"You want other people to debate things"
She doesn't want "other people" to debate things, just you, with your alter-ego, Jack.
She finds it amusing how you, pretending not to be Kipper, refrained from attacking Mandela with your Eddy ID, but used 'Jack' to do it.
At the risk of repeating myself. Either you are a natural born liar, or Rikk is sending things to you to stir trouble.
End of now, I'm bored of your lies and prattling
Oh. And Rikk has admitted to being a member of hacking sites etc etc, so it does not take a leap of faith to see that he could do what you allege is happening. Plus and you won't believe me but he does have previous for the hacking AND virus part.
If you have an e-mail return address to work with then you should be able to sort it!
Cut the pathetic threats. You scare nobody you deranged witch!
Hi Michael & Jason
I think we need to use Gerrard wisely. For matches where we need lots of energy (against busy midfields that press - e.g. Southampton), we should start with the three yesterday. Stevie can come on when such teams are tiring or even start wide right of the three behind Suarez.
I'm not convinced of replacing Lucas with Gerrard. The position he plays is specialist and, above all, you need someone who really wants to play it. As an example, once on the weekend we got caught out forward and Sakho had to cover at left back. Lucas automatically dropped in to center-half. It seems obvious but that's instinct - I'm not sure Gerrard has that.
Lucas hasn't been as good since his injury but I think he's more effective than we give him credit for. I thought Lucas did well on the weekend without having to try and do some of Stevie's running.
You said it, coward!
When are you going to explain this ..... "he has threatened this before, even saying he has paid the money and his relatives are coming to do some damage on his behalf." .... Kipper?
"he does have previous for the hacking AND virus part."
How do you know? You posted here for the first time on November 28th .... COWARD!
And when are you going to explain this .... "he has threatened this before, even saying he has paid the money and his relatives are coming to do some damage on his behalf." ..... Kipper?
Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng admitted: "They're the toughest opponents we could have had. They'll be totally up for it after what happened last year. Both matches will be very intense."
Hey 'virus-mad Rikki, take note son!
I thought we'd have the debate here as many a thread seems to settle into this area at the moment.
For me I'm not the biggest fan of Lucas, never have been either. Here are my reasons.
Firstly I find him one dimensional. He can disrupt opposition attacks provided the game isn't too intense. He may win the ball and give it short. After that I'm struggling. In those high intensity games I find he goes missing. When the pressure builds I find that attacking players just seem to breeze past him. He seems very heavy footed to me.
Also when we have the ball what does he bring to our game? Not a huge amount in my book. He doesn't seem to have a great passing range, again it looks heavy and he's a million miles from being the player we need. That is one that keeps possession ticking over , always available, the out ball for everyone and the ability to probe etc.
It's because of these limitations and this years poor form that I'm afraid to say that he has a lot of work to convince me otherwise of his overall usefulness. I would also say that good players tend to attract some transfer rumours but in all his time I cant remember a single snippet anywhere. That alone tells me that people look and think they can do better elsewhere.
Any thoughts anyone?
He's playing mind games, they're champions, they've won it five times!
Make the bet if you're so confident.
There are no 100% right or wrong decisions here but you admit you dislike AVB and his style of football and that view is shared by many people, fans, experts and neutrals and presumably as well, the Board. When you employ anybody there is always a risk. I know I have employed people who I thought were worth the risk only to be let down very quickly. No point in keeping them, even though it cost me money, so let them go. Nothing different with Football Managers. You could argue that the risk was bigger with AVB because of his age, lack of experience and what happened at Chelsea but Levy and the Board decided to take that risk and it failed. They have made themselves look silly by failing but ultimately it is not them that pays the price, its the Manager, team and fans. You also, on balance, don't think AVB would have turned it around. Again, nor did many people and particularly the ones that count, so the decision to let him go was made that bit easier. I don't understand how on one hand you don't like him, don't like the way he had our team playing, don't think he would turn it around BUT would still give him more time. More time to make the whole situation worse if your feelings about him are correct. That makes sense!! IMO he lost the players and when that happens there is only one solution. I don't understand the whole Director of Football bit especially when they are in control of who the team buys but it is very convenient for a failing Manager when that is the case as its an ideal excuse. You say in your first post that we will now be taking "another step back". How do you know that? We might of course but there is just as much chance that we take a step forward as often happens when a poor manager goes to be replaced with someone new who the players have respect for, even if that does turn out to be a short lived honeymoon period. As usual John, I find your arguments full of holes, confusing and contradictory almost as if it is done deliberately.
You know what. Yes it would be great to take a massive scalp but if we don't get through it can only help us in the league. The squad is too thin to fight to the death on all fronts. Sad but the fact are the facts
Rikk...I thought I made that clear that I pointed my questions toward sweetheart, not you. Apologies if you thought that was a little rude and ignorant, but the same applies...why can't she answer for herself?
As I said, Sweetpea hangs onto your shirt tails for support. can't discuss herself. Typical sweaty.
And I pointed my question towards you. Why don't you answer?
How do you know, you've only been here five minutes?
She doesn't have to speak for herself, especially when some twot is sending her viruses, and when she is here she definitely speaks for herself, she's no shrinking violet, and she certainly has the measure of you.
Answer my points about Mandela and the IRA.
If it's "unfindable" how did I find it?. It's been on my bookmarks for over a year ya fanny, I just didn't bother with it till Man Disunited suddenly fell apart, and I thought it was time to put the boot in, as you lot have been smug and arrogant in the extreme these past few years. Let me assure the paranoid twins, NOBODY gave me a link to this site, NOBODY. Now why don't you do what you do best. Get a giant tube of K Y Jelly, slip some suspenders on a kangaroo, and fire away. Is it not past your bedtime anyway, you pathetic obnoxious excuse for a human being.
Ha ha. Why are you here, why am I here, how did we all find an un findable web site?
It's like the irresistible force meeting the unmoveable object..it's impossible. We must all be figments of our imagination or a 3d projection from the alternative 2d universe!
The current situation at old Trafford, is almost as spectacular as the Wall st crash. A dodgy defence, an unimaginative midfield, and relying so heavily on RVP, currently sidelined AGAIN through injury. He had many injuries whilst at Arsenal, and clearly the English game has not toughened him up at all. Intelligent players like Messi and Ronaldo avoid many injuries with their instinctive timing in avoiding tackles. I still can't get over Moyes getting a 6 year contract. The money men must be ruing that decision as teams no longer fear United. The future does not look bright at this time, highly unlikely Champions league next season.
