Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Again with the "Top Red" obsession, Danni? Have you considered seeing a therapist?

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

I think people are buying into the "ungrateful brat" storyline too much. Sterling's "tantrum" was just a performance that he had to do to make the move happen. For all we know, it could even have been the Liverpool management that asked him to make a spectacle of himself so that the supporters woul...

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

I must admit, I was starting to think city would just give up on Sterling, even if they genuinely believe he's worth almost £50million, they must have a hint of hesitation after seeing his petulant behaviour, not something you ideally want to associate with your club. As far as the scouse fans go, t...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

From BBC Sportsday Live: Want big football transfer news? Here you go.... Turkish club Fenerbahce say they have begun talks with Dutch forward Robin van Persie and his club Manchester United over the 31-year-old's transfer. That to be suggests that negotiations are at a very early stage, in contrast...

Re: Squad

I would have loved to see him get a couple good years paired with Rio... Hummels or Ramos would be good though... he's got the talent, training and experience is what he needs... That's pretty much what I said previously, when Rio and Vidic were at the club, they were both automatic starters, so he...

Re: Squad

Sorry to hear that Swampy, though it's good to know all the constant bickering on here is good for something! On another note, we really, REALLY need to fucking sign someone soon, anyone, just so we've got something more interesting to talk about! This Rooney debate is one that will never, ever reac...

Re: Newbies: Introduce yourself here!

I never really bothered with Redcafe. Tried the official United forum back in the day (long before I ever discovered Rant, and probably before it even existed), and it was cringe-worthy, people are so determined on there that an opinion is only valid if it's optimistic to the point of blind naivety.

Re: TV and Film - What you watching?

Anyone else watching Humans on Channel 4 at the moment? I'm loving it, it's creepy as fuck, but quite gripping too!

Re: Squad

Rooney wouldn't be the first player to approach his 30s and find something of a renaissance in his career. Look at Teddy Sheringham, he was already 30 when we signed him, I think, first season looked ok but not a patch on Cantona, who he effectively replaced, second season was largely used as a sub,...

Re: Squad

The fact is Rooney has scored over 20 goals in two of the last six league seasons, and on neither occasion did we win the league. That suggests to me that while Rooney is an excellent player, he has perhaps never been good enough for a top side to build its team and tactics around him, because you ...
