Glory Glory – Holy Trinity

In 2008, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of United’s first European Cup win, a statue of Denis Law, George Best and Sir Bobby Charlton was put up outside Old Trafford, our “Holy Trinity”.

Sir Bobby Charlton spend 17 seasons at United, scoring 259 goals (our highest ever goalscorer), and won three league titles, one FA Cup and the European Cup. He also won the Ballon d’Or in 1966. George Best spent 11 seasons at United, scoring 181 goals (our fifth highest goalscorer, and won two league titles and the European Cup. He also won the Ballon d’Or in 1968. Denis Law also spent 11 seasons at United, scoring 237 goals (our second highest ever goalscorer), and won two league titles and the European Cup. He also won the Ballon d’Or in 1964.

We have three “Glory Glory” t-shirts from Roundball United worth $29 to give away. Post a YouTube clip in the comments section below of your favourite goal scored by Denis Law, George Best or Sir Bobby Charlton. Please make sure that the e-mail address you post under is valid as some winners from the last competition didn’t reply to my e-mail asking for their address.

    It’s just one person under 2 (or maybe more) usernames mate. And as you can see, he has class. It’s just all low.

  2. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    FletchTheMan Sir Alex Ferguson has a place in New York, He goers there once a Summer for the last few years, I wouldn’t think much into this

  3. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Pep meeting w/ Fergie in NYC… Could it be more than an hunger for the Bagels ?

  4. FletchTHEMAN says:

    GottaHate. Great to see ya posting mate. Post more. The crap being slung around down on here needs to be diluted with a higher class of humor. ;)

    How’s that little doll of yours?


  5. jeet says:

    @Costas: Given that the same analogy to a cockroach has been made for Keith Richards, or Keef to us Stones fans, I take offence. A simple ccunt, with emphasis on the c and the u pronounced short, does just fine for me :)

  6. jeet says:

    And of course, nice to see you as ever, GHTT :)

  7. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    Fletch I’m good mate, Emily is world class and healthy, she’s getting ready to be a big sister. Hope alls well with you

  8. Costas says:

    I think I read somewhere that Fergie will retire in 2 years? If that’s the case, Pep probably isn’t the chosen one.


    Fair enough buddy. I just thought that the c word was a given when it came to him. I was trying to be original. :lol:

  9. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Gotta hate.

    Congratulations if I didn’t post it before. A Red home and growing!

    “Giggsy bombing down the wing” in 3 part harmony then?! CLASS!

    Expect Emily will be asking about the keys in a couple of years. My daughter is 14 and starting to ask about the shifters and gears.

    8O NIGHTMARE :lol: :lol: :lol:

  10. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    Fletch only telling my brother yesterday, Emily knows more about cars than I do, mad for driving, she understands how to do it her legs are just too short, loving the look of Van Persie as well so she is

  11. jeet says:

    GHTT – Congratulations!!!

    Though, if you don’t mind my saying so (pls treat it as a joke between the lads, and no offence intended), I’m damned if I know when couples get the time to make the second, with the first still bouncing around the place :lol:

    sky sports excerpts from Rooneys new book:

    Rooney eyes switch to midfield
    View Image >
    Wayne Rooney says he plans to switch to midfield once he loses his sharpness up front.
    The Manchester United striker is currently recovering from a thigh injury suffered against Fulham recently.
    And in his autobiography, currently being serialised in the Daily Mirror, he describes how his experiences of playing in midfield last season has given him food for thought with regards to his future career.
    Rooney enjoyed a handful of games in midfield during an injury crisis at United and the 26-year-old said: “I got more of the ball.
    “I was involved loads and, after one game, I was even thinking about playing there permanently, but only later in my career.
    “Once I feel that I haven’t got the sharpness needed to get away from defenders, I’ll probably drop back into midfield for a couple of seasons so I can still influence the game.”

    Let’s hope it will be a few more years……. after a dose of diet pills as well :lol:

  13. Gotta Hate Tiny Tears says:

    Geaorge Best Goal wasnt scored a a United player

  14. Costas says:

    Another GHTT offspring on the way. The red family is definitely in great hands. ;)

  15. FletchTHEMAN says:

    GHTT, That Goal of Georgies in the old MLS was nowhere near his best. Only thing is that his best were never caught on tape with enough clarity and angle to understand what was going on. I actually think it is a p*ss take to put that goal in with some of the others in those top 12 goal videos. He had so many others that were just out of this world. Law as well. Sort of pioneered the bicycle kick for the camera, though it was done for years before.

    Also expect the MLS lads were just happy to watch… . ;)

  16. Zibbie says:

    Dr Dread spot on with Jeet, he then pushes his agenda and then threatened me to tell the teacher on me for my views on Berba? Wow high and mighty shit!

  17. Zibbie says:

    GHTT nice to read you, best wishes.

    The big 3 wow.

    1968 are some of my 1st sport memories. Mexico City, the 1st Supper Bowl and the Cubs and Bears.

  18. Proverb says:

    Best Of Luck…Your Goal against Shitty will always be remembered from the deepest core of our heart….!!!

  19. Proverb says:

    @RealParkJiSung: I love international break… Pretty much just a week of Jäger-Bombs and fingering women.

    Probably a fake :D :P :-P

  20. TonyBee says:

    GHTT been a long time fella… Great news on the family extension

    Costas even you getting it in the neck from the child of Satan … Thought I had exclusive rights on that weasel… As for the trinity… Few years ago paid homage and went to OT soley to have photo took under the statue.
    Now I must say it really was magical watchings masters of their craft in action problem was just didn’t realise at the time

  21. TonyBee says:

    Costas…Wonder if Scott fancies doing RoM idiot poster of the year … Like a top ten wanker list. We could vote for each other :lol:

  22. Costas says:


    I think we would easily make the top 5. :lol: The Sachu cockroach would easily come first though.. ;)

    I also took my photo under the statue the one time I went to OT mate. One of the highlights of the trip.
