VIDEO: Ole Recreates 99 Celebration After Closing In On League

Molde beat title rivals Rosenbourg 2-0 after Pape Diouf scored on the hour mark and Etzaz Hussain wrapped up the win in the fourth minute of injury time.

Ahead of kick off, Molde were second in the league on goal difference behind Rosenbourg. After leading the table for weeks, Molde lost and drew their two previous games, allowing Rosenbourg to catch up.

Molde are now three points clear at the top of the Norwegian league with three games left to play. If they were to win the league, this would be successive titles for them, having never previously won the league in their 100 year history until Ole lead them to glory last season.

    OFF TOPIC. HAHAHAHAHA I love the way Chelsea are playing this race row. I hope it comes out that clattenburg in fact did not say anything and that the chelsea players accused clattenburg of breaking his legs. Absolutely FANTASTIC. Chelsea about to be ripped to shreds in the press LMAOOO.

  2. kittz says:

    Off topic..
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/oct/29/10-talking-points-premier-league
    read what sachin nakrani wrote about berbatov…..

  3. ryan7 says:

    can’t help but laugh at arsenal for being down 3-0 to reading in the 22nd minute…

  4. ryan7 says:

    scratch that – 20th minute.

  5. redbilly says:

    ryan- maybe they are saving themselves for us

  6. ryan7 says:

    redbilly – they must be terrified then

  7. WeAreUnited says:

    Ronaldo is just wow, the technique he had wow.

    Maradona, Best, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo had that flair, and now Messi. These are those players that won games by themselves.

    You say Messi is nothing without Barca, but for me Barca is nothign without Messi.

    That being said. Ronaldo the phenom. I will never forget his hattrick against us. I felt sad and happy at the same time. Cause he was a genius.

    Ronaldinho touch wow :D

    a bit offtopic,

    Tomowrrow will be interestind, I am so much waiting for the game. DAmn it.

    2-0 for us. Welbeck and Hernandez will score 1 penalty and one offside goal hahah. I so much wish it would go like that, so Chelsea could moan more. hahaha

    seriously talking. 2-0 for us

  9. Proverb says:

    4-1 half-time fucking hell, no pride

  10. Hans says:

    Fucking hell, what injustice for Reading. The game should have ended long before they equalised.

    Let’s see what media cunts will make of this. We all know what would have happened had it been United!

  11. Diego says:

    The internet would be in meltdown had that just been us scoring that late. Nothing will be made of it. I actually went and looked at a Liverpool forum expecting to find 10 threads on how Arsenal are bribing the refs and how everything is fixed. Apparently, now the stress the fact that it is a MINIMUM of 4 added minutes. Funny how that isn’t the argument when it happens to us. They really are a retarded species.

  12. Hans says:

    Now Arse is leading.
    Lets get past Chelsea tomorrow night and then we’ll stuff them in the next round!

  13. DreadedRed says:

    ex Sky:

    Two unidentified England Under-21 players are among 12 people who have been charged by Serbian police for their part in the on-pitch brawl following the game in Krusevac earlier this month.

    Five Serbia U21 players and the assistant coaches of both teams have also been charged.

    The FA statement read:
    “Further to the Serbian police announcement regarding charging English Under-21 players and staff, the Football Association can confirm it has not received any formal notification of any charges filed by the Serbian authorities. We have not been made aware of any of the names of individuals connected with these charges and we therefore await further details and formal communication on these matters. Meanwhile we are in contact with the British Government for advice, as well as speaking with our colleagues at UEFA.”

    “Maradona, Best, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo had that flair, and now Messi. These are those players that won games by themselves.

    You say Messi is nothing without Barca, but for me Barca is nothign without Messi.”

    Football is a team game – none of those players win games by themselves. And far more players than those, and damn better ones than Ronaldinho, may be the difference or the star men, but that’s totally different.

    Barca is nothing without Messi? A good chunk of that Barca team are world and European champions with Spain. Again, it’s a team sport and Barcelona as a club made Messi – not the other way round.

