Apparently I am North Korea…

… well, blame the Sun for that.

I was contacted by the Sun a couple of days ago in some sweep stake thing, and they have drawn me to represent North Korea. I’ll support N Korea so that you don’t have to. Here’s the video:

Incidentally, our friends at RoM have been handed Brazil. He did an interview with me today, so check it out here.

Of course, I’m excited about the world cup. And I will hope to enjoy this month to the fullest.

    @Grognard: I have to agree with a lot of that, what aanoys me mate is this spending money on “punts” Obertan, Diouf, Tosic, Smalling and Hernandez for we are all gambles costing £31.5m we could have bout two very good players for that sort of money which would be more beneficial than the players mentioned.
    We used to buy one big player each season, we we fritter money away on gambles, Hernadez for £7.5m doesn’t start for fucking Mexico!! Smalling at £10m doesn’t start for Fulham, Tosic at £8m likeways for Serbia very odd business to say the least.

    @Stephen: The tosic and llajac deals were absolute jokes. And to think i was reading on the bbc 606 blog some fans were commending ferguson for making a profit on him. Just think how much we must have spent on tosic when you consider agent fees and his wages the last 18 months.
    Topping £10m most likely, that could have bought us sneijder. Its just a joke.
    I was just saying yesterday as well with tom heaton, apparently we offered him a new contract which luckily he rejected. Tom fucking heaton. I mean what the hell are we doing offering yet another contract to a player that should have been showen the door years ago. Its a joke.
    I mean i know we are hardly given a penny by the glazers but the very little they give us fergis sure does know how to piss it away.
    As you mentioned think about the money we could have saved if we’d not bought diouf, tosic, hernandez. We probably could have bought ozil for that. We are just becoming an absolute joke and it seems very few people i talk to or read from other blogs are seeing. Is this the only place in the world where the people actually get it? Because it sure as hell feels that way.
    Its great though to be surrounded by like minded people though and fans who are not glazer apologists. 3 STROKES AND YOUR OUT MALCOLM, LUHG.

    @tonymontanna4united: The most important thing to be done at this club is to get rid of Fergie’s brother who is our chief scout and then appoint Wenger as our chief scout 😆

    @Owen: 😆 I think our scouting set up is shocking right now. Why in the hell was fergusons brother ever enlisted as our chief scout. What does he know about football, or was it just yet another sentimental appointment just because hes his brother.
    I think alot of our problems come down to the areas in which we scout. Why is it every kid we scout is always from the same areas. Where are the young dutch kids being scouted, or the germans.
    I really do not understand why we spend so much time scouting areas like brazil and the south americas.
    This is real madrid/barcelona country, chances are all the best young talent from those areas have already been snapped up.
    Even worse is that the kids from those areas grow up idolising real and barca so even if we do find a gem chances are they want to leave to join their dream club when theyre older.
    Why are we not scouting different areas. The dutch have consistently been producing top young players for years. Why then do we not look in that area?
    The germans right now have about 6/7 quality young players in their team. Once upon a time they were unknowns, why then are we not establishing links in germany and tapping into their ring of talent.
    Just strikes me as laziness and ferguson being short sighted. Does he not think he can find any gems from other countries than south america/portugal.
    Or does he not care becuase he is riding into the sunset soon, or because his brother runs it all and he lets him scout out of sentimentality rather than seeing if he is actually good at his job.
    As grognard has said many times this club is becoming stale, and its time changes were made. Like when ferguson came in he changed everything from the top to the bottom.
    Well the same needs to happen here. Everything from the owners, to the staff to the scouting system needs to be revised. Sadly i think things seem to be set in stone these days. Fergies law.

    @CraigMc: 😆 Yeah i would too its just hes had 2 strokes already and i saw thousands of the stickers around the city with the caption “3 strokes and your out”.
    Just sounded funny at the time, anyone else seen this?

    Anyone else been hearing weve signed some guy from marseilles. Mathieu Valbuena, 25 apparently in the french squad. Word going around weve signed him for 12m euros. Would fit our past transfer policy. Sign some unknown, make out hes the next zidane 😆 Anyone seen or heard of him? Anyone else been hearing this rumour. Apparently the guy is set to start today against mexico for france, so if we have signed him we get to see a close up of him tonight.

    @tonymontanna4united: He is a regular for Marseilles.He scored against Pools at Anfield.He has never scored more than 5 goals in a season.He is an attacking midfielder and has some health issues.He has a contract till 2013.
    But no where i found we have signed him.

    @Owen: Ok mate, its just a few people saying weve signed him. Probably a boolocks rumour but recently this is the kind of transfer we have been making so who knows. Hope not though, i mean i havent seen him but i would much rather save up and get a top quality AM rather than yet another unknown who may or may not hit the big time.

    @tonymontanna4united: For 12 millions,we can get Van Der Vaart.

    @Owen: I know mate. Hmm so its a choice of this guy or vdv? Tough choice 😆
    But i guess it would follow our recent transfer buys. Buy unknowns for decent money and hope they turn out to be quality. Tbh i wouldnt be surprised if we got him.
    Its just more money probably pissed away. Money which as you said could buy a quality player like vdv. Lets see what happens.

    Really late reply but yeah i am a South African. Suffering from early exit pain. Was always going to happen when thinking without the emotional patriotism baggage but it would have been fantastic to go through.

    I live in Cape Town so am going to most games played here. Gonna see England vs Algeria tonight. Hope Rooney gets on the score sheet.
