Rant Cast 107 – Bébé, come back

March 30, 2012 Tags: Rant Cast 4 comments

On another packed show this week: regulars Ed and Paul discuss Manchester United’s narrow victory over Fulham in the Premier at Old Trafford. After a match United was fortunate to win, Sir Alex Ferguson expressed his anger with the Reds’ performance.

Meanwhile, over at Eastlands we ponder Patrick Vieira’s continued obsession with United – are referees and Sky TV conspiring to rob Manchester City of the title, or have the lunatics taken over the asylum?

Also on this week’s show, we talk Bébé – the errant Portuguese winger-cum-forward returned from serious injury this week to turn out for Beşiktaş in the Turkish Süper Lig.

Rio Ferdinand may be offered a new contract, taking the defender’s time at Old Trafford past a decade. Meanwhile, another rapidly ageing star, Michael Owen, says he wants to stay in football. Could it be at United?

Finally, there’s a preview of the next Monday’s fixture with Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park, and we take all your Twitter questions!

Is Bebe ripping it up in Turkey then? I knew he’d come good…

Now we are in the era of Glazernomics I think we should only sign players on free transfers this summer!
Sigurosson (fast improving/promising cm, good squad man)
Hoillet (promising winger/forward)
Clyne (promising full back)
Rodallega (replacement for Berba/Owen)
Figueroa (cover for Evra, De Laet to leave on a free)
We could do alot worse!

are you serious, or am i missing the joke?!

if we signed any of these players, perhaps other than clyne, i will be very worried for our ambitions…

Part joke, part serious.

At present

Sigurosson > Anderson, Pogba
Hoillet > Bebe, Macheda
Rodallega > Owen, Macheda, Bebe
Figueroa > Fabio, Fryers

We could easily sign Clyne, one more of the above list and somebody like Eriksen or Rodwell. Not that we should be, but this is how the 2012 United has to operate.
