    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Tim Howard found out fast that playing for Manchester United is a lot different than being in goal for the Metrostars.

    Howard made 12 saves in his first game with the English Premier League champion, which beat Italian League winner Juventus 4-1 in an exhibition soccer game Thursday night. "The game is very fast," Howard said. "It's like getting thrown into a frying pan, but I have to get used to it." Howard's debut with the world's biggest club came of front of a sellout crowd of 79,005, the largest for a soccer game at Giants Stadium.

    The 24-year-old from North Brunswick, N.J., played in the same stadium for 4½ season with Major League Soccer's MetroStars before Manchester United acquired his rights on July 14 for $3.6 million.

    The 24-year-old Howard's whirlwind summer was thrust into another level on Sunday when he stopped two penalty kicks in Manchester United's victory over Arsenal, United's archrival, in the Community Shield match in Cardiff, Wales.

    Fabien Barthez wrecked his chances of reclaiming the number one goalkeeping spot at Manchester United with a wretched display last night. The Frenchman was the victim of a bizarre own goal and suffered the indignity of being hauled off by Sir Alex Ferguson five minutes before the end. Now Barthez is sure to start the Premiership season on the bench.

    Amazing to see the #3 USA goalkeeper replace France's #1 goalkeeper at the best club in the word!

    Best club in the world! Pull the other one, they're not even best in England. :mad:

    The English Football season kicked off again on Saturday, here's my forecast, feel free to remind me of it in May.

    PL Champions: ARSENAL
    FA Cup Winners :ARSENAL
    European Champions League Winners : REAL MADRID

    World & European Player of the Year : Thierry Henry (France/Arsenal)

    The best United can hope for is probably runner-up in the Premier League (although even that might be beyond them) and a last eight exit in the Champions League. I seriously believe that United's reign is over and Arsenal will win their third double in six years. COME ON YOU GUNNERS! :cool:

    We'll see. Chelsea has more chances than Arsenal, imho.

    Just saw the front page USA Today article on Timmy. Apparently he's found a Baptist church to attend in the Manchester area.

    link to the article

    Anybody heard a testimony of faith from him?
