    I can’t help but think £18m plus for Carrick looks like spectacularly bad business.

    Don’t get me wrong, I think he’s a good player … I’d just be looking for a bit more than good for the guts of twenty million.

    Hey! Very Nice! Check out this website I found where you can make extra cash.
    It’s not available everywhere, so go to the site and see if you can find something. I found something and make
    and extra $900 a month!

    Just think, in 3,300 years, I could afford to have Michael Carrick come round and do my hoovering.

    I’ve already started saving.

    Carrick is a good enough player, and I’m all in favour of English teams giving English players a chance to shine. But the meltdown in Italian football is this summer’s big transfer story. For £18m, you could probably have bought Patrick Vieira AND (most of) Andrea Pirlo. I don’t think the transfer market is really Sir Alex’s strongest suit.

    I must admit to being more than gently amused at reading this article three years after it was written. Predictions about the futures of Manchester United, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs, Leeds United and Andriy Shevchenko proved to be well wide of the mark, didn’t they!
