Thank's Greeny. It's not a repeat final of last year, United will play Barcelona on May 27th, It should be a great game and hopefully another cup back to Old Trafford.

A Kenyan fan of English football club Arsenal has hanged himself after his team's defeat by Manchester United.

The north London club was beaten 3-1 in the European Champions League semi-final second leg on Tuesday evening.

Suleiman Omondi, 29, who was watching in a bar in the capital, Nairobi, was incensed by the club's poor showing.

He left at half-time after arguing with a Manchester United fan and was found hanging from a rope in his house, still dressed in an Arsenal shirt.


The BBC's Josphat Makori in Nairobi says the unprecedented incident has shocked football fans in Kenya.

According to his friends, Mr Omondi was in good spirits at the beginning of the match and even when Arsenal conceded the first goal, he did not seem to be affected.


But things changed when the team conceded a second goal 11 minutes into the game.


A woman, who sat next to him in the bar, said Mr Omondi was so disappointed by Arsenal's poor performance that he broke down during half-time.

Another eyewitness told journalists that it was at this point that a Manchester United fan started taunting him.

"Suleiman got hold of him angrily by the neck and started pressing him so hard," he said.

"We quickly intervened and asked him to stop. Suleiman then stopped but he was so angry that he left in a rage."

His body was found on Wednesday morning.

Police officer David Bunei told the BBC the incident was being investigated.

It must have been frustrating but there's no need to get so hung up about it.  ::)

          Like Musky I think 3-1 don't discount any of the team from scoring except Edwin    Herby.

Post by: Nan on May 27, 2009, 04:52 PM
I`ll go along with the 3-1 score, in United`s favour. Don`t care who scores as long as the ball hits the back of that net. COME ON YOU REDS!!!

Thought we were in for a good game in the first 10 mins, then it steadily went down hill, for United at least. Barcelona truly deseved their win. Still, you can`t win `em all, and there`s always next season.

What do any Man.U. fans on here think about the proposed transfer of Ronaldo to Real Madrid?
Wow!!! £80,000000. Is any player really worth that much? I know he`s good , and has been a great asset to the team, but I`m sure that someone will come along who`s just as good, if not better. We must never forget that United are a team...not one man.

Hi
        It doesn't take long for people to put the boot in. He's a great player and while he was at United he played a lot of great games, just like David Beckham and Rued van Nistelroy but they all had to go, thats why United are the best known soccer teams in the world they get good players polish them up and sell them on for a big profit.            herby.
Title: Re: Manchester United F.C.
Post by: paul_b on June 12, 2009, 01:46 PM
Hi Lydia, Fergie would not have sold him for any kind of money to City. You dont sell your best player to your nearest rivals. Think Fergie would have shot him first, before he would let that happen.

Herby i think his arrogance and ego made him think he was bigger than the club. I think that was the last straw when he threw his rattle out of the pram, when he was substituted in the derby match. He was a fantastic player no doubt, but he spoiled it with his petulance.

Nistelroy might be backin the Premiership soon, Harry Redknapp wants him at Spurs. Great player he was.

hi paul yes I understand that and I  don't like ronaldo anyway as can't help remembering what he did to rooney that time and think he should have gone then.I know he's good but didn't like his arrogance. I used to go years ago when it was Steve coppell and Gordon hill and loved it.

Not a football fan myself but I always watch England play if it is a really big game. Patriotic duty and all that!! But is any footballer really worth £80,000,000??? If he is, then it would seem the game is just about 'big business' now! Sad really!

Im 47 , my Dad was a City Fan,as a youngster , I remember Leeds being a force to be reckoned with , and Derby ! Then as I got Older,Liverpool became awesome. I cannot deny MUFC have run the show for such a long time now,but a change at the top would be good,I follow city because of my dad I suppose,but I dont think one team winning everything every season is good for the game,even if city win this cup,it will still be a drop in the ocean compared to the reds.

Who would have thought that Maine Rd would be houses today.

