    Excellent goals, well done United!

    Nani is such a brilliant player, and he works hard too. He has really improved his use of men in space. Rooney scored another great technical goal, and shrugged off his early difficulties to turn in a good performance at last. Perhaps now he can relax about the Euros, he can be a force for us again.

    Now that’s doing it in style.

  3. King Eric says:

    Great goals. My mate just called who was at the game and said that Wolves the smalltime cunts were chanting “6-1 to the Champions”. Fucking pathetic. Thought we were Champions? Anyway almost as bad as Stoke City and their pathetic chanting at OT the last game of season when the rentboys hammered Wigan and they cheered every goal. Its true. These shithouse clubs are more concerned with United then their own teams.

  4. lordrt says:

    the sexy is almost back, just a few minor adjustments and the team will rock again

  5. Fred says:

    Happy days are here again! :)

  6. Costas says:

    Thumbs up!

  7. avishek says:

    i felt sorry for welbeck because of not getting a goal.he deserved it.although he was invisible for first couple of minutes but played very well after the first goal came.every run from him was full of promise and he showed that he has got tremendous sense of positioning as well.he came close to score though but didn’t get enough contact of the ball.but tried his heart out by getting away from defenders with pace and ball control.although his contributions were hindered by how well rooney and nani played in the attacking third..

  8. Sandeep1878 says:

    Zeki Fryers becomes the first Manchester United player to represent the club, having been born after the Premier League started.


    SIR ALEX FERGUSON ONCE SAID : “Only true champions come out and show their worth after defeat” !


    Nani: I wept like a kid in the dressing room in Basel.The dressing room was like a funeral.


  9. RedKamer says:

    I say it again, until Clev returns, play that boy Jones in midfield alongside Carrick. Jones does the box-to-box and Carrick intercepts. Once there is such a pair that completes each other, it’s up to the boys in attack to do the magic and be clinical.

  10. Sandeep1878 says:

    King Eric,

    what else can we expect from these small mentality clubs and fans pal?

    more than anything else in their lives, they want to see us go down the path to Abyss..

  12. WillieRedNut says:

    Cocks out again lads! 8) The sexy futbol is back! :lol:

    Seems Collymore is a fan of the Jones boy! :P

  13. Passe says:

    So Rooney managed to convert his second from that ridiculous position but the one at Basel was too hard? It is a funny old game…
    I’m really, really happy that Rooney stopped with the fucking lobs. One of his was absolutely ridiculous. Once he stopped with that shit he almost instantly scored.
    Nani is golden…

  14. Sandeep1878 says:

    yet a nother fitting reply by Sir Alex to Keano..

    ‘We will take a lot of stick from critics and even from people we thought were perhaps on our side,’ he said. ‘This was the right response. Some of the football was fantastic.’

  15. Captain Park says:

    Wonderful, took some of the pain away but I’m still recovering. Keep up the good work and I’ll my heart will heal much faster. :)

  16. smartalex says:

    It’s great when our hand is not forced with substitutions. It enables Sir Alex to give game time to those need, whether seeking better form, returning from injury or potentially needed. Fryers, Young and Macheda got time that recently has gone early replacements or tactical necessities.

  17. smartalex says:

    typo after typo, tut tut. I’m excited!

  18. Zelh says:

    So proud that Fryers came on for Evra.
    It’s fucking time that someone puts pressure on our frenchman. Has been skinned by so many players for far too long.

    Love him, but he’s not the same anymore.

  19. DeanO says:

    We weren’t good today we still lacked that killer instinct however it was nice to score a counter attacking goal we seem to have lost that subject Scott did you see your article from earlier in the month on is it acceptable to call united ‘man u’in the red issue? Credit to this website was given at the end of the peice .

  20. smartalex says:

    Evra ‘has been skinned by so many players for far too long’? Seriously?

    I think that’s nonsense. Does he get skinned often?

  21. denton davey says:

    avishek @ 18:52: “every run from him was full of promise and he showed that he has got tremendous sense of positioning as well.”

    Right on. Even though Chicharito is my current-favourite player, I think that when DannyTheLad and TheWayneBoy play together up-front that TheLads seem to be more dangerous. Danny’s diagonal runs were outstanding.

    I was happy to see Nani strut-his-stuff – when he’s on-song the guy is fantastic.

