    Can’t see Arsenal lasting the pace, they always bottle it.

  2. Ryandunny says:

    Lads being asked to contribute for a book and I was thinking of using this article with a few changes…

    If your a United fan not from Manchester its more for your eyes!

  3. willierednut says:

    CedarsDevil – A little dickie bird told me it’s your birthday?

  4. Zelh says:

    Fabianski seems to be out for the rest of the season.
    Arsenal fucked up again.

  5. CedarsDevil says:


    How on earth did you know that?? It is actually ;-)

  6. KING ERIC BG says:

    Thats really cool, Ryandunny! Good job!

    BTW about Rooney: dont worry, I’m sure soon enough he will be presented with opportunity to show his true colours… And it will be up to him, I hope he will manage to reestablish himself as a manc, but I cant be sure right now. Yet, I’ll support him, especially after such a performances. Because there’s no doubt we’ll need him. And I guess Berbatov will have something to do with his eventual reabilitation. Because Berba is definetely a 442 striker and he NEEDS a world class partner. And also it seems Sir Alex himself put on a lot of weight in that partnership, which was not the case prev. seasons…

    CedarsDevil – I’ve got magic powers lol. I noticed your user name in the forum, happy birthday mate.

  8. jay says:

    I can’t celebrate Rooney’s goals like I used to before I would of jumped up and down like a crazed nutter but now it was very, very tame.

  9. CedarsDevil says:


    Cheers mate, I actually forgot about the forum registration.. I never post there. You had me worried for a minute ! lol

    Thanks for the wishes buddy, seems I have a ‘surprise’ party coming up! lol

  10. King Eric says:

    Goat – Classic at 13.22.

  11. King Eric says:

    Cedars – Happy Birthday mate!

    James – No as much as I despise the fuckers they are no threat mate. A scouse win all day long for me. Just to see that trannys fucking face. But then it would be great to see the dippers faces if Torres does score and it all kicks off. Hhmm tough one. No definitely a dippers win.

    I think Torres has been a fucking disgrace. His move to the rentboys was always on as thats the only game he turned up in this season. But then he always does. To say it would be his destiny to score against them 24 hours after leaving is a shite thing to do in my opinion. Funny laughing at the mickey’s though!!

  12. CedarsDevil says:

    King Eric

    Thanks for the wishes mate

  13. parryheid says:

    Seems if the rentboys win their cup replay against Everton the game against us will be put back till 2 or three games before the end of the season.Anyone know about this.if true I like this.

  14. denton davey says:

    King Eric @ 15:28: “I think Torres has been a fucking disgrace. His move to the rentboys was always on as thats the only game he turned up in this season.”

    What I find curious about the ABU press is that they seem to think that because the LadyBoy ONCE got the better of Nemanja Vidic (several years ago) that he ALWAYS had his way with UTD’s defence. It’s not true – and their wishing for it to be so doesn’t change the facts but, like the FSW, they don’t let the facts get in the way of “fachts”.

    Mostly, though, I ignore the ABU press – except when they’re having to choke on their own bile. Otherwise, they simply can accept the fact that “Not Arrogant, Just Better” is a fair assessment of the dominance that UTD have exerted in the EPL since its formation – eleven (going on twelve) out of 18/19 is tough for them to swallow. It’s a joy to watch them choking. No need to take them at all seriously.

  15. DAVE RED says:

    United made a signing after all in the transfer window !! – Rooneys ‘Mojo’

  16. fergie is the boss says:

    King Eric – I am sure he said he was a liverpool fan, they keep saying it is on his tatoo

    torres 50 million carrol 35 million bolleteli 30 million dzeko 27 million chico 7 million

  17. willierednut says:

    Hernandez would’ve cost a lot more, if United hadn’t of done the deal, before the WC. On the bitch, he gives Vidic the most problems, out of all the strikers, he’s ever faced. Vidic has played him well, the last few games, but he’ll still be a handful, when we face Chelsea.

  18. FletchTHEMAN says:

    @RED Dave
    HA HA HA HA cheers mate.

    United transfer activity

    Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
    Shine on you crazy diamond.
    Now there’s a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
    Shine on you crazy diamond.
    You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
    blown on the steel breeze.
    Come on you target for faraway laughter,
    come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
    You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
    Shine on you crazy diamond.
    Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
    Shine on you crazy diamond.
    Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
    rode on the steel breeze.
    Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
    come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

    Happy Birthday!

  22. theboogeyman says:

    Happy birthday Cedars!

    Smartalex- Gotta love Floyd.

  23. Zibbie says:

    Torres 50 million, Carroll 35 million Suarez 22 million ROONEYS MOJO PRICELESS!!!!!
    Unbeaten with Rooney being a shadow of himself. Now if he can find his game with Nani’s game becoming world class on a more consistent basis and if Velencia comes on for the puss toward silverware as well as Parks return the 19 th title is in sight!!!! Get the FA cup as well and if Barca can be avoided until a possible CL final!??!!??!?!?

  24. MG says:


    To infinity and beyond!

