    This isnt how Vidic speaks, nor how he writes..his English is not this advanced. Doesnt seem to be a word for word copy..

    @Grognard: “Fergie of late only like poor keepers” hope SAF reads this coz it might make him realise something about himself. Foster will cost us big tym.

    @spizzy: wow! spizzy, thats grand optimism right there. Though i woud gladly take a 1 nil in from spurs. We will be in a very good position if we manage 6/9 points from the games vs arsenil, spurs and man pity. we already have 3. Not bad

    @Ondii Oketchii: We have all of next week to moan, groan and rant about how much we suck, but I never take that attitude towards a match. I may change my view while watching the game, like i did against the arses and burnley but never prior to a match. I’m always optimistic that somehow united will put in an amazing performance and prove me wrong for criticizing fergie and the rest of them, except berba of course :smile:, he’s pure class in my eyes. The first twenty minutes for me determine how much venom I’ll spew the following week.

    @spizzy: way 2 go. am the same though 4 me the amount of venom i’ll throw is normally dertemined like 1 hr before the game. The team selection sets my mood for the game, its when I see the likes of oshea, park, neville on the team sheet that I begin my venom spitting.

    So I just popped out for a quick coffee (in London) and saw a big young guy walking down the street in a Tosic jersey. Random.

    @Penn0r: What exactly are you trying to say or insinuate?

  13. Grognard
    September 11, 2009

    @Beachryan: The only way to explain that is the bloke was probably of Serbian heritage. Otherwise, why would I waste money and buy a jersey of a reserve player?

    Not trying to insinuate anything – just nobody else noticed that is not Vidic-speak at all? not even remotely resembling.

    Thanks alot redrich your help is very much appreciated, what I would like to know how he is rated amoungst all of the united fans on this blog I would also like some feedback from grognard if possible as I do respect his opinion when it comes to goalkeepers. One more thing if I wanted to reply to someone in particular like I just did to Redrich is there a certain link that I can go to to bring their name up different to the regular text. By the way, am looking forward to sitting down with my son and watching tghe game tomorrow, I know that spurs are on form at the moment but I am predicting a united win

  20. Red Ranter
    September 12, 2009

    @keith: Akinfeev is among the best young goalkeepers in the world at the moment. Grognard has been glowing in praise for Akinfeev countless times before on this blog. He is among his favourite keepers I believe. I also rate him quite high. I’m surprised you don’t seem to have heard much about him already.

    One thing’s for sure, I doubt he’ll come cheap.

    @keith: Clicking on the light gray arrow to the right of the commentators name will allow you to reply to that specific comment. It’s a good thing to do as well, so we all know who you’re talking to! :smile:

    Thanks alot Redrich I do appreciate your help but what I would like is some feedback from other United fans on this site as to how they rate him and that would include you Grognade as I do respect your opinions on goalkeepers. Is there a link that I need to go to if I wanted to reply to a particular person like i am replying to Redrich so that their name is in a different colour text to the message.

    Looking forward to sitting down with my son tomorrow and watching the game, I know that Spurs are an form but I am predicting a win to united with a very tight game.

    @Redrich: Thanks alot Redrich as you can see that I have carried out your instructions and the first one was to the Red Ranter himself, what can I say.

    By the way I notice that this site is very quiet at this time Iam certain all of us are not on GMT and surly I am not the only one at work after midnight.

    @keith: You’re right we’re not all on GMT, but it seems to get quiet this time of day, usually.
    Perhaps if you join the ranks more often, you could stir things up a bit! :smile: :smile:

    Is Tevez really gonna miss the derby game because of injury, or is Sparky sheltering him from a shower of phlegm when he makes his OT return??

    I think the latter.! This gutless Argie has no stomach for the big stage, and certainly not when there’s an element of adversity attached to it.

    Where’s all you’re verbal bravado now, Carlos?? :evil: :evil:

    Well I doubt he’ll come at all then!! :lol:

    Well I’ve just finished watching the England v Croatia game for the first time, and while England did dominate and take some/most of their opportunities, I thought Croatia played like a three legged horse. They seemed to be terribly motivated for such an important game, and handled the English pressure like it was a mere friendly.
    It’s great we’re going to SA, and probably with a decent seeding too, but the nature of this game didn’t tell me a thing about our prospects there!!

