VDS: People Asking Will I Do A Scholes

Following Paul Scholes’ return from retirement and Manchester United’s issues settling in a new number one goalkeeper, Edwin Van der Sar has revealed people have been asking whether he has any plans on doing the same.

“I got a few text messages from friends saying, ‘What about you?’,” Van der Sar said. “I’m quite happy at the moment. There’s no doubt in my mind. I was at Carrington and he was watching a training session and I said, ‘So, how do you like it?’. He said, ‘Not really. I miss it’. He was still there doing his work as an assistant coach with the reserve team so it was probably a little bit easier to get back in.”

  3. iced earth says:

    i am watching ath bilbao game they have some intersting player
    the most impressive player is Muniain
    javi martinez also looked good
    i think martinez or javi garcia of benfica would be great addition to our cm, and also will help de gea a lot having local lad alongside him

    I think Paddy should shake hands with the racist but in a way that represents he is the bigger man despite Suarez & Liverpool’s lack of class towards him.

    Patrice has nothing to hide or be ashamed of. Its Suarez who should feel awkward and unconfortable being plus he should be the one who should be getting death threats and boo’d all around England.

    I hope Paddy Does this to Suarez:
    Anything less and Paddy needs to get his priorities in order. (Please check out the video link.)


  5. JC says:

    He should shake his hand as long as Suarez is willing to offer him a direct apology even if its in private, otherwise ignore him.

    Cedars. Evening my friend. Yep will have a word. On James’s phone bill of course! Hope you are well.

    Fletch. Hello mate. Casillas? God how on earth is he in front on Edwin? Good keeper but over rated imo. Massively over rated. Just like Valdez.

    Clint. Hey up you headcase! I agree. Edwin for me just shades it. Especially in the modern game. Need good feet now and he was like a third centre back as someone said. Back in Petes day we could counter more as teams didn’t park the bus so one huge throw out and we would score. Loved Pete but Edwin was more suited to the modern game. A top geezer too.

    Boogeyman. Now then pal. Ha. Shit hair though! You metro sexual. Nowt wrong with that my friend.

    Just heard fifteen min interview with Micky Phelan and for those morons who slate him he has much more of an input than you think. Offered a great insight into being fergies assistant.

    Talking of Clevz just seen footage of training and he is looking sharp. Never mind his barnet I think he has a big head and little body! Gonna be a star though.

    Seems Durham on talkshit reads this blog and my post on “scotty“ parker. Said it annoys him. Its fucking Scott. Allegedly there is a campaign for him to be Ingerlund captain. Good god. Put yourself about a bit despite having NO passing range or technical ability whatsoever and you are Captain of country material. Gotta laugh at Ingerlund in particular some of the other candidates. Barry? Fuck me. Some idiotic cunts even said Parker could play for any team in Europe. You could not make this up. Don’t get me wrong as a bloke Parker seems a good lad but if he was THAT good how come only Spurs and Stoke wanted him? A very limited player. Darren fat dancer Gough was waxing about Busquets. Saying what a player and has seen him play right back,left back, right and left wing for Barca. Funny that Daz because I fucking haven’t. This from the man who two year ago said Arshavin was better than Messi. I kid you not. What a fucking idiot. The funny thing is Ingerlund could have done with Carrick but oh no he aint a blood and thunder player. The fact he is composed, can control pace of a game and has a great football brain accounts for fuck all. These media mugs are just thick cunts.

    Ey Yoo, King Eric in the cyber building.

    Finally someone that agrees with me about Edwin.
    I like “Scotty” Parker but he’s your typical labourer. A midfield of him and Carrick would be a decent combo.
    I too rate Sergio Biscuits very highly.He’s crap everywhere but at midfield, he is an absolute genius mate. Just like Carrick he has great movement and great awareness of his surroundings. Biscuits is a lot of bad things but not a bad footballer. When Carrick retires in 4-5 years, Busquets would be a suitable like for like replacement, the cunt can also pick a pass which is nice.

