  6. Corea says:

    I am wondering why the camera with the microphone backed away so fast lol. pretty touchy cameraman :)
    a pity we don’t hear these things more often..

  7. xol says:

    Reminds me of Van Der Sar after a certain final. Anyone remember?

  8. Green n gold bazza says:

    I thought did I hear what I think I did haha, it was just before the break. Clasic

  9. parth_312 says:

    I think it should be “Kiko” as Fletch must be referring to Macheda.. Otherwise its hella confusing if they call Hernandez as Chico…

  10. AlphaRS says:

    And it was fcukin brilliant. I don’t care if he said and the whole world heard it.

  11. jellybean says:

    hahaha love it!

  12. RedGem says:

    The little lovable boy saved them from the hairdryer..midfield giving away the ball too much – dreadful!


  13. Sam Smith says:

    I thought he said Kiko too…either way they combined superbly for our goal, lets hope there’s a lot more to come from both of them this season!

  14. Sam Smith says:

    If you listen really carefully you can hear a ‘yes’ after Fletcher shouts, and it sounds more like Macheda since Hernandez is quite softly spoken!

  15. xol says:

    I’ll go for Kiko too.

  16. dozer says:

    fergie called him Chico too in the post match comments.
    It’s chico I think

  17. Dec the red says:

    macheda is in the picture, hes clearly talking to chicharito, why question scott? The man is a genius.

  18. Musvn says:

    I thought he yelled ‘Kiko’ because he was on the left of that camera with Berba

  19. discopogo says:

    he said “kiko well done with the ball”

  20. foSHIZZLE says:

    he never said any of those he sed ” FOshizzle my nizzle” ” we was on da bizzle” anyone “agrizzle” wiv me “grizzle”

  21. Toby says:

    Videos not appearing for me, is there a mirror anywhere?

  22. Toby Lee says:

    Got it, but yeah he says Kiko.

    Although when Kiko got the ball and instead of bombing forward towards goal he passed it, i thought WHY YOU DO THAT? but then GOOOOAL

  23. bigphil2003 says:

    Yeah it was definitely Kiko, and just right it was fucking brilliant!

  24. unitedtreble says:

    I think he says Chico. Fergie refered to him as Chico in the post-match interview as well you see.

  25. reyals says:

    link for people who can’t see it above

  26. cantona7 says:

    i also thot he was saying that to Macheda. His movement was brilliant the pass was perfect, and he was unfazed by the magnitude of the match at all.

  27. goodevil says:

    Chico and Kiko, the future.

  28. Gorse Hill Red says:

    Ha ha, the censors must off blown out their coffee!!

  29. Triggs says:

    I’m 90% sure he says Kiko.

    You can see Kiko shaking hands, then he goes out of the shot on the left, Fletch approaches the camera from the right and shouts after him, “Kiko!”

    But who cares, they both did well on the goal.

  30. Zulu-Malta says:

    Yes….. it was FUCKEN BRILIANT Chico ! Another night to treasure in our briliant history !

  31. kel says:

    I like Fletcher as a captain and this lets me have more confidence that he is the right man. It’s exactly what Keane would do!!! Shocking but happy. Hahaaa

  32. jespermoses says:

    He said Kiko….ITV apologised for it afterwards!!…hilarious.

  33. hammons says:

    They way Chicharito killed the momentum of the pass with his first touch was Ronaldo-esque against Newcastle (6-0 at home in 2008/09). Not comparing the two, but very similar touches and awareness to finish off the move.

  34. whitefieldred says:

    yeah, he was praising Kiko for passing and not trying to go alone like he normally would, he needs that so that he’ll do more of the right thing.

    Top man Kiko! Great goal Chico!

  35. denton davey says:

    If we’ve come to praise DarrenFletcherinho (football genius) then let’s not overlook his stunning 40-yard diagonal pass to DimitarBerbatov that freed the lone striker for a run/shot at goal. AND, let us not forget that Fletcherinho did the same thing in the recent victory against LiverPoo when he sent the ball forty (or maybe even fifty) yards to Nani from where the pass that led to Dimmy’s brilliant second goal originated. People too often overlook his “positive” attributes and only see a box-to-box midfield destroyer. That’s too bad for “people”, they need to pay more attention to the evidence in front of their eyes.

  36. north country boy says:

    He definitely says Kiko. Shame it wasn’t on the BBC!

  37. Danillaco says:

    I think it was Chico, and not Kiko. Because Kiko was out on the left and Fletcher was obviously refering to someone on the right, (United attacking side, and from where Chicharito was returning).

  38. redmojo says:

    Lol I heard that! It was hilarious. Love fletch.

  39. redyoda says:

    Fletch sounded a lot like Roy Keane there, future United captain?

  40. dgt says:

    Definately says Kiko.

    Though I tend to refer to Chicarito as Chico by accident. Chicarito and Hernandez are too cumbersome to say in normal conversation so I think I’ll just start calling him Chico.

  41. AgoalSaGoal says:

    NOPE he deffo says chico, thats what they call him ive heard hernandez being called that on loads of post match and pre match interviews

  42. Dilardo says:

    5 match ban coming up for Fletch …
