You think I own one? :lol: I have a Welsh one stuffed away somewhere, it might come out if our team ever becomes competitive enough to beat a half decent team :P

The scenes in Wigan when they survived relegation were electric. Both their fans were going mental.

etc etc. :P

On the subject of Neuer, I think he's undeniably fantastic but he could use some work on the ground. Mint in the air, not so great on the ground. Still would have liked him, though. I'm still not all that clued up about De Gea.

If we were going with a young keeper, I'd have loved Igor Akinfeev to come here, but looks like he's staying put.

The thing about Neuer is that he still so young. He will only get better and better. I am really glad he is now my team's goal keeper.

Of course. He has so much time to develop and I'd have had him at Old Trafford in a heartbeat!

I'm just worrying about the distinct lack of quality in united's midfield and the only transfer movements seem to be on defensive players and Ashley Young :?

Give it time. None domestic transfers can't take place until July 1st.

That said. I'd like us to at least bang in an offer on Modric. I'm a big fan of his, reckon he'd be great for us.

Yeah I definately rate Modric. I'd be happy with Modric, Nasri (doubt it will happen due to the clubs rivalry) or even De Rossi to just add some bite into the midfield.

I was actually on about the last FA Cup final we were in back in 01(?) against Chelsea. Most boring match of all time.
Bring back the glory days :lol:

Unless you count playoff finals, but they were just as bad.

Those were the days, Brian Little is such a legend both as a player and a manager :D
That team in the 90's was ace, not as good as 70's etc but I wasn't alive then :lol:

Hey, be thankful. At least McLeish signed Marlon King BEFORE moving to Villa rather than after. :lol:

I'm still umming and ahhing over us signing Ashley Young, but the idea's grown on me. Think he could be very effective for us.

Also, it's nice to have someone who can take a bloody corner.

David de Gea has had a medical at Carrington today. :)

I adored our absolutely dire attempt at hiding him from the press;
