    Wes Brown told SAF to F off on the coach during pre season when SAF asked a few players on the back of the coach to quiet down because they was drunk & rowdy, in Wes Brown Drunken Rage he told the gaffer to F**k off and he hasnt been played regularly since.

    remember when wes brown threatened to leave back in 2008, fergie obviously does so it’s come back to bit wes in the arse.

    @Tao. u think O’shea is shit?? did u watch de match, or is it peer pressure? go watch his performance against Birmingham.
    most of de players played poorly cos of Fergie’s persistent 433-just doesnt work. Anderson, individually was really poor; was he playin blindfolded?

    William the prune?

    @Woy Hodgson

    Is that really what happened?? Seriously mate??

  5. redbob says:

    Fergie usually does very well with defensive buys, so lets jump to midfield:
    Blomquist or Bellion?

  6. willierednut says:

    There’s more to it, than calling Fergie a cunt, in a joke.

  7. Woy Hodson says:

    i reckon its true because wes brown reportedly said it a while back and also apologized because he was drunk, plus no other stories have come out to contradict it or dissmiss it

    Can’t think of any 11 shit guys for us. So, since I’ve been here for over 2 years now, I’ll just post the shitiest first XI according to fellow reds. Keep in mind, some of them have turned it around in recent times, but the stick they got at times was hillarious to read.

    Foster – Neville, O’Shea, Evans – Nani, Anderson, Carrick, Gibson, Park – Berbatov, Welbeck

    Couldn’t think of a 4th defender, so we will play 3-5-2, lol.

  9. Legolas says:

    Why is it so easy for some of our fans to pick on O’shea??… I’m really puzzled cos he is so reliable n effective a backup; one of our smartest players. From psychology, i can tell dat de fans who are frustrated with Fergie’s actions tend to pick-on O’shea. If u scared to question Fergie den just stay mute.

  10. redbob says:

    This one wouldnt win a CL final at least.
    Fortune Blanc May
    Blomquist Veron Miller Djemba-Djemba Bellion

  11. smartalex says:

    That 3-5-2 would struggle, but individually only Foster is poor. Evans, Gibson and Welbeck have work to do before playing regularly for United.

  12. Legolas says:

    @Costas. Spot-on! but i think Fletcher has overtaken Nani dis season… u know, by popular demand! Hey! who is de captain?… will bet on Evans with Berba stripped off it.. Lol

  13. Red Typhoon says:

    For me the players for the modern day shittiest team would be,


    Blackmore, ………., …………, ………………,

    Djemba Djemba, Bellion, Gibson(c), Kleberson, Veron


    Pls fill in the blanks guys

  14. StScholesOfSalford says:

    Sell Gibson and get a proven player in midfield like Bebe!

  15. StScholesOfSalford says:

    @ Red Typhoon


    May Prunier Blanc Fortune

    Jordi Cruyff – Veron – Djemba Djemba – Gibson

    Bellion – Forlan

    You got that right mate…Freedom of speech!! We all support in our own way..and i don’t think u should even be disappointed?? let me tell you that i am only doing this on RoM..letting out my frustrations amongst our own. I watch games with my buddies a lot who are chelsea, and liverpool supporters..and i defend gibbo like u have no idea even if i hate to see him play….so..when i say stop being righteous…i know what i am talking about mate..allright!! It’s not about what you like or don’t like on RoM…its about us fans supporting our team in our own way…which in turn points to not receiving a comment about what we can say or not say just because it dissappoints u?? And to let you know..i did not think u were patronising me…just thought u were being a bit off course by saying something like that without knowing how i actually feel about supporting our club. That’s it. And i am sorry if i am not on your good man utd supporters list..your philosophy might be different and mine different..we are all on here for one cause..which is to support our beloved team and not to be told how we should support it.

  17. Red Typhoon says:


    Oh yeah..and good luck to you mate…i really hope gibbo proves me wrong and u can say….SEE, I TOLD U SO!! I stood by him and yeah…what do u fuckers know..!! I really hope the day comes when u can say that to me mate!! Coz.. i would be happy as fuck…it does not matter if i get screwed ten times over as long as the team improves and players play the way that they should be playing. After all…i support man utd and i will continue to put my point across if anyone plays, be prepared to be dissapointed somemore mate!! ;-)

  18. smartalex says:

    So with us losing the 1st half and winning the 2nd half, will the replay be at Old Trafford?

  19. KING ERIC BG says:

    @ Legolas:
    You’re absolutely right about O’Shea, he was actually the only one playing realtively well during the bad period. He was definetely trying to justify the armband, made runs forward, even tried to force his way into the area (Nani style). The defence overall did not so bad, it was the midfield that gave us the problems and when SAF assessed whats happening, he made his adjustments and we won…
