Creme de la menthe! Parlez-vous Norn Iron?

How to speak Norn Iron (very funny)

Cheers Eds for the accompanying video. I've never felt sympathy for the French before, but God help them if we do the unthinkable, and actually bloody qualify.

Just mulling over some old videos of Utd games, and just to while away the time during the international break, thought I'd ask what your favourite player performance has been since you started supporting the club.

Mine isn't very original, but Roy Keane in the 99 Champions league semi-final is, in my view, the single most inspirational individual performance I think I've ever seen on a football pitch.

1.) 10 Oct 2018 19:35:32
100% agree Stevie I read the question and my mind went straight there.

Possibly the most complete individual performance I've ever seen.

2.) 10 Oct 2018 20:20:25
Hard to look past that performance from Keane.

Schmeichel against Newcastle at St James Park. Save after incredible save and then up pops Cantona for the winner. Think that was 1996.

3.) 10 Oct 2018 20:35:19
1984, Barcelona at home, Cup Winners Cup, lost the first leg 2-0, Maradona, Schuster and co meant we were given no chance. Ask anyone who was there that night and there hasn’t been anything quite like it and Robson dragged us over the line. Carried off the pitch on the shoulders of the fans. Watch the video, turn the sound up, I still remember Stapleton scoring the third from where I was standing right in line with him on the Stretford End. Those days there was a crush when we scored, not much touched that night and Robson’s performance.

What came close? Cantona in 96, Schmeichel away to Newcastle in 96, Keane at Juventus in 99, Rooneys debut v Fernabace plus several Ronaldo games in 2009.

4.) 10 Oct 2018 20:42:43
Both of them would be in my top 3 hoggy. robson v barcelona at old trafford would be the third. Was it 84? They are the stand outs for me.
Good question stevie.

5.) 10 Oct 2018 20:46:25
Keano is head and shoulders above but though not one particular game, Cantona seemingly series of goals in our 1-0 wins I alwys think about. Eric really stepped us and everyone around him up a level.

6.) 10 Oct 2018 22:28:56
I am with Red Man.

Robson was brilliant.

7.) 10 Oct 2018 22:48:00
Rooney debut is a great shout redman. Hat trick after his metatarcel injury was some way to enter the stage included a great free kick i think.

8.) 10 Oct 2018 22:49:45
It would have been the complete performance if he didn't get booked deano😂😂.

9.) 10 Oct 2018 22:53:18
Roy Keane v juve.

And if you said one player you'd have back right now it would also be him above them all.

10.) 11 Oct 2018 01:20:19
What about the countless unbelievable performances of eric djemba djemba-how time makes us forget!

11.) 11 Oct 2018 08:16:31
Big norm against the scouse scared the :;"' out of them.

12.) 11 Oct 2018 09:31:01
All good shouts but I do like robbo’s Performance against the scousers Maine rd 85 replay. No better player than captain marvel.

13.) 11 Oct 2018 10:12:04
Yeah, Robbo against Barcelona was up there with the best of them. I think Keane's edges it for me because of the circumstances. On a yellow, knowing he'd miss the final, but still summoning up the drive and passion to get us over the line. What a year that was. So many defining moments.

14.) 11 Oct 2018 10:33:00
Mine has to be scoles and Carrick and there combined display when we thrashed Roma it was one of the best midfield partners display I think I have ever seen they ripped Roma apart!

15.) 11 Oct 2018 10:57:05
Forgot about Barcelona in 1984.

A great game. Think the Stretford End sucked in the 3rd goal.

These games are what being a Utd supporter is all about.
The team sometimes have a mountain to climb but never give up and have a go no matter who the opposition is!

16.) 11 Oct 2018 13:23:46
Steve Bruce against Villa?

17.) 11 Oct 2018 15:48:27
United 4 - 3 Real Madrid

Admittedly we ended up losing on aggregate but 2 great attacking teams, the United fans giving Ronaldo a standing ovation, Becks with a point to prove. Just a wonderful advert for Champions League football. Also really enjoyed a few of the clashes with Arsenal.

18.) 11 Oct 2018 16:06:46
Surely it has to be John O'Shea in the 4-0 win against Spurs in 2007?

Absolutely stunning performance, one of the few times I was lost for words. Lol.

19.) 11 Oct 2018 18:56:28
The booking just made the performance better for me ken it was a true selfless performance .

20.) 12 Oct 2018 10:12:45
Steve Coppell against anyone.



06 Oct 2018 23:41:32
What's this new football programme that's on just now? Match of The Day or something like that.

1.) 07 Oct 2018 06:39:05
Lol-i think that young man jimmy hill presents it i've been told.



