    Pogba’s a fucking cunt. I’d happily pay over half my annual salary every year just to keep twats like him out of our club and our squad.

    Chicharito is pure class. A United man; in character, stature, and footballing quality.
    Thanks SAF, yet another good buy before your goodbye.

  2. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Good read on what the potential arrival of thiago (big if at the moment) would bring to table.

  3. Andromeda says:

    Obviously the Wayne Rooney situation is still vague and its not wise to jump into any premature conclusions before his talk with Moyes but if it happens, I mean if his transfer request gets real and guaranteed then we will lose something in our squad because Rooney is still a tangible talent and very much man of the big occasions, thats is almost certain”review the statistics”..anyway if he is convinced that he is no more a united player then we should try to fill in the big hole and that is absolutely a fantastic news for the likes of Welbeck and Chicarito as they will get more times to play, its pertinently essential however to spend the money wisely!hell, people calling him White Ando!!trust me that is plain wrong..with all respect of course.back to the issue, I think Thiago signing along with another striker or world class winger should fill the void..

    rooney and ando have no excuse imo. they are professional footballers who make millions per year and yet they cant stop eating mc donalds etc. fair enough maybe they have big frames and prone to gain weight easily, but so am I and I am in top fuckin notch condition so there are no excuses for the fat fuckers. as regards wellbeck…what the fuck is wrong with u are u blind? the man has amazing talent and skill, all he lacks is improvement on his finishing which im sure he will sort out! to compare him to heskey is sacrilege!! I believe in 5 years welbeck will be our best player as I reckon he has the most potential! even more than my beloved javier

  5. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Anyway, hoping something new will come in to fill the same old tedious debate gap, a signing preferable.

  6. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Heard city have missed out on isco, looks like has the right brain on him. Not that real madrid in terms of being a classless club are different but at least they have history.

  7. In David We Trust says:

    samuel – for me, both choices are has stupid as the next, the only reason barca and madrid get the players they want, because of the city and weather, if manchester was has hot and stunning as those 2 city’s, united would attract anyone.

  8. In David We Trust says:

    red joey – I think both fergie and rooney must shoulder the blame for the past few months over how the situation was handled. Rooney not keeping his fitness in check, and losing that spark and desire which has effected his form, and fergie trying to be a bit too clever for his own good, and playing guys like rooney out of position. I do not care how good any striker is, but playing players like rooney left right, and in midfield can mess with any players form, and obvious rooney looked to leave has he thought fergie was gonna be in-charge, I think Moyes can get the best out of rooney, and rediscover that form from last season when RVP and Rooney were on fire.

    I also feel, fergie seems to not know how to get the best out of rooney and kagwa, I actually feel Moyes can get the best of rooney and Kagwa. And hopefully with the signing of Thiago, guys like Kagwa and rooney can get more service, especially if guys like Thiago and zaha can settle, we could see some outstanding football next season

    I remember one Daniel Welbeck playing x2 blinders against Real Madrid last season. Scored a goal and kept Alonso quiet in both games until the boy Nani got sent off. Comparisons with Emile Heskey are way off the mark. How can he be expected to score more goals when he is played out of position out wide because our wingers were pretty poor last season. His statistics should be compared to wingers and not strikers.

    As for Roo being the white Ando and Ando being the black Roo? Tongue in cheek comments but every joke or flippant comment has some truth in it. Whether Roo and Ando are playing all the time or not they have a responsibility to keep themselves fit for when they are called upon. If they are susceptable to gaining weight then more so. Not doing so is just unproffessional. I don’t think not playing many games is a reasonable excuse.

  10. AlphaRS says:

    This team in a 4-2-3-1 would do just fine next season :D
    De Gea, Evra, Ferdinand, Vidic, Rafael, Carrick, Strootman, Ronaldo, Kagawa, Alcantara, Van Persie.

  11. red joey says:

    idwt I do agree with you but at the same time I feel rooney doesn’t deserve to play where he wants unless he has the work rate to match. I also feel that fergie did this just to show us how petulant rooney really is whilst having the last stab of the knife also.
    alphars I am in complete agreement with all you have said mate

  12. Rukky says:

    IDWT SAF is part to blame 4 Rooney’s situatiön? U’ve got to be kiddin me. SAF said a fit rooney wont get subd. When roo gashed his leg early in the season against fulham, i was kinda happy because i knew it would give kagawa a chance to impress because i knew he did not stand a chance againt rooney on a gud day. But come january, our wayne boy looked like he had been spending more time with ando’s kitchen. Its not a matter of playing games because if you’re not fit, you simply cant just play. And stop giving me weight prone talk.

  13. AlphaRS says:

    Wikipedia saying Strootman is a United player. Trolls. Ha.

  14. In David We Trust says:

    Rukky – I said partly, only so much can any player progress, when he is played on the left, the right, midfield. Rooney has not got the dribbling ability to play on the wings, he certainty has not got the ball retention to play in CM, so yes, I think fergie is partly to blame, and I did say rooney is too blame for his fitness problems. Kagwa is good, but he is no match for rooney, when rooney can get united 25 goals a season, Kagwa will get united around 12 to 14.So unless the club sign another world class forward to replace rooney’s goals, and you take into context RVP’s age, united will be a striker short

  15. lawson says:

    Hernandez may leave man utd because i don’t think that he will accept if rooney leaves that the club buy another forward instead of giving him a chance ! I also think that selling Nani would be a huge error !

  16. Bobby Charlton's Combover says:

    Great anticipation as always. Really clever for the second goal heading it downwards. Absolutely top finisher.