  15. United Till I Die says:

    Slow day at RoM I take it? Ah well, this one caught my eye.

    @Bobby Charlton’s Combover

    Ask yourself mate, how is a society of black lawyers any different from a society of…. say….. Jewish lawyers? We can assume both would have restrictive terms on their membership, right? That means you’d have to be black (funnily enough) to be in the black lawyers society, and you’d have to be (you guessed it) Jewish to be a member of the Jewish lawyers society.

    But ffs don’t stop there!!!

    In a women’s society (You have to be a woman)

    In a youth society (You have to be a youth)

    In an English society? (I think you get the gist)

    Correct me if im wrong mate, but when people recently read about the existence of the black lawyers society there was a sudden cry of “Oh my Good God!!!”, “what could they possibly want with their own lawyers society????”

    The answer is simple.

    Every other sod has their own organisation so why should black lawyers be any different? Isn’t right of association something the English bang on about giving to the rest of the world? Oh and don’t forget the legal sector is probably the most institutionally racist in this country, according to the legal sector ITSELF.

    But the funny thing is, If women were complaining about not being able to join a mens club we’d call that Penile Envy wouldn’t we? Yeah? Well im not sure how I’d describe scepticism towards the black lawyer society tho haha.

    Hope this has helped in some way mate – but failing that just email them (the black lawyers) and ask them to justify their existence for you. Don’t beat around the bush either, ask them straight – “why do you black lawyers need your own society aye??” “Enquiring minds want to know” and see what response you get. If you ask me it sounds fucking daft when you say it out loud but there you go.

    If you do email im sure they’ll reply with a thorough response. They’re lawyers init?

  16. WeAreUnited says:

    @ahjs

    BETTER one than Ronaldinho? If that dude had cared like he did in his prime for a longer time, he would be tearing everyone apart.
    I bet you started watching football yesterday if you think Ronaldinho didn’t contribute that much and was the main man.

    Of course it’s a team game, who said it isn’t?? But in a team game, there’s always that one player who can produce by himself and win games. For example Maradona for Napoli. He won basically by himself. Don’t take it too literally.

    You being spoiled right now, Barca made Messi, we know that, duuu’h, but Messi is caring them. if a player scores 73 goals in a season and assists about 30, does that mean, he is not doing it? Look don’t be delusional my friend. Why David Villa doesn’t have those figures, Pedro or even Alexis Sanches who is a top player? why Barca doesn’t play for them?

    Because Barca knows who is their best player and in who they should rely on, if they want to win anything. Bujakasha.

    ANd mark my words, in 2014, Messi will tear the tournament apart.

    peace.

  17. WeAreUnited says:

    Messi last year, Argentina + Barcelona.

    73 games = 77 goals and 27 assists.

    Same we could say about Ronaldo, carrying Madrid by himself like he did for Portugal in the Euros.

    64 games = 67 goals and 16 assists.

    Now tell me that is not carrying the team? I think I made my point, and this is not a case of saying stats doesn’t mean anything. In this case, yes it does my friend.

  18. Marq says:

    I hope the FA has the balls to throw the book at Mikel, Luiz & Ramires if proven they are lying. As well as the Chelsea player who wanted to break someone’s leg. Chelsea players have a history of lying to try and get people into trouble and I won’t be surprised if they did it again. Surprised the episode of Cole & Terry lying to get Poll into trouble wasn’t brought up during his case. Would have erroded any credibility they have, if they had any in the first place

  19. mig78 says:

    We have seen spain used a so called 4-6-0 formation.
    But this is new. Arsenal and Reading used a 0-5-5 formation in the league cup game last night.
    How else one could explain the 7-5 result?
    Or was it a tennis match or something…damn.

  20. FletchTHEMAN says:

    dred/Marq Cheers lads

    Just catching up…..Not the first time Chelsea players have fabricated statements to ruin a refs career.
    Terry was fined 10K for that charade. Common features Terry and Cole :lol:

  21. Gandalf says:

    @marq and fletch – I can’t recall of this poll and terry incident at all – may be it wasn’t that big of the news at the time or I just missed it somehow.
    Wow, the unholy trinity of terry, cole and lampard retracted their statement!!! It these were united players, everyone would be talking about it even now and boo them at away ground.

