Anfield boos Evra in support of racist Suarez. #mufc

When Anfield, and I say Anfield because it was obviously the majority of Liverpool fans in the ground, started booing Evra each time he was in possesion I realised that they were saying it's in their view wrong to stand up to racism.

That is the only crime Evra has committed, to stand up and be counted in support for modern day civilised values.  For them to imply that he is a villain in the scandal that erupted after Luis Suarez racially abused him is to my mind incredibly saddening.  We have virtually taken backward steps in time, the progress made in the fight for an end to racism in football has been halted in Liverpool.  That is a fact. 

'Kin King Kenny and his Klan have excercised such ignorance and recklessness that they have undoubtedly set the stage for a whole new wave of victims to be made.  We have already seen the effect:  A Liverpool fan has been caught on camera doing something I haven't seen in a while and hopefully won't see again: the monkey impression.

My mind boggled as I heard the scousers sing we're not racist, we only hate mancs.  Only seconds before they started to boo a man who their own player admitted to racially abusing. I feared that KKKs comments during the debacle sent all the wrong signals to fans around the world, but most importantly to the Liverpoo fans.

He was encouraging the fans to support a man who I am certain would have been sacked from Manchester United and I hope from any other huge club like Liverpool. Because we must acknowledge Liverpools' global recognition, even if they haven't won a league title in donkeys years they have international exposure and a massive fan base accross the world.  What 'Kin King Kenny has done is to in my opinion, is to ignore the obvious consequences and advice from his PR team and forge ahead in blind support of guilty racist for one simple selfish and stupid reason.  To keep his best player.  The sheer naivity of such a decision points to a level of ignorance and selfishness that is inexcusable for a professional football manager.

i really  cannot see any other reason for him to support Suarez, because if a player is going to behave like that he will only be detrimental to the club it's public image and it's global appeal.  This is the point at which I believe KKK put his own career and success as a football manager ahead of the clubs interests.
It's certainly not the love-in that Klanfield boasts about but more like that they are being shafted by 'kin King Kenny.  And looking at the league position they hold, without so much as a reach-around to take the pain away.

I say good effin' luck to them, I can only see this ending badly.  It's a bit like the blind leading the blind but they can still distinguish colours.

Manchester United animated gifs, Arsenal and Bolton games. #mufc

I have made some more gifs from the last two games, they seem to be quite popular so I will continue to produce them when I can find the time. I am going to continue to use the picasa web albums slideshow because it reduces load time of the site.   I have however noticed an intermittent bug where the gifs don't show.  It never happens when I'm logged in so any feedback would be appreciated if you are or are not having problems viewing the animated gifs.

Patrice Evra to play at Anfield. #mufc

First of all I'd just like to say that I haven't given up blogging but I have been very poorly the last week.
I've probably sweated a stone of liquids out of my body, every morning when I wake up I have had a pool of sweat under my body.  It's as disgusting as it sounds and I have actually been freezing cold all the while.
Well I will be travelling to Anfield on Saturday no matter what I feel like!

I wouldn't miss this match for anything,  thousands of United fans in the Liverpool slums!  It's gonna be a top day out win or lose.  I can't really predict the outcome of this match because it's one of the only games in the season that Liverpool really shine in.  They seem to care more about beating United than they do winning the league.  Week in week out they put in shambolic performances, 'kin King Kenny (KKK) has all the hallmarks of an 80's manager and signed 80's players to suit. (Caveman Carrol)  However they have managed some excellent results this season, the desire they showed against City in the two Carling Cup matches was palpable but then they continue the spiral into mediocrity against the leagues lesser teams.

I suppose Uniteds' Premier League era dominance and their hilarious fall from grace only helps to reinforce the fact that it's the biggest game of the season for Liverpool year after year!  I mean ffs they haven't been to Wembley for 16 years.

Mike Phelan has told the press the Patrice Evra will play for United in the Saturday FA Cup tie at Anfield.
well it's gonna be interesting to see how the racist Liverpool fans behave this weekend.  After the unbelievable series of events and PR own goals that KKK and his clan have made over the Suarez debacle one can only guess as to what's gonna happen this weekend.  This surely has to be the most eagerly anticipated tie of the season.

Here's what Andy Cole, United legend had to say when interviewed by

Cole: Anfield win is overdue

Manchester United legend Andy Cole believes the Reds’ league win over Arsenal points the way to FA Cup glory at Anfield this weekend.
The former striker feels the current players should be confident after beating the Gunners 2-1 in their own backyard and is willing Sir Alex Ferguson’s men to extend the winning streak at Liverpool’s expense.
“Look at the way we performed against Arsenal – if we go to Anfield and play like that, then we’ve got to be confident,” Cole told “Liverpool have been struggling for form recently, and if we play like we did at Arsenal then I can’t see why we can’t get a very positive result.”

Cole was speaking before Liverpool completed a two-legged win over Man City in the Carling Cup semi-final. All square on the night means the Manchester clubs’ three trips to Anfield so far this term have all ended evenly – City, like United, drew 1-1 there in the league. In fact, the Reds haven't beaten Liverpool away in four years. Cole feels it’s time for his old club to buck that trend and book a place in the next round of the Cup.

“We’re long overdue a good result at Anfield,” Cole told us. “I thought we played well there earlier this season and Liverpool aren’t scoring too many goals at the moment. I think we can go there with a real sense of belief.”
Even though United will have more supporters inside the ground than usual - due to a greater away-ticket allocation for FA Cup ties - Cole still feels the partisan home fans present a challenge.

