Manchester United Message Board
made a mockery of the claim that Ashley Cole is the best left back in the world. Amazing when you consider it was his first game since the world cup. Also made a mockery of all those claims by chelsea fans that Terry and Cole`s poor performance against utd in the Community Shield was because they had just got back to training and weren`t match fit.

A statement from the French Football Federation stated:
- Nicolas Anelka is sanctioned with an 18-game suspension from selection for the France team.
- A five-game suspension from selection for the France team has been issued to Patrice Evra.
- Franck Ribery will have to serve a three-game suspension.
- Jeremy Toulalan is punished with one-game suspension.
- The commission takes note of the explanation provided by Eric Abidal, who has not been sanctioned.”
I'm quite happy over this; less travelling for him - he can rest during international weeks.
You see and believe what you want to see and believe. I shall be more impressed with how independent commentators view who "the best left back in the world"** is once the season is fully under way.
Chelsea weren't fully match fit in the CS. Neither were United, I imagine. United had the better game and won. I'm not sure what point you're trying to prove.
** Not that it's measurable or meaningful.
