    what a lifestyle these boys have. Your not shite michael don’t listen to him!!! Not that you even remotely care because i personally wouldn’t give a hoot about what some knob on some blog has to say, particularly if i was at the Canadian gran prix. Talk about supporting and backing up your own. Should be ashamed squish!!!

  7. MarcTheNigerianManc says:

    @squishthemick. If he’s shite then you’re a cunt…slaggin off a united player is not acceptable!…

  8. 'GINGER PELE' says:

  9. Homez says:

    This blog has been invaded by retards who I can only assume r scouse bastards…..

  10. Ryan says:

    Dear Haters , please watch a Manchester United game. Carrick did fine/great in most of them.

  11. scan74 says:

    Homez i agree mate said a few weeks back need a tidy up getting a bit bored of this great site but the some of the fuckin shite spouted recently is just a lot of bollocks and spoiling things mate

  12. Homez says:

    @Scan74….totally agree, I rarely post here but I enjoy reading the threads, until recently, don’t know wht we can do to get rid of these leeches?

  13. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Michael has been a great servant to the club. Played out of position, Including playing CM during our record breaking run 2 years ago when our entire back line seemed to be injured. A pin point passer of the ball and a true attacking mid when we got him, changed into a mop up defender because he could be retasked when lesser players could not. His sense of positioning second to none on the current squad. Don’t think we will ever see the transition player we would all love to see, but I think he is a true red. Glad to have him, and looking forward to many more games were fans credit michael for the class player he is.

  14. Doghouse says:

    Carrick is a footballers footballer, he is appreciated and rated by footballers and by those who understand the game. He is not a morons footballer, he will never be appreciated by those with an IQ in double digits. He will never attracted the kudos from the baying mob (remember the guys who cheered for Tevez), but he’s shown he doesn’t need that. He does great work in midfield and wins us trophies, can’t argue with that.

    Carrick is like a component in an engine. If you understand engines, you will know his role and you will know that without him the engine functions badly or not at all. If you don’t know engines then you won’t understand what he’s for, why he’s needed and so on.

    In short, anybody who has a low opinion of Carrick ought to just stop expressing their opinions until they have learned about the game.

  15. Costas says:

    Some of the Carrick hating cunts have to be Shity fans. United have won 4 league titles in the 5 years he’s been here and he’s played the most games for the club in that time. Do the math idiots.

  16. Fred says:

    Have a great time, Carrick. :)

  17. Lexxy says:

    Looks like the jones transfer has fallen through. Would have prefered Rodwell so no sweat

  18. AK says:

    not a regular poster here, only post when i need to make a point. i’ve been watching united for years and i can tell you that we are a far worse team when carrick is not in the lineup. many fans tend to look at the attacking presence of players especially midfielders. but most of carrick’s influence is on the defensive side of the game. the amount of interceptions and him tracking back to cover fullbacks has probably prevented at least 20 goals from being scored against us this season. vidic and ferdy are two of the greatest defenders in the game, but carrick facilitates so much for them. both vidic and ferdinand have praised him this season. fergie, vidic and the rest of the squad know carrick’s value to the team, and that’s all that matters.

  19. King Eric says:

    Costas. Spot on mate. And people wonder why regulars are leaving this blog in their droves. With cunts like that Carbangprick about. Why the fuck does he only comment on Carrick threads? Its disgusting and cunts like him are an embarrassment to Man United. Fuck off.

  20. Stenis says:

    He’s a great central midfielder. Was absolutely terrific in the second half of last season and key in us bringing down Chelsea three times. More of the same, please!

  21. King Eric says:

    Doghouse scan homez ak etc. Bang on lads.

    Lexxy. Where have you heard that? Nonsense. Also why rodwell an average midfielder who cannot get in everton side over Jones who looks a right player and kept us out single handedly at Ewood?

  22. Gary says:

    If I hear one more person comparing a footballer or football team with an engine in person I will kill them. Some people have been listening to Andy Gray too much. “Only in third gear” what? Fuck off!

  23. Ash says:

    This blog is no longer the same.In past there were only 2 or 3 maximum who were like WUM and even they were knowledgeable but now you see there are more than 50% people who are shit.

  24. sachu says:

    I WANT TO SAY ONE THING VERY SOFTLY

    MICHAEL CARRICK IS AMANCHESTER UNITED PLAYER
    ALL THOSE WHO ABUSE HIM ARE CUNT BASTARDS
    IF WE START ABUSING OUR PLAYERS THEN FOR GODS SAKE GO AND SUPPORT ANOTHER TEAM
    HE IS PLAYED ALMOST EVERY EUROPEAN GAME IN THE LAST FEW YEARS
    AND IF HE IS NOT GOOD THEN WHY DOES SIR ALEX START HIM

    ALL THOSE SO CALLED TRUE REDS WHO SUPPORT ONLY THE SKILLFUL PLAYERS SHOULD REMEMBER THAT PLAYERS LIKE CARRICK EVANS GIBSON HAVE GIVEN THERE HEART AND SOUL WEN THEY HAVE PUT ON THE SHIRT
    AND TO THOSE MOTHERFUCKING BASTARDS WHO ABUSED GIBSON ON TWITTER WELL GO AND FUCK YOUR MOM

  25. leaxan says:

    o my god..3 of the first 5 comments are against carrick..am i reading the republic of mancunia???
    cant believe u guys man..u dont sound like u support united

  26. Clint-IamYourPapii says:

    This place sadly has become home to sad fuckers.

