Welbz: Whole town was painted red

Danny Welbeck has reflected on the past few days and can’t believe how impressive the turn out for the parade was.

“The send-off was unbelievable,” he said. “When we came under the bridge at Deansgate it seemed the whole town was painted red. People were on scaffolding, hanging out of windows, on lamp posts, bus stops. I was just hoping the scaffolding wasn’t going to fall down. All the United fans came together that day.”

    Phenomenal season for Welbz despite lack of free goal scoring record.he was always desperate to help the team and from his way of speaking you can feel he is a mad mad united fan.

    Well said Welbz it was a fantastic day.
    IMO opinion anybody who rubbishes Danny does not understand United.
    From a 8 year old through to the first team, with loan spells to grow and develop.
    The iconic old gaffer did ask of Danny to improve his goal scoring rate, why can’t he achieve this.
    He will in my view.
    He loves United, smiles a lot like Yorkie and maturing.
    Everybody will get a fair crack of the whip with the new boss.
    Cleverley, Anderson and Nani, who have all fallen of the pace in the tail end of the 20th League title.
    To me as RVP said there is a brilliant harmony at Manchester United, it’s a brilliant club.
    Fantastic history and the legacy Sir Alex has left for the amicable Premier league astute new blue eyed boy Moyes, he will develop.
    With one or two new sensible signings; no major retooling at United, with arguably the best squad in the league.
    Even Wayne Rooney needs to grasp the nettle and take up the challenge.
    Eh Scott?
    I guess my post wont be cleared. :)
    Have a nice evening.

    SAF’s last words:

    “It’s difficult to know what to do for the best, and that’s where the club should offer some support, but I certainly have no plans to start hanging round City’s training ground. I gave up council housing a long time ago.”
