    Is anyone lucky enough to have a ticket?
    Out of over 30 phone calls I received 2 maybe’s.
    No chance of getting one in our end. 
    I’m coming home on Sunday anyway. Not been to Manchester for 1 year and 5 months. 
    Dublin a cool place but there’s no place like home.
    If I get a ticket in their end does anyone know where I can get one of them blue plastic seat costumes? 
    I don’t want to get busted 

    Hats off to chelsea gutsy performance to say the least, certainly from a defensive aspect rode they luck at times but thats to be expected when playing barcelona, given the amount of possesion they do have. worth noting no side has won the Champons league back to back yet, not even this great Barcelona side, in my opinion sort of put’s the scouse busters theory to bed it was harder to win in their hey-day.

  5. Jeet says:

    So the first Barca team’s season is over.

    Hopefully the second Barca’s season will follow suit on Monday?

  6. Albert Ross says:

    Happy Birthday StR!

    Come on RoM! Let’s all click a few adds for our host, aye?

  7. CedarsDevil says:

    Mornings fuck bags

    Not that I am counting or excited by any means but kick off is a mere 130 hours away…..Take away approximately 40 hours sleep leaving 90 hours. About 45 hours or so will be spent drinking leaving another 45 to wait…..

    So as per my calculation kick off is two days away!!

  8. Albert Ross says:


    Thank you for your excellent rebuttal of my contention that Messi is overrated.

    I find your logic compelling.

    My contention was that as Ronaldo is better than Messi, rankings that rate Messi No. 1 and not No. 2 was overrating his position in the upper echelon of World players.

    Your rebuttal is that as Messi is rated No. 1 despite us believing Ronaldo to be better, we must accept that he is better for the purposes of the ranking; therefore he is not overrated.

    I now accept that your logic overpowers mine convincingly, and will not again make a claim that Messi is overrated based on my valuation of the player.

    Thanks Giggs12Gerrard0! For your time, your efforts, and especially your intentions. You disagreed with me, and expressed as much. You then considered my views carefully, and produced a response focussed on reaching fair consensus. You presented your rebuttal politely, without demeaning me or my expressed view. You have been a gentleman, with scholarly traits!

  9. CedarsDevil says:


    Glad you enjoyed those videos mate……Plenty more out there of course. We are blessed to love a club with such a rich history, tradition and pride

  10. Busby babes says:

    Cedars and there’s me thinking your not eagerly anticapting our visit to the Counsel Ground;-)

  11. CedarsDevil says:

    Busby babes

    Going mad mate, the seconds seem like minutes! Thank God for booze, only way to preserve what ever is left of my sanity!

  12. Busby babes says:

    To say we all looking forward to monday nite is an understatement, in your case m8 some more than others lol, in all honesty i beleive we’ll go there and win, i have no reservations about it.

  13. Albert Ross says:

    samuel and slim display no endearing, fair or gentle qualities on this thread.

    You were both snide and cowardly. These are traits you both display regularly.

    All nasty, with no desire for truth to spread.

    As always, you throw disparaging remarks and ignore logical responses.

    A poor show, no change there.

  14. Brigadier19 says:

    Cedars 40 hours sleep your optimistic, I walking round like a zombie, you’d think I’ve been caning the Bob Dillingers.

    Happy Birthday Scott Mae, keep up the sterling work.

    John Terry Crying in 3 Weeks, I’ll have a bit of that treacle.

  15. Redbilly says:

    Chelski + fuck all + Bitters + Never had fuck all= heaven

  16. Redbilly says:

    Happy birthday Scott .

  17. Redbilly says:

    Busby babes- my intuition says we will win. I think city will choke it . Stockports expectations being too much for them ( James 21 my apologies for the s port slur :-) ) .

  18. Albert Ross says:


    I forgot to mention that I actually don’t think Wes should have won in 2010. It was Clint’s Papii that suggested the possibility, and I hypothesised on that basis. Changes nothing of course. Your logic still applies effectively. When you’re right you’re right, and you are right.

