    Is there anywhere you can get that picture in paint of Scholes winner against Barca above? I would love that for my little boys room.

    Brilliant, the best night I have ever witnessed at Old Trafford and that is not a swweping statement. For anyone there that night will testify at how special that was.

    neville has no eyes

  5. Costas says:

    The 2nd pic is making me gay.

  6. SirAlex'sSon says:

    Really nice stuffs.
    Here’s a possible mosaic that’ll be exibited at his testimonial:

  7. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    The second pic makes it more sexual than it actually was. :lol:

    Anyways nice stuff from the entrants. Much above my skill levels with Paint.

  8. willierednut says:

    He’s alive!

  9. Whiteside says:

    The Fly: handy when you’re kissing Scholesy! (-:

  10. willierednut says:

    Costas – James is on the prowl mate. Wouldn’t even joke like that lol.

  11. kanchelskis says:

    Hmm… both are blatantly photos that have been run through some kind of digital manipulation, rather than having been done in Paint from scratch.


  12. Giggsy's Lawyer says:

    Agree with Kanchelskis – definitely the first one anyway

  13. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    @kanchelskis, While I can argue that the first photo looks manipulated because I did not know you could get that kind of detail in paint, the second one seems legit mate. Any one of us could come up with something like that in paint, the faces don’t even have passing resemblances to their real life counterparts. Anyways, that is just what I felt when I saw both of them.

  14. kanchelskis says:

    @Giggsy’s Lawyer

    Yeh, I’m having doubts about the second one now. Could just be v good Paint skills. But first is a rip for sure.

  15. Giggsy's Lawyer says:

    Actually the second one too – look at the patches / number on Scholes shirt. Not saying I could do any better, and I appreciate these for what they are, but I would have loved to have seen someone do something on a blank canvas creating it 100% their self!

  16. kanchelskis says:

    Giggsy’s Lawyer

    I’ve compared the second one with photos, and I think the main composition is done from scratch, as body positions are slightly different. I think the PL patches on the sleeves may have been ripped though.

  17. Giggsy's Lawyer says:

    its a rough outline trace AFTER the images have been copied. I overlaid them both:

    I had nothing better to do sat at work LOL

  18. kanchelskis says:

    @Giggsy’s Lawyer

    Busted! Scott should rescind the runners-up prize!

    Rooney said: “When you’re at a club like Man United you pretty much know what the goals are. We want to win the league, the Champions League and both the cups.”

    So which one of u guys found STR and brought him back? Maybe it was @willierednut, he knew about STR getting his chest waxed.

    I’d go for the first pic.

    Just share this with u guys:

    1) Over here in Malaysia, our FA had to apologise to chelski over some anti-semitic abuse aimed at
    yossi bennayoun.

    2) This hamman guy,FIFA jackass. Several years ago, our club was invited to join our 50th
    Independence celebrations. Manutd were celebrating 50 years in Europe. It made sense.
    Ham the Jackass ,stepped in and told our country no such thing and if we went ahead he wud
    initiated action against us, including bans from Asian competition.
    Why u ask?

    The country was thinking of a football galore time ,top clubs and competition. We had an asian
    tournament taking place and wanted to add to that.

    Ham the jackass said during and for a period before and after that competition there will be no other promotions or games. All the focus will be on that particular tournament. And it was in the contract our FA signed with the AFC.

    So our government and public said , ok we understand but cud u make an exception, it is after all our 50th Independence celebrations.

    No way he said and to add to the shit we found out about his demands to our country ,since we donated and helped the AFC build its HQ in Kuala Lumpur . Now he wants diplomatic status and immunity and all kinds of perks.

    So we ask, ru going to murder someone? or u thot we wud help u the arab prince have a princely life in KL?

    Not to mention our stupid FA being screwups.

    David Gill had to come down with our club legal rep and discuss with our FA. Gill decided that since Sepp blatter (then close buddy of ham the jackass) had also threathen United with sanctions, we agreed not to participate.

    Man, even the non United supporters felt pissed off. That is until chelski (very close to hamman,rumors of money changing hands) was allowed to play in malaysia after the asian tournament, they said it was ok.fuck shit.

    So ,next was the AFC elections. Another Arab prince from another gulf state,decided to challenge hamman the jackass.

    Guess what jackass did? With sepp blatter complicit he got that country banned ,meaning cannot stand for or vote during the election. So he won,easy. First thing he did he reinstated that gulf country back into the AFC.

    Then he made a mistake. Power hungry he took on the Grandfarther Jackass Sepp Blatter .
    The rest of the story u guys know. Both of them accusing each other of corruption .
    The typical pot calling the kettle black and both were buddies in the process.

    I despise Fifa ,AFC, and our FA. stupid corrupt good for nothing jackasses.

    Well,thats my sharing ,ramblings for today, hope u dont mind.

