Follows on from here: -

http://forums.thedigitalfix.co.uk/fo...d.php?t=602697

See if this thread can last the run-in.

Only a the lack of any pens / red cards / Summerbee not able to post, stopped this ending on Saturday.

Our league to lose and our players showing a little quality - going to be a tough 3 months.

Some interesting trivia to kick off the new thread:

We have won every Premier League game in which Rooney has scored in at Old Trafford.

41 games apparently.

Well he does have a point when he says that it took a spectacular goal to win the game.
Obviously when a goal is that good it shouldn't count

He's a miserable sod but a fine footballer was Summerbee. Does his lad run a chippy or a pub near one of the grounds?

Ah, that's where he gets the chip on his shoulder.

Anyone remember him being a pundit on a Sky game about 15 years ago claiming his son was one of the best wingers in the country?

He's a fool...

He's saying they had loads of possession and created loads of chances then when he sees the actual facts, he doesn't believe in stats...

Clown.

What's so amusing is that HAD City won, City fans would have said it was evidence that they'd closed the gap - but as Utd won, it was only because of a wonder-goal

City showed their true colours tonight. Full strength against one of the worst teams in the competition and couldn't score.

They'll claim they were playing for the draw so they could beat them at home.

The goal was special, to be fair both goals for Manchester United were top draw

No Manchester City fan I know has said City 'have closed the gap' even if we had won United will finish above us this season in my opinion. I thought that City played well in patches at Old Trafford and could have got a draw, but Rooneys goal killed City off.

United won fair and square on the day and will (again only in my opinion ) go on to win the title. United have the best home record and usually win at Old Trafford. City lost there and if you read the posts by the regular City fans on this forum none of them have said United 'only' won because of a wonder goal. A goal is a goal ask Silvas backside.

Rustybin you are laughing days later at Summerbee being a bad loser, there's only one thing worse than that Try and show a bit of class, eh?

I don't really see how laughing at a clown is classless, but whatever rocks your boat

He was a total jerk though. Even Mark Lawrenson has the ability to graciously accept defeat when Liverpool lose... a good pundit needs the ability to look on both sides of the fence no matter your allegiances.
But Summerbee wasn't even attempting to listen to the other pundits opinions, and if they dared state anything he'd use that typical pensioner defence of mentioning how different things were much back in the day, or how stats don't mean anything. Did anyone see how mad he got when it was announced Giggs was chosen on the wing instead of Best on the Sky websites dream team poll thing? He wouldn't let it drop for a good 5 minutes

Who in their right minds would say that Giggs was better than Best

Yes, but think about the average age of people using the internet. A big handful of the younger United fans probably haven't seen a handful of G. Bests goals, let alone sat down and watched full games with him in. So of course the more modern players are going to dominate an online 'greatest united team' poll.
But he got so wound up about it and wouldn't let it drop

In terms of playing at the top level for 20 years and not spunking his career against the wall, Giggs ****** over Best.

In terms of service and contribution to their club, I don't think anyone will do more for Utd than Giggs. Best was certainly the more naturally talented of the two, but looking at the total of their careers, Giggs is the winner IMO.

totally... Best's legacy will always be a little tarnished for me by the way both his career and life sadly ended...

Hell of a player though!
