    @glory glory holy trin

    Was waiting for some one to come and suck chelsea off. There playing hull! Don’t know what game u are watching but created 15-20 goal scoring chances in the first half lol don’t make me laugh…. Which striker is gonna get 20 plus goals for them?!? Chelsea and man shitty are favourites are they, lets see who’s gonna be favourites after mid-way?!? I know, there called Manchester United and we can do what we like!!

    Gloryglory. Oh yeah rentboys been amazing haven’t they fucking muppet. There for taking next Monday. United are clinical. Chelsea are not.

    Sushi, the travelling support did have a problem with Rooney at the end. I’m glad he wasn’t booed and abused as that would just give him a reason to moan and request the move he so wants. He got a decent reception, didn’t ackowledge us and clearly wanted to be elsewhere.

    I travel all over watching United and if he doesn’t want to be there I don’t want to travel around the coutry and Europe to watch an overpaid, petulant tosser.

    I don’t even think he was that good last season. He had a touch like a rapist and his passing was wayward. We could do a lot better with someone who actually want to be at United.

    Lads who were willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and other die hard reds I know have got no time for him after his sulking yesterday.

    If and only if we can get a good price for him going abroad he should go, otherwise he stays and sulks.

    Manc m41. Is that what Souness said? Fucking dipper knee-jerk cunt.

  5. Forever@red@united.com says:

    @mufc m41

    Well said mate, think we should let him sulk and be fourth choice until he proves himself, meaning he wants to play for the club, manger and most of all the fans… We know RVP and chica will get goals and hopefully with Danny boy getting two, he will be able to kick on and score more! Kagawa will play the role behind the striker with ease! What chelski did today didn’t worry me at all! Bring on bank Holliday Monday!! Manchester United I love you

    I dont understand why a manutd fan would agree with the media’s version moyes’ statement about rooney and van persie and even calling it a gaffe. Rooney only played frequently as a no 9 for one season (10/11), the rest he paired with the top man as the second striker and shared goal soccering responsibilities. Rvn, tevez, saha, berbatov, henandez/welbeck and recently Rvp have been no 9′s 4 us over the years so i dont see why stating that a versitile no’ 10 would be quality back up for the main striker should be seen as a gaffe even by our own supporters. Obviously roo’s problem is his ego and lack of humility to accept he wont always be the star of the show. I guess players with the humility and selflesness of giggs and scholesy are on the verge of extinction.

  7. MUFCPHIL says:

    TO SAY YOU WANT TO GO ONCE IS ACCEPTABLE. TO SAY IT AGAIN IS NOT.
    IF NO FORIEGN TEAM COMES IN LET HIM PLAY WITH THE STIFFS.
    I WOULDN’T ENTERTAIN ANYONE WHO DOESN’T WANT TO PUT THE RED JERSEY ON.
    RUN HIS CONTRACT DOWN IN THE RESERVES AND LET HIM FESTER ON HIS OWN.
    IT IS HE WHO HAS MADE THIS SITUATION, NOT UNITED.
    WE PLAYED A LOT BETTER WITHOUT HIM LAST SEASON AND I DON’T SEE WHY IT WILL BE ANY DIFFERANT THIS SEASON.
    GET RID OF THE CANCER I SAY, EITHER CUT IT OUT OR PUT IT WHERE IT WON’T HURT NOR INFECT ANYONE ELSE WTHIN UNITED.

  8. KeanosMagicHat says:

    Sushi’s post at 17:13 might not be phrased the way I would say it but, with the exception of the Anzhi comment as they now have no money (allegedly) he speaks the truth.

    There’s been no reported serious interest from abroad and we shouldn’t sell him to another English club.

    Would Rooney even go abroad anyway?

  9. Kings says:

    glory Glory Holy Trin – Fuck off you venomous cunt.

    FOrever @ 17:57: “we should let him sulk and be fourth choice until he proves himself, meaning he wants to play for the club, manger and most of all the fans”

    He’s going to get “tough love” and a very, very, very demanding job-description – no more of this wandering up/down/side-to-side. I reckon that he’s been told, in no uncertain terms, “Do your job or sit on the bench and come in when one of the first-choice guys gets tired.”

    TheWayneBoy (and “his people”) got one over on SAF in ambition-gate/2010; Fergy didn’t forget and after bringing in players who could supplant him (purchasing Chicharito, RVP, and KagawaBunga while waiting on DannyTheLad’s maturation) he’s now basically “surplus-to-requirements”. Like the Italians say, “smile and remember”. SAF has probably had a wonderful summer, glorying in his absolute and complete check-mate of TheWayneBoy’s ambitions.

    From my perspective, there are two likely outcomes:

    first, he’s resigned to being stuck at OT for two more years and comes to grips with the corner in which he’s painted himself (and probably being “evolved” into TheScholesRole; or,

    second, CSKALondon make an offer-UTD-can’t-refuse: what would that be ? Sixty million in ca$h ? or more ??

    With regards to the second option, it wouldn’t happen until after the match a week-Monday.

    Indeed, Moyes’ line-up for the visit of TheRentBoyz to OT is going to be very, very, very, very interesting.

    Gentlemen, we have eight days of carnival ahead of us.

    This blog became like newspaper…makeing elephant from moscito…

  12. Forever@red@united.com says:

    I hope Rooney doesn’t start against chelski on bank holiday Monday! Think we should stick with the same team but play kagawa behind RVP in replacement of our legend giggs!! Our player looked in far better shape then them dirty rent boys today! If we play the same way, I can only see one out come ” my prediction is 3-1 united ” can’t fucking wait….

