Young To Replace Evra As Dressing Room DJ?

In a webchat with Ashley Young and Danny Welbeck on the official site, they both confirmed that Patrice Evra was past his best when it came to choosing the music to listen to in the dressing room ahead of kick-off.

DW: I think I can speak for both of us here. We’ve had discussions recently and as for Patrice’s skills… he has some good tunes but recently he’s mellowed a bit. The tempo in the dressing room has slowed down. I’m not saying he’s showing his age but I think the tunes are…

AY: Let me tell you. The tunes have slowed down and they’re not the beat we need before we go out on the pitch. But he is a good DJ and he has lots of tunes.

DW: I think his playlist is too big and when he hits shuffle it lands on a few slower songs. I have to say, I like his music but it could be time for a change if Ash is putting himself forward.

AY: I’ve done it a few times and I’ve never had a complaint. Even Albert, our kitman, was tapping his foot when I played a few tunes once.

    James Wilson puts United U18s 1-0 up v Sporting Lisbon in the Nex Lions Cup. 40min played in Singapore.

    Very hot! 29 degrees C. Be a long day as the Lisbon lads are much more confortable with the heat.

    Want a bit of slayer in there. Maybe the clash, Napalm Death (old stuff before the chubbies took over).
    Something with energy.
    If it was up to me however as I am more Berbatov in character with bouts of ADHD thrown in. Id go for a bit of Fripp.


    the clash

    napalm death

    fripp – King Crimson

    The shit that these 60kg nancy boys play would drive me insane and Id chomp on babys and animals for the sound of their little bones crushing in my teeth to drown out the RnB (lol) horshite they listen to. Fucking gaytards.

    United U18s went on to loose in very hot conditions.
    Will play again Saturday in the consolation game. Couple good chances but the Portugese side were able to deel with the heat better.