It's all corporate now, Stocks and shares, all the players are from South America, Spain and Portugal.
When I stood on the terraces, foreign players meant they were from Scotland or Ireland.

It seems so very long ago.

It's seems a shame United is in the position it's in.

Anyway I see Arsenal bounced right back! and Aston Villa gave Blackburn  what for!

I agree- that was a throwback to another era (sorry pun not intended).  We don't want to go back to the days of throwing missiles on to the pitch.  The game was a good one and City had some near misses. We'll be back to beat United next year & still in with a good chance of winning FA Cup.  Come on, the Blues.......

Hi All...........This is a good example of 'Double-speak. (must have been listening to the Politicians)

From todays BBC website:


Manchester United 'value' sought by Red Knights group.


A spokesman for the Red Knights said "Our primary goals remain to facilitate a return of ownership of the club to its supporters and the community; and to restore the financial health of the club,"

In the same article: Their numbers so far also include Jim O'Neill, chief economist at Goldman Sachs and lawyer Mark Rawlinson, and it has recruited the Japanese investment bank Nomura to help it put together a bid.

What part of the (Manchester) Community does Nomura Bank belong to?



Just a thought.....

Manchester United midfielder Anderson was dragged unconscious from a burning wreckage seconds before it exploded after a car crash in Portugal over the weekend.

The Red Devils star is being investigated by police following reports he was out partying all night before the crash took place in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The Guardian reports that it is unclear who was driving as two other passengers were in Anderson's Audi R8 at the time of the crash, a car that only has room for two people.

The crash took place on a rural road in the Geres area of Braga and all three passengers were discharged from a local hospital later that day.

Witnesses told local media that the 22-year-old's "lifeless" body was pulled from the vehicle shortly before it exploded.

The Portuguese press quoted the Gestifute agency, which represents Anderson, as saying the former Porto player had suffered an "almighty scare"..

An absolute tragedy, R8's are exceptional cars, my thoughts are with the car I sincerely hope it can be repaired.  ;)

I agree with Vanessa. I think it`s time he grew up. A lot of these high paid players think they can do just about anything they want, both on the field and off. I think it`s about time they started to show a bit of loyalty, both to their clubs and everyone in their private lives. At one time, the older players lived and breathed football and knew how to behave themselves, whereas now it`s a case of "ME,ME,ME!! and loyalty be damned !!

United have been taking a lot of credit for keeping Rooney. Personally I think that wifey Colleen had a lot to do with it. Its well known that she doesn't want to leave Manchester. After his recent behaviour with problems with his trouser zip (it refuses to keep fastened), I can imagine her saying "you can leave Manchester but I'm not, so if you want to save this marriage and raise your child, you can stay put, also going to City is  a no no, I'm not putting up with the hate for anyone".

            I can't remember the first match I saw I'm pretty sure it was at Maine road United played there then. Old trafford had been bombed during the war. I remember seeing Jimmy Delaney playing they used to call him the gold ring because he had a bald head the best team in that era was when Jack Rowley was the centre forward Henry Cockburn was half back Next it was the turn of the Busby babes I saw Bobby Charlton making his debut at Old Trafford against Sheffield and he scored two goals but what a team they were I also saw the first match after Munich somethying I'll never forget I watched them till 65 when I left for Aus. still a rabid fan and always will be.   herby

I think it's time for City to win the league. Two more wins and it's theirs. Deservedly so in my most humble opinion.
Today United failed to register a shot on goal and the result didn't surprise me at all. I'll tell you something for free, City will thrash Newcastle at the Sports Direct Stadium. United won't get a win at Sunderland.  Still, both teams qualify for Europe so that's a bonus for the city of Manchester.

As a Manchester United supporter I would like to send my congratulations to Manchester City on their success. I've never understood this hatred that has developed between the United and City supporters, at one time it was light hearted rivalry, now it seems to be out and out war which leads to violence, what a shame.