“Even if you’ve got five or six thousand away fans there, you’ve still got to silence the thirty-odd
thousand Liverpool fans by keeping the ball and playing the way that United play,” he advised. “Liverpool will be very worried about us because they can see we're in good form. But we need to silence their crowd.”
Cole is a past master at quietening The Kop, having bagged a few goals there for United.
“When I was in the team I used to love playing at Anfield,” he reminisced. “I was very fortunate that the manager always used to play me against Liverpool because I always seemed to get myself a goal there. I don’t know what it was. It’s a special arena that always used to bring the best out of me.”

The former number nine did his personal damage in league visits to Liverpool, but he also has experience of helping to beat United’s arch-rivals in the FA Cup – in the 1996 final at Wembley and later at Old Trafford, during a daunting run to the 1999 final.

“That year we were in the ascendancy, we feared no-one,” said Cole, reflecting on '99. “We always believed that whoever we played against, we could always knock them over. Even if we were a goal behind going into the last few minutes, we’d still beat teams. That’s how it was when we beat Liverpool in the Cup that year. We were knocking on the door for 85 minutes and then finally the goals came and we won the game.
“If you’re going to win the Cup then you’re going to have to knock over the tough teams. If you do that in the earlier rounds, hopefully it won’t be as tough if you reach the final.”

Here are some images from the Arsenal away match thanks to, it was a very physical game and what I mean by that is Rooney and Nani were kicked all over the pitch and the referee was a complete utter c@#t.  Song led with the elbow to tag Rooney on the jaw, Nani went off injured after a tackle from behind as did Welbeck.  I hope we get some guys back for Saturday.

Manchester United betting for Arsenal match. #mufc

Manchester United betting will probably reach record highs as Manchester United fans are bouyed by Arsenals poor form.  Although Manchester United have conceded a few goals away at Newcastle, previous betting has been profitable for Man United fans.  (Images from Manchester United vs Bolton athletic Jan 2012).

Arsenal have been struggling all season and were battered 8-2 in a game where nobody could have predicted the crushing scoreline.  Anyone betting on that one would have got some tidy odds indeed.

One of my pals has gone for the double bet of Manchester United vs Arsenal, betting that United win.  Doubled up with an away win bet on Tottenham Hotspur.  He's betting that Spurs will defeat Manchester City at The Etihad Stadium. Spurs are 3/1 for the away win and United are priced at 13/8.

Another freind of mine has added The Masters snooker betting to the mix to bump his odds up to around 100/1.  Needless to say; the drinks will be on him if all goes his way!

I think the injuries that Arsenal are suffering from have given the gamblers from Manchester some extra confidence in betting on United.  Arsenal have as many players as United in the physio room.  It's shocking really:-  between the two teams and all their injured players there is a squad capable of finishing at the  top end of the premiership table!  They could be called Crocked Athletic Football Club.

Here's the full list of injured players as of this week, for those of you who like to do your betting from a statistical viewpoint.

Player        Condition          Expected Return*


 T Henry                  Calf Muscle Strain         22nd Jan                      
M Arteta                 Calf/Shin Injury              22nd Jan                       
F Coquelin               Hamstring Injury             31st Jan

L Fabianski              Gashed Knee                   no return date
V Diaby                  Hamstring Injury              17th Mar 12
C Jenkinson             Stress Fracture               no return date
K Gibbs I                 nguinal Hernia                31st Jan 12
B Sagna                   Broken Leg                    31st Jan 12
J Wilshere                 Ankle/Foot Injury           16th Feb 12

 Manchester United
D Welbeck                 Knee Injury                        22nd Jan12
P Jones                       Knock                               no return date
C Smalling                   Knock 22nd                      Jan 12
Anderson                    Knock                               no return date
A Young                     Ankle/Foot                         Injury 11th Feb 12
D Fletcher                   Bowel Condition                no return date
N Vidic                       ACL Knee Injury               Jun 12
M Owen                     Thigh Muscle Strain            11th Feb 12
T Cleverley                 Ankle/Foot Injury               11th Feb 12
T Bebe ACL Knee      Injury                                 5th  Feb 12

I am not convinced that Tottenham are capable of beating Manchester City and I won't be betting on those Premiership teams on Sunday.  Although Spurs have been in great form they don't have a fully fit squad to chose from, therefore I think City will scrape the win.  This is undoubtedly a better time to play City than any other period this year.  Since the start of the season this is the weakest they have been.
The Torre brothers are away at the African cup of nations and they have injuries to Silva, Balotelli and Richards as well as the suspened Kompany making this the smallest squad Mancini has had to pick from all year.  I'm sure Manchester City betting will still be strong as they remain the odds favourite for this game.

Transfer news January window 2012 #mufc

The transfer window is open again and while everyone expects Citeh and Chelski to get their oil money out Manchester United fans have been hoping that we might sign at least a midfielder.  Injuries to Tom Cleverley and Anderson mean that last seasons grumblings have started all over again.

Calls for a top class midfielder could be heard and well, what do ya know; we signed one.  Fergie has managed to sign one of the best midfielders of the last 10 years, a player who has the most impressive passing range of (in my opinion) anyone on the planet.

He has signed my favourite player, the one and only Paul Scholes.   Not who everyone was hoping for but I feel he was our best player for the first 10-15 games of last season and that he retired too soon.  I am so glad that I get to see him play again and I was over-the-moon when the announcement was made on Derby day.

I hope he can stay fit and get his fitness back quickly so that he can continue to help us out in this injury crisis.  It's comforting for me to think that he is in and around young Tom Cleverley and Pogba during training as they are now once again, learning from the best.

Here's how the weeks' tranfer stories have broken according to Skysportsnews in reverse chronological order.
