    I didn’t notice that they stuck us in a 3 game in 6 days situation straight away! Same crap they pulled last season. I think Fergie will rotate in general. Players need games, but they can’t play 3 games in 6 days at this stage of the season.

  2. aig alex is god says:

    the worst part is that after Birmingham at home we have 2 straight away games at burnley and Wigan.

    The schedule is complete rubbish when you look at other leagues.they are starting 2 weeks later and do not have an overload of games in christmas PL teams have too.

  3. Costas says:

    And instead of cutting the league down to 18 teams, they are thinking about a 39th game overseas. Genius….

    Schalke coach felix Magath claims Manchester United are keeping tabs on highly rated Gk Manuel Neuer.

    Fergie Plzz sign him up.he is class.,19528,11095_5488150,00.html

    I consider all Reds as part of a family. So when a family member tells another to ‘shut up’, it is meant in a light hearted way, not in a nasty way. Sorry if you took offense at that.

    I was just pointing out that this post was about Tosic scoring 2 goals for Serbia, and that he at least deserved credit for that, regardless of how he has done for us. I too have followed him in the reserves and have been far from impressed so far.

    Anyway hope that’s cleared that up.

    Appeal to SAF.
    I am a great Manchester United fan in Nigeria. I want to appeal to SAF to reconsider his stance on signing a top striker this summer. It is not in doubt that we (United) parade a cream of good strikers in Rooney, Berba, Tosic, Macheda and Welbeck. However, know assuredly that only Roo and Berba can stand their own in REAL big time competition. Others are only upcoming. SAF should remember the vulnerability of Rooney to collect RED card in any season. He is not injury proof too. Berba is still trying to find his footing.
    I also appeal to SAF to seal the Shalkar keeper deal before someone else does so that we do not come lammenting over him again

    Segun Adio

    @TonyStarks – Ok mate that’s cool. I see where you are coming from. I hope I will be allowed the freedom on this blog to just be honest in how I see things, even though they may be VERY different to others opinions. That’s fandom! I can assure you Tony, I am not deliberately trying to be hostile or wind up fellow Man United fans. But like I said, I got where you are coming from now – so thanks mate!

  8. King Eric says:

    Evans will be fine for Sunday. It was just a precaution to send him home and rest him for the start of the league.

    Meanwhile Skirtl reckons if the league was just the top 4 the dippers would win it!! Well its not you idiot there are 38 teams and that is why you DON’T win it.

  9. Isaidso says:

    Costas, I thought that 39th game (according to the English FA) had been a non starter, and was considered to be impossible!

  10. Isaidso says:

    @aigalexisgod – Mate it doesn’t matter about Wes Brown being brought straight back into the team after injury. He came back at Hull last season, was immediately the mainstay of our defence, and WAS AS ALWAYS IMMENSE. Wes is the type who can come back and seem to hit his game straight away. Vida I am not sure, because he is never really been out much, has he?

  11. Costas says:

    Morning KIng Eric! Maybe Skrtl would like it if we gave them the trophy right now? A stat by me: The last time we beat Arsenal and Liverpool home and away, was the last season we didn’t pick up any trophies.

    @Isaidso: Yeah i know mate. I was just saying that instead of looking to trim the schedule down, they had their minds on other impossible concepts.

  12. aig alex is god says:

    @King Eric

    The reason why united win the league is bcoz we get the results against the lesser teams.we convert the frustrating 0-0 draws inti 1-0 wins.thats what makes us champions.

    so this bald headed asshole shud keep his predictions to himself.if that is the case we wud have won it in 2007-08 wen we wanked the dippers at OT and anfield and only lost once against rentboys.

  13. Isaidso says:

    The LivePOO want Ryan Shawcross, and have approached Stoke to see if he’s available. Who can blame them, Shawcross is a great defender and had a stalwart of a season for Stoke. I hate the scousers obviously, so hope Shawcross doesn’t cross the divide!

  14. aig alex is god says:


    Agree mate but you cant take too many chances.that was Hull,this is Arsenal.let me be clear i m nt doubting Wes,he is immense for us,but the rustiness is there in any player wen he comes back after playing missing some games and vida has not playerd for over 2 months

    look at Rio yesterday.he made an shocking error.made a few poor backpasses and did not look 100% so it may take some time for vida and Brown to get back to their absolute best

  15. Costas says:

    Brown did play a bit in pre season so he is not that far behind on match practice. Brum give him a good chance to get some more. I don’t know what we should do with Vida though? Play him against Arsenal? Look at how that backfired when we played Rio against Barca.

  16. aig alex is god says:


    also how playing vidic backfired on that fatal night at san siro in we should go wid evans.he is a good Cb and deserves his chances.he did well at the san siro last year and also against he has the ability to deliver good performances in the big games.i wud definitely back him.Vida can play as a sub or a game or 2 for the reserves.

    brown did play a bit but i wud give him some more time so that he can cme in 100% and in good shape and touch.

  17. aig alex is god says:


    oh dear!we are not endearing ourselves with other clubs with such signings.we have to be more careful in the future and pay the cluba good compensation.

    any reason why we are specifically focusing on Italian youngsters?or is it only bcoz we can do so due to the loophole in their contracts.

  18. joero says:

    In regards to Tosic. I think his technical ability is not in question, he is fast, can dribble and can finish. Also, he’s probably one of the best at set pieces in the United squad. His only downside is his build, if that can be improved then there is no reason he can’t be a good player for United.

    The Neuer story interests me, he’s a quality shot stopper but then, so is Kuszczak. Does anyone know of his aerial ability? At 23 he certainly has potential and its not as though Foster has covered himself in glory recently…

    Also, apparently we have ‘poached’ another youngster from Italy. Michele Fornasier, a defender from Fiorentina. It seems Fiorentina are pissed and are going to complain to UEFA and report us.

  19. willierednut says:

    It seems easier to sign italian kids than english kids at the minute, if its legal then why not.

  20. joero says:

    @ AIG

    It’s because we can expliot the loop hole. Italian clubs can moan all they want but the changes need to be made to THEIR LAWS to stop this happening.

    UEFA won’t do anything, and neither will FIFA…

  21. aig alex is god says:


    Agree is not our fault.if you have the chance,why not take advantage of it.we should sign a few more promising ones :p

  22. Isaidso says:

    @aigalexisgod – the reason Rio and Barry gifted Holland their goals is because of one thing – the OBSESSION by defenders and MF’s in PASSING THE BALL BACK to the GK all the feckin time! Used to be a time when Rio and other players were renowned for being able to play their way out by good footballing ability. I know Rio has not lost that ability, so WHY this constant BORING backpassing to GK’s all the time? GK’s are more and more put under pressure by balls passed back to them that fall short far too often – total lunacy.

  23. Isaidso says:

    By the way, I would wager that more shots are passed backwards to GK’s than shots are made on scoring goals lol!

  24. shakshamboo says:

    Zoran looks to be more comfortable in a central role. this was my first impression when i first saw his videos. a more ronaldo like approach. i think we should not expect many good crosses from him. he can be played on the right flank just like messi but that trick mostly works in a 433 formation and i dont see us doing that this season.
