Manchester United Message Board
ICJ, I totally agree about the attention seeking celebrities part. It's poor when you see 'Morning everyone!' as a status. But you don't have to follow those types. Instead you can engage with like-minded people and discuss things important to you, share blogs, get updates on software, make complaints (what I joined for!). Forget the egos!
Twitter has an abundance of parasites and idiots.
I thought Twitter was ridiculous and meaningless but now realise there is a place for me on it - mainly chatting about football.
I have found myself resisting urge to come on here more and more lately - due to other users leaving or being fed up with the trolls or not liking the new design - so was wondering if anyone would join me on twitter and we could chat there? If we always posted to #yahoomanutd we'd see each other's posts.
Obviously we can't stop the trolls but we really do want them to be there to entertain us with their totally informed and unbiased opinions.
Barca were sharp and on form last night. You can't deny that. The brilliance of Messi is beyond doubt and Barca are hitting form at the right time. But saying that, had it not been for a poor finish by the Milan guy (forget who it was), it might have been Milan going through.
There's no excuse for what Rio did to Torres.
It was off the ball and away from where the ball was so I don't think you can cite bias from Webb or say he turned a blind eye - he'd probably get sacked for not dealing with it if he did see it.
Not that any player should do this but why do that to Torres.. he's not exactly a player who we need to take down a peg or two.. he's in the doldrums already!
