The Football Association has renewed its attempts to challenge Sir Alex Ferguson's conduct with referees, lodging their third improper conduct charge in two seasons, eight months after the last one was dismissed on appeal. It is a sign of Ferguson's enduring intensity – yesterday being the 22nd anniversary of the day he first walked into Old Trafford – that after watching his side batter Hull City all over Old Trafford on Saturday, that he should have launched into battle with the referee Mike Dean before the official had left the pitch.

Monday 08 September 2008
Raymond Domenech held on to his job by his fingertips after leading France through a diabolical Euro 2008. They were hammered by the Dutch, drew with Romania and lost to Italy, scoring just one goal in the process before heading home. It was a surprise the French federation stuck with their coach and it may be regretting that decision today after France were humbled 3-1 in Austria in their opening World Cup qualification match on Saturday.

A few years watching England teaches you that on the occasions when Wayne Rooney is substituted it pays to keep an eye on him as he walks back to the bench. Ahead, you mentally map out the objects that could fall victim to his unique sense of personal injustice. That crate of sports drinks. The advertising hoarding. The unsuspecting ball boy. As the hand of his manager reaches out, you can never be sure until the very last moment whether Rooney will grasp it or ignore him.

Sir Alex Ferguson will be given the opportunity to anoint his successor as Manchester United manager after the club's chief executive, David Gill, confirmed that the club's owners, the Glazer family, plan to seek the opinion and advice of the 66-year-old when he finally announces his retirement at Old Trafford.

Wayne Rooney is back in action and using his head. Manchester United launched their build-up to the defence of their Premier League title with a comfortable 2-0 victory at Aberdeen, Rooney winning a penalty for the opening goal and nodding in the second himself.
Saturday 12 July 2008
Manchester United, still reeling from Cristiano Ronaldo's assertion that he is enslaved by them, finally confirmed the departure of assistant manager Carlos Queiroz last night though there is an increasing sense that a summer to forget may be kickstarted with a £20m bid for Tottenham's Dimitar Berbatov.

Real Madrid appear to have accepted that they will not be able to prise Cristiano Ronaldo away from Old Trafford in time for the new season. Real's president, Ramon Calderon, said yesterday that he expects the Portuguese winger to stay in the Premier League for another season at least.
Wednesday 25 June 2008
Cristiano Ronaldo has evidently already made up his mind he wants to join Real Madrid but if it is a compelling case for leaving Manchester United that he needs then the uncertainty over the future of assistant manager Carlos Queiroz may yet provide it. Queiroz left the door open to taking over as manager of the Portugal team. "I'm not going to put myself on the market because the decision on the national coach should not be a result of those who make themselves candidates, but a decision based on what the [Portuguese football] federation judges is necessary for the team," he said. "I'm not going to tell you whether or not I'm contacted."
