Live - Man Utd v Newcastle

Premier League
comment on the article

No season is fully under way until Manchester United get involved, isn't that right, footy fans?

After champions Chelsea showcased their brilliance on Saturday and Spurs, Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal all had to be content with a point, the focus turns to Old Trafford this evening as the Red Devils get under way.

Their visitors are Championship champions Newcastle United, who took relegation two seasons ago on the chin and bounced back at the first time of asking in hugely impressive fashion.

You know as well as I do that games between these boys are very rarely dull, so where's your money for this one?

Follow it all on the BBC website from 1900 BST.

So tiring educating Mancs on what goes on in the real world. Though they would actually need education and jobs to understand that though I guess.
-----------------------------------------------
Other teams have PR machines too, don't you know, while media companies have the opportunity to use whatever source material they wish to draw on, not just that from the Utd PR department. Is that 'real world' enough for you?

If you can read my comment and interpret that by thinking that I believe in various conspiracy theories, then clearly your sense of irony is somewhat lacking.

Oh and by the way, a global organisation as large as Man Utd would certainly outsource their PR to an external company, so you're wrong as well as being desperately humourless.

Anyone who has watched his career will have noticed just how underrated the guy is. He is pure genius and I cant think of many other attacking midfielders of during the time of his peak who were better than him.
-------------------------------------------------------


UNDERRATED? Are you completley barmy? Do you know how many Manchester United fans overrate him?

Yes, he is and was a very, very classy and creative player and he is one of England's legendary midfielders, but the fact that people, mainly Man U fans, keep boasting about him all the time, well, it just gets irritating, to be frank.

He may have been praised by all those other Legends that I haven't quoted, but I can tell you for sure he is not up there with them.

But that doesn't deny his quality and vision.

You're the only one banging on about conspiracy theories as some sort of argument against my very valid point about United's PR. Then, somehow, when I at no time insinuate that you actually believe in these theories, somehow my sense of irony is lacking!

Muppet would be the word that springs to mind now. Though you are right, I'm sure ManU outsource their PR. Though, actually, the larger the company, the more chance they have an in-house PR department. You think BP don't have in-house people for that?

Once again, no charge for the education.

bye bye now.

Two contradictory statements. Is that your idea of education? God, I hope you're not a teacher!

Oh good grief.

OK, let's outline it for you. You mentioned "United's PR machine" as if they had some kind of sinister capacity to influence the opinion of anyone who'd ever watched Scholes play.

By way of taking the p|ss out of this frankly preposterous notion (not 'very valid point'), I ironically likened your deluded ramblings to those of conspiracy theorists who believe in Roswell, 9/11 inside job etc etc.

With me? Good.

If you don't think that I believe in these things, why are you subsequently invoking them to aid your argument that it is me that is deluded, and not you?

And finally, as you admit "I'm sure ManU outsource their PR", which invalidates your original bit of brain-spaff on yet another leve.

I guarantee you that if you attempt to respond to this post, you'll look like an even bigger be||end than you already do.

So why don't you do 606 and yourself a favour and go to bed?



Oh, btw, what it United's "PR Machine" that made Reina think he was playing rugby yesterday?

TRY!

<laugh>

MexFan
People who live in Green Houses shouldn't throw stones.
How many times do i hear Mexican media pronunce "Ian" as iron.
But saying that, Mexican media use Mexican phonetics and British media use British phonetic. So, the pronunciation would be different, wouldn't it.

Thank you
