    Wow… Those fuckers really were thick!! Haha
    I’m loving this Formula 1 league. Where can I get a season ticket.
    You can forget Raul he is deffo not going to be playing in Europe next year.

  2. Albert Ross says:

    Mike – Season tickets come with the package! That’s what is so wonderful, they have thought of everything! All included is your flight to New Manchester FC, a lovely new home with kids if required, a season ticket, and a job at the stadium (well, that’s what the season ticket is for, more of a clock-card really)

  3. Albert Ross says:

    Viewing the matches while at work is not compulsory, you may face the other way.

    In fact it’s recommended.

  4. Albert Ross says:

    When challenged on the state of the game after 3 match-fixing accusations appeared on the same day, Sepp Blatter shouted “Damn it! I could have got 50 to 1 on that!”

  5. King Eric says:

    Clint – Spot on pal. Martinez is the hub of that team and everything goes through him. Not a big fan of De Marcos to be fair. The others like you say are decent players but look good together in that side. Sadly like you say Barca will end up getting Martinez.

    If we can’t have one legend like Raul, pick another :P Del Piero would be a dream at OT, love the man, he like Berba walk around with Cool tatoo’d to the forehead.

    He built Juventus as a player and formed great history but they are moving on without him which is sad to see, the same happened to Raul and Hierro.

    Such a class act too….on his soon departure;

    “Angelli’s remarks surprised me,” he said in an interview with Vanity Fair. “But a captain must never forget his duties and what he represents.Juventus are committed to winning the Scudetto and Coppa Italia. There is no need for controversy, which has never been present in my career.”

    We need to pull these legends like Raul and Del-boy Piero out of semi-retirement to Dubai to rainy old Manchester, one last huff and puff to give these guys a send off, Owen got his, Larsson too.

    Ole Gunnar’s retirement was very emotional…legends…they make us what we are in the present.

    Three goals and an assist in his last five appearances, goals against Milan and Inter and an assist at Napoli, he sounds heartbroken that a club he’s been at 19 years can dump him so easily,

    @giggs12 – no denim jackets? What about a denim vest or hi rise dye washed jeans? Are mullets allow inside old Trafford?

  8. mara says:

    I think that all these guys are good. But the question of all questions is, wich of those players can fit in our philosophy of playing. IF Martinez go to Barca…how many midfield players Barca need? IS he realy think he is gonna play? I think we need to consider 4 of them..accept Llorente…because we need tehnicaly good players in middle. They are fast also. Eriksen should be also there…
    If you look for a bit…a lot of Dutch players playing great in all leagues. Their football shool is great and they fit on every stile of football very quick