    Nuff bout that slimy git now eh! Sure, hate the knob too.
    Arshavin is better than Messi imo, he can play Stoke,Blackburn, Bolton doubt Messi will even turn up.

    :lol: Someone asked me once “who would you pick Park, Rooney or Messi?”

    I said Park, no one sells shirts in Asia like he does.
    I actually said “Will Messi chase cunts around & play good for 270 mins?” No Would Rooney? “Perhaps, but would probably get done by the FA for Hardwork”

    So Parks the lad you want ! He’s like a Dog on Viagra chasing a cat with a bone between the buttcheeks.

  8. FletchTHEMAN says:

    @Iced RE Cleverely: I would love to see him come back if fit, but prefer to take it really really slow. To many injuries get made worse by bringing lads back to quick. Alan Smith, Hargo, Fletcher, Giggs(years ago).
    I wouldn’t mind seeing him get a run out with the reserves like we did for Gibbo a few months ago. I think there is a reserves game Thursday. Maybe then we will get a look. Agree?

  9. FletchTHEMAN says:

    KingEric, Feel your pain mate. How Cech rates above EVS and even Oli Kahn is a mystery that we will have to take to our graves.

  10. WillieRedNut says:

    Edwin was very good, but big Pete was something else. No one better in my life time. God knows how points he saved United.

  11. Sandeep1878 says:

    Pappi and cedars,

    ballsdeep eh? :) Lol,

    No offence mates, dont worry :)

  12. theboogeyman says:

    Giggs12- Haha good one. I still have a little bit of faith in Anderson, he’s yet to properly prove me right. Another one with shocking hair!

    Utd4life- But then we only have 1 up front, and I prefer we have Danny and Rooney.

    King Eric- Have you seen his head? It’s a mess! And yeah, most girls I know think I’m metro sexual, it isn’t a big deal lol. Darren Gough. He was a cricketer, wasn’t he? What the fuck does he know about football? He was shit at cricket too.

  13. lordrt says:

    I wish he would consider instead joining the training staff, and help in strengthening the career of the likes of DDG and Amos at the club

  14. CedarsDevil says:

    King Eric

    Morning my good friend….. The call will actually be my treat! I am so envious pal, what I would have given just to be there for the day and this match in particular. Anyway, I hope you fellas have a good one coupled with a home win.

    Really great to see the RoM posse growing

    “It was a really good save obviously,” enthused Ben Amos to “That’s De Gea’s strength in my eyes. He’s light and quick and maybe he knows Mata from the Spain Under-21 days because if you look closely, David takes a couple of steps that way before Mata hits the ball so maybe he’s seen that before and anticipated it. It was a brave move but it paid dividends.”

    “People often think that if you go with the top hand it’s the wrong one but you can get a couple more inches if you turn your whole body. It looks a bit awkward but you can actually get a little bit extra reach, believe it or not.”

  16. smartalex says:

    On another ex-player, O’Shea after his eight straight games in the centre of defense:

    “He is doing very, very well,” said O’Neill. “Of course we are going to concede goals but we’ve done very well in that aspect recently (Sunderland have conceded just three since O’Shea began his run of games in the centre).”

    “He and Wes Brown have been really terrific. They’ve tried to help the younger players, maybe it’s because of their upbringing. O’Shea’s whole demeanour around the place has been very helpful indeed. I’m delighted he’s started to play the way he did for Manchester United. John has done very well at centre-half, but I’m not sure what the answer would be if I asked him what position he prefers. At this moment needs must.”

    O’Shea’s situation was further complicated because his wife Yvonne gave birth to their first child in July, and he appears to have become something of a father figure at work as well as home.

    “His willingness to help the younger lads is very important, they can approach him,” O’Neill noted. “There are no airs and graces about him. He’s been very helpful in the dressing room.”
