Boxing Day 2011 Recap:

Is David Beckham headed to PSG?

There has been constant news about Englishman David Beckham heading back to Europe to finish his footballing career. Even last year, everyone was certain he was going to England once the new year came around. He did end up going to Tottenham, but just for a training loan. Harry Redknapp wanted to catch him on a 3 month loan, but LA Galaxy’s staff didn’t allow the deal. He played his heart out in the MLS season and finally added the MLS Cup to his list of awards. His contract with LA is now over and he must figure out what he wants from here.

Man Utd Bounce Back Against Wolves

**So this post is a few days old, just never got around to
posting it**

Man United bounced back from dropping points in the EPL and being knocked out of the Champions League by beating Wolverhampton 4-1. United had dropped points to Newcastle a few weeks ago and then was hit with knockout from the Champions League by not being able to beat FC Basel. There was a lot of concern on their future if they continued like this. The Manchurian tide was sky blue.
United's top player Wayne Rooney and Nani were out of form, until Saturday that is. Both Rooney and Nani scored two goals each. Is United back in top form? They were playing great in the beginning of the season so it might just have been a fluke. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger seems to believe that;
"You want to play in the Champions League but the risk is that you have to go out at some stage. You have to deal with the disappointment, that’s part of being a big club. “Let’s not forget that Manchester United have played in three finals out of the last four, so for them we have to consider it (exit) as an accident."
I personally think it’s great that he is looking out for other English clubs even if they might have a rivalry in the EPL. What do y’all think about Man Utd right now? Do they have an honest chance of winning anything this season or will Man City shatter those dreams?
