Nani: United Is A Fantastic Club

Echoing the sentiments of team mate Antonio Valencia, Nani has revealed he is pleased Manchester United have signed Ashley Young because he will improve the team.

“Of course I have to welcome everyone they sign, I think Man United is a fantastic club,” said Nani. “When they bring in new players, they know if it is good for the team or not, and this (Young signing) has to help them. It is good for the team, we want more (players) to help us to win trophies.”

    Kings @ 16:30: “any subsequent posts you send to me is out of pure obsession for me.”

    You’re flattering yourself. BUT I’ll try to honour your request to ignore you – from now on.

  3. Rai says:

    TonyBee – Even Roy Keane would pull out of a tackle with this man. Semi – pro MMA, has his own Facebook account…things don’t look good for the Clique

    Good evening Rai!

    You have my absolute respect sir. You are deep, and true, and for that I thank you.

    Scott the Red’s main failing is that he simply ignores problems, and comments made to him.
    Then, when eventually he deigns to attend an issue that has been frustrating and angering people for a long time, it is done without explanation or apology. In fact, most times he hasn’t resolved the issue, it has resolved itself. In this common instance he receives undue praise, yet fails to indicate that the issue has not been solved, but still exists.

    There is absolutely no doubt that Scott the Red sits in his Ivory Tower and scorns us all.

    What other conclusion can be drawn?

    Is he too busy to respond to emails, comments, racism, hatred for United, and poisonous comments that are designed to destroy harmony here? No, he is not too busy. That is made abundantly clear on every thread where he asks us to vote for him, and floods us with advertising.

    His precious RoM will not survive unless he:

    - Stops fostering Racism
    - Prevents vile slander against Sir Alex, the players, and United in general.
    - Realises that he is equal to each and every one of us.
    - Treats us with a modicum of respect, honesty and transparency.

    No one wants to increase his workload. All we want is a little respect.

    RoM is probably the most anti-United blog on the internet. Without exception.
    It is simply the best place to show hatred for our great club.

    The Sun, and News of the World, and RoM. They are the best place to go if you hate United.
    They deliberately foster hatred, in order to increase revenue.

    I am not here for the articles. I am here to be among United supporters and true Reds.
    Now that RoM is over-run with those who hate United, I am no longer the happy browser who always clicks on an advert on each thread to show my support. Instead, I always leave sad and angry, simply slamming the page shut on my way out.

    smartalex – An absolute belting post my friend. Hope you are well buddy?

  6. smartalex says:

    I am very well Kings, thank you! And how are you doing, my true Red friend?
    Healthy, happy and pleased about de Gea, I hope.

  7. Kings says:

    smartalex – I’m good thanks my true red friend or should I say one of my elite trusted lieutenants?

    Yeah extremely pleased with the De Gea signing mate. He ticks all the right boxes. Although he was largely redundant in the tournament, he still played his part when called upon His kicking and distribution is top notch. Potentially 20 years of service from the lad.

  8. smartalex says:


    de Gea has the potential to be the best keeper in the world. He seems more likely than any other young keeper to excel. United has a tremendous track record for developing young stars into world-beaters. All the signs indicate that Sir Alex has gathered the best young defense imaginable, and that our long term future at the top is secured.

    The fact that de Gea is assured and skilled with his feet is the main immediate benefit, as our defenders are used to absolutely trusting Edwin Van der Sar.

    Exciting times indeed, come on United!

  9. Rai says:

    Smartalex – have to agree with Kings your post was top drawer – glad there’s a few people who don’t shy away from the truths no matter how unpopular they are in general.

    Pleased with the new signing although I’m going on the last few months only. Until the speculation started I didn’t really get to see much of him but I took an interest in the latter stages of the season….looks a very assured keep for his age. His ability is undoubted – I hope his mentali toughness can withstand the high expectations…..really pleased we’re spending the money on youth signings too…Fergie is building for the long term good of the club and not just the next season or two…

    What the fuck are yous doing on here??? The parties on Facebook!!!! Get your asses on there pronto!!!!

  11. CedarsDevil says:

    Rai the soon to be parent, how are you my friend?

  12. CedarsDevil says:

    Willie :mrgreen:

    Personally I am scared to go there

  13. willierednut says:

    Don’t worry Cedars, I’ve got your back! :mrgreen:

  14. Rai says:

    Cedars – I’m very well my friend. I’m sure you guys would like to know our good friend King Eric is also going to experience fatherhood on December – his partner is expecting too!!!!!

    Congratulations King Eric – we know you don’t like a fuss but everyone will be very happy for you mate!

  15. CedarsDevil says:

    Willie – Never trust an Irish man ‘having my back’ you would probably pick my pocket and piss off :-)

    Rai – Thanks for sharing that news, seems that another RED is coming to this world

  16. Rai says:

    Yes mate and a passionate little Red they will be too o can imagine. Been an eventful day on the ROM today…I wonder what tomorrow will bring….maybe a MSN messenger war

  17. CedarsDevil says:


    The guns are loaded and ready, I will no longer take a step back…. Hell will be unleashed

  18. smartalex says:

    That’s great news about KE’s expectations Rai! We need all the true Reds we can get!

    I’m running on-line face-plant courses for any one afraid of DeFaceBookWarrior.

  19. Costas says:

    For the record, 12 hours have passed and still no sign from the alpha male on my twitter account. I guess stalking isn’t fun when you get caught. This subject is officially over with the pussy showing his true colours.

  20. smartalex says:

    Thanks for the update Costas!

    ps We must stop all this mindless waffling to each other. Day after day we address each other and interact non-stop, leaving everyone else out. It’s selfish.

  21. Costas says:


    True that mate. We are so selfish for interacting with each other and leaving everyone else out. It’s not like me and King Eric started talking with you this season whereas we’ve known each other since 2008. Oh wait…

  22. King Eric says:

    Rai. Ha. I see you sneaked it in! Thanks mate.

    Cedars and smartalex. Thanks very much lads. Much appreciated.

    Right back to bed. Goodnight lads.

  23. GG says:

    Can we pls stop all this fighting. we are here to support our club not banter about nonsense

  24. kel says:

    Actually you all misses something. When the reporter ask him “will you leave this summer since young has join?” Nani point to the reporter shirt with United logo and replied “I will stay for this.”

    AWESOME!!! Moreover he is in Singapore for holiday. =)
