Just as I was preparing to enjoy a feast on football on Television from what many would think is a 'different' United team, news comes in that United's tour in Indonesia has been called off due to bomb blasts in Kuala Lumpur. Apparently one of the blasts was at the luxury hotel where our players were supposed to reside. It must be gutting news to fans that side who were anxious to see the reigning English Champions. The game was a 100,000 sell out so you can imagine the disappointment. The club will have to re-arrange their tour in the Far East--hopefully, it means we get to play another side.
It's Friday morning here so I was a bit taken aback when I read that United arrived yesterday on Friday--I hadn't taken into account the different time zones that we're in. At a press conference on arrival, Sir Alex stunned the journalists by revealing that United had signed a 21 year old Norwegian whose name has been withheld until it is officially announced. The United boss claims that he was worried that other clubs were making contact with him and so they had to act quickly. The 'mystery' signing will not join United till January. As if to stress his earlier stance the Gaffer went on to add that he was the last buy United were going to make this summer!
Meanwhile, a certain Portuguese footballer called Cristiano Ronaldo has backed Michael Owen to be a hit in the United team. I won't add anything to that!
UPDATE: SKYSPORTS has just revealed that the young lad we've signed is called MAME BRIAM DIOUF from FK Molde.
