    Right, back to football….. I thought Rafael had a decent game, loved his link up play with TV and he did make a few ‘Brazilian’ type moves as he took on people.

    Also nice to see the media’s champions elect being held at home, I said before they will not last the pace.

    The bitters will be feeling the pressure now, a situation they have never been in before and will eventually collapse, mark my words. Fergie will wait for the right moment to pounce and then Mancini will do a ‘Keegan’

    Great decision making by the manager and great performance from the lads.
    Carrick is boy wonder all of a sudden. Keep it up Mikey.
    Scholes is no legend, he is a footballing GOD.
    Valencia has been awesome recently.
    Rooney done well, missed two pens now consecutively perhaps its time to give them to Nani or Carrick.

    We have done well to bounce back, no game is easy in this league and we should go on a good run of form now. Our away form has been stunning, hope we win all the toughies coming up.

    Yes Rio you Granny keep the good work up ;)
    Hope Welbeck is ready for the next game, we’ll need some of his magic to beat Arsenal.

    Suprised Rafa played, lets hope he stays fit and doesn;t dislocated something.

    Really happy about this win, its Scholes, he puts a smile on everyones face, I missed him

    Thought you’d like it pal. Legend of a band for a legend bloke. Great speaking to you today. Can’t wait for march to give you some drinking lessons.
    Your not wrong, Alex is a fucking legend, funny as fuck. That bloke deserves a stage to perform on. I hope we see more of him. King Eric, if you’re on, send him our love. Loved the fact we bumped into King Eric with a book! East stand material right there!!

    Manchester United vs Bolton 3:0 – 23 minute highlights

    Well done United!

    Good ol Sholesy!!! one for the haters!!!!!!

  8. izzy says:

    The only downside is that Welbeck pull his hamstring again????? this is ridiculous!!! reminds me of SAHA…

  9. izzy says:

    Gibson has to go if SAF was to bring in Pogba into the squad more regularly… makes sense since we need him in the long term…. Pogba will be on the bench every week now….

  10. Costas says:

    Until he leaves in the summer.

  11. izzy says:

    Anybody else notice that the ref had a part to play in Carrick’s brilliant strike? The ref provided him with a great shadow dummy run…. LOL

  12. Costas says:

    Or even sooner. Until Ando is back.

  13. CedarsDevil says:


    The mere sight of him in sunglasses gave it away, I was sure he is funny as fuck! These things are just apparent….. Great talking to you fellas as well.

    Oh wait, is this a United blog or a dating site? Getting confused here


    Bonne soirée mon amour…. I bet you enjoyed the win as much as I did

    Welbeck, Carrick and Rafael were terrific…Danny is someone I’ve been raving about for a long time now, and I’m chuffed to bits how he’s coming along. Good finish, takes him up to 8 for the season…but more than that, it’s his all round game which is fantastic. Although he’s not as clinical as Chicharito, or as silky as Berba….he still combines their best aspects together. The pace & workrate of Hernandez + the ability to hold up the ball like Berba + a whole heap more….power, energy, link up play, he just makes us a much more vibrant team going forward.

    Rafael also gives us a new dimension at right back, energy is a key word again. Going forward he’s better than Smalling, and providing he stays fit, he should be our main RB. But it’s interesting to see what Fergie does at centre back……..Smalling is a superior player to Evans…..but we look really solid with Rio and Evans at the back, countless games they’ve played together this season, and they’ve produced some of our best defensive displays. After Rio + Vidic, Rio+ Evans has been our most reliable partnership so far. And as the old adage goes….the best players don’t always make the best TEAM….the same can apply to centre back partnerships….

    Rooney was patchy, some good moments, some really poor moments….but he’s a matchwinner….and matchwinners produce the goods even when they’re playing poorly – 2 assists does me fine.

    As for this whole Lindegaard vs De Gea debate that goes on here……..people constantly say that Lindegaard got his clean sheets against weaker teams…but was De Gea not playing at home against Blackburn Rovers when he made an error?
    And yes, he had Carrick playing at centre back in front of him in that match….but a few days prior to that against Wigan – Lindegaard was in goal, and he also had Carrick at centre back (plus Evra in the second half)…..and he kept a clean sheet. So that argument doesn’t hold weight IMO.

