    Re: Bolt to ManUp Against Real Madrid

    Bolt has always maintained that he would love to play football for United, and is certainly confident in his ability.
    "I would not take up the challenge if I didn't think I was good enough," he said recently. "I am a very accomplished player and know I could make a difference.
    I predict total and utter disaster.
    Now . . . if Real Madrid tries an off-side trap 40m out . . . . :wink:

      That's what I'm thinking too. The fact that he can't carry the baton in his left hand leads me to believe that he's probably as limited athletically as Michael Jordan, and not the all-around athlete that Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson were.

        Anybody remember what happened when Jan Železný tried out for the Atlanta Braves?

          He threw lightning bolts and incinerated the poor catcher. He hung up his cleats in inconsolable grief.
          That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

          World Record Holder Jan Zelezny tried out for the Atlanta Braves as a pitcher after winning the 96 Olympics and was able to throw between 120-125mph.
          Yeah . . . OK . . . :roll:

            Snyder estimated later that Zelezny was throwing 80 to 85 miles an hour, and Zelezny estimated his effort at about 70 percent.

              There are charity games all the time, with non-soccer celebrities as well as recently retired and not so recently retired soccer pros, some a bit overweight. Sometimes they are shown on Fox Soccer. They are fairly low key affairs. I doubt that Bolt is risking much.

                Zelezny put so much effort into the tryout that he made his right shoulder sore and consequently suffered one of his only three losses in 1996.

                  How Serious is Bolt about Man Utd?

                  The Worlds fastest man considering moving to Man Utd after the friendly game?? your thoughts. Has he done all he has needed to do in Track and Field?

                  I have started a poll here.

                      He wouldn't be out of place on the current England team. He'd improve their chances of scoring as they'd just lob the ball at him and hope they get a lucky deflection off his head.

                        That's not a bad idea, especially as Carroll and Rooney are injured. I wonder if they can turn him into a Plastic Limey ASAP? If he could play for Man U and England I'm sure he wouldn't think twice about changing nationality.

                          Could he take the pressure from the British press? Is his lunchbox up to standard?