30 Jul 2018 23:29:56
This 'poor us' narrative creeping in amongst United supporters is really unattractive. If things were going right on the pitch, there wouldn't be these persons talking badly about us. It just serves as a useful distraction to those among us who want to ignore our other failings. I've said it before, but this mentality just makes us look and sound like Liverpool supporters.

1.) 31 Jul 2018 08:23:20
Well said. if things were perfect last season. no one would want a single signing. But fans know. things are far far from perfect. City were perfect and they still added Mahrez. And we are stuck with players who fans want to see go.

2.) 31 Jul 2018 09:04:05
I've said it before but a huge swathe of Utd fans are spoilt by previous success and seem to be unable to see that the distance we fell cannot be made up in one season. It is a process and Jose is taking us in the right direction. Whoever inherits his team will have a foundation much more solid than the one he inherited. There are no better managers available to replace him so why don't we as supporters try you know, supporting him.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 10:07:39
12 days, none of us are expecting it to be made up in one season. Jose has had two whole seasons and we are starting his third. Can we expect to see significant improvement over 2 years with 500m spent or is that unreasonable?

4.) 31 Jul 2018 11:20:52
There was plenty written on this site yesterday about the difference between the negativity of the press and what the actual relationship is between the manager and the players. People also don’t take into account the role that the other coaches are likely to play in the mood of the players.
When Chelsea were going through a bad spell the season after winning the league with Mourinho and he got the sack the fans were booing the players and supporting the manager. Sure the Chelsea fans had previous affection for Mourinho which we don’t have but in some instances what’s the difference? Just fan perception!
I agree that Mourinho overstepped the mark at Chelsea and lost the plot and I also don’t like some of the things he says to the press as Utd manager.
I am not happy with the style of play like many others. However I personally didn’t see Mourinho teams of the past as boring, they had good players with some flair but were disciplined at the same time. I didn’t enjoy Utd playing Chelsea when Mourinho was their manager as they would always dominate the midfield and control the game. Something I hope Utd would do under Mourinho.
Pogba is a great talent and played well last season despite the criticism. Mourinho tells Pogba to play it simple and there was obviously a falling out last season. Then Pogba does that in a few games last season, notably 2nd half at City and we see the result.
At the World Cup Pogba keeps it simple, plays well and gets all the praise so I don’t feel it is right to criticise solely Mourinho for a breakdown in their relationship.
Pogba could be the best CM player in the world. He has skill, speed and power, if he had a mindset of Keane or Scholes he would be devestating. He must take on some of the responsibility in addition to the criticism aimed at Mourinho for managing him inappropriately.
The bit that I don’t agree with is the fact that Mourinho is not really trying to develop the young players. Rashford, Lingard and Martial were handed to him on a plate and you could argue with the exception of Lingard he hasn’t made best use of them. McTominay is the one exception but he appears to be a holding midfielder. I don’t understand how we have 3 forwards who are all right footed but can only play on the left or down the middle yet we are trying to spend £50M or more on players that are 29 who can play on the right hand side. Martial and Rashford have pace to burn and so why can’t they be coached and adapt to the right hand side?
2 years ago Mourinho praised Tuanzebe but he hasn’t brought him on or given him enough game time to prove him one way or another. The same can be said of TSM.
I believe that there were 7/ 8 players that needed to leave Utd at the end of last season but with only 4/ 5 replacements at most as a few young players can step up into the 25 man squad.
Mourinho seems reluctant to try youth even when he should know that the fans have some patience with a manager who brings through a few players from the academy. Presume he would be concerned about not maintaining top 4 status which must be a requirement from the board. I think that Gomes and Chong are great prospects and Mourinho gives them praise but in Chongs case at least says he is not ready, so when will he be ready? Never heard this from Fergie only if they were good enough then they were old enough. Fergie new how to bring on young players and when to put them in and take them out and he wasn’t afraid to get it wrong.
I thought after the Chelsea debacle that Mourinho would be more humble at Utd but although he hasn’t reached the heights of his antics at Chelsea he has not changed much either. At Utd I felt he had a chance to do things differently and build a team, develop youth and stay for a sustained period. Instead he appears to be in it for just the 3/ 4 seasons and then he will be off.
With that in mind I will back the manger and support the team despite my concerns.
The real question is who will replace Mourinho and I hope that behind closed doors the board is at least thinking about this part of the future sooner rather than later.



28 Jul 2018 22:51:02
Great free-kick from Pereira, but we are so sloppy in possession. Loving our new tactic of hitting it up to the two big men, Mata and Sanchez.

{Ed004's Note - Our tactic must be to see if we can concus Van Dijk. Don't understand why we are trying to hit Sanchez from kick outs. Also McTominay and Herrera have to pull the fingers out.}

1.) 28 Jul 2018 23:10:37
I liked McTominay last season, Ed. He was decent without being anything special. I know it's only a few games in, but it does look as if he may have regressed a little. Maybe a good loan would be best for him, because there's no way he should be in ahead of any of our first team midfield options. Pereira has to figure this season. He looks so much more mature in his performances.

