Carrick Enjoys Hearing Amazing Fans Sing His Song

“Oh, oh, oh, it’s Carrick, you know, it’s hard to believe it’s not Scholes” is the song that was first penned years ago for Michael Carrick. The fact that a lot of fans (rightly) didn’t see him on a level with Scholes probably contributed to it not really taking off.

However, this afternoon, in our 2-0 win over QPR, our travelling fans sung the song on repeat in the second half and after leaving the ground.

“I certainly noticed the fans singing,” said Carrick. “Our travelling fans are amazing. It was nice to hear.”

    I honestly believe he will have his players focused and determined. Fergie’s constant parade up and down the touch-line shows an unquenchable thirst for football, the man literally lives the game and you can imagine he takes that love of the game home as wel. Fergie looks pumped up this season, signalling to his players that they dare not take their foot off the pedal, 100% shift and avoid any complacency. I don’t think mancini’s comment will bother fergie or the players, lessons have hopefully been learnt last season, hopefully they’ll be motivated further and drive across the finish line like a bull on extreme amount of caffeine.

    Last thing from me.

    Don’t get me wrong that I am comparing who is having a poorer season. Valencia, Young or whoever else, they are all playing their part. We are on course to get back our title, and everyone in the team has contributed. Yes you will hear me commenting about who has good games and who played poorly, But I have never ever thought that any of them is not good enough. Like in the treble season, yes the major players get the glory, but if the likes of Blomqvist & Butt wasn’t around, would we have won all that? And the amazing fact that Sheringham’s goal scoring record that season was pretty bad, shows that contribution, however little, plays their part, some greater than others, some going unnoticed. That is why I get damn pissed when so called supporters say certain players are not good enough. If we are going to be relegated, maybe those comments might have some truth, but we are winning and had it not been some lousy luck and the freak of nature that is Messi and Barca, we would already have been the most successful team, apart from Real’s 9 CL title. And still people think they know better than Sir Alex? Not saying he doesn’t make mistakes, but if its a game of poker, I’d put all my money on Sir Alex getting it right than anyone here

    You always get the media nit picking and looking for any potential destabilisation of united “oh hernandez isn’t starting many big games” but some how, he’ll do so at madrid. I don’t think so, the mexican just signed a long term contract and fergie won’t be sanctioning anything, hernandez has shown he understands the concept and importance of rotation. Every player wants to play but the premier league is demanding and tough, you’ve got to have expansive options and hernandez and other united players have all had their fair share of game time. This is the crucial part of the season in which every player has to roll up their sleeves and put in the shift to aid united, this not the time for individual protest about game time. To don the shirt of united, you have to adhere to the systtem, rotation is very important, it keeps the squad fresh, hungry and on its toes. Example of that is nani missing most of the season, he’s fresh and give united another dimension as he’s beginning to show. Every player has to pull in the same direction, fergie will allow nothing less.

    samuel – united WE stand – you are right about the press they have nothing bad to write about United so they will make anything up.We have nearly won the league and going well in the cups performance level is high and so is confidence ,i think because of what happen last season Sir Alex will not slip up this time.It was another solid performance yesterday we are now counting down the games.

    Respect for Bradford! Hope they pull off another mirracle. Either way, good for football! Both managers seem quality to be fair.

    As the other match, hoping for a Chelsea win in the Oil Firm game.
    It will be such a contrast between the two games. On the one hand Capital one cup showing what is the best of the English game with two clubs that could have died if not for the will of fans and management! On the other, the saddest side of the game, with two teams that signify everything that is wrong with todays game.

    Bring on the minging managers! More diving than a 10meters competition. El Cashlico! City Sheiks v Chelsea Oligarchs

  7. FletchTHEMAN says:

    15 points clear of some the oil slick disaster that polluting english football!

    29 points clear of Liverpool! There should be an inquest!

  8. King Eric says:

    One thing that hasn’t been mentioned is Dave’s save near post from Remy. Superb. I also noticed his upper body and shoulders look considerably bigger. The boy is bulking up.

  9. King Eric says:

    Fletch. Spot on mate with your comparison of best and worst in football.

  10. wayne says:

    Yeah the lad has tremendous reflexes,once he becomes more dominant he’ll be as good as it gets,just hope Utd got him young enough that he doesn’t fuck off on us when he becomes complete.
    It would be great if one of those two cunts didn’t make the top 4 they’ve polluted Football long enough.Its pretty funny FSW and Bobby Manc battle of the tossers both a couple of deluded cunts who actually think their quality.Legends in their own minds as Dirty Harry would say

  11. FletchTHEMAN says:

    King Eric, Cheers mate.

    What do do
    Watch The Oil Firm game, and feel dirty for 2 hours? . . . . hmm rather clean the cellar.
    Switch to the continent and see if the BeckCAM makes a siting of Fergies boot still stuck up Becx arse??? ….. ehm no, not bloody likely then. Pick up after the dog to be fair.

    Enjoy the day with the kids and check in on whether the Wembley grass can hold up for Bradford. Oh the humanity! But that tops the lot if I’m honest.

    Lucky me, I have reruns of Rafael’s goal going on the iPhone. Sorted!

    only negative in this clip is the last second with Robin down and clearly in a bit of bother. Glad the manager thinks it is just a bruise.

  12. wayne says:

    Don’t know if anyone else is like me most of us have issues whether it be personal or work,when Utd are having one of these seasons were things are falling into place its like therapy and any worries take second place.Last year I was wound up about the league to the very end,4-4 tie with Everton,bad tactics against City,this year a calmness that’s it’s over and the lads are beginning to play the most disciplined football of the season
    I re watched the Madrid game and although most cunts thought Utd would get destroyed played very well and should’ve won and although the analysis by some was Utd got dominated and played long ball that’s simply not true.Time of possession was very close and Madrid was reduced to a lot of low percentage shots
    Then Milan beating Barca just don’t see them winning 3-0 to go through its like the stars have aligned for Utd to take a good run at things.

  13. Cadelin says:

    On the Mankini “lucky” comments, I am not sure if it was Gary Player or Arnold Palmer who answered in response to being called lucky buthis quote was spot on. He said, its amazing that the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get.

    United are KNOWN for never giving up, CL Final vs Bayern did you see that one Mankini ??
    Sixth (or seventh) minute of extra time vs Wednesday, Bruce nets. Don’t you know your footballing history Mankini ?
    Sooner he gets the shove the better, he is an embarrassment.
    His interview mentions when we got the winner in extra time vs his mob and he claims we didnt deserve the win. He is the new Wenger and its only a matter of time before his Speccsavers sponsorship deal is announced.

  14. cleggster says:

    Cadelin….. Mankini don’t realise the last min winner at City came because Van was aiming for Nasri’s head
