A Very Red Christmas: Give the Gift of Signed United Gear from ICONS

The holiday season is upon us, and while some already know what they’re receiving or are giving someone else, there are many who are still drawing a blank.

For many a Manchester United fan, the ideal gift – outside of getting to meet their United favorites or having a chance to step out onto the pitch at Old Trafford – would be primo match tickets.

However, such an experience isn’t readily available for most United supporters who live in the United States, unfortunately. But thanks to ICONS, you or the American Red in your life can have something that’s every bit as special and personal.

Ryan Giggs Signed Photo: 1999 FA Cup Semifinal Goal v. Arsenal

Few goals in United history, or in FA Cup or English football history for that matter, compare to Giggsy’s extra-time wonder goal that saw United past Arsenal in an unforgettable 1999 FA Cup semifinal replay.

That moment, when he cut through the Arsenal defense and then through the hearts of many Arsenal supporters, kept United’s treble dream alive, and it’s the most memorable moment in the career of a man who’s made many memorable moments in the past two decades.

This photo commemorates that legendary strike, and better yet, it’s signed by the man himself.

2. Wayne Rooney Signed Photo: Overhead Kick v. Manchester City

It may not have won a title for United, but that Wayne Rooney overhead kick will always be remembered because not only was it a key goal in United’s run to a record 19th title, it was an overhead kick that proved to be a late winner against archrivals City.

3. Wayne Rooney Signed Photo: Record 19th Title-Winning Penalty v. Blackburn

While Rooney’s overhead kick wasn’t a title winner, it was one of the reasons why his penalty against Blackburn three months later did.

After a crucial 2-1 win over title rivals Chelsea, United needed only a draw at Ewood Park to wrap up #19, and Rooney’s 73rd-minute penalty secured a 1-1 draw and the record-breaking title with it.

4. Wayne Rooney #10 Signed Shirt

Rooney scored his 150th goal for United in the 8-2 rout of Arsenal in August, and it’s highly probable that he will go on to become the most prolific scorer in United history. His #10 shirt is a hot commodity and will be for a long, long time, but to have a signed one puts you in special company.

These are just a few of the many items of United memorabilia that you can find at ICONS, as you can find several other items that commemorate United’s past and present. And though this time of year isn’t the only time of year to give and get great gifts, with several items being in limited supply, don’t risk missing out on a piece of United.

And hey, if you happen to have a loved one who, for some strange reason, loves a different team, ICONS has memorabilia for many top club and international teams, so if you were starved for ideas before, you shouldn’t be any longer.

    Toodles

  3. Mr C says:

    Big thanks to Chelski tonight. We’re not there yet but getting closer…so much for the title race being over…it ain’t even started yet -we’ve been here and done it before. We’re overrun with injuries and not even playing that well yet are only 2 points behind Shitty. Squeaky bum time at the Council house tonight…

    The blue moon rose never peaked and now sinking

  5. smartalex says:

    Great news that the bitters lost, and got a red card. Boas may force Scott to add to that timeline.

    I wonder what our position in the league was last season after 15 games. Can anyone link a site where you can easily review round-by-round progress of previous seasons?

    U N I T E D wee fat Frank will do me! With a knick knack paddy whack, give a dog a bone, why don’t city fuck off home! :lol: 19!

  7. Costas says:

    ;)

    Now we have to win our next 2. That’s the main thing.

  8. Mikekelly12 says:

    Nice birthday prezzie from fat Frank. Cheers pal.

  9. fergie is the boss says:

    its great shitty lost, cannot believe 2005 was repeated but united have a chance for the title still

  10. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Have to say the some of the decisions were shocking. DeSilva should have had a pen or be booked for diving. An Yaya Toure should have be of. FA have to give a ban on Yaya Toure if they want to perserve and semblance of fairplay. Shocking he didn’t get Straight red.

    There was no Surgeon General’s Health warning on the pack of camels I bought.
    When I smoked the first one it damn near kicked me to death.
    Stirrups are a must.

