Today’s Round Up: Richardson, Andy Cole, Phil Neville and more…

It’s a rubbish weekend when United aren’t playing. Having to wait until Monday to see our lads in action makes for a pretty boring Saturday.

Here’s the RoM summary of today’s action.

Roy Keane clocks his first victory of the new season against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. Former United winger and waste of space, Kieran Richardson, opened the scoring with a good goal, before new signing Djibril YSB Cisse scored the winner, after Jermaine Jenas had previously levelled the score. The home fans booed off their team in a game where United target Dimitar Berbatov didn’t even feature in the squad. It’s going from bad to worse for Spurs.

Phil Neville had one his ‘moments’, handballing in the area and giving away a penalty against West Brom, however they went on to win 2-1 regardless. Phil might want to rethink the Alan Smith stylee bleached blonde hair as well!

Newly promoted Hull got a point against Paul Ince’s Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park, whilst Michael Owen got the winner in a 1-0 win at St James Park against Bolton.

The lucky bindippers picked up an undeserved three points at home to Middlesbrough following an own goal deflected from a Jamie Carragher chance in the 85th minute, with Stevie Me scoring the winner in the 94th minute. Top of the league! Two places above, er, Hull.

Elsewhere, Stoke City pulled off the shock of the day, beating Aston Villa 3-2 at Villa Park, taking the lead on three occasions.

To the Championship, where Andy Cole made his debut from the bench for Nottingham Forest in their 3-2 victory over Watford.

Steve Bruce’s lad got sent off playing for Ipswich in a game which saw former red, Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, get on the scoresheet.

    Big nose scouse cunt Philnoccio Thompson was having an orgasm on Soccer Saturday when Fat Le Tissier announced that Stevie Me had nicked it for the dippers, prompting that prick to say the following: Hee hee Premiership for us this year – what a wanker!

  2. Drew Vader says:

    Has there ever been a more undeserving team with 6 points in the history of the sport than those lucky scouse bastards?? They were absolutely terrible for 85 mins and still won…I cant believe it

  3. Ryan says:

    Lee Martin scored the opener for Forest..since he is still our player, that is good news I guess, will lift his price when we decide to sell him

    I, too, watched in that mixture of contempt, disgust and disbelief that usually motivates me to watch the scouse dippers in the hope of a loss. But, now, twice in a row they’ve won against the play. It can’t continue – see the Arse, last year And, speaking of the Arse – who I watched with that same mixture of contempt, disgust, and disbelief – they were shoddy, which really wasn’t surprising since they were lucky last week

    Tomorrow morning, more contempt, disgust and disbelief in the hope that Wigan can energize Emile Heskey to beat the RentBoyz.

    Well done Roy Keane, and for Liverpool, today are very licky to get a late goal from Gerrard like that. However, in my opinion, the mos important thing for us now is to concentrate on bringing in new top class striker.

    This season will never be the same as Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal will be much stronger. There will be no African Nation Cup so the African players in Chelsea and Arsenal camp will not be awayed like last season.,…. and with the absence of our terrific Ronaldo, it is obvious that United will struggling if they cannot sign any top class striker.

    Rooney today is no longer a top class striker. It seems like he doesn’t know what he should do most on the pitch which is scoring goals. His scoring rate is too low for being a top clas striker. Saha’s always injured. And with Ronaldo still out for at least 8 weeks, it sems like we only have Tevez whose height is not big enough for playing as a target man.

    If we fail to land Berbatov, United should go for Thierry Henry. With his pace, skill, and high scoring rate, the signing of Henry will benefit United a lot. I can remember that Ronaldo used to say that Henry is one of his favourite players. So, apart from benefits on the pitch, the signing of Henry will make Ronaldo stay with us longer.
