    Getting rid of Tevez.

    I would say that, Tevez can dribble and get past the defenders better than Berba and Rooney. I remember Man Utd's defense of last season became so tight that it was even tighter than the season before last. How did that happen? Because Man Utd brought in a player or two last season which were very good at bringing trouble to the defense. The teams played with each other in training, if some players were so good at ripping apart the defense, the defense would learn to prevent that from happening and got improvement as well. That was why the defense became tighter. And who were the one so great to help the team improve? One of them was Tevez.

    Tevez has some similar quality of Barca's Messi. They can both dribble and control the ball very well. They can both shoot and assist as well. Messi is more creative and even more agile but Tevez is stronger, tougher and not prone to injury (ever since he joined Man Utd, I haven't seen him sidelined because of injury.). Messi can score wonderful goals, so as Tevez. Tevez' goals most of the time had some kind of suddenness in them, ie you never expect to see them coming. Those kind of goals are deadly to the defense. In other words, Tevez is unpredictable, unlike Ronaldo :D . And Tevez can curl in free kicks into goals too, though we seem never have the chance to see that with Ronaldo showing off all the time :D . He can score with his head even if he is not tall. He can take penalty very well too.

    Some people even said he was headless chicken but the way I see it, he was not. He was just full of energy some time, couldn't help but had to run around :D . But I noticed he played better when he was a bit cooler on the pitch. Talented player never brainless.

    Berba, Rooney and Tevez they are in some way different than each other. One is better than others in some way or another. Each of them has different quality which gives options to the team. But you still can't deny the fact that this 32m pound player is really exceptional. Letting go of him, and you may never find one with the same again.

    • I'd love to keep Tevez if we can but, I don't blame United for trying to get a better deal considering the economic situation - in fact they have a fidicuary duty to do so.

      Also, I don't understand the comment about "I don't like how he has been treated this season"? How has he been treated badly? By not being the first choice striker? That isn't being treated badly, the boss has to make a choice and right now his choice seems to prefer Rooney/Berba pairing.

      If you look at the news the last couple of days, the same story or 3 stories are constantly being rebranded/retitled to sensationalize the situation.

      Take his agent's comments, the first reports were titled "Joorbachian denies Tevez rift", then it becomes "Agent is being Cagey" then same story became that "Agent says he may move".

      All 3 of them report the same thing but, titled differently and the paragraphs moved around or bits from other stories added to it.

      Fact of the matter is Tevez is playing quite a bit, maybe not from the start but, he is playing and doing his job. United and Tevez/Agent have to sit down and flush things out that work out for everyone involved. Hopefully that will mean United keeping him and his slimy agent making enough money to keep him happy instead of trying to push Tevez some place else so he can pocket more.
