    Kings – As Saturday’s game will be city’s second biggest match in over 30 years, I expect that you’ll only have to watch as the over-excited idiots get beaten black and blue.

  2. Kings says:

    Mikekelly12 – Haha. Yeah especially if his punch on Morten Gamst Pedersen was anything to go by!

  3. Mikekelly12 says:

    Smartalex – no doubt they will be claiming the possibility of winning their 3rd trophy until we destroy them!!

  4. Kings says:

    smartalex – Let’s hope Kunt Aguero remembers to bring his boots with him and not have to borrow Mancini’s again. Fucking idiot.

  5. Mikekelly12 says:

    Kings – if that is the case they’ll be using cigar butts and not batons!!

  6. Kings says:

    Mikekelly12 – Let’s hope nut job Balotelli ends up doing a Phil Babb!

  7. Kings says:

    Mikekelly12 – Like it mate!

  8. smartalex says:

    Every year I want to win the Charity shield, but I’m much more interested in seeing how far we’ve come with pre-season. I’d much rather play well and lose, than play badly and get a lucky win.

    This year it seems likely that we will play very well, and win convincingly; and I must say I’m much keener on a good result than ever before.

  9. smartalex says:

    Kings – between Kunt’s boots and balotelli’s bib the city kitman has the worst job in football.

  10. smartalex says:

    All in the game yo, all in the game.

  11. smartalex says:

    ‘Two second half goals from a young Manchester United side inflicted a second home pre-season defeat in a week on Morecambe. Clinical finishes from captain Daniel Drinkwater and substitute Jessie Lingard gave the United of the future victory in what was another good outing for The Shrimps.’

  12. smartalex says:

    ps Rafael played 30 minutes against Morecambe. Kuszczak played 90.

  13. Mikekelly12 says:

    Kings – Phil Babb as in nut cruncher?!

    Smartalex – they’re ridiculous. I wonder if they trot out with another star on their shirt after the trophy they won in Ireland ??!

  14. smartalex says:

    Edwin has already pulled off a great save!

  15. smartalex says:

    Mikekelly12 – We are so lucky that the most hysterically stupid and side-splitting club in the world happens to be in our city!

    ps Ajax take the lead through Overmars, great finish! Half time now.

  16. Kings says:

    smartalex – Absolutely hilarious watching that dopey cunt Balotelli struggling to put his bib on.

    Mikekelly12 – That’s the one mate. They went so far up he had to spit them out and put them back in his sack. I hope he had kids before that unfortunate incident.

  17. smartalex says:

    Rooney, Giggs, Vidic, Carrick etc are also in Holland, and play next.

    “I’m just a humble mother fucker with a big – ass dick”

  19. smartalex says:

    - You give yourself too much credit.

    “Okay then. I ain’t that humble.”

  20. smartalex says:

    Ajax ’98 beat Holland ’98 1:0

    (Edwin played for the Ajax ’98 selection)

  21. Mikekelly12 says:

    VDS has only been gone half a summer and watching that 20mins I’m already missing him!

  22. smartalex says:

    Also Neville and Rio playing in this game now. Watch!

  23. Zibbie says:

    willie’s nick name is tri-pod.

  24. smartalex says:

    What a great testimonial day Ajax are having for Van der Sar!

    I’m now well ready and looking forward to the game.
    Sir Alex is managing one side, Edwin the other.

  25. willierednut says:

    Swings and roundabouts Zibbie.

  26. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    @smartalex, Amen to that mate. This is exactly what a player of the quality, talent and class as Edwin Van Der Sar deserves.

    I hate it only for one reason: It brings that thing to my eye that I don’t like seeing.

    Farewell, Edwin. You will be missed as much as The Great Dane.

  27. smartalex says:

    Half time 0:0

  28. smartalex says:

    @Balaji, Yes, it’s a bittersweet moment.
    Watching Edwin one can’t help but wish that he was not retiring.

    Nostalgia aside, he is still the best keeper in the world.
    Fortunately we have Sir Alex, and he has got us de Gea and Lindegaard.

  29. smartalex says:

    Rio assists Saha from a free kick in the DreamTeam’s (our) half at the start of the second phalf.

  30. smartalex says:

    phalf – p = ½

  31. moscow JT says:

    you 3 are really enjoying yourselves on this thread. i surely do envy 3 are really enjoying yourselves on this thread. i surely do envy you.

  33. smartalex says:

    moscow JT – The water’s lovely!

  35. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    Dennis Bergkamp showing his class. One of my all-time favorite players. Fergie, Sign Him Up! :D

  36. smartalex says:

    Dream team leads 1:2 Scored by Bergkamp, assist by Rooney from Giggs.

  37. smartalex says:

    You wot!

  38. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    @AnnieEaves on Twitter: “I’ve got dust in my eyes.”

    BTW, does anybody know how well Edwin’s wife is doing? I really hope she is/will be completely cured and Edwin can be happy forever. People like Edwin deserve that in life.

  39. smartalex says:


    Orlando Pirates Under-15s increased their chances of advancing to the next stage of the Manchester United Premier Cup when they beat Chilean side Universidad Catolica 1-0 today.

  40. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    Whose bright idea was it to have Edwin and Scholesy’s testimonials a few days apart?

    I hate crying, much less having to do that a couple of days apart.

    From the bottom of my heart, I wish Edwin the very best in life. It is my sincere hope that he returns to us in a coaching capacity after deservedly taking a year’s break.

    I still cannot believe this is the last we will ever see of The Flying Dutchman on the pitch.

    Thanks for the memories, Edwin.

  41. smartalex says:

    Balaji, Edwin’s wife looks very well as she walks around the field with him and the kids.
    This is a wonderful moment, and shows that Edwin has made the right choice.

    The Van der Sars can get to know share each other properly.

    Thanks Edwin. Enjoy your family now.

  42. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    One of Edwin’s finest moments in a Red shirt (You know what it is):

    @smartalex, Yeah, she does look like she is doing great and in good health. All that we can hope for and Pray to God.

    That is still my regret from the 28th – Not that we couldn’t win it but that Paul Scholes and Edwin Van Der Sar didn’t get the send off they deserved. But, alas, such is life. You win some and you lose some.

    This Edwin montage that I am getting on my stream is really great even though I don’t understand a word of what Edwin is saying. Just demonstrates the long and distinguished career he has had. It is a quite simple fact – There aren’t enough people like Paul Scholes and Edwin Van Der Sar in modern football.

  43. smartalex says:

    @Balaji, Agreed. It is a travesty that their Careers should end with such a loss. Sad.

  44. smartalex says:


  45. willierednut says:

    C – bo, ya bald headed nut!

  46. smartalex says:

    I got to ask you. If every time Snotboogie would grab the money and run away, why’d you even let him in the game?