  13. ignatiusJ says:

    Unfortunately, I’ve come to expect these types of posts made in poor taste. I’ll revert back to a message I’ve written on these walls over the years again and again:

    Support your squad–every player in it. When our players go through tough times, we’re the only ones who will support. These professionals rely on our support. I accept that Rooney is less than worthy of it at the moment, but our collective perspective of the Rooney saga is 90% conjecture. We should be more incredulous when reading the newspapers, eh boys?

    Nothing like a pro-United site doing its best to turn us against our own players…

  14. gazzer says:

    The whole situation isa little awkward for everyone – Moyes, Rooney, his teammates and the fans.
    We all know that rooney can be a bit of a miserable fuck at times – he often doesn’t even celebrate his own goals.
    Moyes treated him with respect yesterday and talked him up after the game.
    Rooney worked his socks off selflessly (including the sprint he did for RVP in goal #3) despite not being in the best of shape.
    If Rooney was a jackass in tweeting how grateful he was to England for playing him, he certainly knows now he needs to be eased back into the team.

    Let’s back off and let the situation unfold. It’s still not too late for him to work his way back into the fold.

  15. Tannor says:

    Honestly Scot?
    This is not right and I share similar sentiments been expressed on here.
    Wayne with all his bull***t is still a United player and untill that changes, let’s get behind him.

  16. roadkill says:

    Let’s face it, any player that comes on wants to do his best whether to please the people who currently pay his wages or the ones who want to pay his wages. The Boy Wayne came on and certainly pleased his current boss by working hard, getting a couple of assists and doing what needed to be done.
    People don’t always realize that it is not what you do with the ball but what you do when you don’t have it which is most of the time. His runs ( and Wellbeck’s as well) some it up as to why this could be a very, very dangerous combination of players this season. Throw in Kags and you could get goals by the bagfulls IMHO.
    Hoping for the best and that includes not selling him to the rentboys and that smug Jose.

  17. montanared says:

    I don’t really see him as a United player anymore, I see him as a very talented mercenary, he played pretty well when he came on but his heart isn’t in it, people seem to forget that the guy is being paid 250,000 a week that is a million a month, there is wanting to wear the shirt and then there is doing your fucking job, a million a month? Yes he is a good player but we need a good team and if a players attitude is hurting the team that has to be considered as well as his skill and performance, he is is costing us alot of money and is costing the team as far as chemistry, unity and cameraderie. United have come a few goals away from winning 7 titles in a row while teams have spent ridiculous amounts of money to try and topple us, so quality and talent and cash value obviously aren’t everything when it comes to winning. It might sound corny but team spirit is crucial and Shrek is killing it, Fuck him, I don’t want him to go to Chelsea but anywhere is better than Old Trafford. It seems Rom is evenly split but I am on the side that feels that his disrespect towards the club has made his position untenable.

    agreed

    @thegaffer

    agreed

    same old shit round here tbh

  20. Cantona's Collar says:

    For all those that think Rooney should stay, consider this analogy.

    You’re watching a game and your mate says to you
    “You know. I think I’m going to support City. I dont think United are going to challenge anymore and City are buying all these great players. They look like where its at”
    You’d call him a daft cunt, list off all the reasong why he is a daft cunt to utter such shite and let him have a good think.
    Your mate comes back and says “Yeah, you’re right. I am a daft cunt to think City are anything other than a billionaires plaything and a team full of mercenaries. No, United is the team for me”

    And although City win an FA cup and the league, United win 2 league titles, only missing out on a 3rd by the last kick of the season.

    Towards the end of last season your mate gets the hump again cos he doesnt like Fergies tactics, even though United are running away with the league, and again announces to you that he’s finished with United. His head has been turned by another rich man and the bright lights of London.

    Would you even bother giving him a response?

    No, you’d tell him to fuck right off and give his season ticket to someone the actually WANTS to support the club.

  21. Bingo says:

    mufc m41, I can understand your frustration. But commenting on Rooney’s performance last season not a right thing to hear. Rooney was better striker/performer than Welback or Chicharito. Some of his play was brilliant. His passing to RVP for the goal against Aston Villa was superb. The champions league game where he produce two superb assist for RVP another match to remember.

  22. uniquetreble says:

    this was after the 3rd goal as during the 4th goal he was on the other side of the pitch

  23. Averio68 says:

    Didn’t he get a little beat up on this play? Maybe that is why he didnt make it up the field…or was it another play?

  24. Canada says:

    This picture………..misleading
    His body language during/after the game…………enlightening

    Mr. Ambition has backed himself in a corner. He ain’t getting sold in the BPL and nobody else has come for him.

    If he wants to play in Brazil he’s gotta man up and play well for us.

    Total respect for all the travelling away fans. You guys killed it the whole game.
    I’d rather focus on the 10 players that came over and acknowledged you than the one muppet that didn’t.

    WHAT’S THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN BEING TALKED ABOUT?

    NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT.
    Time to start ignoring the antics of a deluded muppet and focus on the football.

  25. LoneStarRed says:

    Canada’s spot on.

    I don’t care if he sulks. He has no choice but to perform if he wants to go to Brasil. And so he will, or get benched! MUFC hold all the cards. Selling him to Chelski would be suicidal. At the end of this season we sell him offshore.

    The media will do anything to sell papers

    My 2 and half year old boy was watching MOTD with me on Sunday morning, when Rooney was about to be subbed on he pointed at the screen and shouted “monkey man”.

    I thought he was a promising young defender. What happened?

    He needs a goal to boost his confidence with the team!
