    Matt72 got a reaction from Sir Rahul in Official Manchester United Thread   
    He (we know who I am on about, to embarrassed to even say his name) has such a blinded and bias perception of everything Manchester United is embarrassing. I have a life long mate who has watched Manchester United as a season ticket holder for 30 years and he has even said these last 3 games have been a real eye opener and proves how ordinary the side and staff (from players to back room staff to management)  really is. This is someone who watches them religiously. 
    When I told him what talentsearcher said in regards to United having no luck in recent seasons and in particular the three games we are discussing, well there would be no sentence to print in here once all the expletives had been removed. Needless to say he would like to meet you so he can, and I quote "slap some sense into you."

    Here are your totals for turn 11 and it is my turn now to hit the dizzy heights of an 80+ score, and much needed as well. The usual suspects in Gorbash and Whisperr scoring highly yet again and Huddo with his somewhat erratic form bounces back with the 3rd highest score of 53 this turn. At the bottom it is a familiar scene for Altai who again disappoints, as did Gozzy, proving that Ronaldo and Messi do not make a team.

    Hers is the overall scores after turn 11 and Whisperr's lead is being slowly whittled down after every game by Gorbash. On a personal level I am glad I am being competitive, moving from 10th after turn 9 to 4th now, again reiterating how quickly you can move up in this set up. Sadly Altai's poor form sees him drop into the minus points.

    Hers is the overall scores after turn 9 and again yet a new leader in Whisperr, top spot is changing every turn of late. The top 3 managers are showing some consistency, with Noisy doing his most to hang on in there. Sean seems to be slipping back after such a great start, and 6 managers fighting for that 5th spot at the minute with the top 4 seemingly pulling away from the rest. Special mention to Whisperr for being the only manager left without a minus total so well done mate.

    Hers is the overall scores after turn 8 and again a new leader (unsurprisingly) in Huddo. Two managers have broken the 200 points barrier now so well done Huddo and Whisperr. Also a special mention again to Whisperr who along with Rahul are the only 2 managers who have not had one turn in the minus points, although Rahul's is a little more impressive as Whisperr's P.S.G were unmanaged for a short period.

    Here are your totals after turn 3 and it was all about Noisy and Gareth Bale who amassed 19 points. A chance missed there, if he was captain you would have been looking at 38 points. A special mention for "unmanaged" who seems to have been doing a sterling job for P.S.G, showing just how rubbish we all are, especially me since I was on the receiving end of the 40 points they received. Hero to zero this time round is Huddo, just a typically erratic Aussie.

    Well here are your totals after turn 2, With Rock Hudson's illegitimate child leading the way for this turn with an impressive 51 points, clean sheet and 3 goals to boot so well done sir, Sean carries on his impressive start with yet another clean sheet with the added bonus of a goal to boost his points to 42. Pedro sadly with a dismal -16 is clearly finding life tough commuting to China from Portugal, I imagine sampling the national delicacies such as pigs trotters and pigs tails won't be helping either. Word of advice Pedro, when they say it is chicken it usually isn't.

    Oh your last line about Newcastle, ha ha you are a child. A big, dense, child. Nobody needs to tell me how rubbish my team is I am there biggest critic. At least I go to some home games. How many times have you been to Old Trafford?What you blatantly fail to realise is he may have given the aforementioned players game time but he never developed them that is the big difference that you seemingly are unable to grasp. While we are on the topic of Mourinho and nurturing youth...oh and Newcastle for that matter, who NURTURED Mourinho as a YOUTHFUL coach/manager breaking into the game? That's right a GEORDIE, (Sir Bobby Robson.) Arguably Man United are a better team with Carrick (a Geordie) who came through the ranks at the famous Wallsend boys club in Newcastle. Call us rubbish all you like but you rely on a Geordie to make your team tick in the middle of the park and are going to rely on a manager who learnt everything he knew working under a Geordie. Do you realise how much pleasure this gives me?
    Can't finish my post without mentioning Sir Bobby Robson, a legend, a true gent and the one person who made Mourinho who he is today.
