Not me. Once he asked to leave United that was it for me.
To go to fucking City. An empty fucking stadium for a few more quid a week that he already doesn't know how to spend.

He got out to him, didn't dive in and got his foot to the ball, a split second earlier or later and it was out of play or saved. Knocking a 21 year old academy player in his first season for that, wise the fuck up!

I don't dislike Blackett, think he's played ok when I've seen him. He's a kid ffs and he's been playing in a shite defence when he's come in.

Ridiculous getting on Blackett's case for that ffs.

I'm more than happy with the way the match panned out. We totally outplayed Arsenal, missing key players, and the areas we were deficient we already knew about. Need a match winner (maybe Depay will be that without even getting another in). Need a Carrick replacement. Need someone better than Fellaini. Need some quality center backs, one if not two of them.

In contrast, Arsenal basically had a full strength team and were lucky to nick a goal with a deflection off a young substitute. Bra fucking o. I can't understand how pundits go on with this "arsenal will be contenders next season" shit. Yeah they look great against weak teams when the pressure's off because the title is already out of their reach. They come to a decent club's ground, boom, they're fucking inept. Same old same old. Wenger's well fucking past it, he should be running an academy training kids, because he's no interest in competing for trophies, he lost the bottle for it a decade ago.

So why didn't he go if that's what he really wanted??? Do you remember what we thought about Fergie and the management back then, you know when Rooney was being played out wide and miserable as fuck. Easier just to blame Rooney....... Here refresh your memory...

Sounds like a load of bollocks to me, lot's of money men taking advantage of a very real issue between Rooney and Fergie. Rooney was always going to get paid anyway.

Why didn't he go? Because we gave him more money. Oh sorry, did you think he was standing on principle and turned down the pay raise?

Everyone wants Blackett and the rest to succeed but he's not close to the level required to even be useful backup. In the games where we haven't played the kids/midfielders at centre back, our point rate is significantly better. Over a full season it works out to 87 points with Jones/Evans/Smalling/Rojo at CB or 56 points with at least one of McNair/Blind/Carrick/Blackett playing there. They're just not good enough yet.

That's right it was all about the money and he should have set the standard for the rest of the world by saying ' "No. No, I'm not taking it, people like Bman and Dozer will not respect me in the future. Fergie and the Glazers can do what they want but not me. You'd never find me arguing over race horses or signing book deals, or taking millions out of the club i now own through some kind of financial chicanery. Im better than that i want to do it with as much class as any 24 year old can muster!"

Rooney saw Ronaldo and Tevez leave to get replaced by shite. Minimum investment. In the market for potential instead of proven quality. He called it as we all see it. No problems there.
