    Scott seems to have forgotten to include thhis among the ROM reads;
    I also concur the man to fear in that madrid team is the silent one. mesut ozil.

  2. Little Red Ant says:

    I hope it is one of Cristiano’s poor games, where is frustrated and complaining all the time about not being awarded free kicks. Once he is in that mood he usually doesn’t show up. Roll on 7.45pm !!

    Nice read on the Independent

  4. Mitch Kramer says:

    Scott, the Madrid commentator in The Mirror piece is a buffoon. In other news…


  5. United till I die says:

    Always enjoy Scott’s Q&A with the mirror and opposing fans. I’ve always got the impression Scott was never that keen on Mourhino but its nice to see him recognize his footballing achievements even if he is a dickhead.

    Must read for History buffs:

    Incredible story of how Real Madrid helped keep United up after the Munich Air Disaster

    They offered us Di Steffano on loan
    but the FA said he would take away the job of a brit so turned it down :roll:

    Another cracking good read:

    Patty Crerand recounts when Unite beat Real Madrid in 1968

  8. King Eric says:

    Scott – I am pretty certain United have won 14 of last 15 in league and drawing other not just 7 from last 8?

  9. King Eric says:

    That Madrid fan is a fucking prick. Only RVP would make it into Madrid side and Tony? Rooney on bench? Better than that fat fucking rude boy Benzema and Higuain. Vida? Carrick. Hernandez there are loads. I wouldn’t have Modric anywhere near United Scott. Fucking garbage. Weak pathetic cunt. Doesn’t score, doesn’t create, doesn’t run games. Bang average as is being found out at Madrid. On his comments on Fergie “He needs a new watch”. Yeah how fucking insightful. Fucking arrogant wankers are Madrid and all associated with them.

  10. King Eric says:

    Ha “Will there be more Reds” than City? Err I fucking think so. Just youtube the City fans doing the Kolo and Yaya song. Fucking embarrassing cunts.

  11. Scott says:

    King Eric – Nope, we’ve drawn with Swansea and Spurs.

  12. King Eric says:

    Scott – Yeah I meant the drawn Spurs game, forgot about Swansea!