  22. Bobby Charlton's combover says:

    @United till I die

    personally I couldn’t give a damn if they were The Society of Blue Arse Flie but surely you see the irony in a society that excludes white people from their society on the basis of their skin colour bringing the case against Clattenburg for rasicst abuse against a Chelsea player. Believe me, I’m not the only one to mention it but it is simply an observation not a judgement or a condemnation.

    I didn’t need a big lecture, I get the picture. This is like Goat’s comments all over again – people take things as they read them and seem unable to see past the words and grasp the irony or humour intended.

  23. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Bobby CCO, The bare ar@sed facts of the matter is that the queens enhlish is NOT sufficient to impart facial expressions, especially when reduced to the length of a tweet, or a typical response on a blog.

    This makes the smiley codes almost essential for the modern day blogger.

    For instance, my calling the manager and ar@e would earn me almost instantaneous condemnation on this site.

    But if I add ;) right after, then It barely gets a notice.

  24. Proverb says:

    Chavs fans still waxing lyrical about how the refs always favor us to everyone

    f refs are bought by Manchester United & Barcelona. Then it means EPL, LaLiga are fixed and the results are planned. So why do Arsenal, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Man City, Milan, etc fans watch a fixed league with so much passion? They should stop watching EPL if they think FA is Fergie Association. It only means either these fans don’t have a clue or their accusations aren’t true.

    And why is there no evidence against Sir Alex and Vilanova/Guardiola if they really bribe the refs? Does that mean Sir Alex has also bought the media all over the world? The chief executive of Premierleague and FA were Rick Parry and Brian Barwick during Ferguson’s reign at Man Utd, both of them were Liverpool fans/employees. Then how can Fergie run the FA and still there is no proof?

    Let’s clear the doubt some fans have in their minds. FIFA and FA are transparent organizations and will always be. Conspiracy theories are only an excuse.

    You should go die, fuck off
    Man utd has never and will never fixate a match.
    On saturday arsenal scored a much clear offside goal, although the media is trying all their very best to cover it up, get a grip people such excuses are out dated. Why in hell is chelsea accusing the referee for racism, that’s another daft excuse go die

    The Jewish society of lawyers was no doubt set up to try and marry two cultures. It was made not to seperate Jews from English natives rather to ease the passage of Jewish beliefs and their culture into British society. Im not defending Jewish society here but would like to clarify that the Jewish lawyers was to ease integration not to be a place only jewish lawyers can work. However I do see Judaism as a terrible scurge on society with their non inclusive laws – that being it is impossible for a non jewish male to become a jew, its a closed club and only women can be married in, something I find ugly, disrespectfull and racist.

    The English society is just that and as the common denominator is the fact they are all gathered under English laws thats what makes them different to anyone else, unless you are telling me that only anglo saxon prodestant whites are allowed in the english society then this argument holds no water.

    The Youth society is a society where you try and marry the old ruling classes with those not yet legal to vote but still feel they need a voice as 30 odd percent of all decisions made directly effect them.

    The woman society is an unfortunate one and does nothing to attain equality rather just distance themselves from the mainstream. They argue that there arent any females in top possitions and that pay isnt the same and the counter argument is the volume of female business and law degree post grads arent as many so quite expectantly do not offer the same size pool in which to pick from. This is an organisation based on trying to fast track equality which only goes to equal the numbers by promoting lesser candidates. See the two main political parties who actively say NO MALE APPLICANTS NEED APPLY as they try and fill a quota based on sex rather than ability. And we wonder why were in a reccession.

