    United have landed – we’re the biggest club in the whole fucking world. Yeah, in an ideal world we wouldnt be over there, but we are, so we might as well go win it. Im acyually looking forward to the games now, especially after seeing these photos. Lets get it on…

  3. Redrose says:

    Are the games on the box in the UK, does anybody know ?

  4. KendalRed says:

    Games on Chennel 5 I think – which is unfortunate for me as I live in one of the parts of the country that can’t get Channel 5!

    Always the internet though!!

  5. Redrose says:

    Thanks KendalRed. I also live in furthermost reaches – in Cornwall, but can manage to get Five.

    Last week, I was up your way – decided to stay up north for the Blackburn, Sunderland & Aalborg games and between the last two, went to Cumbria and got stuck in ice coming east down from Hardknott Pass. Shame I didn’t bother to read the danger warning at the bottom of the Pass, as it was pretty hairy.

    Even the Japanese have gone out of their way to recognise the Portuguese-speaking contingent, haha!

    All we need is a goalie and a couple of centre-backs to complete the scene;


    RdS – CD — CD — FdS

    Ronaldo — Anderson — Possebon — Nani

    Brandao — Manucho

    The first game is on Channel 5 thurs morning which for those of us who work, a 10.45am kick off is not ideal! Looks like will be calling in sick.

  8. King Eric says:

    ps: they all look so happy to be there!

    Good day all you lucky sods. Isn’t life wonderful. You wake up every morning with a smile on your face because we are blessed. We are Red, we are United.

    Come on all you reds out in Japan. Get behind the Lads. Lets Win it. God I want us to bring it home. World Club Champions goes very well with Manchester United the World’s Greatest Club. Has a wonderful ring to it.

    Funny how they are made to wear those micky mouse ties. They are all lavishly paid, they should be allowed to wear their own suit and tie.

    MJ…?????????????? hello. this isnt a jaunt on the beach with your pals…hence wear what you like…shorts and slippers and yours mama best t shirt. You’re representing the biggest best most amzing most professional club in the world. And for that you wear the clubs official uniform and crest. NOT guys wearing what they feel like, hence one guys wears his silky pants, next man wears his chains, next man his armani suit, next man his burtons best, next man his peck showing t shirt, next man showing his chest hairs. Club Uniform laddy.

    And as for the CWC…a trophy is a trophy. a chance to be named and crowned WORLD CHAMPIONS. So SAF dont take it lightly ala the super cup. Dont give another team the chance to mock us going up to lift the trophy. Lets win it for our pride cabinet and confidence. C’mon lads lets do it…winning breeds winning. And it would give us such a shot in the arm for the prem and clge….SO C’MON….PLAY THE STRONGEST TEAM AND BRING THE TROPHY HOME. DONT WANA BE DISAPPOINTED ALA THE SUPER CUP

    Suhayl, read over my post again. I said they should be able to wear there own suit and tie. Last time I checked that is hardly beach wear. Look at the suits again, they look cheesy and cheap. They look like something a security guard would wear, not a multi-million pound professional.