    Saying that, I do believe De Gea will be our long term number 1 – but at the moment, Lindegaard looks a far better bet, so we need to give him a run

  15. izzy says:

    @Costas, a little optimism please! lol…

  16. Sparkz says:

    Btw, someone explain the concept of concussion to me lol? How did Rio play the last 15 and not remember them?? Unless it was delayed concussion and it hit him AFTER the match.

    And did I mention how over the moon I was to see my favourite player of all time getting on the score sheet again? Last Sunday was the best day of 2012 so far for me…..the legend returning AND us beating City.
    Today was right up there as well, never thought I’d see him celebrating a goal again!

  17. smartalex says:

    CedarsDevil – I did enjoy it, and I’m still enjoying it! When Scholes scored I went beserk, and haven’t come back down to earth yet! To Paul Scholes! Salute!

  18. Costas says:


    It’s not about being optimistic. Gibson left because we didn’t want to lose him for nothing next summer. It had little or nothing to do with Pogba. He isn’t ready yet imo and that’s why Scholes returned. ;)

  19. FletchTHEMAN says:

    United.George. Cheers mate. I was impressed with Everton. They were very unlucky not to be in the lead in the first half. Kept it wide and no long ball stuff. Chalked full of United quality as well. Wish them all the luck in their fixtures, particularly v the other top sides that they are against in the next couple of months.

  20. King Eric says:

    Gotta agree with Orez. Thought Rooney was poor today. It wasn’t his assist for Dannys goal. It came off wheater. What a fucking ball by Carrick first half and what a finish with his left peg. The lad is in top form at present. Welbeck is just fucking quality. Tony was superb and put some belting crosses in. Back to his best of late. Decent performance all round really. Scholes you legend. Great movement and finish.

    Scott Parker “its difficult when you are at the top because everyone wants to beat you“. Fuck off you silly cockney cunt. Last time I looked they were third. Welcome to the real world son where every game United play is the oppositions cup final. Those Spurs lot really are believing their own hype. Do one.

    Commentator on rentboy game “to all intents and purposes its Torres s goal“. What? He hit the fucking bar the daft wankers. NEVER in a single season have I heard such piffle.

    Well done United!

  21. King Eric says:

    Cedars. Hello mate. Saw your picture. You look one big motherfucker my friend. Top lad. Oh that Alex is fucking insane. Starting sitting behind me and my old man couple of seasons back and he drove us mad. Doesn’t give a fuck. Some of the stuff he shouts is cringeworthy. However over the last season and half he has become a great lad and makes the day. A nutter. A good heart though. Bought Tom a full United kit and a little United monkey thing. Great meeting Mike and James and Mike 2 or Cuzzer. All superb lads. Anyone else who goes get in touch and get all Mancunia in Sam Platts. Take care Cedars.

  22. CedarsDevil says:

    King Eric

    Cheers pal, I was gutted I did not get the chance to speak with you on the phone yesterday, had a great laugh with Mike and James……Next time for sure.

    Do pass on a picture of Tom in his United gear to the lads and they will email it to me. Should be a cracker.

  23. Booch says:

    Hi Everyone Utd 2 be champions again

  24. ScholesForGoals says:


    Sam Platts… talk about volume, they’d give the Blaize a good run for their money. Those boys in Platts can fucking sing, mugging off scousers and city. My best pre-match drinking experience near the ground.

    Wouldn’t mind meeting up with some RoM boys pre-game, I’m not gonna be there for the Stoke game but am bang up for a few pints for the dippers game if any other like minded posters are going to be there?

    Anyone know how Welbeck is and if he’s going to be ok for the Arse game? Carrick and Valencia bossed that. Good to hear us loud as fuck against the Wanderers at the weekend. Scholes. Your awesomeness doesn’t even surprise me anymore! Legend, nuff said.
