A stump for the chumps of England

When I started this blog, I had an idea of I could talk extensively about football and sports in general, meet and greet some other like-minded bloggers and friends alike, and wax lyrical about my beloved Manchester United.

I wanted to keep this spot clean, clever, informative and discussive, and steer clear of trivial gossip and rants.

But things have not gone the way I thought it would, and if I may paraphrase my favourite cartoon character Popeye: "I has taken all I can takes, and I can't takes it no more!"

What the fuck is up at Old Trafford?
We have become impotent on the transfer market. All hope rekindled last week has fizzled out like the last hiss on a soggy twig in the furnace. Hiss 1. Hiss 2. And Hiss 3.

No Gatusso signing, in spite of more than a year's worth of romancing. No pride-swallowing Vieira. No Ballack. No Obi Mikel. Not even Kuszczak from West Bromwich bloody-Albion! And now certainly no Javier Mascherano.

Instead, we get this near-retirement geriatric.

Alex... WTF?

i thought that deal broke down..apparently alex thinks his youngsters are good enuff to take on the rest of the league...at this stage...im more aware of the threat possessed by spurs to knock u guys off the top 4..dont worry.. the transfer window doesnt close for another two whole weeks..a lot could happen

Daniel Franklin Gomez said...

I still don't believe that Carrick is worth 18.6 million. English players are so overpriced these days.

Kenny Ng said...

I really 'no eye see' Man Utd anymore even I'm support this club more than 20 years!!! Remember when they lost the bid for Ronaldinho? Now again lost Ballack, Mascherano, Viera... No more Ruud. This is the first time I ever seen they never spend wisely. Should Alex Fergeson step down? Ask yourself.

Mr D said...

Well the malaysians still love ManU even though not a decent footballer those. Guess that explains Malaysians world ranking....

Mamabola said...

Oh my goodness... you said the "F" word???

*gasps*

Perhaps it's time for Fergie to spend time with his grandchildren in Scotland?

I don't understand him letting go of rude but keeping that solsjaer (how do you spell his name?).

Mirebella said...

I've been maintaining that Fergie - as much as we love what he has done for Man Utd - has to leave. He should and ought to leave whilst on a high note.

My sentiments might come and bite me back in the butt should Man Utd win this season tho ...lol.. oh well, thats the price one pays for being a fan hey ;-)

Hate to say this..but MU sucks. Just putting more salt into the wound. :p

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog.
Btw, I've been reading your blog since the start of the World Cup but I've never commented here. :p
Hope you'll visit me again soon. :D

Jemima said...

Carrick lasted just only 14 minutes in the game against Ajax. That was terribly disappointing although it's the result of a misfortune tackle. :(((

Ohh..that's just my 2 sens worth. :p

Keropok said...

Watch youself, Shabby... you laugh any harder you gonna shit yourself.

Though it won't be the first time a Spurs fan had soil between his legs... *ahaks*

A lot could happen means there's more room for another half-past-six signing or two at Old Traffod cickciggys.

I agree with Daniel, a Brit certainly can't be worth that much!!!

Keropok said...

It all went downhill after that last 2003 season, Kenny.. SAF should have just left then.

Mr D... last time I heard, you were still pandering your Malaysian / Batu Pahat roots about. Now come and slam us Malaysians ah? Blardy hell!!!

Can you blame me for swearing at monkey's like these, Mamabola?

Keropok said...

Oi! Watch it Lily... I may like you, but that's no reason to knock Solksjaer. In my books, he can do no wrong.

Ruud on the other had is a whiner, whinger and a (6 letter word, rhymes with ANCHOR) we could do without!

Keropok said...

Ah so many new friends / visitors. Thanks for stopping by Mirebella, Ghost, Jemima... come back soon.

Why the frown, Doreen?

spiller said...

yah, i dun understand why Alex goes for Senna, instead of Sorin or even Riquelme.

just like Rafe wanted to buy Kuyt even after his poor WC performance. damn pissed right?

but anyway, the deadline is still 3 weeks away, and i'm pretty sure Alex will bring more players in.

Keropok said...

That's what I'm afraid of Spiller!

Desparil said...

we bought that bugger already ka?

at least he looks like a tough SOB, something we've been missing since keano.

Mong said...

I can smell the off-seaon lethargy from Senna's sewat on your blog, Keropok!!!!!!!

WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!! The season 06/07 is upon us, soon it will be 5 years since Manyoo won anything of note!
