Young: Don’t Come Much Bigger Than United

Ashley Young has reflected on his move to Manchester United, following the 1-0 win against his former club Aston Villa at the weekend.

“They don’t come much bigger than Manchester United,” said Young. “I have always had confidence in my own ability and the club had enough confidence to sign me. I know quite a few players through England, so I settled in straight away.”

Young has been used on the left wing as well as behind the striker but he insists he is happy to play anywhere for United.

“I don’t have a favourite position. As long as I am in the team I am happy. The modern-day footballer has to be versatile.”

    Thanks Fred! My Flintsone!

  2. JC says:

    Im starting to come to the opinion that every match should be reviewed on tape by an official and flagrant acts of faking an injury/diving should be held up to some sort of punishment. That display from Miereles was embarassing, the hand didnt even come within inches of his face and he went down as if slugged in the jaw by Tyson.

  3. Fred says:

    Ah FFS. Chelsea 2 goals to the good now.

  4. CedarsDevil says:


    You just touched my err heart in the right place! hahaha brilliant stuff

    By the way its nice to know ‘I belong here’ and the so called regulars accept me! hahahaha

    Thanks Cedars, After reading Sir Giles post. Made me think after last years brush with death I had with Staff infection, was in the hospital for 20+ days and recouping at home for 6 more weeks is when I started posting in a regular manor. RoM so therapeutic. RoM Rehab? Rehab from RoM.

  6. JC says:

    This is gonna be a long one, absolutely no movement off of the ball with Valencia right now and Chelshit are just gonna pack in the backline.

  7. CedarsDevil says:

    Why are some so desperate for Chelsea to lose? They are not our enemies my any means, they are mere rent boys

  8. CedarsDevil says:


    RoM is by all means a rehab my friend….. Just ask me!!!

    Got a new line from Gary “There’s something statistics doesn’t tell you, that’s body language” Talking about Drogba.

    I’ve just seen a whole news story to Cheryl Coles shoe range

    I bet Watson would be waiting to investigate her missing Lingerie range.


  11. Fred says:

    Hmmm, a win tonight would put Chelsea’s tails up ahead of Monday night’s clash of the nouveau riche.

  12. MG says:


    Chelsea winning would be a good incentive for next weeks clash against mancelona


  13. Costas says:

    Nice going Arse. ;)

  14. Costas says:

    If Chelsea win and top the group, that will increase our chances of getting Barcelona or Real in the last 16. If we get by Basel of course…

  15. MG says:



    Cedars will be turning very very green…


  16. CedarsDevil says:


    Bugger off, that just put me off! hahahaha

  18. Fred says:

    Costas makes a very good point.

  19. James21 says:

    ;D Don’t be like that she’s come all the way up from London just for you. :D

  20. King Eric says:

    Cheers lads.

    Zehl. Oh no question tunni is a real powerhouse who is a real box to boxer. Strong as an ox, times his tackles to perfection and can pop up with goals. In the jones mould that he is a leader. Or will be.

    As someone stated in a way the rentboys winning is a good thing. Full of confidence for Monday.

    Regards the last sixrteen fuck it. Assuming we get through we get who we get. Fuck all we can do about it. Anyway nobody knows what form will be like come feb march time. We could be on fire. Messi may have broke his leg or tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. Xavi could be injured. Ronnie could be. No point in worrying who we get. Bring em on. As I say the last sixteen is a long time away yet.

  21. slim says:

    what i want to know is how any of the men in the sky studios could concentrate on the game with that bombshell across the room,

  22. Paul Parker says:

    Cheers Smartalex, much obliged pal, there I was thinking I was randomly ranting.

    hahaha @ Fugawee Tribe!

    @ Fred, does ole Eckhart Tolle support United then? :D

    Giles mate, hope you have that kick about soon. Cheers for the Health Tip.

  23. Fred says:

    Eckhart Tolle. :lol: It was two days ago that I mentioned him.

  24. Giles Oakley says:

    Slim, if in doubt, have the PSA test. It’s just a blood sample initially, unless it’s high in Prostate Specific Antigens which may indicate cancer. At that point you might get rectal examinations, although it’s really not too bad. I’ve been lucky, beautiful women doing it with tender loving care! All of these things are better than dying, I’d suggest. That’s basically the choice, not to be too blunt about it.

  25. 68Devils says:

    The things we take for granted.Thanks for the advise.Take care.

    @ Giles Oakley

    All the best mate.
    Love reading your R.O.M stories. They are fantastic.
    Thank you.

  27. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Cheers Gents, Giles makes a good point re prostate cancer. Every lad over 50 should get a baseline blood test for PSA and then every 2-4 years or so. They say that every man in his 70s has prostate cancer. Luckily it is mostly in a very benign form. The PSA test is just a way to keep your head in the game and make sure you are there for United and your kids. I give this advice to any United fan for free. If you support Cittay you can get it somewhere else ;)
