Van der Sar: It’s A Great Club To Be At

Edwin Van der Sar, who turns 40-years-old in October, has responded to questions about his retirement.

“I have been hearing these questions for the last three or four years,” said Edwin. “Sometimes you surprise yourself also. It is a great club to be at. You play in the Premier League, the Champions League, you have a chance of winning titles and trophies and competing against the best players in the league. It is something that is too good not to do it any more. I still very much enjoy it. Even my age it is still a pleasure to put in all the hard work so you are in the starting XI on a Saturday and a Tuesday night.”

    VDS should continue for the next 2 season IMO.
    however united should do their home work for his replacement to avoid post-Schmeichel like wait.

  2. bruce thomas says:

    Let’s put it another way. The Glazers haven’t got any money for a replacement.

  3. YorYor says:

    VDS defies his age, and I’ve got every confidence in Kuszczak. The fact that he has improved last season despite not getting much first team games at all shows that he can only get steadier as he gets more games. Better him than some hyped-up super-GK from some other league.
    The only other goalkeeper whom I would absolutely want at United has to be Petr Cech, though some say he’s not the same GK since his head injury.

  4. lucas says:

    he is a class. we are also lucky to have him as he’s having Man United! We are at the top of pies for long time because of fair numbers of matured heads like him in the squad.

  5. Kev Kev says:

    Kuz is an hot head though. Good shot stopper but at the end of the day, we need a replacement in the mould of Edwin/Schmikes.

    been a good week sense good morale around the team,vidic signing rooney going to get a new contract,valencia came out and said doesn’t care who comes knocking including real and barcelona wants to stay at utd for the next decade things are good.akinfeev wants out of russia and mentioned utd as a team he’d like to come to,the benzema rumor won’t go away if its true sir alex must really love that kid@bruce thomas it would be nice for once if we could just focus on the positive instead of always coming back to the glaziers and debt i’m so fucking sick of it and again for the 10,000 time sir alex has stated he has money to spend why won’t people believe him

  7. SP says:


    cuz he aint usin it mate. what do you expect him to say? “the glazers have not given me any money bc they are too busy heaping this club into a financial mess” doubt it.

    bruce thomas
    arent you an idiot? on every post, you always have something about the glazers! im no pro-glazer but i think youre going way over the limit. we get the point youre trying to make!

  9. parryheid says:

    Come January window the only G/K I would want in is the leagues record priced one.

  10. huzi says:

    so what youre saying is fergie is a liar!
    i dont get the point! you guys want him to buy just to show we have money. i for 1 think our squad is great with the mixture of young and experience. if fergie doesnt buy im happy, and if he does. . .well, thats good.

  11. MG says:

    VDS – Thank you for everything big man – wish we had signed you earlier : )

    bruce thomas – maybe we don’t need to sign anyone – have Ben Amos – and he’s getting to an age where he should get better after so much potential…

  12. NotoriousRedDevil says:

    Akinfeev, I’m impressed with him may not be everyones 1st choice but who the fuck was Schmeichel exactly before we signed him. Nobody.

  13. willierednut says:

    bruce thomas – I think we could afford a new keeper, no need for one atm.

  14. Red Devil 19 says:

    one of our best kepers ever!!

  15. wayne says:

    @sp sir alex doesn’t have to lie about anything for gods sake how many times does he have to tell everyone how thinks the glaziers are good owners never refused him anything but he’s not interested in a rentboy for a inflated transfer fee and wages.if sir alex wasn’t happy we’d know about it he has way more power than the glaziers it boggles my mind that fans question his integrity after all he’s done for the club

  16. parryheid says:


    Dont worry about them mate if the Supreme being say’s it’s not happening then it aint regardless of anti’s or owners.

  17. Zelh says:

    My favorites are Akinfeev and Neuer.
    both have tremendous potential.

  18. Red Typhoon says:

    I can’t agree more with what you said..Sir Alex does not have to lie..i believe him and i believe that we are good value to purchase a player if the Boss deems it necessary…

    good day everyone,

    on holidays in San Francisco. Getting a flight to Kansas to see the game hopefully, Wife not best pleased but will sort that.

    Over the moon that The VIDIC has resigned. best defender in the World. Gives him at least 8 chances to stick his boot up the Ladyboy. Was getting very worried about the slow lowering in the level of our players.

    I like all the rest of us hate the glaziers. I would like to see a signing or two. I honestly think we need another forward and have thought so for the last couple of seasons. But I do think that the Glaziers do understand how powerful SAF is. Can you imagine what would happen if SAF came out said they were lying to him and they sacked him? If SAF added his voice against them? Shit it would be debated in the UN and parliament.

    @RedHarry4Life make sure you take a alot of good pics and if possible videos too, upload them and tell us the link pls!!

    i dont mind about bruce thomas really.. if you dont like it then just ignore his comment. You can say he’s being negative, but he has some truth in what he said. same like GHTT’s always posting the links to emily’s chants, some might not like that but i really enjoy watching every of his links. Guys like them makes me love the club more.

    anyway, as long as VDS can pull it off, i dont mind having him as our no1 no matter how old he is. that goes with every player we have..