    The Black Lawyers society is an organisation that specialises in black cultural issues. Unfortunately I see no link in issues past to issues future. The only way equality comes about is if both sides hold no animosity and doesnt drag up the past at every oppertunity. Looking to the future rather than the past. See Palestine Israel issue. I can understand the hatred of this organisation as it is putting a nose up at English law and all they are trying to do by introducing a group who want to override the usual protest by forcing non issues for its own publicity. It is groups like this that put my back up. Im not racist, Im all inclusive WHERE the individual doesnt allign himself to a BELIEF that infringes on others. I have no problem in regards ethnicity, skin colour etc thats just plain stupid.
    However it is organisations like this that mean I cannot walk into a coffee house if a black barist works there incase he asks me how I like my coffee. I have to pick some weird and some believe wonderful concoction that I dont like because Im scared to say “black”. The same as in Sweden I cant buy anything in the half dosen as six in swedish is sex funny enough the same word as sex. Woman and suspect types take that as sexual harrasment and I just dont want the hassle.
    Thats why I live in the country. I buy most of my goods online and whatever food I need I go to an ordinary local shop for local people and dont get involved.

  26. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Mig – mcdermot will be absolutely pissed off. The thing with arsenal is, if you let them settle into rhythm and you let them knit passes together then they’ll carve you open, reading paid the price. When united play them, can’t afford to play open end to end football, need to be compact and solid through-out the team.

    The English language has more than enough expression and emotion in it to get the point across my friend. It has served as the main form of communication for hundreds of years long before blogging and tweeting was invented. The problem is the reader is now no longer an animal of respect and literary skills rather a wikipedia researcher who has read at best one novel in his life and that was probably Adrian Mole aged 13 and three quarters. The problem is maybe not the writer rather the reader. Now in days past the measure of a gentleman was to make everyone in his surroundings feel comfortable, whether that be people from different classes and cultures or people near and far BUT in a day when holding a door open makes you a sexist pig I no longer care about peoples feelings or how my texts can upset the apple cart. I hold the premise, if you dont like what you read DONT READ IT. Surely the all inclusive get offended at everything brigade can see that by being dismissive of someone who has differing views text isnt being all inclusive like they preach like some southern state church going republican (not bar tender), isnt really practicing what they preach.

  28. Bobby Charlton's combover says:

    @ Goat “I cannot walk into a coffee house if a black barist works there incase he asks me how I like my coffee”
    So you’re changing you’re behaviour so as not to upset the sensibilities of a black person which is essentially treating them differently because of their skin colour. Goat by not going into that coffee house you’re a rascist. I don’t know how to and don’t engage in the practice of including smileys but just in case smiley, smiley, haha. lol, wink, wink etc

  29. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Usually brush rumours aside but looks like all ones including nani.falls in the category of “there’s no smoke without fire”. I’ll be disappointed if he leaves, yet another top talent leaving before their prime. We know he’ll go and shine at another club. His signature for a new deal seemed inevitable, now it’s as slim as ever. Don’t see it happening.

  30. Marq says:

    There is a fine line between having the freedom of speech & maturity of listening, and that of irresponsible speech. Its like telling the person I’m going to curse you, if you don’t like it, don’t listen, but I’m going to curse you anyway, how you take it is your problem, I’m fine as long as I’m happy

  31. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Anyway, will be interesting to see what team fergie rolls out for the game and how the younger players will cope at the bridge. This as tough a challenge as they come for them. Their characters,and temprament will be called into question by a fantastic chelsea side who are superb regardless of who is in their team. United need another good start and to be on the on the front foot. Generally hope they pass this tough examination, would like the younger players to have more chance to shine.

  32. ahjs says:

    @WeAreUnited

    “BETTER one than Ronaldinho? If that dude had cared like he did in his prime for a longer time, he would be tearing everyone apart.
    I bet you started watching football yesterday if you think Ronaldinho didn’t contribute that much and was the main man.”

    Ifs and buts. Ronaldinho was the best around for a couple of years. I didn’t say he didn’t contribute that much, just that there have been better players and for longer. His legacy is minimal when compared to the likes of Zidane, Puskas, Cruyff, Garrincha and more.

    “You being spoiled right now, Barca made Messi, we know that, duuu’h, but Messi is caring them. if a player scores 73 goals in a season and assists about 30, does that mean, he is not doing it? Look don’t be delusional my friend. Why David Villa doesn’t have those figures, Pedro or even Alexis Sanches who is a top player? why Barca doesn’t play for them?”

