United is still NR1 in Manchester

Rooney-Bicycle-KickManchester United won the second derby against Manchester City saturday morning and showed once and for all who is NR1 in Manchester and the league.

I have been a United fan my whole life and and have seen many good players represent the club. But it is two players I like more than others. David Beckham and Wayne Rooney. Beckham doesn´t play anymore for the Club but is still a hero for many United fans. Rooney is for me the best player in the world right now, in my opinion ever. He has the whole package: quality, skill, speed, physique and heart, and he still improve his game every season. Lately as a goal scorer. Against City he scored the match winning goal with a bicycle kick. Fantastic goal! You can see the goal on the link here and you will understand what I mean. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55_m5-8rQm0

See United beat their rivals is fantastic. The biggest rivals has always been Liverpool and Arsenal, since City struggled with their performance and been playing in the second division for a long time. That changed when City got new owners. They simply bought a completely new team and made City over a night a competitor to win the league, and one of Uniteds biggest rivals again. One of the players they bought is Carlos Tevez. They bought him from Manchester United. The forbidden move. That makes the win even better. Show them which team that is Nr1 in Manchester and England. The Big Brother.

He Is Back

I am so happy right now of the news that it is official. Peter Forsberg signs with the Colorado Avalanche.

Peter Forsberg

Forsberg is, if not the best hockey player Sweden ever had certainly one of them. In my opinion he is one of the best players who ever played the game. He has won everything that is possible to win. Two Stanley Cups, two Olympic gold medals, two World Cup gold medal and NHL MVP. He is one of the greats and it is awesome that he is back in the show again.

I grew up in Sweden with watching Forsberg play for the Swedish team MoDo and after that watching him play in the NHL for the Colorado Avalanche.  Forsberg has always been my favorite player and I have followed his career closely. You can say a lot about Forsberg as a player and describe why he is so good. I have always admired his attitude that always work hard, be a team player and give everything you got to win the game, and always be humble.

I hope his problems with the foot is solved and he can concentrate and play hockey as he used to. Before this injury he was at the top of his career. Had won everything that is possible (mentioned in the beginning) and had many years to go. But this problems have been stopping him from playing and many people have missed him (ask the Avalanche fans.) Like I said I really hope his problems is solved once and for all so we can enjoy one of the best players in the history on more time.

The last time he played in the NHL and with the Avalanche was in 2008. That time he only played 16 games (7 in the playoffs) before the foot started t
