    I don’t know why, but I’ve got a good feeling about tomorrow’s game. If I put the hex on it so be it, but I’ve just got a strong feeling we’re going to win tomorrow but with a few scares along the way. Juan Mata to open his United account tomorrow and become a cult hero! He comes across as a really decent bloke and of course we all know about his footballing talents. Come on United!

    Just seen an interview with Ole.
    He thinks Zaha was tripped and
    Should of had a penalty !

  3. Redfrog says:

    @m09…Yeah, I’ve seen that.I’m not sure it was a pen but Zaha did some good stuff when he came in. He is still a little raw in my opinion. He has peace and tricks but needs to be polished. He is not good enough decision wise but will progress I’m sure. Today, my favorite action was when he fought hard for the ball, took it and had a shot blocked.
    I feel a little sad for Ole. Cardiff had a good game today and a draw was fair, only for Everton to get one at the end, which they did so many times this year (that remember me one team, oh wait…hope we get back our late goals soon, it is heartbreaking to see other teams to do what we used to for so long).

  4. Redfrog says:

    @Gary…I feel we are gonna win tomorrow too ! Hope we are right ! “with a few scares along the way” : hey my friend, we are United, we are always doing it the hard way !
    I don’t know if I can watch the game tomorrow (family…) but that is not a bad thing for United as this year everytime I watched we played bad and conceded, but when I was not watching tv for 1minute or two it was always the time we were scoring. I am fucking bad luck :(

    Man Utd boss David Moyes by his former performance psychologist Michael Finnigan

    a view about the gaffer

  6. m09538061 says:

    All United fans are being told to get a rabies jab before sunday as a mad creature from south america is expected in the Manchester area.
    The Serbinator said if he spots it he will shoot to kill.
    Are,well first time for everythlng !

  7. m09538061 says:

    After todays results should be interesting tomorrow.
    ‘ you’re in decline you’re gonna lose thats all I hear from the ABUs let them have their stupid say cos
    we’re man united and we’re here to stay,here to stay,here to stay,we’re man united and we’re here to stay’

  8. dannysoya LOVES USAIN BOLT says:

    As far as my predictions tomorrow? I have to see the line-up first before I can predict how we will play and whether we will win. Such is the nature of our season that David Moyes can get it absolutely spot on ONE week and get it horribly wrong the next. I have no idea who he’s going to pick tomorrow and that is a BAD thing for us because based on the form of the players, our first team right now pretty much picks itself.

    All I can say is I hope he picks the right team and I hope we win.

  9. Martin Thomas says:

    United’s Top 20 Strikers:

    Great list. But where the fuck are Stuart Pearson and Jimmy Greenhoff?!

    Pancho got us out of Division 2 in 1975 and Jimmy got us the Cup in 77, and his winner in the semis took us back to Wembley again in 79. Both were fine players, they were great together and they played the United Way.

    I will leave the last word on Liverpool with the great Martin Buchan:

    “Liverpool can do what they want. It doesn’t matter what they do. They will never have the glamour mystique or the aura that surrounds Manchester United.”

  10. Gary Mitrovic says:

    Redfrog, well you’re luck has got to change soon then mate on watching games this season if you can watch that is. It would be a big confidence booster going into the Olympiakos game if we can turn the scousers over.

  12. united till i die says:

    What the fuck is going on with this site. Is anyone else having problems logging in on a day basis?

    I expect a 4-2-3-1 formation and win tomorrow against theses bastards. If we actually had 4 quality midfielders I wouldn’t be totally against a 4-4-2 so we can control the middle of the pitch but with the current group we might as well Go balls to the wall and attack theses cunts from the first whistle.

  13. tallestreD says:

    ROM has gone cold. What’s happening? Oh! I get it now….we haven’t lost yet.

    @ I don’t like Welbeck

    Good read. I guess all this unfounded optimism on the blog during the past week is the consequence of us beating the mighty WBA. Unlike some of you, some of us have a memory that stretches beyond the WBA game. I simply cannot fathom why our manager has the desire to utter nonsense like “apart from the olympiakos game, we’ve played quite well” when we all know that hasn’t been the case. Ok, you’ve beaten WBA and Crystal Palace, but you’re also expected to do well against the big boys. Let’s see how that pans out today.

    I hope Moyes proves me wrong, but based on what I’ve seen so far, I don’t believe he’s capable of turning things around.

  15. I dont like Welbeck says:


    “Who we buy and sell is nothing to do with me. It never has been and it never will. David Moyes is the manager and decisions like that are for him to make.”

    “Certain issues did arise last season that I wasn’t happy about. But out of respect to Sir Alex Ferguson I won’t talk about what went on because as far as I’m concerned it’s all in the past.

