T-Shirt: It’s Probably Not As Good As Your Own Cow

Mancunia Merchandise has added a new design in honour of Sir Alex Ferguson’s recent comments about any player wanting away from Manchester United. His cow analogy isn’t quite up there with Eric Cantona and his seagulls, but I’m sure it’ll be one we hear quoted time and again.

Available in the UK shop and the US shop.

    @ Costas

    Safe to say you can replace JJ with SS (Shyla Stylez) Not that I know (cough cough) just heard!! LOL

    Morning all, cannot wait for the game tomorrow, C’MON YOU REDS

  3. Colbert says:

    Shyla Stylez is good, she’s pure filth. I was always a Briana Banks man myself. She’s looking a little rough now after 10 years in the biz, but she’s still got it! Haha

    hi everyone have been a fan of the this website for a couple of years and am on here most nights reading the comments you all make. the last couple of days during this rooney saga have done nothing else but read so thought it was about time i got myself signed up so i could also comment on one of the biggest loves of my life manchester united. i must say scott you do a fantastic job fair play to you mate! must say 3 points needed bigtime this weekend just hope the lads can forget about the shit of the past week and focus on wining this match and putting us back in the race for number 19!

  5. Costas says:

    There’s another JJ guys. Jesse Jane. :)

  6. CedarsDevil says:

    @ Colbert

    Shyla is not a favourite of mine, Naomi Russel is, again, not that I know just been told hahahaha

  7. CedarsDevil says:

    It is heart warming to see that all the tension from the last few days has died down… Personally I was so drained from the Rooney saga its beyond words…..

    Let us just go to Stoke and do what we do best, WIN and WIN in style…..

    UNITED for life

    The cow quote was directed at rooney trying to jump ship, sir alex meant when you have something, you always wanna look outside to see if someone else has got a better one and you get tempted to want that too, not sure why people are making a big deal out of it, calling it a “bizzare” saying e.t.c, probably because most football journalist in this country are thick as a plank.

    This is what seperates united’s legendary manager to any other, he is unique and expresses himself in the most unusual away, manchester united is a club who has a tradition of players with huge characters playing for them, i.e eric cantona.

    i’m a massive fan of sir alex, he is genius of a manager, scotland always seem to produce them though, probably because of there upbringing.

  9. Aig alex is god says:

    Rooney is getting 160k a week. Fair enough me thinks. Anyways we all knew when he would sign a new deal he will become the highest paid player at the club

  10. samuel - united WE stand says:

    @CedarsDevil – i wouldn’t get my hopes too up if i were you, stoke are gonna bombard us, can this defence withstand the pressure? We shall see, we have to be effective, we can’t be missing too many chances and can’t be give them many either, kenwyne jones worries me, won’t be easy and won’t be pretty either, i’d be delighted if we nick it though, hopefully evra and the whole defence wake up, maybe they need strong coffee? lol

  11. samuel - united WE stand says:

    @Aig – rooney getting that amount doesn’t rest easy with me, wages in football just seem to be spiralling out of control, players really are ripping off fans who love the game but what can fans do? Well as long he performs or he’ll be getting abuse, long gone are the days in which we’d treat rooney different to every other player, if he plays crap we shouldn’t be giving excuses for him.

  12. CedarsDevil says:

    @ samuel

    I know it won’t be easy but I am sure we have the class and strength to finally get our first away win in the league….. I fancy Hernandez getting the winner in a 2-1 win……… Jones worries me too, but Rio and Vidic will handle him

  13. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Yes we do have the class to do enough to win the game, we just need to keep concentration beyond 90mins, we need to punish most mistake stoke might game and gotta be resolute at the back, its a game that i’m gonna be on the edge for the duration of the match, not getting comfortable even if we lead, like you said though hopefully rio and vida sort him out.

    Have you listen to obesed cunt micky quinn saying vidic ain’t world class? a center back that scares the shit out of most strikers, he is not called vida the monster for no reason you know? I know he got exposed by torres a few season back but not many get the better of him, so i’m perplexed why he is still not getting credit.

    Next thing he’ll say carragher is world class and comparable to the greatest defender, pool have so much “world class” players that hopefully westham will be going above them today in the relegation zone , makes me laugh the amount of fools on that station.

  14. CedarsDevil says:

    Agree with you, but who the fuck is micky quinn? No one worthy of a mention here, stupid little piece of shit

  15. Jeet says:

    If you replace “cow” with “cunt” you got it…he is OUR cunt, but biy, he is some cunt…
    PS: Briana Banks is awesome…takes me back to my student days…:)

  16. CedarsDevil says:

    I did mean quinn of course!

    Morning – have all the idiots gone…

    Sir Alex

    “You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Well, who the hell else are you talkin’ to? You talkin’ to me? Well, I’m the only one here. Who the f–k do you think you’re talkin’ to?”

    Wayne Rooney (looking shell shocked)

    “My Mama always said, ‘Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get.’”

    Sir Alex

    “I’m gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse.”

    Wayne Rooney

    “Go ahead, make my day.”

    Sir Alex

    “There’s no place like home.”

    Wayne Rooney (in tears)

    “I’m the king of the world!”

    Sir Alex

    …The names Ferguson. Sir Alex Ferguson


  18. Costas says:


    Lol, yeah looks like the idiots are gone. Rom is back to normal.

  19. Colbert says:


    She certainly is. You have excellent taste, sir.

  20. MG says:


    Hell broke loose – all the idiots came out of the woodwork – and now they are gone

    So much for supporting United – never there when it matters only when they want to make a point whatever that it is

    For United

  21. Gorse Hill Red says:

    Nice pic, would be better if it had a couple of seagulls flying above!