    Happy Birthday…

  25. RED SAM says:

    There are some footballers who
    we can all agree about. Lionel
    Messi, for example. There can ’t
    be any serious observer who
    would think he ’s over-rated. But
    such unanimity is very rare in
    Split opinion is much more
    common and when it comes to
    Dimitar Berbatov, rarely can a
    player have divided opinion
    with such a gulf.
    There are two armed camps
    when it comes to the languid
    Bulgarian; those who think he’s
    a brilliant and mercurial talent,
    and there are those who think
    he ’s lazy, uncommitted and far
    too inconsistent.
    Which side you are on probably
    depends on how you like to see
    football played. If you ’re a fan
    of run-all-day players whose
    contribution is measured by
    perspiration, Berbatov will
    annoy the hell out of you
    because that ’s not his game at
    all. Then again, why should it be?
    You don ’t employ an artist to be
    a coal miner do you?
    Much of what Berbatov does
    goes unnoticed by those who
    just want to see a man running
    around like mad dog. His ability
    to find space for himself and
    others, while not a
    demonstrative art form, is
    nonetheless a form of brilliance.
    This year he ’s added goals to his
    creative game, and that will
    always get you more fans but
    the majority opinion, including
    that of his manager it would
    seem, is that he is a luxury
    player and not one for the blood
    and snot battles in the trenches.
    This might actually be true
    however, as a neutral who just
    loves to see a footballer with
    craft and guile, it doesn ’t
    concern me. I’ve always loved
    Berbatov because he is a
    footballer like very few
    footballers. He has an air of
    insouciance and when at the
    peak of his form, an
    understanding and ability that is
    second to none. The way he can
    hit a pass or a shot with the
    outside of his foot is to watch a
    true artist at work.
    The best footballers always
    seem to have time and space; as
    though the universe moves
    slower for them than for the
    mere mortals who surround
    hem, and Berbatov has always
    had that unhurried quality.
    Granted, he won ’t be Mr
    Consistent for any side. He
    won ’t give you a seven out ten
    performance week after week,
    but such predictability is for
    lesser talents.
    In some ways he ’s a throw back
    to the days when football was
    more about skill than athleticism.
    When it was a slower game full
    of men who had talent to burn,
    looking to beat the opposition
    with flair and style. The likes of
    Rodney Marsh, Stan Bowles,
    Eddie Gray and even George
    Best, often created similarly
    divided opinion. Like Berbatov
    they would blow hot and cold
    but then again, I ’d argue it is to
    such rare talents that we turn
    for the genuine brilliance in
    football; the very inconsistency
    an expression of the precarious,
    the difficult nature of the game
    they instinctively want to play.
    Berbatov is a football artist. His
    art may never appeal to the
    masses but perhaps that is
    always the case with real

    If theboogeyman loves Floyd, everyone loves Floyd!

    It’s great that Hargo’s in the squad. Also many presumed the demise of Gary Neville, but you can’t keep a RedNev down.

  27. mattbw7 says:

    Face it goatinautd shirt your original Rooney comments where nothing more than a pointless dig, I dont love him either but jumping everything he says or does in a negative fashion is counterproductive. As for his comments its pretty plain to see that Chelsea have been strengthened by their acquisitions and seeing as they did the double over us last year they a the biggest threat to out title.

  35. smartalex says:

    Thank you Gary Neville.
    Goodbye Gary Neville, Defender, Winner, Captain, Supporter.
    Hello Gary Neville, Coach, Winner, Leader, Supporter!

    Gary Neville is a Red!

  36. real red devil says:

    @Ryandunny i really loved your blog mate..i am a foreign united supporter although i live in uk right now.i come from a country which hardly have a football history.but i started to support united from my childhood and we had acess to the epl through tele at first it was a rivalry between united me and my younger bro bcse he supported chelski when i get to knew more about united’s history i become more and more involved with this club.i wont give up my love for united for anything eventhough i havent visited OT yet.

  37. Dave Malaysia says:

    Gary Neville retires. Legend. Wish he had completed the season with trophys and then ride off into the sunset.

    I hope he becomes a coach at Manutd. There is one senior vacancy,reserve team boss.At any capacity I hope he stays.
    I hope u guys dont get carried away,we stillhave some tough games coming up. Having faith and beleving is different from some of the stuff I see here.

    Rooney was right in his comments,with torres chelsea are again a threat,having been off balance for awhile.

    Rooney is back now ,let the goals flow,assists flow,overall hardwork and defensve duties continue at the highest level.

  38. Dave Malaysia says:

    Birmingham winning their battle at 3.45 am Malaysian time today.

  39. Dela says:

    Little disappointed as a daily RoM reader and a life-long United fan that its been nearly 24 hours since the kick off vs. Aston Villa and RoM published no reaction to our victory. I just feel if Berba scored two and not Rooney, we’d have seen something by now. And in my opinion, that’s pretty messed up. I mean I love it here despite a lot of the bias that I’ve had to learn to ignore (green and gold etc.) but this just feels wrong. Quick to criticize, slow as a snail to give credit where its due for Rooney, it’s exactly like Berba haters have behaved.

    Or maybe I’m wrong, maybe it’s just delayed but considering there are new items on the blog since.. I’m just disappointed.

  40. CedarsDevil says:

    Thanks for all the birthday wishers………. Really appreciated guys

  41. CedarsDevil says:


    One of my all time favourite songs there mate, many thanks

  42. smartalex says:

    Shine on CedarsDiamond.

  43. King Eric says:

    Dela – I thought something similar mate, no reaction as yet to the Villa win.



    im not going to get upset yet, im giving scott the benefit of the doubt that he is just busy and hasnt had time for the write up yet, then the GNev stuff went on, which is obviously more important.

    though if we dont get a villa write up, it truly would be dissapointing and hypocritical seeing how much he has bashed the berba haters. love him or hate him, wayne rooney is a red and was crucial in our win.

  45. smartalex says:

    5 Quick Reactions to the Villa game:

    1: Gary Neville wasn’t playing.
