It's not that we shall never be in Asia again, but as far as this particular pre-season is concerned, United will end their Far East tour with tomorrow's lunchtime (our time) kick-off against Greentown of China. They are essentially a mid-table club in China and will not pose as much a threat as our previous opponents IF United don't doze through the match.
Going into this game, Sir Alex has praised United's forwards who have responded to the urge to 'step up' by scoring the goals that have won us all our games so far. Owen has 2 and so do the pair of Macheda and Rooney. Berbatov got our winner on Friday so it does give them a little confidence going into the much tougher fixtures next week.
That aside, Sir Alex was asked at his pre-match press conference what he thought about the Man City Carlos Tevez poster and in summary, he called it 'arrogance'. The United boss said since his arrival at United, City have always had a problem with their neighbours--and long may that continue!
Sir Alex also reckons that Owen could get us 15 goals next season if he plays 25 games. That, in my eyes, would make him the signing of the summer. If Tevez who we were going to pay 25m for only got 10 goals or so in 52 games last season, then I'll take the 15 if Owen can get them. He certainly has shown he can.
If you thought that the fanaticism of United in China was any less, the above pictures taken from http://www.therepublikofmancunia.com/
