I'd say Baines is the only one at Everton who could be a UTD quality player, plus Utd need the left back position strenghtening. Never been a big fan of Sideshow Bob though. He's far better in his own mind than in reality.

Hopefully a decade or more of sheer frustration and disappointment awaits the plastics :hyper:

And if we don't get that, at least the rest of us will have the silver lining of being able to laugh at more of your Mystic Moon predictions... :yeahright:

UTD fans are going to find out what it's like to follow any other club. The era is over

I hope they do go for Moyes. Will make their fall all the swifter.

Uniteds collapse starts here

However I reckon (not that it's worth much these days) they will go for someone who has been there and got several t-shirts as they cannot afford another post-busby collapse

I'd say Mirallas, Baines, Jagielka are good enough to play for United whilst Fellaini is tailor made to play for them. Filthy cheat!!

I replied to your post that contained my quote and the word "hopefully"

I'll remember next time that if you quote a single post of mine I then have consider every other post I've ever made before, just in case you make an edit to include it, before replying

I'm sure deep down you know that I hope Man Utd fall rather than know for definite that they will.

Unless I really need to put, I hope, hopefully, I reckon they could, before every post

EDIT: Rants deleted. bad morning :oops:

It was only a playful jibe at the fact you'd made a number of bold statements predicting Utd's downfall over the past couple of days, didn't know you were having a bad day. Sorry. I thought it followed on naturally from the what you'd said in the bit I quoted, and didn't anticipate that you would interpret "predictions" as referring only to the quote as I used the plural and you clearly weren't making a prediction in that particular post. But despite your frequent complaints that I'm "pedantic", you assumed either I'd missed the word "hopefully" or didn't understand what it meant... :lol: Give me some credit that I knew what you meant and my post should make more sense. ;)

Every day is a bad day for me it seems when it comes to Rovers, my expectation levels are so low, :oops:

Fergie leaving is the brightest spot, football wise, for about 3 years :(
