Vidic: I Knew Special United Would Challenge Without Me

Nemanja Vidic has claimed he always knew that Manchester United would challenge for the title, even though he got ruled out for the season back in December.

“I always believed we would challenge for the title,” he said. “It doesn’t matter who is out. Manchester United never depend on one player. If you look at the past, players have left and fans have said how are we going to cope? But the manager is the best at replacing players and the team still win titles and trophies. That is why Manchester United are so special. We didn’t expect the young players would play so many games and have such influence on the team. This is a great plus for the club. Obviously we have had some injuries over the past year, which is another difficult thing we have gone through, but we have coped and been very competitive with Manchester City. Now we are at the top of the league and have a big chance to win it.”

    King Eric 7:41. The tone has changed in many bitter messages the ‘ I didn’t know they’re aiming for 20 coveys an air if indifference which we all know is false. Its human nature to change the goalposts- no pun intended- once you dream of beating the team you benchmark your own success or failure by is possibly

    Again indifference is often a way of masking ones sense of BITTERNESS at defeat.

    Of course city don’t give a shit about us. :-)

    Mikekelly- you are mistaken . He’s not a tool , a tool is useful. A fool or a stool yes.

  3. Redbilly says:

    Personally. If united had been plucked out of obscurity by a mega rich owner who completely stripped away the old club and bought a brand spanking new one players included and just happened to call them united. I dint think I would brag about it. Personally, I would be a tad embarrassed.

    What a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz,
    What a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz.
    Oh, what a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz.

    Gimme one drink! From that loving cup!

    Was Jagger a United fan?

  5. Mikekelly12 says:

    I wouldn’t support the team if that happened. Do they have any of their old identity left? Short of changing their name they are a completely new club. Even their kit and crest has changed! The tool I was thinking of was the one used for scraping shit from your shoe, so happy with that.

  6. Mikekelly12 says:

    @AnnieEaves: A real odd one. Gazzetta dello Sport say Manchester United want to sign Inter Milan keeper Julio Cesar.

    King Eric

    Fucking epic as ever, always read you posts twice, they crack me up!

    Morning Afternoon, Evening all…. Well I do not know where the fuck everyone is!…

    Seems a certain someone is on a real buzz…..

  9. MUFCJord says:

    Hmm, funny one about Julio Cesar, can’t see that being true.

  10. Jeet says:

    @Cedars: Buzz, my arse…struggling to meet deadlines thanks to my United and RoM obsession. Was listening to Stones on the headphones at work (trying to keep out the usual inane workplace gaggle as I concentrate on cutting edge analysis that will change the way Apple operates, LOL), and posted that. Will be on a buzz starting tonight, and hopefully it will all culminate royally on Sunday :)

    How are you doing, my friend?

  11. Redbilly says:

    Mikekelly- I agree. I do not begrudge any club rising to success , fuck that’s what the game is about. That dream that your can aspire to better things. Its the manner in which it has happened at city which, in my opinion is worse than we witnessed at Chelsea .

  12. Redbilly says:

    Hahaha now your talking mike. Shut scraper is just about right

  13. Redbilly says:

    Shit scraper. Posting from an I phone is a pain.

    hello my friend,

    very slow day indeed,

    where is Smarty by the way?

    Him and slim have been out off late…

  15. Jeet says:

    Smarty disappeared around this time last year as well….probably gone to plant or harvest :)

  16. gaz says:

    welcome as always Cedars sir!! roll on the the weekend when we can soften that quiffy haired cunt Joey the lip Bartons cough hate that greasy haired prick, hopeful the training academy and The Flying Bottle Frenchie Whinger and RVP can finish off shitty.

  17. Sandeep1878 says:


    what are you? a Jason Bourne for qualified ranting? ;)


    harvesting would be the best bet :)

    time to sleep..

    Laters ROM!!


  18. King Eric says:

    Sandeep, Mike and RedBilly – Ha. I know lads. Doesn’t define himself through United yet talks about us non stop. He knows FULL well how many titles United have got. They are priceless. Keep reading how they are being persecuted . Oh fuck off. The only reason you are being spoken about is because you have spunked shit loads of money. Cunts the lot of them.

  19. King Eric says:

    Jeet – Morning pal. That Jagger and Jack White collaraboration is top drawer.

  20. King Eric says:

    Cedars – Morning my friend. They keep providing the comedy mate!

    gaz – Quality pal. Lewis Hamilton lookalike.

  21. WillieRedNut says:

    Good God, how deluded is Phil Neal? Never heard as much claptrap in all my life! Basically, he’s saying Dalglish done well to win a trophy, even though they spent 100 million on players last summer. Sounds like they’re scared to criticize him. Morning fucktards!

  22. Redbilly says:

    To be fair to city fans they have no precious experience of dealing with the media highs and low’s if a title race . It must be fucking painful bring outside the boundaries if their comfort zone . Mike they would sell their souls to beat us into submission . And as for gifting us the title by giving it to us, well I can only laugh for so long . Poor counts are squirming in their empty seats.

  23. Redbilly says:

    Deep down city want to be just like us – fact

  24. gaz says:

    LOL! Something like that sandeep bud! gotta lotta disdain for a lotta muppet heads!

  25. Redbilly says:

    King Eric – credit where it’s due . City provide an excellent example if how not to expand a club . A negative outcome can often be extremely valuable.

  26. Redbilly says:

    Willie – kenny is the greatest of kopclown . Long may he reign .

  27. King Eric says:

    WIllie – Hello mate. Ha ha. Phil Neal? Have you seen the state of that bumbling idiot on LFC TV? He looks pissed or smacked out of his face. What an idiot. They honestly think they will win the FA Cup. They think its in the bag. Is it fuck.

  28. CedarsDevil says:

    I really hope STR corrects the time on the blog…. We are 2 hours ahead of the UK but 3 ahead of the time on the blog!

  29. CedarsDevil says:

    King Eric

    Do you know that Jeff fella who hosts a phone in program on SS2, wears glasses and a Chelsea fan? He is fucking annoying as fuck… Do not know his sir name

  30. WillieRedNut says:

    King Eric – No mate. For a guy who won 4 European cups, he was talking some shite! Kept saying, isn’t that right Andy lol. Maybe you’re right and he is on something!

    RedBilly – KKK is the gift that keeps on giving!

  31. CedarsDevil says:
