  2. Devil310 says:

  3. Vidic says:

    City hahaha

  4. JC says:

    So far so good, RM – MC … MU – Braga

  5. Reds Galore says:

    What most people dont understand is that Sir Alex has always helped players ply their trade elsewhere by not demanding astronomical transfer fees.He realises that once a player is no longer in his plans,best thing is help them join another.You all complaining that Berb has been sold for a paltry fee need to take this into account.However those who whinge in public cue kusczak always learn it the hard way

  6. Reds Galore says:

    Lady luck has shone upon us lads.Not that we cant beat Madrid but its just one of the tough teams you want to avoid.

  7. DreadedRed says:

    I won ” The 500 Great Goals Collection” in a RoM competition held in April this year.

    Thanks Scott the Red, and my fellow entrants. Luv ya!

    The compilation is excellent. 5 dvds, each about an hour long. Goals from every League, and interviews from greats such as Sir Bobby on George Best and Alfredo Di Stefano. A tremendous selection of goals, all the famous ones, and many which I had not seen as they occurred in a lower league.

    As I live on a dusty road in Africa, I think the postage might have cost Scott a lot more than expected, but they duly arrived. I was pleased as punch, and still am!

    ps If you want to borrow them, I’ll post them to you; on the condition that you do the same.

  8. fergie is the boss says:

    Zibbie – it remains to be seen if the debt will be clear at that time, as I am not convinced we will be debt free at that time

  9. Vidic says:

  14. Redriderch says:

    Iniesta absolutely deserves that award!-hell pf a midfielder!-srry ronnie!

  15. Jesmonta - Malta says:

    we had the chance of getting Moussa Dambele from Fulham in a Player plus cash agreement , and we lost it. we needed that kind of player.

  16. Jesmonta - Malta says:

    last year we had an easy draw as well, and we made a mess of it. Hope we get better results this season. Even SAF is aware of this.

  17. Norman-85 says:

    The first, second and fourth goals here (fourth probably edges it for me):

    and just as a bonus – the guy was the greatest centre forward I have seen in my time (since 1974) – enjoy:

    Dear RoM readers:

    Please forgive my blasphemy, but if I have to choose my favorite Champions League goal other than one scored by MUFC, then I submit the following (the first goal scored in this clip), because of its significance to the match, and for what transpired thereafter…

    Again, please accept my deepest apologies…

  19. jordyco says:
