3rd choice behind Rooney and Hernandez.

maybe THAT is one of the reasons why ManU lost against Barca Doh

the TOP EPL scorer NOT even on the bench Yikes

it seems as if Rooney may indeed have scored in the CL Final

but overall

statistically

he seems to have been quite SHIT

(in German)

Barca are certainly a pretty decent side

even by Bundesliga standards

BUT

SAF fucked this up BAD

THE question now really on everybody's mind in Germany is

"IF ManU is THE gold-standard of the EPL

and IF Barca is HEAD and SHOULDERS above the VERY BEST the UK can muster football-wise

and IF La Liga is WORSE than the Bundesliga (if ever so slightly), as argued by none other than Ruud van Horseface

WHAT does that tell us about the relative quality of Bundesliga vis-a-is EPL football ?"

Otto my good friend

What questions were uttered in Germany when United's reserves delivered a beating never before seen in a CL semi final to a full strength Schalke side ?

Berbatov has been on the bench for months now during United's run to the title. Almost all his goals have come at the safe haven of Old Trafford where opposition sides (including Schalke) seem to pull their pants down and go down without even attempting to fight. Away from home he is usually exposed, hence Fergie deeming a retired Michael Owen to be the more useful bench option on Saturday.

Lot of Berbatov goals owe to Nani's assistance. It's fair to say that both players got their tanks emptied as they had to cover for absence of Rooney & Valencia.

Nor having Berbatov in the bench is the reason United lost to Barca? Is this what Otto is telling us?

Berbatov has failed to score against any side of note, other than perhaps Liverpool. Why on earth anyone would try and argue that he could have impacted upon the final is utterly compelling.

Bluts assessment that he's the least "EPL compatible" striker is also rather amusing when you consider that Barcelona show more grit, determination and speed off the ball as anything in England. Berbatov would have stood no chance getting the time on the ball to look "elegant". It's not just in England that he wouldn't be compatible. The best players and teams now everywhere in Europe employ a pressing game from the front that means unless players like Berbatov adapt, they ll never have much joy against the top sides. Just like his identi kit doppelgńnger Ibrahimovic. This ain't an "EPL compatible" thing anymore, he might do wonderful things against Blackburn or Schalke when he has lightyears on the ball, but teams like Madrid and Barcelona he won't ever be compatible playing against.

Schalke certainly did NOT do the Bundesliga proud against ManU

Mad Jens was back in London at the time and his Arsenal mates were all wondering how a team so shit could represent the Bundesliga in the CL

but the truth is that Schalke played ManU when they were in FREEFALL

ever since Neuer announced his effective retirement from Schalke, the team lost EVERY SINGLE COMPETITIVE game

getting trounced not only by ManU but also by Bayern and losing to COLOGNE as well Laugh

they finished the season in 14th place

Laugh

so really, Man U humiliated an ALMOST eventually relegated team

the Magath sacking + Neuer announcement broke the team

+

when you take a look at the Schalke team featured against ManU

you really have pretty much a bunch of LOSERS by ManU standards

in other words, the Schalke First 11 would NEVER EVER even have made the ManU SECOND team

some would not even have managed to persuade SAF to allow them to play in his 4th team

Magath took a bunch of innocent village peasants

gave them forks and shovels

and

sent them into battle against the 11 Valencia Samurai, SPANISH ELITE FORCES

Rangnick managed to keep up the momentum for the Italian battle

but then

the peasants looked into his fearful eyes and realised they were going to sacrifice their lives and families against the 11 Manunian Quick-Draws

think about it like this, children

you hand out shovels and forks to

Stan, Laurel, Harry Potter, Miss Piggy, Larry David, Woody Allen, Jerry Lewis, the kid from Home Alone, Cindy Lauper, Monk, Stevie Wonder + you give a cooking pan to Oprah

and you let them fight it out with

John Wayne, Charles Bronson, Charlton Heston, Jet Li, the Sand Filled Nazi Machine from Hellboy, Hellboy himself, Blade, Steed, Mad Jens, Saul from the Bible and Darth Wader

IF

the first team gets coached and motivated by God himself, they have a chance against the second team as coached by the great Arnold from Austria

IF, however

the first team gets coached by yet another peasant, possibly called Hans,der Kartoffel Bauer

it could get get ugly indeed

There is one thing that really speaks for Rooney: He always makes me feel better about myself. Hair transplant with 25? Yikes For Christ's sake, and I thought I was getting old.

I love how he says he's balding at 25, as if he wasn't balding when he was 16.

I assume it's meant to grow out over time? Hopefully, or he just looks like a dot to dot puzzle.
