  1. Re: Official Red Devils thread

    Oh, Berba is a great player, I think we'll see more from him next season, but he's more 'Teddy Sheringham' than 'Andy Cole', with regard to his prolificness in front of goal. We'll keep Tevez, though I'm sure it'll drag out as we seem determined not to be strong-armed into paying an astronomical transfer fee. As for Wayne, I dunno, I'm beginning to appreciate him playing in a midfield role.

  2. Re: Official Red Devils thread

    Unfortunately not, mate. We'll be okay for a point today, I'm sure. And I don't see it being Tevez's last season with us. From his point of view, a move is a backward step away from players he wants to share a pitch with. And, from our perspective, we can't really afford to let him go as Berba isn't a huge goal threat and Wayne is becoming evermore a midfield player. They'll sort a deal.

  3. Re: England vs Slovakia

    Oh I know what they're on. I just think that every live England game should be exclusive to terrestrial tv. Every single person in this country should be able to watch the national team play live; not forgetting, a lot of kids can't afford, or make the decision, to subscribe to Sky or Setanta.

  4. Re: England vs Slovakia

    Its only bad for the people who have SkySports and are used to them having every game B) I have Setanta and i dont see a problem. You cant have all the matches on Sky! :P

    I have a full Sky package but it's really not about Sky or Setanta mate. It's about everybody being able to watch the national team. There's not a person in this world that could convince me England internationals should be on anything but the terrestrial channels (1 to 5).

  5. Re: Fed Up With Glory Supporters!

    what? you want an explanation of a Glory Hunter?

    I don't even live in the same region as the team I support. And I support them, not because of success, but by default of their strips being sold on the Estate I grew up on. The strips will have been stolen from somewhere or other and, in all honesty, if they'd have been of a different club I'd probably have followed a different team. But that's just the way life happens sometimes.

  6. Re: England vs Slovakia

    I'm one of the many millions that don't have Setanta, so my overriding feeling on the day is that it's disgusting that 'our' national team plays on anything but a terrestrial channel. As a Manchester United fan, I can understand and swallow the role of finance within the game, but couldn't the bods in London at least display a conscience when it comes to televising our national team?

  7. Re: Gold champ 17?

    This isn't a fit of petulance, I'm genuinely considering quitting this game. A lot of us have voiced our frustrations for a long time now, regarding the financial state of game worlds and bloated squad sizes, and now measures are being introduced that are as much a hindrance to sensible managers as anyone else. I'm genuinely gobsmacked.

  8. What is going on?

    It's the first day of a new season in GC17. I've logged in to find that the Chairman has taken a dividend of 40+ million pounds, leaving me with £2.9m. I understand that these measures are being introduced, essentially, to reduce squad sizes within game worlds but I'm one of the 'sensible' managers and have a squad of just 22 players. This is farcical.

  9. Re: Official Red Devils thread

    I know there's a bit of nervousness kicking in now but we'll be ok!!

    In Fergie we trust' date=' COME ON UNITED!!!!![/quote']

    Absolutely. We needed a break and it's come just when Liverpool were grasping some momentum. The likes of Evra and Carrick haven't looked their usual selves of late but they'll return rejuvenated. The disappointments of the last couple of weeks have made things more interesting but momentum can, and probably will, swing back our way equally as quickly. It's not clear-cut anymore but I don't really see us as anything but champions this season.

  10. Re: Who is the best rapper?

    My first post....

    I know i'm an old man delving into the depths of time but someone needs to mention Gil Scott Heron. If you haven't heard of him' date=' do yourself a big favour and educate yourself about this pioneer of what has led on to become today's rap music.[/quote']

    I like a bit of Gil from time to time. I'm no real connoisseur of his but his best of is always on my i-pod. 'Get out of the ghetto blues' and 'The Bottle' are great songs. I do think you're right, he was a pioneer, but not of the rap that we tend to see today. I don't think much of what is around now mirrors his social conscience. But when I hear Tupac songs, like 'Brenda's got a baby', I can't help but see a Scott-Heron influence.

  11. Re: The Weekend Football Thread

    Until now, I never thought it could be Liverpool's year. And, in fairness to me, I think a lot of Liverpool fans felt the same. But, after the last fortnight, even the most headstrong of United fans must have to accept that Liverpool are now real contenders. There were signs earlier in the season, you were awesome up at St. James', that just maybe Liverpool were beginning to look strong enough. But I still felt that, as the season went on, you'd drop away. That hasn't happened and now we have a real title race on our hands.

    I do still feel though that we have to be favourites. Despite Liverpool's efforts we are still top, we have the advantage of a game in hand and we now have an International break in which I'm sure a lot of United players will give their legs a well needed rest. The next couple of months should be as exciting as it will be nervy.
