Manchester United 2010/2011 jersey

The new Manchester United home kit, featuring a white collar and the logo of new sponsors the Aon Corporation, was revealed on Wednesday at Niketown in Chicago.
Designed by Nike and adorned with the logo of their new sponsor Aon, the world's largest insurance brokerage believes the four-year sponsorship deal -- which reports have valued at $120 million to $130 million -- can help the company build its global brand name and boost business.

The sponsorship is viewed as one of the most prestigious in sports due to United's massive popularity and a global fan base that is estimated at 333 million worldwide.

Messi admire Walcott

Lionel Messi says he is amazed Fabio Capello left Theo Walcott out of the England squad and believes he could have made the difference against Germany and Algeria.
"I must say that at the time I thought it was a bad decision to leave Theo Walcott at home, and I think that has been proved right," he said in the Star. "I can only speak from experience but he was one of the most dangerous players I have ever played against."

During last season's Champions League quarter-final at Emirates Stadium, Walcott came on as a substitute as Arsenal trailed Barcelona 2-0. His goal sparked a comeback that led to a 2-2 draw in the first leg, and Messi says his team-mates identified him as a key threat for the return.

"Barcelona players are not scared easily but I can tell you that when we played Arsenal last season he truly worried us," he said.

"When we were playing Arsenal at the Emirates, we were so in control of the game at 2-0 - with all respect, Arsenal were not even in the game - then Theo came on and changed the game. He pretty much single-handedly salvaged a draw against Barcelona that night.

"Even in the return leg, our manager Pep Guardiola was telling us he was the player to watch out for, and the best players in the world like Xavi and Gerard Pique were telling us to watch out for him. The truth is that he really rattled him.

"If he could do that against Barcelona, think what he could have done against Germany and Algeria. Even if he didn't start, he would still have been very important for England.

Walcott vs Messi clip

I think it's up to Fabio Capello decision.He wan't the team that with discipline. And why Messi want to give comment? Even he(the best player of the World ) can't shine in the 2010 World Cup. So will Walcott give impact?? I don't think so..

Maradona altercation with German fans

Sorry for wrong place. As we know, Maradona never play or involved in English Premier League but I just love their character. He's absolute the unique character in World Cup 2010 . Watch the Maradona reaction picture on the Argentina vs Germany.