  19. King Eric says:

    Clint – Cheers mate. That is THE biggest question mark over Barca. Will Pep even be there next season?

    Vishy – If you look closely mate you will see smartalex is still around in some capacity!!!

  20. King Eric says:

    Have to agree with our foul mouthwed gaz from this blog. To me it looks like Chelsea’s name is on the trophy.

  21. Jeet says:

    Get your asses on the new thread, you whatevers!

  22. bayoRed says:

    I love how some pundits latched on to the ”the end for Barca show”and how its all been coming given their managers antics at a press conference. Am sure if the penalty had gone in the Greatest ‘Barca’ ‘Messi’ song would have continued. Shows how spineless journos are and reminds us that we must not slip up or else they will be on our back with ”the worst united ever”,” players beyond their prime” and all of a sudden ”SAF will be past it ” blah bla blah……Am not too happy that it was the Rentboys that knocked them of thier perch, but I was getting sick of …. scratch that.. I’m still sick of the ”greatest team” nonsense, they had a good run but greatest is being over elaborate. Im glad Barca lost, Messi is no god! now Real Madrid and Ronaldo to WIN IT CONVINCINGLY .

    Is it Monday Yet?

  23. Devil310 says:

    @KE – how goes it man? Pleasure to meet you as well. Just flew back on Monday,, but I’m in Miami now for this week, then Cartagena next….you fellas going to the City game? I’ll try to watch it but work and all this traveling has kept me away from RoM and football all together. Hope you guys make it!

    Cracking up with all your comments, btw. Fucking Borecelona were unlucky to be honest, but I’m glad theyre out. Im still not sure if I want the virus in the final, but I certainly don’t want the Chavs lifting that trophy. Couldnt fucking stand lesbian-hair-cut cunt Terry lifting that cup with a face of entitlement. You didn’t play the final and fucked your team over in the semis by being a classless cunt!

  24. King Eric says:

    Devil310 – Hello mate. Glad you had a safe flight back mate and I bet it’s warmer where you are than here. Just a shame we couldn’t meet for a pint and a bigger shame you couldn’t see United get three points but at least you saw goals!! You looked familiar pal for some reason. Hear you are in the film industry!! What is it you do ? Take care and hope to see you back at OT in the not too distant future.

  25. Devil310 says:

    Thanks buddy. I surely will comeback and have a proper get together with you gents.

    I work in the TV industry to be precise. I oversee the programming of 3 cable channels that go out to Latin America. It’s a fun job to be honest. Having TVs in my office have allowed me to watch midweek games that air at noon in LA. So that’s the biggest perk.

    About the game, it was dissapointing seeing us drop points like that, but on the bigger scheme of things, seeing Scholesy move the ball around was simply priceless

  26. Phil Jones' Birdshit Streaks says:

    @gaz – wicked mate lol

  27. Red Devil says:

    Happy Birthday Scott….! :)

    King Eric..hello mate…are you referring to Albert Ross when you talk about smartalex?

    I felt it was him judging by some of the wordplay?

  28. Albert Ross says:

    … sometimes it feels as though I’m not really here … or there … or anywhere … but in my head.

  29. King Eric says:

    Red Devil – Hello mate. Absolutely . He denies it but it’s him without doubt!

  30. Albert Ross says:

    Just jemmied a few boxes, with a crow bar it’s open sesame once the drinks flow.

  31. Red Devil says:

    King Eric

    Cheers mate….just think our friend wants to remain anonymous for some time!

    Albert Ross

    Hope you’re doing fine mate…

  32. Messi Is Overrated says:

    messi is overrated when people says he;s the best player ever

    messi is overrated when people says he’s surpassing maradonna

    he cant even play well for his country. for what’s barca has achieved, its all due to xavi and iniesta. i think the media gets carried away sometimes, people who’s saying he’s the best player ever maybe have never known George Best, Di Stefano
