ARGENTINA! Anderson and co. Embarrassed

ARGENTINA! surprisingly battered Brazil in today’s semi-final at the Olympics, meaning they will not go on to play Nigeria in Saturday’s final for the gold medal. The referee was taking no prisoners, sending off two frustrated Brazilian’s for challenges that would usually see just a yellow card in the Premiership. However, there were no complaints [...]

Liverpool’s Torres Is The Kid, Rio Is The Man

Fernando Torres, nicknamed ‘El Nino’, had a very impressive debut season in the Premiership, scoring 24 league goals for Liverpool. The player who United have been linked with on numerous occasions but instead joined compatriot Rafa Benitez with the dippers. Whilst having his way against most Premiership defences, Torres was rendered absolutely worthless in both [...]

The Perfect Captain – Chelsea’s Terry Better Than Rio?

John Terry’s appointment as England captain has got me thinking about what a ‘good captain’ should be. The man who famously dropped David Beckham, before realising the errors of his ways (albeit, too late) and lost his job because of it, has made yet another controversial decision on awarding the captaincy to Terry. Of all [...]

He Hates Scousers

It was only when I watched Match of the Day that evening that I saw Gary Neville’s celebration following Rio Ferdinand’s injury time winner. Like Neville and every other Manchester United fan, I had gone absolutely mental, so missed his thigh slapping and badge holding. Of course, like every other time the two clubs meets, [...]

Do You Want Rio For England Captain?

Do You Want Rio For England Captain?

Perfect timing for an International friendly eh? England take on the Czech Republic days after the Premiership season kicked off, in a pointless match at the new Wembley stadium. Training is under way and it’s a case of ‘same old England’. “I can guarantee we have 23 men who are ready to run through brick [...]

Silvestre To City? Bite Sparky’s Hand Off!

Following the booing Manchester City fans dished out to their team last week, as well as news that owner Thaksin Shinawatra had warrants out for his arrest, the 4-2 battering Aston Villa dished out them confirmed the misery for the bluenoses and Mark Hughes yesterday. However down you might get over United, you should always [...]

More Goals Please? Embarrassing

I got to Old Trafford earlier than usual yesterday, hoping that there might be some sort of ceremony to celebrate the wonderful season we’ve just enjoyed. Whilst the friendly against Juve was billed as the trophy celebration, I was sure they’d let the home crowd on the first day of the season share in the [...]

More Sponsorship Dosh For United

Ahead of kick-off yesterday, as well as the handing out of the Reserve team awards for Danny Welbeck and Richard Eckersley, another United ‘partner’ was announced. Saudi Telecom will now be handing over more money than any other sponsor, apart from AIG, who get their logo on our shirts (and taxis all over town!), with [...]

Glory glory Man United – Any wonder we have glory fans?

Glory glory Man United – Any wonder we have glory fans?

The sun was shining as we left Old Trafford yesterday, but the usual chants of us being Champions that have filled the tunnels under the ground upon exit were missing. We weren’t a happy bunch of fans. Walking out under the Sir Matt Busby statue, the two opposing sets of fans began to mingle. The [...]

Berbatov Mardy Like Cantona

Dimitar Berbatov is keen to finally get a move through to Manchester United, two years after rushing a deal with Tottenham Hotspur rather than wait around for United. After the Premier League couldn’t find enough to charge United with tapping up from Daniel Levy’s evidence, the press seem pretty certain a deal will go through [...]

United Rubbish Without Ronaldo

…and Carlos Tevez, Owen Hargreaves, Nani, Anderson, Gary Neville, Louis Saha, Ji-Sung Park and Michael Carrick (for 65 minutes). You can imagine those names will be forgotten when the necessity for a striker is reported in tomorrows press, particularly in light of the result at Stamford Bridge. We weren’t at the races today. As soon [...]

Chants: Much Better Than Ji-Hai

Park Ji-Sung’s song has been the most popular in Old Trafford for some time, as any funny chant taking the piss out of the scousers will be. Now, I won’t be able to compete with the popular songs already going for him, but can we improve on his already successful chant?

Chants: The Brazilian Nevilles

With the season starting today, at RoM we decided to see if we could get some new chants going at OT, whether they’re brand new stupid ones created on here, or chants doing the rounds in the pubs but not making it in to full voice at the ground. The first subject for chants is [...]
