    The press is now pipping United to be the final resting place for the Hodgsons sorry plight at Antfields.
    Don’t have much to complain about Roy, sorry he ever left Fulham for that lot. It will be over soon Roy!

    I for one am sure they are still dangerous and we should always defend our turf. Hope Liverpool stay dead for this one, but feel they always can bring a game to OT. Red Nev should give the pregame talk, that should do the trick.

  2. Joel says:

    It won’t be an easy game, they always raise their game against us. Liverpool have 2 cup finals left in their season, the first is this weekend and the second is when we play them at Anfield.

  3. Mickjk says:

    What about this lass diarra fella. If Its true he wants to leave the Harlem globe trotters sign that boy up. Our midfield needs that sort and he’d fit right in with his premier league experience. None of this transitional period you usually get with January signings. What’s the thoughts on that?

    Sorry for my absence guys …

    @siralex: I hope Liverpool goes for an American … talk about setting them back 50 more years! Honestly, though, I do not think that there is any coach here able to handle that pressure … the only one that could even be considered is Bruce Arena. Bob Bradley is a very good coach for American soccer, but I do not think he could cut in the Premier League, but, with that said, do not rule him out to replace Houlier at Villa. He was already linked with a move there this summer, and Lerner is looking to make another move.

    Speaking of managers ….

    Is Ferguson Pondering A Facelift For United?

  5. fergie is the boss says:

    why is anyone even responding to that troll delano. Yea shitty arsenal and spurs really have put the fear into teams all through this season, what did bale do against everton who seems to be hyped has the next CR7. Yea still back chelsea who seem to get worse every week, united are not playing well BUT WHO THE FUCK IS. And for the record shitty and chelsea have to go to OT, and united have only dropped 2 pts at OT

    Someone should send a doctor over to our deluded friends over at merseyside. When the fractions of their bitter and delusional imagination starts to get the better of them and they make up stories like this to cover the dark and lonely place that is reality you just know it isn’t going to end well.

    Couldn’t help but laugh yesterday…

    Commentator: City and Spurs are the deepest squads in the EPL

    5 minutes later, Bale goes down and here comes Niko Krancjar

    hi guys…

    let me project the good “day” into good future

    Even if Gary, Giggs and Scholes retire now, we will be good. Actually, even if we play with our League Cup team, we can still win the league this season. The young squad we have today in my opinion is better than the class of ’92.

    Macheda, our fifth striker, is far better than Ngog, Liverpool’s third striker. Now just compare Macheda with Chelsea’s erm… Daniel Sturridge? LOL. Arsenal’s Bendtner?? LOL.. and we still even have Welbeck and Mame Diouf. Dont you guys find this scary? Sir Alex’s planning is scary…

    Just imagine how good our League Cup team can be if they are given a run of games? De Laet, Smalling, Pogba, Obertan.. Our young players ARE ready for action actually, it is just a matter of opportunity to get a run of play. Sir Alex already have faith and trust in them, but we just have too many players better than these very good players.

  9. Corea says:

    Fergie, please sign Hargo, sign him up! :( argh

  10. MyCowIsTheBest says:

    who thinks i am deluded to think we can win the league with this line-up as our starting line-up?


    sub: Lindergaard, Obertan, Park, Macheda, Evans, De Laet, Gibson
    One thing is, i think Fabio is almost as good as Evra actually, but Evra is just too consistent and healthy plus young so Fabio wont get a chance at LB in three years time. I believe Fabio will be too good not to play him next season… feel sad thinking about this..

    even with this line-up which i believe, takes a quarter of a season to mature and we can still finish at least top three

    haha i am deluded.. what to say.. i am just a big believer in Sir Alex’s words, “Our cows are better”

  11. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Not diluded mate. Agree that it is very important to think about depth. Especially worrying if both Neville and Brown go as the depth in the back 4 is potentially suspect. Can Rio do an entire season without injury. Is Kuz staying or going. What is up with Evans….
    Think we will be needing at least one central defender unless Richie DeLaet comes in strong. So great that Smallings is coming on well. Now we need to get Evans back to the fold. Need to answer the Kuz question as well. Not concerned really. I am always excited to see who shows up and makes their mark each year. Always hoping for some pleasant surprises. Always positive about our prospects.

  12. Written Offside says:

    What a perfect night for United.

    Did a blog piece about this very subject earlier –

    Love R_o_M – essential reading

  13. hammons says:

    @passe: that is from the BBC …. consider the source!

  14. Dave Malaysia says:

    I repeated in here this season Fergie will decide on many careers as he rebuilds.

    Vidic,Carrick,Park,Nani,Anderson have all made a case to be part of that team.

    Both Owens ,Wes,Sheasy are among those who are still not doing enough.

    Rio seems to be on track.

    The Ogden peice is talking the same talk but his conclusions on who goes looks like a broad swoosh.

    Well soon enough we will find out.Another 6 months,we will know .

    Wonder if its going to be 4-4-2 or 4-5-1 for us this weekend.
    It will determined one midfeilder or one striker missing out.

  15. MyCowIsTheBest says:

    @Fletch thank you. I think there are only a handful of fans like me who dont wish we buy anybody this January, and next summer also perhaps. haha.

    i want to see how many disagrees with me and thinks i’m deluded haha.

    @Dave Malaysia hey have you received emails? let’s watch this sunday game together at Bukit Bintang?

  16. Dave Malaysia says:

    @MyCows: @Fletch is right ur not deluded. But i think ur over optimistic, some of those

    players still need time. But glad u see the brilliant picture developing. Dosent it make u feel excited?

    I have said before United made the decision to expand our youth structure and not go down the route of kamikaze spending .

    Fergie said the next 8 years are good refering to the detailed planning they have implemented.

    I beleive we may see history made when about 15 to 18 players make it into the first team.


    @MyCow: Havent received any email from u,got some from @Always be closing=Adam Haliwel.
    He is in Changkat Tongshin ,have u heard from him?
    I get the info on my shift work today friday ,then i will know if i will be working sunday.

  17. Diablo says:

    The Woy MUST STAY CAMPAIGN” is in full swing,if we put the Twats out on Sunday I may turn to Religion,the Bastards deserve to get battered again with Chico on the rampage,lets see if their Runt of a Captain does his camera trick again, lets send the Filth down the Eastlancs with OUR songs ringing in their ears, see yu there!

  18. fergie is the boss says:

    MyCowIsTheBest – fabio evans and smalling for different reasons I worry about their positional sence they are not ready this season, anderson and fletcher I just do not think has the right balance and mix that scholes and carrick have had. The three of fabio evans and smalling are miles behind the now experienced rafeal, and the priceless duo of ferdinand and vidic. We could say united are a little thin at the back beyond ferdinand and vidic.

  19. Saad says:

    Love it

  20. YorYor says:

    And one damn red card gets rescinded. Not that it boosts their hopes much the way I see it. Just would like to be able to see them tumble down back into the EL spots.
