United - Golden Oldies Not a Problem!

United - Golden Oldies Not a Problem!

Football as Saint and Greavsie once said can be a funny old game.

Not too long along Sir Alex Ferguson indulged in some mind games with our title rivals, Chelsea, suggesting their squad was ageing.

Now, as the new season approaches, we stand accused of much the same thing with Paul Scoles (35), Ryan Giggs (36), Gary Neville (35) and Edwin van der Sar (39) all in the twilight of their careers.

But one of those golden oldies, Paul Scholes, doesn`t perceive age as a problem remarking,

"We have some very experienced players, but we are not an old squad."

"It doesn`t really matter what your age is if you are playing games."

"The hunger and the desire are still there. And all of the players have got that here."


Hopefully those creaking bones won`t let us down!

You haven't really got any choice as you are broke and the Glazers keep dipping their hands in the till.

Hey Willy it's Vanilla Ice - you must love coming on other sites and starting trouble, ha! But the "golden oldies" have had their day and United aren't bringing up the youngsters to replace them... and they haven't got the funds to buy in top class players.

Still good payers the oldies, but lack of pace, niggling injuries and general rustiness will catch up to them sooner or later. Can't see any of the oldies playing more than a game per week for united this season unless fergie gets desparate.

According to Sneijder Mourinho will fill his ambition as the manager of Man U. So after Fergie I don't think we've got too much to worry about guys.

Deon - to prove your point - you are broke - you have bought no exciting players - the Glazers are ripping you off - you are on the downward curve - you are the Rags from the Swamp
