  1. Favourite Films: 1. The Social Network Possibly up there as my favourite film of all time, I saw it twice at the cinema and another 5 times on the dvd screener and cant wait for the Bluray. I went with my brother and his girlfriend the first time. My brother has terrible taste in movies, its a runing joke in my family that if you ask him what a film was like, no matter how bad, he will always say "its Alright" and his favourite film series is Resident Evil. During the opening scene I looked over at him and he was leaning foward in total concentration. When I asked what he thought of the fi
  2. I cant remember the last time we scored from a free kick. I think we've been spoilt by having Beckham and then Ronaldo on free kick duties.
  3. Giggs is playing more as a third central midfielder (although he seems to be playing a bit wider since Anderson came on) meaning ever time Fabio gets the ball he has to stop, check back and pass back to the middle.
  4. Giggs passing has been awful and he's playing too close to the centre meaning Fabio cant bomb on, we need Evra on and have either him or Fabio play left wing.

  6. If Rooney is fit and he's in anyway part of Fergusons plans he has to start against Wigan, he needs to get as much playing time in as possible to get some kind of form back. Also its time to ditch 442, it just doesn't work with the midfielders we have. If we dont play Scholes we have no creativity and if he does play we dont have an effective shield when we lose it and that leads to us leaking goals. Berbatov needs to go, the final straw for me was not even getting his shot on target when put through by Hernandez in the first half, he slows us down too much, doesn't work upfront on his own

  8. Feeling a little more confident now I've seen the team (only a little bit mind), Hopefully Carrick can sit infront of the back 4 and give Scholes the chance to play a bit higher up, its a shame Giggs has missed his first derby in 19 years, amazing record. Also looks like Cleverly will be starting on the right wing for Wigan. It's a weak bench Amos, Brown, Smalling, Hernandez, O'Shea, Obertan and Gibson.
  9. Been second best most of the first half, we need Scholes to come on for O'Shea to give our midfield a bit of composure. Bebe's crossing has been awful.
  10. I think I'm in love. So how long are we going to be ahead this time?
  11. Moyes? His statement could be read that way especially "For me its all about winning trophies - as the club has always done under Sir Alex. Because of that I think the questions I was asking were justified." and "For Manchester United's sake I wish he could go on forever because he's a one-off and a genius" but I cant really see it. If anything I would have thought that he had at least a couple of years left in him as surely he wants to break the record for league titles. Of course maybe the truth has dawned on him that this will be impossible while the Glazers are in charge but with financi
  12. "Rooney is not going anywhere :RING: :RING: sorry Jose Cant speak at the moment, I'll call you back" Something is definitely going on but the only two likely destinations are Barca or Real but he's never to my knowledge expressed a desire to play abroad and unless he does get divorced I cant see Coleen moving away from her family. Of course maybe the Glazers are putting it out there to ease the backlash when he's sold to finance them taking another £20 million out next year in management fee.
  13. o/ . We all know midfield is the major issue, I dont think Gibson is even good enough for a midtable premier league team so I dont know what Ferguson sees in him. At least when Fletcher was shit he ran around a lot and had the odd occasional game against good opposition, Gibson does neither. I'd much rather Cleverly was given the chance rather than sitting on the bench at Wigan, he couldn't be any worse than Gibson I'd say Carrick was pretty much on colour today, lots of sideways passing and lacking any drive. This has been the problem all season though, even when its Fletcher and Scholes

  15. Its getting embarrassing how easy we capitulate after the first goal goes in against us. If teams start to believe they can come back against us no matter what the score we're in big trouble.
  16. If you have Veetle, this one has been excellent http://www.firstrow.net/watch/32310/5/watch-manchester-united-vs-west-bromwich-albion.html .
  17. Rooney starting on the bench, team is VDS, Raf, Vidic, Rio, Evra, Giggs, Anderson, Carrick, Nani, Berb, Hernandez. Not sure about Carrick and Anderson in the middle but I'm looking forward to Berbs and Hernandez playing together, might end up being our starting pairing upfront next season .

  19. 8th time in a row I've lost with QQ vs Ax all in preflop. Well played heads up Crhis, I really need to work on my heads up play I was way too passive.

    I haven't been having much luck with the ladies recently, knocked out with them in 5 of my last 6 tournaments. Allin preflop versus AT twice, AJ, AQ and AK.

  22. What has happened to Carrick, I'm sure I remember he used to be able to pass it forward occasionally. I thought it was weird starting Raf in a game where he would be up against Mata and where we needed some kind of result but wouldn't play him against Newcastle or Fulham, but he easily handled it. I hope cramp was the reason he went off and he's ready to make the right back spot his own, I dont think I could put up with O'Shea/Neville at right back for much longer.
  23. Lovely finish, hopefully Phelan recognises the obvious and switches to 442 after half time otherwise I can see them scoring again.