I can remember going to a United match in the late 70's, we were all cheering united when this lone voice sounded amongst us for the rival team, we turned round wondering what the hell he was doing in the United supporters section, but not one person said or did anything to him, we just carried on enjoying the game. Can you imagine that happening now.

I was in Amsterdam on Sunday night and waiting anxiously for a text from home where I knew my family would be watching the game. I waited and waited - nothing, so I was prepared for the worst. How many times have we Blues been disappointed over the years?  Then I got THE call, could hardly make out the words for all the yelling but what a great moment!  I have been a true Blue since 1966 so have waited a long long time. My brother in Australia didn't sleep on Sun night/Mon morning; he was 18 when City last won the title. Husband and son travelled up to Manchester for the victory parade on Monday- they said it was a great atmosphere & the City centre was a sea of blue.

I'm reasonably sure that the view is in the Coldhurst area of Oldham and probably looking down, towards the hospital on Rochdale Road, from the old streets which once would have led up to Oldham Edge. The area was completely blitzed in the late 60s/early 70s. Certainly nowt to do with Manchester United.

Don't forget, as well as letting United play at Maine Road because of the Luftwaffe damage at Old Trafford (obviously directly in the flight path for all the heavy industry at Trafford Park and the shipping at Salford docks), City also loaned their ground out to United during the period that United first entered the European Cup (no Champions League nonsense in those days - just straight knockout with a home and away leg to decide who went into the next round). I think this would have been at about the time of the Munich disaster as old, grainy, black and white newsreel footage, from the time, shows home games at Maine Road. These were midweek games and needed to be at City's ground because Maine Road had floodlights and United had to wait a year or so more before they installed floodlights at Old Trafford. Two games I recall from that period were United against Bilbao (a decent side in those days and up there challenging Real Madrid) and also the game against the Belgian side, Anderlecht. Against Anderlecht, United ran out easy winners in the "home" tie, defeating the visitors something like 10-2.

It is a sad state of Affairs when an American Company Who OWN Manchester United, cannot decide which will make them the most Money, Listing in Asia, or America, to pay off their interest debt at United. It's a pity we cannot have people involved in Football who want to be there for the love of the game, not the largest return on their investment.

Daftjack.

It's a fantasy to believe that football was always about "for the love of the game". Go back to the era when Glossop entered the Football League, they were financed by their chairman and benefactor, Sir Samuel Hill-Wood, who then became the chairman at Arsenal. He had raised his fortune as a cotton magnate and, no doubt, some of that fortune went towards enabling success for Arsenal. His grandson, Peter Hill-Wood, is the modern day chairman of the club. They wouldn't put money into the game if they thought it was going to run away down a drain. Similarly, Louis Edwards at Manchester United, who made his money in the butchery and meat trade. That same money enabled him to become the chairman of Manchester United and this was also the role of his son, Martin who was chairman from 1980 until 2002. Either these people had more money than sense or they saw an opportunity to invest some of their existing fortune, no doubt to either secure or improve on it.

Long gone are the days when football clubs came out of organisations such as churches (Manchester City, Everton, Bolton Wanderers etc) or welfare groups attached to factories and workplaces (Manchester United, Stoke City, Woolwhich Arsenal and the like). Now, whether we like it or not, any club needs investment. Sadly, love just isn't enough.

I've not watched them much on tele this season so I don't know which players have not been pulling their weight. I know this Dutch manager whose name is being banded about has European experience but some players who have played under him have called him, amongst other things, rigid and dictatorial. It does not bode well for next season especially as there may be no place for Giggsy in the setup. One last wish. I hope Liverpool win the title and NOT the noisy neighbours.

In football, Kenneth, or any sport for that matter, no one has a divine right to total domination of their particular field (pardon the pun). United have had many years at the top - it won't do them any harm to take a back seat for a while. In the meantime, for the rest of us, life goes on.

City don't really deserve it. Owned by the United Arab Emirates, with the wealth of a small oil rich country behind them. and even fined for breaking fairplay financial rules. They have had more money to spend than any other team in recent history.

