    Morning all


    You should hang your head in shame pal, picking on the homeless street kids, always doubted if you were a United fan to begin with to be honest! ha ha ha

    Lucan is in the house baby, fuck yeah

  2. CedarsDevil says:

    Err I meant Cedars is in the house! ops

  3. CedarsDevil says:

    Another thing, why the fuck has StR banned Zibbie from here? Fucking weird shit been going on here of late

  4. lordrt says:

    Looks like Utd could have to pay for around 4M more if they want to sign Moura, as his club is looking to increase the profit on his sale
    RvP still wants to quit, may be Cedars can convince him to join if Berba is to leave soon ;)

  5. CedarsDevil says:


    Doing the best I can mate, its work in progress!

  6. Sandeep1878 says:

    Lol at Giggsy12,

    by the way,

    who the fuck is Belaji? :P

  7. CedarsDevil says:

    Scott the Red

    Out of mere courtesy it would be nice if you came out and explained why the fuck you banned Zibbie from here whilst at the same time you allow racist bigots to keep posting? Just asking

    Bobby Manc has given an interview , in which he states brining in 2 additional players will bring Cithe on the same level as RM and Barca . No mention of us ,Juve etc . Love the mind games and optomism . Personally hope the blue ballon is running out of air .

  9. Sandeep1878 says:

    60 days have made me older,

    since the ladt time i saw our pretty team playing,

    a thousands transfer gossips have made sicker,

    and i dont think i can loo at this the same like Sneidjer gate,

    and all these miles that seperate,

    disappear now when i m dreaming of my team playing tomorrow in Rainbow nation,

    I m here without you Baby United,

    but you are still on my lonely mind and heart,

    I think about baby (United)

    and i dream about you all the time,

    you are still with me baby (United),

    and tonight and from now on, its only you, ROM and me



    3 DOORS DOWN – remix :P

  10. Sandeep1878 says:


    you remember a coupla days ago, i mentioned about Zibbie talking about david Villa and shit,

    thats unlike him,

    his account was hacked,

    that’s the reason Scotty mate blociked him, which will temporarily i think..

  11. CedarsDevil says:


    That is no excuse, Scott should have blocked the hacker……My username was hacked about two years ago and Scott took action, should have done the same thing if that is the case…….Other wise he has made a mistake

  12. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Great news at the presser. Vidic and Smalling coming along. Vidic might be ready for Everton.

    Kagawa to start tomorrow behind Chicharito. Brilliant news!!!

  13. FletchTHEMAN says:

    SAF looks to try Robbie Brady at RB for the preseason. Hmmm.

  14. CedarsDevil says:

    Kagawa and Hernandez in the same 11, dear God, pleasure of good looks over load!! ha ha

  15. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Sorry at LB Brady might back up Evra. Cheers

  16. Costas says:

    Cheers Fletch. Evans will be out for a bit longer than those two and that’s a bit sad. HOpefully he will be ready for the games after the international break in September.

    As for Brady, haven’t see him in action but as I understand, we will do a Richardson with him and convert him from a left winger to a left back. Something tells me the Baines thing isn’t happening. I am willing to live with that if the money intended for him goes to a CM, but really, say Evra picks up an injury. Is Brady supposed to deputise for him? What if we have a game at City or Chelsea? Same for Blackett. Not doubting that they are talented boys, but it’s too soon for them.

  17. samuel - united WE stand says:

    If Giggs12 doesn’t rate a player or not as highly then he reserves the right to express. He’s a great contributor around here. Debates can be had without flinging abuse.

    Personally, i neither rate nor think bebe is completely useless. I’m in the middle, i’m willing to see bebe given another opportunity to fix his reputation. All i know is, the scouts must have seen something in him that is tempting enough to gamble on. Yeah, FERGIE didn’t watch him personally but isn’t that why he has trusted scouts?.

    I’ll form a conclusion after bebe has been given his own fair opportunities like anyone else. It’s been two years since his awful display, some improvements must be showing in his game surely?.

    Let’s be honest, since the day bebe signed, the amateur media bastards have been on to him. The daily-fail made it a personal agenda, they dug into his personal and private life like cunts with no class. They goaded and mocked the idea of a player coming from his background and then some how making it as clearly, that would expose england as having a lot of spoilt bastards who had everything their own way. They harassed and pursued a player probably suffering from a low in confidence. It’s pathetic and sad.