    Because Messi is the central striker. I don’t doubt his importance, stats, or ability, but he doesn’t do it on his own.

    “ANd mark my words, in 2014, Messi will tear the tournament apart.”

    Out of his comfort zone, on the biggest stage, he has so far under-performed. We’ll see.

    “Messi last year, Argentina + Barcelona.

    73 games = 77 goals and 27 assists.

    Same we could say about Ronaldo, carrying Madrid by himself like he did for Portugal in the Euros.

    64 games = 67 goals and 16 assists.

    Now tell me that is not carrying the team? I think I made my point, and this is not a case of saying stats doesn’t mean anything. In this case, yes it does my friend.”

    Pele had similar stats, but no one says he carried Brazil. Gerd Muller holds the record for goals in a calendar year but no-one says he did it on his own, not with Beckebauer in the team. If a team is built to service its star players you have to give THE TEAM some credit when the individual flourishes to such an extent.

  33. Bobby Charlton's combover says:

    @samuel – Nani has been here for 5 years and if he goes I wouldn’t particularly miss him. I’m sure he’ll do well elsewhere like he has largely done at United but I’m also sure he´ll be as hot and cold as he’s been at United.

  34. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Goat, Well the current lot on this site might be gentlemen enough for you. But entry into these pages must be viewed as a revolving door of the local chippery rather than any higher estate. I try never to take offense and that is a good rule of thumb for most activities. But doubt many share my view.

    Anyone who thinks that the typical blog response goes far enough not to create more questions than it answers hasn’t been on this sight long enough. The humorist Garrison Keeler has been quoted as saying he doesn’t understand twitter or any other form of written language that prevents proper expression. Don’t fully agree with old Garrison, but then you might say he has a point.

    People seem to revel in tee’ing off on each other for reasons that will never be evident for me.

    Cheers

    Sobering thought my friend. In fact any racist that decides to change his outlook on coloured individuals by being more accepting is in fact changing his/her attitude towards that person BECAUSE of their skin colour that makes them racist. Theres no pleasing some people. Geees. wink wink nudge nudge, really smileys indeed, lol.

  36. Marq says:

    DDG
    Valencia Evans Wootton Buttner
    Nani Fletcher Scholes Welbeck
    Hernandez Rooney

    But I have a feeling Giggs will be in, taking Rooney’s place I suppose. And for RB, can’t really think of who is behind Rafael in the pecking order, I suppose its Jones if he is fit. Given what happened over the weekend, all eyes will be on this match, hope we can get through

  37. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Marq – Don’t see de gea starting this one, probably lindegaard or the “i’m not here to pick my nose” line will be rolled out. Again, giggs shouldn’t be starting this or united will be ovetwhelmed through the middle, he hasn’t got the tenacity to cope with an away tie, anderson will start. Fergie spoke about sticking to younger players, i hope he sticks to that as they’d benefit from a tough game like this, more so than giggs who should really be settling for a role as a sub really. Rooney won’t start either, got arsenal at home.

    Was that curse directed at me? Im pretty sure if the curse has as much thought and passion to it as your written texts then Im still fairly safe. lol

  39. samuel - united WE stand says:

    As for valencia at right back.. After playing just 3days ago and with arsenal coming up? I don’t see that happening, never seems right when he’s forced to play as a full back anyway. Marnick vermijl will start at right back, the experience would do him good.

  40. Goat Peticoat says:

    I would be unhappy to see Nani leave. As far as Im concerned the talent is there its just a bit miss guided and lacking in composure. Qualities that better with age so selling him now would be foolish. Lets see it this way he can only get better.
    My team for tonight.