    AND, in view of my recent critical comments, I would be remiss not to say that Antonio Valencia was excellent – gettiing to the byeline and driving those trademark low, hard crosses, like the one that Nani re-directed in for the first goal. If he could/would use his left foot then Valencia would get twice as much space for the other foot which will be crucial when he comes up against a better left back.

    The only negative in the match was Chris Smalling’s repeated refusal to force Matt Jarvis onto his right foot – that led to their goal and Jarvis had Smalling’s guts-for-garters most of the match.

    Overall, it was a very impressive attacking performance – and the defending from the front was great to see after so many, recent timid/passive defensive performances.

  22. smartalex says:

    Unless by ‘skinned’ you mean references to his skin?

  23. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    @smartalex, In relation to your post in the last thread on Rooney and Nani, I had the exact same thought today as well. You see the celebration after both of Nani’s goals and he is getting swamped by team mates, Rooney is not be seen in the mess of bodies. Nearly every time Nani misplaces a pass, Rooney looks frustrated. Never mind Rooney also misses many of his touches as well. They only pass to each other as a last resort, if and only if all other options have been exhausted. There were many instances like that today as well and even Rooney’s first goal, the pass from Nani came later than it might’ve otherwise.

    I don’t know, maybe we are reading too much into it, but it just looks to me like they can’t stand each other.

    Anyways, we all know Teddy and Cole couldn’t stand each other but they played in the treble winning team alright. Doesn’t matter if they can be civil about it.

    On the same note, I fucking hated Rooney for blasting Jones after that amazing run. Fuck him, I mean this guy has just busted his gut out to run 60-70 yards and crossed to the near post. Yeah, the defender did his job and outmuscled Macheda at the front post. But come on, what the fuck was the reason to blast Jonesy like that. It wasn’t like the ball never came or it was misplaced, it just did not come where Rooney wanted it to. Fuck him. Seriously.

    Also, it feels like Rooney is one of the untouchables amongst the players. You hardly see anyone blasting him when he does mistakes – and there have been many of those in these few weeks. Yet, he is ready to blast everyone when they don’t do something he wants them to. Times like these, I miss Keano and Neville. They were the Captains of the team and would blast anyone, superstar or otherwise. This United team does not have “that” character and that is why some players are taking too much leeway of their apparent superstardom.

  24. redbilly says:

    King Eric someone once referredt to the german phrase Schadenfreude – joy at the misfortune / misery of others. I am the first to admit if dippers chelski or the arabian shites slip up,I feel happy. Fans such as Wolves can never compete on a truly equal footing so , they can only refer to what others have achieved to taunt us.

    Ist based on jealousy im afraid.

  25. denton davey says:

    WillieRedNut @ 19:04: “Seems Collymore is a fan of the Jones boy!”

    Who isn’t ? Phil Jones is a beast. I think it would be best for him to play that role, rather than suppressing his attacking-game by playing him in central defence.

    That pairing – Carrick and Jones – is bloody good: they’re both tall, strong, defensively savvy, and they seem to complement one another very well, too.

  26. Sandeep1878 says:


    Peersonally i feel we are reading too much into this Rooney-Nani thing..

    and about Roo’s reaction on Jonesy, not right but it happens in the heat of the moment..

    it was just out of that bloody moment, we cant pin point but yes it was indeed wrong..

    similar incident,

    Jonesy runs and makes that pass to Valencia and at the same time stops his runs, throws his hands in the air and asks for the ball, but Valnecia had different idea, cuts the defender, penetrates and gives a final pass across the face of the goal and there you go nani taps it in..

    we have seen this happen so many times, i mean out strikers getting (Roo, Berba) frustrated and throwing hands in the air or giveing a stare after poor balls from the wingers..

    I personally feel, back in dressing room, all these things are a matter of the past and they gel well again giving a pat on the back of each other…

  27. smartalex says:

    Sir Alex: Okay Patrice, i want you to run up there and knock the ball about with our left winger. Try get a couple of crosses in, and be a link back to the midfield when necessary. We’ll play a defensive minded right back, they’ll cover.

    Evra: Oi Oi Sir Alex!