Of course the Premier League winners deserve it - the league table says enough. The players who achieved that league position have no control over who owns their club so they are to be applauded for their achievement not derided. In football, Having more money than the next club is not an infringement - in fact, it probably suggests that you are going to be able to pay your bills on time, not let anybody down and, generally speaking, not be seen as a bad risk. Sadly, too many football clubs now fall into the category of being bad risks - hence the demise of clubs like Leeds United (do you remember how they had to sell all their star names in one go to be able to make ends meet not too many years back?) and more recently, the shenanigans at clubs like Portsmouth, Glasgow Rangers, Stockport County and Darlington, to name just a few. Manchester United have had a vault full of money over the years - hence the success in being able to bring the likes of Wayne Rooney, Fabien Bartez, Anderson, Juan Mata, Ruud Von Nistalrooy, Robin Van Persie and Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford, not to mention Rio Ferdinand, at the time, Britain's costliest footballer. We won't even mention Marouane Felaini who is generally seen as one of their worst buys.

PS The financial penalty that is currently being directed at Manchester City relates purely to Europe and does not relate to their participation in domestic football, where there has been no suggestion of any infringement at all.

I agree that's the best thing to do -  getting back to reality watching players who play only for enjoyment and not for megadosh. As it's not practical for me to get over to Ashton (last watched them around 1960) I am thinking of going up to Fleetwood who are going great guns at the moment in League One.

While on the subject of football, are there any football pitches left on Ashton Moss? There were quite a lot when I played in the late 1950s. Personally I think it's a travesty what has been done to the moss - it's unrecognisable from when I was last there, according to the photos I've seen. Just an opinion of course.

United seem to be shooting themselves in the foot too often these days and they are likely to miss a Euro spot if it continues. I went to Old Trafford with my son recently to watch the Chelsea game and thought they defended better than of late (apart from the goal). Chelsea are a very slick side but had few chances. As bad luck would have it I was queuing for the train outside the ground when United equalised in the 94th minute! I think the managed ought to bite the bullet and drop Rooney - he simply isn't effective enough (just a thought).

Sadly, I think United have to get as much as they can out of Rooney as he signed a five year contract last season, under David Moyes. Drop him and you are still paying his huge wages. However, it might dint his pride if he was to be dropped.

I didn't watch the match yesteday but from what the papers say it was pretty diabolical. It's a very awkward time for the powers that be at United - they either have to tough it out and stick with LVG to see what happens in the next few months or else get rid which would cost them an arm and a leg, as he is only half way through his contract. I'm not sure about Giggsy - remember what happened to Wilf McGuinness. Guardiola is seemingly out of reach and Mourinho is not the answer - the way he treated that lady trainer at Chelsea was disgraceful.

I agree Fudge - what Leicester are doing this season is refreshing and good for the game. They should have won that cup-tie against Tottenham this week but for a silly player handling the ball and giving away a penalty at the end. I hope they end up winning something.

Have to agree with you Fudge. That was the whole reason for the construct of the interlocking leagues. Every team has a chance to think that they can one day go to the top. Think back over the years of teams that have been top dogs and are now 'has-beens'. No one wants to see their team beaten, but it happens to the best of teams. Think of teams of yesteryear like Preston North End and Blackburn Rovers, Newcastle and Leeds and all the rest. Stay Well.   Ayess.

Post by: ayess on January 14, 2016, 03:31 AM
Yes Fudge, I remember when the league started up again after the war. When the cap on players wages was seven pounds a week. It wasn't thought correct for them to receive more than tradesmen fitters etc who were working 44 hour weeks for playing 90 minutes football a week. It appears that the best way to spoil anything is to throw money at it. Sport is no longer sport once money becomes involved.    Stay well.    Ayess

Personally I do not want to see Mourinho at Old Trafford - he is too controversial -(to put it mildly) and Giggs is untried. I really don't know where we go from here but whoever comes in ought to get rid of much of the foreign dead wood that has been bought so expensively.

