    Bebe :D

    Q: What did Alex Ferguson instruct you to do when you came on?
    A: He asked me not to retreat. He wanted me wide open on the line, to give quality crosses and passes. When the goal went it I didn’t know how to celebrate. Paul Scholes made a pass into the area and I finished well.

    Q: Had ever imagined that you would score from a Paul Scholes pass?
    A: Never, never (laughs)! At that time it was all a dream. One day I passed the ball through Ryan Giggs’ legs in training and he came over and told me, “Go on, you can tell your mother you did this to Ryan Giggs.”

    Q: Is it true that Alex Ferguson made you cut your hair?
    A: He advised me to do that that, yes. I went into his room and saw that he was looking at me, very seriously. ‘Hmmm, that hair.’ Of course, I cut it on the same day. In the next training he did not recognise me (laughs). I passed him several times and did not realise it was me.
    I so hope that Giggs quote is true.

    white replacing red as the home strip? or away strip and alternate?

    the white looks like a Television test image and/or something from the 90's

    League table if only goals from English players counted.

    Will André Schurrle be the next Marko Marin?

    (Chelsea wrapping up a £20m bid for Bayer Leverkusen winger - apparently identified by AVB, bids placed by RDM, and signed under Rafa)

    Class that Carrick is nominated. Often derided player despite being immense for Utd continuously.

    Yes I said continuously. Because he has.

    Carrick and Bale are my picks.

    Interesting, I'd say I agree with uglygamer. Although it's difficult to pick between Bale, Mata and Suarez but Bale just has that something that marks him out a bit.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    How the fuck has Wilshere got a nomination?! Daft. Thought Cazorla might get a nod, he's done more than Hazard, for example.

    Yeh, very suprising to see Hazard actually. Done OK, but not standout, and certainly not good enough to justify whatever his huge price tag was.

    Yeah, I'd say Cazorla definitely deserves a nod. Hazard nomination is purely based on the big price tag and the hype around him. I've noted my opinion hazard before.

    Bale and Lukaku/Benteke for me.

    RVP and Hazard for young.

    The voting is still in early March afaik, it occured right in the middle of Bale's purple patch when he won every game for Spurs, including that last minute wonder goal against West Ham. RVP hadn't scored for a month at this point. I'd put money on Bale winning it based on this alone.

    RVP single-handedly won you the title. Game over.

    Away and alternate. There'd be a full on meltdown if Warrior tried to make a home strip that wasn't red.

    Bit surprised Rafael isn't in the Young Player of the Year list. Had his best season yet at United and is considered one of the best RB's in the league.

    RVP had a better first half of the season, Bale has had a better second half. Never been too fussed about this award though, either player is a worthy winner, could probably say the same for Suarez too. I don't think any one player has been obviously way better than the others, like in other years.

    Yet he scored more goals for Arsenal last season and they DIDN'T win the title.

    It's almost as if...surely not...he hasn't single handedly done anything!

    Without RVP's goals, you'd be where Spurs are. Bale has shone in a team that has played good football in general. Man Utd, by their own standards, have been poor to average most of the season, the only highlight being RVP and the games he won for you on his own then have propelled Utd to pole position.

    He's now rediscovered some form again and his recent goals, yet again, have salvaged points for an average Utd team. Therefore he must win it.

    IMO, etc.

    I cant even remember the last time Utd won a game before RVP joined them.

    TBF, Utd won virtually every game during his barren spell.

    Edit: re the cunt, not Welbeck

    Oh dear. Someone has trouble reading:

    This is the worst MANCHESTER UNITED team for many years. Everyone who's over 12 years old can see it. Without RVP THIS SEASON UTD would be level with City or worse. Therefore, his role has been instrumental to Man Utd's resounding success.

    IN MY OPINION.

    So now you're saying that the Manchester United team WITH RVP is worse than the one last season without him.

    You're a bit weird.