    Thank you Carrick for Those great performances in our toughest time of the season.

  27. Aadescholes says:

    Love Carrick and every United player..Whoever hates go and fuck off glory hunters

  28. SirAlex'sSon says:

    Who are all these retard fuckers bashing Carrick, i so much wish you all get ass fucked in your sleep tonight. Thats how angry i am with them all! The lad ended the season on a fine note, and can’t be singled out for what happened at wembly.

    Have fun on your vacation, Carrick, you deserve it and more…

  29. Leave says:

    I like Michael Carrick. We owe him a lot

    Having said that, why do you let some of the opinions on here get to you’ll? just cause they have opinions, doesn’t make them right. STR owns the blog and decides what to post. The rest of us lap it up and get through the day. The blog is open to all and they can write whatever they want just like any other blog in the world. Who put us all in charge for a blog we do not own?

  30. SirAlex'sSon says:

    Well said @ papii

  31. Notey90 says:

    I dnt think I wil ever 4get that accurate crossfield to Giggsy which Wazza buried in Cech’s net. Me love da handsome guy.

  32. mike579 says:

    Hey im there too

  33. Mr Santos says:

    Carrick is quality but his wife/girlfriend is even better! Saw her after the Blackpool game! <3

  34. squishthemick says:

    Glad to see most people defending carrick and you are right I shouldnt be criticising united players.

    Point taken.

    But I think its fairly accurate to say most united fans believe we need 2 central midfield players. If thats the case, where does carrick fit into the team?

  35. Utree says:

    I have supported united all my life but unlike ppl on this blog i can take of my rose tinted glasses everynow and again. Carrick isnt a bad player but we need someone better and i think deep down we all do….

  36. rohan19 says:

    @ costas : point taken… comment backtracked..

    @carrick bashers : he’s a positional midfielder.. and he does his job effectively..
    every mid can be a sneijder.. we need a carrick to complement the AM’s

    @ carBANGrick : you are a deluded teen.. rather than keeping a name showing your support to the club we love… you chose to bash a player? how very royal.. you deserve to be a scouse jerk (im suspecting you already are) only they can be so dimwitted….

    @all : which ship has never docked at liverpool???

    The premieSHIP

  37. Passmaster16 says:

    Carrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrick…!!

    Ma man!! :D

  38. BerbaGod says:

    Some people have got no class. Michael Carrick is an integral part of this Manchester United team and the quicker you see that, the better. Do you think Sir Alex would’ve given him a contract extension if you think he wasn’t good enough?!

  39. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    @Ash and Clint,

    I have been to a lot of forums and I have been part of communities built from the ground up like King Eric, Kings, Costas, Willie, smartalex, Cedars, Ash, Rai, GHTT, Giles etc. have been and the one thing I can guarantee – Once a blog/forum reaches a certain level of popularity, there is no way you can stop trolls, idiots, cunts, bastards etc. from coming in droves. There will always be an always be an air of inevitability to it.

    Another thing, Scott has the most difficult job of all – Producing content. As a blogger myself, producing content for people to talk about is the most difficult thing for anybody to do. And Scott’s consistency in this regard is so amazing and unthinkable that none of us can even begin to complain about him not acting against the dicks and cunts that show up. He simply has too much in his hands.

    If regulars and pioneers of ROM like you guys are going to be turned off by that, then sadly Scott will have failed and you would’ve handed ROM over to dicks like them. Over the years, I’ve seen many bypasses to control the spread of virus from invitational forum systems to not advertising our community to an extent that we become widespread etc. None of them has ever succeeded in completely stopping idiots from showing up.

    Bottomline: Regulars have to stay and fight for the harmony of ROM until Scott finds the time to come up with a solution. If you guys don’t do that, prepare for the worst and the idiots will have succeeded. Ignorance is Bliss. The best thing for us to do is ignore them and get on with our usual interesting discussions.

    Peace – From a newcomer over the past few months who has really enjoyed the warmth of this place.

    This is a blog and to be honest i think all the old time bloggers on here should leave . If anybody trys to get there point of veiw over that does not fit with that small group they get shot down . You have all said we need two world class midfield player WHY so one can sit on the ruddy bench or becaus we all now that carrick is not that good.

  41. King Eric says:

    pendrol – Who the fuck are you to tell all the old bloggers to leave? Piss Off. It’s them that make this blog not fucking JCL’s.

  42. Kings says:

    pendrol – You should be a comedian.

  43. rohan19 says:

    pendrol- crazy fuck.. these old guys are quite knowledgeable tbh abd their posts give us great insight…
    you deserve to be on big brother… yes you’re that bad