    When united signed bebe, it was clear that he’d need more coaching to refine his rawness, he needed more than enough time. Why some had or have expectations of him is baffling. He wasn’t bought to be an instant hit, perhaps he has improved in training after the injury lay off. We’ll never know until he gets on the pitch.

    After a season or more and if he still hasn’t shown much improvements, FERGIE will find him a club to continue but for now, he should be given an opportunity.

  18. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Fletch – squares in round holes again. Brady is a winger, he should be utilised in that role in order to impress. United have tyler blackett, if we aren’t going to use him then what’s the point of taking him?. He’s tremendously talented and even at his age, he could fight for a place with evra. I remember rafael making his debut at that age or thereabouts and now, he’s a regular.

    Of course i’m not expecting wonders from tyler or the other younger players but they should get chances to show what they can do.

  19. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    Sandy, LOL! My name has been twisted so much on here that even I don’t know what it is. I remember Dave suggesting a list of twisted names that I could use. Maybe I should get started with that. :lol:

  20. james21 says:

    Its getting stupid on here. Giggs12 is one of the best posters on here, far better than some of the shit that comes on here.
    There’s lots of shit going on in the world with people dying in places like Syria and starving around the world without high and mighty holier than thou football fans jumping down posters throats all the time.
    FFS get a fucking life.
    Rant Over.

  21. mancdub says:

    Giggs12 is one of the best posters on here but he never buys the big issue. :)

  22. james21 says:


  23. Sandeep1878 says:


    lets hope he will fix this asap.


    mate, i m a bit surprised with your LB comment, i believe Brady is a winger..


  24. WillieRedNut says:

    Oh dear God! You have a differnt opinion to someone and it means you hate street kids? What a moron. Sorry fella, but you are.

  25. Sandeep1878 says:


    cheers mate :)

  26. WillieRedNut says:

    JC – Yeah, Diouf’s scored a few goals over there, but far from making it just yet. Also, I can only judge what he’s done at United. He looked a decent player. Maybe not United quality though. As I said in a previous post, these lads aren’t bad players. There’s different pressures at our club, than at other clubs. A certain level of performance is expected. Better players at United makes it tough for anyone breaking through. As for Obertan? Same applies. He had his moments in a Red shirt. Early promise soon faded. Let me say this though, the likes of Obertan, diouf and Bebe are worth a punt by United, just in case they are the real deal. Not like the club paid huge sums for them. In the off chance you get another Ronaldo, it is worth taking a risk. No risk, no reward…

    Shinji looks so like kagawa

  28. nesh says:


    Shinji looks so like Park in this photo i meant

  29. Giggs12Gerrard0 says:

    Samuel / Jimbob / Mancdub

    Lads dont worry im all good my emotional rant is over! Cheers for the comments.

    Right off to go and abuse some homeless kids


  30. Giggs12Gerrard0 says:

    Knock Knock

    Whos there

    Not Bebe he is homeless

  31. United Till I Die says:

    Im not saying he’ll be a world beater – im not even saying he’s destined to make it at United. All im saying is the appraisal of Bebe is disproportionate to reality, but it IS proportionate to the bollocks written in the press about him.

    - make sense?

    And before anybody has a heart attack wasn’t that long ago Evans was labelled a dud and mistake by wise old journo’s and their flock of sheep-in-United-clothing.

    Some haven’t been good enough and we’re all entitled to our opinions, but don’t expect to insult a United player on RoM without incident just because “everybody knows” he’s shit. No we fucking don’t.

    I remember when “everybody knew” Ronaldo was too shit for our famous shirt and look how that turned out. Now Ronaldo’s “too good” for our Club because he’s the best player in the fucking world and we can’t afford him.

    When he was a skinny kid doing step overs what made half of you think you knew better than Fergie?

    End of the day the most important opinion is the Manager’s, and on this issue Bebe has been selected to go on Tour. Thats where we are now fellas, so how about supporting ALL our players on pre-season and keeping your Schadenfruade in check? At least till after the Tour ffs….

    You lot haven’t seen Bebe kick a ball in over a year but you’re all convinced he’s no good and stands no chance? If you honestly can’t see how blinkered and redundant that sounds how about just enjoying the fucking Tour and supporting EVERYBODY selected by Sir Ferguson?

    Is this some kinda fucking foreign concept or sommat?

