  3. WeRReD says:

    More of the good stuff to come in the first team matches.

  4. aig alex is god says:

    good morning everyone.

    good to hear that ando scored.good goal but keeper should have done better.hope he scores at the senior level too.

    isnt he in the brazil squad to face argies tmmrw??

  5. dummy says:

    completely apart.. chelsea was banned from recruiting until 2011 and we could face the same sanction for recruiting pogba. What if we cant sign anyone? sucks

  6. WeRReD says:

    @dummy, David Gill said we’ve acted completely under the UEFA guidelines to sign the youngster. Don’t think we’re going to have any problems with it.

  7. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    chelsea broke the rules
    united just pissed teams off by following a little hiden rule

  8. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    its like fucking a 15 year old english girl who lives in iceland
    her parents would be pissed
    but it legal in that country

  9. aig alex is god says:

    as united fan i hate chelsea but i think that this is more than just a seriously stinks of an anti english campaign.firstly dont players from spain and italy dive? why just catch eduardo and ban him because a certain scottish cunts says that celtic were hard done by it when they are such a shit team that even with 22 men they would not have qualified.

    secondly,okay chelsea broke the rules but then who exactly knows whether we follow the rules or no?just because david gill(no disrespect to him) says i do not believe that we did everything according to the book.FIFA will find something and punish him.

    thirdly the fatso sepp clatter said after real had signed ron,kaka and benzema that english clubs spend lot of the fatsos mind dwindling with age.cant he see that real have spent 200odd million pounds and barca have spent 70 odd million top 4 english team has even spent more than 30 million.

    also last year CL semis.i just analyzed it now.okay it was chelsea,but how would all of us have felt if we were robbed in such a way?would SAF have kept quiet? tom henning fatso or whoever that cunt was had robbed us in such a way.

    another mistake people are making is comparing the berba situation with how shameless real tapped up ronny.Did we ever go public about our intrest in Berba? newspaper did carry the story but later on admitted that SAF had not said anything like that.real on the other hand were shamelessly making public statements in that trash marca and the disgraced Ramon calderon was everytime making statements in the press.

  10. The Binocular says:

    He better start scoring.

    Anderson is a strange one.

    In the 07/08 season he was looking like a class act.

    I think he could be struggling to develop.

    What do you think of the Europa League?

  11. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    A.I.G. unitd did break rules signing berbatov, the ultimate tapping up, on the way from london to manchester on a flight paid for by spurs , they had aranged a meeting between berbatov and manchester city after saying they would not sell to united. sir alex ferguson kidnapped berbatov from the flight as sparky waited. it was resolved during the day with spurs with fraizer been used as a peace offering. i also think that chelsea champions league semi final was a shit ref way out of his dept and frightened to give each team a desision. chelsea had bigger one disallowed but if the ref made 10 mistakes gave the handball peno and chelsea had of won then noone would be talkin about that ref.
    Anyway as ive said in a past post about nani im really dying for anderson to light up the world i think anderson this season is going to have to learn how to keep his feet grounded like ,it looks like, nani did last season.
    from a champions league final to a reserve game because your country didnt pick ya is either the start of a drop or a slap in the face to wake you up

  12. aig alex is god says:


    ok mate.but did united ever go to the press and talk crap that we want to sign him and blah blah.i am talkinsg about unsettling a player publically which is what real did.we did not tell berba to break his contract or start making statements in public about his dream.he said it was his dream only after he made the can understand his reluctance for not wanting to join shitty and wanting to join a club that competes on all fronts and wins trophies rather than one that wins carling cup once is 100 years or so.

  13. pittm says:

    why is Anderson playing in a reserve match? He was also not in the main Champions League roster, is there maybe some truth to his fallout with SAF? :\

  14. Wakey says:

    He wasn’t on the main CL roster because why waste a main slot for a player who qualifies for the B list. It allowed us to name players like Macheda and even Hargreaves in the CL squad who otherwise would have been left out completely.

    As for playing in the reserves, a few of the players around the edges of the first 11 have played for the reserves this season. The minutes help them with their fitness. Now if he had started every match and was then put in the reserves you would worry

  15. Muggaz says:


    Loved that Iceland analogy. Classic.

  16. King Eric says:


    Pittm – Have a look at the post entitled “Why has Tosic been left out of the European squad?”. It covers Anderson in there.

    Regarding the reserves how much does Oliver Gill look like his old man?

  17. jessetto says:

    hope ando comes good

  18. unitedgirl16 says:

    Good goal Ando! Keep it up

  19. denton davey says:

    Was Anderson playing as an attacking midfielder ?

  20. Osci says:

    @denton davey, I believe so, yes. He was playing behind Febian Brandy, with Eikrem and Matty James behind him!

  21. andre_k says:

    i like the look of eikram, one for the future methinks… shame hes such an ugly fucker!

  22. sumzarmy says:

    who the fuk is pogba?

  23. denton davey says:

    Osci – thanks for that update. It’s good to learn that he’s being re-deployed in the role for which he’s best suited. I think that this is part of a re-think about the formations which UTD might use – I don’t believe that 4-4-2 will be used all the time. In some games – and against some opponents – I think that SAF will use a variant of a 4-3-3/4-5-1 and that Anderson will probably be used in that way. I’m quite optimistic that Hargreaves will come back to full match-fitness and he will probably be used alongside Carrick and Fletcherinho as one of the “2″ and with Anderson as one of the “3 or 5″. That said, however, I’d still like to see Anderson/Fletcherinho as the “2″.

  24. jcolas says:

    Did Ando actually shoot with laces? Brilliant! Also, was thinking this morning and it’s kind of sad but…. Diaby has more senior goals for United than ando :(

  25. Welbz19 says:

    Ando played much deeper than Matt James and Sam Hewson with Eikrem playing on the left! Look good tho passing was different class and bs attitude seemed good considering it was a reserve game!

  26. KJ says:

    Magnus is still very young, but Ive been following him, and im tipping him for a big break soon

  27. johnexd says:

    Andy cannot head the ball, runs out of steam in the game anf if faced with a quck opponent cannot keep up. His shooting is poor and he cannot pass with his right foot his tacliking is very average. i cannot see this guy making the grade to be a full time MUFC player week in week out unless he puts more effort into improving his all roud effectivness. He ha a good left foot and attemts to pass the ball into good areas but hi completion rate is low The young lad magnus was vand has been ery impressive every time i have seen him. He very rarely gives the ball away and completes more passes.

    on a second point Rafeal needs some lessons o who to defend at the moment he is getting by with his pace to aid his recovery but he was dreadful defending last night in the reserves.

  28. Sagar says:

    great goal
    reminds me of young ronaldinho of 5 years ago

  29. Fze123 says:

    does anyone know why ando scored?

    it’s because he was playing as an attacking midfielder. which is the position that he should always play in.