  21. King Eric says:

    Giggs12Gerrard0 – Hello mate. An absolutely blinding night that. The anxiety in the last 15 minutes was insane. When OT is like that there is no better atmosphere in European football. How old are you pal ? Just wondered when you said you had a little boy. Thought you would be late twenties early thirties? just being nosy. Found out at 20 week scan on Tuesday my wife is having a BOY! Well pleased. My old dear has already ordered him a United shirt.

  22. King Eric says:

    Massively off topic and for that I apologise but has anyone been watching Dynamo’s show? Fuck me. That shit is insane. Saw him about 4 years ago at an Ian Brown gig in Manchester. He was on tour with Ian. Unbelievable stuff.

  23. willierednut says:

    Yes Dave, it was me! He was about to get a manicure, when I walked in and said yo! The masses need a thread asap! :lol:

  24. sayyidhashim says:

    both pics are fake and not drawn. It’s totally unfair on people like me who genuinely tried to draw a pic

    is there a way for me to upload my pic so you guys can see it?

  25. Dave Malaysia says:

    Well,one more sharing though.

    Its been an interesting start to a busy week for Manutd.

    Our kids lost the milk cup final to aspire ,routed actually.

    our u-15 got hammered by fenerbarche,then recovered to draw against pachua,today won against hanover.
    we meet bangkok christian collegeat 14.30 pm. Hammered but recovered,hopefully all the way to the final.

    Our so called XI got hammered in Monaco bringing smiles all round to other supporters,cos the result is being flashed all over the place as Manchester United XI beated 8-2.

    Good draw for our u-13s in VDS testimonial. His son Joe and Rene Muleesteen son Melle played for us. Wins in the other 2 games.

    What will happen for Scholes testimonial? One good thing is tickets are sold out.Brilliant.

    Then the game on Sunday. The most expensive team around ,with toure boast about what they goin to do flashed all round the world. Over here its the main topic on the back pages few days ago.

    For me ,we need to win, like we did against chelski,get it done, win at wembley over our bitter rivals.
    Wembley needs to be a good ground for us,has not been last season in cup competition,we need to set it right.

    Some how I dont know why I just calm,not so worried. :lol:

  26. kanchelskis says:


    Stick it on twitpic, or lockerz, or imageshack, or photobucket, etc etc

  27. sayyidhashim says:

    here you go guys

    this is a proper paint job

  28. Dave Malaysia says:

    @willierednut as @smartalex said u got him by his short and curlies: u must have tugged hard cos he came back with a burst of articles.

    @King Eric : Congrats and good luck on yr baby. U must be happy the king is back at old trafford.

    @sayyidhashim: selamat berpuasa. and do as @kanchelskis said.

  29. Jeet says:

    @Willie: It took him an awful lot of time to get his chest waxed…kinda reminds me of Austin shagadelic Powers

    STR – didn’t know you were such a sexy gorilla!

  30. willierednut says:

    Jeet – Groovy! :)

  31. giggs12gerrard0 says:

    @King Eric,

    First and foremost congratulations pal i remember our 20 week scan and finding out I was having a boy. I was over the moon and my litle boy sports his United kit with Giggs11 on the back, he is 16 months old.

    I am 30 mate, how about yourself I often have debates with my old man about era’s and when we were better etc, he thinks 68 but I have always maintained 99 was far better. Barca that night though in 2008 is without a doubt my best ever home game at Old Trafford.

  32. smartalex says:


    Great graphic! You will have to correct the ball flight as the curve has been inverted.

    Do that, and the t-shirt will sell!

  33. King Eric says:

    Dave – Thanks mate.

    Giggs 12 – I am 36 mate. I actually like the 94 side! Ninety nine though for sheer guts and determination and will to win. How old is your boy?

  34. King Eric says:

    Giggs12 – Sorry pal, how rude of me. Thanks alot.

  35. King Eric says:

    Sorry mate, 16 months old, you have said!

  36. giggs12gerrard0 says:

    @King Eric

    Rkid always says 92/94 as well with kanchelskis and Giggs interchanging delight.

    My little boy was actually born on derby day last year when Scholes scored the winner, you can imagine the delight of rkid when i rang him to say he could have my ticket say in the United end at wastelands as the missus had gone into labour!

  37. giggs12gerrard0 says:

    to add she has always been selfish like that, whats one more day when you have waited 9 months!

  38. RedMegleeker says:

    Was Scholseys hand not lower?

  39. Fred says:

    These are both great! Congratulations, guys! :)

  40. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Very tender moment. Ahem!!!
    Still, the Barca goal was better and would have been my choice for the winner!

  41. King Eric says:

    sauyiddism – Ha. Like the picture mate!

  42. King Eric says:

    sayyidhashim – Sorry about the spelling of your name pal.

  43. Salford's Cantona says:

    this is great
