    Devastating without the need to be lethal.Great day at the office.

    To add to my points in the first half:

    * Anderson’s long range passing was also pretty fucking good. We’ve already seen his link up play with Tom in recent games but the way he picked out our wide men today with some passes was pretty telling. It definitely looks like Scholesy’s retirement has broken his shackles and he has become a complete mid-fielder. And he’s still only 23.

    * Ryan Giggs – what a substitute to bring on when you are 4-0 up. His pass to Nani for Rooney’s hat-trick goal was something else. The dude’s 38 man. What the fuck does he smoke everyday? Will somebody please tell me?

    * Troy, I wasn’t being diplomatic at all. You have to use softer words when a player was bad and you’re making him out to be good. But I was making an honest observation. Don’t put me in the same bracket as Carrick bashers. Carrick is a completely different player from Tom and that was what I highlighted.

    * De Gea’s passing is something out of this world. Not much has been made of it so far because everybody wants him to fail, but his long ball to release Hernandez which forced a mistake out of Jaaskeleinen was the best of the lot. He is gaining his complete confidence back and has another clean sheet to his name. The lad’s a keeper as someone pointed out the other day.

    * We’ve scored 47 goals in total including pre-season. If this was Barcelona, the world will be wanking at our every touch. Fuck them. The main thing I want from this season is for us to get our top goalscorer record back. We lost it Chelsea the season before last and I fucking want it back. Somebody should highlight that to Sir Alex if he doesn’t know already.

    What a fucking performance from the lads again! As I said, we’re in some form right now. AVB will be shitting his pants in preparation for next week.

    If this continue, wayne boy will keep all the balls after the match…

  7. Saad says:

    I’m yet to find something that Phil Jones cannot do!

    “The boy’s a genius!”

  8. RedManWalking says:

    De Gea hands in transfer request.

    De Gea, 20, when asked the reason for this decision had to say this – “I like United. Big club with big history and traditions. But, I don’t get to see ball. It is always in front with strikers. If it comes to this side, Jones clears it. I don’t like standing simply.”

  9. Troy says:

    What, we only scored five. Not fucking good enough, this is relegation form. We have to spend 200million in the next transfer window.

  10. RedDevil4Lyfe says:

    Fuck this – even tho this is a great victory im gutted about cleverley. So pissed of that the fucking mother fucking bitch cunt shit scuking whore davies dint get sent off. i was hoping we raped Bolton and ripped them a new asshole for that and put 10 past them. but sadly dint happen.

    Hope clevs comes back soon

  11. RedManWalking says:

    @Balaji – Maybe its because he doesn’t smoke :D

  12. Clint-iamyourpapii says:

    I think it was a pass intended for anyone to throw themselves at which is why it was powerful and dragged.

    Great performance, De Gea was solid and made a monster save :D Townsend will be distraught he wont have anything to chuck at David after making bitchy comments according to you lot and Youtube clips.

    De Gea, Jones, Evra was stand out attackers :lol:

  13. Saad says:

    The Manchester Rule is still in effect:

    “Whatever City do, United can do better…and sexier!”

  14. Costas says:

    The Cleverley injury ruins it for me to a degree. There’s nothing worst than a youngster getting injured just when he’s getting his big break.

    I hope it’s not anything too serious. I read on twitter that he fears he might have broken his foot. Or to be exact, the thug broke it. Hopefully it’s an injury similar to Wayne’s at Munich and he’ll be back in 4-6 weeks.

  15. RedManWalking says:

    Cleverley says he might have broken his foot. More details after scan! Kevin Davies rot in hell!

  16. Sandeep1878 says:

    i have developed a habit of making a peg for each of our goal..

    OMG, if we keep scoring like this then very soon i will have more alcohol in my body than blood :P

    please can anybody update me on TOM AND EVANS?

    i hope they will be back soon..

    Welbeck’s injury hurt me, hope TOM wont be out, i want him against Benfica..

    SIR RYAN GIGGS…what a fucking ball to ROONEY…

    good to see the cunt steve McMahon praising our young lads after the game, fuck him anyway..

