I like Manchester United because soon will play Radamel Falcao. He's a great player and his score is amazing. Manchester United have great players like Rooney or Di Maria, no doubt, the best team of the premier league.

Hi leethao - You're right, Rio Ferdinand was a great defender for Manchester Utd. He's moved to QPR this summer. What do you think about that? Will you support QPR? Who will be the most important defenders for MU now that Ferdinand and Vidic have left the club?

Manchester United is the fantastic football club in the world. They have got several great player like Wayne Rooney, R. van Persie, and Juan Matta. The new Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal has many experience. He won some title league in differend country. Louis van Gaal is my favorit manager after sir alex. I think, van Gaal has anything which is need as the succesful manager in manchester united.
