PICTURE: Lee Sharpe Is Green and Gold

Lee Sharpe has joined the green and gold campaign to be part of fans’ bid to to get rid of the Glazers. Unlike David Beckham, who denied all understanding of what the colours represented after wearing the scarf after our Champions League game against AC Milan last season, Sharpe is happy to put his name behind the campaign.

“I am absolutely delighted to lend my support to such a worthwhile cause – I am committed to wanting to see every MUST Green and Gold shirt sold, and I will personally be handing the £25,000 cheque over to The Prostate Cancer Charity,” he said. “I can’t believe the quality of the shirts, they’re much better than the ones I used to wear. I’d urge all Manchester United fans to support this superb project and I look forward to presenting the charity with their cheque at some point in the near future.”

All profits go to The Prostate Cancer Charity.

    Whats Chris Foys record like for us,does anyone know where to check ?

  2. smartalex says:

    Still no team sheet? Fuck. it’s taking forever.

  3. Dave Malaysia says:

    smartalex,what if hargreaves palys today?

  4. smartalex says:

    For a few quid, tiny tears will give torres a guided tour of all the G-spots at chelsea fc.

  5. MG says:

    Manchester United is red

    That’s all I know and believe in

    As for Lee Sharpe – he had so much potential it was scary and then he scared himself and well that was the end of that

    Legend? No chance…

  6. MG says:

    Still United though after going around the merry go around ;)

  7. Dave Malaysia says:

    @MG: Choices right? the choices he made as compared to Giggs. ;)

  8. smartalex says:

    If Hargreaves plays today, and plays well, the odds on United winning the 19th will be slashed. There could be no better return than Owen Hargreaves, surely.

  9. MG says:

    Choices it is Dave Malaysia

    You are either humble enough to make the right ones or foolish enough to make the wrong ones…

    Lee Sharpe easily fits in the latter much like most United players who think dreams can be accomplished somewhere else

    Left because of his England place

    That didn’t go well then did it?

    Well, if we’re playing silly buggers, I hope Keano can make it tomorrow.

  11. wayne says:

    this move could be more about trying to make himself relevant than it is to do with the green and gold.

  12. Dave Malaysia says:

    I for one am praying for the Manchester United spirit to be awaken today.

    High tempo ,hard battling,no quarter given,and slick moves and an incredible scoreline for a brilliant win By Manchester United.

    All season we have grinded out results,today go forth Rooney ,Javier ,Fletcher,Vidic AND THE TEAM , win this battle.

  13. smartalex says:

    Is there a goon bashing thread? No visitors from the yellow bellies?
    Fear has frozen their ‘submit my comment’ buttons.

    You stretch the frozen moments with your fear.
    And you’ll never hear their voices
    And you’ll never see their faces
    You have no recourse to the law anymore.

  14. Dave Malaysia says:

    6.50 am,me go sleep ,dream of good tidings for Manchester United.

    Absolutely loved Sharpey, one of my all time favourites, and it pains me to be the cynic but is it just me who thinks some of this is about boosting his profile? Seems a top bloke but donning the scummy white kit then all the reality bollocks means sadly i find it hard to view him in the same light

  16. King Eric says:

    He doesn’t even mention the green and gold does he? Its about the cancer charity. Although he played for leedscum and did all that abi titmuss love island shite I like lee sharpe. Always loved him as a player. Sounds fruity but he always had decent hairdos or so it seemed back then. Lads liked him and ladies fancied him. Anyway enough of that shit. He was a top player and had decent games as a left back but as a winger he was sound. Pacey. Trickery and chipped in with a few goals. Remember his double against everton and the elvis celebration with the corner flag. Always seemed to score against everton. His hat trick against the gooners in the blue kit. Just a shame he liked the nightlife too much but he catergorically denies he ever took drugs. A rumour which was rife.

  17. King Eric says:

    My mistake. He does mention the g and g but I still think its more to do with him and the charity. Fair play to him.

  18. hammons says:

    did he do the shuffle with it on?

  19. Welbz19 says:

    Alongside Ole my favourite United player ever, always played the game with a smile on his face, he looked liked he was enjoying what he was doing. The first hero I had as a United Fan

  20. FULLARD says:

    God I love Sharpey, one of the best personalities we’ve ever had at this club.

    If he’d have spent most of his time at any other club then he would have been remembered as one of the best wingers this country has seen.
    But alas we have a horrible habit of seeing great players overshadowed by even greater players and therefore not getting the credit they deserve.

    smartalex says:
    The closest Torres ever came to finding any G spot, is when he squeezed Gerard’s zits in the shower.

    fucking classic….you are a one liner king Smart alex…….

  22. SalfordianAbroad says:

    Great bloke!

  23. smartalex says:

    Thanks TonyBee! Of course, any reference to torres is good for a laugh!

  24. micheldu9 says:

    yer gonna cry like nani the and gold you sad sad people .get a life .go and support your local football clubs.plastic retards.

  25. wayne says:

    with utd being a global entity the green and gold will never rate in regards to putting a dent in the the bottomline financially the impact is miniscule.having lee sharpe as a spokesman is truly jumping the shark

  26. Clem says:

    Dunno why I bother posting here. Too cliquey and because of that, no one joins in any discussions with anyone else other than the regulars. It’s a bit too middle school playground for my liking. Time to move on I think

  27. Paul Parker says:

    Good to see Lee Sharpe back with a United shirt and a smile on his face.
    Quality Player.