{Ed004's Note - McTominay has been shocking this preseason. But he's not alone in being awful in that midfield. We seem utterly incapable of keeping the ball.}

2.) 28 Jul 2018 23:42:47
Liverpool have a clear pattern of play and are moving the ball with slick passing. Out attacking midfield has been none existent.

3.) 28 Jul 2018 23:53:07
Some of these players, especially Herrera showing why he won’t be first choice this season. So many players missing and we held our own in the first half against a strong Liverpool side. I always felt like we would lose and I think we left it too long to make the changes as our players looked dead on their feet, they will be much fitter and better for it though I’m sure.

Good to see some of the kids getting a run out, and some lovely touches from Fred, looking forward to seeing more from him.

4.) 29 Jul 2018 00:48:28
Totally agree with all that GDS2

For large portions of the match we were sloppy, falling over the ball and lacked posistional sense, There seemed to be a lack of understanding amongst the youth players and quite often a simple 1-2 pass would lead to Liverpool regaining possession. i'm sure Bailly won't be too pleased especially after A. P done his job and cleared the ball in our on box. Herrera was terrible probably down to lack of playing time with the youth players but SMcT was caught out every time nearly. In fairness to the lads it was not all doom and gloom and had this been played in England then quite a few of the LFC players would have probably seen red. Sanchez at one staged got blasted by Klaven and no yellow given.

On a good note however Fred seemed right at home ( not too far i know ) but his composure to run towards our box pick up the ball and play out gave me some hope that he will be a good coup for us this season.

Andreas Periera was really good and i hope he stays put this season. I wouldlove to see him play with our strongest 11 as we always say. Players play better when they have good players around them.

5.) 29 Jul 2018 01:12:29
Positives: Pereira has gotten better each match at center mid, Sanchez looked lively again, and Fred looked very good in his cameo. He has good anticipation defensively and understands space well in his passing and moving.

Negatives: McTominay has struggled, he couldn't hold onto the ball at all, let alone move it forward at all. Long ball tactics were awfully hard to watch.

6.) 29 Jul 2018 07:50:17
Quite a few of the LFC players would have probably seen red? :D Please tell me who of the Liverpool players you think deserved a red card?

{Ed025's Note - thats called clutching at straws mate..

How long do you get to cancel your MUTV subscription?

1.) 22 Jul 2018 23:55:26
Have to have it a month. Just hope you don’t gauge your own eyes out it that time lol.

2.) 22 Jul 2018 23:55:53
One Month. I will do the same and i'm not watching the epl games either. I know how we are going to play and i don't enjoy that footy. I honestly had enough.

3.) 23 Jul 2018 00:05:31
The motm goes to me for staying awake.

4.) 23 Jul 2018 00:13:00
how do you cancel?
my PayPal says I'm due a charge next month.
I only want it for the pre season games.

5.) 23 Jul 2018 01:42:24
Rohan, I've no idea, mate. Our Sky TV is in my wife's name, and she takes care of it. My son and I are now feeling quite sheepish at how much we begged her to get it for us :)

6.) 23 Jul 2018 08:18:21
It comes as part of cable subscription in Portugal, but last week, they removed the channel from the list. Thank God.

7.) 23 Jul 2018 11:37:05
Watched most of the first half, I woke up at 12:30am and was glad I missed the second half.

8.) 23 Jul 2018 10:33:04
I've had it for years and love watching all of the content, especially the pre-season games, get to see some of the kids have a go and see what they are made of, especially in these early games against the Mexican / American sides.

The rest of the season the repeats and videos of people's goals etc are brilliant, I'll find myself just sat watching it for hours watching all of Scholesy's goals, last night it was still on after the game and I watched all of Rashford's goals. I know it is a bit expensive but I couldn't cancel it, such good content. I watched a great documentary on the Girls Under 16s team as well, a pretty good watch if you get chance while you have it for the month.

9.) 23 Jul 2018 15:32:28
Girls U16 game, you say.

Cheers, Ed001. Didn't know if he would embrace it, or see it as a challenge to his position. Glad to hear you think he would have at least been expecting it, rather than having it thrust on him. Thanks again.

{Ed001's Note - the plan was always to bring one in mate. He is used to working with a similar set up, very few clubs outside of England operate any other way.}

Hi, Ed001. Just wondering if you have any idea on Mourinho's feelings about us bringing in a DOF. Cheers.

He'd be my tentative choice, jred. Bright, intelligent, forward-thinking, and no little courage in always trying to play good football even when Bournemouth were struggling at times.
