    daemondada – in all seriousness, great comment. It got better with each read! Only joking, it was good and I mean that sincerely. Nice sentiment. :)

  2. Fred says:

    UTID – Agreed, Kagawa’s performance was the best thing about today’s game. Bébé managing to score into an open goal was a close second. :P

    Oscar having medical at Chelsea to join Hazard. And f#@% all we hear is Bebe has future at United? That’s right, Bebe can be our Pele, he is like the new signing. Pathetic.

    Pressed submit to early :-)

    Mate I am genuinely shocked people talk about Bebe being class and the potential. I dont lie when i say i have never seen a worse player in the first team.

  10. United Till I Die says:

    @kc – thing is fella, why is so much expected from Bebe?

    Rooney, Berbatov, Hernandez, Welbeck (in order of seniority and salary)

    THESE are the Strikers who will help us retain our title NOT Bebe, and if we lack the fire power to out score other teams this season THESE are the Strikers we should look at.

    If anything Bebe is in the same bracket as teenage reserve players who won’t play in the first team this season. Thats should be obvious for anybody with a brain.

    The fans who defend Bebe from his over the top critics are not the ones who are deluded. The fans who speak about Bebe in the same breath as our upcoming campaign, they are the deluded ones.

    What has Bebe got to do with our first team, or our activity in the transfer window? I doubt he’ll even make the Squad for this season, so I don’t understand why people are so negative about this guy?

    If he’s that shit Alex will sell him init?

    More to the point this is a bit of escapism in pre-season for fuck sake – NOBODY expects Bebe to do anything for the first team this season. Its funny people are saying posters like me should calm down about Bebe.

    I think his critics should calm down, he’s only a fucking reserve player.

    United til I die – you didn’t seriously list Berbatov as the 2nd most important stirker that will hel pus regain (not retain btw) our title… absolutely no offense to Berb intended at all but the only way he’s still on the team come Everton is if no one offers a cup of tea and day old sandwich in the next month. Sir Alex sees absolutely no value in retaining him in our roster and obviously hasn’t for the past year and a half. Also obviously Bebe isn’t going to be a striker/winger to count on likely anytime soon but I and probably many others just would love seeing the egg on the face of the press and doubters if somehow he did come good. Not only that but what a story it would make.

  12. United Till I Die says:

    @JC – just noticed the typo. I think “retain” instead of “regain” was a Freudian slip. I stand by what I said about Berbatov as well, it was only season before last he was scoring hat-tricks against Liverpool and parading the EPL trophy as top goal scorer. I rate Danny and Chico highly but talent-wise Berbatov is still the second best striker we have imo, even if those two have edged ahead of him in the roster. But thats besides the point I was making – im saying our main strikers should be at the forefront of everyone’s mind this season and they should have all the expectancy dropped on their shoulders, not a reserve player like Bebe, even though his success would make a great story as you said.

  13. JC says:

    I don’t have a problem with your evaluation of Berba as a player, i just don’t see any way back for him to any type of regular role with the team unless we have a massive injury crisis in the forward line in preseason (touch wood). Unfortunately for him Sir Alex has made it pretty clear though his selections that The Berb never even crosses his mind when thinking of our top 3 choices at striker.