    Lindegaard
    Rafael – Ferdinand – Evans – Buttner (Wootton to come on later to give Ferdinand a break)
    Fletcher – Carrick – Scholes
    Nani – Rooney – Young

  41. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Bobby – fair enough, all entitled to how we perceive a player. Still think he’s by some distance the most talented winger united have. Hot or cold, he turned up for the big games/he still can. Generally, he should be proud of his stay at united, it’s been full of highs and lows as most footballers go through in their careers (except messi who seems to play like a robot). I’m sure he’ll be laid a platform to succeed by the club that signs him. Maybe a younger player will be given a chance to succeed him, whether that be from the youth or bought, time will tell.

  42. Marq says:

    @Goat

    Not directed at anyone, no worries mate, we have our opinions sorted already. Its just a reflection on the current sensitive state of affairs. Everything gets blown up if you speak without thinking.

    On the lineup, I completely forgot about Anderson, haha, my bad. He should start. Vermijl didn’t play too well before, probably needs more game time. Good thing Cole is reprtedly injured, probably will give him more room to work with

    @ahjs

    I respect your opinion, cause you have made some good points about Ronaldinho for example and Messi yes.

    It’s just that, it’s not an excuse about Messi that he is an central striker.
    Look I get that, if there was Messi against 11 players. He could go past 5 players but never score. And the game is always 11vs11, I get that, but look, Messi does at his own when he gets the ball and goes past 4-5 players. That what I mean, no matter who is his team-mate.
    For example, last final against us, he ripped us apart, yes barca is Barca, and they have currently the best players in the world and also are as a team no doubt the best.

    And now also for Argentina, he has created so many goals, and opportunities and scored also so many goals. Anyway, In a kinda way we are both right :)

    peace. and let’s concentrate for this evenings game, cause if we were in “real” life, we could continue very long, and that’ not a bad thing, there’s no better thing than talk football for me, and listen other peoples opinions.

    UNITED!

    Before I put my line-up, this is what SAF said, “Obviously, we’ll make changes for Wednesday,” he informed MUTV. “The squad that played against Newcastle will be in place again. I think I will make some changes there but not a lot as we don’t want to lose down there anyway. We want to continue in the Cup but there will still be some changes.”

    And I guess, he meant when we played in the cup against them. The line-up was this:

    DDG
    Vermijl, M Keane, Wootton, Buttner;
    Fletcher, Cleverley, Anderson;
    Rooney, Welbeck, Hernandez

    If he makes changes, for me it will be this.

    DDG
    Rafael, Evans, Wootton, Buttner;
    Fletcher, Scholes, Anderson;
    Nani, Welbeck, Hernandez

    @Bobby Charltons Combover – talk about Irony, if you can see humour in Goats post but not mine thats your FUCK UP not mine pal. And Goat, that long post was unnecessary (and unread) and changes nothing worth changing. As you were, haha.

  46. United Till I Die says:

    I thought yesterdays posts were full of crap because it was a slow day. United are playing tonight so lets have more relevant comments on here yeah?

    The team for Newcastle was strong, but will it be strong enough at the Bridge?

  47. Marq says:

    I think that depends on who Chelsea play. The fact that Mata & Oscar were withdrawn early over the weekend suggest there is a chance they might be involved. Sturridge is certain to start, so our defenders must be on their toes

    I still fancy our attack, but if Scholes & Giggs start together, it could get ugly

    Great if he’s willing to stick by the same team that featured against newcastle in league cup
    It was a very strong line up, in the middle of the park specially, we were compact and ticking. Although we had problems defensively against the likes of cisse and on…
    Thankfully this time we face an opponent that will likely not cause major threat via high balls and crosses as we all know chelsea attack through the middle this days, and there will be no hazard no mata who chesea play we’ll be able to keep them in cech.

    Going by sir alex’s comment, I guess the changes he’s talking about is regarding our MF f, paul scholes may start and wayne to pose some threat in there young defense
    And ando aswell will definitely start, would like to see the combo of tom & jerry they have never disappointed and are still unbeaten…
    Without too much yada yada here’s my ideal line up:

    ————————-De gea

    Rafael—-evans—-wootton——-buttner

    ———–fletcher—-anderson———

    —tom clevz——wazzzzza———–danny

    ——————–chicharito
