    De Gea is Numero Uno!
    Lindy is a good number 2 GK.

  2. Redial says:

    Really looking forward to seeing DDG in goal tomorrow, and hoping he has a Great game too plus a clean sheet.

  3. Proverb says:

    Amazing interview, great well improvised answers by scott
    This blog is out of this world. Some shit fans after the quiz: why you always sing about past players? Would of gone mental telling the bitter cunts how our current crop of players is shit and so on, unlike them, scott sends a great example as to how we should be treating the lads

  4. jay says:

    Fuckin Fabio might as well return to united. Doesn’t look like he’s gonna get a game with harry in charge

  5. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Jay, Think Fabio was injured and only just getting fit. Might be to early for him.

  6. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Hmmmmmmm, [strokes his chin]
    Hmmmmmmm, Scott doing interview with Typical City, [strokes his chin again]

    Right, I’m putting money on a long awaited rebirth of “view from the enemy”. :cool:

  7. ronnie says:

    getting nervy for big day tomorrow i’ll take a draw and move on………

  8. Marq says:


    Like Fletch said, Fabio has been out injured for some time, just only recovered

  9. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Get over to theFA and put your vote in for Danny Welbeck.

    Had a great run playing for England and deserving enough in my view. Look at the competition!

  10. Costas says:

    I knew we gave up on Manucho too soon. ;)

  11. Andooo says:

    Fergie either need to stick with DDG or buy another keeper, don’t rate Lindegaard at all.

    He took his 2 goals well tonight against Ronnie and co, never really got a chance at United but oh well we got Van Perfect so I’ll get over it.

  12. WeAreUnited says:

    This is stupid if it would be true.

    Going for Begovic when we have the great David De Gea. And as a back up Lindegaard.
    Usually your back-ups don’t play so DDG is a great stopper.

    Can’t see any truth behind this anyway.

  13. FletchTHEMAN says:

    We Are United

    Begors belief! ;)

  14. WeAreUnited says:


    for not being english, I had to go some dictionaries to find out what that means haha.

    Now I know this saying and can use it :P

  15. dannysoya LOVES USAIN BOLT says:

    LOL i’ve been seeing some REALLY weird shit in the news lately. Some rubbish about us thinking of buying Begovic for 8 million. Surely that’s a joke. LOL. De Gea has not even been given a chance to hold down the spot for a full season and he’s played only ONE season and now there are reports of us buying someone else? HAS to start the game. Don’t want to see Lindegaard in there. He’s had his fair share of games already.

  16. Ash says:


    Manucho was an ok ok striker. But I agree with you we have given up on so many players quickly. Rossi,Forlan,Mame Diouf( He is doing a fine job at bundesliga), Tosic etc. I don’t want to see kiko in that list now. I feel sorry for kiko. Never got chance to prove his worth. I still believe he is a lethal striker. Won’t it be better if we send him on loan for whole 2013 rather than just selling him. He may atlast prove his worth.
    I have still not given up my hopes with macheda.

  17. Costas says:


    The Rossi thing was unfortunate, but I put it in the same category as the Pique departure. He was someone that couldn’t wait for his turn and we couldn’t force him into the side. Of course, had we known that Tevez was going to sign a permanent deal or that Rio’s back problems would flare up, things might have been different for Rossi and Pique respectively.

    Macheda on the other hand is in a similar spot that Forlan was when he left. The new additions to our front line have made things even harder for him. I wanted to see his progress in the Carling Cup, but things have gotten so competitive, that Welbeck and Hernandez had to start in those games. I know things didn’t work at Sampdoria or QPR, but I’d definitely like to see him get one final loan move. Maybe to a more controlled environment where we know he will get a run of consecutive games. It’s something he never got in the last 3 years (other than Reserve team action).

    Todays Team:


    Chris Rio Evans Evra

    Rafael Carrick Scholes Rooney Welbeck

    Van Persie

    Morning all! Derby Day!!!!

    Come on THE REDS!!!!!

  20. Kungfoocantona says:

    Really dreading today, we have a few injuries to key players which doesnt frickin help…im dreading fergies tactical selection the most as now a days he goes with a formation to ther teams strenghts and not ours….the diamond must be avoided like the plague or we are fucked today and the same goes for pkaying rooney or welbeck on the wing…i think he should play young and rafael on the wings with carrick jones and rooney in the centre, rooney playing of rvp and dropping back when needed…then smalling rio evans and evra at the back along with ddg….ive just got a feeling we are at that stage again with goalkeepers than we were when the big dane left….all in all a bervous day indeed and il go bonkers if we beat them but no more injuries for fuck sake….im not gona post again until i see the team and formation and fuck i hope im not posting to moan…com on lads

  21. parryheid says:,say Valencia and Cleverly were training yesterday and are surprise starters for the game.Make of it what you will.

  22. wayne says:

    I’m so fucking wired for sound,game over here kicks off at 6.30 am its now 2.15 can’t sleep watching re runs of the Sopranos,.Last 2 years injuries have sucked but it just shows how good Utd’s squad is.Any other fucking team wouldn’t be challenging for fuck all Sir Alex barely mentions it every other manager would be using it as a excuse.We are Manchester United excuses don’t work for us the team is expected to win regardless.,That’s the reason we are hated because we are the best and every team strives to become what Utd are
