News & Notes 8/27/2006

DC United Notes
So in the fallout of last nights 5-2 obliteration at the hands of the LA Galaxy, Peter Nowak gave some good points as to what will be done to correct the performance problems that are afflicting United. Check out Steve Goff's report for more info.

Matias Donnet has received his work visa and should be included in the line-up for the match this Saturday in LA against Chivas USA.

Bayern draw 0-0; sign Van Bommel
Bayern Munich drew 0-0 yesterday against Nuremburg in the Bundesliga. Bayern are tied with Nuremburg on points, but sit in second place due to goal differential.

Bayern have also announced that they have signed Mark Van Bommel from Barcelona to a contract till 2010. It is figured that Van Bommel will be paired in the midfield with Owen Hargraves, who is still having Manchester United dreams dancing in his head, but is now $30,000 poorer after being fined by Bayern over the entire tantrum that Owen has been throwing.

Manchester United still 100%, win 2-1 over Wigan
Mikael Silvestre's first goal of the season in the 12th minute along with Ryan Giggs 51st minute goal were enough to keep Man United at the top of the EPL standings, with 9 points from the first three matches after defeating Wigan 2-1. The bigger story around this match was that Rio Ferdinand seems to have broken a toe and should miss both of England's Euro 2008 qualifiers next week. United's next match is against Tottenham at Old Trafford on September 9th, followed by the start of the 2006/07 Champions League campaign with Celtic visiting Old Trafford.
