  2. Sindrinho says:

    I’m watching the press conference live, and he just signed for Molde! He’s takin Richard Hartis with him, and Mark Dempsey is also part of his team..

  3. MG says:

    And now that he’s gone there is a tear in my eye

    Thank you for everything Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, you will never be forgotten.

    You cannot teach defiance you either have it or you don’t.

    The number 20 shirt and the one who proudly wore it was one of the greatest beacons of defiance within Manchester United.

    Come back when you are ready to come back we are all waiting.

  4. Sindrinho says:

    He’s still calling Fergie “boss”

  5. Long John O'Shea says:

    He was alright…

    But I’d of expected a hell of a lot more for the money we paid for him

  6. willierednut says:

    Get that right foot insured. There’s gold in that foot. ” Our fans are the best in the world. You sir are a proper legend, good luck. Can United score, they always score, we’ll never die!

  7. Costas says:

    @Long John O’Shea

    I hope that was sarcasm, lol.

  8. Long John O'Shea says:

    @ Costas,

    I should bloody hope so as well :)

  9. Costas says:

    @Long John O’Shea

    Ah ok. Cool then. :) For a minute I started wondering what’s good enough for 2 million pounds, lol.

  10. Lovin' United says:

    @Long John O’Shea

    That’s one hell of a sarcasm…

  11. kimblim says:

    LEGEND!

    Coolest, most deadly finisher ever at United – headers, left foot, right foot, long range, short range, poacher’s goals – was there anything he couldn’t do?

    Oh, and the tackle against Newcastle wasn’t bad either ;)

  12. Walter Mitty says:

    Nice juxtaposition – right beneath the 2 tributes to Ole is the “Lamps 4 Wazza 4eva IDST” article. Both deadly strikers, both once loved by their fans, but I’ll only be sorry to see one go.

  13. rooneyisclass says:

    Fuckin lethal

  14. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Agree with all the positive accolades. Wonderful signing, wonderful player, wonderful person by all accounts. Come back to us soon Ole Gunnar Solskaer!

  15. erictheredhead says:

    Good luck Ole, and thanks for the memories!!

  16. RedGem says:

    Ole, please don’t go. I love you very much.

    :( :( :(

  17. Doghouse says:

    Great video, great player. I hope he’ll be back. He was one of the smartest players I ever saw. Would come of the bench and know -exactly- what to do, and do it. I still remember listening to the radio back at uni when he came off the bench against Forest with twenty minutes to play and scored four. Such a great reader of the game. I think he’ll be a spectacular manager.

  18. The Real AB says:

    Great Player and a Great Man…
    You will be missed Ole :(
    Hope to see you back soon and all the best for whatever you do in future.

    Wow.. Thanks Costas for bringing back the memories of the tackle in the game against toons. One of the moment which will definatly make you fall in Love with Ole, if you already haven’t.

  19. Mikael says:

    Ole might not have been the fastet, or the strongest, or the most flamboyant striker but there he had three key ingridients:

    He knew where the goal was
    He knew where to stand
    He had two great feet

    All the best of luck to you and I hope we’ll se you at Old Trafford in a couple of years!

  20. smartalex says:

    Thank you Sir. You are always at Old Trafford. We shall support Molde as you spread the joy that is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

  21. paedar says:

    Thanks for all your goals – Ole!!!
    Special thanks for Barcelona 1999 – you’re a legend, come home sooner rather than later!!!!!

  22. mufc4life says:

    u r r solkjaer…………………gd luck ole

  23. KJ says:

    Chills down my spine.. tears down my face

    2OLEgend

  24. CedarsDevil says:

    Without doubt the best ‘natural’ finisher the game has ever and will ever see and I do not care who you through into the mix of this debate, right foot, left foot, headers, volleys, tap ins, always in the right place, sliding in goals… what a LEGEND………….. You will ALWAYS be in our hearts OLE

  25. CedarsDevil says:

    @ Costas

    Loved the link you posted on the tackle vs Newcastle……… You could actually tell he said to Becks ‘I had to’ Bloody brilliant

  26. willierednut says:

    Na CedarsDevil, Jimmy greaves hands down the best finisher from these shores any way.

  27. CedarsDevil says:

    willie

    fair point, lets keep it from the early 70′s onwards otherwise i would through in Law and Violet into the equation! LOL

  28. willierednut says:

    You can throw anyone in to the mix lol. My old man says Greavesy was the best goalscorer there’s ever been, but in my generation, I’d go with Van Basten.

  29. Kings says:

    3 mins 50 secs – Hair standing on the back of my neck moment! Great player, forever loved by all at United. Always a place at Old Trafford for you Ole, come home soon.

  30. RedScot says:

    What a montage, pure dead brilliant.
    Anybody who is not smiling like crazy through that aint a United fan.
    A man who could score in so many different ways and made it look easy. The sign of class.
    The heart of a lion, no fear.
    The molde was broken when they made him!

  31. Dicko says:

    Nice.

    I think it’s fair to say Ole knew where the goal was….

    A wonderful player and a fine man. You’re welcome back at Old Trafford any time, Ole. T-ra for now!

  32. javonazul says:

    OLEGEND !!!
    Wish we had a guy like this in our squad. Whaaat a goalscorer!!
    Come back Ole, you are United all the way.

  33. Bochup says:

    OLEgend!!!!

    If you guys looked at the video, it just shows the commitment and love that this guy have for UNITED.

    OLE is always there when there is a rebound or save from the keepers or defenders.

    I don’t see anyone runs all the way like him anymore.

    UNITED strikers should really learn from this legend.

  34. 90+Until We Score says:

    I think if Ole was playing today everybody arnd would be talking Giggs Scholes Neville Ole….Legend….people like him comes once in a blue moon….You are my Solskjaer….

  35. Pork Fried Rice says:

    Saw THAT goal and got goose bump…

    Can we start a movement for Ole to be knighted? too early?
