Nope.Becks stayed tight lipped and has only ever spoken in glowing terms about the club & even the manager he had the falling out with.
Tevez… the club simply chose Berba over him.
It’s Ronaldo by a fecking country mile.
I post this from time to time so we don’t get wistfully nostalgic about Tevez:
After hearing Tevez spout off shit for so long I decided to put together a timeline of all that was said and done.
Here is why Carlos Tevez is a mercenary mary poppin that deserves no sympathy:
I still see alot of United fan's, blaming United and Ferguson for the loss of Carlos Tevez to our biggest rivals. If we take a look at the timeline of events, is it so clear?
August 2007 - Tevez signs for United. United's attack consists of Rooney, Saha, Tevez, Ronaldo.
May 2008 - United lift European Cup to compliment the Premiership trophy.
August 2008 - Perenial Injury victim Louis Saha looks on his way out as a squad with just Rooney and Tevez as recognised strikers with Ronaldo (who it is now known was playing his last season with us, something Fergie already knew).
Ferguson knew he would need to add another striker and as he is a manager always looking to the future he felt another dimension
was needed which is why he felt he should bring in Berbatov.
August 2008 - Berbatov signs, seeing that we have Rooney - Tevez and Berbatov with a soon to be leaving Ronaldo as our attack.
December 5th 2008 -
So..... We weren't making any effort to sign him? December 2008 and Carlos and his agent are being "difficult".
December 16th 2008 -
January 4th 2009 -
April 2nd 2009 -
May 10th 2009 -
So what changed Carlos? You were happy to wait until the season was over... "not about money"? No one has said it was.... could it be that City have offered you alot of money and you know the talk will soon start changing to that of money.....
Jun 27th - United are understood to have agreed a £25m deal for Carlos Tevez who's contract runs out on Jun 30th.
Jun 30th - Tevez understood to have agreed a deal 2 weeks ago with Manchester City.
July 14th 2009 - Tevez signs for City on a £150,000 a week contract for a reported £45m.
So lets get this straight.
1. We talk contracts, Tevez and Joorbachin are impossible to negotiate with. Tevez is happy with how he is treated.
2. Tevez denys talk of any contract talks but says he has agreed with Ferguson to to talk about it after the season has finished...
3. Before the season is finished, he starts talking about how money is not an issue but they have never had any contract talks and this upsets him,
despite agreeing it is best to wait unitl the football is finished....
4.United then agree a deal with Joorbachin for Carlos Tevez, who is one of only three strikers at the club following the departure of Ronaldo to Madrid, but Tevez had already agreed a big money deal with City....
Of course it wasn't the money.
You are a mercenary mary poppin who took all the United fans for mugs, you disrespected Ferguson and still maintain that "you had no choice to leave United" and that we will regret not treating you better".
I hope you get run over by your own Bentley.
You and your crooked agent are an example of everything that is wrong with modern football, so it's more than fitting that you join City.
100%.For me Tevez with “RIP Fergie” was the biggest disgrace I’ve seen from a former United player, but he was never an important figure for the club.
Ronaldo surely had his status as arguably the best footballer to wear United shirt in the last decades and the fanbase generally loved him even after his departure to Madrid. Now it’s all shattered and you won’t find many that respect him - a way bigger fallout.
And Roy never stated he didn’t respect his manager. Well then. Obviously he has since…but yes huge parallels between both situations.Keane and Ronaldo's are very similar, whatever anyone tries to say to the contrary. Only thing that makes Ronaldo's worse is it's with Piers Morgan..
He criticised his teammates individually and publicly don't let recency bias cloud the fact it was just as bad, albeit not an identical situation. I wonder if he's taken advice from Roy in giving this interview..And Roy never stated he didn’t respect his manager. Well then. Obviously he has since…but yes huge parallels between both situations.
Nar, we had the option to buy Tevez for a set pre-agreed contracted amount after lifting the CL…. We know this as a 100% fact.Nope.
Yeah refused to play and soon the club ended up relegated. I suppose his enduring legacy shows people will eventually forget this sorry Ronaldo episode and in 20 years focus more on the 2000s.Surely it's Best.
I know it wrere different times but in the end he regularly and publicly made an absolute mockery of the club, the manager, his team mates and the fans.
Yes. He criticised the performance of some players in a game that we lost heavily to Middlesbrough when he was employed as an analyst by MUTV. That’s entirely different to arranging to speak to Piers Morgan for 90 minutes independently and shitting on the entire club including stating you have zero respect for your current manager and previous one. There are parallels but it isn’t recency bias to say this is worse - especially within the context of him sticking in a transfer request 4 months ago and now claiming he’s being forced out.He criticised his teammates individually and publicly don't let recency bias cloud the fact it was just as bad, albeit not an identical situation. I wonder if he's taken advice from Roy in giving this interview..
The personal life grievances make this instance all the more messy and hurtful for all involved.
Of course they will.Yeah refused to play and soon the club ended up relegated. I suppose his enduring legacy shows people will eventually forget this sorry Ronaldo episode and in 20 years focus more on the 2000s.