  17. Sandeep1878 says:

    @ Balaji…top post at 17:25…

    VALENCIA BERBA FLETCH yet to make a start or get game time..

    fucking crazy…

    PHIL JONES.. i dont think he is 19, impossible

    hope evra is okay,

    the last thing i want is defense ravaged with injuries like the 09 season..

  18. RedDevil4Lyfe says:

    Sandeep so far we just saw on twitter that Clevs said he thinks he broke his foot and will let us know after the scans are done.

    I wonder how many of us tweeted him

  19. Zibbie says:

    1878, weeks ago it was debated, he is 25.

  20. Collar of Cantona says:

    wazza and chicha were just ruthless! the new schoolboys! :D

  21. Troy says:

    … actually I am a Carrick basher, though I don’t go to lengths like those Gibson twitter bashers went to.

    Chelsea next. Damn, they must be shitting themselves

  22. Sandeep1878 says:

    @ RedDevil4Life…

    broken foot? its horrible if its true :( fuck it

    @ Zibbie..

    soon we will have to change that 25 :P

  23. The truth says:

    Just want to echo/ add to everything thats been said. That boy Jones is phenomenal, surprised with his dribbling and pace tbh. Great performance by the whole team. Evra was excellent going forward, he has been getting a lot of slack lately, but whenever the armband is on he seems to perform MUCH better than usual, which in itself is a scary thought. Rooney and Chico. Best partnership or what? Would have liked to see Chico get a hattrick as well, but not going to complain too much. 5 goals away from home is fantastic enough.

    Funny how Nani and Young are alternating in terms of their impact. Each game one of them manages to get all the assists etc. Today was Nanis day. He played exceptionally well. I was so impressed with his tracking back and natural dribbling ability. He is a born star. Just needs to improve his consistency.

    I was laughing when I looked at our bench and the players on the stands. They all have to try to beat this first lot to try and get games. At the moment, that seems like an impossible task. The competition for places this year is bloody intense. May the best 11 win. :)

    Only downside was Cleverely getting injured. That Davies scum doesnt know when to stop. The tackle was dangerous and totally uncalled for. He get away without a yellow card even, UGH. I do hope TC makes a quick recovery.

    Ohhh happy days. :)

    Roll on Benfica and those chavs.

    The new way to count 1,2,3,4, bolton, 6, 7, arsenal, 9, 10

  25. Sandeep1878 says:


    damn funny that new way of counting..

    good one mate

  26. RedDevil4Lyfe says:

    don’t think Chelsea are really shitting themselves as much i wish they were. They have a solid strong team and they will certainly not fear this Utd side. The biggest test for our team will be against Chelsea and hopefully UTD will prevail!!

  27. Cyril Sneer says:

    If anyone wants some more post-match entertainment, here’s the latest adventure from Agent of Fergie:

  28. Dave Mack says:

    RedManWalking …. Truth is DeGea had most saves in the league today …8! Two were outstanding and three others very good. He was constanly involved and his distribution was excellent.

    Not a complaint (cause this young side just looks to go forward all the time!) but will welcome Vida back to tighten things up at the back.

  29. RedManWalking says:

    @Dave Mack – Ya, stats wise, De Gea did make 8 saves. But, as I mentioned earlier, Bolton were just passing the ball to him to increase shots on goal at one point. No complaints against the lad. He made 2 class saves today I think and his distribution, like you said, was amazing. I was just taking piss out of the fact that the way United are playing now, De Gea almost has nothing to do. Our attack and defense are amazing! Great times ahead…

    Sad about Cleverley though. Hope the lad is alright.

  30. Champions 19 says:

    I think De Gea was brillsnt 2day plus young was very poor on 2day game played very well I also think Jones was good 2day jones ran back 2 defence all day and try 2 attack 2 great littlepea best player on the pitch was rooney plus will the utd boss bring on beroatov or he will go 2 a new club in Jan? And will the arseal boss still get the sack or quit?

  31. LexxythenigerianRed says:

    Glad for the win, a bit dissappointed for Cleverley. Hope he comes back stronger, Davies should be banned and let us give him hell when next he comes to O.T the donkey.

  32. Mancunian says:

    Fuck you kevin davis. someone should burn his house

  33. bruce thomas says:

    Can I just add that Kevin davies is a CUNT.