    Bravo,Utd Till I Die!Minus the swearing,U took the words right outta ma mouth with ur post at 14.35!

  34. Giggs12Gerrard0 says:

    United till I die

    Are you inept at disseminating information. There is a big fucking difference between not rating a player and supporting him. I will support who ever wears the shirt but I won’t wax lyrical about someone on here because it upsets the wankfest.

    I will say what I fucking want about about a player, I debated but come on swearing and belittling my opinion does fuck all to change my mind.

    I never boo a player and never have a go at one at a game but on a blog I will say what I like.

    Also how is it because I don’t rate one player I all of a sudden despise Evans and Carrick. I’m as passionate as they come pal read the posts in context. You can say all you want about Bebe and the press I make my mind up on watching him in games. Live games I may add. I watch the first team and the ressies live so feel very comfortable in my assessment. Disagree all you like but put it context and Debate you don’t need to be a dick.

  35. United Till I Die says:

    Giggs12 – haha, wind your neck in will ya?

    1) – My first post on this thread was at 21:44 so when did I swear at YOU?

    2) – Your mind is your own so think what you want. Have I told you otherwise?

    3) – Lol when did I “belittle” you?

    4) – Only ONE post was directed at you on this thread, and I left it at 23:21

    5) – You didn’t respond to that ONE post, so I didn’t address anything else to you.

    6) – Since no other post was directed at you, WTF are you harping on about?

    7) – Acknowledge that YOUR reading skills on this occasion have been “inept”.

    8) – Acknowledge that it is YOU, and not I, who is guilty of being a “dick” today.

    9) – Apologise for all that bollocks you just said about me for no reason.

    Thing is Giggsy mate, something tells me you won’t admit to misreading my posts. Something also tells me you won’t apologise for your last ranting post. Why you’ve decided to internalise my posts (which were directed at RoM and NOT you personally) I’ll never ever know. Perhaps you are guilty of taking this online lark a bit too serious? Even so, its your God given right to become emotionally involved with a blog if thats your desire – all im asking is you DON’T come at my neck for no fucking reason.

    Christ, it’s just as well I can’t be belittled by some anonymous bloke on a website, aye?

  36. United Till I Die says:

    Fucking smilies – thats a number 8 by the way I don’t wanna “confuse” anybody Lol.
    And when I said “fucking” I wasn’t swearing at anybody in particular either.
    Last thing I want is to belittle or cause distress to anybody on here

  37. United Till I Die says:

    @daemondada – just out of interest, did you assume my post at 14:33 was solely directed at Giggs12 or did you assume my post was a general post for the entire thread?

  38. Giggs12Gerrard0 says:

    United till I die

    Willing to wind it in and apologies if it wasn’t addressed to me. I read it as though it was given there was only really me voicing my strong opinion on Bebe.

    I’m not emotionally stressed by the blog I was pissed off by told what I can and can’t think I find it amusing how some will not allow to rant about player.

  39. Giggs12Gerrard0 says:

    Not willing to that it is I being a dick though :-)

  40. daemondada says:

    Utd Till I Die.I meant ur post directly above mine @ 17.11.That’s why I don’t post often cos RoMers such as urself constantly leave me sated.Cheers bro.

  42. United Till I Die says:

    Rest assured it wasn’t directed at you mate. I used to read all the comments but not so much now. Less time thankfully. I mainly skim and pick up the talking points so most of my posts aren’t to anybody in particular. I always address people directly if my post is directly for them, I always have to be fair since you was Giggs11 I believe!

    We’ve all got “freedom of speech” on RoM topics, and that means the person you disagree with ALSO has the right to opine however the fuck they please. Im fine with that and I keep an open mind, but where theres firm disagreements common sense has to kick in, as it has here.

    We’ll disagree on Bebe, and as far as im concerned that doesn’t mean we should tip toe around the topic either otherwise we’d all be in here stroking each other… NOT my cup of tea! Im just here to debate the Club with like-minded level-headed fellow Supporters, whether we agree all the time or not.

    Cheers mate, we’ve both avoided being branded as dick heads. Result.

  43. United Till I Die says:


    Haha, “sated”. Cheers mate.

  44. Giggs12Gerrard0 says:

    United till I die

    Yeah mate I agree let’s not get silly, my neck is wound right back in :-)

    Apologies for saying don’t be a dick.
