  1. United says:

    Why oh why did Gareth Bale not sign when Fergie told him he was being converted to a left winger all those years ago

  2. bigphil2003 says:

    Just saw a replay of Bebe’s goal, Berb’s reaction afterwards was disappointing to say the least. It might not have been his night but as one of the more experienced players he should be encouraging our younger ones like Bebe.

  3. Costas says:

    Heard Nani has a groin problem. Could be fit for Wolves.

  4. SmartAlex says:

    Great result, and a lot of positives.
    Especially that young players were well boosted.
    Now they should play a big role in the last 2 group games.

  5. willierednut says:

    Even if Spurs decide to sell Bale, it won’t be to us.

  6. in Sir Alex we trust says:


    yeah, Inter do have a big fat loser in their manager


    yeah, those bloodsucking Glazers! LUHG!

  7. MUFC WL105 says:

    Tonight was basically like a training game and we didnt need him to be at his best but Berbatov was awful all night. Straying offside needlessly, throwing his arms in the air and moaning to the other players all night. Since the hat trick against Liverpool he’s been getting worse every week. Looks like he’s slipping back into last seasons form again

  8. Legolas says:

    Bale is a bomb!… he took Inter defenders to de cleaners de whole time!… Maicon who?.. Modric is out of dis world!..
    Every seemingly bad thing will work for our good dis season… Bebe for Nani, Obertan for Giggs, Chica for Rooney, resurgence of Carrick, Park, Ando, etc.. and Eikrem finally getting a chance.
    God bless United!

  9. Moscow is my heaven says:

    Hate Rooney Love Bebe

  10. willierednut says:

    bigphill03 – I noticed his reation when Hernandez scored his second goal against Stoke, wasn’t at all happy seeing that. I hope he comes out of this slump he’sbeen in, because he was winning a few over this season.

  11. bchilds says:

    Looks like there’s nothing major wrong with Nani, taken off as a precaution thankfully.

  12. bchilds says:


    Ahh, Ferguson being right about potential YET again!

  13. Costas says:

    I don’t think that Berba is unhappy for his team mates. Just disappointed in himself. What I have noticed is that he usually plays with confidence when he is considered our top striker. Like the start of the season. Ever since Chicharito started banging them in, he seems to have lost some of that confidence. Like he is threatened.

  14. hurr says:


    My thoughts exactly. When the spotlight is on someone else, he somehow just fades into the background.

  15. willierednut says:

    He needs to realize, there’s no I in team.

  16. Abhishek says:

    Modric and Bale tailor made replacements for Giggs and scholes.. but they will cost us a bomb.,

  17. torontored says:

    Stroll in the park – they were knackered after 45 minutes. Still not sure on Obertain or Bebe both have feet that move faster than their brains, but would add they are getting better – Smalling is now a player, thouhgt he was decent tonight and his game has improved since the start of the campaign

    Rafael impresssed gets better every game – a few mistakes but he adds that attacking dimension – as to comments above about Bale tearing Inter apart – he did not tear Rafael apart.

    Berba again let himself down but part of that goes to playing him as a lone striker – just does’nt fit that position

    Bring on Wolves – we have a few players in reserve for that one.

    Just hope the vermin can steal at least a point from the rent boys on Sunday

  18. Costas says:

    I just hope we won’t revert to last year’s debates about Berbatov. He was one of our best players early in the season and much like other top United players, he is going through a bad patch now. If Berba has learned something from the last two seasons is that he must not allow this to go to his head.

  19. willierednut says:

    Always said Modric was a class act, now some are starting to realize what a top player he’s becoming. I think he still needs to add a few more goals to his game, but I’m sure that will come in time.

  20. Legolas says:

    Bchilds. yeah, Rooney is clueless
    Willie. Modric is so good he doesnt need to score many.. take Xavi for instance.. Scott Parker is unbelievably astounding! if anyone has noticed… can control perfectly, excellent surges upfront, creative, good n hard tackles…u name them. why is Barry in de english team wen he is not??.. baffling!

  21. parryheid says:


    What I find baffling is how did the biscuit Jammy Dodger get it’s name,the Jammy bit I understand.

  22. Vilhelm28 says:

    Judging from the last couple of games it seems like Carrick and Park are finding back to some kind of form. If it continues we will prosper greatly. Fun to see some new faces, but Bursa were terrible. Not sure what to say any longer about our striker – but I am guessing from what I saw yesterday and the apparent displeasure showed by Scholes on the field towards him, that SAF will have a sitdown anytime soon. Would not be surprised if Chica gets an extensive run in the first team – something is very wrong the the Bulgarian. If statements mde by Coata higher up are correct, with Barby having problems sharing the spotlight with other players and not handling the fact that he isnt the shit -well – welcome to the greatest club in the world, where world beaters are created every year.

    BTW – Scholes was magic – can anyone clone 5 more of him at a younger age?

    what a satisfying win!