    Fuck off city. Not so cocky now Nasri are you you greddy fucking whore? Hope he crashes his motor on his way home. Can’t even get on the park. Chose the petrodollar. Kudos to the rentboys who looked in for a tough night. I know United fucked up in that six one but just shows the difference. United still attacked at three one down with ten men. Richard Madely brings on a shit load of defensive players but backfired. Overhyped cunts. Media massaging their balls about their unbeaten run. Fuck off fourteen games. United went till feb last year. This great bitters side are a draw better off. That dodgy pen against the barcodes and we would be level. They have had nish injuries while we have been crippled. They have been at the top of their game while we have been in first gear YET only two points difference. The fuckers concede EVERY game. I honestly don’t get yaya. Fat lazy cunt only shows up when he fancies it. Should have walked tonight for his bitch slap and kick. Fucking arrogant horrible cunts. Fuck off Platt you big foreheaded prick. God I hate them. Well done Frank son. Well pleased. This “world class“ squad of theirs is a myth. Silva and kompany aside they have fucking Barry milner nutjob balotelli who is a fucking disgrace. Clchy. Zabaleta. Lescott. Not all that fucking good. Just need united to pounce now and pile on the pressure. They aint there for the shirt its all about the cash. Greedy whores. Let’s see how they handle this. Balotelli losing the plot. Toure a disgrace tonight. Fuck city. United need players back and let’s go for this twenty. Hopefully that ginger abu durham will stop hyping them up and saying they won’t gety beat. Fuck off durham. I am pretty sure the media will point to the ten men but failed to mention it after our game. Well done rentboys.

  13. fergie is the boss says:

    Paul Parker – shitty will be there, but I just think there are no outstanding side in the prem not since 2009, they are all good but beatable, shitty are very good at being the playground bully’s, which could serve them well but the title is still anyone’s. I do think united still need to look themselves hard in the mirror because the past few months have not been gd enough

  14. dazbomber says:

    King Eric – fucking brilliant

  15. Fred says:

    King Eric – top post at 22:39 pal, spot on about everything! Toure is one fat lazy cunt. Even Aguero is hit and miss. Before the Liverpool game Toure was mas mouthing off about going the whole season unbeaten. Ha! Let’s see how the overhyped dickheads respond to this setback.

    I thought Chelsea would do the business tonight and I think Arsenal will beat them on Sunday as well. Would be just our luck to drop points at QPR but let’s hope not. Chelsea have done us a big favour tonight and I hope our lads do the business this weekend.

  16. fergie is the boss says:

    Fred – I do think aguero is a fantastic player, him and rooney are the same they are both hit and miss, where one minute they can be outstanding and then look way off the mark unless you are messi

  17. JC says:

    Take it back Fred before you jynx us all!

  18. smartalex says:

    Great comment King Eric!

  19. Fred says:

    JC – good point. Can’t remember who it was but someone on here joked that City would beat us 5-0 in the derby. Turned out they weren’t far wrong. :(

    We will definitely beat QPR this weekend. 8)

  20. fergie is the boss says:

    Fred – yea I remember that, someone trolled on here saying you wait or on those lines, and the cunt basically was right

  21. JC says:

    Wheh, dodged a bullet there, thanks Fred… :D

  22. King Eric says:

    Cheers lads.

  23. WillieRedNut says:

    RedScot – Straight to the point, as always? Lol.

  24. akanemo says:

    i want a signed berba overhead kick photo against liverpool :D

  25. lordrt says:

    Loving it, the bitters are downed for the first time, and more to come hopefully
    Thats what happen cunts when you are 10 men down, but the only mistake which may be Utd did in the derby was to keep on attacking instead of shutting down the shop and wait for the moment to equalize instead… 2 points behind, Utd will leap over them soon, come on SAF, just get the team in good condition

  26. SAF3 says:

    Nr. 3
    Jones in the backgroung.
