'If It's Football, It's Vital'

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.
Vanilla Ice
You'll win nothing with pensioners!!!

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.

Hi Vanilla Ice - you and I are singing from the same hymn sheet - I will now officially forgive you for not buying any of the Sheikh's petrol and in comparison with the Glazers your guy Kenright is a saint - not rich but not bleeding the club dry ....... this lot are broke but theur stupid fans don't realise it.

Willy - you never get tired of trolling on here do you? You never get tired of spouting the same old boring nonsense? You never get tired of being a f***ing twunt!? You never get tired of having no life? You never get tired of being a scumbag? Ok then...

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.
TheFamousNo7
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

Wswilly3 is more concerned about United then his own midtable club. I afraid he knows more about united then some of united fans, thats why he is so sure about our downfall. well, willy, what you think had ever happened? every season in last 34 years, you and other bunch of losers thought this will be your year, but what you have won? ***** all. lmao. go and get some life, man.
cgl11
But this IS the year of mid table mediocrity for the broke Manure and the championship for the Blues of Manchester ............you know it makes sense. We love you Glazers oh yes we do.
Wswilly3
Yea the Coca Cola Championship for the Blues of Manchester ......... you know it makes sense.
