As always, United fans around the world rushed to our message board after reading the breaking news about Carlos Tevez on ManUtd.com. Here are some extracts...
I'm very disappointed, I would have loved him to stay, his work ethic was brilliant. But we are a bigger club than two players. I'm sure Sir Alex will have replacements in mind; however I think Macheda and Welbeck can really stake a claim now. In an ideal world I would like to see Benzema, Ribery and Valencia come but I don't think we'll get Ribery as Munich are asking for ridiculous money. Personally I think we should use the money offered for Tevez (25 million) + 5m to Lyon straight off to get Benzema, then tie up the Valencia deal with Wigan. Then I think someone like Ashley Young could be a great hit at OT, especially under the guidance of SAF. He would be a good buy at 15-20m. I would like to say good luck to Carlos and Ronny and thank them for their service, but United will move on and come out of this stronger.

I'm gutted. The two players that are leaving, Ronaldo and Tevez, will leave a huge hole. They both have different attributes and are quality players. I am just praying with all my heart that by this time next week we all have something to rejoice about with some new signings. I am shocked at how fast both players have left but I hope "What goes around, comes around" is true for us.
The truth is that Tevez is a good player but will not be greatly missed like Ronaldo. What United needs is a player that can deliver goals always and Tevez does not belong to that class. Sir
