    Van THE Man..

  6. Giles Oakley says:

    We all just knew what this magical sequence was going to end with. Brilliant. I remember being right behind the goal at Fulham when Van the Man played for the Londoners and he saved an ‘unstoppable’ volley from Ryan Giggs (in a 3-2 win for United). I thought then, this guy is very far from ‘past it’. Sign him up, Fergie, sign him up! If only he had done so a little earlier…

  7. bbabyj says:

    Absolutely fantastic goalkeeper. He has saved so many points for us.

  8. ancha says:

    I am proud to say…i had the pleasure of watching him play at OT

    it will be really hard to get a goalie of his standard…love him!

  15. RedMancundonian says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY EDWIN VAN DER SAR !!!!!! I’ll admit tears watered my eyes because of the last save. I am the happiest because we have the best goalkeeper in the world ever, and I am saddest because we will never have another one as good as him, it’s impossible. VIVA EDWIN VAN DER SAR !!!!!!

  16. manc_sam says:

    That anelka pen is one of the greatest moments in my life! Viva Red Army

  17. Stuart says:

    Get me how happy Rooney is when he win Champions League

  18. anderson08 says:

    Happy b-day Van Der Sar, my you grace us as a goalkeeper many many years. Yeah he can :D

  19. RedLife says:

    I remember watching him at Ajax, i said to my old fella, we should sign him. We had the great dane, who was a little bit better imo, but he was older and when his time was up, Edwin would be the perfect replacement. Well it turned out I was right for once, he has been the best keeper since Pete. We should have signed him earlier.

    Happy Birthday Edwin.

  20. Vishakh says:

    Van Der Sar= Legend Forever.
    That Anelka save will remain with me for eternity- the hand movements pointing which way, the save, the reaction- amazing

  21. TheSevenOfOT says:

    One of the greatest goalkeepers of all time . We are honoured to have had you with us . just amazing. Happy Birthday Edwin !!

  22. Dr.Hannibal says:

  24. Dr.Hannibal says:

  25. pat rice says:

    he is a true legend

  26. malayred says:

    Can we replace him when he’s gone?

  27. Lovin' United says:

    Happy Birthday Edwin!

    Thanks for the saves!

  28. dela says:

    Happy Birthday! Hope you make your big day all the more special with a clean sheet against the Spurs.

  29. Kings says:

    West Ham away in the Quarter-Final.

  30. Kings says:

    World Class VDS – always felt we should have signed him back in 1999 to replace the great Dane – would have saved all that heartache with the clowns we bought before getting this great man in 2005.

  31. bchilds says:


    I agree, we would have more trophies in the museum had VDS replaced Schmeichel rather than Bosnich, Howard, Carroll, Taibi, Barthez etc etc etc etc!

  32. GLAZERS---OUT!!!!! says:

    what a legend….. In our history-One of our best keepers

  33. thedonmassawe says:

    Next up Van De Gea

  34. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    He is very much like Scholes a lot I feel. He is this very brooding, silent type who rarely says a lot and doesn’t grab too much attention for himself. IMO, he is in direct contrast to The Great Dane. It really says a lot when we can have two different characters on the field in one position, but still be regarded as awesome legends in their own right.

    I still regard that save off Anelka as my favorite Manchester United moment. It was great because I started supporting only in 2000, so was just late for the most amazing night of 99. It was my first CL victory as a fan and it came off a wonderful save by Edwin. Thanks for that amazing moment and millions of more in the past and still to come, Edwin!

  35. United4eva says:

    What a difference a quality keeper makes

  36. willierednut says:

    I never really rated VDS that much, before he came to United, but he’s been a class keeper for United.

  37. SmartAlex says:

    Happy Birthday Edwin!
    Many Happy Clean Sheets!

  38. ManchestHairUnited says:


  39. Fze123 says:

    Wish we had signed him earlier instead of experiementing with Howard, that ended in disaster. Happy Birthday VDS! Hopefully he can extend his Utd career to a further 2 years, he is still one of the best at what he does.
