Chelsea yesterday responded angrily to suggestions they had derailed Portugal's efforts at Euro 2008 by announcing Luiz Felipe Scolari's appointment as their new manager. In light of bitter complaints from the Portuguese Football Federation president, Gilberto Madail, Chelsea were again forced to defend their behaviour.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be urged by his advisers not put in a transfer request at Manchester United.

Aaron Ramsey is regarded as the outstanding talent of his generation and last night Sir Alex Ferguson was left counting the cost of not personally meeting the 17-year-old after he opted to join Arsenal instead. The Manchester United manager has lost the first major transfer battle of the summer to Arsène Wenger, whose meeting with Ramsey swung the £5m deal in Arsenal's favour.

The Football Association says it will consider appealing against an independent commission verdict that cleared the Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and his assistant Carlos Queiroz of improper conduct.

Cristiano Ronaldo has reiterated yet again that he is happy at Manchester United and "would love to continue" at Old Trafford. The Portugal winger has been persistently linked with Real Madrid by the Spanish media and has not helped quell the speculation by announcing he would make a decision on his future shortly.

Even with a European Cup winners' medal round his neck and a debt of gratitude to his penalty-taking team-mates that would humble other men, Cristiano Ronaldo was still acting the tiresome superstar on Wednesday night. With the Fifa World Player of the Year title surely on its way to him too, it can only be a matter of time before the fastest-growing ego in world football is in danger of expanding beyond all control this summer.

Roy Keane did not mention Sir Alex Ferguson by name yesterday but the Manchester United manager is certain to be intrigued at least, and probably angered, by Keane's labelling of some Premier League managers as "hypocrites" over their stance on referees and discipline, particularly as Keane referred to a manager who was sent of at Bolton this season. Ferguson was dismissed by referee Mark Clattenburg at half-time during Manchester United's 1-0 defeat at Bolton in November.

Some would argue that today should be an occasion to toast Harry Redknapp, for whom the FA Cup has created an opportunity, after the most dramatic of weekends, to strike a blow for a seemingly dying breed as well as to win the first significant honour of a colourful career.

Some day Sir Alex Ferguson will get the credit he deserves. Perhaps it will be when he is gone from Manchester United. A result as comprehensive as this inevitably provoked another outbreak of sneering at Newcastle United and Kevin Keegan, but that should not be allowed to obscure the controlled swirl of the champions' attacking on Saturday night and Ferguson's primary role in assembling both the personnel involved and instilling in them a philosophy that embraces risk and beauty with the overlooked genius of common-sense defending.
Sunday 24 February 2008
One of the best days of Sir Alex Ferguson's season, one of the worst of Kevin Keegan's managerial career. That 5-0 Newcastle video from 1996 can go back on to the shelf where it belongs as Manchester United's 5-1 victory last night was of such emphasis and ease that it obliterated memory. All that could be seen was the here and now and while for the champions it is beguiling and full of anticipation following Arsenal's dropped points at Birmingham, for Newcastle it is miserable and the worst may yet be to come.

As Manchester United picked up the pieces following Sunday's devastating home defeat to their neighbours Manchester City, Ryan Giggs said that there could be no repeat of the performance that has left their title chances in doubt. But privately the club are concerned that national associations are no longer willing to compromise on players over international friendlies.

Manchester United wore the unadorned red and white of a more innocent age yesterday but unfortunately it was just about all they could do for the memory of the Busby Babes.
Monday 11 February 2008
The weight of their club's history is a burden that every great Manchester United team must learn to bear and yesterday – of all days – it bore down on Sir Alex Ferguson's side like an anvil. The tribute to those they lost at Munich 50 years ago was moving, profound and fitting in all but one regrettable respect: the performance of the men in the retro 1958 red shirts.
Saturday 19 January 2008
Manchester United's chief executive, David Gill, who was publicly opposed to the Glazer family's takeover at the club, has had his house attacked by supporters angered by his recent positive comments when unveiling record profits.
