    Danny Welbeck is 100% Class.

    Born and Red!

  2. mig78 says:

    He got a twin too, by the name of Zaha. Reincarnation of Yorke-Cole partnership.

  3. kanchelskis says:


    Out of interest, would that comparison even come close to crossing your mind if they weren’t both black?

  4. Jay says:

    Welbeck and Zaha look nothing alike, might as well say Young and Welbeck look alike if that’s the case.

  5. mig78 says:

    @kanchelskis, what i had in mind was more in the line of how the arrival of yorke revived Cole’s career at United. Welbeck have been getting a lot of stick from our own fans particularly for his performance this season. For me the boy has got great talent, i just hope he would turn the corner and become the world beater that I know he’s capable of. So I’m wishing the arrival of Zaha would revive his fortune the way it did for Cole.

    I know it’s just a wishful thinking but then I’m just an ordinary fan.

    Color? Nop, never.

    Fair enough. Very good points made, and sorry for jumping to wrong conclusions about your first post!

  7. mig78 says:

    @kanchelskis, no worries, no offense taken.

    Maybe Zaha will come in and set the prem alight but don’t think we should put to much pressure on the lad his first season,what i’m reading might get sent out on loan again.Even if he isn’t will probably be eased into the team.Not being funny but see no connection to Yorke/Cole and certainly don’t think Danny’s career needs reviving,only thing he lacked last year was goals but was played out of position most of the year.

    Welbeck just needs that little extra to be the player he has potential to be. He has all the technical ability and blistering pace but the composure needs to come, he needs to work on his movement and finishing. He has the all round ability to be a top class player in my opinion and has the work ethic to match.

  10. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Regarding zaha, I just don’t know why the media are ushering him towards a loan spell, would that have been the case if palace failed to make it?. I think the.lad needs to be integrated into the united team straight away, he needs to get used to his surrounding and not stuck out on loan. In my view, he shouldn’t have massive pressure placed on him, he needs to be integrated gradually but the lad could be a revelation, he may justTt take to the big stage as quick as possible. He does have rough edges that need smoothing but I think when hopefully that all comes together, he’ll be a major threat in the premier league.

    Guess we never knew this side of the story Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba confronted Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson!,

  12. wayne says:

    Sick of Pogba cunt just needs to shut up because no one cares

  13. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Pogba is pretty obsessed with united, isn’t he? We are trying to move on and he needs to do the same but he seems to have a bitterness about the club.

  14. iDon says:

    I love this kid very much, hope for him to shine the coming years … go on Danny the boy

  15. King Eric says:

    Wayne and Samuel. Spot on lads. The cunt doesn’t know when to shut his cakehole. Having a pop at United at every turn. Fuck off Pogba you vile spitting prick, nobody gives a fuck. Ha some do though and moan to this day that we got rid.