    “When David Moyes took over he made it clear to me straight away that he wanted to draw a line under last season. And the key thing was when he assured me that he had total belief in me.

    “Just as important, he also told me things that I probably didn’t want to hear. He told me I had lost something from my game and that I needed to get back to basics.

    “The boss reminded me about the player I was. He wanted to know what had happened to all my aggression. He said that I’d lost something important from my game and he wanted it back.”

  16. Redfrog says:

    @AntiScouser. Give it a break mate. It serves no purpose to be negative all the time. I don’t think people have forget, but we will be all happy if we can play better soon and it was for everyone to seen that there have been some progress.

  17. I dont like Welbeck says:

    “he also told me things that I probably didn’t want to hear” so he wanted to be told he is still the best
    SAF benched him that was enough wake up call but the man waited to be told..that you have to go back to the basics

    In your Liverpool slums,
    You look in the dustbin for something to eat,
    You find a dead rat and you think it’s a treat,
    In your Liverpool slums
    In your Liverpool slums,
    You shit on the carpet, you piss in the bath,
    You finger your grandma, and think its a laugh,
    In your Liverpool slums.
    In your Liverpool slums,
    You speak in an accent exceedingly rare,
    You wear a pink tracksuit and have curly hair,
    In your Liverpool slums.
    In your Liverpool slums,
    Your mum’s on the game and your dad’s in the nick,
    You can’t get a job ‘cos you’re too fucking thick,
    In your Liverpool slums.

    Vidic eyes last Liverpool clash

    Nemanja Vidic’s impending exit means he’s keen to savour his last United-Liverpool clash but how does this fixture compare to other great derbies he’s played in?

    I’ve played in derbies in Manchester, Moscow and Belgrade and it’s often a similar experience in terms of the atmosphere. But the Red Star vs Partizan derby in Belgrade is the one I grew up watching, then I played in it, which was one of the best feelings I’ve had in my career.

    I scored in the first Belgrade derby I played in and that was my dream. I said once that my dream was to score in that derby and run into the crowd and not come back! I said that as a kid. So, my dream came true – apart from the last part about running into the crowd to celebrate with the fans. I stayed on the pitch!

    It’s different when you’ve been a fan of a club from a very young age and then play in the match. That’s a great feeling. There is the derby with Manchester City but United against Liverpool is a big match too. It’s not just rivalry between two big clubs, it’s between two cities. You feel that on the pitch – the tradition of the two clubs.

    United against Liverpool is not just an English derby, it’s worldwide. Winning is a great feeling and losing is the worst feeling. But it’s being watched all over the world and you want to be involved – to be part of the show and part of the history.

    Negativity turns a blog into a dead zone. can’t believe how posters say with a straight face, they’re just giving their “opinion”, Constructive criticism is always welcome and invites good health debate. Negativity? Well, take a snapshot of our beloved ROM now. Starting to have that Red Rants blog vibe. The bile in that place is radioactive.

    Can’t wait for the game this afternoon, need to try and get at Liverpool form the off, we’re at home and we need the 3 points, they want it. DM needs the 3 points too. It will help morale within the squad and may light a fire under a couple of players behinds. Hoping Fellaini starts, it could be disaster but i think the guy could be revved up for this game, former Everton player and all that. Also like to see Jones at the back, although i see DM going with Vida.
    Really excited and can’t wait for kick off.

  21. ashtheking says:

    Eagerly waiting to see our line up, time to see whether moyes has learnt from his mistakes or. Not. Let’s win it today boys.

  22. m09538061 says:

    Having a great time singing songs about the ‘Bin-Dippers’.
    At Old Trafford.
    Altogether now:
    To the tune stretford end arising…..
    You think that curly hair is trendy.
    You think shell suits are too.
    With your stolen stereo. Boarded council house.
    We know your a fucking scouse !

    Great Fun.
    Stand up for the CHAMP20NS.

  23. Unagi says:

    Yup can’t wait to see the line up.

    Hope this will be beginning of some good run and with some luck will put United in CL.

    That would be huge morale boost (and some depression for a team that would loose spot in CL because of United) :)

  24. m09538061 says:

    Build a bonfire,build a bonfire.
    Put the Scousers on the top.
    Put the City in the middle and burn the fucking lot !
    Having a great time.
    Hope we win.

  25. Jose says:

    Conditions necessary for a win today. smalling at RB valencia on the right cleverly in midfield jones in midfield young on the left welbeck on the left wing.
    Moyes messes up on any of the above observations and there is no way we are beating liverpool.
    I go for same team tht played west brom except evans coming on for smalling and kagawa for januzaj.