    Armchair Fan: Hey! Where are you going? you’re a full back, you must stay back! Fuck Evra irritates me. We should buy Goeboebla Multhani, and should never have sold Pique! I say promote the youth. It’s what this club is built on.

  28. Paul Parker says:

    Still haven’t seen the game yet but those goals looked bloody quality – good to see Nani and Tony have a little cuddle after the third, still think they’re the best pair of wingers in Europe. Really glad to see Evans out there too, he’s got a bright future ahead of him and maybe this run of games was exactly what he needed.

    Esp glad Rooney took a different approach to this game. KE was right about Waynes head being with the England camp when it should’ve been with us the other night. Oh well, we’ve all had a moan and our star Striker still has 2 thirds of the season left to remind us all why we fell in love in the first place. Come on Wazza don’t fuck about!

    Smartalex – cheers for the insight into Dublin’s tact. Ex players know better than most how the ABUnati (Cyril Sneer Copyright) operates so they should guard their words carefully. I thought Ferguson’s final thoughts on the matter today were classy as fuck. I grew up with Keane, love the bloke, but the response from our manager has been bang on, as usual. United comes first.

    Fred – top posts on the other thread – this shit is fucking ridiculous. :lol:

    Right, enjoy your evening lads and ladettes, as Giles said this has been our best weekend for a bloody while now. Haven’t even seen the game yet and im stoked! Laters.

  29. Newsman says:

    Well done United!

  30. smartalex says:

    Balaji, I’m not sure it’s as acid as you fear, but I have felt that there is something there, particularly from Rooney’s side. I agree that it started last season, but then it was more frustration showing than a cold shoulder. I think Nani has come on leaps and bounds again this season. When we were (trying to) playing a more fluid game early doors it suited him, and particularly his decisions are better and appears less selfish (I say ‘appears’, but that’s another story) This being accepted, it seems strange that Rooney would be more anti now that Nani does less ‘by himself’ and integrates better.

    I surmised that Rooney was pissed at Nani winning Player’s POTY. I don’t know why.

  31. Zelh says:

    smartalex – you don’t get what I’m up to. I don’t mind if he’s up there with Nani/Young to double defenders, which is good. It’s about his attitude going back, when he loses the ball when going forward or being out of position at the back or just wingers passing him so easy.

    not even mentioning that he made look Obertan like the real deal.

  32. smartalex says:

    Cheers Paul Parker! Enjoy this winning evening!

  33. smartalex says:

    Zelh, I see. It’s when he makes a mistake that you don’t like it.

    You had said Evra ‘has been skinned by so many players for far too long’
    So I asked if you’re serious. Does he get skinned often? I don’t think so.

    Skinned normally means that a player passed by you easily. That never happens at left back when you’re out of position. The opponent has to ‘skin’ the player that has slotted in behind you as you attended to your duties.

    Has Evra been ‘skinned by so many players for far too long’ ?

  34. smartalex says:

    Not so hot at conversation, are you Zelh? Just kidding!
    Has he been ‘skinned by so many players for far too long’ or not ,my garrulous confederate?

  35. slim says:

    hahaha madrid score in the first minute

  36. FletchTHEMAN says:

    I like the all the goals because they came from great winger and forward play. Bad luck we didn’t get a couple more but the lads took their foot off the pedal a bit after the 4th. Really pleased for Valencia. Ran at their left back all day and owned him. TonyV is back.

  37. King Eric says:

    Obertan did absolutely fuck all a fortnight ago.

  38. Fred says:

    No change there then!

  39. shoes says:

    King Eric – at least they were ay the game to chant.

  40. smartalex says:

    Gabby is clearly one of the most consistent players in the League.

  41. James21 says:

    King Eric goes to the games. Its personal why he wasn’t there.

    The Wolves fans were shite, didn’t actually hear them much, just small groups. Until they scored. Never heard them sing 6-1 to the champions, but the usual Local team chant, but then who the fuck outside Wolverhampton would want to support them when Birmingham, West Brom and Villa are nearby. :)

  42. King Eric says:

    shoes – Fuck off you cunt,. If you read this blog I have my reasons for not being there. i.e My wife is 39 half weeks pregnant so cant risk the wrath of missing labour. Season ticket holder pal. N42. N3403. Row 32. 163 and 164 so FUCK YOU!

    James – Cheers mate.
