Man Utd Replace Ronaldo With Toon Donkey!

Last updated : 03 July 2009 By Footy Mad - Editor

For the first time I can ever remember, Man Utd players slated Ferguson for his team selection after the Champions League final ... and some suggested it was the beginning of the end of their mighty reign.

The reigning champions have lost star man Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina striker Carlos Tevez since the end of last season, and some fear the cracks are starting to show.

Liverpool and Chelsea came close to upsetting the Manc apple cart last season, and those two clubs must be delighted to see Newcastle Utd 'parasite' Michael Owen is set to join the club.

Owen suffered from a series of injury problems during his stint at St James' Park and Sir Alex Ferguson was thought to be lining up a pay-as-you-play deal for the forward.

The 29-year-old was believed to be on around £110,000 at Newcastle, and gave back about £5-worth of commitment.

Owen has failed to persuade England coach Fabio Capello that he has both the form and fitness to add to his 89 international caps ... and let's hope he never reaches 90.
