    Why not have a set with the faces of our “owners” on them? Fill them with sewage and what do we have? Exactly what they are:an ugly mug full of shit!

    I couldn’t resist.

    Nice mug!

    But on to the big news!!!!

    Vidic Back!!!! Ohhhhhh that’s good!!!!

    RE Cluj:
    “I’m hopeful maybe Vidic will play,” stated the manager. “I think there’s a good chance he will but it depends on how he feels himself.

    “It allows me to give Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Vidic [a game] in a strong back-four and Alexander Büttner would be left-back. There’s a good foundation to start in the game in terms of respecting the challenge between Galatasaray and Cluj [for second place]. I think we’re doing the right thing.”

    Nice mug for those that like that sort of thing. Im a Tory and couldnt be seen dead with a mug that looks like Chairman Mau about to get fisted.
    Can you do me one with Thatcher on it saying I closed mines now close yours.
    If not Ill stick with my favourite breakfast mug. It has a picture of a dead cat at the side of the road with a balloon tied to its wrist. On the balloon is the words get well soon. I made it for myself when I was feeling poorly one day, I had the shits as it so happens!

    I hope fergie doesnt bench rafael aganst city. That is a maych made for him. He doesnt fear anyone and thats why i would play him. Smalling has a few jitters agnst big teams. I remember rafa marking ronaldinho, bale, ribbery, nasri to name a few. He is absolutely brilliant in such big gaames. I hope fegrie doesnt opt for height coz nasri is short, aguero, tevez and those are more likely to start than balofuckelli or dzeko

    Goat, That’s good….. :lol:

    Oh right, and cue the Special one to United rumors which should completely suck the air out of any holiday spirt.

    1. Fergie just did an interview saying Mourinho could run United… Not that he would. But definately thinks the man is big enough for the job.

    2. Then Mourinho has bust up with Real and Madrid rags running over themselves saying Mourinho was gone this summer (ha! summer is a long way off in football)

    3. Mourinho ‘In my career everything perfect, the only thing I didn’t & I hope I can do it one day is win CL with an English club’ via Now Henry Winter

    Who will be the first of our youngsters shipped off as not good enough? Evans? Welbeck? Can see the For cue of agents down at Carrington now…. Depressing.

    Only way I’m getting a mug with Margaret Thatcher on it is if it looks like this:

    Just found a story appropriate for this item:

    UEFA have appointed a real mug for United v Cluj! :lol:

    Daniele Orsato has only officiated 3 CL fixtures….. ever!.

    TBF, the ref is 37 and has officiated in the serie A for several years.

    Maybe UEFA are trying to show their disappointment at us feeling our B team anyway. ;)