When I think back to the 1950s Busby Babes and recall how Matt Busby paid only £29.999 for Tommy Taylor because he didn't want to saddle Tommy with a record £30,000 transfer tag. Today that amount would only buy Pogba's left kneecap.

I only saw the goals on tv but the United defence played like schoolboys. What they desperately need are five or so talented Lancashire lads who have dreamed of playing for United since boyhood (like the class of 92) but instead we have a bunch of foreign mercenaries. The day is fast approaching when Mourinho will field a team with no British players in. I would love to know what Fergie thinks but I guess we never will.

Yes, Fudge, it is nice to see other sides getting some success after United's dominance in past years (at least twenty if my memory is correct). But let's not run away with the idea that it's only the bigger and more wealthier clubs who can have success and that United have never bought success. Of course they have bought success - how did they pay all those European players they previously had on their books (Christiano Ronaldo, Peter Schmeikel, Eric Cantona, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, the list is endless)? They certainly weren't paying them in threepenny bits!

Such vivid memories even after all this time.

Back in the day when Alex Ferguson managed Man U, the club scouts identify a brilliant young Nigerian player and sign him up.

The first training session gets underway. The young African lad is standing with the rest of the team and Ferguson places a ball on the ground. "This is "ball", understand? Over there is "goal"" he says, pointing to the goal. He then swings his leg in a kicking motion and "Kick...yes?" "KIIIICK". "Kick....ball...goooooal!"

At this point the Nigerian lad plucks up courage and protests..."Please Mr Ferguson, my English is very good, there is no need to speak to me like that, it is quite patronis....".

"Pipe down lad, I'm talking to Rooney....."

I know it's early days but I've always said the club has brought in the wrong manager and too many wrong players. Anyway we shall see.

That's what I said 18 months ago and that's what I say now. For years, the 'Special One' has been living on his past reputation. He does not have the mindset of the great United managers and players of the past. No-one fears United now like they used to do. The crowd were leaving in numbers before the end of the game and that is rare.

Booooo!

The game in question, Jaywit, would be the Fourth Round FA Cup game between Manchester City and Bradford Park Avenue which City lost 8-2. This round was played over two legs (to create additional revenue for all clubs who participated that year and after the war years had reduced income for most clubs to almost zero). The first leg had been played on the previous Saturday (26th January 1946) and City had won 3-1. The return game (the second leg) was played on the following Wednesday (30th January 1946) and City would have been expected to add to their goal tally but, clearly, the outcome was not what would have been expected. The aggregate score (9-5) was easily enough to send Bradford into the next round.

No floodlights in those days, so the game would have been played in the afternoon. Given that we were in the depths of winter at the time, it is highly likely that there might have been a 2-00 pm kick off as any later would have meant the game finishing in darkness. Apparently, the pitch was covered in puddles and the Bradford team bus was late arriving at Maine Road having almost been stuck in the snow coming over the Pennines.

The eventual winners of the FA Cup that year were Derby County and, later that same year, the Football League competition resumed its normal format having not been played since war had been declared in 1939.

Hope this helps.

I was still at school but I was eagerly anticipating the Isle of Man TT in June, Mike Hailwood v Giacomo Agostini, Mike the bike won the 250, 350 and 500cc races, Ago was 2nd in the 350 and retired in the Senior race.

I think England MAY survive to go through from their Group stage ... but after that - I think it will be another disappointment.  As a dual national, LOL,  I have Australia to support too (But don't think they'll survive their Group stage)

Ah well, it seems like a well run competition..... cheers, Larry E.

The young Thai footballers trapped in a flooded cave have been told they will need to learn to dive.

Once Brazil are knocked out of the world cup, they are going to send Neymar to teach them.

So sorry they did not make the final they did us proud but football is a funny old thing it just all about luck as I have said before you can be the best team and lose to a hopeless team but Croatia was a good team as well and I rather it was won like that than go to penalties as I always hate that Fudge xx
