Sir referring to another ball game, like that kind at Ronaldo's home?

HAHAHAHA, I saw this headline and knew what it was talking about instantly. I know that old purple/red nose likes the mind games but I fear for him this is moving further away from psychollogy and closer to senility.

Looks like we have a new nerd (united4life) to try to rile us. Anyway, just because old Red Nose spent around 15 million, the manure fans thinks he's quality. I guess, they forgot the last Brazilian they spent money on that flop big time, you know, Kleberson, remember him? simmy8_2000, I know what Anderson done so far, he rolled around like a little girl in an attempt to get Cesc booked. And Anderson did such a great job to.

Yes BMF, that's all Anderson's done so far. And our Cesc's humble enough to say "He (Ferguson) is right, I'm not a great player because we haven't won anything yet. I've just got an FA Cup." Now THAT, plus contributing to a great CL 2006 run and this year's fantastic and consistent performances, is what Cesc has done. Who's better now?

I like how Cesc made fun of him after Anderson got up after rolling on the ground. Funny stuff. If he dominated over Cesc, where was he when he scored the equalizer? If I had a penny for every player saying that he will man-mark Cesc and keep him quiet, I'll be rich.
