Nice to see we are all getting along well

Fair play, your favourites sum up everything I respect about United... Keane, Irwin and Scholes.

Wish we dad a Keane type captain, much as I love Gerrard as a player.

That's funny, he has a little hissy fit about me making judgements of him, whilst making sweeping judgements himself.

The lack of self-awareness amongst scousers is always amusing.

Friends in the Stretty? Where do they sit? I might even know them.

So why do they hang out with gobby Liverpool fans, who don't even bother turning up for their Thursday Night Channel 5 games (league games are OK though), and call it a 'boycott'. laugh

ok
you know it's funny , I was thinking about Gerrard as Captain and wondering if he was the right type for the job ( other than the football displays) . he seems to be quite introvert and maybe not the best in the role , then today I read in the times that he called and texted the younger players after the C cup defeat and tried to lift them etc ...so maybe he is ? that said I think keano was a special captain , as a United fan he could do no wrong ...even when he got sent for giving it some player ...it was seemingly always the right thing to do er if you know what I mean

Whateer you may think of keane, he was a damn good leader and a damn good player. But there are different sorts of captains, and Keane is a sort shouty leader of men and Gerrard is more sort of a lead by example type, and soft speaking.

We're crying out for the Keane type... Gerrard was an embarassment at times yesterday, shirking responsibility and shrugging his shoulders.

Carragher was more skipper than him.

Why do so many MU fans vent their sad spleen on matters relating to LFC? I've never even contemplated getting on an MU 606 forum - that's their job. So if you've got nothing constructive to say - clear off. And that goes for any LFC fans who may be acting similarly on MU's 606 comments - don't lower yourselves.

Strange actually because both clubs seem to have the same problem. American owners who have indebted the Club and whom the fans understandably don't like. However the Glaziers haven't caused the havoc that Hicks and Gillette have, probably because they seem to have better control of their finances and because, for the past six years, they have had a better and even more devious manager - than Benitez will ever be.

Finally, I've got to the subject of this thread! Benitez is probably right about the football knowledge of the current LFC trio but I, for one, will be forever in their debt just for getting rid of Benitez.

What we needed, when they were appointed, was financial know how, something Benitez (unlike Wenger) never understood. He obviously thought that every time he spent unwisely (which was most of the time) the board would bail him out and for too long they did. Soon we will know if they have the financial know how to rid the club of debt with new owners, committed to rebuilding the club on the pitch - far more important than the new stadium, however desirable and necessary that is in the long term.

Strangely, now Rafa's got an owner he believes understands soccer, he's only a coach NOT a manager. Perhaps his owner does understand soccer - ENOUGH SAID? Now we wait to see how Inter do in their League; then we will know if the owner does understand soccer and if Benitez knows how to coach!
