    Some great stocking stuffers for the slightly nutter red fan. Personal favorits are Sons of United and Deepest Red both freshly minted.

    For those that don’t know the Sons of United story. Get on it ….. Right now!!!
    One in every 2 United senior debuts is a United Academy graduate.
    Not another top 4 side in England comes close.

  2. Take me to Old Trafford says:

    Let’s put the bitter cunts into their place

  7. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Sir Bobby says that neither he nor SAF like Mourinho very much. WOW

    “A United manager wouldn’t do that,” Charlton says. “Mourinho is a really good coach but that’s as far as I would go really. He’s the manager of Real Madrid and we expect to play them in the Champions League by the end of the season.”

    When it is put to him that it is difficult to imagine a United manager being allowed to get away with some of Mourinho’s behaviour, Charlton says: “You are right. He pontificates too much for my liking. He’s a good manager, though.” But Ferguson admires Mourinho. “He doesn’t like him too much, though,” Charlton shoots back.

    Ok you Mourinho loving lot……. take that! :cool:

  8. Hans says:

    A performance like this one tomorrow, would make a perfect early Christmas present!

  9. Dave Malaysia says:

    If this interview is clear, no lost in translation claims later, then it does make it clear who is the

    choice to replace Fergie in the future.

    Or does it? Mind games?

    Mourinho.Pep and Moyes frontrunners.

    Klopp possibility.

    Solskjaer , in the future.

    Moyes is the only one capable of that steely scottish stare and hairdryer.
    Fergie wanted him as his number 2, before Moyes joined everton.
    Moyes has worked with a shoestring budget, highs and lows of football, some Euro experience,ok in transfers, different teams different styles.
    Stayed at everton for a long time.
    Mourinho, big enough, tough enough to handle the pressure.Will for the first time be theman in charge of the football side of the club. No football directors.
    Has mellowed ,matured,less arrogance.
    A winner, at every club he has been,actually capable of overtaking Fergie in trophys haul,if he continues.
    Only the portugal national team job left and returning to england to challenge him.
    Pep has class,knowledge,luck, experience. Knows how to play swashbuckling football.
    Wud be in charge of Uniteds football side,no football director.
    Wud love the history of the club.
    Never managed outside barca,left after the pressure of expectations,not actual drawback but just a worry.
    chelsea cant get him,not after roman showed his stupid hand again. u are not coaching for theclub fans or players but just a bitch for roman to play with.
    city have got 2 ex barca to see thier redevelopement,so its a possibily.

    So what has his sabbatical taught him for the future?

    So who now ,what now in 2013 summer or 2014 summer?