    @Redrich: It does amaze me how so many will ask the simplest question s on here when all it takes is Google and wikipedia to usually open a plethora of sites containing info about the person place or thing. :grin:

    @keith: I have spoken about Akinfeev on many occasions in the past. I do not rate him as high Neuer, Adler, Boruc or Frey but I would place him right after that when it comes to keepers who are great and can be bought. No point mentioning Buffon and Casillas as they are lifers with their respective clubs.

    Akinfeev is an excellent shot stopper and has tremendous reflexes. His distribution is good and his positioning and concentration is also good. My only concerns with him is he struggles a little mor eon crossed balls into the box (not as bad as Foster) and his lack of English could be a problem when communicating with his defense. On that I am in agreement with Fergie. I know that Neuer, Adler have workable English and Boruc has played in Scotland long enough to be fluent. Then again, they don’t really speak English in Scotland but at least Fergie will understand him and vice versa. :grin: :wink:

    I like Akinfeev and I would not complain if we signed him but we will really be missing the boat if we don’t go after Neuer or at least Adler. Two of the very best young keepers I have ever seen and Neuer is one of the best I have ever seen period.

  31. Grognard
    September 12, 2009

    @Red Ranter: True he would not come cheap, but then again who does these days? He would be a cheaper solution to Neuer, Adler, Frey or Boruc who all play with bigger clubs in bigger leagues that will demand more just because of their status and league. Players from Russia aren’t cheap but they aren’t overpriced either. Pavlyuchenko, Pogrebnyak, Arshavin and others have come for a lot less than i feel they are worth. Only Chelsea paid above the value of the very good Zhirkov.

    I’m thinking about what’s been going on at Stamford Bridge of late and the title of an old Elvis Costello song comes to mind “I don’t want to go to Chelsea”. The lyrics don’t work but I do like humming the title a lot. :lol:

  33. jos
    September 12, 2009

    @Grognard: you still think boruc is good? i think he is been commiting far too many errors for a goal keeper of that class!

    Neuer and Adler on the other hand are class.

  34. jos
    September 12, 2009

    @Grognard: Also dont know much about frey but Lloris has successfully replaced him as france GK No.1. Lloris also rated by many to be the best young goalie (almost as good as casillas/bufoon)

  35. Redrich
    September 12, 2009

    @Grognard: I know that, but it’s only fair to give a start to someone who’s dipping his foot in the water.
    Wouldn’t give him a second chance though! :lol: :lol:

  36. Redrich

    @Grognard: Isn’t a bitch, when we got Valencia for about the same as Arsenal got Arshavin.

    Value is, as SAF does!! :roll: :roll:

  37. Grognard
    September 12, 2009

    @jos: Boruc big weakness is concentration and focus. When he is concentrating I think he is absolutely awesome. However, he had his marriage breakup cause him a lot of problems last year from what I heard. As that is no little thing as I can relate, it can really mess with a man’s mind. I think he is over that now and I expect a big season. He also needs a change of scenery. When it comes to raw save ability and reflexes, I doubt anyone is better than him except maybe Neuer. Of course Neuer is the complete package which makes him a better buy with less risk. Still Pee Wee Herman or the late Benny Hill would have been better in goal than Ben Frakken Foster.

  38. Grognard
    September 12, 2009

    @jos: Frey is very flakey and a bit of weirdo. He’s a total head case other than that, he too is a great shot stopper but he put down Domenich many times in the press and this is why he is not in the French plans.

  39. Grognard
    September 12, 2009

    @Redrich: It absolutely incenses me. I was on the Arshavin bandwagon way before Arsenal picked him up and I was a loud vocal promoter of him on this site. I find it amazing how I can know more about a player than Fergie. Hell Fergie is only now cluing to Neuer and Diego. Hell I was calling the name Diego last year too. He had a chance to get both Arshavin and Diego last year at much better prices but the old man was either not interested or asleep at the wheel. The day that really gets me pissed off is the noght of the UEFA Cup final at OT when Zenit beat Rangers. Arshavin put on a magical display right there in front of Fergie who was watching in the stands and still, he never signed him. :roll:
